CD1, the appetizer cycle

AF finally arrived today. I am super happy because this means I can begin BC pills for two weeks then start stimming for IVF!

Weird thing, though. Are you ready for this?

I was due for AF last Wednesday, but no go. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, nothing. So I peed on two sticks on Saturday evening: negative on pregnancy, but I got a smiley face for the ovulation one. WTF? I peed again Sunday morning and both were negative. I mean, WTF? Why would the ovulation prediction test be positive? Has anyone ever had this happen to them?

This is about the only time I'll ever say this:

WOOHOOO for AF!! :) Let's get this party started and get you on that BFP train!! Nice of her to take her sweet time, though, and to let you think that maybe it happened without IVF. Such a cold-hearted beyotch. ;)

As for the sticks.... I recall reading that we almost always have at least some LH in our systems, and since the OPK is a snapshot of what's going on at that instant, maybe you just had a little extra LH at that moment.

I've done OPKs in the 2ww and gotten positives, too. It is disconcerting.

Today is CD 1 for me too- we are doing and FSH/IUI, so we'll be kind of cyling together!

I have never had a positive OPK during any other part of my cycle...I have heard that sometimes they are positive when your pregnant....but that doesn't make sense seeing how your HPT was negative. Color me confused.

Very weird about the pee sticks - no clue! But glad you are starting this cycle - nice to move forward! I took my last birth control pills today, and am moving forward with stimming by the end of this week (hopefully), so we'll be very close!!!
