, for the tip on the Keeper--I think I will try it. It so interesting that the different materials could make that big of a difference! Or is there also something different about the design? Seems worth trying in any case! Also thank you for sharing some of your experience with the Wondfo OPKs. I feel like I'm already paying better attention to my signs & learning something (as in, I'm probably not ovulating as early as I think I am, at least some of the time). And I totally think I may have a nutritional deficiency behind my thyroid--I have some iodine in my diet but since switching salt to a more natural sea salt, we don't have iodine from that source.
Oh, I hope you really find something in terms of work that you will enjoy (or at least find fulfilling) & that fits with your schedule. It so hard to find something that fits well with the school schedule, but I'm sure the right thing is out there for you! I am crossing my fingers big time for you during your TWW!
, weird that we've all had problems with the Diva!
& I'm sorry for your loss. Hugs! It sounds like you have made some amazing progress in taking control of your health! Congratulations on that--it's no small task. But I completely understand the frustration of not feeling your body is healthy *enough* despite all the hard work. I hope that you can give your spirit & your body the time & space they need to heal. I can't speak to the nursing when TTC (though it sounds like onebabysmom has giving you some good advice) but I am sure that this was not your fault or the caused by anything you did or didn't do--the overwhelming majority of early losses are genetic mix-ups. I know that does not help with the emotional piece but I hope it helps a little with the TTC piece--all we can do is move forward & hopefully have better luck & make even better choices. Good luck charting! I'm charting full-force this cycle, which I haven't done for a while, so I'm right there with you! I agree with DungeonQueen that it can be stressful, so I hope you are able to get the information you need & not get stressed out over it! (Interesting to hear about DIM, I'll have to look into it more. I'm almost 38 & my cycles seem to be getting wonkier, so I could use all the help I can get... Though my current doctor--a recurrent loss specialist--has forbidden me from adding new supplements but if we don't get a viable pregnancy soon I think I'll be open to adding something new!)
Welcome to you, too,
. I'm very sorry for your loss & sorry for the frustration you have experienced since. I imagine that such a late loss brings unique pain & I hope that in the year and a half since your loss you have experienced more light than pain. I truly hope that you do not have to wait much longer!
I am waiting to O. I'm CD 10. Last cycle was 27 days & it was 29 days before that... No real idea of when (or if) O happened since I wasn't temping or using OPKs. I am so paranoid about missing my LH surge with the new OPKs (I just can't plan & hold my pee or stop from drinking for hours at a time in the middle of the work day!) that I've been testing 2-3 times a day for the past 2 days even though it's a bit early. Still I had some fertile looking CM & even a tiny bit of spotting, which normally would indicate O, so I'm learning that my secondary signs can be deceiving! I'm learning!
