    CD#- 8
    Temp.- 96.9
    AF- No
    Symptoms- None
    Meds.- I took Aleve Cold and Sinus last night

    The last time I took Aleve Cold and Sinus at night, my temp. was 96.9 the next morning. Same thing this time. I don't know if that is affecting it or if it just happened that way. I really try to avoid medications. Last night I had the worst sinus headache and pressure. I tried and tried to just go to sleep without any meds, but I couldn't go to sleep because it hurt so bad, so I had to go ahead and take the medicine. I don't usually have sinus problems. I think it has something to do with the changing weather. I also was really going to try to BD every other night this whole cycle, and last night would have been the night, but that medicine really made me sleepy. I was already asleep when my husband came to bed. Maybe we'll just try tonight. We'll see.... Well, I guess that's it for today.

    Symptoms- None
    Meds.- None

    Yesterday I had some weird things happening. My side and back started hurting like they do when I am about a week away from getting AF. I'm not sure what would cause that. I hope it was nothing. So far, I haven't had any symptoms today. I got them late in the morning yesterday and they went away by the evening. My CM has been sticky the last 3 days. I haven't had any "fertile" kind yet, so I'm keeping a watch on that so I'll know when to BD. My first OPK was negative yesterday. I'm hoping I get a positive this month. I would LOVE to be pregnant before Christmas. However, it wouldn't really be that bad if I didn't get pregnant until April or May. That will be the point where we've been trying for a year. Also, at that point, I would be able to graduate before the baby came. So, God may be planning for it to work out that way. I know that He'll do what is best for us, but I'm impatient. Part of me wants to finish school first, but the other part wants to get pregnant now!

    I still keep getting those PMS type symptoms. I don't think that I have ovulated according to my chart. There was one day when my temp went up quite a bit, but it was back down the very next day. That was the morning I felt like I was getting a cold, so I don't know if that's why it was high or what. The charting tool on here drew a coverline under that one, but the other two programs I chart on didn't. That was also during my AF, so I don't know if that had something to do with it or not. I've been so tired lately. I have not been getting enough sleep. I've only been getting about 6-7 hours and I really need about 8-9. There's just not enough time in the day for me to get that much sleep. We've only BD twice this cycle and once was during AF and once was the last day of spotting. I plan on trying every night, but I keep falling asleep before my husband gets to bed. Friday nights usually work out for us, though, so maybe tonight will be good. I have gotten a negative of the two OPKs I took, so I think we are o.k. Well, I didn't mean to ramble on, so I'll end now. I hope we all have a really good weekend!

    Well, I just posted my last 3 days of charting information. This is my 4th day of having egg white type mucus, but I still have not gotten a positive on my OPK. One day I saw a faint line, but the next two days showed nothing. Today I saw a faint line again. Maybe it really is going to happen soon. I hope so! We were able to BD on cycle day 10 (the first day of EWCM) and last night on day 12 (3rd day of EWCM). I will see if maybe we can start to BD everyday until my chart shows ovulation. It will be hard though because I start back to school tonight and I don't get home until late and then I am really tired. I at least feel a little more confident about TTC this month since I am charting. I feel like I am a little bit more in control.

    I had planned on sleeping in on Saturday, but we got a call first thing that morning that our friend's water had broken and they were going to the hospital soon. We had promised to take care of their daughter when she went into labor. So, we spent the whole day at their house. We went last night to the hospital to see the baby (boy) and he is so tiny! He weighs 7 pounds. What a cutie! My husband is really ready now for us to have a baby. He's been a lot more patient than me up to this point, but now he's getting a little anxious I think. Well, I guess I'll go now. My Monday posts are always longer than usual since I have to catch up for the whole weekend.

    I have a TON of Egg White Mucus today.

    O.K. This is my 5th day of EWCM and there is a lot today! We were going to BD last night, but I was sooooo tired. We can still stay on the every other night track if we can do it tonight. I still have a negative on the OPK today. The line is darker than yesterday, but still not dark enough to count as a positive. As far as my temps go, I don't think they show that I have Ovulated yet, so I guess we are still doing o.k. This cycle seems to be dragging by for me. I guess I have always had this EWCM for several days a cycle, but I never noticed it before. I just keep thinking that it will go away before I actually ovulate since I've already had it for so long. I was reading somebody else's journal a minute ago and she said that she did an OPK test with a store bought kit and it was positive and then she tested with the online one (same company I purchased from) and it was negative. So, I don't know what to think about that. I guess we'll just keep BDing at least every other night until my temp. chart says I O. Well, I guess that's all for now.

    I have some EWCM today, but I can't really tell yet if I have as much as yesterday.

    I finally got a positive on the OPK today! My first one. I am excited about that. I'm really confused about my charts now. I posted a question on the charting board, but haven't gotten any response yet. I hope somebody will reply to help me with it today. Some charts so I already ovulated while others don't. I don't know what to think now. I hope that my backache today is from ovulation and not a sign that AF is going to be making her way to me soon. I am anxious to find out if I did ovulate or not. How can I count how many days I'm DPO if I don't know if I've ovulated? Maybe since I got a + OPK today my temp will really go up in the next couple of days and I'll know for sure if I did. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Well, I didn't have a lot of EWCM yesterday. I don't have much today either. I fell pretty sure that yesterday was when I ovulated. I took another OPK test today and it was negative. No line at all. I might wait a little while and do another one because I drank a lot of water about an hour before I took this one. So, that maight not be a valid result. Unfortunately, we were not able to BD last night. (Performance anxiety). I learned that in the future, I should not tell my husband if I am ovulating or close to it because it makes him too nervous. We did BD everyother night all week, though. Including the night before I think I ovulated when I had TONS of EWCM. So, hopefully that was enough to get the little guys up there and help them to live until the egg came. My temp. went down this morning instead of up to indicate ovulation, but I have heard that sometimes the temp. rise doesn't happen until 2 days after. So, I guess I'll be able to tell by doing another valid OPK today and seeing what my temp. does tomorrow. I am now on day 16. AF should come in 9-12 days from now. If I ovulated yesterday, it would be fine for her to come in 9 days because that would mean I have a 10 day LP. If I am ovulating today, however, I hope she doesn't come until at least 10 more days. Since this is my first month charting, I don't know how long my LP is. I'm hoping it's long enough. Well, I'm getting pretty anxious to find out if I actually ovulated. It seems funny that I get so excited about looking at my temperature every day!
