I have a weird feeling that I am gearing up to O A LOT sonner than I thought.
My CP was medium (yesterday- I have not yet checked today) and I am having creamy CM and my temp was 97.3 (which is my high a couple of days before O and then I usually dip right before O).
Weird. I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think that I better get to BDing just in case! I bought some of those OPKs, but I'm not sure when to start using them. I posted the question on the TTC 0-12 board.
I DO have a little head cold, but no fever, so I think my temps are OK. Just a wickedly stuffed nose and headache. (Thanks to my little ones!!! No body tells you before youy have kids that they pick up every illness known to man and bring them home to mommy!!! Luckily, I NEVER get sick at the same times as my kids, its always afterwards....like my body knows that it can't get sick until the kids are beter...aren't mommmy's cool!!??)
I am going to the eye doc today to discuss LASIK!!!! I am so very excited!
ok. So things are messed up, I think.
My temp this morning was 97.8 WAY TOO HIGH. If I put it in FF, it will probably say that I O'd....did I? Or do I have a fever? My cold is still here, making it hard to breathe. but I took an OPK this morning (after the high temp) and I saw nothing...not second line at all (but I used FMU, which upon reading the box, it said NOT to use)
So I'm not sure which things to discard....
the high temp? - did I O or fever?
The negative OPK? - b/d FMU or b/c I O'd?
I know what I would say if one of the ladies on the boards poasted this messgae. I would tell them that they just have to wait and see if the temps stay high. If they do, than I Od. (which would be a GREAT thing, b/c we weren't expecting me to). If the temps come back down, then I could have annother chance to O (of course, being sick could've pushed that back).
I forgot how difficult the TTC process was. How confusing our own bodies are and how everybody lied to us in highschool when they said you can get pregnnat "anytime" and that there was no such thing as a 'safe time' for unprotected sex. ya right, what a bunch of woo-haa.
To compound matters more...I'll be going away for the weekend and taking my temp in a hotel room. New envronment, newbedding...possible different temps. Sheesh!
The only silver lining is that we BD'd last night. So if I did O, then at least we have a decent chance....I guess you have to lok for the positive things.
Back from my weekend away and I can report that my temp this morning was 96.8. Very normal for me, so that temp yesterday was a fever spike, not an O spike. I 'fudged' the temp for FF though b/c if I use it, it says I am 4dpo....which is just NOT possible, so I will discard it, or make one up that is in the middle. ...one temp isn't going to make that much difference, I don't think.
So the O watching has begun again. To be prepared, I think we will BD everyother day from this point on. Hopefully I will actually O.
We are renting a UHAUL and turing the trip to Boston (about 2.5hrs one way, longer in a truck) because we are picking up furniture that MIL is giving us....the king bed and a complete betdroom set that I'm going to use for DS. I am excited, but it is going to be an exhausting day!!!!!
Meanwhile, I am cd13 and my temp went up .5 deg this morning. But t is not above my coverline, so I can't tell yet if I o'd. I'll have to wait another few days. Hopefully I did or I will soon.
Oh and tha Lasik thing was great. I am def going to do it, but not quite yet. They said they waon't do it on pregnant women...b/c of risk of infection. So I am going to wait, just to be safe, until after the are done having kids. Plus, it is $2300 per eye and I need to save up that kind of money!! But I am excited to do it!!
Ok I'm off to get pinched fingers and bruises and strained muscles!! :)
Yesterday went great. It wasn't that bad, I'm not too sore at all. We got home at 9pm and unloaded to UHAUL in the dark! My brother (the one that just graduated) came over to help and used the headlights if his car so we could see. It was too funny and the neighbors probably think we're nuts!
But it was all worth it b/c we got to sleep in a KING BED last night *sigh*. It was great!
on the TTC front....I have lots of thoughts.
My temp went up from 96.8 to 97.3 yesterday and stayed at 97.3 today. I played with FF and if I put in another high temp for tomorrow, it says that I O'd that first spike to 97.3, on cd12.
Yesterday, while eating dinner, I felt O pains- or at least a sharp pinching over my left ovary that felt like O pains. But I never got a +OPK.
and my temps overal seem lower than in the past, but I am using a BBT thermometer and in the past I had used a regular one. Does that make a difference?
