pineapples,acupuncture, therapy, mediation, laughing, Brazil nuts….

T minus 35 days until my transfer.  I’m now in full-on “preparation” mode.  I’m trying to eat super good and I have been working out about 3 times a week-something that seemed impossible only a few months ago with my horrendous commute.  I’m also trying to increase my meditation practice-which comes in handy on crowded subway trains while wedged into someone’s smelly armpit.  I reached out to my acupuncturist and will start going once a week (and the day of the transfer).  Oh and I’m squishing in a new therapist as well.  And don’t forget the doctor’s appointments that will ramp up soon!  My doctor’s office is about a 45 minute drive from my house/work too.  One thing about trying to conceive with infertility issues is that its so much work.  I literally have something body/fertility related almost every day for the next few weeks…

Speaking of “preparation,”  I have been hearing about so many natural remedies and studies about IVF on the single mothers by choice blog recently:

Apparently, eating pineapple helps with embryo implantation:  pineapple for fertility.

So can Brazil nuts: Brazil nuts.

Oh and laughing the day of the embryo transfer may increase chances by 2.67% laughing and IVF.

I take all of this advice with a grain of salt but given that I like pineapple and nuts and laughing, I will probably give it a shot.

Oh and I absolutely love having the option of working from home.  Here is a picture of my adorable view from yesterday:
