I know that's not the typical post most of us would want to see on here or post about. But let a cycle go for 7 weeks with no hope of pregnancy and no sign of her and your mind will slip to that awful M word. I was beginning to think she was gone forever and I wasn't ready to deal with that just yet.  While I do believe peri menopause  is the cause of this I am still glad to have AF back just to see if I get lucky with a normal cycle again.

I probably won't be starting anything more than prenatal, temping and charting, and definitely using OPK's but I do have a renewed sense of hope. Thank you AF for giving me another chance. Now be a sweety and leave after  a few days and let the "O" games begin!

Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by. I was just going over to tell you that she showed today. About the O'ing twice- doesn't it look that way? Can you O but have no period and just start another cycle? I still can not make sense of it and wonder what was up. TMI warning- AF is really heavy and I wouldn't think she would be without O occurring would she?  I am definitely taking that chart to the doctor with me.

Barbara- not stupid nor insensitive at all. My cycles have been clockwork 24-26 days but this cycle was really long(49 days). FF said I o'd on CD 15, then when I got to 18 DPO my chart showed no O. Well, FF took my O day away but the temps still looked like O happened.  My temps never came down (except for a dip or 2)  and AF never showed. Well, I kept testing and waiting for something to happen and AF finally appeared today. I just wanted that cycle over as I knew there was no "prize in the box" for me. You can view my chart by the link in my siggy if you want to look and give an opinion.

I sure know how that goes, ugh, all-too-well. Here's to a nice strong and long O! You deserve it after all she did to you, torturing you. She OWES you a nice strong O!!!

Hi Vicki:
Sounds so weird to be congratulating you on the witch. LOL But unfortunately she is a necessary evil. Now onto a NORMAL and productive cycle. Look out DH.....
