Ooops!

I didn't realize it'd been a month and half since my last post! I knew it'd been a few weeks, but geez... where have I been?

I wasn't ovulating in my 2nd cycle of clomid, and I forced myself to stop blogging/journaling because I starting feeling a "pressure" to get pregnant, to produce results. Silly, I know, but that's how I felt.

Long story short, I did ovulate on CD33 then. I had been drinking grapefruit juice to help with my CM until about CD19, and I'm going to go on the theory that it delayed my ovulation. Apparently grapefruit inhibites the breakdown of estrogen in the liver, and apparently I'm sensitive to that. Very sensitive. It makes sense, because I had an 11 week cycle last winter when I was eating grapefruit nearly every day, and all the cycles before that were closer to 6 weeks. No more grapefruit for me... and I like grapefruit :(

So I started my 3rd cycle of clomid, same dose, same days. Ovulated on CD17! Yay =) We used preseed this cycle, and I used the Equate brand of tussin to help my CM. Ok, actually it wasn't for my CM, it was because I was congested for over over 10 days, but it happened to be around O time and I did notice some EWCM!

This weekend I'm going to give up the thermometer, and we're travelling next week, coming home the day AF is due, maybe the day after. So we'll see how it goes!
