    WAYDTGKU: OPKs, Tracking CM

    R/R: Yay for being off this week! Yesterday and today we are trying to be somewhat productive and then tomorrow we are going on a little getaway! We rented a house in a private beach community in a not-touristy area and are hoping so much that it’s low-key. We have some backup plans if it’s not, so I’m really looking forward to getting away and getting a mental break. I’m sure I’ll be around but probably won’t check into the dailies so I will see you all next week or in the TWW!

  • @bows22 enjoy the getaway! Relax and we’ll “see” you next week!

    Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD: 8

    WAYDTGKU: PNVs, OPKs (I’ll start Thursday), CM, CP, BBT

    R/R: I keep posting and ghosting some. School stuff has really picked up and I have so much to do and so little time to do it. I’m putting in hours a day of school stuff, way more than previous years, and feel less prepared than usual. It’s all feeling a bit overwhelming. I’m off to my classroom today to finish unpacking and try to get some work done. Wish me luck. In other news, DH has 7 of the next 9 days off and I NEED that kind of support right now, so I am very much looking forward to that!

    CS/Q: I keep sleeping late and it’s messing with my temps. I might need to set an alarm to temp closer to my normal time again.

    WAYDTGKU: trying to HIO EOD but that's failing, temping, OPKs, GF and DF diet, supplements

    R/R: I have a busy work day today (currently typing this up while in a meeting that I'm mostly listening in on ATM). Haircut later today yay! I need the pampering. I'm giving up on trying to have these longer side swept bangs, I'm going to have her cut them back to being short/eyebrow length. I'm still feeling in a funk and I swear it's like every damn FW this happens UGH. Bad mind and body - don't do this!

    CS/Q: My OPKs are slightly darker now so I expect a positive OPK in the next day or 2 yay! Hopefully DH and I can get a good number of HIO sessions in!

    ETA: adding my chart

  • *Lurking from TWW as I miss you guys; it was a long lead up to O this month.*

    @inthewoods23 did you manage to get an appointment with your therapist? Funk + FW isn’t good!

    @chindimples04 did I misunderstand... I thought you’d applied to teach “virtually”? Sorry if I’m confusing you with someone else.

    @bows22 enjoy your getaway! I plan to be “off the grid” most of next week so I may see you in TWW towards the end of mine.

  • @acleverusername I should be over in the TWW soon! I see my therapist next week Wednesday. I could probably email her and ask about meds now instead of later but.... ehhhh idk.

  • Month/Cycle: 1/1 AL#2

    CD: 5

    WAYDTGKU: Will talk to hubby in a couple days to decide if trying this cycle or not. 

    R/R: ugh, I dont know why but I'm not feeling it today. I feel tired and lazy and dont want to go to work or do anything at all. Just one of those blah moods. I got my results back yesterday from my urine and blood test for my thyroid. Thyroid is great and is at 1.31 which is perfect levels. My urine test unfortunately had high hemoglobin which means there is blood in my urine but its microscopic so I can see it. My dr asked me first thing if I was on my period and I said yes. So he said ok then I'm not worried. Its prob from that and that's normal so we will leave it for now. He said we will redo the test in 1 month not on AF and go from there. If there is still blood in my urine next time I'll have to go for an u/s for my kidneys and bladder and make sure there is no infection and blood is not coming from somewhere else. FX next time there is none. 

    CS/Q: Nothing 

    @inthewoods23 so sorry that you're still feeling in a funk. Hopefully you get your positive OPK in a day or two. Enjoy your haircut and pampering today, that always feels nice. I have side swept bangs myself and mine are eyebrow length too. If they get too long they drive me nuts lol 

    @chindimples04 GL on your day in the classroom today and with the school year. 

    @bows22 yay for time off! Your little getaway sounds so nice. Enjoy your relaxing time away at the beach. See ya when you get back.

  • @bows22 enjoy your weekend away! I hope it's a nice break for you!

