It’s so “funny” how quickly the time passes during the first 2 weeks of your cycle, but once you pass ovulation and you enter the 2WW it just drags on. I can’t believe today is CD7 for me, which means I’ll take my last dose of Clomid tonight and start my injections!
I received amazing news from a close friend of mine last night (the one who also has been suffering with male factor infertility and lost her twins last November). She is now 7 weeks pregnant. She attributes a lot of her success from acupuncture and staying away form soy and dairy. On their first cycle trying again they did IUI with Femara only, she didn’t want to run the risk of twins again, which I completely understand. She said she is happy, but terrified. I’m just so happy that God blessed them with another baby, and on their first try, because I know how much it takes out of someone having those failed cycles and I’m not sure how much more they could have taken. I’ve heard so many positive things about acupuncture, and if this cycle doesn’t work out for us I think it’s something I’d like to look into. They’re coming to visit us in a few weeks and I’m just so excited that she’s pregnant again. Now, this is not to say I’m not a little jealous…..I do wish I was pregnant too, but she just has a special place in my heart because of all of their struggles. I hope and pray that this IS their rainbow baby and that in 8-ish months they can take that baby home with them.
