We are taking a few months off of TTC, we both got so depressed about the whole thing. But after reading the "woo-woo" fertility thread, I'm wondering if my bed is to blame. DH has a back injury, and we got one of those beds with the electric motor that raises and lowers your back and feet. I never liked the idea of sleeping on something with an electrical charge, I think I am very sensitive to changes in magnetic and electrical fields. But I hadn't thought of it's effect on my fertility until now. Should I unplug the thing? Sleep with my DS all night in his bed, which is right next to ours?
Of course, I also need to quit drinking my 2 cups of black tea in the morning. Ah, probably just wishful thinking.

Can you turn off the bed's motor when not in use? That should reduce if not totally eliminate the electromagnetic field.

You don't need to give up the tea! Research has shown that women who drink tea, whether black or green, are MORE fertile! The effect holds for 1-9 cups a day. I guess if you drink more than that, you're so busy peeing there's no time to get pregnant. Sorry I don't have a link to the research study--no time to search for it right now--but if I do find it online I'll post a link.

Try moving to DS's bed and implementing some other Feng Shui cures and see what happens. It sure couldn't hurt.