    @chindimples04 ugh I totally feel you about school stuff. I've been mentally avoiding it to keep my anxiety in check but it's probably going to make it worse when I feel rushed to revamp my curriculum. I haven't gone into school yet either but since I'm pushing into classrooms, I don't feel especially inspired to set up my classroom yet.

    @inthewoods23 sounds like a decent day ahead. I'm sorry you're still in a funk. I hope you can shake it and jump into FW!

    @mindyb2019 glad your thyroid results were good. Hopefully your hemoglobin will be normal next appointment. FX for you! 

    Month/Cycle: 14/9

    CD: 11

    WAYDTGKU: temping, prenatals, OPKs, and HIO of course

    R/R: Not much going on today. My district has scheduled a meeting for Friday morning with the teachers regarding reopening where we'll be able to ask questions. I'm definitely planning on attending (and am grateful that it was stipulated that masks and distancing are required for all attendants).

    CS/Q: super negative OPK yesterday but I'm not surprised. FF is predicting FW near CD 24. I have no idea what to expect after BC.
  • @acleverusername not mistaken. I still have a classroom in the new school and needed to unpack all of my stuff from the old building into my new classroom. If I teach virtually, my classroom will be used to spread kids out. If I don’t get selected to teach virtually, I will need my room. It all depends on numbers. Either way, I need to have my physics classroom unpacked. 

    @gingermama29 I’ve has weekly meetings all summer for curriculum and instruction, since I’m a unit leader, and I still feel super overwhelmed with stuff, probably because I never got a break. I’ve been doing school stuff all summer long. We decided this summer was a good time to switch to standards based report cards so I’ve had to completely change our math curriculum and am only done setting up the first unit. 🤦🏻‍♀️ So much stuff, so little time. 

    @mindyb2019 I hope the blood was just from AF. 🤞🏼

    @inthewoods23 at least his time off lines up with my FW? 🤪

  • @mindyb2019 yes I'm always hating when they get too long and I'm touching them all the time. With the pandemic shutting everything down I went another 8 weeks or so of not having them trimmed so I got used to it. I've been trying to get them to wave/curl a bit to match the rest of my head but I straightened those babies for years and leaving everything else wavy so they are not well trained on curling much right now. At least when they're short the ends will kinda flip away towards my ear so they're not pin straight while the rest of my head is curls and waves. I think our cases of the Mondays yesterday may have caught you today  :D

    @gingermama29 I'm glad it sounds like your school is actually being diligent about the social distancing and masks. A couple weeks ago when DH went in to the school to have some paperwork signed for the robotics team, almost none of the administration was wearing masks. These are the people who should be showing an example of good behavior and they're just like whatever about being safe in a pandemic.

    @chindimples04 DH is currently on furlough this week which is lining up nicely with my FW right now. Checking off lunchtime delight today is fantastic :p

    @chindimples04 enjoy the time off with YH! When will you find out if you are chosen to teach virtually?

    @inthewoods23 I hope some self-care helps with the funk you’re in. And I hope O comes soon!

    @acleverusername enjoy your time off as well!

    @mindyb2019 I hate those blah days! Hopefully it gets better. And I’m glad your thyroid results were good! 

    @[email protected] good luck with your meeting! A lot of districts around here are now switching their plan to be hybrid of in-person and remote, I hope that your district is able to make a plan that makes you feel more comfortable. This whole situation sucks.

  • @bows22 Monday. 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼 Part of me REALLY wants virtual. The other part of me REALLY wants to be in the classroom! It’s a struggle.

  • @chindimples04 ooof sounds like you could use a good mental break from everything.

    @inthewoods23 that's so frustrating that your admin isn't setting a good example. Seriously, if adults don't comply, what makes them think kids will? This whole thing is a clusterf*ck.

    @bows22 thank you friend. I'll definitely be curious to hear what administration has to say on Friday. They're really isn't a good solution to the problem but I think they're making a mistake going back full time, even with masks and distancing required. 
  • @gingermama29 right?? Thankfully we're going to wait at least 21 days after they start school to see how things play out to determine if and when (if at all) we can start meeting in person.
