Oh the relief!

EWCM!

On CD13!

No, I'm not explaining those terms. If you know, you know. If you don't, well, tough.

But man, am I relieved. Things must be getting back to normal. I can't tell you how many times I have wondered over the last few months if I'd given myself PCOS or something from gaining weight and taking that darn DHEA for so long. I kept arguing with my acupuncturist that something must be permanently wrong with me because I'd had three full cycles with late ovulation and wacky luteal phases. She kept saying it was just residual stuff from the IVFs, but three whole cycles? I mean, how long does this stuff mess you up for? And, if it really does mess you up that badly, what is the effect on pregnancies conceived from IVF?

The good news, though, is that this is now my third cycle with lots and lots of lovely EWCM. I never used to have much before, and always would either have to go digging to look for it, or would have to rely on the nurse telling me I had it when she was doing the IUI. So I think one herb or other that I am taking has been having a positive effect.

So, anyway, the upshot is that I should have my LH surge today or tomorrow, I hope, and then we are set for starting the estrogen and ganirelix. AND I'm in a good mood. Life can't be all bad, eh?
