June 17th, 2011.  CD16, 3DPO…?

So yesterday at this time, I was settling in to the thought that I had about a week’s wait before ovulation.

Today, apparently, I am firmly in the Two Week Wait.

Crazy, right?  I know!

I went to my chart on Fertility Friend and checked out when I had my temp rise, which lined up exactly with the time frame the ultrasound tech told me she thought I had ovulated–two to three days ago.  So, I did what any obsessive TTC-er would do; I manually overrode the system and placed my ovulation date.

I feel like such a cheater!  And a slouch!  Not only did I not know I ovulated, even if I had been using OPK’s to test, I probably wouldn’t have started using them until after the day I actually ovulated anyway!  And forget about Sexy Timing!  We probably would have started yesterday, had I not received the unexpected news about my premature ovulation. Thankfully, there was one little “encounter” a few days ago that made it onto the chart before the egg-drop, or I would have to chalk this month up to a total waste before it even got off the ground.

What is my body trying to do to me??

Dr. Fran also mentioned yesterday that although my ultrasound didn’t show any evidence of it, she thinks there is a small chance that I might have mild PCOS.  After reviewing the CD3 labs sent over by Dr. Awesome’s office, she said it looked like my testosterone level is just a tiny bit higher than normal, and it might have something to do with the other fertility issues I’ve been having.  She said not to worry, and that it doesn’t concern her too much, but it’s something we want to keep an eye on for now.


Is nothing as it seems?  Do I need to go back to the days where I use OPK’s every day of the month I’m not bleeding?  Should I give up temping altogether because I feel like half the time, it’s the BBT that cried wolf?  Will Aunt Flo be in town next week at this time, rather than the Fourth of July weekend as expected?

Should I just stop being so dramatic and deal with it already?

Yeah.  That’s what I figured.

Time to spend the next week assuming I’m pregnant and obsessing over every little gas bubble and fried food craving.

Hooray for the Two Week Wait!  (Sarcasm implied.)

    Hi Tracy – I had to give up on BBT a while ago- it was too obsessive for me. Even though it is expensive, Clear Blue Fertility Monitor is the way to go, But it seems like that you are going to start Femara next month and ovidrel will trigger ovulation, so you will not have to worry about if you ovulated or not.
    It is really frustrating to have to be so anal about your cycle. I miss those days of not having a clue as to where I was in my cycle. I have 1 more week in my 2 week wait, so I am right there with you!

    I heard that some women have PCOS and don’t have the actual cysts…

    Anyway – I hope a blastocyst is already making its way through your tube “)

    Damn the unexpected! Don’t our bodies know by now that they aren’t supposed to be so unpredictable? Oh yeah NO!
    Glad you got a bd in at the right time. GL this cycle!

    Happy ICLW! I still chart on BBT even though I do injections and triggers, but it has helped me to find out that my LP is a little short. Hope you caught the eggie! Good luck!
