TTC after miscarriage – Kristi’s full story
Although we are not pregnant yet, I have noticed a huge difference in the way I deal with stress, and how my body feels.
My husband and I have been trying since 2005 to get pregnant. We over the course of the years we have gone through every test imaginable, but have been told that there really isn’t any reason that we can’t get pregnant. We were labeled with the stigma “unexplained infertility”. After 8 cycles of IUI’s and seems like a million negative pregnancy tests, we decided to take a break, and look into embryo adoption. This was last August. On September 11, 2009 we went for our appointment with the adoption counselor, and were put on the “waiting list” for our embryo. They told us to expect the call around January of 2010. However, on September 20, 2009 I took a pregnancy test (because I was a few days late) and to my SURPRISE we were pregnant and it was on our own! It was an amazing feeling, and five home pregnancy tests (we didn’t believe it) and a blood test, we were given the FOR SURE! My pregnancy was wonderful. I didn’t have any morning sickness or anything and felt great. Then on Tuesday December 22, 2009 we went for our 18 week ultrasound to find out the sex of the baby and to our horror found that there was not heartbeat we had however heard the heartbeat 2 days before. I went in to the hospital on December 23, 2009 and our daughter was born on Christmas Eve at 11:15 pm there was a tear in the cord. We had her funeral on New Year’s Eve. It was a very horrible time in our lives.
After a few months of healing and taking time to grieve, we decided we were going to start trying again. I researched fertility relaxation, and came across your website. I downloaded the free trial and tried it for a month and fell in love with it. I then decided to download the Fertility program and begin a daily ritual of listening to it before bed. When I use to go to bed, I had to have the tv on, lights on and my husband hated it. Now that I listen to your program every night before bed, I have found that I am more relaxed and sleep more soundly. I actually rarely make it through the daily meditation session without falling asleep. I now sleep without any tv, lights, etc. I only sleep to your program.
Although we are not pregnant yet, I have noticed a huge difference in the way I deal with stress, and how my body feels. I do not feel as uptight or nervous. I actually even am able to “deal” with my emotions better if we find out that we are not pregnant. We just recently started taking fertility meds, and have decided to continue trying using timed intercourse as well as your program. I even have had my husband listen to some of the “free trial” version so he can see what I am listening to.
