For those who are still trying, I’ll tell you what I did. Keep in mind, it wasn’t just one solid thing. If anything, it was a perfect storm:
- Acupuncture (it really calmed down my nerves and made me focus on things that weren’t pregnancy/baby-related)
- Exercising daily (Again, just to calm my nerves and besides, I wanted to look and feel better)
- More fruits and veggies and a lot of water to flush out my system.
- Lots of sex (of course!)
- Lots of Prayer
- Fertibella (I have to note on the Fertibella: I’m not sure if it helped or not. I did start taking it in January and I found out I was pregnant, with still a week to go in my second bottle, so take this news with a grain of salt. I can’t say for sure it did work; I can’t say for sure it didn’t work.)
For those still trying, please don’t give up hope. I’ve been in despair, I’ve been angry, I’ve been numb. Even just a short while ago, I wondered, ‘Maybe it’s not meant for me to be a mother again.’ I’ve had an early miscarriage and a late loss, so I know the feelings all too well. We were about to start setting up an appointment to do IUI and then IVF when we found out we got pregnant on our own. So please to all of my TTC ladies, do not give up.
