Re: TWW Thursday 11/7

  • Month/Cycle: 10/8

    CD/DPO: 16/2

    Timing: great! -3, -1, O

    Typical LP length: 12ish

    Testing: probably not

    R/R: I have a lot to get done today at work so I need to be productive. I'm pretty overwhelmed with all the travel and days out of the office at the end of the year, combined with having so much that needs to happen before year end. In happier news, I am going to a wine tasting tonight with a friend I havent seen for awhile!

  • Month/Cycle: 5/3adt nights

    CD/DPO: 23/4

    Timing: -1,0,+1

    Typical LP length: 14

    Testing: probably on 10 dpo

    R/R: my temp was down some today. I should really stop temping after I confirm O because then I stress over every little dip. Like it’s only 4 dpo a dip doesn’t mean I’m out this month it means that I woke up 5 times last night and slept like crap and slept with a sheet instead of my normal comforter. 

    CS/Q: nope 
    @millpe I never got wine tasting where you are supposed to spot the wine out. I’m like no you gave me this I’m drinking it thanks.

  • @feather_heather I am so freaking excited for you!!!!!! I have a strong feeling a lot of us will get to graduate to our BMB soooooon! Oh please let that feeling be true!!! Are you going to test before the beta? As far as sleeping goes, I tend to wake up a few times a night but I can usually go right back to sleep after a few minutes. The last two nights have been rough, so I'm hoping it's a good sign!!

    @beckylookatherbump I stopped temping for that same reason! I started losing sleep over it. Felt like it was not worth it, for me anyway.

  • @kpearse99 - I may test Friday morning... I don't really want to find out if I am or not while I'm at work over the phone, and then have to just text my husband. Also I feel like either way I'm probably going to be emotional, and I don't want to cry at work 
    kpearse99millpe
  • @feather_heather I hear ya! I took Monday off for that reason haha I'm on the fence now about if I'll test before Monday or not... I want to but I also don't want to. I'm just so damn scared of the result!!

  • @keikilove is it logical for me to see/know that your first beta is when you are 13dpiui, instead of 14dpiui like when mine are scheduled, so that means I could/should totally test on Sunday? haha

  • Month/Cycle: TTC actively for 3 long cycles 

    CD/DPO: 25/4

    Timing: perfect 

    Typical LP length: varies, was only 10 days last month :(

    Testing: going to try my best to hold off until the 15th 

    R/R: 4DPO and my temp spiked 0.4 again and I’m all hopeful, not than I’m pregnancy already I know it’s too early but that my body is making enough progesterone to support a pregnancy this cycle!! I can’t seem to stop over analyzing everything during every TWW so this board has actually been very helpful to just talk about it with someone other than DH! Thanks gals!  

    CS/Q: (guilty I still don’t know what this means) 

    sending good vibes to every these next few weeks and hoping we will all be blessed with new life!

    @millpe enjoy that wine tasting! Who knows maybe there will be no more wine allowed very soon! 

    @kpearse99 Try to wait for your beta! It’s so early tons of home pregnancy tests won’t pick up what a beta will and why disappoint yourself before the real test in hopes you may get a faint line! It’s coming very soon!

    @beckylookatherbump Any sleep disturbance can alter your temp too! Record for stats and don’t look at ur chart again! 

    @featherheather hoping for your positive beta! Keep us posted!

  • @dawn_tay It's so hard to not over think everything little thing your see or feel during the TWW - especially that last week of the waiting!  The CS/Q: means that you can post your tracking chart here for people to see/analyze or you can ask any questions here you might have!

    @dawn_tay Yes, it’s awesome to have friends here to nitpick apart every little detail of this crazy TTC adventure! I’m guilty of all the things you mention. :) CS/Q stands for Chart Stalk/Questions. You can use it in whatever way works best for you. 

