now for the waiting

 I got a near positive OPK on day 12 and panicked. I usually ovulate on day 17 or 18 so, to get a positive this early made me mad! We hadn't BD enough. It can't be happening already! So I panicked, and we BD every night for 3 nights in a row. I got a positive OPK on day 14.  I kept on temping and my temp stayed low. I knew I hadn't O'ed yet.  So we kept at it. I finally got my temp rise today on day 17. I'm not sure why my OPK's turn positive so much earlier than when ovulation occurs. But it does give me a nice heads up! In previous months, my temp rise occured on day 18 or 19. So, my cycle shortened a little this month. This makes me hopeful! I'm glad I won't have to wait quite as long. It may only be a day or two, but I'll take what I can get! We got in plenty of BDing. I think this is the best timing we've ever had. That super early positive OPK really kicked us into gear! So happy about that!

This month, I've cut out caffeine and added green tea to my diet. I've drank one glass every morning. I also used preseed the last two times we BD. My husband has been taking his fertilaide and I've been taking ConceiveEasy. I'm hoping our hard work will pay off this month. I would love nothing more than to tell our family at Christmas. I would be the happiest girl in the world. I'm trying not to think about it too much, I don't want to get my hopes up. But, it's hard.  We want it so badly! I feel like so many people get their BFP's on their 5th month of TTC. I know 3 girls for sure, and read about countless others. Please let me be one of them!


  1. I hope this your cycle! We had a early OPK on cd11 last month and it worked for us :) maybe it's good luck! I'm thinking about you!!!
