I think you can do all that in FF though too and it's automated. I know you can use C instead of F cuz the Canadian girls use it too. Not to be a FF pusher though! hahahahaa. Just thought it might make it easier for you...

Yes acup works really good on pain. I feell 80% better by the time she puts all the needles in and leaves then I lay there for about 30 min by the time I leave I feel about 95%. I use to go to a chiro and had to go 3 times a week if I was not going for infertility I would probably only need to go 1 - 2 times a month for my neck pain.

So I went to see the fertility doctor yesterday. I cost me an arm and a leg (I hope insurance refunds me ! Good that the invoice says Ob-Gyn and not "fertility" !!) but I got a lot of reassurance. The part I prefer is that, if I get a positive test again, they bring you in the very same day to check on your hormone levels and see if you need anything - in particular progesterone supplementation.

 

I love this given that my concern is not egg meet spermie but rather will that bb stick inside ?!

 

And I got blood test for all possible hormones - including some that fertility doctors usually don't look at such as prolactine and FSH. It feels good to know I started something in case nothing has happened by Oct-Nov and that I don't wait then.

 

So keeping fingers crossed !

 

He told me about the dye test - to see if my tubes are both open. Any of you have done it before ? I'm not sure how I feel about getting chemicals in my uterus... (I'm all about organic and I track down labels on my cosmetics... so you see...)

I had the HSG (hysterosalpinogram, is the full word, I think) test done since I had an ectopic pregnancy last year and lost a tube, they wanted to confirm that my other tube was ok. It was a quick procedure performed at the hospital. Only slightly more invasive then the internal u/s b/c they insert a catheter and inject dye. But it was super quick and for my problems, I'm glad that we did it.

I'm thinking that maybe it's a good idea for me to take, cause if I'm trying "naturally" for a few months just to realize one tube is closed, then I'm losing a lot of time (and I'm turning 38 in Nov so I do not have so much time to waste)...

Plus, we do not know if my prior miscarriage was a tuball miscarriage that could have damaged the tube, or another type of MC (given I never got an ultra sound before I lost my pregnancy).

I'm just a bit reluctant to the idea of the dye sad.gif

I also had the HSG done like Carly said it is not bad at all a little uncomfortable. They will give you a antibotic to take for 3 days to prevent any infection. I think it is good to make sure your tubes are clear. I was also told that you are more fertile up to 6 months after having the test. My doc told me that she has a patient every time she wants to get preg she has it done and 2 months later is pregnant.

Yes, doc told me it would sometimes flush stuff that could obstruct the tubes like old blood etc and therefore, they are well open and it facilitates the way to the egg and then the way for the gg to the uterus...

We have been trying to conceive for almost 2 years. It's me not him. I had the dye test done in November last year and everything was clear, no blockages and good to go. Problem is I don't get a regular cycle therefor not ovulating. I've been on clomid, provera, something else and just came off of 3 months of Metformin - my body isnt responding to either.

 

I am giving my body a break, maybe try again soon but on our own. Ever since then I've lost 15 lbs from exercising and dieting, trying to help my body start to ovulate on its own because sometimes that is all it needs is a little weight loss - but we all know that plus sized woman or obese woman can and do get pregnant!

 

It's just heartbreaking seeing all these prego mommies but than I think to myself - I don't know what road they had to take to get to where they are. It's heartbreaking nonetheless but i'm sure our time will come. The part that I am not fond of is all these teenagers who go out to the bar for a good time and are knocked up by some random. That's where it really bugs me.

 

Sending baby dust to all of you TTC~!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
