What was that?

I had a completely different post planned for today. I was planning about talking about my wonderful acupuncture experience on Friday and espousing my love for needles in my back... but then something happened yesterday that shook me up.

So, my midcycle u/s and HSG are planned for Monday. I decided not to do OPKs this month because #1 I can't seem to be able to read the damn things and #2 I'm getting my mid cycle before the HSG and we should be able to tell if by chance I ovulated early from that. I also have decided the only purpose to BBT is to confirm ovulation and therefore it is only necessary to do it a couple day prior to and following ovulation.

In light of the HSG, I decided to start my BBT Saturday morning. I temped on target. I'd been having some pains/twinges mostly on my left ovary so I was hoping that meant that something was growing down there. Everything is going fine until the early afternoon on Saturday. (cue dramatic music)

Big pains and lots of tenderness on my left ovary! What the hell? Freakin' mittelschmerz on CD9? Oh, come on! No one ovulates on CD 9. If someone tells me that they ovulated on CD 9 I would think they didn't know what they were talking about. But this is undeniably similar to ovulation pain and exactly what it felt like last month. So what just happened?

I wanted to wait and see what my BBT did this morning and it did NOT go up, so I probably did NOT ovulate. However, I am apparently a slow riser, so I'm not 100% sure yet.

Basically at this point I think I might have blown a cyst yesterday. I'm pretty worried that means that I won't have any good development on my mid cycle (I'm still holding out for the right ovary since I did feel a little something over there the other day). This is all very frustrating. Why do my ovaries have to be such drama queens?

Ugh, I know! I hate my body does new and unusual things all the time! Hopefully the pains meant nothing and you're gearing up for a great, normal ovulation in a few days!

I hope that the twinges is just things gearing up for a good ovulation. Good luck with your u/s and HSG tomorrow! I hope it goes well.
