The Plan

After buying an odd mix of products yesterday (I’m still missing a couple of things that I’ll hopefully pick up tonight), I’ve decided that this is my plan for this upcoming cycle…
No Clomid – Possibly FertilAid throughout (talking to acupuncturist CD4 about it)
BBT temping throughout
Fertility Yoga throughout
Prenatal vitamins throughout
Circle+Bloom Meditation Program throughout
FertiliTea throughout
*Weekly Acupuncture throughout
*Body Brushing throughout to help keep me detoxed
*Vitex Supplement throughout
*Herbs (Women’s PreciousWu Chi Pai Feng Wan until O time)
*Herbs (fennel & cypress essential oils in castor oil to rub on my lower abdomen –
2x/day for 3 days, then 3 days off)
Evening Primrose Oil until O time (1000 mg morning & night with meals)
Pre-Seed around O time
*Herbs (Arouse Vigor from O time through 2ww)
Pomegranate juice from O time through 2ww
I know it kind of looks like a lot all laid out like that, but it’s such a routine for me now that it really doesn’t stress me out, so that’s good. Basically during meal times, I end up popping a couple pills, drinking a shot of juice, or dropping a bit of essential oil on my tongue. Amazing how anything can become routine if you do it long enough… 
*Suggested by my acupuncturist.

I wanted to write you back on there but it wouldn't let me answer you because you don't follow me..I am Laurie, but my twitter acct is under marylululu..and i just started following you on there today..sorry for the super long comment..

  4. Love the picture!There have been countless months that I've bought preg. tests and tampo.ns. πŸ™‚

  5. Oh my god we use the same tampons. SCORE!!!!

  6. Cant wait to hear how this goes for you this next month! Keep us updated!

  7. How do you like the fertility yoga? Is it really any different from regular yoga?

  8. I hope this cycle works out for you! Can't wait to hear what's going on!

  9. Have you done pomegranate juice before? I tried it and nearly gagged – it's so freakin disgusting! I can't stomach it. At All.I want to hear about fertility yoga too! Can't wait for the updates and best of luck to you!

  10. Jo – Sounds like a good plan to me! I know what you mean, it sounds like a lot, but we are so used to it that fortunately it's routine now!I'm curious about the Circle + Bloom meditation CD's. Have you used them before? Would you recommend them? They seem to be popping up a lot lately…

  11. @hopeisafourletterword – I haven't tried the DVD yet honestly. πŸ™‚ My goal is to get it out of its wrapper and give it a shot though! I won it in a TTC giveaway.@Desiree – I honestly love pom juice. I can't drink a ton of it, but mixed with sprite & vodka it's delicious πŸ˜‰ When drinking it for TTC, I usually just drink a shot glass worth or two every meal.@Amanda – I love CircleBloom – i sleep much better when I listen to it before bed, and I like the visualizations and focusing.

  12. What an array of products! Good for you for trying out natural supplements. I always have the attitude..well, it can't hurt and if anything, they will make my body healthier in one way or another! I am excited to hear how this month goes for you! And let us know about the yoga dvd once you try it out. πŸ™‚

  13. I think you made a wonderful decision. Your body needs a break from the clomid treatments. I hope it works for you, I will say lots of prayers and keep everything crossed. I have a good feeling about all this!!!

  14. Hi there! I just came across your blog. I'm very interested in this list you posted. How did you hear about Circle Bloom? I recently came across it (actually last night!) and I did the sample session for IUI/IVF cycles. Have you been doing Circle Bloom a lot? What is your experience with it? I would appreciate any input you have!I envy how organized and put together you are! And I pray all your efforts work for you! :)~Bobbi @

  15. Glad you are giving the clomid a bit of a rest. I hope you have as much success with the acupuncture as I did! Remember to keep stress levels low. Anything that worries you or stresses you out, try to push it out of your mind.
