K is laying down watching the Superbowl. I’ve tried to get interested in football, but I can’t. It’s against my nature. I just don’t understand why guys just want to run into each other. Plus, all that starting and stopping of the game, drives me crazy. So, with a few minutes on the computer, I thought I’d write. I haven’t blogged in a few days. It was too depressing really. My body, as I had thought, ovulated EARLY. Since I normally ovulate CD18 or CD20, I was only using one OPK per day on CD12-15. Not smart on my part. I did the usual POAS early in the morning on CD15, saw a faint line, and discarded it as NEGATIVE. I didn’t use an OPK for the rest of the day. The following morning, I did the same thing and saw NO LINE this time. Hmm. I didn’t even think at the time that I may have missed the surge and should do an insem ASAP… no, I just kept thinking that I would get a dark OPK test line around CD 18, or closer to it. I mean this was way early for me. I kept waiting, and that dark line never came. Fertility Friend confirmed my ovulation on CD15. It’s so frustrating. Of course my body had to throw a curve ball at me this cycle, when we were so ready to try again. So, now we really have nothing to do but wait. I’m 8DPO today. At least I don’t have my mind telling me that these “symptoms” mean I’m pregnant. Funny how I just shrug off the weird things that go on with my body when I’m not in the TWW like they’re nothing at all. My brother (who has no idea that we are TTC) just emailed me and told me that he and my sister-in-law are pregnant and due in September. I’m truly happy for them (no sarcasm here at all, for real), it’s just typical that life would throw that at me on the day I find out we just missed our chance!! I think God has a sense of humour. Ahh, this TTC timing though…! It’s enough to make you crazy. Alas, we are getting through it and waiting waiting waiting for the next cycle. We are just so ready. Sometimes it’s hard to be patient. I am out of the city for this week, house-sitting at a friends place with our 3 beagles and watching their 2 big doggies. It’s a nice distraction right now. Just what I needed to take my mind off the TTC stress. We haven’t put a contract on the house yet. We’re not sure what we’re going to do. We found another house that may work out better, so for now, we’re holding off until we feel 100% about what we’re doing. Hoping you all had a great weekend, football or no football, and are having lots of luck in the TTC dept.
