So I am sitting at work today - day two of my upset stomach - and completely stressed out. I have two projects going right now. one is under control, but the other one has me climbing the walls. I have not gotten much direction from my bosses and they are nowhere to be found right now so I'm stuck.... uggggg

Anyways, Does anyone know if stress can have a factor on ovulation??? I know that it can have an effect on periods and make them late or a no show, but what about ovulation???

Technically stress does not make your period late. Stress causes you to ovulate later, therefore, making your period late. Does that make since?

When my doctor told me how to chart my temps she said to mark down all sorts of factors that could effect the results. One of the factors was emotional destress. So It def has an effect on it. I think thats a main reason people tend to get pg on there months off, or as soon as they take a break. Because they're not as stressed by it. That's what I think anyways.

Have you been doing anthing to help relax at home?

Oh ok that makes sense. I didn't think of it that way. So I guess that all this stress might be making me o later than normal which might make my cycle longer than 26 days this month.

As far as relaxing, I can easily unwind once I get home. Last night when i came home, dh already had dinner going. I had cleaned out one of the bedroom closets and had 4 boxes that I needed to take up to the attic and he had already done that before I got home. So he has been a big help. That and a nice big glass of wine does the trick at home, then it starts all over again at work. I swear this place is the only thing that keeps me sane durring the day.

Are you feeling any better today???

I'm glad your dh is being helpful. It's always eaier when you don't have to nag to get something accomplished. It's almost like hes listening Shocked

I'm feeling pretty crappy. Just got a lot of crap going on and the hormones aren't helping me deal with it like a big girl. I kinda just want to go in the corner and pout. Embarassed But I know that won't help anything. I'm in a good amount of pain. But I tested yesterday and got a bfn so I'm comfortable taking the darvocet I was prescribed. I'm feeling really crampy too. I don't know what that's about. Rolling Eyes

So how late are you?

Hi Girls
We really need to do something about stress...Star, how about a spa day for you? Mc, I think you should go out and party with the girls. I need to get myself numb enough with oh I don't know...I may use acupunture and give that a go. I am going down fast. I have no symptoms of pregnancey and It is my 6dpiui. All the success stories I read on line have some symptoms by now... Crying or Very sad

Yup yup,

They are very reasonable.... $8 for like 25. I guess it ends up being like $9 or $10 with shipping.

I guess you and I are the only ones on this board today, huh???
Seems kinda quiet in here

Negar if you can come and fill in for me at work, I'm all about sittin at the spa all day!!! lol!!!

Don't give up hope - just because you don't have any noticable symptoms right now that doesn't mean that they could be on their way. Or you could be one of those who do not get any symptoms until after they find out they are pregnant. (That happened to my best friend - she got so tired and sick all the time after she found out.)
