@inthewoods23 I feel you on the postponing groceries to a severe degree. We've been setting some personal records in my household this summer.
WAYDTGKU: bbt, opk, cm
R/R: Randomly saw cm today so I'm wondering if my body tried to O, failed, and is now trying again. Somehow my bbt is dropping and consistently below 97 despite the fact our AC is broken and it is literally 85 degrees in the house currently. Incidentally the lack of AC is also my rant for the day because it's almost 100 degrees outside and it is so frickin hot.
CS/Q: Apologies if I do this wrong, this is my first attempt to post an image. Feel free to correct me! The times I recorded early on are probably not all correct, but for the most part bbt's were taken between 5:30 - 7:30.
I also hear you and @inthewoods23 on not going shopping-its been so hot/rainy I haven't wanted to eat anything so I just don't buy anything and we eat out too much.
@wisewitch222 welcome! And awesome that you saw a def O and a good length LP in your chart!
@fantasyflyte I hope its not Covid and you feel better soon! I don't even know if its easy to get a test in my area anymore, and if they are free, especially if you're vaccinated.
Has anyone had a test since the vaccines came out and have you noticed any difference in obtaining one?
@pinkkillersheep your chart looks like my last one, and I had ovulation on CD 30... (Also average 35 days on FF)
@SmashJam MH came down with a fever over memorial day weekend after he had been fully vaccinated for two months. He made an appointment at Rite Aid for the next morning, but didn't get his results for two days (negative), but that might have been because of the holiday. Also, good luck on your beach day! About two weeks ago I decided I was sick of looking at the radar and we just started doing things regardless, and it's more fun )
@SmashJam I’m an RN in a COVID vaccine/testing clinic where I live and I haven’t seen any changes with availability or anything. We slowed down for a minute with testing but now it’s starting to pick up again since people are more wary of the Delta variant.
