First thing - you will see my temp plummeted some more this morning. Looks like my LP is getting shorter (if I get AF today). I do hope it comes already so I can move on..

Jessica - yes that was the reason I wanted to take a break in the first place. Since then he's said he's not interested in going without me anymore and wants to "devote his life to me" it sounds cheesy doesn't it? I just don't know what to believe. It's not as if he was going all the time.. maybe once every 4 months or so. But the thing that cheesed me off is that I'm not supposed to go with him because it's "guys night" I don't want him to have "guys night" at a club! They can have it in a pub, or dinner, or playing video games or whatever. Pffffft So yes I have to figure out his intentions regarding that..

I'm going to have another talk with him tonight and try to figure this out. I will tell him how stressful it is .. and how lowering stress can help with TTC! And we will see.. if I do decide to take a break I don't know what form it will take. Thanks for all your suggestions, I am thinking of which route to go. I like the one where I should BD every other day around O time.. We'll see.


Sam and Saira thanks for the explanations on the boob pain. That estrogen dominance seems to make sense Sam.. it might explain why my temps have been going down earlier than before too. But on the other hand if I had lots of estrogen wouldn't I get more fertile CM? Because the estrogen surge is what helps with CM? Or do I just have estrogen dominance in my TWW? I really hope my hormones are not out of whack.. It's also been suggested that in reality my body is just adjusting NOW to going off BCP.
I've also been taking some new supplements.. like L-arginine and extra B complex. Maybe I will stop my supplements except for prenatals and just try to eat more veggies and fruit? I was also taking EPO pretty consistently pre-O. I think I forgot to keep taking it at some point but those days when I was taking it, it was about 1000-1500 mg a day.

Tashia - My BFF keeps telling me it will happen when I least expect it like when, when I'm 50?? I hope you get your BFP on this round of clomid but if not, then I hope you enjoy your break and that the lower stress helps you get your BFP

Melissa - yes I do feel pressured a bit. Not overtly like "why aren't you pregnant yet", nothing like that, but just the fact that he wants me to keep on doing it and shows me how upset he is when I get a BFN makes me feel pressured internally, KWIM? Usually he doesn't really show how upset he is and his reason for not showing me is that he doesn't want me to feel pressured (he's told me this).. so he's really trying to make sure I'm comfortable with everything. And he normally stays very positive ("don't worry hon, we'll try again").. But I have to talk to him about taking a break for sure..

Thanks Jess - yes my temp tells the story. I wouldn't mind being preggo in July or August - besides a Leo baby would be awesome But of course I wanna preggo asap

Sorry for the novel guys!

I wish all this wasn't so confusing. I also hate when we self diagnose and really do you think that a dr diagnosed me as estrogen dominant between my consistent low progesterone draws and endo diagnosis.... of course not! However, I have read a lot and it seems that the pill does cause a lot of cases of estrogen dominance and I was on it a long time. Plus endo is an estrogen dominant disease. Anyways enough of my rant.

I hope you get it all figured our

I am just waiting for AF but she's not here yet.. instead I got some creamy CM and some watery CM or something.. my temp went all the way down so I don't know what the hold up is.. come on already so I can move on!!

Guys I am taking next week off work - not really going anywhere, just hanging out.. any suggestions on how I should spend my time?? I'm gonna go to the spa for sure!! And get my nails done! Any other ideas? Go wild!!

I would totally like go rent a whole bunch of your favorite movies (or since they are your favorites you might own them) watch them and make yourself your favorite meal!!!! Just spoil yourself you truly deserve it!!!!

Sorry that your temp went down, but like we say on JM you aren't out till AF shows her face and i'm hoping that she stays away

It was great talking to you on chat last night!!!

I was going to say the same thing as Jacklyn, one of my favorite things to do when I need a break from things is to have a movie day. It's a good time for me to catch up on all the 'girl movies' my BF refuses to watch with me. Just watch all different movies all day long and be a total couch potato.

Yeah Sam, she showed..
I went for dinner after work and got a little drunk I think I deserve it. This sucks...
Now I'm just kind of sitting here.. checking JM and chatting.. a little buzzed.. with not much else to do all by lonesome self.

DH already asked me when I'm expecting to ovulate so he can do his part.. uggh I don't even care anymore

Jacklyn and Melissa, I like your ideas I will definitely try that

I think the only good thing about getting af is drinking!! Good for you for getting buzzed-- I tell you if af shows you KNOW that is exactly what I will be doing.

I hope the witch leaves you soon and knows this time she better stay away!!

Tashia - yay for taking the week off also!! What are you planning to do with the time?

Sam, I found some red raspberry tea and it is delish!

Jacklyn, thanks!

So today is DH's birthday!!! I went shopping for him and bought a nice Nikon camera. I hope he likes it!! Plus it takes great macro pics so I can get clear shots of my peesticks :giggles:
We're supposed to go out for dinner tonight. I hope he's not too tired! He was helping his dad move all day.. and to tell the truth, I'm pretty tired too from the shopping.

As I mentioned above, I'm drinking red raspberry leaf tea which is supposed to help with lining. I wonder if that's been my problem.. in any case it tastes great. I'm just reading up on it to see what effects it has. I read a snippet that says it can increase estrogen levels.. I hope that won't be a problem!

Ok I hope you're all having a great weekend!!

Happy Birthday T That's a great gift Judy-- can't wait to see those super clear closeup pics of your BFP!!

I know what you mean about the possible estrogenic effects of Red Raspberry Leaf-- however I don't think they have any conclusive evidence to say it does raise it so I am sticking with it even though estrogen is my new worst enemy.

I hope you both find the energy to have a fabulous dinner-- if not have some fun anyways

Hey Judy!! Hope you are feeling better! Sometimes a little break can go a long way especially if you are feeling stressed! A spa trip and some yoga might help you relax! I REALLY hope this all ends with your BFP very soon!!!!!

DH's birthday weekend was great We went for dinner and dessert on Saturday and saw a movie last night

Tashia, I'm pretty much going to work out a lot, go to the spa, shop, rent some movies, and pretty much whatever I feel like Today is a holiday here so not much is open, but thank goodness the gym is!
I really want to tone up.

I don't know whether AF is gone yet.. still seems to be there a bit. I hope she goes soon!
