Because without it, I'd be pulling my hair out!
On the cycle of intense treatment with Dr. Toth, I peak'd late at CD 20. Probably the physical stress.
The first cycle of oral antibiotics, I peak'd at CD 16. And this is pretty much the norm without ovulation inducers, after the ovarian wedge resection.
So I started showing Peak type mucus on CD 10 this cycle. Since Dr. Toth only wants us to use 2 days for TTC each cycle, we really had to choose wisely. I was guess-timating that I'd Peak around CD 16 again. But as DH pointed out, maybe we weren't starting "early" enough. (I think he was just anxious to get going after a 3 month hiatus!) So we decided to select last night, CD 13. My OPK's test line was also very close in color to the control line, but with PCOS, I am used to the LH fluctuating back and forth.
Now this morning I woke up, and have ever-so-slightly sore bbs. But even more undeniable is the fluid-retention feeling in my lower pelvic area. I think I O'd already!! It must have been this morning. So we will select today again, and hopefully these were the 2 best days we could have chosen. (In other news, every day of peak mucus so far has been 10KL. NOT gummy. Woo Hoo!!)
There would have been NO way for me to predict I'd O this early ON MY OWN without O meds and even without Metformin!! I can't believe it! I'm just so glad that I am charting Creighton, because maybe, just maybe, those white baby stamps were not just decoration this month- but maybe they really DO mean fertility :)
DH and I had a few hours by ourselves with Grandma yesterday morning. We drove down and decided to do Mass at the chapel there. Before that, we said a Divine Mercy Chaplet with her (she listened), which was really nice. We didn't talk about any of our fertility stuff- I already had a chance to speak with her about that. We just enjoy being with her to help her make this transition. Any time she does get pain, she clutches at her heart and says, "Oh God. I want to see my Jesus. I want to see my Jesus." She is ready. It is a beautiful thing.
If you'll remember us all in your prayers, I'd really appreciate it!
