Re: TWW Thursday 5/27

  • Month/Cycle: 4/2 2AL

    CD/DPO:  41/8?

    Timing: -3,-2,-1,O

    Typical LP length: 14?

    Testing: I really want to this weekend even though it’s a little too early

    R/R: Hubby has some sort of party at work today so I’m hoping he gets out early. We have lots of plans this weekend but Monday I need to bring desert to bbq. I really don’t feel like making anything this time. My husband’s family is so picky. 

    CS/Q: I am not 100% confident when but I am pretty confident that I did O

  • @daisy0322 oh my gosh, yes!!!  That looks really great!  Curious - what does FF do if you remove the + opk from earlier in your cycle?  (I would always make a note of anything I change like that, so I still have it documented, just not factored into the analysis while I'm playing around...)

    As for desserts, what usually goes over well?  Or what are they picky about?  There is a super easy Oreo dessert somebody always makes that's so yummy, or maybe something easy but classic, like cherry pie?

  • @BusinessWife well they’re picky because MH “shouldn’t exist” in their opinion lol his dad had him young and went on to have a “real family” later he’s always but just barley involved enough to be mentioned. Most of the family is fairly rude to us but we love his aunt and uncle that are hosting and we talk to them frequently. They’re getting better but right after we got married I was legit sitting in the room while they loudly discussed that they thought we were too young, Im no better than his trash mother, it’s only a matter of time until we get divorced, it’s no surprise MH ended up such a disappointment, etc. But there’s people who are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, whole 30, keto, something that is referred to as natural source something I forget, vegetarian, etc. His family is equally as big as mine and both our parents are one of 8 kids. Their family is like a competition to see who can come up with the most selective diet I swear. They’re a special brand but they are getting nicer since we’ve been married almost 5 years. They had an actual meeting about “reconsidering us” a couple years ago 🙄 ugh I’ll get off my soap box now I just get so mad. That’s a good idea though I’m going to try that in FF

  • @BusinessWife   Uhhhh well this is not what I was expecting 😂 I removed that other + and FF all of a sudden got confident about a different dated

    @daisy0322 what are the H and P under Mon? Did you use the CBAD? Did you keep taking regular OPKs?
  • @bows high/peak I use premom the app
  • babyodobabyodo member

    I am soooo sorry, y'all, I have so insanely busy this week. Every time I went to login and catch up, another thing cropped up that I needed to take care of, and before I knew it almost a week had gone by. Nothin exciting to update you with, other than I'm pretty sure O day was yesterday, so I'm just waiting on CH at this point.

    Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: 17/1

    Timing: -5, -4, -2

    Typical LP length: 15 days

    Testing: Not for a while, gonna try to hold out until June 4th or so

    R/R: Rant - So, I think I mentioned it here before, but I started using the Femometer app when I bought my new BBT thermometer and their OPK sticks. Anyway, I don't like how their tests are interpreted. You put the stick into the reader much like with a CBAD, and it gives you a reading, but you can also take a pic of the stick and use the app's smart technology to interpret. Well, the two almost never match each other (the reader vs the app). I found myself just going back to my trusty ol' CBAD instead, so I won't be buying more of the sticks. Just wish I didn't waste my money on the Femometer OPK reader, ugh. Oh well.

    Rant #2: MH got his second COVID shot yesterday and has been feeling like garbage, so that squashed all my plans for one more try on O day. I'm kinda bumming about that. If we don't get KU this cycle, I'm totally blaming COVID.

    Rave - We're going out of town to an AirBnB tomorrow for a long weekend! It's our 5th anniversary present (anniversary was April 15th, but we wanted to go when the weather is warmer). When I booked it, I told MH he could know where we're going or what we're doing, but not both. He chose to know where, so I told him the city & state, but didn't tell him we were staying in an AirBnB cabin on a lake. He's going to love it.

    CS/Q: I was testing twice per day from the 21st-26th and only ever got high/flashing smiley readings, never got a peak, so I'm not sure if I just missed it in testing, but my temp rise shows I've O'ed.

  • Coming back for tags!

    Month/Cycle: 24/2 AL

    CD/DPO: 84/9

    Timing: good

    Typical LP length: 13 

    Testing: maybe this weekend

    R/R: Looks like Italy is going to happen!! We’re planning to book our flights today and I think my sister might be able to come with us too! So ridiculously excited!!! 


  • bows22bows22 member
    @daisy0322 I feel like you need to either remove the other + OPK or mark your other positives. For example if you have a peak on CD33 that would be a positive?

    @bows22 that’s a good idea I’ll try that 

    @babyodo that’s sounds great! Are you going someplace new or have you been there before? 

