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. :)

Boo Hiss, the witch has arrived.


I am officially in the 2ww waiting for the 2ww ;) so I thought I'd pay this room a visit.


Good news is, I've known all along that this cycle wasn't it so I am just relieved to be back at the beginning.

Aw Jeanne, sorry the witch arrived. Dang!!!!!

Well, good luck to all. I am supposed to O something this weekend or Monday...but now that I found out DH has messed up sperm shape, I am not hopeful any of those swimmers will be able to make it into an egg, even if I hatched one. dang it.
