THE ONE THREAD, August 2nd - 8th - Page 2

post #21 of 495
That's a great fortune, Mae! Hope it comes true for you. :

I don't have a great track record with those...the last one I had said "Know that we are always watching you." Yeah, nothing like a crazy stalker fortune cookie. And the one before that was "You really like Chinese food."

I always feel like somebody's watching me...

I always wondered if that song was ever central to a movie idea, and if so, how creepy would it be?

maerynpearl, cool fortune for sure! i was wondering what you said about alcohol. i know it can't "hurt" a developing bean until after implantation, but what about alcohol being an anti-nutrient? seems like all the advice around alcohol and TTC/pregnancy addresses danger to the developing baby. have you read anything about alcohol and how it prevents the body from absorbing the healthy stuff we need for TTC? (this is part of why i've cut it out, plus, alcohol hinders weightloss) i figured if anyone had......

WTHamI?, hilarious fortunes! if they aren't really fortunes, they might as well be funny. i hate the ones like, "you are loved by those close to you" my family always adds "in bed" to any fortunes, boring or otherwise

mahnamahna, i'm gonna be rootin' for those shufflers! you've seen "the graduate," right?


afm, temping post-O has totally sucked for me. i have had so many wacky nights sleep-wise. i have intermittent trouble sleeping, and always thought it was more closely leading up to AF and during primarily, but now i'm wondering if it's almost always post-O. maybe i have progesterone sensitivity or something... probably nothing (the sleeplessness) more exercise couldn't cure.

OK ladies... major temp drama over here. I thought I was in the 2WW, from 2 high temps and from CF and other signs. Stay with me on this one... I've done a lot of playing around in FF this morning!

CD20- what I believe to be O date. Lots of CM prior to that and intense nauseousness for about 30 min in the evening (same thing happened last month on O day). Temp that morning was 97.35 at 5:30. This was the highest of my previous 6, just for reference.

CD21- temp at 5:30 was 97.56. Wahoo!

CD22- temp at 4:45 was 97.58. Temp at 5:30 was 97.79.

CD23(today)- this is where it gets interesting. DH knocked the AC down last night, had the ceiling fan on high. I wake up, uncovered (normally I sleep in a cocoon of covers) mouth open and dry from breathing through it all night. Temp at 5 was 97.14. Covered up, closed my mouth and laid in bed, in and out of sleep. 5:10- 97.39, 5:20- 97.45. Which temp would you use???

I know this is over analysis to the extreme... but I'm thinking either fall back rise or environmental change made that first temp lower. Seeing it this morning was devastating, as I thought we had timed O perfectly on CD20.

Using the highest of all those temps gives me solid CH on CD20. I want to leave it that way, but I know that no matter what I put into FF... what happens happens and me bumping my temps up doesn't change that!

Mae, I LOVE that fortune Mine are also usually duds, I would love to get one like that.

MahnaMahna, GO SHUFFLERS!!!!


Virginia884, I went crazy like that on FF a few months back, I hate when I have many temps to choose from, I usually just use the first ones no matter what, but judging from your circumstances, I might discard cd23's temp. I know it sucks, I had to discard a temp right at O time once bc my thermometer stopped working :-/ IDK though , sorry not much help.

Wanted to add that looking around the FF chart gallery is really putting my mind at ease (for the time being)! There are some crazy pregnancy, fall back rise, low post-o temp charts out there!

Thanks Beloved. I'm hoping that tomorrow and on will clear the whole thing up. We'll know by next weekend if I did O or not, I guess!

virginia884, i totally hear you, it's so frustrating and disappointing to get temping wackiness on key days! there are more veteran charters about, but since we're both up early, i'll put in my opinion.

i DEFINITELY think the environment, AC, no covers, mouth-breathing, would cause your temp to be lower than normal. so, try not to set too much by today in any case (i know it feels like tomorrow will never come).

unless you've had lots of experience messing w/ multiple temps, i can't say what your body is doing, other than waking up and not giving you what your bbt would have been under your "normal" circumstances. maybe it would have been even higher

if it were me, i'd just put down the first temp, mark "sleep disturbance" under the "specific" tab where you record daily symptoms, make additional notes wherever you keep those about the situation, and hang out til tomorrow. i've had lots of these types of situations and had similar advice here.

meanwhile, have sex. why not?

To think of all the times my ex and I found a way in high school even if his mom was around, sneaky, horny little teens that we were... where there's a will...

Caramiia - that's bad timing, you'll just have to get creative

Virginia884 -"DHs fortune cookie this week said,

Hopefully that one's not true but it was really funny to read

I took it as a good thing. 'unusually successful' like, 'extra successful', ie... TWINS! DH did not think that was funny.

nannett56, i moved you.
post #39 of 495
It seems like I have been waiting forever (not really!) but I can finally move to the Waiting to Know group! Waiting 18 days (actually 21 until I was sure) to O seemed to take forever, how am I going to wait to test?!?!

I’m getting ready to head back to visit my family for a couple of weeks. Yea! I’m so excited, I haven’t see them since Christmas. Hubby can’t go so if I get a BFP : I’ll have to wait over a week to tell him, I don’t want to do it over the phone. It will be so hard keeping myself from telling my mom and sisters…I would love to tell them in person (didn’t get to last time) but hubby should probably know first! Oh the things I worry over!

Here’s a link to my chart. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/32049

Good luck everyone!