Just like everything else...only time will tell. The good news is that if I did O between cd12 and cd14, I think we are covered BD wise.....
I just typed this lloonngg post and it's vanished! GREAT . That makes a perfect start to my day even better!!!!! ***sarcasm***
I will just say that DH opened the window last night and I woke up freezing! MY temp was BELOW 96! Obviously, I can't use that temp and today was the day that I was going to get cross hairs and know if I DID O on cd12 and know if I am in the 2WW.
I am so upset, I just want to go to bed again and start the day over.
Why does this charting thing have to be so difficult!? Why does stuff have to go wrong when it is most important that it DOESN"T go wrong!?
So now I am just waiting to go to sleep so I can wake up and chart again tomorrow. PLEASE let my temps show that I am dpo.......****praying****
Temp this morning was 97.5.
FF gave me cross hairs and an O day of cd12, so I am 4dpo.
There are a lot of signs that say I O'd....and there are some that go against it. I'm not sure what to believe, but I'll go with it for now, what choice do I have?!
I should just be happy b/c I did not expect to even remontely be able to O this month, so it is a wonderful thing, if I did O on my own. Also, if I did O on cd12, the chances are good of conceiving.
So- I'm just going to keep watching the signals and listening to my body and hopefully my temps will continue to rise. and I'll get that cd21 test from the Doc on tuesday.
Signs of O ----- O pains, wet cm, .5 deg spike in temp, dry cm now.
Signs of not O---- Neg OPK, temp not as high as in the past for post O temps.
We'll see what God has in store for me.
Well. My temp this morning dipped below my coverline....implantation dip? Maybe. But I flip flop between thinking that "THIS IS IT!" and "NO WAY IN HELL!"....I'm nuts.
Basically, I am just waiting until tuesday so I can get that blood test to confirm that I O'd. and I have to watch my temps in the meantime and pray that they stay up (or go back up) from now on. I would really LOVE a february baby.
In other news. Crew is over for the season. Kinda sad b/c I liked coaching the boys, but I am glad to have the extra time off, especially in the summer, although I will be coaching a 3 week camp in July. I may try to row myself for a few weeks.
Also- my Dh, Jon, is getting his MBA and he just landed a GREAT summer internship that pays him *almost* as much in 12 weeks as he was getting paid in a year at his old job. So that is GREAT!! Plus, it will look great on his resume.
See? I've just got to think about OTHER things than TTCing, sometimes....who am I kidding. I'm still obsessed! :)
At least my temp went back up this morning. and I am 99% sure now that I did indeed O on cd12. But I'm still going in for that blood test on tuesday....I also have some confusion about that dip yesterday. I guess it could be implantation...the weird thing though, is that I never had an implantation dip with DS, and you'd think that if you were a 'dipper' than you'd dip every pregnancy (or not). I guess when they say every pregnancy is different, they mean it! [unless thats just wishful thinking on my part :)]
DS, Ryan, is sick again. I don't think he really ever got over the last thing, and it got into his lungs. Something that would give you or I a cold, goes directly into his lungs. I had to put him on a nebulizer every 4 hours. My poor baby. Its a good thing he is so strong, and big, and healthy usually....
7dpo, cd 20
I'm not so good today. My temp dipped again today below my coverline. If I am 7dpo and if I WAS pregnant than my temps would be going higher and higher....so I don't think I'm pregnant. I think a february baby is out, which depresses me b/c then I won't be able to coach next year....I know, I know....its not over till the fat lady sings....but I think I know my body well enough to say that this isn't it for me. Now I'm just waiting for AF to show up so I can try again in June, which might be tricky b/c I am leaving for a week at the end of June and DH is staying home. I hope I don't O then!
If I am not pregnant by the end of August, we have to put TTC on hold for a while. (Due to Jon's graduation in May and the possibility that we have to move, etc.) I really wanted to have my last baby here in CT with my Doc at the same hospital I had my other two kids at.
I guess what happens, happens, right? I'll take a day or two off from the computer. Memorial day and all that. See you soon.
