So i’ve been on this medication that’s basically progesterone the last two weeks of my cycle. i’ve been taking it for a few months and have been having “regular” cycles meaning i *cough* (you know) once a month. the purpose of being on this medication is because my hormones are out of whack and when you don’t cycle normally you don’t ovulate. When you don’t ovulate, you don’t *ahem* cycle shall we say. Then things just kinda build up over a period of time. (no pun intended – really!) anyway, taking this medication is basically just to keep things flowing (omg, that slipped too) so to speak until this summer when i planned to start taking medication to help me ovulate. Now let me tell you, i’m not one of those people who get hung up on popping pills or get every side effect listed on the bottle and them some. I just take as directed and move on with my life. Well, these little yellow pills kick my ass. They make me dizzy and then sleepy. Once i’m asleep, i’m out for the count and wake up very tired. So, i try to take them early enough in the evening to not be tired when i wake up, but because they make me dizzy, it’s no fun.
anyway, i told you all that to tell you this. last week was mid-cycle and i felt a little weird. i hadn’t started taking the progesterone yet and i knew it was way off to be starting a cycle. my irregular cycles are always longer, not shorter. so, i thought hmmm, maybe i’m ovulating? probably not, but maybe. So i took an over-the-counter ovulation test and OMG I WAS OVULATING!!! i was so excited i did cartwheels! ok, not really but i really was that excited. So, we’ll see. I didn’t tell my hubby cuz he gets all tweaked out when you say anything about anything even remotely having to do with women’s cycles. but, hopefully, some carefully planned chukka-chukka will result in a baby. i’m not getting my hopes up though. it’s not guaranteed. just cuz you ovulated doesn’t mean you’ve conceived.
Say a prayer for me though. i’m really hoping!!! (but not really)
