Looking forward to hearing what the ultrasound has to say! I hope you are feeling all the way better soon - being sick is awful!

Ultrasound was uneventful. Kinda a waste of time and money, actually, but whatever. My PA was out with her sick kid, so my OB went over the u/s with me, which meant an extra hour of waiting for the 2 minutes it took him to tell me everything looked good. Love wasting PTO on doctor's appointments Anyway, I had a very good follicle on the left, and a slightly smaller one on the right. He thought I'd be Oing from the left shortly. That was on Wednesday, and I got a + opk yesterday, still + this morning, with stron O pains starting yesterday. I'm thinking I'll O today, but we'll see what tomorrow's temp is. We are on track with BDing - I think FF will give me a 'high' score if we get one in tonight

Looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I think we may go to dinner tonight with my mom and sisters. My mom is wanting to discuss house plans with us - DH is likely building her a new house. Tomorrow is the Daytona 500, which Scott is really looking forward to. I am looking forward to cooking the scallops we picked up from the local fish market tomorrow evening. This will be only my second time cooking them at home, at the first time was with some not great grocery scallops. I am excited to try these higher quality ones. I know, my life is boring

Oh yeah - just a note to myself - no EPO or RRL this cycle, just doing the Fertile CM.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Glad the scan was uneventful, even if it was a waste of your time waiting to see the doc! Fx'd for O'ing soon

Sounds amazing that DH is building your mom a house! is that what he does for a living? DF's dad is a builder and he has (for the last 2.5-3yrs) been building himself and DF's mum a house on land at the back of their current house - its so great!

So, of course, I forgot to set my alarm Saturday night and missed Sunday's temp. I swear I always miss a critical temp. Oh well, I know I O'd either Saturday or Sunday, and I'm 90% sure it was Saturday night.

Not the greatest week so far. Having major issues with my now estranged dad - long story. My rib injury, though healing, is still keeping me up at night. And, I am a fan of the team that got royally hosed on national TV last night. Sorry, I'll stop whining now. At least I can cheer myself up by imagining our tiny little fertilized eggy traveling down my left tube

Hopefully that beautiful eggie met wonderful sperm, decided to live together and will soon implant into your uterus!

Okay, we've been on this board for far too long, we need to move to a ddc and ttc #1 graduates soon!

But seriously, I really hope you get your BFP soon, everything is crossed for you!!!!

Sorry, I forgot to answer you Jen - DH owns a construction company that does mostly trim carpentry and painting. He has done almost everything in the industry, and built our house himself 3 1/2 years ago. We have never quite had the capital to get into full time building, but would love to! Hopefully having my mom's house as a spec will help.

8 DPO here. Nothing unusual going on. If this cycle goes like last, I will start spotting Friday. Not sure when I'll test, probably depends on temps.

DH has had to work this weekend, as two of his guys are on vacation. Days like this make me glad I'm not self-employed I intend to get a bunch of house work done this morning, so I guess I'd better get off JM!

Well, temp drop today, but, it feels too early to be a "real" drop. Implantation? I debated whether to even let myself think this, let alone type it, but I have been having a lot of unusual cramping today...Ah, who am I kidding - my hopes are up. They shouldn't be, but they are. IF this were implantation, I wouldn't test positive for a few days, so I definitely won't be testing until at least Wednesday, and only if my temp is back up the next 2 days.

Hi Karin!!!

Less, but still some, cramping today. As I said in my main board thread, I don't think I've ever seen my temp rise after dropping like this, and I've been doing this for awhile! Today's temp is also really high just on it's own. I can't wait to take my temp tomorrow! And yeah, I'm pretty sure I will test if it's still up
