Hi Christi,

I don't work at a university, I work at a VA hospital. So sadly, I can't answer your question about the committe nomination forms. Good luck though and hopefully it will go smoothly.

Thanks for the positive encouragement ladies. I'm not going to workout too hard the rest of this week and try to get my rest, in hopes of not getting sick!

Cycle # 14, CD 14

So, I think that my illness is due to allergies. I've had headaches all day yesterday and today, and everybody with allergy problems is having the same issue. That's what I get for living in Dayton! We're only #6 on the worst allergy cities, last year we were number 2. I knew moving here that my allergies would be a problem, but it's still disappointing as they were well controlled in Columbus.

I'm still gearing up to O, so that's good! I'm leaving for Chicago tomorrow without DH, so we will get in a morning BD session and then an evening BD session on Sunday. Then he's going out of town on Monday returning on Wednesday. So I better O by Monday at the latest (and I should as that will be day 18).

i'm glad it seems that your not ill, but it still sucks about your allergies...i dont know much (anything) about Daytona but what makes it so bad for allergies?

Thanks Jen, I hope I catch the egg and that the prometrium increases my progesterone so that it can implant!

We have a lot of ragweed and pollen in Dayton, that mixed with increased precipitation means that it's always in the air. I have horrible allergies, was on shots, but kept having allergic reactions to the allergy shots (apparently injecting me with the things I'm allergic too, gives me bad reactions--go figure! ). So now, I just try to avoid what I'm allergic too and keep benadryl/allevert with me at all times. Thanks for asking--even if you didn't want a long explanation!

Cycle # 14, CD 15

So, I had a huge temp spike this morning, but I don't know if it's from the prometrium or O? I took my first dose of prometrium last night, per my MDs advice. I'm still a bit horny (thanks to all of you ladies who put up with my rant yesterday ) and my cervix is still high, so I'm pretty sure it was the prometrium that caused the temp jump. Also, I'm having some O pains this morning, which if I O today, will be great, as DH and I BD'd this morning before I went to work! Hopefully the prometrium will help, not delay O and get me my BFP. I'll keep you ladies posted!

Thanks again for all of the support and encouragement!

Oh, ok. I thought you worked at a university. So, what kind of work do you do for the VA, then?

No worries about the allergy question...i was just beign nosey lol! its ironic that you were allergic to the allergy shots though

Have you tempted since friday? im keen to see whether you Od or not? and even though the hornyness (is that a word? ) can be a PITA its not the worst thing to deal with when TTC!

Cycle #14, cd 18

Well, as of today, I still haven't O'd! I don't know if taking the prometrium or travelling has delayed my O, but I'm pissed! My DH leaves to go out of town today and won't return until midnight Wed--technically Thursday morning. So if I don't O very soon, I may have wasted a month. And considering I'm on CD 18, if I don't O by tomorrow I feel like I wasted the month!

Yesterday I did not take the prometrium and will not take it until I O. My cervix remains high and I have some watery CM. I'm so pissed! Yeah, that's how I feel! I wish I didn't take the prometrium until after I confirmed O, but my MD told me to take it two days prior. Ugghh....

So far, work has been so sh**ty today as well! I wish I stayed home and slept.

On the bright side, I did have an absolutely wonderful weekend!

Sorry that your body is not behaving itself, i hope at least that it holds off Oing until DH returns from his trip so you can get some last minute BDing in

I saw your photos on Fb, looks like you had a fab time with your bestie!

Thanks ladies for all of the support!

Cycle #14, cd 19, dpo 1?

Well, I definitely O'd. I think yesterday, which works out okay, as we BD'd Sunday night. I think the clomid moodiness/irritability really hit me yesterday! FF thinks that I O'd on Thursday, but it's not taking into account that I took progesterone that night, as I thought I would O by Saturday. Again, I stopped taking the progesterone for 2 days--as I was afraid I wouldn't O. So, I have to start taking it again today. My chart is going to look crazy!

I have a busy week at work this week and I'm off Friday to go to PSU's homecoming, so I might not be around as much until next week--but I'll try to jump on.

Hope everyone has a good week!

Cycle #14, cd 20, dpo 2

So I'm pretty sure that I ovulated on Monday, as Tuesday morning's temp spiked (after stopping prometrium) and my CP was medium not high and my CM wasn't EWCM or watery. Well today, CP is still medium/low, CM is creamy, but I felt like I was having O pains. I had similar but less intense O pains on Monday. It could be trapped gas , but I'm not sure. If I did O today, this would really stink, as DH and I haven't BD'd since Sunday and he won't be back in town until after midnight tonight. Also, that would mean that I O'd on day 20, which is rather late. Even with meds, my cycle sucks!

Cycle # 14, cd 21, dpo 3

So FF finally adjusted to my actual O date. Though I know it is accurate, it was kind of nice to see me O so early and to be several dpo further.

So I was thinking, what if prometrium doesn't work? I know that I have a progesterone deficiany which causes my LP to be super short. If the prometrium or any progesterone doesn't work, I don't know how to fix it???? IUI and IVF won't help if my LP is only 5 days??? I guess, I shouldn't worry, as I can't do anything about this now, but I am at a loss of what I would do next. I have an ob/gyn appt on October 15th, so I can discuss my concerns with her.

In other news, I'm excited for my PSU trip! I haven't been to a homecoming game in such a long time! I'm also excited to see my sister, bil and niece! Plus, we have a long weekend. I took off Friday to travel to state college (6 1/2 hour trip) and we have Monday off for Columbus day! Woo hoo! This might be my last journal update until next week as I won't really be using a computer this weekend.

XOXO to all!

Yay for Oing - its always nice when FF cooperates with what you want to see! I agree with katie your super fun filled busy weekend will for sure help your 2ww pass quickly. It'll be the 15th before you know it. I hope you can get some more answers from your RE but I've got my FXd that you'll get your BFP this cycle and won't need any!

Have a fab weekend xx
