No coffee this morning. Not more than a sip of water from 9am-1:30pm. At 1:19, I trotted down to the bathroom with hope that I would finally see a 2nd pink line....it is almost impossible not to look at those damn tests every 30 seconds--mine clearly states I can have results show up to the 10 minute marker--thats a LOT of seconds!
Nothing at first....then a trick on the eye...then some pink...and more pink. Holy crap I didn't miss it this month! I was getting very nervous ladies and gents--my lowest temp according to BBT was on C.D. 9--that's WAY early for me. That panic that set in early this week kept growing, as I passed each day with no 2nd pink line. I had tested as usual since C.D. 11....and as of last night, I was pretty bummed. Have I mentioned how much I love my Dr's office? They called me yesterday as a "reminder" that I should be testing to watch for my "egg drop"....at the time I was pretty annoyed with the call since I was already on pins and needles...but it was very nice of them to treat me so delicately...much appreciated. So I called my very kind nurse this afternoon after I saw that 2nd line--it wasn't "as dark as the control line" as most tests tell you, but it was darn close! I decided to call Ms. Kind Nurse and just ask her if I should wait and test again tomorrow....but to my delight, they take that as a yes, you are about to "egg drop" so come on down!
We head to the hospital tomorrow at 10--so convenient this first round for us in on a Saturday...that is a big help--eases our fears, and puts less of a time crunch on us. Dr. D will not be the one doing the IUI, but another doc in the practice who I have heard good things about-hope she is gentle! Let's all hope Mook's boys feel like swimming some laps tomorrow!!
I have promised some of you all who were interested, the names of the supplements Mook is on--I can in no way promise that these work yet, since we won't really know until the 3rd romance in a cup in May (we may get a slight idea tomorrow). But regardless, I feel it's worth a shot! Supplements: Carn.itine Syn.ergy 500mg, Meta.bolic Syn.ergy, Arg.inine 750mg, Kr.ill Oil, and Zin.c Supreme. Hope that helps!
Thanks for all the positive thoughts and comments...I am still going to ask tomorrow if it will be better for me to have monitored cycles to make sure we catch "the" day in a timely manner!
Keep fingers, toes, eyes, etc. crossed for us! =)
