  • @bows22 enjoy your lazy weekend!! It’s definitely nice to have the home to yourself for a bit!

    @mvt2003 boo for CD1 but hope it’s not too bad!

    @keikilove agree that the news cycle has been overwhelming. Hope you get some relaxation in!!

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 29/4

    Timing: good 

    Typical LP Length: 13

    Testing: if AF is late

    R/R: we came to visit DH’s sister and her husband (about a 5 hour drive from us) for the weekend, so I’m looking forward to spending time with them! Nothing is open (and we wouldn’t go out if it was) so just planning for some relaxation. Also got word from work yesterday that I can keep seeing patients remotely, so working from home another week!

    CS/Q: nope. PCOS makes everything unpredictable.

    I'm sorry I've been so flaky this week, it's my first week back to work and it's been insane.
    I just wanted to update y'all on what's going on:

    I got a BFP today.  I checked my app (I've been using Clue for my cycles and had planned on starting FF next month) and ALL of my data had changed from earlier in the month.  So my FW was later than I thought, so it appears our timing was good after all.  BUT it also says my cycles are 30 days, so it says AF is due tomorrow.  Anyway, I just wanted to update y'all quickly, and I'll head out because I know I haven't been here long, I just didn't want to ghost y'all.  If anything changes I'll be back, but I am rooting for all of you and thank you so much for being so welcoming to me while I've been here.

    @bows22 glad YH is getting his weekend and that you'll have a great one too! A quiet weekend by myself sounds wonderful at this point. Enjoy!!

    @keikilove yay for sleep!! Hope you got a little more rest after posting. I hear ya on the news cycle, I woke up on the east coast this morning and read about everything that happened last night and just feel so angry that in 2020 this is STILL a reality in America.  I hope you have some soothing self care this weekend. And also feel you on the routine of testing! Every. Time. 

    @priyadoc that's great that you are visiting family! Have a great time - hope it is nice and relaxing for you!!

    Month/Cycle: 13/11

    CD/DPO: 17/3

    Timing: good! -5 (does that even count lol), -4, -2, O

    Typical LP length: 12-14 days

    Testing: yesterday I said WFAF, this morning I woke up itchy to test 😂 going to hold off until next Friday based on what my BBT is doing.

    R/R: so thankful I am in TWW bc everything about MH has been driving me up the wall the last day or so. If I were in the FW I don't know that we'd have a shot this month!! 🤣 I think I have hit quarantine fatigue lol. We're watching Brooklyn 99 for the first time and saw an episode the other day where two of the characters have to go into quarantine and it hit way too close to home. This weekend should be nice here so I'm hoping to get some time in the yard! We are getting pizza tonight from the place I usually get my Friday lunch from (it's across the street from my school) and I am pumped. It's been like a month since we had pizza and that's unheard of for us.

    @keikilove also loving “just to start the routine” - good luck testing this weekend, my friend! I’m also having a hard time processing current events and just feeling so helpless

    @priyadoc have fun on your mini trip! I’m sure it’s nice to get away!

    @_orchid_ enjoy your pizza dinner! It will probably taste extra good since it’s been so long!

  • krash_krash_ member
    @bows22 enjoy your lazy weekend! I hope the weather is nice for you!
    @mvt2003 sorry about CD 1  <3 rooting so hard for your FET!
    @keikilove I hear ya! Definitely get some self care in!
    @priyadoc have a fun weekend!
    @_orchid_ glad you are in the TWW! I hope it is your last! Enjoy your pizza.

    Month/Cycle: 6/6

    CD/DPO: 29/9

    Timing: good

    Typical LP length: 14

    Testing: Tuesday 

    R/R: it has been hard to focus on anything other than what is going on. TTC has not been top of mind so sorry that I haven't checked in much. Each morning I wake up to more news about places I have enjoyed and care about being destroyed and reports of more ignorant and careless moves by our police. I really truly hope that with the news of the one officers arrest and charge that protests cool off a bit tonight. I think going into the weekend will be even worse with people in the cities moving around more and potentially people not from here coming to participate.  

    CS/Q: I'm starting the cycle of SS that I do about every TWW about this time.
