    @ddo: Yes, I tried TCM. Although, some came in form of tea, roots in jar, powdered form and formulated pills. Will never take them again. :wacko:
    Your story got me like… :-( :-( :-(
    Your are right, leaving the house on an empty stomach without having plans or meals already prepared is a disaster. Just as @oluwakemine said Caloric damage which implies Your body will grab all it can form the cookie&coke and will find it difficult releasing unwanted elements or utilising the energy well because it thinks you will starve them again and again. So its hold on to the cookie&coke pending the time you don’t starve them again. :yes: So watch your steps.

    Hello Ladies, How are you all doing?
    Woke up this morning and feeling not so good even though I slept well but I think its the side effects of those pills, thank God today is the last day :yahoo: .
    The next in line are the injections which I think I might start on either Sunday, Monday or Tuesday If everything goes as planned but yeah…I know PCOS has its own mind as well :wacko: hence the 3days which I think its fair enough so I won’t be anxious, disappointed or feeling sad.
    However, due to my loneliness yesterday :dohh: I came up with this; hoping you all will like it… :blush:

    This words keeps ringing in my ears: NOT EVERY DOOR IS LOCKED. PUSH!!!

    And Here is a word of thought/encouragment to everyone expecting a child:

    Sometimes in tragedy we find out life’s purpose and the eye sheds a tear to find its focus.

    Wishing you all a pleasant weekend ahead.

    :dust: :dust:   :dust:

    Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Mine was pleasant…cuddling, sleeping, eating and watching TV.

    Woke up with lots of work on my desk… :-( Coupled with lots of decisions to make.

    **Fast forward…**

    Taking decisions.
    I finished my pill on Friday with the hope that AF will show up fully ASAP so I can commence with my injections third day into AF visit; although prior to finishing the pill, I had little spotting on thursday after baby dancing which didn’t progress after few minutes.

    **Long story short…**
    Today: I started with the injections this morning using previous experiences…calculated Sat as day 1, Sun as day 2, and today(Mon) as day 3… :yes: I just hope I am doing the right thing. Well my mind tells me I am doing something right but something is fishy somewhere.

    Something is fishy: Normal is relative and trust me sometimes we have to customise situation to fit normal…I don’t know if I am making sense. :unsure:
    For the past 6years…After having an OCP AF shows us with vengence this is the life I was used to and always hoped for, but this cycle seems different…things tends to progress slowly( Or maybe I am the one been too anxious :unsure: ).

    Really don’t know why but I know all things works together for good.
    Will be calling the clinic today and making an appointment for Friday…Fingerscrossed and I know things are going to be just fine. Hoping for the best…stick! stick!! stick!!! :spermy: :blue: :pink: :yellow: :yahoo:

    Todays appointment went well…Nothing unusual as I am not at all surprised with the results of the ultrasounds and blood work.

    Although, I have some embies left from previous cycles (Keeping them) but this cycle is quite ”slow” but in all my doctor is so positive for this cycle which is quite shocking. Maybe she saw a vision… :baby: :unsure:

    Results: No signs of follicles growing yet but myself and doc. knows a miracle can happen in the weekend due to past experiences. However, I have been scheduled for another appointment on tuesday but well equipped for the weekend. ;-) Added to the weekend errand is also an increase in dosage of all injectables.

    Wishing myself all the best and success to everyone on the track of TTC.
