Trying not too loose faith...

Round two of clomid (this time at 100mg) looks like it might be a bust. That, or I will ovulate late again, which isn't what my doctor was hoping for. I was thrilled when I thought I had ovulated on CD16 (no positive OPK, but my temps really did seem to shift appropriately) and I thought I was in the two week wait.

It now appears that maybe the head cold I came down with messed with my temps. One of the guides on Fertility Friend said that the spike in temps could have been from my body fighting off an infection and then the dip in temp (which I at first thought could have been a early implantation dip) could have been a product of me breathing through my mouth too much. She recommended I wait another day or two and see what my temps do. If it stays down below my coverline tomorrow, it will remove the crosshairs. Otherwise, we should BD to make sure our bases are covered.

I'm going to be honest. I am pretty bummed. I have tried to get better about not getting my hopes up, but I really was fooled this cycle. I pray that I at least ovulate late. It's better than not at all. I need to figure out whether or not I am calling my doctor about all of this. I called and spoke with a nurse on Friday (before all of this went down) to see if the new doctor (er, remember my ob moved recently) wanted to do a 21 day progesterone test. Instead of her asking the doc and calling me back, she said to not worry about it this cycle. That the new doc prefers to do a mid-cycle follicule scan instead. Now with my temps all crazy, I'm wondering if they should do a draw to tell us what the heck is going on (if I ovulated or not). The OPK I did today was still negative, but was mid-range dark, so maybe a positive will happen in the next day or two. I think I'll wait another day at least to see what happens before calling her.

Moving on to other things.... this past weekend was "girl's weekend" for Mom and I. It had been awhile since we took time out to do that and it was nice. We were both sick with colds, but still had fun. The big thing is that the cat is now out of the bag. I had been wishing and hoping we would get pregnant in time for Christmas, or anytime in the near future, so that we could really surprise her, and everyone for that matter. But, she asked me directly and I didn't want to lie. Honestly, it was good to be able to share everything with her. Sometimes this stuff feels like a bit too much to bear and it's always nice to have your Mom to share stuff like that with. She was extremely supportive and I am very thankful for that.

Now, if I can just clear my mind and focus on preparing for the holidays - both mentally and physically. I can hardly believe that it's nearly mid-November already and that I haven't purchased a single Christmas gift. That is horrible. I wanted to be done by Thanksgiving. With my Dad returning from Iraq around the 12th of December and us hosting the Payne Family Christmas Bash, there will be so much to think about and do during December that I don't want to still be shopping for presents. Honestly, if it comes down to getting gift certificates for people, then I'm fine with that. I mean, I always find those useful and sometimes I appreciate them more than when I receive something I really don't need or like.
