Hello! How I’ve missed you all!
I’m sitting in the airport right now waiting for my flight back home. I attended my friend’s wedding on Saturday and spent the weekend with my family which is why I have been MIA. It was a great mini vacation and very much-needed. I feel like I am going back home renewed and with a better attitude.
As I mentioned earlier in week I was experiencing some very confusing signs (or lack of) of ovulation. Everything was good, cervix position, cm, after ovulation signs like sore nipples, but my temperature remained stubbornly low. Until Friday! Up until Friday morning it had started creeping up, but nothing that would actually indicate a thermal shift. But that morning it shot straight up and has stayed there ever since.
I was SO relieved.
At this point in the cycle I don’t even care if I don’t get pregnant, I just wanted to know that I was still ovulating on my own. I know I’ve said stuff like this before, that I don’t care or that I don’t expect it, and then inevitably I end up a sniveling mess when my period shows. But this month is different. I was so nervous that I was no longer ovulating, so scared that we would have no other option but to return to the RE…and now that isn’t the case and I am so grateful for that.
So FF has indeed confirmed ovulation but it is showing it a day later than I believe I actually ovulated. I am 90% certain that I ovulated on CD 22. It matches up with all the other signs. By CD 23, when FF said I O’d, I was already experiencing tender nipples (which I get due to progesterone in my system) and my cervix was low and cm was dry. So it doesn’t make sense to me that I would have O’d that day. But like I said, at this point I’m just grateful for the confirmation.
I still suspect that I have low progesterone and that is why it took so long for my temp to rise. But I will go in for my blood work tomorrow morning and then my appointment with the Endrocronologist is next week. Hopefully by next cycle we will have a better idea of what we can do to help get and stay pregnant without using fertility drugs.
That is the hope at least.
Now, I have a LOT of blogs to catch up on. My poor google reader is stuffed to the brim. Off I go!
