Cycle 4 CD11

Not a lot to report really.  I did have watery cm yesterday so did a cheap opk and got quite a dark line which, for cd10, puzzled me a little!  I’m hoping the maca is helping to regulate my cycles and I’ll ov sooner this cycle but who knows!

An opk I did an hour ago is fainter than yesterdays but I think my wee was more diluted today.  No sniff of a smiley on the digi opk’s yet.

Still feeling fairly positive about this cycle, and hoping to ov in the next week and not when we’re camping again, although sod’s law says this will happen!

Cycle 4 CD4

I have picked myself up, dusted myself down and am ready to start again.

I have a new cocktail of vitamins and herbal supplements I’m taking.  I may start to rattle soon.  I’m now taking:

  • Folic acid
  • Agnus Castus (1600mg)
  • Evening Primrose Oil (2000mg)
  • Maca root (1500mg)

The maca root is a new one which, when googling, appears to be some kind of super supplement to help boost fertility and regulate hormones.

I have to admit that I’m feeling positive about this cycle again.  Lots of people say you’re super fertile after a miscarriage/chemical pregnancy so fingers crossed that’s true, and I’m hoping the maca works its magic.

At the very least I hope it brings ovulation forward a little.
