Welcome September ICLWs!

September ICLW

Thank you so much for stopping by! Without the support of the blogging community I do not know how I would get by some months. I love making new friends, learning about your journey and sharing mine. As much support I receive from others I hope I can be of some support to you too.

A quick version of what's going on: My husband and I are 27 (he's almost don't like to remind him that he's younger then a couple of months thought :-) hehee). We've been trying to conceive our first child since January 2010! That puts us over the year and a half mark. We've been diagnosed with unexplained infertility (lucky us) and were told by the doctor in May to go on clomid. We decided that was not what was best for us at the moment so we decided to try Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We've loved it, felt great and in July 2011 saw my very first positive ever!

The pregnancy did not hold and I had a very early miscarriage aka chemical pregnancy. As much as we were elated to have gotten so far this still has been a painful loss for us even two months later. I feel that I'm still mourning.

We are continuing with TCM and I'm going to be starting a new set of herbs in one week. We'll see what changes that brings. For more details on my journey see my sidebar or tab above.

I hope you stick around!

I am so sorry for your loss and that you have to go through any of this. My DH and I have been trying for about a year now, and plan to get back on track with TCM and trying as naturally as we can for the rest of this year.

I wish you all the luck in the world and hope that your second BFP is right around the corner.

Happy ICLW!
It's great to see you and your husband trying TCM. I've gone to acupuncture, but there is no way I'd ever get my husband to go that route.

Are you both taking the herbs? Do you see a doctor or can you get the herbs over the counter? I hear a lot about it but don't know many details.
So sorry for your loss, after my first miscarriage it took me a long time to be able to talk about it without tears. Let yourself be sad. The hope that dies with pregnancy loss is almost more painful than the loss itself.
Wishing you every success in the future!
