Welcome to my blog! Me and DH are 27. We met at the end of our senior year in High School and married three years later on June 25 2005. We have been TTC for over 3 years. Now we are expecting twins in June. I hope to encourage and be encouraged through our journey.

Back from the RE

Friday I went to the RE. I have 3 follies on the right and none on the left. They were measuring between 12 and 14. This morning when I left, 2 were measuring 18 and the other one 14. I am waiting on my BW work to come back to see if I will trigger tonight or tomorrow. Then back to back IUI's.

I also had my first acupuncture appt Friday. I think I'm the type of person who thinks into things way to much. I was a tiny bit nervous when I showed up. He started out with a few in my feet and legs then worked up to my stomach. He placed one in between my eyes and a few in my head and some in my arms. By this point I was ok with them. None had really hurt and most of them I didn't feel. Then came two in both of my ears, they stung pretty bad but not unbearable. After he told me night night and left the room the one in the top of my left ear started hurting. Like a small throbbing pain. So then of course I couldn't relax at all. I was concentrating on the pain the entire time. After he came back he asked how I felt, I explained to him about my ear, he said that was a point for my uterus. So not a 100% sure what he meant about that. Then once he took one of the needles out of my stomach it bruised pretty bad and was extremely sore the next 2 days. He said something about me eating sugar and having lots of heat.

Today I went back for another appt. This time he placed a few in my legs and arms, and around 20 in my back. After that he hooked me up to the machine that sends electrical impulses. It didn't hurt but it wasn't relaxing at all. After the 30 minutes he took them out and made me lay on my back. He then proceeded to stick the longest needle EVER in my stomach. OMGoodness it was sooooo painful. It felt like he was twisting and turning it. I told him that it hurt pretty bad and he said it was because he was touching my uterus. WHAT?!?!?

I know a bunch of people have told me they loved it but I'm still waiting for the jury to come back. I don't know if this is normal or what but if so I don't think I wanna go back. Have any of you experienced what I described or should I find another doctor to go to?

  1. That accu sounds intense! Not sure if that's normal procedure as I have never been, but I would def ask around and see what others think.

    Good luck with the IUI's!!!
