Today is cycle day 10. I ran to the Dollar Tree to get some things for Frick’s birthday celebration this weekend and decided to pick up a bunch of OPKs (ovulation predictor kits for the uninitiated).
I thought I better start testing today. Got home about 1:00 and whipped one of those babies out.
No big deal. It’s only day ten. I don’t expect a surge for a week but I always start testing early just so I don’t miss it.
I have to admit that whenever I use an OPK, I pretend it’s a pregnancy test just so I can imagine what it would be like to have those two pink lines show up. Kind of pathetic.
Here’s my chart so far. I have been waking and sleeping fitfully in the mornings so my temps were higher than what I am used to. I would take my temp at 5:30 every morning because that’s when K’s alarm went off. Well, by then, I would have woken up, fallen back asleep and only have gotten about an hour of sleep. I just started taking my temp when I wake up after four hours of sleep no matter what time it is. That explains the sharp drop in temps the last few days.
Have a great day everyone.
