I don’t know

on May 15, 2011

You guys, I just don’t know…  So we insem’d yesterday right? Shorty’s temp spiked, we insemmed, thought it was not-so-great timing but still possible to get us pregnant, and we just kind of left it at that.  We never did use the second vial.

This morning… Shorty’s temp is down again, to where it was before yesterday.  low 97’s.  WTF?!?!?!?!  It’s like the cycle gods are messing with us or something… punishing us for being “cautiously optimistic” about this cycle before we started.  Shorty mentioned her temp might have been high the night before last because she was having bad dreams and tossing and turning all night.  Idk.  We still have no EWCM… all watery bull$hit.  And we still have no positive OPK- we even went out and bought the lined ones to use in conjunction with our smiley ones, and two tests later, nothin’.

I’ve got a wife in tears, and I’m trying to comfort her and tell her we’ll get our Smiley, while meantime I’m wondering what the hell is going on.  We’re on CD16 here folks, with no Smiley.  Shorty is a very regular 27-28 day period kind of gal. And I know it’s possible we’re experiencing delayed ovulation, but it just seems strange because Shorty has been so good about not stressing about it (up until this weekend).  So we didn’t think we’d need to worry about that.

Meanwhile, we also have to decide whether or not to send the Dewar back tomorrow, or pay $15 a day to keep it.  I want to keep it and be hopeful that we’ll get our Smiley.  But something just seems off… the lack of EWCM, the fact that it’s CD16… idk guys.  I just don’t know.  This is really frustrating.

***edited to add that Shorty has been peeing on sticks all day today and call us crazy, but we think the lines are getting darker on the nondigital ones.  We’ll see what tomorrow brings, but for better or worse our hopes are up.

    Ugh. I don’t know, either. Sorry it’s so confusing–I hope it all becomes clear! But I guess I’d send it back and hope that you got it right with the insem you already did.
