Re: WTO Thursday 9/9
WAYDTGKU: OPKs, BBT
R/R: Whew this week flew by. I’m technically off tomorrow but may have to squeeze some work in because 3 days in a week is not enough time. But I’ll definitely do it from home so it’s nice to be the last day this week for waking up early. DH is golfing after work so I’m looking forward to a lazy night on the couch eating leftovers!
CS/Q: a bit messy but today has to be O day I’d think.
WAYDTGKU: cm, cp (still learning this one), dtd
R/R: someone needs to come tell these high 80s/low 90s temperatures and their high dew points to go away. We’re approaching mid-September, I’m ready for those perfect low 70s /no humidity days!
CS/Q: for those of you using opks, what brand do you use/prefer? I saw Amazon has some that are a lot more in a pack than what you find at Walmart or target etc.
Hi guys, I will join you here....
Month/Cycle: I guess we can consider this Month 9 but cycle 3. *TW* I had a suspected EP in Jan (RE thinks it actually was a chemical) and a confirmed EP from April in my left tube. Both treated with MTX so I have both tubes still. *End TW* I had to wait 3 months before resuming trying so here we are, again finally. It's been a really tough year.
WAYDTGKU: What am I not doing is the question. I had an HSG last month and got the all clear. I also officially have an RE who is willing to do a monitored natural cycle for a few months to try and catch a right sided O to avoid my left tube. I have been doing lots of things while waiting for this time to come but my favorite has been acupuncture. She's been zapping my right ovary for weeks....lol. I find out if we are a 'go' or not this cycle tomorrow via u/s. Other than that I have been using OPKs.
R/R: Annoyed that I am feeling 'action' on my left side. Hoping its just from my prior issue and not actual ovulation there for a second month in a row. Pray for my right ovary pls.
@boymama2018 hi! I’m glad you are able to get back to TTC and it sounds like you have a great plan. I said a quick prayer for that right ovary!
@hgsurvivor we've had the last couple days in the 70s and randomly on Saturday we're supposed to be nearly 90! Ugh. The cooler weather has me so ready for fall! For OPKs I've been using Premate brand. I like that the stick is fatter than other brands.
@boymama2018 that's great that your HSG was clear. FX you get the green light on the cycle and it's on your right side!
