The Marital Renaissance
I'm back. Perhaps you didn't even miss me since I don't post nearly as often as I intend to. When it comes down to it, there are so many of you that I read every day that somehow there isn't time to post myself.
This past weekend, (OK... from Thursday until last night/this morning) I didn't spend a lot of time near my PC. My husband got home from the corporate office in DC Friday evening. I spent Friday getting ready for his return. I had my eyebrows waxed. I had about 6 inches of my hair cut off (and yet it is still remarkably long...). And then he got home. Friday night...ahhh Friday night. That's all I'll say about that.
Saturday we had to go to a friend's housewarming party. And came home early. Because we couldn't stop thinking about Friday night and it was likely that we would become the first people kicked out of their new home for using their bar in a manner it was clearly not intended for. Yeah, Saturday was a good day.
Sunday? Not quite as good. We went to a garlic festival in the morning, then met his parents at 1:00 for a day on the boat. Which we almost got ourselves thrown off of for using the bow in a manner for which it was not intended. Alright, so technically, I don't think his parents noticed (we kept our hands to ourselves! We aren't animals! But our eyes and thoughts? Totally lascivious) We went to dinner with them and got home around 8:00. I did the usual Sunday night call the family things. Then my wonderful husband helped me out with a new blog design (which will be unveiled soon, I promise!). It made me very happy. And then we...well, I think you've noticed a pattern by now and don't need to hear it again. Suffice it to say, we are in a bit of a renaissance -- after nearly 5 years, I can honestly say we may be outdoing our honeymoon!
And now, for the not so good news. I was terrified that I would ovulate while my husband was gone. I'm charting temperatures for the first time ever. I'm doing OPKs. And so far, no shift in temperatures to indicate ovulation. Nothing but negatives on my OPK. And today is cd19. Shit. This? Is not a good thing. I'm hoping this isn't an anovulatory cycle. I'm thinking it likely is. Either that or it is going to be one fucked up long cycle.
So I need your help. All of you. I'm supposed to take prometrium from ovulation to cd1. I haven't ovulated or else my temperatures are unhelpful in pinpointing it and I didn't do an OPK one day this weekend, so maybe I would have had a positive then? I just don't want to screw up and not take the prometrium. So...what do you all think? What should I do? How can I know for sure? As I've said, I need to feel like I'm doing something, and not taking the pills this late in my cycle feels like not doing something. Should I just start taking them? Seriously, if I weren't charting, I would have started taking them on cd14. And my doctor didn't say that I *had* to chart... What would YOU do?
