  • @chichiphin good luck with all your tests, FX for good results.  Sorry you feel crappy!  I tried to buy a FRER last night, but the store was out.  My temps low this morning, so I guess it is for the best.

  • @chichiphin FX on the tests today! That was quick on the SA too - relieves some of the waiting.  You’re still above CL, so don’t get too down on yourself today.

    @holly321 It’s always nice for a break from the boss sometimes, even if you get along well. Sorry about the BFN and temping anxiety. Especially since your temps haven’t been stable, I wouldn’t call yourself out yet.

  • @cpiper39 It feels like this Monday is especially Monday-ish. Hopefully, the weekend gets here soon!
    @holly321 Enjoy the solitude! Sometimes it's just nice to be left alone. And your chart still looks good!
    @chichiphin It's great that you'll get the results back so quickly! FX that it all goes well. And I'm sorry that you're not feeling well. You are still above the cover line so don't count yourself out yet!
    @yelyah4826 Good for you! I wish that I had some of your motivation right now.

    Testing: Not today, Satan.

    R/R: Rant: Dear Mother of God, I am still sick. If this doesn't go away in the next day or two I'm going to take another trip back to the doctor. Rave: My husband and I had our anniversary dinner last night at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and I ate too much and almost died. After dinner, we went to Barnes & Noble and I bought some books and a French Vogue with a feature on the 90's-era supermodels. Books make me so happy! 

    CS/Q: My chart looks so sad during my LP. It's just lazily falling down.

    Testing: I might next week Thursday... But we'll see

    R/R: long rant - (TW child mentioned) the onesie party ended up just me being in a onesie at my friend's house. Apparently earlier in the day my friend had shown her DD a picture of the Boogeyman from a movie and so when it was time for bed she was crying and scared about going to bed so they had to comfort her to get her to sleep. Their onesies were either in her room or her attached bathroom so they didn't want to try getting them. Which was fine anyway. Most of the night was telling friend and her fiance about my SIL's BF who does not have a lot of good qualities (if you want my honest opinion he has none...). We have a lot of weird experiences with the BF. DH and I are actually probably leaning towards rejecting being in the wedding party if their relationship gets to that point because we do not like who he is as a person, even if he does make SIL happy (or so she says).

    CS/Q: my app comfirmed an O date of Saturday after I entered this morning's temps! I never did enter that 4AM temp of 97.35 to see what it would say. I'm kind of curious!

    @holly321 Sorry to hear your tests aren't giving you confidence FX there will be no need to buy more for next month!

    @chichiphin Yay for quick turnaround on the tests! Hope the results are good!

  • @cpiper39 I feel you on the Monday!

    @holly321 I finally have a great boss, but I also get a bit excited when she’s away for the day or on holidays. Probably doesn’t help that I’m super introverted. Also your chart still looks good!

    @chichiphin good luck with all your upcoming tests and results!

    @yelyah4826 nice work! I have my meals planned for the week, but I’m lacking on workouts. It’s a hard balance! 

    @elle-0409 your dinner sounds delicious! Also, the bookstore is my favourite. I’m not much of a shopper, but I can browse for hours and spend all my monies at a bookstore.

    @Mother0fDragons yes for ovulation!

    @inthewoods23 yay for ovulation! Sorry your onsie gathering was a bust! At least you were comfortable

    @queenie_b your chart looks really good! Glad your motivation and energy is still high. Maybe a good sign!

