So, yesterday we had a VERY VERY dark OPK. I gave Superhero Donor a text and he confirmed that he could do later that night, which is great. However, the positive OPK at that point was totally sod’s law. Here’s why.
As some of you know, I have found Ovusense very helpful for monitoring my temps and confirming ovulation. With the slightly unpredictable OPKs the last few months, being able to see the distinct rise has been wonderful. So, I’m chugging along happily using my ovusense every night and what happens? It breaks. I came to use it the other night and it just wouldn’t turn on. Great. Just before expected ovulation. I emailed the ladies at Ovusense and they arranged a new one for me, which arrived today, so thankfully there will be only a two day gap.
Back to last night. Superhero Donor came over, did his thing and left the cup on the bedside table. I was in the bathroom and Loki did his “I am up to Mischief” prance that he does. Usually it involves him stealing a sock from the washing pile and running around the house with it for a while. I went downstairs after him to see what he had and was absolutely mortified to see that it was the POT OF SPERMS! Imagine me, chasing this mischievous little dog around the house whilst he playbows and leaps into the air with glee at what a snealy little munchkin he is being. I was just praying that the cup didn’t split in his mouth (“dog ate your sperm!”) or the lid come off (sperm on the carpet!)! Thankfully that didn’t happen and I was able to retreive the donation and inseminate as planned.
I think he was just trying to keep them warm… but I wonder how the sperm felt about the impromputu joyride!
We are doing inseminations pretty much every other day over the coming days until I see a sustained temp rise and we know for sure that ovulation happened. With us using the clomid this month, we are determined to keep all of our bases covered no matter how stupid the OPKs are being.
Oh, also. We got the house! Yay! Moving at the end of the month!
