    R/R: Rave: Heading to TN for spring break Friday and I am so welcoming the distraction. Excited to breathe some fresh mountain air. This will be my rave ALL week. Rant: *TW in spoiler*
    Not really a rant, but I'm still mentally processing the CP... what a mind fluck. I'm trying to stay positive, but in the back of my mind I'm thinking how many times does this have to happen until one sticks? I don't think I will ever be able to get excited again, the let down is too hard. 
    CS/Q: None

    @misspricklepants. I'm so sorry.  I know we just met, but I was excited for you, too.

    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.

    CS/Q: nope

  • @gingermama29 what a great way to spend the afternoon!  Enjoy! :)
  • @BusinessWife hooray for the SHG being all normal. I love how excited you are about each step of this process. the 4am wake though... ouch! 

    @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.

    WAYDTGKU: double hybrid IUI cycle; lots of vits & supps for MH and I. 

    R/R: Rave! I got my first dose of the vaccine on Saturday b/c I have a qualifying pre-existing condition. My arm was really sore yesterday, but feeling a lot better today. And no fever or anything, but I did - on the advice of my doctor - pre-treat with Tylenol. In other news, Q2 planning is wrapping up at work, and I'm overjoyed... hopefully my week is going to be a smidge more relaxed, which - with IUIs coming this week - will be required. 

    CS/Q: haven't bothered to plug in my temps into FF yet this cycle.

  • @BusinessWife Yay for an all-clear SHG! And good to hear that you have time for the Synthroid to kick in before transfer. 

    @misspricklepants Hooray for spring break! So glad to hear that you have something fun & relaxing to do to help you heal from your loss.💕

    @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. 

    Month/Cycle: 34/??

    CD: 9

    WAYDTGKU: Seriously feeling like @Clever’s twin here: Lots of vitamins & supps for DH & me, lots of meds for me. Hybrid IUI this week. 

    R/R: Rave: Got to the airport super early for my two doctor appointments today, so no travel stress. Looking forward to my monitoring appointment. Rant: Wasting hours in the airport isn’t fun. I tried to get on a much earlier flight but it was full so I just sat & watched it take off without me. 🤷‍♀️ 

    CS/Q: Just 2 little dots today...
  • @acleverusername *TW* loss
    My doctor wanted us to wait 2 months/cycles after my loss before we started actively trying again. I'm in my second cycle now and then we'll do Letrozole again. Yay for your first vaccine dose! I feel so much less anxious now that I'm fully vaccinated!

    @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.
  • lurking from TWW and a day late from a busy work day but @misspricklepants i'm really sorry
