    CD: 10

    WAYDTGKU: The usual + Clomid IUI

    R/R: Haven’t been able to post for a few days, work and life have been so busy. I found out yesterday that I’m getting a big promotion at work. My role won’t change at all but they recognized that my job has evolved and so they are giving me the title to go with it. There are some perks that go with the title so that’s exciting. In TTC news we started EOD last night per my protocol and I start OPKs today. Once I get a positive then it’s go time!

    CS/Q: I didn’t start temping until yesterday 🤦🏼‍♀️ So only 2 dots so far 

  • @bows22 CONGRATULATIONS!!! That’s so great for you!! And what better than a promotion that doesn’t throw anymore work at you! Can you remind me what you do again?

    WAYDTGKU: Opk & bbt

    R/R: I typed up my response yesterday but was too busy to reply to others so I never posted it. Oops. The festival over the weekend definitely didn’t disappoint! And yesterday I made apple crisp! (Thanks @fantasyflyte)

    CS/Q: I have a Q but I’m going to pop it in the opk thread.

  • @bows22 Congrats! That’s such exciting news!
    @paytonpedro There we’re so many people in WTO yesterday! I almost skipped too. I swear it took like an hour to hit all the tags lol

    Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD: 14

    WAYDTGKU: bbt, cm

    R/R: DH should have some resolution to his work situation today. To be determined if that’ll be positive or negative. Other than that just trying to survive a turbulent time at work for me.

    CS/Q: nope

  • @bows22 eeeek that is so exciting! Congratulations!!
    @paytonpedro yum apple crisp is one of my fall favorites!
    @pinkkillersheep I really hop YH gets his answers from work today. And that you can hold on through your work turbulence. It sucks when work takes over your life and can spill into "home life".

    Month/Cycle: 2/3

    WAYDTGKU: Charting, temping, OPKs, sex, prelim testing for MH and I

    R/R: Officially that time of year where windows are closed but we aren't turning the heat on yet and I still refuse to wear socks. I'm cold 😂

    CS/Q: My temp from yesterday was a direct result of my personality in that "I cannot wait for the beep to happen" took over. Honestly it is stressing me out to temp because my dog can hear the very faint beep and it freaks her out. I think it is because it sounds like her e-collar beep and then I feel bad ugh. I have an OPK question but I'll head over to that board for that. 

  • @bows22 that's awesome about the promotion, congratulations!

    @paytonpedro woo apple crisp! I might make one this week to have when my sisters come over on Friday.

    @pinkkillersheep fingers crossed it's a good resolution and soon.

    @jellie603 aww, poor pup. Does it help to hold your hand around the thermometer to muffle the beep?

    Month/Cycle: 11/11

    CD: 18

    WAYDTGKU: bbt, cm, opks, cinnamon, metformin for me, vit e and c for him

    R/R: So tired. Did 12,000 steps working yesterday. Very glad my ovulation seems to be a bit later this month, judging by OPKs and cm, because I did NOT have the energy to have sex last night, oof.

    CS/Q: nothing super exciting other than my zigzagging temps.

  • @pinkkillersheep I know you’ve been waiting on this resolution for a while now so I’m glad it’s finally almost over. Hopefully it’s all positives for both you and him from here on out!!

    @jellie603 love the house without ac or heat! I feel like that’s when I breathe and sleep the best! Sorry about the beep bugging your dog. Does she sleep with you? I’m apparently a weirdo and temp vaginally (because I’m a mouth breather) but the beep is definitely muffled under the blankets. If she’s under the blankets maybe cover her face/ears for a minute until after it beeps?

    @fantasyflyte wow what a busy day for you yesterday! Hopefully you can take it a little easier today! 
  • @paytonpedro glad you are had a nice weekend! Now I’m wondering if you and @gingermama29 went to the same festival 😂. And I’m a CPA and mostly do financial statement audits. Very exciting I know 😂

    @pinkkillersheep fingers crossed for good news for YH and that things let up for you at work too!

    @jellie603 aww your poor dog! Hopefully she will get used to the beeping soon. 

    @fantasyflyte I hope you have an easier day at work today!
  • @bows22 I had to go back to yesterday and re read the dailies! Now I’m wondering the same thing! @gingermama29 👀 does 🍎🎃 make sense?
    honestly I’m so impressed by all CPA’s. I took accounting as part of my degree (that I don’t use) in college and failed miserably. The only reason the teacher passed me (with a C) is because I showed up every day. I shouldn’t have had a C. Lol. 
  • @paytonpedro yes!!! I was at the same one!! Did you go Saturday or Sunday??
  • @gingermama29  Wow! Crazy! We went on Sunday!!! When did you go?
  • @fantasyflyte and @paytonpedro she doesn't sleep in the bed with us, she is big and grumbly haha! I hide under the covers when it beeps and I try to like cough when I hear it but she apparently has the ears of a bat
  • I’ll be back to respond to everyone

    R/R: so I’m a bit frustrated. My doctor’s office called and have to move my annual to January because of a staffing issue due to exposure to COVID. I understand why they need to move it but I’m struggling to understand why it’s 3 months out. It throws a massive wrench in my plan to talk to my OB about a referral to a RE. I suppose I will just call the nurse’s line and see if I can go about it that way. 


