Ok, so here's what happened.
Monday morning before I went down to Port St. Lucie/South Florida to do a charity event with Chef, I POAS because you know, no period yet, temps are still high at this point, and I knew we were probably going to have a few drinks at the end of the night. BFN. So I was like, ok. Grabbed a tampon to keep with me because I had felt a few cramps. The event went great, had a rum and coke there and then a few more drinks over the course of several hours when we got back to Chefs house. I was pretty toasty. Toasty enough that I had to sit and wait a bit before I could lay down to go to bed.
Tuesday was fairly miserable. Forgot to temp. More cramps (light ones) so I put a tampon in since I knew AF was coming. I was exhausted from the night before, and after work, I had to drive an hour to babysit. I took a 20 minute nap along the way.
Today I woke up and took my temperature. 98.07ºF. At this point I'm figuring that I ovulated a few days later than I thought I did. I get up and go into the bathroom. I pull out the tampon and start peeing. I realize the tampon is clean, so I stop the stream, pull out a POAS, and test. And as I'm watching it, I'm doing this blinking thing--trying to clear my vision from just waking up. I couldn't fricken believe my eyes. There it was. 2 lines. HOLY SHIT. I looked at it 10 more times. Still there. I couldn't even gather my wits together enough to do anything fun for Kevin. I pulled back the shower curtain (he was already in the shower) and held up the stick. He thought it was a positive OPK lol. Then he's like, "and you're sure you've never seen anything like that before? Never had 2 lines ever?" So I grab the one from Monday out of the trash, and sure as shit there are 2 lines there, too. YOU MEAN I COULD HAVE KNOWN SINCE MONDAY?!?!?!?! I watched the silly thing for about 3 minutes before writing it off as a BFN and threw it out. I would NOT have had anything to drink if I had known. WTF.
So anyhoo, now my big issue is to figure out how to tell everyone that I'm canceling getting a tattoo on Saturday, after I already made my appointment. I think I'll go with the "I have to buy tires for my car" thing.
