Possible Ovulation

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.

Waiting sucks.


CD 10

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.

Day 28


It’s cycle day 28. I did not ovulate. I started using natural progesterone cream yesterday to bring on the evil witch. I didn’t expect much this cycle. I’m such a pessimist when it comes to my fertility. I’m going to try 5 mg in March. Hopefully that’s the magic dose for me. I don’t even really care that it didn’t happen this month. I’ll just hope we conceive right around K’s birthday, March 13th.

I do have some sad news though. I had told you that my brother’s fiancĂ© was expecting. She lost the baby. Last week Friday, she had a doctor appointment and they couldn’t find a heartbeat. She should have been almost 12 weeks along. They had her come in Monday for an ultrasound and the tech and doctor didn’t see anything. They think she miscarried at about seven weeks because she had been in at six weeks and they saw it on an ultrasound then. Her progesterone was low so they started her on suppositories. If she doesn’t start bleeding by Monday, she will have to go in for a D&C.

I don’t know what to say. I’m heartbroken and can imagine how awful they feel.

Please pray for Tom and Danielle that they may find comfort.
