Re: TWW Friday 4/30

  • @BusinessWife I was about to kick-off this thread, so thanks for beating me to it!

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD/DPO: 33/12

    Timing: fine

    Typical LP length: 14???

    Testing: haven't today

    R/R: Rave: it's FRIDAY and we get to see lovely friends this weekend!! Rant: Spotted twice yesterday AM and nothing since. First cycle is a weird time of having no idea what my normal is so I'm the shrug emoji every day.

    CS/Q: Nope

    Me @ Friday...

  • Goooooood morning, beautiful people! TGIF! 
    Month/Cycle: 35/I forget 

    CD/DPO: 19/6

    Timing: -1 + IUI, O 

    Typical LP length: 13 

    Testing: Not sure. May actually wait for AF this weird cycle instead of wasting tests. 

    R/R: Rave: IT’S FRIDAY!!!! This has been such a long week! Also, I had an interview yesterday that went really well for a job a few months from now, and I got the offer immediately so that is a relief. Rant: I’ve just been tired & swamped this week, not able to exercise as much as I’d planned, so feeling kind of yucky about that. Today is a new day...

    CS/Q: Such a weird chart this month! Also the worst I’ve done in temping in a long time.

    Month/Cycle: Treatment 1 / Natural FET<div>
    </div><div>CD/DPO: CD22</div><div>
    </div><div>Timing: yes</div><div>
    </div><div>Typical LP length: 13/14</div><div>
    </div><div>Testing: lol</div><div>
    </div><div>R/R: We got switched to a different role yesterday, and our training doesn't load until Monday, so we have an *almost* day off, officially. (Just have to check in periodically to keep an eye on emails).  But I have been enjoying doing some extra random trainings, so I'll still do some of that, but it's nice to take the pressure off.</div><div>
    </div><div>CS/Q: @acleverusername I guess I'd rather not say when specifically, gives me a little more privacy in a way?  and lets me take some time to process - whatever the case may be.  That way I don't have the pressure of the whole board waiting on the edge of our seats for my beta results...  But of course I will share when the time comes!!!  From previous experience, the trigger takes FOREVERRRRR to get out of my system, so suffice it to say, I'm in that extended period of testing purgatory where there's almost no point because the trigger takes THAT LONG to leave. :/ I read somewhere HCG has a 29.5 hour half life, [ETA and I calculated a whole mini timeline for that accordingly], so not sure how accurate that may be, but I'm trying to use that information to help me hold out.  This chart is always fun, too.

  • @keikilove Congratulations on the job offer!  How similar or not will it be to your current job?  Hope you get some rest this weekend and feel better. 

    @beakay8 no problem!  Glad AF stayed away so far... Maybe you'll get lucky.  Hope you enjoy a well-deserved visit with friends this weekend. :)

    @beakay8 Sorry I missed your check-in, we must’ve been posting at the same time. If AF hasn’t shown yet, maybe you’re gonna get lucky on your first attempt! (I’m a totally optimistic enabler. Just ignore me.😉) Enjoy your weekend with friends, that sounds so fun.

    @BusinessWife LOL at your timing! I’ve been wondering the last few days about your transfer date. But your explanation makes total sense about keeping things quiet right now.💗 I’ve learned to hate the feeling of knowing others are waiting to hear my update. I have one friend in real life who has tried to keep up with all my transfers & IUIs, has always asked when I’m doing treatment,  and has sweetly been excited & inquisitive waiting for results after every one. I finally stopped telling her when I had appointments because it was too much pressure & felt a little invasive. Anyway, enough about me. Best of luck to you in this waiting time!!💕💕 As for my job offer, thank you for the congrats. It is somewhat similar to what I do now: I teach adults online and the new gig will be teaching adults in person. I keep it vague about work on here because I’m from such a small place.😉

    @acleverusername Girl, where you at? 😄

    @keikilove Congrats on the offer! Such an amazing feeling to get an offer right away as opposed to sweating it out.

    Month/Cycle: 6 or 7/1 AL

    CD/DPO: No idea since AF has been messed up/6 DPO

    Timing: -2, O, +1

    Typical LP length: Usually around 17/18 days.

    Testing: I will next weekend if AF doesn't show up.

    R/R: Rave, of course, is that it's Friday! Woo! Rant is that I have relatives coming to visit (all fully vaxxed) and our politics are, shall we say, polar opposite. So hopefully there will be no talks of politics...although we do have a sign on our door that I am sure we will raise their eyebrows, but the "shit-stirrer" in me wants to leave it up.

    CS/Q: NATM

  • @keikilove Congrats of the offer! That's so exciting!! I don't mind optimistic enabling lol. I obviously wouldn't be mad about nailing it (😂) on the first try but I'd be hella surprised. I do have a cervix that's pretty sensitive so spotting can happen and be unrelated to anything cycle-wise for me. 

    Took today's pregnancy test and BFN. I'll test again Monday or Tuesday if no AF this weekend.

    @keikilove CONGRATULATIONS 🍾 🥳 I think I remember you talking about how you really wanted this job.

    @beakay8 Oh hey! You're still here! Hopefully you get some clarity on the cycle soon. 

    @keikilove congrats on the new job! So exciting! The biggest question I have though is... are still still going to keep your current 2 full time jobs plus the 2 contracts?! I also have a friend who is sweetly inquisitive about all of my treatments and would message me when she knew I had appointments, etc. And I had to stop telling her too. I do appreciate her following / supporting my journey so closely, but it is taxing & overwhelming to have to update everyone all the time. 

    @BusinessWife I totally respect your desire for keeping some things private; Lord knows that we disclose enough on here anyways. Thanks also for the graphic. I'll need to share it with MH so that he understands what's happening when the time comes. 

    @fifilala516 hey there fellow shit disturber! Lol. You should add another sign that says "my house, my rules" and then smugly remind them of it when someone crosses the line. Anyways, I talk a big talk but I'm not sure I'd be able to do the same. Plus, karma... 

    Month/Cycle: 16/16

    CD/DPO: 24/4

    Timing: -3, -1 (wasn't really into it this month given IVF next month)

    Typical LP length: 15-17 days depending on when I stop progesterone

    Testing: hcG micro-dosing until 10DPO so not sure it'll be worthwhile to test until 14DPO

    R/R: I'm jumping on the "It's Friday" rave. This has been the longest week. I honestly woke up on Tue morning thinking it was the weekend. Having a dog around is lovely, but we're having to redefine our routine which is exhausting. This weekend I'm meeting a friend from my fertility therapy group (she and HH are coming over to hang in our backyard with their dog as we'd promised to watch their dog when they go to HI in May). I'm so excited to meet one of the ladies in person! MH also has his 2nd vaccine dose on Sunday and it's the Moderna one; I've heard of many ppl feeling really shitting after the 2nd dose of Moderna. And MH is a typical "man cold" kinda guy so I'm sure I'll have to find ways to entertain myself on Sunday. 

    CS/Q: I did get around to replacing my TD battery, but somehow the sensor didn't work overnight. I'm going to try it again tonight, and if there are still issues will be emailing the company and basically asking for a refund since I paid extra to be able to return the device within 1 year. For now, enjoy my 2-day old chart; I even had to change the detection method to OPK because I don't have temps for the last 2 days. 🤷‍♀️
