I’m so excited that I got a positive OPK today on CD 17! I weirdly feel the need to share this news and I think this might be the only place other people will understand where the excitement is coming from :).
Got some news earlier this month that my thyroid levels have gone up (I have Hashimoto’s, and higher thyroid levels mean my thyroid is underperforming atm). My endo advised me to wait a couple months before TTC again. Even though my level of 2.86 is in the “normal” range, it wasn’t optimal for pregnancy; usually endo’s recommend a level between 0-1. I’m also starting to think it might have been the reason why I had a CP in January.
I also had a short luteal phase in March after ovulating late on CD 21. So getting the positive OPK today was some much needed good news! I also had EWCM this morning, and cramping on my left side. Left side cramping was also exciting bc last month I felt cramping on my right side with a positive OPK – one more sign my body is doing all the right things again!
Good luck to everyone else still on the TTC train. Much <3 and baby dust to you all!
