    Nothing too exciting - helping my Dad rebuild his porch Saturday and then teaching a private class.  Sunday is a friend's baby's baptism.  Should be a filled weekend but not really fun.  I wish we were going camping so I could just sit outside and not think about things for a while.

  • @AliciaGoose I'm sorry.  I totally get it.  I *should* be looking pretty pregnant by now and I have three friends who are due in October (when I was due) and it hurts hanging out with them.  Normal feeling but sucky feeling.  Hang in there.  I'd like to say it gets better, and sometimes it does, but time just really takes away the initial sting, making it easier to cope.  hugs mama.  Have a great time at the beach!

    Month/Cycle
    : 6/4

    CD: 15

    WAYDTGKU: Clomid, charting, PNV, conceive plus, EOD, OPK, crossing my fingers 

    R/R: I have three weeks before school starts for teachers. That's a rant and a rave.

    CS/Q: I'm using Wondfos and it says clearly I'm on the package that a faint line  is a negative result but the last couple of days I've been getting a line that is still not as dark as the control line but a lot darker than usual. My temp is up from the last few days but only like three and not the six that usually indicate a spike. I've also EWCM the last three days when I haven't seen any since maybe January. Charting is supposed to help you understand your body but let me tell you that my body is still a mystery after 6 months. 

    GTKY: Any fun, exciting weekend plans?  If not, what do you wish you were doing? I'm really hoping for a lady Saturday with DH. Maybe take the dogs to the park to find some Pokemon.

    WAYDTGKU: hoping yesterday was O, but still drinking tea because it's yummy!

    R/R: Temp spike this morning, which would make yesterday's drop and today's spike fit very nicely with my normal pattern. FX that was actually O!

    CS/Q: For anyone who drinks both RRLT and green tea, do you continue either/both during the TWW? 

    GTKY: Lots of house projects! I'm painting our spare bedroom this weekend. I've been holding onto it for a year now hoping to turn it into a nursery (which obviously hasn't happened). I guess this is kind of my version of not living pregnant until I am. We're going to put our bed in there when our king size is delivered next week. Then I'm hoping that H is going to build me a rack for our coffee cups! 

    I'm mobile and can't get all of the above to not be green! :/

    R/R:
    Had a full on ugly cry this morning because partner took a steaming hot bath after I'd asked him to shower for the next week or so.  He didn't do it maliciously, but jeeze louise, I've had to make so many lifestyle changes even before pregnancy that it was just really defeating to walk into a humid bathroom (with a sopping wet floor, but that's a whole different complaint). On top of that, I'm super disappointed in myself because I've been eating like garbage (although I've been great about exercise, soooo at least I have that going for me).  Just ugh.

    CD: 14

    WAYDTGKU: BBT, OPKs, HIO EOD soon

    R/R:  Close to fertile window time! Things will be less boring.

    CS/Q: I don't know if this is a question or not, but maybe someone has insight? I did my initial CBAD test this morning to get a baseline for estrogen, since I usually O around CD21, although it's been as early as CD 17. So the test is blinking, blinking, blinking, for what seems forever, I'm waiting for a big, empty O, and then BAM, solid smiley. WHAT? My CM is dry as dry can be, has been since AF ended. I think it's a faulty test stick and will test with the regular CB when I get home (and maybe a wondfo), but I told H that we should bone tonight anyway just in case. His response, "Yay. Forced intercourse again." He doesn't do well when he's under pressure. Even if I do O in the next several days, the sperm from today won't go anywhere, they'll get stuck in the crap CM. Is this a non-O LH surge? Wouldn't the CM be at least somewhat good before LH starts to rise, even it is a non-O surge?



    GTKY: Any fun, exciting weekend plans?  If not, what do you wish you were doing? I'm going to a baseball game tomorrow, which I'm excited for, but I'd be more excited if we had box seats so I could watch from air conditioning. It's going to be a hot, sweaty day.

  • CS/Q: For anyone who drinks both RRLT and green tea, do you continue either/both during the TWW? 
    Hello from tea-land!  I drink RLT daily, including through the TWW.  I've not found any evidence beyond old-wives-tales that indicate it to interfere with implantation/early development, only evidence that it has no effect or positive effect.  

