Okay, so I think I mentioned before I bought a Clearblue easy fertility monitor. While I wait for that doctor’s appointment I’m gonna get out the big guns! Well, the medium guns, I guess the doctor is the big gun? lol.
Okay so when I get up, I HAVE to pee, so I decided to use a small plastic container (like the ones you drink medicine from) and just pee into that, then dip my stick in (I turn on the monitor first to see if it asks for a stick). Sorry to be so graphic! lol.
This morning the monitor flashed the stick symbol, so I peed and dipped in the stick. Plugged it in, and then of course the monitor right now says low fertility. I expected that, it’s a day after my period “officialy” ended.
I decided also to take pictures of my sticks, a lot of people online read them as well, so I figure it can’t hurt.
Here is my monitor with a stick:
So if I’m reading this correctly, the blue bar on the left side is my level of estrogen, the bar on the right (that you can barely see) is my level of LH. When the bars are similar, that means fertility is high, and when the left is light and the right is dark, then that’s peak fertility time.
Eating still going pretty well, exercised two times this week, plan on increasing it to 3 times next week. I’ll be happy with 2-4 times during the week and continuing to eat right, at the moment I’m not focused on the number so much. Last night we went out for dinner and I had a few bites of the appetizer (chicken quesadilla), salmon, broccoli, snap peas, zucchini, and summer squash. I did have some ice cream later, but just a few bites with hubby.
Here’s to hoping for a BFP!
