(Closed) Charters of the Hive Part XXXII

  • poll: If money were no object, would you still work or be a SAHM? And, what's your reality? TWO POLLS!

    In the perfect situation, I'd be a SAHM!

    I'd work part-time, because I love my job!

    I'd work part-time, because otherwise I'd go completely insane!

    I'd work full-time, because I love my job!

    I'd work full-time, because otherwise I'd go completely insane!

    Other? Explain below.

    SECOND POLL STARTS HERE! YAY POLLS!

    I'm going to be a SAHM!

    I'd like to be a SAHM, but it's not feasible for our family.

    @StaceyA:  Thanks guys… It was already positive last night, I was just checking to see if it was positive still today..  I don’t think my surge is strong enough to make it a dark purple.  Every month I struggle to even get it to be the same color as the control line, so I am not sure if I drink too much water throughout the day, or if my surge isn’t as strong as others.

    @MrsRugbee:  I agree with DH too, but I just felt like I was forcing him do the deed, so it is a nice reminder that this is fun for him too.

    Ugh, this is just NOT my day/week/month. I’ll basically miss 2 temps this week and my temps are already wonky.  I left my thermometer in the hotel room from when I traveled over the weekend. Walgreens didn’t have one, they even checked the stock room for me. I ordered one on Amazon prime overnight so if CVS doesn’t have one at lunch at least I know one’s coming tomorrow night, which I can always return. Amazing how one small thermometer can cause so much angst.

    @KH:  I am glad that I am not the only one who struggles to get a positive; I was starting to worry.  I ended up testing 5 times yesterday, and I finally got my first positive in 4 months!  My chart does have a clear thermal shift every week, so I know I O (or at least I assume I do)!

    @hoogirl05:  I got mine at Walmart, don’t know if you have one close but you could always check there too!

    @razzzzzz, @MrsRugbee – Thank you so much for the reply!  I think I might test tomorrow if AF doesn’t show herself.  My temp went down today, so unfortuantely I’m not holding my breath at the moment.

    @hoogirl05:  I got mine at Target if you have one close by.  It was pretty inexpensive.

    Want to see a major temp spike, ladies? Go check out my chart today. I started feeling sick on Sunday, came home early yesterday and napped, woke up with a fever. This morning, it’s still raging, as you can tell. I charted it for now but will eventually discard. I just thought it looked funny!

    @wandering_gypsy:  Guilty. FF has been acting weird the last few days for me so I’m partly doing it now because things keep getting messed up. Its not syncing to my iphone for some reason.

    @MrsRugbee:  Thanks for that! 🙂 Hows it going over there for you? I know earlier you said AF was coming but have you felt differently?

    @StaceyA: Thanks for the second set of eyes! 🙂

    @chelles07: I’m sorry about the bfn. 🙁 I stopped using those cheap ones because of that reason. A few months ago I had something that looked just like yours. I think I’ve curved the POAS addict though and so buying FRERs isn’t such a big deal now. Target has buy 2 get a 5 dollar gift card plus they had $1/off 1 and it could be stacked with the $2/off one from FRER.

    @OldMrsMcDonald:  Yikes! What a FEVER!!! You rest up, lady!!

    @hoogirl05:  I’m so frustrated for you. DH once took my thermometer in the morning to check his temperature & I went ballistic looking for it! By the time I found it, I was so worked up that temping would have been useless!

    @lovemygsp:  haha YES! I am not alone, although at least you are having issues so you kind of have an excuse. lol  I have zero excuse!

     

    That said guys, talk me down and tell me I’m just symptom spotting… My right boob is super sore (the left one not so much, lol) and it doesn’t feel the same kind of sore like when AF is around the corner… Someone tell me I’m being crazy.

    @lovemygsp:  Its really hard to say. My breasts are quite a bit larger than usual but I haven’t had the tenderness, cramping or nausea I had last cycle. I’m not drawing any conclusions yet. Tomorrow if my temp is still high I think it’ll be hard for me to resist POAS though.

    I’m baaaaacck! Missed the ever loving crap out of you ladies!!!


    TTC or TTA: <Sigh> Newfound celibacy. So I guess that makes me SANBC (Stuck Avoiding Not By Choice – haha)

    Current Cycle Day: CD 24

    Ovulation Date: Not sure. I don’t have CH on FF! WTH? But my chart is super messy from the few days of transit + terrible jetlag with the 8.5 hour time difference. It does kind of look like I o’ed somewhere in those 4 days though. The open dots on my chart are all because I’m waking up a bit too early still. 6-6:30 instead of the agreed upon 6:30-7 window.

    POAS date/AF due date: Dunno. All bets are off this month. Last month I ran 31 days. But since I don’t have an O date, my best guess is 28 May (THE DAY after DH gets here to visit. SOAB)

    Cycles trying: This is cycle 3 charting. 

    Age (if you want to share): 26; DH is 31

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): I don’t have one this summer. DH will be workign in Africa all summer so if I got a BFP we either have very serious problems or there really is a God. ; )

    Hello Lovelies! Whew! What a week! 

    First: The BFPS!!! Super excited for MrsLunchbox and ScottishMrs (Sorry, I don’t have time to dig through and find your links!) Whoo hoo! Baby!

    Second: I’m on the same (general) time zone as you guys! Super fun. 

    Third: Where do you guys buy your thermometer batteries? I think mine needs a change. I’m about to order All The Pee Sticks from Amazon, should I tack them on? Or any better suggestions? 

     

    @candy11:  Have fun! I used to live in DC, and might be moving back later this summer. Good luck with the humidity. Whoever thought “I know. Let’s build a city on this swamp” was a total jerk. Can be a really fun town though!

    @MrsRugbee:  Wow. Apparently your baptism receptions are a totally different ballgame than the ones I’ve been to. Have fun. Your chart is looking AWESOME! FX for you!

    @Woodstock:  Saw your post about Zyrtec. Do you know if they’ve come out with generic gel tabs for it yet? DH had some of the name brand ones and I was going to buy him some for his visit/this summer in Africa but it is like.. $18/25 ct at Target. Holy Crap!!!

    @RoyalLime:  Any luck today?! FX
