    @millpe I felt like I was hit by a truck yesterday which doesn’t usually happen until after AF starts so I was thinking maybe this was it. But now I just feel Monday tired and have AF like cramps. Holding out a lot of hope for you though that you just tested too early. But if you aren’t KU I hope AF shows today so that she’s gone by vaca!

    @bows22 I hope this is it for you too! I feel Monday tired as well. I started this new thing to set a standard wakeup time all week. Normally I am all over the place.But it just took me an hour to do a 20 minute workout... (i am starting this partially in preparation to consider temping next month, but probably will wait one more because of vaca)

  • @millpe A BFN at 10 DPO is definitely still early! I hope you get your BFP!!!

    @bows22 Sorry you're feeling pessimistic, but hopefully you're wrong!  <3 

    @puppylove8910 I thought about not temping for the rest of this cycle too in hopes it helps to quell the BSC, but I get up at 5am for my walks during the week anyway, so it's not that much more work.  I suppose we'll see...

    @puppylove8910 I’m hopeful for you this cycle too! I saw that you had O pain on the correct side so you get a real TWW this cycle! 

    @shamrocandroll yesterday I was like ugh why doesn’t shamroc mobile bump?!? Glad you are back and caught up! And that we are crossing paths in the TWW even if it’s only for 2 days

  • @kagesstarshroom Yeah, I think it's a mobile bug for me.  I can only get to my messages on my laptop, which I don't really like to use on weekends because then I end up checking work stuff, which I try not to do.  Blah.  Oh well.  I'm caught up now, I think.  I missed you all!  Also, that chart is gorgeous!  FX so hard for you on Wednesday!!!

    @shamrocandroll how @b_1029 showed you is how I do it too! I feel like it would be so easy for TB to have a number notification next to it like Inbox(2) if you have messages but instead I just click it every so often. 

    @kagesstarshroom that is a serious chart! My H doesn’t like to watch stranger things either for the same reason so I don’t think we even finished the first season 

    @b_1029 I don’t think I have come totally alive yet, maybe I need more caffeine. I had ovulation pain too so it looks like we are both relying on our b*tchy ovaries this cycle!

    shamrocandrollmillpe
  • @shamrocandroll We missed you too!

    @bows22 I feel like I can do scary/violent when it's clearly... not our reality? And DH is usually the same, but I just-- don't think he likes the violence, despite it being v. Out of This World? I hope he wants to do more episodes OR just tells me I can watch it on my own time. We finished everything else we were streaming, soooo. But It's ANW night tonight! 

    @b_1029 RE: Stranger Things The new season is good but scary! I don't love horror, but there are exceptions--and ST is just so Out of This World it's more like scary-at-times sci-fi. My BFF over text was like "K, ST is NOT scary," and I was like "SOMETIMES IT IS." Maybe this season is slightly more scary than others? I feel like it is? Someone else who has watched any of the episodes should weigh in though haha.  Thanks for your well wishes re: my, speaking of scary, scary good-looking chart. I've had so many good ones lately, but this is the best-looking by far. BIG OL SIGH. ::looks at watch:: Is it Wednesday yet?! Also, have you come alive yet? ALSO, I do believe you should get your CHs soon!

    I'm so so so out of the loop right now.

    Month/Cycle: 10/12

    CD/DPO: 26/8 (?)

    Timing: not the best

    Typical LP length: 14 days

    Testing:  I'm really not even sure I O'ed, so I'm gonna sit tight before testing.  

    R/R:  Just, MONDAY.  Ugh.  And everyone else at work seems to be in a Monday-mood too.  I usually like to make it in early on Monday morning, to get myself some alone-time to ease into working.  But I was running late and got bombarded with questions as soon as I walked in...no bueno.

    CS/Q:  So I was starting to believe that I O'ed but just missed by OPK spike.  But now, my temp this morning plummeted, and I'm thinking maybe I didn't O?  I did sleep in our guest bed overnight (I was hot, and an insomniac), and had a fan blowing on me all night, so I guess that could have affected.  Either way, my hopes for this cycle are not high.  



    b_1029lillywonderland
  • Welcome back! @shamrocandroll Happy to see you here too! And yes, I'll join you for Sunday's pee party!! I'll test at 9, 10, and 11 DPO this cycle. Haha! 

