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!
