Gots me some follicles!

Okay, so this wasn't precisely how I was expecting things to go. I really don't want to mess up and start the progesterone and baby aspirin too late, so I'm concerned about when I ovulate. I took your advice and called the doctor yesterday (day 15) and said that the OPK wasn't positive yet. They confirmed the date of my LMP and confirmed that my schedule is usually around 28 days (it is) and said, "can you come in for an ultrasound?" Hells yeah, I can! (Nothing I like better than the ultrasound wand (a.k.a. dildo-cam). The fact that they put all that KY sh*t and the condom on it really is the cherry on top, isn't it?

So they checked my follicles and I have one that's 23mm, so the ultrasound tech said "you'll probably ovulate any minute." But I haven't yet. That means two things: 1. T is a walking around with a friggin' perma-grin on his face, because this is the most s.ex he's had in a long while and 2. I have to go back to Tar.get to buy more of those blasted OPKs. (Thanks again to everyone for your input about the OPKs since I really still don't know what I'm doing.)

So I'll just be here, peeing on more sticks, waiting for my test line to be DARKER than my control line. (Oh, and I've had to start taking the test first thing when I get up, which my doctor okayed, because drinking coffee, a diuretic, at 7:30 am and then waiting 4 hours to pee do NOT mix.)

Oh, the dildo-cam or as I have hearnd it referred to as the weanie wand.

I do remember that little guy when I wasn't pregnant enough to have on the belly U/S.

That's good that you called your doctor and got some reassurance.

Good luck with everything!!!

Yay on the follicle! Whoo hoo! Come on baby!

Your doc said only do baby aspirin after ovulation? I hadn't heard that, I take it all the time....

Oh, the dildo cam. Such are the joys, right?

I'm glad you checked with your doctor and I hope the Big O is on its way now!!!

Don't you wonder how we always have pee to spare?
