Introduction
From Infertility to
Pregnancy

Page 13

Traveling the Road from Infertility to
Motherhood
My story isn’t all that unusual. The fact that you’re even reading this book tells
me one thing: you’ve suffered like I’ve suffered. You know what it’s like to wish
and hope for a baby, trying desperately to conceive only to discover month after
month that all of your efforts have been in vain. Your womb is empty and you
don’t know why.

Your arms ache to hold a baby and your heart cries out for a

child to call your own.

If you’ve reached the end of your rope, and wonder if “mommy” is a word that will
ever be yelled through the rooms of your home (or only whispered by those who
fear to say it too loudly lest they risk upsetting you further), believe me when I say
that you can – and will – get pregnant! How do I know this? Because I’ve been
where you are and survived, I’ve managed to give birth to two healthy, beautiful
and smart children after beating the infertility odds.

In some ways my story is unique, and in others it is one of thousands. What
makes my story different is its outcome. After years of doing what the medical
community suggested, I think – no, I KNOW – that I’ve found the secrets to
helping other women (just like you and just like me), experience the miracle of
conception and joy of giving birth. But first, let me tell you a little about my own
journey toward motherhood …

Page 14

Our Story
Like many young newlyweds, my husband and I didn’t want children at first. As a
matter of fact, we did everything we could to prevent it.

But, after five years of

marriage, we knew the time had come – we were ready.

With a bit of arrogance (after all, we never thought we couldn’t conceive), we
jumped headlong into the quest to get pregnant.

Only it didn’t happen. Why?

We wondered after several months. Sure, by now I was in my mid-30’s, but I
was healthy and strong and had never had any indication that getting pregnant
would be a problem once I decided that I was ready for a family.

What should have been easy suddenly became very, very difficult. Being the
goal oriented couple we are, my husband and I found it especially difficult to find
ourselves on the losing end of our quest. We had never failed at anything before,
and let me tell you that this was not something we were prepared to fail at! So
we kept trying … and trying … and trying….

Sex was now just that – sex with a purpose.

Done when my temperature

dictated, it had become a means to an end result, lacking the excitement and the
passion it had once held for us.

After more than a year of frustration our relationship began to feel the strain. I
was moody and short-tempered, often on the verge of tears. I couldn’t bear to
watch other women’s pregnant bellies grow while mine remained an empty tomb.
My every thought revolved around what I was doing (or had done) wrong. What
was wrong with me?

Why couldn’t I do what every other woman could

accomplish so easily?

Page 15

16

Tired of blaming each other for our inability to conceive we sat down and had a
heart to heart talk and decided that it was time to get some answers.

After

putting off going to the OBGYN for fear of what we’d learn, we decided to face
our fears and get tested for a variety of infertility issues.

Unfortunately, like so many other couples discover, the answers we desperately
wanted – and needed – weren’t going to be available to us. More frustrated than
ever, we learned that there was no clear-cut reason for our inability to conceive.
Neither of us exhibited any physical, physiological or biochemical reason to
prevent a pregnancy.

The experts didn’t have a clue as to why we weren’t

pregnant and dubbed us with the term “non-specific infertility.”

They suggested

that we de-stress and keep trying. Great! Hadn’t that been what we were doing
all along?

That’s when I decided to take matters into my own hands. If the experts weren’t
going to find out what was thwarting our attempts at having a child, I was going to
figure it out on my own – and fix it! So, I started to research every aspect of
infertility. I read every book and research study I could get my hands on and
began talking with hospitals and researchers worldwide about clinical trials and
new treatment strategies being considered for couples like us. I was clearly
obsessed with my mission and felt as if I’d go nuts if I didn’t find an answer.

I began applying all of my newfound knowledge and before long was taking more
than a dozen vitamin supplements and minerals every day – and having my
husband do the same. I became convinced that pre-conception care for both the
husband and wife were the key to conception. We started exercising, eating
organic, avoiding toxins wherever we could and even had our amalgam fillings
replaced with ceramic to avoid having mercury in our systems. We even began
practicing Biorhythmic Lunar Cycle, which shows a woman her most fertile time
by comparing the phase of the moon at her birth with the current moon phases.

