Well hello there! I am proud to report that there seems to be something trying to happen in my ovaries this week. This morning marks the second day in a row that have had what feels like bad period cramps ....but no bleed :0(. I am still encouraged that this is a sign that maybe the dust has cleared off the old endocrine system and it's getting the engines rolling? I wasnt able to get a reading from the fertility monitor this morning but found out why. The machine is working off of what my friends cycle was like. I need to figure out a way to clear out her information so that it will allow me to test on day 6 on through the end of a cycle. Even though I am not having cycles that is the only way I can trick the machine to ready my fertility so I can see if there is any difference from day to day. If I am going to try and catch the few eggs the doctors claim I have...I am going to need all the help I can get. I have started eating ground flaxseed in the mornings again. It is said to be a great things to eat while trying to improve your fertility. You have to grind it yourself though and can't eat it whole because your body can break the seeds down. I also decided to cancel the appointment with the kinesioligist I had this Friday. It was going to be $175.00 out of pocket and I just can't afford it right now. I will just wait for the reproductive endocrinologist to schedule me and then the appointment with the fertility specialist in May. For those of you wondering.....I decided not to start giveaways until May 1. Don't worry it will be worth the wait. Well I must get to work just wanted to give you a bit of an update. Hopefully the cramps turn into something more?? If not, they are enough encouragement for me. Here is a link to one of my favorite recipe sites. Today I have included links to St. Patricks Day inspired recipes (both food http://allrecipes.com/Recipes/Holidays-and-Events/St-Patricks-Day/Top.aspx and drinks http://allrecipes.com/HowTo/Toasting-to-St-Patricks-Day/detail.aspx. Happy hump day! And remember to smile no matter what, it makes you feel better.
