Yay for comments! I hope more people start to leave me comments. It helps to know that people care enough to check my journal.
I finished my Clomid, and with the exception of being really tired and sore boobs, I feel fine. I'm having an annoying problem, though...I'm spotting really heavily. It's old blood (black and brown- sorry if too much information) but it's really annoying.
I'm on CD 9 right now and I had a negative OPK. They say to start using them on CD10, so I started a day earlier, but I wanted to be sure.
Hopefully by the end of this coming week/next weekend, I'll have done the IUI!
Uh-oh. Positive OPK this morning. This is not good- my RE's office is closed for the weekend unless you've contacted them ahead of time to let them know you may be needing to see someone for an IUI. I have no way to get ahold of them.
Maybe it's just a fluke? I'll test again in a little bit.
I am so confused! I've had 3 more positives on First Response OPK's, but a digital was negative!
I think we're going to head down there in the morning and have them do an ultrasound on me right away. If it shows I haven't ovulated yet, maybe I'll just get them to freeze the sperm sample and we can have it on hand.
Ugh. I thought this was going to be easier and it's not.
I just decided to not go down. I've taken more digital ovulation tests and they're negative. I trust them more since you don't have to look at the line on them. I think when I cancel my IUI appointment, I'll have them schedule an ultrasound for tomorrow or Tuesday to see what is going on.
Susan- yep, the test line has to be as dark or darker than the control line. First Response tests are known for being sensitive (just like their pregnancy tests), but I'm thinking that it must have been some residual clomid in my system. I've taken another digi and it was negative, and an Answer OPK, and it was in no way close to positive.
I usually ovulate on CD 17-19. I'm fairly confident I have no ovulated yet. I'm really hoping I go down there this morning for an ultrasound and they confirm that, obviously because I don't want to have missed the IUI opportunity, but because I want to prove to them that I know my body. I know that sounds silly, but it's true.
I'm so....what's the word....ambivalent about this cycle. I don't know if it's because my mind is telling me to not be hopeful, or if it's because I have my vacation to look forward to, or what.
Confession: a few months ago, I contacted cheri 22. She's a psychic that is known around pregnancy and trying to conceive websites for predicting when women will get pregnant and their genders. She's has about an 80% rate of being correct. I'm not real big on psychics at all, but it was cheap and a fun thing to do. She said that I would conceive in June and be due in March. So we'll see.
I can't wait to be pregnant again. Really. The thought of it makes me very excited. So I can't quite figure out my feelings right now. Weird.
I like Cheri's prediction. Preggo in June is just around the corner. When is your u/s scheduled for? It will tell you if you ovulated right? I don't think you did. I would trust the digital test before the line one. Tried the line one a few times when we were TTCING before Gabriel and I never got a positive. LOL. It freaked me out so bad.
I know it has been a very long road but I so excited for you b/c I know that one of these days you are going to announce you BFP. You are getting closer and closer to that date!!!!!
