    Dear Georgie
    I agree with SB - if this is what you truly want then dont let this man upset your plans! I have been seeing a chinese herbalist and acupuncturist for 14 months now and I truly believe she is the reason we got pg with Ethan and held onto him so long (his medical problems were totally random). I also credit her with this pg (I guess DH had a small part to play) but she just knows stuff! She told me originally that I would need 6 months treatment to get my body and mind into a space where I could sustain a pg and I was mortified that she expected me to wait that long. In actual fact she was 100% right and the 6 months went so quickly and I fell pg the first month she suggested we try! We had the same experience after losing Ethan. She said to wait AT LEAST 3 cycles before trying again and of course I ignored her and tried like mad from the first month - none of them worked. The month she told us we could try, we fell pg and she rang me 2 minutes after I tested to say "you are pg aren't you!"! I say if you trust this guy then use his skills but ignore his "spiritual advice".... just my opinion.



    As for me, I have been having HCG tests every 2nd day (for my own sanity and no other reason) and my levels are good! I am having a scan tomorrow to "check for viability" (what a crass term)! I am scared to death that there will be no heart beat - please God help me have a healthy baby!

    Will let you know how I go tomorrow
    Love to you all
    Naomi

    Hi Naomi!! I have had my first Sane hcg test- havent got results back yet- i will have another on friday- i havent quite got the "viablitly" scan organised yet- but i might ask for it on friday when i see the specialist on friday...

    I never saw a chinese healer- but i have seen an energy healer and she came and found me becuase she knew that we were close(i was ACTUALLY preg when SHE came and found ME-i didnt know-but i think she did ) but that i needed some "mental and emotional attention" to help me carry this baby to term. I saw her on saturday and i have NEVER felt so good and positive- she has recomended i see her each month- or as often as i like (free of charge) until i bring this precious little bundle of joy into the world.

    Without help like this it is harder- but who ever is helping you needs to share your ideals of what you hope to acheive...

    Hey Georgie.... i just had a thought- would he have been trying to phyche you out- like reverse cycle thinking???? By telling you its not going to happen- has that made you now more determined???? Just a thought, he probably isnt that smart!!

    Thank you all SB, Anthonysmum, TM, Naomi and of course Mel for your words of wisdom. It makes such a difference to be able to get your inner fears out.
    SB - isn't it incredible how people find you when you need them. I'm so pleased your energy healer has arrived at exactly the right time. I will be thinking of you as you wait for results and get closer to your scan. Nothing is ever easy in this business is it? We spend our whole time waiting for a BFP and then when it comes it opens the door to much larger issues. But I truly believe (despite my emotional outburst) that a positive attitude is everything. You have every reason to be positive and proceed with faith toward that beautiful growing belly.
    Naomi - Fingers crossed for tomorrow for you. The TTC and loss requires a great deal of courage - you too are doing a brilliant job - keep going!!!!!!!! Yep the old chinese medicine people have an incredible reputation...just like your story...my friends have had similar experiences. I think that's why I freaked out so much - because what he said to me was WORLDS apart from what he's told other girlfriends in the past.
    Anthony's mum - I'm so sorry your journey keeps delivering fresh pain. Just like you mentioned in an earlier post sometimes it feels like every day (or test result) is just another kick in the teeth. Somehow our sense of justice says "This can't keep happening" and surely the universe will deliver some news that offers hope. Hang in there sweetie - the fact that this forum even exists proves the strength and courage us girls can muster when we need it. And if we lose our way temporarily - there's always a BB mate to lend you some positive energy until yours comes flying back.
    Mel - thank you once again for your lovely text. I've sent a email to your other address.

    Me, well the dust has settled on the Chinese medicine man's comments, and I have decided I will keep my appointment with him on Thursday. I've heard too many incredible stories to dismiss his opinion after one visit. he was incredibly insightful on other aspects of my life so I'm thinking I might set him to work on those and reserve my judgement on the baby making business until I clarify his comments - this time without the hysterical crying. No point in dropping the bundle now - full steam ahead - IF our little angel isn't meant to be - there will be plenty of time to deal with that - when and if we have to.