    @kpearse99 Hahahahahaaaa!😄 I love that you posted that about testing early. I think it’s totally normal to think things like that about testing....because I’m a test-aholic of course! AFM, my doctor was having me test at 12 & 14 dpo but that was proving problematic w low/slow results. So she’s switched it up to avoid dragging on the disappointment, I think. In the past I have kept busy testing the initial trigger shot out of my system & twice it has faded out completely by Day 9, but this time I’m giving myself hCG follow-up shots every 3 days so there’s no way to actually test it out. Those final beta results seem sooo far away! 
    kpearse99
  • @kpearse99 I know! I feel like I've been super sporadic with posting because life is so crazy currently, but I'm always lurking ;) good job on holding out, even though there is no way I could! I have such a good feeling for you.  

    @beckylookatherbump Definitely not spitting the wine out tonight 😂

    @feather_heather I'm so happy they transferred the perfect embaby!! Maybe you should save that rose for celebration when you find out you are KU 😉

    @keikilove The thing about work travel is it always seems to happen the most inconvenient times!! Its definitely affecting your temps. I'm glad you are keeping up with the meditation and positive vibes. How long do you continue the hCG shots? 

    @dawn_tay Good reasoning behind the positive thoughts about the temp spike. Your body is doing what its supposed to do!! Yay!

  • I want to share my chart because I think it is looking good! I also am second guessing myself if I am really CD 25 or actually 23 because my first two days of my “period” was just super light spotting. Do you count spotting as day one of your cycle or when you start to bleed more? Share your charts with me I love looking at them and trying to interpret! 
    kpearse99keikilove
  • @millpe Thank you for your input on my travel temps. I can never be sure whether they’re reliable when I’m changing time zones, even when I attempt to get the same amount of sleep as at home. Let me know if you have any tricks for accuracy while traveling! Re: the hCG shots: I have one left for Nov. 10th. So the first beta on Nov. 12 isn’t going to tell me anything except how much hCG is in my body from that shot (plus hopefully from a blastocyst!) It’s the latter two tests that will let me know if the hCG is rising or falling. I’m actually already so nervous for those tests! @dawn_tay Your chart does look good! Way to HIO—that’s a LOT of hearts girl! Personally I don’t count spotting as Day 1; I’d say you’re 23 dpo. There used to be lots of chart sharing but these daily threads have gotten a little bit quieter lately. Hopefully they will pick up again soon.
  • @dawn-tay I also don't count spotting as day one.

  • @keikilove @kpearse99 thanks guys! I’d say I’m deff CD 23 not 25 then! There’s lots of conflicting info when you are new to tracking everything
    keikilovekpearse99
  • Hi! I decided to join the dailies and meet more friends :)

    @millpe wine tasting with friend sounds like a great way to relax!

    @kpearse99 great that you can have some alone time in the office :D I am kinda annoyed by one of my new colleagues who seems a little pretentious lol

    @beckylookatherbump exact reason that I stopped temping after confirmed O. Hope you have better sleep tonight!

    @feather_heather Stick little embryo!

    @keikilove ;glad that meditation helps! I feel like I have been thinking about IF related stuff all day long, which really affects my productivity... Thinking about giving meditation a try.

    @dawn_tay good luck! I have shorter LP also, yet my 7dpo progesterone testing shows that I produced enough to support a pregnancy so she is not too worried. But a jump in temp is a good sign!

    Month/Cycle: 16/16

    CD/DPO: 22/3

    Timing: -3,-2,-1,0 (IUI)

    Typical LP length: 12

    Testing: Probably 11/17, or WFAF

    R/R: Feeling pretty good right now. Not sure how long the TWW anxiety will kick in haha

    CS/Q: Not charting

  • Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: no clue/8

    Timing: -3, -2, O, +1

    Typical LP length: this is my first month charting, so im not sure... I'll guess 12 

    Testing: I apparently have an obsession with POAS and I really hate myself for it!! I know there's NO chance I'd get a BFP this early.  I tested yesterday, BFN obviously, and then gave the other 2 tests to my husband to hide from me since I have 0 self control lol

    R/R:  we're putting a mudroom addition on our house with a small deck off it and it's coming along Soo nicely!! Hubby's doing it himself so it's taking a long time but it's so cute and I can't wait for it to be done! Right now when you walk into my house the kitchen/dining room is right there and that's where our shoes are..piles of shoes right next to my dining table lol.  Can't wait for that to change!
