On electric blankets:
I have read on many sites (actual proper ones not people's opinions type ones) not to use electric blankets when pregnant- due to radiation and overheating risk.
This clearly is not a good idea and something that is easily avoided. The unborn fetus is likely the most susceptible to this type of EMF radiation.I have chosen to give mine up and trust me Canberra is COLD. I have a hot water bottle instead- and a furry man heater LOL. You could probably heat the bed to take off the chill- but I would suggest you unplug it otherwise the electricty is still passing through it.
Additionally, if you use an electric blanket during early pregnancy, you may increase the risk of miscarriage.Studies indicate that women who used an electric blanket around the time of conception and during early pregnancy were nearly twice as likely to miscarry than women who did not.
I ate the 'whole pineapple' thing last cycle and had an implantation. Will do it again. But more is not always better- too much Vitamin C can increase the risk of a miscarriage- so don't think I would go to town eating more than the one slice.
Am about to look into Swisee vitamins- want one with coq10 and vitamin E to suppliment my current ones.

Hmm, wish I had known that before. And yes, I grew up in Canberra so can imagine what that will be like in July with no electric blanket! Good to know. Will avoid using it once I'm in the cycle.
I would recommend another CoQ10 rather than Swisse. I was taking the Swisse one before, but noticed it uses soybean oil as the carrier oil. That kind of defeats the purpose, as soy is not good at all for fertility & to be avoided as much as possible. I found another brand that uses rice bran oil instead. The brand is Herbs of Gold.

What does the COQ10 do ??
16-06-2012 13:02 #134
It's an antioxidant & can improve egg quality. If you're doing a FET not sure I'd worry about it.
It's one of many supplements I'm taking. I have increased the dose massively too, after reading a lot about clinics in North America prescribing very high doses.

Peonies - I also use the Herbs of Gold one from a vitamin shop who recommended it to us as one of the best. How much do you take? We have both been taking 300mg per day. COQ10 is also meant to be spcecially good for the men if there are MFI issues.
How is everything else going? I have been trucking along - we have a review appointment with the FS on the 20th and will ask him what we can do differently next time? He might suggest going back on the clexane - it seems that we have been having implantation just not lasting which is annoying.
I have been trying to get back to the gym and would like to lose about 5kg between now and August hopefully. My acupunct also has me on some chinese herbs at the moment - the China Med range so have been taking that as well in the next 2 months or so.
Have a good rest of the weekend guys

Hi everyone! Sorry to see you all here again I'm on day 3 of jabbing with US and BT on Wednesday to see what's growing. I guess I'm really June/July, but I needed some familiar names. Tww will be first week of July. Hope you are all well, xx

I'll be doing an antagonist cycle this time round, when AF arrives. Have you done a long down-reg cycle? If so, how do you think the antagonist compares?
Hi everyone else - i'm not going to do personals as i've been away for 2 weeks on holiday, and there is so much to catch up on! I hope everyone is ok.
I'm just waiting for AF to show, then i can start jabbing on day 2 (as i said above, i'll be on an antagonist cycle this time). We had a great and very relaxing time in Bali, but i developed a sinus infection on Tuesday and had to have 3 days worth of anti-biotics to clear it up, so i'm hoping that this won't affect my ability to cycle! I'm thinking not, as i read somewhere that when women are on the Colorado protocol, they take anti-biotics? I"ll be chugging down the inner-health plus though, to get my gut flora back to baseline. It looks like i'll be having my EPU & ET in July sometime.
to everyone xxx
