Ugh. So, my average ovulation, when it happens, has been around CD 22/23 thereabouts. About a week ago, DH and our friends had a big party combination going away for our friend who's joined the Army and is leaving on the 8th, and birthday party for said friend and another friend who's birthday was recent and there was a lot of drinking and whatnot. I felt "safe" because I was only CD 13 and I hadn't DTD or anything.
Due to the late night and everything, I didn't check CM that night or temp in the morning or check CM that next night either.
Well, the next morning, CD 14, I was feeling 'frisky' and we DTD, however, DH asked to ... do something else. In other words, he didn't leave his "baby makin' gravy" where it'd do any good as far as TTC. I was OK with this because, again, this was just CD 14, I figured I had plenty of time before ovulation. (Afterwards he was really apologetic and said "I knew there was a reason we hadn't done "that" in a while, I just in my still drunken state completely forgot about trying for a baby.")
Well, the next night I had something that was kind of like EWCM (not the best I've ever had, but it was close to EWCM) so I told him that for the next couple days, I'd like to make sure we DTD in a manner that would help with TTC.
The next night after that, we DTD (he wasn't home or something on CD 15 which is when I had the EWCM).
Since then it's pretty much been sticky or creamy CM (as best I can tell. I'm still not 100% sure if I'm classifying it right) and then this morning I got what normally would be a pleasant surprise. The beloved crosshairs from Fertility Friend.
BUT! crosshairs were given on the day of EWCM, CD 15, so we didn't time things right again! And if only we'd DTD "correctly" on CD 14 we would have at least been somewhat in the correct timeframe.
I'm just frustrated because I 'planned intercourse accordingly' according to my past cycles.
However, on the plus side, because of taking soy on CD 5 - 9, it does look like I'm ovulating without medical means!
