Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all have a WONDERFUL celebration with your families! I know holiday’s can be hard for us IFers (especially for those of us who will be surrounded by children and babies on Thursday!) but I hope that you all can enjoy your family and be thankful for everything you DO have in your life!
My husband and I will be hosting 15 people at our apartment on Thursday. Yup…crazy I know! Not only that, but we’ll have 6 people sleeping in our house this weekend and another 4 at a nearby hotel! We host either Easter or Thanksgiving at our place every other year. It’s nice to have a break from holiday traveling every once in a while! I’m very excited for everyone coming and for the food, and for the fun! We have 21 pounds of turkey set to go! I’ve baked about 6 pumpkins to make pies and other yummy food with. People will also be bringing food, so thankfully (see what I did there?) we won’t have to make all of the feast!
While I’m extremely happy to not have to travel and that we are having so many relatives and friends over, there is one problem: when to do the BD?? According to FertilityFriend.com (which I have been diligently putting my BBT’s into everyday for tracking) my possible big-O day is Wednesday. Luckily most of our house guests will not be in yet, but 1 will. Not only that, but FF is estimating based on a “normal” woman’s cycle…as this is my first cycle diligently using FF, they have know way of know what my reg cycles are like, and frankly, neither do I. This is my first cycle on the Metformin, so I have no idea what will happen. I started doing OPK’s on Sunday…so far the elusive 2nd line has evaded me. This could mean that if things go according to my hopeful plans, the DH and I may have to BD with 6 guests in our house…yeah. Awkward. Have any of you ever come up against this problem? What do you do?? Do we just hope that my O day is AFTER thanksgiving? I’ll keep tracking, and I’m not really sure that I WILL ovulate this cycle, but you never know. Any advice?
