I just turned 40! My Fertility Journey.

I have just turned 40!  I don’t feel it.  It seems a little surreal.  What I have realised for myself, which I would like to share with you, is that ’40’ is just a label!   How I feel, and how my body has aged, is really what counts!  How we treat our bodies right now is what makes all the difference.   I do however have high FSH and I will be curious to see what the difference will now be,and  how I will be treated now that I have reach this next ‘barrier’.    I am doing a lot of things differently than when I first started the fertility journey.   Right now I am ona  course of Ayurvedic herbs, prescribed by an Ayurvedic Physician and Pulse Reader from India, called Dr Pankaj Naram.  He has treated the Dalai Lama!  Interestingly he is of the opinion that often it is the men that need the attention from an infertility standpoint, and so my husband is also on a whole load of herbs too.  I am open to new and natural wonders, and Dr Nuram truly has a gift, that has helped a number of infertile couples.   He was intuitively able to tell that I was a Life Coach just by touching my wrist, knowing that helping people is my priority! Reading a person’s pulse literally takes a minute or two, so he is therefore able to see 100’s of people everyday, and certainly doesn’t have time to do research on his patients (for you skeptics out there!)  He is the real McCoy!

So now I am doing the herbs, the juicing (going to get better at doing that every day), taking cell food in my water, checking my ph balance every morning, and drinking my Body Balance everyday (amazing stuff! – haven’t been sick for a year and a half!).   Once I get back from Spain at the end of the month, I will start my gentle exercise regime of walking 4 times a week, and swimming a couple of times a week.   Keep me accountable folks!   I lost 30lbs since last July, and so it should give me a better chance at success with the IVF I will probably undertake in October or November.    We will also see a specialist in NY, who has a slightly different approach, so I will be curious to hear what he has to say.  Been highly recommended so I will keep you informed.    Our previous endocrinologist feels he has done all he can for us, so now we are looking at doing things slightly differently.  Its ok to try someone else, they might have a different approach or perspective to your previous doctor, and now its our turn to go down that road.   We are open!

I am embracing 40!    and just keeping on track!

warming up those embies!

Louise’s Journey

I have  started juicing! Its great – I love it.  It makes me feel alive!   I am working on ‘completions’ or ‘deletions’ at the moment –  getting little projects done, or finishing off things that have been waiting half finished!  Its a very freeing feeling, and creates more space and energy to allow new things to come into my life!   I started playing some tennis with Clive (hubbie) which I love!  I am not very good at it, but just doing something fun, takes the ‘exercise’ out of it!  and it gets the blood flowing! (very important)   I will also start my ayurvedic herbs this week….I am open on that one, not sure what to expect!    Clive is being very supportive of the process, and is helping by creating a menu of our meals for the week, so we eat well and healthily.  I am very lucky to have a man who loves to cook!      My coaching question this week is:  What can you do to get support around something you are doing that is important to you?    Feel free to comment, it will be great feedback for me, as well as helping others to grow as they read this blog!

Louise x   Have a great week!
