I went to my weekly acupuncture session today. I've been going weekly since November. I actually enjoy going and it is quite relaxing. The main purpose however is to improve the uterus. Based on my recent biopsy I'm not so sure, however I did get 3 normal embryos on my last IVF so maybe it is working. I've also been taking Chinese herbs daily to help with my overall health. I have to admit I'm fairly healthy. I exercise regularly, I try to eat right, I avoid caffeine during my IVF cycles and I haven't had a soda in over 12 years. Prior to trying to have a baby I was a runner. I even ran a marathon in 2006. Yet another thing I've given up in my pursuit to have a baby. Oh well, there is no point in looking back.
I'll leave you with a little picture from today's acupuncture session. I had 5 needles in my belly and 4 down each leg from my knee to my ankle. This photo only shows 4 (that is a ring in my belly button not a needle).
