Darcy, I'm adding my voice to the chorus: I think the timing still has a good chance of working out! FX for you... And yes, you're lucky to have made it before your clinic's holiday closure: I started my current cycle too late to O before my clinic closes, and that's why I'm sitting this cycle out. Hurrah for things working out!
rs11, the madness really is never-ending... I personally have missed seeing a total-dark-line-positive OPK on a cycle where all other evidence pointed to a typical ovulation, but it only happened once and I was only (!) POAS 2x day.
soto, that sounds promising!
Baby dust to SanDiego, and Darcy, and scorpioma, and Friederike, and mrsandmrs!!!
mrsandmrs, thanks for asking about the job... It was 8 days of hard, hard work, the sort of long hours and exhausting climbing around in ceilings and crawlspaces and air handler units that really makes me question how on earth I'll keep working once I'm pregnant! And if I'd been able to insem before leaving, I doubt any fertilized egg would've implanted, because I was just so hard on my body that week. I still mourn missing my first perfect ovulation... But then the pay cheque arrived a couple days ago, and I gotta say that it makes me feel better, because it'll pay for more baby-making.
AFM: This isn't TTC related, but I need to share because I'm so sad... I came home today to find that my chickens were killed in a terrible attack. I live in the city, and only had three hens, and it looks like something got into their enclosed run. It may even have been my old cat, who has been quite the stalker in his day... But maybe a raccoon? Gah. It's so awful. I can't believe it.
Fillefantome, can I please be moved to Taking A Break?
As mentioned above, my clinic'll be closed when I O this cycle, so we're not trying again until January,
