Current cycle status and vitamin regimen

So, since I am not charting, OPKing, or doing really anything to track my cycle most of this is a guesstimate. I would say the only thing I am really doing is marking when my period arrives on my phone's calendar and when it is projected. Since I tend toward 30 day cycles, I am estimating to get my period this cycle on 11/25/11--Thanksgiving, AGAIN. I only hope that it is much less painful than last Thanksgivings. Still, I am about 4 days away from my expected period--still no spotting, but I could still get it as close as 2 days before.

I really am trying not to obsess about my cycles, but when my BBs hurt so much, and I know that I've ovulated....I can't help but wait and wonder. I only keep track of when to expect my period so I can know if it is late. I try not to obsess about whether or not I am...I tend to despair that I will never get pregnant naturally.  I did have some spotting about a week ago for 2-3 days..not much...could have been O-spotting. Time will tell. 

I'm also out of supplements. I need to get my Royal Jelly, B-Complex and Folic Acid replaced. I've been out for awhile. Other than that I'm going back on my Melaleuca Vitality 4 vitamins since when I added that to my regimen last time I had such a long luteal phase. So I really believe in those. 

Hopefully I'll be able to get some soon.

I think I need to do the same. I have been doing lots of research about herbs and supplements to "aide in ttcing" so it is definitely time to stock up and hopefully conceive in the next few months...fx

I wish I could just chill out and track my periods. I have a pretty typical cycle but I think I might be addicted to my thermometer. I can quit temping for about a week when AF shows but then... I just can't help it. I fall off the wagon.

@Miss Diva Lisa--I'm supplement crazy! I was creating a supplement guide for our LTTTC board at So many women I see are jumping on a vitamin bandwagon without checking out whether it suits their condition or is good for them.

@Maria--I know! I was the same way! Until I agree with DH that I would truly NTNP I knew I had to stop. I can't stop obsessing over my cycle while I am temping. In many ways I feel a lot better. But as soon as we're back on more active TTC, I may start again, unless I just decide to use CBEFM only!
