Day 6 Rundown
Cycle Day: 23
Days Past Ovulation: 8
HPT Result: BFN
Symptoms: Crazy burning-type cramping (especially on the right side), a little headache-y in the afternoon, a little breast tenderness, tiredness, and small bits of nausea probably from the inconsistent temperature
Emotions: Anxious verging on hopeless; I think I’m just trying to prepare myself for another cycle of not conceiving
Notes: I had hard time getting to sleep last night (and most nights for the past several weeks). It’s not that I’m not physically tired, but more that I’ve been having a hard time getting my mind to be still.

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.
