Had my uterine massage today. It was so relaxing. She put castor oil on my lower abdomen and put a hot water bladder over it. She let that settle in while massaging my face, shoulders, scalp (omg love this part), and feet. She then removed the hot water bladder and massaged the oil into my belly. After that she massaged my back and neck. It was amazing! Can't wait for the next appointment!
She had me choose a card from a mother's desk. I got the "mirror" and this is what the book had to say about it. What stood out to me was: "Self-love tells you to stop looking for the answers outside. The key is to rest in knowing that nothing separates you from love. Love is always loving you [yourself]. The beloved that you seek is you all along - you have been knocking from the inside!"

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
