It may have been a coincidence, but the first cycle I got on the Fertility Blend, I am pregnant!! I am 6w5d now and nervous as can be but o/w feeling fine.

These are things I did:
-put dh in boxers
-cut down on my coffee
-switched back from soymilk to cow's milk
-tried to drink more green tea
-took Fertility Blend twice a day (it says to take it 3x/day)
-it took us 8 mo

BTW my dd is STILL nursing, at almost 3 yrs old, though just at bedtime. I've really got to wean her...I'm thinking after Christmas is over...

So hopefully this is it for us. If all goes well we are definitely done. Good luck to all of you!

Big congrats Liza! And congrats on nursing your dd. Looks like our kids are the same age. Fun aren't they?

Liza, congrats, tell me more about when you started the Fertility blend? I am also still nursing my DD who is 10 months, and working towards getting her down to just before bedtime but for now I start to nurse her after 5PM? What made you decide to use it?

I was thinking about using fertility blend or fertilAid for my issues once I got DD down to just one time at night or perhaps just waiting until she was completely done. Also I have not gotten my AF yet so I was also going to wait for that.

Well, I had only started it during the last wk of my last cycle before conceiving. So the first cycle I was on it the whole time, I conceived! I know, most likely a coincidence, but still...

I decided to use it after I did a medline search and it was the only herbal treatment that seemed to have any proof that it helped. Also my LP has always been a little short, like 11 days, so I was hoping it would help that.

I think it would certainly be easier to wait until you get AF unless you have a strong reason you need to get pregnant quickly.

Good luck!!
