CD1 of C9

AF is here. Thus begins cycle number nine.

As of right now it's looking like my husband should be here for this cycle. But with the military anything is possible. That means that this may change from an actual ttc cycle to a hiatus one at any moment.

CD14 of September Hiatus

I got my positive OPK today. I've been having tons and tons of EWCM the last 3 days. So I knew my positive would be coming soon. Of course my husband is on orders and out of state currently. So there's no chance, whatsoever, of catching this little eggy.

DH left while I was still on AF and won't return until just a few days before AF is due again. I'm discouraged, but knew he was going to be gone during ovulation. But even though I knew it's still frustrating.

We might have a chance next month to try and catch the egg but we'll have to see. A lot of things are still up in the air.

CD1 of September Hiatus

We will be on a hiatus due to my husband's absence. He will be gone on orders most of September. If something changes and we have a chance to catch the egg I will change the status.

I will continue to temp and use OPKs on the off chance that we will be together during ovulation.

CD28 of C8 (13DPO)

I'm so frustrated.

This week I broke down and bought FRERs (first response early result). They are like the Cadillacs of HPTs. I began getting faint but definitely "there" pink lines. I thought awesome, we have the start of something.

This morning I had a huge temp drop, began having regular, strong AF cramps and began spotting. AF is starting. I am defeated yet again.

On that note we will be on a hiatus during September because my husband will be out of town on orders until the very end of the month. I haven't decided if I will keep temping and/or using OPKs during September. I know they aren't neccessary since my DH will be gone, but I will be able to keep track of ovulation and possibly track a pattern.

I will also be trying to get into the GYNO and make sure he feels everything is still in working order.
