To Many Options

So, once I actually find a second job I will have to decide where the money is going.  I mean it is going into my uterus fund, but I don't know where that money will be directed.  First I thought I would try just a regular OB/GYN to get the initial testing done.

But traditional doctors are pretty unhelpful in my opinion.  Yes, my ultimate goal is a baby, but to get there I would rather FIX what is wrong with me than just work around it.  So I am thinking about seeing a naturopathic doctor.  The great thing about them is that they are willing to work with natural means AND medical means.  So you kind of get the best of both worlds.

The other thing I was thinking of was a chiropractor.  I have read good things about infertile women getting pregnant after going to a chiropractor for a few months.  Apparently it aligns your whole body, not just your back.

Ugh.  I am going to be working hard for my money (not actually doing hard jobs, just working a lot of hours) and I don't want to through it away on stuff that isn't going to work.  But I also don't want to save up for 2 years to do IVF and have that not work (it only works like 25% of the time!).  Either way I risk throwing money away. 

Or I could just become a crack whore or teenage slut.  They seem to get pregnant alarmingly easy.

  1. I think the idea of you going to an OBGYN is good. I really like naturopaths but it would be nice to work with someone who specializes in "woman problems".

  2. I have found quite a few naturopaths (in Portland of course because Salem sucks) that DO specialize in woman problems! My real problem with OB/GYNs is that the few I have talked to, and the few my sister have talked to just love to give you pills with the possibility of terrible side effects. The one they wanted my sister on has a fairly common side effect of SHUTTING YOUR KIDNEYS down!!

  3. Oh, please tell me more about the chiropratic thing! I have not heard (or looked into which is probably why I don't know anything about it) about it.
    Is your sister also having trouble conceiving?
    I went to an OBGYN. We were able to rule out a few things which hasn't helped any because now she is recommending us go to a fertility specialist in Portland. I don't know if I want to do that yet. Seems like such a big step.

    1. http://www.echiropractor.net/images/EnhanceFertilityChiropracticCare.pdf - This is the most concise information I have found. 75% is a pretty dang good rate! You should look up NaProTechnology. It is pretty cool, but you have to drive 6 hours to find a doctor that does it.

      My sisters both have PCOS, although one of them is to young to have a baby anyway (unless she wants to go on 16 and Pregnant, then she better hurry up, her birthday is next month), so conceiving is difficult.

      I initially skipped the OB/GYN and just went to the fertility specialist, but I didn't like him and I am pretty poor so I stopped going. I am looking to start going somewhere after Christmas, I just don't know where.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
