Too Little Too Late

This morning, I had dildo cam date #4. I knew something was up when the tech asked me if I had any pain last night. Come to think of it, I did have some pain last night in my ovarian region. DH and I went to bed immediately after - just in case it was my egg.

Sure enough, it was. I got a postive OPK this morning and the u/s confirmed that I ovulated all on my own. So, no trigger shot for me.

I knew they should have just given it to me yesterday. But whining about this is a lost cause. We got in enough BD to make our chances promising and we'll probably go at it again tonight just as a precaution.

I'm just kinda glad to get this over with and see what happens in 2 weeks. Test date will be 11/28, unless AF decides to grace me with her presence.

My due date would be 8/8/08. That would certainly make things easy.

Oh dear. How disappointing. I'm so glad you realised what was happening though. Stranger things have happened!

The due date would be great. But then any due date would be right now :-)

Good luck! Sounds very promising indeed!

Oh and with regard to your last post: Acupuncture vet here!

I go twice a week to an acupuncutre clinic that specializes in fertility. I love it. It's $82 each time I go but it's well worth it (and keep in mind I'm in Canada and everything's more expensive up here). If you have any questions at all, feel free to email me at hilaryd23@mac.com

I'm sending lots of positive vibes for your stick bean to stick around for a while!

I wish docs listened to us a little bit more and recognized that we do know our bodies. Glad you felt those ovulation cramps and made the most of them!

Fingers crossed for you!

JJ said...

Oh I had visions of that due date being ours...my lucky number 8! I will pass that HOPE onto you=)

Leah said...

Well, not exactly the cycle you were picturing, but hopefully it will END like you want it to! I'll have my fingers crossed for the next 2 weeks. A due date of 8/8/08 is just crazy!

I am a big fan of acupuncture. I'll make some time this weekend to respond to that post in more detail.

Everything crossed for you, lighting candles, wishing on stars, praying, everything.

infertility just sucks said...

Ugh - this just makes me sick.

This is a perfect example of how you know yourself best and how having someone to advocate on your behalf could really make a difference in the outcome.

It's their burden to make us think they are making a good decision.

MAN. I am so pissed off for you.

Samantha said...

It's good you're in touch with your body and knew what to do!

Geohde said...

Oh dear.

I'm worried about the very same thing. Scan wednesday 12mm, not due till Monday for next one. Wanna take bets the same thing happens?

I'm meant to trigger, too, because of the LPD. Bastard new Re wouldn't give me the Rx without another scan, and I don't argue with my treating practitioners until I've met them at least twice.

I've been at this over two years, I know when to trigger fercryingoutloud!

Good luck with the tww,

I'm glad that you're so aware of your body and didn't miss that valuable opportunity!

Grad3 said...

Well, I am glad that you had the intuition to hear your body! That could have ben ugly!

Crossing all fingers for you hun!

Natalie said...

Oh for crying out loud..... I can't believe they screwed that up. >:(

I'm glad you guys DTD though so you still have a very good chance. Hugs.

Are eights lucky numbers? Maybe not globally, but I bet they would be if this is the one that leads to a full-term pregnancy.

Come on, eights!

Cindy Nguyen said...

I am rooting for you!! C'mon swimmers, do your thang!

lub said...

Lucky 8's. I hope this is it. Sounds good to me!

Baby Blankenship said...

I'm praying for you guys girl...all my crossables are crossed. Thinking of you always...

LeRoy Dissing said...

Pretty good chance everything happened when it was suppose to and while there are no guarentees, this could be a xmas to remember!

lady in waiting said...

That is annoying, but the fact that you O'ed on your own is a good sign, means you have nice healthy ovaries and probably a really good egg who couldn't wait to get out there! And no stupid "fake" HCG in your system so now you won't be wondering if your HPT's are a false +!!

Good luck! Wishing you the best.

As long as you get it in there somehow, it really doesn't have to be exact. And a natural surge is a good thing, really.
