Re: TWW Monday 5/18

  • Month/Cycle: 6/6

    CD/DPO: 23/8

    Timing: -4, -2, -1, +1

    Typical LP length: 12 but taking progesterone

    Testing: getting anxious but still going to try to wait for the weekend!

    R/R: Ugh, I’ve got all the Monday feelings today! I’m just not in the mood to do anything! I also just feel like this progesterone is kicking my butt a little bit. All day yesterday I was feeling moody and sad, on top of the rest of the side effects.  Obviously it’ll be worth it if it works, but the not knowing is killing me!

    Month/Cycle: 24/18/8 (AL#2)
    CD/DPO: 31/13dpiui

    Timing: Hopefully spot on!

    Typical LP length: 14-16 days

    Testing: Tomorrow...😬


    R/R: Happy Monday!! I hope everyone had a great weekend!! Mine was really nice...we relaxed quite a bit, but also got more yard work/landscaping done & cleaned the house a bit. We watched Die Hard, so now I’ll finally get all the references in Brooklyn99! Should be another busy work week, which hopefully passes the time quickly to the 3-day weekend! Testing tomorrow...trying to be optimistic, but I’m honestly not super hopeful. Just ready for it to get here so we know one way or another! 

    CS/Q: None.

  • @runningoncookies totally missed that we posted at the same time! Sorry the progesterone is messing with you! I’ve noticed it makes me a bit more irritable, but I agree...hopefully it will be totally worth it!! Hope your Monday starts looking up...and take all the time you need to get motivated, I don’t think anyone should be expected to get too much done on a Monday morning! Haha.

    @bluetickgal oh my gosh...it just dawned on me that it is 5/18 and I knew you were testing on 5/19 so I had to come here to check on you 😂.  That went fast! (For me at least haha). Good luck testing tomorrow!!

    R/R: what a whirlwind of a weekend!  Saturday we saw my family for mom's bday.  it was great to see everyone but it did kill the whole day, which wasn't intended.  but i certainly made up for it yesterday spending the whole day doing yardwork, but my back is killing me today   work is going to be super light today, so i will get some intense house cleaning done while the dogs are in daycare.

  • @runningoncookies sorry to hear  the progesterone is kicking your butt.

    @bluetickgal ahh tomorrow!! Hope it's good news!

    @mvt2003 so many people are doing house projects these days! My sister and BIL have started some painting projects too. And we're halfway done with painting our kitchen and I may spend this week getting rid of the wallpaper in our foyer and painting there as well. So many projects we could do!

    Month/Cycle: almost 3 years

    CD/DPO: 20/5

    Timing: -1, 0

    Typical LP length: 13 days

    Testing: only if AF is late

    R/R: on furlough again this week. I got news late Friday that we are likely going to be WFH for the rest of the year. Both happy and sad about that. I'll have to make a point to go out everyday since I won't even have the short drive to and from work to catch some sun. Not sure if furloughs are continuing after this week but I'll find out when I work next week.

    CS/Q: FF moved my O date a day later with my temp input this morning. Feeling much better about our timing!

    @bluetickgal Yayyy for tomorrow! Here's hoping!!!! 

    @asf0613 I get so cranky when I have to spend an entire day on something like that :D but I'm glad you got to be productive the next day! 

    @inthewoods23 Hopefully no more furloughs!!! It's such a weird feeling knowing we're also probably not going back to the office this year and it's only May.

  • Month/Cycle: 11/10 

    CD/DPO: 29/13 per ff but I think it’s 11. 

    Timing: Good 

    Typical LP length: 12-14 days 

    Testing: Bfn this morning 

    R/R: Pretty bummed about my test this morning. But I don’t know what else I expect anymore. That test had to but my cautious optimism back in it’s lane.. 😕 anyways, it was a busy weekend for me. I worked, and just did a few things around the house. We’re supposed to go to a motor cross race this weekend, that Fil participates in, and camp with them. You just watch the track from where ever your “camped” so it’s pretty easy to social distance at these things. Not really ready to handle af in a camper with other people. But it is what is is. My in-laws are good people, and I enjoy spending time with them. The puppy has an appt for shots later today, so besides that, it should be a pretty chill day. The weather is nice, thank God.

