13 DPO

I should start AF today.  Normally my temperature has taken a huge nose dive by now.  
It still hasn't.  I caved late last night and took a test, which was, of course, NEGATIVE. The chart is looking REALLY good, but I'm afraid that as usual, it's too good to be true.  I've noticed that I've been extra hungry and more tired than normal the past day or so as well.  But all of those symptoms sometimes happen when AF is coming, too.  Grouper asked me again last night why I'm always so negative about my chances of getting pregnant.  I told him because I was tired of always getting my hopes up and then getting kicked in the teeth.  He just doesn't get it sometimes.  This morning my temperature held fairly steady, and I was going to test again, but I couldn't bear to do it.  So I guess I'll test again tomorrow if my temperature holds.  Maybe I should just follow FF's advice and wait until Sunday and stop giving myself major mindf***.  

But, honestly, check out this comparison chart of the last four consecutive months. This month is orange. It's looking pretty good, right??  Or maybe, as I fear, it's another month like the month in green.  We'll see.


  1. yuck, charting just sucks. I think you are right that men do not get this part of this. I think it took 2.5 yrs for my husband to finally get that maybe this was serious. Personally, I hate HPT and rarely use them, do what ever you can live with. Hoping for good news for you, but here to support you either way.

  2. *hugs* I feel for you Gidget, I do. Like I said this morning, if AF is still a no show today - test with FMU tomorrow and text me right away. haha. Fingers crossed for you - if not, I look forward to hearing about your journey with your doc.

  3. It does look good -- I'm hopeful for you!
    Interestingly, my husband takes this much more like you, while I'm the one that (secretly) gets her hopes up and then is crushed after the negative. Sigh.
