Hip Hip Hooray!

Okay. Ready?

A miracle has occurred. I am bleeding! It is almost exactly one year since I began twice weekly acupuncture treatments. 14 months of Chinese herb therapy and I FINALLY am bleeding. I realize it's a bit odd to be this happy, but I was starting to wonder if I was throwing my money away.

This is the first cycle that I have had in over 10 years that has not been aided by progesterone or birth control pills. I am having my own tiny personal miracle. I am stunned.

I am stunned because I've gotten lazy. I've gained weight. I've stopped temping. I've stopped peeing on sticks. I was discouraged. I need to pick myself up by my panty liner wings and start again. I have no idea if this was an ovulatory cycle or not.
