Ovulate - Mission Possible

You know how bloggers find out they're pregnant and then disappear for awhile because they can't think of anything else to blog about and they're not ready to tell the blogosphere about their pregnancies?

Well that's not what happened to me.

I'm not pregnant.

Or...if I am I won't know it for a few weeks.

I've just been really busy NOT ovulating.

But finally, FINALLY CD35 and I THINK I may have finally ovulated 2 days ago.

Oh how I hate these long cycles!

To think that "normal" women would have ovulated and had a period or found out they're pregnant already by now.  28 day cycles???  Who has those?  The rate this one is going if I did in fact ovulate it would mean a 48 day cycle.

If I'm not pregnant I'm going to cry, I have to wait 48 days each and every time?!

Anyway, right around CD28 I started to lose my shit, got all depressed and pissy, and then CD29 gobs and gobs of EWCM showed up.  I took like a thousand OPKs and while I'm pretty sure the darkest one of them isn't officially a positive, it was close enough for me as I've only ever had one positive OPK and it was a Clomid cycle.  I don't think OPKs like my fucked up PCOS hormones.

Jett was made with a negative OPK.

What do you think?

Did I get a Positive?

I peed on a digital one at some point in there but it was a negative as well.  But at least one of those looks like it's the same color as the test line right?

The next day all the EWCM went away and the line lightened, so even if I didn't ovulate something was ALMOST about to happen and...there's hope I guess. 

More proof that I only ovulate immediately proceeding a pregnancy.

Anyway, this morning FertilityFriend finally concurred that I did in fact ovulate, it's more waiting.

My husband was away for the vast majority of this cycle but conveniently was around for the exact 2 days that my EWCM showed up and as you can see, things were ahem...well timed.

Everyone cross your fingers for me that those temps stay up and this isn't a "fake" ovulation!!!


  1. That looks pretty positive to me! And, Oh the rat race that is PCOS.

  2. Damn PCOS cycles! Looks promising to me!!!!

  3. Ugh, don't get me started on Pcos cycles. I do see a positive! So glad your hubby was around for the prime time. Good luck!

  4. I can relate with you right now I've been checking my ovulation and all I'm getting are negatives in my OPK's and I'm on clomid that's the sad part :'(

  5. Good luck! All looks promising!

  6. YAY for ovulating!! I didn't O until CD36 on the cycle that conceived Harvey. FX for you that this is it!!

  7. Did you pee on all those the same day? I get like no line most days and one day I had a really light line but definitely not a + line. Now I'm worried that if I'm only peeing on one stick a day I'm missing the +.

    1. No Kenzie, it was one a day, starting when the EWCM showed up.

    2. I can't believe there is so much variety in one day! And curse the freakin irregular cycles! In college I loved having like 4 periods a year...little did I know it would suck in the future!

  8. We are so similar! I am on CD 36 and finally got a positive OPK today!!! Last cycle it was CD 38, so ridiculous. Thinking about you!!!
