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. :)

I KNOW Susan, how'd we get sooo off schedule?!


So good appt overall. I have several follies, 2 which look like they could both ovulate. Thank U acupuncture. She said she would be happy to see that result after clomid with a 40 year old. She also thought it looked like I would ovulate on Sunday or Monday not tomorrow. So good news there.

Jeanne,

You live right by me (TO right?) I think. I'm in Ventura. If I end up needing an RE I might want your referrals!

Yeah, my tomatoes are not ripening...someone told me today the average temp this month has been lower than it was in January. And its not likely that we will get a heat wave at all either.

Global warming = more moisture in the air = more marine layer and this weird cool summer. That's one theory anyway.

It's cool you know the REs in SB area too...I work there just a couple blocks from the hosoital and med center there, so try to arrange all my doctor stuff tup here.

I would be up for a playdate for sure!

Jeanne,


this all sounds great and your RE sounds like they will waist no time which is great.
