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 thought CD 9 too. But, it didn't give me cross hairs today even before I put in the EWCM. My usual O day is CD9 and my usual CL is between 97.9 and 98.0. The 98.2 during AF was very unusual for me so I'm thinking maybe today is O day. I was hoping and praying for a later O so maybe I'm getting just that. This is the first cycle in months that I've made my own EWCM so that has got to be a + note doesn't it? Unless my body is weird and makes it after O! Time will tell- I'm sure hubby won't mind a little dessert with his lunch:smileywink:

I think your own EWCM is a great sign! FX, LX, and EX'd :smileyvery-happy:

Yesterday had to be O day. Temp went from 98.2 to 98.6. About 2 pm I had the sharpest pain on my left side. It made me double over. It lasted about an hour but was still dull when I ate dinner last night. The pain is gone, so, hoping that was O pain. I can usually tell which side I O from but never experienced sharp pain like that. Taking it as a good sign and really getting my hopes up this cycle.

Yay for sharp pains!!!??? Seriously though, that could make a difference. Here's to the possibilities and renewed hope. Hope is what keeps us going in whatever we do right?

I had sharp left side pains yesterday evening too... at least sharper than normal. Could still be too early for O though...

Here's to a sticky little bean....:)

I always have a faint blue line, sometimes slightly darker than faint, but never "as dark or darker" than control. Though one time I though half of the line was as dark so I put that as +. About to test today here in the next half hr.

I had a temp drop this morning so I decided to do an OPK this morning at around 10. To me it was as dark as the control line, so I have a four hr timer set and am trying to "hold it" to run another test. Doesn't that always make you have to go?

LOL at Michele!

Michele, do you know the sensitivity of the OPK's you use? If they are the really sensitive ones, you may want to order some that are less sensitive so that they only pick up your surge. I'll have to go look at the amount of Lh they detect but I do know some are more sensitive than others.
