Woot! Woot! if it is O. If you have regular, short cycles, I guess O would be around the same time every month. Do you mean like always around the 15th of the month or always around cd15? That can make a big difference (at least to me). Stress, physical or emotional, affects hormones, which can delay O.
It's quite cool, isn't, that our bodies can know when it might not be a safe time to get pregnant and hold things off until times are better. It's also very cool that our bodies can know when it's not safe to give birth and slow down labor or even stop it when we don't feel safe (which is probably a very big reason why so many women seem to need augmentation during labor in a hospital).
My next door neighbor whom I see and talk to almost daily and whom goes to the gym with me got
(can you tell I like that smilie, too?) the same day I did. Do you suppose our cycles might be synchronizing? I think she's on the pill, though. She probably has 2 cycles for every one of mine.
