So a little off topic. For the first time ever I tried temping this month...then dd started teething...BAD! Well that completely went out the window. Poor baby doesn't sleep so therefore we don't sleep. She still sleeps between us (no judgement please-it's easier for when she wakes up twice a night...and I get separation anxiety lol) and kicks and moves and cries. My poor little baby Dh and I have been completely dead this week, and it's only Tuesday! Oh week please end!
Mod19, that is no fun. And there is no judgement here. At least not in my thread. Teething is hard. I did do the temping thing one month when we were TTC #2, hated it. I had zero patience for charting all of that so I stopped. I am going to buy some ovulation strips from amazon though. I used those consistently with #2 and they were very helpful in determining when ovulation was so we weren't just blindly trying and I actually knew for sure what DPO I was. I did not even check this past month so who knows if I even did ovulate! It will be nice to not be in the dark next month.
I'm using opks as well. But everyone kept pushing the temping on me. The hell with it. Much easier to pee on a stick than worry about how much sleep you get before you take your temp at the same time every morning. I tried. Didn't really want to but figured I'd give it a go. Oh well.
Honestly I found temping to be more stressful than anything and it seriously took any fun left out of TTC. Lol. I think opks are more than enough and temping just really gets your hopes up. So many factors can affect temps in the morning. It's just not worth it for me. I'd love for you to stick around and keep me updated here! AF is definitely here for me. I am not going to complain because that's a fairly normal cycle for me having just stopped the pill! I know some women can wait a whole month or two before getting their regular periods back after stopping birth control!
Well then I'm glad she's here for you! It's always nice to be able to know where you're at and what to expect. And btw, I've also had evaporation lines on those walmart tests. Definitely need to look at them within the 10 minute window! (Says the lady who stares at them for 2 days before throwing them away lol)
I'm on CD13 and the opks aren't even starting to get darker, there's hardly a test line at all! I mean, there's a slight difference from 7 days ago till today, but not by much. We'll see what happens though. Weather I'll O in the next few days, not o at all, or O late like I normally do only time will tell. If I do O on CD18 or later I'm going to use progesterone cream to lengthen my lp. I've used it before and it actually moved it from a 10 day lp to a 14/15 day lp in 2 cycles.
