WOW, CD 25 and no sign of AF. I like this. Whether I'm pg or not, I gotta say I like this feeling. I think the herbs/vitamins are working pretty good.
My temps have been all over the place this cycle. I think part of the problem lies with my schedule this cycle and all the traveling I've been doing. The other part of the problem lies with the crazy weather we have had lately. One day it was 60 degrees. The next day it was below freezin and has stayed there for the past week. The final part lies with my poor DD's sleep problems. Lately she is up at all hours with bad dreams or because of her cold. Hopefully things even out soon.
I'm cutting back on some of the duplication of my supplements.
I'm now only going to take the following:
Super B Complex
Fertil Aid (but only until I O)
Women's Formula MultiVitamin
Cramps came this morning and then AF showed around 8am. The cramps were so bad they woke me up. Haven't had that problem in awhile.
I feel like something is working. My LP now averages 12 days with the last three being 12, 11 and 12. Plus my cycles are starting to even out. The last four have been 25, 24, 26 and 24. So I'm definitely happy about that.
My vitamins and herbs are starting to make me queasy. I hope this is a just a passing thing. I ate an apple this morning after it started and it seemed to help. Hopefully it won't last forever.
Also, I think either the Valerian Root or the Black Cohosh is making me not sleep well and giving me weird dreams. I'm going to skip the Valerian Root tonight and take the Black Cohosh and then reverse it tomorrow night to see if I notice any difference.
Stacey, sorry you are feeling yucky hun! B vitamins tend to make me feel like I'm going to too. Try taking them with food...something starchy, like a bowl of cereal. Also the B's give you energy, so don't take them right before bed. If I take them past noon, I can't sleep at night.
Any news on clomid?
Thanks for the suggestion Bobbie. I will definitely keep it in mind.
AF showed on Sunday the 17th. I'm okay with that though. We were both sick on and off this last cycle so if I had conceived, it would have been a miracle baby since we last had sex about 6 days before I O'd. lol
Anyway, on a positive note, my cycle was 24 days. My LP was 11 days. I like those numbers. I got pg with Dani with numbers like that. Plus, according to fertility friend, my average cycle length is now 24 days and my average LP is 12 days. So things are doing better.
I've rearranged my vitamins and while I'm taking less pills, I'm taking about the same amounts as before. I have switched to taking Fertil-Aid because it contains everything I was taking before in one pill that I take 3 times a day. I like that much better than 20+ pills once a day. I'm also continuing to take a multi vitamin, B-Complex, B-6, Vit E, Vit C and my Allegra D because I can't get away with not breathing. lmao
I took my ticker out of my siggy because it was just making me sad. I can only take so much of seeing it say Cycle X of X Cycles.

Well I don't know what is going on with my body. lol
I took a HPT last night because well, I'm addicted to POAS. There was a distinct faint pink second line. So, I took another one - same brand - and got the same result within two minutes.
I tested again this morning with FMU and did two tests (I used test strips so I technically peed into a cup. lol). Anyway, one had the same result as last night. The other was a BFN.
ARGH!!!! I'm going out at lunch and buying two digital tests. This back and forth is killing me.
Well it turns out that the old saying "a line, is a line, is a line" is true:
