Getting Closer

I made my trip to the bathroom early today…. I couldn’t hold my pee anymore. I try to hold off on testing on my OPK until after lunch, as my LH surge is more likely to show up then. Well, after POAS I wiped, and there I saw something beautiful:

EWCM.
A LOT OF IT.

Now, my OPK was negative but still. THERE WAS A LOT OF EWCM! I don’t know if it’s the Origin vitamins finally kicking in or what, but I NEVER see EWCM. I’m very pleased with this. I’m hoping that my O comes early this month.. Like, tomorrow or Thursday early. I’m expecting to O sometime between Friday-Sunday which is THE most inconvenient time for O EVER.

My chorus is going to regional competition this weekend. It’s here in town but I will be at our hotel all day Friday, overnight Friday, and all day Saturday. Not the best for BD!!! I’m going to try and get a BD in tomorrow, and one Friday morning… Or maybe Thursday, and one Saturday night when I come home. It’s going to be tricky, but we’re gonna try.. I have that PreSeed that I bought and haven’t used it yet. I had a very vivid sex dream last night, and in it we used the PreSeed and I remember it was really awesome, heh. I’m looking forward to trying it.

Another snag: Josh twisted his bad knee yesterday and is laid up at home. I had wanted to try and BD tonight but that’s probably going to be a no-go.. I feel OK with it, since my OPK was negative but tomorrow I’d really like to try and get a good session in.

So I’m just waitin on the eggie.. With plenty of EWCM :)

Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go RIGHT NOW!

UGH. The downside of using OPKs to try and conceive: You are supposed to hold your pee for FOUR HOURS before you take a test, and limit your water intake. The problem with this, is that I’ve been taking cranberry capsules to try and keep what I think is a UTI at bay and with those you are supposed to drink a full glass of water. I am also taking Mucinex for CM purposes, and you are supposed to drink a full glass of water with THAT, too!!!! So I drank three full glasses of water this morning, and even though I’ve peed several times this morning and peed last at 8:30 A.M. (it’s nearly 11:30 right now), I HAVE TO GO SO BAD I WANT TO CRY. I’m supposed to hold it until 1:00, but I think I’ll only make it to 12. And that should be OK.
So I’m thinking I’ll ovulate sometime at the end of the week. My lady doctor recommended we try a specific position, due to the fact that I have a tilted uterus. I didn’t know that the first time we got pregnant, and there’s a good chance that we used this position when we conceived the first time.
Wow. Now that you know WAY too much about my urinating habits and sexual position preferences…. Have a good Tuesday!

What we are trying this month

This month we are:

  • Not temping (my waking times have been too sporadic and I think I obsess more after O when I temp)
  • Using OPKs
  • Using Pre’
  • Taking Mucinex
  • Using SME (the right way)

AF is due on September 23rd. Our 3 year wedding anniversary is September 25th. How wonderful of a wedding anniversary gift would that be? :)

T-minus 6 days until “predicted” ovulation.
