I had a late night working last night and a super busy day with work appointments (one that ended up lasting almost 4 hours!). So this interfered with my mission today…I find taking most of the supplements tough because I have to take them so long (at least 3 hours) after I take my Synthroid in the morning. I missed my window today.
SUPPLEMENTS: 5 shots wheatgrass
(Thanks, Mina, for your comment re: folic acid – that’s how much my prenatal contains. The last RE I quit – Dr. Beehive – mentioned something about needing to increase it…she cited some study. I was so offended by my appointment with her, I didn’t pay much attention to what she said about folic acid)
GOOD FOOD: blueberries, a little cereal (my breakfast was interrupted), 2 hardboiled eggs, red grapes, half an apple, 1 avocado, a raw garlic clove, juice of 1/3 lemon, a carrot, quinoa cooked in beef broth, roast chicken, microgreens salad (pea shoots, daikon radish, red choi, buckwheat and shungiku)
WATER INTAKE: Approx. 30 oz + counting
EXERCISE: 30 minutes dog walking (we missed out on our afternoon walk due to the 4-hour appointment!)
SELF-CARE: Morning coffee, evening tea and cookies, made acupuncture appointment with Yu MIng for Friday
OBSERVATIONS: Energy continues to be good. CM has almost totally dried up, though, it seems…the little I do see is still clear so that is promising – if it starts to look yellow, I think that might mean the infection has resurged….I’m VERY nervous about this. What if I can’t kick this thing? I’m really scared of the possibility that Mr. H and I won’t be able to get rid of it and that there won’t be anything more we can do…trying not to let it keep me up at night. I have noticed abdominal cramping and lower back cramping this evening…I had lower back pain last week, too, prior to my “no follicle ultrasound”…I’ve seen some women reporting a no follicle u/s online and the doctor has told them that they must have just ovulated and that’s why none were visible. But in the past I think there have been other follicles visible even after one egg has been released. I have found some hopeful stories on the high FSH boards of women who had no follicles one month and then more follicles returned later…I am thinking that in a few weeks I will go see Dr. Click Clack and request a swab and ultrasound and *maybe* a blood test, just to see what is going on.
From time to time on my old blog, I used to mention seeing my future baby girl’s name in various places…in the past week, I have seen it 3 times (the name of an apartment building, the name of a company, and the name of a car…two of these were this afternoon). When I see it, I get a funny feeling I can’t describe. Like I am receiving a message. I know it’s strange, but it just doesn’t feel like simply a coincidence that has no meaning.
Thank you all for hanging around with me here in limbo. 🙂