  • @paytonpedro I went on Saturday. That’s so funny that we were in the same place this weekend!
  • @gingermama29 yes for sure! This is wild! Haha! I’ve gone every year as long as I can remember and it’s my favorite! I was super bummed the pie/bread tent wasn’t there this year though. 😞
  • @paytonpedro same! I had my heart set on some baked goods from there. The food stand that does sundaes wasn’t there either this year which was also a bummer. 
  • @gingermama29 i don’t normally get a sundae there because where we get our pumpkins has ice cream, but I did notice the blooming onion closest to the street/front wasn’t there. Huge bummer but also like thanks universe. Lol
  • @bows22 Congrats on the promotion! That's great news!
    @paytonpedro Apple crisp sounds so good!
    @pinkkillersheep I hope it all good things for DH!
    @jellie603 We are at the same place where its cold, but we don't want to turn on the heat just yet. Hold strong!
    @fantasyflyte Whoa at all the steps! Sounds like a busy day.

    WAYDTGKU: Charting, BBT, CM, DTD, PNV, all the acronyms 

    R/R: I'm super negative today and I hate it. Work has sucked lately but I have the day off tomorrow. It's a big day for the family. TW LC

    DS has his preschool evaluation tomorrow. They are going to decided how many days he should be going based on all the services he needs. This mama is a bit nervous to be honest.

    CS/Q: none today.. pretty boring chart right now.

    WAYDTGKU: vitamins, OPKs

    R/R: Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few days. Sometimes life sucks. I have several people in my close circles with Covid (none with serious symptoms, thankfully) and had some crappy personal stuff come up this weekend that made us question the timing of TTC. Still on track for trying right now, but we’ll see if I stick around. A rave is the beautiful weather! Hoping to get outside after work.

    CS/Q: Nope


    @bows22 Congrats on the promotion! So exciting when hard work is recognized.

    @paytonpedro Mmmm, apple crisp…

    @pinkkillersheep Glad your DH will have some closure, but hoping it is positive news for him.

    @jellie603 I also refuse to wear socks, but I have consented to slippers around the house at least.

    @fantasyflyte Nice work on the steps! I feel you on being tired though.

    @gingermama29 That is so frustrating! Three months seems like way too long to make you wait for a reschedule that wasn’t your fault/request. I would definitely call if I were you.

    @tessiesmom26 I hope your big day for your family goes smoothly and that you get to relax a little on your day off.

  • Back to finish tags!

    I updated in the IF thread but I did end up calling and spoke with my OB. I officially got a referral to a fertility specialist and called them. I have a consult appointment on 10/25! 

    @bows22 Congrats in the promotion!! That’s so exciting!! 

    @pinkkillersheep FX for a positive resolution! 

    @jellie603 haha I have some coworkers that have a berry every year that the first one to turn on their heat has to but the other lunch. I love this time of year between the AC going off but not needing the heat yet.

    @fantasyflyte awesome job with all the steps yesterday!! 

    @tessiesmom26 sending positive vibes for your big day tomorrow. Hopefully they’ll come to a decision you’re happy with. 

    @abjm0325 glad to hear that non of the COVID cases in your circles are severe. FX for quick recoveries for all of them! Hope you’re able to stick around.

  • @gingermama29 so glad for the good news!! 

    @tessiesmom26 I’m sorry you’re having a bad and stressful day. I hope you can carve out some time for yourself tonight to decompress and relax!

    @abjm0325 Sorry you’re friends are sick but thankfully none are serious! I’m also sorry you’re having a tough time. Hopefully you and your husband can figure things out and everything works out for you. I’m wishing you the absolute best! 
  • edited September 2021
    Coming back to thank everyone for the positive vibes and catch up on tags. Unfortunately DH’s work thing was postponed AGAIN so I guess we just sit here in limbo for another two days 🙄

    @jellie603 Poor pup! I’d probably be doing the same thing if I were you.
    @fantasyflyte Your post made me check my steps and I’m at half that much haha.
    @gingermama29 Sorry your appointment got delayed but so happy for you that you got your RE appointment on the calendar!
    @tessiesmom26 Sorry you are struggling with negativity. I felt in a similar place last week and am trying so hard to keep positive this week. Yet to be determined how it’ll go.
    @abjm0325 Sorry it’s been a rough past few days. Hope you were able to enjoy some of the nice weather.
  • @gingermama29 I’m so glad you were able to get the referral! And that you won’t have to wait long for the appointment! I’m excited for you!

    @tessiesmom26 i hope your day off tomorrow will help refresh and reset you!

    @abjm0325 I’m sorry that life is dealing you a crappy hand lately. I hope things turn around soon❤️
