    @mercury94 yes! let’s go to April together! And that’s annoying about your SIL. Hopefully you either get to join them for something fun after work OR you get some time alone at home to yourself. 
    mercury94
  • @ejoseph16 Yes. You come to April with us too. Glad your nephew had fun at the pool, but sorry about the sun burn. I can’t believe you kept him so long. I’m usually beat after a few hours with my 5-year-old nephew. Have fun at your get together tonight.

    CD: 14

    WAYDTGKU: Femara, Metformin, prenatal, Conceive Plus, HIO EOD, BW on CD21, temping/tracking with FF.

    R/R: It’s FRIDAY!!! ☺️ Caffeine (or lack thereof) headache is barely there today, so I call that a win!! 

    CS/Q: I was hoping for a temp rise this morning, but my body had other ideas. 

    @bows22 sorry about AF, but I’m loving your positivity!! I would love to be on the April BMB too!! 

    @mercury94 yay for good discussions and other stuff! 😉 That stinks you have to miss all the fun today, but hopefully your Friday will fly by and you have a great weekend! 

    @ejoseph16 glad you found a pool and your nephew had a good time...boo for the sunburn though!! I’m sure you are ready to get back to normalcy after a whole week...we’ve never had our nieces/nephews overnight (they all live 4 hours away), but I know I’m exhausted after being there with them for a weekend! Your teacher group sounds like a fun crowd! 

    @emeraldduchess oh, zucchini bread is so good! A rainy day sounds like a perfect baking day! Are you having any pain/cramping today or was it mostly during the US yesterday? 

    @ttcbabyodo I am awful and always look up my EDD after my cycle begins! Hopefully your duty tonight is quiet, relaxing & also productive!! I’m a fellow introvert, even though I can write books on here...I’m definitely not like that in person!! 

    jennifer_louisettcbabyodobows22
  • @bluetickgal YAY for no caffeine headaches! I am feeling good today, thank you!  I really only felt the cramping during the ultrasound and for maybe 15 minutes after.  I took an ibuprofen an hour before the procedure like they recommended, so I think that definitely helped!

    @ejoseph16 I would love to end up on the same BMB as you! My early morning buddy! I was lurking and it seems like you guys had a great time with your nephew. That’s so nice that you got to spend that time with him. 

    And duh @emeraldduchess of course you are coming too! Have you ever made zucchini brownies? I’ve never actually had one but heard they are good. 

    @ttcbabyodo enjoy your quiet time! Sometimes I go into the office really early and I LOVE being there in the dark quiet all alone haha. So that sounds wonderful to me. 

    @bluetickgal I’m glad the caffeine withdrawal is going well! Do you feel like you still have energy or do you miss it?

  • Ya’ll, it’s entirely too quiet in my house right now! Lol he was fun, but I’m glad to be able to do grad school work and take a nap. For real. 

    @emeraldduchess yes!!!! April 2020 club! Join us! Lol zucchini bread sounds so good! Jealous! 

    @ttcbabyodo enjoy that quiet time. I find that’s when I do my best thinking...

    @bluetickgal our nephew stays with us pretty frequently. But we told him this may be the last time. He wasn’t happy with that, but in all honesty, once we have kids of our own, it’s over. But yes, our teaching group is amazing! I’m so thankful I got this job. I interviewed for this position a year ago today, and they said they knew immediately that I was their new teacher. We just get along well. I’m glad your caffeine withdrawal is going away! 

    @bows22 heck yes early morning buddy! Lol April’s a good month. It gives me an extended summer vacation, so it’s a win. 

    @sevenn sometimes I get more than one patch of EWCM before O. Do you normally O this early? I would closely monitor and keep HIO. 

    @whitealbum29 yeah, our school likes our drinks. Lol. It’s hard on TTC, because whenever I say no to a drink they all think I’m KU. I’m glad your a big more relaxed this cycle... I’m feeling that zen as well. It’s that mentality of I’m going to relax and just let it happen. 
    emeraldduchessbluetickgalbows22NYTino24
  • @ejoseph16 that’s nice he’s been able to stay with you all so much, but I think that’s totally understandable it won’t always be able to happen! That’s so great you mesh so well with the people you work with!! Hopefully the new teachers from the other 2 schools will fit in nicely as well!

    @whitealbum29 - I was supposed to have a perfect 3 day weekend for the FW- so bummed!
    @ejoseph16 - definitely not. Last month FF said I ovulated CD 11, usually I am a CDs 13-15. I went on to have a 16 day LP (usu 14d) which makes me wonder if the O date was wrong. That was the first time it had happened in nearly 18 months of charting. Now it looks like it could be happening again. Idk what to make of it!

