l.i.b.e.r.a.t.i.o.n. theory

love, life, and the pursuit of liberation

a smiley already!

Warning ahead. There’s going to be a LOT of ttc talk in the coming days (months) so brace yourself.

I’ve been instructed to do my opks daily so that my RE can monitory my ovulation days. According to most OPK directions, you’re supposed to use FMU (first morning urine) and wait until the second line is as dark as the reference line. Because I’ve been around the e-block a few times, I know that it’s best to retest throughout the day, because the hormone in your urine builds up throughout the day or that you may surge later in the day. Since the egg is only good for about 24 hours, it’s important to get the timing as close as possible because frozen sperm doesn’t last as long as fresh.

So over the past 3 days, my OPK has been getting darker and this mornings was as pretty close as I thought it would get. I took the digital OPK this afternoon and got my smiley already! I need to call the RE to see if their other office is open today or if I should just go in first thing in the morning. Dildo cam (or transvaginal ultrasound if you want to be technical about it), here I come!

I’m realizing that I need to update my acronym list.
