I know that so many of you going through this can COMPLETELY relate to what I am getting ready to discuss. Here we go.
I remember when we were first trying to get pregnant and everyone was telling me to eat pineapple core while in the tww. This is suppose to aid in implantation (FAIL)
I remember starting 81mg aspirin because this was also suppose to aid in implantation (FAIL)
Laying in bed with my feet up over my head like an idiot for ten minutes (FAIL)
Putting a tampon in after ejaculation to help keep everyone in place (FAIL)
Having sex in certain positions to help get spermies into fighting position (FAIL)
Cut down on carbs (FAIL)
Lose some weight and get BMI at 25 or under (FAIL)
Cut gluten out ( was going to try and now I am realizing I am done, so FAIL)
Pump your body full of progesterone (FAIL)
Cut out caffeine (FAIL)
No alcohol (FAIL)
No iubeprofen during the tww (FAIL)
No heating pads during tww (FAIL)
No sex during tww (FAIL)
Take a shitload of vitamins daily (FAIL) Now you officially look like a senior citizen and can prove it by your big ass pill divider.
I am sure that I am missing about 100 other things and please feel free to add something. Now after four years I have been doing most of this stuff. I absolutely refuse to put my legs over my head after intercourse. That made for an interesting picture once.
We all give up so much and are willing to try anything that has worked from a woman in a group or something that googled showed or something we read about. Well ladies I am done. I am not being Debbie Downer, but I am freaking done with all this crazy ass stuff. It has robbed so much of my time within the past four years and I am done. For the remainder of our treatment, I will just go through treatment PERIOD. I am not jumping through circus hoops anymore like a trained dog.
Now this morning I am going to sit here drink my strong coffee, followed by a few glasses of wine after work and then I may have sex and ask my husband to pull out just to give mother nature a good laugh at the end of the day.
