Typical LP length:




GTKY: If you were at an amusement park, where would we find you? (specific kind of ride, concessions, water park, etc.)

Re: TWW Fri-YAY 7.23

  • Month/Cycle: 14/1AL

    CD/DPO: 27/4

    Timing: good

    Typical LP length: 10-11

    Testing: next week

    R/R: Done with summer school means I got to sleep in this morning! That was glorious. Not a ton happening today, MH is away and I have to tutor this afternoon, so I'm going to prep for that now and then try to clean this place up a bit. Not really trying to get a crazy to-do list together, just going to focus on the relaxing :)

    I'll be wherever the water park is! I love being in the water, I'm usually the only one out of my friend group in the water at the beach... but luckily MH loves the water too!
  • @fameonmain2 Yay for being done with summer school!!! I’m glad you are focusing on relaxing! 
    I also love the water but the older I’ve gotten, getting my hair wet is such a hassle so I sometimes just avoid it all together. And it has to be HOT for me to want to be in water. None of this 75 degree crap we’ve had all July here. 😑

    Month/Cycle: 2/ 1AL

    CD/DPO: 19/4dpo



    Typical LP length: 7-9

    Testing: nope. 

    R/R: last night was so much fun! We ended up at a friends house for a fire after the concert. Mh is a volunteer firefighter and there was a fire at 3 am so he literally slept 2.5ish hours last night, and told me he was going to call in. Well I wake up and he’s just getting home and didn’t call in, so he just went into work a little late. 😑 I was pretty disappointed. I was excited to spend the day with him but nopeee. And now surely he’ll be such a joy later. 🙄

    ok I’d be where the food is. Haha. I only go places with good food, like literally we book vacations around food and restaurants. Haha. We’re all about trying and tasting new things.

  • @paytonpedro I love that you plan around the food! We are not like that and always end up scrambling to figure out what we’ll eat haha. I hope YH is not too much of a grump later, glad you had a nice night 😊

    Month/Cycle: 1/1 (long time to get cycle back)

    CD/DPO: 34/14 OR 34/13 (more below)

    Timing: good-ish

    Typical LP length: unknown

    Testing: constantly. It's such an ordeal too; my grocery store keeps them in a locked case so it's like a parade when I get more lol.  Today, I saw a BFN on my Rapid Results test.  I think either I'm not pregnant or I ovulated a day later than I thought.  Will do one more FRER today.

    R/R:  Whyyyyy do I do this to myself? I even feel crazy typing this all out, really need to lay off the testing.

    GTKY: If you were at an amusement park, where would we find you? (specific kind of ride, concessions, water park, etc.) I love a rollercoaster!

    @paytonpedro - I've definitely rocked a shower cap at Disneyland. Strong recommend!
    @fameonmain2 - Glad you got to sleep in and hope more relaxation is coming your way soon!

  • @agesandstages

    sorry the testing is stressing you out. Just a gentle reminder that any talk of possible positive results isn’t allowed on the board

  • @fameonmain2 Thank you - correcting now!
  • @fameonmain2 congrats on being done with summer school! No more until August now? How are you doing with exploring career change? PS I also love being in water, but not so much pool water. At the beach, I'm definitely in the ocean / lake. 

    @paytonpedro Sorry that YHs work plans got disrupted, but so glad you had a good time at the concert / after. Also, please give me 75 degrees any time... It's been a steady 57 degrees in SF all summer thus far. 

    @agesandstages Argh, I hate it when they lock the PG and even OPK tests (why OPK, I don't know...) at stores. That's why I buy mine online. No need for shame parades. 

    Month/Cycle: 19/19

    CD/DPO: 28/5 (or 28/6 according to FF; FF is wrong.)

    Timing: n/a

    Typical LP length: n/a

    Testing: n/a

    R/R: I started back with my acupuncturist today (I see her whenever I have treatment; so I've booked 5 session between now and egg retrieval), and she did a tongue check (in Chinese medicine, areas of the tongue represent different organs; and depending on color, it can reveals issues with organs), and for the first time ever, she said that my tongue looked great. Lol. MH thinks all of this is "woo woo," so enjoy telling him about all of this, because it makes him roll his eyes hard. Luckily, he's in the camp of "if it makes you feel good, and could potentially have a positive effect, then do it."

    I have my first monitoring appointment this afternoon and I'm so excited! I've also been doing pretty well with injections so far; no bruises yet! (But only 3 days, so... )

    CS/Q: Nope. Temp drop a bit today, so I'm hoping that means E2 is rising. 

    GTKY: If you were at an amusement park, where would we find you? (specific kind of ride, concessions, water park, etc.) You'll find me in a bumper car!
