Meet My Ovaries: Cheech and Chong

April 20th, 2011.  CD25.

I haven’t really named my ovaries, of course, but I assume that they must be friends of Mary Jane since they conveniently chose today–4/20, famous for being the unofficial pot smoker’s Christmas–to function properly.

I finally got a positive OPK late last night, and again early this morning.

Tonight?  Negative.

I guess that’s that then, isn’t it?

I’m expecting a temp spike tomorrow to confirm ovulation, of course, but I feel safely comfortable saying that I am now officially in the Two Week Ten Day Wait.

Also, I just wanted to point out that infertility is ruining Easter for me.  All of the egg imagery is making me bitter, and not even fondant-filled chocolate eggs are making it better.  And I can no longer eat a Peep because they make me think of squishy little pre-babies, which is just tragic and demented.

Thanks a bunch, infertility, for taking candy away from me too.  Why don’t you go ahead and ruin oxygen next?  You suck.

Pass the jelly beans.

      It’s so nice to know that we all have each other, even through the crazy, right? 😉

    hey, that’s great news!
    I am in my 10 day wait, too
    only I decided not to pee on the stick after 10 days but to wait for the clinic test (which is 14 days after the ovulation)

    let’s hope this is it!

    PS my cycles – when I still used to have my own cycles – were 35-40 days long. Which means my ovulations happened about CD25, like yours. So cheer up – nothing wrong with a longer cycle! It probably means you have a thicker layer of lining in you womb which is good for implantation!

      Fingers crossed for you in your Ten Day Wait!! May it be MUCH longer than ten days for you! 🙂

      I hope you’re right about the longer cycle meaning a thicker lining… that would be a fantastic side-effect, lol!
