I've heard that breast milk has a natural probiotic in it...called Reuteri I think. I don't know much about this, but I think it's found in breast milk, and you can buy it as a probiotic in the refrigerated section of healthfood stores.
I have this too! It seems to come in clusters-- like, I'll get it all the time (mainly at night, for me) for a few months and then not have it at all for a while. I haven't been able to figure out what triggers it. It doesn't seem to be related to exercise, for me. I would try the Natural Calm magnesium supplement. I tried this for a while and I think it helped, but I don't get RLS regularly enough to get in the habit of taking this supplement daily. Usually, I...

Cool! I am going to check this place out. I HATE my current, old, scratched glasses, but I've been considering saving up for Lasik, so I didn't want to invets in a new pair of glasses. I can totally swing this, though! Does anyone know how long it takes to get them once you place your order?
I just started taking B-6 because I have a short luteal phase, and I read in a few threads here that it is recommended for helping to lengthen luteal phase. I think this is related to progesterone, so you might look into it as well! I hope to concieve soon, and so have been drinking lots of herbal infusions-- nettle and oatstraw mostly-- trying to increase my nutrient stores. I have a friend that went to a chinese medicine practitioner and she was tested for heavy...
I've never tried this, but the way I soak oats to make oatmeal is by adding a couple of tablespoons of yogurt or buttermilk to 1 cup of dry oats, and adding some warm water (up to 1 cup) and letting it sit overnight. They usually soak up the liquid overnight. I would try it like that, and if there is some liquid left, just drain it off.
I like coconut oil for high heat uses, and I also sometimes use Grapeseed oil, which has a high heat point too.
Awesome thread! I am taking notes. I hope to conceive soon, and have been drinking herbal infusions for a while (oatstraw is my favorite, because it's so mild and almost sweet tasting. I'm trying to do more nettle, though). I have been using coconut oil for a few months in cooking, and we have been on raw milk & butter for about a year. I have very recently starting eating meat after being a vegetarian for 15 years, and I'm taking it pretty slow, but do hope to work...
My job is OPS, so I have private insurance (with Humana). I've only had it about 6 months, and haven't used it for anything yet, so I can't say if they are a good/helpful company or not-- but I am under the impression that, while I don't have maternity coverage, and will be paying out of pocket for a midwife, etc, they will cover me if I have an emergency. I do want to check on that to make sure before I concieve, but that was the reason I bought insurance in the first...