    I only drink green tea during the follicular phase because I think it's gross the way I brew it.

    R/R: I'm feeling optimistic this cycle

    CS/Q: OPK question.  I know you're supposed to take the OPK during the late morning/early afternoon to give the LH a chance to work it's way through or whatever, but I work 9-5:30 in a large office that all share a common bathroom out in the lobby.  I do not want to deal with taking an OPK at work.  So I take one in the morning (8am) and one when I get home (6pm).  Is 6pm too late?  Is it worth the hassle of just taking an OPK at work so I can catch a positive?

    WAYDTGKU:  Charting, just started temping two days ago, don't know if taking ubiquinol counts but it seems to be helping my hypertension...  Also reading TCOYF :)

    R/R:  This week I've been focusing more on starting the house hunt because I sort of feel like I have a little more control over that (than this)...but DH needs to get me his 2014 tax stuff for pre-approval before we can do anything, and there's no inventory and is lots of competition, so that's kind of discouraging too.

    CS/Q:  Not yet...

    GTKY: Any fun, exciting weekend plans?  If not, what do you wish you were doing?  Not fun, but still have to write our thank you notes for wedding gifts - wedding was four weeks ago tomorrow, but we just returned from honeymoon last week - hopefully people will understand the tardiness!  It occurred to me to swing by a couple of open houses (would be fun for me), but kind of pointless if we can't write yet.  I wish I were still on vacation or flying this weekend instead!

  • @RatParade I am more likely to get a positive opk if I test during the day. Like you, it isn't convenient for me to test at work so I was testing before and after. I don't usually see a true positive testing before and after work, but I do see a close to positive and then a fading test line, which lines up with my other fertility signs, so I consider that my positive opk.

  • @RatParade Everyone is different, but I am most likely to get my + in the afternoon, and since I have a short surge it's often - by the next time I test (that night). I would say until you know for sure how long your surge lasts and when you're likely to see a +, it might be worth it to try to get away with an OPK at work. If it's really not possible though, like @LadyMillil said you can still usually see tests getting darker until they're really close to + and then fade and that's a good sign that you had a surge as well.

    @LadyMillil It drives my DH crazy that I actually refuse to take allergy medications because I don't want it to mess with my EWCM! He finally convinced me to use Flonase yesterday after the dentist told me that my sinuses were causing me to have tooth pain.

    CS/Q: has any one else taking Clomid noticed aches? Like when you have the flu, but turned up a couple notches? Today has been a huge struggle for me trying to get anything done when my whole body hurts!

    GTKY: going to work the ticket booth at the jazz and rub festival tonight. I'm entering a pie into the contest, too. :) and tomorrow I'm going to go see ghost busters with my mom.

    WAYDTGKU: Well nothing as of now. were back at it again after a month hiatus.. My class reunion is next week, so i figured we would wait.

    CS/Q:

    GTKY: Any fun, exciting weekend plans?  If not, what do you wish you were.  I think we are just relaxing and hanging out this weekend.  My mom is coming to visit on Sunday so we may have a girls day and get our hair and nails done.

    @Artemis618 , I believe ubiquinol is the better absorbing version of CoQ10.  There have been some small studies that suggest that it improves egg quality in older rats, although nothing is conclusive yet according to what I've read.  That may indeed be helpful to TTC :)

    WAYDTGKU: 
    Charting, PNV, B6, CoQ10, EPO, OPK, Preseed, Mucinex in FW, extracting baby batter from OH whenever he and geography allow

    R/R: 
    OH comes home tonight after being gone all week.  Last week was crazy, but we got to spend it all together, so it has sucked being apart since Monday.  I'm very glad he's coming home.  And even if it's too soon to FWP, I'm looking forward to getting some.

    CS/Q: 
    Nope

    GTKY:  
    Tonight I'm hosting Bunco, which is always fun.  I love to cook for my friends.  The rest of the weekend will likely be spent in the pool.

  • @artemis618 if it makes you feel better, technically the etiquette is a whole 6 months after your wedding (some people say 12) so dont stress, and take your time!
