Okay, I'm kinda freaked out and know that I have less to be freaked out about but W O W, I am. So perhaps I need a little, "Yes, this is cause for freaking out," and a bit of, "But you're ahead of the game, appreciate it."
I have been trying to get preggo since August (went off the bcpatch then). Started temping, etc. in Jan, still wasn't ovulating in March. Decided my body needed some extra help/nourishing so I saw a NP. My ss7 is on the autistic spectrum, was very well vax'ed, is constantly on antibiotics, eats crappy food. I have a mouthful (I mean 12 good sized holes) of silver fillings, new and old.
My NP said we should avoid getting pregnant while I do a mini-detox: castor oil packs on the abdomen, extra Omega-3s, acidophilus, herbs for my hyperthyroid, other herbs to balance my ovaries, the Perfect Food to increase blood volume and consult with a holistic dentist (she recommended Groton Dental Wellness) to discuss getting the silver/mercury fillings removed, safely. But if I'm correct, instead of waiting for a month after finishing the filling removal, they recommend 12-18 months before getting pregnant.
That's a long time. Intellectually, all the reasons out there make sense, but I was hoping to have our first kids sooner than later. Augh. I am being a selfish, self-centered brat...
I have my first dental appt in Groton in early May. I guess I start with that... I am not currently preggo, am not bfing but I did poas and discovered I started ovulating this month.
Anyone have any thoughts... I know I'm aiming for the prevention end of things... just exhausted from thinking of all of it....
