Re: TWW Friday 4/30
Me @ Friday...
</div><div>Typical LP length: 13/14</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.

@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. :)

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