Im just taking i-folic (iodine with folic acid) atm, and thyroxine.
I should be taking Vitamin D as my levels are always low, and my iron is normally borderline....Ive been meaning to make an appointment for the past couple of months or so to get everything checked out, but i was holding out because id always remember in the TWW and would tell myself "Just hold out another day/week...if you get a BFP you can save yourself a blood test and do it all at once!" ... that started 4 months ago. Really should get onto it!!
Happy O Week Disney!!
Munchkin, i hope you get a BFP soon.
EPO is to help with cervical mucus. I only take it for the first couple of weeks of each cycle, as it's not good to take after ovulation in case of conception.
Vit B is for luteal phase defect, and I have actually found it to work. My luteal phase is a lot longer than it was.
So so so tired... wish I could get used to hubby getting up early for work. Figure it's been about 18 months! I tend to wake about half an hour before his alarm goes off (so 3:30am argh)... and can never seem to get back to sleep! Even on the days he has off. I can't be this tired when I'm on placement for uni next week!
What are you studying hamij? I can't remember if you've said before...
Morning ladies! Good luck this week Disney, remember to sing to the spermies
Munchkin, I hope your test turns positive in the next few days
As far as insurance goes I am with defence health - top hospital & extras. It really only helps with the hosiptal stay other than that there are no real perks when it comes to having a baby using private health insurance.
I am taking Elevit, a calcium tablet with vitamin D and also a separate vitamin D supplement as I was low when I got my blood test and the level I need is not enough just with the calcium tablet. Nearly boffed the other morning taking all the tablets, the calcium one and also elevit are pretty big!

Top hospital and top extras. We use it quite a bit so we find its worth it
Phi-wise, I'm with latrobe health but unsure whether i will go public or private.
I am now taking b-vit, iron and hair nails & skin vitamins. I was taking elevit but have stopped and may start taking it again in the tww or when i get a bfp. I was also taking epo but not this cycle and my cm as been better than ever! Strange
Havent been around much, just waiting to O at the moment, should have by the weekend!
