Tynmeg- thanks for details about which strips you use. Yep, I bet they work a lot better than mine, which were about $15 for 50. Sometimes you get what ya pay for!

I definitely have hope about our BD timing this month, especially as I learn to read my body's signs, but time will tell.....

Acupuncture sounds lovely...and relaxing as you say. I think staying relaxed is a key element to all of this.

Exactly! Getting the BFN sucks so you would think we would wait but I cave every time! Lol. I'm cramping, very gassy and feeling heavy tonight but who knows?! We'll see what tomorrow brings.

I haven't heard of soy isoflavones before. I'll have to do some reading. I love finding out new things and it gives me something to do instead of thinking about being pregnant and goind insane with this TWW. I have long cycles so I take Clomid, I didn't O till CD 17 this month. Hope you get your BFP this month!

I haven't heard of soy isoflavones either, but I'm allergic anyway- boo!!

What do you ladies also take in terms of supplements? I am always curious about that.

I take a pre-natal vit given to me by my Doc at Kaiser. I also take 2000 IU of Vit D on days when I am not in the sun a lot, and I take 250-500 mg magnesium for my digestion. I eat a mostly wheat-free diet, I do eat meat, and I drink about 10 oz of decaf coffee everyday (should I give that up)? I eat a lot of veggies and fruit too, trying to eat alkaline foods (greens, etc.).

Oh, and I've been having minor but continuous pain on my left side by ovary area. On a 1-5 it's a 1.5, but it is distinct for sure. I also feel a bit bloated.

Why do the days go SOOO slow??!!

I take Materna prenatal vitamins and 1000 IU of Vitamin D. I also take Curcumin but only for 2 weeks out of the month as the vote is still out on whether it's safe during pregnancy. It's suppose to help with inflammation therefore it helps with blood circulation. I eat a fairly healthy diet, I have at least one salad a day with lots of green veggies along with some type of protein and eat my 3 meals a day. I drink Red Raspberry Leaf tea, it's suppose to be good for the uterus and lots of water.

My minor continuous pain is on the right side, hope that means something good for us.

Who knows?!?!?

Sure wish there was a way to speed up a few days. LOL

thanks Tynmeg for the details. I'll check out rasberry leaf tea- sounds yummy too!

I think about how many menstrual cycles I've had in my life that I absolutely paid no attention to because I was not TTC, and then think about how obsessed I am now that we are trying. A year ago I would not have recognized the self I have become! Ha!

fingers crossed for all of us here!!!!

The soy is actually pretty incredible. It's a natural form of Clomid. I read a forum that asked approx 200 women all the same questions. About 80% got their bfp their first time trying soy after months or years of ttc. A lot had tried clomid and everything else but nothing worked. Approx 8% conceived on the second cycle of soy and the remainder got their bfp 3-4 months of trying! Those numbers are approximate, I'm pretty sure they're close though. I'll try and find the page! Do a lot of research. You may find posts that say not to take if you have regular cycles. Not true at all. You can. In fact a woman I'm friends with on here got her bfp her first cycle trying soy! It's worth a shot!
