Re: WTO Friday 4.5

  • Happy Friday!! :) Hopefully I can keep up more today, this place was a freaking party yesterday especially in the Randoms thread. 

    Month/Cycle: 8/8

    CD: 14

    WAYDTGKU: Clomid, Ovia app, prenatals, OPKs, preseed.

    R/R: Just feeling good and hopeful today! (I mean so far...it's 5:30am but off to a good start.) I think my FW starts today so FX we do a good job!

  • Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD: 7

    WAYDTGKU: Sex EOD and tracking CM

    R/R: So much for sleeping in on my work trip...I got home on Wednesday night and somehow I’m still exhausted. (It probably has something to do with the amount of alcohol we consumed. I’m getting too old for that!) I’m so busy at work so I need to get it together. Happy Friday! I have to work tomorrow but Fridays still feel like the end of something!

    CS/Q:

  • Good morning ladies!  Cheers to Friday! 

    @whitealbum29 good luck with timing!
    @bows22 hope things calm down a bit at work. 

    Month/Cycle: 9/8 (second cycle AL)

    CD: 8

    WAYDTGKU: Prenatal vitamins, Fertility Friend, temping, OPKs, Moontime tea, cutting down on alcohol, SMEP(ish)

    R/R: The heat was off in our building at work yesterday. I don't know if it's broken or if they are turning it on just for a little bit and then off for the rest of the day.  But there was definitely nothing coming out of the heater. Brrr. But it's Friday and the weekend is supposed to be beautiful and warm. 🌞

    CS/Q: Nice even temps, so yay I guess? 🤷‍♀️ I hate the long, anxious wait for O.

    R/R:  It looks like I got my temp shift today.  So I had EWCM on Friday, a positive(ish) OPK on Monday and a big temp shift between yesterday and today. I'm gonna guess O was yesterday, in the middle of my freaking out.

  • @b_1029 I know....I don’t drink that much anymore but during AF I feel like all bets are off. And then I think I can drink like I used to but I definitely can’t. Good luck at the RE today! 

    @emeraldduchess I am always warm at work so that actually sounds heavenly hahaha
    b_1029
  • thanks @brookert615! It sounds like you have a great weekend planned! Enjoy!
    brookert615
  • @emeraldduchess thanks friend! I’m just pacing around nervously/excitedly so I think I’m going to go to target beforehand to burn off energy and get some gifts for 2 birthday parties coming up haha

    @bows22 same, I don’t drink a lot until I get a BFN like 15 DPO and then just pretty much drink steadily till AF is gone. I had another margarita last night and was tipsy. It’s sad. 

    @brookert615 ugh I didn’t end up making it to class but I’m signed up for cyclebar later with my SIL! I’m going to have her cut off like 5-6 inches and get balayage- I haven’t gotten it done since October so it looks a bit rough. I’ll do a before/after or something haha. I hope you have fun at dinner tonight! I’m so sorry for this cycle :(

  • @whitealbum29 ah you early risers, so full of hope. lol hopefully the rest of your day continues to go well! GL with your FW ;);) 

    @bows22 sucks about having to work tomorrow, hopefully you get caught up on sleep soon!
    @emeraldduchess happy real Friday this time! Hope the heat is back on and your half day of teaching goes by quickly. 
    @B_1029 AHH! Today's the day!! GL at your appt!! Cyclebar sounds like fun, I'd need someone to go with though. I wonder if MF would sign up for something like that with me this summer. Andplusalso, pls take before/after photos of your hair. I love balayage (ha! autocorrect keeps trying to change that to 'jambalaya' :lol:  )
    @kerco925 lol well glad it looks like you O'd after all! 
    @brookert615 hi hi! Can I make a confession? I'm sorry your cycle is all kinds of crazy but we've always been on opposite O schedules so I'm rather enjoying having you around WTO at the same time as me. // all your friend/family time this weekend is giving me the warm fuzzies. Sounds like fun! Hope you enjoy your wkd. 
    @misshelen86 ugh sorry about the spotting. That's great about acu tho, and your new doc sounds like he's very proactive, FX this is just what you need TGKU!!

