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. :)
