If I were "textbook", I'd be ovulating today. I don't think I've ever been "textbook" at anything! FF says I've entered my fertile period and calucates (from 11 cycles) my average ovulation date as CD17. I'm still awaiting today's OPK result. I think I drank too much this afternoon to get a good reading. Tomorrow I'll be taking off for Ashville, NC to ensure an uninterrupted flow of sperm to the uterus. Because, of course, when you're this close to ovulation, it's hard to think of it as "just sex". I hate, hate, hate being on this roller coaster of trying. But I want, want, want another baby. Hard to reconcile the two. The good news is that the specialist called yesterday (okay, technically his nurse) and said that all my bloodwork came back absolutely perfect. A little while later, my SIL (I had the bloodwork done at her office so they could send it off to my insurance lab) left a message to the same effect. She said, going by my bloodwork at any rate, "you look absolutely perfect". I'll try to remember that the next time I'm having self image problems.
