Moving Forward

I'm feeling pretty optimistic today. Could it be the tea? ;)

More likely it's because I feel like I'm finally making some progress. I start Clomid tonight and I've been trying to let myself think positively about it. I wasn't joking about the visualization thing yesterday - my friend Katherine has been trying it lately (for other reasons of course) and suggested it to me. I figured why not? I'm not getting overly hopeful because I know the chances aren't great that the Clomid will even work, and it's only a one-time thing for now. But it's about time I let myself be a little excited about something TTC-related. It's been such an enormous weight for so long, I can't remember the last time I thought, "Maybe it really will happen soon."

But wait, there's more!

I asked hubs last night if I could get acupuncture/TCM now and just put it on a credit card, and to my great surprise, he agreed! Ideally we wanted to wait until after we paid our taxes, and I'm not thrilled with the idea of financing it... But we've put very little money into TTC thus far and I really feel like I need to try something. Soon. I'm going to shop around and try to find the best deal, so I don't think it will end up being terribly expensive. I'm really tempted to go to this place right around the corner from my work, which boasts the highest pregnancy rates in the area, but it looks pricey so I'll have to find out about their fees first.

So yep, that's where I'm at today. It helps that it's Thursday too, which is my second favorite day of the week (my favorite being Friday right when I get off work of course), and it's also bowling night tonight! Dare I say, it's a good day. :)

Hope yours is going well too!

Go Kitty!!! Hope the Clomid does the trick!

Good luck with finding an acupuncturist! That's one thing I've never looked into. Hmm......

WAhoo for the optimisim tea!! Can't wait to see how accu helps you, I only had 1 session, and quit. She charged me $150, ouch! and you want me to come how often? no thanks. . . I hate living around HHI, everything is overpriced for tourists.

Acupuncture! Yikes! But I'm a baby when it cones to needles.
Wow! We are cycle buddies again. I started clomid on Tuesday. So far no side effects.
Good luck with the clomid and the tea! I wish I liked the taste of tea. It just has the oddest taste.

Great to hear that the tea is doing it's job; I'm anxious to know how the acupuncture works - good luck!

Good luck with the Clomid!

I'm looking forward to hearing about the acupuncture, I've thought about that in the past. My doc told me, I'd likely end up taking the clomid route if T's numbers are better after his surgery. Here's hoping you have good luck with it!

Good luck with the Clomid! Let us know what you decide about the accupuncture!

Yeay for acupuncture!! Some people swear by it.

Good luck with the Clomid. I hope it does the trick for you.

I hope the Clomid works for you! Stay optimistic, anything you haven't tried is worth a shot. And anything you do try should be tried for a minimum of 3 Cs. Besides, I'll probably be on Clomid in a couple months. I need you to stay optimistic so I can!

What tea are you drinking? I love tea. My new fav is an herbal peppermint that is great at calming my stomach. :)
