And yes, if you are ovulating, you only ovulate once a cycle. Your body can gear up to ovulate, fail, then try again. But as a general rule, only one egg per cycle. I definitely would start charting; you learn SO much about your body. Your period should eventually arrive, but may be a while. I assume you've done a HPT?
Hey lovely ladies!
Sorry I haven't been keeping up much, this flu (and yes, the doc FINALLY decided it's actually the flu) has knocked me around something fierce. DS has had a chest infection and an ear infection that won't go away, I'm on antibiotics to deal with an ear infection and even though my ear unblocked for a day or two it's gone back to being blocked, and DH is starting to get sick now too.
Phwar, it's been a rough week! I've gone through three boxes of tissues in the last 3 days!
I'm hoping to be well enough to go back to work on Monday, because whether I feel better or not I pretty much have to. DS will have to go back to kindy too, as DH and I can't stay home with him. I'm hoping and praying. He seems better now, has a bit of a cough and still a clear runny nose but that's about it. I've been told he should be over the contagious stage by now.
Sorry for the BFNs that have happened, and fingers crossed for those that are still waiting to test! I hope everyone's doing better than me health-wise *chuckle*.
Button, I'm going to try and wait until Sunday and just see if AF arrives. But I received a sample IC from oracle in the mail today, so I may use that tomorrow.
Well done on being happy for your best friend. I hope you can both be pregnant together
Thanks J - it is exactly what I thought.. yay but
I have done many HPT's. In January when I missed a period and still BC I did about 27 in 1 week! OMG I know! It was my DH was still working in WA and we were not trying at all - so was freaking out! But silver lining, made DH realise he was ready and came home!
I have only done 3 HPT's in the past 1.5 week...saving the heartache with no double lines. My boss told me today that she is 16 weeks...2nd close friend this week announcing...I cried with joy, but a pang of sadness - DH said it is our turn next. But that just upset me because I just don't know when we can try again! My mum and female cousins all fall quickly and I am starting to feel like a bit of a failure...reason we waited so long is because we thought I would be same. BUT then I have to remember that we have only been trying a few months...not years...so need to get over myself...
Thank you so much J xx
Af arrived today so my ff worked out my new o dates and fx DH will be around for September!!!!
Bummer AF arrived Shelby, fingers crossed hubby is around at the right time in Sept!
I have a question for J (or anyone else who can answer it!), Had more bloods this morning. The nurse said this afternoon that it looks like I have ovulated (well they are assuming I have) but some of my levels arent great. They said my estrogen level hasnt changed and they couldnt detect a LH surge, but progesterone is rising so they are presuming I ovulated and they missed it???!!! Does that sound right??
They need to do regular tests over the next week or so to watch whats going on. Have to go for BTs every 3 days now, so next test is Monday...
Im not sure how many dpo.. When I had the test mon they said I hadn't o'd yet so had to have been some time tues,wed or thurs?
