    Month/Cycle: 2/2
    Cycle Day/DPO: 18/no clue 
    Timing: no clue
    Typical LP length: now I’m wondering
    Testing: nada
    R/R: I’m so lost and so stressed. Woke up this morning after barely sleeping last night to a very single solid line, which is rare for me. I have no clue if I peaked this month, my temps don’t make sense, and I’m wondering if I haven’t because of my stress. Think I will test one more time this evening but wondering if I missed this month entirely, which really screws up all our plans. I really also need to get this stress under control, it is physically impacting me in every which way.
    CS/Q: nada
    GTKY: 7

    Timing: good-ish?
    Typical LP length: 12-ish
    Testing: Saturday
    R/R: I need someone to smack me. I'm having PMS symptoms so I'm pretty sure I'm getting AF early so I'm pretty confident I'm out yet I still want to  test 24/7.. why do I do this to myself?!
    CS/Q:nothing to see.

  • @chopchop25 is it possible you just haven't o'd yet instead of missing it?

  • @rosebud332 - i am also so ready for this week to be over.  Actually this whole month.  Time is dragging!

    Month/Cycle: 4/4
    Cycle Day/DPO: 16/2
    Timing: ehhhhh
    Typical LP length: 14 days
    Testing: nope
    R/R: I'm a total nerd for the olympics, and i just want them to be here alreadyyyyyyy.  Come on, February!!
    CS/Q: 
    GTKY: Stolen from WTO

    So i got 9, and i am pretty sure it will remain that way, because i have zero desire to do the remaining things.  (zip-lining? get out.  Cruise ship? never.  Skinny dipping?  Nobody deserve that eye punishment.)  I really feel I've learned a lot about myself thanks to todays GTKY.

  • @kristah2 I am hoping but going from faint second line to zero second line feels like I’m not heading that way. 

    @jengibre_zorro I absolutely love the olympics, too! Do you have a favorite winter sport to watch?
  • @chopchop25 Omg. I was just telling myself today about getting my stress under control. I have had zero patience the last couple months and I can tell my bp raises quickly often. I will be researching some ideas on keeping my stress down. Yoga maybe? Some meditation? If you find anything that works for you...please share with me!
    @jengibre_zorro Cruises are sooo much fun! I've been on two 7 day cruises, and I am DYING to go on another one. It's one of the most stress free vacations to me because pretty much everything is planned, and you don't have to worry about driving places and paying extra. SO MUCH FUN!!!

    Month/Cycle: 1/1
    Cycle Day/DPO: 27/14?
    Timing: -5, -3, -1, 0, +2
    Typical LP length: 15?
    Testing: Will test again Saturday if AF doesn't show up before then.
    R/R: I've started to super question if I really knew when I O this month. Like...I swear I knew for certain, but now I don't know. My cycles have been SO wacky since October 2017. I legit had a 13 day cycle in November, then a 17 day in December, then 26...It's been very different every month. I am hoping that my cycles start to line up better soon since I got my IUD removed. I used to have pretty consistent cycles until recently. I also asked hubby what he thought about using ODK's and keeping track of basil body temp next month and he was like "Calm down...it'll happen...we should first focus on eating healthy and everything.". I'm thinking... "why not just do everything?!". I also feel guilty because we know it's his sperm count that is the main problem (not the only, because I personally need to get my health in check)...but I don't want to make him feel bad or guilty or hurt his male ego by telling him all the things he should do to help his sperm...But he is SO sweet and I know deep down it won't bother him, I still don't like to bring it up.

  • @Whitmore1027 I don't really talk about OPK's with H. I don't hide them but I also don't take them right in front of him. He knew I had ordered some the first time we were TTC. BUT we also agreed that I wouldn't get into OPK's and BBT until after 3 months of trying. He wanted to do 3 months of just seeing how it goes before we added the pressure.This time around we're somewhat following the same thing but I am taking OPK's. But he doesn't really question, I just tell him when I'm O - he doesn't ask how I know. It works for us.

  • @Whitmore1027 I just started with the Mindfulness app this morning. Our office is all about it, so I kicked off the Basics foundation this morning for 3 minutes. It was honestly amazing, my chest already feels less tight. Can’t wait to make this a part of my morning routine (my friend does it right before bed and says it helps her fall asleep ASAP.)
  • @chopchop25 - I agree with @kristah2....maybe the stress is delaying it?  I know mine will definitely come later during times of stress.  Hoping you get some clarity soon, either way!  (and figure skating, gahhhh, so good!)

