Re: TWW Fri-YAY! 2/1

  • @inthewoods23 hey if FF is right about CD16 it makes my timing better LOL. Your chart looks so pretty!  FX for you!

    @kbrown2385 not sure about the metformin but I also apparently ovulated late this month, January has been strange all around LOL. Your timing looks good too!

    @kimmer1412 - I think CD16 is pretty good for O. You don't have to have fertile CM on the O day because by that time you don't need to be keeping the sperm alive anymore.

  • Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: CD18/ 3DPO

    Timing: -5, -3, 0, 2

    Typical LP length: 10 days

    Testing: I will start at 8DPO. 

    R/R: I was expecting my shift yesterday but it didn't happen until today. Tempdrop changed one of my older temps giving my a shift with a fallback rise. So now I'm 3DPO. I'm so relieved because I was beginning to worry my body had a failed attempt to ovulate. 

    CS/Q: 

    @kimmer1412 enjoy a casual dress day. Those were always my favorite days. I'm so much more comfortable in Jean's than dress. 

    @kbrown2385 I hope your sleep improves. I'm glad it hasn't affected your temping. 

    @inthewoods23 that show sounds interesting. I have never heard of anything like that. I may have to go Google this. Lol!

    @inthewoods23 yes the idea of going back to sleep is great lol. It doesn’t always happen though. Where can I find that show? I’m intrigued!

    @kimmer1412 glad I’m not alone with weird ovulation this cycle! I’m also glad you think my timing looks good. I was frustrated dh dropped the ball a couple of times haha

    @emeraldcity603 glad your body came through this cycle and did what it was supposed to do! It’s all so frustrating sometimes!

    @b_1029 we'll be pee buddies if my blood test comes back positive! I have one HPT left and I'm saving it for when I know I'm KU! Loving our synchronized menses! 😆 I'm feeling in the same boat a little with the extra finances that have popped up for us. Had to take a pet to the vet last month and he might eventually need a lump removed. *TW* my sister's baby shower gifts *end TW* seems like we've spent so much this year, and we just got to February!

    Our house has been 55 before and that's no fun when you're home! I saw on the news yesterday that a house in our area lost power for a number of hours and their house went from being 70 to the 30s! Like holy hell that's cold for a house! Sounds like their insulation sucks 😕

    ETA cuz I wasn't finished!

  • @inthewoods23 it is nice to have a buddy :) maybe we'll synchronized-move over to Oct. as well! Awww I hope your baby is ok. Hopefully it's nothing serious. We usually keep our house chilly, but never under 60! I can't even imagine...the 30's?!?! 

    @stephanie123456 happy Friday! Sorry your temps are being goofy.

  • @b_1029 yes! October BMB please! I always wanted a fall due date because that's like the best time to be on maternity leave. It's not too hot, not too cold. Not a lot of people at places like the zoo so you can just stroll around with your newborn *sigh* but it's just a dream right now. FX for us!

    @stephanie123456 looks like you have the start of a triphasic pattern going. Of course that means nothing 😅

  • @stephanie123456 - Were those last two temps with the open circles taken later than your normal time? 
    Animals in Love - TTGP February sig contest


  • @b_1029 hopefully yall get the furnace fixed asap. That doesnt sound fun. 

    @stephanie123456 I think your chart looks good even with the wonky temps. 


    b_1029
  • @b_1029:  Oh no about the furnace!  Hopefully can get fixed ASAP.  And it always seems like expenses happen all at once!  

    @kimmer1412:  agree with day 16 as O date, too.  

    @inthewoods23:  I'm going to check that show out (but probably when DH is not around...)

    Month/Cycle:   Cycle 6

    CD/DPO:  CD48/2DPO

    Timing: not great.  

    Typical LP length:  14 days

    Testing:   Valentine's Day (if no AF by then) - will be 15DPO

    R/R:  rave - Friday.  Enough said.  Also...family stuff that was stressing out DH (and me) seems to be reaching a resolution.  Will be a long road to normal, but I feel like I can see the dawn.

    CS/Q:  Nah.  Stopped temping back around CD30.

  • @marebear15 no... my "regular" time is 6:20am, today was 4:10am, yesterday was 5:40am.

    @inthewoods23 of course! How does your chart this cycle compare to previous cycles? I'm rooting so hard for us this month.

    @b_1029 I just don't understand this thermometer... granted, it's five years old. I am also team "would like to join the october bmb" over here.

  • @b_1029 sorry about your furnace! Hopefully it’s a quick fix, but glad you have somewhere to go if you need it!

    @stephanie123456 sorry you’re having sleep issues too! Fx we both get some quality sleep soon!

