Hi all - sorry for the delay with the thread. I think i got everyone moved and updated. Congrats to the BFPs! YESSS! Please let me know if anyone is still in the wrong place.

 

I just had my apt with the naturopath and it was great I have a whole regimen of supplements and will have to take a few months off of trying again, so I am back over at waiting t be ready. But with a plan in place for healing, I feel closer than ever! We are working on supporting my nervous system, thyroid and ovaries. And apparently I have a myasm. And  gluten allergy! I always suspected.

Hormone Tone is the name. I think it is a Chinese remedy, it is not in it's original bottle so I don't know waht's in it but it has a strong odor, sort of like sauerkraut or garlic... I take it daily from after my period until I start again... Just for one cycle, I think. But I am on a slew of other things for other organ systems. I found Hormone Tone online, I am not certain it is the same... It has Maca, L Dopa and Damiana, among other things... She also put me on some enzymes to release protein toxicity from all the gluten over the years. It is a ton of pills altogether, but it should only be for a short while and then, G-d willing, I will feel so much better!

Good morning ladies! hola.gif

anyalily: Thanks so much for the new thread kiss.gif . Nice! Sounds like you have a great plan going thumbsup.gif . I tried searching and google only gave me computer terms lol.gif but what's a myasm? We tend to stay away from gluten here as well. I think more people than ever before are gluten intolerant. We definitely do way better when we stay away from gluten in our house! We tend to not eat too many grains and I feel absolutely amazing, especially compared to where I was before. With the way we treat our food for the last few decades, including the way we prepare it, as well as other factors like environment, plus the fact that we don't view our health in holistic terms, it's no wonder we're all out of wack hammer.gif . I hope your new regimen proves beneficial for you!

Welcome ultrafighter! Hope you're in and out of here smile.gif . Until then you can luxuriate in the awesome that is our company orngbiggrin.gif .

JustJenny I'm so hoping that this is going to be the cycle for you fingersx.gif .

I'm sorry marquess, I know limbo sucks. What are you doing to keep your mind off of the crazy of this situation? I know you said you're going to visit your DD for her 13th?

LilyKay: How many DPO are you? Damn TWW, bringing the nut.gif .

Hope your day is going well all! Spring is trying to creep in here but the cold is just laughing at the attempts, ha!

I did a little reading and it is actually spelled "miasm". If you google miasm and homeopathy you'll see it. It sounds a little woo woo, except the specific info she gave me about it sounded so so similar to my situation. I tend to think of these things as, this is just another language to describe imbalance. It is about stored trauma and responses in the body that can even be inherited...

Thanks, mamacatsbaby.  I feel more awesome already.  ROTFLMAO.gif

 

This past weekend was my first ovulation (I think...)  since we started trying, but I don't know exactly when I ovulated because it has been the weirdest cycle ever.  Because this is our first attempt, I didn't even think about really trying to track my body changes.  (can you tell we're really new at this?)  I know that I feel an ache every month on the left side when I ovulate, but this time I felt that ache even as early as towards the end of my last period and felt it off an on since then.  So I couldn't accurately use that signal.  eyesroll.gif  I didn't know anything about body temperature until this cycle, so I couldn't keep track of that.  I never paid much attention to mucus before, BUT I did learn about that early enough this cycle to pay attention.  Hopefully we took advantage of that in time.  It was sort of like "oh wow this is EWCM, we've gotta hurry!"

 

It really is out of our hands now....  I've still got 9 days until I expect AF, and I hate waiting so much.  gah!

Yipes. I guess I'm jumping feet first back into this thread after a lot of ambivalence about whether or not I was ready to have a second child. I think the Mothering pregnancy photo contest tipped me over the edge!

 

So, yeah. I'm a veteran of the TTC #1 in our 30s thread, now gearing up to TTC #2 in my 30s. DD is 22 months old.

 

My vow this time? To not obsess so much! Since AF returned when DD was about 15 months old, my periods have been regular and O has been fairly apparent thru mucus, so I think I'm going to stay away from temping and all that for a while.

 

I don't know if this month is a go, because DH is out of town till Sunday and I think I'll probably ovulate while he's gone, and even if I don't, my MIL is staying with us for a week and we have a small house...so.

anyalily: Found it! Heh, miasms don't sound any more woo to me than the idea of germs used to sound in the medical community, know what I mean? wink1.gif Many of my beliefs I'm sure others would consider wooish or 100% woo but oh well! lol I don't think that everything can be pinned down through science all the time. Don't get me wrong, science is truly beautiful, really connecting a lot of the dots out there and I love it, I just don't think it's the end of the road. I believe that in order to function to the best of our abilities we have to take care of mind, body, as well as spirit. For whatever reasons mind and spirit tend to be thought of as less important than body. I have no idea why since it seems obvious to me that it's all connected.

ultrafighter: Indeed, your powers of awesome are manifesting themselves as we speak! Use them wisely my dear, use them wisely Peace.gifROTFLMAO.gif . If you haven't picked up a copy yet, Taking Charge of Your Fertility would be a good resource to consider purchasing. It's an excellent rundown on our fertility, charting/temping, etc. Indispensable info! It's great for TTC and beyond. I do hope you guys caught that eggy though! dust.gif

Welcome Blanca! Hope your stay continues to be a mellow one. Short and sweet would be excellent of course smile.gif .

Have a great morning ladies! Wow, it it Thursday already?! dizzy.gif

Yes, yes it is Thursday.  And I'm thrilled because it's my Friday (I work four 10-hour days).  I'm going to try to be productive today, I swear.

Please move me to Waiting to O.  We might be trying this cycle, I can't decide to go ahead or to wait, but since it's CD1 today, I guess we've got some time to decide.  :)

Welcome BeautifulCanvas and tatooedmama! wave.gif

BeautfulCanvas: Yep, you've got time to just mellow out and tea6.gif .

Oh man, I'm sorry tattoedmama, limbo sucks disappointed.gif . In the February TWW thread we had one woman there that didn't get a positive for about two weeks after AF was due to fly in. Hope you know soon one way or another.
