Re: WTO FRIDAY 5/21
WAYDTGKU: BBT OPK and stuff
R/R: Im a little down today i just found out another friend from high school died. I mean we’ve not really kept in contact but we were friends back then it is still just sad. Oh and I kept getting very mild, little hot flashes last night. I like to pretend it’s because I ovulated 💁🏼♀️
CS/Q: Maybe I ovulated? I’d have liked to see my temp increase again today but at least I didn’t dip again. Hopefully it’ll rise more tomorrow. I slept AWFUL last night our house was freezing. On second thought I don’t think I did O... I don’t know thoughts are always appreciated
WAYDTGKU: Charting/BBT, PNV, starting OPK this cycle
R/R: So glad it's Friday, yay. Still a little worried (having an anxiety disorder, I worry about everything) because my OBGYN scheduled me for an ultrasound next month for what she thinks may either be fibroids or an enlarged uterus. She also said it may be totally nothing. Either way, she said it's nothing to worry about, yet it's been on the back of my mind.
CS/Q: Is there a particular brand of OPKs that is recommended/liked/whatever? I used Pregmate in the past, and this time I ordered some brand called MomMed, but just curious!

@awello totally understand those anxious feelings. FX that everything goes smoothly for the ultrasound! For OPKs I feel like you definitely have to try a few to see what works for you. the Pregmate ones are not for me - for some reason they don't pick up my surge very well. My favorite for cheapies are the [email protected]
R/R: Very happy it's Friday! Today I'm sending all of our paperwork to the RE so that we can be bumped up on their waitlist in case they have a cancellation. I've been super productive at work this week so that means I can focus on the important things this weekend like my dissertation! Except I'm distracted by the audiobook I'm currently listening to and love so much that I also borrowed the ebook.. oops!
