Baby Making Update

How funny is the "meme" above? For everyone who tells you "When you stop trying it will happen" or "Just Relax and your body will respond better" well friends... If I could "Stop trying" and lay in bed relaxed while reading a book and get pregnant I would LOVE that! lol! For reals! It is about Science, Your body, Timing and I could go on and on....

Now, my update? Well tonight I go to my second Acupuncture session with a Chinese herbal medicine specialist and I will start a round of herbs. People really see results using acupuncture for Fertility so I am all for trying. But I am hoping tonight I can try and relax with all the needles in me like the session is intended instead of me freaking out thinking "THERE ARE NEEDLES IN ME"

Second, I went to my gyno 2 weeks ago and after my check up she referred me to a Reproduction and Fertility specialist here in Denver. Her thought is what if I have a blockage, tumor, something that is preventing the egg from doing it's job? We need to find out. SO next month I will have this weird ultrasound procedure called a FemVue. Long story short they use saline and ultrasound to see ALL your reproductive organs to make sure everything is as it should be. And oh ya, Matt didn't escape this either he goes for his "check up" in 2 weeks against his will.

Anyways we shall see where all this takes us but before we go I have 1 thing I want to address and get off my shoulders.........
Yes, this October Matt and I will have been married for 8 years... together for 10. We are both almost 35. SO for those wondering WHY we waited until our 30s aka "So OLD" to try and have a baby when it would have been easier in our 20s here is the answer

1. We don't know that it wold have been easier, there is no way to know that we would have gotten pregnant on the first try because we were "younger"

2. Matt and I are planners and very level headed.... we ALWAYS knew that we would have a Baby when we were in the best place in our marriage. I have seen countless people have a baby to "make things better" and it ends badly. Since we got married we have faced a lot.... Matt working 80+ hours a week the first few years of our marriage, then the sudden move to Ohio and those things do not make a Happy Marriage. I have never been one to say we were perfect. We had some really rocky years and we were not in a place for a Baby. But this move to Denver last year... everything changed. We are in a great place, we just knew it was the time to bring a child into our lives.
So my point is we made the responsible decision to bring a child into our lives when our marriage was ready and yes, it made us older. And yes, maybe that is causing us challenges in getting pregnant but we can't be judged for that.

I will keep you all updated, we are hopeful... I'm not sad or stressed really just ready for this to be DONE already! haha!
Thanks for listening friends!

I know it's so frustrating when you are wanting it to happen and it doesn't but hang in there- it will happen!! We did fertility with the twins and honestly once the process started it went fast. It was stressful of course, but I was just glad to have answers and get things moving :) then we were so NOT trying and our little man came along, no fertility, nothing ha! So although the fertility process can be daunting try to stay positive and I bet it happens sooner than you think ;)

Nothing wrong with waiting! I admire you for thinking the whole thing through and being in a good place before bringing a baby into your marriage. Good luck to you both.....Robin

I hope you get some answers after the tests, then y'all and the Dr's can make a plan to bring a little baby(ies). I am glad you are not really stressing. All your readers are here for you. I mentioned before, fertility treatment worked for my Sister and then her second daughter came along no problem. Keep us posted and I hope the acupuncture was not too unbearable.

Can't remember if I've already commented about this, but read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. Basically you're only fertile the day you ovulate and about 5 days before. You can track your ovulation easily yourself or use a Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor or other tools to help. If you are "sub-fertile" or if other stuff is going on, then that's a different story. We do lose some fertility with age, but it's not like people in their 30's are infertile. Sometimes we just don't know when the optimum fertility window is for trying, and it's a simple matter of getting to know your body. If you've taken the pill, your body has to recover for a while because it has learned to not get pregnant or to not implant, if impregnated. Sometimes it just takes time.
