Typical LP Length:
GTKY: What is the best piece of (not TTC related) advice you have gotten?
CD/DPO: 21 6/5
Timing: -1, O or -2, -1
Typical LP Length: 13-15
R/R: so FF moved my CH yesterday morning...I understand why, but I'm irritated. Also, regretting not going for +1 originally. This is going to be a tough week at work, I've been here for 2 hours and I'm already waiting for Friday.
CS/Q: chart in spoiler. original CH on CD14 now CD15
GTKY: What is the best piece of (not TTC related) advice you have gotten? To not let anyone or anything keep me from doing things I wanted to do/seeing the world. At 10 my aunt stressed to me the importance of getting out of my home town/state and seeing this country and the world.
Typical LP Length: not sure this is my first cycle off the pill in a while
Testing: trying to hold out for Sunday but we shall see
R/R: It is my last week of freedom before back to work next week
I think just to be true to myself.
ETA: I forgot my comments
@avrilmai - I'm sorry FF moved your CHs and that you are anticipating a rough week. I hope Friday comes quickly for you.
Me: 35 * DH: 35Married: July 2005DS1: Aug. 2006 * DS2: Dec. 2011 * DS3: Jan: 2014 * DS4: Mar. 2018
Timing: -4 -2 O
Typical LP Length: 13
Testing: 8/04 (10 DPO) for drinking purposes
R/R: not feeling the greatest today. Perhaps I should get some sleep.
GTKY: That sometimes you're not going to get the apolgy or answers you deserve or need in life and you have to make peace with that.
@Avrilmai - I would be frustrated by your chart, too. Also, the dry CM on O day? Not cool at all. Decent timing for either O day though, so FX!
@glitzandglitter - What a pretty chart you have there!
CD/DPO: 27/11 or 12
Timing: -5.-4.-3.-1 if 12 dpo
Typical LP Length: 10-12
Testing: no reason
R/R: Pre-period spotting commenced yesterday evening and is continuing today. Cramps more intense so AF is expected tomorrow.
Uh don't touch poison ivy lol
@Avrilmai FF is moving my O backwards and forwards every day the last week... So full sympathy with you
@glitzandglitter I'm also on vacation this week though staying home to do some work on the house- you doing anything nice? And full credit for being a kindergarten teacher. I have enough trouble with the "big kids" at work (i.e. The men over 40!!!)
Month/cycle:officially just over 2 years, so 27 months... NTNP for a year before
Timing:-5 -3 -1 0 1 (if I'm 4DPO) Might be last natural cycle before IVF so we were making the most of it
Typical LP length: 14-16 days
Testing trying to hold out til CD29 at least if no AF before
R/R DH had to make a few work calls this morning... which in the end took until 1pm and then he didn't want to do what he had planned - and I suddenly burst into tears! And I'm not normally one to get emotional so he was a bit shocked and afterwards took me out for a nice lunch to try and make amends
This feels like the longest TWW ever so far for some reason. Maybe it's because of being on holiday and also "having" to chart as requested by my RE and the last natural attempt...
CS/Q - still can't figure how to link to my chart sorry and how do you do that spoiler thing???
GTKY - about 10 years ago a mentor told me that nobody but you will ever truly put you first, which at the time I thought was really harsh and wanted to believe people do think of your needs... but actually I realized quite often in between when someone says "what would be best for you is..." they most likely mean "what would be good/not bad for you" and good/best for themselves - i.e. Not necessarily "best" as objectives of you and them are normally even a bit in conflict
Fav Quote: The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return
Typical LP Length: 12-15?
Testing: not unless AF is late
R/R: oh Monday :-)
CS/Q: no Q just hoping temps stay up
GTKY: What is the best piece of (not TTC related) advice you have gotten? "You create the world you live in" via my mom. Meaning not to let the world or anyone determine your happiness, your mood!
@charlestonchew sorry about the impending AF
@chloandcoco that's great advice!
@pebbledam give yourself a nap!
@glitzandglitter enjoy your last week of freedom!!!
@avrilmai FF moved my CH after the fact too! It's def frustrating!!!
