Am I pregnant?

Hello everyone,

I know buying a pregnancy test would be quicker and easier, but then I would only get a “yes” or “no” as an answer, and I think I need more than that :). I always wanted to have baby, but life got in the way (or, at the key moments, I was unsure whether it was a good idea or not). The thing is two years ago I was diagnosed with endometriosis, and I was told I wouldn’t be able to get pregnant because of that and because of my age (I’m 41). Since then, I’ve only had unprotected sex and I‘ve never got pregnant. And even though it was expected, there is something inside me that feels I could still get pregnant. I couldn’t explain why, but I feel I could, regardless what the gynecologist said.
I was offered to try assisted reproduction with an egg of a donor, but I rejected it. I’d love to have a baby (the idea scares me, but I would love to), but it should happen naturally or not happen at all.
The thing is I have a delay in my menstruation, and I’m tired and sick, so I asked the Ying: Am I pregnant? I got Hexagram 64.4.6 to 7.
The way I see it, it might be saying that I am not pregnant (there is a failure). But does it also imply that the general idea of having a baby is a failure and I should get over it? Or maybe it indicates that, with patience, I could, eventually, get pregnant? If 7 describes the context, it could describe my wish of getting pregnant (although I’m not obsessed with it), but looks like something that’s not achievable without a big, big, effort (?). Any thoughts would be much appreciated :)

Am I pregnant? 64.4.6 > 7

I don't think you are right now - but if it turns out you are, run to the doctor's.

You say 2 years ago you were told pregnancy will be a big issue.
Line 64.4 speaks of a 3 year battle, and even then the situation will be in the hands of a team of experts (7).
Because of the 'battle' mentioned, I believe you should accept assisted reproduction.

Hidden line is 4.6, and 4 being a baby, 4.6 sounds dangerous.
When you do get pregnant (which does sound possible with assistance) you'll need intensive supervision (7).

Many, many thanks, diamanda

I think you are spot on about everything. I realise now that line 6 could meant that I’m being, somehow, delusional about the whole baby thing, thinking that I can get pregnant without assistance regardless of what the doctors say. I also think that I could, as you say, if I persevere in this mindset, but there is a long battle to fight. At my age, it’s kind of a now or never thing, so if I’m determined to be a mother, I should start taking the issue seriously. I’m still sure that I don’t want to use an egg of a donor, and will avoid the hormone treatment and the assisted conception. I trust my body and if it considers I’m too old to conceive, then so be it. Having said that, it is true that endometriosis can be more or less addressed with a holistic treatment that includes a change of diet, acupuncture and herbal supplements. I think there are other, more natural ways of boosting my fertility, and I’m going to try that… the Yi spoke of a battle, but didn’t specify the weapons. I just hope I’m not being delusional again :)

Hi

I would read 63zhi7 as either you already are pregnant or you would be in the near future. There seem to be some health issues (so you need to take extra care) but nevertheless good possibilities.

Thanks a lot Sixth Relative! Your interpretations sounds very auspicious :) I more or less inferred the health issues and the possibilities, but couldn't see that I might be right now or in a near future (I focused on the 3 year battle). May I ask where do you see that I could be pregnant right now (I am trying to learn a bit from everyone of you :))

Just for the record (because I think that's the kind of post that's worth updating; well, all posts are...), today I started my period, so no, I was not pregnant :(
So I couldn't help but asked : Will I ever have a baby? And got hexagram 10.1.5 to 64. Funny that I got 64 now as a relating hexagram; I guess it means this is where I am now. The main hexagram, especially line 5 doesn't sound very auspicious. It speaks, in any case, of being extra careful (persevering is dangerous), and 10.1 about not forcing things. So if I put it all ltogether, it seems to say that I shouldn't push things, because it's dangerous. Another, more easy on me, reading would be: I shouldn't get obessed with the idea and just go with the flow, knowing that if I get pregnant, I should be extra careful and prepare myself for that. But maybe I'm being delusional and the Yi it's saying I should prepare for not being a mother, because life could still be great without babies... don't know; it's difficult to interpret one's casts and not being partial, especially when one questions about such transcendent issues.

Will I ever have a baby? 10.1.5 > 64
If you start with plain steps, taking it easy and naturally (10.1), and then only later down the line you go for decisive steps (10.5), then it won't happen I'm afraid (64).

Well, 64 has the image of a fox in the middle of crossing the river; it's an ongoing process: not yet completed but on the go. The reason why I said either already or in the near future is because many times the process of getting pregnant starts way before the actual conception (meaning; wishing, planning, dreaming about getting pregnant, etc.).

Best wishes

Thanks for the explanation, Six Relative :)
To me it's funny that this hexagram came as the main hexagran on my first question (Am I pregnant?) and as a relating hexagram on my second one ("Will I ever have a baby?"). I tend to consider the relating hexagram as the one that shows where I am, the current circumstances. So, somehow, first 64 indicated where I was tending to and now shows where I am, as if I had started just playing with the idea of being a mother and now I'm more determined. Not sure if that makes any sense. But I've started a treatment to try and get pregnant naturally (chinese medicine) and will see whether it works or not. :)
Thanks again for your comments.
