I figured this would be the best place to come for this. First of all this is exactly the reason that I stopped temping and doing OPKS- they drive me crazy! I’m on CD21 and FF is saying that I ovulated on CD18 but I have yet to get a positive opk. I use both wondfos and the clearblue advanced with those damn smileys that never want to smile at me!
Anyways. My cycles are very regular at 32-33 days. I was expecting to ovulate sometime between CD19-22. I have never been able to actually confirm ovulation so that was me just assuming. I did make a note on CD17 that my opk in the evening was darker then in the AM- I test first thing in the morning and then sometime in the evening. I don’t get a lot of CM which sucks(never get ewcm…-sad face-) so I can’t predict off of that and I don’t like checking my cervix because I always end up irritating it and I feel like it does more harm then good. The only reason why I am doing this all again is because I plan on going to the doctors to see what’s up in January, at that point we will have been trying for 15 months, and I would like to have some info to start with. I got pregnant last May but miscarried which is why I stI’ll have yet to go to the doctors. I had planned on doing the deed every other day but then also a few days in a row once I got a positive opk but obviously could not do that lol.
So in your expertise do you think I actually ovulated? Can you ovulate without getting a positive opk? Here’s my chart:
I discarded my Temps on CD5 and 8 right after I put them in because I may have had a drink or 5 the night before. I know a few of my Temps have been taken at a different time but this morning I was maybe 10 minutes outside of the time block.
You both have made me feel so much better. I have been so worried that I’m not ovulating! Thank you ladies!
So I had my bloodwork drawn Friday morning and before I left work that day, they had already called to say my bloodwork was “base line”. I checked my online portal and it was on there too and everything looks pretty good. This morning there was a new message about the ultrasound they did and it said there were no cysts! I realized that I was really worried there would be major red flags right away so I’m already celebrating the small victories. Darling Husband dropped off his SA sample this morning. I wanted to try to take some pressure off him so I told him I’ve read on here that lots of men have to do it more than once and to look at today as a trial run. He did worry me a bit when he said “ok now I have to keep it at room tempurature” and I was like “no BODY temp!” Haha. I can’t wait to hear how it went. We can’t believe how great the clinic has been. Everyone we’ve dealt with has been so nice and they act like they all love their jobs. I’m so impressed! I have my SHG & HSG Wed and Thurs this week.
How was everyone’s weekend?! Saturday was the biggest football game of the season around here, LSU vs Bama. So we spent all day at gameday, tailgating, then went to the game. We lost, but it was an awesome game and the energy in the stadium was amazeballs! And we made it on TV on ESPN’s gameday! We are famous now! lol

Random Question: What fad/trend do you wish would come back? What do you wish will stay gone forever?
I wish that the lifestyle of using buying one quality item and using it forever would come back, instead of buying many cheap items and throwing them away and replacing them. This seems so prevalent here in Australia right now and I’m sure it’s the same in most western countries these days. It’s such a waste and so bad for the environment.
I hope that super low rise jeans never come back. Think Paris Hilton and Britney Spears where you could see the top of the pubic bone. No, just no!!
My chart has barely any temps on it so far this cycle, which I really need to work on. It’s an all-over-the-place cycle because I’m on holidays this week, then will be away for a fortnight and then will start a new, much earlier routine so I don’t really know what time to keep etc. But I’ll def have to be making a bigger effort to get those temps recorded.
Soooo I start my new job next Monday and they called me yesterday and said they are sending me to Sydney (the one with the Harbour Bridge, which is a 2 hour flight from where I live) for a fortnight for training. So I leave early Monday morning on my first day of work and come back late Friday night, stay for the weekend and do the same the next week. I am going to be so exhausted and I’m not sure how I feel about being away for my first two weeks and not coming home to my Darling Husband and doggies!! I’m just going to try use the night times as ‘me’ time and eat healthy and go to the hotel gym every day. BUT this also falls over our fertile window UGH! So we will have to BD the Sunday and maybe even Monday morning before I go, and then the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and maybe Monday morning when I come home. Hopefully because we will miss each other and also because I will be so distracted with my new job, I won’t be stressed out about TTC and it will just happen for us this cycle! I’m also wondering if I just DON’T temp this cycle because I can’t do anything if I miss ovulation but also because last time I travelled my temps were all over the place and I think this was due to being away, being in a different climate, sleeping in a hotel with the AC on the whole time etc. Thoughts on this?
Right now I’m on my week off and it’s going well! Yesterday I went shopping and spent soo much money on clothes for my new job but they are beautiful and fit so well as I was so fussy about what I bought! Perfect ‘business casual’ attire with black, navy and white mostly so everything mixes and matches. I might not be that excited about my new job but I can def get excited about new clothes haha.
PS: I also wanted to show you where I live!! I know so many of you are heading in to winter but this was my last weekend 🙊
Literally a perfect blue sky!
(Oh no, I don’t know how to rotate that picture sorry!!!!!)
Hey ladies, so Darling Husband was able to make an appt for the urologist for mid Decemeber and his next SA is next week. He is being such a great sport with reading about SA and things he can do to help out and he is doing a great job with it. He really wants better results for the next test but I keep telling him it takes almost 90 days to see a change. I just feel so bad for him. We are still TTCing this month. My temp is higher this month before O then it has so I am curious how the rest of the month goes. With the time change my sleep has been horrible so I am wondering if that has something to do with it. I had a job interview yesterday so I am hoping I get the job!! The company approached me and I figured it was ok to listen. I am very intersted now. I dont want changing (if I get the job) effecting TTC. So we shall see. I had people nagging me over hte weekend saying because I wasnt drinking I was prego. So they actualy made me drink. It kind of made me mad. The one person had issues TTC so the fact that they are nagging us about kids is kind of bothering me. They knew how hard it is so why would they do this back? We havent shared any of this info to friends/family because we dont want them knowing. Everything we are going through I have looked at TTC in a different light and would never nag someone about kids ever. It just baffles me. Happy election day to all USA! I hope everyone has a good day.
So BFN today at 13dpo so I’m calling it at this point. I’ll have to wait for AF to show before calling the RE for our first cycle with them. Also found out yesterday that Darling Husband didn’t get the job at the college we were hoping for. He still has the temp job so at least he has something but we were both disappointed in that as well. Here’s hoping 2017 is a whole heck of a lot better than 2016. Between DH’s grandpa and high school friend passing, a miscarriage, being diagnosed with infertility and Darling Husband losing his job, we could use some good news.
MissCorgi22 : Hello! Relaxing for me is never going well haha. Always something new to stress about over here. I hope that your tests this week are easy peasy and show perfect uterus and open tubes!!!
AFM not much here. Waiting for AF. BFN at 10dpo. Pretty much calling it. I will cal my Dr on CD1, schedule the CD3 baseline bloodwork and ultrasound, then start clomid, more monitoring, then Biopsy after O. Ugh!
