One of the ladies on the TTCMA board has shared her secret for sucess with us all. She was told there was no way she could get pregnant without IVF. After several failed IUI's and IVF's, she managed to get pregnant not only once, but THREE times on her own using this "recipe". Sadly she has lost several babies for one reason or another, but is now nearly 20 weeks along with her precious rainbow baby. I thought I would share her success with you all. I started *some* of this for this cycle.
So here's my "recipe for success"
Lemon water 1X daily with juice from 1/2 a lemon
Geritol 1X daily
Soy (80mg for me) for 5 days early in your cycle (although I forgot this cycle and didn't take it until like CD11 )
Spearmint Tea 1X daily
Started drinking Fertilitea (WHY NOT??)
Taking FertileCM (again, WHY NOT??)
And DH and I BD'd on the hood for the car I swear it's something about the angle
Right now I am only doing the lemon water, geritol and spearmint tea. We will add soy when we start a cycle that would result in a summer EDD. Right now we are willing to have a pregnancy that happens on it's own, but I won't take the soy to help it along because of school.
Also, some of the ladies......myself included.....HATE drinking the lemon water. Instead, I squeeze the lemon juice, add a packet or two of no calorie sweetner, and then I shoot the lemon juice. It's still nasty, but it's over SOO fast! After I shoot the lemon juice, then I drink a 20 ounce bottle of water.
I've read Brandi's thread as well, and actually tried most of this
last spring/summer.(I never did the spearmint tea though). I'm still taking the geritol. However since then, we found out that most of our issue is DH's low sperm count. Now that it's back up I might try this regimine again sometime. I actually did like the lemon water, but I got UTIs both months that I was drinking it. I'm really susceptible to UTIs so I think the lemon water was to acidic for me.
