I came home last night and opened up my charting spreadsheet to enter my P4 of 1.7 from Dr. C. Then I had some fun with my chart. I overlayed it for the first time with last month. They are weirdly similar. Then, for the heck of it, I entered dummy values to visualize what my completed chart at the end of this cycle would look like...

Hold on, I'm obsessing, big time... and I don't even know for sure that I ovulated.

My main reasoning to keep up the BBT last month was that I had never seen what my LP charts like. Well I don't have that excuse anymore.

And as I was charting my LP last cycle I found myself getting more excited and more drawn in by every little dip and rise. Getting excited about things that meant nothing. I had a really great looking chart. It meant absolutely nothing. I don't need to do that again.

I do need to get a good night's sleep. So last night, the thermometer went back in the case and was put away.

I either O'd or I didn't. We either got the sex right or we didn't. It's out of my hands. We didn't really expect anything to happen this cycle anyhow, so I refuse to drive myself silly to get a mostly meaningless number right now.

By the way, Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Did you know St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of Engineers? He is and I'm a big old St. Paddy Lovin Engineer!

I did not even understand half your post. Lallalalala too close to when Mr. tries to exlain circuit boards.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

When do you get the recheck blood test? I hope it shows you really did ovulate on your own. That would be great!
I wish I had the patience to chart.

I hope your blood test shows that you did ovulate! That's so cool about St. Pat! I never knew that. What kind of engineer are you? I have an EE degree.
