CD1 - Starting Over

So today is CD1 for me. When I was in last week the nurse gave me the option of either taking Provera, or getting a Progesterone shot in the butt. The Pros and Cons:

Pro: It's a pill that you swallow.
Con: You take 10 of them, then wait another 5-6 days until you get your period. Teenage-style acne.

Pro: You get your period within 5-10 days after the shot. No pills to forget.
Con: You get a shot in your butt. Your butt is really sore for 2+ days. Did I mention you get a shot in your butt?

So I took the shot like a champ. If I had known that I could get a shot this whole time I would've never ever taken the Provera. It feels like such a waste of time. So now we're starting over. I've been trying to work out a bit more and eat healthier. And by eat healthier, I mean eating Chipotle. Long story short, I am obsessed with Chipotle burrito bowls and believe that they helped to cure me from POTS Syndrome. I ate them before my wedding and lost a bunch of weight while still being healthy. Chipotle is like the Fountain of Wellness for me. Plus they're so yummy. So when I went back to California for a wedding last weekend, I bought 10 to bring home and freeze. I swear that I'll get pregnant this cycle because of this.

Also, I got this as my monthly horoscope. And I am putting all of my eggs in this basket:

Also, if you have been trying for a pregnancy, only to be disappointed, the move of Saturn to direct on June 12 should give you reason for hope. If you are seeing a fertility specialist, plan your next try after June 12, but prior to August. Mercury will be retrograde ALL month in August, so you won't want to have expensive treatments then. 

Really?!?! I know I'm not the most rational person in the world right now, but I'll take that. I'm planning on being positive and rocking this cycle.