Page 16

17

After four-plus long years of trying anything and everything to get pregnant it
worked! We had finally conceived! I couldn’t believe my eyes as I stared at
those two stripes gleaming from the pregnancy test strip. We’d done it! We were
going to have a baby!

Unfortunately, our happiness was short-lived when our precious baby was
miscarried at nine weeks.

We were devastated. In an instant all of our hopes

and dreams had vanished – again!

In the midst of our despair came one glimmer of hope: we had managed to
conceive. Our efforts at pre-conception care efforts had worked. Now we had a
new hurdle to overcome: carrying a fetus to full term. A mid-wife friend of mine
assured me that we were on the right track.

We could have a baby, if we kept

trying – and learning.

Not long after that conversation, I discovered a very important piece of research.
I believe now that it was the final piece to our puzzle and allowed us to not only
get pregnant, but to carry our baby to full term – twice! After learning this new
“trick” we conceived our daughter within a few short months.

Our second

pregnancy took less than a month to achieve. Ten years after beginning our
quest, we were the proud parents of two beautiful, healthy children!

So what is the secret that we discovered and how did it make the difference to
turn us from a desperate infertile couple into proud parents?

We’re going to explain everything we’ve learned in the following pages so that
you too can find your way toward the new world that awaits – the world of
parenthood!

What This Book Is About and How It Is
Organized
Pregnancy Miracle isn’t your normal pregnancy guide. Sure, it’ll teach you about
the female and male anatomy and the reasons why so many couples are finding
it difficult to conceive these days, as well as offer some traditional help along the
way. But there’s more.

This guide is designed to take you on the journey of a

lifetime; one that goes beyond learning what every doctor out there already
knows, in order to help you find your own path to parenthood.

Every couple’s story is different, yet every couple’s story is the same: they long
for a child they can’t seem to conceive. If you’re one of those couples, this book
will show you how to break free from your own infertility issues by learning all the
steps needed to attain a pregnancy miracle of your own:

About Human Anatomy and the Role it Plays in
Infertility Issues

In Chapter One we’ll go over the basics of the male and female anatomy
including a review of male reproductive organs and the hormonal system; a
woman’s menstrual cycle; your individual genes; and how they can all affect a
couple’s fertility; as well as sex and how it can (and should) work when it comes
to conceiving a child.

Page 18

19

The basics About Infertility
what it is (and isn’t); what causes it; who’s to blame (and why); the signs to watch
out for; how to determine fertility (basal body temperature; cervical mucus; lunar
cycles; synchronization) and more … much more!

The Eastern View of Fertility and the Myths of
Western Medicine
Modern medicine has made great strides in helping infertile couples finally
conceive, but does it always work? No! Why? The answer is much simpler than
using complicated medications and invasive procedures.

Chapter Three will

discuss the Eastern World’s View on fertility and discuss some of the
misconceptions held by traditional medical doctors in regards to fertility and a
couple’s conception options.

This chapter will delve headlong into a discussion

on fertility (does it really exist?) and move right into a comparison of both the
Eastern and Western views on infertility treatments. Also included will be an indepth infertility questionnaire for couple’s to take to determine their best course of
action.

Page 19

The Steps to Getting Pregnant and Giving Birth to
Healthy Children
If getting pregnant and delivering a healthy baby is what you’re after, than
Chapter Four will offer you the five most important steps to achieving that goal
naturally. This includes an in-depth discussion on:

Achieving Balance, Harmony and Congruency for Conceiving Your Baby through
a specialized two-step plan that can help enhance any woman’s fertility.
Making the Diet and Exercise Changes Necessary to conceive, including vitamin
and mineral enhancement; exercising; stress control; sleep optimization and
clearing your home and your body of dangerous toxins.
Cleansing Your Energy for Conception Using Acupuncture and Acupressure
techniques specifically designed to enhance fertility, as well as tips for balancing
your Cycle Phase and Specific Condition with Chinese Herbs and utilizing basic
Qi Gong exercises for strengthening your reproductive system and opening the
Qi energy pathways needed to conceive.
Internal cleansing and liver detoxification.
Nurturing Your Organs and Enhancing Your Qi Through Acupressure and Qi
Gong Exercises.

