I am so confused by my cycle….
I thought I was supposed to ovulate on CD 17, and according to Fertility Friend, I did. But, none of my other fertile signs were in place. No fertile cervical fluid, and my cervix was fairly low.

However, on CD 22 I started to have egg white cervical fluid and my cervix is now high and soft, and my temperature dipped way down this morning. So, I’m guessing that I ovulated a week late for whatever reason.
My cycles can be so screwy….My postpartum cycles have been around 30 days, but every few months I’ll have a cycle that throws all rules out the window. I’m guessing that this cycle is one of those.
January – 29 Days

February – 36 Days

March – 29 Days

April – 39 Days

May – 30 Days

June – 31 Days

July – 30 Days

August/ September – Currently on CD 24 – ovulating today….I think
I’m going back to my midwife on Friday and they’re doing a lot of blood work. They’ll be checking to make sure that I ovulated – and hopefully they’ll be able to tell me when. They’re also going to be checking my thyroid function – T3 and T4 and maybe some others. She didn’t say exactly which ones, just said that she’d be checking all of them.



I wish trying to get pregnant wasn’t so stressful.
Right now I’m on cycle day 17 and I still haven’t ovulated. I’ve been using OPKs for my past two cycles, and I’m fairly certain that I ovulated last month. Last cycle my OPKs got slightly darker each day until at last they were as dark as the control strip – signaling that ovulation was imminent. That hasn’t happened this month. They are staying consistently light. My temperatures are also staying low. I’m starting to worry that I’m not going to ovulate at all this month….

The good news is that I saw my midwife for my annual check up last week and she’s having me come in for blood work next week to make sure that I’m ovulating. She’s also going to be doing testing on my thyroid, because I’m showing symptoms of hypothyroidism.  

I hate the waiting part of all of this. Waiting to ovulate, waiting to take a pregnancy test, waiting for my period to be over so we can start to wait all over again….
