We're hoping the same Catemer.
Second acupuncture session this morning, pulses def better than the first session just need to stop the iron tabs and get the old intestines working easier... Lol.
Diet this month has been amazing in comparison, and feeling awesome for it. Organics, lots of earthy foods, flaxseed, chia seed, quinoa, super foods everywhere lol. Also including daily maca with the hope it helps. Will be interesting to see at tomorrows appt if it's made any difference yet.
The first appt is always the worst in each cycle I think. Never too much happening. I was encouraged by the fact at least this time there was something bigger than the other follies,but no leader yet. DP was quite negative which makes it hard, it often seems like a complete drag for her or she complains a lot more at least, then doesn't understand why I feel guilty cos my body is the one not playing nice. Ah the joys. I had said from the outset this is our lost shot at iui, we throw everything at it, diet, acupuncture, refuse to accept stress and stay positive. Here we are back at step one, back in the old frame of mind and it's annoying when I've busted my butt to change everything. Blerk.... Sorry just had to get that out to people who may, or may not understand.
I've said to DP if we need to progress to ivf I want a break til near the new year. She doesn't get it, I have major work changes in November that mean momentus workload on me cos my leadership counterpart will be overseas, along with our engagement party which I really haven't done more than book a venue. I know I can't juggle that many balls and devote all
My energy to baby making, ESP when we travel 3 hours each way for appointments, but she doesn't get why I don't want to just press on. Phew that's good to offload!
As a non-bio mum it is hard, but I wouldn't take my frustrations out on my DP the last thing u need is more stress!
Take that break, your body and mind needs it. Hope you are ok xx
Thanks, it's prob not frustrations out on each other so much as I think we both get a bit lost as to how to support each other and communication breaks down a little in times of stress.
We'll get there! It really is such an all consuming process, we really need to make time somehow to still enjoy each other and forget about things too!
How's things travelling for you guys?
