Today I'm on CD5 and ready to get going on this cycle next week!! :) I talked to my aunt over the weekend (who just had baby #9.... :D) and she said she used some herbs to get pregnant the last couple of times and recommended B-Fruitful (can find on amazon.com) so I ordered that on Sunday and should be here this week! I don't know if it will make a difference, but she said that it helped her the last few times with getting pregnant and her friend used it too the last time she conceived.


 


I'm hoping the herbs will help, and I told DH that this cycle I am OPKing.... he doesn't want me to be too stressed which is why we didn't OPK or temp last cycle... but I told him not knowing at least roughly the days I was Oing was stressful to me because I had no point of reference. I'm also hoping that Valentines Day will be a good day (should be O'ing roughly around Valentines Day LOL) and that we will get pregnant this cycle!! Hope everyone is having a great start of the month!! How is everyone??

i'm on cd23, 9dpo which means i'm in my two weeks wait which is driving me nuts because i'm such an impatient person. the last few days i have felt a bit nauseous and had some cramps. but then i think this is just my mind playing games on me. i don't know yet, when i'll be testing. either outcome is ok this months.

how is everyone else doing? babydust to all of you testing this week!

@kristen, wow, 9 children! i think this is very brave. the herb thing sounds interesting. i'm curious to here what it will do for you.

@youandme - I hate the TWW - it's the worst! Just try not to stress and wait as long as you can.... otherwise the BFNs might stress you out more :(


I know right??!?! She is turning 44 this year and has conceived all of her children naturally just using herbs as the only additive... I could never do 9 children (the oldest is 23 - the youngest is 6 months!) but she is such a wealth of knowledge and recommended that to me. I hope it helps!! We will see :)

Wow, I could never handle 9 kids but some people handle big families so well. DH and I agree we will stop at 2...3 max. I figure if we are together we can have a one on one defense and if alone you can grab one with each hand.....Well I am now 4dpo, thankfully I finally O'd on CD 20. Hopefully my luteal phase will be long enough to give us a chance. This 2ww thing drags so bad. I just want to know if I'm prego or start working on the next cycle. I m going to try and wait to test until the 16th if AF doesn't show but I seriously doubt I will be able to wait. I think it would be kind of cool if I get a BFP to tell DH on Valentine's day. Hopefully we get lots of BFP's this month

@Kristen - can you link the supplement?  I did a search on Amazon and couldn't find it, I'd like to see what's in it.


I'm 5dpo and trying not to get my hopes up this month - our timing was not ideal, but we will have to see =)

@Claire - here you go dear :) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MXYSLM/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00


Let me know what you think of it.... I've never done herbs before, but she recommended it and it has great reviews online!! :) She also recommended Fruitful Vine by Mountain Meadow Herbs, but I was already ordering some stuff off of amazon so I figured I would just buy this one and see how it goes!

Thanks!  I can't take it - it contains Black Haw which is a chemical relative to asprin, which I am severely allergic to....  Everything else seemed safe, though I did find that it is NOT recommended to take True Unicorn Root if you are pregnant, so I would discontinue use as soon as you get your BFP =)


FX that it works for you!  I guess I'll just keep trying the old-fashioned way for now =)

Wow, Kristen...9 kiddos! That's a lot. But good for her, big families are awesome:) I hope the herbs help!

I'm sympathizing with KWoodrn, Claire, and youandme--hanging out 9DPO in the 2ww, and trying with everything I have to at least wait until 11DPO to test. I really don't have any symptoms besides being gassy and bloated, which is typical the week before AF. I have been feeling funny twinges in my lower left abdomen, but I'm pretty sure it's just gas pains. My temp has stayed nicely above the coverline, but it's creeping slowly downward, so who knows. Lol. We shall see!

Hey Girls!


FX for you Kristen!  I hope that works.  @ Claire, I'm like you severely allergic to asprin!


@youandme & littlebit this waiting game is driving me NUTS!!  I'm having cramps and water cravings but I think it's just my mind playing tricks on me.  I'm also on medication at the moment so it could just be the side effects from them. FX you'll get a bfp this month!

@Jenny - I've never known anyone else with the allergy!  People always look at me like I'm crazy when I read labels and then say, "I can't take that, but thank you"
