Tennessee sounds like just the thing. ❤️
@misspricklepants I'm so sorry for your loss. Sending so many hugs.
Month/Cycle: 21/2 AL
WAYDTGKU: NTNP this cycle (we're technically benched), temping
R/R: this weekend was really nice! I got to see my best friend in person for the first time since August and also zoomed with all 5 of my siblings yesterday while playing games together. We then spent the whole afternoon outside in the sunshine and warmth. This whole week is supposed to be high 60s and sunny and I am so ready for it. My principal told all the staff to leave with the students at 1:30 today and enjoy the sunshine and I fully intend to do exactly that.
@misspricklepants I bet you'll be counting the days until Friday! I'm sorry the CP is messing you up so much. The positive in all of this that egg and sperm met.
@gingermama29 Sorry to hear you're benched! I missed why that is? Anyways, your weather forecast for the week sounds amazing! Enjoy it. In contrast, it's actually quite chilly in CA right now.
@keikilove I didn't get a chance to reply to yesterday's tag from you. The Rover thing was a really great learning opportunity, but yeah... I'm taking a break after this one goes home today. The bottom line is that dogs are anxious beings and if they're brought into a new home, with new ppl, and left behind their owners... it's gonna take them a while to get used to their new surroundings and during this time, they will exhibit some anxious behaviors.
As for no monitoring while doing medicated cycles, I get you 100%. After you do it a few times, monitoring is just an unnecessary expense. But I'm glad you're getting in this time to see how you're reacting to the hybrid protocol. What are your doses? And yes, we're CD buddies! And also treatment buddies! Woot. I'll post my update to the IF thread.

@gingermama29 Oh, that all sounds so lovely. Enjoy the rest of the nice weather!
@acleverusername Good to hear that you’ll get to recupe (recoup?🙂) from the dog-sitting. What a relief to get the vaccine! I’ve been seriously considering it since we will be benched next month if this cycle isn’t successful. Hope your arm is feeling better & that your week continues to be low-stress! As far as my doses, they were low: I think because 1) it’s my first time doing medicated and 2) because I already have fairly high FSH so no need to blast my ovaries with too much. 5mg Letrozole & 75iu Follistim. Will find out the trigger dose & plan later today.
@keikilove glad you don't have any travel stress but sorry you have to kill so much time at the airport. That's always the worst.
