Very Pleased

Monday, November 01, 2010

At CD3, the cramps and discomfort I've had this time around have been honestly minimal. Like I have barely felt like I am even having my period! I am very pleased with this, and I think it is a huge encouragement that doing acupuncture/healthy eating is going to allow my body to go leaps and bounds towards pregnancy.

I have never read The Infertility Cure- what do you think of that book, those of you who've read it?

It's based on Chinese Medicine, and although I'm not sure I'm up for a very regimented diet, I'm intrigued as to the other dietary/lifestyle changes that it might recommend.

If you can believe it, today at the pregnancy center, I had a couple where the girl wanted the test to be -, and the guy wanted it to be +. It was -, and let me just tell you it is really weird to sit across from someone two weeks in a row who is so disappointed at the - result and feel like you're looking in a mirror. My heart went out to the poor husband, and I know that Mr. A had felt the same way so many times. It was just another opportunity to share my/our story, though (abbreviated version of course- they don't have all day! ha!), and to share my belief that God will bring something good out of this disappointment!!!

Other than the slight hysteria (Mr. A would not agree it was slight) I experienced upon seeing a 4x4 pulling a hayride of 25 kids under 7 through our neighborhood last night, I am very pleased with how things are going today. It's about time I felt like something is right!!

Yay for no painful periods! Mine are still painful, but MUCH lighter since doing acupuncture. It's wonderful. :)

I loved the Infertility Cure - found it to be very informative, and it helps you understand a lot more of the "why" of what your acupuncturist is doing. Check it out!

Funny about your hayride hysteria - I grew up on a farm in a rural area and we did that kind of thing all the time. :) It's all about perspective I guess. :)

I have that book if you would like to borrow it. I found it to be very informative and while I didn't agree with everything, I think it gave me a better understanding of what is going on in there ;) Shoot me an email if you would like to borrow it!
