Waiting for Baby Bird

What the Blink?!

What the blink?! I am not sure what cycle day I am on but it has been approximately a little over a week since I put away my feminine products. This means I am possibly two weeks into this cycle and if my cycles were “normal” according to doctors, then ovulation would be right around the corner. However, I’ve never been “normal” and I’ve never been known to ovulate on any day earlier than possibly calendar day 24 or 25. But today, I got a blinking smile! It was completely unexpected and has left me in total shock.

I rolled out of bed, rubbed the sleepy from my eyes, staggered to the bathroom, peed on the expensive ovulation prediction test stick, took a shower, got out of the shower and lo and behold I had a smiley face blinking at me! What the blink?! Do you know what this means?! This means that I might actually have a “normal” 28-30 day textbook cycle with ovulation around day 14 this month! Do you know what else this means?! This means God is doing a new thing and my body is supernaturally being healed. Do you know what else this means?! This means that hopefully I won’t be an enormous (not pregnant) fool much longer. Do you know what else this gorgeous smile means?! It means the time has come for the magical and romantic scheduled moment in which Daniel will hopefully pollinate my flower. Bow chicka wow wow!

Wondering what my face looked like when I saw the blinky smile? This was it.

  1. Hi, I am fairly new to your blog. I hope you don’t take this in a negative way, I just wanted to share one of my stories. I too have had ovulation problems. I tried several ovulation kits. Gave up on those after never getting a confirmed O. My RE recommended I try again and buy the Clear Blue one like in your above photo. I eventually got a blinking smiley for the first time! I was soooo excited! It is an amazing thing to see. Well after letting my RE know, she wanted to confirm ovulation had occurred by testing my progesterone. I went and had it checked, and it was so low. It showed I had not ovulated at all. 😦 I asked her how could it have said it was?! She said I got a false positive. The stick had frozen the next day on a solid smiley, so not sure if that had something to do with its defective reading?
    So I am hoping you don’t go through any of that false hope. You should be able call your OB/RE to have your progesterone checked to confirm. Best of luck to you!!!!!!!!!

    1. Thank you! My hope isn’t in the test stick though because I know they can be faulty. But rather my hope is in God and I believe that my prayers are being heard and answered. Hopefully this I the cycle 🙂

  4. That’s awesome!! I never got a “blinky face” when I used OPK’s, mine always went from “peak” to “low” without ever being “high”. I think this is a great sign!!! So happy you’re ovulating again, and on time!!! Have a fun weekend 😉

    1. I know right?! I remember last year I was walking into my parents house and screamed…”I started my period today!” I was jumping up and down and my dad looked alllll confused because he knew we were trying to conceive. I had to explain to him that it came and it hadn’t been over 50 days since the last one! HUGE milestone back then.

    1. Thanks sugars!! I wish you all could have seen my face when I looked down and saw a blinky smile. I seriously was not expecting anything for another week or so.

  6. I remember the shock and elation when I would finally have a positive OPK! 7-8 years ago there were no blinky faces… just mine when I actually ovulated! Now, just remember to stand on your head for about three hours after all three times you have sex in the next 36 hours. 😉

  7. God is totally working to restore your body. I am not amazed because He has made His promise to you for Josiah and He is working on fulfiling that promise. I AM so grateful, though, for the work that He is doing in your body and in your life! The woman that called you a (not pregnant) fool will have to eat her words very soon!!! Now…take MLACS advice and shave those sexy legs and go get to it!! Hooray!!!
