Yes, every day of the Triduum =) Made for a very...unique...Easter!
Between ultrasound #4 and #5 (Holy Saturday a.m. to Easter Monday p.m.) a sizable follicle (I think 2.6 cm?) pretty much disappeared, so it appears that I ovulated. I'm very relieved about that! I wasn't overly surprised because my cycles are a normal 28-day-ish length, and this cycle all my chartable signs made perfect sense with my ultrasounds, but it's still nice confirmation to have. (Although it does make me wonder, I'm ovulating...my husband checked out okay...my hormones are normal...what is the deal with not getting pregnant for almost 3 years??)
During the series, I prayed a LOT for those of you that are dealing with LUFs or other anovulatory issues - my heart was hurting for you, thinking of how devastating it must be to not get the "all clear" at the end of a series.
And yes, we did "use" the unusually specific knowledge we had of ovulation this cycle! As usual, I'm trying not to get my hopes up, trying not to analyze every little twinge and "symptom," and trying to be at peace about whatever happens this time around. We did our part, anyway!
Next up in medical steps: laparoscopic surgery, June 20. Until then, I'm off the hook medically, which is a huge relief and a very needed "breather"!
Happy weekend to all!
