    Smile Not Giving Up!

    On to a new cycle! I know my CD1 begins when AF arrives, but for me, I always think of my cycle starting once it stops as that is when it all begins again- waiting to O, the 2ww, POAS millions of times hoping for a faint second line to show up!

    I thought I would give up after this emotional roller coaster, but I can't bring myself to quit. We had been "not trying, not preventing" which is kinda like saying "trying without the pressure" for us, for a while now. I am hoping that January is my month!

    Thanks for your support!! Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!!

    I would recommend taking a B-50 complex every day. I had a slight LP deficiency, I believe based on spotting for a day or two before AF. The B-50 seems to have really helped me out. Other than that, just relaxing and letting it happen if it's going to happen. Fingers and toes crossed for you still!

    I will buy some today Deb, thanks- I remember now you mentioning it last cycle. My LP's aren't as long as I think would be beneficial to give the little bean a chance to stick. And I do spot regularly before AF arrives. How many days did it extend yours for?

    Rachel-thanks! I have been jealous of all the mamas on here getting BFP's for the past couple years LOL! I sway back and forth at times whether 5 is in the cards for us or not, but I think my heart wants it to be. DH jokingly has always said "5", but maybe it's not a joke and it will happen!

    My cycles had been crazy and I thought I was perimenopausal, but I had gained quite a bit of weight over the past years. Since this January 4, I have been on my treadmill every day and have lost 15 lbs (162 to 147.0) and since I have been exercising, the last 3 months have been much better cycles. I would like to go back to 135 if I can. I am doing a virtual run to Whitehorse, YK from where I live which is 3200+ km away. I have a longing to go North, and I figured "running" there would keep me motivated. I also blog about it and talk about the towns, landmarks, etc as I run through them. It keeps me accountable!

    Have a great day everyone!

    Exactly! I am folllowing my run along with Google Maps. I use the sattelite view so I can really see the topography and get a more real sense of where I am running. Then I write about it. It's been so much fun, and I have ran almost 300 km since January 4. I guess that is just over 150 miles?? It takes my mind off of TTC too and gives me another goal other than being obsessed with getting that BFP!

    (loss ment.)
    When I first had really short LP (11 days), I took B-6, and it lengthened my LP to 12 or 13. Then, over time it improved, but I eventually started getting spotting before AF. So instead of going back to B-6, I started taking the B-50, which has all the B vitamins in it. I had heard that it is better for you to get all of them than to concentrate one specific B vitamin. Anyway, after a couple months, the spotting stopped and I was able to get pg, unlike the 3 early m/c that I think were at least partly attributable to low progesterone levels.
