  • @ReadyForaB it is definitely a mixed bag of emotions jumping back into TTCAL.

    Month/Cycle: 21/2 AL 

    CD: 21 

    WAYDTGKU: NTNP, temping 

    R/R: it's another day closer to break and I'm so excited for pizza and wings tonight! It's a gorgeous and warm day again and I was able to take my chorus outside for a walk again this morning. Haha my thoughts are kinda all over the place here. 

    CS/Q: nope

  • @ReadyForaB the good news is we're here for you as you get back on the saddle :)

    @gingermama29 mmmmm pizza and wings sound so good! We've been on a wing kick for the last week or 2. Yesterday I went out just for a few items and messaged DH "wings for dinner?" and his response was "dumb question lol". There are just some things that are never a "no" having on hand.

    Month/Cycle: 5 AL

    CD: 3

    WAYDTGKU: temping, OPKs, GF/DF diet, maaaybe cutting down on sugar, PNV and other supplements

    R/R: we switched to a new phone system at work today. It was a bit of a headache at the start but things seemed to be worked out now - I can finally hear people on the other end! lol. Turns out I didn't have my input and output device settings right. The last thing is getting the calls to actually go to voicemail. The system seems to be set up like a call center where it rings to the next available person and just goes back and forth between us, never letting someone leave a voicemail. Only when we're all on a call or listed as unavailable would it take a call to voicemail. So stupid. Hopefully they get that fixed. Other than that... yay for Thursday! I had a brief moment yesterday thinking it was Thursday and not Wednesday. I just look forward to next week when we have Good Friday off.

    CS/Q: nothing exciting yet

    @ReadyForaB i've never had a loss, but many of my friends have, i just know from them you shouldn't try and pressure yourself to put a timeline on your emotions.

    @gingermama29 mmmm pizza, one of my oops i forgot lunch treats is a pizza hut personal pan pizza!

    @inthewoods23 yikes! on hold ping pong! hope they get it fixed asap

    Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD: 2

    WAYDTGKU: trying to remember prenatal vitamins, tracking, digital opks

    R/R: edit b/c i pasted yesterdays r/r lol. i'm losing it over here. my rant is my employee who called out monday, was also out tuesday, and yesterday got diagnosed with the flu. so i am overwhelmed! 


  • @gingermama29 it really is!

    @inthewoods23 Thank you.  You have no idea how much that means. 

    TW- Loss and LC mentioned

    @anniemarie887 Thank you.  My situation is maybe a little different in that I always imagine myself as a one and done mom (I have a 4 year old).  We got pregnant unexpectedly in February and after the terror wore off, we were so happy.  Then came the loss.  I see the silver lining in the fact that now we feel ready to try for another. :)

  • @ReadyForaB sorry about your loss. Welcome to the group and I hope your stay is short!
    @gingermama29 yay almost break and double yay pizza!
    @inthewoods we tried a new-to-us wings place last night and my fried chicken sandwich was so burned that I could only taste char. I hope your wings were better than mine!
    @anniemarie887 I'm sorry your work situation is overwhelming right now, it always sucks when you're shortstaffed.

    Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD: 15

    WAYDTGKU: bbt, opks, cm, cinnamon supplements

    R/R: It's SO NICE outside today, but I have a midterm tonight and need to study for it. Sadness. But at least I can hopefully catch up on my sewing and cleaning this weekend since I have very little homework to do for a change.

    CS/Q: slept in this morning and forgot to temp before getting out of bed, but I'm far enough away from O that I'm not worried about missing one temp.
