It's been a few weeks since my 3rd IVF negative and I'm feeling a little better about it. We are trying Letrozole this month because I couldn't do another IVF until after Christmas. It's way less invasive! Just 5 days of pills and then normal baby making activities with an IUI thrown in for good measure! I go tomorrow for an ultrasound to see when my IUI will be. This method is definitely more relaxed and stress free, which is nice because all this stuff has been taking a toll! I have been actively TTC since July '10 and for the last year, have been doing full on fertility treatments one after the other! It's getting a bit tiring. If this IUI doesn't work, I've decided to do one more IVF and then I'm done for awhile. It's time to get back to living my life.
I've been working out again, which I'm sure helps put me in a better mood. I even managed to get up and go to the gym this morning before work! Now, if only I could do that everyday! I started taking digestive enzymes and trace minerals to help with my ongoing stomach issues and even started limiting my gluten/wheat intake. I just started the enzymes and minerals yesterday and was not feeling a difference and then today, I went most of the day without stomach pains! Seriously, this is amazing! I have had stomach pains for as long as I can remember. I am so hopeful that I finally found something to help! And apparently the trace minerals are supposed to give you more energy so maybe that's why I was able to get up and go to the gym this morning? I'll take it!
Despite being more and more jaded, I am still holding out for a Christmas miracle though! Who knows, it could happen.
