Well, of course, today, my temp drops down! It's still above average, but it's a sharp drop from yesterday. We did get a cold snap today and I did wake up chilled, so that might be a contributing factor, and I still haven't had any spotting but...I'm back to thinking quite solidly that this will not be the month. I'm definitely not going to test before testing day, and I might wait two days after that, just to account for the possibly of ovulating later. Just going to keep on truckin' (expect to see that a lot - I'm finding that to be a useful mantra.)
I'm either going to work more in the basement (if it's not too cold down there with the cold snap) or the dining room, today. Maybe a little in both.
PS...I just noticed that my ticker says I can schedule my gyno appointment now. Does anyone have any advise on whether I should wait and schedule a May appointment, instead, since that will be my 9th cycle and that's when the doc wanted to refer me for fertility testing, and it's only one month away from the April appointment?
I don't know smalltowngal, I think the rules are difference in the UK and US. does it make a financial difference to go to the docs twice? if not I'd go in april just in case the doc would send you sooner rather than later.
saying that your temps don't look bad esp if it was cold. then again if you ovulated at 2dpo instead where there is a second dip, it's probs too early to test.
Hm...the payment isn't much for a visit...I'll think I'll probably go ahead and schedule the April appointment (after the witch shows...or earlier if I should happen to get a no-show witch and bfp), hoping that he'll refer me just that little bit sooner, then.
And it was quite a cold snap today (the toilet seat was even quite chilly this morning! ). It's hopeful to hear the temps don't look bad, esp considering the cold. Ah, it'll be interesting to see what happens tomorrow. If it's really 12dpo then I could maybe see spotting, if AF is going to show. It will be very unusual if I don't see spotting on 13dpo (unless I O'd on 2dpo). We shall see, we shall see.
In other news: Got some good basement organizing done. The super warm slipper socks and fleece outfit I was wearing kept me warm enough to work down there.
On the other hand, poor DH is having a tough workday. I'll be getting us delicious Chinese food from down the road, to cheer him up (he loves the General Tsao's Chicken).
Temp went back up a bit today , so now I'm hopeful again. It's no wonder I dreamed of being on funky amusement park rides, last night. So far still no spotting. Getting anxious to see what happens tomorrow (if I spot or not).
Well, the temp has gone all the way back up , and still no spotting (so far), so it's hard not to be hopeful and I am in a way but...I find that I still can't envision getting a bfp this month. Partly, perhaps, because I'm still in doubt over when I O'd, but also I think because I've hoped and envisioned 4 other times only to be disappointed. However, even if I did O one or two days later, these temps are still awful high and sustained. So it's a bit suspenseful. Oh well.
Definitely going to be keeping my mind off things by continuing to work on my nesting. I made some great progress in the basement yesterday. And DH and I are also planning on going out today, so that should be nice.
Hope Tizy and BB and others we haven't heard from for a little bit are doing all right.
Baby1wanted, have a good doctor's appointment tomorrow!
Lizzie, I've just lurked your journal, and it's got me thinking that if I'm not PG I can always console myself with more time to save for all that expensive baby stuff, LOL.
epp! mustn't get excited but look at your temps and no spotting
but you are right, saving for a baby isn't a bad plan either I am totally gobsmacked at the cost of everything I need to find a good second hand baby things website, anyone got any tips?
good luck with the doc baby1wanted!
hope everyone is having a great weekend we are under quite a lot of snow here! lovely for five minutes, a complete pain thereafter!
