The other good news is that I've been charting for 2 months now and have a very clear three-day pattern: opk positive; temp dip with clear "highly fertile" signs into the afternoon (can't feel O, sadly); sharp temp spike. So I'm almost certainly ovulating on the second day...right? I should do my IUI then, right?
All great news! So glad that you're getting the KD/clinic freak-out thing all sorted out!
Regarding IUI timing, I don't know a whole lot about that... as far as how many hours past the surge it should be. I know others on here have useful info, though!

Wish we could have done one more insem the day before but I'm happy with the one and with a very first chance ever at being pregnant. Now onto the waiting!
YAY for TWW buddies!!!
that you had fantastic timing and that the spermies met up with the egg!!!! Now begins the longest 14-ish days EVER (how long is your usual LP?)mkpgoddess
- O. M. G. I would have been LIVID!!!! I'm glad that you're sorting it all out though, and that your body is waiting for O. Hopefully the stars will align and everything will work out PERFECTLY!AFM
- thanks for all the encouraging words about timing, everyone! So, as far as what I said about it being POSSIBLE that I O'ed early... I pinned this cycle at CD 15 (when FF may give me my CHs, even though I usually O on CD17) w/ O of my pregnant chart
, and they are curiously similar pre-O! Definitely different pattern than other charts pre-O!
Just something to keep my hope alive and obsess over while I wait for my CHs! Lol.
ALSO, I had a premonition this morning (I dont' usually buy into such things, but this was too weird!). I am prefacing it with the fact that we plan to name a girl baby Sophie (after DP's grandmother):
1 - when I checked my inbox this morning, there was an offer from Mothering for a free "Sophie the Giraffe" if you ordered a subscription to Mothering Magazine using the promo code provided.
2 - I was "resting my eyes" on the bus this morning, and when I opened them, we were passing by a cafe or salon or something near my house called "Sophie's."
couldn't ignore the premonitions, so I ordered a Mothering subscription to get the giraffe. Hahaha. I'm such a nut.
I probably have totally just jinxed the hell outta myself just from posting this. LOL.
