"Early" ovulation and exposure to H1N1, and Lent plans

It's CD 19 and I'm P+4, which means I ovulated on CD 15.  Since I usually don't ovulate until between CD 16-21 (and sometimes later), CD 15 is pretty early.  We had decent timing (P-3 and P-1), but of course my surgery is in about 2 1/2 weeks so I don't have my hopes up.  I'm glad that I'll be at about CD 8 or so for my surgery.

The little boy I nanny for tested positive for H1N1 yesterday and I didn't get the vaccine, so I'm hoping I don't catch it.  We are going to visit my relatives and D's best friend and his wife (so I'll be visiting with two pregnant women), so it would be an extra poor time to get sick, especially with H1N1.  I also have had some very mild UTI type symptoms that I'm trying to keep at baby with large amounts of cranberries.  Please pray for me!

I'm doing pretty well so far on the Endo Diet, which I started about a week ago.  I've got my dinner plans for done through mid-March (I didn't do any plans for the time we are in Omaha, but I sent my mom some info).  I'm working on lunch and breakfast plans.  I'm have the hardest time with breakfast since I take it with me to work and I don't want to have to cook it, and eggs are out so muffins and breads are much more difficult.  I'm not sure how well I'll be able to follow it this weekend since we'll be traveling and staying at people's houses.  It's only 2-3 days so I'm not going to make a huge deal out of it, but if anyone does have any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.

For Lent, I'm significantly cutting back on my internet time (and cutting FB games completely).  This means that although I'll still be reading the blogs, I won't be commenting too much.  I'm going to try to use this time for prayer, reading (focusing on spiritual reading) and keeping up with my housework (which is a difficult area for me).  I still need to talk to D and figure out almsgiving.

Have a blessed Lent everyone.


  1. So great that you ovulated earlier than normal! Will keep you in prayer. Travel safely!

  2. yay ovulation!

    hoping your uti doesn't come to fruition - still recovering from mine!! down the cranberry juice and lots of water lady!

    enjoy your trip to austin this weekend - we may pass each other on the road :)

  3. Way to go, ovaries! I second your hopes for not getting H1N1. I am inspired by your dedication to planning your meals according to the endo diet. Great job.

  4. As a sub...I was exposed to the virus too...and thankfully did not get it. I did get the vaccinated but not until late Nov. So, Lord willing you won't get it too.

    I play F.b games too...I'm limiting myself on blog and fb time too. I need to study and put my priorities in order.


  5. Oh no. I hope the H1N1 bypasses you and the UTI gets better.

    That's great on the ovulation!

    Have a blessed lent.

  6. I hope you don't get sick. Make sure you get LOTS of Vit. D! It does wonders for keeping away flus of all kinds.
    Congrats on the early ovulation :).

  7. Good luck avoiding H1N1! I didn't get the vaccination since I'm allergic to eggs (I can't get any flu shots since they are made in egg albumen) and I've been able to avoid getting sick despite being around germy little kids.

    As for finding things to eat that are on the endo diet, I eat A LOT of cereal! It's easy and there are so many varieties (especially for you, there are so many more products in the US!). I also stocked up on rice crackers and rice cakes. Raw veggies and fruit also are a staple for me too.

    Good luck with your Lenten promises!

  8. Oh no! I hope you don't get sick that wouldn't be good. Ovulation is def. a good thing.
