Day 22

Filed under: Fertility,Weird — Theresa @ 2:08 pm

temperaturesSo my chart, started on day 9 (see last post) looks like this. I find this encouraging so far. I mean that upswing, that means something good. Of course, we still have the muskelknuter – being, as far as I can tell, fibroids – hurdle to get over, but hey. Optimism.

That last low temperature day was day 18. This may explain some things. Like why doing it on days 8-14 hasn’t quite been doing the trick.

I see my doctor tomorrow morning. I have no idea what his plan is. I hope to convey the proper amount of craziness so that he takes me seriously, without that oh-so-familiar segue into hypochondriasis. I’m considering taking up biting my nails. Or perhaps wringing my hands. Maybe having my sweater on backwards.

Oh, and this Thursday would have been the baby’s 12th birthday had he lived. I find that hard to wrap my head around. I have some things to say about that – what it meant then and what it means now – but don’t know how to start.

Of course they’ve scheduled a meeting at work for that afternoon. Heads may roll. I have no patience and very little respect for the New Boss. She apparently feels an irresistable need to tell me every little thing that goes through her head. Insecurity, I think. Plus she nods and smiles 85% of the time – even when family members are complaining. I mean, honestly. Get a brain.



  1. What a lovely temp rise. I hope that timing has been your only problem. I know that having to try for so long can make having sex a chore so now maybe you can anjoy some juicy ovulation sex a little later in the month and don’t let that fibroid trouble you. Good luck at the staff meeting and with your doctor.

    I will be thinking extra warm thoughts for you on Thursday.

  2. I’ll be thinking of you this week. I hope the doctor’s appointment went okay.
