I am going to make some other changes in my life as we get back into the swing of things too. First of all - I am going to try to start doing yoga every day. Now, I don't think that this will be the trick to get pregnant, but I've read some research articles lately saying it can be somewhat beneficial. I guess a lot of yoga moves gets your blood circulating all over your body - including your reproductive organs. I have heard of people even "massaging" their uterus from the outside of their stomach to stimulate blood flow... supposedly that helps with your lining as crazy as that sounds. Anyway - I think yoga could only help and do no harm... not to mention just the other health reasons as it is good to stretch and use it as a stress reliever. I have been running lately, but now that I am on clomid again I won't be able to. I plan to keep walking *briskly* and even do some incline work on the treadmill to keep up my aerobic activity without jostling my ovaries around. It is so odd you can't really exercise while on clomid, but here is why:
"Some exercise is acceptable during treatment, but as the treatment cycle progresses only low impact exercise (walking) is recommended. The ovaries may become enlarged from the fertility medications you may be taking, and high impact exercise may put you at risk for ovarian torsion, where the ovary can twist on itself. This is very rare, but a serious side effect."Yikes... so I am going to do what I can to avoid THAT from happening. Some other things I plan on doing is drinking LOTS AND LOTS of water... continuing to take Evening Primrose Oil (the ONLY thing that helped with my CM... especially on clomid), taking B-6, and using OPK's as I did last time. The first cycle on clomid I O'd on CD16 and the second on CD20. Way way better than CD45.
I am soooo happy to be done with that first cycle after my miscarriage. I feel that I am finally moving on (at least in the TTC sense) and being pro-active again. If this month works, chances are we'll have an April baby. I'm praying for that baby already in hope that I will conceive and meet him/her soon.
