Monday, Monday, can't trust that day

Actually, I don't have trust issues with Monday; but I do like song lyrics as titles. and the Mamas and the Papas.

Husband and I have decided that we are going to focus on getting our bodies healthy and enjoying one another rather than focusing on conception. Sex can become a chore. We are rediscovering the fun sex. This is also improving our communication and our closeness.

It's been awhile since I last posted. My last post was day 5 of this cycle. I'm now day 11. I've mostly successfully blacked out my bedroom. I still need to fill in the cracks around the door. More on this later. Wednesday will be day 13 and I'll remove the cardboard from my window so that I will be sleeping in light from day 13 - 17. The hope is that I will ovulate during this time. However, this is the first time I've tried this so I don't hold out much hope that it will happen. Left to its own devices, my body likes to ovulate around day 45 or so. Stupid body.

I'm also back on the Chinese herbs. I'll post the name of them in my sidebar. In addition to the herbs, I'm taking red clover leaf tea. It's the whole plant in bloom, dried, with hot water. It doesn't taste bad; but it doesn't taste good either. I'm supposed to add burdock root to it, but I can't find any. The clover leaf is supposed to help with my skin. The clomid and ovidrel really messed with my skin. I had bad breakouts along my jaw line and neck. Not very attractive.

On the topic of skin care, using the shea butter as moisturizer for my face is bad. It was clogging my pores. I'm now using straight coconut oil. It only takes a small amount to do my whole face, neck and chest area. And my skin feels wonderful. I think the tone has improved drastically.

Back to the blacked out bedroom. I've found that I can sleep much later on mornings that I don't have to get up at a certain time, because there's no light coming in. I don't know that the sun has risen already. I could usually rely on myself getting out of bed by 7:30 without an alarm. Not so anymore.
