My First OPK Test


Today is day 7 of my cycle. According to the chart that came with the Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test package, it recommended starting taking the tests based on the shortest cycle I have had in the past couple of month. Even when I was on birth control, my period didn't come like clock work. However, my cycle was always between 27 and 31 days, still within normal.

Well, I knew I today wasn't going to be a fertile, let alone in my peak fertility, day. But I'll follow the guidelines and try again tomorrow. I may have a bit more anxiety knowing that Brit and I will be out of town between July 31st and August 2nd, which is when I do believe I will be ovulating. 

It was definitely a bizarre and surreal moment peeing on a stick and having to wait the 5 minutes. My tummy is full of butterflies as we enter this next week leading up to hopefully a positive and successful insemination.
