7 Weeks Later

I can’t believe it’s been that long since I last posted. I’m sure you thought I fell off the face of the earth. I have been busy with school and life in general. And when I do find time to go on the interwebs, I am usually just checking facebook or email.

Well, the last cycle was a bust. The natural progesterone cream did not bring on my period. I ended up calling my doctor for a Provera prescription. The last cycle was 65 days long. Hopefully this next one goes much better.

For those of you who like to see charts, this one is last cycle’s.

Here’s this month’s.

As you can see, I’m only seven days in. Still have my period. I took 5 mg of Femara on cycle days 3 through 7. There isn’t much to report.

I do have a serious case of dry mouth though. It really sucks. I’m probably drinking about a gallon of water a day and can’t seem to get any relief. I hope it is just a side effect of the Femara and goes away in the next few days.

Glad to be back. I’ve missed doing this.



I’m just sick feeling right now. I misplaced the Christmas card I received from my father-in-law. I cannot find it anywhere. It had fifty dollars in it. Stupid, stupid me. I know I brought it home with me but I don’t remember past that.

I wouldn’t be so upset about this normally. I am notorious for misplacing things. Normally I would just assume it will show up and it always does.

But I had big plans for this money. I had planned on purchasing some Femara online with it and doing an unmonitored cycle. I know I have been trying to get pregnant using herbal supplements. But now that my father’s health is worse, it just seems so important to get pregnant if (before) something happens to him.

I know this isn’t exactly the best option but when you are desperate and broke, things that you never would have considered become viable options.
