Origin Update

I’m currently on CD8, and have been on my Origin vitamins for a week. They are massive, gigantic horse pills, everyone. They smell funny, they’re hard to swallow, and they make me queasy even when I take them with food.

However, I’ve already noticed some signs of the beginnings of fertile CM. Yesterday it was a bit watery, so I’m taking that as a good sign. I have always been lacking in the CM department and I think that may be one of the reasons that we’re having a bit of difficulty conceiving. I’m going to start using my OPKs on CD10, which is Thursday.

I know I said that I was trying to be relaxed about trying and I am. I have to try and pinpoint my ovulation, because with these vitamins you’re only supposed to take them ’till 7DPO. 2 a day from CD1 ’till ovulation, then 1 a day from ovulation ’till 7DPO. Then you switch to your normal prenatals. I told DH that I was either going to use OPKs again or start temping. He vehemently balked at the temping, as he hates waking up in the mornings to beep… beep… beeeeeeeep….

I can’t say that I blame him.

Here’s hoping that I won’t be able to drink anything but water or juice this St. Patty’s Day! Woo!
