Here we are again with the OPKs, on a weekend, confused. S still feels very bloated and full (even painful), and we just got our ‘PEAK’ TODAY, on CD16. Yesterday looked like a PEAK, initially, but the monitor did not read it as such. There was an LH line, but the estrogen line was still there (meaning estrogen had not gone up significantly yet – which happens before the LH surge.) The other OPKs looked almost kinda positive, so we left WTFs house last night confident that she did in fact surge (sometimes in the past her surges look like this…kinda less spectacular than one would expect), and would ovulate today, probably in the morning. This would have been perfect because our last insem was lat night at like 8:30pm. But today she got a big “PEAK” on the monitor and all the OPKs were undeniably dark and positive. Plus, S feels very bloated and pained still in the ovary area, so we think she has not ovulated yet.
Now, S must bother WTF and RM again, make a 4 hour drive and miss our date night to go get more sperm. I have only seen her for an hour or two every night because I was up staying with WTF and she was coming and going every night because she had to go to work every day.
So I called WTF to see if S can come by again tonight, but she was not home. And we should have triggered. But last time (when it WORKED) she ovulated on CD 15, all neat and tidy – no shot. This time it will likely be CD17. Is that weird? Are the eggs going to be all overdeveloped and tough? Is that kind of delay normal?? Balls. She normally ovulated anywhere from Cd14 to CD16 (usually on CD15), so I guess it is only a 2 day delay, but it feels big, and so much is riding on this try and I just feel so out of control, and tired. This shit is work.
