Re: TWW Wednesday 3/31

  • It feels like Monday instead of Wednesday! Where is everyone? 

    Month/Cycle: 34/??

    CD/DPO: 18/4

    Timing: -2 + IUI, -1

    Typical LP length: 13

    Testing: Early next week 

    R/R: I feel permanently sleep deprived. On my evening walk I found a baby chick who was trying to cross the road (seriously). After some debate I rescued it, which resulted in a full night of only half-sleeping due to its incessant chirping unless I cuddled it! Cute but exhausting. Still recovering today. (I may put pics in the Randoms thread.) 

    CS/Q: Woke up 90 minutes early, temp shows the poor sleep patterns.

    @keikilove Wow! You're the first to post today! Unprecedented! 🤣 Awwwww about the baby chick! Sounds like something I'd have done. What are you planning to do with it? Also, didn't get a chance to respond to your comment in yesterday's TWW re: "flooding the BMB board with research articles" but... yes! We'll BLIND THEM WITH SCIENCE!

    Month/Cycle: 15/15

    CD/DPO: 18/6

    Timing: -3, -1(IUI), O(IUI), +1 (sexanniversary) 🤣

    Typical LP length: 15-17 days depending on when I cease taking progesterone suppositories

    Testing: 12DPO on 4/6

    R/R: boobs are still hurting! Blergh. It's funny, they don't hurt as much when I wake up in the morning which makes me think "oh, okay... I'm getting used to it", but by the time I go to bed at night, I can hardly touch them. Also had a consult with a hand surgeon this morning because I have a long-standing wrist injury that's just not getting better. The good news is that he didn't see any arthritis on the x-ray; the bad news, he couldn't identify the source of my pain and is sending me for an MRI. 🤷‍♀️

    Also, something or someone got skunked in our backyard last night. Since there is very little access to the backyard to humans (you'd need to be parachuted in to get in there), I suspect it was an animal of some sorts and I didn't realize that skunks sprayed other wildlife. Either way, my office window faces the backyard and I left the window open overnight so office currently smells to high hell. Our landlord is dropping by tomorrow for some work that's been done in our garage, and I'll raise the skunk infestation issue with him. 

    CS/Q: temp popped up again, but this being TD, it can get adjusted for up to 2 days laters. Progesterone is currently winning over estrogen.
