    Thanks! This is also interesting: DH and I got married on 7/7(/12), DS was born on 2/2(16), LO is due 8/8! Looks like we set ourselves up for life with matching digit dates!

    For DS we were NTNP for 4 years (including a year before marriage) and TTC for 1 year (5th year in total) before we conceived. Only tracking my cycle start to end without temping. It was on my 5th temping when I finally conceived. I'm currently on my 3rd cycle temping who knows maybe I had to wait for the 5th again to conceive.

    It's madness isn't it? For some ntnp is the best way for them to conceive and it just happens, but for others they have to track literally everything. I found it easy to become pregnant without actually tracking or anything before, but I don't now we are tracking everything but I have to because of issues

    Yeah, we thought just by sleeping together I will conceive. But no, it was on my 4th year when I started seeing a doc and found out I have PCOS and I don't usually O and if ever I O it was a weak one, well that's what she said. Like my eggs aren't that good. DH has no issues as per his test his swimmers are in very good shape. Before we conceived and after few cycles of clomid we were ready to look into IVF after 2 cycles off clomid but we were blessed with DS that cycle. Thank God.

    Quite a journey then! How are things now? Do you see any specialist? I have read that coQ10 is good for egg health as is royal jelly, I don't know if you have tried these?

    We're not seeing a specialist now but pretty sure if this takes long we will. I'm taking fertilaid again (took it with DS) and this is my first cycle so maybe it'll do it's magic one more time. But maybe it'll take 2 or 3 cycles before it works.

    It's a herbal supplements developed by a certain OBGYN. Although, before i took fertilCM and Ovaboost. This time I'm only taking fertilaid so is DH (before he took it with countboost and motility boost).

    You can check their site where I order. They have good packages offer. http://www.fairhavenhealth.com/


    Here are the contents of fertilaid for women :

    Ah I see. Looks a lot like the prenatals I take without the additional stuff at the bottom. I take a multivitamin, extra B6, B complex but during follicular phase I take EPO and raspberry leaf tea

    Took EPO this cycle had to stop it since I feel like it affected my CM. I didn't see any EWCM this cycle when i usually have it dangling out my lady part. Not going to take it ever again. We'll just stick with fertilaid for 2 mos. And if nothing happens going to add fertilCM and Ovaboost same thing with DH.

    Oh really? Wow, it's meant to do the opposite! Were you drinking plenty? Drinking more helped me with this

    I know it works for some but it did the opposite for me. Yep, i'm drowning myself already. I'm even taking vit c. Really messed up my cycle.

    That's weird isn't it. I wonder if it could be countered by something else? Or perhaps it just doesn't do it for you

    Maybe because i'm producing good CM already on my own and taking it messed up my hormones or something. So I'm not going to take that thing ever again.

    Maybe. It's meant to help balance hormones, but perhaps if there's already good balance it can mess with that
