Why do I take OPK’s? Why?
So why, when I had a plan to trigger in the morning and, ahem, come together with my husband tonight, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, why did I OPK this morning?
Apparently, so I could get a blaringly positive OPK and second guess my plans all day/cycle/life long. And possibly try to attack Chief in his sleep this morning. Which was unsuccessful.
Also, WHY did I stash another one in my purse to take this afternoon?
Let’s look at this rationally:
EVEN IF I’m having an LH surge RIGHT NOW that is legitimately going to lead to ovulation, it doesn’t mean I’m ovulating right now. In fact it means the opposite. Meaning that I still have time to, ahem, get some action tonight and probably cover my bases.
And I probably SHOULDN’T move my trigger shot up from tomorrow morning to tonight-right? Quite honestly the thing that would make me feel the best at this point is if I take another OPK tomorrow with FMU like I did today and have it be positive, because that will just prove that my body is insane and that I should carry on as normal. If it’s negative, well, that’s a whole different story.
The other thing is that I took an OPK three days ago (meaning CD 8-because I’m crazy) and it had a strong line but didn’t look positive, so I chunked it. Well I dug it out of the trash today and it looked almost exactly like the one I took today. Positive. All just proving that my body can NOT be trusted when it comes to OPK’s. And I’m mentally unstable.
That being said, I will probably take the second OPK this afternoon anyway, it will probably show up negative, and I will probably proceed to panic that I’ve missed my window.
Now would be the time to bring in the crisis negotiators.
