No LH Surging

No LH surge this morning :-(. Still not panicking, but a little concerned – today is day 14.

But wait! As I’m writing this, I’m calculating in my head…perhaps today is day 13, not 14…dammit…I need my calendar!

I saved this post in draft to go double check my calendar. It’s definitely day 14 today. Ok…”breath”…I’m telling myself…”nothing to worry about just yet”….

Please cross all your fingers and your toes for me.

In other news, I’ve been taking an antibiotic since Sunday for my HSG test that was this last Monday. Saturday night is my last pill. I swear it’s increasing my appetite and making me gain weight! Does anyone know whether this is a side effect? I’ve gained about 3 lbs in the past week and this while working out and sticking to a low carb diet. The same game plan that’s previously helped me lose 35 lbs. And now suddenly I’m gaining? Something’s up. Not happy about this :-(. That’s another thing adding to my worry. I have to be a maximum BMI of 43, otherwise they won’t do the insemination. And with scale variations to account for and to give myself wiggle room, I really cannot afford to gain any more.

Working myself into more worry….gonna stop writing now.

Please cross all fingers and all toes and anything else you can cross. I need all the good luck I can get. Thanks.

    Don’t stress! From what understand, very few women ovulate at *exactly* day 14 anyway. I think the ovulation tests don’t even show it until after you’ve ovulated, which is when the hormones register. Unless they’ve given you a much fancier test that I’m unfamiliar with.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!

      Thanks Amanda. Actually LH shows *before* ovulation. It signals that ovulation is about to occur.

      I just read online that mid-afternoon is better to test as the body releases LH in the morning. That then triggered my memory that Shady Grove said to test mid-afternoon. So I’ll try again this afternoon.

        Good to know. I know I was reading about those store bought ovulation tests and deciding whether to splurge on those. It said they only register after the fact, so I didn’t bother and kept with charting (which I have flaked on, to be honest). Maybe it was a different hormone or the book I read was just wrong.
