    Month/Cycle: 4/3AL

    CD/DPO: we’ll go with 17/4dpo

    Timing: -2 

    Typical LP length: 10 days

    Testing: if af is late.

    R/R: I’ve never hoped a cycle wasn’t it, but if this cycle is it I’m going to feel so guilty. Although from what I’ve read online, this medication can be used if the benefits outweigh the risks. Not that I think they do/did, but reading it makes my brain feel a little better. Anyways, the weather today is so much nicer than yesterday and beautifully cool so I hope to spend a bunch of time outside! Mh went into work later today and I wish he would have just went in early/normal time because he just sat here and aggravated me all morning. Ugh. Men.

    CS/Q: both charts are today but ff didn’t want to give me CH’s so I changed that almost positive opk to positive in there and it thinks I ovulated now. So I’m just going to go with it. This cycle is blah anyways.

  • @paytonpedro hugs to you. I feel you on the anxiety, it's hard to turn the brain off when it latches on to something like that. Yay for nice weather!


    Month/Cycle: 11/10

    CD/DPO: 30/11?

    Timing: O, O-1?

    Typical LP length: 10-11 days

    Testing: tomorrow if no period

    R/R: my weather luck ran out and it's dreary today, boo. But yesterday I had a minor event that went well, and I'm excited about stuff that we're planning for this school year so yay!

    CS/Q: had minor cramps yesterday, but still a high temp today, so I'm guessing AF comes tomorrow, but I guess we'll see! It's also possible I O'd a couple days later than I thought, so who knows.

  • Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD/DPO: 25/9-10

    Timing: okay, not great but okay

    Typical LP length: unknown

    Testing: Maybe on Sunday but probably Monday

    R/R: You guys! Do you know what finally snapped me out of my weird mental funk today? My freaking dental cleaning. I haven't been in a while (insert shame here) and just the act of doing something to take care of and better myself gave me the dopamine/serotonin jump that I needed.

    CS/Q: None

  • @paytonpedro LOL... MH does a lot of sitting around in the mornings while I do stuff (take the dog out, feed her, shower, eat breakfast) and it really annoys me too. We're both working from home, so this goes on for HOURS. So, I hear you. Enjoy that cool weather. 

    @fantasyflyte what kind of event? 

    @jellie603 Ah, that's amazing that something as mundane as a cleaning gave you such good feels. But look, don't shame yourself for not having had one in a while. We _have_ been in a pandemic for the last 1.5 years. I haven't gone to the dentist in like 2 years as a result. 

    Month/Cycle: 19/17

    CD/DPO: 32/8

    Timing: High

    Typical LP length: 9-10 days 

    Testing: nah

    R/R: still getting a faint line on Proov so safe to assume my progesterone is sucky today. I actually think I saw pink when wiping yesterday, so I wouldn't be surprised if AF showed up today or tomorrow. That's how it usually goes for me. Oh well, sucky, but... the sooner AF comes, the sooner I get to start another stim cycle. So there's that to look forward. 

    I've had a day chock-full of meetings yesterday and by the end of it I was in a rotten mood. I was supposed to talk to my sister to book her trip to visit us, but ended up having to postpone our convo because I was a crab. And then on top of that I was also really tired and went to bed really early (was asleep by 9!) I'm hooping I'll feel better today. 

    CS/Q: nope

  • @fantasyflyte thanks! ❤️ fingers crossed af doesn’t show up! Sorry the weathers crappy for you today, we traded lol. Sounds like this school year is going to be a great one!!!

    @jellie603 I absolutely love that a dentist appointment got you out of your funk! For me I feel like it would be totally opposite and that I’d rather streak in time square than go to an appointment (I literally make my husband make my appointments because I just wouldn’t 😓) But that’s so awesome! I hope you continue to have a good day!

    @acleverusername i hope you feel better today and have a much better day than yesterday! It’s miserable feeling crabby. But I hope that early bedtime and extra sleep is helping! Also I hope your husband got off his butt this morning and made you breakfast in bed. Hah! Right. Ugh. It’s nice to dream. Lol. 
  • @pinkkillersheep LOVE that story! So glad you got to experience that.

  • Month/Cycle: possibly 27/30ish?

    CD/DPO: 25/8

    Timing: Crappy O-4

    Typical LP length: 13-14 days

    Testing: I hope not, since my timing was terrible and I'm just going to see white sticks! However, knowing me, I'm sure I'll be peeing on something anyway.

    R/R: I got my IVF bloodwork done this week in prep for my first IVF cycle. I'm stalking the lab's portal, hoping it'll all get posted soon so maybe I can start IVF on my next cycle. All of a sudden waiting has become the most impossible thing ever.

    CS/Q: nope

  • @pinkkillersheep that story is amazing!!! It takes me an hour to get ready for work and it also takes my husband close to the same amount of time to poop. So we get up at similar times when we both work. Super duper annoying. 

    @tinfoilhats lol at “knowing me I’ll be peeing on something anyways”. If that doesn’t sum up ttc life, idk what does. I hope you get your bw results soon and everything is good for you to start ivf next cycle!!!
