    Currently Monty is injected at 0800 and 2000. I want to change that to 0700 and 1900 as it's more convenient for me. How much time is it safe to shift in one day? Should I move in increments?

    You move shot time in increments.
    15 minutes early each cycle.
    1945
    0730
    1915
    0700

    It would be great if you could get some mid cycles tests in, especially during the PM cycles. Before you go to sleep or if you wake up in the middle of the night?

    No one will be in with him for 4 hours following shoot so I don't feel comfortable shooting and leaving him with a 108 PMPS. This lower than normal number makes sense since he didn't eat as much this morning, although he's pestering me for food now!

    Going to start getting PM+ numbers this week. My schedule this weekend made that not possible until tomorrow.

    I'd planned to do a curve on Monday, will this skip affect that, should I delay the curve?

    Thanks, starting PM+ measurements from tomorrow, was going to start yesterday but PM schedule doesn't allow for it until tomorrow.

    I'm skipping his PM shoot this evening because he's at 108 pre shoot (normally he's 150-200) and I'm not with him for the next 4 hours so don't want to risk it.

    Given I'm skipping a shot, can I go ahead and shift a whole hour tomorrow morning?

    Yes you can. Tomorrow, shoot at your new preferred time of 7 a.m.

    I have to say I agree wholeheartedly with @Red & Rover (GA) - please do get some tests in the PM. Your kitty is showing some fine pm numbers and those are typically the lowest of the cycle. It's critical to see how low this dose is taking him. And you can only determine that number from getting mid-cycle tests.

    Yes, I know setting an alarm and getting up at night is about the most miserable thing ever, but you may find Monty hitting some impressive green numbers at that time. They're legendary for going lower at night.

    Uh oh...I see you have two threads today. Since it's recommended that we have only one post/thread per day, I'll see if I can catch the attention of one of the admins to merge them.

    @Wendy&Neko @Sienne and Gabby (GA) - thank you.

    Oops I didn't know that we prefer one a day, I made two because they are different topics. I'll make one in future!
