Okay then

Well, body, you are messing with my mind. In the middle of my Seattle trip, bam, period starts. That was a 26 day cycle. What the heck. And sadly I still kind of have no idea how long my luteal phase was…. my temps were all over the place from getting up multiple times a night to getting sick.

Ah well. Here we go again.


Now I have the fever

After 8 days of Lamb being sick. EIGHT DAYS STRAIGHT (yes we took her to the doctor on day 7) … all viral. Snot, coughing, high fever… it was awful. None of us were getting sleep and I was staying home with her and we were about to kill each other. Being in quarantine for that long will drive you insane. I was getting up multiple times a night with her, so my morning temps were all over the place.

And then, on Thursday evening I came down withe fever, the coughing, the running nose. And every afternoon since then I get fever and I am a nasty upper respiratory mess.  So I have no freaking clue. NO clue. Did I ovluate? Maybe? Have we been having sex? Absolutely not. I guess this cycle is a bust and on Wednesday I leave for Seattle.

I feel confused and defeated. I was SO confident in my body’s cycles leading up to all of this and now it’s all out the window and I just feel lost. Need to regroup, AGAIN.


It’s been awhile since Lamb was really sick. Over Memorial day weekend we spent the time with her cousins, who got sick. I knew sickness was coming. On Friday Lamb came down the fever in the evening, and it’s Monday and she still has it. She has runny nose and cough. On Saturday evening her fever got up to 104.5 and then Sunday afternoon it was back up to 104.7. Poor kid. Amazingly she’s eating Popsicles and watching tv and asking me to take her to the park… with a 104.7 fever. Crazy. I guess she is as tired of being home as I am!!! Losing my mind.

This morning I got in my car and was headed to work, Lamb was still asleep. She apparently woke up and my husband texted me saying she was freaking out. She wanted mommy. She was coughing and sobbing and refusing to let him touch her. So I had to turn around and go back home and found her in the bed, very upset, poor girl barking like a seal with that cough. Once she calmed down she was better, not so much coughing as much. We snuggled for awhile and eventually she was okay with me leaving for work. I hoping she will be well enough to go to the store with me at least so she can get out. She seemed better this morning, low fever or perhaps fever free.

Anyway it’s been sad with her so sick. Her cousins were tested for strep, flu, etc, All negative. Doctor thinks it is probably the Adenovirus. I would agree with that assessment.

With all this sickness I’ve been so overwhelmed and sleep deprived taking care of her I have been forgetting to temp, take opks etc… hopefully can get that back on track this week.
