Lindsay. I drank one cup of red rasberry lef tea a day for ten days up until o on the cycle I got pregnant. It really helps with Ewcm! But do not drink it once you o...as it increases estrogen.

Really, Kitterp!?
I havent heard that one yet. I heard about EPO (obviously), and musinex or robitussin, but I dont like taking that stuff even when I'm sick, let alone when I'm not. I usually get a generous amount of EWCM for about 8-10 hours on O day, but then thats IT. Before and after I'm dry as a bone (its awful). I'll try the tea!! Where can I buy it?

If that is true then you will be fine with pressed all other times. When you get the pressed you definitely not need the amount they say to use. About half is more than generous and still too much for most!

You are definitely in the right place to learn everything about TTC!

If you decide to get the tea......If you have a health food store near you they should have it. You just want plain red rasberry leaf. I took it as I was taking clomid and it robbed me of all Ewcm....the tea obviously worked. Justly not drink it during luetal phase or first and second trimesters of pregnancy....it can lower progesterone.

Great info, thanks so much! I'll see how this cycle goes, and if I wind up baby-less again, I'll run out to the health food store and pick some up!

Jeepers this place is being overtaken by Canadians haha!

Welcome Lindsay, I love the way you think. Reading your blog has just been entertaining me for the last little bit of the afternoon. If you think your dreams are strange now wait for pregnancy dreams, super realistic and totally insane!!!! I seriously thought I was going nutty.

Interesting re the EPO, my room mate at university started taking it to help her moods and I swear it made her more insane so I guess you are right, it just doesn't agree with some people.

Your hubby sounds really cute, it is so great when the boy is as into the trying to have a baby as the girl is (I mean seriously they get loads and loads of sex how can they not like it?)

Good luck with your journey, I hope it happens fast for you.

Ps loving your winter wonderland. I am roasting down in the southern hemisphere. Makes me grumpy (and means I have to shave my legs more regularly haha)
