You rock! Thank you, I was going to do the same thing :D I am mobile, so I apologize for the lack of red text!

I am getting myself organized for this 3 week cleanse and I am hoping that I can get lots of support from my cysters (love it!) because I know I will struggle with these changes :eek:

Added you! Good luck on your cleanse, I don't think I'm strong enough to try that. He'll, im not strong enough to get rid of potato chips!

AFM, I'm taking DS to the doc today for croup after a HORRIBLE experience at urgent care on Friday. I'm also waiting out one cycle on TTC after my D&c last week. The clearblue monitor wanted me to start peeing on sticks this morning, and came up peak today, so I don't think I can count on that to guide me this cycle. I'll probably just use NPC starting a week from today to bring on AF and get a clean slate, KWIM?

Sounds like a good plan! We are currently TTA, we decided to wait to even discuss the possibility of #3 until May when DS2 turns 2. We don't have trouble w fertility (lucky!)...I'm pretty sure #3 is very likely though :giggle:

I just took provera to induce my cycle and am on day 2 right now. I will take 100mg of clomid on days 5-9! This is my second clomid cycle, I didn't ovulate on the first.

Welcome! Good luck on the clomid! We were scheduled to start in December... I don't know what is the plan now. I hope it works this cycle! Were you on 50 last cycle?

NAK

thanks!

What do yall think is the best diet plan? Low carb turns me into a beast since i have been ebf. I have serious belly fat i never lost from my kiddos.

Also do yall have problems with facial hair? What do you do to tame it? Does losing weight help diminish symptoms?

No, I was on 100, doc wants to do another 100 cycle before increasing. I also night weaned since then though, so I hope that helps!
