Two things

First, I'd like to take a moment to be a big ole attention whore about our F*k With Purpose efforts this cycle:

How's THAT for some superstardom in the sack, eh? Ahem. Sorry for scarring you. I'm just proud of the big effort we made this time around! We weren't taking ANY risks about catching that egg!

Second, I just realized something. Because my ovulation date keeps moving up, it's making my cycles shorter - even with a 14 day luteal phase, I'm still only looking at a 26 day cycle this time around; remember it's the length of time before ovulation that varies - the luteal phase stays pretty much the same, so counting down to the day Aunt Flo is due to arrive is quite accurate.

Anyway, I know this is probably boring as hell, but the point is this: when I started this cycle, I vaguely assumed my testing date would be around June 12 or so. But because I ovulated on CD12 (yes CD12 and I don't care what you say, Fertility Friend!) instead of my original, longer dates of CD16-17, that means my testing date has moved up as well, to June 7!

I know it's obvious, but this has totally stunned me, since I wasn't even thinking of testing until a week later. It seems so close now! Eeek!


  1. You're a rockstar! Way to go with the FWP! Now, you just gotta wait it out! My fingers and toes are crossed for you!

  2. EEK! It is close! This week will fly by for you, I'm sure. Good luck - lots of babydust coming your way!

  3. I'm so jealous of your short cycles! Are you really going to wait until June 7 to test? I O-ed the same day as you and FF is telling me not to test until July 11! I don't think I can wait that long. Well, if I'm not KU, I'm sure AF will be here by then anyways.

  4. Cool. June 7 is when we have our birth class at the hospital. So I will think of you and project baby dust your way!

  5. Wow, way to go! I am impressed and jealous. :P My libido is much higher than MH (still trying to come to terms with that one). I'm not sure how things will be when it's time for us to FWP....

    Speaking of testing, I have a confession. I was cleaning out our bathroom cabinets last night while MH was working the graveyard shift. I found a 2-pack HPT (I thought I might have been KU last year) and there was 1 left. It expires the end of this month so, instead of letting it go to waste (I DID pay for it, afterall :P), I used it. Now, I know it would have taken a miracle for it to be positive, but I was a teeny bit disappointed when I saw the BFN. Yes, I'm crazy. :P
