    R/R: it felt like this week dragged forever but now it’s the last day of November? Wtffff?? Not really a rant but that’s all I got. Rave- DH won MAJOR points yesterday by buying me a solo movie ticket. He knows my introverted self has been super wound up/ stressed since thanksgiving break because I’ve gotten 0 alone time and now we’re watching our friend’s crazy high strung dog which is stressing me out. And the movie (Instant Family) was good! I ate a whole box of Reese’s pieces and cried my eyes out. 

    CS/Q: nothing too exciting going on. Temps are slowly going down which confuses me but they’re still pretty consistent. So far SMEP is going well but we’ll see 🤣

    R/R: I woke up with a killer headache this morning. But came into work to an email saying I won free kayaking at our zoo Christmas party Sunday, my family loves kayaking!

    CS/Q: temps are super consistent and look pretty these past few days, hopefully it's a good sign.  We were originally going to follow shettles method because MH really wants a girl but have decided to forgo it and just get what we get which should make things less stressful and up our chances. 

    Ps. Can you not do a spoiler on mobile?

    WAYDTGKU: OPK & stuff
     
    R/R: ehhh not much. DH brought up going to target this weekend so ya that's a huge rave! Haha. Hopefully he won't change his mind when it's time to go.. I already have so many secret things I will just happen to see and then convince him we need them. Rant- I thought DH and I were on the same page with TTC but then last night he made a comment about just NTNP. I think he's just tired of hearing me talk about this, but I don't think he realizes what goes into timing.

    CS/Q: Eh. My OPKs didn't come in the mail yet.. If they don't come today I'm going to have to get at CVS or something.

    @b_1029 gad SMEP is working out! and that is sweet of YH 
    @kimmer1412 sorry about the headache
    @creamcheeseplease sorry about YH. I've realized men say things at the top of their mind with not much depth behind it, so maybe in the moment he was over it but he really doesn't mean it.

    WAYDTGKU: IUI w/letrozole, but a lot of diagnostic shit along the way
     
    R/R: Yesterday was overwhelming. CD1 came in hot, which meant I had to get a LOT of stuff scheduled with the RE. This morning involved 10 tubes of blood work, and I have a saline tubal profusion on Dec 7, which timing kind of sucks bc we are going to a giant college football game on Dec 8 and have house guests. Hopefully I won't be in too much discomfort that day or the next!

    CS/Q: nah.

  • @b_1029 that is a nice gift from YH! glad you had a nice time.

    @kimmer1214 congrats on winning free kayaking! 

    @chichiphin I'm sorry for CD1. I hope that the procedure won't impact your ability to enjoy your guests and the game! Also that's a lot of blood.
    b_1029kimmer1412chichiphin
  • @chichiphin oh man, that’s so many vials of blood! I’m generally good at getting blood taken but idk if I could do that much...hope you’re feeling ok and sorry you’re back here. I’m glad you have a plan moving forward and crossing everything that this IUI works for you! Not sure what that procedure is but I hope it doesn’t cause too much pain. 
    @creamcheeseplease sorry about YH. Hopefully you all can get on the same page again. And agreed, it is frustrating when they don’t understand everything we have to think of!

    From yesterday:
    @kiki047 - I'm glad the emergency appointment was no biggy, and that you got answers! You're taking the first step forward and hopefully you'll get one of your 40(!) follies to actually release an egg.

    From today:
    @b_1029 - Aww YH is a dear. I've been wanting to watch that movie, glad you enjoyed it! Also, December is tomorrow, what??

    @kimmer1412 - The weird thing about trying for a girl is you're literally trying to kill sperm. I would definitely just roll the dice and try to get a baby. It's still pretty much 50/50 either way. *TW* Also I conceived a girl on O day, so so much for that method *end TW*

    @creamcheeseplease - What's on your Target list?!

    @chichiphin - Hey girlfriend! You aren't supposed to follow me over here!! I'll be crossing my fingers for you this cycle.

    @brookert615 - Love the sweater! That show was the only reason I kept my Netflix subscription for so long. Wish they would come out with another season soon.

    R/R: I'm making a family calendar for my mom for Christmas and it's been crazy to find photos, scan them (without a working laptop), and put it together. But my sister came over, and we worked on it while DH was watching his Saints ( :'( ) and it's done and sent to Shutterfly! Another gift down, just 2 more to go.

    CS/Q: Finally a normal pre-O temp!

  • @marebear15 its such a strange method and I'm totally skeptical so I'm glad MH is on board to just roll with the punches now. 
  • @marebear15 I agree - they need to come out with another season! That's such a sweet gift! And wonderful news about your temps!!!

