    Vivre - I really hope things even out for you soon. I know what you mean about temping and how this affects sleep. I seem to wake up too early each morning.

    Wunsi - I don't know anything about the assisted fertility. From reading your post I assume IUI is when they insert sperm to your own released egg and IVF is when they mix both outside the body. Is this right??? It must be a huge learning curve to get your head around all of that!

    Well, my funny story for the week.... I got the mopes on yesterday because our ewes began lambing and it made me crack the sads at how easy it is for them!! Lots of twins in the first drop of lambs and I drove round the paddock checking on them, moping and grumbling to myself at the unfairness of it all. This is really sending me nutty....

    I saw this article on the net

    Below are Top 10 best fertility food that can help you become pregnant and make you hold the baby that you had been wanting badly:
    • Staying hydrated by consuming a lot of water will not only help in proper functioning of all your reproductive organs but will also provide natural fluid for the sperms to reach the cervix. So drink filtered or spring water and increase your fertility levels.
    • Green leafy vegetables especially spinach is loaded with antioxidants, iron and folic acid all needed to maintain the good health of your reproductive organs. Folic acid present in spinach not only assists you in getting pregnant by generating viable eggs but also prevents defects in newborns.
    • Include a healthy dose of orange and yellow vegetable in your daily diet as they are good sources of antioxidants and beta carotene. Beta carotene helps in correcting hormonal imbalance and also eliminates the chance of miscarriage.
    • Suffering from endometriosis or uterus fibroids then gorge on broccoli, cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables. These vegetables contain phyto-nutrients which helps in regulating estrogens metabolism.
    • If your problem is irregular menstrual cycles them sweet potatoes, carrots and peas are must haves. These vegetables contain beta carotene which helps in regulating menstrual flow thereby increasing your fertility.
    • Enjoy a daily serving of fruits rich in Vitamin C such as blueberries, papaya, oranges, kiwi and strawberries which offer lot of nutritional benefits to women that are planning to conceive.
    • Dairy products and lean animal proteins such as fish are rich sources of amino acid that helps in generating fertility hormones FSH and LH. So include them in your diet and see your dream of getting pregnant realized soon.
    • Reach out for whole grain bread and tortillas instead of bakery products made of fine flour as they are rich sources of iron and vitamin B needed for enhancing fertility hormones.
    • You need to eat right fats if you wish to get pregnant. So a handful of nuts like almonds or walnuts which are great sources of omega 3 fatty acid should be included in your diet.
    • Lastly consume vegetable proteins in moderations especially tofu and other soy products which will help you in attaining ideal pre pregnancy weight and will therefore help you in getting pregnant.
    The food that your gorge on have a big impact on how quickly you can conceive. So have a meal rich in fruits, vegetables, dairy products, vegetable proteins which are good sources of Vitamin C, Beta carotene, antioxidants, folic acid and iron that can help you in getting pregnant quickly.

    Hey ladies, I was just wondering how long everyone waited before seeing a fertility specialist? I've heard after 6 months for over 35s is the general wait time? I've just started tww, the things we tried differently this month is maybe baby gel.. Felt a bit unnatural! & I lay on my stomach instead of legs up after dtd.. I have a tipped uterus & read in another forum that's the best position for swimmers!

    Nat: very big learning curve. You are essentially right. The sperm bypasses my cervix and straight into the uterus. It can be a medicated cycle or not. Medicated will increase multiples and I already ovulate so we want to do unmedicated.

    Green Tea: I had a gut feeling that we would have trouble and asked suggested to GP that after 3 months we should contemplate a referral to FS. She said 12. At 6 months after lots of testing that the GP can do I suggested a referral while we do some chinese medicine. She still wouldn't as there was no clinical findings to give him until 12 months. So eventually we hit the 12 months, had to wait 4 months til the FS appt and then we are still 4 months since then before it looks like we will start. I wish I'd pushed at 6 months. It is all a waiting game once you see the FS. Actually this whole TTC whether assisted or not is a waiting game. Hmmm... Patience would be a virtue

    Thanks angelbutterfly. Interesting reading. That article reminded me about drinking water! I did that really well one cycle intentionally and it made a HUGE difference to cervical fluid (sorry if TMI) so I must do that again....I'm hopeless at remembering to drink during the day normally. If anyone else has lower fluid/mucus I'd really encourage you to up the water intake (particularly around ovulation) and see if you notice a difference.

    Apologies if that is waaaay too much information....

    I've read that Evening Primrose oil can improve the quality and quantity of EWCM, so have started taking that daily. However, the same articles suggested that you should only take it between AF and O day, because it can cause minor uterine contractions.

    I've also got hold of some Maybe Baby lubricant - haven't decided yet whether or not to try it straight away or try the first couple of months without it. (It sounds even messier than the usual BD).

    And, being an engineer (and hence loving to plan and measure things) I've got hold of a Clearblue Fertility Monitor for next month (instead of the internet OPKs I've got now), plus will continue with the daily BBT charting. (I love Fertility Friend - way better than my own spreadsheet!)

    I'm also tempted to get hold of a DVD of fertility yoga, but haven't succumbed yet. (TTC has already become a bit of an obsession, and this is only Month 1...)

    I wonder if the best way to score a BFP is to book an expensive holiday for 9 months time, and then rely on Murphy's law?

    Thanks for the information angel butterfly.

    Green tea my GP advised me to see her after 6 months, that's when she did all of my tests, I do not need to see a fertility specialist as yet as after the thryoid etc is fixed I "should" be able to conceive naturally. Every situation is different though.

    Gentoo I have tried preseed which is like maybe baby lubricant, my advice don't use too much... Didn't realise evening primrose oil was good for EWCM its meant to be good for pms too!

    Well still haven't done hpt as yet. We had a big scare with one of our fur babies and to cut a long story short he has epilepsy after being bitten by red belly black 18 months ago and also the anti-venom didn't help with it either. But it's possibly going to be a long 3 months to gets his meds right. So I am really confused and now so hoping that It's going to be negative now as he needs all of our attention (+ our other fur baby needs constant reassurance). And when I do get pregnant I want to give the pregnancy all the attention it deserves and scared that it won'twhile we are so concentrating on Snoopy's wellbeing. Hope that makes sense so when I do get to doing the hpt and it's neg we will be giving the bd a miss for at least next month.

    We are at 7 months trying. We actually started about 9 months ago but had a Europe trip in the middle so didn't count the two months.
