    He's only 165 at PMPS and he hasn't even started rising since +6/nadir.

    I don't want to skip altogether... but .75 and even .5 seems too high for this situation... 165 is too low for me in general, but especially since hes not even really rising yet.

    I'm probably going to go with .25...

    Though... he did get a couple purebites from a bag that I didn't' realize smelled rancid til he already ate them...

    so now I also am kind of fearing possible stomach upset maybe puking that might prevent him keeping enough food down especially if we dose this low.

    He needed to eat and I can't give the shot unless he's still distracted eating so went ahead with the .25.

    +1 is 232 :(

    Wish I'd stalled now but... he was really hungry.

    I hate that I can't make a decision til I see his PMPS but once I see it there is such a small window of time before he's supposed to eat/shoot.

    Hope he doesn't go too high tonight :(

    Hang in there....it's just one cycle

    You learn by gathering data …….next time you have a PS you're unsure about, you'll remember what happened this time!

    As long as you're able to test during the cycle, it's almost always going to be OK to shoot.

    Thanks for the reminder, that's what I was telling myself before tonight... I gotta get better at taking naps when I can so that I can stay up or set and alarm to wake up, to get a test on lower nights.
