I'm new to this, so I thought starting a journal could be useful. We're TTC, but trying to think of it more in terms of it happens when it happens. It's my first cycle, and I'm in the process of learning how to keep track of everything, so please bear with me.
So, cycle #1 ...
We BD'ed on CD10-12. I think I had ovulation pain on CD15. I had a sharp pain in my side for a second, and then pressure in my lower abdomen for a couple hours. Though after entering my information into FF, it said that I ovulated on CD14. I'm tracking my CM, but not my temp yet.
It's now CD17. I wasn't feeling so hot today. I'm anemic and on some days, my energy isn't that great but resting for a little bit helps and then I'm able to get stuff done. But today my energy wasn't that great, and it rapidly declined in the evening ... about 8-11pm. Felt like I was going to throw up earlier in the day.
We BD'ed on Sunday night, and then Monday both in the morning and evening. According to FF, Monday was my last fertile day even though I ovulated last Thursday.
I'm planning on testing this Friday though I'll be only 8dpo, so I'll test for a few days after also.
I've been having some strange symptoms, though I don't know if it could be something else. Though, AF isn't due until the 22nd, so it's a bit early for PMS type stuff. I've been feeling some pressure in my lower abdomen, more of a pain/discomfort a couple times, sore nipples for a couple days and rather frightening vivid dreams every night. The dreams thing is really strange. I usually only remember my dreams like once or twice a year.
