Waiting for O

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 haven't a clue they are Wondfo's from Amazon. I almost bought some :) ones the other day but I am a cheap skate, didn't want to buy more when I had so many of the others left. I was also thinking if I waited and didn't buy smiley face ones this month, I would buy that CBEFM next month and that would provide a more accurate picture anyway and my understanding is it does the same thing, only better than the cheapies. My line was almost as dark today as the other line.

Well, had a definite pos OPK yesterday around 2:00. It was not a "super" pos but it was just a hair darker then the control line. It was neg by 6. Was hoping to have a temp increase today, but of course that didn't happen. I know, I know, could still be too early, its only been 16 hrs since the surge, I could be Oing right now, lol. Patience is a virtue....which I don't have, but I am trying. Hoping for a temp increase tomorrow. If not, I am suppose to get my progesterone checked tomorrow.

Lovely day planned today. Cicely has her flu shot at 9. Hopefully she won't be too crabby for me to run errands after. I'm hoping the elves/brownies come and clean my house. If any of you see them, send them over here...things are getting desperate!

Have a great day

Hehe, ooooh sounds like you should end the day in a sexy way ;) If the elves come to clean I will send them there next.

It seems to be diving at a more appropriate time. Last time this month it was climbing. I am just hoping that Friday morning when I get up 2.5 hours earlier things won't go crazy. I am headed for some crazy hours anyway though. Might have to change my temping time soon, I have an interview Thursday. I bet that by after Thanksgiving I could be starting a new job. Let's just say I have done that very job before and have 2 more years of experience than they are asking for. FX'd for that :) I just hope that getting up an hour earlier won't have a great impact. I would have set the time to temp earlier in the first place to gear up for a possible job but then that would wake DH up earlier than he gets up.

Anyway, praying for a clear O pattern this month.

Mel, I hope you see a temp rise tomorrow. I know what you mean about patience, I haven't learned how to have it and keep it yet! Hope Cicely does good with her shot and you get all your errands done.

Yes, it will probably mean that you lose me during the day. But it also means you get more of me at night and on weekends ;) ha! I need the balance of having to work. As it stands now, I clean, cook, grocery shop and work out and that takes up about 12 hours of my week, the rest of the time I'm obsessing over this stuff.

I guess I can learn to adjust. I just hope the withdrawals aren't too bad on me!:smileyvery-happy: Seriously, I hope you get the job. It will be a good distraction with pay.
