Re: TWW Fri-YAY! 11/30

  • Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD/DPO: 21/5

    Timing: -4, -2, O, +1, +2 (if I O'ed on Sunday like FF thinks...but even if it was Monday, timing was really good.)

    Typical LP length: 11-14 days

    Testing: Maybe next weekend

    R/R: Doing my Friday dance this morning!! Looking forward to decorating our tree this weekend (after we put the Halloween stuff away...whoops).  Going to try really hard to be in the Christmas spirit this year. 

    CS/Q: I had a significant temp spike this AM, so yay? I did have a glass of wine last night, but I don't think it would affect this morning's temp that much.

    @jennifer_louise Chart is looking good. Enjoy those bagels!

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD/DPO: 18/5

    Timing: SMEP

    Testing: next week. 

    R/R: I have one more day off and then I work this weekend. Hoping work isn’t too crazy. I’m going to yoga this morning, then doing some meal prep for the weekend.

    @emeraldduchess yay for Christmas decoration! We should post pics when they're all up.
    @jennifer_louise You're the best for bringing bagels to work. I love a warm bagel with cream cheese. Your chart looks good!
    @misshelen86 enjoy your last day off! YOur chart looks great too!
    @riff323 yay for solid CH! And I know the struggle about packing AF supplies. And all my charts look "good" but unfortunately, this isn't enough. If I ovulated from my right ovary, then it's another lost cycle unless a double miracle happens (egg manages to go down a blocked/damaged tube + sperm gan get up there). And if I ovulated from my left ovary, we hope H's sperm make it to the egg.
    @elle-0409 yay for a longer LP! This is really encouraging. Sorry about the BFN.

    Month/Cycle: 8/8

    CD/DPO: 19 / 2

    Timing: Good 

    Typical LP length: 13-15 days

    Testing: no

    R/R: I can't believe it's Friday already! And tomorrow is December.

    CS/Q: body is doing what it's supposed to.

  • @rikiteacup can you believe the year is almost over? Your chart looks good!
    TTGP December Siggy Challenge: Awkward Christmas Photos

  • Good morning ladies! (This sounds way chipper than I actually am today)

    @emeraldduchess I'm hoping we can get our tree up this weekend but we have a big fish tank in the way!

    @jennifer_louise thanks, now I have a hankering for a Panera cinnamon crunch bagel!! I heard we have donuts though. I'm guessing from my retiring coworker. Today is his last day!

    @misshelen86 after the shitty evening I had yesterday, yoga sounds sooo good right now!

    Month/Cycle: 17/16

    CD/DPO: 21/6-ish

    Timing: okay

    Typical LP length: 12 days

    Testing: maybe next week? I have one HPT left and the RE said it wouldn't be necessary in my next cycle since they'll do a blood test some days after the IUI.

    R/R: RE appointment went well. We spent more time waiting in the waiting room than actually in the appointment. But next cycle will be IUI with letrozole, trigger, and progesterone. 

    CS/Q: BIG temp jump this morning. FF actually moved my O date from Friday to Saturday!

  • @elle-0409 I always feel impatient when I'm waiting for AF. Like, you KNOW it's coming so you just want to get it over with so you can try again. I'm so glad your LP is getting longer, that's awesome!

    @inthewoods23 I'm glad your appointment went well!

    Mobile bumping, will add tags later!! 

    Month / Cycle:  2/2

    CD / DPO: CD22 / between 5-7DPO (each app is telling me something different 😤)

    Timing: HIO everyday of FW

    Typical LP length: last cycle was 8-9

    Testing: early next week because I like to torture myself 

    R/R: yay for Friday!! We are going to get our Xmas tree tonight (if it doesn’t rain). Hopefully decorate the rest of the house too this weekend. 

    CS/Q: so confused by my chart. Based off my temp today, FF moved up O by 1 day. By like I said, all of my apps say something different. So we are just winging it this cycle and going with a different thermometer for next month. 

    ETA chart didn’t want to attach!

    December Siggy Challenge: Awkward Family Photos

  • @stephanie123456 I would get a different thermometer and set an alarm so you take your temp at around the same time every morning. It's going to be hard for FF to calculate O day with erratic temps. I set the time at 6:30am in the FF app and I've taken my temp as early as 5:45AM and as late as 7:30AM and never got an empty circle.

    R/R: Crazy day already. Not much sleep last night and I had to drive to work today. Waaaah! Hoping to get some work done, then GTFO of work as soon as I’m finished!

    CS/Q: Nada.

    Timing: -2

    Testing: Dec 10

    R/R: we just found out we close on dec 10 and I really hope I can tell DH I'm pregnant in our new house.  I have a stomach bug right now so my hopes are all kinds of up even though it's dumb 

  • @daisy0322 I had many of the same thoughts throughout TTC. Like how awesome of a surprise would that be. I hope it works out for you!

  • @riff323 Yay for solid CH’s this month! FX you won’t need the AF supplies.

    @rikiteacup Your chart is looking great as well! I also can’t believe it will be December tomorrow. Even though the months are flying by, TWW is dragging!

    @elle-0409 Sorry about the BFN. Yay for longer LP though! My meal prep is not necessarily always healthy! I would like to do better with that. I need to meal prep due to working 12-hour shifts. I am excited about what I’m making tonight though (and it happens to be vegetarian) sweet potato black bean enchilada bake

    @inthewoods23 Nice jump in temp there! So happy you have a plan in place going forward (although I’m keeping FX you won’t need it).

    @stephanie123456 Wow I think you win the award for HIO! Hope you enjoy your Christmas decorating!