    @gingermama29 oh have so much fun! I’m so excited for you getting to go to Italy 
  • @daisy0322 to add on to @bows22's comment - you're using the wrong OPK data set in FF if you're recording the Premom high/low/peak readings. You should be using the OPK Intensity data set instead of the monitor/advanced OPK set

    Use this:

    Not this:

    I don't know how different these are in terms of FF's interpretation of the entered data, but I would imagine it has some difference. May be worth updating your chart and seeing what happens.

    @daisy0322 - we've actually never been there before! I wanted to go somewhere neither of us have been, so I chose a fully restored 1820s cabin in the mountains of West Virginia. I originally was going to go with a beach house rental in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, but we've been there before several times and MH isn't much of a beachy person (that's more my thing), so I figured we'd be a bit more adventurous this time around. 

    What's really cool is that the property owners fully restored the cabin using strictly hand tools for woodworking, and MH does woodworking in his free time, so he'll be really blown away by this place. He collects antique wood planes and spoke-shaves, all that. 

    And since the traditional 5th wedding anniversary gift is wood, this couldn't be more perfect. :)

  • @bows22 @inthewoods23 @BusinessWife
    you all are way too kind for helping me this much! Thank you 
    This is without and with Saturday and at this point I’m not sure anyone can really know much else. I think I’m going to end up keeping Saturday just in the interest of testing insanity this weekend. 

  • bows22bows22 member
    @daisy0322 I think it’s either CD33 or maybe even in the last couple days since it looks like you had another surge. Definitely seems like you have a temp shift now though, I’m curious to see what your temps do from here 
    daisy0322[Deleted User]
  • @daisy0322 yeeesh they sounds like absolute nightmares. 

    @babyodo your anniversary trip sounds so nice!! Enjoy! Sorry YH is feeling crappy after his second shot. 
    [Deleted User]
  • @gingermama29  yeah a little bit. Our families in general have their things. I’m just really fed up at the moment 
    [Deleted User]
  • @daisy0322  First off, YH’s family sounds absolutely awful. Y’all may be better off without their toxic energy. Good luck at the cookout, I hope they love the dessert you bring! Also, congrats on the temp climb. It definitely looks like you ovulated now, although I’m no help in pinpointing the timing. My thinking is in line with @bows22: maybe even more recent than what the dips show. Maybe on one of the two days you didn’t temp (CD 36 or 37) or maybe right after on CD39. 🤷‍♀️ 
    PS: I use plain old OPK strips but I still use the + symbol as well as the H and P notations. It’s just for me to keep track of which days were more positive than the others. FF doesn’t like when I use both and sends me a note to be careful and use only one or the other, but I keep doing it. Helps my tracking. 

    @babyodo Sorry about YH not being able to get into it for O. But your timing looks great anyway. And your anniversary trip sounds amazing! Hopefully he really appreciates all the effort you put in to make it special. 

    @gingermama29 Oooooh that is so exciting that the trip is really going to happen! So lucky that your sis gets to join too. A few of my siblings went together a couple years ago and I had serious FOMO. So nice that you all will get to spend the trip together. 

    Month/Cycle: 36/—

    CD/DPO: 19/6

    Timing: Just one IUI on O day

    Typical LP length: 13ish

    Testing: I have bloodwork next week, going to try not to POAS at home before that morning  

    R/R: Rave: I woke up feeling rested this morning! Going to take a little walk in the neighborhood w MH before my online meetings start. Rant: Had a blowout with my sis last night. She’s consistently selfish and self-centered: she was sitting in my house, talking to me only, and absent-mindedly started to talk about an outdoor party she’s planning. She went over all the details and who is invited. I had to ask if I’m invited and her face just went blank like she hadn’t even realized she shouldn’t be telling me all this since I’m obviously not invited based on her expression. I finally let her have it because this is probably the tenth time she’s done something like this in the past couple of years. Then she had the nerve to tell me that I always “guilt-trip” her for living her life. She’s totally out to lunch as far as being polite or respectful of others’ feelings. I’m over it. 

    CS/Q: Slept in for an extra hour today, temp reflects that.

  • @keikilove yes I’m a little worried we missed the fertile window all together 🤬 but at least I ovulated! Hopefully I will again after this one. Tomorrow’s temp will help too. And I’m bringing red white and blue cup cake because F it, my husband is military we have 7 flags outside our house and now the freaking desert will too 😂
     I’m sorry your sister was being inconsiderate. family can be so hard. I agree though that 1 she shouldn’t be talking about parties she’s having and not inviting you to unless there’s a clear reason. Like if it’s all old school friends or the women she works with etc. Im sure your upset I think that’s understandable.   Even with the off temp your charts looking good though at least a clear pattern!
