  • @elle-0409 Argh, Sorry about the temp drop... are you still above you CL? It’s not over until it’s over. It looks like your LP is getting longer though, that’s great!

  • @cpiper39 It was miles below the cover line this morning. (I even did back-to-back testing to make sure, and it was about the same.) But yes, I am thrilled that my LP is longer! And GL to you! I’ll be stalking everyone (in a non-creepy way) about to test soon. 😂😂

  • tags for today and from yesterday: 

    @mamanbebe @inthewoods23 sorry I don't want to resurrect the Oct CS/Q thread. Inthewoods - we have only been TTC for 6 mo. We actually got testing for my LP & AF's, and the OB/Gyn threw in a SA just in case. So now I'm cleared with no known issues and it is him. So I'm not sure how that all plays out for getting an RE and if the 6 mo rule still applies? Or if this is all NOT a big deal. The internet is conflicting. Maman - MH is pretty healthy and takes sups, but I'm going to look at ALL of them tonight lol 

    @cpiper39 I'm glad you've been busy and it has kept your mind off of SS! 
    @elle-0409 oh no sorry about the temp drop below the CL, but I'm glad the LP is getting longer 
    @nolemomma14 I'm excited for the holiday season too :)

  • I’ll be back with tags!

    Month/Cycle: 7/7

    CD/DPO: 21/7

    Timing: -2,-1

    Typical LP length:maybe 10-11ish

    Testing: nope

    R/R: we barely had any trick or treaters come by last night, so looks like I’ll be bringing a ton of candy to the office today!

    My temp had a big dip this morning. I know my mouth breathing was a contributor so I’m trying not to think about it. Also had a bit of spotting yesterday and this morning when I wipe. Logical me knows this is from my pap, but come on! Ah well..work should be busy to keep my mind focus

    CS/Q: just my chart in spoiler



    lillywonderlandfoodisloveemeraldduchess
  • @cpiper39 @montee1917 we for once had good weather for our trick or treating and we got a record low number of kids! Couldn't believe it. Previous years I've had more kids when it's low 40s and drizzle rain. Weird.

    @chichiphin I wonder if I can inquire with our RE about DH's SA. With his 1% morph I'm wondering what the primary issue is with his shape. All the docs we've spoken with have only given us general information of what they look for, but didn't provide us any info if there's a particular defect to them.  Probably doesn't matter in the end, but I'm curious about what they would say.

    Month/Cycle: 16/15

    CD/DPO: 30/5

    Timing: -4, -3, -2, 0

    Typical LP length: 13

    Testing: maybe Friday or Saturday if AF doesn't show up

    R/R: we had a record low of only 9 kids for trick or treating yesterday. I give out Yoohoo. More for DH and I then! Also, found out that I won't be going on that work trip next week so no issues with getting blood work done for the RE if AF does show. Can't remember what threads I've mentioned that in, but I'm glad we'll be off to a smooth start with the RE.

    CS/Q: I'm wondering if I should replace the battery in my BBT thermometer. Lately it feels like it takes forever to beep with my temp. 1 minute is normal, but I think we're getting towards it taking 2 minutes to finish. 2 minutes might still be in the normal time limit for it though, I don't remember.

  • @rikiteacup I bet you'll have to come back for labs. I did mine 7DPO, and some should have been CD3. 
    @inthewoods23 I'm glad you're off to a smooth start with the RE. I do think it is worth mentioning the SA and asking for a more detailed interpretation. My doc had a ton of info on the SA paperwork to share, not just the percentage. I actually asked for the full report because she said even more that I can't remember. 
    @montee1917 hoping the dip & spotting is just the Pap!

  • @cpiper39 aw we had a crappy turn out too! It probably didn’t help that I turned the lights off at 8pm! 

    @elle-0409 sorry for the temp drop! But it does look like your LP is getting longer. Enjoy your trip!

    @nolemomma14 I’m starting to enjoy the month of November! We have s ton of family birthdays this month 

    @chichiphin must be a relief to know your blood work came back great! Hopefully the SA results for DH aren’t as bad as they sound? I don’t have any experience with that yet. Also FX for a longer LP!

    @inthewoods23 I’m taking all our leftover chocolate to work this morning. DH has requested I leave the chips at home. Also sounds like not going on this work trip will work out better for you!

    @rikiteacup  would they plan the HSG for today, or schedule you in for another day? I haven’t had any testing done yet so I’m interested to know how the testing works

    @montee1917 I will let you know tomorrow. But, according to Google, an HSG would wash out any egg lingering in my Fallopian tubes right now so it would definitely be performed next cycle if no BFP. I hope this won't be an appointment where they say "oh well, not much we can do right now". At least it's in the middle of the afternoon so if it is short, I am off work for the rest of the day and still getting paid.

  • @cpiper39 Hope the remainder of the week flies by for you!

    @elle-0409 I feel like my temps always are lower if I test earlier. Hope you have safe travels!

    @nolemomma14 Happy November!

