Day 21 bloodwork

I hate getting my blood drawn.  I had to go this morning to get my progesterone levels checked to verify that I've ovulated.  I'll find out in a couple of days.  But so far due to my chart I feel that I really did ovulate and on cycle day 14 to boot (not 15 as previously stated).  Anyway, I just hate it.  The act of blood oozing slowly out of my vein into a test tube always gives me the chills.  And I get so tense for the little needle stick.  I know it isn't that painful but I get all stressed out about it and make it worse than it is.  I suppose one good thing is at least I know that about myself and can prep the phlebotomist.  The woman I had today was so nice and did the draw super fast.  So I walked out of there pretty unscathed.  

I was a good girl and ate all my pineapple.  And I've been taking my Dang gui and Artemesia combination herbs as directed.  So now I just sit back and wait.  Just a few days to go until I can test.  I only have to internet cheapy tests at home so that will discourage me from testing too early I think.  We'll see.  I'll let you know of course.

bwahaha... internet cheapies are MADE for people to test early, that way you don't waste too much $$.

Good luck, my friend. My fingers are crossed for you!
