    R/R:  I am pretty discouraged.  I had thought I O’ed, and my opks are lighter, cramping stopped, cp and cm are no longer fertile, but no temp rise.  But, the last two days have had serious sleep disruption, so maybe I did and need to be patient.  We have had a stomach virus hit the house(why last nights sleep was awful) so I am worried if I didn’t O I will soon and we will miss opportunity.  I need to stop obsessing over it and make the most of my unexpected day off.

    R/R: Rave - I'm taking this Friday off, as I sit here sipping my coffee, I'm already looking forward to my 4 day work week! I'm also waiting on a proposal from the landscape architect. Super excited about that. We are having some drainage issues in our yard and we also want to add more grass and privacy shrubs/trees to make the space more usable. Today, there are beds that line the fence and at some points, they're 12 feet deep. Just make a super huge mess with three dogs...

    CS/Q: not yet

    @holly321 do you usually O around the same time? Hopefully just a delayed rise and you definitely have the dates covered so fingers crossed it was just an anomaly with the stomach virus disturbing the household.

    @cdnrunning, I have in the past had really off cycles here and there, but generally I do O on either cd 12 or cd 13.  I have occasionally started to O, then not and do it a few days later, but that generally seems stress related, which is not really an issue right now.  Enjoy your 4 day week!  Good luck with the landscaping architect, we are in a similar situation with our yard, but can’t make our minds up.

    R/R: actually had a restful weekend.  not loving back to work!

    CS/Q: pretty sure O is done, and I had a "rise" today but it's an open circle and not following a 4 hour stretch. ugh.  we got all the HIO we can for the next few days as I'm back out of town.  Hoping i will get some sleep and conformation tomorrow.

  • @holly321 thanks, and good on you too! I Myself am not perfect either and wasn't careful enough about reading labels in the beginning. I made these "cookies" yesterday and they were terrible. Then I stopped calling them cookies and now they're tolerable. 

    @sevenn good luck in the TWW! Sorry about your HIO troubles. 
  • @holly321, oh no, sorry for the stomach bug. Hope everyone feels better soon!

    @jennifer_louise, the gif of you in the Ben and Jerry's aisle has me LOLing.

    @cdnrunning, yay for 4 day work week! Mondays are so much more manageable when you know you have a 3 day weekend coming up!

    CS/Q: nah
  • edited January 7
    @holly321 Ugh.... stomach viruses are the WORST!  I could definitely see that making your cycle a little bit off.  Hopefully it doesn't throw things off too much!

    @cdnrunning That's super exciting about exciting about the landscape makeover!  I hope it makes a huge difference!

    @jennifer_louise You are a stronger person than I am!  Hopefully it starts to get easier for you now that you're through the 1st week.  That's always the roughest part for me.

    @sevenn I hope you get a more clear indication tomorrow!

    R/R:  I'm benching myself after this cycle until March or so for reasons I won't get into here.  On one hand, I'm feeling the extra pressure to get my BFP this sycle, but on the other hand, I'm somewhat looking forward to a couple months of not stressing about TTGP.

    CS/Q:  I'll log back in on the app and post my chart.  It's kind of all over the place, but I lost my BBT, and a couple of times I didn't remember to temp until I had already been awake for a couple of minutes.  My brain doesn't work first thing in the morning...

  • @holly321 blehhh to the stomach bug. Sorry your BBT isn't lining up with your other signs. FX the sickness runs its course quickly and GTFO soon so things can return to normal. 
    @cdnrunning that's exciting about the landscaping, and your short week! 
    @jennifer_louise I have to shuffle  past the ice cream with my eyes closed and pray I don't hit anyone with my cart. The struggle is real. I also can't get in and out of Costco without getting an ice cream cone. 
    @sevenn FX your timing works for you this cycle! 
    @galentine would switching to decaf coffee in the morning help ease the transition? I'm 2 years into quitting caffeine and I find I just miss the smell/taste of coffee more than the buzz now. But I also did it for mental health reasons because caffeine aggravates my anxiety so it's a little different than stopping for TTC.

Debating whether I'm going to keep up with the acupuncture. *tw* My naturopath is on mat leave so I don't have a relationship with the new doc (plus 25 other excuses for why I don't think I'll go back just yet). 
    R/R: Rant: We fail at SMEP because it's too much pressure to stick to a schedule. Then it makes me more grumpy when I make a comment about missing a day and MF tries to turn it around on me and tell me I'm so cranky when I don't get laid. As usual, completely missed the point. It doesn't matter right now because I don't anticipate I'll O for another 10-20 days but I was trying to get him in the habit early. Ah well, as long as he can rally when the clinic gives us the green light. 

