Without much forethought, I noticed the day of my cycle yesterday, and this morning took an OPK. Remember when I said I wasn't going to do that this cycle? ha!
Oh well. I guess I'm still mildly interested in tracking ovulation and timing our efforts this month.
It was negative, btw. But tomorrow, I imagine you just may find me testing again.
And now, for some random ttc reports:
On the supplement front, I am noticing some increased acne, mainly on my chin, and more hair falling out - both of which were listed in the potential side effects of taking DHEA. Overall, it's tolerable.
Wondering if I would be wise to start taking progesterone. I saw the Mariah Carey interview with Barbara Walters the other night, and she mentioned that progesterone can reduce miscarriage by 50 percent. I have been thinking that since my temperature has a nice, high, sustained rise after ovulation, that indicates my levels are good. But maybe I'm wrong?
And sh/cm's sp.erm analysis came back yesterday. All looks well: the count was 40 million with about 50 percent motility, which I guess is pretty good. They didn't test morphology, though, and I'm wondering how big a role that can play. I did read that morphology is connected to count and motility, so that would indicate it might be decent, as well.
One final note: I started a new 8-week school session yesterday, and I love the teacher with whom I'll be working! He seems to have a great relationship with the kids and an active classroom management style. And the kids are more advanced and engaged with learning than the last school too!
