Typical LP length:
Re: TWW Thursday 9/16
Timing: -4, -2, -1
Typical LP length: I’m feeling extremely bloated/crampy/PMSy so I’m a little afraid that my body is still regulating from the birth control and I’m going to have a short one again
Testing: I have tests coming today to take with me this weekend but I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to before AF comes.
R/R: The PA that I see at the RE office messaged me yesterday that she wants to go over my test results with an attending before we move forward with a treatment cycle. I don’t know what that means, but I replied and basically begged for this to happen quickly so that I can still do it next cycle but I know they have their own timeline. But if I get AF today like I feel like I will, it will probably be the following cycle regardless. Ugh
Timing: not good enough
Typical LP length: 13
R/R: period was due yesterday; not sure what the hold up is. I suppose since I’m not temping, I could be off a day in calculating O. 🤷♀️ I’m so ready for the weekend to be here. School is definitely going better this week but it’s still a bit crazy and I’m trying not to fall behind everything.
@bows22 fx they get back to you today!!! Or tomorrow latest! I hope af doesn’t come too soon and you still get to have a nice weekend.
@gingermama29 I’m so glad school is going better for you this week!
Typical LP length: 10 days? Maybe. Who knows.
Testing: nah. I did yesterday. Bfn. Now basically WFAF
R/R: Wasn’t sure I’d be posting here today so I held off a little. Just a bit of spotting so I’m thinking af will be here tonight or tomorrow. I just took my dog for a walk, because it’s gorgeous out, and a little kid asked if he could pet him. I love being able to tell people that my chihuahua is super friendly and loves kids! I really lucked out with him! I’ll show him off tomorrow on the furry thread.
CS/Q: temp dropped this am but I did wake up cold (a little earlier than I normally temp). Also it’s probably because af is coming.
@gingermama29 So sorry for CD1. Glad school is getting better. I work in a school and it feels like everyone is getting back into their groove which is nice.
@paytonpedro I'm glad your pup is good with kiddos. Tessie is such a love, especially with kids, but she is a brute and will get excited and jump far too much so we always have to hold her back a bit. She means well lol.
Typical LP length: 13/14
Testing: took one this morning, knowing it's far too early. Going to try to hold off, but not so great with the self control here, admittedly. Also need to grab some not cheapo tests.
R/R: My DH got me a pearl ring for our wedding that I have worn every day since. About a month ago, we were at a friend's fire and I noticed the pearl was missing. I retraced my steps with my phone flashlight and found it! I was so happy but took caution and took the ring off until I can get it fixed so I don't loose it again. I picked out a different pearl ring, with a purple pearl, that I was going to wear in the meantime. This morning I want to cross my arms and scratched up my arm. I looked to see why and the purple pearl is missing! I couldn't believe I lost a second pearl! Luckily this one isn't as meaningful, because I have also yet to find it....
CS/Q: Not today

@paytonpedro I’m glad you finally had a nice day and a break from storms!
@tessiesmom26 I’m so happy you found the pearl! I was glad your story had a happy ending!
@tessiesmom26 omg so incredible you found the pearl from the ring that has special meaning. Sounds like pearls just wanna runaway from you hehehe. Jk. Your pup sounds like our other dog when we were kids. We had an old English sheepdog and he was big and furry and so loving. I miss having a big fluffy dog.
Timing: -2,-1, 0
Typical LP length: 13
Testing: trying to hold off as long as possible. I was going to be dumb today and test but then I woke up with an insane need to pee and couldn’t find the tests so I missed the chance. Lol better that way, save myself a bfn since it’s really too early. Im symptom spotting like crazy ugh. Somebody turn my brain off pls.
R/R: my sister is here for the weekend. I’m so excited. She’s my best friend and I have all these ideas for what to do together and can’t decide hahaha. Honestly we could sit at the kitchen table all day chatting and it would be an awesome day.
CS/Q: can’t think of anything