    I even don't watch Parks & Rec but I'm going to start, I promise. 

    Rave: We picked our bridesmaids dresses on Saturday and I think I've chosen my colour scheme as a result. Yesterday marked 6 months to the day until the wedding! Feeling a little more enthused about it now that we have some more details worked out. 

    CS/Q: Follies still measuring small (7.8-8.2mm) this morning, and who knows wtf my RHR is doing these days. Not much to see.

  • @holly321 Sorry you didn’t get the temp rise you were expecting. FX you see it in the next day or two. Hope everyone is feeling better soon! 

    @cdnrunning That’s really exciting about the landscaping. Enjoy your short work week!

    @jennifer_louise What amazing self control to go 7 days without sugar! Good for you!

    @sevenn Hope you get the rise you were looking for tomorrow- and a better night’s sleep!

    @galentine Good luck with the cutting of caffeine. Are you going cold turkey or just cutting back? 

    @shamrocandroll Keeping FX for you this cycle. 

    @kiki047 I can see how SMEP could create some stress if you’re not able to keep up with the schedule. What’s your colour scheme for the wedding? So excited for you guys, 6 months is so close! How is all the planning going?

    @jennifer_louise GET IT GIRL! Lol, I've refused to try and supplement any sugar free treats int he house b/c I know they won't taste the same no matter how much Suzy from sugar free blog land claims they're sooooooo wonderful. Bullshit bulltshit bullshit. I'm entered into the phase I call "Possibly a major miscalculation on my part b/c sugar is apparently life" 

    @kiki047 How often are you going in?? Don't be too hard on yourself about SMEPing, I like to think I'm letting DH's little soldiers regret and grow into generals when we miss a day :D And you're taunting us! What's the color scheme?!?!? coral? lavendar? maroon? GOLD? PLS SAY ITS GOLD.

    @elle-0409 Rollercoasters and drinks are life. Pls enjoy.

  • @stephanie123456 lol about your high maintenance twin. I feel for you, lady! That doesn't sound like a super start to a marriage but hopefully he's nice. 

    @elle-0409 I have actually heard that unprotected phone sex with insurance agents (in hot tubs) is a sure-fire way to get KU. I'm doing that next cycle. 

    @kiki047 PICS OF BRIDESMAID DRESSES? ?? 😁 

    @nomangos23 good on you for not trying non-sugar treats. You're right, they suck. I just had a itch to bake something Yesterday!! I couldn't help it. But also, why couldn't we have picked February instead? This month is too damn long. 
  • @nomangos23 About 10ish years ago I started having really bad stomach issues.  I felt like I was going to throw up basically every day.  They did all kinds of elimination diets for gluten, dairy, etc. and nothing helped.  It took forever to figure it out, but it ended up being artificial sweeteners.  Now I can't even chew sugar free gum without it effing up my stomach.  You don't realize how many things have artificial sweeteners in them until you really start to pay attention.  I had to switch yogurt brands, gum, mints, and a few other things I never even thought about before then.

  • @shamrocandroll Oh wow! I'm glad you were able to figure out what was causing it. I haven't seem any help benefits yet, but I'm only 7 days in so it will probably be another week before I notice anything. I keep waking up thinking "Todays the day I lost 10 lbs" and... nope!

  • @kiki047, it's not even the coffee that's the issue for me, or maybe not even the caffeine. I just really like the flavor of pop, LOL. I'm trying to substitute water, but water is just so BORING. Flavored water is helping a little. Also, sorry for being "not" cranky!! (One of my fav leslie gifs!) Also, I second @jennifer_louise, PICS OF THE DRESSES, PLZ.

    @misshelen86, oh no, sorry to see you back here!

    @stephanie123456, good luck dealing with your sister. She sounds entertaining 😂

    @elle-0409, whoops sorry you can't see my gif in the spoiler. It's Leslie Knope with a child sized bottle of soda cup on her head. "Child size" is 512 oz., or roughly the size of a small child.

    @kiki047 Such pretty colors and LOVE those bridesmaid dresses. My friend who just got married in November had almost the exact same color palette and it was so beautiful. We also had Bill Levkoff dresses and they were fantastic.  <3
