More Plans

Did I mention that I hate this whole business of trying to conceive? I had a higher temp today and, if I discard my low one yesterday, FF says I ovulated the day before my peak OPK. I wouldn't even worry about it too much except that the fertility doc thinks my problem was progesterone more so than the septum, so I know I should go ahead and start the progesterone just in case. But my gut feeling is that I really didn't ovulate and I really don't want to take the progesterone and prolong a cycle that's already probably going to be pretty long. Damn I hate trying to make these decisions. I've pretty much decided that, unless my temps do spectacular things in the the next few days, I'm just going to ride this cycle out. And I've also decided to call the specialist next week and plead annovulatory cycles and get on Clomid to try and speed things up. I always had long cycles before I went on the pill and I fear my body is going back to that. At least Clomid would hopefully make me ovulate sooner. So, as always, I'm equipped with A Plan to make myself feel like I'm doing something productive while my body decides to do whatever it's going to do.

My RE thinks temping is just another way to drive oneself crazy. And, you know, I think he's right. The OPKs aren't infallible, but they've made my life a lot easier than worrying whether I've slept with my mouth open, how much I've drunk the night before or what time I might wake up.

That said, start the progesterone! And we hope for the best... you've done everything you could.

ps Remind me of this when I'm freaking out in a few months.
