    WAYDTGKU: OPKs, BBT, maca, prenatals, idk what else the plan will be this cycle. 

    R/R: well here I am. Already 6 months into it. Hopefully I’ll be KU soon. I’m thankful for this board. TMI, but this AF, I started using the diva cup. I hope I like it! All good soo far, ttc has made me very comfortable with my body. 😂

    CS/Q: nothing to see 

    @gingermama29 aww! Your play sounds cute! I hope all goes well. And your evening sounds lovely. I LOVE my audible books. 

    @feather_heather I hope you have a good week! The laundry room sounds so nice! I wish I had a dedicated laundry room!

    WAYDTGKU: OPks, temping, CM, Bding whenever we want, PNv, Ubiquinol, balance supplement 

    R/R: I’m off today then back for two more 12 hour shifts but then I have like a whole week off and I moved shifts around so I’m home for my expected fertile time so we can Bd whenever we want lol 

    CS/Q: attached my FF and PREmom chart just to show why I like PREmom temp curve better, it’s not as dramatic as FF I find lol but just looking at FF it’s like hmm could be my body trying to ovulate early then I switch to PREmom and I’m like nope 

    @gingermamma that sounds like such a fun night!

    [email protected]_heather FX for your transfer!

  • @photographerwife sorry about cd 1. I do love the diva cup! I share the diva cup information with all the women I know that will feel comfortable with me talking about it. And when that time comes for my daughter(s) to start her period, I will share the focus cup with them as well. It did take me a couple cycles to get the hang of it though. 
    @heather_feather room makeovers are a lot of fun. I hope you both enjoy the process. I may have missed it, but have you completed the process to transfer the frozen embryos or are you preparing for it?

  • @gingermama29 - That sounds like such a nice day with you husband!

    @photographerwife - I switched to a divacup about 7 months ago and I love it! I love just having to change it twice a day and not worry about it otherwise. I made the switch because we were going on a cruise and I was going to be on my period (and I didn't know what the bathroom situation would be at the beaches and I was not about changing anything in porta potties)

    @dawn_tay - I'm so jealous of your whole week off work!

    @blackgirlmagic - I'm downcycling right now. Hopefully the transfer will be sometime during the week of Christmas!

  • @inthewoods23 - Oh that's awesome! You should get a fan with a heater! My dad has one, and I'm trying to convince DH that we need one too (my argument now is that I need to stay warm after my transfer lol)
  • @feather_heather frankly that might not be a bad idea since it seems like moisture stays on the walls forever (or maybe the fan just doesn't move air well enough). We do have a heater in our other bathroom but we can't use it because the tub leaks and we have yet to fix it! I love all the things we say because "gotta keep the ute warm after transfer". Do it for the ute man! Lol

    WAYDTGKU: PNV, OPK, RE (DH and I doing prelim testing this week...get results 12/6)

    R/R: it's a 3 day work week! yesss! DH and I BD'd over the weekend even though he was sick and now I'm sick! haha. I knew I was taking that risk...the things we do when TTC lol. Normally I would be like, get away from me don't touch me :) Can't tell what's going on with O this month, digital OPK isn't giving me reliable info like it has past 3 cycles, but CM is getting closer and closer to EWCM so we'll see (maybe it's just a weird delay)...in any case it will be nice to have some beginning answers and info when we get results (right now this is feeling like the ultimate TWW for 12/6!!!) patience, breathe...happy I can focus on family and good food this week!!

    CS/Q: nope

  • @gingermama29 hope your performance goes great tonight! happy to hear about your wonderful Sunday with DH <3

    @feather_heather laundry room makeover sounds so fun! our laundry is just in a closet...I dream of a whole room one day :)

    @photographerwife sorry about CD1. I've heard good things about the diva cup. curious to hear what you think!

    @dawn_tay glad BD timing should work out well for you this month! fx

    @inthewoods23 I am also hoping for a quiet work week :) we deserve it, right!?
    gingermama29
  • @feather_heather oh your laundry room project sounds awesome! I love a good room makeover! Happy shopping!

    @photographerwife so sorry for CD 1. I was really unsure about audio books feeling like I wouldn't have the attention span for them, but I'm really loving it! I'm occasionally popping over on my Kindle when I need to reread parts.

    @dawn_tay glad your schedule will be good for BD. FX for you!

    @inthewoods23 thanks! Yay for short work weeks! Hope things stay quiet!

    @gladmamma sorry you got sick but FX for good timing. Hopefully you'll get some clarity with O soon!  
  • @gingermama29 Listening to a book together is such a great idea! We love doing that on road trips, and I don't know why it never occurred to me to try at the house.

