I had my IUI this morning and my hubby's swimmers were really good! The doctor said my CM was good. I am ridiculously hopeful right now.
My temp is probably going to rise tomorrow, meaning I am Oing today. Perfect. Timing. I love it.
Oh but I do have a question... I had to temp 30 minutes earlier than usually because we had to get to the hospital early. Would that effect my temp that much? Both oral and vaginal temps stayed low...
Christina - OH YES. There will be some BDing tonight and tomorrow, just to be safe. I have been crampy and twingy all day. I know it's working it's magic down there.
Also something I didn't know before reading on that same website is that you're supposed to stop taking it during AF every month, I think because it causes your progesterone levels to be a bit higher and you can have a lighter AF as a result and won't get 'cleaned out' completely. I DID notice that the first day of AF, it was really light and my temp was still up, but then after I had been off the Maca for about 24 hrs, my temp dropped like a rock and AF came on full force! LOL. See my chart and you'll see what I mean.
I guess I've decided to temp every other day or so. I was going to this morning, but my DD came and woke us up before I had the chance and then I was up for the day. I didn't really feel like temping this morning anyway.
This has been a shorter period overall, YAY. Can't stand AF, so if she shortens her visit, I am one happy camper.
In other news, apparently there's a forest fire somewhere near here, but we have been unable to pinpoint exactly where, due to the lack of details in the news reporting, so here in just a bit we're going to take off and go look to make sure it's not a threat to us. The helicopter dropping the water has been flying right over our house. I noticed when I went for my run this A.M. that it was a bit smoky -- apparently the fire has been smoldering all day and then flared up again this afternoon and took off from there. It even jumped 95 it was so bad at one point. All this was going on while I was completely unaware of it today!
Mary- that's scary about the fire! Hope it isn't a threat. We live in a hilly area that gets pretty dry in the summer. There is usually at least 1 fire on the hills in front of our house. Scary but not a real threat as it's easily seen and contained pretty quickly.
As for the Maca, I didn't see that you should stop slowly. Yikes! It's been over 4 weeks now and temp is still pretty high so no issue for me (at least hopefully!). But I was only taking 2 pills each day so pretty low dosage. I thought about upping it mid way but decided against it. Good thing, it seems now.
Sorry work is slow. I bet it picks up soon. And for me, it is a good thing. I am so irritable that dealing with certain kinds of customers would be murder. One lady wants me to do a tasting for a party in Nov. I told her usually I would do them a few months out, so August. She wants sooner! Ummm, sorry lady...I don't need the business so take it or leave it. Blah!