Within this chapter you will learn the importance of reading your body’s signals
and signs; keeping a fertility chart; predicting ovulation; and surviving the twoweek wait.

Page 20

21

Special Conditions and Other Infertility Related
Disorders
As we’ve already discussed, no couple’s story is exactly the same, which means
treating every couple’s infertility issues will be slightly different. In Chapter Six
we will discuss some of the special circumstances you may be encountering
including:

advanced age
unexplained infertility
secondary infertility
mechanical infertility
PCOS, Endometriosis, Fibroids, Ovarian Cysts
Cancer and Infertility
Tubal Ligation
and more …

Learning More …
In addition to learning the secrets my husband and I used to conceive our
children, we’ve also decided to add several appendices to the book to discuss
other options for couples including In-Vitro Fertilization; Using Yoga and
Massage to Conceive; Homeopathic Help; and Healing Both Body and Mind in
your quest to conceive.

Page 21

22

While some couples may find it beneficial to read the entire book from cover to
cover first, and then go back and review sections, which deal with their specific
issues and concerns, some couples may opt to begin by reading the sections that
best fit their circumstances. How you decide to use the information in this book is
certainly up to you, just remember the importance of establishing a complete
fertility plan that encompasses a variety of treatment methods to better your
chance of having a healthy and happy baby!

Ready to learn more? Great! Let’s get started … boy, do I ever have a lot to tell
you …

Anatomy and How It

If you’re worried that chapter one is going to be one big boring health and
science lesson, don’t. Sure we’re going to learn a lot about how our bodies work
– and sometimes don’t -- but it won’t be a repeat of junior high health class. The
stuff we’re going to learn about now is all the stuff you absolutely need to know in
order to get pregnant – and stay pregnant! Let’s get started by taking a closer
look at the way we are made:

What Makes Her Special
Women are complex creatures – in more ways than one! But nothing may be as
complex as her reproductive organs. Here’s a quick look at how a woman is
capable of bearing children and why it’s so important that each organ be in tip-top
working order:

The Vagina
Having little to do with your ability to conceive a child, the vagina is considered
more of a passageway for the penis and its sperm to enter the opening of the
uterus where it can do the job it is intended to do.

One thing that can affect your ability to get pregnant is the hymen, a perforated
piece of tissue found at the entrance of the vagina. While the vast majority of
young girls have small openings in the hymen, which is later completely torn
during the first sexual experience, a small percentage of girls may have an
imperforate (or solid) hymen.

This can cause blood from the monthly period to

back up behind the tissue and into the fallopian tube, which can cause
endometriosis, a major factor in female infertility.

Page 24

25

The Cervix
The cervix is a tight muscle-like tissue found in the lower part of the uterus. Its
main job is to hold the baby in place until delivery. However, it also guards
against infection by forming a mucus barrier between your vagina and the inside
of the uterus.

An incomplete cervix can be a cause for concern, since it is not closed enough to
hold the baby in place, thus causing a miscarriage once the baby’s weight
presses against it, opening the cervix even more.

An incompetent cervix can

usually be fixed by suturing the cervix closed until delivery.

The Uterus
A woman’s uterus, otherwise known as the womb, is typically a pear shaped
organ designed to hold and nurture a baby for the nine months it takes to develop
inside the mother’s body.

In the past it has been highly believed that a woman with a retroverted uterus, or
one that is flopped forward toward your pubic bone could not get pregnant. This
is simply not true. However, there are some uterine malformations that can affect
your ability to both get pregnant and to maintain a pregnancy long enough to give
birth to a healthy baby. They include:
A septate uterus, which features a band of tissue called the septum which can
partially or completely divide the inside of the uterus.

Bicornuate (two-horn) and unicornuate (one-horn) uteri feature either one (uni) or two
(bi) narrower-than-normal cavities. Women with this type of uterus often miscarry
once they do become pregnant.
Polyps, also known as benign fibroid growths in the uterus can interfere with a
woman’s ability to conceive, and need to be removed in order to increase their

Page 25

chances of an embryo attaching to the uterine wall. Although, removing fibroids
can leave scar tissue in the uterine cavity that can make it more difficult to get
pregnant since a fetus can have a hard time implanting on scar tissue.

