Re: TWW Friday 1/31

  • Good morning everyone! TGIF 🙂

    Month/Cycle: 8/7

    CD/DPO: 24/7

    Timing: -4, -2, -1, O

    Typical LP length: Not sure

    Testing: already started knowing it’s WAY too early.  I’m excited about our timing so I just couldn’t help myself 🙄 

    R/R: I don’t have to teach my toughest class today!! Friday win! :) I have one class of all boys and it is so not my strong suit apparently to teach all boys.

    I’m completely imagining tons of early symptoms and don’t believe myself if they’re really there or not. Still telling myself it’s too early to know anything anyway.

    CS/Q: none

    @ yay for an easier Friday!! I hope you don’t drive yourself crazy testing over the weekend though! Lol. 

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD/DPO: 19/3

    Timing: -1

    Typical LP length: 🤷🏽‍♀️ I’m expecting 14 this cycle 

    Testing: Nope

    R/R: Rant - I’m annoyed with the scale lately. I’ve been back on my low carb way of eating for a few weeks now but the damn scale isn’t budging. Also I have basically felt bloated since Christmas. WTH. Lol. I’ve even been drinking lemon juice in my water in an attempt to flush my system but so far it’s not helping. Rave - we are off to Disney World (Epcot) tomorrow so that is exciting! FX it doesn’t rain though! 

    CS/Q: nope

    Edited for typo!

  • @krystrist2014 this is why I don't have a scale. I just go by how I feel. 
    @singing_koala try to not drive yourself crazy. 

    Month/Cycle: 4/3

    CD/DPO: 19/2

    Timing: -3,-2,-1

    Typical LP length: 14 days

    Testing: nope

    R/R: my dog has a GI bug so I have to take him in to the vet. I get super anxious at the vet so I am already working myself up to think it really bad and expensive. 

    CS/Q: got my coverline this morning.

  • @krystrist2014 - I judge my weight by how my clothes fit rather than the number on the scale. I developed an eating disorder in 2006 because of that, so now I just notice how my clothes fit/feel, and then make sure I eat better and get a log more miles of running until my clothes fit better again, lol.

    Month/Cycle: 9/7/1 AL

    CD/DPO: 20/5

    Timing: -1 (x2 hehe)

    Typical LP length: 16 days

    Testing: Not yet

    R/R: Happy Friday! I had a nice (if chilly) run this morning, and am feeling pretty good. I have an appt for a cut & color tomorrow. We haven't watched a single football game this year, so I doubt we have plans for Super Bowl Sunday. We might just watch it so we can eat a bunch of junky food on Sunday lol.

    CS/Q: Nah

  • @legendairymomma and @ttcbabyodo I try to go by both the scale and how I feel. I feel bloated and none of my pants are fitting how they were before Christmas so that is part of my irritation. So I guess I’m not so much annoyed with the scale as I am annoyed with my body. Lol! 

    @legendairymomma awww poor pupper!! I hope everything goes well and the pup starts feeling better soon! 
    @ttcbabyodo haha! I like your plans! MH is a 9ers fan so he’s basically losing his mind this year. 😳 I’m terrified they will lose and he will be depressed. That’s how serious he is about his team. 
  • @kpearse99 maybe this should be my FFFC but we’ve beeb going to Epcot once a year for the last 3 years and we’ve never been on the ride with Figment. 😬 It always looked boring to me and I’m secretly hoping they will replace it with something cooler. 
  • @krystrist2014 you bite your tongue and take that wish back!!!!  :D I was at a conference in Orlando last year over my birthday so my co-workers and I went to Epcot to celebrate. I MADE them get on the ride with me.. my own friend was scared because she said it was creepy haha but I sat there with the biggest smile on my face dancing to the music! It isn't the greatest ride, like at all, but that little purple guy left a lasting memory from the first time I went on it in 3rd grade with my family. I guess it's more about the memory for me and the meaning behind Figment himself, more than the ride itself. If that makes sense?

  • No shame in that, @krystrist2014. I've been to Epcot at least 9 times since 2011, and I have yet to ride Figment. And Epcot is both MH and my favorite park! I think we just forget that it's there. I've only ever done Captain EO once, too. I'm more about World Showcase, tbh.