Month/cycle: 12/8 (6/3 AL)
Timing: O, +1 (our timing was not great this month. We found out about my dad the day of my first + OPK. H didn't feel well the second day. Then we drove home O day so we didn't HIO until later that night. Sigh. )
Typical LP Length: *TW*. before ectopic it was 9 days since then it had been 10 then 11 days ** end TW**
Testing: Saturday (dpo 8) I wasn't going to test at all but I have my friends bachelorette party & bridal shower next weekend and I guess I should if I'm going to be drinking.
R/R: I'm so sad this is my last week of summer break It went by way too fast!
CS/Q: I only temped a little and now that I have CH, I won't be temping again until after AF but he it is
GTKY: What is the best piece of (not TTC related) advice you have gotten? Never go to bed or leave angry ( *TW* my mom was angry with her dad and when she was talking to her mom on the phone, she refused to talk to her dad he passed away before she talked to him again **end TW**)
Typical LP Length: not sure
Testing: Every day like a POAS-aholic with cheapies from amazon. Prob going to use my FRER tomorrow or wed. Didn't get a BFP with preveious pregnancies until the day my period was due but impatience is beating out common sense this TWW.
R/R: I just got my pictures back from my 6/24 wedding and they are a mess. We paid $4000 (included engagement session) and I'm underwhelmed by what she delivered. The images pretty much all need major editing. Bad angles, shadows, double chins, bad lighting, and worst of all... lots of pics that were on our agreed upon shot list, aren't there. Like she didn't take them. After editing there are some really beautiful pics in there but it's going to be so much work! I feel like I'll never get through them all. (I'm editing them myself). DH is heart broken that she got zero pictures of him and his guys getting ready. He really wanted a pic of him helping his autistic brother getting ready. Wow that turned in to one heck of a rant lol. Sorry about that!
Here's an example of what she gave me/ what I'll have to spend the next month doing to save my wedding pics
CS/Q: Not temping
GTKY: What is the best piece of (not TTC related) advice you have gotten? Most applicable to me at the moment is quit worrying about what other people think. With how judgey people can be these days you can imagine how it could just consume you! I'm a worrier.
@purplg8r Have you seen a doctor about your LP length? What did they say? It's looking like mine will be cut very short, too.
@charlestonchew Sorry to hear about AF's impending arrival
@margorita30 Wow, love your dress!
CD/DPO: 26/8 (probably)
Timing: -1, 0, +1
Typical LP Length: No idea.
Testing: Next Monday unless AF shows up first (which is looking pretty likely atm, ugh).
R/R: I've currently got the worst PMS symptoms since coming off the pill. Bloating, gas, cramping, backache. My LP's probably going to be shorter than 10 days Going to try out the progesterone pills next cycle and then go in for the CD 21 bloodwork in cycle #7.
But I think I figured out the reason for my hives! We bought a new hammock a couple of weeks ago and I spent some time in it every day from Thursday night to Sunday night. The hives showed up within an hour of leaving the hammock on Fri, Sat and Sun. I haven't gone anywhere near that thing since then and I'm fine (it's already 9:30 PM here). Who would've thought?
CS/Q: None atm.
GTKY: What is the best piece of (not TTC related) advice you have gotten? To never let anyone silence me.
CD/DPO: 24/ 9 or 10
Timing: -1, 0 if 9dpo/ 0, +1 if 10dpo.
Testing: Tested this morning. BFN. Still early though.
R/R: Monday. Bleh.
CS/Q: Not temping yet.
GTKY: What is the best piece of (not TTC related) advice you have gotten? There are only so many things you can care about before it starts to stress you out. If you limit the number of cares you give out, the better you'll be.
Timing: does this mean timing for test-taking, sexy naked fun time, or something else entirely?
Typical LP Length: 14 days on BC, all over the place without.
Testing: trying to hold off until 8/7.
R/R: RE scheduled me for HSG on day 9 this cycle. I also needed a baseline ultrasound, and due to a miscommunication with her nurse, they scheduled that on day 9 as well (after a course of letrozole days 4-8, prescribed by the same Dr). So, between timing and meds, not quite a baseline. They've said that I need to have it redone (if 8/7 test is BFN), but are still charging me.
CS/Q: Just moved onto FF, so will have the pretty visual going forward.

@charlestonchew - ((hugs))@purplg8r - It's been a rough month for you, but I'm glad you did some temping and OPKs to give yourself an idea of where you stand. ((hugs))
