    WAYDTGKU: BBT, OPKs, tracking CM

    R/R: My only rant is that it is Monday already! Lots of raves. We had a great weekend. We went to the drive in on Saturday and saw the lion king. I know there is a lot of hate about it online but I loved it! I want to try to get some morning BD in this cycle but we get up so early already. DH is off today so we took advantage since we had extra time. Probably too early in my cycle to even count but it still makes me feel like we are doing something different! 

    CS/Q: That Sunday temp is so low. I’ve never had a temp that low.

  • @bows22 glad you had a good weekend! I need to see The Lion King... everyone I talked to about it said it was great, but it seems all the negative is online. So I’m glad to hear another positive review! 

    Month/Cycle: 7/5/3 AL

    CD: 18

    WAYDTGKU: BBT, OPK, CM, FF, PNV, folic acid, HIO EOD

    R/R: With the extreme heat last week, FF gave me CH on Wednesday. So I moved to TWW only to get a peak reading and +OPK yesterday 🤦🏼‍♀️ So it’s O day today! Lol, but I’ll wait for CH to move over. 

    Kind of crabby this morning! I started weight watchers last week to lose about 25 pounds, and I weighed myself this morning and I’ve gained a half a pound! What?! I’m so mad! Ugh! 

    CS/Q: temp drop told me O day is today and wasn’t yesterday. Let’s keep this good timing train going! April 2020 or bust!

    @ejoseph16 I’m so glad for the O fake out so that you could get better timing! That would make me really mad about the weight gain too. Makes no sense! But I’m sure you will start to see results soon. And yes definitely see The Lion King. I can kind of see where the critics are coming from after reading their reviews but I didn’t think of any of that while I was watching it, it was just a really enjoyable movie. 
  • @b_1029 sorry about AF 😩 hope your move is a good one today! Negative coworkers are the worst... we are moving classrooms this year and I’m finally getting away from my negative nelly. Instead of being my neighbor she’ll be 4 doors down. Thank goodness!

    @b_1029 I’m sorry about AF! April is going to be where it’s at! Good luck with the move! Not a shocker about your coworker. Full time WFH doesn’t even sound appealing to me, but I guess if you don’t actually do work it would be

  • @bows22 I want to see Toy Story 4 and Lion King so bad but we never go to the movies.  We don't have a good theater around here.  Glad you had a great weekend!

    @ejoseph16 ; So sorry about the slight gain, but I always found after a bad week on WW, I would usually have a really good week the next.  I hope it was just some water retention.  Was it super hot where you are?

    @b_1029 Big hugs, friend.  I'm so sorry about AF, but I hope this little bit of help is all you need to do the trick!

  • @bows22 glad you had such a great weekend! I'm glad Lion King was good. I probably won't see it in theaters. I'm still on Lion King over-load from directing the Broadway Junior version at school a few years ago. It'll still be a while before I can listen to "Hakuna Matata" again! ;) Nice job with the morning HIO too. ;)

    @Kathryn0903 I'm sorry about the fight with your parents. I hope you can resolve it soon!

    @shamrocandroll WTF to your refrigerator?! Glad that you love your new coffee maker, though! There's a silver lining. Jealous of your weekend at the lake!  My dream is to buy a home on a lake someday. Even if I never swim in it, just to sit on the back porch and look out at the water...heaven! 

    @b_1029 so sorry about AF. :(  All the hugs to you and good luck with the letrozole. April BMB or Bust! <3 

    @ejoseph16 Happy O Day! Great job with timing.  I had a feeling FF was wrong (it did the same thing to me)! I hope the KU Fairy visits us all and we flood the April 2020 board!

  • @emeraldduchess Holy crap... you HIO in this heat wave with NO AC!?  You da real MVP!  MH and I DTD last night (non-FW so we could enjoy it a bit before the crazy kicks in) and I STILL complained about being hot, haha.  Yes, the house on a lake was a big time dream of mine.   We told our realtor that was our pipe dream and he made it happen!  I don't ever want to move again until we're old and can't handle the winters anymore.  And by then, I'm really hoping we can maybe own my parents' condo across the lake (they copied us and bought on the same lake after us) so we can have a place to spend the summer.

  • @shamrocandroll I grew up in a small coastal town and a lot of people think it's weird that I'd rather live near a lake than the ocean. I think in my case familiarity breeds contempt?  I'm really not a big beach person (ocean-wise) and I've seen lots of homes destroyed in coastal storms. Hard pass on the ocean front property from me. I like that live within 20 minutes of the ocean, but I don't want to live right next to it.

  • @emeraldduchess I'm with you!  I hate the ocean beach.  I don't like swimming in salt water and then the feeling of having sand and salt stuck to my skin after.  Plus I'm very fair skinned, so I don't do sunbathing.  I love swimming in a good, clear lake, though!  And no worrying about storms or sharks or jellyfish or crabs or any of that!  I do love the sound of the ocean, though.

  • @shamrocandroll sorry for all the bad luck this weekend! Hoping this week brings bigger and better things! Yes, it was about 110 with the heat index, so it was horrible. I’m hoping that played a role. I had a good breakfast, went for a run, and showered it off. Lol

    @Kathryn0903 sorry about your fight with your parents. I’ll be moving over to TWW in the next few days as well... see you there! 

