Re: WTO Wednesday 2/6

  • Month/Cycle: 3

    CD: 22

    WAYDTGKU: OPKs, checking CM, PNV (thanks for reminding me to get more today!)

    R/R: Rant, a lot of administrative stuff I have to do today. Rave, today is the day my office mate works from home so I have the place to myself. I really like her but sometimes its nice to just be by myself.

    CS/Q: No, just a parade of negative opks to see here...

  • @creamcheeseplease  good luck with the admin stuff today and sorry about all the negative OPKs, FX you get a positive soon

    Month/Cycle: 4/3

    CD: 10 

    R/R: I’ve got so many submittals at work for the projects I manage that need to go into permitting agencies all at the same time my head is going to explode! Rave- it’s hump day!

    CS/Q: so far looking much steadier than last month pre-O. Other than CD1 and 2 all my temps are within 0.25 of a degree, and I will take it!

    @creamcheeseplease Sorry about your negative OPKs. I certainly know how frustrating that is!

    @kopp5988 Yay for hump day! Almost there!

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD: 24 

    WAYDTGKU: All the things

    R/R: I hate this cycle. I feel strongly that I O'ed a couple days ago, but between sporadic temping and me not checking the OPK until after 3 minutes (so I have to retest this afternoon), it looks like I'm having perhaps another LH surge after 3 days in a row of positive OPKs and then a negative day. Hopeful for crosshairs tomorrow, but I'm wary.

    CS/Q: Should I stick with the Wondfos or get a digital OPK for next cycle?

    Edit: Ranting causes typos.

  • @sorarose I was also considering getting a digital for next cycle. I'm cheap though and still have a ton of cheapie opks so I will probably wait until I am out of those before buying a digital. I'm sorry you're having a confusing cycle this go around! 

    @kopp5988 sorry for all the work you have going on right now! I hope today is a productive day for you.

    @creamcheeseplease enjoy the quiet office!  Totally get the frustration about the negative OPK parade.  
    @kopp5988 yay for Hump Day! 🐪
    @sorarose I sometimes have a long surge, too and it's really annoying.  FX you get crosshairs soon!

    Month/Cycle: 7/ (benched for 1 cycle AL)

    CD: 13

    WAYDTGKU: Prenatal vitamins, Fertility Friend, temping, OPKs, HIO, SMEP(ish), red raspberry leaf tea, cutting back on alcohol and cutting it out after O. Might change my mind though because I may want a drink when we go out to celebrate Valentine's Day. 

    R/R: Yesterday was World Nutella Day and I missed it.  That would have been the perfect excuse to just buy a jar and eat it with a spoon.  

    CS/Q: Nope, we're good.  This is a relatively stable chart, which is unusual for me!
    Edit to put chart in spoiler

  • @emeraldduchess you could totally observe world Nutella day a day late, lol. Yum!

    @kiki047 I secretly got McDonalds for lunch last week and didn’t tell MH and I felt so disgusting afterwards. However, I really enjoyed it at the time. Ha. Glad the monitoring appointment showed a good follie!
  • @kiki047 I didn't think I liked nutella either until I was introduced to nutella pudding on a cruise. GAMECHANGER.


  • @creamcheeseplease Glad you have the place to yourself. Hope you get that +OPK very soon.. c’mon ovaries!

    @kopp5988 Nice steady temps! Sounds like your day should fly by!

    @sorarose Sorry about the confusing cycle. I don’t always have a clear O either. Keep HIO!

    @emeraldduchess You can still celebrate Nutella day the next day  ;)

    @kiki047 That’s awesome your follie is so big already. I secretly get fast food sometimes too and always feel like crap after but it’s so good at the time! 

    Month/Cycle: 6/6

    CD: 5

    WAYDTGKU: Ava, FF, HIO/modified SMEP, CM, RLT, fertility yoga, decreased caffeine

    R/R: Rant: We got more snow last night. Rave: I have an excuse to stay inside and relax.. Planning to also do a bit of decluttering today. 

    CS/Q: nope

  • @creamcheeseplease I think I have McD's like 4-6 times a year, or sometimes I just go and get an ice cream cone and small fries, but this'll be twice in a week. I think I'd feel less guilty if I didn't lie about it haha. But yes, @misshelen86 it was definitely really worth it as I was stuffing my face in the car. 
    @sorarose nutella pudding?! Now that's another story. I think maybe it's the texture I don't like, cuz I dislike peanut butter for the same reason. So nutella in another form that isn't so... pasty (?) sounds appealing. Why is the food on cruises SO MUCH BETTER than IRL? :lol:  One of the best meals I've ever eaten was on our cruise. I still dream about it.

  • @kiki047 It was part cake, part mousse consistency. Seriously, I still dream about it.

  • @kiki047 and @sorarose what cruises have you been on with such good food?  The two I've been on the food wasn't really anything special (not bad).  Maybe I'm just a picky eater and didn't appreciate it. 

    @kiki047 the yarn I bought was for a specific project to give as a gift.  I usually buy yarn with a project in mind, but sometimes if I see something in a color that I think a friend would like, I'll buy it and THEN make a scarf or something out of it.  I am pretty much limited to scarves, blankets, simple hats and prayer shawls.  Nothing too elaborate but it keeps me occupied and is a great hobby when you want to give a special gift.

  • @emeraldduchess @kiki047 I haven't done Allure, but have been on 5 other Royal ships. Food is comparable on all of them. Something for everyone, in my experience. 


  • I've only ever cruised on Norwegian.  Once when I was a kid and then 10 years ago for a friend's wedding, so I didn't have a choice in destination or cruiseline.  I didn't love cruising but I think if I were to do it again, I'd cruise the British Isles or the Mediterranean.
