Update: this entire post is actually redundant because I got my positive opk an hour after posting this. Hah! Oh what endless fun ttc is.
I bought a pack of opks.
Of course I did. You all know I can’t just leave this to fate and I have to have some semblance of control over something because I am a control freak with OCD tendencies.
I can’t control my eggs, but I sure as hell can control knowing when they’re coming 😉
Anyway, I bought a pack of opks.
And I’m pretty sure I ovulated this morning (I get very distinct pain).
But I haven’t had a single positive opk in the last 3 days.
I’m an old hand at this game: two children, 6 losses, 22 months of TTC this time round (with a slight hiatus at the end of last year).
I get positive opks EVERY month. Without fail. I ovulate every month. Without fail.
I fully expect to see a temperature rise tomorrow or Monday morning at the latest. I am currently temping only for the days around ovulation just so I know it has occurred.
But my positive opk is missing.
It has to be the water I am drinking.
Since last November I’ve been guzzling around 2 litres a day as part of an ongoing incentive to be a healthier me.
And I think that all that water is diluting my LH so I can no longer detect it.
