Looky here


Yes I know what you're saying, "That's a positive OPK. But you got your HCG trigger shot today, so a +OPK is expected." And to which I reply "Yes, but this is the test from last night!" And then we both squeal with delight! Okay maybe not squeal but deffo a happy dance or something!

Last night while I was making dinner, I remembered that I was suppose to do an OPK. During a lull, I ran upstairs to test and then waited for the results. It didn't look too promising so I gave up and went back downstairs to finish dinner. Then this morning while I was getting ready, I look over at it and realize that it's actually positive! I immediately sent up a prayer of thanks to God. This whole time that's all I've been praying for. To ovulate. First things first after all. Next thing I did was made Kevin come upstairs to look at it. This means that I could have possibly ovulated on my own! Of course I'm not leaving anything to chance so I got the shot anyways today at the doctor. During the u/s they saw a follicle on the right side that I heard was measuring 28mm (Dr. T doesn't share anything like that with me, he just tells me "Everything's looking good.") Then they gave me the shot and I was on my way to work with a big smile on my face.
I know that this isn't a BFP, but it's something! Considering that I only ovulated once in 2008, 2009 is looking good! The funny thing is that I did everything wrong this cycle. I had to use provera to start it. I lost my clomid pills and had to start a day late. I've been fighting a sore throat for almost two weeks now. I had my fast food reprieve this week and so I've been eating out every day and drinking sprite (things I only do during the first week to get my fix for the year). Over the holidays I drank and ate my fill. And I kept forgetting to actually do my OPKs so that the first one I did was Wednesday night right before bed and then again yesterday as I was making dinner. And then I've had no symptoms this time around. You know how usually you get those twinges and pulls and know that "something" just has to be going on down there? Yeah, well, I haven't had any of that. My BBTs are finally coming down and I have what could be called an ovulation dip today, but again, with this sore throat, last night was the first night I didn't wake up multiple times in the night hacking away. But whatever, it worked! So I guess I'm officially in my 2ww now! Wow, I don't think I've ever said that before.
