Quick Update and OPK psych outs

Sorry I haven't updated sooner. If I had I'd have told you that the injects cycle was canceled. Apparently, my RE's clinic doesn't play nice with others and would not coordinate a cycle with a clinic here, in Dallas. At first I was a bit miffed, but then I figured that it was probably best this way. It would have been EXTREMELY difficult for DH, as he can't take any time off while we are here. SOOO, we converted to a natural cycle.

Which brings me to the next thing. I SHOULD NEVER HAVE PURCHASED PINK DYE OPKS!!! Why? Well, because I have only ever used Cl.ear Bl.ue Easy. My RE will not accept the results from any other brand. But, when we went to buy them for this cycle, we couldn't find the CBE's anywhere, so we ended up with a gigantic box of Res.ponse OPKs. This was a BAD IDEA! That is usually the brand that I buy for pregnancy tests. The biggest problem is that the pregnacy tests and the OPKs are pretty much identical looking. I can't tell you the type of irrational confusion and rapid heartbeat that occured when I used the first one! Seeing 2 lines on it was really hard for me. I know how crazy it sounds, but seriously. It is still throwing me for a bit of a loop. See what I mean?

This is what I am used to seeing for OPKs:



Does anyone else see my dilema? I think there should be a rule. Blue dye for OPKs, pink for pregnancy tests. My brain would appreciate it!

I hope you are all doing wonderfully. We have a really spotty internet connection here at the hotel, so I promise to catch up with you all when I get back home this weekend.

Get your ass back home already!! I miss ya! Yes, you're right about the OPK's-what a total mind bend. I don't even use them, but if they had the two pink lines that would definitely freak me out, all the HPT's I've used are exactly the same with the pink lines. How annoying!!! Anyway looking forward to having you back :)

My heart was beating fast just looking at those sticks too. I can totally understand why your brain was confused. Sorry all that happened, but I'm, anxious for more updates....
