Well according to my chart I’m on Day 12 of my LP. I’m pretty skeptical that I marked my temp shift correctly. If I did, in fact, mark it wrong, then I’m only on Day 8 of my LP. My LP was 10 days last cycle and it’s the only one Ive got to go on, so 12 seemed high. Like I didn’t think B6 could lengthen it that much. Maybe it can? After consulting the general public via the internets I found that women have noticed around a two day increase.
While probing around, I found a great article about supplements. I’ll admit I’m supplement crazy. Mostly because I believe that we’re not getting the nutrition we need from the foods we eat.
In other news, the husband and I had a fight last night about this stupid made up holiday in Japan, White Day. Basically, I was sad because I was alone and had to eat alone. He had said he was coming home early, but he didn’t. When he did come home, he was too tired and didn’t have any sweets with him or anything. I said he could have done something small like write me a note or something, but he felt that was impossible to accomplish yesterday. I don’t think either of us were more right than the other person. I think we just viewed the situation differently and that lead to upset. Needless to say, I spent a lot of the night crying. I love my husband more than anything in this world, but I hate fighting with him. I want things to be perfect always, but this is not a perfect world and sometimes there’s turbulence on even the smoothest of journeys. Marriage is hard kids, but if you learn anything from reading this, learn that there will always be ups and downs, but you should always communicate and fix things. In the end, everything is worth it if you’ve found the person who makes you happier than you ever thought possible. To me that is without a doubt my husband.
This morning when I was supposed to be doing homework, I was doing everything but. One thing I did was de-blackhead my face. Yes, that is as disgusting as it sounds. Since stopping birth control, I mentioned an increase in oil production which leads to breakouts. Unfortunately, this also leads to nasty blackheads. Most noticeably I’ve always had blackheads on my nose (even while on the pill). Today I noticed some really gross blackheads on my chin. After almost vomiting, I squeezed the ever loving hell out of my face and managed to get rid of most of them. My face still hurts.
Another thing I did this morning was take a pregnancy test because I thought 12 DPO was a little high. Of course, here in Japan we don’t have early pregnancy tests, so I took a regular test. It was a BFN. No surprise there. I had hoped (if I was a praying woman then prayed too) that I would have seen even the faintest of lines. Nothing.
Oddly enough, I haven’t felt any period symptoms just some weird twinges which do not feel like cramps. This is another reason that I think I marked my shift incorrectly. There’s been no temp drop and no period symptoms which would make sense if I was only 8 DPO. I guess we’ll see what happens in the next few days. Ah the awful waiting game. It’s by far the most difficult part of this whole process.
