I tried to conceive for over 3 years. The last few months were the worst. My reasons for not conceiving all made sense to me, and we kept moving up the infertility ladder. I never lost hope because reasons were always involved. But 3 years in, I had a canceled IVF cycle due to thin uterine lining (a problem I had never heard of because it had never been an issue for me before). I started to lose my mind. It now seemed like my body was searching for reasons to stay infertile.
I listened to a friend who recommended acupuncture to help increase my uterine lining. The acupuncturist recommended Circle + Bloom. The internet recommended certain foods and drinks to help me as well. I spend most of the next two months focused on how every decision I made might affect my uterine lining (quite different from my laid-back approach from the previous 3 years). Thank goodness for Circle + Bloom for helping me stay calm during that period.
I had never meditated before. I really liked guided meditation for this reason and felt grateful there was guided meditation SPECIFICALLY for someone taking fertility drugs and going through an FET. It helped me feel like I was not alone.
On the day of my transfer, I listened to Circle + Bloom almost all day, even during both my acupuncture sessions. I’m now 5.5 months pregnant. I will absolutely be recommending this to my friends and have already been using the Pregnancy and Delivery guided meditations.
Thank you for giving me something to cling to, teaching me about my own mind-body connection, and helping me know that I wasn’t the only one going through this.
Do you have a Circle+Bloom success story to share?
