Re: TFAS w/o Oct 23

  • What number are you trying for? 3, but first two are adopted/being adopted

    Month/Cycle? Stopped counting

    WTO/TWW? WTO (CD 13)

    Ages of other child(ren)? 5 and 6

    Any thoughts about this cycle? I think we’ll be able to get some good timing, so we’ll see

    Any questions? Nope

    Rant/Rave? I finished making me kids’ Halloween costumes just in time (we had an event over the weekend they needed them for). They turned out really great and I’m pretty proud of them

    GTKY: If you could get rid of any genre of music, what would you pick?
    Probably techno or anything with auto tune 
  • What number are you trying for? 2

    Month/Cycle? 25 months now


    Ages of other child(ren)? 6

    Any thoughts about this cycle? I'm having mixed feelings on this one. I've done Letrozole on CD3 but due to mishaps with my prescription coverage and the pharmacy wouldn't release it to me I didn't start it until CD5. At my apt today I was told I didn't have enough time for things to take effect yet so I'll get a follow up on Fri 😳 but I'm predicting I'll ovulate this Thu or Fri and I wouldn't be scheduled for my IUI until next Mon at the earliest. I guess we can try TI but I'm worried our timing will be off this cycle

    Any questions? Anyone recommend something for hair growth? I hate this thinning  but wanna make sure I'm taking something that'll be safe to continue taking. I've been on prenatals for about 4 months now

    Rant/Rave? Those Kid Fresh chicken meatballs from Target with the hidden veggies 🙌🏼 they are da bomb dot com! 😋 sometimes I hope my son doesn't finish it all so I can help him! They're so good

    GTKY: If you could get rid of any genre of music, what would you pick? Country music, I just can't get into it

    @britters314 yay on the costumes! We did all the laundry over the weekend and I found parts of this costume from last year in there 😆 the gloves from his Mario costume

  • @winterecho FX you ovulate late so everything works out!
  • @britters314 ooooo what did you do for costumes?

    @winterecho I'm not certain, but I think some people do start taking letrozole on CD5 instead of 3. FX this doesn't mess with your cycle! I'm not sure this is safe during pregnancy, but I've used The Ordinary hair serum. I think it has helped a bit but I've never consistently used it. Chicken meatballs sound really good :joy:. We tried the Dr. Praegers broccoli bites a few days ago and I was also happily finishing whatever DS didn't eat haha. Kinda funny to love veggies as an adult now.

    What number are you trying for? 2

    Month/Cycle? n/a


    Ages of other child(ren)? 15 months

    Any thoughts about this cycle? I still hate how heavy my periods are. I think it's the baby aspirin. This might be the last cycle before we TTC but we'll see! I have my follow up with the RI in a few weeks.

    Any questions? nope

    Rant/Rave? it's supposed to be a high of 38 on Halloween!! Yuuuuuuuuck. Which means by the time it's trick or treat hours it's gonna be below freezing. Guess we'll just be bundling DS up in his stroller and not letting him walk around with his cousins.

    GTKY: If you could get rid of any genre of music, what would you pick? I agree with @winterecho that I'd get rid of country. Just bleh. It's actually irritating to my ears sometimes.

  • @inthewoods23 The kids both wanted to be teenage mutant ninja turtles. I made the shirts have fake padded muscles and I think that’s the kids’ favorite part.
  • @inthewoods23 I've been using a spray from Spoiled Child but I'm terrible about being consistent (which it's why I didn't do well on the BC pill) I'll ask my doc since I wanted to check in with her also about keeping up with highlights. Also I hated when it was really cold on Halloween and I needed to be in a coat 😫 

    @britters314 did you take them to see the movie? We took ours and his attention span lasted about 45 min 😅
