It Was Too Good To Be True....

This cycle felt different to me... Or so I thought. My BBT chart looked amazing up until this point. This morning I woke to a temperature of 97.27 which fell way below my cover line. I was hoping that this was a temperature that I could discard. I started spotting (more like a light flow) today around noon. I'm so sad right now. I started to have a glimmer of hope but now it's gone. :( I'm trying to look on the bright side because it's like a fresh slate but after 7 month how long can I trick myself to believe that this cycle is going to be it?

Let the "Two Week Wait" begin.....

I am so excited that my morning tempterture is still high. I anticipate every morning to find that it is still above my coverline on Fertility Friend's charting system. As of today I am on cycle day 22, 3 days past ovulation. That's right... CD19 was the big"O" day. I find myself double, triple checking when my DH and I did the BD compared to the day I "O'ed" and the temperture spike. Cross my fingers that this will be a good cycle.

My OPK showed two days with a positive!

It's been a long time coming but on cycle day 17 and cd 18 I had a positive on my digital Clearblue ovulation prediction kit. The test displayed a "smile" face and I was so excited! Now the trick is that I have to make sure that my timing is right on point and that there is a happy meeting *wink wink*.
Cross your fingers ladies... Where are you "O"?

Pre Natal Vitamin contents to look for....

So these prenatal vitmains are like Horse Pills and I have major gag issues. I was told that there were gummy prenatal vitamins that can be purchased over the counter but make sure that these measure up to the daily intake of vitamins that were doctor prescribed. I find that some over the couner brands lack the amount of iron or DHA.

I thought that this would help some of you of what to find what you need in prenatal vitmains.

Look for one that includes approximately:

400 mcg of folic acid
400 IU of vitmain D
200 to 300 mg of calcium
70 mg of vitamin C
3 mg of thiamine
2 mg of riboflavin
20 mg of naicine
6 mcg of vitamin B12
10 mg of vitamin E
15 mg of zinc
17 mg of iron

(The numbers can possibly change based on the additional information that I find)
