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.

Last cycle I experienced an early loss. Given my state of mind, I just decided to take a month off to refresh and relax. The last thing I want is for this to be a stressful journey. If, and when, I happen to get pregnant with number 3… this will probably be our last baby. Notice I said if. So I want to enjoy this journey as much as possible. 
I’m heading into my ninth cycle with a fresh perspective. I’m counting my blessings. I have two beautiful children at home. So really… I’m okay if a 3rd doesn’t happen. Would I love to have a 3rd? Yes. Is it the end of the world if I can’t? Of course not. It would be upsetting, but nonetheless I would get over it. 
I switched up my game plan this month:
  • 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.
So there you have it. Not the update I’m sure most were hoping for, but I’m not giving up hope! If it’s meant to happen, it will… in time.
