So last month I Oed right after AF, loads of EWCM. I thought well maybe that was a fluke thing and I will go back to normal this month. NOPE!! Now I am having more EWCM than I did last month after AF. I am worried that DH and I will not get to catch that eggie. He hasn't been getting home until late and has been super dead tired and then with all the things with selling the house...it's been super stressful and I don't feel like DTD. I would really just love to cry right now...What a rough month it has been so far!

Good luck to everyone this month by the way!

If I'm reading your ticker correctly, you're on cd 12? That's actually the "normal" (for a cookie cutter person lol) to start noticing fertile cm. Remember, each cycle is different, unique. While you can look for patterns, you can't really assume you'll O at the exact same time each cycle.

Look at me for example. Last cycle I O'd on cd 18 and was 29 days long. This cycle, roughly cd 12-14 (cd 14 opk was darkish, nowhere near positive, next day was 100% neg) and AF started rearing her face yesterday on CD 25.. she'll be here before midnight on cd 26.

To me, it sounds like your body is getting on the right track

Now, tell that man to get his rear home so he can give his wife the love and attention she needs to bring that stress level down so you can get knocked up! (if only it was that easy right?)

I'm sorry you are feeling this way. I don't think this is my month either. I'm pretty sure I either didn't O or I missed the egg. *hugs*

Hahaha thanks Ashley! I really hope that my body is going back to normal after 5 years of no BCP. He really needs an early day off just to hang out with me!

Testing for eczema on tuesday and allergy testing on the following tuesday. April is turning out to be crazy busy!

I hope life slows down for the two of you soon! A nice romantic evening together might take a lot of stress (from all aspects of life!) away for a little bit!!!

Ditto Ashley - CD 12 doesnt seem too early for O. It can be so much harder than I ever imagined to DTD when life gets stressful and busy. I hope you guys are able to find some time to enjoy each other and relax. You just have to do what is best for you guys. I hope you get to feeling better soon

I SO understand being too tired to DTD. I don't know how people who already have kids ever make another.

You can only do so much. Hang in there!
