I have never been the type of person to try anything “new age” or any sort of alternative forms of medicine. But being on this TTC journey has pretty much left me with my hands thrown up in the air saying to myself and everyone else….I give up! No, I don’t mean give up TTC..I mean give up the idea that I know about what I am doing, and at this point I am just winging it. At this point I am pretty much willing to give anything a try. That’s why this month I am giving the finger to more “regular ways” of TTC…and am moving on to more “alternative” methods. As you know this month I have been trying Acupuncture  but what you don’t know is that I have also been using meditation in my quest for relaxation. And my meditation of choice right now is the Circle + Bloom Fertility Program.

I learned about Circle + Bloom while reading one of my favorite blogs… Baby Making Machine . After learning about the program I was very intrigued and when they offered for me to try their audio program I jumped at the chance. Like I said, I am not one to just relax and let my mind go..I mean I don’t even relax in the bath tub…but I figured it was certainly worth a try. The theory behind the program is to get your mind and body in sync. I think they say it best on their site.. 

Taking 15 minutes for yourself each day, in the privacy of your own home, you can reduce the negative effects of stress and direct your body with your mind to increase your chances of getting pregnant. Our program demystifies the idea of implementing both stress reduction and mind + body techniques to improve fertility. We’ve done the research for you and created a powerful regimen using relaxation techniques and daily guided visualizations that track the changes happening in your body on a monthly basis. 

The program consists of 28, 15 minute audio tracks. One for each day of your cycle. (if it’s longer or shorter there are ways to work it out so don’t worry) In these 15 minutes you are left to relax and think about nothing but peaceful thoughts. I have to tell you, that it is absolutely wonderful! I even have been using the program WHILE I get my acupuncture! 

Do I believe that this will get me pregnant?? I don’t know….but what I do believe is that this program allows me 15 minutes to myself every day. 15 minutes of pure relaxation…15 minutes for my mind to just shut down (which doesn’t happen often).. and whatever it does..it definitely puts my mind and body at ease. Other than during acupuncture I found I like to do it before bed time. It was a great program to fall asleep to.
