Spontaneous Ovulation

So to let everyone know what happened at my appointment. I was supposed to go in for a PCT, u/s and a trigger shot on Sunday at 10:30am. The nurse on Friday told us to have sex in the early morning or late Saturday night. Ray and I went to see Prince Caspian on Saturday and got back later than I thought and just fell right asleep, after spending the previous few days on the house we were both beat. So we decided to have sex on Sunday morning about 2/ 2.5 hours before the appointment. I figured that was okay.

At the appointment, the RE does the PCT and then goes to do the u/s and tells me "well it looks like you ovulated yesterday (Saturday) so no need for the trigger" I was like "oh no" and she said that she thought that the timing was good but I think because she thought we had sex on Friday night, not on Saturday morning. We also had sex on Thursday night so we are sorta covered, I guess. The timing is not wonderful but it's not terrible either. Needless to say I wish we had gotten in another time between Thursday and Sunday early morning. I am just stunned though how did my follie go from 17mm to 22mm in 2 days?I just knew this was going to happen.

Normally I would be thrilled about it but considering that we didn't have sex on Saturday night I think we missed our timing again . I am supposed to go for a progesterone test on Friday. She said the level needs to be 15 or better...at least I don't have to keep taking HPTs to see if the trigger is out right??I have to say though overall I am disappointed. The whole point of the monitored cycle was so that we didn't mess up the timing and we did it anyway because my body wants to do what it wants, like before only now it's doing the right thing just at the wrong time. FIGURES! So I guess I am in the 2ww although I am expecting nothing but a visit from deary AF at the end of it.

We'll see what the progesterone levels yield. I'll make my decision to take an HPT on that.

Aw, our darn bodies just insist upon not cooperating with us huh?? Sorry things were not 100% "timed" but YEAH for spontaneous Ovulation!!!! What a feat that was in itself!!! :-) Here's to hoping AF STAYS AWAY for at least 10 months!!!!!

BTW, you certainly still can POAS every single day if you like but instead of watching the trigger leave your system you can watch the HCG double in your body...

Well, I guess the timing wasn't ideal but sperm can hang out in there a few days, just waiting around until there's an egg to meet up with. Soo...it may not be as bad as you think.

I will keep thinking good thoughts for you and Ray!!

Gotta love our bodies, huh? Just when you want them to work, they don't! I hope that everything works out for you and you get preggo this time! Happy thoughts!

Don't count yourself out yet girl! Just don't go wasting lots of money on HPT's. Try to wait as long as possible before checking and I'm wishing you lots of luck = )
