GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories?
Re: WTO FriYay!! - 05/25
R/R: Rant: My cat kept waking me up this morning because he's a cuddle bug and likes to be up in my face! Rave: I did get my second high temperature.. hoping for 1 more tomorrow! I feel like I'll probably wake up earlier than usual because I'll be stressing about the dang bbt! Buuut 3 day weekend, yay! Seeing friends tonight and pool party tomorrow!
CS/Q: Not too much to see
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? I do believe in spirits but I don't have any stories of my own!
WAYDTGKU: Nothing right now. Maybe keeping stress levels low?
R/R: It is Friday. Thank goodness. Why is it that the 4 day weeks feel longer than the 5 day weeks? Internal time sucks!
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? I do not believe in ghosts, but I do love a good ghost story (not that I have any ). Each province puts out a book full of ghost stories from their lore which is quite interesting. You find them at touristy places, but they are fun.
WAYDTGKU: The usual
R/R: Rant: Friday! I still don't have as much billable work as I'd like at the moment after completing a big filing this week, but I'm not going to stress just yet. Looking forward to the weekend. We're road-tripping down to Texas where I'm from, then I'm going to work in our Houston office for a week and return next weekend with a new puppy. So Tex-Mex and puppies to look forward to.
CS/Q: I got nothing
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? Nah. I used to love ghost stories, though, despite the fact that some of them really freaked me out and caused me to lose a lot of sleep as a kid.
@meladams10, my dog did the same thing to me last night! She's gotten into the habit of deciding she needs breakfast at 6AM and likes to make sure we're up to give it to her.
@meri-mac, cool about the ghost story books; I'd never heard about that before.
@meladams10 My cat is the same. DH always boots him away from his side and he always marches right over to mine. If DH is awake sometimes he actually has to kick him off of me because he literally is a big cat and a bit of a pillow hog. Also fingers crossed on a third high temp!
WAYDTGKU: BBT, Opks, the usual.
R/R: Ugh so I have been MIA because I got the stomach flu and was incapable of doing anything. We had a long weekend so of course work is normally extremely busy on the day after holiday. So by missing that day it set my whole week back and I'm only catching up now. Another rant is that because I was sick I ended up having to skip a day of temping when I should have been temping and a few of my temps were out of wack because I didn't sleep well for a few nights. I have short cycles on average and sometimes they get really short...so my concern was that O would be today or even yesterday if I had one of those weird cycles and of course since I've messed up my temps I won't see the shift. Then I went and forgot to bring opks to work yesterday. Today I can say that I don't think I O'd yesterday but It could be soon, hopefully my weekend temps start telling me more. I guess I should remember that in the 11 months I tracked bbt when TTC the first time and in the 6 months I did to prevent later that I only had 2 of those 21-22 day cycles. I probably need to chill. haha.
Also I completely lost my voice today and think I have laryngitis. This week needs to end. Also sorry for the novel.
CS/Q: naah, nothing to see.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? No I don't really. But I do love me a good ghost story. Although I end up scaring myself from being able to walk around my house alone haha.
CD: My body is WEIRD! I might be in TWW who knows?!
WAYDTGKU: BD, opks came yesterday woohooo for pee sticks! Charting someday
R/R: I do not want to do the work today but I have lots of work to do. I cam ein early so I can get out of here. I'm also pretty much useless after 3 pm work wise.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? I believe in spirits but I don't know about ghosts. I know I feel loved ones who've passed around me a lot but it's a comforting thing.
Baby girl #1 7/11/13

Baby Boy Due 2/16/19!
@meladams10 Aw poor cuddly kitty. Mine aren't allowed in the bedroom when we sleep because they like to keep me up. They like to play fetch and get under the covers. I am a light sleeper so that is a hard no lol. Yay for a long weekend. Have a great time at the pool party!
@meri-mac The short weeks are always worse! Thank goodness this is it though, so ready to get out of here now. We have a bunch of haunted places here on the East coast. There is a great little abandoned village that we are wanting to check out still.
@hoodevil0611 Puppy!!!!! I think you may have mentioned this before, but what kind of puppy are you getting? pictures please. Lots and lots! Have a great road trip.
@Venessa88 Sorry you got sick, but I am glad that you are feeling better now in time to enjoy the weekend. FX that you get clear indication of O and that this wasn't one of those weird cycles for you.
@Erinm278 I think it should be a thing that we are able to leave work at 3pm on a Friday! Lets make it happen.
Month/Cycle: 12/13 (benched a few)
WAYDTGKU: all the things
R/R: MH was a blanket hog last night. It was horrible. He was basically doing a death roll with the covers and was ending up wrapped up like he was in a cocoon. I am such a light sleeper that this was rather problematic for decent sleep. Needless to say, he got his post-it this morning alright. Just not sure he appreciated the message haha.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? I do believe in spirits to a certain extent but I have never had a direct experience, so until that happens I am a skeptic. But love a good ghost story and hike through abandoned areas.
@hoodevil0611 Sounds like a great weekend! I'll be Katy this weekend. Enjoy your week in Texas!
@Venessa88 fx you O soon and see a temp rise, and hopefully being sick doesn't mess with your temps.
