After the marathon euphoria wore off, baby fever moved in full force. It’s a tough one to shake, and kind of takes over your life.
First task, get rid of that pesky hypothalamic amenorrhea.
I’ve mentioned it before . Despite maintaining a BMI and body fat percentage in the healthy range and not running crazy mileage (I typically averaged 25-30 miles a week, except in the latter stages of marathon training this past fall), my body is just really sensitive to exercise and it causes my hormones to get out of whack.
Hoping I won’t need the help of a Reproductive Endocrinologist again, for the past 3 months I’ve been following a grueling regimen……of light jogging (< 12 miles per week) and yoga. For an endorphone junkie, it's not an easy change. But that's what needs to be done for now.
A couple weeks ago my body finally decided to cooperate, and I got a lovely positive OPK. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be this cycle. Today’s CD 1, so moving on.
Well, now you know what's going on around here. I apologize if that was TMI you would have preferred not to know.
