So, turns out that ovulation pain is not a good sign of fertility according to TCM. Hmmm...how can eastern and western medicine be at odds with this? Dr. A told me that ovulation pain suggests stagnation. Oh, BTW, stagnation has become my middle name I suppose. My acupuncture appointment today was calming at best. I was not given any herbs for this second part of my cycle, so we'll see. I was truly hoping for the secret potion that would make this all be one BFP soon, but I guess not even TCM can promise that.
I am still feeling very positive. My dietary changes really have made me feel better. I am less tired even though I am so busy with the new semester. In addition, my list of ingredients is even more manageable now that I learned to use amarynth instead of white rice to make sushi. Trust me, I do miss a big ol' fat cheeseburger, though.
And fries. And meatloaf. And chips. And booze!!!
