Internetz, may I first say how much I adore you? I cannot thank you all enough for your support this past week.
First, the birthday wishes - awesome. Then carrying me through infertility meltdowns 1 and 2. You are the best. Thank you for your comments. So many caring comments - and some just downright hilarious to pull me back up again. THANK YOU.
So in the midst of my 'break' cycles, my ND is having me use OPK sticks just to see what if, anything, my body is doing on the ovulation front. Last month - nothing thank you very much!
This month she wants me to use the OPK sticks again which means she's either some kind of sick sadist or eternally hopeful.
It is CD-17 for me - for those who are following my cycles with baited breath (okay, that's just me), last month's cycle was 35 days long.
I wasn't supposed to start using the OPK's until tomorrow but there have been other goings on down in Ladyville that had me wondering if my body is attempting ovulation all by its big self.
So I peed. On a stick.
And Internetz? I saw a very faint second line!
If you're just tuning in, let me remind you, this is only an OPK!
But still - a faint hope!
Will the damn lines get darker like they're supposed to in the days to come?
Who the hell knows!? It's not like Irish Boy has any sperm to help a girl out if I do ovulate anyways.
(Please send turkey baster and fresh super sperm to PO Box ... too much?)
But if I see a darker second line I will be doing the naturopathy dance of joy.
And for right now, that may be enough.
