2 Mommies and a Baby

our April attempt

Our next attempt will be in about 6 or 7 days. We’ll probably have a conversation with the doc to see if she thinks we should do two attempts this month.
We are also thinking that Lois should pay a visit to our acupuncturist friend for a little “fertility treatment” the morning of the IUI.
In the meantime, L&B had their baby (boy) last night and S&K had their baby (boy) on April 8th. More people are announcing pregnancies every day and Lois almost went over the edge when Melissa announced on her website that Tammy is pregnant with twins!
Last night, we even had a discussion that involved someone who knew someone (straight girl) who just discovered she was pregnant and didn’t know who the father was.
What the &%^#$*?
If only we had such luck!

I think acupuncture is great...seems to have helped me conceive. I had two sessions a few days apart in the 10 days before our conception attempt. I also drank this herbal tea blend formulated by a fertility specialist. (Fertilitea/Dr. Amos Grunebaum) What else? We did two inseminations 8-12 hours apart and that seems to increase the odds. Also...we waited until the OPK showed a fairly dark second line, rather than just the moment it tested positive. Is IVI at home out of the question? I've done both IVI and IUI. It's hard to relax in the doctor's office (though we did stay in there for an hour afterwards, with my legs up on the wall)...I'm sure you've heard that having an orgasm helps those swimmers along...and it really seems to be true. So that's something to consider too. Sorry if this is too much information! Wishing you good luck on your next try.
