So That's What Positive Looks Like
I knew my blood work indicated I was surging as of this morning so I didn't need to use an opk but since I've used at least 70 of these stupid tests and have never seen a clear positive I couldn't resist. Eureka! A test line that is darker than the control line! Not just a line that's maybe sorta the same darkness but a slightly different color. It looks like I finally may ovulate...just in time for tomorrow's IUI.
And, since it was a day of firsts I figured I may as well take a gander at my very first positive pregnancy test...albeit a fake one. Due to the hcg trigger I took this morning, any pregnancy test I take for the next ten days should come back positive...even before I actually get pregnant. It was so cool pretending it was the real deal.
Some women apparently "test out their trigger" which means they take a pregnancy test every day after the trigger so they can tell when it's out of their system. I probably won't do that. Maybe I'll test again in 9 days because it's supposed to be gone by day 10. And then I want to start testing for the BFP 10 days after the IUI so that would be 11 days after the trigger shot.
So, Friday, April 20th it is. I already have fun out of town plans for that night. Here's hoping I have something to celebrate.
