So today is day 2 of my IUI. Besides minor cramps and bloating, I feel great. I am so glad I took Letrozole as opposed to Clomid for this cycle. I think Clomid is a great drug that works for many people but not me. It also makes me feel crappy even for weeks after I take it. Hopefully, insurance companies will soon accept Letrozole for use as a fertility drug and not just a drug to fight breast cancer (it can be difficult to get some insurance companies to approve it sometimes).
Today I got up early to do yoga and took it easy for the rest of the day. I am trying hard to relax 🙂 I also spent some time researching healthy options that I can include in my life. I originally created this blog document my journey to health. I also consider my blog an infertility blog. My infertility is still unexplained so for me, health and fertility are the same thing. There is nothing wrong that I need to address or some diagnosed infertility cause that I need to overcome. The only thing I can do is improve my mental and physical health
One of my primary health goals is to cut out processed food. I still have a ways to go but I have made a ton of progress. One thing I struggle with is finding the best way to store and preserve my food since unprocessed food tends to go bad quickly. I recently found a great food hack that suggested storing onions in pantyhose. My husband was a little confused when he saw this and asked me why on earth I would store onions in pantyhose. While it is strange, it really works and does extend shelf life!
Today I decided to create a pintrest account so I can share and organize the recipes, tips, and information I have found that have helped me make healthy changes. I also added a pintrest follow button on my blog (I feel so technologically savvy!) and you can also find it here. Feel free to browse, follow, give suggestions, or share information you have found useful.
I wish all my fellow bloggers currently in the 2WW (as well as those with scheduled upcoming treatments) the best of luck! Baby dust to all – Jennie
