Hi,

I've been lurking here for about 6 months and this is the first time I have been able to report a bfp! My dh and I decided 6 months ago to just use herbs, acupuncture, positive thoughts and prayers to TTC and it looks like that might have worked! I'm hoping this is it!

Appreciate your prayers!

Meels,
Congratulations! I will include you in my prayers. How old are you? Did you have any previous children or m/c? I'm thrilled for you - have a happy healthy 9 months!

Hi,

I am 40, no kids, abortion at 19, been trying for more than 3 years. Tried 3 cycles of clomid, 1 cycle of perganol, and the last 6 months just doing herbs and acupuncture. Ironically this last month we were in the process of getting our adoption paperwork in. We finally found an agency we really liked and were just a week away from our home study. So, my dh and I are still really in shock. After trying so long I really had accepted the fact that it wasn't going to happen.

So, my formula for this last month was to totally give up TTC, I wasn't even doing the herbs or acupuncture. I had cut down on my exercise because years ago a doctor told me my low body fat may be a problem so instead I was back to killer workouts, I started drinking again (i've never been a "drinker"...for me drinking means a few sips of wine with dinner as opposed to drinking absolutely no alcohol at all the last few years), and honestly my dh and i only had sex a few times because he was on a business trip most of the month. We definitely know when the conception date was.

I don't know what to think about all of this. I'm definitely appreciative and grateful though because it was a long, difficult journey getting here! And, we're just starting!

Happy,
meels

It's interesting how many people get pregnant when they stop meds and other "stuff". I'm thrilled for you, again - here's to a happy healthy 9 months for you.
