Re: TWW Wednesday 2/24

  • Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 24/8

    Timing: -4, -2, O

    Typical LP length: 13-14

    Testing: I tested this morning, BFN but it was expected. Just want to feel like I’m doing something. The excitement will die down I’m sure lol

    R/R: feeling sooo out of it/disoriented today. Like, I can’t focus and keep making all these little mistakes and not exactly dizzy but, idk unfocused I guess? DH was feeling this way for the past few days so I wonder if it’s some strange bug 🧐

    CS/Q: got a temp spike but not sure if it means anything. Proud of myself for not looking into it too much 😂

    EDIT: fixing dates that I messed up

    I've been doing this for the last two days but I'm obsessive so hey:
    (Potential TW: ranting about symptoms and tests a little, no pics of those though, obvs)

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: CD28, 12 DPO (going with the apps)

    Timing: -5, -2

    Typical LP length: 14

    Testing: it is official, I am obsessive about POAS. can't tell if my eyes are playing tricks on me, can't get anything on camera, can't tell if I just need to wait. Getting a BT tomorrow morning.

    R/R: definitely need to rant. I feel like my body is gaslighting me. I'm feeling all these symptoms that feel VERY different from PMS but I also don't know if I just want this so badly that my body is conjuring symptoms that are different. I'm going to talk to my midwife about it, and I know I just need to wait, but has anyone had similar experiences of, frankly, feeling nuts like this in the TWW? Or feeling like your body is giving clear signals? 

    CS/Q: I think even my temps are gaslighting me at this point (pls tell me if I did the spoiler right?)

  • @chgilmore I don’t think you need a TW for talking about symptoms and taking tests. That’s kind of expected I think lol I definitely know what you mean. I’m in a similar boat where I’m SS every twinge and every tiny bit of nausea, and every “wow that’s a strong smell”, but because it’s my first cycle trying, I’m kind of allowing myself to be excited about taking tests early and analyzing symptoms BUT I will say, the only reason I’m allowing myself to do this is because both DH and I are genuinely not expecting to get KU for a few months. In fact, we’ll be more surprised if we DO get a BFP this cycle than a BFN because we know the odds. So when I take these tests and they’re negative, I’m not at all bummed by it because it’s what I’m expecting to see, if that makes sense lol also I noticed when I just allowed myself to be excited without sounding like I was being crazy, it kind of stopped/slowed down lol as long as you’re not going to be super heartbroken if you get a BFN, allow yourself to be excited, this is all new to both of us! If you do think you’ll be really sad about a BFN (which is completely understandable and valid), just ignore me and listen to the advice of the ladies who’ve been on this ride longer than I have lol I hope this doesn’t come across as a long winded way of saying “just relax” because that’s not my intention but more what I’m trying to say is allow yourself to feel whatever it is you’re feeling

  • @jackie_dunny thank you so much for this, it was exactly what I needed :) I don't know anyone IRL in our position so having a fellow "newbie" totally getting it feels good. reminding myself of the odds does help, I don't think I'm genuinely expecting a BFP this cycle either because of that. I also really appreciate the reminder to let ourselves be excited for as long as it feels fitting

    ...also I know I need to "just relax" xD
  • @chgilmore me!! I SS'd so bad last cycle (#1) so this time I'm not logging symptoms. It's very freeing! Seems like a common issue when you're in cycle #1 of TTC. Also, I don't plan to POAS until I miss AF so I know if it's negative, it's negative, and there *shouldn't* be any squinters at 14DPO. Ask me again in 4 days if I'm still feeling that way 😂
  • Hi all! I did the newbie into last week or the week before and then went MIA bc of the weather and major work issues, so hiiii again!

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD/DPO: 21/10

    Timing: 0/+2

    Typical LP length: 14

    Testing: not yet, maybe tomorrow? 

    R/R: I bought OPKs for this cycle, I did the digital... and of course dropped the damn reader in the toilet. So my timing is best guess based on a pretty routine cycle, knowing other signs. We’ve been casually trying for #2 since December. 

    CS/Q: nada 

  • @anniemarie887 Welcome!  I hope your stay with us is short!

    Re: SS, I totally feel ya.  Trying not to do it myself right now but it's hard not to.  Such is the TTC rollercoaster!  But @jackie_dunny you are wise!  Whatever you are feeling in this moment is okay, and it's okay if what you're feeling changes 5 times before lunch!  AFM, I find it better for my mental health not to track symptoms, and not to test too early.  

    Month/Cycle:  13/13

    CD/DPO:  26/8

    Timing:  IUI so perfect

    Typical LP length:  12-14?

    Testing: Trying to hold off still.  Ideally I'd like to wait until 14 dpo which would be Tuesday.  

    R/R:  It's been a much slower week at work so I'm very grateful for that!  Using other distractions this TWW rather than social media, and limiting the phone time has helped.  I finally went back to the library for the first time in a year pretty much, so I've been doing some more reading for fun.  Reading some interesting stuff about foods for fertility, I always love nutrition info and it feels helpful without adding stress!

    CS/Q: no questions
