Ant, AF, Vitex, and TTC

Our Christmas was AMAZING and Ant was completely spoiled. Ant is doing much better.  We are down to just a few nebulizer treatments a day and he is finishing up his antibiodics.  His sleep if FINALLY starting to return to normal.  While he was sick he was waking up every 2hrs to nurse!!!  This equaled a VERY tired mommy.  Last night though he slept through the night.  I woke up at 6:00 wondering why he hadn’t woken up yet.

Well, AF has come and gone again.  It seems the vitex helped this cycle because ovulation was on day 15 and my luteal phase was 14 days long!!  Win for vitex and normalizing my cycle.  The plan is to stay on vitex as long as it lengthens my cycles.  As for cramps they weren’t nearly as bad as my previous cycle.  I am still confused as to why that cycle was so painful but who knows.  If it happens again I will call my OB if not, I will just wait for my annual appointment.

After having a rough month emotionally about TTC, I have concluded that temping is NOT my friend.  During my cycle I am constantly checking my chart and analyzing every temp.  It was very exciting making it to a 14 day luteal phase but it also gave me hope that we could have conceived.  So, for my sanity it is time to stop temping and just enjoy this next year with DH and Ant.  Big guy upstairs, I am leaving it up to you!

So much more to talk about but DH is waiting for me to watch a movie!
