Hi clomid ladies. I am so happy that we represent such a range of attitudes and experiences here. I really am conflicted about what I should be doing and kind of terrified that every choice I make is somehow wrong for conception, even if I hope that it is right.
Cbaa, I hope that the acupuncture for implantation works! I am still undecided about acupuncture, since the ones I could see are all about a half an hour away on the highway. I had a strange feeling this month after all the avid bding around ovulation time--just a feeling of a letdown that at that point there was nothing I could do to help sperm and egg on their journey. Oh, I did eat well and try to remain calm in general, but aside from those things, I wanted to be able to do something active.
Littlenurse, thanks for the continued suggestions about shoes and exercise in general. I love to hear that you ran through 7 months with your last pregnancy! I read somewhere online about a woman who got her bfp right after running a marathon! Unfortunately for me, perhaps, I have been more erratic, so who knows what my body considers stable or normal. I kept telling myself that I'd do things that made me feel good, but when I was getting headaches and then last week neck pain, I just didn't know what my body was trying to tell me. I actually got a new pillow over the weekend and that seems to have helped a lot, which would be ironic if I am blaming a new yoga routine or running and it turns out to have been sleeping incorrectly. I would love to go for a run this morning and my flexible work schedule today allows it, but I also have so much to do.
Afm, I kept up with great temps and then bfns all weekend. Then last night I was nauseated when trying to sleep but this morning my temp had totally plummeted. This stinks and surely means af is on the way. Because of my professional reasons, we really only have 2 more months that it would work well for me to get a bfp before about 4 months when it would be problematic, before another brief month-long window, then 4 problematic months. I know that this is ridiculous, and we have to keep trying until I get a bfp, let it happen whenever it happens, but it is just another source of stress to think of giving birth at a time when it will be very inconvenient professionally. So many of my colleagues, younger and older than me, seem to be able to time it so perfectly, but who knows what goes on behind the scenes.
Hope we have some bfps rolling in soon! Cbaa, I think you're the next one up, unless we hear from babycatcher and tryingfortwo when they get back from vacation!
