Apparently relaxing doesn't make babies and neither does sex...

Acupuncture is what makes babies.

Today I had my first acupuncture appointment. Since I've had my share of pokes in the past I wasn't afraid of the needles, just a little nervous because it was a new place and something that was unknown to me. As I figured it wasn't bad at all and I only have two spots that are the tiniest bit sore. Of course Master Thei (pronounced Ty) is sure that given a few months he can get us pg w/o IVF. I had been told he would say this by my friend Lisa that referred us there. The assistant saw her name on my referral and happily told me that she was the one pg with twins now, right? I smiled and said yes, twin boys. I just didn't have the heart to tell him that she is pg with twins via her last IVF. I figured I'd just give him that one.

Anyway, it's always funny to me when people say things like relax and you'll get pg or now that you've had a baby you'll get pg. Or as in today's case where Master Thei feels like he can readjust my system and get my womb ready for a healthy baby and healthy mommy (his words). I find this hilarious because we are dealing with male factor meaning that there's a little more to it than that. Oh well, we agreed that I would go once a week and that it would take several cycles, but that we'd stick to until I got pg. Again I didn't have the heart to tell him that we would still be doing IVF in October even though he was positive we'd be fine. I guess when it works (thinking positive) I'll just let him have that one too.

It is SO damn frustrating and exhausting. I hope that your next cycle goes well. Until then - keep up with the sex. It certainly can't hurt, right??

Our issue was MF too and after EIGHT YEARS, I truly thought it would never happen. That's what I get for thinking!!
