Oh I just read on your journal you were let down by donor this month. ... that sucks.

I guess a new cycle and chance is what you were waiting for then!

Exactly that! Was still a bit gutted as I have been trying to lengthen my luteal phase... But hey.
Soy isoflavones work like clomid :-)

Sorry your test was negative. It is the WORST when our bodies tease!

Oh I see- how long is your luteal phase?

I think mine is 12 days - I ov on cd17 and period came day 30 ( so 29 day cycle). Im new to the whole charting etc though! It was only when it didn't happen for us after 6 months I decided to get a bit more serious!

I have always had clockwork 28 day cycle but this time was the 1st time I tried reflexology. I think it may have something to do with extra day- plus its heavier than usual which im seeing as a good thing

Have u tried reflexology? I was cautious at 1st but I love it now!

9 or ten days. Which is not amazing...

I don't really understand what reflexology is..?

Well reflexology is a type of massage on your feet ( I never used to like anyone touching my feet!) And theres a chart that shows how each part links to your body so my lady is doing my at beginning of cycle then just before ovulation and working on all the relevant areas. Some people swear by it!

It definitely makes me feel good and so relaxing so if nothing else- that might help! Plus my period is much heavier so I wonder if it helped me build a thicker lining? !

9-10 days, so I guess you need it to be a day or 2 longer to give egg best chance of implanting right? Although if it implaned day 6-9 you would be alright??

Sounds interesting. Might give it a go if nothing in a few cycles, but feet are icky! Interesting how our bodies work though!

Yeah. I know there are ladies who get pregnant with a 9/10 day LP but if rather up it to give more of a chance for a bean to settle in

That's exactly how I felt about my feet . 1st appointment I said 'sorry about my feet!' But now I just whip them out!

I think im going to buy grapefruit juice today- no idea if I will like it. Meant to help get more fertile cm going.

We plan to try sperm meets egg plan this month which im a bit daunted by cos is been a fee years since we were bding anywhere near that much!

Can I ask with artificial insemination will you try a few timew or do you just do it once really well timed?
