CD1, Let's get rolling.

Ok, enough whining. I read back through a bunch of my posts and man am I a gloomy Gus. I really need to also note the good things going in my life - because there are so many. I have been so very blessed in this life and I do recognize it - its just on here I tend to write about fertility issues only so those other things don't come up as much. It amazes me that so many of you still read even though its almost all downer material.

Thanks for that. *hugs*

So... today is definately CD1. On wednesday I had really, really dark spotting happening and yesterday was very dark kinda heavier spotting and I thought it was going to be a 3 day very light dark cycle like last month and then WHAM ... last night I woke up 3 times with major cramping going on. Today I'm sitting with a heating pad and taking some tylonal. Good gosh AF is here with a vengence ... and all I can say is "AWESOME!" It's amazing the things that make me think "bring it on!" but after going with weird cycles for awhile when the cramps finally kick in and the body works like it should I grin and bear it.

Picking up the OPKs, Femara and printing out a temperature chart. I'm going to go all out and see what all happens this month. Also starting acupuncture today so noone can't say I haven't gone in with guns a'blazin.

Again, thank you for walking this pathway with me.


  1. Oh tell us how the acupunture goes, i always wanted to try it. With my bum knee and not sleeping well i thought about trying it!

  2. I will do that. I have gone to this guy for back issues, migraines and carpal tunnel - all with GREAT success .. so this just seems like a "duh."

  3. I wouldn't miss a day of reading your blog. That is what we are all here for. :)
    So glad to read that you are having a better day. You know, I thought that I was the only one on earth that was happy when AF showed up. If I am not pregnant, then by golly I want her to show up so that I know things are still working. (lol)
    Best wishes with all of the things that you are planning this month. Acupuncture~hmm~I have never thought about it. Here is to this year being our year for miracles. :) Thanks for all of your support. It means the world to me.
    Hugs and blessings,
    Stacey :)

  4. I may be quiet, but I am walking along with you. :) *hugs*
