Re: TWW Monday 8/12

  • Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 24/7

    Timing: -2 only (traveled for work during O)

    Typical LP length: unknown 

    Testing: maybe towards the end of the week?

    R/R: I'm finally feeling better. I wasn't around all last week because of traveling for work and being sick! I'm ready to feel like myself this week and enjoy some slightly cooler weather. 

    CS/Q:  I *think* I Oe'd last Monday because of positive OPK, temp drop, and temp rise (FF confirmed)... but I was traveling over 3 timezones, and also got sick (sinus infection), so I'm side-eyeing most of my temps. I ended up getting put on antibiotics (Amoxicillin) for the sinus infection. The PA seemed fairly "meh" when I asked if it would be a problem while TTC, but wondering if I should give a call to my OB. Anyone else been on antibiotics during your TWW?

  • Month/Cycle: 11/11

    CD/DPO: 25/9

    Timing: Excellent

    Typical LP length: 12-14

    Testing: Nope, holding firm

    R/R: Happy Monday!!! I don't want to make anyone jealous of my weekend, but I spent pretty much all of yesterday digging old caulk out from around my tub to clean it and re-caulk it last night. Friday my SiL and I hung out and watched true crime documentaries while our husbands drank white claws and played poker (and we were supposed to be decorating for *TW* my nephew's bday party the next day *end TW* ) Saturday we went to the party, then went out for our anniversary dinner and had ice cream afterwards. We also drove by our first house and judged the new owners for their outdoor maintenance/decor. All in all, a pretty solid weekend. 

    The crazy should be starting any time now though. I don't feel any different, so SS has been at a minimum so far thankfully. AF should be making her appearance next weekend, just have to keep it together until then. 

    CS/Q: Nope, got a pleasantly higher temp than normal this morning, then MH mentioned that my sleep quality did not look great (restless, heavy breathing, etc.) so I'm betting that's responsible. Might stop temping, or might just admit that seeing the temp drop as a warning that AF is coming kind of does prepare me.

  • @mamaqdubu Sorry about the sinus infection! Hopefully the antibiotics work quickly! I don't have any experience taking them during TWW, but a quick search informs me Amoxicillin is Class B so generally considered "ok" for pregnancy. A sinus infection lingering on is NO fun, so I would absolutely take them. 

    @b_1029 Ha thanks! We watched the Who Killed Garrett Phillips documentary on HBO, which was excellent. I'm glad the wedding was fun!!!! FX your carbon monoxide/washer/dryer stuff is resolved today!!! I would also have Target gcs burning a hole in my pocket, so I feel your pain!

  • @b_1029 What time did they end up showing up? Those “windows” are the worst and I always have them show up outside of when they’re supposed to come. 

    @mvt2003 I stopped temping. I needed the mental break. I was staring at my chart waiting for the temps to tell me something like a lunatic. It’s been really nice. 

    @mamaqdubu I’m willing to bet you’ll be fine on the antibiotics but for peace of mind a call to the OB nurse line won’t hurt. 

    Month/Cycle: 3/3 AL 

    CD/DPO: 20/7 

    Timing: -1, O 

    Typical LP length: 10-13 

    Testing: Don’t think I will unless AF still not here in a week 

    R/R: Everything irritated me yesterday. And when I realized it was likely PMS it made me even more upset. It was a bad cycle and I feel bad for my poor husband that took the brunt of it. 

    CS/Q: Not much to see. I haven’t temped the last two days because I’ve been so down about the cycle and needed the break. 

  • @tyrion_ so many creepy internet hugs! I hate realizing I’m cranky bc AF is about to make her appearance. Totally get the mental break thing, I spent most of the day today reminding myself that there’s no magical way to know if I’m KU or not this cycle on 9 DPO despite me trying to read tea leaves with BBT and CM.

  • @b_1029 days post transfer will typically have the age of the embryo. Like 3dp5dt for 3 days post 5 day transfer. So if you say 12dpt I'm sure people understand you did the trigger with TI, not an embryo transfer.
