this month is a wash

So today was my hsg which went ok, minimal cramping and some spotting since getting home. Also dh went at same time for SA. Guys are so funny. He acted like him having to give a sample was such a big deal. I was like hello do you realize what I am having done at the same time. Anyways, beyond that I am kinda upset because I think this month is a wash literally. I woke up this am and my temp went from 97.26 to 97.86 and I am having breast tenderness like post o. I took an opk this am which looked almost positive then this afternoon and it was lighter. Also I was having o pains yesterday. It is only cd 10 but......that is according to my first flow day. Last cycle was the first time I used progesterone and I started to spot through the progesterone at 10 dpo and didn't stop progesterone until 13 dpo so if I go by spotting through day I am at cd 15 which would be normal o time for me. So the last time we bd was Fri due to dh's sa today not that it matters because the dye probably washed out any follie I had anyways. So if my temp stays up and I did indeed o before my hsg I am not going to use progesterone this month.

Andi, that sucks. :( I know how you feel. This cycle was a total bust for me. At least you DTD that one time and may have a chance! We haven't done it at all this cycle. I have just been too bummed and then got hit with a yeast infection. Plus after my last u/s and my neg OPK's I really had no reason to DTD. There was no reason to believe ovulation was occurring anytime soon.

Anyway, sorry to make that about me LOL :) I just wanted to let you know you're not alone in being bummed about losing this cycle. I'm right there with you.

(((HUGS))) I hope that you get some good results from the HSG and DH's SA. I know how it is to feel so bummed. But, from what I have heard (and was told when I had my HSG), it can really "clean out the pipes" and make it easier for the swimmers to get up there for the next few cycles. So, hopefully that is the case for you! I hope next cycle is the one for you!

But, I wouldn't go by days of spotting when you're counting. I was told that spotting days aren't AF days. Day 1 of your cycle is when AF really arrives. So, you might still be early. I have also been told that LH fluctuates during the day, and also can be affected by concentration of your urine. So, you might want to still take those OPK's and see if you see a surge. You might still have a chance. And keep BDing! Good luck!

Temp was still 97.86 this am and so I really do think I ovulated the day before my hsg. If that is the case and it got flushed out I wonder if AF will be early since there was no fertilization. Only time will tell. I have to call in the next day or two to schedule my f/u appt to get all my results. He said at the appt my hsg was good more interested in my b/w results. Anyways I think I will just focus on exercise, relaxing, and getting a day shift (nights are killing me) this cycle. Sucks to be out for a month sorry you are in the same boat Chelle.