  • So, I guess I do kinda have a CS/Q, but I saw @krash_ post her chart yesterday and I noticed that I had a pretty significant temp dip after my LH surge, so it's nice knowing I'm not the only one who didn't get an immediate temp spike after O. I think my progesterone is slow to kick in after my LH surge or something.

  • Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 23/7

    Timing: -4, -2, -1

    Typical LP length: Unsure

    Testing: WFAF most likely

    R/R: Rave: ITS FRIDAY!! And my childhood best friend Lauren comes into town today. SO excited to see her and to be able to relax over the weekend. Lauren has never been to where I live so we are gonna do all the fun touristy stuff tomorrow and then go to the Casino which I love doing (even though I really shouldn't... lol). Then on Sunday, we are going to a get together to watch the superbowl which should be fun! Rant: I have been so bloated and crampy and it is miserable  :s

    CS/Q: None

    @legendairymomma I'm sorry about pup! Hopefully the vet goes well and you don't have to spend a million dollars. I am a bit traumatized by the vet too, since in the past two years we've had to go to the emergency vet three times  :|  and two of them spent $1000+ (three dogs all under 2 = lots of troublemaking). Our fur babies can be so expensive but we love them so I just bite my tongue lol!

    @kpearse99 I am loving your gif in regards to the superbowl... that is exactly me. We will be going over to a friends get together and I will be enjoying all the food/snacks/commercials for sure!

    @ttcbabyodo I haven't had my hair done since September and I've been itching to go back soon. I don't pamper myself often so when I do I soak up every moment :) Enjoy!

    And apparently my FFFC is that I've never been to Epcot! Oops

  • Month/Cycle: 21/15/5 AL#2

    CD/DPO: 22/4 or 5

    Timing: Really good!

    Typical LP length: 14-16 days

    Testing: Probably at 15DPO to stop progesterone if necessary.

    R/R: We made it to Friday...woohoo!! It’s a cool, rainy day today...but Sunday is supposed to be wonderful! We are going to take the dogs to the dog park that afternoon, then make some wings and watch the Super Bowl (AND the commercials) together at home! I’m looking forward to an otherwise relaxing day tomorrow as well! 

    CS/Q: None, not temping in TWW.

    @singing_koala yeah...7DPO is quite early, and not likely you’d be feeling symptoms already! Our minds can play some pretty cruel tricks on us though! Hopefully you can hold out another couple days to test again! 

    @krystrist2014 sorry for the frustration with the scale lately...hopefully it starts going in the other direction soon! Enjoy Disney tomorrow! 

    @legendairymomma sorry your pup is sick! Hopefully it’s an easy/inexpensive fix!! 

    @ttcbabyodo oh, getting a new hairdo is always fun! Enjoy! Haha, yeah we never do wings...but it’s the Super Bowl, so why not?! I’ve had cycles where I’ve had a slow rise, cycles where I had a huge spike and then it stabilized, and a few cycles ago I had a fall-back on CD3 like you on CD2...I’d say it can all be “normal”. 

    @kpearse99 your weekend sounds wonderful!! Also, your gif game is on point today, my friend!! 


    @bserena hope you have an awesome weekend with your friend!! +1 for having never been to Epcot! I’ve been to Disney World, but not to that specific park.

  • @bluetickgal I strongly appreciate your constant count downs to Friday and then when you always announce that we made it! The temp here is supposed to go up starting Monday, I'm looking forward to a few warmer days too!

  • Back from the vet. Anti nausea, anti diarrhea, fluids, antibiotics, and $221 later and he should be good as new within a week. Right on budget for what I expected to pay so were good. 😊

  • @legendairymomma Oh man, poor pup but so glad it isn't something too serious and hope he feels better soon! And yay for your wallet, lol!!!
  • @kpearse99 haha, DH and I start our countdown to the weekend on Monday...I guess I’ve carried it into my posts more than I realized! 😂 We live for the weekends though, even if we aren’t really doing much! I’m glad you are getting warmer temps soon too! January can leave with her horrible temperatures...hopefully February is much better! 
    @legendairymomma ugh, that’s rough!! I’m glad your pup should be better soon though!