The Ovaries
The ovaries may be two of the most important organs needed to have a baby
since they hold and protect the eggs needed for conception. Women do not
make eggs throughout their lifetime. Instead, they are born with the amount they
will ever have stored in their ovaries. Every month, some are lost due to a variety
of biological reasons, while one or two are released for fertilization. If a sperm
does not fertilize the egg, it is flushed from the body during the woman’s monthly
menses.

Should one or both ovaries (and the eggs it contains) become

damaged or diseased any time during her life, it can greatly affect her chances of
ever bearing children.

The Eggs
Without healthy viable eggs, a woman has a zero percent chance of getting
pregnant or giving birth to a healthy baby. Eggs are made up of some important
factors including its Chromosomes, which contain the genes that will determine
what your baby will look and act like; whether it will be short or tall; healthy or not;
fat or skinny; and so much more.

A human egg is made up of three protective layers starting with the nourishing
and protective cumulus layer; followed by the corona radiate, a protective single
layer of cells covering the zona pellucida, or egg “shell.”

A mature, ready-for-fertilization egg (also called an ocycte), contains only 23
chromosomes. Add that to the 23 offered by the male’s sperm and your new
baby’s cells gets the 46 chromosomes needed to be perfect. Miss one or two

chromosomes and your baby with either have a serious malady or you will
miscarry.

The Fallopian Tubes
Every month a woman’s ovaries releases one or two eggs to be fertilized so it
can grow in the safety of the womb. But, first, it must get there, travelling by way
of the fallopian tube, which connects each ovary to the uterus.

Without healthy tubes, the egg can neither become fertilized (since a blocked
tube will prevent the sperm from getting to it in the first place), or make its way to
the safety of the nourishing womb. Tubes can be damaged in several ways, with
the most common culprits being infection or endometriosis. While both tubes do
not have to be clear in order to get pregnant, your chances of conceiving are
reduced if one is damaged or blocked in any way.

Her Menstrual Cycle
If all of your reproductive organs are not working properly, they can affect your
menstrual cycle and your ability to get pregnant. Unfortunately, when it comes to
a woman’s menses a lot of things can go wrong. But, before we begin to discuss
all of the things that can negatively affect your menstrual cycle, let’s first take a
look at how it all works:

Step One
A woman’s pituitary gland releases FSH -- a follicle-stimulating hormone -- after
the monthly menses has ended.

Meanwhile in the ovary, a dozen or so antral

follicles (fluid filled sacs surrounding the egg), begin to grow. It is during this time
that at least one egg matures.

Page 27

28

In response to FSH and luteinizing hormone (LH), the follicle is released by the
pituitary gland, and begins to produce estrogen in the ovary. At the same time,
the estrogen being produced in the ovary signals the uterus to thicken its lining in
preparation for the egg’s release. This is called the proliferative phase of the
uterus.

In normal cases, one follicle grows faster than the others, producing more
estrogen, causing FSH to decrease and the smaller follicles to stop growing.
This signals the pituitary gland to release an LH surge, which makes the egg
inside the dominant follicle mature.

Step Two
This causes the follicle to burst, releasing the egg which is picked up by one of
the fallopian tubes. This is called ovulation.

Step Three
If all goes as planned, the mature egg will meet up with an eager sperm,
resulting in an embryo that will now begin to travel down the fallopian tubes,
toward the safety of the womb, where it will implant and grow for the next nine
months.

Step Four

Page 28

29

The leftover part of the follicle, now called the corpus luteum, now begins to
produce progesterone, an important chemical to help the embryo implant
properly in the lining of the uterus where it can grow. If an egg fails to implant
here, the uterine lining will begin to break down and your monthly flow will begin
again.

It usually takes about 10-14 days for your body to mature an egg and release it.
Ovulation for most women usually takes place between the 10th and 14th day
after the start of their last period.

Understanding the importance of consistent ovulation is an important factor in
determining why you may be having trouble getting pregnant. For instance, if
you are getting your period 12 days or less after you ovulate, you may not be
making enough progesterone to support a pregnancy. In contrast, if your cycles
are very long, or even irregular, you may not be producing eggs often – or even
at all!