    Just a quick update to let you know I had my first scan today and everything looks fine. Size is right for age and heart rate was 128bpm which she says is good - and only one on board, thank God! I have been so sick I was starting to think that I had a couple in there. Have to admit to some tears of relief on the way out the door! Seeing my OB tomorrow and hopefully he can give me a plan to maintain my sanity until this bean has well and truly stuck!

    Hugs to you all
    Naomi

    Hope the OB has a great plan tomorrow - we will all be thinking of you.
    StarBright Hope those positive vibes continue working their magic. Hugs to you for Friday.
    JOWow - are we going to have an influx of gorgeous babies soon. Can you believe it yet? It's been such an exciting month in here. How's DH? keeping it a secret must be killing you - are you ready to scream it from the roofs tops...
    KleeHow are you tonight? Why are you lonely? Hugs to you too.

    naomi - fantastic news hon, as sb said all that head standing seems to be working. good luck with your ob appointment, hope his plan helps your sanity.
    georgie - i was going to post about your accupuncture experience and i am with kat and naomi all the way, don't let someone like that get you down you will have another bub, that i am sure of, it may not be straight away but you will get there hon, go again and see what he can do, it may just be that you need a bit of balancing. I too used chinese medicine to fall this time, in conjunction with the accupuncture, dh played a part lmao, but i'm positive the herbs helped balance out my hormones. i think i took herbs up until 9 weeks, they were to sustain the pg, and i am just starting another batch now, more so for my bloods. so i gues just go back and try not to think of what he said, as hard as it will be, it will only be beneficial for you. my lady too is very straight forward about what she beleives and some of the things she has said i haven't agreed with or not liked but ultimately i think she has been beneficial. does that make sense? sorry if it doesn't.
    the lonely mood, is that df has been working long hours in the lead up to christmas and i really don't get to see him much and am home alone a lot of the time, don't get me wrong sometimes i like the peace and quiet and i do like being by myself but at the moment i just need him to be there you know. i had him home last night and we just sat, talked and cuddled it was just so nice, i even forgot to do some things i had planned which was kind of funny. i think he felt guilty cause i had a fainting spell on sunday. anyway enough of my babble, we have an ob appointment tomorrow so am hoping they can give me a sneak peek of joey.
    hello to everyone, sorry for the babbling

    howdy everyone.
    Barbara- so glad to hear the cysts shouldn't be a ttc problem. sorry the autopsy didn't reveal anything certain for you. this is such a difficult journey, and the guilt and fear are all an unfortunate part of it. big hugs to you.
    SB- sounds like the energy meditation was a good thing. a little healing is always in order.
    Georgie- oh, sweety, i agree with all these other women too. your medical dude has said things in just the wrong way. it doesn't matter if he is alternative or not, talented or not -- no one should predict the future of you wanting or not wanting children in the future. i mean- how does one "get over" that? if he has a way, i have some friends who could benefit. i think, personally, he has a horrible bed side manner and unrealistic expectations of changing your entire being. just take his manner with a HUGE grain of salt, my dear. and don't let him depress you with his manner. i'd like to bop him on the head, to tell the truth. he may be talented, but he's also a jerk.
    Jo- woo hoo!

    Ok - I have been to the OB and he was wonderful.. Had already thought about how I might be feeling and had a plan ready! Blood tests and scans weekly til 12 weeks then fortnightly scans til 29 weeks. He is such a star!

    Thanks for all your kind thoughts - love to you all.

    Ok now Im a bit scared. After my blood tests yeaterday the OB wants me to use progesterone pessaries and said thats prorbaly why I m/c previously. Problem being I had the pessaries for my 2nd and 3rd m/c and still lost them! I found a great pharmacy in Docklands who do the pessaries for $2.20 each and will post them Express post if anyone is interested? They are sooo much cheaper than any of the other pharmacies!

    Wow Naomi, that is so cheap... I am on prog pessaries after my last blood test as well but mine cost me $90 for 7 days!

    I would love the details of the pharmacy

    It is stressful and scary... just try to remember that you have a very good dr looking after you who will do anything possible to get you a healthy baby
