cd 25 If I get pregnant this month I will be do Aug. 28. I think I am driving August crazy with my posts (cuz Im obsessed) so I started this journal. I am 10dpo. I tested this morning with FMU and got a BFN but I still have quite awhile left. I have a very long luteal phase (2 days short of 3 weeks). The past couple days I had cramping but at 8dpo I had nausea. I dont know if all that is pregnancy related or not. I am really excited about my chart though. I had a small dip the day of the cramps, nausea, and fatigue and it shot up after that which could mean....PREGNANCY!!! I hope it does!! Wish me luck everyone and baby dust to all of you.
P.S. The box at the top says to not comment on everyone's journals that it will interrupt them. I DO NOT MIND PEOPLE COMMENTING IN MY JOURNAL!! I wont ever check that other thread so feel more than free to comment here on something I write if you have something to say.
CD26 So I had a minor temp drop today. 98.2 down from 98.4 It's not that big of a deal. It is still .3 degrees above cover line. YAY! When I temped yesterday the timing was kinda off so I dont know how accurate that one was. My daughter woke up and I got up and put her back to bed and I was talking to her then got back in bed and temped. It said 98.1 which means it dropped .1 I went back to sleep for about an hour and when I woke up then I temped and 98.5. I put it in as 98.4 cuz it just barely made it to 98.5. I dont know which one was more accurate...the .5 or .1. Oh well. I need to stop obsessing and just wait til I can test.
Ok...I missed a few days when I first started temping so I added in a fake one and it put my ovulation day at cd15. If I take the fake temp away then it puts my ovulation at cd19. I did have cramping that day too. If that is the case then why did I have cramping on cd22-24??? I was thinking implantation but that would only be 4dpo so that cant be it. I have had cysts before so perhaps a cyst. That is of course IF I ovulated on cd19. That also could mean my sptting today is implantation spotting at 11dpo. I added a few higher temps the next 3 days and FF said under implantation signs there was a triphasic temp or something or other. So...maybe and hopefully. I had a HUGE temp shift on cd15&16 so how could that NOT be ovulation. Right now my chart is set up with the fake temp. The fake temp is on cd11. I know I will find out tomorrow if AF will come or not. Plus my temp will be taken in 10 hrs, lol. I am just so tired of all this. Once again I have hope...for it to be stomped again on Im sure.
My early symptoms of AF are mushy poop, cramps, and craving sweets. I have been craving sweets but none of the others. My poop today was pretty normal. Im sorry, I know that was too much information. *sigh* I am just ready for a yes or a no.
Spotting again. I dont know what is going on. I am just going to keep telling myself AF is on her way so I dont keep getting my hopes up. Every time I start getting some kind of hope something happens that makes me think Im not pregnant I get the feeling of disappointment all over again. Anyways, I am going to test and hopefully end it once and for all on Dec. 25 IF I DONT get my period by then.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. I had a temp drop today. One was below cover line. I took it again and it was above cover line. The average of the 2 was right on cover line which FF is considering it above even though it is on.
Thank you! I am ok with it though...its just not my time yet.
I am still on AF if you want to consider it that. This cycle definately is NOT normal. I got NO sign of AF before I started. I had 2 days of spotting and I NEVER spot. I am having the let down feeling in my breasts and I NEVER get that when I am on AF. The first day of real flow was medium and crampy which is normal. The second day, light. The third day, light to spotting. The 4th day, spotting. None of that is normal. I think it was still heavy enough and crampy enough so it wasnt just a period during pregnancy. I dont know. I think it is just AF trying to spark a little more hope in me just to crush it.
We have decided to just let it happen. If in a few months we dont get pregnant we will go back to trying but I dont know. I think last period my have been a chemical pregnancy but there is no way of knowing for sure now. Anyways, so back to letting it happen. DH deployment keeps getting moved around so we dont know when would be the best time as far as him not missing birth or much of the child's life. We decided to just let God do His work. There are too many toss ups in the air so we will leave this as a toss up too.
Ever since we decided not to actually try but not prevent, time has been FLYING!! I cant believe it has been almost 2 weeks already!! I am about to ovulate!! That is so CRAZY!! All in all, it is NICE not to have to wake up and temp. How accurate is that temp? Maybe my mouth was open when I was asleep so my mouth is cold. Is that an implantation dip? What happened on this day?? IT IS ALL OVER!!! YIPPEE!!! I knew it would be nice but I didnt know it would be this nice. Now that I havent been looking for every little thing with my body Im not OBSESSING over every little thing. I have much more time in the day now cuz Im not always online researching and comparing. IT IS GREAT!!! WOO HOO!!!!! MUCH less stress!!
I have a link to my journal in my siggy but I hardly ever write in my journal and it is kinda boring. If I have time I will try to do a joke of the day til I run out of jokes. Do not no matter what EVER take offense to my jokes!! They are just meant to be fun and a boredom buster. I will put in the subject line what it pertains to...eg: woman joke (may be taken as sexist), arkansas joke, redneck joke, etc. If you see the subject line and think you may not like the joke or take offense, DONT READ IT!! I am in NO way sexist, racist, or ANYTHING else to do with prejudism against ANYTHING!
One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside cottage after
several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.
Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out.
She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to
read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.
Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, "Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?"
"Reading a book," she replies, (thinking, "Isn't that obvious?"). "You're in a Restricted Fishing Area," he informs her.
"I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading."
"Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start
at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."
"If you do that, I 'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the
"But I haven't even touched you," says the Game Warden.
"That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could
start at any moment."
"Have a nice day ma'am," and he left.
MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.
