Because you're dying to know.
Okay, because I'm dying to tell you.
I saw my ND on Wednesday for acupuncture and unpacked the OPK debacle of the past few days. She was excited - this meant something had happened! But she was also curious about the fact that the two second lines that I saw were getting lighter rather than darker and since she was the one that gave me the OPK sticks (they're some cheapy generic ones), she wanted to call the company to see what this might mean. Why not cover all bases, right?
Once I was in my blissful pinned state, off she went to investigate.
Post-pinning she sat down with an answer to my theories.
According to her - and the OPK company - it is very likely that I ovulated earlier than we were anticipating and that the two days of faint lines were the tail end of things. So in some ways, I was in fact seeing things backwards!
We'll know more for sure if my period arrives in good time this month. This will definitely confirm this theory even more. Sadly I haven't been taking my BBT this month so I can turn to that for advice.
So there you go! It is on good authority that yours truly has ovulated all by herself!
Now if only Irish Boy miraculously produced one magic sperm that would save us months of money, needles, and potential heartache.
Hey, a girl can dream!