    @emeraldduchess oh, FF... those dotted crosshairs! Mine disappeared literally the next day. 🤣😂 I showed MH the peak reading on my expensive OPK, and he’s been all about HIO! Hahaha! This is the first month he has been excited about knowing where I am in my cycle. I’ll take it! Onward to April 2020! (I must say, I’m impressed at how positive we have all stayed, lol)

    @bows22 Ooooh the drive-in! That needs to go on my summer bucket list!!! We keep saying we should do it, but then it's an hour away and we're old people who go to bed at 10pm so I guess we'll see. :D 

    @ejoseph16 So happy YH is feeling more participatory!!! Also, boo on the .5 gain, BUT that could be something to do with the heat, water consumption etc. too! I'm basically a professional WW member, happy to chat about it at any time. 

    @b_1029 so so sorry to see you here too! Sending you my thoughts! 

    @shamrocandroll are you freaking kidding about the fridge??? Good grief!!! This retrograde needs to GTFO now. Also, what thermometer did you get? I have a Femometer because I am completely incapable of reading a BBT thermometer at 6am in the dark with no glasses on. :D 

    @Kathryn0903 sorry about this weekend, FX for you and your + opk!

    @emeraldduchess :D at "FF take a damn seat I know my body" omg dying! Also, what did you get at the craft store? I need to live vicariously right now because I have to actually finish a few projects before I can move on to anything else!

    My cousin's baby shower is in a few weeks and I need to make her at least one more thing. Apparently one baby blanket isn't  enough? Ha.
    @inthewoods23 HIO in a heatwave is not recommended. But you do what you gotta do! Please post pics of your patio furniture on that beautiful new deck!

    @whitealbum29 sounds like you had a great weekend. Hope you get some clarity about where you are in your cycle soon!

    @emeraldduchess Squeee I love fresh yarn!!!!!! 

    TW
    I'm on sleeve island for my friend's baby sweater. I'm making the 3 month size and it's sock yarn and I dropped stitches 3 freaking times on the cuff of the first sleeve yesterday, THEN I had to frog the bind-off because it wasn't stretchy enough. I'm taking a sleeve break today and working on a square for my aran knit blanket instead. 
    What blanket pattern are you making? Honestly, you can never have enough blankets!!!

    @mvt2003 the only sweaters I will make are straight-up rectangles pieced together! I hate working with sock yarn. It's like knitting with spaghetti! I am going to make a simple garter stitch blanket with ombre stripes (white, blue, gray). Super easy, super quick. My cousin lives in California but everyone needs at least one thick, squishy blanket!
    ETA: Don't forget to post in the craft thread when you finish! Or show us pictures of it in progress.

    @b_1029 I have done Clomid the last two cycles. I still did OPKs and temping. Even if I was being monitored as closely as you would for an IUI cycle, I’d probably temp out of habit at this point.

    Ha @emeraldduchess I hate sewing things together! So I exclusively make top-down raglans :D I took a pic of 2 of the aran squares this morning, will post that in a few in the crafting thread! 

    And I agree everyone needs a squishy blanket! I'm loving stripes lately too, they're very popular right now!

    I'm a sucker for sock yarn colorways and since I'm doing very small sizes it works out lol.

    @shamrocandroll I am so glad you love your coffee maker! At least you had 1 thing go right with all of this appliance drama. I hope the fridge repair people are able to get there soon.

    @emeraldduchess I don’t blame you for wanting to take a break from the lion king! And I agree that I am very impressed that you made HIO happen in the heat with no AC! 

    @mvt2003 oh no ☹️ I am so sorry to see you back here. As far as the drive in, ours is about 30 minutes away but we have been leaving after the first movie. So Saturday night we were home by midnight. Still not super early but not too bad!

  • @bows22 The #1 reason I'm so upset about my fridge being broken again is the spare fridge only has one ice cube tray, so it takes me like 2 days to make enough ice to brew a carafe of cold brew in my fancy new coffee maker!  And I refuse to buy more ice cube trays because I HAVE AN ICE MAKER, DAMMIT!  :lol:

    @ejoseph16 sorry about the half pound! Hoping its water retention or extra heavy clothes! 

    @b_1029 bad coworkers are the worst, im glad theyre moving!

    @shamrocandroll Man! I want a ninja coffee bar!!! I hope you get your fridge fixed fast, so you can get back to making more cold brew! ;) Also, im amazed that anyone would prefer a lake over the beach! We live near 5-6 lakes, so i guess you just want what youre not used to!

    @Kathryn0903 Im sorry about the argument with your folks. I hope everything is okay now!

    @emeraldduchess sounds like that was a particularly steamy session! lol 

    @mvt2003 sorry about no BFP..

    @whitealbum29 Hoping you get some clarity with O!

  • @photographerwife I've been coveting one for a while, and I managed to get it down about $100 with Kohl's coupons, so I went for it.  :)  Also, I think it really depends on the lake.  I grew up in the MA suburbs where you really wouldn't want to swim in any of the lakes.  But here in NH they're so clear and surrounded by mountains and just beautiful!  For the 3ish months out of the year that you can swim in them, anyway.  :lol:
