Stopping by for a belated update before I head out to run some errands.
On the ttc front, wondering if any of you have had the experience of your follicular phase shortening after going on any of the supplements I talked about in this post? I have consistently had a 27-day cycle, with a 13-day follicular phase followed by a 14-day luteal phase.
Until last month.
Last month, my follicular phase shortened to 11 days, and this month it was around 10! At least according to my basal body temperature charting, which showed a significant, post-ovulation rise yesterday on day 11. And I tested positive on an OPK the evening of day 10 (negative that morning).
I'm worried that this may be a "bad thing" and would love any feedback you may have to give.
In other news, sh/cm and I visited his brother and family in San Diego last weekend and he was surprised that we all got along so well right from the beginning. Not to inflate myself, but apparently the relationship between his family and his two exes was less than warm and close. So, of course, I feel great about that.
And best of all, it was a fun and generally relaxed time. Walks on the beach, a tall ship festival, two lovely home-cooked dinners with friends, hot tubbing. . . and sh/cm and I had some great deeper talks on the long car ride back (I slept a lot on the ride there because we left at 8 p.m., but that's another story!).
Finally, I started the new job. . . and survived the first day!
The kids were generally engaged and fairly well-behaved - except for a couple students in one of the classes but it wasn't too horrible. It definitely took stamina to get through so many class periods, but I kept reminding myself of the high hourly pay rate to keep me going!
If I can just get through this one day a week, I think I'll develop a lot professionally. And I can have a stiff drink at the end of the day! lol
