November 7-20, 2005

November 7, 2005

I’ve been charting my Basal Body Temperature, but they say by the time you see it spike the actual ovulation has already taken place. This month will probably be a test run so we can see how my body will do without the pill and when I will ovulate. According to the 28 day cycle that I have been on for the last 10 or so years (wow, it’s been that long?!) I will be ovulating somewhere between November 14 and November 16. I read somewhere not to say the word ovulating to your partner, but I just couldn’t help it! I want him to know what I know so we don’t miss our window of opportunity!

I just realized I am going to be alone SO MUCH this month! Josh was gone last weekend and this weekend we have to go to WI for a wedding and so he can put up his deer stand. Damn deer hunting…he’ll be gone November 18-27! Luckily we knew this when I went off the pill and it doesn’t interfere with my ovulation schedule. That is, if my body decides to even ovulate. We’ll see.

I read somewhere that the sperm can live for 24-72 hours…is this too much information? Sorry, it’s important to timing with ovulation! :-) On the other hand, doing it more isn’t necessarily better because the sperm count goes down if they don’t have enough recuperation time between! So what are we to do?! “O” day is nearing so we decided to just go with it. We do it when we want and if it happens, it happens. We still have to keep in mind that I may not even ovulate whether we plan it or not!

I swear we’ve morphed into a rabbits…cuz we’ve been acting like a couple of them! :-) The ovulation (which I think will happen today) has been in the back of our minds. We’re both so ready to be parents that we want it really bad, which apparently makes us want each other really bad! :-)

My temp spiked today, which means that I ovulated…I THINK!

November 20, 2005

My temp has stayed the same since it spiked on Thursday. That could mean that I’m pregnant! And it could mean nothing! :-) I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's hard not to. I am convinced that I didn't ovulate because I didn't notice any of the other signs of ovulation. I’m supposed to get my period on the 30th, so until then…we wait.

I can’t wait until this week is over, even though I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. That’s when I’ll see Josh again and I miss him so much!!! I just know he’s sitting in his deer stand wondering if this will be his last deer season without having to leave kids behind.
