Okay, yeah, that makes sense. And if I discount those three with the open circles, then I definitely have the shift. And charting or not, I'm about 99% certain I Od that day anyway. Was feeling a bit, ahem, frisky.

If you think those temps might be artificially high, then you may have O'd on CD14, if not then I agree with CrunchyMama - there is no temp shift on your chart yet Yes, those three days I temped a bit later than usual.

Good luck on your trip! It sounds like it could be a fun time. Can you tell me more about what you wrote above? I don't put a lot of faith in the OPKs, but judging by my last two cycles and what I've always known about...
I didn't realize that anyone had an issue with the title, although I'll admit that I haven't had time to keep up.

Okay, ya'll. Here's something whacky for you. Last night, the Whirling Dervishes of Konya came to our little 'burg of Jacksonville, FL.

Did a little meet and greet, saw every Turkish person in Jax, plus some...
I thought your DD looks Turkish, but then I'm a bit pre-disposed to that direction. Your DS just looks like a really cute baby to me.

Here ya go: Binnur's Turkish Cookbook. Most of her recipes are really great, with appropriate North American substitutions for Turkish ingredients when they aren't available. Afiyet olsun!

I dont know but when the guy gave us our plates both dh and I were like... what is this...???!!!?? We went to this tiny, newly opened Turkish restaurant near...
