dancing into the weekend

Wow. Thank you all so much! I can honestly say I've never seen so many people excited about my pee on a stick. And, come to think of it, I don't think I've ever been so excited myself about peeing on a stick.

Yesterday was CD 14, which means that the egg will drop sometime between yesterday and CD 16. I'm still in shock, but relieved to know that (thanks to acu!) my body is working again. My acupuncturist will be so happy to hear this news, too. Funny, I don't even care if I don't get pregnant. I'm just thrilled to know that I ovulated, sans pills and injections. It's amazing to no longer feel broken.

And thank you all for the good thoughts and prayers for Joey. He's on several different medications and feeling a little better, which is good considering that they can't get him in for an upper GI until August 26. Do you believe that? Apparently, coughing up blood and vomiting is not considered urgent. For now, we wait it out.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! It doesn't take a genius to figure out what we'll be doing . . .

You're so inspirational!
But, booo. What an awful time for your husband to be sick! I mean, I know it's awful being sick any time, but when you're ovulating? AHHHHH

A +OPK is totally worth the dancing and smiles. :) I get freakin' excited about a medicated positive...I can't even imagine a non-medicated positive. Like you said, it means your body isn't broken anymore!!

Have an AWESOME weekend with the hubby, gettin' BUSY!!!

Oh YAY for a (+)OPK :) That IS exciting Katie!!!!!!!!!
I'm so worried about Joey ... I hope that he's fine. Was he sick leading up to this coughing blood spell? Like, did he have any respiratory problems or a cold that would have aggravated his esophagus? You are both in my P&PT's.

Just catching up on blog reading, so I'm a little delayed in congratulating you on your BFO! Yay! So I guess acupuncture does work for some people, and I'm glad you're one of them! :) *hugs*

regarding the coughing up blood, you usually get in to see a doc sooner if you go to the ER.

Crossed Fingers said...

1. I'm still so thrilled for you! I'm still smiling over your smiley face! I have so much hope for you!

2. I truly hope everything is OK with Joey - and that it's not serious - but that is still very scary!
