Take a step back. Another.
And another. One more. There, yes, good.
Now lie upside down with your back against the wall.
Close one eye and cover the other with your hand.
Peek through the remaining pinkish crack at the cycle chart 15 feet away from you.
Do you see what I see?
If you stare at the temperature chart long enough, it starts to look positive. That is 'positive' as in the way you hope a collection of numbers and dots and lines should look, and not in a 'get knitting' way.
Ovulation seems to have been nailed down on CD16 this time, which is good to see I think, it's a day earlier than usual, giving some extra time to the luteal phase, and from there on we have a steady rise in temperature.
A dip after 6 days fits in with some patterns, indicating implantation dip, and the temperature has risen constantly from then on again.
Today is CD25, and now again, despite a general resignation that it just wouldn't, or couldn't happen, I'm back thinking "maybe".
I've actually laughed at myself today for getting sucked back into it again just 3 days or so from the end of the cycle.
I like to work off facts and figures, and 22 failures in a row was a damning one, but a nice chart pattern is a good one.
I wonder if I sound as much of a sucker as I feel.
