After years of having been told by three doctors and my acupuncturist that I would never conceive… we have little Sarah to prove them all wrong!
Amanda – I am sorry it took so long to get this to you. I hope you are doing well my friend. I hope to some day meet you in person and introduce you to my little angel (who is now 15 months old!).
To all my fellow families struggling to have a family, The first thing I would offer is ‘do NOT give up’. If you have a deep desire in your heart like I did in mine, I had to keep going. No matter what I had to keep going until I felt so good and so fertile that I knew I had done my absolute best. I never got to perfection, but I felt pretty darn close….and then it happened.
It took almost 2 years, but looking at Sarah, how could I ever have considered not going forward. I can’t say enough about Amanda, about natural herbs, and the difference they’ve made in my life.
I first learned how to deal with the problems I had with fertility. I started an herbal plan that would work with my body. I ignored the various labels I have been given: No eggs left, Too old, Premature Ovarian Failure, egg quality not good. I refused to try IVF or fertility drugs. I started focusing on symptoms I wanted to see change: more Fertile CM, less pain with my cycle, better colored cycle, no clots.
I would followup with how I was doing. Well we now have a beautiful little one that my husband and I are totally crazy about! I still check in on occasion and love to send in pictures of our little addition to the family. I have no doubt that Radiant Wonder and everything they did for me was the difference. They are generous, giving and supportive people, we will always be thankful to Radiant Wonder!
This was a long journey…I looked back at some of my diary entries.
4 months on the program: Discouraged and wondering when or if I should stop
5 months on the program: Balanced cycle and making more eggs
6 months later: FSH down – Follicle count up!
1 year and 3 month mark: The fateful month…and a hesitation to test
6 months later: I can’t believe our baby will be here in just a few weeks!
