I just happened to have an acupuncture appointment scheduled and what a great way to start off this cycle - relaxed and rejuvenated. I had made my own meditation/relaxation tape to listen to while I lay there, but unfortunately my acupuncturist's technology wasn't quite up to date. Instead I played it while driving home (listening rather than meditating, of course) and it struck a chord.
At one point it said: "Wanting something means you put your energy into hoping something pans out in the future. On the other hand, saying thank you for it - in advance of your actually seeing it manifest - injects a powerful energy into that seed of potential." My heart skipped at hearing those words and instantly I felt it swell as I literally said "Thank You!" out loud to myself and the universe in the car.

I continue to do my nightly meditations and focus on visualizing myself with this pregnancy. I continue with my weekly acupuncture appointments and daily fertility yoga DVD. I continue because though I hope it helps achieve a pregnancy of course, it's also just good for me and this body that I need to nurture and show my appreciation. I know some give advice not to think of it at all, but I am not that person, so instead I will work with how my mind works and turn it into something of gratitude and joy. I enter this cycle with more happiness and less worry than any cycle before because no matter what has happened or what will happen this time around, I know I will be a mother. I am content in that knowledge.
