This Is Really Strange...... (Page 1)

Ok, so I am going on my second cycle of temping and so far it has been quite educational. It's really fun to learn more about my body. It's something that you just can't read online about, or ask questions about...it's your body so no one else will have exactly the same experience as you.

So in my second month ff predicted that I would ovulate on Saturday. Last cycle, I had a 12 day luteal phase so I'm guessing that is how it predicted it. Well it's monday and I still have not had a temp increase. It went way up on Thursday, but I had gone out to dinner with friends and had a few beers, so I'm guessing that's why. Then it went way down and then back up and now is slowly going back down. The temps were 98.18, 97.27, 97.93, 97.76, 97.51 So I am guessing that I just didn't ovulate this month??? Or maybe I will have a really short luteal phase, and I just haven't o'ed yet???

I am also guessing that if I ovulate next month and then don't ovulate the following month, that is a good indicator that one of my overies might have a blockage or something?

Who knows...aside from that, I am feeling so sick to my stomach today it is driving me crazy. I took vitamins this morning and I thought I was sick from that, so I ate some oatmeal...didn't help. Then I had a snack...didn't help. Now I just finished my lunch, and I am still sick. I don't necessarily feel like I am going to throw up, just an annoying feeling. Two people at work today heard me say I felt sick and they immediately said...are you pregnant??? Ummmm.... NO!!!

Have you brought your chart to your doctor and had them take a look at it?

Speaking of temps. I started temping on friday. (I know not long enought to tell anything) But is it normal for your temps to be the same everyday.

They have been 97.70, 97.70, and 97.70 ( I didn't temp this morning beccause my bladder wasn't going to make it Embarassed )

I have not taken my chart in for two reasons... 1. I completely forgot to even think of bringing it in the last two times I had my treatment. 2. Now that I think about it, I think I am going to talk to a different doctor when i am done with my treatment. I have a pap in July so if it is all good, we will start trying again. If we are not successful, then I think I am going to try to change doctors. I just really don't get a good vibe from this doctor, even though she is good at her job, she just has no personality, and I think it is important to be able to be comfortable with your doctor, and I don't.

I don't know about the temps staying the same day after day b/c it hasn't happened to me yet.

I tried something last week. If anyone doesn't think this is a good idea let me know!!! I decided that I would take my temp before I got out of bed and then I got up went straight to the bathroom (about 10 steps away) and took my temp again to see if there was a difference. There was less than 5/100 of a degree difference. So I thought that if I have those mornings that I can't wait to pee, then it would be ok to temp while doing so!!! Embarassed

Let me know what everyone thinks about that.

That is why I changed my last doctor. He is supposed to be the best in his field. But he had no bed side manner at all. Could care less about my day or any problems I was having. And made me feel stupid to ask any question.

That just wasn't working. While my current doc might not be best in her field she is still a great doctor and I could actually see talking to her if I ran into her out side of work. Which is important to me.

But I think it would be a good idea to bring you charts in and have her take a look at your charts just to see what she thinks. It couldn't hurt.

I could only wish that was the case. I had a semi regular period last month...started on my anniversary of course. Semi regular because it didn't last nearly as long as recent af's. I hardly had any cramps either which is really strange for me since I have them so bad sometimes.
Also we have been using condoms, so uless one of those little spermies slipped through, I doubt I'm pregnant. Crying or Very sad

Sorry to bring it up. It just seems like some things could point that direction and I just wanted to throw it out there. (I think its the emotional that I was thinking of) Have you talked to your dh about how your feeling?

Thats ok, I was actually having the same wishful thinking yesterday when people at work asked if I was pregnant.

I have talked to dh about it, but it's not all that bad right now. I just go in phases of being upset. Last week was the worst - two tickets in two days!!! Then my mom was put in the hospital on Friday and has to stay until Wednesday. It is getting better though!

I don't know if I am alone here or not, but sometimes dh has absolutely no idea on how to console me or understand why I am upset. He gets frustrated when I start crying out of nowhere, and I think it's because he doesn't know how to "fix it".

Ditto!! Sometimes my dh just doesnt have a clue. He doesn't understand why I get so upset and hea has not clue how to make it better, so he pretty much tries to avoid the intire situation at all just to not upset me. Men.

I hope your mom is doing better!

Star - What are your cycles normally like? Are they regular? I looked at your chart and your temps seem quite eratic. Are you on any meds right now?

Lately I have been having 26 day cycles. This is only the second month that I have been temping so I don't know why they would be so eratic. Last month it seemed like it was normal. I had a definite ovulation point and a 12 day luteal phase. I have had quite a bit of stress the past 1 1/2 weeks and I have had trouble sleeping. The only medicine I have taken isn't really medicine. I have been taking a melatonin which is a natural sleep aid. Other than that, just my prenatals.

I don't know if it is the stress that is making my ovulation late or if I am not ovulating at all.

Insomnia should be noted on your charts when you take them in for your doctor to look at. If will def cause them to be irratic. In the example one I was given it was the only note made on the chart. So Its common.

I would bet that stress and not sleeping well are probably to blame for your temps and lack of ovulation. Do you drink alcohol? I know that can also effect temps. I hope things calm down for you some so you can destress a bit.

I do drink, but on very rare occasions. Last wednesday night I did and I think that's why it went up so high. But other than that, I have had nothing more than a few glasses of wine since then. Like maybe 3.

abbysmom - how long have you been ttc #2? How long have you been temping? The reason I ask is because I was wondering if you were able to tell a difference in your temping cycles based on what side you ovulate from? Just curious

We have been ttc #2 for 17 months now. I started charting either the second or third month. I honestly have only "felt" ovulation on a certain side for these two cycles that I have done clomid so I haven't really noticed anything in my charts. My first charts were very eratic but mine is from having PCOS. They have leveled out some since I started taking Metformin.

I don't drink that often either but when I do I sure notice a difference on my chart.
