Many women document the stages of their pregnancy from the time they test positive with a bun in the oven. I've decided to start sooner than that. Here is the story of me, from TTC (trying to conceive) to delivery, and possibly beyond. Who knows...blogging may be obsolete by then.
A year and a half into our marriage, my husband and I decided "it's time," and I stopped taking the pill at the end of January and purchased a Babyprep ovulation test kit. The test comes with 7 days worth of test strips. They test for a surge in the Luteinizing Hormone (LH) that occurs just before ovulation.
By my 6th day of testing, I was starting to think that maybe I wouldn't ovulate normally because I had just come off the pill, when - SCORE! - the LH was flowing and ovulation was approaching. The picture below shows my tests from 2/10/10 on top (negative) and 2/11/10 on the bottom (positive).
The ovulation kit is supposed to test positive 24-48 hours before ovulation. Since I took it at 7:00 this morning, I would guess that I will ovulate some time tomorrow. Wish me luck!
