So here is the deal. DH and I talked at the beginning of December that yes, we'd start TTC. December was an odball month because we were in Charlotte and then I whacked my head on the garage door (long story, but it was pretty dumb/fuinny) and cracked a rib in the "fall". OY!!! So I figured my body would be thrown off as a result. It must have been as AF came to visit 2 weeks later.
Fast forward to Jan 1st. We had friends over, I had EWCM for 2 days (starting 12/30) and we BD'ed 4 days straight. I felt what i thought was O pain. We probably tried too hard because I AF started showing up late on 1/15. I was so hopeful that I tried to pass it off as implantation bleeding....but by 1/16...full force.
I am a 28-29 cycle day person. I am not temping or using OPK's. I probably should be. At the same time, I don't want to stress myself out. I've done that enough already. So if nothing happens by this cycle. I'll resort to OPK's. I'll temp as a "last resort" so to speak. I'm so worried that temping will just make me anxious. Not that it does for EVERYONE but I know my emotions. I'll think about it non stop, and probably be too stressed to conceive.
Ok for this cycle, my possible fertile window was 1/27-1/31. DH and I BD'ed late on the 25th before I left for CA for the weekend. I checked my CM all weekend and did not get EWCM until the night I came home on 1/29. We BD'ed then. I figured "every other night"...well, Weds comes and goes, and we BD'ed last night.
I am so not counting on anything happening this cycle, but if it did. I think it would be fun to tell the family in PA when we go out for Chinese New Year. Not going to keep my hopes up though.
Found out that a friend of mine who got married 2 weeks after we did is now pg. They were not actively trying. At least i do not think they were. YAY for her (with a twinge of jealousy from me...so wrong to feel this way...)