    @runningoncookies sorry you’re feeling moody on the meds. I hope it’s all worth it! 

    @bluetickgal glad you had a productive weekend. I bet that helped take your mind off of the tww. So many fx for you! 

    @mvt2003 You are so brave taking on that much by yourself! We painted our kitchen several years ago, and it was awful. 0/10 😂 cosmos are my fave! 

    @asf0613 sorry your back is sore today. I hope you feel better soon. Glad you had a good time with your mom too, although it does suck when events take the entire day! Enjoy your dog free cleaning! 

    @inthewoods23 that’s crazy that they’re expecting that to take the entire year, I’m sorry. I hope you find something to occupy your time through all of this. Ff did the same with my opks and “O” date too, this cycle. That’s why I think my dates are wrong. I always o on the longer side expected after a positive OPK. Ff tried to give me an explanation, but I don’t believe them. Lol

  • @mvt2003 yeah I'm like... that's actually a really long time when you think about it. Our parent company has been working on consolidating rooftops for all it's companies since last year so that plays a role in keeping us at home. I'm assuming they're going to buy out the lease for the building I'm in and keep the other building until we find a new place because that building has our lab. It sounded like at some point they would stagger us going back in to the office to collect everything from our desks. I don't know if that's going to be later this year, like fall/winter, or if it would be done sooner in the summer once they have the plan finalized.

  • @bows22 thanks, friend!! ☺️ It actually went fairly fast for me too...as fast as two weeks at home can go! Haha.
    @mvt2003 ah, thanks friend...love that gif! Painting can be a pain, but it’s so awesome seeing it once it’s finished! Hope it goes smoothly and you’ll have 3 freshly painted rooms before you know it! Good for you on continuing with the 21 Day Fix Extreme...I need some of your motivation! 
    @asf0613 thanks lady!! We are actually almost caught up to current on Brooklyn99, so I missed a ton of references before! Haha. It was a good action movie, I’d recommend watching it! Sorry your visit took up the whole day, but good for you for getting things done yesterday! Hopefully you ca relax a little today and your back will get to feeling better! 
    @inthewoods23 thanks, friend!! Sorry you are on furlough again, but I hope you have a nice week off! Hope you can get out and get some fresh air often since you’ll be working from home for a long time! Ours is continuing indefinitely at this point...that’s kind of crazy they just called it through the end of the year. But kind of nice having a long term plan! Glad FF changed O date and you feel better about timing now!! 
    @photographerwife thanks, friend!! So sorry about the BFN this morning...hopefully you are only 11DPO and it was just too early! Your weekend with your IL’s sounds like fun...hoping you don’t have to deal with AF during that though! 
    photographerwifebows22
  • @photographerwife sometimes I think FF doesn't even follow it's own rules for detecting O. Like really, you're going to tell me I O'ed on the day I got my first positive OPK at 8pm at night when the rule is always O occurs within 24-48 hours?? I don't think so. The temp jump made sense though. I'm curious to see if it will change again. I must be having one of those slow rise BBTs after O. That's not common for me. There's always a really good temp bump.

    @bluetickgal I think we are supposed to warm up this week so that will be nice. It was lovely on Saturday and then dropped into the 50s yesterday. The WFH is kind of just a rumor at this point. Not really sure. It was something my boss mentioned on Friday after he had talked to our HR. We might be at the "we're looking to possibly do this" stage.

    @runningoncookies boo that monday feeling.  I have it too.  It's also raining and cold, so that's not helping with the motivation to do anything.  I hope your day gets better!

    @bluetickgal All the FX for you tomorrow!!!  I'm glad you had a good weekend.  Also, LOVE Brooklyn 99.  I haven't ever watched Die Hard (I've seen bits and pieces of it) so I don't get all those references. haha

    @mvt2003 Yay for O and yay for painting!!  Hopefully you can pick an awesome color for YH's office.  May I suggest purple or neon orange?  haha jk.  Also kudos to you for doing 21DFE!

