March Rewind

Cycle 3  is going to be a repeat of March, with the early spotting that lasts days and days and finally culminates in the most painful, terrible period ever. Oh, what fun!

I would much rather be pregnant.

Rereading posts and keeping track like this HAS brought a potential pattern to light.  If this every other month spotting / pain pattern continues, that may help a doctor diagnose some potential problems.  I am hoping that between my calendars and this blog, I will be easily diagnosed, if it comes to that…

So today, when the second day of spotting continued, I caved and bought an Ov-Watch.  Check out the website here:

I hope this bizarre little ovulation predicting watch is the extra layer I need to get the timing right.  I hope the problem is as simple as timing...

Basically, this watch measures your secreted chloride ions, which vary at different points in a woman’s cycle.  It is similar to ovulation prediction kits, but without having to pee on a million sticks.  And the watch will tell you your 4 most fertile days — allegedly the 4 days prior to ovulation.  This is similar to some of the newer kits, but I am intrigued by not having to pee a lot to find out if I may or may not ovulate in the next 12-48 hours (we’ve really got this down to a science, haven’t we…).

I also think I am going to bite the bullet and start temping.  I bought a new basal body temp. thermometer (the Walgreens one seemed off to me and I read some not-so-great reviews), so maybe this will help me to understand if and when I am ovulating.

And here I thought having sex and getting pregnant could be fun.  I’m bummed that the period is imminent this month, but I also understand that it is only our third month trying and that is not yet cause for concern.  I remain optimistic that it will happen when it is meant to happen.  I just hope that’s sooner rather than later!!!