     @chichiphin sorry for the thermometer issues - it looks so pretty though. FX AF stays away!

     @montee1917 Hope everyone at the office appreciate the extra candy!

    @inthewoods23 two minutes for a temp seems like a long time to me, but maybe I'm just impatient! Hope everything goes well next week with the RE!

    @rikiteacup I'm looking forward to hearing how your appointment goes! Hope your doctor is helpful! Chart looks good!

    @pugmom Welcome! Sorry you are worried about your timing, FX it works out for you!

    Testing: not today, expecting AF

    R/R: Rant: Tired of waiting to know what my body is up to. Rave: Rain predicted for this weekend which gives me an excuse to lounge around which I am looking forward to after several busy weekends last month.

    CS/Q:  temp drop and some cramps this am and I expected AF by now (she usually swings by in the morning) but since she is still a no show I figured I would stop by and say hi!

  • @chichiphin So sorry for all the emotions, but glad you are getting good news on some fronts. Hope you can do something for yourself this week, you tots deserve it.

    @nolemama24 Thanksgiving is the best! I'm so excited! Especially now that DH will be home in time (he was supposed to get in day of or after from a work trip). 

    Month/Cycle: 3/3 
    CD/DPO: CD16, 2DPO
    Timing: -4, -2, & O
    Typical LP length: 14 days
    Testing: In a week or so, maybe, but we'll be on vacation for a wedding and not sure I want to ruin the high.

    R/R: Also very few trick-or-treaters at our house. They were out and about, just passing our cul-de-sac apparently. A couple of houses had their firepits in their drives ways and that was awesome, may do that next year.

    CS/Q: None.

    @cpiper39 Too bad you only got a few kids.. but more candy for you? Glad work is keeping you busy and distracted!

    @elle-0409 Sorry about the temp drop. Hope you have a great time visiting with your family!

    @nolemomma14 Thanksgiving and then the holidays is exciting! Guess it’s time to start Christmas shopping.. FX AF stays away!

    @chichiphin Sounds like a bit of a roller coaster for you right now. Sorry about YH results. I don’t think it’s a bad idea to push for a second opinion from an RE.

    @montee1917 Do you think the dip and spotting could be implantation? FX for you

    @inthewoods23 Glad that work won’t interfere with your bloodwork. 

    @rikiteacup GL at your appointment!

    @PugMum I agree this community is such a great support to each other. Sorry YH’s man cold interfered with HIO. I’d be so angry!

    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: 17/2? 

    Timing: -3, -2, -1, +1

    Typical LP length: 12

    Testing: Maybe around 11 dpo

    R/R: We got about 120 kids last night so happy about that! And my mom & stepdad are coming in from out of town for a few days so it will be good to see them! 

    CS/Q: Not sure when I ovulated but I’m thinking CD 15? Not great at reading these charts yet. I’ll put my chart below.

  • @misshelen86 CD15 looks right, but are the circles open bc you temped at times outside of about a 15-30 min window from each other?
    @foodislove that sounds like a fun street to be on! I'd def do a firepit :) 
    @queenie_b your chart still looks good right now! FX AF stays away! Dunno how you're still holding out with POAS

    Month/Cycle: 1/1 

    CD/DPO: 18/6

    Timing: -1

    Typical LP length: 11

    Testing: Only if I’m late 

    R/R: Our neighborhood was busy but not like it has been in past years. I’m seeing a lot of complaints of decreased trick or treating from a lot of people today and I’m wondering if it being on a Wednesday was the culprit. 

    CS/Q: - -

    @chichiphin I’m glad your LP seems to be lengthening. Did you do anything to help (sorry if I’ve missed that somewhere!) 

    @inthewoods23 I really love that YooHoo idea. I’m digging these unconventional treats I see popping up.

    @rikiteacup good luck at your appointment this afternoon. 

    @pugmom TW***potentionally triggering subject*** When were you here before? My previous times it was almost so overwhelming the amount of participation that I felt that I didn’t connect with anyone. This time it’s a much smaller group and so much easier to “recognize” people. 

    @misshelen86 My old neighborhood was crazy and we’d get upwards of 300 kids. Last night we probably had about 100. 

    @foodislove jealous you guys had fire pit weather for Halloween. And what a clever idea!

  • @queenie_b oh i'm sorry either I missed that or I didn't recall. The TWW board is very busy these days so I feel like I lose track. 

    @Mother0fDragons I take B6 & Vitex every day and this is my 3rd month of taking it. So, 3 months got me one more day hah

  • @chichiphin Please don't apologize, trust me I am regretting it! No sign of my auntie but I drink way too much water to think about testing during the day. 
    TTGP November 2018 Siggy Challenge - Thanksgiving Dinner Fails


  • @Mother0fDragons it is a little more expensive than buying a few bags of candy, but it's easy in that each kid gets 1. The one year I did candy I was giving handfuls and sometimes kids ended up with like 10 pieces of candy and others would get 5 (probably exaggerating the numbers here). Also I had gotten a carton of Hershey's chocolate milk one year at Halloween and it has been one of my favorite memories so I decided to do the same.

