Cycle 6 CD27 1dpo

I’m fairly sure yesterday was ovulation day.  Ov on cd26 isn’t too bad for me, especially as I was worried that I might have another 3 month long cycle.

I got smiley faces on the cb digital opk’s on Thursday and Friday, followed by a temp rise this morning so into the two week wait I go.

Not sure how I’m feeling really.  Technically we’re in with a good shot as, intercourse timing wise, it’s all good (Mon, Wed, Thurs & Fri), coupled with the fact that apparently you’re more fertile straight after a miscarriage means it’s looking good.

I’m scared though.  I want to see another positive pregnancy test desperately but I then want to go to sleep for 8 weeks and wake up to see a healthy baby at the 12 week scan.

I know I need to think positive, I know the chances of another miscarriage are very low but I really don’t want to go through it again or put my lovely husband through it again.

But for now we have to wait and see.

Cycle 5 CD16

I got a positive opk this morning.  A happy smiley cb digital positive opk.

But I can’t get excited as I got 2 of those last cycle and never ov’d.

But, just how awesome would ovulation on cd17 or 18 be?  I haven’t told the husband as last time he had a tiny bit of performance anxiety so I’m just not going there again.

Oh I so want this to be it this time.

Cycle 4 CD30 2dpo (maybe)

FF has finally given me my crosshairs this morning.  I do think they’re a day out and I’m probably only 2dpo but will sort that with tomorrow’s temp.

There’s been some confusion this cycle.  To start with were my opk’s.  I had been testing with the cb digi as part of the cb study every morning then testing with a different box of cb digis every afternoon as well as a cheap opk.

On CD26 I got my smiley on the study opk but the afternoon digi and cheap opk were both negative.  On CD27 the study opk was negative, the other digi was positive and the cheap opk was negative.  Then, on CD28, both digis were negative but I got a positive on the cheap opk.

It’s enough to make your head spin!  So on FF I’ve recorded positives on CD26, 27 and 28.  Just to add to the confusion, I can’t rely on my temps on CD28 or 29 as I had a few drinks at the weekend so think my temps were high because of that.

I think I’m going to decide on CD28 as ovulation day and try to hold out on testing til 28th September (CD41) when I’ll be 12-14dpo.
