I am new to this site so I hope I am doing everything right! Here's the dealio:
I don't think I am ovulating and am worried because my husband and I are TTC. I know that it could very well be from stress but I dont know how to not stress about it. It is all I think about.
Here is some background:
I was on birth control for 6 years and got off of it in march when my husband and I Were married. We then began practicing the fertility awareness method (which I love) but it has been a bit confusing for me.
My first month off, I had constant creamy CM and I think I ovulated around day 14. I then had raised temperatures until day 23, when I started my period. I know that is a short luteal phase but I chalked it up to being my first month off of BC. During ovulation, my nipples were very sore as well.
The second month, I still had constant creamy CM and I think I ovulated around day 19, then had raised temperatures until I began my period on day 29. Still a short luteal phase. My nipples again hurt during what I think was ovulation.
This month, my husband and I are now TTC and I do not think I have ovulated. My temperatures stay between 96.8-97.4 and are all over the place within there. I am on day 28 and still nothing... I have constant creamy CM but that's nothing new. No sore nipples or anything. I decided to use an OPK since I was having trouble with the charting and it was positive on day 24, but no raise in temperature after... My husband and I are having sex every couple of days and hoping but I know I am very stressed about it. I know that this can delay ovulation but I don't know what to do or how to not worry and think about it. I have been checking my cervix but that is something I recently started.. It always feels open.
Any suggestions? What should I do? Am I ovulating or not? Help!!
Ps. I started taking vitamin B and folic acid as well.