  • @nomangos23 Hahah! I love it! I take one of the Styrofoam cups from the break room and cut it down to put it in my pocket. I think this time I will bring my purse and set the test in there so I don't have to stand there and wait ten minutes LOL. Good luck, fellow CPIPPF (creepy pee in public places friend)  :D. Oh Christmas crafting - what are you making? Enjoy that oatmeal  ;).

  • @b_1029 aww big bonus points for YH. That’s so sweet of him, and I’m glad you enjoyed the movie. 
    @kimmer1412 free kayaking! Sweet! Your work party just keeps getting better. 
    @creamcheeseplease super jealous of your target trip. Us Canadians are deprived after Target Canada dropped the ball. Sorry YH seems like he’s changing his mind. Like chichiphin said, sometimes I don't think men think before they speak and they especially don't always understand how we'll perceive it. Hopefully he didn't really mean it the way it came off. 
    @chichiphin *hugs* I'm so sorry to see you back here. Excuse me while I go puke in a corner @ your 10 vials of blood. 4 is my limit. I've been fine everyday with my 1 vial but 10?! oh hell no. Hope the rest of your testing isn't too bad and you'll be back on your feet for the game and your house guests!
    @brookert615 Ew, I hate big flocks of birds. They creep me out. Individual birds or just a few in a tree are fine but 10 or more all together = nightmares. Sorry about your car, hope you can get it washed off soon before it cakes on. Have fun at your party tonight, jerk chicken sounds amazing!
    @marebear15 thank you, I'm relieved too. And so excited to get things rolling. MF is still worried he's shooting blanks but tbh I'd rather try naturally this cycle not knowing than to move straight to IUI or IVF. We're making a family calendar for MF's side, but he is in way over his head with it now that his brother has his hands full and can't help. I don't know why that family can't just do anything the easy way. It is SO complicated.
    @nomangos23 lol enjoy your oatmeal. HIO is good for your health too so go get 'em girlfriend! ;)

    WAYDTGKU:  PNVs, BBT/RHR, CM, Vit C & D, Omega 3s, CoQ10, Metformin, Ovasitol (until I've transitioned up to full dose of metformin), letrozole, PCOS diet (low carb), HIO, softcups, acupuncture, doing a diagnostic monitored cycle w/my RE this month, sonohysterogram & another pelvic u/s booked next week to check my tubes. 
     
    R/R: In case anyone missed my update from last night, the big emergency at the RE's office was that I have a low grade bladder infection. I'm already on antibiotics leading up to my sono next week so I have to wait until I finish those to start the amoxicillin. My RE doesn't think I'm ovulating on my own so I started letrozole last night to see if that helps me ovulate. I have lots of follicles, no cysts, but my hormones are all out of whack. 

    CS/Q: I'll post once I have a few more days of temps. My RHR has been all over the map lately, I wonder if it's just my anxiety.

    @marebear15 My mom loves those calendars. This year tho we went with homemade throw pillows for the universities that MH and I attended 
    @nomangos23 kind of jealous of your saturday! why so much oatmeal tho...?
    @kiki047 ugh I'm so sorry about the infection - I was lurking yesterday and was hoping it wasn't anything too serious!

  • @brookert615 ugh, so many pills. Probiotics are helping a bit but my stomach is protesting very loudly, lol. I reeaally hope nobody else can hear the grumbling. 
    @chichiphin thankfully it isn't bothering me, unlike past UTIs. mamanbebe scared me off my cranberry supplements last month when we were looking at research about how it could make your CM too acidic and kill off the good swimmers... pretty sure that's all a bunch of woo woo but I wasn't taking any chances. Figures I get an infection a few weeks later lol.

    @kiki047:  Ugh!  so sorry about the infection

    @brookert615:  that happened to a coworker of mine, but we parked in a garage at that point.  It was like a flock of birds had come into the garage and nested on her car.  It was so gross!

    @chichiphin:  I feel like thats such a stressful rush to get all the testing and everything together!  Big high-fives for you getting it all arranged!

    Sorry I posted and never came back! I’ve been in meetings all day and was casually scrolling during them but didn’t have time to focus and reply. 

    @brookert615 that sweater is awesome! So perfect for so many reasons haha. Hope you get that +OPK and have a blast at your party!
    @marebear15 that’s such a good gift for your mom! 
    @nomangos23 don’t give him too much credit, usually he’s like “idk why you’re stressed, I unloaded the dishwasher 6 days ago so I totally help you around the house” lol! Yay for +OPKs and some solo time to craft! Hope you have fun doing both things!
    @kiki047 sorry about your bladder infection but I’m glad it was nothing crazy and you can get it taken care of! What a stressful day for you!
    @lcking82 FX for a +OPK soon!!

    AFM, this is way too much TMI but I have like...no CM right now. I’m wondering if the ultrasound gel messed with me or something. It’s not making me very optimistic about the next few days...I’m expecting a +OPK tomorrow or so. Boo.