    R/R: Rant: So sleepy today, slept through 3 alarms, did not want to get out of bed. TGIF.
    Rave: It's Friday! And we have basically no plans this weekend other than Sunday dinner/MF's bowling finals (last week! YAY!). Now that AF is gone I'm finally feeling more like myself, maybe even a little teeny tiny bit hopeful. Oh, and the dog slept through our entire BD last night, this deserves its own rave, lol. 

    CS/Q: Still laughing that my long an-o cycles from last year are messing with FF's algorithms because she still predicts my FW to be 13 days long. My last 4 cycles have been predictably anywhere from 28-33 days long. None of that 44-59 day PCOS crap I was seeing before I got my hormones under control.

    @misshelen86 Sorry about CD! But that all sounds so cool about your experience during your acupuncture appointment! I'm going to have to look into that! There is definitely a lot of people that react to gluten. I have three autoimmune diseases and I can easily get a flare-up if I consume gluten.

    @kiki047 Enjoy your relaxing weekend! Glad you're feeling better and in higher spirits! That's too funny about Humphry! Understandable about FF, it's so confused with me right now  :D. And LOL! I was going to mention that we are finally back on the same thread!!! It's kind of silly because of my wonky cycles I'm like waving to all my friends as they come into the thread and then when they leave.

    @misshelen86 Sorry for CD1 =/ but sounds like the acupuncturist was a good choice! IDK if the part of It Starts With the Egg on Ceiliac is available on Google Books (I know some of it can be read there but not all of it? and it might be the 1st edition and from what I can tell the 2nd edition is... better...) but she talks about that, too, in that book if you wanted to add that to your reading, though it sounds like you already did yr hw!

    @kiki047 Glad you are feeling more like yourself. A little bit of hope is good, cautiously optimistic right? And FF... go home, you’re drunk!

    @kagesstarshroom Thanks for that info, it was available on Google Books! Very interesting and not something that had ever crossed my mind before. I might get that book in the future, but for now I think I need a break from the fertility books.

  • @kerco925 glad you did O after all!

    @misshelen86 sorry to see you back here, friend. On the plus side, we're almost CD buddies? I'm glad to hear your appointment went well, it sounds like he'll be very helpful for you! I totally agree about living your life, I mean yea maybe cut down on caffeine / alcohol but not entirely. I cut it totally out for a couple months and was miserable - plus, we don't know how long it's going to take! 

    @kiki047 yea I think the only reason I'm going is since my SIL is teaching ha. I have a friend that goes there too so I might try to meet her there next week. Thinking of a break from crossfit since my wrist is acting up again and I'm soooo unmotivated. YAY for no plans this weekend! Hope you and YF get to spend lots of quality time together...especially now that Humphrey seems to have chilled out a little (knock on wood).  13 day FW sounds fricken exhausting, I'm glad that's not a real thing for you anymore.

    @puppylove8910 thank you! Enjoy your massage!

    @emeraldduchess That's a pretty curve! Hope the heater gets fixed soon, or the weather is nice enough that even it doesn't get fixed as fast, it's nbd

    @b_1029 yay for RE appointment! Hopefully they will lay out some clear next steps!

    @kerco925 I have always wonder when to stop HIO during FW! Hope you get CH soon

    @brookert615 Sounds like a fun Friday and weekend! Hope you get a positive OPK soon!

    @kiki047 thanks! We don’t have plans this weekend either so hopefully I’ll feel rested after. Your predicted FW made me laugh too!

    @puppylove8910  I’m jealous of your massage!

    @b_1029 I’m glad you liked the RE but I’m sorry she benched you. Since the Zika hype has died down I don’t really think about it anymore but I guess it’s still out there. Better safe than sorry I suppose but I’d be frustrated too. 

    @littlesheep123 I hear you on the overwhelmed at work! Maybe working from home will help you cross things off of your list without adding more. That’s always my hope when I work from home. 

    misshelen86littlesheep123b_1029
  • @b_1029 Ugh, I feel your frustration about Zika and being benched. We had to wait for months after our honeymoon. It isn’t easy, but hopefully you’ll get instant RE success.
