CD11, No CD13 - No, wait! CD11...

Update: Holy crap, this is my 100th post! ::throws confetti in the air:: Yay! 100 posts of some whiny infertile bitch complaining about her petty first world problems!! LOL

My temperature pattern is sending poor FF into fits. Today it changed my ovulation date for the 3rd time! Initially it had told me CD11 (and with solid cross-hairs no less - a luxury I rarely get!). After entering a few more temps, it switched to CD13. It stuck with that idea for about a week and then this morning? CD11 again. I'm not quite sure why it can't seem to make up its mind. I don't know if it was the big dip and slow rise I experienced in my temps over the past few days, or maybe the spotting. Who knows. All I know is, I am expecting this to be the shortest cycle EVAR! Like, not even 30 days. Its pretty crazy-pants.

Some of you had mentioned that clomid can help with luteal phase spotting and I hope that's the case for me. Aside from being a very early sign that a cycle most likely did not work, its just really obnoxious to deal with. M would be very happy if there was no more luteal phase spotting as I am disinclined to acquiesce to sexy-time when I feel gross.

Speaking of M, he continues to receive bad news followed by good news. Well, this time the bad news was entirely his fault: he did not turn in his timecard on time and therefore we get to wait until the *next* payday to get his check. Great. Dumbass. We needed that money. But we will just borrow from our savings account (again) and pay it back when we get 2 paychecks in one. The good news is that he has another interview! With a big company that has very important defense contracts! And which accidentally exploded a while ago!.... okay, that last part is not very good news. Apparently, the facility he is interviewing to work at is designed specifically for explosives. I don't even want to know what kind of government research is going on there. A job is a job at this point.

So that's what's going on with me. Big Brother starts Thursday ::bites fist in anticipation:: so that should be sufficient to distract me until AF arrives and I can call Dr. B's office. And get back on the clomid train to crazy-town!


  1. Boo, bad husband about the timecard! But good about the interview!

    Yeah, LP spotting is the pits. I spot for several days before my period.

  2. Hi, just started following your blog not too long ago. I started charting BBT about two months ago. But, my cycles are whacked so after CD 50 I got sick of doing it since clearly it wasn't tracking much of anything. Now I'm on CD1 again so I guess I'll start again and see what happens. Figuring out when I ovulate is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. I've never watched Big Brother so I may have to check that out!

  3. Congratulations on the successful evacuation of an egg from a follicle. CD 11 or CD 13. Who cares?! You are going to have a cycle that is 28 days or less. Now that is amazing. Absolutely amazing. Bring on the Clomid!

  4. Happy 100th post!

    Fertility friend and I often disagree. The important this is that you did in fact ovulate. Here is to a successful 2nd round of Clomid and another 100 posts (although I hope for you that they are of a different nature ;) )

  5. Congrats on your 100th post. Although, you are far from a whiny, infertile bitch. Or at least no more than the rest of us ;) I too second what Trisha said- at this point just the factyou ovulated is a huge step in the right direction. Pinpointing the exact day can be dealt with later.

  6. Yay for 100 posts! I LOVE a whiny infertile bitch! (I'm one, too).

    And hooray for exploding government jobs!
