Last week was intense emotionally and that brought on a whole lot of *coughs* moments of an intimate kind. Having looked at my Duo Fertility charts, I could predict that when my cycle was behaving, I’d ovulate around day 12 or 13. The monitor flagged fertile days around the same period this month. I thought we’d nailed it… (getting naughty on the right days..) and nailed it out of love not via the need to procreate.
I thought wrong. I plugged in my monitor today to check the temperature, I wanted it to confirm that progesterone had kicked in and that I had indeed ovulated. Instead it flagged a dip and not a small dip either. A BIG MOFO dip that never shows on my charts. I’m guessing this is an ovulation dip, it matches what you see on those perfect ovulation charts and apparently a significant dip is rare. Now if I wasn’t ill, I’d be all, ‘Hurrah! Let me go get into my favourite lingerie and wait for my lover by the door’ but my lady bits are a no go zone. My body wants a blanket and a hot water bottle, not sex.
I’m looking up at the universe and doing this right now..
Update: Might not even be an ovulation dip, could just be from me being all germy… reply from the folks at Duo Fertility:
Laughing like a mad woman and banging my head. Also, going to adopt Mr.Husband’s approach and see this as a reawakening. Time for a dose of f*** it therapy! (Yes, it really does exist.. as seen in Grazia)
