Back to Square one

Well we had a good but very hectic vacation- it was way too short for all that we wanted to do. Of course all of vacation I spent expecting to get my period, I had all the signs- cramps etc... got the all day headache on our girls day- we went to the Amer. Girl store, shopping and lunch. Then the next day, the day we left I started- figures.
I called the infertility specialist to see what the next step is, and now they are back to the approach you are on your own unless you want to go ahead with IUI or IVF. We haven't really discussed what we want to do, I think we are both hoping it will happen on its own. I am using the love ovulation test strips this month and we will see what happens. I am not ready to give up hope that one day we will be a family of 5!
I saw on the local news about a pregnancy diet. A couple who had been told they didn't have much chance of getting pregnant even with help (they tried for over a yr going to an infertility doc.) did researched, followed this diet and within months were pregnant. So its got me thinking, and wondering if anyone out there has tried a pregnancy diet and if it has worked? I am willing to try anything especially if it is low cost:)
I know stress is a major factor and I am under a TON of stress right now- I will get to that in a minute. So that bringings me to acupuncture- who has tried it, is it worth it and how do I go about finding a good one? I know here again is a cost thing. So how often do you have to go and when in your cycle do you start going?  Need some info.
Okay back to stress- My lovely hubby for my 35th b-day took me out car shopping. Mind you there was absolutely nothing wrong with our Hon.da mini-van I was just tired of driving a mini-van and wanted a change. I had been driving a mini-van (not the same one) for 7+ years (yes we were the couple that had planned on getting pregnant right after we got married so when it came time to get a new car before we got married we bought a mini-van knowing it would be filled with kids in no time-LOL!!! Boy did we jenks ourselves). I wanted a large suv. We found exactly what I was looking for and amazingly they offered us what we wanted/ needed for our van without even looking at it (should have been red flag #1!!!!!). Worked a deal and got a new car on my b-day:)  We started noticing a few things like it was getting LOUSY gas mileage and when I put the drivers side window down it smelled of mildew. Yes we asked about a carfax however we didn't push the issue, actually we forgot about it in the process of buying the car etc... (we had the kids with us mistake #2!!!!!); however we did ask for it and it is against the law not to provide it once it has been asked for. Anyhoo 27 days after purchasing the car we were on our way to my in-laws (about 50-60 minutes away) with both kids and my niece in tow. The car broke down on the way- the transmission went out! Luckily it had powertrain warranty left. We had a tow bill of $150; they put a new $11,000 transmission in and after being in the shop for 21 days we got the car back. It runs however it is still getting crappy crappy gas mileage (12 mpg!!!!!!), oh and there is still the smell in the door when you roll the window down and now we notice the passenger floorboard is wet and the car smells of mildew. We have gone back to the dealership however they are not willing to help us out in any way shape or form- we even tried to get another vehicle off there lot (wasn't really what I wanted but I was willing to settled to get out of this one!)however they are viewing the vehicle as a trade and will not give us what we paid for it and inorder to get the other vehicle they want us to pay $100 more per month for the same priced vehicle that we bought! Yes they must think we are stupid. I really and truely do not want another one of their vehicles because I don't trust them. I want my mini-van back however it being in such great shape sold in no time:(   So now I just want our money back so we can go somewhere else! Oh failed to mention that we referred my parents to this dealership (obviously before all this took place) and they bought a brand new vehicle from them!!! So I am completely, overwhelmed and stressed about all this. It makes me physically sick to think how they took advantage of us and we are getting screwed. I know I need to relax but I can't I just want this nightmare to be over!
