Heather, I'm so sorry for your loss :(
Everyone, now that we're approaching wintertime, has anyone given any thought to light therapy to increase fertility? I've been reading a lot about it lately, and I realized that of the 4 pregnancies I've had (two of which ended in miscarriage), 3 of them were conceived during the summer, and the fourth that wasn't in the summer was a miscarriage for no apparent "reason" unlike the case of the IUD removal which is most likely the only reason I miscarried most recently. So it seems to me that I, like many women, may be much more fertile in the summertime and could possibly benefit from light therapy. Those light therapy lights are brutal expensive though! Does it seem worth the cost?? I'm considering just getting a growing light for plants and using that because they're much cheaper... Has anyone tried light therapy or know of anyone who's had luck with it?
An interesting idea...
A couple months ago I read that, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the most fertile seasons for women are fall and winter...and, of course, the most fertile seasons for men are spring and summer. I don't know how much stock I put into that, but I did conceive DS in early November.
But, y'know, now that I think about it...when I was doing acupuncture to TTC, my acupuncturist often had this lamp-thing aimed at my tummy that made me feel all warm and toasty, but I think it also was some kind of light therapy. Whether she used it on me or not depended on where I was in my cycle.
