Today I am feeling a bit tired of the whole ovulation tracking thing! I am thinking of giving it a rest for a while and just going with the flow. With all the different methods we have done, we still don’t really know when I ovulate. We have a pretty good idea but nothing concrete. So, as long as we stay aware of a rough area of time within my cycle, that is good enough for now!
Of course, next cycle I may feel refreshed and want to start trying to track it again but for right now, I need a break!
I’m still taking all my tabs and going for the tests. Still going to the acupuncturist and doing mostly (!) all the right things.
Last night was the biggest challenge of all in regards to no alcohol. We went out to a friends for a bbq. All good. I brought my de-alcoholised wine and drank that along with water. No problems!
… out came the 22 year old Port that we had given this friend a year ago. Oh no! It smelt divine. I could imagine it’s delicious flavour swirling around in my mouth. I smelt it from D’s glass and want to curl up in ecstasy!!
It was the ONLY time not drinking alcohol has been really really really mean!!!!! :) :)
So, we made a deal that should I get another period, I will treat myself to some of this beautiful port! mmmmmmmm…
I’m enjoying the lots of vegies aspect to the fertility diet from You Can Pregnant Over 40, Naturally. My favourite snack is now celery with almond spread. The idea comes from my naturopath and works perfectly with Sandy’s advice on nutrition.
