Can you smell me?

Yes, I did ask a couple of my girls this today… and I’m not talking B.O. here.

I have a REALLY sensitive nose and I never know if smells are strong enough that other people can smell too, or if it’s just me. Like hemorrhoids, yes, I can smell hemorrhoids. But not on me, lol, that was just an example of things I know the smell of that others don’t.

So, all day I can smell myself and it’s potent. Why? I’m about to ovulate and I’m at the watery CF point. Can you guys smell yourself when you’re at that point? I’ve honestly never noticed it on anyone else, I’m also assuming everyone smells differently on that front just like your general scent is different.

I ask one of my care aids if she can smell me (not specifying for what) and of course another walks into the office at that very second so I figure, why not, and ask her too. The first rolls over to me (we’re sitting down charting) and takes a big whiff of my boobs sternum thinking I’m talking about perfume. Nothing. Other girl? nothing. HOW CAN THEY NOT SMELL ME!?

It’s not an unpleasant smell at all, faintly sweet and comfortable (was that TMI? lol) but just because I know what it is, I get self-conscious. So have you ever noticed your smell change when you’re about to ovulate?

On the bed post over night?

CD 16 OPK-

Still, and I’ve been OPKing it twice a day for 3 days. I’ve had no spike in my temps and it seems like CM has gone away. ? Did I have an uber short window this month? A random delay on my ovulating?

I’m not loosing it, the lines on my OPKs are getting lighter. What’s with me and ovulation? I used to be a steady day 14. Was last month the beginning of some new and (very much un)improved cycles?

I’m trying to be (kinda) productive today. I spent the morning doing Monster’s school work with him (although the new joke is to pretend that every letter is a T and I ended up coming out of it covered in chalk). Then i moved on to the time-consuming but lazy task of sorting out all the new pictures on the computer so I could move them to the external hard drive hubby got me (cheaper than forever buying new memory cards for the camera) and I sat doing that for a good couple hours. Now to pick some to print for the living room wall. Ya, lame, but it’s a distraction none the less. I really just want to read but I seem to have the attention span of a nat at the moment (hence the 2 hours sorting out 1 file of pics, lol)

I’m feeling kinda silly today…but in the laziest imaginable form. So basically I keep making joke in my head and I’m too lazy to laugh at them.

So song of the day will be silly.

This brings me back to car trips with my mummy and brothers, listening to Weird Al and Dr. Demento

Baby mine

CD 14

Song of the day is from Bette Midler. I found it on a Disney cd shortly after my last miscarriage and it makes me super sucky. I’m just having a bit of a sucky day today I guess. Not crazy sad, just a touch needy maybe. It’s that time of the cycle when I’d have expected a +opk and it almost seems like they are getting lighter. But It could just be me. I know I haven’t ovulated yet and all signs point to “about to happen” so I’m just hoping that my increasingly lighter opk’s are just the tests themselves.

Today feels like a curl up and read kind of day. I’m so distracted it’s taken me half an hour to write this. I better stop while I’m ahead.

Ovulation detected

Alls I can say is why the bleep does it take 4 days to detect ovulation? Yes, fertility friend just told me what I was already sure about, I ovulated day 15, and it’s taking some time for my temps to catch up with me. We’ll see what they do the next couple days and I’ll make that progesterone guess before my labs again.

On the up side….

I made a cork board today. Ok, I know that you’re looking at me like a freak, but I have a thing for sticky notes and organization and my hubby is not thrilled with them being left all over the house (plus he keeps accidentally throwing them out or using them for his notes). So I got this huge beautiful wood frame that must have had a mirror in it before and I made me a beautiful cork board. This kinda goes along with my strange love of stationary.  I also have the desire to paint an entire wall into a chalk board but I can’t see my hubby letting me do that since he already told me he doesn’t want me writing on the walls.

CD 16 (don’t read if you are on a need to know basis only)

So I’m on day 16 and I have ovulated day 14 on the dot  for the last few cycles, normally very obvious with the signs (high, soft, ++CM), but not this time. Whats up? So, day 15 I get my first +OPK with high and soft but where is all that CM? And today I’m med, med, and dry. So I should have ovulated last night right? annoying. The time I finally have my hubby available around ovulation and I don’t know what my body is doing. And my temps have been great this month too, low and steady. I’m really hoping that everything is going to do it’s business even though I’m in doubt.

And in order to distract me from myself this morning my son had orange crap draining from his ear. I love a ruptured ear drum! And YAY for a 2 hr wait in the walk-in clinic (but could have been much worse). I just finished with his last run of antibiotics on Tuesday.

Merry Christmas!
