CD 16 and a + OPK

My body is being weird this cycle. Over the 18 months or so I spent charting, I noticed that I usually ovulate around CD 13 or CD 14. There have been times I have ovulated as late as CD 18, but that is rare for me.

I have been using OPKs this cycle at my husband's request. I started on CD 11 and had not yet had a positive result going into CD 14 (last Saturday). I missed testing on Saturday because I was in bed with a horribly painful, debilitating migraine headache. I tested yesterday, CD 15, and the OPK was close-to-a-positive-but-not-quite. I figured I was just catching the tail end of Saturday's surge.

I tested again this morning, just to be on the safe side, and I got a clearly positive test. Odd. I guess this means I will be ovulating sometime between tonight and tomorrow night. Very late in the cycle for me.

And I can't help but think how little chance we have of conceiving on our own, even with appropriately-timed sex.

One up side to finally getting a positive is that I can stop testing now until next month. ;-)
