It’s been a while since I updated you on our journey to conceive number 3. It hasn’t been an easy journey. It has certainly been one that has been toying a lot with my emotions. I went into trying this time thinking… more like hoping… that I’d be one of the lucky ones that finally got to experience what it was like to get knocked up in one shot! I wasn’t. We’re heading into a limbo. A limbo that is quite familiar to me.
- I’m taking Vitamin E supplements.Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to boost fertility in both men & women.
- I’ve increased my intake of folic acid.
- I’ve stopped taking Evening Primrose Oil from cycle day 1 to ovulation. While this helped with increasing the quality of my mucous, I’m weary that I may have been taking the EPO too far into my cycle. It may have been doing more damage than helping.
- I’m beginning to chart again. Something that I’m unsure of is if I’m ovulating. I want to monitor that. As much as temping drives me crazy, I’m going to do it. At least for this next cycle, I am.
