Creighton Model Introductory Session

So, yesterday we attended the introductory session for Creighton Model. I am so glad that Michael was there with me and that he will be a big part of this process so he will understand more of our fertility issues.

The session went well, was very basic but I discovered that I have like 3 of 6 signs of problems. I am fairly certain the majority of my issues are with endometriosis, but I have always thought that after I had my LEEP procedure done a couple years ago that I don't have as much cervical mucous as I should.

At the end of the class you are asked if you want to sign-up to continue instruction. I asked if we had to sign up in order to be referred to a medical doctor after 2 cycles, and they said yes. So we signed up to continue instruction for the next year. I know that this will be a great asset in our relationship for the remainder of our life. I feel confident that once I have 2 cycles charted the doctor will be able to help me correct my issues more than the other doctors I've had. I love my current OBGYN b/c he is so nice and sweet and I feel that he really does care, but he doesn't explain himself all too well and is very quick when he comes in to talk to you b/c they are always so busy.

I would highly recommend signing up for Creighton Model instruction to any couple out there. This is a tool which you can use to avoid or achieve pregnancy.

Well, that is all for now, the next session with my teacher will be in 2 weeks so I'll keep you updated.

A New Hope...

I have a new hope in our TTC journey. A friend of Michael's told us about NaPro Technology and the Creighton Model. I searched around for hours last week to try and figure out more about this. Their goal is to treat the problem with your fertility and then you conceive naturally, rather than trying to force your body into something.

We will attend a training class January 23rd for Creighton Model to learn the charting process. Then I was told that after 2 cycles we will be referred to a medical specialist depending on our issues.

I can't wait until next Saturday to learn more, I again have renewed hope that we may be able to have a baby of our own.
