Branching Out

I am thinking about jumping back into the baby making business. Or at least the attempting to make a baby business. Meg is growing up so quickly, and I think it would be a really wonderful thing for her to have a co-pilot through life. I may not always like my sisters, but I know we have shared history. They have my back. I want Meg to have that.*

However, while I am thinking about trying for another baby, I am not thinking about going back to fertility treatments. This time, I am going to try something I never thought I could do, and still am not sure if I can -- get out of the way and let my body do it's thing. To that end I going to try and do this all through lifestyle changes, and maybe a little acupuncture. It's a plan laid out in the book "Making Babies: A Proven Three Month Program For Maximum Fertility."

This is not going to be easy. Actually trying to make changes instead of just hoping western medicine has the magic bullet never is. I am going need people keeping me honest in order to stay on track. To that end, I have entered into a joint blog venture with Erin and Christina. They are using the program too, and together we will hash it out, overcome the difficulties, and hopefully all end up pregnant.

If not, at least it will be entertaining reading. I hope you will join us at TiredandStuck.blogspot.com.




*I know many of you are thinking "why not adopt again." I wish I could, but that is not financially possible at this time. Not ruling it out in the future though.

Libby, I wish you much good karma and good health. I will follow the other blog with crossed fingers, toes and eyes (hopefully it's not overkill!)

I am so excited to hear this and am behind you all the way. I would have loved to have had a second child but endometriosis stopped me. I will be praying for you in my pagan-hippy-agnostic kind of way. :D

I'm not sure how adoption works in the US but here in the UK it doesn't cost anything, well apart from years of waiting, and handing your life over to social workers etc.

Good luck with the baby making. I hope it works out for all of you. As much as my 2 adopted girls fight and argue I know they are both there for one another. :)

There is nothing quite like having a sibling. Meg will be a great big sister.

I wish you all the luck there is.

All the best to you.

Fingers crossed. Everything crossed, really. But not legs. Because that seems counter productive, now doesn't it?

I have been following their program for 2 months. It is totally doable! Use their online quiz to help ID your type: http://www.makingbabiesprogram.com/questionnaire/index.php

I'm sending you all the positive pregnancy mojo thoughts your way!! I agree about the sibling thing. I throw things at my brothers daily, but I can't imagine not having them.
