As far as this month's cycle goes, I'm pretty much clueless.  I know it's Day 27, and I'm pretty sure that I already ovulated, but I admit that I'm pretty clueless as to how long ago that was.  I didn't track my temperature this month because a) I was on vacation and b) I was a bit upset that I didn't get any plummeting numbers to warn me that the new cycle was starting last month.  I brought the thermometer with me all the way to Montana with the intent to track, but quickly realized that with five nieces and nephews in the house that my sleep cycle would be totally thrown off (not to mention that the heating system that my father-in-law has rigged up keeps the house at a toasty 78 degrees).  I first started noticing EWCM on New Year's Eve, and was rather surprised at the punctuality...but then it stuck around for nearly a week, so I'm totally confused.  It's gone now, so I feel like I can say that ovulation occurred sometime in early January...but I don't know exactly when.

For the last few months, my cycles have been anywhere in the 31-35 day range.  If this is the case, I shouldn't be expecting anything quite yet.  I feel like it would be silly to test tomorrow, so my goal is to try to hold out until at least next Friday, and then decide from there.  At least when I track my temperature, I can focus in on the start-point and end-point of the 2WW.  But I'd hate to "waste" a test.  At least things are busy at work, which can keep me occupied.

My most recent blessing is the chance to spend ample quality time with my husband as we enjoy our new Bluray player.  He's such a techie, and it's so cute to watch him get excited about his new toys.  But I've especially loved catching up on LOST, just snuggled up with him on the couch.  No, we haven't exactly been too productive around the house, but we both totally get engrossed in the show.  And we first started dating around the time that the show came out, so it's kind of fun to re-watch the episodes and think about just how far both our relationship and the plot have evolved.  (And by the way, I'm feeling much better--taking the day off on Monday seemed to do the trick for my cold...thank you for the well wishes.)

  1. I hear you on snuggling on the couch watching t.v. It seems so unproductive, but it is good for the stress! We put on candles, drink warm coffee (decaff for me!), wrap the dogs and ourselves under blankets and sit there for hours. Not cool all the time, but every once in awhile YOU DESERVE IT!


I love to hear what you think!
