    R/R: My students are making me crazy... very whiny lately. They’re high school seniors. 🙄 But it’s almost the weekend and the holidays are around the corner!!

    CS/Q: Guess I’m not ovulating earlier than last cycle. OPKs are still just barely not positive. The one I had 2 days ago was the darkest I’ve seen so far this month, but my temps have been dropping since so no O yet. FX I O by CD20 at least, HIO will get old soon...

    @montee1917 yay for +opk!
    @heml welcome back! I hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend with your dad in town!
    @dogmomma096 is it possible you had your positive overnight when you had your darkest? 
    @b_1029 I’m sorry about your DH car, I hope it’s an easy fix. Also, so sorry about AF :(

    R/R: Rave/ looks like I’m ovulating! Despite my having a bad cold, still hio for a win. I hope that I can get my temps up this cycle. Rant/ I have my last Pilates session for a while this morning and I’m nervous about being pressured to stay. I’ve had private sessions weekly for almost 2 years, so it’s kind of a big deal but I need to clear my plate for a bit. 

    CS/Q: nothing to see yet

    Edit: I have no idea what day it is and put the wrong CD

    @dogmomma096 Booo for whiny students! Hopefully you can turn an OPK here soon! 

    @heml Welcome back! Oh - enjoy all of the football with your dad and BBQ! 

    @montee1917 Days like that are the best!!! And yay on the blazing OPK!

    @mamanbebe Look at you go! Glad you were able to ovulate and HIO during your window :). Sorry you have to end your Pilates session! Sometimes it's nice to just take a break!

    R/R: I was supposed to go camping this weekend but looks like we are getting rained out! So I cancelled my vacation days which kind of stings but I know I need to get work done! And now I don't have to drop my pupper off at my mom's house so that's good. I get so sad being away from that fuzzy little monster lol.

    R/R: Today is one day closer to the weekend where I can sleep in (an hour)! Also, I did not forget my tea this morning (almost left it in the garage). Today will be a good day!

    CS/Q: Not today, man.

    @b_1029 Noooooooooooooooo! I am so so sorry, I was rooting so hard for you! Hugs, friend! Also, cars suck really hard. We just got a new one because our truck died(ish) so I’m hoping that doesn’t happen for you! 

    @dogmomma096 Ah, are HS seniors the worst? I was briefly contemplating getting my teaching credential to teach science/math...but maybe not. Also, c’mon ovaries! You can do it!!

    @heml Geeze man, give Halloween and Turkey Day their chance in the sun! (Jk - I love Christmas, too!) I’m probably going to set up our faux Christmas tree the first weekend in November! 😆

    @mamanbebe I hope by clearing one thing off your plate you’re able to relax a little bit more. Go and get it on, girl!! 😉

    @montee1917 Woohoo to a +OPK!! Have a great time celebrating that achievement. 😉

    from yesterday:

    @emeraldduchess Ahh, Friends. Such a classic. I starting watching a few shows again and it just makes me so happy. That really was the best show! Great purchases at TJ maxx, too!

  • @b_1029 sorry to hear about your car troubles! Really puts a damper on your daily routine. Hope it gets fixed soon!

    @dogmomma096 HS seniors can't be as crazy as the elementary school kids my sister teaches! She has some wild stories of their behavior!

    @heml welcome back! Mental health is so important! These boards actually really help me feel good because IRL everyone around me is getting pregnant so it's nice to talk with those that are still working on getting that BFP 

    @montee1917 I like your choice in words! Got my +opk when I got home last night and this morning most of the control line on the stick was gone so it was, as you said, a blazing positive  :D

    R/R: I'm excited tomorrow because I'm going to a friend's house to celebrate her engagement. It's gonna be a onesie party. DH and I both have hedgehog onesies, she has a panda one, and her fiance has a penguin one!

    CS/Q: none, O is predicted to be tomorrow now that I have + OPKs yesterday evening and this morning. Hopefully I move over to the TWW thread soon!

Also, totally agreed - I am pretty sure our tent isn't even going to stand a chance in the rain since we weren't able to waterproof spray it after our last trip!

    @mamanbebe stay strong girl! That’s a big commitment in my mind. I’m sure the instructor will understand. Will you do any type of exercise instead or stick with Pilates at your own pace? Yes for ovulating!!

    @brookert615 I hate leaving my pup for any period of time so I get it. I’m pretty sure he’s my bestfriend. He gets me 😀

    @lillywonderland it’s amazing what 1 extra hour of sleep can do! Although I’ve turned into a morning person over the past year..kinda loving it.

