I was expecting to see a peak reading on Friday. Everything about me felt like I was ovulating. All of the signs, EWCM, sore nipples, temperature dip that morning, and the general feeling that it is about to happen. I was somewhat surprised that morning then when the reading was only high. I removed the test stick from the monitor and noticed that the end of the stick was still dry. I then watched as the liquid moved across the stick. I can't think of any logical or scientific reason as to why this delay should have occurred, I can only assure you that it did. I took a photo of the stick, which did show a dark LH line, and wondered if this meant the monitor had missed my first peak day.
As I always get two peak days, I expected that I would get a peak the next day...
I still haven't had a peak, the monitor is still asking me to pee on a stick every day, and every day it says high. I had pretty much accepted the idea that I might not have ovulated this cycle, and been through all the emotions that go with that, accepting the fact that I am just too old for this game... and then yesterday, my chart on Fertility Friend gave me crosshairs! It says I ovulated on Saturday and that I am now 5 dpo. That makes sense with what I thought originally, I usually O on the night of the first peak day - so maybe I am in with a chance. My graph looks good when compared to other graphs. Our timing was good if I did ovulate.
What do you think?
So, I'm waiting again. Test official test date is next Saturday, 25th May - we'll see if I hold out that long!
You might also remember that I had an appointment booked with my GP for last Thursday too. The update on that is that I had a bug and was actually vomiting that morning so I had to cancel. The next available appointment was 22nd May, so I figured I might as well and see what the outcome of this cycle is before I re-book.
