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:
