Re: TWW Thursday 7/30
Month/Cycle: 20/22 including 2 benched
Timing: -2, O x2, +1
Typical LP length: 12
Testing: BFN today, I’ll test again tomorrow
R/R: I actually tested yesterday once my tests came because I was getting wayyy too hopeful. So this morning was no shock. Sucks but oh well. I could possibly only be 10 DPO since I’m not temping so I still have some hope for tomorrow. I have a bunch of little things to do at work and one big thing so hoping to get through the little stuff today and only have 1 thing to focus on tomorrow.
Timing: -5, -3, -2, -1, O
Typical LP length: 11-13
Testing: Monday, maybe Tuesday
R/R: I got SOOOOO much done yesterday! My upstairs is is nearly decluttered (if you don’t look in the closets) 🤣 and fully decorated! ❤️ I’m starting to be a bit more at peace!

Testing: BFN this morning. Not unexpected but I've only tested one other cycle and it was back in March. Kind of forgot how much it sucks to see. Ugh. Not technically out yet but seems unlikely. This is the last cycle before asking for bloodwork and next steps so I was really hoping it would happen.
R/R: Rave: I got to see my mom for the first time in weeks last night so that was nice. Rant: I've had a headache since Tuesday night.
@gusgus14 I’m sorry for the BFN. That’s great that you got to see your mom though! I hope your headache feels better soon!
@bows22 sorry about your BFN but fingers crossed for you tomorrow! That sounds like a good approach to your workload though, I'm kind of in the same boat at my work and think I might also use today to check off the little stuff.
@chindimples04 nice, glad your cleaning/organizing spree is going well! Closets are always the last bastion of clutter.
@gusgus14 sorry about your BFN this morning. I started blood work/basic tests this cycle (which is early considering I've only been at this for four months, but I happened to have my annual OBGYN check-up and I asked my doctor to just go ahead and get stuff started for my peace of mind) so I know what you mean about having that thought of "I'll go ahead and schedule this, but maybe I'll get to call back and cancel if I get a BFP this cycle!" Ugh.
Timing: -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1
Typical LP length: 14 days
Testing: BFN this morning
R/R: Like several of you ladies, I'm not 100% out but it's looking increasingly unlikely that this is my cycle. Feeling more down about it than I expected. Usually during the earlier parts of my cycle I'm pretty good at being able to look at the silver linings of not getting a BFP this time around (little stuff like "now I'll have more time to work on saving money" or "maybe I can take a trip if I'm not super pregnant next spring") but those kinds of upsides always seem to fall flat when I'm actually watching the test come out negative. Blah.
@chindimples04 yay for decorating and decluttering!! I love that feeling!!
@gusgus14 sorry about the BFN and your migraine. I started bloodwork this past cycle and once it was done I feel much more at peace than I thought I would, and glad to get the ball started. The first step of calling is the hardest!
@the_most_happy sorry for your BFN. I've done the same thing with the silver linings and some cycles it helps but others are really tough.
Typical LP length: 11-14
Testing: BFN Tuesday @13dpo, WFAF now
R/R: had a great beach day yesterday and AF didn't show up thankfully! I didn't do a great job with sunscreen application though and got a bit too much sun. Home today with a list of calls to make and work to do so trying to get through that! We watched the Kimmy Schmidt movie last night and will watch again tonight since it's a choose your own adventure type movie- it was neat how they did it!
CS/Q: temp drop yesterday, RHR has been dropping, and I didn't temp this morning.
Blerg, just in case anyone is wondering about my ultrasound appointment that was supposed to be this morning... they totally lost it on their schedule so it didn't end up happening. I tried SO HARD to avoid this specific outcome because I made the appointment through a non-traditional communication channel (my doctor's office has an online messaging portal and I ended up making the appointment at the same time I was asking a nurse about an unrelated question) so I literally got the person I was talking to to state in writing that the ultrasound appointment was confirmed and I didn't need to do anything further... welp, turns out she didn't pass that along to the right person because I wasn't on the schedule at all. So now they don't have availability for over two weeks, which isn't a huge deal but it's still a pain. And of course they tell you to drink a ton of water before your appointment and you aren't supposed to pee, so once we ran into issues and delays in figuring out what why I wasn't on the schedule I knew I was in trouble on that front because I was about to explode, haha.
