Ok, you girls know that I generally answer questions, check out charts, cheer for BFP's, etc. but I usually don't post much about my own cycles. They've gotten kinda wacky and with us not doing MA or anything, it's all kinda gotten a bit low key.

Well, I actually feel like I have reason to post about a cycle!! Months back, my mom went down south to visit family. While there, she was asked about me, how I was doing, etc. She shared that we were TTC and having a bit of trouble.

Someone said "She needs some Lydia Pinkham!" , right?

My mom :headsmack: and was like "I can't believe I forgot all about that! I haven't heard that name in forever!" Still , right? I know!

So she comes home and tells me all about this stuff. How it's been around since 1875 and all the ladies used to take it if they had trouble getting pg when she was a little girl. The slogan was 'A baby in every bottle'. So she goes to Amazon, finds it and orders the liquid and the tablets for me.

I never started taking them because I was doing acupuncture and Chinese herbs and I didn't wanna scre with what my Dr was doing... But since my O day has been getting really late (CD 20-24) since I've been going natural, I figured I'd give them a shot.

Yesterday morning I woke to super low temps and full ferns on my saliva-scope! On CD 14!!! I DEFINITELY felt tenderness on my left ovary during BD last night and some sharp surging sensations as I was waiting to fall asleep.

Today, my cervix is super high and soft, I had partial ferns and my temp popped up. It's still kinda low, but my temps have been really nice and low all cycle... with the exception of CD 12, which still wasn't that high, but it was the highest since AF left.

So, I'm not sure if today's temp is the beginning of my shift or not... But I'm super excited that my body seems to be doing normal things on a normal CD!!

I just had to share!!

I know you've been having some nutty cycles lately, so rather than express my feelings in words, I'll just express them in smilies!

Wow I've never heard of that Nikki! I'm praying this makes a difference for your cycle, I do remember when you started your charts were much more consistent and in a good way so if this gets you back there that's amazing! Let's hope there's a baby in your bottle!

My temp is up! It looks like I O'd on frackin' CD 14!! You know how long it's been since I've O'd on CD 14?!?!?
I'm like... over here!!

I did decide to "discard" CD 12's temp. It's an early enough CD that the temp doesn't actually mean anything to the rest of my chart and it makes for much easier reading. I didn't "delete" it, so the day's data is still there...

No more Lydia Pinkham for this cycle. I still have 3 days worth left, but even though I haven't gotten my CH's yet, with the way my chart looks... I think I have O'd and I don't wanna mess about.

Crystal!! I can't wait for you to get it and try it! I hope it works for you like it has for me! I'll be completely honest... I wasn't picture perfect with this stuff initially. I only started taking it on CD 4 and I wasn't even taking the full dosage. I was only taking 1 pill, maybe twice a day...? Then I actually the bottle! It seems to have kicked my body into gear really quickly!!! I'll DEFINITELY be taking it again!!

While we didn't BD a lot... we did have some GREAT on the day that mattered and the day after, so I'm praying it's enough!!

I've gotta stop reading about this stuff!! It's making me

I keep finding story after story of women who took it for a month and got a BFP! Hell, one woman said she TTC her first with no luck, heard about LP, took a bottle, got a BFP... Tried for her 2nd for 8 months with no luck, took another bottle, got a BFP!!

It working FAST seems to be a recurring theme, which I feel like I can attest to since it seems to have kicked my ovaries in the butt in only 10 days!
