Of all the crazy shit I have tried on my infertility journey -- stupid diets, working out, not drinking (OK, that one is a lie), massage, meditation, yoga, hot yoga, pilates, praying, juicing, all organic, and Kegels --- the one infertile standby I haven't dabbled is in acupuncture.
The truth is I am terrified of needles. I'm OK with the actual piercing part, but when its sitting there, I feel like shit is about to go wrong and I start to panic. It's hard enough for me to sit still for a massage. I can't even make it through a yoga class anymore because I'm so stressed out about everything. Sitting still with needles is my personal hell, I think.
I'm at the point where I feel like I would do anything to get pregnant. I've already put my whole life on hold, spent all my cash, and yet this one freaks me out. I'm just not sure why acupuncture is so trusted to all these ladies out there. I wouldn't even know about it for IVF if it weren't on everyone's blog. But still. Makes me shudder to think about it.
