Aein, glad to hear the witch finally showed. Good luck this cycle!
How are all our preggo ladies doing?? Hope its all good news!
I have nothing new to report. I havent been on much because frankly, I feel really discouraged & have been putting my time into more positive things. I planted my vegetable garden & everything is looking good so far! We have so many different veggies its unreal, but I'm sooo excited! I bought a food processor at a tupperware party & that bad boy cuts through onions & tomatoes like they're butter!!! I'm so excited to make homemade salsa & pasta sauce & jar it. I'm also focusing on losing weight. So far I've only lost 1 more pound, but its something. I'm hoping still to lose a good bit before our trip to myrtal beach, so I'm trying to eat healthier too. I'm not dieting, just maybe eating less. Or not going out to eat so much. Or when we do go out, I get something healthier like grilled chicken instead of fried. I can't do diets. I've tried in the past, but I think I can make smarter choices. I have been trying not to think about trying to concieve. AF still hasnt come & I couldnt even tell you what CD I'm on its been so long. I stopped counting @ 50. I havent called my doc because all he'll say is take Provera, & I dont want to do that. It makes me have horrible periods. So I guess at my next appt on May 8th I'll ask & press for a referrel to a fs. We have a little money put away, & that'll help with the fs expenses. If he wont refer me yet then I guess I'll just keep focusing on weightloss & everything else for a few more months. I wouldnt be crushed honestly if I had to wait a few months. Or even a year, so we can get some of our debt down. Just really tired of failing. It puts me in a depression way too much & I hate it. Hope everyone else is doing well though!
Aein, I hope your new cycle is much better for you.
Baby, I don't blame you for not wanting to take the drugs. Let AF come when it comes. Just take steps to improve your health. That's what I'm doing. Your garden sounds nice. I wish I had the space. I have a few container plants. I'm growing cilantro. I have a started an avocado tree (don't know what I will do with it). And I just bought a seed package today to plant lavender. I want to grow some lavender to see if I can make stuff with it.
AFM, I think my cycle is off to a good start. My temps have been really low (96.9) so that worries me a bit. I have been exercising and staying active. Learning how to eat gluten free is hard. I just figured out that some speghetti sauces have gluten in them and I never would have thought so. I have probally been accidentally glutening myself, but today I bought a jar that is labeled gluten free. I'm trying to eat organic as much as possible, but there is only a limited amount or organic foods available.
I'm pretty sure the "faint lines" I've been seeing are indents. Like I said before I have great vision and can see things most people can't, especially if I'm looking for it! So all these tiny gray lines have been torturing me these past few days making think I could have a BFP when I don't. I'm seriously disappointed, so many people swear by FRERs but I can't use them if they're all going to have that clearly visible (at least to me) indent line. I'll have to stick to new choice and digis. I have one FRER left so I'll probably use it but if I can't see an obvious pink line then I'm tossing it. No more obsessing over so called faint lines. I might just go to the docs for a blood test later this week. And get this over with once and for all. I can't even tell you how discouraging this has been.. I feel stupid for even thinking I could be pregnant silly me
Don't feel bad Aly. I've been there. Did you see the post of my messed up Walgreens blue dye test? It was supposed to be one of those plus or minus sign test, but instead I got neither. It was just a shadow of a plus. Needless to say, I am never buying those tests ever again.
