cd 14!!! that always is an exciting time. NO pressure right? LOL
My naturopathic dr put me on a strict diet, a LONG list of 'don't eat' including rice, wheat, sugar, dairy, pork.... basically most food except a few veggies and chicken. Beef twice a week is ok so tonight we are having STEAK. Im so hungry i can't wait.
Oh and some new supplements to help kill the candida infestation that I apparently have. I didnt loose any weight this week :( but i'm hopeful that i'll see a drop next week.
Its superbowl sunday, I spent the morning in bed feeling sick and sorry for myself (after being sick for weeks now)
and i'm hungry and depressed that I can't eat anything. :(
I had a little meltdown today, now i'm home alone for a few hours :(
I found a recipe online for nosugar oatmeal cookies, so I made them with a few adaptations like half the butter but I added applesauce,,, well as soon as I took them out of the oven I remembered I forgot to put in an egg. Yupp, they fall apart in your hand, almost need to eat them out of a bowl with a spoon. If I could drink milk i'd eat it like granola but I can't have milk. :( Poor me.
And my temp went way down today again. wierd but i had a rough night, hardly slept and dh kept stealing the covers so I was cold.
Still sick. I went back to the dr today as this is three weeks now. I'm exhausted, can't sleep at night and caughing all the time (esp at night). Dr gave me antibiotics DARN and a puffer to help me at night. I hate taking antibiotics. And just in time for me to be taking the anti candida supplements, the pills will just cause the candida to grow again. BOOOOOOO
Oh well, this cycle is on its final stretch. Oh unless its as long as last month. I lost 3 more lbs :) so that makes my total 14. I can see a difference now in my clothes and that is motivating. I can't wait till I feel better and can start excercising a little.
My kids went away with their uncle for two nights but both dh and I were feeling sick so we couldn't even "enjoy" our alone time. :(
My temp went up today, just enough to give me false hope. I'm guessing that i'm 7dpo. I have a bunch of $store tests to have fun with in a few days.
Wed I'm going to my naturopathic dr again. I wasn't sure if I should bother going thinking its a waste of money to see her so soon but since i've been so sick it is a good thing. I wonder if my diet has anything to do with me getting bronchitis.
I'm off tomorrow YEHAAA. Going to my appt in the morning. Hopefully she will let me know if there are any foods I can cheat on.
Kids are back, back to normal now busy and loud house. Dinners on time.... oh well. How long till summer vacation?
Ok confession time. I tested today. Why am I confessing? Its not like its a new crime for me. Just the usual obsession. After me spending the last two weeks hoping that this wasnt the month just for health / risk reasons. But now i'm excited as my temp is really high. Oh I never said but I got a bfn. I did get a lovely evap line on yesterdays test :lol:
I'm feeling good, well getting better from my bronchitis slowly. Still have a bad caugh but its slowly becoming less frequent. I've been doing good on my diet too. The naturopath added a few foods to my allowed list. Tea, I can't believe how excited I am to have tea every day :lol: Well being a coffee drinker and having to quit cold turkey that and booze I'm LOVING tea. And I can have beef whenever I want. So its coming along and I'll be weighing myself tomorrow after work (maybe later tonight) I'm hoping to loose at LEAST 2 lbs this week.
Oh and as for preg symptoms. I have NONE.
Yippee, its weigh in day. I'm hoping for a few lbs lost. I feel a bit crampy today :( My temp was high again today. I was worried maybe my battery is dying and my temps are flatlining because of that. But I tested last night and it was different.
Just keep swimming
Yea, I lost another 2 1/2 lbs :)
My temps are high. BFN
well this chart of mine is making me get my hopes up. Probably all for nothing. At least i'm feeling better now. Last night we went out for dinner to a friends house. I ate everything thats not allowed on my diet and it was wonderful! I didnt feel sick either. Back on the bandwagon now however.
Got a bfn today again. I'm used to those. I wonder what my temp will be tomorrow....
Yup, my temp went down two days in a row. How lovely. OH well. Here's moving on to cycle two with the naturopath. Last night it did cross my mind that this new regimine of supplements might not be my "cure" after all and if it doesn't work than i'm back to major fertility treatments. :( I dont want to go that route anymore. Ok, positive thinking, hmm that would be something new to try :lol:
I"m off tomorrow and thurday :) So I hope to cross the line and go shopping in the US. Shopping therapy when broke doesnt work as much but it will be nice to look at different things.
