Raising a Blended Family


on May 14, 2011

Up until now, I’ve been the calm, rational one.  I’ve let Shorty freak out over the lack of +OPKs (today is CD15 and she has 28ish day cycles), and reassured her we will get our Smiley.

We didn’t get a +OPK yesterday.  We tested three times (10am, 2pm, 6pm) and nothing.  Which wouldn’t be a big deal, I figured we may get it today instead.  (TMI alert).  Her CM isn’t completely EW, still watery, and cervix isn’t all the way open yet, so I figured we’d be fine to wait and test the OPKs again today.

…except this morning Shorty’s temp spiked.  It’s only .1 degree above the highest temp this cycle, but considering her temps have been a good .4-.5 degree lower for the past 3-5 days… I’m definitely scared now. Did we miss ovulation? Maybe we missed ovulation. HOW COULD WE MISS ovulation, she’s been testing 3 times a day?!?!?!

I will cry if her temp stays high, and we will be left with two freakin vials of sperm we can’t use.  I’m tempted to insem with one of them right. now. and keep the other one back to see if we do indeed ever get our smiley.  Anyone have any suggestions?  The newbie TTCers are freakin’ out over here. 😦

    that’s totally crazymaking. i was sure each month that my OPK would never come. i wish there was a hard and fast rule, but i would say to rely on the other signs — if ye olde cervix isn’t open and there’s not a load of EWCM, you’re prob not in the sweet spot. if you *have* missed the O, you can always send the sperm back for storage. i know, opposite of what you want to do with it, but better than wasting liquid gold. hoping all the other signs line up…sending smiley thoughts…
