Day 3 Rundown

Cycle Day: 20
Days Past Ovulation: 5
HPT Result: BFN
Symptoms: Increased appetite, a little headache-y in the late afternoon, some
pinching-type twinges
Emotions: Pretty good; comments here and in my BabyCenter group have been encouraging, so that has helped—As Shannon commented in a previous post, I think this may help “ease into disappointment”
Notes: I spent a hot day at the Napa Valley Aloha Festival and saw a huge Monarch butterfly fly through the performance tent and thought of my babies. While I was laying down, listening to the music, I felt peace and calm wash over me—These moments have been few lately, and I was grateful for it.

TTC is hard.

A little info about this cycle: This month marks 3 years since we decided (that word makes me laugh sometimes) to have children. It is 6 months since losing Gaelen, 20 months since losing Rainbow, and 30 months since losing Calvin.

This month’s “protocol”: I am temp’ing and charting at Fertility Friend. I took Letrozole (generic Femara) from cycle days 2-6. I used the Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor. I am receiving acupuncture once a week and have been seeing my chiropractor (where I also receive N.E.T. get an awesome 10-minute chair massage from an extern) every two weeks.

To see my results from previous days, please see:

  1. You are so brave! Thinking about you & praying. I may have told you I have a prayer journal and you are listed in it. Continuing to hope that I can someday check off that the prayer for a take home baby for you & Louie has been answered!

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." (Ephesians 4:29)
