CD 11, update

It's on for Monday. Tonight I trigger, and then bright and early Monday morning, the specimen needs to be at the office by 8:00 AM and I am scheduled for 10:00 AM. I've emailed my students, so I am off that day. Yup, I am sure that it probably won't make a difference, but I plan to be in a resting pose most of the day on Monday, doing some acupressure and massage and positive thinking.

And drinking things with cinnamon in it. Yup. My TCM doc said that I need to warm myself up, and hot tea with cinnamon bark is good for the ute. Didn't someone recently comment on the cold uterus thing?

Cinnamon huh? Keeping everything crossed for you, warm ute or not :)

I can just tell you that my acupuncturist has FORBIDDEN me to drink anything cold during my 8 day wait. She said the coldness stops the blood flow to the uterus.

@AS: Hmmm...two TCm docs are saying this; I'm taking the advice!

Good idea taking the day off. I always did the same. I wouldn't move. Take it easy and good luck!! I will have my fingers crossed for you too and I hope the TWW flies by!! My accupuncturist also stressed to make sure to always, always keep your feet warm. Don't step on cold tile, etc. :)

GOOD LUCK!!! I hope you're enjoying taking it easy today. I'm sending you positive, mellow energy. :)

I've read about the warm ute thing, and I think I'm going to go buy some cinnamon bark myself!! I think I've heard you should keep up the "warming" stuff through implantation, but don't take my word for it.
