I'm so sorry Orandalady. I too had a chemical, early in our TTC journey - and it went bad on the day after my father's funeral. That was sheer hell, but at least everyone expected me to be all weepy...

Maeryn - That was a time when I woke up at 6:15 and temped then instead of my usual 6:45. 1/2 hr is not usually enough to make a huge difference for me, but it could have done.