    @lcking82 glad things are getting better on the family front. 
    b_1029
  • @stephanie123456 besides the 1 big dip, this is the most consistent I've seen with increases in temps after O. A few times temps have been consistently holding, but usually they're still a bit erratic. I do oral temp though. I didn't temp during the TWW after my first IUI so I really don't know if this is a really good sign or not compared to last time. As much as I might like to POAS next week, I'm gonna be paying for the blood test regardless so I won't POAS.

    @kimmer1412 I hope the busyness of today helps the day go by faster!
    Sorry for the frustration of being unsure of your o date. 

    @kbrown2385 Sorry to hear that you haven’t been sleeping well! Hopefully the weekend should get you all caught up on those zzzs. Thanks for the book suggestions yesterday! I had enjoyed girl on the train, and all your other suggestions have holds at the library. I’m excited to get to them later!!

    @inthewoods23 That show sounds cute. Chart looks great!

    @emeraldcity603 glad to hear that today’s temp helped to reassure you about o. I had a dip 2dpo too, so our charts look pretty similar. Let’s hope it’s some well kept secret that a 2dpo dip is a good sign!

    @b_1029 I hope someone can come out to fix your furnace soon!!! I wish you much heat and relaxation this weekend!!

    @stephanie123456 those are early mornings!! You are in the homestretch. I know we’ve been on opposite sides of wto/tww, and I’m new, but I’m really rooting for you this weekend!!!

    @lcking82 glad to hear you can see the light, sorry to hear you’ve been having a tough time. It’s really hard to be stressed about fam stuff, especially when it’s dragging you and YH at the same time!

    Month/Cycle: 9/9

    CD/DPO: 20/3

    Timing: h

    Typical LP length: 11-13

    Testing: 14 dpo

    R/R: thanks for all the book recommendations!!! Based on what I’d already read and what was available, I ended up with both of @samashley1 ‘s suggestions. I’m so excited to start a new series (Cormoran Strike), especially since I’m really enjoying book #1. I get ridiculously excited to have a book that I’m enjoying, and to know there are more waiting, eeeee!!! I also screenshot the other suggestions, so I should be set for a while! Yay!!

    CS/Q: is it a big deal to forgo opk +5? I feel pretty confident that o is long gone...


    jennifer_louiseb_1029
  • Late to the party but I’m here!

    @kimmer1412 I hate when O is hard to pinpoint. Hopefully it becomes more clear in a few days. 

    @kbrown2385 Sorry about the early morning waking! 

    @inthewoods23 I hear you on the cold weather. As I told DH, it’s February now.. which is almost May!

    @emeraldcity603 Yay for a lovely temp shift!

    @b_1029 That’s really sh*tty about your furnace going. I hope it can be fixed quickly and the cost isn’t outrageous.

    @stephanie123456 That’s one beautiful chart. I’m keeping FX for you. I can’t believe you haven’t POAS yet!

    @lcking82 Glad the family drama is winding down. 

    @begging4abump I have so many books on the go. I’m reading multiple ones at once, but it’s a great distraction for me!

    Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD/DPO: 27/ who knows? Somewhere between 11-14

    Timing: Good

    Typical LP length: 11-13

    Testing: WFAF

    R/R: Finally have a break from work.. one week off. It is very much needed. I celebrated with a hair appointment this morning (cut/colour) and am feeling good. I think I O’d a bit later than I originally thought but I started cramping/spotting today so this should be my last day here. I was kind of hoping AF would arrive today so CD1 would be on Feb 1.. just a little OCD. 

    CS/Q: nope, ready to move on!

  • @begging4abump once you have confirmed ovulation you don't need to use OPKs. They are meant to give you a heads up that ovulation is pending. They can't confirm ovulation though. Since you have 3 temps well above your previous 6 you have confirmed ovulation. 
  • @emeraldcity603 thanks. I typed my question out terribly. 🤦🏽‍♀️I meant to ask if it was crucial to bd +5 after +opk, like how SMEP guidelines advise. Meh, we skipped, and I am ok with that, but I appreciate your taking your time to answer tho!
    emeraldcity603
  • @begging4abump I would assume the egg is long gone by then. It really depends on your CM. Has it dried up yet? I know when using this method to TTA the rule is no unprotected sex until your CM has dried up and you are 4 days past peak and 3 days past your shift. 
  • @emeraldcity603 yea, that’s what I’m thinking. Cm was saying to just move on and go to bed early, ha.
    emeraldcity603
  • @begging4abump I personally like to HIO as SMEP advises in case O is delayed for whatever reason, that way you are still covered. Last cycle I was sure I had O’d early but continued on with SMEP and only in looking back at my cycle did I realize I O’d later than I thought. It looks like you have a clear temp shift though so I wouldn’t worry about your timing!
