    WAYDTGKU: lots of BD, CM, OPKs, PNV, temping

    R/R: I'll rave today...If you haven't read The Nightengale by Kristin Hannah, DO IT. I just recently finished and it was SO good. I love how much reading I get done over the summer when work is out. 

    CS/Q: finally got a + opk...I started testing way too early given my cycle length...note to self, save some $$ next month ;)

    WAYDTGKU: Tracking, PNVs

    R/R: Rave: I just love Saturdays. It's so nice to spend time with DH and today we have no plans so we've done nothing but laze around. I am getting a tiny bit antsy staying inside but it's so hot out!

  • Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD: 20

    WAYDTGKU: Prenatals, BBT, OPKs, CM

  • @ska8471 She’s my favorite author! Have you read her new book “The Great Alone”? It’s very different from “The Nightingale,” but so good! 

    @whiteswanblackswan Lazy Saturdays are the best!  

    @marebear15 Hoping your cold passes quickly and FX for CHs tomorrow! 

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD: 9

    WAYDTGKU: Just PNVs this month 

    R/R: Tonight I’m having some friends over to play cards. I feel like an old lady, but I love having card nights. 

    CS/Q: none 
  • @nanner26 I haven't read any of her others but after loving that one so much I am definitely going to try some others. In June, I read The Woman in the Window, which was more like Gone Girl style, not AS good but pretty close. PS: also love card nights...so many great games, always a good time! 

    @marebear15 sorry you have a summer cold...those are THE worst. Feel better soon! 
  • @ska8471 Thanks for the rec - I've heard it's quite good!
    @whiteswanblackswan Jealous of your lazy Saturday - I had to work today :(
    @marebear15 Ugh, I'm sorry. I hate when I feel behind on chores AND I hate being sick...double whammy. Feel better soon!
    @nanner26 I love game nights of any kind - board games, card games, etc. Have fun :)

    Month/Cycle: 3/3
    CD: 4
    WAYDTGKU: HIO, PNVs, adding OPKs this cycle
    R/R: Hubs leaves for a work trip for 10 days tomorrow :( I'm really going to miss him - we aren't apart much at all. I'll start OPKs when he gets home.

  • Month/Cycle: 7/8

    CD: 12

    WAYDTGKU: HIO, temping, OPKs 

    R/R: we're back from vacation and I'm missing it already. 


  • My first post :) 

    Month/Cycle: just decided to start trying! Have to wait a few weeks 

    CD: not a clue ! 

    WAYDTGKU: going to try that basal temperature for sure ! 

    R/R: rant for sure. TW- 
    Bf just found has testicular cancer, had a testicle removed just yesterday which is why we have now decided to start trying in 6 weeks. 

    CS/Q: question, just wondering if anyone has any experience with testicular cancer in their partners? This is all so new. I was recommended to try an online forum. I also hope I filled this out properly especially with the TW. 
  • @kels0091 - I don't have any advice for you, but am really sorry to hear of the circumstances. Maybe someone else has some insight? 

    Month/Cycle: 4/4

    CD: 7

    WAYDTGKU: CP/CM/BBT, OPKs, Supplements, Netflix and Chill

    R/R: DH is working this weekend, but it gave me some time to make/can some peach jam and a few different pickles during the day. I also got in a lot of knitting and cleaning before we had a friend over for homemade pizza and a movie! Its the small things <3

    CS/Q: My chart so far if you're wondering. I started OPKs on day 6 because I have a feeling I'm Oing very early or late. Using this month as an experiment.

  • @kels0091 Welcome to he community! Hopefully your stay here is not okng. I don't have any advice about cancer, but I have known guys with only one testicle to have many children. 

    @harrierwife Sounds like a lovely weekend! I love canning, especially apple butter. How long have your cycles been lately? An LP is not normally longer than 16 days.

  • @harrierwife "Netflix and chill" omg, love it :lol: And canned peach jam?! Yum.

    @asupernovablizzardstorm Sorry vacation is over :( Always so hard to get back to the real world.

    @kels0091 No experience personally, but welcome to the community.

    Month/Cycle: 3/3
    CD: 5
    WAYDTGKU: PNV, HIO when hubs gets home from work trip in 10 days, starting OPKs this cycle.
    R/R: Dropped hubs off at the airport :( At least I have the dog to keep me company. I'm going to make a list of things to get done while he's gone to help pass the time.

    In TTGP-related details, hubs gets home on CD15. As I've mentioned before, my cycles are SUPER irregular (33d all the way to 45d this past cycle) so I think CD12 is about when I should start using the OPKs with the understanding that I may be using them for like two weeks...But if this is a shorter cycle, I may O around the time hubs gets home, which would make for a fun reunion, haha.
  • **LURKING** @kels0091 my husband had testicular cancer, go ahead and PM me if you have any questions. 
  • @marebear15 - They've been averaging 26/27 days long, but no signs of Oing according to CP/CM/BBT so I cannot say for certain how long my LP is. My OB/GYN isn't concerned since AF is coming regularly and at a "normal" interval. She suggested I add OPKs if I wanted, but thinks my body may just need more time to regulate since coming off the nuvaring April 30th. Its just hard to be patient when it comes to this...

    @Swiftlet - hah yeah - word on the street is that HIO was recoined N&C (Netflix and Chill) by another member and fell out of use. I'm gonna bring it back! 

    And yeah, ended up making a batch of Peach jam, Peach/Plum/Ginger jam, and Apricot jam. I'll finish up the pickles this week. I stash jars and jars and jars of good stuff to give as gifts around the holidays with homemade bread or whatever.

  • @harrierwife you're quickly becoming one of my favourite people. Peach jam?! Girrrllll you're speaking my language. 
    @ska8471 that book is on my list of things to read when I have the time. What kind of OPKs are you using? I have the cheapies but my last cycle was 49 days long so I go through them way too quickly. 
    @whiteswanblackswan I also love weekends for that same reason. Glad you got some R&R with YH, don't feel guilty for enjoying the down time! We were running around all weekend but had an unexpected afternoon off today so N&C it is. 
    @marebear15 FX for your CH! Sorry that cold is still lingering, hope you feel better soon!
    @nanner26 if that makes you an old lady, then I'm an old lady too. 
    @swiftlet sorry YH will be gone for so long. I'd lose my mind. 
    @asupernovablizzardstorm sorry your vacay is over already. Makes Mondays all that much harder to face too
    @kels0091 welcome! I'm sorry to hear about your BF. Sounds like they caught it early and hopefully the surgery was a success! I don't have any personal experience with testicular cancer but from everything I've read it sounds like it is definitely possible to conceive even with only one testicle.
    @swiftlet what's on your to-do list to keep you busy? We're here to try to take your mind off things too. Hope you can make the most of your reunion either way :wink: 

    I'm late to the party this weekend so I'll post my update in tomorrow's WTO. Wanted to drop in and say hi to everyone though!

    @kiki047 This is my first month using them, so I bought the Clear Blue Digital Ovulation Tests, that way I didn't have to guess. It had some guidelines about when to use according to cycle length but I jumped the gun a bit (cycle length -17=CD to start testing on). I have usually 32ish day cycles so I should have started on CD15, but I have no self control and started early, like CD 9 :| (mostly because I read somewhere to start testing at your first sign of fertile CM). It just gave me a smiley face (peak) on CD17,  2 days ago.

    If this cycle isn't successful, I might need to switch to the cheapies...it was $48 Canadian for 20 tests :s
