Re: Can I start the TTC check-in?

  • Thanks for doing this. @callitcompulsive

    How many months/cycles have you been TTC? 5 months/2nd cycle.
    Where are you in your cycle? CD31
    Are you planning on testing for anything this week? Maybe OPK's again
    Any goods or bads in regards to TTC or life in general? I started the 4 week training yesterday for the marathon relay I'm in next month.  It went surprisingly well, and I did 2 miles at a pace faster than my goal pace. So that made me happy. Tonight I'm meeting up with my mom right after work, so we can do some hill training.  It makes me feel good to get back into the running.
    Questions, thoughts, concerns?  Yesterday I had a client come into the office, that I hadn't seen since the week after my wedding.  I was wearing a flowy dress, and my gut has been pretty pronounced lately.  She came into my office and patted my belly and said how excited she was for us. Then I had to explain to her that it was just post-wedding pounds, not baby pounds.  I think she felt more akward than I did.

    QOTD: Which fall TV shows are you looking forward to? How I Met Your Mother. Although this is the last season. Which means we're going to meet their mother. :-(

  • How many months/cycles have you been TTC? First one, round two.
    Where are you in your cycle? CD 27/ 8 DPO
    Are you planning on testing for anything this week? Of course I am... Because I'm a pathetically hopeful noob.
    Any goods or bads in regards to TTC or life in general? H applied for (another) promotion within his company, and he will be filling in at the position he applied for until they find someone more permanent. Seems to me they could eliminate a step and just give him the damn position!
    Questions, thoughts, concerns? Newp.

    QOTD: Which fall TV shows are you looking forward to? I can't wait for all my CBS shows to come back... I'm getting so tired of re-runs. Also, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, The League, etc.

    I think this is the reason I ran 2 miles in under 17 minutes last night. Although honestly it didn't bother me much. Whatever, I know the belly is there and that dress makes it more pronounced. I just corrected her and acted like it was nothing.

    Where are you in your cycle? CD29

    Any goods or bads in regards to TTC or life in general? I almost had a meltdown at my desk today. Found out one of the women I work with is pregnant again, of course on her first attempt. This is the first time I've ever been this upset. I'm happy for her but super jealous. I wish this was easier.
    Questions, thoughts, concerns? Nope. Not today.

    QOTD: Which fall TV shows are you looking forward to? Castle, Parenthood, Bones, HIMYM, Grey's, Big Bang Theory, Dr Who (even though it's not til November!)

    ETA: I've already started cramping and spotting apparently and I only took my last Provera yesterday.

  • How many months/cycles have you been TTC? 5 days away from 12 months/1 full year. Woot.
    Where are you in your cycle? CD30.
    Are you planning on testing for anything this week? We'll see. I had an LH surge and good CM, so hopefully something good happened.
    Any goods or bads in regards to TTC or life in general? Oh you know. Our 2nd anniversary is on Tuesday the 3rd, and I'm happy about that. But I'm also a little down that a year ago, on our 1st anniversary, we agreed that we were ready to start trying. And look where we are now.
    Questions, thoughts, concerns?  Not really, besides the above.

    QOTD: Which fall TV shows are you looking forward to? How I Met Your Mother, hands down. I'm so excited I can't stand it! And my birthday is the next day after the premiere!

    how could I forget HIMYM? I guess I lumped it into "CBS SHOWS" lol
     
    @transponster, Are you guys going anywhere special or doing anything special for your anniversary ?
    @islandmonkey8, I'm sorry you're having a rough day. It really isn't fair. :( 
    islandmonkey8
  • @callitcompulsive I don't know yet. We won't be going anywhere, and the actual day I have class until 7, so if we did anything it would be on Labor Day. Honestly though, we didn't do much last year either. It's how we are.
    image

    TTC #1 since 9/12
  • How many months/cycles have you been TTC? 13 months (14 in a couple of days)/11 cycles
    Where are you in your cycle? CD 31, 9 DPO
    Are you planning on testing for anything this week? NO! I'm going home from work tonight and not thinking about possibilities until I wake up for work next Tuesday, and then only if my temp is still up and I haven't started spotting/gotten AF.
    Any goods or bads in regards to TTC or life in general? I'm getting ready to flip shit on DH for not making getting his SA done more of a priority. I get that the damn hospital's hours for accepting a sample are total crap (must be dropped of my 9:30 a.m.) when people have to work, but if this was anything else that he actually was interested in, his ass would have found a way by now.
    Questions, thoughts, concerns? My moods have been all over the place the last week. I feel bad for DH in that respect, since I've been snapping at nothing.

    QOTD: Which fall TV shows are you looking forward to? I'm pretty much going to be glued to ABC: Once Upon a Time, OUAT in Wonderland, and Agents of Shield. I desperately want to try to catch up on the last season and a half of Bones so I can actually start watching that again, but I don't think it'll happen in time. And I might try to actually start catching Big Bang Theory when it airs instead of just watching all the reruns and OnDemands :)

    Any goods or bads in regards to TTC or life in general? DH's interview went well and will probably be offered a position (but he's wanting to wait till the new CFO starts and I'm worried they'll tell him thats too bad and pull their offer. and then I'll kill him)  DH said if I set up his SA he'll go whenever I want, so that's good
    Questions, thoughts, concerns? Not related but the front of our garage door is peeling off from all the rain x 2 years and I'm going to look into our homeowners insurance to see if they'll cover it.

    Questions, thoughts, concerns? Just trying not to overanalyze every sign and symptom this time. I guess it's good that I'm busy and don't have much time to think.

    Are you planning on testing for anything this week? I'm trying everything I can to convince myself not to test.  Our timing was totally off.  FF said that I O'd early which I'm not entirely convinced that I did (that was also when DH was sick).  Of course, my stupid brain is telling me, "Well maybe you were really pg last month" when my temps say that this is totally not true. UGH...the life of TTC!
    Any goods or bads in regards to TTC or life in general? See above.  I am totally trying not get my hopes up. I am really excited about being off work on Monday.

    @brij2006 I totally would have slapped her hand.  Rude!  I used to wear a shirt where it seemed like everytime I wear it, some asked if I was pregnant.  I'm saving it for when I actually am. haha.

  • @luckyangel07 Usually they are really short like 11-13 days. But we were totally off this month for ST, which is why I've been keeping myself from testing.  I've also been cramping on and off the last few days, so I just know an hour or so after I test AF will come.  This whole thing is messing with my head.

    Cinnabun and Junebug say, "Go Wildcats!"

  • @abt8113 I'm not totally convinced you've o'ed yet unless you normally o close to that early. If you haven't I'm guessing you haven't o'ed at all yet.
    That being said if you did o where your CH's are it's time to test. You'd have a BFP by now if you did o.
    Good luck to you.

    Hmm interesting.  I don't normally O that early, but I haven't had a cycle where I would not have O'ed yet at this point.  I typically O at day 15.
