Thanks to everyone for your supportive comments last night and this morning. Honestly, hearing my phone beep and getting to roll over in my bed of self-pity and read a bit of support here, a virtual hug there… it got me through the night.
I only had light spotting throughout the night last night, so today I’m going to call CD1. I just really don’t want to associate Halloween with that. However, November equals a new dedication to THIS. I’ve been crazy busy with work, and I really need to re-prioritize. I need to talk to my boss about always having at LEAST one day off a week, if not two (7 nights/week is killing me & my marriage). I need to get my Realtor stuff organized, my house organized, my eating/exercise back on track, and I might actually put in my two weeks notice at the church. I’m just overwhelmed with work right now and that needs to stop. I slept for 11 HOURS last night (only waking up at 5:45 to temp). Insane.
I’m also going to take a step back from the blogs. I’m still reading a lot from my BB, and that makes it hard for me to comment. I’m tired of feeling guilty for not being able to comment, so in advance, I’m still following your journeys, even if I’m not commenting as much. I’ll do my best if you’re in a hole like I was last night to step back onto the computer to comment though – the love and support I get from all of you when I truly need it means so much to me, and I wouldn’t want to not return the favor.
So there ya go – my last cycle was 41 days (UGH, long again) with a 12 or 13 day LP (not too bad). I didn’t test my progesterone levels 7dpo this cycle. Life was just too busy, I didn’t feel like paying the $75 out of pocket, I wasn’t sure which day I ovulated on since I missed a temp in there, etc… BUT, at least I did ovulate at some point.
I’m going to stick with just the acupunctures and herbs this cycle. I’m going to try to get more centered in my life. I’m also going to be more thankful for what I have – that’s what November is all about, right?
