Coming at it from both sides…
Thanks to a post by Leah
over at Olive You
, I decided to go onto Amazon.com and buy some cheap OPKs. The onces you buy in the store are prohibitively
expensive, especially if you have ridiculously long cycles for me and the 10pk for $25 doesn’t exactly work for you. I just ordered
1 “Combo Pack 40 (LH) Ovulation Tests + 10 Early Detection (HCG) Pregnancy Test Strips”
…for $13.25, which seems like a much better deal. Who knows, maybe I’ll get a BFP this cycle without them, but if I don’t, then the next cycle, I figure that doing both BBT & OPKs can do nothing but increase my odds, right?!
I also read a post from Damn the Rabbits (they made it look so easy)
that really made me realize that there is likely more than one reason for my charts to look a little off, b/c in the spring I always
have allergies and hence often sleep with my mouth open, which, duh
, probably changes my temp in the mornings.
So yeah, here we go – this month we’re coming at it from both sides to see what happens! I also think it’s a good sign that this was my Amazon PayPhrase when I bought the OPKs. Maybe it meant baby showers? 🙂
In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy the summer weather and cold beers and realize that it’s good to be alive!
