So I have GOOD NEWS and BAD NEWS.......
After my R.E. blatantly told me that I was wasting
my time by charting and that most woman have
no Idea when they ovulate, I was hell bent on
proving him wrong.
He said that because I have a 28 day cycle I definitely
ovulate on day 14. I told him that because I have been
charting for 6 months, I know that I ovulate on day 18.
After all, my OPK's, cervical mucus and BBT all told me so.
And so the diagnostic testing began, every morning
at 7am, I went in for both blood work and the dildo
cam. Every afternoon at around 2:00 I would call
for my results (not that I really know what they mean)
CD 14 was on thanksgiving, this was the day
I was to ovulate according to my R.E. At 2:00 I called
to hear my results, my LH was still low, no spike.......No ovulation!!
TAKE THAT R.E!!!
CD 15 passed, no ovulation.....
Today is CD 16, I called at 2:00 and to my surprise my
LH had spiked, apparently I will be ovulating todayish!!!
Here is the GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS:
Good News, my R.E. was wrong, and I love when arrogant
people are wrong.
Bad News, I was wrong, and I hate when I am wrong ;(
Good News, I will ovulate on day 16 (or 17?), which means
my Luteal Phase is not as deficient as I thought.
Bad News, I have to do the BD tonight because the lady on the
phone told me to, BUT my husband is not in a very good mood and
I'm a little nervous to bring it up.
So, Turns out neither my R.E. or I were right.....but it all comes
down to that famous Dr. Phill quote:
"would you rather be right? or be happy?"
I would rather be happy, I'm happy I was wrong,
I'm happy I ovulate a little earlier then I thought. Of course
I have to visit the dildo cam one more time to make sure I
actually ovulated but still, I think over all, it was a GOOD
NEWS kinda day........now if you will excuse me I'm off
to convince my exhausted husband to "get it on!"
