Still hope at 44

I tried something new yesterday - Bowen therapy. I really don't know much about it, except that it can be very healing. It's kind of strange how I happened in to this, like it was meant to happen. I was at a birthday party a few months ago at Chuck E Cheese. I was knitting while my daughter played and my hand kind of locked up and was very painful. One of the other moms from my daughter's class who was sitting near me said she could fix that and started massaging my hand and shoulders. She told me she was a massage therapist and practiced Bowen therapy also. We started talking more about other things and ttc came up, along with my age. She said she had 3 other clients who got pg after therapy with her when nothing else was working. So yesterday I finally was able to get a treatment and she told me that those 3 clients are all 44 years old! One is due next week, another in April, and I'm not sure about the other one. That gives me hope. She told me that she thought one of my issues is fear, probably fear of not having another baby. She said fear can be a huge block in the body, and could very well be keeping me from getting pg, so I need to get rid of this fear. A lot of this was pretty new agey, but I'm open to just about anything these days! She thinks I will be pg within 3 months. I'm going to see her every other week, and the massage felt soooo good. I was really relaxed afterwards.

Désirée, mom to Steven, Juliana, Andrew, Carina, Michaela, and Daniel, ages 19 to 4 and all homebirthed, hoping for a tiebreaker soon!
