A day in the life of my ovaries...........


Yes children.....these are my actual
ovulation peesticks!!!! Don't ya love it!!!!
There is nothing QUITE like sharing a picture of the insanity that happens during my "fertile time"

As you can see, I am starting to develop quite a nice progression. For all you ovulation test novices out there, let me explain how these work.
Each strip when dipped in urine, detects Lutenizing hormone (LH) Women typically have a little of this hormone in their urine at all times.
As ovulation approaches, women will get what is known as an "LH Surge". This is a big increase in the LH level in their urine. This then triggers the ovulation process and within 24-36hrs, the egg will be released. A positive result on these tests is when both lines are the same color or the test line (left one) is darker than the control line (right one).
As you can see on my tests, I am not quite there yet. I am betting that the next day or two will be my positive result. Just in time for "TURKEY DAY" - Woohoo!!!!!

Today was quite a long day at work as I am still catching up from having missed last week.
The office is in the middle of Budget time as well so it has been really hectic and crazy around the office. I am hoping for a much more quiet day tomorrow as a lot of the staff will be off early for the holiday. I seem to get more work done that way.

For those of you who keep up with my parents......Dad had a bit of a set-back last night. He ended up back at the ER for the kidney stones. He started having more pain. Luckily they were able to medicate him and give him loads of IV fluids to help move things through. His urologist basically said to expect a few bouts of this because he has several stones still to pass.
It sucks but hopefully the added fluids will help flush out those nasty buggers! He is home this evening and resting comfortably. Mom is doing the most awesome job of taking care of him. I just wish I could do something to help her catch up! (LOVE YA MOM!)

So we had some more hideous wet snow today which I absolutely hate! It is a big wet mess outside. The only upside to the crappy weather outside is that it makes Jim and I want to snuggle under the covers even more! (Wink, Wink, Nudge, Nudge!)

Well.....The Cavs game is on at 7:30pm and if I want to sneak in a "killer baby dance" with Jim...I need to get off the computer now! Catch up with ya'll soon! HUGS
