Re: TWW Weekend 10/27 - 10/28

  • Loading the player...
  • Month/Cycle: 21/3 after bench

    CD/DPO: 25/10

    Timing: good

    Typical LP length: 15 days

    Testing: trying to decide.  Not in the mood for a bfn.  

    R/R:  I am not ashamed to say I have been making cookies and listening to Christmas music this morning.  Soon I get to go to target and buy things, which I always love.  So, pretty good day, just still tired and stressed from this long week.  Hoping it doesn’t cause a flair.

    CS/Q:  not impressive.  But I have found the way a chart looks means jack sh*t

    @elle-0409 I hope you feeel better.  And no, it isn’t concerning.  My temps normally spike up and down and I often go under my cover line.  The fact your sick may be the issue too.  If you are stuffy there’s a good chance you have lower temps because your mouth was open.

    @nolemomma14 your food sounds yummy, have fun with your friends!

  • I think I go here now!

    @elle-0409 sorry I don’t have any insight into your chart. I’m still quite new at it. Also hopefully your DH doesn’t get sick. They make it seem so much worse!

    CD/DPO: 16/2

    Timing: -2, -1

    Typical LP length: my guess is 10-11 

    Testing: maybe next Monday 

    R/R: just happy it’s the weekend!

    CS/Q: chart in spoiler

    Nothing to to see yet really. This is my first month temping so it’s really cool to see the shift.

  • @nolemomma14 I think it's a good idea to wait a few more days until you test. Also, it sounds like you are going to have a fun day!
    @holly321 I hope that your mom is doing well. And I am super jelly of your cookies and Christmas music! That is my ultimate happy place. (And thank you for the insight about my chart. I think I'm nervous because I have a short lp and this is my first month temping.)
    @montee1917 Welcome! This is my first month temping, too and I really like it.
    @chichiphin Good luck at your event today! I hope you can stay dry.

  • Finally made it over here!

    Month/Cycle: 16/15

    CD/DPO: 25/0

    Timing: -2, -3, -4

    Typical LP length: 13

    Testing: gotta give it some time!

    R/R: going over to a friend's house this afternoon to hang out in our onesies! Super excited!

    CS/Q: I weirdly woke up at 4:20 this morning and temp'ed at 97.35. Went back to bed because wtf it's a Saturday, then when I woke up again a few hours later my temp had jumped 0.7 degrees to 98.02 so I may have actually pinpointed the window that I O'ed so hence my day 0 above. Hopefully my future temps don't drop as this is turning into being one of my unusually long cycles.

  • @nolemomma14 yum! Your food sounds amazing! I’d try to hold off on testing for another couple days! 

    @holly321 yum yum! Are they being stored until Christmas? I’d be way to tempted. My Christmas baking normally started dec 20..or I’d be sneaking cookies from the freezer daily.

    @chichiphin sounds interesting! I’m originally from the east coast of Canada. I weirdly miss the weather.

    @inthewoods23 cozy onsie day! Have fun. It would be interesting to plug your 4:20 temp into a bbt converter to see if it gets closer to your later morning temps...but that might just add stress so maybe not!
  • @emeraldduchess sounds like you Od yesterday! The winds are pretty gross here, but worse in coastal NJ, so if you’re on the coast they may be worse than what we are getting here in Philly

  • @elle-0409 Oh goodness, that is the worst when you are looking for comfort and someone just cuts to talking about themselves. It's obvious that they are trying to sympathize but in the process they totally miss the mark on acknowledging how YOU are feeling at all. Speaking of, I am sorry you are not feeling well, I hope you get some rest the weekend and feel better :) Also, 4dpo dip is totally normal, it's when estrogen starts to decline a little and progesterone picks up the slack. 
    @nolemomma14 I am so jealous of all your food! I hope you enjoy every last bite! 
    @holly321 I love that you are in full Christmas mode today, when do you usually get your tree set up? 
    @montee1917 Your chart looks good!
    @chichiphin That's great your temp is staying up! 
    @inthewoods23 I think that 2+ hours is more than enough to stabilize your temps again, the only question I'd consider is if you normally temp earlier, since BBT continues to rise in the morning. But given your +OPK you're probably on point :) 
    @emeraldduchess Everything sounds like you O'd, cycle buddy! Are you all expecting snow yet with this storm or is it still chilled autumn rain? 

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD/DPO: 17/1

    Timing: -3, -2, -1

    Typical LP length: 9-12

    Testing: Maybe on the 5th? 

    R/R: I have another UTI, just like every other FW, but what's new. I received my Oura Ring yesterday and it conveniently only really fits my wedding ring finger so I need to exchange it for a size up. I used it last night though and it was pretty cool on tracking sleep, heart rate, etc. Temp chart will kick in tomorrow once I have more than 1 number in there. Excited to use it for a daily activity tracker too. 

    CS/Q: I'll post tomorrow since my temp needs to rise more, but it's getting up there.

  • @chichiphin I am about a 20 minute drive from the beach, so not directly on the coast.  We've had a few downpours and strong wind gusts, but so far, nothing scary.

    @mamanbebe I was hoping I would see you here today! :) I'm feeling more confident that O was yesterday, but I still checked with an OPK a while ago.  The lines are getting lighter, so I guess that's a good indication.  The last three cycles I didn't use OPKs after I got 2 days of positives, so I'm not sure what they should be looking like at this point.  Luckily there's no snow with this storm.  I don't think I could handle snow this early, I hate shoveling and driving in it.

