PM test (well, later in the PM test)... I was expecting darker...

If I don't O this cycle, it's not the end of the world, but I will be disappointed since it's our last for a few months.

I love swimming, it always helps me have a good nights sleep too!

I hope those tests do get darker and the last one was just a fluke!

I am in soooo much pain. omg... shoot me now? It's not even muscle pain.. it's joint pain? But I so I want to go back to the pool. It's indoor, heated Chlorinated salt water... so you're almost weightless in it. This fat lady liked feeling weightless. I did struggle getting OUT though. But my hands feel like they've been pulled away from my body, and now BOTH feet hurt? ugh. Obviously I over did it... 750 yards (685.8meters, .68km or .4miles) first time in the pool doing laps in... like 5m was pushing it.

Of course, I won't slow down either. LOL. I used to do 500m in the pool 5 days a week as a pre-teen/teen no reason I can't do that now!

haven't taken my opk yet today.. I'll take it in a few minutes and update the post.

CD 15.... ugh....

Glad the line is getting darker, I hope DH's skin issues dont get in the way of dtd when the time comes!

When I was younger I suffered from arthritis (i was lucky and grew out of it - long story) but swimming really helped with my joint pain, i was able to do very little other exercise as it was too high impact but swimming with the weightlessness was great! I know that achy feeling afterwards tho!

That's a fast surge! I'm jealous that you'll get a nice fade in and out pattern on your sticks. Omg I'm crossing my fingers very much for you.

I usually don't get one like this though... usually it's a nice progression for 3 days, then "um.. is this positive or not... wtheck?" for days. UGH.. it's just not fun.

Of course.. I usually have a positive opk by now. I've never gotten one any later than cd 16 on an am test.... so I don't know what's going on in there *pokes stomach*

DH was up for dtd tonight though... hopefully he can handle a few more days of it. lol. He leaves next Friday, even with my non existent sex drive I will be sad to not dtd at least every other day until he's gone.


He asked me tonight... is your period due before I leave. I looked at my chart.. and no, it won't be. Which means the last few days of testing (the important ones) he wont' be here. That's both a blessing and a curse... I'd like to have him not peek over my shoulder when I'm putting pics up on FB of the tests, but I'd also like him here if we have another loss.. but it's just something we've got to live with.

Looks like tomorrow is going to be O day. Keep in mind, I rarely get blaring positive opk's if I'm not taking something to help me O (vitex, soy etc).



10-11am, 2:15pm, 4:30pm, 7:30pm

4:30 looks like if I'd have held it another hour (couldn't, had to leave the house) it would have been positive. but 7:30 lacks the "as dark as control" bit in the test line.

If today isn't the day, our chances will drop. Not just because it's getting late in my cycle... well when we went to clean up, I was covered in blood... and it wasn't mine. Dh's skin along his member was split and bleeding. He needs time to heal apparently. I'm not going to ask him to put out anymore, he will have to come to me.

Today did bring the slipperiest CM I'v seen all cycle, which is a nice sign. I was starting to think that Soy scrambled my bodies brain!


I have been told however, that we can get kittens. But.. there's a catch. He wants my least favorite sexual act (which he gets when he knocks me to up too..., but I offered that bribe lol). Of course.. he can't actually do it right now. UGH. But I've been looking for kittens online, and there are squat around here for actual kittens. Best I can hope for is DH brings home 2 from his parents house in April when he comes home... we want baby kittens, as freshly tossed from mom's boobies as possible.... everyone has 4-6m old kittens.. but we want them in the itty bitty stage (8-9weeks, we don't want to take them too soon from mom, but we'd be looking at domesticated barn cats if he brings from his parents. Meaning, mom lives outside, until she gives birth, then she's a house cat, and so are the kittens, then she goes back out after they'er weaned). Even Craigslist doesn't have any!!!!!!!

Guess he figures I deserve some sort of a baby.

Yeah he's suffering pretty badly from it. We can't figure out why it's happening, that skin's always been fine! He took an extra COQ10 before he went to bed last night, so hopefully a few days of that and he will be back to rights. I mean, I can handle not ttc for a cycle if I have to for reasons like this.. but my hubby's leaving me for 7+ weeks... I wanted to get in some extra nookie! LOL

I'm starting to think I O super quickly. Since I got the most positive looking opk at 4:30.. and the O pains started at 9:45... and they were bad. And I haven't had anything near that since I woke up... I just feel sore straight across my abdomen where my uterus and ovaries are (like I've done too many crunches, but haven't done any).