    @kristah2 - i am in the same boat...i feel like PMS symptoms start right after O all the way to AF. bodies are weird

    @Whitmore1027 - i know, i hear the best things about cruises, but the idea of being confined to a boat just gives me alllll the anxiety.  I feel like i would need to be drugged the whole time, lol.  
  • @jengibre_zorro ; - you'd think you're confined to a boat the whole time but I feel like you actually don't get ENOUGH time on the boat. With all the stops you hardly get to enjoy all the things the boat has to offer!
    jengibre_zorro
  • @kristah2 That's actually a really good idea! I think the only thing is that we are super tight with money and we are both always super aware of what we buy. Which means I technically have to get his input on even just buying them. Do you have a recommendation on what I could get that's not super expensive? Perhaps waiting 3 months is a good idea for us to do. And I may be able to save up some money first.

    @chopchop25 Oh awesome!! I will look into that app asap!  I love how there is an app for everything... "Have stress? There's an app for that!" HAHA!

    @jengibre_zorro I totally could understand that! Although the ship is SO SO much bigger than it seems. Like, I always got lost and their are always things to do, you literally can't do everything. There's trivia, games, casino, shows, swimming, eating, spa, karaoke etc.  So as long as you stay busy or just lay out on the deck, you kind of forget that you are stuck on a ship. Then of course when you get to port, you usually have from about 8am-4pm to hang out on dry land. Man...this is making me sad because I want to go on another cruise so bad!! lol.

  • @chopchop25 It could definitely be the stress. I would try doing some yoga maybe if you are up for it. It's been helping me manage my stress during the TWW. If your cycles are longer though or if you do have a shorter LP it could just be that you O later than you thought. I will have to look into that app you mentioned. 
    @kristah2 Same! Except AF isn't due for another week and a half. I'm starting to just get angry. I'm definitely bummed that I'm clearly not pg, but do I really have to be cramping for the entire TWW?! REALLY?! Ugh. So angry today. I need a margarita. Is 9 am too early for that?
    @Whitmore1027 I highly recommend yoga! Yoga with Adrienne on Youtube is great and it's the one pretty much everyone recommends. I also like to just look up fertility yoga because I'm crazy obsessed. lol This is my first cycle using OPKs and I almost feel like it added more stress. I don't know if I will use them next month. I had three days of positive OPKs before I stopped testing so I'm completely guessing on when I ovulated. I refuse to temp because I'm cheap and I don't want to buy a thermometer. I almost think we would have been better off doing the EOD plan during fertile week because if I am wrong about when I O'd then our timing really sucked. 

    Month/Cycle: 7/5 (1 loss 1 benched)
    Cycle Day/DPO: 26/5
    Timing:-2,-1
    Typical LP length: 14 days
    Testing: I was going to test this weekend, but I'm like 99% sure I'm out so I might not bother and just wait for AF. At the same time though, I have that giant box of tests so does it really matter if I waste one?
    R/R: I'm just feeling angry today. I think I'm fully accepting now that I'm not pg this cycle. I know it's really early and I'm not out until I'm out, but I just feel like it's not this month and I'm feeling a little angry about it. I can't explain it, I just know that I'm not. I don't even care if my anger is unreasonable at this point. I'll get over it, but for now I'm letting myself feel all the feelings.

  • @Whitmore1027 @acciocoffee not sure why I capitalized mindfulness earlier, no coffee yet. The app is called Headspace (emblem/logo is an orange circle.)
  • @chopchop25  sorry for the confusion with the OPKs, I just started using them and bought the cheap Wondfo’s off amazon, what brand are you using?
    @kristah2  sorry for the PMS symptoms but I’m totally with you on wanting to test, I almost tested this morning (insert eye roll emoji) but bc we said we wouldn’t test til Saturday I told myself “don’t be dumb” haha. Hopefully they aren’t PMS symptoms!
    @jengibre_zorro  I’m ready for the Olympics too! But I have to disagree zip lining and cruise ships are AMAZING!

