WAYDTGKU: HIO, OPKs, CM, PNVs
R/R: All the rants… This is probably TMI but its TTGP related so here we
go. DH and I got in a fight this morning about sex and it’s not the first time.
I’ve been having trouble getting and/or staying aroused during sex. When I was
on BCP I thought that was the culprit, but I’ve been off them for almost 3
months and it’s still sometimes a problem. It makes me feel like such a
failure. Which leads to my question…
CS/Q: Does anybody have a lube recommendation that’s good for TTGP and
just in general? DH has always been anti-lube but I’m hoping using it will take
some of the pressure off of me because I’m hyper aware of what my body is or
isn’t doing during sex.
GTKY: What's the worst gift you've ever received? MIL gave DH and I passport
holders one year for Christmas. DH doesn’t even have a passport and neither of
us had talked about going anywhere that we would need one.
@skilledsailor I hope you get the go ahead tomorrow! Sorry
you’re feeling uncomfortable. There’s nothing like wearing clothes that don’t
make you feel good to really mess with your day.
@jsnakehole what kind of soup are you going to get?
@nitnat007 that necklace sounds awful, but I’m laughing that
you considered taking it apart and repurposing it. It must have been bad if it
couldn’t have even been salvaged that way.
@SkilledSailor I totally wear black jeggings every day. They look like normal black pants and are so
comfortable! I got mine from Old
Navy. Stretchy waistband and all.
@jsnakehole Yay chicken noodle soup. I got a positive OPK
yesterday too. I wish I could wake DH up
early to BD but he wont have that lol.
@nitnat007 Sorry about CD 1.
@melbel0824 I am in a similar boat DH and awkward sex
fights. Except it’s the other way
around, he can’t stay aroused cause I put too much pressure on him. Last night was so awkward but we did get BD
in. Ugh TTGP is stressful
@kobrien827 FX for a raise!
@Stargazer1lily I am in the same but with trying to get my
husband to eat healthy… any advice??
@kristah2 All my bad gifts have been from my grandma too
@kimberbeep Clothing is definitely the worst gift… unless it’s
@matryoshkadoll I am also hoping my LP is a normal
length. This month is my first month
using OPKs so I have a better idea when O is.
@darkstar42 Sorry for your neck pain! I get neck pain all the time from my
scoliosis and chiari malformation. I have a rice bag that I warm up and drape
over my shoulders. It helps a
little. But the best is when DH gives me
@carlady2015 Cookie dough is not the same without chocolate
@blackhottamales The temperatures drop where I am too this
week… it sucks! I also take the bus and I
think I should buy a long parka for the commute.

WAYDTGKU: PNV, charting cm, OPKs
R/R: Rave. I turned an OPK positive yesterday!!! I was so
excited to finally see it. Now I know
what I’m looking for. DH and I were also
able to BD yesterday even though it was awkward as hell because of the night
before. I’m hoping we can get one more
CS/Q: Not today
GTKY: What's the worst gift you've ever received? My grandparents don’t have much money so they
always give us gifts from Walmart/Shopko/Dollar general… One year, when I was
in high school, I got a thin jean vest that had Noah’s ark and animals on it.
It was 3 sizes too big and was hideous. Thankfully
my mom was sitting next to me when I opened it and covered for me as I was trying
to suppress a giggle.
@melbel0824 As others have suggested, give preseed a go. It is very watery though. But does the trick. What an odd gift, passport holders.
@kobrien827 The cramps were not pleasant at all. I was extremely cranky when I got off the plane. FX for the raise and enjoy the party.
@kimberbeep Agreed, stay away from buying clothes for someone unless you know exactly what you are doing, or give a gift receipt and expect it to be exchanged.
@matryoshkadoll GL for CH's tomorrow.
@darkstar42 Sorry about your neck. Hope it gets better soon.
@catlady2015 NEED the chips! Me too.
@blackhottamales Home for along while thankfully. Awww I can just picture that. Super cute! Your aunt sounds like a treat. Ugh.... But how can you not like chocolate!!
@Avrilmai Haha wow! That is priceless. One really should inspect the gift before passing it along.
Thanks for the suggestion of pre-seed. I’ll have to check
I’ve actually heard good things about the betabrand yoga
work pants. I don’t own any, but friends do and love them. I have a pair of
ponte knit pants I got at BJ’s (of all places) and they’re basically like
wearing sweatpants to work because of the elastic waistband.
@kobrien827 Have so much fun tonight! I love parties,
although having one on a Wednesday is a little odd.
@stargazer1lily Ugh, brothers can be so dense sometimes.
Mine would totally have done something like that growing up too.
@kristah2 I’m dying at your grandmother’s craftiness.
@kimberpeep Thanks for the review of pre-seed lol. Maybe a
little awkward, but I appreciate it.
@matryoshkadoll Yeah, zombies aren’t really romantic.
@catlady2015 what’s the point of cookie dough without
@blackhottamales You sound like me in the winter. I don’t
want any part of my body coming in contact with the frigid air.
@southernlady07 Interesting tip about the green tea. I think
I have some at home so I’ll give that a shot.
@LJMoon6 Great job on getting busy last night and the
positive OPK! That vest sounds awful/awesomely hilarious.
@Avrilmai Re-gifting is the worst. Like if you’re going to
do it, at least make sure you remove any incriminating evidence.
@josie12367 I’m sorry for all your down feelings. I get how
hard this whole thing can be at times.
