It has taken me awhile to write this because part of me was worried that this was a dream! I AM PREGNANT!!!! After trying for almost a year, and being told because of my “advanced maternal age” (I’m only 35!) and high FSH that getting pregnant without an IUI or IVF would not be possible, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart because we are pregnant without an IUI or IVF! I remember the first time that I spoke with you on the phone; I instantly had a hope that I had lost many month before. That was the month after our failed IUI with injectibles cycle when I was told that we had to take a break because not only was I not pregnant but the medication left me with large cysts. We were devastated and I decided that I really wanted to give acupuncture and TCM herbs a try. At the same time we were preparing for IVF in a few months because the doctor told us that he thought that was our best shot after two failed IUI cycles. To our surprise, we did not need the specialist help…you were our miracle! I just entered my second trimester (13 weeks and 3 days today), and other than feeling tired and some night-time nausea I feel great….and blessed! Your ability to know what I needed and support me has been wonderful. I can never thank you enough. We are already talking about conceiving number two next year, and I will absolutely be working with you to achieve that pregnancy as well! Thank you Candace, thank you so much for helping me through such a struggle and giving me (us) hope. H.F.
