Heather!!!! Ahh! I'm so excited to see you here TTC again! Good luck this cycle, I hope it's a quick journey this time around.
ARGGHHHH! So frustrating, I have no idea how my body functions. Last month I had 1 positive opk, just 1! This month, I have 3 whole days of positives, I've been testing 2-3 times a day, since last month I felt like I missed my surge. Now it seems I'm having a super long surge.
Also, when are you supposed to check your CM? I check mine randomly, whenever I think to do it. Is there a set time you are supposed to do this. When I woke up, I checked and it was lotiony, almost dry. So I thought well I must have ovulated yesterday. But then just now I checked again and it was the most egg-white I've ever seen it in my life. Plus with the positive opk, I'm starting to think I'm going to ovulate today. I've also had O pains for 3 days now. I usually have O pains for like 4 hours and that's it.
I'm temping but its pointless, because my dog wakes me up in the middle of the night or like today at 5am and asks to go outside. She doesn't take no for an answer. So I take my temps at different times everyday. And sometimes I have to get out of bed before or while I'm temping. Yesterday I was in the middle of taking my temp and she started howling (beagle) and I had to grab her, so she didn't wake up our duplex neighbor. I'm starting to think if I'm going to continue temping, I will have to take my dog to obedience school.
FH tried to whine and complain about not enough BDing last night, and I went all "LOOK AT MY CHART" on him. The longest we've gone without is two days, or 5 days while AF is here. He shut up pretty quick, LOL.
Elizabeth - I'm pretty sure different Os can be different 'strengths' and have different hormone levels. Sometimes one ovary can be more dominant I think. As for the CM, I think you should make note of the most fertile CM of the day. EWCM is definitely a great sign! I say get on that one! LOL
Jessica - I've SO been there. Taken my temp more than once because I didn't believe what it said. LOL. I'm totally trying to not get so obsessed as to temp this time around...my cycles are pretty consistent and I get pretty good EWCM so I'm going to just go with that for now. If nothing happens in a few months...I guess I'll re-evaluate thing. Must. Not. Get. Obsessed. (like last time, lol)
Oh Jessica, I forgot to comment on the FH (what does that stand for, I know DH?) complaining about not enough BDing. I had to laugh. Just wait it you're pg! After 15 cycles of trying for my daughter, I needed a break after my BFP. Then I had a newborn...blah blah. Anyways, DH is happy to TTC just for the BDing and doesn't want us to be pg too fast. :P
