The brand of vitamins is Fertility Blend, although I think they have all the same ingredients (Vitex,selenium, B vitamins etc.) as the other vitamin fertility brands. One thing is that they have iron, so I'm wondering if it's a good thing for me with high blood counts, but at least DH can take them.
The weirdest thing happened- Friday I didn't do much exercise. I walked down 6 flights of stairs instead of taking the elevator so I could talk to DH, but then forgot my train pass so had to walk back upstairs. I usually have to walk up/down 2 flights of stairs multiple times each day, so this is not unusual for me, and that was the sum total of my exercise for the day. Saturday morning I woke up feeling like I ran a few miles, the muscles in my legs ached so much, and they've been sore ever since. Walking up or down stairs is not fun at all, so I'm avoiding when possible. Anyone ever heard of anything like this? I'm worried because I'm supposed to go out of town Thursday...
Xan - Has your dh started taking the vitamins? Sorry I don't have anything helpful to say about your legs, but I hope they don't still hurt and it was just a one time thing.
afm- This cycle has been so screwy. FF gave me solid cross hairs for last Thursday then after 2 days of high temps my temp dropped and it took them away, then it went back up yesterday so it gave me dotted cross hairs. My temp was up higher this morning and AF just showed a few hours ago. my boobs just started being sore yesterday and I have no cramps. But its red red and its more than spotting. I don't know if I ovulated or not. my opk Wednesday was pretty dang close to positive, if I did O then my LP was only 5 days, that's not good. Well I hope everyone is having a good week happy hump day
Dragonfly, I'm glad your appointment went well. Did you hear back anything more about your/dhs test results? Femera seems good! I've heard it has less side effects than clomid.
Xan , it's possible its just a build up of exercise you have been doing and those steps pushed you over the edge, or dehydration/ low potassium. I hope you feel better!
Leetie I'm sorry AF showed TTC, too, though I'd wait a week and test if it doesn't come back!
AFM I did indeed o while we were away. I can't describe the intensity of the cramps. Now I have some cramping and this intermittent tickling feeling in my pelvis/back area. Breasts starting to get sore. Got my day 21 bloods Saturday then AF or hopefully pg around the corner..
Sorry for the flu, Xan. I had that a couple months ago and it stuck around for a while... I hope yours clears up quick! Never count yourself out!
Leetie - at least you're not having cramps. That's a relief.
AFM something like 5 DPO today, maybe 6. Had really vivid, emotional dreams last night. One where DH and I got in a massive screaming fight, one where I let someone put my hair in pigtails and they chopped it off while I wasn't paying attention, which was distressing as I have really long hair and I was crying and bemoaning having to go to the hairdresser for the JLaw (it just doesn't look good on me, I had that about 8 years ago). I also had one with my best friend in it where we were just laughing like crazy over nothing.
Otherwise the cramping is mostly gone, kind of just feels like I have a pulled muscle in my side. Extremely tired and thirsty but somewhat nauseous.
Hey ladies! Gosh it feels like ages since I've been on bnb. We went to spend time with family because a friend of BIL's was killed in a car accident
TTC - How strange about a one day period, did it ever come back? Exciting about shopping for the new bed, I hope you found a super comfy one!
Xan - Glad your legs are starting to feel better, but that really sucks about getting the flu. I hope that you get well fast!
Leetie - I'm sorry that af got you after such a screwy cycle I hope that your body is just clearing the way for next cycle to be much better. On the bright side at least you're not having to deal with cramps
Labgal - Glad that you O'd! I'm praying for a bfp for you!!
AFM: CD18 and waiting to O, my temps have been all over the place and I keep hoping that they just start dancing their way upward. We've been bd'ing as we please so it's been mostly relaxed. Picked up my Femara today, even though I wont be taking it until next cycle. Had a lot of cm and severe side pains today that when I found a dollar store opk while putting away laundry I took it and I think it may be close to a positive so we'll bd some more and I'll hope to get a crosshair in the next few days!
Hey there ladies!
Xan-sorry you have the flu hope it's gone by now.
Leetie- sorry AF found you but luckily not terrible cramps to go with the dreaded witch
Lab- Hope those are all good signs, FX'd for you hun!!
Dragonfly- I'm so sorry to hear about BIL's friend. Hope you O soon followed by bfp so you don't even need the meds!
AFM- nope AF never came back. I haven't tested again to see if MAYBE, the slightest of maybes that I will get a bfp. I just don't wanna see another 1 line test ugh. The good news is I found out about the healthcare I was approved for at no cost to me and I have appointments next month to get a physical, a woman wellness exam and meet my new family practice dr and gyn. Honestly, I haven't been to the dr in so long I'm a little nervous.
Ttc - yay for insurance! I'm working on getting some so hopefully I will be able to make appointments soon. I get nervous just talking to people on the phone I will probably be a wreck when I actually have to go to one. I haven't been to a doctor in years either.
