Dang straight, waiting to Ovulate :)

I wanted to start a thread for those of us in the first half of our cycles, and waiting to O. Are you waiting to O?

I am supposed to O in about a week, and I'm really trying to take some very proactive steps to give my follicular phase every fighting chance to hatch a good egg.

What do you guys do during this time (besides BD of course!!!)

I am going to do YOGA to keep relaxed and calm

Eat more fertility foods---avocados, pumpkin seeds, asparagus, black raspberry leaf tea, etc, etc

I am going to try with all my heart and soul to try to be happy and joyful and hopeful and positive now more than ever. I have been struggling with increasing anxiety and depression as the TTC journey grows longer, but I think that it is soooo very important for me to try to focus on my joy and worth as I am now, today, with all that I have (and not focus on what's missing.)

So here is our waiting to O room. Pull up a chair. Let me pour you some raspberry leaf tea. :)

Clearly I am not getting enough sleep ;)

My insomnia has been killing me.

I'd be getting something from the doctor to at least get some sleep during your FP or at the very least during AF.

Day 11:


I surged day 12 last cycle. Day 14 the cycle b4. So any day now.


My Acu told me to call my RE to have my lining checked again this cycle just to make sure I am on the normal track again. So I did and she said to come on in today. Oye! So I'm off to the RE.


Fingers crossed for good news about my follie and the lining....
