Day 3 of Cycle - A Good Day

I am on Letrozole and from what I gathered on my internet readings, it actually has less side effects than the clomid.  I did not seem to have any bad ones on clomid except for the vision problems.  So hopefully Letrozole will do the job.
A few months back, I started a new monthly tradition of buying a children's book every time I find out I did not get pregnant.  When I was growing up, my mom used to let me buy a Berenstain Bear book everytime I had to get allergy shots.  I still remember how fun that was.  I have always loved to read and want my child to enjoy books as much as I did. I t has been nice to reminisce about my old favorites like Ferdinand the Bull, Mr. and Mrs. Pig's Evening Out, and Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. And I'ved discovered some new ones too, like Pete the Cat and Children Make Terrible Pets (about a Bear who finds a child lost in the woods and wants to keep it as a pet).
 For me, buying myself a book, is a tangible reward for my monthly efforts.  This month's book, A Good Day, was a newly published one that has a nice message which will hopefully be a harbinger of what's to come this month.
