Time drags when you're waiting for it!
So, I figured out last night that my cycles for the last couple of months have been 38 days in length! Is that normal? It seems a little long to me and I have never gone a whole month without AF like I did in Sept!
Me - Kristi, 30
DD - Leia, July 5 2008
I luurrrrrve to lurk!
Kristi - it's not way outside normal but is longer than most people. Becky has had 60+ day cycles if I remember right. A lot of things can effect your cycle.
Wendy - we are only 2 days apart now, that's cool!
8dpo today. For once this cycle seems to be going faster in the TWW. I guess I've just been busy so that helps. I'm sure I'll be a wreck next week when AF arrives though.
Yes. When I got pregnant with my DD it was day 60 of a cycle so if I hadn't gotten pregnant it would have been 74! So far this time TTCing they were 33,30,50,43,and 32 days. Before my DD I had 37, 47, and 48 days that I recorded. I don't remember ever having a 28 day cycle except while on Birth Control, even then they weren't regular like they should have been. All that being said, I believe I O'd this cycle on CD 15 thanks to adding exercise at least every other day and trying to avoid unnecessary stress. Charting made a big difference for me because I could also track things like my husband being gone and discovered the stress of that usually delayed ovulation. The most important thing is that you do ovulate and that you have a good luteal phase. If that is the case all you need to do is chart or use OPKs so you know when to DTD for your cycle since CD14 isn't going to do much good if you are O'ing 10 days later.
cool Wendy! I'll be testing next Friday if AF doesn't arrive before then. Lately she's been arriving 12dpo or so though so I'll be optimistic if AF hasn't arrived by Thursday morning!
Yup thats my testing day too, though I almost can't be bothered, I'm not feeling pregnant (yes I know it's early and all but yeah for some reason just not feeling it). I will have to test though because if it's negative I will have to stop progesterone and organise the clinic to fax a script for clomid to a pharmacy here if I choose to do another cycle next month
Are you going to do a cycle next month Wendy if this one doesn't work? Would you try just clomid, or clomid and IUI at the same time?
