I responded to your other post but am just so happy for you I had to reply again LOL!
Wooo hoo Kitty!!!!!!! Not sure if you remember me but I remember you well. Hope you feel comfortable introducing yourself over at PAIF soon, I know a bunch of women on there will remember you too! The story of how you told DH and discovered your BFP is too cute and I am very glad to hear no one is worried about that brief spotting : )View Thread
Thanks for elaborating Erin. Your story gave me major goosebumps! Now (when you start telling people) you get to re-live that moment time and time again as you tell the story. So GREAT, couldn't be happier for you hun : )View Thread
This is such a touching story Erin. I hope you save this to read to you LO in the future. Would love to hear more. Can I ask, what was your emotional reaction to the BFP and were you alone or was your SO there? I know it's hard not to worry at this phase but you are off to a very good start. Congrats!!!!View Thread
Kristin that is such awful news and it makes sense perfect why you would want to take a break.
I just want to say that once I switched to injectibles I was told all kinds of things from the med staff at my REs office about how far superior they are in terms of less side effects and more success. I could've slapped them all for putting me through Femara for so long.
Not saying it will definitely work for you, but you may wanna try that with IUI when you are ready to get back on the horse. If it's not too expensive. Giving myself the shots was 10 times easier than I thought it would be and I am one who HATES needles and has passed out before after giving blood. Hugs, hang in there.View Thread
Okay, I just read this Priscilla. I would trust yourself and the acupuncturess about the issue at hand. But that being said, fertility meds can't hurt if you are open to them. They may even double or triple your chances each month if you produce more than one egg.
But if you are anti-meds or want to try a more conservative approach first then you can try the prog supplements alone. They should give them to you starting post O next C and then redraw your blood. If that doesn't work there are always progesterone shots.
PS-I would buy a fertility monitor vs OPKs. I believe they are more accurate as they monitor two types of hormones (estrogen and HCG) in your urine (vs just one with OPKs).
And keep in mind that the great thing about your acupuncturess is she is well versed in working WITH western medicine. In fact, when I was ready to d/c my progesterone Dr. H encouraged me to continue. So they aren't too far into the Eastern ways. That's one of the reasons I went to them. Fact is, sad to say, if it's a hormonal problem you may get quicker results from a western approach and their approach can augment that.
Example: I had a ton of drugs for my second HSG and she said my body was pretty toxic thereafter and helped to rid me of the toxins via diet and increasing blood flow.View Thread
FYI I just saw her on the PAL board today if you wanna lurk there for her updates, but it sounds like her pregnancy is progressing very well. Whew, so relieved.
This new format sucks! It made it look like she didn't have any posts at all after this one, but I now realize that your profile varies (and the recent discussions it shows) depend upon the board. HTHs.View Thread
