Hi Rebecca -- I came across your blog through Sara's blog. I hope you don't mind comments from a stranger. I wanted to share my acpuncture story with you. My husband has CF and received a double lung tx in 2001. In 2006 we decided to try to have a child through IVF. I had used acpuncture before and read how it could improve one's chances with IVF so I went to pretty much weekly treatments with my acpuncturist during our cycle and after egg transfer. I also participated in an acpuncture study our center was doing (SRM, in Seattle) and had acpuncture immediately before and after egg transfer. I was blessed and lucky to become pregnant and carry our son Liam to term successfully. I had acpuncutre throughout the first trimester about every other week to support healthy pregnancy. Will's sister had tried to have a baby through IVF and had gone through at least 3 cycles. On her last cycle she added acpuncture and she will celebrate her daughter's 1-year birthday this April. I am a real believer that acpuncture can help; I've never had a painful or unplesant experience with the needles. I wish you all the luck in the world and hope for the very best outcome.
I appreciate any comments. Thanks for visiting.
I do acupuncture and LOVE it! Def works for helping to conceive (It's the keeping the baby thing I'm still having problems with.....)
