I really might have, what?

Happiest Friday, to you! I'm enjoying the beautiful blue skies before yucky storms set in over the weekend. If you don't know me in real life, I am petrified [yes, still at the age of 30] of storms. And being caught in a tornadic storm a few years ago, it's only made things worse. I guess I'm almost embarassed to admit this fear, but we all have ours. Just to say, this doesn't work well because my Jay loves storms. Go figure.

Today is cd15. I woke up early this morning to tinkle and noticed there was no twinging, cramping, zilch, nada - going on down there, especially following a rather active day. Could I have actually ovulated, on my own? I am not set to trigger until tomorrow but I feel nothing. When I was getting ready this morning, I still felt nothing. There was a bit of CM during my early morning potty trip, but none now. I called my RE first thing and requested an u/s to see if indeed, I did ovulate. They called and had me run over for a bloodtest for more accuracy. I should know the test results this afternoon. Should I be happy I [may have] actually O'd on my own or bummed that we might not get to do our IUI cycle? I will not borrow worry; I will update as soon as I get the call.

It saddens me that so many other couples have to experience the IF journey. I am so thankful that we have such a wonderful support system through blogging. All lovely comments give me so much hope and encouragement; so thank you.

Have a beautiful weekend. I can't wait to catch up on reading your blogs. Wishing all success in weekend IUI cycles and positive results to those waiting.

*update: I didn't O on my own....trigger is scheduled for tomorrow night with my IUI Monday morning.


  1. Sending you lots of vibes for a natural O of your own!

    Happy ICLW!

  2. Thank you Miriam. I just got the call from my Dr and I didn't O on my own. So, we are still on to trigger....thanks for your sweet vibes :)

  3. I hope this trigger leads to your BFP!

    About the storms I am like your husband I love them. I sleep the most sound when it is lightning and thundering outside.

  4. Crossing my fingers that this is it!

    I loooove storms. I'm sorry they scare you. :/

  5. Hey Nikki
    Thanks so much for coming to my blog and leaving all your lovely comments :)
    Hope the trigger really helps with this cycle, good luck with the IUI!
    To answer your question-I had 3 follies, all good sizes.
    Looking forward to getting to know you :)

  6. Hey! We must live semi-close because we're going to get bad storms today too. I live just outside of Chattanooga. Where are you? Good luck on Monday!!!!

  7. Good luck with this cycle. I also love this community, even though I'm no longer TTC or anything of that nature at the moment (divorce).

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. ICLW

  8. Good luck with this cycle!


  9. I agree, it's so helpful to meet other IF'ers through our blogs! I'm not sure what I'd do without all of you ladies! Best of luck with your IUI :)

  10. I hope the storm didn't end up being too bad. Good luck this cycle!
