Chicago. Wine. Food. Liquor. Oh...and O.

It appears that I ovulated on Friday, cd 13. Love that it was while we were in Chicago on our little mini-getaway. What is it that makes having sex away from home so hot?! I think it's just nice to get out of the regular routine...whatever it takes, I guess!

This has been a weird week though. I never actually got a positive OPK. Let me mention that I tested about 3-4 times a day since Tuesday! So very weird that I may have missed it. Not sure that means much, but there we have it. My monitor showed a dip on Wednesday which indicated I was fertile, and my temp rose Saturday, significantly. Then on Sunday, I had O pains. Weird transition, but that's really all I have to go on. Fertility Friend did confirm O for Friday as well.

Aside from that, we had a great time away! We met some good friends of ours that live in Denver here in Chicago they are such good people. She did ask me about having kids. Ironically, our last trip with them was a few days after my ectopic pregnancy from the IUD before we got married. I did tell her we've been having some struggles and she was so sweet and supportive. She was easy to talk to about it because while she has kids (3), they are done. Their youngest is 5. I didn't feel like next week I'm going to look at Facebook and see her pregnancy post!

I must admit I had more alcohol than I have in a while. A whopping 5 drinks all weekend.. I don't even feel guilty. This journey can only take so much of my life and I'm sure next week I'll abstain till AF comes again, but for now, I'm glad I relaxed a bit and enjoyed my weekend.

Happy Monday, I'm officially in my 2 week wait, again!


  1. Glad you had a good trip! Who knows, maybe kicking back and having a few drinks will do the trick! I figure its gotta work for both of us one of these months! I was triggered for the first time this month and it does seem to have improved my progesterone levels (based on temps - still waiting for actual results.)Getting impatient!

    Fingers crossed for you!
