Timing: meh okay. I was mentally struggling during our window plus O was elusive this month.
Typical LP length: unknown
Testing: Not sure. FF has AF scheduled for this coming Saturday but Premom is saying next Tuesday (a whole week from now). I guess I'll test on Sunday and split the difference
R/R: Got to the lake house for the long weekend and it was great! On Labor Day weekend the lake always has their boat parade. People who want to participate decorate their boats like parade floats and drive around the lake. They toss candy out for kids and some do jello shots or nips for the adults (both were present this year, yay!). There was a "free Britney" float that was amazing - guys and girls dressed as different Britneys and threw the strongest jello shots out 😂
Typical LP length: 13
Testing: not sure when yet, maybe this weekend
R/R: First day of school today. I will likely be posting and ghosting until this evening. My Tuesday and Wednesday class schedule is so busy, I basically get no breaks until my lunch at 1:00 (side note, my lunch is usually an hour earlier in other years… I’m going to be so hangry 😂). Should be a decent day though. I’m grateful for a universal mask mandate in schools here.
Timing: O-1, O?
Typical LP length: 10-11 days
R/R: I actually have a minute to breathe! I have a lot of homework to work on, but at least it's beautiful out today so I can do it outside, which is also nice because I can give my poor face a rest from the mask. Been VERY busy recently, we got a new system at work plus it was a holiday weekend, so it was very busy all weekend at work.
CS/Q: my poor chart. I'm kind of looking forward to having a nice, normal chart next cycle. Although temps might still be a bit wonky because we've got the windows open instead of the AC on lately.
@jellie603 that sounds so fun! Glad you had a nice long weekend at the lake.
@fantasyflyte glad you got to enjoy the nice weather and fresh air while you tackled your homework
@jellie603 Boat parade sounds so fun! I’ve gotta find one of those around me next year!
@gingermama29 That late lunch time would be so tough. I start getting grouchy if my lunch time goes past 11:30.
@fantasyflyte I’m exhausted just reading your update! Hope you had at least a few minutes to relax before diving into homework. Incidentally I should definitely be doing homework tonight too…
Timing: o-2, o-1, o+1
Typical LP length: 11ish
Testing: 12 dpo
R/R: Trying to bring some positive energy to work and I was about 50% successful lol. Started the day well but it ended with finding out we’re short term losing another person, which will have some tough ripple effects on the other team members. But it’s out of my control and at this point I have to compartmentalize to keep myself from having a complete breakdown. I just wish these guys could get a break.
CS/Q: obgyn appointment went pretty well today. Thank you @acleverusername for your feedback yesterday. I’ll spoiler the details.
Also got my CH today as expected.
