I took Stina's advice and looked around for an acupuncturist and found one in the town i work in. The receptionist said he has dealt with fertility issues but not many (the town only has about 8,000 ppl) but she said that they had 3 different women come in this year and out of 3 2 became preg the first month.

Now im not expecting miracles to happen Im just hoping to become more relaxed. She said to expect to come around 2-4 times a month.

Dh actually really wants me to go...and thats odd since he is a tight wad LOL

Our 18 month old godson came over last night and it was sooo sweet to see dh with him....later that night dh was asking about what our next step would be and we both agreed that maybe more IUI's would work for us. I get really stressed out with the u/s and shots that go along with gift. IUI's are much more relaxed for us and maybe with the help of acupuncture we would get a bfp

That's great! I think you'll really enjoy it. It is so relaxing!

I had my 2nd appointment last night, and there were some new things done. "Cupping" was done to relieve back and neck tension, and I looooved it (google it, it's interesting)! The only side effect for me was some huge hickey looking things on my back -- everything is definitely feeling less tense. Also, this week acu really helped with my fluid retention -- I've been on bcp for IVF for the past 3 weeks, and I'm experiencing major side effects, one of which is bloating. Well, let me tell you, I peed about 6 times last night after acupuncture (I hardly drank anything), and today, I can see my stomach muscles again! It's pretty crazy -- I never knew acupuncture could help with that.
