Well, I don’t know what to think.
I have been pretty spotty with temping this cycle. When I do, my sleep is so restless that my temps are all over the place. I have also been kind of lax with the OPKs (ovulation predictor kits). They were getting darker and then yesterday I only had one line again. I also haven’t really cared about checking my cervical mucous this cycle either. I didn’t test or temp today because K woke me up and wouldn’t let me do either.
I have to warn you. I am going to talk about private things now. If you don’t like that, don’t read further.
This morning while K and I were doing the deed, I felt a sharp pinch about where my right ovary is. It then felt kind of achy for about an hour afterwards. If it was me ovulating, we couldn’t have timed things better.
Another reason I think I ovulated is because it took no time for me to be ready for sex this morning. Usually it takes forever to get enough lubrication. Maybe I had plenty of fertile, egg-white cervical mucous.
I’m still not sure it was ovulation though. I need to wait and see if my temps are elevated the next few days to confirm it. In the meantime, I’ll get back to the OPKs and we’ll keep up with the intimacy every other day until I know for sure.
Today is cycle day 10. I ran to the Dollar Tree to get some things for Frick’s birthday celebration this weekend and decided to pick up a bunch of OPKs (ovulation predictor kits for the uninitiated).
I thought I better start testing today. Got home about 1:00 and whipped one of those babies out.
No big deal. It’s only day ten. I don’t expect a surge for a week but I always start testing early just so I don’t miss it.
I have to admit that whenever I use an OPK, I pretend it’s a pregnancy test just so I can imagine what it would be like to have those two pink lines show up. Kind of pathetic.
Here’s my chart so far. I have been waking and sleeping fitfully in the mornings so my temps were higher than what I am used to. I would take my temp at 5:30 every morning because that’s when K’s alarm went off. Well, by then, I would have woken up, fallen back asleep and only have gotten about an hour of sleep. I just started taking my temp when I wake up after four hours of sleep no matter what time it is. That explains the sharp drop in temps the last few days.
Have a great day everyone.
I can’t believe it’s been that long since I last posted. I’m sure you thought I fell off the face of the earth. I have been busy with school and life in general. And when I do find time to go on the interwebs, I am usually just checking facebook or email.
Well, the last cycle was a bust. The natural progesterone cream did not bring on my period. I ended up calling my doctor for a Provera prescription. The last cycle was 65 days long. Hopefully this next one goes much better.
For those of you who like to see charts, this one is last cycle’s.
Here’s this month’s.
As you can see, I’m only seven days in. Still have my period. I took 5 mg of Femara on cycle days 3 through 7. There isn’t much to report.
I do have a serious case of dry mouth though. It really sucks. I’m probably drinking about a gallon of water a day and can’t seem to get any relief. I hope it is just a side effect of the Femara and goes away in the next few days.
Glad to be back. I’ve missed doing this.
