Well, it’s Wednesday morning and CD (cycle day) 12. Woke up, went pee, took my vitex, and my first round of progesterone cream of the day. I’m supposed to apply it on myself in 1/4 tsp. where the capillaries are closest to the skin (palm of hands, wrists, inner arms, neck or face) twice a day until CD (cycle day) 26. After the 26th day, I stop and see if my period comes within a week. I told my ovaries this morning that we are going to ovulate properly and make a baby this time (no, seriously, I did). Also since I’m almost out of this jar of cream, my new ones came in the mail yesterday. Toby dog even reminded me to take my meds this morning. He has a habit of pawing me until I do so. So if everybody could give my ovaries some sort of encouragement, that would be great. I’m over here with pretty much everything that you can cross on your person, crossed. I’m honestly trying to have high hopes for this cycle, but I don’t really wanna get that excited. I know that sounds so bad to say, but it’s the truth. But anyway, thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
So my nifty little FF (fertility friend) app tells me that my periods are 95% regular. What does that mean you ask? Pretty much 90% to 100% is a good thing, you have normal periods and shouldn’t really worry much about it. I feel lucky enough to know that I’m regular that way. But lower than 90%, you should probably go and seek some help. Thanks FF (fertility friend), I now know that I’m regular (sarcasm included). I’ll leave a link to their website down below for any ladies interested in checking it out. You can also download the app on your phone (I’m totally not sponsored by the way). It is really helpful since it does adjust itself to you and your body. Sometimes I feel like pounding my head into a wall, but that’s not a viable solution. Other than the migraine I’m working on getting rid of, we are still in the process of waiting for next Wednesday, which is when I can start progesterone cream again (yay me I suppose). As much as I hate the waiting game, it has to be done. I guess I’m just really impatient as far as this goes. Anyway, thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
After 5 horrible painful days of shark week, I am finally done. No more bleeding, no more cramps, no more gross. So now it’s back on track with meds, vitamins, and tracking for ovulation. That’s right, more temping for me. I start my progesterone cream again on the 13th which is Wednesday of next week. I continue that through day 26 of my cycle, and then stop, wait a week to see if my period comes again or not. If not, repeat process minus the bleeding. I feel like I’m on the repeat offender list. I’m so hoping this cycle is the cycle for us. I know I say that every cycle, but it’s the truth. All the letdowns really get to me, and it sucks to be honest. But, we have been sticking to our vitamins and I’m hoping so hard that will help. I just wanna scream at my ovaries to do their job right, but I know that probably won’t change anything. If it does, I’ll be shocked (if the neighbors hear me screaming, I’m not dying I swear). So in other words, keep your fingers crossed for us this month, cause I sure as shit am. Anyway, thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
So yesterday was a shit show. I took a pregnancy test after being god knows how late, and thought I saw something. Cue the excitement and happy tears. Obviously after much more detailed investigative work, there was nothing to be seen on the test. Cue emotional breakdown which included: tears, almost breaking the new carpet cleaner (I didn’t), and sitting in the bathroom for a good solid hour. But this morning after a long awaited, very confusing 66 day cycle, the red witch showed her face. That’s right, Mother nature is a biatch. I can say that I’m okay with it cause that last cycle was hell, but I am still a little bummed to be honest. I’m starting to look at it in a way that Marcus and I can try again. So you know, a little light at the end of the tunnel. I’d rather be growing a tiny human than bleeding right about now, but it is what it is. So cue the midol, dark chocolate cause my husband is bomb, tacos for dinner, my tiny human godson, and lots of kitchen packing. Hopefully that will take my mind off of the raging war hammer inside my uterus. Anyway, thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
Well, still no shark week as of yet, so today we venture to Walmart to buy pregnancy tests, among other things. Now I know I’ve told you before that I’m going to be really blunt and honest here, so if it’s too much for you stop reading now. Not only have I been having massive amounts of CM (cervical mucus), but both my breasts including nipples are killing me. Also, I’ve been warmer than usual, and I know it doesn’t really have anything with summer. I’m at the point to where if I’m going to start my period, then I want to get it over with, but if I’m pregnant I just want to know already. We’ve still been taking our vitamins religiously it seems, and I do notice a difference with myself. I’m not sure if Marcus does because he hasn’t said much about it to me. Anyway, we are going on a date tomorrow night, hence the other things we need at Walmart. Besides the vitamins, Marcus and I have been trying to eat a lot healthier too, which I’ve noticed that I’ve been craving certain things which is weird for me unless it’s time for shark week. But I should probably end this here so I don’t ramble your ears off anymore then I have been. Thank you guys for all the love and support as always. Much love.
Yesterday was super crazy. Marcus didn’t get done with work until about 6:15pm, so we had to rush and try to get all of our errands done. But on the bright side, we picked up our vitamins! I’ll leave the link down below where we go them. I took my very first one this morning, and Marcus will take his when he gets home later today. It’s a months supply, so we will see what happens. So far I’m 5 DPO (days past ovulation), and actually not feeling too bad. I had a minor headache today, but I feel better now. To be honest I’m probably going to just relax until Marcus gets home. I’m crossing everything but my ovaries (hahah…no…okay..) for this to be our cycle. So far so good. My temps are looking good, and now we are waiting to see if my period comes or not next Thursday. I’m a little nervous, but it will all be worth it in the end (seriously, I’m going to print this on a shirt). I’ve also been pinning things to Pinterest like mad, which if you wanna check out mine, it’s on the menu at the top of the blog. Anyway, thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
I finally have some news! I ovulated for the very first time, and I caught it! Well, I don’t think it was the very first time, but the important thing is that I actually was aware and got it on time. That sorta explains why my period hasn’t arrived yet, and why I was having all those uncomfortable pains in my ovary. Anyway, our vitamin journey starts tomorrow, I stop my progesterone cream tomorrow, and then we wait and see what happens. I’m praying so hard right now that this is it. This is our month. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to ovulate on time. I mean I cried for heaven’s sake (it was emotional, sue me). I also wanted to thank you guys for all the comments that have been coming in. You guys are awesome! This journey has taken a toll on the both of us, and it means a lot to have the support and love that we do. Anyway, this might become a short post seeing as how all I did today was clean the kitchen and hang out with Marcus after he got home. Thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
