I have my fingers crossed for you, Gumblossom! You have always had fertility super powers -- I believe your next BFP is just around the corner. I hope you can muddle through solo (with that creative little spirit underfoot!) until your DH comes home.
WaturMama, sorry to hear you're having to deal with these issues with your progesterone supps. Is it possible to ask your doc for a different brand? The progesterone supps I've been prescribed in the past are a soft white substance, no coating at all. Have you tried the natural cream that you can rub into your skin?
Shell, how great that you found a TCM practitioner! How do you like her/him? The book you're reading is by a celebrity TCM doctor who lives in my town. Her protocol is pretty intense, no? I think I would have to quit my job and maybe farm out my family to have the time and energy to follow it. Have you read Randine Lewis' books? The Infertility Cure is great, as are her other books. Similar Eastern thinking to Angela Wu, but a gentler protocol and a very different voice. I love her blogs, they're full of inspiring writings.
Thanks to everyone who chimed in about dental stuff... I decided to go ahead and do it. My old crown was broken (and the records from when it was created no longer available), so I had to do something. I investigated and felt that the peroxide whitening and the (pretty minimally-invasive) dental work would be okay. Interesting cycle for me... both my hypnotherapist and my TCM doc were utterly convinced I was pg (and they had predicted my last pregnancy in the same way). My TCM person was so convinced, in fact, that after my last appointment, she only gave me pregnancy herbs, no AF herbs! But apparently that little spirit wasn't ready to stay. I never tested, just waited for AF to show (which she did), so I'll never know for sure. But, DD and I did have the stomach flu shortly after implantation time, which I imagine is not so great for a little bean trying to get settled. In other news, DD and I have decided to skip the international trip I mentioned for a variety of reasons, but DH is going. Now, I have my fingers crossed it won't be during O time!
