This is a repost because I had no answers last time. :(



Does anyone have any? I know that ultimately, it's possible for things to help or not while TTC, but it's always motivating to hear that it made a difference for some & I always hope it can do the same with me!
I'm on CD3 and waiting for AF to leave so I can start this cycle already! I'm using an OPK and EPO for the first time this month, and Preseed on my fertile days- I really hope and pray all of this helps me finally get my BFP!

Any stories?! (:

I heard about the green tea too, but I don't think I can do that haha. I cringe at the sight of it, not too sure why.. But I hope it's your month too! Keep me updated, for sure! (:

Oh my gosh, I do too. Hahaha. I ALWAYS have " that feeling." It's upsetting that it hasn't been a good outcome this time around, but my first pregnancy was the first time I had a 'good feeling' and it was true, so I held on to that.
Hopefully it'll work out again this time! ;) I have a good feeling that all of this i'm doing this month will work too!

Oh I know...it's a constant battle with myself. I love seeing BFP's and people getting all excited, especially those who waited a while or after MC's, but then again it just hurts cause I just want my own too-like now! Wah wah. Hopefully we DO get our turn this month too, that'd be awesome! What CD are you on? (:

I ovulated yesterday, so i wont even know for another 16days or so ugh :( so far away!

I know what you mean, I'm happy for ppl but i'd be lying if i said i wasn't jealous. I know once i stop "trying" it will happen but how can you not "try" for something you really want...

Evening Primrose helps you get pregnant? Holy crap. I took it for a while before I got pregnant for a whole other reason and then I got pregnant rather unexpectedly after years of thinking we weren't able to. So.. hey, maybe a success story!

I totally understand. And, I also stopped trying for a couple months. We relaxed, even had a vacation, did it whenever, had fun with it, and still no luck! So maybe it just works on some? Idk, but I figured if it's still the same chances, then I might as well actually try! :)

Haha, that's amazing! EPO is supposed to help with having more fertile cervical mucous which obviously DOES help the swimmersss! Congratulations, that could possibly be a success story ;).

That is amazing, I always wondered why it happened.. figured because we just gave up and came to peace with it, but apparently there was also some sneaky unexpected help, too. I will definitely keep this in mind if we want to ever try for a second. I hope it helps you, too!
