I really think I did actually ovulate. Amazing! Two days of + OPKs, the third day was negative, and the next day my temperature skyrocketed (98.5!). Even if nothing comes of it (which is the outcome I'm expecting, although obviously not the one I'm hoping for), it's still so nice to have my hormones somewhat back on track.
I've spent the weekend mulling over what might have done it, and come up with three possibilities:
1. My system was "kick-started" by the gonadotropins.
2. Acupuncture (been going weekly)
3. Not stepping on a scale for three weeks (until this morning), and gaining an extra 4 pounds:-p
And then there's always the theory propounded by someone whom I excitedly told about my ovaries' achievements:
4. Not so "tense".
hahahahhaha. I love that one. It boggles my mind. It is so completely illogical - why on earth would I have been "tense" when I first went off the pill? I had no reason to suspect there would be a problem. WHY do so many people think that all you have to do is "relax" to get pregnant??? I don't know many people (if any) who are not happy and excited and imagine they'll get pregnant in the first few months, when they first start trying. So why is it that after a year, two years, three..., all of a sudden relaxing is suppose to help?
