wth?

Hi everybody! I need your wisdom!


I took an opk yesterday (cd 11) at 0930 am, and it was positive. The day before (cd 10) was negative, but the latest I took one was about 1500. Yesterday at 2 pm, was stark white negative. I took 3 different ones, to be sure. I've never had such a short-lived lh surge. I *think* I read somewhere that a shorter lh surge is actually a sign of increased fertility, but I can't find the source now. I'm taking maca and vitex, and just switched from coffee to green tea. But I would be surprised if I o'd on cd 12, too...


So, here's the thing. I don't really want to bd today. I'm tired and I don't feel like it (waaaaahhhhhh) but I will if I have to :(

Yeah, I say BD just in case, but wow--that's really early! When do you normally O?

It might be a gear up, too......but keep your bases covered. Even if it is a gear up, O could be coming shortly.

Good luck! I'm going to have to try what you did this month....last month I didn't O until CD21!

Unfortunately, it didn't matter.... DH decided to chop down trees and was too tired to do anything more than sleep. Oh well. My temp stayed down, so we get another chance!
Thanks!

Oh Dee, I'm getting so tired of the fertility gods playing with me. I know you must feel the same frustration. I know everyone gets frustrated, but for those of us with a ticking clock....


Didn't o after all. Then, this morning, an almost positive opk, but later today, stark white. I'm very confused. My cycles have been quite regular, just with a short lp. I keep telling myself that quite regular hasn't gotten me knocked up, so maybe some shifting needed to happen. And, prior to bfing I never got a pos opk, so maybe my normal "fertile" lh surge is just really short and easy to miss? Arrrrgh.


I was o-ing around cd 17-18 until I added the maca, first of last cycle. Maca brought me to cd 15 last cycle. Now, I'm on cd 14....we'll see what happens.
I hope this is both of our months. TTCing is just too stressful. I'm so sick of thinking, oh this month I probably won't ovulate, because I'll be in freaking menopause.... Towards o time is always almost as stressful to me as the 2ww.

Sunday,

Something is definitely going on with you... I know you're usually a late ovulator--- I'm not really good with the whole chart reading thing and you know WAY more about fertility in general, but here's my thought anyway :o)

I had many many cycles where I saw a little bit of spotting and it always turned out to be the day after ovulation... so I think you did ovulate on day 12 and must have a difficult LH surge to detect... maybe just maybe that temp drop today was a *second* ovulation????? could be TWO eggies this month... I just think that with all you added, it's a possibility.. I guess we never know for sure but thought that maybe a positive thought would make the next couple of days easier to handle :o)

Hugs!!

Sunday,

If I had to guess, I would say you haven't O'd yet. Your CM is still EWCM, right? What's your cervix like?

The last two months, I couldn't go for sure by opk's or temps......I was really close and my body was gearing up, but I knew for SURE I O'd when my cervix closed up and my CM went creamy overnight. Up to that day it was up in the air......I didn't get CH last month from FF until 6 dpo!!! But I knew the day my CM changed over for sure.

Good luck to you, hun!

Hey, at least you're close....I've got 2 more weeks to wait. ; )

Hugs,

Dee

Wow, Sunday. I'm looking at your chart. What a fake out you had. Do you think FF's CH are right? It looks to me like you O'd a few days later than they said, even?

I had really dark opk's yesterday and this morning (CD10 and 11--unheard of for me)....I was hoping something was going to happen early, but gauging by your chart.......ugh, I guess I won't get my hopes up! At least it looks like you did O.

Dee,


Yeah, I think I o'd yesterday. I don't believe FF's crosshairs at all. I think my body was just trying really hard to make it happen, is why I got that first positive. But, my little fertility thief (lol) has gotten 3 new molars this cycle, so I'm glad I o'd at all.


I hope you get some early o-ing going on, it definitely makes things a bit easier.

Julia,


If it's the link I'm thinking of, on another forum not to be named that starts with an M (I think not bringing up other forums is one of the "rules" here), I've read it ;0)
