Hi Mel. Welcome
Lovable glad to hear your going well and progesterone is good.
HI Nic, glad that camping was fun! Glaf AF stayed away too but she rears her ugle head this week!
Lilmuffin, I also have really bad O pain on the day but not so bad that I have to lay down. I get really bad gas and sever constipation and a pain in my ovary that makes it hard for me to sit down. You poor thing . Hope you missed the egg this time around ...
Tiggerfields, even though you don't think you caught the egg, you have
AFM, I'm currently CD12 and hoping to O in the next 7 days. I am doing OPK's daily just to make sure I don't miss it and SMEP is going well actually .. DH is very happy
I went to a naturopath on Saturday and I'm soooo glad I went! TMI alert ...
I explained my history and I also explained my LMP to her (I bleed brown on day 1 and only spotting but my first period after D&C day 1 was agonizingly painful with cramps so bad I had to breathe through them and blood was bright red and pouring). She's fairly certain from my description and the fact that I had symptoms identical to my first pregnancy, that I conceived but due to the D&C believes that there was not enough lining for implantation and so I miscarried very early. I suspected this was the case but so glad to have it confirmed by a medical specialist. Well not confirmed per se, but I believe her as I know in my gut that is exactly what happened.
She also found apart from a quite sever deficieny in vitamin D, I am also severely deficient in iron and zinc! Who would have though?? Turns out those 3 are vital for carrying and sustaining a healthy pregnancy. She has put me on vitamins specifically for those deficiencies so we shall see how I go. During my first pregnancy I had a very rapid weight gain of 10kg's in a very short span of time and haven't been able to get it off. Naturopath explained this was a hormonal imbalance and we are taking actions to correct that also. The zinc and iron deficiency also largely contributed to my weight gain and my inability to take it off despite regular walking and zumba sessions. Just so glad we're getting some answers!
Anyways, fingers crossed I o very soon and we catch that beauitiful egg
