Hi Girls, I'm back again. lol
Pitch - Before I forget, first off, welcome. Second, the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility has a lot of pictures of cervical mucus and lots of advice on everything. Also, it's not the Robitussin that works, it is the active ingredient Guaifenesin that is important. Some of us tried using Mucinex (again Guaifenesin) for a few months. I take Evening Primrose Oil before ovulation only.
(For Those Interested) ** I actually found generic "Mucus Relief" at Dollar Tree. They are bottles of 15 tablets of 400 mg Guaifenesin. I'm actually not taking it this month, but it's a great $1 deal. Mucinex was around $18 a box.
I mentioned the eggwhites last month. Val, Hey Girl. I appreciate the bacteria worries, lol, but at this point, I'll try anything. I did worry, but read so many positive BFP stories that I couldn't resist. (just google it) I used organic egg whites last month. You leave an organic egg out for one hour (set a timer), then separate the yolk & egg (I use a shell when you first crack it, leave the yolk in one side of egg shell and dispose). It's amazing how it feels like how our EWCM does when it's not super cold and firm! When I buy preseed, I get like 20 applicators with it. I simply used like a spoon over a glass with the egg white to put it in the applicator. Keep it upside down to prevent spillage. I put it in a glass next to the bed and it says you should use it pretty quickly to opening it. I inserted it like preseed. I did not notice anything different the next day or at all (bacteria wise or anything). The only thing I noticed was a really easy AF (no cramps), but no BFP. I'm sure the egg whites didn't have anything to do with easy AF. lol
I purchased a ovulation microscope (saliva) but so far I either get nothing or major air bubbles. It will be interesting to double check it when I get a pos OPK.
I purchased a better BBT thermometer with two decimal places (after looking at four stores). Turns out it is CRAP!! Walgreen's BBT thermometer has the worst reviews on line and apparently gives the same 4 temperatures all the time (It gave me 3 of it's popular readings within the four days I used it). I went back to my little BD brand (lol) thermometer. Everybody be warned about the Walgreen's thermometer.
I purchased some readings from a few baby psychics on line and they all said I would conceive by April, and I didn't...
So now, I'm out of money and surprisingly more que sera sera (for you French lovin ladies) about this whole freaking ttc thing. LOL P.S. Only my name is French, so if I misspelled the Doris Day song (I have it on my iphone - lol), forgive me.
That would be a neat topic!!! How did everyone get their birth name?? Never mind!! Just realized that would kill the anonymity!! Darn, mine is a kind of cool story! LOL Darn public threads. LOL
Caly - You should visit Taxi and I in California!! LOL
Taxi - Hope everything is going well!!!
Hi to everyone else! Rosie - The thread looks great. You mentioned garden pics. I have some of my flowers on my phone so I'll see if I can upload them from there. Hopefully I can figure out how to do it...........
Talk to you ladies later this week.