Timing Is Everything
Remember, when it comes to getting pregnant, timing is everything, which is why
it is so important to understand your menstrual cycle. The biggest mistake a
women make is assuming that she is “normal,” and so is her ovulation. Most of
us have been taught that ovulation occurs around the 14th day so we should be
having lots of sex between days 12 and 15. While this may be true for most
women, it isn’t true for all women.

If you’ve been trying for awhile to get

pregnant, the best thing you may want to look at is exactly when you ovulate and
when you’re having intercourse.

Ovulation usually occurs 14 days before your period begins. So, if you have a 28
day cycle, then you can expect to ovulate on day 14 like the average woman.

Page 29

30

But, if your periods are only 25 days apart, you’re going to ovulate around day
11, so having sex on days 13 and 14 will be too late. Conversely, if you have
longer periods (say 34 days), you won’t even ovulate until day 20, so all that
sperm from day 14 and 15 will be long gone by the time it’s needed.

To better your chances of getting pregnant, be sure to study your periods; figure
out when you actually do ovulate and then make sure that you get busy during
the right time of the month! For some people, it’s that easy!

Of course, it’s not always that easy to get pregnant, especially if you have
irregular periods. Menstrual cycles that are way off the scale of normal usually
indicate an underlining fertility issue such as a lack of regular ovulation, which
we’ll discuss later. Right now, the important thing is to get in touch with your body
and your menstrual cycle so you have the information and knowledge that you’ll
need as you continue through this book.

What Makes Him the Man You Need To
Make a Baby
Like a woman, a man has several important organs needed to create a new life –
your baby. Without healthy male reproductive organs even a woman who can
easily conceive will not. Now, let’s look at some of the things that can affect a
man’s ability to impregnate his wife:

The Penis
Does size really matter when it comes to getting your gal pregnant? No, not
really, as long as the penis is big enough to get the sperm into the vagina and up
toward the cervix.

However, function is very important in regards to a male’s fertility. Impotence or
an inability to either have or sustain an erection can make it difficult to create a
pregnancy.

Other problems can occur when the penis is not formed correctly. It is important
that the opening that lets the sperm out of the penis be at the
center of the penis’ tip. There are two main variations that can cause problems
getting pregnant:
Hypospadias – affects about one in 300 men. It is caused when the opening is on
the underside of the penis.
Epispadias is caused by the opening at the top of the penis, and is much rarer (only
affecting one in 100,000 men).

Both of these conditions are associated with an unusual curvature of the

Page 31

32

erect penis -- it curves up in epispadias and down in hypospadias – and can
prevent the sperm from getting where it’s needed in order to fertilize the woman’s
egg.

The Testicles
A man’s testicles both produce and store sperm.

It is vitally important for the

testicles to be kept a few degrees cooler than 98 degrees for sperm to develop
properly. That’s why it is so important for men with one testicle larger than the
other to be checked for both hydrocele, a collection of fluid inside the scrotum;
and varicose, varicose veins in the testicle, which can both raise testicle
temperature and cause infertility.

Unlike a woman’s eggs, which are present at birth, a man continues to produce
sperm throughout adulthood.

Although produced every day, it does take about two months for a man’s sperm
to fully mature. The process begins in the testes, where FSH and LH hormones
begin making sperm and testosterone.

Once the sperm mature in the

epididymis, they travel through the vas deferens up to the seminal vesicle and
the prostate, where they are submerged in semen and finally ejaculated through
the urethra and into the woman’s vagina during intercourse.

The Sperm
Without sperm there would be no babies. Without enough of them your chances
of becoming pregnant lessen.

Every time a man ejaculates, about - 200 million

sperm are released. That should certainly be enough to fertilize one little egg
now shouldn’t it? Maybe not!

Within a few hours that 200 million has dwindled

to a paltry 100 million. Their job has just gotten harder.

Page 32

The journey to the egg is long and difficult. First, the sperm needs to know in
which direction to swim (statistics show that almost half go in the wrong direction
– maybe they should stop and ask for directions!).

Next, they actually have to get moving.

Many lag behind.

Meanwhile, the

woman’s body isn’t necessarily friendly, killing off thousands of others along the
way. For the lucky few, success can be found, but only if they are strong enough
and persistent enough to make it through the long arduous journey.
