4 dpo..... took a pregnancy test this afternoon because my stomach has been acting up but of course it was negative lol. I had a flu shot so it's probably just something I ate.
This cycle I did three inseminations. One CD 12, one CD 13 and one a little late due to weather delaying the package on CD 16. I'm 99% sure I ovulated on CD 14 so the last insemination didn't really matter. For the first insemination I did it like usual for almost all of it but then I used a soft cup for the last little bit. The second insemination I did half and half. The third I was lazy and put it all in the soft cup but then spilled a lot of it while inserting it.
I've cut out almost all gluten (I'm just finishing up the bread that I have) and all dairy (just finishing the cheese I have) and I must admit that I've been feeling a lot less bloated. I did have my usual ovulation pains but I hadn't been off of the gluten and dairy for long before ovulation. I'm not eating any red meat, eggs or soy either so I'm hoping it will help a lot. We'll see if it really makes a difference when/if (hopefully not!) I get my period. I know it can take a while to see any major changes in pain but so far it hasn't been that hard. The only thing I haven't cut out was sugar because that is super hard for me. I'm hoping to slowly reduce my sugar intake once I get the rest of the things out of my system and into a good routine.
Test day is Saturday (10 dpo) and then every morning after that.....