    @lillywonderland Hope your day flies by and you will be home relaxing before you know it!

    @daisy0322 Keeping FX for you!

    @daisy0322 yay for closing!!!

    @lillywonderland I hope work goes by fast and you get some sleep tonight!

    @stephanie123456 have fun getting your Christmas tree!

  • *lurky-loo* Just here to admire some of those charts!

    @emeraldduchess FX that temp spike is a good sign!
    @jennifer_louise longer LP is a huge win, and I don't blame you for getting your hopes up. That's a good lookin' chart lady!
    @rikiteacup love the new avatar. Haha that is one of my fav bitmojis to use. 
    @elle-0409 so sorry for the BFN, but that's great about the longer LP! If AF does grace you with her presence, I hope she is a cooperative guest. 
    @lillywonderland boo to having to drive to work.

  • @kiki047 took the words out of my mouth @SpongeWorthy What kind of tattoo and where?? 

    @daisy0322 I super hope your timing works out!! 

    @stephanie123456 the good news is, your timing looks great any O date!! 
  • @emeraldduchess your timing is inspirational... between me working nights and my hubby working over time for busy season we can only get 2 or 3 days a week.

    @jennifer_louise I'm sorry about you week, I love it when people bring stuff into work though! At my job that happens all the time it's the best. 

    @SpongeWorthy what tattoo do you want?

    @stephanie123456 I LOVE when people have real trees, how exciting!

    @lillywonderland you and your Elf gifs are awesome. :)

    ETA @daisy0322 thank you! I think it helps that DH and I are both teachers(and he coaches a sports team too). We are all about motivation and goals.  :D

  • @lillywonderland I feel silly asking this, but SS?

    @stephanie123456 does it? I feel like this month my chart has been a hot mess since I have FF and Floe telling me different O dates. I am happy to finally see the bump up above 98. That's usually where my post-O temps are.

    @SpongeWorthy I feel good but also nervous. On IUI day DH is suppose to come in to give sperm and then I come in 2 hours later to be inseminated and when the RE said this I as a bit sad because I want DH to be there with me but he's usually very busy with work and probably won't be able to go back 2 hours later for me. I did not enjoy the catheter for the HSG so I'm not exactly looking forward to that feeling again for the IUI.

    @elle-0409 LOL sleep in the garage, :lol:  and rightfully so. I can't wait for the day when you get to tell her to GTFO and stay out... for 9+++ months.

  • Omg @misshelen86 love it!! Wedding pictures are so great.

    @kiki047 I know what you mean this thread is on fire today! I sort felt like all the action was in WTO earlier this week... 

    @SpongeWorthy so. cool. I'm super surprised (but glad) it didn't hurt much. I'm a wuss, would probably wet myself. 
  • @misshelen86 gorgeous! I love that picture!
  • I hope everyone has a great TWW!  Fingers crossed for some early Christmas presents for some of you gals

    Month/Cycle: 10/6.

    CD/DPO: 2 DPO

    Timing: decent -1, O

    Typical LP length: 12-14

    Testing: Big nope

    R/R: I have a 3 day weekend!  I hardly ever get three consecutive days off with my work schedule so I plan to enjoy every moment.  Colorado is due for some snow this weekend so I am looking forward to a little ski date with my honey.  Always bittersweet being able to ski.  Looks like regardless of my potential future pregnancy status I should be able to ski most of the season.  I hope its a great one!  

    CS/Q: My work schedule is too disorganized to allow me to chart.  Pregmate OPKs from Amazon seem to work awesome and are super cheap.  
  • @inthewoods23 SS = special snowflake (or I guess symptom spotting...but I meant special snowflake). ❄️

    @SpongeWorthy Your memorial tatto is simply stunning. ❤️

    @misshelen86 OMG YOU GUYS ARE SO CUTE!!!! 🥰😍❤️Thank you thank you thank you for sharing!!!!!!! (And I totally expected you to have brown hair...LOL!) 

    @denma2015 I love skiing! Have a great time with YH!

    @kiki047 I miss you already!! (C’mon O already!! 😜)

  • @misshelen86 <3 one of the things i love about wedding photos is when they're that good! (I actually found my wedding photographer bc i was going thru someone who i didn't even know's photos bc like one rando fb friend had been tagged in one--i looked thru every damn one of them despite not knowing 99% of them.) anyway. great shot. so awesome. you look stunning and so haapppyyy.
    @SpongeWorthy <3 the tattoo! 
    @denma2015 enjoy yr three-day weekend! & yr date! my SIL loves skiing & i love seeing her pics from it.

    R/R: our 8 mo./old puppy who is mostly housetrained decided to pee in the house twice today AND poop once. she spent plenty of time outside today running around w/ her 5 y/o dog-bro & usu. will come tell me if she's got to go--so frustrating!!!! DH has barely been around for the past few days bc of this art thing he's doing (it finishes tomorrow), so i wonder if she's acting out bc she notices he's been missing--or if that's just me projecting? // I passed my prospectus defense earlier today! it's the "last step" of approval grad students need from their committee before going forward w/ the dissertation-- so passing means i can confidently finish writing the first draft of the dissertation over winter break & then defend it/graduate in the spring. i was nervous, but everything went well & i appreciated the feedback &--it's a big yay/relief.

    @misshelen86 You are seriously stunning!!

    @kagesstarshroom Congrats on passing your prospectus defense!  That must feel like a weight off.  What is your field of study?

    @inthewoods23 I’m sorry the IUI procedure  timing is not what you wanted  :( I hope you can work it out somehow.

    Thanks for all the tattoo love!  I’m thrilled with how it turned out  :)
