    Month/Cycle: 20/22 including 2 benched 

    CD/DPO: 24/10

    Timing: -2, O x2, +1

    Typical LP length: 12

    Testing: Tomorrow assuming my tests come today 

    R/R: I have 2 webinars today that are pretty long. They are each only mildly important, so I’m hoping I will be able to knock some things off my to do list while they are happening. I’m pretty anxious to test, even though I don’t have any reason to feel like this is the cycle, I hate not knowing. 



  • Month/Cycle: 4/4

    CD/DPO: 30/10

    Timing: -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1

    Typical LP length: 14 days

    Testing: BFN this morning.

    R/R: Disappointed with my BFN but I know it's still early. This cycle just went so smoothly- it's the first one where I feel like I've timed everything right and not had any weird temps or OPKs that I don't know how to interpret- so I was really hoping that would translate to getting the result I want! I guess now I'm just hoping that even if this one isn't the one, future cycles remain this predictable and easy! I have an ultrasound tomorrow to check for blockages or any other obvious problems that could be impeding implantation, so hopefully that comes back clear.

  • @bows22 FX you can get things done during your webinars! I love multitasking.
    @the_most_happy I hope your ultrasound produces results and answers. ❤️

    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: 23/4

    Timing: -5, -3, -2, -1, O

    Typical LP length: 10-13 days 

    Testing: 8/3

    R/R: Visiting the ILs wasn’t totally awful yesterday, so I’m thankful for that. I have been purging and selling things left and right trying to downsize and better organize my disaster of a house. So I will be focused on that all day.

  • @bows22 hoping your tests come ASAP and you get a good answer from them :). Also ugh, hate doing webinars, I always try to multitask and end up missing stuff, haha.

    @chindimples04 glad your visit wasn't awful! That's cool about reorganizing, I did a ton of that at the beginning of quarantine... and now I have a huge pile of "donate" stuff that's been sitting in my garage for three months because we haven't bothered to take it anywhere since places started reopening. Feels good to get that kind of stuff done though!
  • Month/Cycle: 8/9

    CD/DPO: 23/?

    Timing: Solid. 

    Typical LP length: 9-11 days 

    Testing: Ugh I don't know! My cycles are usually 24-26 days and I can't decide.I did pick up a couple of tests on Monday and they are just sitting unopened on my counter. Trying to decide if I want to test early (tomorrow/Friday) or just wait and if AF is late before testing. 



    @bows22 - webinars sound like the most boring thing in the world to me. Hope you can knock out some other tasks during them!

    @the_most_happy - good luck with your u/s tomorrow!

    @chindimples04 - we need to purge our house so badly but it's so overwhelming. Ugh need to just get on it because I know I'll feel better once it's done and our house isn't a disaster.

  • bows22bows22 member
    @the_most_happy my tests came! I hope we both get good news tomorrow!

    @chindimples04 so jealous of your purging. I want to do that so badly! Maybe if I ever get caught up at work haha 

    @gusgus14 the problem with testing is once you start it’s hard to stop! So I’d wait depending on how many tests you have.

    First time posting here, so not great with filling out yet. 🤦‍♀️

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO:  26/5

    Timing: -5, -2, -1

    Typical LP length: no idea! 

    Testing: First time, so was going to wait until next week. Seems most say to wait til at least 10 DPO...

    R/R: I’ve been enjoying some wine. Not sure how everyone feels about this while TTC but figured if it’s positive, it’ll be 9+ months of no wine so I should enjoy some now.
