Typical LP length:
Re: TWW Thursday 4/29
Typical LP length: 14 days?
Testing: BFN, and that's me done testing this cycle.
R/R: April remains the worst and I'm glad May begins on Saturday, even if it does begin with my period starting Sat or Sun.
EDIT TO ADD: Bright red spotting now, so that's gonna be me out. I'll pop into WTO tomorrow, I'm guessing, when flow hits.
Month/Cycle: 35/lost track
Timing: -1 + IUI, O
Typical LP length: 13
Testing: IDK, maybe holding out for AF this time
R/R: Rave: It’s a beautiful day & I’m going to try to squeeze in a quick walk before work. Or maybe a nap since I had to be up so early for a separate work meeting. No rants today
CS/Q: Temp dropped a lot, which isn’t normal for me at this stage of TWW. This whole chart is wacky this cycle. Heart rate dropped a lot too, so not feeling hopeful.
@keikilove hayyyyy! I guess it's just you and me now lol
Month/Cycle: Treatment 1 / Natural FET<div>
</div><div>Timing: Hopefully spot on...</div><div>
</div><div>Typical LP length: 13/14 days</div><div>
</div><div>R/R: Work is re-skilling us into a new role, just when we got set to start up, Monday we go back into training. I really don't mind, I like gaining new skills, so I guess we just have to stay flexible! Should be an interesting learning opportunity.</div><div>
@keikilove @BusinessWife I'm here! I'm here!
@keikilove sorry you're not feeling very confident this cycle. Have you figured out what hormones drive RHR? I haven't as of yet.
@BusinessWife when did you transfer?!
Timing: -3, -1 (not the best, but whatever)
Typical LP length: 15-17 on progesterone which I'll be taking this time in order to stretch out my LP until my RE visit.
Testing: Not sure how I'd do that since I'll be doing hcg micro-dosing.
R/R: late checkin today because of work shenanigans. Happy to be on the flip side of O since RE visit is just around the corner! Yesterday I spent a good portion of my day picking out hashtags to use on our dog's IG page. I've gone full IG dog parent crazy! Haha. Started befriending other dogs' on IG.
CS/Q: I had to change battery in my TempDrop and I got exactly 66.67% through with the task: removed old, better and purchased a new one; but I have yet to install it. TL;DR: I didn't temp last night so will skip sharing my chart today.
