Jenny - thanks, my wife is headed to her first acupuncture appt tonight, with the fertility specialist.... I actually have always wanted to get acupuncture too! (more so for digestive issues) maybe I'll go as well one day.
good luck to everyone!
Sandiego, that sounds pretty relaxing. Enjoy your session!!
So just got off with the RE's nurse a bit ago. Well we've confirmed this upcoming cycle. AF should be here next week!! I'll start Femara for the first time (switching from the clomid, thanx for the tip knitting ) on CD 3-7, which is a little different. I was taking the clomid on CD 5-9. Then in for the u/s to check on mye follies!! It seems I've just been waiting and waiting, but when Rhonda (RE's nurse) said, "well your cycle should be here soon, actually next week", it almost suprised meeh! I had to look at mye calendar and verify...nd sure enough she was right..guess all mye wanting the time to pass quicker made it breeze by bc AF's touching down next week for sure!
LUCK TO ALL! especially those braving the TWW!
So I just couldn't wait until tomorrow morning, and I just POAS. I am in extreme shock, but there was an indisputable second line (ie. a BFP). I am going to wait until this weekend, when AF is expected, to fully freak out. Needless to say, DP and I are thrilled and kind of awestruck. I *really* did not think this would work at home with washed samples. Anyway, you all have made this isolating process so much more bearable. I will wait to "graduate" until at least Sunday. In the meantime, baby dust to everyone else and thank you all again for your support.
easttowest, whenever DP has a sore throat I have her take a tbsp. of honey. it soothes the scratchiness and helps with the soreness. As far as the runny nose, i'd try and keep the air moist and if you have a humidifier that should help too. Also, to help with the sleep they have ZZquil by nyquil that isnt like the medicated nyquil..or dream water. Oh and I found this too:
You can also treat runny nose naturally using garlic. Garlic has natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties that are very effective against such condition. You can chew on a small garlic clove upon waking up in the morning or you may drink garlic soup until your runny nose condition is relieved. Simply boil a few cloves of garlic in water and add onion juice into it for more benefits. Make sure to drink the soup while it is still warm.
