Re: WTO Tuesday 10/26
Month/Cycle: 2/2 AL
WAYDTGKU: OPKs, vitamins
R/R: Sorry I've been MIA for a few days, but I had a wonderful weekend with my DH. We were only gone to a nearby city for about 24 hours in total, but it was so nice to relax and spend that time with no agenda and good food. I took today off work too, so it's extra nice to get to catch up on some chores and things before heading back to the grind. Trying to psych myself up to go on a run later!
Edited because words are hard.
WAYDTGKU: vitamins, acupuncture, still gotta go buy OPKs
R/R: GAHHHHHH Adele announced two nights at Hyde Park next summer, looks like i'll be getting up at 3am thursday to try and snag tickets! i was fortunate enough to see her March 2016 and June 2017 (her last live performance!!!) in London. happy early 35th bday gift to meeeeeeeeee

WAYDTGKU: bbt, cm, opks, cinnamon, metformin for me, vit e and c for him
R/R: super dreary here today, we have a big rainstorm and it's supposed to get windy. School is calming down a little, which is good. And I started my sister's Christmas present, it's going to be a Nightmare Before Christmas quilt, and it's gone much easier than I anticipated (progress pic in spoiler). And it's also super fun and I feel like I'm beginning a new obsession, especially because quilted stuff is great to use up small scraps that I have left over from mask making.
CS/Q: actually remembering to temp, and hoping that O is coming a day or two early this month so I can avoid missing the best days if I feel bad after my covid booster Friday.
@fantasyflyte That quilt looks amazing!
Oct '21 somewhat improved AMH (.51) and significantly improved FSH (8.9). Maybe it's all the pills I swallow.
