Glad to hear you got your smiley. I'm so curious to see if the cups help you. If it doesn't work for us this month, I might try them next month. Do you put it in after each BD, and keep it in all day or just a few hours? Then put it back in after next BD?
I do temp…it's supposed to help pinpoint ovulation but even that isn't always accurate or easy to spot. Some women have ovulation symptoms (pains) and I felt it last month, but not this month.
It can be difficult to temp at the same time each day. Especially if you wake super early certain mornings or need to use the bathroom. You need 4 good solid hours of sleep, apparently, to get a proper bbt temp - no texting, walking around before temping. So….if you can, set a timer on your phone for the same each morning, say 5:30am, and take the temp. My thermometer keeps the temp on there, so I can record it later in the morning. I do feel like it makes me more anxious, though, so I might need to take a month off temping.
We are keeping mum as well. We don't plan to tell anyone until we are sure. Weekend was good, AF due on Thursday or Friday, so I'm waiting to test. No real symptoms, I am having some "AF" symptoms (i think!). I'm having a fullness or cramping but it could be normal AF cramping or just fullness after eating, who knows anymore! The symptom checking is also making me crazy….
Hoping for a BFP! Hope you get your xmas announcement!
