No Bambino

I started my period last Thursday, four days earlier than expected. I'm not sure why that happened. I thought the Luteal phase was always the same!? Mine was 15 days during my last unmedicated cycle, this time it was 11! I know that's not good or at least it doesn't help with implantation. I thought I was going to be upset when/if I started my period, but I wasn't. I was actually happy that I had my shortest cycle ever... 41 days!

I did some more research on the Luteal phase however, and there were some possible reasons. Either, my progesterone (p4) levels dropped too much or I ovulated earlier than my chart says.
Here is the website for my chart:

In any regard, through research I found some more things I could do to help with my pcos. This cycle I am going to try adding natural P4 cream. I read that most PCOSr's are low or deficient adding it to your 2ww is very helpful. It helps create a better lining, can lengthen your luteal phase, and help regulate your cycle. Here are some good articles:

I went to mothers market (a health food store) and purchased the most popular brand they had there, with the help of an employee.

The other thing I read about was the benefits of taking baby asprin (81 mg). It helps thin out the blood and increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, helps increase uterine lining and prevents miscarriages... plus its good for your heart!

Loving life again...

I haven't written in here in a while. Why? Because I am too busy loving life again! My stress levels have gone waaayyy down. I feel great. My energy is back up too!

Since my last post, I have seen my accupuncturist, Teri Carrick, 4 times. Each time I have relaxed a little bit more and the last two times I fell asleep! It is very relaxing. When I am laying there I pray. For the first time I actually prayed for God to heal me from PCOS... there's a thought! Why didn't I think of that before!? Did I not think that the ultimate healer had the power to do such miraculous things!? Well, I realized that I never gave my fertility, or infertility, over to Him. I was carrying this burden on my own! It really took a toll.

When I need to give something to God, a burden I can no longer carry, I picture the cross. I picture me pushing a heavy bag with, for example, FERTILITY, written across the front of it. I was doing this daily for a while. Its a constant battle. Then one day, I was envisioning this scene and I saw God's hand come down and pick up my bag! I have never scene that before. I feel like it was God telling me, "I got it Sara, you can let go now." It was an awesome feeling.

So, what I'm doing now... eating a 40/30/30 clean diet natural of unprocessed foods, working out 6days/week (cardio, weight training, core training, yoga), going to acupuncture once/week, taking Chinese herbs twice/day, Vitex tincture 3 times/day (helps regulate cycle), drinking red rasberry leaf tea (helps tone the uterus and regulate cycle) twice/day, eating goji berries (good quality eggs), taking a prenatal, evening primrose oil (helps soften cervix and produce good CM), and eating lots of healty, omega 3 fats! Geeze that sounds like a lot! hahaha... But, this is a holistic approach. All of this is healthy. I am not masking my symptoms with some western medicine drug. I feel better, I am happier, healthier, AND I HAD MY EARLIEST UNMEDICATED OVULATION EVER (cd30)!! I am now in my 2ww. And if it doesn't happen. I will be okay. I know that God is in control and we WILL get our baby... in HIS timing.
