Still No AF And Some Good News

Three days on and still no AF. Since yesterday morning all I've been having are brown chocolatey stuff. I don't have those crampy feelings that normally accompany a period. I'm not sure what having a flu has to do with AF. I just want to have it and done with before I start worrying whether I'll be able to ov next month. To be honest I'm not in the mood for a dodgy period, not after all my efforts of the past 6 months!

Just goes to show how much of a bitch PCOS can be. And just when you think you've got things under control, something else goes and messes up.

Meanwhile, Dh had his sperm analysis and all his swimmers are in perfect order. Good news on that note. At least there's only one factor to worry about now. I would have been gutted if it turned out that we both had problems. It's a little easier when it's just one person. I feel better knowing he can give me the strength to do what I need to do for us to have a baby. He will be my pillar.

Having the flu still sucks, I think I've reached the peak though... should hopefully, start feeling better by tomorrow.

Speaking of ov, non existent AF's and babies, I haven't gotten to the stage where I can't stand other people's happiness, i.e., when other women have babies. Which is a natural consequence of wanting something desperately and seeing them acquire it very easily. And I pray to God I never get to that point in my life where I'm bitter and angry that I shut out the world because I didn't get what I want, instead of being thankful for what I am blessed with. I have my moments, don't get me wrong. But they're fleeting and I quickly recover and channel the negative into something positive that I can do to help myself along.

May the prayers of those of us seeking children be answered. Amen!


I'm going to buy a water filter as part of the efforts to reduce the oestrogenic load in my system, also later today. I plan to start eating more cruciferous vegetables. I used to love cabbages, then I stopped. Can I manage one serving of it every day for the next one month? Am I up for a daily dollop of cabbage?


  1. I know I felt like there was no hope for us when I discovered that not only did I have PCOS, Hypothyroidism and activated Natural Killer Cells but my husband has a semi-low count, low motility and low morphology so your definitely in better shape.

  2. *hugs* Whatever problems we face, I believe we are also blessed with the innate ability to deal with them. It may seem that the odds are stacked against you, but you and your hubby will get there eventually. I'm rooting for you & sending positive vibes your way, :)
