UM, FAM help? Please!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I think we had a big boo boo last night. Jake is almost 8 mos old now and I got my first period at 6 mos (which really sucks. I didn't get it for 18 mos w/ my first). I had just bought the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility about 2 days before I got it. I knew something was going on b/c of the mucous thing, which I knew enough about to prevent getting pregnant for 3 years (but not enough to prevent getting pg w/ Jake while on vacation and not watching the calendar/paying attention to my mucous. LOL!) Haven't had one yet since then.

So I bought an Ovuscope from Target on Tues after a friend suggested it. I had had 2 weeks of eggwhite by that point and was getting pretty fed up. She said it might be nice to have a 4th sign (3rd for me since I haven't been checking my cervix, though I keep thinking I should start). It showed ferning Tues and Wed (I do it in the AM. Lick the glass and let it dry while I shower). My temp also went up on Wed, so yeasterday morning was my 3rd day of temps above the baseline, plus the ovuscope showed no ferning at all, so I told dh it was safe and we had some fun (4 yo slept in his own bed on his own for a change! No asking involved! Hooray! LOL!). Now this morning, my temp was down again and I used the ovuscope and it was complete ferning. What do you think?

God, I hope I'm not pregnant!!! Dh is a grad student and I'm currently temping part-time. I just don't know how we'll handle it! I might even consider abortion, though I hate even saying that. I mean, Jake's not even a year old. I don't want my milk to dry up on him! Arg!!! I mean, I've slipped twice in all the times I've had sex in my life and I've had a baby to show for it both times. I have reason to be paranoid. Anyone have any explanation for the 3 days of high temps and apparent ovulation, then the low temp and ferning w/ the ovuscope? Thanks so much!

Never mind. Now I'm showing infertile signs and I got my period again this morning! Cramps and all. Arg!!! At least I'm sure this one HAS to be annovulatory since I'm 100% sure I didn't ovulate 2 weeks ago! This really sucks! Why couldn't I just not get a period for 18 months like last time I was nursing? LOL!
