Re: TTC/3T Check-In

  • @ilovewhitevinotoo- that's great news about the adoption progress.  Sorry about about the sad thoughts of your first born.  Maybe this adoption stuff is bringing it up in your mind.
  • Donor had baseline labs, FDA labs, and U/S yesterday... everything is good to go! She starts stims on Friday, and we'll get our first report on how things are going on Tuesday. Eeeekkkk! 

    We also are supposed to close on our new house this Friday. I still don't know what we were thinking when we decided to cram all this stress into this month and during the holidays! At least, as @ilovewhitevinotoo pointed out, it will keep our minds busy on other things... sorta. :wink:

    @ilovewhitevinotoo - I hate waiting on others, too! Hopefully, everyone will get things wrapped up soon so you can have those boxes checked off. Hugs about your little one. I hope your visit this weekend will bring you some peace. <3

  • Where are you at in your TTC journey? Cycle 2, CD 13 and still trying to figure out my cycle. Getting off BC has meant learning everything all over again. Given I got a positive OPK two days ago, I am thinking I either O'd yesterday or today, meaning my cycles are probably 26 days instead of 28, but I have not yet confirmed O with temping yet. Anywho, we HIO about 3 times during FW. 

    Any testing coming up? Planning to test on or around December 2 if AF doesn't show up.

    Anything good or bad happening? (TTC wise or just in life..) We are just so exhausted due to work. So it was a very rough week to try to to TTC and to be so tired. But we have this whole upcoming week off (perk of working in education) and plan to recover/re-energize.

  • @bmo88 Last month my FW was during a very busy time for DH and I've since decided if TTC has to be forced it's kinda lost it's fun and for us it won't be successful.  That's just what I've noticed with us anyways.  Friday I mentioned having sex but he said he'd rather wait until Saturday and I was fine with that.  Every 2-3 days is our average now which if you think about it is still good timing since sperm can live up to 5 days.  Saturday morning when I peed I noticed a whole bunch of EWCM so I knew it was on lol.  Good luck figuring out your cycle.
  • @vlagrl35: Thanks for the response! It looks like O might have actually been November 19 for me according to FF chart. My temp rose this morning for the first time. I am hoping that is the case, if so, we HIO on Friday night and that would be -1. So we would have hit -1 and -4. Not great, but ok for our first official cycle trying.

  • Thats good news @bmo88 - The 1 month I did chart I got a positive OPK the day before I got official cross hairs on FF.  I had a couple days of temp rise before the dip of O. I've been way more in the mood this month for BD it feels like something is wrong with me lol. All that charting and temping was putting to much pressure on myself and I just couldn't relax.
