Day 4 Rundown
Cycle Day: 21
Days Past Ovulation: 6
HPT Result: BFN
Symptoms: A little headachy late in the afternoon, slight cramping, tender breasts, and feeling “fullness” in my lower, left abdomen (I hope this doesn’t mean I have a cyst like with the Clomid cycle); Also tired, but it’s probably making up for the lack of sleep during the work week
Emotions: A little sensitive and moody
Notes: Today I started Googling “earliest bfp dpo,” which is a sign that the obsessive part of this wait is starting to kick in. I think that the routine part has also been established because I was lying in bed and had to pee and thought about testing and using my “pee-catcher.” Between the fertility monitor and Project Pee-a-thon, I have taken 9 pee-tests—And that’s only because when I get my first peak, I stop feeding the monitor since I know it kicks into autopilot and don’t want to waste anymore sticks; it’s freaking $50 for 30 sticks!
If you don’t know what this is all about, please check out this post: On Your Mark. Get Set. Pee.
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.
