It’s that time again! Time for another update in TTC land. Last time I told you that I’d had two spontaneous periods, and I was hoping that I would continue on that road for this cycle. Well, that wasn’t the case. I started taking prometrium (natural progesterone pills) on cycle day 35, and just stopped taking them yesterday on cycle day 40. Monday I started my period! Woot! I’m excited and hopeful about this cycle because I get to review OVACUE! I started using it on Tuesday, and will have a full review up at the end of this cycle.
I am also taking soy isoflavones this cycle. They are supposed to be similar to clomid in that they help you to ovulate. I am taking them cycle days three through seven, and I’m hoping they work on the first try! I have heard horror stories from people who take them too long, so I don’t want to hurt my body in any way. (They can cause thyroid problems, but usually only in people who take them every day for a long period of time.)
As my prenatal vitamin, I’m taking a combination of Geritol Complete (pill form, not liquid) and a folic acid supplement. Geritol has the normal 100% daily value of folic acid. It just doesn’t have the additional folic acid needed by a woman who is trying to conceive or pregnant. And when I get pregnant I’ll switch to an actual prenatal.
I’m still making videos on my youtube channel for anyone interested in watching. I update more often there than I do here. I wanna know if any of the mamas here are currently TTC. If so, are you doing anything special? Let me know!