    Month/Cycle: 5/6
    Cycle Day/DPO: 19/7
    Timing: ehh I think still decent
    Typical LP length: 12ish
    Testing: Saturday, 2 more sleeps haha
    R/R: I got some great coffee this morning and treated myself to a bacon cheddar scone :) rant - I over slept so didn’t get my morning workout in and after that scone and latte I have to make sure I do it tonight!
    CS/Q: so I use FF and last cycle I quit temping after cross hairs, well I kept it up this cycle. I took my temp this morning and when I entered the number FF moved my O day, well I re-temped and my temp was 0.2 lower so I put that in and Ff moved my crosshairs back to the day I think I actually O’d (based on CM, ovulation pains, and a temp dip). For those of you who temp regularly, has this happened? I just find it crazy that 0.2 would make that much of a difference? I’ll try and post my chart but I’m on mobile so forgive me if it messes up

  • @nmbrcrnchr1 can we hold each other accountable for evening workouts tonight?
    And I'm now pitting clear blue and first response or whatever it's called against each other. May go digital next month after everyone's reviews on WTO.

  • @chopchop25 I use the [email protected] OPKs off Amazon and they work with an app called PreMom where you take pictures of your tests and it lines them up for you. It's pretty convenient. I do think digital would be great if it weren't for the price.

    CS/Q: I can't tell if my high temps are really because they are high or because I sleep restlessly in the early morning. Whatever. Good charts mean nothing in my experience.

  • Will check that out @acciocoffee! Thanks! 
  • @Whitmore1027 I bought the wongfo brand from amazon. It had 40 OPK's and 10 HPT I think. Good price and super cheap!
    @acciocoffee it's never too early for a margarita! And it's hard being negative thinking you're out so early but I totally get it and I feel the same way. 
    @nmbrcrnchr1 I was wondering how you were holding you! You are giving me motivation to make it until Saturday - I  totally almost tested yesterday. I don't know why I want to so bad when I'm the PMS queen right now. and @chopchop25 ; I'm also doing an evening work out tonight - accountability at its finest!

    @chopchop25 I’m so sorry you feel so lost/stressed. Is this your first month using OPKs?
    @jengibre_zorro Why would you never go on a cruise ship? I love cruises!
    @acciocoffee I also feel 99% out this cycle too. I was so hopeful and now I’m just sad. I’m trying really hard to let it go and be excited about February. I decided not to test either and just WFAF. It made me feel better when I made that decision because seeing a BFN would be really crushing. 5 DPO is still really early though, FX that you are wrong about your feelings <3
    @nmbrcrnchr1 Your bacon and cheddar scone sounds so amazing. Good for you for still doing your workout tonight.
    @galactickates I’m so sorry about your awful dream. I have dreams sometimes where DH says he’s not in love with me anymore and the panic I feel is so terrible. Are you guys doing better today?

  • The boom hasn't hit that area (at least yet.) Land when you get out of the city areas is plentiful and reasonable, especially when compared to CA, WA, or the northeast.
    galactickateseleven_
  • What @chopchop25 said... trust me I know first hand how ridiculous prices are in the city vs ANYWHERE else.  It's awful.  I'm glad we bought when we did.  We got a good deal on our house.  Similar Houses to the one we bought are popping up within only a few miles of our house with only 200 sq ft more for 689k!!!!!! Not a typo. I sent H this mansion in Texas with a backyard that had a pool straight out of a magazine.  5000 sq ft or something equally ridiculous for 450k. We could have bought that house if we lived there!  It's so unfair! I started looking in Vancouver and Scappoose or even just a few miles south and it was drastically cheaper with acreage.  You've found my hot button right now lol

  • @galactickates ditto on the house buying story. I couldn't afford our house a year later.

    Side note, I just booked a trip to Hawaii with my girlfriends from work! It's so nice to look forward to something while waiting for a BFN. H is SO supportive of me taking some time for myself, even though he really wants to go. He's the freaking best and I don't even know how to express my gratitude.

  • @acciocoffee Thanks for the recommendation! I will look for her videos today! I didn't even know where to start, so that helps a lot. And yeah I can see how in a way that can be more stressful. I figure I will at least wait a couple more months before I attempt them. And I am the same with the thermometer. I REALLY don't want to buy one...so I'll give that a few months too. haha. I am sorry your feeling so angry. I do believe it's okay to let those emotions in and recognize them. Just to remember to try not to let them over take you too much. I hope those feelings pass soon so you can feel some peace! Love the Harry Gif!
    @chopchop25 Haha! Their is totally a "mindfullness" app. So perhaps that one would work too? lol!
