Waiting for O
71
Wed, 09-21-2011 - 2:37pm

Does anyone else here feel that waiting for ovulation is way more stressful then the 2ww? Maybe it is because I am not sure that I have a regular cycle yet, but I find myself very stressed before I O. I am compulsive about doing OPKs 3x a day so I don't miss my surge. I find myself checking my temperature chart

I'm so sorry no + yet Mel, but it still may be coming. Also, the OPK may not be catching your surge, it isn't uncommon to never get a +OPK but still O (from research I've done). Could be timing too, not sure when you test but many sites are saying to do it around 2pm every day. Early when you get up apparently doesn't catch the surge because the LH doesn't surge until a few hours later at best. Anyway, that is what I read, I haven't caught a + either... I wish I had a song for you but my brain isn't coming up with anything right now. I will think on it.

Stay positive girl, every cycle is different and it sounds like you are still learning yours. I still wanna hear about your appointment. Is it Monday?

Thanks Michele.

I test at least 3x a day, because I have had short surges in the past and I like to POAS, lol.

Did you catch that CD72 egg with an OPK? That is amazing!!! I would say it would be nice not to have as many periods, but funny how when TTC you really want some period regularity so you know when to count yourself out. Of course it seems when TTC AF doesn't cooperate in the least. Crazy b!!! ;)

Michele,

I was just temping. It was the first cycle after I lost my daughter at 38 weeks, so I think God was looking out for us.

I could have sworn I saw a + OPK on your chart. I'm so sorry you haven't gotten one but at least it didn't come early like last time. Maybe it will happen soon... Thinking positive thoughts for you. Hope you get some good news at the specialist today. I can't think of the first campfire song- I'm not musically inclined at all!

AFM, I don't know what to think of my chart. I knew it would go wonky when my temp didn't drop before AF. I'm on CD 12 and not sure I O'd when my temp dipped. No EWCM until today- anyone want to check out my chart and give an opinion. Going to "jump" hubby at lunch just to be safe!

Well, this is kind of like the blind leading the sighted but ,Vickie, to me, it looks like it's possible you O'd on the 9th, but your other signs correlate to today, assuming your temps go up again tomorrow, otherwise I bet FF will pinpoint the 9th. It is always hard to say though. I looked at your coverline from last month it was at 98.2, is that a normal coverline for you? Assuming it is, the 9th still looks good, but again I am still learning. I think
