I’m about 95% I didn’t O this cycle, so this is annovulatory bleeding, but I’m grateful. I think this is a good sign, right? My hormones actually did something right to bring on AF on its own?
My next appointment to check on the cyst is May 5th and coincidently that is CD14, the exact day they would do a normal scan to check on follicles! It would be a miracle if my cyst was gone (or I’d be ok with a tiny cyst too) and I had a good follicle! I’m wondering if they’d give me the trigger to release the egg! I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I’m trying to have a positive outlook!

So let me introduce you to the place we will call home very soon!
- 1920 square feet
- 3 bedrooms, 2 bath
- Office w/ French Doors
- Formal Dining Room
The master bath has a separate shower and garden tub with a HUGE walk-in closet! A Black side by side Frigidaire Refrigerator is included. The home has an 8-ft privacy fence, large backyard patio and most importantly a backyard for our dogs!!
It looks like the owner is going to allow us to paint some of the walls, so we’ll sign the lease a little earlier than originally planned. We have our apartment will June 15th, but will sign the lease for the rental home as of June 1st. That will give us some time to paint, move in and get our apartment all cleaned and ready to turn over.
Finally something actually goes our way!!
In TTC news – Not much. It’s CD 40 (I think). I’m not charting, but need to. I have been pretty sore around my cyst, but I have been pretty active lately. I’ve stayed away from working out since they’ve found the cyst and partnered with not eating right has brought 10 extra pounds onto my backside. I’m returning to the gym this week. I’ve got to. I’ll just take it easy and see how my body responds.

I’ve been known to act on things way before necessary. What can I say, I’m a planner. I plan way ahead than I’m supposed to. Oh well. Just call me organized and overly prepared!
Our lease is up in 2 months and we are 110% positive we’ll be moving from our very cozy 1 bedroom apartment into a rental home. We’ve rented a home before and we miss it very much.
Unfortunately, I have some restrictions with our next home. It must have a Formal Dining Room AND room for a dedicated office space. One is a need (the office) and one is a want (the dining). Our families are large and very close, so I’m hoping to utilize the formal dining for Thanksgiving AND Christmas this year. We will also need a Guest Room. So all in all, we are looking for a 3 bedroom home, with a separate study (or formal living to use as an office), and a formal dining. We’re hoping to find a home with at least 1700 sq ft and a 2 car garage.
Last week, I was snooping on craigslist and found the perfect home! Everything we were looking for, but it was over our budget at $1300/month. It was P-E-R-F-E-C-T, but I had to pass it up, because of the high rent. I pouted and never looked back. Today, again I’m snooping, just looking to see what’s available......and I see the listing again, except this time it’s $1200 a month!! Now we’re talking.....I can afford a $100 monthly savings!
Long story short, we ended up talking to the owner today and visiting the property for a viewing! It was beautiful! We’re beginning the application process tomorrow. I don’t want to jinx myself, so I’m saving the details till after we find out if we’re approved. Crossing my fingers....

Yes, they are still attached - my right ovary and it's new friend - a 5 cm cyst. Yes, it's decreased in size, which I thank God! The doctor is optimistic it will go away on it's own. It's no longer a questionable Tumor. It's benign and an Ovulatory Cyst. The fact that it's decreasing in size is a very good sign and frankly, I'm very thankful. I am a little upset that it hasn’t disappeared, but I'm grateful for what I've been given and that's a smaller cyst. I go back in another 4 weeks to see what it has done. Please keep praying!
I came home to a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I asked my husband "Why?" and he says "Just Because!" Of course, I wonder if he's been thinking we may receive bad news today and he was trying to cushion the fall. The flowers are beautiful and quite fragrant! I sat down in my office and smelt the fragrance immediately. I thought to myself "Dang, it smells good in here!" - ignoring the fact that it actually smelt good and not the usual bad. It wasn't until I placed a business receipt on one of my shelves and realized someone had moved a stack of books and piled them on my 2008 receipts (waiting to be dealt with). Then I noticed a big bouquet of lilies on the shelf above! It was a beautiful and quite uplifting surprise! :)

I have a “feeling” that it’s decreased in size, but honestly, considering I had no pain prior to finding this cyst and I still have no pain, I can say it’s all in my head. I’m hoping so much it’s decreased or gone and I’m convinced in my mind, it has.
Since the news of the cyst emerged, I’ve told our immediate families about TTC. I’ve been extremely grateful with the amount of encouraging words and prayer they all have provided. DH’s Grandmother and Aunt attend the same church and they asked if they could add me to their “prayer list” at their church. I graciously accepted. I appreciate any and all of the prayers from friends, family, and everyone.
After the discovering of the cyst, AF arrived very early on CD12. This cycle I haven’t been charting religiously. I suppose I’ve been discouraged with this cyst. I’m currently on CD23 and unsure if I even ovulated this cycle. My gut says no. If AF hasn’t arrived, I may request blood work at my ultrasound appointment, which will be CD28. I suppose I could test before I go too…
