This is not the first time I am waking up on Mars. This morning’s temperature went DOWN as opposed to the UP we needed to confirm ovulation. Normally I would be panicked and on hold for an hour with my OB/GYN. Fortunately, I have The One who pays attention to this stuff. Monday I got the positive OPK, so I happily advised him that we would be ovulating. (It technically could happen between day 14 which was Monday, and 16 which is today). He said no, I thought it was Wednesday? I had originally thought the same, since that is what our chart was predicting. But I have gone as far as day 20 and as early as day 13 so I assumed that it was Monday. I usually ovulate the same day as the OPK. I guess from here on out I will be paying attention to him along with the chart!
The temp today was low enough that when I inserted temps for the days up to Saturday, I got crosshairs (solid, not dotted) for today. This is ok for us too because our intercourse analyzer gives us a high score. It is our second round of Clomid, so I am really hoping this is it. I hate this medication! Last night when The One got home I was going through the heat flushes. I would get soaking wet, then turn white as a ghost! We ran to the drug store and I had the windows wide open as he froze. I had to come home, shower in ice cold water and open the windows and remove every single article of clothing….and I still was miserable.
Again, I just have to keep thinking this is all worth it. And someday I know that I wont even remember these days. 🙂
