Hey! Sorry it’s been a few weeks since I’ve given an update!! With it being the holiday season I have just been really busy. I have been getting overtime at work and my mom came to visit so I have just been neglecting my blog and vlog. You didn’t miss much since I didn’t really have any updates though.
I am back at it though and for my first post after my “hiatus” I have an awesome update!! I actually FOR SURE had my LH surge today!!! Can you tell I’m excited?! You would think I had a positive pregnancy test. LOL. Even though I haven’t been updating on here, I started temping and have still been using my OPKs. Yesterday I had a really dark line on my Wonfo test strip but I did it pretty late at night so I didn’t use my digital test as a backup. Today my line was as dark as the control line so I made sure I was prepared to do the Clear Blue Digital Ovulation test stick as well. Low and behold, I got a smiley…freakin’ finally! After months of crazy cycles and not being able to detect ovulation, I am able to know that I am for sure ovulating. My husband and I have been BDing and I know sperm can live for a few days so I am really praying and hoping that we had good timing this month. So please keep your fingers crossed for me and send lots of baby dust!!
I’ll be back on track with posting as well and will probably post a video tomorrow too since I’m feeling pretty darn awesome. The 2WW is going to be the longest wait ever!
Here’s a picture of the smiley…in all its glory:
It’s CD 31 and I think I may have finally had my LH surge!! I’m not for sure because the test line was still lighter than the control line…it’s just so close though. I ran out of my ClearBlue digital tests a couple of days ago so I couldn’t test with those as my backup. Of course the days where I actually might be ovulating I run out of my tests. Such is my luck! Yesterday and today were the darkest lines I have seen though so I am thinking that these days may have been my best chances to get pregnant. I am going to keep testing with my OPKs and see if I get a no doubt positive though up until AF shows up.
That brings me to my cycle day length. I am thinking I must still be on an irregular cycle because if I had a 28-day cycle then AF would’ve shown up at the beginning of this week. I did take a pregnancy test today though since there was no sign of the “lovely” lady. It was negative. A BFN! I kind of expected this since my OPKS have been looking pretty close to positive but I just couldn’t help but take a test. My POAS addict ladies will understand! My last cycle was over 60 days though because I started on September 1st and then my next period didn’t happen until November 3rd. I was really hoping that this cycle would go back to a regular one but it’s seeming very unlikely. I don’t know if I should expect AF next week or the week after so I’ll probably take another pregnancy test next week. I’m still hoping we get lucky and conceive on this cycle! I have a vlog up on my YouTube channel if you want to check that out too.
Here are my test strips from the last three cycle days
