Last stop on the 2IF train — The Bump

Last stop on the 2IF train

So I just made an appointment with a licensed acupuncturist and TCM practioner.  I have been researching this since the day my ET was cancelled and found one that I really connected with.  I made an appointment for my 1st consult on Thursday and I am so scared.  I am working on changing my diet and am fully commited to whatever I need to do.  Am I crazy for thinking that this could really work?  I really don't ever want to go back to an RE again.  Thanks for letting me be a PW today!

Re: Last stop on the 2IF train

  • I think this is a great choice!  I have been doing it for about 3 months now and I am happy with it so far.  It's not a quick fix, so it's hard to be patient, but I do think it's going to work soon.  I just wish it weren't so expensive.  

     Good luck and let us know how the consult goes.

  • Yes! That is great news! You are def not crazy to think that it could work. Like Twizzle said, it is not a quick fix, though. My accupuncturist said that it takes up to 9 months to get pregnant when you start. I feel so much better since starting. I think the biggest change has been my mood. I used to be so quick to get angry or cry and now I am able to let most things roll of my back. I feel great! I hope you love it. Can't wait to read your updates.

  • Hang in there! Like the PPs said, results will not be immediate at all, but in conjunction with all else you have been doing, I feel really optimistic that you can make some amazing changes and get your "when" Little Mac!

  • You have made a great choice for sure! I feel so much more relaxed since I started Acupuncture.  I have made small diet changes and I think that they have made a difference as well.  Keep us posted.  We are here to be your cheerleader!!

  • I think there's a lot of research to support it's use!  I have recently found an acupuncturist I really like.  I have been reading that book by Randine Lewis, which seems to be really well done, and explains how TCM may work.

    The reproductive endocrinologists believe in it!  My RE suggested I try it.  

    Personally I also find it very relaxing and refreshing - that has to be a good thing.
