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!
