This is going to involve talk about my fertility so if it’s TMI one should back up ASAP.
Yesterday I hit a HUGE goal. I had a positive OPK. Only the second one in two years, the first one being in December of 2009…the OPK that eventually led us to the infertility specialist. Restoring ovulation and overall hormonal balance has been a huge motivator for me. Sure I can take drugs to make it all happen and in the end I probably will for the timing of fertility treatments, but it has been really important to me to get my body balanced. I want my body to be happy so I can feel good and not start off on uneven ground, so I can continue this fertility journey on a solid foundation.
Yesterday we decided we will wait two cycles before trying to get pregnant on our own…again…and hope that those positive OPKs keep coming every month. I have initiated a personal challenge. For the next two months I am going to live healthfully and consistently with positive choices.
