Re: WTO Monday 3.29

  • Month/Cycle: 22/2 AL

    CD: 25

    WAYDTGKU: NTNP, temping

    R/R: first official day of spring break! Waking up without an alarm and taking a leisurely shower was an excellent way to start the day. DH and I went and traded in our phones yesterday. We’re officially iPhone owners now which is definitely taking some getting used to (I’ve only ever had android phones). No real plans today other than doing some cleaning/laundry that we’ve been neglecting.

  • @gingermama29 enjoy spring break! DH doesn't get Good Friday off this week but I do so that will be nice getting to chill while he works

    Month/Cycle: 5 AL

    WAYDTGKU: temping, OPKs, GF/DF diet

    R/R: 4 day work week woo! Coworker is at a customer today so I'm on my own. Hopefully it's still a pretty chill day. We're warming up a bit here but in a day or two it drops to 38 for a high. Boo. This is what I hate about spring, it starts warming up, it feels great, but then it starts getting cold again. My late April birthday has had temps near 80, and other times in the 40s so I never know *shrug*

  • @inthewoods23 I do hate that about spring.  It’s going to be 70 here tomorrow and then we’re getting accumulating snow on Wednesday. FX for a chill day at work!

    R/R: I finally got an appointment for a covid vaccine.  I have been going back and forth on getting it.  It is scheduled for Monday so I might TTA this cycle.  I haven't decided yet.  I just know myself and if I get KU I will worry the entire time. 

    CS/Q: not today.

  • @gingermama29 hope you enjoy your break! take that well-earned r and r :)
    @inthewoods23 cheers to a 4-day week - I love those. fx your birthday turns out with the weather you're wishing for!
    @ReadyForaB congrats on your appointment! idk about you but I'm starting to really see that light at the end of the tunnel. whether you continue to TTGP or not is totally a personal decision; I opted not to wait and instead just drank lots of electrolytes and had a steady stream of tylenol and my temp never went over 99.7, but that felt like my "safe zone" for anxiety.
    @BusinessWife eyyy get that vacay going!

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD: 2

    WAYDTGKU: bbt, cm/cp, pnv, opk (2 types this time!)

    R/R: AF was gracious enough to wait until my vaccine side effect day subsided, a good thing because WOW that is no joke. I was prepared for fever and fatigue, was not prepared for the joint pain and muscle aches and headache. and MH is eligible for it as of this Wednesday and I managed to snag him an appt so soon he'll be able to join the vaxxed party :) it is a good day and I am full of energy and idk why but we're not questioning it! no gift horses' mouths today thanks!

    CS/Q: too early for anything

  • Happy Spring break! @gingermama29. Enjoy! 😎

    @inthewoods23 Enjoy that 4-day week! 💕

    @ReadyForaB Congrats on the appt!  Sorry, no advice as to TTA.  I would just call your Ob and see if they can offer any guidance.
  • Glad your symptoms have subsided @chgilmore Sorry about CD1 though. :/
  • @chgilmore you are scaring me! jk (kind of haha)

    @BusinessWife my ob is not much help at all in this department
    TW - Loss

    I recently had a loss and when I inquired about getting the vaccine while pregnant (before the loss obviously)  I was not given a yes or no answer.  Basically I was told, it is an experiment, it is up to you. No guidance whatsoever as far an timing or anything.  So, I am not even going to bother calling with this question.

    @ReadyForaB yay for a vaccine appointment! FWIW, I saw an article the other day discussing a recent study that said the vaccine was highly effective for pregnant women and passed on antibodies to the baby. I’m certainly not a medical professional and don’t expect you to take medical advice from an Internet stranger but I just wanted to put that out there.

    @BusinessWife yay for vacation! Haha definitely save logging in until Monday.

    @chgilmore sorry for AF but glad it waited until your side effects subsided. Was that your first or second shot?

  • @gingermama29 nice new technology is always fun to play with!
    @inthewoods23 yeah, we're in the chilly-week-after-a-70F-week too
    @ReadyForaB nice! we're eligible to schedule appointments in our state on Thursday, I can't wait to get one.
    @BusinessWife nice enjoy vacation!
    @chgilmore sorry you got side effects but yay for YH getting an appointment!

    Month/Cycle: 5/5
    CD: 19
    WAYDTGKU: bbt, opks, cm, cinnamon supplements
    R/R: we got SO MUCH done yesterday. By the time we go to bed tonight, our bedroom should be completely clean and organized, I'm very happy.
    CS/Q: Pretty sure I'm slowly turning into a yeti or something with the way my temps keep just dropping.

  • @ReadyForaB I'm sorry! echoing some others, definitely talk with your medical person if you feel comfortable. I understand feeling anxious about it, MH and I almost benched ourselves too so I get it. 
    @gingermama29 it's okay! that was my second dose, I didn't feel anything other than a mildly sore arm with my first dose.
    @fantasyflyte your temps remind me of a rollercoaster lol! we support a clean and organized house if it makes you feel good!!!
