Wecome July ICLWs!

Welcome to my blog. I'd like to thank you for taking the time to visit! The support this community has offered me has really made a difference in dealing with IF.

In short (let's see how short I can make it) I'm 27 DH is almost 27 and we've been married for four years together for eleven. We've been trying to conceive our first little bug for 19 cycles now. We both had testing done in February and everything came back looking normal.

Well this journey has not been so normal for us and were learning how to live in this akward phase. It's tough but we get through cycle by cycle.

The doctor wanted to put me on clomid and I didn't feel good about that. Instead i decided to go a bit more natural. I had been seeing a traditional Chinese medicine doctor for stomach ailments which he had cured. He happens to be a fertility specialist. We decided to give him a try and both DH and I are getting acupuncture twice monthly, daily herbs, vitamins and a more active lifestyle with an improved diet. We've both been feeling great. Last weekend I was wrapping up my second cycle on this new regimen.

I took A test last weekend and it was a faint positive! The next day I took another one and it was even lighter. Long story short doctors confirmed a chemical pregnancy.

I'm bum but at the same time I see this as a small victory. This is the farthest I've ever gotten. As one blogger friend commented things can only go up from here (I hope$.

Our planned weekend getaway coincided this weekend and it couldn't have been better timing. I'm truy enjoying the fresh air and the beauty that is nature.

Again thanks for stopping by and I hope you stick around. Sorry for typos. We have no I termed connection so I've been blogging from my iPhone.

Hi from ICLW!

How's the TCM going? I was doing the herbs at one point but stopped when I realised I needed surgery. I also thought they looked and smelled like pond water. Still having acupuncture though.

I've heard wonderful things about natural therapies, including acupuncture. Hoping that your time is just around the corner!

Hi from ICLW - I'm also doing TCM and acupuncture - though taking a break from the herbs because of a Letrozole/IUI cycle.

I'm so sorry to hear about your chemical PG but it is a hopeful sign that you can GET pregnant! Lots of luck and wishes that TCM works for you.

Visiting from ICLW. I am so sorry to hear about your chemical pregnancy. But am happy to see that you are encouraged that your new path of alternative medicine is working. Good luck going forward.

Yay and Boo for the chemical pregnancy! At this point in my journey, I'd be happy for that type of result. *sad smile* May everything continue to get better from here on out! I had my first acupuncture appointment yesterday and enjoyed it. I hope it will do wonders for me.
