I was lucky enough to attend a session of hypnotherapy with Zita West’s practitioner, Maureen at the Clinic in London.
It’s a first for me, having never done anything like his before, so I really didn’t know what to expect.
I arrived at the lovely clinic and was only kept waiting for a few minutes before being whisked to the very top of the building by Maureen, where we talked about my situation. I loved the way she spoke. Really such a positive person and we also talked about her family too.
We talked about some of the negative thoughts I have about trying naturally for baby number 2, my negative feelings about my own body, and my fear of letting my place of work down by having another baby. She really did help me “re-frame” some of my negativity and put a more positive spin on it.
Then the hypnotherapy session started. I lay back on the reclining chair and she began to speak. It was very much like you see on the TV, designed to make you relax but not at any point did I feel I was not in control of my body, my thoughts or my actions.
She set a wonderful scene. I was to imagine myself on a beach surrounded by lovely greenery and a bright sunny day. The session was focused on relaxing and using counting and imagery to do so. When I think back to the day I get a really strong imagine in my mind and its fantastic! It truly does help me feel less anxious and more relaxed.
The actual hypnotherapy last for approximately 20 minutes.
I enjoyed it very much, however, I can see that you would need a number of sessions to really benefit. I really felt very positive when leaving the clinic.The session also gave me some “self hypnosis” tools. When I think about it, it helps me relax and feel less stressed about the whole baby situation.
All in all, its was a fantastic experience, but I think I need to do it a few more times.

For the first time in what feels like weeks, I am beginning to feel more like myself again. I’ve still got horrendous pain in my jaw which sometimes wakes me up in the middle of the night.When that happens I get up, stuff some pain killers in my mouth, read the Daily Mail on line and fall back to sleep. But I’ve managed to keep up with the temping and charting for fertility and to see when I’m ovulating.
My tonsilitis is clearing I think as I feel less like the walking dead. So hopefully, next week can be a positive week for me.
Although I’ve been ill, I’ve been taking my temperature daily in order to do charting. I wanted to see if I was ovulated when I think I am. This would be the first time I have ever done it because, quite frankly I’m terrible at any sort of figure/maths type work and even though I have an electronic thermometer I’m dubious as to whether its accurate or whether I’m even taking the reading correctly. For me there are just so many variables and ways I can be inaccurate.
I got the Fertility Friend BBT Tracker from the website, entered my temps and it turned out “ovulation not detected”. I know I ovulate, from all the tests I’ve had done over all the infertile years, so I’ve got to be doing something wrong! I’ve attached the chart below. Think I’ll keep going and see what next month brings. I knew I would probably get it all wrong. I’ve fairly sure my electronic thermometer from ASDA is up the creak! £16 well spent then! Balls!
Or maybe I’m not ovulating?? Argh, more fertility issues to stress over.
I am going to work for 2 days next week, oh joy! I am also delivering free samples of my tea to show some interested people that its lovely and that they should buy some to compliment their trying for baby efforts. The stuff is great. Go to my website http://www.assistfertility.co.uk. I’m hoping these people will write some reviews for me to.

I managed to get to the Iyengar yoga class again. It really is unlike any Yoga I’ve ever been too and, I think I know why:
Yes, yes, I know its Wikipedia, but the info is fairly comprehensive.
We used belts and blocks in this class, and the teacher accused me of not listening to her! How very rude! I quite enjoyed it, the teacher read some interesting words from Mr Iyengar himself. I quite liked the spiritual side of it. Something about, Yoga helps us to know ourselves and by knowing ourselves we become strong and happier.
When I got my infertile diagnosis, what happened after that really taught me to “know” myself. Now I know that strength of will and refusing to be beaten are integral to my personality. I’m certainly a much stronger person.
And that is good.
Someone once said to me,
“everything will be alright in the end, and if its not alright, its not the end”
I totally live by that. Love that quote.
The second big thing to happen this week is, I went to work for the day! Eeeek! I hadn’t stepped into that office in over 9 months. Work head most certainly wasn’t on and I kept forgetting to speak! Haha! Trying to communicate with my colleagues was an interesting one. I’m back tomorrow for round 2!
Still trying for baby nos 2 the natural way.I wonder if I’ll ever get that “happy accident”?

DHEA update……………….massive boil appeared on my back!! Dammit!
Still taking it though!
Missed Iyengar yoga this week, such a shame as really wanted to get there but I had to attend the birthday of my friends little boy Jack. He was 1. She is a PCOS sufferer but managed to have the baby without any intervention. How? I dont know how anyone else gets pregnant naturally. I’d love that feeling. I wondered what a missed period would be like, because for me it probably means I’ve actually hit the menopause, rather then I’m up the duff!! haha!
I’ve been recommended to try Royal Jelly, so thats what I’m going to do.
Did anyone see the stuff on December the 11 being the most fertile day for those in the UK and USA?? What do you think? Totally load of old rubbish or not??