    Your chart is looking gorgeous @kagesstarshroom!! Hoping this is your cycle!

    Ugh, starting Monday off with little sleep is the worst. I hope you can make it through the day and get to bed early tonight @b_1029!

    Good luck testing tomorrow @shoogapoff !! Will @bows22 be joining you? FX ladies!!!

    Hmmm...@lcking82 Your chart confuses me too. It looks like you possibly O'd, but maybe you're having an exceptionally short LP. Has this ever happened to you before? Or maybe last night's fan caused this fluke of a temp! I think you'll have a better idea tomorrow as to what is going on.

  • @puppylove8910 We can also compromise and wait until Monday when I'm 11 DPO.  In all reality, I hate to pressure anyone into testing early and setting them up for disappointment because it's still too early!

    @shamrocandroll ; :D I love that you rage-cancelled.

    @shoogapoff GL tomorrow! I get "not feeling it," though, but I hope your instinct is wrong! I basically used this recipe, but fresh squeeze orange juice instead of lemon (only bc I didn't have any!) and topped it w/ the figs. I think I am going to add more figs to it when I have a slice tonight bc the orange and rosemary flavors are both so strong--DH didn't care though, he was like "stop talking about how you could make it better--it's delicious." 

    @puppylove8910 Thankssss. <3

    @lcking82 I'm w/ what puppylove said above--it REALLY could be the fan. I find that switching out AC temps and/or turning the AC on/off at certain points in the night affects my temps, for sure. But it could be a short LP? OR a serious implantation dip? 

    ETA: forgot link

    Month/Cycle:  2/2

    CD/DPO: 26/10 (I think) 

    Timing: I think we did well.

    Typical LP length: No clue. Just figuring my body out and watching for patterns. I do normally have long cycles 30-33 days

    Testing: bfn this morning. 10 day po I think. If no AF next week I'll test again but I think I'm out. 

    R/R: Eh. This is all stressful. I wish we were having more fun with it. I almost just want to take next months 'off' just to enjoy sex again. It feels a bit like a job when you 'know' its O time. 

    CS/Q: I suck at temping. I sleep restlessly and get up at different times to pee/etc and I often forget to temp due to waking late and having hectic mornings. I dont think my chart is not reliable because of that. Anyone have suggestions?


  • Ugh, anyone know how to edit my chart into a spoiler on mobile?

    @SimpleJane you click the paragraph button (next to the bold and italic buttons) and click spoiler. Then, click inside the gray box that pops and insert your imagine there 

    SimpleJane
  • @simplejane Use the non-open circles as, like, GOAL times for temping, and when you deviate from the time those are at, leave yourself a note. For example, one time I awoke with a start like an hour later than I usually temp, and temped right away, but my temp was higher than I knew it should bc 1) it was later and 2) my heart was racing bc I awoke w/ a start. If you at least have that data for yourself, then you know "okay this day is probably higher than it should be and this day is lower" etc for the days you temp. I definitely get up in the middle of the night to pee and don't always get three hours of sleep after that, but I find that affects my chart very little. I just kind of gave up on being perfect and now I leave myself notes when things are different than "usual"-- but I think having a baseline/goal for when you "usually" temp is important? As for adding a spoiler, I am pretty sure it's about the same on mobile as on a desktop? Or at least that has been my experience? Highlight and choose the little paragraph guy. Sorry for the BFN! Your plan going forward is good, though, and I think you're definitely in the TWW now, I can't say when I think you O'd though--CC18 maybe?

    @SimpleJane I do the same thing. I know it's not the most scientific way to do things but if I wake up really early or later than normal on accident, I use an online BBT converter and just make a note of it (hence why so many of my days have notes in them). I'm a horrible sleeper but that at least gives some sort of baseline

    ETA I also put the time I actually temped and what it was in my note. I wake up for the gym @ 5:30 most weekdays and I am just not willing to wake up just to get my temp that early on the weekends or my days off...oops

  • @kagesstarshroom that is helpful. This month I've been getting used to a new schedule with work and everything has been crazy so I hope going forward I'll be better at it. I've been eyeing CD 18 as possible O as well, which would put me earlier into TWW than if I had O on CD16 like I had thought. I'm just going to ride it out and wait for AF though. This whole TTC business is a mindf***k isnt it?
