Here’s a post I made today on FertilityFriend:
I’m really sorry to those of you who are out for this round. Maybe you should start a new thread & keep supporting each other. If AF comes soon for me, I’ll probably be joining you On the bright side, I’m starting to feel like we’ve been becoming a little family here. It’s nice to talk to people who are going through the same types of struggles.
Hubby & I breed sugar gliders & hedgehogs (http://www.dormanexotics.com). Our websites aren’t done yet, but I have a few cute pictures up.
Well I had a crappy sleep night. I just kept waking up. Grrr. So my temps are pretty unreliable. I just posted this in the forum:

I’m guessing you’ll all tell me all of my temps are throw-away, but I figured it can’t hurt to ask. The first time I woke up was probably about an hour after I fell asleep. My temp was 98.28, which is really high for me. The next time I woke up, I think it was 97.36 (going from memory here). Then it jumped up to 97.76. I laid in bed for a little while longer & it got up to 97.8 (but I’m not really counting that one). When I tried FF’s temp adjuster putting the 1st two and then tried it again putting the 1st & 3rd temps in, it adjusted me to 98.57 and 98.41…which is REALLY high for me. Can that be right? Would my “real” temp have actually been even higher than the 98.28? If all of my temps had been kind of low, I don’t think I’d be as curious, but my temps have been so good this month, the thought of it going even higher than yesterday was kind of exciting! For now, I put in the 97.76. I thought maybe some of you might be experienced with this & have some thoughts on it.
It’s either really good & my temp would have gone up today….or it could actually be a drop. A small drop is no biggie, but I am really hoping that it wouldn’t really have been as low as 97.36….grr. I didn’t test today. If I had slept well & had a temp rise, I think I would have. But I didn’t even have a faint line yesterday, so maybe tomorrow if . The good news (I think) is that I’m at 14 DPO (If FF got the ovulation date right) & not even a hint of pink when I go to the bathroom (and trust me, I am checking…lol). My longest LP since I’ve been temping is 15 DPO. I’m going to try & actually be productive at work & keep my mind off this as much as I can. I can’t believe how much this has been consuming my mind. I was doing so good over the past few months with just being content with things.
DH & I had a good talk last night. I sort of called him out on not being as emotionally invested in all of this as I am. We’re just so crazy busy that he feels like we’re not ready & he doesn’t even have time to sit around & think about it & get excited about it. I told him there really isn’t ever a “ready”. It’s always going to be scary. We just have to take a leap of faith & know it’ll work out. He definitely wants kids. It’s just not something that’s always on his mind, so I wanted to make sure he actually wants this & that we are trying for the right reasons. Anyway…it was a good talk & I think we both felt good about it.
Uggh….so late for work…..again. I just can’t seem to get moving in the mornings. So tired!
