Round Two

Last month was a bust.  It is 'O' time again, and we are off and baby making.  I haven't dropped my coffee habit.  I haven't started to take my vitamins.  It is time for me to focus.  I will start taking my supplements tonight;-)

I had half a latte, this morning. It just sounded sooooo good! I stopped drinking it once I got my fix. I was going to start walking today, but it is all ugly out. I just picked up a book with an eight week yoga program. Yoga helps fertility, so I am going to get back into it. It is such great exercise for the body, mind, and spirit. I want to add the program into my fertility regimen within the next week.

Off the Starbucks

I haven't had a latte since Tuesday the 17th. My breasts are tender, and my skin is ichy in the evening. My skin was horribly itchy, last time I was preggars. I will do a pregnancy test on Sunday.

It was "O" Time

I awoke Sunday with a bloated belly, and a 'full' feeling in my lower abdomen. I tested positive, with the ovulation detector kit, later on that morning. I decided to pretty myself up with a super shave job, and a whole body sugar scrubbing. The shave was beautiful, but never try to scrub a rampant Lupus rash. There was burning and stinging. Not a bright manuver on my part.
We used "sperm friendly" lubricant, during my ovulation window, to make love every night. I took EPO thru Wednesday, for a better quality cervical mucus. Last night, I was having weird cramping sensations in my lower abdomen. Egg implantation? We'll know in a few more days...

Plan of Attack

I now must personalize my fertility restoration plan. I need to order some vitamins, minerals and other supplements. I have already started taking EPO (Evening Primrose Oil) for healthier cervical fluid. I need to cut out my morning latte', and evening glass of red wine. I have discovered some great Minute Maid anti-oxidant juice, I will be substituting for wine. I also need to schedule in at least one yoga session a day.
Part of my plan includes a daily foot massage from my hubby. It is good for improving blood flow to all of one's organs, especially the reproductive ones.

Finished the Book

I finished the book yesterday. It has a lot of natural and inexpensive suggestions for improving your fertiltiy. The premis is for you to use Traditional Chinese Medicine, to solve your infertiltiy issues. My problems seem to stem from my Qi being off in my kidneys and spleen.
"Pregnancy Miracle" also mentions some simple self care procedures you can do to relax your body, and increase the blood flow to your reproductive organs.

Only 100 pages to go

I made it to page 200, last night. The book does have some wonderful information on acupressure, vitamins, minerals, and herbs. It has great ideas on natural ways of improving your body systems, thus increasing your fertility.

So far, Not much new

I am up to page 87. The book, so far, has repeated everything I had already learned on my own, thru other resources. It has pointed out a few acupuncture/acupressure points that may be useful in increasing the blood flow to certain organs, thus improving their functionality. This book may be good for somebody who hasn't done much research on the natural approaches to increasing your fertility.

Here We Go

Losing our baby in June 2009, was devastating. At the end of September, I was finally feeling up to the possibility, of once again, trying to build our family. Then, I got the news that my mother had passed. I'm heartbroken. I was so looking forward to watching her play with my children. Mom was funny and creative; just what every grandma needs to be. She was only 58. Life is so short. None of us know how many heartbeats we have in us.
I am in the middle of a Lupus flare, which is not the time to become pregnant. Studies show a higher rate of pregnancy complications, when a women becomes pregnant, while in the midst of a flare. Based on previous flares, this one should be over in about a month.
In the mean time, I am going to start reading a book I found on the internet, that promises to hold the secrets to reversing infertiltiy issues. I bought the e-book Pregnancy Miracle yesterday. I start reading tomorrow. Wish me luck!