    WAYDTGKU: PNV, CM, HIO

    R/R: My cycle has been on the shorter side the last few months (25 days, 3 cycles in a row), so I feel like I have to be extra aware of CM changes to make sure we don't miss the window.  I ordered some opks this morning but I think I might O before they get delivered.  We'll see.

    @bows22 I am so sorry about CD 1 but you have such an amazing attitude about it!

    @ejoseph16. I am sorry about the sunburn. I burn if I am in the sun more than 10 minutes unfortunately so I have sadly gotten used to it. Wine bingo sounds so fun! 

    @ttcbabyodo Enjoy the quiet! I think we all need some zen time occasionally.

    @bluetickgal  I am not a coffee drinker but I have given up my tea and soda and it is rough! I am so glad you’re not getting headaches. 

    @sevenn That is extremely frustrating! 

     I am keeping everything crossed for April for everyone! 

    ETA my question was already answered

    Month/Cycle 3/3

    CD: 9

    WAYDTGKU: Temping, OPK, cm, prenatals,HIO

    R/R:  I think it takes being sick to realize how grateful you are to feel good. I’m still playing catch-up around the house after being sick but things are much better! I’m trying to relax about ovulation this cycle I can’t seem to get rid of my anxiety.

    CS/Q: nope.

  • @bluetickgal oh I think we are going to be good! At the meeting on Wednesday, the leadership group planned a flash mob to introduce our school theme for the year... margaritas may or may not have played a role, but we are super excited about it. Lol. 

    @sevenn super weird. I don’t even know what to do with that. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 

    @juliebeannn hi and welcome! 

    @shoogapoff this is the one time to be excited for CD1! Lol glad that happened! 

    @newmomtx06 I was so focused on getting sunscreen on him that I forgot myself. Oops! I don’t usually burn that easy, but here we are... I’m glad you’re feeling better and getting caught up!

    @sevenn ugh I’m sorry for the O confusion. That’s so frustrating. Like you do all this work to temp and then one or two questionable temps can completely derail your chart. -2 timing is still good though (I know you know this just reinforcing!)

    @whitealbum29 I hope your body starts gearing up to O soon! Maybe it was waiting so that your FW HIO falls over the weekend 🙂

    @juliebeannn welcome!

    @shoogapoff noooo I’m sorry for AF. I guess you will just have to come to the April BMB with us! And I’m glad everything went well at your RE appt. 

    @newmomtx06 glad you are feeling better!

  • @bows22 Right? Hoping neither of us have to know how it feels if the positive attitude doesn’t work. Seriously, I’ll get my BFP and then just save you a spot in April. Let’s just agree that’s the deal and keep hoping it will happen for as long as possible.

  • @juliebeannn Frustrating about the short cycles! Hopefully you can get some timing in!
    @shoogapoff - Sorry about CD1 but good that everything worked out! That's great that you're getting testing done and hopefully getting answers/info soon!
    @newmomtx06 - I'm sorry anxiety is taking over for you! We've all been there I'm sure. I hope you can find something fun to distract you a bit!!
    @bow22 - thank you!

  • @juliebeannn hope your OPK’s come in time this cycle, but hopefully you can have your FW covered even if not. Are you temping to confirm after you O? 

    @shoogapoff sorry for CD1, but that’s definitely good timing for the RE! That’s great you have all that testing scheduled! We have our first RE appointment next month and I’m afraid I’ll be mid-cycle and will have to wait even longer before testing can begin.

    @newmomtx06 yeah, I think any time you give up something you have every day, it’s going to be difficult, but I think it’ll be worth it! Glad you are feeling better, but that stinks you have so much to catch up on! Hopefully relaxing about O will happen, I know it’s difficult! 

    @mercury94 I really thought it was yesterday, but the chart doesn’t lie! Haha. Hopefully you are right and it is today! 

    @ejoseph16 that’s great! Haha, I don’t think I’d be cool enough to be a teacher at your school!!

    Welcome back @juliebeannn! I’ve learned that things can change so much PP. My cycles are also shorter, but now more “average” length instead of longer. Just one time I ovulated on CD15, so now I always try to start earlier. 
    @shoogapoff Sorry for CD1, but glad you were able to jump right into testing. 
    @newmomtx06 Get some BD in. That helps my anxiety sometimes! But seriously, see if any exercise helps. I have it too, sometimes pretty bad. I’m here if you need to talk.
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*
