Re: WTO Wednesday 9/22

  • Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD: 8

    WAYDTGKU: The usual suspects  :)

    R/R: It's Wednesday! We are halfway through the week friends! 

    CS/Q: Had a slight BBT dip this AM, but went to bed a little bit later than we usually do last night. I need to stop watching TikTok before bed, I get so caught up in that!

    @bows22 - yay for first dose of Clomid, boo for the migraine! Going to be at 8 sounds amazing!

  • @bows22 I hope today is migraine-free.

    @ajsanders-2 Haha, I have avoided tiktok at all costs bc I'm old and crotchety. I'm sure it would suck me in if I had it though :D

    Month/Cycle: 1/1

    CD: 18

    WAYDTGKU: BBT, OPKs, sex

    R/R: Meh. Glad I avoided Teams today but I'll be back on tomorrow.

    CS/Q: Still WTO but at least my chart is looking nice and consistent so I think it will be clear whenever it arrives.

  • @Paturkey, I was so against getting one but then my sisters would continually send me clips, so I join. 
    Me: 34 DH: 33

    EDD: 06/22/22
  • Month/Cycle: 1/1 AL (+ a few more, but I think I might just start over counting for purposes on this board)

    CD: 1… Y’all, I belong somewhere again!

    WAYDTGKU: OPKs, vitamins

    R/R: Very glad to start a new cycle! TTCAL ladies, you can ignore my question from yesterday. 😉 I also have lunch plans with two good friends, so today is shaping up to be a pretty good day. Weird when AF is part of it being a good day, but life is weird right now. My rant is work-related and is just massive frustration with a co-worker who doesn’t want to pull their weight and be part of the team.

    CS/Q: Nope


    @bows22 Yay for starting clomid!

    @ajsanders-2 I am old like @Paturkey in that I haven’t dived into TikTok, but I’m sure I would be greatly entertained.

  • @bows22 I’m so glad you aren’t having any symptoms from the clomid so far! I apologize, I don’t really know, but is it known for symptoms? Hopefully today is a better day and that extra sleep made your migraine go away!

    @ajsanders-2 any time I hear that we’re halfway there… ever… 🤣🤣

    @Paturkey same with tiktok for me. Lol. I’ve totally refused to join in the fun. 🤣🤣 I’m so glad your chart is nice and clear! 

    Month/Cycle: 4/4AL

    CD: 6

    WAYDTGKU: Opk & bbt

    R/R: Am I the only one who has to look on ff everyday (every single day!!) to see what cd/dpo I am? Why can’t I remember this stuff? Lol. Ugh. I had to take my temp 2hrs earlier this morning because I was awake and had to get out of bed. My chart will never be nice lol. It’s rainy here today but I’m fine with it because at least it’s cool out! Also, I have a great fffc and I never think of these on the right day so now I have to try and remember for the rest of the week. Lol. 


  • @abjm0325 - haha, it's addicting! Don't start now! lol. I don't post really that much on the app because i can't figure out half the things these people do!

    @paytonpedro - now that song has been stuck in my head all morning!

  • very much with you all on tik tok! I don’t need another distraction haha 

    @ajsanders-2 I hope your day goes by quickly after your late night haha!

    @Paturkey glad you are getting a break from Teams too! I also will be back to a million meetings tomorrow 

    @abjm0325 I’m glad your new cycle started!

    @paytonpedro I think clomid has a reputation for wreaking havoc. I’ve seen hot flashes mentioned on here and my RE warned me about headaches too. And I would also not remember my CD but I keep the dailies on a note in my phone and copy/paste, so I just advance the day by 1 each day!
  • Month/Cycle: 2/2

    CD: 5

    WAYDTGKU: BD / OPK / temp

    R/R: I’m a month and a half into the school year and for once NOT burnt out yet. I am looooving my new job this year it’s crazy.  I’m also making some dinosaur cookies tonight and excited to get back into decorating cookies!

    CS/Q: this is kind of a serious question, but *how* do y’all wake up enough when your alarm goes off to check your temperature right away but without moving too much and causing your temp to rise?? It stresses me out! Haha

    @paytonpedro yes I check every single day! Even if I do remember, I just want to look anyway lol. 

    @abjm0325 so glad you got your CD1 today, and sorry about your coworker!

    @paturkey ooh nice that you have a good solid chart. I usually don’t ovulate until CD18, hope it comes soon for you!

    @bows22 I hope your day is turning out productive like you hoped. And best of luck with clomid!

  • @singing_koala I keep my thermometer right next to my phone, and just kind of roll over and grab it. Although, to be fair, I don't worry too much about the time, as long as I get A temp, so my chart tends to be a bit "Rocky Mountains" as FF calls it.
  • @bows22 oh gotcha! Well crossing everything that if you experience symptoms, that they’re very mild! But I hope you stay feeling good! That’s a good idea! I usually just copy and paste right from the thread, start typing and then I’m like, crap. 

    @fantasyflyte so glad I’m not alone! The worst part is I look in ff first thing in the morning and I still cannot remember. 😅
    I hope you can get everything done that you need to today! My chart looked similar to that last cycle but I still had a shift and marked my not quite positive as a positive so it still gave me CH’s. I hope it can figure it out for you as well. 

    @singing_koala what a happy bunch of positives you have today!! Dinosaur cookies sound both fun and yummy! You’ll have to share pictures!! As for temping, I leave my thermometer on my nightstand right by the edge of my bed so I just grab it. I don’t really worry because if I do the same thing everyday, my temps will still be consistent, even if it’s consistently off. Lol. 
  • @paytonpedro Now I’m wondering what you fffc is 😊

    @fantasyflyte I hope your “real” assignment goes well!

    @singing_koala That is awesome about your job and about the dinosaur cookies! I don't think I have the patience to be much of a cookie decorator, but it always seems like fun.

    @abjm0325 I already forgot 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

    Ohhhh! Edit to add that I remember! I’m going to spoiler it just in case. Pregnancy related kinda…

    I have bought 3 maternity shirts in the past 4 months in hopes of a possible (healthy) pregnancy, and one was just this morning on Poshmark. I just keep packing them away but like I couldn’t resist a brand new shirt for $6. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

  • @pinkkillersheep I hope you can get yh on the same page and to go for the test. When mh had to do it, we were able to collect the sample at home and just take it to the lab immediately after. I think it took a little bit of the pressure off for him. Also I’m sorry about his problems with his work situation. Mh hates his job and wants to find something else so I understand the fine line between wanting to be supportive and giving them their space to figure it out.
