Ugh. This build-up to ovulation thing is exhausting. (So much for Thankful Thursday.)
I haven’t got much to say, because there’s only one thing on my mind: ovulation.
It’s CD 22. One day past three weeks from my last period. Last cycle, on CD 22, I got my first smiley face. On CD 23 the same happened, and on CD 24, I ovulated. This cycle, the last week or so has been exactly like last cycle. My temps have been exactly the same, to the day, that they were last cycle, including this morning. However, there are a few things that haven’t happened yet:
I did not get a smiley face today, and I was really hoping for one. I have not had cramps on one side of me, like I did last time, to let me know that it was my left side releasing the egg. Nothing. My CM is not quite egg-white (sorry, TMI), and I was expecting it to be.
What the heck??
I’m not worrying about it too much, as I’m still banking on it happening in two days. I’ve been planning as such, and DH and I are in the middle of a marathon, gearing up for the home stretch. I’m making sure to cover all my timing bases, so to speak, and leaving no days around O time unturned! But if O doesn’t happen when I thought it would (ie, Saturday), I don’t know how much longer we will be able to continue without a break!
I actually look forward to the TWW, when I can say I did all I could, and got my timing down wonderfully. If those two things happen, I will be content for the next two weeks. And of course, trying to keep up the optimism, I’m still attempting the thought: “This will happen for me this cycle. Clomid is going to work.” I sure hope so. But where is my egg???
Come on, egg, let’s get this thing started.
