Inspiring success stories
I just wanted to say THANK YOU from the very bottom of my heart!
The thing is… I had to cancel my IVF today…. Because… Guess what?
I’M ALREADY PREGNANT!!!
I don’t have a clue as to why this suddenly happened in our 21st TCC, only two weeks prior to the egg retrieval, but all I know is that I had a perfect ovulation this time. The mucus was clear and stretchy, and my body didn’t have to try for it more than once. The OPKs came back negative until it was time for the egg to go (as opposed to previous ovulations, where they could come back positive, then negative, then positive 4 days in a row and THEN ovulation would occur), and everything just felt so right this time. Perhaps my hormones finally got it right, and that my body has found its balance?
Needless to say; I have never been happier in my entire life. I’m having a baby in November!! I’m going to be a mom!!! After more than two years of sweat, blood and tears, we have finally made it, and we did it without shooting my body full of medication (except for the nasal spray) and having my eggs ripped out of me and put in a test tube, too… I am so utterly happy right now; I can’t even begin to tell you…
I have been following many of your advice lately, and I want to thank you so much for providing me with a very strong and positive focus and lots of inspiration these last few weeks. It’s been priceless. Your support by just being online has meant very, very much to me. You have given me faith, and you have given me hope.
And who knows; maybe it was one of your articles that actually led to my happiest moment of all times, too? See, I have made some changes in this cycle. And you made it that much easier for me to find good, sound advice and to apply them to my own life.
So, once again: THANK YOU!!!!!!
The world is such a better place with people like you around. Keep up the good work, and please: do not ever lose this passion of yours!
Jeanettes news was so exciting an inspiring I asked her to share with us what she did different this cycle compared to the last year and a half she has been trying to concieve (ttc) with no success.
This is her response:
Hi, Hethir, and thanks for your kind words!
I hope you get thousands of letters like mine, too!
Some of the shifts I did this cycle:
3 days prior to ovulation, I started doing the uterine massage every night until 5 days before I expected AF. I found the cue on your site, and googled it to learn more.
I went to see a chiropractor, as you mentioned in one of your shows. Turns out I had a locking of some sort in my pelvic area, so he has been “cracking me up” – the last session was 5 days after ovulation. And guess what: For years now I have been told I have fibromyalgia. Not so. Turns out that the pain actually originated from my back. The miracles just keep happening to me these days!
I have been frequenting my local health shop, too, and I have been taking both spirulina and coco nut oil in my daily smoothie, as you told me too. I finally got a hold of flax seed oil as well as food based vitamins, but that was only last week and after the egg had been fertilized. I will keep taking them, though, to make sure my wee one gets what s/he needs.
After your site had given me new hope and new inspiration, I finally decided it was time to ditch my homeopath (she always made me feel terribly infertile) and go see someone else. So I found a man in the next city, and he made me feel like the most capable person in the world! A few days after ovulation, he placed a needle at my uterus-point as well as some needles to help heal my pelvic area.
I didn’t do the cleansing though, as my former homeopath put me through a major one just before I found you. I couldn’t even go exercise, as my sweat smelled so badly, so I guess it worked? But you DID make me feel like taking my vitamins again, after I had given up hope and though “whatever” for a while.
I have also tried to do the breathing exercises at least once every day. Oxygen is a very good thing! J And I have made a serious effort to think positive, as I rediscovered the Law of Manifestation (also from a link on your site) and started to believe again.
We have also swopped the “regular” food with ecological alternatives whenever we can the last few months, trying to keep the toxins down to an absolute minimum. And I have been really good, making sure I eat just about right and cutting severely down on the junk. Now I hardly ever drink coke, for example, I actually prefer water or juice.
I have been taking relaxing lavender baths, and used essential lavender oil as a perfume – just to make sure I was relaxed and in harmony throughout the day – preparing for an IVF that never happened.
Besides, I decided to throw away all my cosmetics just before Christmas, and replaced them with ecological ones without parabenes and phatalates. And I stopped smoking back in July, something I admittedly should have done years ago. Maybe my body finally have repaired most of the damage, and gotten rid of the parabenes/phatalates? I’m sure it’s cleaner and more natural now than it’s been since I was 3 years old.
Oh, yes, and this cycle I started chatting with my spirit baby, after I found a cue on your site. I have been listening to those podcasts, and it just felt so right. Maybe I finally convinced him or her to come join us? I even sent a mental note to my niece (she was only two weeks old when I conceived) to please tell her cousin that we were ready for her/him now. Or maybe it was the fact that she fell sound asleep on my chest, 5 days after ovulation (maybe even at the exact same time as implantation occurred, for all I know)? Maybe she made my body and soul just tune in?
Just a few days before I found out I was pregnant, I would suddenly get a very strong feeling that there actually was a baby lying next to me in the couch or on my chest. That feeling was so strong I could almost feel the warmth and smell of my beautiful baby! Maybe it was its way of telling mommy that s/he already was there with me and that I finally could relax, knowing in my heart that a miracle had happened?
I have absolutely no idea why. Maybe it was one or two of these things; maybe it was all of them or a combination? I don’t know. But I do know I will be eternally grateful! So once again:
