Possible TMI warning: Staying positive

Feeling crampy and miserable today.

My period is heavy and full of clots. I guess it's proof that my body was gearing up for something this month. Unfortunately it just wasn't enough.

I'm hoping that this odd cycle will have kickstarted another change in my luteal phase - maybe the magical 10 days is within reach!

That probably sounds more optimistic than I feel right now but I need to stay positive. Next month Mr will turn 44. By our own deadline, that's another year of trying before we give up and agree to be grateful for what we have.

I'm really not ready for that yet.


  1. I'm so sorry - sending virtual hugs

    For the short luteal phase thing I can totally recommend acupuncture - I have a 7 day LP so need something to make sure we have a fighting chance. With acupuncture I've had 2 babies that otherwise weren't going to happen (the needles can move my ovluation back by 7 days or extend my LP by 7 days) - seriously worth giving it a go

    And fingers crossed for next month

  2. just discovered your blog.

    Really sorry that it wasnt your month. I know how hard it is. It took over 2 years to get my second son and we had actually already agreed that we had no more fight left in us and would call it a day.

    I personally found it very tiring emotionally getting caught up in charting, temperature taking, ovulation kits, counting days, jumping into bed because the chart told me to etc.

    I relaxed alot after contacting Tums 2 Mums and using her relaxation and fertility MP3's.

    Good luck.

  3. Thanks for your supportive comments. I have been going to acupuncture for my back, and wonder if something that my acupuncturist did made a difference. Will ask the question next session - thank you.
    Will also go and look up Tums 2 Mums. I'm a "do-er", so I need to feel I'm making it happen somehow, even though I know luck is a huge factor.
