R/R: So my sisters and I are all going next week to get matching tattoos since we’ll all be in town together! The one who lives out of state has been wanting to get her first tattoo for awhile and we figured it’d be fun to all do together. I don’t think we’re all getting it in the same spot like the picture but this is what we’re all getting:
@daisy0322 feeling any better today? Those side effects sound rough. But a part this weekend sounds like it will be fun!
@mamanbebe I'm sorry you haven't been sleeping well. Have you tried melatonin or anything to help with that?
@[email protected] how was your obgyn visit?
@inthewoods23 ugh, sorry about your SIL drama!
@fanstasyflyte hugs were you able to get in touch with anyone yesterday?
@paytonpedro thank you! I always have extra bags when I walk my dog for that exact reason. It's not often that she poops more than 2x but it's so annoying when she does haha.
@gingermama29 oh i love that! so fun!!! (and pretty!)
@gingermama29 i love that design!
@fameonmain2 oof thats tough, I hope today is a shorter day for you!
@anniemarie887 that's awesome! Good doctors are worth their weight in gold.
@anniemarie887 your WAYDTGKU updates always crack me up 😂 that's good that your ob will refer you now if you want! Although idk if I like 32 being AMA 😂🙈
@fantasyflyte good to hear the SA wasn't terrible news!
Month/Cycle: 2 AL
@fameonmain2 we eat kinda late. I hate when it's extra late at 9pm or later. No time to just relax. I have to go to bed by 10:30 lol
@anniemarie887 sounds like you have a good plan. I had my yearly when we were around 10 months and figured I may as well ask and got to start checking ovulation right away.
@fantasyflyte phew! From my/DH's experience based on the sperm reports from our IUIs and how those improved over 3 months, I'm not sure if DH's percentage of motile sperm improved just from a men's multivitamin but his progression greatly improved - something probably even more important than just being motile. You've definitely got things to work with to help.
@pajamstagrams FX your pepper plant does well!

R/R: Hi all! Newbie here :-) I think I ovulated yesterday (clear VD, ovulation cramps). I have been using the clear blue tracking device. I had a peak 2 days ago (static smiley face). I am a little bit worried because two days before my peak we did not BD. I know the studies say to BD every other day leading up. but my hubby was out of town. Wish me luck, nervous not sure if it worked!
@anniemarie887 it's always great to have proactive Healthcare workers

@pajamstagrams hopefully that moth caterpillar leaves your peppers alone! Rabbits keep eating all my berries and it’s so irritating!
@inthewoods23 oooh yay for new glasses frames! That has to be fun, picking out new ones! Sorry AF stuck around. GTFO AF!
@pajamstagrams hugs thank you for sharing that with me. Also, I'm going to show MH the picture of your mystery pepper to see if he has any ideas!
@inthewoods23 lol I also go to bed really early so eating at 9 is like eating 5 mins before bedtime. Excited for your new black frames!
