Well, I am just about the least fun person to be around right now.
My mood is just black and miserable. I cry at everything and I’m bloody fed up.
On the plus side my temperature has gone up, so even though FF hasn’t confirmed it yet, I’m pretty sure I’ve ovulated. I’d say day 12 (I thought it was going to be early this month).
And now… the two week wait.
Only this month it really IS a two week wait as I have NO pregnancy tests left after chucking them all out after last months depressing cycle.
And I’m not buying any either.
One question remains.
Do I continue to take my temperature?
The thing is, even without testing, my temperature is usually a little elevated when I am pregnant. It pops up by about 0.2 of a degree.
Waking in the morning and getting temperature readings that are my normal 98.3 or lower are going to set the tone for the whole day.
A whole day of depression over not being pregnant.
I think it might be healthier if I just put my thermometer away and wait for my usual end of cycle spotting to let me down gently.
Can I stay away from the thermometer?
Is it possible?
I think I’ll take it tomorrow to get a crosshair on FF (I know that will happen as I already tried inputting tomorrow’s temp 😉 ), and then I’ll leave it for the rest of the month.
Surely symptom spotting alone is far better for my mental health than testing and temping every day?
Is there any advantage to knowing about early failures?
I know I’m ovulating and I know the sperm is finding the egg. I don’t need to keep confirming that, do I?
Deep breath. I can do this. I can walk away.
I can stop obsessing.
But for reference:
- Pre-AF spotting ranges from 12-15dpo
- AF arrival ranges from 13-16dpo
So my AF arrival window in total is 12-16dpo, which works out as:
Monday 1st July – Friday 5 July
PLEASE LET THIS BE THE MONTH!!!!!!!!
