  • Temping Questions ahead:

    Lurking from TWW but definitely not pregnant this cycle, so I'll be back here in a day or so. I'm going to temp next cycle, and I had a couple of quick questions:

    1. Do you temp during your period or wait til the bleeding stops to start?

    2. If you wake up a zillion times to pee at night, at what point do you temp? Like, say my typical wake up for the day is 5am, but I wake up at 3am to pee, do I temp at 3 or wait til 5? What if I wake up at 4 to pee? Pee is a problem, folks lol.

    1. I continuously temped so I did temp during my period, but that's not totally necessary to do.

    2. If 3am is the first time you wake up in the night, temp before you get up to pee. There are sites you can go to that can adjust the temperature you got at 3am to estimate what it would be if you had not woken up and temped at 5am instead. Or don't try the adjustment and leave it as an open circle in FF. Up to you.

    Month/Cycle: 13

    CD: 9

    WAYDTGKU: On my third clomid/IUI cycle. The doctor upped my dose of Clomid, so we'll see if my follicles respond better then the last two cycles. I have my CD12 ultrasound and bloodwork on Monday. 

    R/R: I'm going to my first Red Sox game tomorrow and staying the night at a really fancy hotel in Boston (anniversary gift from the hubs). I was excited until my husband told me he might have to work (he's a lineman) and won't be able to go... We argued for like an hour last night and he ended up calling out sick today so that he can't get forced. If he worked today then they could force him to stay (they're not allowed to say no) so the only way to solve the issue was him calling out sick today. Might be the clomid-crazies talking, but I'm still annoyed that him skipping tomorrow to work was even an option in his mind. 

    CS/Q: nope

  • Month/Cycle: 11/9 (AL)

    CD: 33

    WAYDTGKU: preseed, HIO/EOD, CM, OPK, PNV, Letrozole and next cycle we do the trigger and IUI

    R/R: I'm tired! BUT - we have a great weekend coming up! We are going out tonight with some friends and tomorrow we are heading into Philly to celebrate our first anniversary!! I'm so looking forward to a weekend of time with MH, especially since our schedules are way overlapping all next week.

    CS/Q: 

    @inthewoods23 how many days are you off for?!

    @feather_heather Ummmm... I would have acted the same exact way!! Like, WTF?! It never should have been an option, especially since this was something HE planned for both of you.  I hope you guys have a great time!

    @ziggymama06 have an AMAZING time this weekend!!

    @konoha I hope your first day back goes quickly!

  • @inthewoods23 how much time are you taking off after your FET? 

    @saladflambe 1. I typically don't temp while I have AF during the weekend so I dont have to wake up early. It's really personal preference though, but i dont think its necessary since i still have time to set a baseline after AF, before O. 

    2. Not sure the "correct" way, but I try to always temp at or close to my same time even if I was up in the middle of the night before that, since my middle of the night isnt consistent or usual. It can make rockier temps, but I can still pinpoint O. I think some of it is trial and error though on what works for you. 

    @feather_heather I'm glad he worked it out so he didnt have to work, but I can see why you would be annoyed at him. Did he expect you to just go alone or also cancel your plans? 

    Month/Cycle: 8/6/4 AL

    CD: 3

    WAYDTGKU: CM, OPKs, BBT, PNV, CoQ10, vitamin D, drinking more water 

    R/R: it's my Friday off! We have lots we need to get done (stain out basement doors and clean the garage being the main ones). Its 10AM and so far we've done nothing... oops. Good thing we have all weekend. 

    CS/Q:  AF still going strong, so no temping yet

  • Thanks @millpe & @inthewoods23 for the input. I'll probably do something like - if I wake at 3am, not temp, because I've got a solid 2 hours of sleep left before I wake up, but if I wake at 4am, temp an hour early or whatever. Stupid sleep issues. And pee. Stupid pee  :D

  • @kpearse99 - Yeah and then he texts me today complaining about all the money he's missing by not working this weekend  >:) ... Happy Anniversary to you!

    @millpe - This has happened before and I've had to find someone to go to a show or concert with at the very last minute (like 2 hours before a show). So I think he expected me to find someone - like yes, I'd like to spend a romantic evening at a fancy hotel with my mother?
    millpeBusinessWife
  • @inthewoods23 I knew that about your FET on Tuesday... ugh! Sorry!! I'd love to know what songs are on your playlist!

    @millpe ehhhh you needed the morning off to work up your energy for all you have to do! ;)

    @feather_heather I mean.... did he expect you to celebrate your anniversary ALONE??

    Month/Cycle: 16/11/1 AL#2 

    CD: 33

    WAYDTGTKU: Benched...SHG next cycle and will restart Letrozole & add in progesterone. 

    R/R: It’s halfway through Friday, which means the weekend is almost here!! My parents are coming up to stay with us...we don’t really have anything planned, but it’ll be nice having them visit! They haven’t seen our house since we were totally finished with the painting, so that’ll be nice for them to see! 

    CS/Q: None.

    @inthewoods23 hope your last day of work before a few relaxing/zen days goes well! 4 days!!! ☺️☺️☺️

    @konoha hope your first day back goes well/quickly!! I feel ya on the getting back into routine...even if that routine includes work! 

    @ziggymama06 sounds like you have a very busy day off!! Hope you can get it all done and have some time to relax before the rehearsal! Hope you have a great time at the wedding!! I’m sure that will be beautiful being at the beach! 

    @feather_heather hope the increased Clomid does the trick for you, fingers crossed for good results on Monday!! Happy Anniversary!! That stinks you and DH fought about his work, but that’s good you will be able to enjoy the weekend together!!

    @kpearse99 Happy Anniversary to you too!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating! 

    @millpe sounds like a very busy weekend...you definitely deserve a slow start this morning!! Hope you get all your stuff done and still have some time to relax too!

  • @kpearse99 thanks!! We probably see them every 4-6 weeks. We either go there or they come here, but it seems like we’ve gone there for things most recently. We are going camping with the whole family in a couple weeks though, so that’ll be fun!

  • @bluetickgal Its been a slow start this afternoon too, but also feels needed. I did get another door stained so just waiting for it to dry enough for second coat and I will move on to polyurethane for all of them!! If I could even get just the bathroom door finished and installed this weekend it would be a success.
