Sorry for the gap in posts. To be honest, life got busy. While I wish Fertility Socks was my job, it's not, it's my "hobby". Life took over for a bit, but I'm taking more control of my schedule and getting Fertility Socks back up to speed.
I developed a huge backlog of requests when I was short socks. I have socks now, but...
I am getting a PO Box and changing the way socks are donated.
I need new printed literature with the new address on them
So, hang on a bit. If you requested socks, I am doing my best to get them to you ASAP, I promise. Us infertile girls are good at waiting, right?
Just wanted to let everyone know that socks are still going out, but slowly - I am really limited by postage. Please know that I am trying hard to get all of the socks out ASAP. (If you get your socks and you're already pregnant, wear them to OB appointments!)
Thanks for all the generous donations - thankfully, we're not short on socks!!
In the "this person has no idea what they're talking about" file....
This article on Chip Chick (which I generally enjoy reading) claims that using a new device called DuoFertility that monitors basal temps will help you "will help you get pregnant without the expense of IVF".
Reasons why I give the article a FAIL:
If the only reason a person isn't getting pregnant is timing intercourse, they don't need IVF
This device costs $789, but essentially gives you the same information as a $5 basal thermometer (granted, more readings, but remember - you're not supposed to focus on individual readings but the general trend of your BBT curve plotted out)
Somewhere, right now, a well intentioned friend is sending this article to someone struggling with conceiving for reasons other than timing intercourse.
