I’m having the most bizarre fertility cycle and I have a feeling it does not bode well for a positive result. Firstly, my temping chart is in a mess, my temps are so bizarre this cycle that I had to manually insert my estimated ovulation day (estimated as 36 hours after my trigger injection) because Fertility Friend has been unable to pick up ovulation.  This despite the fact that for the FIRST TIME ever, I had a positive OPK on Sunday and that I had two scans prior to the trigger injection that confirmed that ovulation would occur late on Sunday evening. My first scan on Friday revealed a 16mm follicle and on Saturday morning, the follicle had grown to 18.5mm. In addition, I’ve had a cold on and off since last Friday which I have a feeling as wrecked havoc with my temps. Especially the last two days where I’ve had a sharp, totally unexplained temperature peak. I also had two dots of bleeding, which normally would have made me excited, thinking implantation, except that it was 3DPO which is like waaaaaayyyy too early.  I think its the Femara which has also caused my ovaries to ache on and off since ovulation and I may have a slight urinary tract infection because I’m having to get up and go to the toilet a lot during the night and afterwards it feels like I still need to pass more urine, so this cycle is definitely looking like a bust. I have a follow up with my RE on the 17th and we’ll see what we should try from there. But don’t you just love Murphy? My first proper fertility cycle in months and everything goes wrong!!!

    Your chart looks wierd, but seeing ovulation is confirmed then dont worry too much. You would have gotten a + OPK because of the trigger shot. the OPK picks up LH which is chemically almost the same as hcg which is what the trigger shot is

    Ugh, that is frustrating!! But still keeping fingers crossed though – your being sick can definitely affect the temps but wouldn’t affect your cycle. As long as you know you when you’re ovulated I’d say you’re in with a chance!!

    Fingers crossed!!

    Well when it comes to Shari’s TTC- is it not always just plain weird? I think you thought me more about TTC than any one else with all the unexpected things that has happend to you.

    You will never know – it’s not all lost? We can only cross fingers!

    Long times since we had a chat. Decided to read up on you since I don’t ever sign up on any of the other sites anymore. Work has been crazy and the same goes for my own cycles. Made an appointment with FS for the 27th just to check things out. Nothing interesting from my side – just work-work-work!

    So how are you doing? What’s happening in terms of the New Zealand plans?

    Take care

    Lots of luv

    Hi Sharon,

    Keep an open mind, who knows what could happen.
    Is there anything you can do to boost your immune system?
    Suggestion: Squeeze lemon in water, which will help the acidity in your body become more alkaline (yes I know it sounds like an oxymoron) – your body ph balance has a lot to do with your wellbeing.
    Take good care of yourself over the weekend.

    Coach Louise
