Even though I'm new to the board, I feel compelled to respond to your Mary's email re: Randine Lewis. She also helped me get pregnant. I now have an 18 month old. When I lived in Houston, I was initially able to get pg on my own once I understood ovulation etc. however, I had a miscarriage when I was 37 and the baby was 10 weeks. Anyway, I was utterly devastated. I was an emotional wreck and was constantly crying. My hubby felt that stress was impacting my ability to conceive. I'm a social worker by profession and had a co-worker who was being treated by Randine for fibroid tumors. Anyway, I looked up her website and for the first time in months I felt very hopeful. When I met with her she was very thorough when conducting her medical evaluation. She was also very caring and empathetic and I found myself pouring out my heart to her. She also had experienced miscarriages before conceiving. Anyway, I had already tried one round of clomid when I came to see Randine so she tailored the accupuncture to help my uterus be more receptive to implantation. I also had read "Inconceivable" and practiced some of the imagery exercises. Anyway, I did another round of clomid this time with intrauterine insemination and hot damn, I was pregnant. Unfortunately, I had cramping from the get go and my RE was out of town. I called RAndine and she told me to hop in my car to come and see her. I was taking some of the herbal supplements so Randine made some adjustments. She also reviewed my lab work, specifically, the progesterone levels and she was amazed at the levels. She gave me alot confidence that this would be a viable pregnancy and it was! I saw her thru my first trimester and then stopped because we moved to Florida. I really feel that she helped us get pg and I thank my lucky stars that I was open to an alternative tx.
I'm now 40 about to turn 41 in Sept. and thinking off ttc for baby #2 but I'm scared to death of the risks for chromosomal abnormalities. I have a healthy beautiful little girl. I don't know if I would be rolling the dice. I meet with my ob/gyn tomorrow to find out what the risks are. Does anyone have any up to date info? Mary, I wish you and all of the ladies on the board the best of luck.
