So yesterday I peed an almost-positive ovulation test, and today I peed a definitely positive ovulation test, so yay, a chance to get pregnant again! I've also been getting ovary-area cramps for the past hour or so which I take to be a good sign. Today is only day 26 of my cycle- still much longer than it should take me to ovulate considering I'm on clomid, have lost 30 pounds in the last 3 months by eating less than 50 grams of carbs a day, and have been drinking vitex tea (vitex is shown to regulate hormones related to the reproductive system and I'm pretty sure it's helped me ovulate in the past- and my temps have been much steadier since I started drinking this tea every day), but much less than the 53 days it took me to ovulate last cycle!
So it seems
all this weight loss work has helped for something at least. Also, the
insulin spots are still on my thigh but barely there (very much faded)
and my knuckles and elbows are no longer black, although my elbows are
still a bit darker than they probably should be. But much lighter than they've been for as long as I can remember!
I found a ribbon to wrap around my wedding ring on the bottom half so it won't
fall off my finger which it was in danger of doing (and did once already, but I saw/heard it and picked it up). It might look weird when I gesticulate in class
though, but oh well, I'd rather look stupid than lose my wedding ring.
now will continue doing it for a few more days until ovulation is
confirmed with a temp spike (you get a positive test a day or two before
ovulation and a temperature spike after ovulation) and then wait a few
