Well. My head tells me that this is not the month for me. My temps have lowered to ( or below) my coverline and seem to like it there. but my heart keep telling me that I am. I think this is a serious case of 'wishful thinking' and that my mind as created symptoms.
So, I officially have NO IDEA whats going on in my body....in my uterus OR my head. But I have decided to not take my temperature every morning for the rest of the month. I will take it every other day or so, maybe. Its just too stressful. I think that I O'd....at least thats a good thing...so there is really no reason why I HAVE to take it every morning anyway....
So, to all my stalkers (assuming I have any....) I wanted you all to know what was 'up' so you didn't worry.
ok. Vent of the day over...time to get ready to bring my kids to the Memorial Day parade, eat too much food, go swimming, take my kids fishing in the stream and enjoy the day.
-you go enjoy it too!!
Hey look at that, page two...cool....
I took another HPT and it was neg (although AGAIN I took it in the middle of the day).....DUH!....and I did not take my temp this morning.
I DID go to the doctors and they took blood to test my progesterone to make sure that I indeed DID O.....and they agreed to test for pregnancy too since they were already sticking me with a needle....(and I didn't even have to beg!
This makes me very happy b/c now I'll know definitively if I O'd on my own ( I think that I did) and/or if I am pregnant (which I hope that I am). They are going to call me tomorrow. I'm going to go sit by the phone now.....
So, I'll update everyone tomorrow.
****waiting by the phone***
***tap tap tap of my fingers****
***getting grumpier by the minute****
Okay- got the results.....and I am an idiot AND totally insane. Good results, huh?
I am NOT pregnant (even a little bit) and...**wait for it***....I DID NOT O this month at all......the temp spike was my body regulating itself from the hormone in the IUD and the bleeding was uterine bleeding as a result of the IUD being taken out.
Sh1t!!! I was so sure that I O'd......well. I shouldn't be surprised! I very rarely O on my own!
So the plan of action is that I wait until the DOc is back in the office (friday) and she puts me on Provera and Clomid.
At least I have a plan.
I am still reeling from the news yesterday. and I've been playing with FF.....I learned a lesson this cycle. Do not mess with your temps as you put them into FF. I disgarded a few and "fixed" a few based upong the time I woke up, etc. and I now see that I was trying to 'make' my chart what I wanted to see. I'm going to try not to do that this next cycle.
The thing is...I still have a lot of twinges down there...I hope I am not getting more cysts....I have mild grade PCOS...
Hopefully the timing of the Provera and clomid will work out. I should get the RX tomorrow.

These 'twinges' are becoming very painful! Its been about ten days since they started. They come and go and they are a sharp pain. At times today I have been almost doubled over with the pain. I am not sure but I think that it is an ovarian cyst that has ruptured....
I put a call into my doctor and hopefully she will get back to me tomorrow, early. I don't know if she is going to want me to come in, get an U/S, or start Provera and clomid.....
I guess we'll just have to see. At least now I know that these twinges were not all in my head (b/c I thought I was pregnant last week and they were a sign). I'll update tomorrow.
I have an U/S for 2:30 to see if these pains are cysts or an ectpoic, or whatever. I don't think they are ectopic b/c I would've gotten a + on the pg test, right? Cysts, I can handle. I had a 10cm one last year (the size of a large gratefruit).
But they just told me that they would not give me provera and clomid for two weeks...to figure out what these pains are and let the cysts leave....bummer!
I know that makes sense. Cysts, especially large ones, can hamper the egg in its travels to meet with the sperm. But two weeks pushes me right out of a June conception and a March baby.
I'll think positive;y about this extra time and use it wisely...but , right now, I'm going to go complain to DH.
I'll update the U/S results later.
The u/s tech said that everything looks good. Good uterus, good tubes, nice right ovary and some eggs, good left ovary and lots of eggs, and a small cyst on my left side. She said that it looks EXACTLY like a dominant folicle getting ready to O. She said to go home and "introduce some sperm"......but it may be a regular cyst, which means I will not O...but it COULD be a folicle and I'll O......ummm....thanks, I think. How weird. 50/50 chance of Oing.
The idea is that 11 days ago when I thought I O'd, that my body was actually going to O, but due to the stress of moving a ton of furniture, helping my MIL move and my SIL's hysterectomy, that my body delayed the Oing and that would explain the twinges that I have felt since.
I guess its good news. Everything looks good and they can't find a reason why I won't conceive soon, although they also can't really explain why the 'twinges' hurt so much! But they won't give me an RX for Provera and Clomid for two weeks (which was my plan), so watching to see what this cyst does will at least give me something to do while I wait.
Wouldn't it be awesome if I did actually O? Time to get the thermometer back out and track down DH! Maybe I'll know something in a couple of days.
I took my temp this morning and it was 97.6... thats .8 degree spike and higher than it was even when I thought I might have O'd a couple weeks ago.
I am holding out saying that I O'd though --- I don't want a repeat of my idiotcy, but I will say that I am cautiously optomistic that I *may* have O'd.
The test wil be wether I still feel those twinges on my left side. Right now, I don't feel any sharpness, but some mild cramping. Needless to say, I DTD last night and we will again tonigtht, just to cover our bases (and we did wednesday night too). so *IF* I O'd, we should be ok in that department.
Only time will tell!
So the twinges in my left side were not as sharp yesterday, only midly crampy...and today they haven't been an issue at all (only if I run or jump).
My temp this morning stayed st 97.6
I am feeling better about saying that I O'd...but I'm going to remain cautious and only say that I hope that I did O. I figure another five days or so should prove it one way or another.
and forget symptoms....I vow that I will not angonize over any real or imagined symptoms this month. (of course I say that now)....
