Update: Ovu-LATE-shun

Well whaddaya know. So the last few mornings I've taken my BBT and there was no rise whatsoever. Then, this morning (CD 17-unheard of for me) I presented with abundant, stretchy CM. So I tested LH again and lo and behold it was a very dark positive. So I guess I hadn't ovulated a few days ago and my body is trying again. I suspected this might happen. Will continue to test BBT to see if there's a rise.

(Note: The Hubs and I did the deed today but didn't use the pasteurized eggwhites this time. Maybe we'll go for it again tomorrow. So... what was already a wholly unscientific experiment with no controls : Can Eggwhites Up Your Cooter Help You Get Knocked Up Even When You Know It's a Friggin' Retarded Idea? is even further tainted. All I know is that I am SO ready for our first IVF cycle approximately 17 or 18 days from now.)

Sorry to hear about the further taint in the experiment. But glad to hear you were able to work in a little nookie despite the late ovulation.

If you have abundant CM you don't even need the egg whites. Lucky you. :)

Glad to hear you are making use of your time before the IVF cycle, and (hopefully) having a little fun at the same time!

you aren't going to get a good grade on your science project at this point. If nothing else, it's a source of amusement and a funny story to gross out your kids someday.

if you've got your own CM there's no need for the eggwhite, which personally is a relief for me! Hoping that you will be an urban legend, and not need the ivf.

Eggs have a timetable all of their own. Better late than not at all.
I hope this is your month!

Watch, it will end up working. Then you'll have everyone going with the egg whites.

Good luck with the science project, and even if it doesn't work 17 or 18 days isn't too far off.

17 or 18 days will be gone in no time! I hope this cycle is the one!
