I am ready to go. My period is done and I am off the 3 month estradiol and progesterone combo. My doctor gave me the green light to start. Wow, can you believe that..I can start! Whoo hoo! I mean, I love sex, but wow, the green light to try to have a baby is a more than added plus!
I got my ovulation test kit ready and started testing on Monday. So far, just 1 stripe. I kind of have a faint second one, but I know that I need to wait for it to be dark. I am super excited, but knock on wood, I need to really take a step back. I don’t want to get overly excited and end up stressing myself out. Just like what everyone’s been telling me, I should just let it happen. Easy to say, if you’ve been where I have been.
As far as preparing myself, I have been reading up online a lot and started months ago. I started taking folic acid. I am taking 800 mg but I know that I already get it in my foods. I’ve also stopped drinking caffeine. I used to love tea and energy drinks, but those had to go. Too much caffeine can surprisingly cause infertility or miscarriages. I’ve also cut down on eating tuna and sashimi. Gosh, I love that stuff, but I hear mercury is really bad. I was watching an episode on Dr. Oz, and he said that the mercury actually stays in your body for quite some time. I don’t want to contaminate my body. Speaking of contamination, I’ve been drinking a lot of water. I know it’s hard to get in 8 cups a day, but I figure 6 cups is good, and then all the food that you eat that contain water.
I am very excited yet trying to keep it cool. Please send me your positive baby making energies, everyone.
