I think I may have Od yesterday on CD15 which is the earliest EVER for me. Not that I am complaining but it always seems to happen when I feel like I am getting the hang of things. I missed it on the OPKs somehow but this was a really weird week for me with the 4th and all. Who knows will have to see if the next few days confirm it.

Side complaint. . . I have been having so much less CM this cycle and last I am not sure what is causing it. If this isnt our cycle I will probably try and make an appointment with my doctor to go over some things because I feel like I have so many questions right now.

We had a nice relaxing 4th of July. I mostly worked on printables for the Etsy store and then we had a little date night and watched the fireworks over the lake from our front deck.

Here are some firework pics DH took



Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Yay for Oing!!!!!!!

Yeah, if this isn't your cycle I'd def get into the doctor. a check up after what you went through wouldn't be a terribly bad idea.

I am pretty confused now. Turns out I didn't O yet - my OPKs got lighter instead of continuing to darken so I never actually saw a positive OPK. Yesterdays was pretty light but I had way more EWCM than I have all cycle and what feels like O pains today (a pinching pulling sharp pain low in my abdomen that took my breath away for a moment - could that be O pain?)

So here we are at CD 20 with no O and lots of confusion. If anyone wants to take a look at my chart and throw out some opinions I would love to hear them

I am very not good at this but just based on your chart maybe you will O tomorrow? Have you done an OPK today? My vote is tomorrow.

Here is a pic of my OPKs from this cycle.



I somehow managed to run out of OPKs . . not sure how I always have so many!! So that is all the OPK testing I will be doing this cycle. Oh well time will tell anyway. Maybe I will have a nice high temp tomorrow that will show I Od today. I am hoping at least. The plan is to keep BDing just in case.

Sometimes just Bding is the fun part

It looks like your body is gearing up to O, but can't quite get there. My body does this all the time (without MA). I hope to see a huge dip or temp spike today and then an confirmed O shortly. Have fun in the meantime.

Oh thank you Shandy that is so sweet of you!!!!!!! I think I am just going to see where the rest of this cycle takes me and order on Amazon for next cycle (if needed).

Sam - I don't think so. . . looking at my chart it looks like I tried to O again and was unsuccessful so who knows what is going on. We are just going to keep on BDing for now and see what happens over the next few days.

In non TTC news: My sister is doing much better (after her car wreck) and her surgeon says she should regain use of her hand. I just saw pictures of the car and it is completely destroyed I am so very thankful she is alright.

I'm pleased your sister's surgery went well, it sounds like she was very lucky. Was there anyone else in the car too?

Your chart definately looks wonky, hopefully your ovaries will get into gear soon so you can O.

Hows DH's shoulder doing?

No problem! I really hope that you don't need them next cycle!!!!! And I am glad that your sister is going to be ok. Car wrecks are just so awful and scary.

She was by herself on the way home from work. She was hit on the side by another car that ran a red light and the woman in that car was thankfully perfectly fine with out a scratch.

DH is doing much much better with his shoulder. He is in pain still but he goes to his physical therapy twice a week and does it at home 2x every day. He can actually lift his arm out now (not above his head though) but it is pretty exciting stuff

I am now hoping O will be tomorrow! I just had more EWCM than I have the past couple cycles so I am really really really hoping that means this is it! I can hope anyway

Good luck! It's so frustrating when you gear up and don't O!! Hopefully when it happens it'll be a nice strong one!

Glad your sister has a good prognosis and your husband's shoulder is getting better. Only good things from now on, right?!?

I think my body tried to O again yesterday so I am really really hoping these high temps stick and I was actually successful!!!

So maybe 1 DPO today?? It wasnt a huge temp jump but I am still hoping so if anyone wants to look at my chart I always love input or comments I am wayy too obsessed with my chart!!

In other random life news - my sister is doing much much better still in pain but sooo much better. I have my girls night tonight and I am really excited and I just got invited to the Beyonce concert with some friends on Monday so I am pretty excited about that too Now if only I would O I would think this week really turned around to be a good one.

I hope you O'd too! It definitely looks possible from that temp jump. We would be 2WW buddies!

That is so exciting about the concert. Should be tons of fun!

So I am still thinking I Od on Wed and am 2DPO today but. . . I just had some gobs of EWCM - more than I have had the past 2 cycles total combined

Going to keep up with BDing just in case. . . of course I would have normal cycles all up until we were cleared to try again
