Jumping the Shark on the Baby Journey

I'm no Fonzie, but what tomorrow has in store is something that borders on the absurd for this main-line-believer-in-all-things-Western-medicine-girl: acupuncture. Save the comments -- I KNOW that it increases blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, increases rates of pregnancy, decreases stress, etc. etc. ad nauseum. I FEEL like our path has veered on over to the absurd, and we'll soon have a beloved character return from the dead or there will be an unnaturally-aged toddler in our house or something. Sigh. The motto is, whatever works. The things we do, no?

I'm going to an acpuncture consultation this week too -- and I am exactly like you. I sent in a Barren Advice question to Stirrup Queens, I would love to hear some stories about acupuncture actually working. Let me know how it goes for you!

I did it for three or four months last year, and I'm starting again next Monday. I know what you mean about it, but I'm willing to do anything to make my IVF successful.

Its great and Martha is wonderful - enjoy it! I promise I'm proof that it helps - my doctor is a big believer in her herbs! I'm assuming you are at ART if they sent you to Martha? Have I already asked you that?
