In fact, thanks to a great recommendation(s) and some major research, I've started doing acupuncture. And trust me when I say that I am not the type of person that tries something like acupuncture. Anything outside of my comfort zone tends to make me....anxious
My review so far: I LOVE it!! It's hard to explain why, but it really is just so relaxing. And I can't shut my brain off like they probably hope for 20 minutes while I lay there. I listen to music or check my FB or plan out the rest of my evening, etc. But it works. It somehow relaxes me. I don't understand it. I don't know if it's actually a physical thing or if it's just all in my head, and I don't care. Maybe it won't be the key to pregnancy for us. But if it continues to make me feel better, then I'm sticking with it.
Anyway, I get asked a lot about where we are in the process. And all I can say is, "We're smack dab in the middle of it, I suppose". If nothing happens in the next few months, I'll go ahead and make an appointment with an RE (reproductive endocrinologist - aka fertility specialist). Then we'll probably have more tests run, or at least the same one's we've already had done re-run. Then I'm sure IUI will be at the top of our list. But that's still several months away. My sense of urgency has dissipated greatly, and I'm A-Ok with that, my friends.
I'll leave you with this delightful picture. If you can't handle needles, LOOK AWAY!!
