On to cycle 22

View Full Post

So, we have been trying to conceive our second child since january 2017, with mostly bad luck. When I look back at my cycles, one thing that strikes me are all the times I have seen a faint line turn negative within a few days. I don't know if they are "true" chemical pregnancies, or sometimes faulty tests. What almost everyone of my chemical pregnancies have in common, is the fact that the hcg rarely seems to get higher than around 25 for me. And my cycles turn to normal right away, as if nothing happened. I have been in contact with the fertility clinic and they wouldn't help me. The doctor told me outright that chemical pregnancies are nothing to be concerned about or cry over. She said that I'm still young and the odds are good - I will get pregnant eventually. Not exactly what you want to hear when you're wondering if somethings wrong with you. I understand that chemical pregnancies are normal, but I have a hard time believing that it's normal to have many of them and nothing's wrong.

Well, enough about that depressing subject. Now I want to focus on this new cycle. I'm still gonna temp and this will be my second cycle with maca. Last cycle I tried the raw powder. Not only did it taste really bad, I got really gassy because of it. This time I'm switching to capsules, which I hope will work better for me. So fingers crossed we will have better luck this time.

This morning it gave me a high reading. So I'm gonna test in a few hours to see if it's still nearly a peak or if it gets lighter. No significant temp rise yet.

A few days ago I increased my dose of maca to 2000 mg. I can really feel the effects of it and will absolutely continue to take it, whether or not it helps my fertility! Love the effect it has on my body when it comes to sex, the maca seems to enhance every feeling in my body. And I definitely didn't complain about our sex life before.

Yay for getting your Peak! I hope your temp rises soon to confirm you ovulated. I didn't know that bout the maca. Maybe after this baby I'll have to look into that. I have found that being pregnant has enhanced everything sex wise .

@FlamingoGirl13 - Yeah, I'm hoping for a temp rise soon too. Don't think it will be any later than 2 days from now. I'm actually positively surprised on the effects maca has had so far. Although it makes my ovulation pain a lot worse. Up until today it hasn't been that bad, but now it hurts.

My ovulation pain are gone and I'm left with a more sore feeling. The OPK are a bit lighter (not by much) and my temp did go up a bit, but so far not up to my post ov levels. But hopefully tomorrow.

Finally got my crosshairs. Now the real countdown begins. In an attempt to keep myself from testing before af is due, I created a page for it in my bullet journal. When all the puzzle pieces are coloured, then I can take a test. This time it means af will be 1 day late when I finish coloring all pieces.

@Beaut1ful38 - I really hope maca works well for me too.

4 dpo today and I'm already sick of the tww. I want it to be 15 dpo so I can test, unless af shows that is. Thought my current chart looked familiar and when I compared it to the pregnancy chart with my son, I understood why. Even though it doesn't mean shit, it's still fascinating. The green line is from when I got pregnant with my son and the purple is this cycle.

@KaylaStarMucha - Thank you. I guess this journal is a bit therapeutic for me, that's why I tend to comment almost every day.