    Timing: -1, +1

    Typical LP length: 14

    Testing: Still a week away

    R/R: Absolutely hellish month! So being as I can't see a fertility doctor until I get new insurance in January, I've been taking all kinds of supplements that are supposed to help, including a "conception" multivitamin with megadoses of all the vitamin B's. Last two weeks, I've been feeling horrific, dizzy and light-headed, shaky, and with insane break-outs (which I didn't initially connect with the rest). It got so bad, I went to urgent care. Turns out I have toxic levels of the vitamin B's. So that's been fun... watch out for what's in your supplements, they're not always healthy! This also resulted in my hormone levels all being out of whack so I have no idea if this month is a total wash. Apologies for the long rant, I am just so sick (literally and figuratively) of this nonsense. Signing up for the best insurance I can afford as soon as the marketplace opens so I can go see a professional.
  • @cpiper39 Hooray for temp staying up! Any plans for next weekend yet? 
    @holly321 I'm sorry about the bfn, I hope your week gets a little better with your solitude at work. 
    @chichiphin Good luck with all the testing today. Do you normally have those symptoms before AF? 
    @elle-0409 Sorry you're still not feeling well but happy anniversary! Does your chart usually do the slow decline like that? 
    @MotherofDragons @inthewoods23 Congrats on O!
    @queenie_b Your chart looks good! FX!
    @rikiteacup Yay for late O! Glad you had better timing than you expected this cycle  :) 
    @montee1917 Having leftovers ready to go for lunch is one of the best feelings sometimes. Glad you and your H will get to have more time together going forward :) 
    @tinybluesprite Sorry about your toxicity, you definitely have to be careful with vitamins and supplements. Does your current insurance allow visits to a naturopath? I only ask because sometimes you can see a naturopath who specializes in fertility and have it covered as a specialist office visit -- and they do full blood panels to check hormones, thyroid, etc, and can advise you on how to move forward with supplements. This is what I'm doing at the moment. 

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD/DPO: 19/3

    Timing: -3, -2, -1

    Typical LP length: 9-12

    Testing: WFAF or next week, depending on chart temps

    R/R: Rant/ It is so rainy outside and our yard is an absolute disaster. We did not clean it up before the autumn rain started, so we need to hire someone to do it for us. Rave/ I feel so much less stress the past few days after loosening up my schedule a bit! Even my resting heart rate is starting to even out. Excited at the prospect of getting to the gym this week AND my infrared sauna visit! 

    CS/Q: I've been using fertility tinctures since CD14 that have vitex in them, in addition to other herbs. I'm interested to see how this affects my temperatures. 

    It's interesting using a few different BBT and charting sources. Kindara only goes to the 10th, so my temps look non-progressive. Clue goes to the 100th, and you can see a definite rise, continuing. BUT my Oura Ring is detecting a more sensitive change in my BBT and I can see the curve is more dramatic than my thermometer and Clue are providing so far. Spoiler for Kindara/Clue differences.

  • @queenie_b Enjoy that warm weather!! I wish I had your energy. :) (And good memory re: the toiletry bag! He loved it.)
    @rikiteacup I'm glad that you had good timing and that your DH is noticing a difference with the FertilAid pills.
    @montee1917 It's wonderful that your DH will be able to have his weekends free again.
    @tinybluesprite I'm so sorry to hear about your experience. Hopefully, you feel better soon and January brings you lots of positive changes.
    @mamanbebe This is my first time temping, so I'm not sure if it normally does a slow decline. I think my body wants to start AF (she should be here either Wednesday or Thursday), but the progesterone supplements I'm on are doing their best to prevent that. So, I guess we'll see what happens. I'm happy that you are feeling less stressed! Have you gone to an infrared sauna before? I've read up on it a little bit.

    @chichiphin Wow, pretty amazing turnaround of results. Glad that worked so quickly for you guys. 

    @yelyah4826 Good job staying on plan! 

    @elle-0409 Sorry for your lingering sickness. Those are the worst.

    @inthewoods23 oh, that’s lame. I’m sorry it turned out to be like that. 

    @montee1917 Oh, that’ll be so nice to get all your weekends back with your H. I used to work weekends (quit about a month ago) and it was so amazing having that time back together. Enjoy it! 

    @tinybluesprite That’s pretty terrifying. I’m glad you figured it out. I hope you’re able to get something decent through the marketplace. 


    Side note, I strongly dislike mobile bumping. I’m dizzy from scrolling up and down. Ugh.

    @mamanbebe I glad to hear you are feeling less stressed! Hope your weekend gym and sauna plans work out - sounds wonderful!
