    Month/Cycle: 14/15

    CD/DPO: 19/3

    Timing: -3, -2, 0/IUI, +1

    Typical LP length: 11-13ish, not sure what it'll be like with the prometrium and clomid

    Testing: Sept 7/10dpo would be the earliest I'll test at home. Beta on Sept 13 if AF doesn't show.

    R/R: It's Friday and it's a long weekend! Not to mention I get to meet the only one of DH's siblings I've still never met. (We had a very small wedding with just our parents & he lives in CA).

    CS/Q: No questions, but chart below for those who like to stalk.

    @jhems776 I may be in the same boat. I’m on dpo 16 and my lp is usually 15 days...

    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: 29/16

    Timing: -3, -1

    Typical LP length: 15 days

    Testing: Well, AF is mia for day 2. If she’s not here tomorrow, I’ll test tomorrow. I’m starting to feel some mild cramps but nothing like I normally do so I’m feeling really confused yet hopeful yet doubtful.

    R/R: Rant...I’m really struggling with my mental health. My depression and anxiety have been all over the place making life just flat out hard. That may have something to do with the weird lp, af situation. I just want to feel like myself again.

    CS/Q: Nope!

    @mrskoz428 FX for testing tomorrow.
  • Options
    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO:  20/9 or 6?

    Timing: pretty good -5,-3,-1,0,+1

    Typical LP length:  11-14 days

    Testing: holding off until at least next Friday.  Getting that urge to POAS but holding off.  My DH has to travel for work all next week and I’d like to test together this time.  

    R/R: working the entire LD weekend and wondering how busy the ER is going to be.  Enjoying my day off today 

    CS/Q: haven’t gone this route

    I'm just back from a crazy busy work conference but I did some stalking yesterday to try to catch up.

    @jhems776 sorry AF showed!

    @mrskoz428 sorry you're feeling so off. FX for testing tomorrow and that it will bring some good news (of course), or at least some sanity. Is there a reason you're waiting until 17DPO? Sorry if you've explained this already.

    Month/Cycle: 2/1

    CD/DPO: 43/6
    This cycle was my first off of the progesterone only pill and started after my first postpartum period - hence the very long follicular phase.

    Timing: -2, -1, +1 (if FF placed O correctly)

    Typical LP length: not sure but cycles have always been 30-32 days so I assume on the longer side.

    Testing: going to try 16 DPO or WFAF but I doubt I'll make it that long.

    R/R: It's always super quiet after our work conference so I get the day off today

    CS/Q: curious when you all think O day is. I've charted previously with a super rocky chart (hadn't switched to vaginal temping until this cycle) so never got even dotted crosshairs. Hence, I also don't know how long my LP is. If O is earlier, my timing is a lot worse so I really like where they placed it.

    @thegirlwhowaited_ I hope the time between now and when you can test goes by fast!  
    @jhems776 I'm so sorry about CD1.  Treat yourself to something today (last CD1 I bought myself some good chocolate and some new nail polish in a fun color to lift my spirits a little.)
    @mrskoz428 I am sorry your are struggling.  Depression and anxiety can really pull us into dark places sometimes.  I hope you feel better soon. <3 
    @kvh22 and @denma2015 I hope you both enjoy your day off today!

    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: 22/6

    Timing: Not great due to sick DH and I ovulated earlier than Fertility Friend was predicting.  

    Typical LP length: Probably around 14 days

    Testing: Not unless my period is late.  

    R/R: Rave: I'm excited for a get together at my friend's house this evening, even though I am sad that this weekend signals the official end to summer vacation.  Rant: I went to three different stores looking for red raspberry leaf tea and none of them had it in stock.  What's up with that?

    CS/Q: Nope

    Thank you everyone!  My fabfitfun box should be here today, so that will be nice. I was going to cook for H's birthday but I think I'll push to eat out instead. 
    @mrskoz428  I hope you are not in my boat!  FX for you!  I feel you with anxiety (diagnosed too), TTC really ramps it up, hugs.

    @kvh22 I guess I’m just holding off because I tested the day before AF was supposed to come last cycle, got a BFN and AF showed up the next day. I guess I’m just hoping the longer I hold out, the more likely it is to be true? I’ve been checking my cervical position and it’s hard and closed still. 

    @jhems776  @emeraldduchess And thank you for the love. Depression has been my demon for 7 years now and stupid me stopped taking my meds because I felt great!

    @foodislove It is! I got the 'free gift' mini box before and lived it. This is my first real box and went kind of nuts with the add in ons but the prices were amazing. Also, once is all you need, -1 is great.

    jhems776 Nice, I've been thinking about getting it - what item are you most excited about?

    As for my timing, I'm disappointed because we wanted to try again on O but I forgot I get major ovulation cramps when not on BC and I was out of commission for like 12 hours Wednesday. Also, DH is out of country next month so if not now, having to wait til end of October... And he may be out of country again then too.

    @emeraldduchess Thanks. I really just need next week to go by fast. Which it should since it's only a 4-day work week. I've had to test to make sure I'm not still getting positives from the Ovidrel injection. But once I get a neg I'll wait till at least 10dpo.
