Well today is CD 14 and I don’t have much to share since I’m still not ovulating. I thought the test lines were getting darker each day but after today I am thinking that’s not the case. My test line today looked pretty darn similar to yesterday’s. You just gotta love confusing ovulation test strips!
Here’s a pic from today’s though:
Also, I just love this meme because my husband will always ask me if I’ve peed on my stick for the day
Well today is CD 13 and I am still not ovulating, but I am hopeful that I will be soon! Since CD 11 my test line has gotten darker each day and I am assuming that’s a good thing. Even though it’s probably just a coincidence…for some reason I feel like I might actually ovulate this month.
I feel like a lot of women who are trying to conceive can get down in the dumps if it takes longer than a month or so to get pregnant. I will admit, I am one of those women! It hasn’t even been a full four months that we have been trying and yet I am still so impatient. There are people out there and even in my life that it took a year, two years, or longer to get pregnant. Then there are the people who will never get to experience the joy of pregnancy at all. I don’t know my ‘fertility fate’ yet so until I have been trying for a year then I am no longer going to be so pessimistic about it. It can definitely be annoying hearing “just relax and it will happen” but I think it is a pretty valid statement. Unless you are struggling with infertility, of course. One of my friends was trying for months and then once they took a TTC break then a few weeks later she found out she was pregnant. I am not quite ready to take a break yet though since I feel like my body is still just taking some time to get back on track.
It will happen when it’s meant to happen! (The other annoying thing I keep telling myself since that’s what people keep saying to me)
Test line gradually getting darker!
The line is very faint but here’s a close up!
If you are interested then here is my vlog from today as well
Well today was cycle day 11! I tested and sadly I am not ovulating. I am still going to test for the next 6 days and we’ll see if I ovulate at all or not. I don’t really have an accurate cycle length since I missed my period for two months and was just hoping it was a 28 day cycle. Maybe one of the tests will come up positive on one of the remaining six days but if not then I’ll just wait for my next period to get an exact number for my cycle length.
Also, I just want to say thanks to my subscribers…all 4 of you! I know this can be a tough journey and it’s nice to have some ladies who I can relate to. I enjoy reading your posts and I wish you all luck on your journey from TTC to pregnancy!

Angel and Mittens
Okay, so this post has nothing to do with TTC but it does have something to do with being a mom. Well, a mom of two furbabies! Even though they are nothing like a real child I still feel like I’m getting some ‘practice’ in. They are both very needy, especially Angel. She always has to have my attention…well, when it suits her. I have had Mittens since I was 12 and my husband and I adopted Angel in August 2010. I have so much love for them so I can’t wait to feel the love I will have once I have a baby!
Tomorrow is CD 11 so hopefully I will have some good news to share!!
It is getting close to cycle day 11!! In two more days I’ll be testing and will see if I am ovulating. I’m still not sure of what my cycle length is since I went two months without a period so we’ll see if there is an LH surge or not. I’m going to test starting on CD 11 and will test for seven days. If I don’t ovulate at all then I will just wait until my next period so I can get an accurate cycle day length. I know it may take a while but eventually my body will be back on track!
Hopefully these next couple of days go by fast!!
Also, (unrelated to TTC) I just want to say Happy Veterans Day to all of those who have served, past and present. Thank you all for your service! My husband has been in the Air Force for 8 years and he is definitely my hero!!
Even though I was disappointed when AF showed up, I was also glad because it meant I would finally be able to track my ovulation.
As you know, AF just showed up at the beginning of this week. So why would I take an ovulation test already? Because I have issues! HAHA. It is WAY to early to test for an LH surge and I know that. I just got anxious and decided I would take one just for the heck of it I guess. My Wondfo ovulation test strips haven’t come in yet so that means I wasted one of my more expensive ones.
I need to stop being so darn impatient!
Even though AF showed up really late, I am going to test my ovulation based on a 28-day cycle this month since that is what my cycle used to be. I promised myself I would wait until CD 11 before I test again. Here’s to keeping my promise to myself!!
The BFN…no smiley face.
