Day 9 Rundown
Cycle Day: 26
Days Past Ovulation: 11
Symptoms: Cramps, Tiredness, a little nighttime headaches
Emotions: Stressed (work stuff), some disbelief, nervous/anxious, a little worried, but hopeful
Notes: I didn’t say anything yesterday because the camera didn’t pick it up, but I think this one is a little more telling. I contacted my RE’s nurse yesterday, and she had me go in for bloodwork to get a more definitive answer than the super faint lines I saw on those two tests. Yes, I am pregnant with baby number four. It’s still sinking in. And it’s still very early. I will get follow-up labs on Monday. If you have any prayers, light, good thoughts, and positive energy to spare, we would greatly appreciate it for us and our newest little one during this time (and hopefully, for the next 9 1/2 months).

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.
