We're back after quite the trip. A lot of drinking was done, and none by me. Well, I had a few waters and one diet coke.
Remind me next year that I don't necessarily enjoy being around tons of crazy partiers for a day-long drinking extravaganza. Not my scene. But I did have fun with the group we hung out with, as you can see:
Now back to infertility...
I am on day 17 and believe it or not, my peak day was day 14. Woo hoo! That is text book! It's all about small accomplishments. I may not be able to rejoice in a pregnancy just yet, but I can definitely celebrate the strides my reproductive organs are able to make. Great progesterone last cycle and a day-14 peak day this cycle. Speaking of which, aren't those two things connected? Maybe great progesterone last time got things on track for a good ovulation two weeks later.
I know you don't need to ovulate on day 14 to get pregnant, but it's just further evidence that things are normalizing. This cycle I had nine days of mucus prior to my peak, and 10 KL AD (clear, stretchy, lubricative, all day) on my peak day.
The one thing that might not be totally normal is that I start having mucus right after the last day of my period, with no dry days in between. I haven't been told that this is a problem, necessarily, but I know it's not perfect. This time it was very good quality right away on day six - 10KL x2 - but then the next day the mucus quality lessened (more like what you'd normally see at the beginning of the mucus pattern - 8C x2) and then worked itself back up to 10KL by the day before my peak day.
The one problem on the horizon, though, is that my peak +7 will be on a Sunday. I am going to have to figure something out. I'll call around to local hospitals, and if that doesn't work out (which I don't expect it to because I've tried this before), I'm going to call my doctor and ask whether he thinks peak +6 or peak +8 is better. Any suggestions?
