Still Waiting...

I just thought I would update you all real quick as to where I am in my cycle in case anyone was curious.

Today is CD 22, and I have not had a positive OPK yet. My temps were holding steady at 97.18 for about a week and then dropped to 96.63 this morning. I had copious amounts of beautiful EWCM for a couple days and now nothing. I can honestly say I have no clue what my body is doing. 

Am I Disappointed? Yes.

Am I Surprised? No.

I started out this cycle feeling confident that I would get a positive OPK around CD 16-19. I started testing on CD 7, because I'm, well, strange. I did have ovary pains from CD 14-17 and thought for sure I was going to ovulate. Those days and thoughts have come and gone. I know that in the past I have ovulated as late as CD 43 according to my P4 but I am not going to keep taking OPKs until then; it is too expensive, however, I will keep charting. 

Since we are suppose to be on a "break" I don't want to stress myself out too  much but that is what I am doing. We were hoping we could catch a surge and time intercourse appropriately but it is proving to be difficult. A close friend mentioned that maybe I need to break from the pee sticks and some time to just be. She is right. I am breaking up with the OPKs for the time being. It's over.

That is all I have for now. 

Hope everyone is doing well! 

Hugs!

  1. I know it is totally stressful trying to figure this stuff out. I also know that sometimes taking a break is SO much easier said over being done. I hope whatever happens that you can enjoy time with your husband on your upcoming awesome vacation!!!

  2. Ugh, so sorry. Those pesky surges. I know the feeling of needing a break from the constant monitoring. Hope you can find some peace with a break and relax. (I know that's never easy).

    Best wishes!

  3. I broke up with mine as well. I'm really trying to just live but it just seems like it's always there in the back of your mind no matter what.

    1. Oh I have thought about buying more OPKs but haven't (yet). I am trying to trust my BBT which is stupid, because it is all over the place!

  6. I have mentioned it before, but I will say again, please please please consider getting a digital OPK.. It takes the guesswork out of the equation! I hope this break is just what you need, so you can come back refreshed and ready to go! HUGS!!

  7. Frustrating! My temp always dropped right before O, though, so it may be on its way. Still hoping for the best for you... with or without OPKs...

    1. My temps make no sense this time around- they normally are confusing without meds... who knows, I will keep temping because I have ovulated on CD 43 before...

  10. That is so frustrating! Super long cycles where you don't know what's going on are the worst. I hope you can enjoy the break and the not knowing doesn't grate your nerves like it does mine.

  11. We are starting a long break and I am trying decide if I want to keep away from OPK's. With all of the meds they have been putting into me, my last two cycle's have been short, so I don't even know when to start OPK's. My last cycle before starting on Clomid and Ovidrel....I ovulated on CD 28 and got my period on CD40. Last month when we tried on our own, I missed ovulation because I started testing on CD13 and got my period on CD24. It is extremely frustrating. :/ I hope you get a positive OPK soon!

    1. Ya, I think cycles after meds kinda throw things into wack mode. That is my problem; along with PCOS.

  12. So how's that break from the pee sticks going? Have you held true to that break? I think you should definitely leave them behind when you go on vacation. No stress sex and relaxation is called for!