  • @chichiphin I didn’t know that was a show until recently, and I will probably be enjoying it this evening!

    @monte1917 these were for now.  I kept trying to convince myself to just eat the healthy cookies I had in the freezer.  I usually start baking a batch weekly in October.  I share them and don’t eat them all, btw.

    @emeraldduchess it definitely sounds like you O’ed!  and I just made no bake cookies today, so nothing exciting.  my favorite is chocolate chocolate chip with mint, but I have no self control with those.

    @mamanbebe we always put the tree up the weekend after thanksgiving . Dh thinks that’s too early, but I always win.  Sorry about the UTI, they are the worst!

    @mamanbebe sorry about the UTI. I’m also prone to them, I take cranberry supplements to try to prevent them. I don’t know if it actually works but I haven’t had one since I went back on the pills and I had two in the previous 5months when I stopped. 

    @holly321 mmmmm cookies. I miss having an oven. I bake a lot normally and this is the season when I’d normally be baking up a storm so it’s killing me not to be able to just whip something up. Even when I can’t eat it (being off sugar/gluten). 

    @elle-0409 sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. Your comment made me lol tho, that’s totally what goes through my head sometimes too.

  • @chichiphin hooray for your temps staying up!  FX for good results on your H's SA. 

    Month/Cycle: 4/4

    CD/DPO: 22/2

    Timing: -5, -4, -2, -1

    Typical LP length: 11-14 days

    Testing: I'll see how long I can wait (definitely not before 11 DPO).  

    R/R: Nope.  

    CS/Q: My BBT was elevated for the second day in a row, so I'm pretty sure Friday was O day. Now I am wondering what took me so long to start temping.  I am not sure if I will continue once O is confirmed since that could add another layer of anxiety that I really don't think I need right now.

  • @chichiphin what a good wife!  FX for good results!

    @emeraldduchess yay for high temp again.  It is probably less stressful to not temp in TWW.  I do it because I not only like to drive myself nuts, but mostly because otherwise o get out of the habit and forget to temp when I need to.



    Month/Cycle: 21/3

    CD/DPO: 26/11

    Timing:  decent

    Typical LP length: 15 days

    Testing:  I tested and obviously bfn or I would not be here, but my IC are apparently crap and most women said in the event it was positive, it didn’t happen until after AF is due.  I resisted the urge to buy FRER, because my temp is never this high.... 

    R/R:  we are having a really crappy week. FIL is in the hospital now.  Not much details yet.

    @holly321 oh no I’m so sorry about your FIL! I hope everything is okay. I’m also sorry about the BFN but if it isn’t a FRER, I doubt you’d see anything this early right?

    R/R: I had so much fun at my sister’s Halloween party yesterday! Everyone loved my Mrs. Claus character, and it’s making me look forward to wearing it with H in December when he wears his Santa suit. He’s done work and family parties. I can understand why he enjoys dressing up so much now 👍

    CS/Q: I’m pleasantly surprised that I’m 7dpo and not overly anxious this month. It’s a good feeling, and I’m glad I decided to forgo temping in the TWW. I might check this week once to make sure it’s still up and normal, but in past months, my temps stay up until AF anyway, so it doesn’t tell me much anyway.

    @montee1917 I’m glad you find temping helpful! Also, you might want to put 7/7 for your month since you’ve been trying since April?

    @chichiphin GL with your SA and appointment! LOL to the motivation 😂

    @inthewoods23 Yay for onsie costumes! 

    @emeraldduchess Yay for confirming O!

    @mamanbebe Sorry to hear about the UTI. That’s rough.

  • @holly321 I’m sorry you’re having such a rough week.

    @cpiper39 I have been using 6/7 until I moved over to TWW. I’ve only been on TB and tracking for this cycle so I felt like a fraud. I’ll most put it back.

    @chichiphin how long will you need to wait for results? Good luck!

    @emeraldduchess I might stop temping in a few days if it’s messing with my sleep or causing anxiety and pick up again once AF shows up

    @montee1917 Welcome! Chart looks great hope you are enjoying temping

    @inthewoods Welcome! I understand your frustration with waking up early, my temps are always lower than I expect if I measure before my normal time. Looking forward to what your chart looks like next week!

    @emeraldduchess Hope your baking went well and you get CHs soon!

    @mamabebe This is my  first time hearing about the Oura Ring, hope it works well for you! Looking forward to stalking your chart!

    @chichiphin I use to live on Long Island so I familiar with the nor'easter pain. Hopefully it pass through quickly! Hope the SA results are great!

    @holly321 ; I am so sorry about the bfn and you FIL! Maybe some more Christmas music will help lift your spirits.

    @cpiper39 So glad the costume went over well! Glad you are feeling more at ease right now!

    @montee1917 So jealous of your meal planning! I was really good about it earlier this year but my schedule got crazy and I gave it up. I miss the feeling of being organized and healthy! Hope it’s the start of a stress free week!

    R/R: Had a great time with DH yesterday at a local cider mill, weather was perfect. Also we were able to get a lot of yard work done. I am  Feeling stressed already about work events I have to go to Mon/Tues on top of end of month deadlines.

    CS/Q: Chart in spoiler. Just wondering if anyone else gets night sweats. I notice them during my hormone shifts after O and before AF.

  • @queenie_b I used to get night sweats or at least slept really hot during my luteal phase. I think it's a sign of progesterone kicking in. I hope your next couple of days turn out to be easier than you're anticipating, starting your week out with worry is the pits, esp after such a nice weekend!
