Day 8 Rundown
Cycle Day: 25
Days Past Ovulation: 10
Symptoms: More cramps, backache, tiredness, tender breasts, headache in the afternoon and light sensitivity at night
Emotions: Nervous and anxious, but trying to keep calm; This whole pee-a-thon thing is actually pretty hard.
Notes: My temperature went up by a little this morning and that made me feel hopeful; I also think that the acupuncture and visualization from yesterday have carried over. As you can see, I took two tests—just attribute that to the nervousness/anxiousness. Wonder how many I’ll end up taking tomorrow?

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.
