    Month/Cycle: 19/21 including 2 benched 

    CD/DPO: 20/2

    Timing: -3,-1,O

    Typical LP length: 12

    Testing: Next Friday will be 10 DPO so most likely then. 

    R/R: We didn’t get +1 in last night. I was working and DH was tired and I told him I would be “right behind him” but by the time I got upstairs and got ready for bed he fell asleep waiting for me. I didn’t bother waking him up since I am pretty sure yesterday was +1, but then this morning I’m like crap, what if it was a really slow egg 😂. I’m sure it’s fine though. I don’t think that will be what makes or breaks us after all this time! I have a busy day today with calls and video meetings but hopefully I’ll be able to check in later! 

    CS/Q:

  • @bows22 your timing looks good even without +1! Hopefully your busy day goes by quickly!

    Month/Cycle: 7/7

    CD/DPO: 31/5-7

    Timing: good either way

    Typical LP length: taking progesterone so we will see!

    Testing: next week

    R/R: Yesterday I was lazy all day long, today I already got out for a run! Balance. I’ve wanted a smoothie bowl since I woke up so I think I’m going to go make that now, and then get some cleaning done around the house.

    CS/Q: I think I’m choosing to ignore that weird drop yesterday now that my temp is back up today haha

    @bows22 I always struggle to get in +1. We only got it this cycle because O was a day earlier than I expected.

    Month/Cycle: 7/7

    CD/DPO: 23/10

    Timing: -4, -2, -1, 0, +1

    Typical LP length: 14

    Testing: still trying to hold out

    R/R: feeling crampy again today so I am trying not to SS because I get crampy every TWW. I'm getting my hair cut today and I am so excited! I haven't had it cut in almost a year, it can pretty much cover my boobs. It's so long and hot and uncomfortable so I'm going to chop most of it off. I'm trying a new salon because they have implemented a lot of precautions. Getting a hair cut with a mask on will be a new experience.

  • @krash_ yay for a haircut! I love doing a big chop every once in a while. I usually will grow it to donate it. Good luck with the new salon!
  • @bows22 Yay for O! I agree that your timing looks great even without +1. I hope your day goes by smoothly!
    @runningoncookies Yay for productive days! Rest days are definitely needed too and balance is important.
    @krash_ Trying to avoid SS is so hard in the TWW, so I feel you. Ever since CD 14 came for me it's gotten harder and harder to not SS. I hope your haircut today goes well! I need to have MH shave mine again soon. I hope the new salon works out for you!

    Month/Cycle: 5/5 unbenched
    CD/DPO: 32/17
    Timing: -5, -2, 0
    Typical LP Length: 14 days
    Testing: Later today if I can get a good hold or tomorrow. Kind of depends on how I'm feeling about things later.
    R/R: I went and got different tests from Target this morning. I'm really just not trusting the wondfos that I have. While this may just be another super wonky cycle for me, I want to be sure. I'm holding out hope until I either pull negatives on different brands of tests or until AF shows.
    CS/Q: Temp is staying up there.

    @runningoncookies balance is definitely the key. Yesterday I basically ate carbs all day, today I'm feeling a salad.
    @ashaislurking I'm frustrated for you! All signs point to the fact that you O'd. There wouldn't be such a clear temp shift if not. I hope the other tests give you some answers!

  • @krash_ when my temp dipped at 14dpo I was -CERTAIN- AF was going to show, but she didn't, and still hasn't, and I just want to know what's going on.

    @runningoncookies sometimes you need to be lazy! What is a smoothie bowl?

    @krash_ have fun getting your hair cut!! It’s going to feel so great! Nice job on the willpower with testing!

    @ashaislurking my money is on, your wondfos are crap. Definitely test later with a different test. Good luck!

  • @bows22 oh I hope so. My fingers are crossed so hard. I'd be heartbroken with another wonky LP playing tricks on me.

  • @ashaislurking I’m so hoping that the wondfos are wrong!! 

    @bows22 smoothie bowls are one of my favorite things EVER. Basically, it’s a thick smoothie that you eat with a spoon instead of a straw, and you can add toppings to make it extra yummy. Mine today was a base of almond milk, blueberries, strawberries, kale, and banana blended and topped with peanut butter granola and slivered almonds. Healthy and refreshing!

  • (Will do my replies next.)

    Likely my last day on the TWW thread. While yesterday there was a hint of pink on TP, today I'm definitely spotting. Will see if AF shows up by 5pm tonight or will hold out until tomorrow. I've got Day 3 labs to do, and since Day 3 will fall either on Sat or Sun, I'll have to go either tomorrow or Monday (Day 2 or Day 4). 

    Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD/DPO: 29/10

    Timing: doesn't matter at this point. :smile:

    Typical LP length: if AF shows up tomorrow, it'll be 10 days, 2 cycles in a row.

    Testing: yeah, so I've been talking a lot about using Proov strips this month and last month to check my progesterone. The Proov strips stayed negative both cycles, though this cycle I definitely confirmed ovulation with them. However, finally yesterday evening I got a message from my OB with my Day 21 (7DPO) blood test to check progesterone and... drum roll... I have low progesterone at 6.7. 🤣

    R/R: had a fertility acupuncture session this morning; felt so zen during/after. Most of it is gone now. Haha. 

    CS/Q: only question is... I've seen some acronyms that are not defined in either of the acronym lists; what's the best way to figure those out?

  • @bows22 timing looks good and hopefully it's not a slow egg! Either way, hopefully you've got enough swimmers in there to make it work. :smile:

    @runningoncookies good for you on getting out and getting that run in! 

    @krash_ enjoy the hair pampering! Hopefully it'll take your mind off SS. 🤞🏻

    @ashaislurking Still 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 for you.

  • Month/Cycle: Four years and counting
    CD/DPO: 28/12
    Testing: Broke down yesterday, BFN.  Now waiting until Jun 27 or AF shows up.
    Typical LP length: 14 days
    Timing: IUI
    R/R: I've seen a couple of people talking about SS during the TWW.  This has been me as well.  My head and my body are working together to [email protected]*k with me.
    CS/Q: I got nothing.

    @ashaislurking FX for you.  Sounds like your wandfos are wonky.
    @krash_ Feeling for you on the SS.  It's been driving me crazy, too.  Everybody I've asked about it says to keep busy.

  • Just checking in 😅. I'll respond tomorrow - assuming my account doesn't go wack again.

    oh my gosh @inthewoods23 I was thinking the same as legallykate and asf0613 and then when I saw you posted here I was like crap she’s not KU....and then when I saw you hadn’t tested yet I got so excited. What a rollercoaster hahaha. 

    @[email protected] feel free to ask on the acronyms! Or be like me and think HIO means “hit it out” for a year
