There is a reason I am called Planner Bud

As many of you may remember, I talked about the "relax method" of TTC. I guess I did try my own version of that over vacation. In a way I was forced to. I remember on Thursday morning taking my BBT out of my bedroom and packing it; however, it must have jumped ship before I zipped up the suitcase, for I could not find it anywhere come Thursday evening. Instead of trying to find a pharmacy in Orlando (which I guess I could have done), I decided I would "wing it" as much as I could. I still used OPKs and checked CM. I mean I can't through everything out the window that would ludicrous! "Maybe not temping will be helpful to me" I thought. "Maybe this will help to relax me." I definitely enjoyed not having to make sure I woke up at 5:15 every morning to temp.

Fast forward to this morning. I was positive I O'ed on cd 18 when my next two temps jumped up over 97 degrees, a sure sign of O. Today it was back down (96.73). Now the temp is not my normal superlow temp; it could still show O, but I have like 3 other temps earlier like that. I truly believe that if I didn't miss those five days of temping my chart would magically make sense. I know, makes no sense. I and just going to seduce DH into BD every other night or more if I can until I see some progress. I am still not giving up hope that I did O on cd18. Any thoughts??

At least I have a lot to think about in the next few weeks. I start work on next Friday and the kids come next Wednesday. I have tons to plan for. Maybe it will take my mind off of things. Yay right!

I decided to start temping this cycle while I was on vacation in Canada. Wouldn't you know the only BBT I could find is in Celsius only?! This should make for an interesting cycle.

Too bad I didn't bother to wake up at my normal time so I have no idea if my temps are "real" or not!
