GTKY : What is your favourite thing about yourself?
Re: WTO Thursday 5/31
WAYDTGKU: Acupuncture, BBT, PCOS diet, supplements
R/R: Non TTC related, but its super hot here today. It isn't even June and we are already set to get a lot of 100 degree days. Every summer I'm like why do I live here??
CS/Q: I think today has a REALLY good chance of being O day. I had positive cheapie OPKs yesterday. Today I woke up and my nipples are really sensitive/hurting (which has been my big O sign in the past). I swear if I don't get an increased temp tomorrow I will cry. I have all the signs of it happening, but am still afraid it won't actually happen.
GTKY : What is your favourite thing about yourself? I think I have good intuition. Usually when I follow it, it seems like I make the right choices.
WAYDTGKU: pnv, b-complex vitamins, bbt, cm, opks
R/R: our organization was picked as outstanding business of the year for our involvement with our state’s Special Olympics games, so I get to declare the games open tomorrow! I’ve been volunteering and a clinical director for them for years and I’ve always wanted to do that. So fun!
CS/Q: obviously nothing to see this month yet
GTKY : What is your favourite thing about yourself?
Dedication and reliability. When I say I am going to do something, I do. At times this can be to a fault but I like that I can be counted on.
@quidditchcapn1120 I'm sorry about CD 1, but congratulations on the award! That is fantastic!
WAYDTGKU: HIO - difficult with the heat
R/R: All the difficult clients came out this week. Everyone is telling me it is because of the full moon. I blame the heat. Yet another week I want to be done. It doesn't help that the financial stress is kicking in. Just want to be married and have everything settle down. Rave: Almost Friday. It will be quieter in the office tomorrow. Hopefully, I won't feel like I'm drowning in work. It isn't true, but I feel that way. Sun is shining and I can't wait until 5pm when I can lay on my deck.
GTKY : What is your favourite thing about yourself? My sense of humour. I have gotten through some tough spots by learning to laugh. I think that is a lesson reinforced by Anne of Green Gables.
@quidditchcapn1120 Sorry for CD1. That is really awesome about the award though. Really neat.
@meri-mac Hey CD Buddy! Bring on 5pm. I am totally with you with this week. Stick me with a fork, I am done!
Glad all those clients are gone though. Enjoy your sunny evening.
Month/Cycle: 12/13 (4 benched)
WAYDTGKU: hio, opk, pnv, all the supplements, acupuncture
R/R: Pretty sure that either today or tomorrow is O day. I should be able to confirm once I get home and take another OPK. Judging by the sudden cramps I am experiencing, I would say its today. Hopefully H is up for another round tonight.
GTKY : What is your favourite thing about yourself? Hmmm.....I don't know really. I am very empathetic and caring.
WAYDTGKU: All the things. SHG tomorrow.
R/R: Finally got the SA results back. The results couldn’t have been better which is equal parts awesome and frustrating.
GTKY: What is your favourite thing about yourself? I'd say my empathy. My H always jokes that I was born with "too many empathies" but in reality it's a big part of who I am and I choose to embrace it.
@meri-mac Ugh I'm sorry. I hate difficult clients.
@nitnat007 Yay for O day!
@Sparty18 That is good that everything came back good, but I can see how it is frustrating too
@nitnat007 @sparklingdiamond I hope your temps jump tomorrow.
@meri-mac enjoy the sun! Sunbathing is an awesome hobby that I never have time for anymore. And also, the humidity and mosquitos here are brutal.
@Sparty18 I hope the rest of your testing can begin to provide some answers.
WAYDTGKU: pnv, bbt, cm, start opk’s tomorrow.
R/R: rant- I spent all day waiting in a government office to get me new work ID. Rave- I got a good long way into my book I’m reading with TB Book Club.
CS/Q: Does it matter if you do OPK’s with FMU? I feel like I remember it being recommended that you not use fmu.
GTKY : What is your favourite thing about yourself? I like to think of myself as a kind person. I also think I’m pretty intelligent.
@Sparty18 Yay for good SA results. At least this is one more thing to cross off the list
@meggyme I am praying there is a breathe of wind at my place to keep the black flies away. What book are you reading (sorry if someone asked this already) ?
WAYDTGKU: Nothing yet.
R/R: Busy again, sorry ladies for not participating much
CS/Q: Nothing to see yet
GTKY : What is your favourite thing about yourself? My hair. It's really long. It's wavy and curly, but not so much that I can't easily blow dry it to make it straight. It does whatever I want it to do.

@suzycupcake I’m jealous of your hair. I have similar wavy/curly hair but it never seems to want to do either in a cute, easy to style way. I keep thinking of doing one of the no shampoo routines to see if that helps, but I can’t stand my hair being oily.
