I went to yoga tonight and feel immensely better than I have in days. I have been skipping my Tuesday night classes because it’s the more advanced class and to be honest, I am one of the weaker ducks in class. I can twist and fold and stretch much better than most beginners, but my chicken legs and upper body are seriously lacking strength. But I made myself go.
Since I am (almost)giving up on this cycle because I have yet to receive a +OPK on CD 18, I have been dieting better (the low-carb, no refined sugar/simple carbs one, minimal dairy) and working out a ton! I feel great! I have lost 6 of my 12 Clomid pounds (part of that is probably due to the decrease in bloating lol) and am working on 8 more. 😉 So I decided 45 mins of elliptical before 1 hr of intermediate/advanced yoga couldn’t hurt. And boy did it NOT!
Yes, I admit I seriously contemplated leaving class early when my legs were dyyyying and I looked at the clock only to notice that class wasn’t almost over- it wasn’t even HALF over. So I dug deep and stayed and I’m so glad. I feel good now. I had some weird pulling sensations in my abdomen and then when I got undressed I noticed my boobs were full and nips were sore. Weird.
So maybe I did ovulate and I’m now in my 2ww?!? But the last time I had all of these odd symptoms (lightheaded all day today, weird pulling sensations, exhaustion, and SORE/FULL boobs) was the first month I took 100mg of Clomid. I O’ed on CD16 and starting feeling these symptoms 8DPO. I didn’t take ANY Clomid this month so what’s the deal? Smh.
So now I’m just trying to focus on the things that calm me. I scheduled my first acupuncture appt for next week and am waiting for my referral to the fertility clinic so I can make an appt with my new RE (without having to put down a $200 DEPOSIT!! Seriously?!? Do any of you deal with that BS?) and make a plan.
So now, I’m just about ready to stop hiding in my cubicle (well, we have half-cubes so I guess I’m not even really hiding) and avoiding my FERTILE (all uppercase because it’s ridiculous how fertile they freaking are!) friends/family members. Good timing because I have to travel down to Southern California this weekend for my lil sister’s 30th bday!
So any ideas about my weirdass cycle this month and possible 2ww symptoms?!?
