    Hey everyone! Just wondered what your tactics are for getting a bfp? So far we have just been bding when we feel like it and keeping fingers, toes arms and everything but legs crossed! Obviously this isnt working so as of next month i am going to use a cb fertility monitor. This should also help satisfy my poas addiction lol :happydance:. Baby dust and luck to everyone!

    :hug:

    Hey Lillypie (cute pic btw).

    Well we use FF and OPKs - :sex: every 48 hours (normally).

    Poor DH is on so many pills he sounds like a tube of smarties - wellman, Maca, 1000mg of Vit c etc.

    And after :sex: legs up the wall and fingers crossed! sooooooooo very romantic! :rofl:

    hey hon - I think you will like the OPK monitor - it will help you pinpoint the days you should not miss BDing.
    We are also trying evening primrose oil this month, take by me (in capsule form). helps to promote EWCM.

    I hope so! Fingers crossed that makes enough of a difference to get our bfp.

    The wellman pills are meant to be very good as they give him everything he could need - folic etc so well worth taking! gp recommended us taking them and so does good ole' Zita West!!

    Yeah romance doesn't happen although Maca has certainly put a spring in our steps! :rofl: :rofl:

    I found a combination of getting p*ssed, being on holiday, BD every morning then staying in bed for 30 minutes and probably the most likely explanation - being completely the wrong time as I had just lost my job and the benfits that went with it....

    Fertility Friend was also very useful to help me pinpoint ovulation.

    Good luck

    I'm trying not to panic (& get obssessed) - this is our 2nd cycle (only?), but reading the board makes me wonder if I should do more?

    but I think I will get some evening primrose oil for me and wellman for hubby, just incase ;) besides, it should be good for us anyhow?

    what about zinc? I heard that's also recommended for the spermies?
