WAYDTGKU: Temping, PNVs, CoQ10, vitamin D, avoiding soy, trying to schedule an MRI for my ovary situation.
R/R: I was really depressed all weekend. I'm trying to figure out a way to come out the other side and looking to make
cycle 7 count (with my cycle 7 amigas @Dinosaur and @wabash15).
CS/Q: I'm thinking about my CM situation. So I have days and days of fertile CM (9 days of watery and EWCM last cycle, 8 the cycle before), and my EWCM continues after O typically for a day or two, and then I often have it again on 3, 4, or 5dpo. I know EWCM is caused by estrogen and my short luteal phase is caused by insufficient progesterone. There must be a connection, right? Any ideas? Alternatively, should I be HIO whenever I see EWCM even after temp shift? I just want to do something different this cycle and see if it works.
GTKY: Every Christmas morning growing up, we had egg bake casserole with sausage and green chiles. Yum!
@Adirat - thanks. Seems like we're on the same CD and same wavelength thinking about CM. I'm trying to think about what I can do differently this cycle too. @BertieMeetsGertie - look at you all organized for the Dr!@lulu1180 - those muffins sound awesome!!@zwink1 - good luck with the job! I hate when they take forever like that.@Anna_1021 - yay for finding happy place. I'm with ya!
WAYDTGKU: Everything. Adding Mucinex and meditation this
cycle. The meditation is partially to help keep me de-stressed since that can
affect your chances, but also just because I tend to be a nicer human
(especially towards DH) when I do it daily.
R/R: Rant: Sorry I took a few days off from TB. I was pretty
crushed by AF this weekend. I think an egg tried to implant, but my body had
already started sending the signal to release the hormones to start AF. I never
have spotting before AF, and I had the exact same spotting I did before a BFP
back in April. Temp, when AF started (it always starts first thing in the
morning the second day after temp drop, this time it started at like 2pm with
temps still above cover line), and a few other things that were identical to
April were making me pretty hopeful.
Rave: You guys! If you were here when I was ranting about DH
not being good at helping with chores…I
might have found a solution. The dumbest, easiest one on
earth….drumroll… a to-do list! I wrote down what I was working on getting done
this weekend, and mentioned to DH that there was a list if he wanted to help
with any of it I’d appreciate it, and he DID! I asked him once we got
everything done if that was the best way to get help, and he was just like
“what are you talking about? I help.” :-P Needless to say, it worked and I’m
going to keep doing that. Make “my” to do list and ask for help with it.
CS/Q: Nothing to stalk yet.GTKY: I'm a cookie person. All things cookie at this time of year! My favorites are a coffee mint cookie and peanut butter blossoms
@lulu1180 Those muffins sound A-mazing! I'm def drooling.
@zwink1 FX you got the job!
@starla Thank you...I will try my best to enjoy
@KhRun Yay for getting the hubby to help...maybe I should try that.
@vegatalienne Yes!!! I cannot wait for Thanksgiving..2nd favorite holiday because Christmas is first.
@Ohemgee It's like regular spaghetti but instead of being made with the normal red sauce, it is made w/cheese, shredded chicken breast, chopped tomato, corn, and has shredded cheese sprinkled on top...(that's my best description lol)
@hupp0013 Sorry about CD1. So happy I am not the only one decorating for Christmas already.
@adirat It’s ok to be sad sometimes. (At least that’s what
Inside Out taught me) Here’s hoping you come back strong for Cycle 7
@lulu1180 I will take a dozen French Breakfast Puffs please.
@zwink1 Good luck with the job this week! Here’s hoping for good
@Anna_1021 It’s ok to feel whatever you need to feel about
this process. I’m glad you’re finding your center again.
WAYDTGKU: HIO EOD, BBT, CM, CP, PNV, Preseed
R/R: I’m going to brag here for a second, I had a swim meet over the weekend
and I’m super proud of the times I put up. I did the same three individual
events this year as I did at the same meet last year and I improved in all
three. Two of the times were within a half second of my best times in high
school. Also, it was a mixed gender meet, but results were separated out by
gender and the women on my team won our meet!
GTKY: What is your favorite Thanksgiving/Christmas/Holiday food?
We always make really decadent waffles Christmas morning at my
parent’s house. It’s my favorite holiday meal
This is for all the feelings out there today. Feel what you need to feel in this moment.
@adirat Sorry that I do not have too much insight into your question, but I do hope you are feeling better today. Also, I would see no harm in continuing to HIO after temp shift.
@lulu1180 FX that this break is just what you need! Also, those muffins sound amazing. I fully support a recipe sharing thread!
@zwink1 FX you can get some good news this week!
@KhRun17 Glad you were able to get DH to help out!
