LOL at your dollar store test experience. I need to get more cheapies for this cycle. My AF seems to be lightening dramatically. Maybe it'll end today.

Woke up at 3:30 and have been unable to get back to sleep - posting from my phone in bed, too! Hehe I also am not a fan.of posting from the phone and often wonder if my phone is the issue with my disappearing posts. I'm sure sometimes I'm shortsighted and forget to submit, but not all the time! lol

Well I'm up early too. I had my alarm set for 550 but woke up at 515 and knew I'd never go back to sleep. I have to travel south today to my friends to learn how to do shellac. I have a good idea bc I've seen it done several times but I'm actually going to do nails today. Dh has all the kids alone today!! My older kids help babysit the younger one but it could get interesting. Haha I'm sure I'll have quite the mess when I get home this evening! It snowed again lastnight I hope the roads aren't too bad. I'm glad Af is winding down for you :) you really will o before my cycle is over. Haha I'm not feeling very hopeful anyway. I still think I mite o'd sun with the cramps I had in left ovary sun night. I do hope I'm wrong though and it was sat. I got my Maca root in. I shouldn't prob take it till this cycle is over though right?

I always prefer to start a new herb at the start of a new cycle for OCD purposes, but really it would do no harm now since it will take a while to build up anyway. ;)

Hope you have fun doing shellac! I'm sure a little break will be nice, too! :)

I'm thinking about starting to take my temp between 2-3 AM since I ALWAYS wake up then(when my sweating starts). I just think it would be more accurate because the first hours of my sleep are better than the last half. With my new thermometer I can make it happen with little hassle! Excited to use it, btw!

The only problem that I have with my thermometer is when I tried temping vaginally is I can't hear it beep when it's done. Have you played with it any? Def try it out some to get the hang of it. It takes about two min to complete. I do love the light. I think you have to push a button to store your temp if you want to go back and look at it later. Yes my first hours of sleep are much better too.

Well I didn't end up getting to go today. Roads were terrible and didn't think it'd be a good ide to chance it. Oh well bc I'm exhausted today. I don't want to do anything!!! I have someone coming at 2 to get their hair done hope I can stay awake for it. Lol I'm getting a cold. All nice and stopped up today. I'm having some heartburn or more like acid reflux today. That's something new. Just feel yuck in general. So you know I had to try out one of my new tests to see what it was like. Lol the indent lines are really visible. Good think I checked or I might've gotten excited from that further on down the road. Hope you've had a good day!

Yeah I've only done Dollar Store ones one cycle when I was something like a year into ttc #1 and got the indent. I mean I swore it had color. It was al evil evap! Closest to a positive I had ever seen before actually getting pregnant.

I did more work in my craft room! I'm exhausted now. DH and I moved a bunch of furniture around today, we are clearing out a new office for him.. lol... so we decided for the weekend to leave the bed in the living room. It's going to be too cold to do anything else, so we've decided on a movie marathon through the weekend. :)

Still no answers on my avatar/signature issue. Kinda getting used to it at this point. It's annoying not being able to see your chart though!

Oooh!! I hope that's not an evil indent!

Sorry been MIA. It is negative here today. Our pipes are frozen even with all of our under sink heaters on all night AND leaving the faucets dripping.

Interesting Valentine's Day for sure. Do you have any other tests on hand that aren't dollar store? I really hope you got your BFP!!

Oh no! A houseful of sick kiddos is no good! Hope they're all able to get some good rest tonight!

I'm going to start temping tomorrow morning. Been super lazy this cycle so far, but did have a neg OPK this morning. Not too worried about the past two days :)

Well I think I'm going to take my two daughters to the dr tomorrow. We are supposed to go to Kansas City on wed to see our nephew and we can't go with sick kids so I better them in.

Did you play around with your thermometer yet? Are your pipes still frozen? Hope they don't bust.

So my left boob is still sore. Wonder if it's from the progesterone cream. My boobs never hurt. I guess I can blame it on the cream instead of making myself think it could be from pregnancy. Lol I have been a little more hungry today. I do think this mornings test was just the indent. I almost tested tonight but talked myself out of it. I'll take another cheapie in the morning.
