I had a VERY relaxing 3rd acupuncture session today, extra needles too - one placed in each ear aswell as the usual ones. When the doctor felt my pulse he also said i am near to ovulating - now perhaps he knew this as he knows wherabouts in my cycle i am or perhaps he knew it through just feeling my pulse i dont know. Either way it made me have confidence in him. He also said to make sure i have 'lots of good times' lol as he is very confident for us this cycle!! Great!! I bought some warming patches last week so i have started to use them......i cant afford to buy any herbs at the moment which im not too bothered about as i have some fertility blend left for me and bf so we started that a few days ago. To be honest i prefer taking the fertility blend as i know exactly whats in that, whereas with the herb mix they give you you dont know. Plus fertility blend doesnt taste revolting like their herb mix lol!
EWCM came in today, neg opk though - only a faint line. We bd last night so for now i think i will keep to every other day, perhaps every 2 days until i get high days on the monitor.
I do feel very good about this cycle, perhaps thats just due to the fact im doing the whole acupuncture thing i dont know......i just have high hopes for this one!!
Me and bf go on holiday in just over a weeks time, off to weymouth with my sister and her bf and we are taking the dogs so should be fun. I will be in the 2ww, so it will be good to take my mind off of it, think testing time will be due after we get home.
I have also started to cut out the amount of junk food i eat during the day - esp at work coffee time, im terrible. I really am going to try to keep to it this time!!!!!!!
How annoying, i just done an update and the computer froze and lost my entry!!
Am at work at the mo, hit a quiet patch so thought i would update.
I dont know where my o has gone, still getting low days on my monitor and im on CD16. I done an OPK earlier and got a near pos line so i guess time to start bd'ing - bf gonna be busy tonight lol!
Im still not eating the junk at 11am break and lunch. Im allowing myself treats of the evening though as i will just give up if i cant have anything!! I have swapped some of my normal teas for herbal teas so cutting out the caffine.
Anyway, back to work!!
CD 19 and still no sign of O!!!
Montitor is showing low the whole time, and hardly any EWCM still. Im very confused, my temps are still quite flat, the occasional rise which i think is more due to sleepless nights/getting too hot. I have been getting disctinct O pain this evening, OPK tested neg so im hoping my monitor will show something by tomo morning.
On a happier note, i have 2 things im really looking forward to, our holiday next week, and we have decided to get a new puppy. Our 1 year old dog will love having a 'brother' to play with!! We are going to visit our potential new furbaby on saturday.......bf is starting to think of names!!
So i woke up this morning with my usual very distinct ovulation pain. Thought great!! Today is O day!! Tested on my monitor, still showing as low, tested this afternoon on OPK, still negative. My temps are still flat. Then i thought to myself, what if its not O pain?? I experience this pain every month and my O always is confirmed on FF at this time. But, the pain is extactly the same as when i was diagnosed with a 10cm ovarian cyst (i had a scan a few yrs ago). So i scanned myself at work, and lo and behold, there it is. A damn 8.5cm cyst on my left ovary.
Now i spoke to the doc a while ago and she said whilst PCOS causes trouble with ttc, single large ones shouldnt. So i googled cysts, apparently they occur when 1, you fail to O, and the follicle keeps filling with fluid, or 2, the corpous luteum turns into a cyst after O. So im thinking perhaps this month i failed to O, hence the cyst.
OMG this is all so frustrating!!!!!
We are on our last day of holiday today, home tomo its gone so quick!! Its been a very relaxing time, the dogs have had a thoroughly good time too. Lots of walks to the beach and paddles in the sea!
CD 26 today, i got my 1st high day on my monitor yesterday!! So im not sure where the cyst arose from as it couldnt be as i failed to O as im building up to o now, and its certainly not a corpous luteum cyst as i definately havent o'ed already. I know it was definately 100% a cyst though, so perhaps it just delayed O. Im wondering if the vitex caused it? I stopped the vitex a week ago and my body is now gearing up to o. I have always found the vitex wonderful up until now? I wonder if it delayed my O and caused the cyst?
What on earth is going on this cycle??? CD 28, i had 3 high days on my monitor and its now gone back to low!!! So annoying, i just want to know if im going to O!! And i havent a clue when to expect af now. GRRRRRRRRR im so annoyed i dont know what else to write!!!
CD 31. I have decided to give up on this cycle and stop stressing. Im obviously not going to O, and obviously havent O'ed (still no +opk or temp increase). So, im just going to wait for af, i havent got a clue as to when she will arrive though. I guess i shouldnt complain, out of the total 21 months of ttc this is my fist annovulatory cycle im aware of........still so frustrating though, what a wasted month. It doesnt help that tomo is October, the month in which i concieved last year.
I have something else which is distracting me though, me and bf are getting another dog, a brother for our dog we have now! I cant wait, am so excited!!! We get him on 27th October!
I started spotting last night and this morning, af is nearly in full swing now. Im glad so i can move onto a fresh cycle but so so so gutted at having a wasted cycle. I hope this cycle will be ok......dont want another annovulatory one. Going to give it one more cycle i think then return to the doctors.
Cd 4 - what an odd af. Very light flow every day and sorry if tmi but its black/brown colour, like old blood.
My friend suggested to me to ask the doc if i can try clomid. My initial thought was no way, i dont need that as im o'ing most of the time. But after thinking about it for a couple of days and reading up on it AND asking the wonderful ladies on here im thinking it sounds like a really good idea. It helps make your O stronger and corrects any potential LP/FSH defects. So perhaps my o just isnt strong enough.....plus my spotting sometimes starts at 10dpo. Im getting very conscious of the fact its nearly 2 years of ttc now.
Im going to book an appointment with the doctor tomorrow, i so so so so hope he will aggree. Im going to see the male doc this time as im thinking he may be more amenable to it than the lady i normally see.....plus i think he has an area of gynae interest so thats gotta count for something. Please kepp fingers crossed this is my answer!!!
I had a really good appointment at the doctors! I showed him my latest charts, explained my concerns and asked him if he thought clomid would be helpful. He said yes he thought it would but doesnt want to put me straight on it because of the risks of multiples and ovarian hyperstimulation etc etc so would like to refer me to a gynaecologist to start investigations and then see if clomid is suitable!!
Im so pleased, he really listened to me and he didnt dismiss my charting like the female doctor did - infact told me to keep charting as its very useful!!
o, i just need to wait for the appointment to come through now!
