flax seed oil
sex every single day during saliva ferning
OPKs, but I got a late start on them
getting a massive urinary tract infection--okay, I didn't mean to do that, but at least it didn't happen until after the ferning ended!
meant to do Robitussin but kept forgetting.
Added a little bit more to my herbal infusion (I have been drinking red rasp/red clover for about 6 months now). This month my "fertility tea" is an infusion of red rasp, red clover, nettles, oatstraw and a little peppermint (to cover up the taste of nettles
We started BD-ing earlier this month but because I don't produce much EWCM...I'm using real eggwhites. So far it's been a somewhat messy but interesting experiment....sure hope it works!!
Oh and I'm making DH eat breakfast and take a multi-vitamin EVERY day (he would skip breakfast weekdays otherwise
: ). He's also drinking lots of iced "fertility tea" with me.
I added some toy cars to our alter last night and some other little kids' toys. Wanted to make sure our intentions were nice and clear....we are SO ready to have a little one in our house!!!
gaiamom, I don't know about the baby aspirin. Robitussin can help increase cerivcal mucous.
Giving dh pumpkin seeds and lycii berries, and would also give him ginseng and hawthorn if I could figure out how to hide them in his food
:LOL OMG I thought I was the only one whacked enough to think something like that
! DH loved iced RRL, peppermint, nettle tea...til he found out what it was....
In addition to all of the fertility drugs, I"m drinking my clover leaf, rrl mixture above, flax seed oil and taking prenatals. Also, I followed Erin's lead and added some more baby stuff to our room. Trying to maintain the decluttering I did in the bedroom, for feng shui, but I still haven't gotten rid of a broken dresser.
Hope everyone's methods bring them luck this cycle
this question, but here goes...
What can I give dh to put him in the mood? He has got a low libido, he lost a job last month and money and stress, yada yada yada, I know I don't need to tell you guys how it is.
But I'm kinda wanting to TTC in the next few months, but he needs a little help. I read the earlier posts about the fert. tea, etc.. can anyone suggest anything to get his libido back? OR something?
Like I said, not sure if this was the right place to post this, but thanks for any tips!!
I'm not sure what there is available herbally (is that a word??) but there are definitely ladies here who could answer your question. You might want to post a separate thread just so it doesn't get lost here.
Not a whole lot. I'm trying not to be "obsessive". I'm allowing myself a small cup of coffee a day (usually organic from this great coffee shop)...I take a baby aspirin now since I found out I have a "minor clotting" issue. I drink lots of water during "o" time...we both take our vitamins and I give DH extra C, zinc and E. We definitely cut out alcohol except for a glass of wine or so on the weekends that it's "safe"...
I'm saying positive affirmations and if "fear" comes in...I try to "breathe" it out...acknowledge it, etc.
In addition to the usual accupuncture, pre-natals, charting, and body work,
I've added the clear plan easy. So far it ain't easy, mostly because of how you set the testing time, which I'll be able to fix next month. Darned annoying until then, but hopefully I won't need to set it next month, because I'll get pregnant this time.
Butterflymaiden, I made these carob peanutbutter honey balls that he always talks about making when he was a kid, and just mixed a bunch of stuff in them all secret-like. I know I could never get him to drink an infusion. I put flower essences in his water bottle once, just a few drops, and he tasted it immediately! It's like pulling teeth to get him to take echinacea when he's coming down with something.....
I am doing less charting. Not taking any progesterone. And trying to "forget" I am ttc and enjoy my dh and bd only when we are "into it". No more making baby sessions. Just making love sessions. I do occasionally drink green tea and am taking a b-complex vitamin.
We're using the method that was successful on the first try twice already - having sex when I feel horny.
Seriously, for me, my desire is totally predictable based on my monthly rhythm.
And for the not-in-the-mood DH, you'd be surprised what a little more "agressive" (as in YOU be the one to initiate and guide things) behavior gets you sometimes. Of course it is a dead giveaway when I lay the kids down to sleep in their own beds (DS sleeps with us still) and I think that knowing I am in the mood does wonders for him . And it helps when we deviate from the "usual" evening schedule, since that makes us think twice before just climbing into bed and falling asleep.
Can you tell DH and I are mismatched too? He's a lot lower-energy than me. I think for him it is more about his weight (not obese, but overweight) plus work-related stress - when he was out of a job and working out everyday, his libido went up a TON (which reminds me, if you can get your DH to work out, BAM, there you go).
My DH's running career has put a crimp in his libido, as heavy training will do.
I'd encourage you to try nikirj, but caution that it may not work. Some DH's like nikrij's will like that, mine is just totally turned off when depressed, so you may need to do something for him that makes him feel better about himself first.
Or, feng shui- wise put a peice of red cloth under his side of the bed.
