Anything to get pregnant!

In my quest to get pregnant I have tried acupuncture this cycle. I was referred to this wonderful doctor from a fellow IF friend of mine. She is a very understanding women. She had secondary IF and tried to get pregnant with their 2nd for 6 years. She ended up pregnant with quads (giving birth to 3 of them) after an IUI. She gives me such great hope. I am not sure if I truly believe in the holistic side of medicine, but her gentle way of relaxing me and making me feel like I am not alone can't hurt.
Another note I didn't mention before, but came up at my post-op visit on Monday from the laparoscopy in December. I had received a phone call from my doctor's office about 2 weeks after the surgery to see how I was. I missed the call and had to call the nurse back. This nurse was not one of my informed IF nurses, she was one of the OB nurses. When she picked up my phone call she asked me how I was feeling after having my baby. I was nice about it and said that I didn't have a baby that I had a laparoscopy because I have been unable to get pregnant. I had actually forgotten about it, but my doctor was so embarrassed and apologized over and over again at my appointment. It really wasn't that big of a deal to me, she caught me on a good day with that comment, but it was good to hear that my doctor was upset about it. Shows she cares.


  1. I'm glad the doctor was apologetic. ((Hugs))

  2. Ugh, that would have been awful on a bad day! Glad you were able to handle it in stride :)

  3. Just stopping by for ICLW -- I just went to my first acupuncture appt. too! I'm not yet at IUIs but they are in the near future. Check out my blog if you get a chance!


  4. ICLW here....I'm glad your doc recognized it. I hope the acupuncture helps. It is very relaxing.

  5. Yikes! So glad your doctor was apologetic. Take care and good luck!