    @asf0613 It's so much easier to get house cleaning done when the dogs aren't home.  I swear my yorkie decides to play with a toy right where I'm trying to vacuum, so he's always in the way.  Hope you have a good, productive day!

    @inthewoods23 Sorry about furloughs again and possibly working from home the rest of the year.  It's crazy to think that this could affect everything for that long.

    @photographerwife I'm so sorry about your BFN.  Sending hugs friend.  I hope you're able to get out in the nice weather and enjoy it a bit.

    R/R: Not much going on in my world right now.  We had a pretty lazy day yesterday which was nice.  I spent a couple hours zooming with my family and playing Kahoot.  That's become a weekly tradition on Sundays.  It's supposed to be rainy and gross the next few days, so I'm hoping to be productive inside the house and get it clean, so when the nice weather comes back I can spend my days sitting outside reading.  But we'll see.

    @runningoncookies I'm sorry you're having a tough day.  I feel you though.  It's a Monday Monday.

    @bluetickgal Good luck tomorrow!  I also have never watched Die Hard, but I also am not caught up on Brooklyn 99.  I do love that show though!

    @mvt2003 Lol about the David Spade movie.  I love him!  But yeah those Netflix movies are hit or miss for sure.

    @asf0613 I need to clean too.  Will I?  Meh.  Doubtful.  Sending you all the productivity vibes!

    @inthewoods23 The rest of the year??  That's crazy!  But if I could do that with my job I 100% would.

    @photographerwife So sorry about the test.  :(  But as others have said- hopefully it's just too early!

    @linzrunz I need to look that game up.  The only video call games we have done are in that House Party app where you can play Heads Up.  It's pretty fun!


    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 19/6

    Timing: pretty bad

    Typical LP length: ~14days

    Testing: only if late

    R/R:  Nothing too exciting, just working on unemployment stuff and tax stuff and all that boring stuff.  My accountant of several years quit his job earlier this year, so I have this new accountant who is VERY hard to get a hold of.  She also doesn't work too much "digitally" so good luck trying to email her questions.  *sigh*  It's also rainy today so I feel blah.  Oh!  I did make homemade ice cream yesterday and it's delicious!

  • @linzrunz if I had to guess, I think they will have us stay home for months so that they can buy out the lease on 1 of our buildings. Probably better anyway since I've heard experts believe there will be a second wave to the pandemic. We're gloomy and rainy here too. Makes me feel less productive being on furlough

    @shlecks your tags seem to be fine! I do miss going into the office. In the future I think I'd probably want to WFH for a week every month or something. I finally got to doing our taxes this weekend. It just sucks to go through and we have to pay this year 😢 on the plus side I got notified that Congress passed a credit for home improvements and for installing an EV charger in our house that wasn't passed at the time we did our 2018 taxes so I get to send in an amendment for an extra $650 refund! Eases the burden of paying this year.

    @asf0613 Yes! It’s the Nostalgia Ice Cream Maker. We originally got one as a wedding present 6 years ago and I never opened it until this pandemic and found out I didn’t have all the parts. It was so disappointing. But MH got me a new one and I tried it out yesterday. So easy! I can’t wait to try other flavors!

  • @inthewoods23 glad it’s supposed to warm back up soon...the temps have been all over the place here, but I think it’s finally settling down a bit to actual Spring temps! I see...well, hopefully it won’t last that long, but who knows at this point! We may all be working from home for the rest of the year! 
    @runningoncookies thanks lady! 
    @linzrunz thanks, friend! So funny that so many of us watch Brooklyn99 but haven’t seen Die Hard! I feel better now! Lazy Sundays are the best! Sounds fun that you were able to play with your family on Zoom too! It’s been rainy & gross here today...that sounds like a great plan to get your stuff done inside so you can enjoy the better weather when it comes! 
    @shlecks thank you! Yes, Brooklyn99 is so good! Hopefully you can get ahold of your accountant soon, that’s annoying they don’t do much digitally! Homemade ice cream sounds so good!! 
    @asf0613 ugh, sorry for the drain issues! Hopefully they get it fixed tomorrow!
