Blessed Chiropractor!!

I have dealt with back issues for, well, I guess forever. At least it seems that way. I have the back of an 80 year old. And not an spry 80 year old used-to-be-a-triathlon runner, but the hunched-over have-to-use-a-walker kind of 80 year old. Because of this I tend to get migraines when my back is out of place. I also get them from hormonal changes. Between AF, Lupron and my back being out of place I have been miserable for the past 3 or 4 days. I went to my wonderful chiropractor today and he fixed me back up! (get it?? 'back' up!) I already feel better and my headache is dissipating. YAY! I will still get migraines from the hormonal part of it all but it should be less.

I love to visit my chiropractor because he is so optimistic that this transfer is going to work. He asks me all of the time how things are going and is always so encouraging. While there I set up my appointments for acupuncture. He would like for me to do 4 treatments before the FET and 2 after, but we just cannot afford it. I am going to go at least 2 times before and one after the transfer. I have never done acupuncture before and am a little curious about it. I am willing to try it if it might increase our chances.

Everything else is right on schedule. Aunt Flo showed up right on time, which is kind of scary. Rarely is she so cooperative! But, hey, I'm not complaining. I continue lupron this week and will begin several more drugs next Monday as well as have my first ultrasound. Just 3 1/2 weeks left to go!!!! Time sure flies when you are hopped up on hormones!


  1. Yes, time does fly! HUGS MY FRIEND!! Acupuncture is a CINCH! If I can do it, anyone can! AND it relaxes you and increases the chances of pregnancy. I went immedietly before and after the transfer. This is recommended.

  2. I've heard several people mention accupuncture. What's the deal with that? Does it really increase your chances? I've never really been into all that "holistic" medicine so I don't know what to think about that.

  3. I know people that swear by it. There is a lady on a forum that I am a member of that has been ttc for 7 years. After 1 month of acupuncture she got pg without even trying! It is worth a try for me!!!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
