Trying anything new this month?

DTD every second day of the whole cycle. Increased DH's zinc and B vitamins, also had him start a C in conjunctions with the zinc.

I've increased EPO and started drinking 3 red raspberry leaf tea per day. I am also taking SI this cycle to see if I can bring about a more normal period. I have read about 50/50 on SI increasing uterine lining and 50/50 on it decreasing uterine lining. I'd do anything to see a normal AF this cycle. I'm on CD 4. AF this month was spotting day one, I used one tampon day two, and spotted day three. I'm going to update my TTC #1 journal hopefully this evening with the story of my once normal AF.

I know it's only cycle number two but this AF thing has me kinda worried.

Favorite thing about summer:

EVERYTHING. We are still in spring phase here. We've had ok weather for about a week now and I LOVE it. DH has plowed me up a nice little garden, I've started my first ever flower beds, and I've been walking with the dogs every day!

We don't have a barbecue but I'd love to get one and have some burgers on the grill! Bring on the even hotter weather!

Trying anything new this month? Right now I'm on EPO, but assuming it doesn't work, this may be the month I call for an RE referral! Not sure how I feel about that one, but...it is what it is!

Favorite thing about summer: Being warm, long walks in Central Park, eating outside at restaurants, and NO MORE SCHOOL!

Trying anything new this month?

Once AF shows and goes in mid May, we will officially be TTC for our first cycle

Favorite thing about summer:

If you've been in Texas during the summer, you know there isn't much you LOVE about summer. It gets HOT! The one thing I do enjoy is that the pool season is longer.

Trying anything new this month? I don't know yet.... DH is getting a physical and hopefully SA scheduled. Probably another appointment for me to find out what the doc thinks the next steps are gonna be.

Favorite thing about summer: Everything. I love the heat, and even the humidity. Shorts, flip flops, sitting outside on the porch with a a refreshing beverage and reading a book or watching the sunset. Got my first sunburn of the season today while working on my garden, so my farmer's tan is off to a great start! I LOOOVE SUMMER!!!!!
