It’s been so long since I’ve had anything remotely close to ovulation that I can’t tell if this is me being lame, or if they may be symptoms that Clomid is actually working:
1. Tired. Like, can’t keep my eyes open after lunch. I feel foggy right now, and I’m not sure why.
2. Headache: A dull fog-like headache that has come in the afternoon the last couple of days.
3. Slight weird crampy pinchie feeling on my left ovary side.
4. Still low morning temps, but steadily creeping upward. I was at 97.64 this morning and I have never. Repeat. Never. had temps that high in the morning except for the months that I’ve eventually ovulated. My post ovulation temps are usually around 97.9 and 98.2.
Other than that, nothing. No EWCM, not even watery CM. I used my ovulation microscope/spit slides today, and I’m still not “ferning”. I was “transitioning” according to the slide–which, for the record, has been exactly the same as every other month I never ovulated. So, no ovulation yet. Hubs and I got in a good ole romp in the hay last night, and will most likely continue the trend every day or every other day for the next week or so to see if we can catch an egg. I have to say that sex last night felt…different. Better. I was more turned on from sex than I’ve been in a long time. When I used to ovulate somewhat consistently, sex often felt that good….sigh. Those were the days.
Tomorrow, the gyno looks at my lady bits and I get to see if this Clomid stuff really works. It will be CD12, which feels a bit early in the cycle for me, but who knows. Maybe we’ll see something a-brewing. My results are in from the glucose tolerance test, but the doc has not called me with them yet. Impatience!
QUESTION: Regarding sex and keeping my husband’s swimmers in my barely functioning vag (every spermie counts!), I’ve heard everything from “legs up in the air” to “roll on your side”, to “hips propped up on two pillows”. Ultimately, I’ve been doing a bit of the legs over my head, butt up on two pillows thing (yes, I look ridiculous), but inevitably, I still leak, and I feel intense waves of remorse as what could be our potential child ends up running down my leg (probably trying to escape…). Also, in terms of positions, Hubs and I are huge fans of missionary–I’m hoping that this is agreeable to conception. Anyone have any tips on how to keep Hub’s DNA locked and loaded in my lady parts? How long do I have to stay laying down? Anyone who is pregnant or has been pregnant know what worked best for them? Also, because I have vag problems, I’m also highly prone to UTIs. How does one reconcile peeing right after sex with keeping Hub’s boys and girls from getting pissed out?
Oh, the body fluid questions never end.
