Actually, now that I think about it, I have two.
The first is that I dropped the ball on the photo-a-day thing while we were out of town. If I had done it, it would probably have hypothetically been the same picture of my hotel room every day. So I guess I'm saving you some boredom.
I started again though, so don't worry :)
Confession number two.
I bought an ovulation kit.
I never, ever, ever thought I would, but I did.
We've been trying now for about eight months with no luck.
Last time I got pregnant, it happened RIGHT away...which makes eight months with no luck seem...weird. Is there something wrong with me now?
So, anyway, I know it's too early to go to a fertility doctor or something. And, quite frankly, I can't see going to a fertility doctor unless it had been like two years (but I guess we'll see if I still feel that way if another six months goes by with no luck).
And maybe it is still too early to be concerned, too...
...but I am impatient...
...and a bit concerned...
...and the longer it takes, the more impatient I become...
...and the more impatient I become, the more concerned I become when nothing happens.
So, anyway, a few days ago, the hubs and I were joking about buying an ovulation kit.
And then I went to Target on a completely unrelated mission.
But when I got there, I thought I'd just look at ovulation kits. You know, to see if one was better than another or something so that I would know which one to buy if it did come down to that.
But when I got to that aisle, there was a major, intense sale on a First Response ovulation kit.
And I just felt that it was the universe telling me to purchase it.
So I did.
Yesterday, I used it for the first time, and the very first test told me that I was having an LH surge...so I would be ovulating in 24-36 hours.
I figured it must be defective; there's no way that I would "pass" the first test! But I even had Brady look at it to make sure that I wasn't reading it wrong, and he confirmed that I was right. I passed it with flying colors. There was no doubt. The test line was WAY darker than the reference line.
I passed it this morning, too.
Is it weird to have it show that my LH is surging two days in a row?
Have any of you used these ovulation predictor kits, and, if so, do you have any advice or words of wisdom to offer me?
What do I do if it says I'm surging tomorrow, too??? Does that mean that I have a hormone issue? (I did a bit of research today and totally freaked myself out...they said that I'm defective if I passed the test for more than two days in a row...and I'm on route for that to happen! Yikes!).
So, any input would be helpful.
On a completely random note, as I write this, I am sitting by the ocean waiting for Brady to get back from a bike ride so we can go to dinner.
It's a beautiful day in Rockport, and I'm loving just hanging out outside.
I'm sitting next to this ice cream place, because they have free WiFi, and I wanted to do homework while I waited.
The door to the ice cream joint is open, though, so I can hear what's going on inside.
This chick just came in and told one of the employees (an old friend, apparently) that she has a new baby sister...
...who is named Leila :)
I started smiling so big, I must have looked like a crazy person.
It feels so good to have named my baby, to finally have something to call her, and to think of her when I hear someone use her name. *peaceful sigh*