    @feather_heather A laundry room makeover sounds amazing!

    @photographerwife Sorry for CD 1 :( 

    @dawn_tay Interesting - I just downloaded premom to use the OPK functionality, and have been wondering if a full switch might make sense eventually. Are there things you still prefer about FF?

    @inthewoods23 Can't tell if coworkers taking extra days off will make things nice and quiet for you or just pile on to the workload, but I hope they make the "right" decision either way!

    @gladmamma We've tried to BD without kissing before when one of us was sick, and it was soooo awkward. Hope your sickness passes quickly, and before Thursday!

    R/R: Random, but we're "adopting" a local kid for Christmas this year, and my 4th grader requested an American Girl doll. I was obsessed with AG dolls growing up and browsing their online calendar is taking me way back!

  • @ziggymama06 I keep reading it as girlfriend stuffing. Takes me a moment to remember you're saying gluten free stuffing 😆

  • @photographerwife I looove my diva cup! I have a retroverted uterus/ cervix so it took me a while to figure out how to place it correctly lol but since then its been great! 

    @feather_heather yes a week off is much needed because i typically work like 80+ hours the week before when i end up having an 8 day stretch off lol downside and upside to 12 hour shifts 

    @gladmamma are you temping too?

    @emiliadkay I life FF for the advance interpretation and they have more symptoms to chart but i like the look/ inputing of premom better lol so ive been using both 


    emiliadkayphotographerwife
  • @tryingktogku no, might start next cycle 
  • @inthewoods23 Kit was adorable. I think she came out a little later, after I was already committed to another. Alas. I spent so many hours writing down all the accessories I wanted and calculating how long I'd have to save my allowance to get them... LOL at girlfriend stuffing

    @ziggymama06 You've inspired me to start mandating DH take a daily vitamin. I don't know why that didn't occur to me before now!

  • @blackgirlmagic yeah! im really liking it so far. The only reason I havent before is just because it was kind of expensive. But after getting ready to "stock up" yesterday, i just said forget it! I like that it is less waste too!

    @feather_heather That sounds like an awesome reason to start using one! I dont want to think about changing stuff in porta potties either. 🤢

    @inthewoods23 I hope you have a calm week! 

    @gladmamma sorry youre sick now! I hope your testing goes well! I like the diva cup so far, Day 1, i had to readjust it earlier because it didnt "open" but its not bad at all honestly! and so nice that i dont have to change it so often, and less waste. Cheaper in the long run too!

    @gingermama29 I hear you! I catch myself skipping back alot if my mind wonders. I really like them. I always listen driving, cleaning, showering.. etc.

    @emiliadkay thats sweet! the AG dolls are so cute!

    @ziggymama06 I take the now brand of maca at 500mg, you and your SO can take it, and I try to do twice a day, but sometimes i forget. Ive read to that it can help increase libido too! That might help your EOD! lol

    @tryingktogku I hope I like it too! I prefer FF for the exact opposite of what you do. Pre-mom always has a different interpretation and I like the bigger chart jumps!

  • @emiliadkay that's so awesome that you're adopting a local kid. And yesssss to so the American Girl nostalgia! I still have mine from my childhood.

    @ziggymama06 we're listening to the His Dark Materials trilogy. DH has read them dozens of times but it's my first go through. Ooooh I love cheesecake!! What kind are you making?
    emiliadkayziggymama06
  • @gingermama29 Oh cool... how are you enjoying them?  That's a new show on HBO now, I think.  I make a NY style cheesecake with cream cheese (I mix in some low fat and no one knows, shh)... lol... I serve it plain as most of the fam likes it that way but my FIL likes cherries on his so I have those on the side.

    @photographerwife Oh awesome!  Do you feel a difference?  I didn't realize that men could take that as well.  I'm going to look into this and may add it to our routine.  Thx!

    @emiliadkay Yes, men's health is just as important!!  Hubs and I take them after dinner.  I put them out for him so he doesn't really have a choice lol

    @inthewoods23&nbsp; lololol "girlfriend" stuffing sounds fun... Like it should be filled with a bunch of cranberries or something, ha!

  • @ziggymama06 I am enjoying them! DH and I watch it on HBO too! But I definitely like the books better. And yum to your cheesecake. Cheesecake is my favorite dessert
    ziggymama06
  • @gingermama29&nbsp; Awesome!  I'll hafta to check them out.  This may be an UO, but I don't even really like cheesecake.  It's my hubs favorite so I made it one time like 11 years ago for him and everyone loved it so now it is a tradition for Thanksgiving and Christmas. lolol
