R/R: Gosh, I am sooo tired and exhausted everyday now. Not sure why. I was falling asleep at 6:30pm yesterday on the couch after work. It’s hard for me to get up in the mornings for work cause I’m just so out of it asleep. I have 2 days off work after this so I’m hoping to sleep in for a bit and relax the most I can. I have been going to bed super early at night too and I’m still tired when I wake up. I hope I get some energy soon as this is insane and really weird for me.
GTKY: What is one thing you hope to accomplish this weekend? I hope to bare the outside world and go get some groceries with my DH. It will be a quick get in and get out lol
@ashaislurking I’m so sorry AF showed up and that your upset. Hugs ❤️ FX for this upcoming cycle.
@mindyb2019 sorry to hear your sleep hasn't been good! That really sucks, especially with the chaos going on
GTKY: What is one thing you hope to accomplish this weekend? Definitely cleaning all the dishes.... We have the Cuisinart Griddler that DH makes our burgers on and he's reused it multiple times lol getting that "grill" flavor on the next meal. May also need a small grocery trip.

GTKY: What is one thing you hope to accomplish this weekend?
@mindyb2019 I'm sorry you're so tired. It's so hard to function when fatigue is bad. I hope you can rest up this weekend and feel better soon!
@inthewoods23 I'm sorry you're seeming to have such a wonky cycle this time around. FX that you O sooner rather than later.
@allthingscozy You should hunker down...in bed...and HIO. Yay for a positive OPK!
On the other hand, we took our puppies on a nice long hike yesterday and they were so happy! Sierra (my gsd) accidentally went swimming in the river. She was trying to get a stick that was close to the bank and fell in head first into the water. She usually likes swimming, but she must not have expected that to happen because she got out quick.
GTKY: What is one thing you hope to accomplish this weekend? Well, I finished Love is Blind last night, so I guess up next is the crazy tiger one that I keep hearing about. I'd like to finish that. I should also probably clean the house. It isn't too dirty, but definitely needs a vacuum and some tidying.
Hysteroscopy 10.04.17 10.05.17
Left tube removed
dx: Endometriosis, Adenomyosis
BC: February-October 2019
TTA: November-December 2019

@allthingscozy Good luck w the home decorating today.
@inthewoods23 & @linzrunz Sorry for the delayed O. Wish I could help w predictions, but I have no idea.
@linzrunz Your descriptions for HIO have had me laughing so hard this week!😄 We used to have a member that gave her HIO timing funny descriptions so some of us joined in on that. I will try to get creative again.
GTKY: What is one thing you hope to accomplish this weekend? Make a list of all our house projects for this weekend & next week. Have a “budget date” to review our spending & savings plans in light of this pandemic.
@ashaislurking Sorry about AF. FX for the next cycle!
@mindyb2019 I have been sleeping like crap and exhausted every day too. I’m just chalking it up to the higher anxiety baseline wearing me out, but it definitely sucks.
@inthewoods23 I think as long as you are always testing at the same time before you get out of bed, you’ll still be able to see the shift even if all of your temps are elevated from cocooning.
@allthingscozy Yay for positive OPK! Go get you some
@linzrunz Sorry for O confusion, hopefully it will be soon if it hasn’t happened yet. How did you like Love is Blind? I love/hated it.
@keikilove Yay for sunshine, hope you get some good walks in.
WAYDTGKU: temping, OPKs, PNVs, Vitamin C, B+, HIO during FW, and I caved and bought an Ava bracelet with all the money I am saving from no hair/nail/massage appointments lol, so we will see if that helps at all or just adds to my cycle confusion
R/R: I am so so so bored. We have been getting way too much take out just to have an excuse to leave the house and drive somewhere. I have run out of shows to watch and I feel like I just have CNN on all the time and I am in such a rut. We HIO just for fun this afternoon mostly because we are just so bored
CS/Q: I have admittedly been drinking way more often than normal. Not like crazy amounts (at least during the work week), but a few drinks before bed. I feel like my chart is probably effed from this. If I cut out the booze starting tomorrow and have 6-7 normal temps before O will FF/Ava be able to figure my shiz out? I am also having OPK weirdness so I feel like I may be totally in the dark this month.
GTKY: What is one thing you hope to accomplish this weekend? Need to do 5ish hours of work to be on track for the month with billable hours so I guess that lol. It feels like “weekend” is no longer a thing really.
