5dpo Let’s Talk Chart

Cause if I’m obsessing over it this much, then the least I can do is share it, eh?

Sooo, I originally thought ovulation was day 12 as I had a big temp spike on CD13. However, I was really confused by ovulation pain that day (which I never get after ovulation).

On CD14 my temp dropped to the exact figure (97.9) it always seems to be the day after ovulation, so that, coupled with the pain and ewcm the day before makes me pretty certain that CD12’s temp was some kind of weird anomaly and ovulation was actually CD13.

All well, and good, and it puts me at 5 days past ovulation (dpo) today.

And that is all I have to say about it.

Oh, except that I did order some high sensitivity pregnancy tests over the weekend, despite saying I would never test again.

Why? Because last month I think it was worse to have my hopes up and feel like such a fool after 15 days of thinking I might be, than it is to repeatedly get a negative test at 10dpo and be fairly certain that you’re out for the month.

And this time around I am going to double-test, i.e. use two sticks, AND save the urine for a third test if there is any speculation after 5 minutes, just so that I don’t get any evaporation line issues clouding the results.

Yes I am crazy.

Yes I am an engineer. This is just how I like to do things ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I had a scan and the gynecologist told me there’s the egg! So that evening the earth moved and I was sure I was pregnant. Not at all. Guess it really is more difficult at 40. ๐Ÿ™

  2. LOL, good luck this month!! I don’t test until my period’s due because otherwise I just feel crazy, but I can’t help knowing what day I’m on. ๐Ÿ™„
