Daddy-daughter time; CD1

Hubster got home before Seedling went to bed. She was all set to go to bed in like 10-15 minutes but she was SO EXCITED to see him I had to let them play (since she normally only gets to see him on the weekends) and it was truly delightful and heartwarming to see how much she lit up, giggling and engaging with him. She went to bed an hour late and I don’t care one bit. ❀

As I was prepping for bed myself I discovered in the bathroom that my period has started. I paused, waiting for grief or anger to wash over me. But truly, I'm fine. I knew it was a long shot that I'd get pregnant that easily. If anything this will give me an opportunity to really do a better job of tracking it. Even though my BBT may not be super accurate I'm thinking if giving it a shot. Can't hurt, right? πŸ™‚ good thing I bought those pads earlier this week "just in case"! πŸ˜‰

  1. Good job listening to your instincts, rather than an arbitrary schedule! :).

    Seems like that was a really short literal phase – May want to drastically increase your B6.


    • Luteal phase – dyac!!


      • I knew what you meant πŸ™‚
        B6, hu? I hadn’t heard to try that one before. My luteal phase has always been a bit on the short side, closer to 12 days instead of 14. But yes, if I did indeed ovulate on Monday, that’s just 4 days (????) so I also recognize I could have been totally wrong about when I ovulated. And since this is my first period since giving birth, that could be a factor in the wonky ness as well.

    Well, yes, but you seemed on with the cervical fluid, etc.And it can’t *hurt* to add B6. πŸ™‚ Have you ever read “Taking Charge of Your Fertility”? I can’t remember if we’d discussed that before or not. It’s full of useful information about these sorts of things. Let me know if you haven’t read it and want me to loan my copy to you – I’ll send it.


    • I do own a copy, it is h


    • I do own a copy, it is how I figured out my cycle was wonky within 6 months so I saw a fertility specialist. I should re-read it… I will pick up some B6. I also think my weight was a factor in the past, I really do need to drop about 30 lbs or so (if not more, but I’m trying to set a realistic goal!) and that should help as well πŸ™‚

      I wish you lived close, I would love to sit down over tea, I miss you!!!
