TTC Diaries & Graduates
I've been meaning to start this diary for weeks now! So now that I'm into my 5th cycle, I thought its about time!
I am currently on CD4 and had a very short AF this cycle, it actually only lasted 2 days, and was heavy for those 2, but its totally gone now. It was also pain free thankfully. I was pretty upset this time around at AF arriving, and have been a bit down all week, but I am starting to look forward to OV next week. I am due to OV between Wed 9th Sept and Tues 15th...but that's according to the ovulation calendar, so I'll have to just BD as much as poss around those fertile days. I am not temping, don't really want to as I know it will just confuse me and I' know I'll get it wrong and miss days. I did consider getting OV tests, but I really don't want to go down that road. I have pretty regular cycles, usually 28 days, but I had a 27 day cycle this time. I do keep an eye on CM and noticed I had EWCM around day 13/14, so I must be pretty regular at OV too.
Anyway, I we'll just have to see if this is my lucky month! I was given between Sept & November to conceive in my Brooke reading, so I hope its true!
Ok, until next time!
I went into one of my local health stores, who I know are really good with advice about all sorts. So I asked what multi-vits I should take and if it would be better to take a specific one for TFAB, eventhough I had before and wasn't sure if there was much point and maybe best to just take a normal multi-vit. Anyway, after a bit of a chat with this man, who was super helpful, he said due to my hormone levels and the fact my progesterone was quite low a few months ago, that I should try Agnus Castus. I had obviously hear of this from these boards, but always was under the impression it was more for ladies who have irregular cycles etc, and as mine are very regular it wasn't for me. But he said its my hormones I need to sort, that its one of the most important things to get right. Another thing he advised was that I don't skip meals....which I do very often! He said this affects the hormone levels and its not going to help. So I need to start eating a bit better, eventhough I do eat healthily, but I do skip meals and if I want to get pregnant I will just need to sort that.
So felt quite positive after, and he made a lot of sense! So fingers crossed this will do the trick, as long as I do everything right of course! I started Agnus Castus today, took 20 drops in water, twice today. Tastes gross, but if it works!
I'm around 6dpo, due AF on the 19th.
I've had a hard few days tbh. Been really emotional, had a huge row with DH on Sunday, just in tears most of the time and then today, found out that my first cousin (who is about 5 years younger than me) is pregnant with her first. I was almost in tears when I found out, while walking down the street speaking on the phone to my sister. I just could not hold back the tears. I am really happy for her, I am just so fed up of hearing of ladies I know getting pregnant at the moment.
I have to get out of this negative frame of mind, I'm just so sick of the way things are going at the moment.
decided to stop taking agnus castus until af arrives again, as a lot of people have said not to take after OV. I am hoping AF doesn't come and that's the end of having to take AC anyway!
