We're still trying to conceive. And we're creeping up on 4 years, now. Recently, my husband bought me a book recently that was suggested by our doctor. "The Fertility Diet" suggests 10 separate diet and lifestyle issues that can be addressed in order to maximize fertility. The introduction states that undertaking just a few can dramatically increase fertility rates in women who are suffering from ovulatory infertility (like me). Adopting 5 or more is ideal.
Right at first, I was elated! 10 new things to try. Things that I could try for free. That would improve my health, and quite possibly encourage my body to ovulate and conceive. What more could I ask for?!
And then, right away, I was SO disappointed. I started reading each step and realized that we were already doing 7 on a regular basis. So much for this being the final step to making that second pink line appear!
Okay, so we're STILL not pregnant. And maybe this book isn't going to be a step forward for us after all. But on the upside, how amazing is it that by adopting the philosophies, tips, tricks, and positive habits promoted by Spark People I had adopted 7 of the authors' suggestions already?
I don't think I can say it enough, but I LOVE Spark People!
