I took my last provera pill on Friday and I'm still waiting for cd1. The past few cycles it has started 3 days after so I am hoping it's here any time now.

The plan is 1500mg Metformin, 150mg clomid cd5-9 and ultrasound cd12. We did another SA for E last week. When we were TTC Truitt E did a SA on the 21st, we found out I was pregnant the 23rd so the results obviously didn't matter BUT his count was 20 million; normal is 60mil-200million. This time his count came back at 58mil; much better than last time BUT still just under the low side of normal so DR P WANTS TO SEND US TO A SPECIALIST. Ummmm wtf. I told his nurse that it wasn't an option right now because a specialist will be 100% out of pocket since our insurance won't cover a cent of it and it would cost thousands for just the initial testing not even including treatment. When we go for our ultrasound I'm going to talk to Dr P and try to get at least 2-3 more clomid cycles in (about to start our 3rd) with him. If we still haven't conceived the next step is to get back on weight watchers and lose 20-30lbs and hopefully by then T will be weaned and then try clomid again.

I'm really thinking breastfeeding may be what is keeping it from happening right now. I weigh less and am more fit than when I conceived T so what else could it be?

Looks like its time to start our 10th month/3rd medicated cycle TTC#2.

Updates all around.

Well today is cd30/10dpo (if I ovulated the day after my positive opk) and surprise, surprise BFN this morning. Granted, 10dpo is very early but I'm just not too optimistic. I'm thinking I had the surge but no actual ovulation. I'll test again Friday and Sunday and then start provera Monday. I am having none of the symptoms I had with T (exhaustion, acne, sore nipples) other than being tired but that's an all the time thing for me.

My sister had her first ultrasound and all is well! Baby's heartbeat was already showing and she was given an EDD of 3/27!

So I posted back in January how I started up as a Thirty-One consultant and I'm thrilled to announce that I just promoted to director!!!! My team is now up to 8 girls and I cannot wait to continue to grow! I had no idea when this started that I would be a director but I am loving every second of it! This month I will be receiving a $750 bestbuy gift card and in October I'll get my $1000 cash bonus for promoting! It's very very exciting and a wonderful blessing!

T is doing wonderfully! His vocabulary is starting to expand daily and my favorite is the way he says thank you and yogurt!!! He will occasionally got potty in the toilet but it's not a regular thing and I'm 100% ok with it- he's still very young!

Another exciting tidbit- I've been doing Baby Boot Camp since mid May. It's a stroller workout around a 1.2 mile track at a local lake. It combines cardio with strength training and it's fun because you're with other moms. Well as of last week I am down 7.5inches!!! The biggest change has been my waist and arms which is so exciting for me! I plan to keep it up and even continue through pregnancy- whenever that may be!
