Hi and welcome to the board. So sorry for your loss.

Are you charting temps to see if you are ovulating? We can get a positive OPK sometimes and not ovulate. If you aren't having EWCM (egg white cm) then you could try taking Mucinex before O to help.

Yay for Reiki, it makes me ovulate for sure! I've gotten BFP every time I have done it, one blighted ovum and 2 chemicals but it really does something for me. Let me know how it goes. You are the first other person here that is trying it.

I had Reiki before ovulation, usually around CD5 or 7 and I ovulate about day 14. I never had it more than once a cycle. Please keep me posted on that!
Last time I actually felt some weird energy flow through my chest area but the first 2 times I can't claim I actually felt anything at all.
