We are on day 15 of a cycle that is usually 27 days, sometimes 28.
Using Clearblue Easy and Rite Aid OPKs.
Day 13 had some halfway to + OPKs
no Fertile Mucus
this is the day we usually get a +OPK, but did not this time
day 14 had some halfway to + OPKs
at night some creamy mucus and wet vaginal sensation
Today day 15
some eggwhite (this usually happens day of ovulation, sometimes day after)
diarrhea, crampy feelings
wet vag sensation
sweaty last night (usually happens day of + OPK, but + does not come until nighttime sometimes)
even fainter OPKs than yesterday, barely there (tested in morning and at noon today)
She never has a complete positive, the line is always a little less dark than the control, but we have had none that even looked like this.
I wonder if we should do an IUI today or a vag insemination NOW, and an IUI tonight or tomorrow??? Maybe she did not/will not ovulate ? But we have EWFM (eggwhite cervical fluid) today. I think this is a good sign that she is ovulating today. We are very confused about the OPKs getting fainter. All the wet vag sensation and EWFM that she is feeling today usually comes day of + OPK and day of ovulate. So what’s going on??? Could we have missed her surge? She POAS ever 4 hours since day 13 but was drinking lots of grapefruit juice!! It could have been diluted.
My feeling is that she is ovulating today. Maybe right now, maybe last night or tonight?
So I tried to schedule an IUI.
But our doc is attending a VBAC, and the woman is 7 cm as of 3:00, so she may not be able to do the insem until 9 or 10 pm tonight. I think we have decided it is worth it, but are feeling confused.
S is feeling really bad, like everything is conspiring against her getting pregnant. And she doesn’t think she has the stamina to do this many more times.
I don’t know what to think. About continuing, about this cycle, about frozen sperm, about money, about OPKs, about LH surges, about IUIs.
Oh and did I mention it is our 5 year wedding anniversary? We have been together for 11 1/2 years. What a day.
Are we doing the right thing?????
