Life updates!


So it’s been quite a while .... There have been so many amazing things happening in our family ! Its been so busy, I have forgotten to come over here and share! The biggest change being, that we just relocated from Southern California (after moving from NY 4 years prior) to Houston Texas! It’s been about six months since the move. We finally feel like we are at a place where we can breathe ! We found a great home church , all of the kids are doing good in school ( I have two home schooled, and two in public) and we found a groove! Also, I no longer have to use the GPS to get around anymore ! 😂 A lot of dynamics have also changed in our household. Now that we are past the newborn phase with TWINS, we have Two teenagers, (16 and 16) two in between,(12 and 9) and then two toddlers...As the Twins are now TWO years old!! (how can time go so fast!???) it’s been interesting to see how the schedules have changed . I still can’t believe It some days! But honestly, I am loving every second of this whole mom gig! I love being a home to help shape all of these awesome kids, into amazing adults! I have started serving on the worship team at church as well , so it’s nice to do some things that are fun Got ME too! For a LONG time, I was ONLY doing things for others, and felt a little funk slip in. Self care is HUGE, and for me, I feel FILLED up when i'm serving in my gifts. Additionally I have started an awesome home business with the most amazing coffee, and the self development has been amazing, along with making some life long friends along the way! And of course, the extra cash doesn't hurt with this many kiddos! LOL I'm hoping to take some more time to explore the beauty that is Houston here soon, now that its cooling down! But so far, we LOVE Texas!!!! Ill try to hop on here and post a few pics too! We need a NEW Family pic STAT!

My game plan...

So I decided to give myself some goals and things to focus on while I recover from this last loss/ectopic. I will have to wait at least 3 months before we can try again, and let the effects of the methotrexate leave my body, and build up my folic acid levels again. 

My plan:

I am going to go back to my sugar/gluten free/semi paleo diet. I am going to cut out all caffeine (slowly over the next month) And, also starting working out 5 times a week or more. I plan to use a workout series such as Insanity or P90x. My goal is to lose 30- 50 lbs in the next 6 months. I also plan to start taking my old holistic remedies, like maca, red raspberry leaf and red clover, as  a fertility tonic. I plan to add in doing my castor oil packs, 5x a week consecutively, with two days rest. I also decided to really give taking serrapeptase a try. For those who do not know what serrapeptase is, I will give you a little run down on this nifty little enzyme.

Discovered in the early 1970’s, this proteolytic enzyme…

Antihistamine protocol.

I stumbled across some info the other day on a few different sites and forums, that talked about some reproductive immunologists giving some ladies with repeat un explained losses this cocktail of meds to help dampen down the immune system a bit around implantation. I read a couple personal accounts of ladies who took it with success and a few ramblings from the DR's who were discussing the theory behind it a bit...
 Basically, you take a claritin pill in the morning, a pepcid at noon and a bennadryl or prednisone in the evening. ( I will take the bennadryl instead of prednisone, as I don't tolerate it well, and bennadryl is OTC) and You start taking this cocktail around 3to4 days past ovulation (or in the case of the IVF ladies, 2 days before transfer) and it is supposed to possibly help those with underlying immune issues and recurrent unexplained losses. Then I started thinking about it, and in each of my full term pregnancies, I had been taking allergy pills of some kind p…

Results

HCG- Only a measly 8
P4- 48

I have a feeling that my HCG may be on the decline already, since my FRER was slightly lighter today...=/

I guess we will see what wed's beta brings...I know it probably will be neg by then, but I am praying for some kinda miracle!!

Here is my FRER progression/regression....=(
