I just Ovulated I think. I had a lot of ovulation pain this month. I thought it was over but then I had some more pain this morning. Who knows what's happening with my body?! Pain was on the bad side (Where I have a blocked tube) So, now I'm in the two week wait. I started using some progesterone cream this month (For the first time) Hope I'm using it right and that it works!

AF should be here in a day or two. We didn't actually TTC in Dec., so for me AF will be a good thing! I'm kind of a late ovulater (is that a word?), so we probably won't "try" until late Jan.

Bring on AF then! No idea if ovulater is a word or not, my spell checker doesn't seem to think so, but hey, I love inventing new words! What cycle day do you usually ovulate on then? For me it's usually between cycle day 13 and 16, sometimes less, but not usually more.

I often ovulate fairly late in the month, like day 16 to 18. There's no sign of AF, and now I'm wondering if maybe I'm going to skip this month. For some reason I didn't ovulate last January either, maybe because of stress. This Jan. is definitely more stressful than last, so it could actually be Feb. before we even get to start TTC.

I hate it when AF messed you around! Could be that you ovulated later than usual, stress can change when you ovulate too. Sorry you've got lots of stress at the moment. you have a lot of change and uncertainty going on right now don't you? I can relate to that too. I try not to get stressed about being stressed (Cos I know that could affect TTC) but it's hard sometimes. Hoping AF comes very soon (don't get to say that often on this board!)

Well, she showed this morning. Usually I get some warning cramps, but not this time. Yes, the unemployment situation and other things are quite stressful. I am the worst about not getting stressed about being stressed. I know we're not supposed to worry about what we'll wear or what we'll eat, etc. but that's always been a struggle of mine. Anyway, so I guess this means about 16 days til ovulation.

Glad she showed up at last, so looks like your body is doing just fine! Hope the fact that you didn't get any warning cramps means that AF will go easy on you this month. She was really easy on me last month compared to what she's usually like!

Thanks! I'm really hoping that it will help. I think it's so mad that doctors in Spain don't test for low progesterone levels. I do have several possible symptoms of it and it's such an easy thing to solve if that's the problem (Well, part of the problem, I do also have one tube that doesn't work, but that still leaves one that does!)

Yes! That has to be so frustrating that they won't test for something with such an easy fix! It's good that you can get it OTC now while you're in PR.
