That you have used/done while TTC that you would have never thought you would?




Me... DH and I tried using egg whites (if you never heard of it it's used for lubrication to help the sperm) and let me tell you it was so GROSS!

Clomid, but I thought the risk of multiples would be a lot higher than it is.

do the deed when neither of us had any interest. it is so not fun when you are both tired, or had a crappy day, or even having a fight.

Have you noticed a difference with the lemon water?

Nope, it didn't work for us. Neither did the Geritol or the spearmint tea. Clomid didn't either. Follistim was my friend though.

hmmmm I have a whole list

1. DTD without being in the mood
2. Going to the ob/gyn everysingle month, undress, open my legs and have my ovaries checked - every-single-time
3. Do clomid
4. Buy injections (haven't started them yet coz af has gone AWOL)
5. Tried lemon water (disgusting (tried to make myself believe that it was yummy) and in vain)
6. Prepare the bed before (i.e. one pillow so I can lie on it and another one just in case) + plus make sure that I am close enough to the wall so that I can put my feet up afterwards + a good book to keep me occupied while I wait
7. Stop temping - It was freaking me out
8. Do a lap
9. Feel so broken and useless
10. Becoming 'friends' with my ob/gyn

those are just a few things

I tried clomid since last July (2010) and it did not work for this time.

thanks sweet. It does and it sucks big time. I just hope that one day it will seem as worth it coz right now it surely doesn't

I do not want to hope, to think that maybe we did it - but then again I have no symptoms, we didn't do any MA, so it just feels even worse that af has not showed up. Yesterday I ended up emailing the ob - he replied back to test again on Sat. It is going to be a waste of a preg test and will have to see another bfn

I never thought I would be checking my cervical fluid, holding my pee for hours to take an OPK, temping so much that it became such a routine, or taking so many vitamins and supplements.

I forgot to add the honey/cinnamon combo too. I think it does work because I had better CM this cycle too. Or it could've been the green tea, EPO, mucinex...or possibly all of them combined. I don't mind the honey/cinnamon too much. It's just kind of a pain and one more thing to add to my arsenal.
