Ovulating twice in one cycle?!

Something strange is happening; I got a positive ovulation test on the 17th and 18th and a negative on the 19th and 20th but another positive on the 21st and 22nd. On the 20th my temperature dipped to 97.44 and spiked to 97.88 on the 21st . This is the second time this cycle my temperature dipped and spiked. I'm not sure if I ovulated around my first spiked or the second time my temperature dipped and spiked. I'm so confused! I'm hoping that the reason I'm getting positive opks is because I'm pregnant.  The ovulation LH and the pregnancy hormone HCG are identical therefore when a opk is dipped in the urine it will detect the hcg hormone as well as the LH making the test line appear darker. I took 3 pregnancy test already and each one revealed that I wasn't pregnant. I'm still very hopeful though. I pray this is our month. I will take another test around the 27th; I would be around 10 dpo by then.  Anywhoo that's what's going on in my neck of the woods :) ttys

I have been thinking about baby names lately and I have officially fell in love with the name Grey. I am also fond of Asia too but I'm really loving Grey for my future daughters name. I haven't put much thought into boys name but I do like the name Elijah or Eli. My husband thinks it's only fair he name our next baby since I named our first two daughters. Guess what name he suggested! Go ahead, guess! Seven. Yep, you're reading that right don't go find your glasses or put on your contacts :) Seven,  S-E-V-E-N.. and guess what else! I kinda like it too!

Call me crazy!!

It's happening again! I am getting that feeling and I'm claiming it! I don't know if you're familiar with saying. My sister says it a lot. When she is looking for a job instead of saying I hope I find a job she would claim it by saying I WILL find a job. So I am claiming my blessing today I will be pregnant by March 30th 2013. I have a feeling I will be pregnant before that date. I don't really have any signs or symptoms..just my faith which is more than enough. I told  my husband I want to be pregnant by that date and he doesn't think its a good idea to put a date on it. I know he is trying to protect me from getting hurt in case I don't conceive by then. I bought some opks from early pregnancy test.com through Amazon website. It was cheaper; I purchased 40 opks and 10 pregnancy tests for 24.00 free S&H. On earlypregnancytests.com it was 24.00 for 25 opks, so I got a good deal! The only downside to that deal is its taking an extra 5 days to receive my package. I think I already missed my ovulation because my temp dropped to 96.80. I'll see if it spikes tomorrow!! Fingers crossed

It's 6 am

It's 6:00 am and I find myself on early-pregnancy-tests.com looking at pre-seed, fertility monitors ect..sigh.. I am so anxious to see that BFP especially after I just found out my sister is 8 weeks pregnant. I miscarried Dec. 5th and I found out she was pregnant Dec 10th. I'm not sure if I mentioned this before but when she was 15 she and I were pregnant at the same time. I went into preterm labor and gave birth November 18, 2007 she gave birth to her son November 29,2007. I cannot tell you how awful I felt. I was happy she gave birth to a healthy baby boy but I was severely depressed for months. So this situation seem all too familiar minus the depression. There are days when I feel down but I quickly pick myself up. Honestly, I don't have time to be depressed. I have a house hold to run, clothes to wash, food to cook, laundry to fold. You get my dreft, oh I mean drift. :) My husband is a great listener and he feels everything will happen when God wants it to. So until then I guess I will be charting, taking opk's and my prenatal vitamins. Oh, speaking of vitamins i went to my local health food store and bought New Chapter Perfect Prenatal. The prenatals were 25.00 for 48 pills; which you're suppose to take 3x a day. Kinda pricey, I know! But they are Organic and whole food based so I thought I would give them a try. I take 2 instead of 3 a day, one in the morning and one at night. I plan on getting some opk's, but I really want a fertility monitor.preferably an ovacue but I will settle for a clearblue fertility monitor. My husband don't think we need it. I will remember that the next time we're at Hastings and he is trying to buy a Madden Football Game (lol) Until next time ttys :)
