    hi ladies - my waters have broken in the night!!! :happydance: - been to hospital to get checked out, all looks ok so far. been sent home to wait for contractions, if not then it's back for the induction on Friday!!! wish me luck!!!

    chattyb - I don't know the answers to all your questions, but in terms of when you take maca you can take it right through your cycle but should stop taking when you get a BFP as there's not enough research about safety during pregnancy. I found taking it with food helped, and I would take one with breakfast and one with lunch. It's not advisable to take in the evenings as it might have a bit of a stimulant effect and have an impact on your sleeping. I think I took 500mg tablets - starting with 1 a day and then increasing gradually to 3-4 a day. I haven't heard of them having different strength ratios. I'm not sure if you can take with soy too, but hopefully one of the others will be able to advise on that. Good luck xx

    oh, and Sparkle - it's been really difficult for us to agree on a name. Generally OH and I like completely different names - he tends to like more traditional names and I like more unusual names. We've finally got a favourite that we've agreed on but we want to wait until she's born before we decide for sure and before we tell anyone!!! xx

    Yay go Leeze!! I hope she arrives as soon and as safely as possible....can't wait to hear her name and see pics :)

    ChattyB - not sure I can answer all the questions but I took maca, just 1000mg per day and took it first thing in the morning as it does give you energy so you don't want to take it at night or you may not sleep well! Is zinc good for men's swimmers?

    Hi everyone! I hope it's ok to join in here. With 1500+ pages... I didn't read them all. :p

    I'm 33, tcc our third and final kidling. I had my IUD removed on Nov 1st, but since I haven't had any af for 5 years, no idea where I am in my cycle. o_O

    I'm learning so much here, and it's neat for me to see that there are several things I've been doing just for my own health that seem to also be good for fertility and such. I've been adding Maca (and honey & cinnamon) to my every-single-day morning and evening smoothie for a few months now. :D

    I'm excited to be part of the overall BnB community, everyone here seems to be so friendly and supportive!