WAYDTGKU: Ava, OPKs, myo-inositol
R/R: Met with the RE today for DH s/a. All good, actually really good results. So it's all me that's the "unexplained" issue. It's a stress relief for him to know he's okay. They want to do labs for AMH and HSG testing to make sure I have enough eggs/quality of eggs and then check that my tubes aren't blocked. So we'll just have to see about scheduling those some time next month. I'm looking forward to the long weekend, but unfortunately I'm sure DH's family is only going to want to talk about doctors and when were going to have a baby (like you can just chose to pop one out tomorrow).
Also, the RE said that BBT is very old school and they don't rely on it at their office because you can ovulate, but not see a temp rise for several days after in some women. So since I'm terrible at it anyways I'm just going to not even bother with it if they don't need to see it.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories?
I don't by DH does and he sincerely believes that he's had a ghost/spirit that has followed him since childhood and that same ghost/spirit is in our house now.
@hoodevil0611 I apologize if you have already answered this, but what type of puppy are you getting? And can we have photos?
@Venessa88 I'm glad you don't have flu anymore, but it sucks about the laryngitis. Hopefully this weekend will give you the rest you need!
@Erinm278 Hope you get to leave early!
@nitnat007 Happy Friday to you! I do enjoy a good haunted village as well. I think that is why I like Supernatural so much Friends of mine have 2 separate duvets on their bed because they are both blanket hogs
@thrgirlwhowaited At least you have some good news and a plan. Fx for some answers soon!
@Venessa88 I hope you're feeling better. Stomach bugs are the worst. You should still be able to see a change in temps even if you're missing a couple. You might not be able to pinpoint O day, but should still be able to confirm it.
@thrgirlwhowaited that's interesting that your doctor discounts bbt. It seems to be the end all be all (aside from ultrasounds) for confirming O. I'm glad you have a plan.
WAYDTGKU: pnv, bbt, will start opk's next weekend
R/R: It's almost the weekend!!! I have a long weekend ahead of me, but I'll post that in TFAS.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? I like to believe in ghosts, and I truly believe there are things we cannot yet explain, but I also don't believe in an afterlife. I love watching ghost shows on TV though.
@Venessa88 Thank you! I hope you start feeling better soon. Also, I'm with you on these frustrating temps! Since I know so much is "riding" on this 3rd temperature, I'm sure I'll wake up a couple hours before I need to take my temp! So much anxiety on silly temperatures!!
@nitnat007 Thank you! I love that you leave post its for your DH! I should start doing that. What do you put on them... (when it's not about hogging the blankets)
@thegirlwhowaited11 Thank you! FX! I'm glad the SA came back good!! Big relief! It'll be good to get your levels tested and the HSG. The HSG is so worth it.. just to know! I've been thinking about taking a break from BBT. I get so stressed out when I'm waiting on my 3 high ones to confirm ovulation that it's probably not healthy. Some times I think we have to step back from the obsession.
@meggyme OMG that bad prom dress siggy! DYING!
WAYDTGKU: frequent sex, opks and Ava bracelet once it arrives
R/R: second period this month. Really not amused. My cycles are all over the place right now, but I guess I ovulated really quickly after the last one.
CS/Q: Not really. Hot mess chart right now that wouldn't make sense and I wasn't temping.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? Heck yeah I do. I've lived in 2 haunted houses and my family had to have an exorcism. We all felt it leave, even my dad, who never believed in anything like that.
Here's another experience of mine but it's long:
@meladams10 Sometimes it is just to remind him of things, like to take his lunch. Haha, he is awful at remembering that. But I always put something cute on there too like "you still rock my world" or just "love you". He gets a kick out of it. I leave the house before he even wakes up, so it is a way we can still connect.
@thrgirlwhowaited like @meri-mac mentioned, I am tempted to get separate duvets. It gets a bit much. Or get a king size for our queen. Glad that YH sa came back all clear. I get how that is hard on you though so *hugs*. One more step forward though. Hope you enjoy your weekend.
@nitnat007 that sounds very sweet! My post its are so small I couldn't fit much on there, but it's a sweet idea.
@thegirlwhowaited11 Glad to hear the SA came back good!
@Venessa88 I hope you're feeling better soon, that all sounds awful
@thrgirlwhowaited I meant to ask, how do you like Ava??
WAYDTGKU: All the things.
R/R: I am working from home today but really just did a crap ton of yard work that needed to be done. Let's be real, no one was really working today anyway.
CS/Q: Nope, I always take a BBT break until CD8 or so.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? I don't think I do, but I know I've heard a lot of interesting stories. My dad claims he lived in a haunted apartment back in his younger days. He had a few roommates at the time and they would come home to all of the plugged in cords in perfectly straight lines from the wall. The story has gone on long enough that I really feel like he believes it but yet... really? I don't know. *Insert shrug emoji*
WAYDTGKU: The usual
R/R: Super tired today. Still recovering from the anesthesia from my treatment this past Tuesday, so I haven't had the energy to clean up the house. Trying to find energy today.
GTKY : Do you believe in ghosts? If so do you have any good stories? I believe there's some kind of afterlife. I personally don't have any stories, but my mother has a story, though -- she used to teach at an old Catholic elementary school. Rumor was that the building was haunted. She had stayed late one day to do some work in her classroom. There were zero kids in the building, yet she heard a child laughing in the hallway. When she poked her head out into the hall, there was no one there. All the other teachers had already gone home for the day too. She was pretty creeped out.
