Okay...

I apologize for being MIA most of today. I've been completely embroiled in the fallout in Iran. I've been glued to CNN and Twitter for most of the weekend. I've been keeping up minute by minute on the developments, watching those brave people take to the streets in the face of tear gas, water cannons, some kind of burning liquid dropped from helicopters and even live rounds. It's amazing how the suffering of others has completely taken my mind off of my baby making woes.

But on the baby making front... I'm currently on CD 13. I have been doing the Robitussin thing. 2 tsp, 3x's a day, which is REALLY hard for me, because I HATE... HATE... HATE cough medicine. I often make a sound like that of a cat trying to cough up a hairball after I've taken it.

BUT... I must report that today... for the 1st time in a very long time... my CM actually stretched a bit! It's still mostly watery and not completely "clear", but it stretched. And for me... that is something. That being said... I shall continue to swallow the vile stuff as much as I detest it. If it gives me a baby... then it's all worth it.

Oh yeah... I also pulled out my Fertile Focus Ovulation Microscope earlier in my cycle, and today I saw the beginnings of some ferning in my saliva. So it looks like we're gearing up for O!!

C'mon eggie!! I'm gonna getcha!!

it's sad what the people of Iran are enduring by the way! My heart and prayers go out to them.

As for you----Whoo hoo! sounds like things are looking up for you. I hope you get EWCM in the next few days and catch that egg!!! Then you can have a lil leprechaun!

Haven't actually O'd just yet.

Just took an OPK... so it's lookin' like SOON! Danny thinks the test line is still a touch lighter than the control line. I think I disagree. I told him "We're still doin' it anyway!" Like I have to twist his arm! HA!! Cross your crossables for me!!

Hey my trip was awesome except having to come home to our house being swarmed with bees on the inside.. literally by hundreds! Many of them are dead but they are still coming in. The exterminator thought they were coming in from the fireplace... I think they are in the walls. Right now we are baracaded in our bee free bedroom.

Anyway Yay your OPK is looking great!! I feel so weird stalking friends on here and knowing when they are going to BD way too much TMI but I guess we're all way closer than we would be with a lot of females in our lives... we don't judge each other! Have fun BDing!!

I woke up this morning to... EWCM!!!!! I did my usual "checking the oil" routine and low and behold it was clear and STRETCHY!!!!! I can't believe it!! I swear the last time I saw that was 15 years ago! God I sound old!!

Got some good BD'ing in last night. You'll crack up at this one!! Afterwards, as Danny is rolling over to his side of the bed he says "There ya go." LOL!! We both had a good laugh, just the way he said it right after finishing was just too funny.

I was expecting my temp to drop this morning and it dropped to 96.9 So.... I am thinking that I might see a rise tomorrow, which would make today O day. Danny will definitely be getting his bones jumped again tonight!!

So

More over here now!!!!

I totally forgot to read the results from my Fertile Focus Ovulation Microscope until just now. Sometimes the saliva takes a while to dry and I forget about it. LOL!

OMG!!! The ferns on there are UNREAL!!!! It's like a freakin' forest!!! I half expected to see a tiny saliva monkey swingin' from one of the ferns!!!

I AM SO !!! I wish I could take a picture and show post it!!!

I am starting to wonder if today is O day. My temp did drop... while my OPK last night may not have been a full on +, it was still pretty freakin' dark and now I've got full ferning...

I think I'm gonna do another OPK in about 2 hours to see what's what. I don't wanna wait until 7:15 again and possibly miss it, kwim? Plus... I have quite a few of them, so it's not like I'm runnin' low on things to pee on. HA!!

I've still got EWCM... it's not a lot... but it's slippery, it's stretchy and it's there! OMG! OMG! OMG!! DAMMIT! Why couldn't today be Sunday?!?!? Then Danny would be home right now!!!! ACK!!!!

Okey dokey... I'm thinking that everyone who said last night's test wasn't positive were right.

I've got the results from this afternoon's test... and here they are.

I'm thinkin' that's a for sure positive. In person, the test line is definitely darker than the control line. But you know me... I always 2nd guess myself... so I'm huntin' for opinions!!

I can't believe this... this is turning into a fantastic day!!!!

I got EWCM for the 1st time in FOREVER!

I got full ferning on my Ovulation Microscope.

I just got a positive OPK.

And now Danny just texted me that his boss is taking another position which gives Danny a chance to move up to Director!! His boss loves him and his bosses boss loves him so he's got a really good shot!!

LOL...isn't it amazing what we get excited about when TTC!!

FWIW, I think both of your OPKs are positive, and you will probably O either today or tomorrow...everything sounds really promising for a really healthy eggie in there

Temp rose to 97.7!!! Look at me with my textbook cycle! LOL!!

Showed Danny my OPKs & Ov microscope when he got home from work last night. His response: "Oh yeah!!" We had some errands to run, but there was BD'ing to do first!! He wanted another round at bed time. I tried to put him off a bit because, TMI I know, but I'm a bit sore. He said "Um... are we or are we not trying to make a baby." How could I not give in to that? LOL!!

I've got a really good feeling about this cycle.

On the promotion front, Danny sent an email to his bosses boss telling her that he wants to apply for his bosses job. She wrote him back instantly saying she is glad that he is applying for the position and they will be sitting down to talk about it very soon. Yay!!!

Your chart should win the chart of the month contest. I know there is no such thing... but if there was I would totally vote for you because you had it down to a science! Everything seems to have been timed so perfectly! I hope you guys caught that eggie and that you can relax and recover now !
