I interrupt these endless posts on how I spent my birthday to bring you news on my menstrual cycle.
I am currently on Day 29, Hour 9 of my cycle, and have not gotten my period yet. Not really a big deal (as I will tell you in greater detail later), but the thing that is making me wonder is that we had sex (yes, we're having sex here now) on Day 18, Hour 13. Which is not really a big deal (for the sake of this story), except that I can't quite figure out what my temperature shift means this time (Note: a woman's temperature goes up .5 degrees AFTER ovulation).
See, for the past 11 years, I never took my temperature and just relied on cervical mucus as my indicator of fertility (as well as my regular and consistent cycles). But, over the past couple of months, I have been taking my temperature regularly because of some 180degree.com health stuff which involves raising your temperature to be in better metabolic health (but that's another story).
So, this month, my temps were:
Day 13 = 97.2
Day 14 = 97.5
Day 15 = 97.6
Day 16 = 97.3
Day 17 = 97.5
Day 18 = 97.7
Day 19 = 98.2
Day 20 = 98.1
Day 21 = 98.4
(You get the idea.)
You see where I'm going with this? Where does it look like that jump occurred?
My cervical mucus has remained consistent to what it usually is (on its respective days throughout).
My previous cycles have been:
28 Days 12 Hours
30 Days 10 Hours
So, as you can see, nothing to really concern ourselves over other than the confusion with the temperatures not matching up to when I think I ovulated based on cervical mucus (which I would have put at around Day 16).
I will keep you posted.
And now, back to your regularly scheduled blogging.