    Individual snack packs of food are good too like goldfish, teddy Graham's, etc. I think it's nice to get something that's not straight sugar!

  • @misshelen86 my head is all over the place with what that dip means, both good and bad. Only time will tell! I guess maybe this is why some people stop temping after O is confirmed 😂

  • @nolemomma14 Autumn is my favorite time of the year. Bring on the food and giant sweaters!
    @chichiphin I'm glad that your blood work came back and that all looks good! And hopefully, there is an easy fix for your DH. Happy Anniversary! Jewelry sounds exquisite. And high five on your LP!!!
    @montee1917 I'm also curious about a possible implantation dip/spotting scenario for you. FX!
    @inthewoods23 YooHoo is such a stellar idea! I'm also glad that you won't have any issues getting blood work done next week.
    @rikiteacup GL at your appointment today!
    @PugMum I'm sorry that your husband was under the weather. I've been fighting a nasty cold for over a week now.

  • I missed you ladies yesterday!  I was only able to do some GTKY before my day got crazy.  After school I really needed to unplug and I didn't want to post and run. 

    @Mother0fDragons I was at my mom's helping her hand out candy last night and she only got a handful of kids, too.  I think where she lives, kids are going to local businesses in the center or town, instead. 
    @misshelen86 enjoy visiting with your family! 
    @foodislove the fire pit idea sounds like so much fun for Halloween!
    @queenie_b enjoy the rainy, relaxing weekend!
    @PugMum sorry your DH is sick.  Mine was sick right during O back in August so I get how upsetting it can be.  I hope he feels better soon!
    @rikiteacup I hope your appointment went well. FX you get a plan moving forward if this cycle doesn't work out (I hope it is your cycle, though!)
    @inthewoods23 glad things are working out with your RE appointment. 
    @montee1917 I hope work can take your mind off of symptom spotting!
    @chichiphin that's great that your bloodwork came back normal.  Hopefully when you and DH meet with a urologist you can get some more answers and a plan to move forward.
    @nolemomma14 I love November, too.  I am already deciding what to make for Thanksgiving dessert.  
    @elle-049, sorry about the temp drop. :( I hopw you have a nice time with your family.  Enjoy wearing those scarves!
    @cpiper39 good luck with testing this weekend! FX for you!

    Month/Cycle: 4/4

    CD/DPO: 26/6

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

    Typical LP length: 11-14 days

    Testing: Going to try and hold off until next Friday (if AF doesn't arrive on Thursday like FF is predicting).

    R/R: I have so much grading to do tonight, I want to cry. I don't put off correcting, I just gave so many assessments over the last week and a half.  But it's almost Friday and if I get everything done tonight, I won't have much to do over the weekend. So that's my silver lining to a late night. 

    CS/Q: Holy bloating, Batman!  I feel like a Macy's Thanksgiving balloon today, and I want all the sugar. It did not help that there was cake at lunch today. I usually feel like this 6DPO, so I am not surprised, but I just feel yucky and premenstrual and blah.  Temps are still up though, so I won't count myself out yet.

    @misshelen86 Oh my gosh, no wonder nobody had any trick-or-treaters last night. They all went to your house! I'm glad that you had a good turnout.
    @emeraldduchess Good luck with your grading! Hopefully, you can get it done and then relax over the weekend.

    Also @ everyone: Have you all seen this link? Not sure if it's accurate, but I thought it was interesting. So, if you have an odd time frame for temping, this should help convert what you got to your correct reading. My adjusted temp was still under the cover line, but just barely.

    I donto know if any of you would be willing to help me out here but I had what I think to have been implantation bleeding the 27th- 30th took a test today but I'm not sure if my eyes are just playing tricks on me  

    **Image Removed by Admin**
  • @bfuhrman01 It is against TOU to ask if you are pregnant, and unless things have changed since the last time I was here, you definitely don't post something you peed on here.  This is your first post, I would suggest you read around the board further. Take down the pee stick.  I wish I saw something for you, but unfortunately I don't see a second line.  Good luck, lurk and rejoin the conversation in a few days.

    @montee1917 I hope work was able to keep you busy and distracted

    @inthewoods23 I love that you pass out Yoo-hoo! It’s always nice to see non candy stuff being passed out! Fingers crossed for you if you decide to test this weekend! 

    @rikiteacup I hope your appt went well yesterday! 

    @PugMum I’m sorry your H was sick during that time. Hopefully your timing still works out! 

    @queenie_b  I hope AF stays away! 

    @foodislove that’s so great that DH will be home for thanksgiving! I just love a whole day of delicious food, lounging around and watching football! I love the fire pits in your driveways, what a fun way to spend Halloween! 

    @misshelen86 that is so many trick or treaters!! 

    @emeraldduchess I hope you were able to get all of the grading done!
