  • Month/Cycle: 4/2

    CD/DPO: 36/8

    Timing: -2,-1,0

    Typical LP length: unknown 

    Testing: was gonna test today but I’m feeling pms’sy so I’m holding out 

    R/R: unfortunately my boobs started hurting yesterday and I feel cranky today so I’m pretty sure this isn’t our month. A little sad today I had pretty high hopes for this month.

    CS/Q:none yet 

    @gingermama29: glad to see you over here now! 


    @kpearse99: yay less than a week and I’m no temping expert but I believe implantation causes a dip too

  • @beckylookatherbump oh!! See I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to temping  :D I just did a bunch of googling though, so thank you!! I'm sorry you're feeling pms'sy but it's 8dpo for you so it's still early, my dpo buddy!

  • @kpearse99 enjoy your dinner date night with YH tonight! I agree with being ready for the weekend!

    @beckylookatherbump thanks! I hope sore boobs is just a symptom of being KU for your and AF stays away! 
    kpearse99
  • @choas-and-coffee well then, let's hope that temp goes back up tomorrow! (Although I am really refraining from getting my hopes up!)  Wait wait wait - they charge you to POAS?!?! Is that a real thing?? 

    I know exactly what it feels like to have those long cycles. You are NOT alone in the "feeling like it takes forever" waiting game. If AF is surely on her way for you, then I hope she arrives ASAP so you can end this long cycle and finally be able to move onto the next cycle. <3

  • @kpearse99 they do! The only reason I know this is because before I got married, I was on a few different kinds of bc trying to regulate my cycle, and didn’t get a period at all for a couple of months. I had peed on a billion sticks at home already so was confident it was something else but my doctor said it was policy and they’d have to rule out a pregnancy before doing any other testing. So I had to go in the bathroom and POAS...and got a $75 bill a few weeks later! 
  • @chaos-and-coffee ; man, 75$ to POAS?? I'm Canadian, is that a typical cost? 
  • @chaos-and-coffee that's insane!!! @chelsea-marie2 I live in the states and I have never been charged for that before... so I'm not sure if it's typical or not.

  • @chaos-and-coffee ugh I know the frustration of long cycles oh too well. Sorry you're dealing with them. That bill for POAS is ridiculous! Glad you were able to talk them out of it.

    @gingermama29 I’m not convinced you ovulated yet. Your chart seems backwards! I’d keep HIO.
    @kpearse Often a temp drop like that could mean AF is coming. If it rebounds tomorrow, it could be an implantation dip!
    @chaos-and-coffee Are you testing after work?!

    Month/Cycle: 10/10

     CD/DPO: 13/1

    Timing: -3, -1, O (the last two are IUI and Clomid made me ovulate extremely early. Our timing is usually even better, but i had a big fever yesterday and we left it at that. I’ll take it.)

    Typical LP length: eh, all over the place

    Testing: progesterone test on 10/14, beta 10/21

     R/R: I hate when sickness messes up my chart temps!!

     CS/Q: probably have the flu, so the extreme spike isn’t so accurate
    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*

  • Morning Everyone!!

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD/DPO: 19/10

    Timing: -2, -1, 0

    Typical LP Length: 14 days I think

    Testing: Nope. WFAF

    R/R: Ugh.. I feel blah today and I’m just sooo tired. The past few days all I want to do is sleep all day. I have zero energy today and have no desire to do anything whatsoever ☹️ I don’t know if it’s our weather that is making me tired or the fact that I have been fighting a little cold for a bit. I really want to go back to bed 😴. I hope this day doesn’t drag. 

    CS/Q: none

    @kpearse99 I hope you have a good dinner date with your hubby. Sounds nice.

    @chaos-and-coffee sorry your tired and grumpy. I hope AF comes soon for you so you can move forward from this long cycle. $75 bucks to POAS? Holy crap. Ya no thanks. 😳 

    @beckylookatherbump sorry your boobs hurt and are feeling cranky. Seems like everyone is grumpy/cranky today lol. Also, sorry your feeling sad this cycle and had high hopes. Hugs ❤️ 

    @gingermama29 man going to bed at 8:30 sounds nice lol. that’s what I need to do tonight haha. I hit like 9pm lately and I’m already tired and ready for bed. 😆

    @chelsea-marie2 I’m Canadian too. 👍 

  • @NYTino24 I haven’t decided yet 🙈 every morning I talk myself out of it.

  • @mindyb2019 fx that the tiredness is a good sign!! 
  • @kpearse99 maybe I am KU. Who knows. Let’s hope 😀 

    @chaos-and-coffee thanks. I sure hope me being tired is a good sign. I guess I’ll find out. 
    kpearse99krystrist2014
  • @chaos-and-coffee that’s insane I only get charged like $10. 
    @NYTino24 mine happened that way last time. I was like wow I had a huge temp increase after O. Ended up having a 103 fever lol. 
    @kpearse99: I hope so but feeling a little defeated today. Took at test this am and was negative so confirmed my feelings. I know it’s still early though. Fingers crossed for you to have better luck! 
    NYTino24krystrist2014
  • @NYTino24 oh no, I hope you don't have the flu!

    @mindyb2019 I hope the exhaustion is because you're KU!

  • @whitealbum29 holy crap, I am glad that long headache is finally gone!! Yikes!! I surely hope that dream is a good omen!!

  • Month/Cycle: 4/3

    CD/DPO: 29/14

    Timing: SMEP 

    Typical LP length: 12 days 

    Testing: Bfn Sunday. 

    R/R: Still trucking along here. I took another test yesterday after stalking the June 2020 board, impulsively. And still not KU. Ha. I’m not ashamed to admit it to you ladies. Temp dropped today though almost to cover line so I’m expecting af anytime today or tonight. The weather has been glorious here the past couple of days; the highs have been the low 70s, and I’m really just hoping more cool weather is on the way. I’m enjoying not sweating to death while outside. 

    CS/Q: either my LP phase length is longer,  my crosshairs aren’t accurate. I don’t know. 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • @gingermama29 it’s always nice going to bed early, but I’m the same. I normally can’t stay asleep or wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep. Hopefully you get some clarity with your chart soon!

    @kpearsr99 I hope you have a good date! I wouldn’t assume it was af unless it stays low, especially since your only 8dpo. Maybe your body is just realizing it isn’t supposed to be so hot! 😂 but I hope that it’s an implantation dip! 

    @beckylookatherbump I hope your boobs are a fluke. Or it’s a sign that your KU! 

    @chaos-and-coffee I’m glad you were able to talk her out of it! That’s insane that it costs that much! But healthcare is so aggravating. I hope you get clarity soon!

    @nytino24 I hope you feel better soon! That’s aggravating! Especially after IUI. 

    @mondyb2019 sorry you’re feeling tired. I hope that’s a good sign for you!

  • @photographerwife I regularly stalk the June board 🤷🏼‍♀️🙈
    photographerwifekrystrist2014
  • @photographerwife I thought it was a little too early for the temp to drop down at 8 dpiui but we shall see, I guess! I love that you're not ashamed to tell us you tested again  :D We don't really hold much back though, do we?! I went and stalked the June board just now after you mentioned it... I'm not ashamed!