  • @bluetickgal I remember you saying that on one of the IF threads about you guys counting down to the weekends starting on Mondays. I appreciate it so much that you carried it over to here!!

  • My app is being glitchy so I'm sorry for the quick update! It's driving me nuts and won't let me see what I type past a few lines.
    @bserena sounds like a wonderful girls' weekend !
    @bluetickgal I'm so thankful for Friday and the weekend.
    @krystrist2014 the scale can be so deceiving. I was pretty obsessed with it until I got a bit older and now I just focus on feeling good and strong
    @legendairymomma so sorry about your pup! Hope it gets resolved.
    @ttcbabyodo I need a haircut so bad, my hair is seriously out of control!
    @kpearse99 I don't watch football but you can't beat friends and good food!

    Nothing new to report here. We are still at the hotel at Disneyland and had a blast at the party!
    I'm CD 28/17dpo and no AF so we decided to test on Sunday. My mom leaves tomorrow and it will be nice to have some peace and quiet when we do it.

  • @singing_koala yay for an easier Friday!! Teaching mostly boys is not my strong suit either, lol. 

    @krystrist2014 same here with the bloating!! I’ve been eating right and going to the gym 4/5 days a week and I can’t get rid of the bloat, UGH. 

    @kpearse99 sounds like a fun weekend!! I’m just glad this dang week is finally over lol!

    @legendairymomma poor pup!! I’m glad it wasn’t too crazy expensive to fix!

    @bserena YAY FRIDAY!!! Have fun with your friend this weekend!! 

    @ttcbabyodo ooooh what are you planning to do with your hair?

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: CD 23

    Timing: 🤷‍♀️ Not feeling great about it

    Typical LP length: 🤷‍♀️

    Testing: WFAF. Probably. 😬

    R/R: TGIF!!!!!! I am so irritated because I had planned on doing all my Feb prep during the evenings this week and then I got sick and ended up not feeling up to it until Wednesday night. I had lots of stuff to print/cut out/laminate so I started on Wednesday and ran out of ink. No big deal, I have HP instant ink so I already had replacement cartridges waiting. I replaced them and the dang black ink cartridge isn’t working! As in no black ink is showing up at all when I try to print. This happened at like 11pm Wed night so I said F it and went to bed. Last night tried tons of troubleshooting and had to conclude it’s an issue with the cartridge itself so I contacted customer service and have a new cartridge on the way but now I have to wait for it to get here before I can print anything, and I’m going to be all behind! UGH. I mean it isn’t the end of the world but I’m still so annoyed. Hopefully it will come this weekend so I can at least get a few things prepped. 

    On a positive note, it SNOWED for a few minutes today!! I mean it was mixed with rain, but still! We turned the lights off in my classroom and watched it fall for a little while, and they were super excited to put the weather wheel on “snowy” for the first time ever! 💗 Poor sweet southern children lol! 

    CS/Q: nope 

    bluetickgalfitzfizz
  • @morethanamama good luck testing this weekend! 
    @kitkatz1990 sorry for the ink frustration!! Oh, that is so sweet about the kiddos in your class seeing snow for the first time! 


    kitkatz1990
  • Whew ... finally had a chance to sit down for the day and check in. 😊 

    @kitkatz1990 YAY SNOOOW. Idc how much snow there is, it’s exciting every time. Also, ink is the pits! I’m so sorry your printer is being a butt. I also hate how expensive ink is. You sound so organized to be prepping all that for the whole month!

    @morethanamama FX for your test this weekend. I’m glad the party was fun!

    @bluetickgal I know 😩 it’s wayyyy too early to test and I hope I can hold out for a few days too. Good thing these tests are cheap. Your weekend sounds amazing. The perfect amount of getting out and getting some fresh air but also relaxing at home. I might plan for something similar. 

    @bserena so sorry about the bloat/cramps! That feeling is the worst. I hope it doesn’t slow you down any for your fun weekend!

    @krystrist2014 Ooooh have an amazing time at Epcot! I love that park!
