Finally have a chance to update you all properly after returning home from Cape Town on Saturday night. Had tried yesterday but jet lag bit me in the bum!
Welcome to all the newbies! This place sure is a hive of activity at the moment
Wanted to wish Emski, Feather and January much baby dust this week as we prepare to get our long anticipated results!
To answer a question that was asked (sorry I forgot who) CFC recommend 12 day stays to cater for any slight changes to your cycle. And as January pointed out cycles can sometimes not go to plan. Ours did but we were still grateful to have the time to rest and relax. I have to say that this cycle has had me the most relaxed I have ever been in a cycle, which can only be a good thing!
AFM so far I have resisted testing early and will have a BT on Wednesday. TBH a part of me is scared of testing early and I just want to hold on to the idea that I am PUPO. As for symptoms - not much really except for some on and off mild cramping a bit like my period is about to start. With my OE cycles I always got my period right on time before I got to do a BT or stopped crinone, so far that hasn't happened so I guess that's a good thing?
I do have a question for the girls who BTDT- Elaine the nurse at CFC recommended the use Arnica Oil for helping with the bruising and swelling caused by the gestone. When I consulted Dr Google (I blame jet lag) it has mixed opinions about its use in pregnancy... It's made me nervous. I've stopped using it just Incase but now wonder why it was recommended?
