needles, where?

still awaiting our cycle. but, this is good news. i want the Metformin to get back in the game and do what it's supposed to do. note: i need to research what exactly that is. sad: i've been on it for like a bazillion years, one would think i would know this. so, i'm still pushing for the end of next week. i think it's doing something since i haven't started yet. with PCOS craziness i have going on, cycles tend to come on a bi-weekly basis.

so i've been reading alot on acupuncture lately. it all seems crazy and painful to me, especially since i do not - i repeat, do not like needles. but im so curious. there are so many articles talking up the history and benefits, in addition to my sweet friend who is also TTC;  that they have kind of talked me into an appointment. you can read about it here.

like most, anything i can do that would help get a big. fat. positive.

but needles? there? where? what?

any personal stories? please share.


  1. I have had two acupuncture appointments since I started my pre-cycle for IVF #2. I don't think it's bad at all. I am not afraid of needles, but I would say don't watch the acupuncture put the needles in. You'll feel a slight pinch and then you don't feel the needles anymore. I wrote two posts on my experiences. If you are interested in more details you can read about my first experence here: http://fortheloveofshoesandababy2.blogspot.com/2010/03/moving-forwardand-feeling-hopeful.html good luck! :)

  2. thanks SO much! i am on my way to read now! is it only beneficial to IVFs or IUIs? I've read both...thoughts?
