I know I'm being a pain in the patooty but I've got good vibes for a BFP and I'm hoping it's coming from you. Im 2DPO and I have a hangnail so I must be pregnant!! LOL. Thinking nothing but positive thoughts.

Hi D. Thanks for thinking of me. I haven't been online for a couple of days. I am cd 6. AF was still very lite with really bad cramps. And I have had headaches now for the last 4 days. DH's SA was pretty rotten last week. But other than that, all is well. LOL! DH is now taking his vit. and I am taking an herbal formulation that I hope helps with my TCM issues. Maybe things will start getting in sinc, now. This headache is killing me. I am going to have to go to bed soon. How have you been doing?

Damn!! I'm so sorry. I was really hoping. I am currently 6DPO without a sign in sight unless being tired is one. Of course, I would also have to admit that my two beagles, who sleep with us, have been restless so they could be contributing! LOL. Hey, you'll get 'em this cycle for sure! Start meditating! Decrease the stress. That will do wonders. There's another book I'm going to push at ya: Conquering Infertility. She talks all about the links between stress and infertility. Great read! Sigh. We'll tackle that witch yet! Right?

No sign can be a good sign. You just never know. I really love "The Infertility Cure". She describes me perfectly. In one part she says that women in my catagory (cold uterus) often get a feeling about a week before AF is due and just "know" they are not preg. That is so me! Almost every month about 8 dpo I just know it didn't happen. I am really getting into using her suggestions (herbs, acupressure). But last month, I did everything right and all of my symptoms got worse. I don't know if that means I need to try harder or if it just needs time. I hope it doesn't need too much time. DH's SA was really low last week, so I put him on some vitamins also (he promises he will take them). I am hoping that in 2 or 3 months everything will line up and it will happen for us. With DH gone so much it is hard to BD on the right days. I am afraid that we will miss it for sure this month. It all depends on O. We'll make it if I O on cd 12 or cd 17 (it is usually cd 15-16) otherwise it'll be a bust. We will definately conquer our issues, in time, I hope!

The rule of thumb (and I can't remember if she covers it in the book) is that for every year that you've been suffering the problem, it will take a month of TCM to correct. So, if our infertility started 8 years ago, it may take us 8 months, and so on. The name of the game is patience, I'm afraid. This is by far the toughest thing I've ever done, and I've done plenty. But the reward will be so much worth it in the end. And I have full faith that you will succeed! If you want to get in touch with me sooner (I'm not often here) just email me or find me over at the other site. I've been spending a lot of time over there so it's easy to catch me.

I was only on the pill for about a year and a half. Then started ttc (3 years now). So I don't really now how long I have been messed up. I guess I can count on at least 3 months of working on it. Well, 2 more and we'll see where we are. I think I found to other site.
