Ovulation... CHECK!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with BBT charting, the above is my chart for this current break cycle.  Those beautiful red lines indicate that I ovulated on my own with no help from stimulation drugs!  Now, there is a myth/wive's tale that some women retain the follicle stimulating drugs in their system after an IVF cycle.  All that matters to me is that I ovulated on my own, and am now 3 dpo.  

By my usual pattern, I should have about 11 more days until my new cycle begins and we start moving forward with our FET!  I will call ART on DAY 1 of my next cycle and begin taking estrace on CD3.  I'm still unsure about protocol and such with a FET cycle.  It will be a learning process.

  • Please continue to pray for our precious frozen embryos.  
  • Please pray for Brandon and me that we will continue to move forward hopeful and with a joyful heart.

For a better description of the acronyms used in this post, visit my Lingo page.  I have them all listed on my page, along with a description and link with more useful information when necessary.


  1. I could never figure out BBT. Glad everything is moving right along and FET is getting closer daily!

  2. Wonderful news! So blessed to be a part of this journey with you and to see how God has transformed your heart since that first night meeting you. I remember praying that God would give you peace to embrace the trials. Not only has he done that but he has done even more by giving you HOPE and a joyful heart and the whole world can see!!

  3. This is wonderful news!!! Such a nice change from the previous few weeks when you weren't feeling so well. You've been on my mind lately and I'll continue to pray for you.

  4. Yay for Ovulation!! BBT, oh how I used to be obsessed with it, but it's been years since I looked at one. Prayers for a successful next month!

  5. So glad your body is bouncing back on its own...thinking of you and hope you can put the past few weeks behind you!!