    @dogmomma096 hopefully you get a +OPK soon! Totally understand about HIO getting exhausting while waiting for it. 
    @heml welcome back and I’m glad you’re feeling better!
    @montee1917 yay for +OPK! And we’re hoping it’ll be less than $500 or so 🤞🏼
    @chichiphin thank you ❤️
    @mamanbebe good job HIO even while sick. The things we do....
    @brookert615 heyyyy CD twin! You may want to stop doing rain dances to get KU so your camping trip is back on 🤣 sorry to hear that though. Totally understand about being away from fur babies - what kind of dog do you have? 
    @lillywonderland thanks friend ❤️ Glad you’re having a great day! We just got a new car last year so are hoping we don’t have to replace his too. Looking like it’s the alternator so hopefully it won’t be too expensive. We’re trying to extend the life of his 98 4Runner as long as we can!
    @inthewoods23 ummmm that engagement party sound amazing (and comfortable)! Where does one find a hedgehog onesie?! And FX for O soon!

    @b_1029 Holy Moley, a ‘98?  Dang that is great! I looooooove 4Runners! DH has been eyeing the new ones, and I *think* he has one picked out (hopefully we’ll last another year with my old tiny car though). We initially wanted the TRD Pro, but it’s hard to justify paying ABOVE sticker for it (and apparently that’s what you have to do for those ones...). Personally, I think we’ll end up going for a 4WD SR5 premium and having DH pick out some kickass wheels.

    @inthewoods23 omg, I’m dying at the onesies! I’m trying (very unsuccessfully of course) to get DH to be on board for matching Christmas PJs and originally I wanted the onesies. He’s at a hard no for that. Why you no fun, man?!

  • @heml I teach dual enrollment math classes, so the really advanced kids. Overall they’re well behaved, but I have a few boys lately that have been whining about every little thing we’re doing that’s even remotely challenging. Like why the heck are you taking this class then if you don’t want to do anything challenging? I want to punch them. I won’t. 
    @mamanbebe I thought that might happen, but my temps have been dropping the last 2 days instead of rising. I have PCOS so not abnormal to get a dark OPK and not O, plus I’ve never O’d before CD17 so not shocked. Was just hopeful!
    @lillywonderland Overall they’re great! I just have a handful of boys that are special snowflakes and whine that literally everything is too hard or unfair. The rest of the kids are annoyed with them but for the life of me I can’t get them to shut up!
    @inthewoods23 Definitely not as crazy, but they can be very annoying at times! It’s really just a few right now, but they really ruin the whole class with their nonsense.

    @lillywonderland Hooray for a good start to your day and it almost being the weekend!
    @inthewoods23 Yes for positive OPKs! Go get it! 
    @montee1917 Thanks for the encouragement! I am thinking as a replacement I will try to do some mat pilates or yoga at home + do weekly sessions at the new infrared sauna near my house, since that is supposed to help with stress :) 
    @b_1029 Haha seriously, DH keeps side-eyeing me every time I cough. I figure we're all gonna be sick anyway, might as well have some enjoyment & productivity before we crash!

  • @b_1029 we got ours on Amazon!

    And really it's not a party, it's just the 4 of us hanging out. Well, and her 6 year old daughter who has a unicorn onesie.

    This onesie I also plan on using as my costume at work. Last year I went as a competitive swimmer since I can still squeeze myself into my competition suit. I had a shirt and my warm up suit on over it and carried around my swim cap and goggles, but I vowed to not wear something uncomfortable for a costume at work again and this onesie totally fits the bill.

  • Hi everyone! I posted in the 10/9 introduction thread and messed that up since I still had the general "Knottie" username (ha). Now that my lurking stage is done since we're actively TTGP, I'm looking forward to participating more and getting to know everyone.

    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD: 6

    WAYDTGKU: BD'ing often (I know the egg only drops once, but I'm trying to BD like normal to not freak out DH or make it unfun)

    R/R: As of last month, I've been focusing on eating healthy and exercising. It helps me focus on something other than babies for a little while, plus it's totally needed since I gained over 20 pounds these last 2 years (UGH). Mentally, I think of it as shedding for a future pregnancy and it makes the waiting periods between ovulation and testing better.

    CS/Q: None yet.

    @dogmomma096 FX your OPK turns positive soon!!
    @b_1029 I hope it's not an expensive fix! If you're handy, you guys could even fix it yourselves. I've done it for years,it is surprisingly easy (thanks to YT videos) and cheap! But these days are over for me, I am buying a brand new car this weekend. No more fixing something every month.
    @heml welcome back! I think we've all been through this at some point. TTC is such a mindfuck. I hope you have a good visit with your dad.

    @mamanbebe I'm so pleased with my temps, lol. Like bordering on obsessive. Some people get temping anxiety, personally it excites me. And yes, definitely see if they offer the ganbanyoku in your city. It's the weirdest concept, you literally go lie - fully clothed - on hot, flat rocks but I find it more comfortable than infrared saunas because it's less slippery (the one I used to go to was just like a regular sauna but encased in plexiglass so you kinda perch butt naked on a towel and... yeah, so sweaty). I even convinced my SO to come with me last year. He liked it so much we went twice in a week, lol. The one near me used to do hot yoga classes in there too but they closed down. I'm so sad.
