Finally, I’ve made it to the half way point on this journey. By this time next week I will know whether or not I am preggers. While the wait isn’t as hideous and all consuming as last time it is only marginally less. This month I have a lot more hope and positivity about it all. The Chinese herbs are probably helping this. I’m not sure I mentioned this but it turns out some of the herbs the acupuncturist has given me are the equivalent of happy pills.
I am also taking an implantation herb which tastes disgusting, well it tastes like dirt. Very earthy as my friend said. She was bang on. I am pretty focused with the pills and herbs which is unusual for me. I seem to find it really challenging to remember them all of the time but there is something in me that has me right on track with it all this month. I think it is because the acupuncturist is constantly telling me her success stories as we chat away. I always thought acupuncture was the predominant part of treatment but she says she often treats people by distance with just herbs and has a lot of success. So my take home from that was that the herbs are powerful, I must take them. I think it helped that I was feeling so good and positive after being so stressed and that all lined up with the happy herb she gave me. I’m also glad she didn’t tell me it was a happy herb when she gave it to me so my response is just natural.
Anyway I think I’m just banging on here for the sake of banging on. Am I preggers? Have no freaking idea. Movement in the baby making area seems pretty minimal this month compared to a lot of activity last month so have no idea if that is any indication. This month we also added in some BD (baby dancing for those who don’t know this one) 3 days before and 2 days after the IUI so hopefully we have increased the chances. You can never really know when you have ovulated so thought we might as well throw the extra into the ring. I didn’t want to do it too close to the actual time as I didn’t want to dilute the super sperm we had paid to get in there. Plus I figured if one of my other eggs DID pop a day or so later (my ovaries seemed very busy this month with the Clomid) then there was some sense in having some fresh swimmers in the region.
Ah the things we share on blogs. LOL
Countdown is on. Lucky I have a busy week. Pray for us. I would love your prayers and wishes and hopes if you have a small second in your day. Thank you.
