    R/R: Not much going on here until we leave Thursday for a week!

    CS/Q: My temp has gone down slowly the last 3 days, still well above cover but it’s really crushing any hope I thought I had. Should be too early for AF but at this point I’m starting to assume it’s inevitable.

    @dogmomma271 sorry for the temps dropping - I'm having a lot of pre-AF symptoms right now too so my hope is low as well.  FX this cycle works out for you though!

Oh, and DH is off this week, came home to a loaded dishwasher (clean) sink full of dishes and him on the sofa, dishes around the house. I wanted to scream! It is a good thing that I love that man.

    Testing: All BFN.  Yesterday was the last time I took one.

    CS/Q:  Big temp drop today, so AF should be here in a couple days.  I kind of wasn't expecting this big of a drop until tomorrow or the day after though.

    @dogmomma271 - It's still early, but sorry you don't feel optimistic.

    @MRDCle - It's early for you too! Don't give up hope yet :smile:

    @Sparty18 - Right there with you on only Tuesday. It should at least be Thursday, right?

    @nitnat007 - When do they ever learn to clean? lol My FIL actually does all the dishes in his house, but DH didn't gain that gene haha!

    @sparklingdiamond - Ooooh! How are you going to do your hair?

    R/R: Still not feeling the greatest. I wasn't able to eat much yesterday, just 2 biscuits at lunch and a couple of carrot sticks for dinner. I'm still SS even though I know it's too early for implantation so it's only progesterone that I'm reacting too or this flu.

    @sparty18 totally feel you on the only Tuesday thing.  One of my girlfriends messaged me today - "Four days will the weekend!" OOF. 
    @nitnat007 I HATE DISHES.  I would have been so annoyed.  Last night DH promised to put the leftovers away after dinner.  When I stopped for water before bed I saw that we have very different definitions of what tidying up after dinner means. 
    @sparklingdiamond sounds like you have a pretty nice week shaping up!
    @marebear15 I hope you're feeling better soon!

  • @dogmomma271 Or maybe it's just implantation and will go back up!  I haven't lost hope for you yet! :smile:

    @marebear15 ; I want to try to go strawberry blonde.  I usually do red, but I think DH is tired of that lol.

    @kangstadt I typically get a few cramps the week before my period starts :( Nausea though not so much.  Sorry about the migraine -they are so awful. 
    Lilypie Pregnancy tickers
  • @MRDCle Thanks - I don't normally get many symptoms of AF, but I was also on BC for 10 years and have had really irregular cycles since I stopped in Dec so I have no idea what's normal for me. Overanalyzing every twinge in my body (is that implantation, cramping from impending AF, or nothing at all?).
    @Sparty18 Yay for DPO buddies! I have no sense of what day of the week it is anymore (teacher in the summer...) but I go back to work in less than 3 weeks so I need to start getting my head in the game!
    @nitnat007 I didn't realize so many of us are 8DPO! That would drive me crazy too - I know I'm guilty of doing the same to my H once in a while, but usually on a day when we've both been at work and I just don't have the energy to clean up lol. I definitely try to make sure the kitchen is cleaned up before he comes home if I've been off all day!
    @sparklingdiamond Damn, hugs for you friend. I always wanted strawberry blonde hair but mine's pretty dark and I don't think I could pull it off. Enjoy your trip and your last day at work! Like @meri-mac said - treat yo self!
    @marebear15 Sorry you aren't feeling well. I totally get you on the SS - I made an omelette on like 4DPO and thought it smelled weird so threw it out, then thought OMG food aversions I must be KU! ...pretty sure the cheese was just expired. :lol:

  • Temping question: Has anyone noticed even a slight difference in temps when sleeping alone vs. when H/SO is home? My H has been working the last 2 nights so I've been sleeping by myself. Wondering if that could be at all related to my temps being slightly lower, or if I'm just grasping for straws for a reason lol.

    @sparklingdiamond Sorry about the BFN.  I hope you have a wonderful time in Portland with your H.
    @marebear15 Sorry to hear you're feeling sick.  I find it impossible not to ss.  It's like I can feel every tiny movement in my body.

    @nitnat007 dh is the worst when off work. Being off work doesn't mean house chores don't need to be done.

  • @dogmomma271 I definitely notice my temp is down when DH doesn't sleep at home - he's like a furnace. He was gone this weekend and I woke up at 5 am freezing and my temp definitely showed it. I added an extra blanket the next night and it was back up where it usually is post-O. 
    @MRDCle sorry about the BFN! I'm trying to hold out until AF is due, but I know the temptation to test is strong. 
    @sparty18 oh wow we are all DPO buddies! I hate that it's only Tuesday. This TWW is going to take forever. 
    @nitnat007 oh hey 8 dpo party! haha wow. I guess it's the thing to do this month! Sorry about the dish situation at your house. My H likes to hoard dirty dishes and empty water bottles in his home office and it drives me bonkers.
    @sparklingdiamond sorry about the BFN and the temp drop! I hope you have fun getting your hair done! 
    @marebear15 sorry you're still not feeling great. Hope you feel better soon!
    @meri-mac I hope your appointment goes well tomorrow!
    @kangstadt *TW*
    I've had every early pregnancy symptom under the sun during TWW and not been KU, and the month I got DD I reluctantly tested because I didn't believe I was actually pregnant. *shrug*
    @mermaidCA does your thermometer store the last temp when you turn it back on? I've found that just temping the first time I wake up and putting the thermometer back helps me go back to sleep much more easily than if I enter it in my phone at the time of the wake up, if that makes any sense. 
    @asupernovablizzardstorm our bed at home creaks too, and it's the worst.

    Omg @general_organa - my DH has a truck he drives for work and every couple weeks he brings in the plethora of tupperware, travel-mugs, and silverware he's been keeping in there and dumps it all in the dish bin at once and it makes me SO unhappy.

    @mermaidca I also temp and then enter later.  I don't even open my eyes to temp...just reach over, insert, beep, put back.

  • @marebear15 I have come to the conclusion that they will never learn to clean.They would simply just live in the filth! Girl, I really hope you feel better soon and are able to eat something. 
    @MRDCle Normally MH would cook and I would do dishes, but since he was home ALL day, I figured he had more than enough time to tackle it. Especially since I literally do all the other cleaning around the house myself. MH does the same thing with putting away the food too. Like why?? 
    @meri-mac A couple of days? That would not work for me. I struggle with a couple hours. So much luck for your appointment tomorrow. Please update us on how it goes. 
    @kangstadt Hope you can get rid of that migraine. Shame man. 
    @dogmomma271 So many of us. Gotta mean its good luck for someone right?!
    @asupernovablizzardstorm I think its worse when he is off too. It is like the mess just isnt even there to him. Yay for vacation sex!! whoop whoop!
    @general_organa @MRDCle Oh, yours does that too?? Haha I have left dishes in his office before just to see how long they will sit there. Not to mention his car. Coffee cups and McD bags everywhere. So gross!

    @MRDCle i took a test at 8DPO too and it came up negative :neutral:, however, suppose to get AF today and has yet to show, trying not to get too excited as I have been a few days late before.
    @marebear15 I hope you feel better soon!
    @kangstadt read spoiler

    I started feeling nauseous several days before AF with both of my previous pregnancies. However, I didnt take PT til after I missed AF. My first pregnancy I remember cramping because I remember thinking AF was coming, not sure about my second one. FX for you!
