    Hello everyone!

    So after two miscarriages (last one in March) I am back at TTC, period arrived today (I wasn't being careful before but kinda glad my body can now have a proper period before I start again)

    I had blood tests at the doctors for Hughes syndrome (aka sticky blood) and it can back normal) but they are doing one more test for silica clotting time so who knows what that will come back with!

    Anyway enough waffling, I'm being nosey and want to know what's in your bedside/kitchen cupboard that helps with TTC I'll start (p.s I'm a hoarder and will buy anything if someone says it links to fertility!)

    Bedside table-
    HCG + OPK tests
    A bowl for peeing in!
    Basal Thermometer (for temping which I've never used!)
    Pre-seed (again which I've never used)

    Kitchen cupboard -
    Folic acid - take everyday
    Omega 3 fish oil - take everyday
    Maca powder - not using at the mo, but want to start making smoothies


    The things I want to add-
    Bee pollen
    Royal jelly

    Do you ladies take these at the same time and would you stop when you get your bfp?!

    xxxxxx

    Aww Clover, so sorry to hear about your loss :-( life is so cruel! I felt the exact same as you and I stopped thinking about TTC for most of March and April and just put my focus on weightloss and it was the best thing I could have done, before i was constantly researching miscarriages etcc and getting so wound up, I did manage to stop thinking/researching and I honestly didn't think about babies for the two months and got back to my normal self and had so much fun! I'm dipping my toe in now but I'm not going to be as obsessed as I was before.

    It's totally normal that you feel like that at the mo as it's still very raw for you, but you are strong and you will bounce back and fight this and you will get your baby at the end - never take your eye of the prize if it's what you want then you have to fight for it xxx

    Wow some interesting stuff in your cupboards! I will look into those thanks for sharing :)

    I had a chemical pregnancy last month.

    Bedside table:
    Thermometer
    OPKs (which I don't use)

    Bathroom: bowl to pee in!

    I have pressed somewhere too. I used to use it regularly but think it's in the garage from when we moved.

    Kitchen cupboard (here we go):
    Two lots of epilepsy tablets
    Folic acid (prescribed due to deficiency)
    Calcichew (calcium and vitamin D - as above)
    Cinnamon and chromium (in one tablet)
    Metformin (prescribed)
    Maca root tablets
    Maca powder (not taking atm)
    Zinc
    Vitamin C with zinc (I take this in preference to the above)
    Calcium with magnesium (not good at taking this)
    Ultra vitamin D
    Liquid iron supplement
    Iron tablets (not taking atm)
    Myo-inositol
    Omega 3 (don't always take)
    EPO (don't always take)
    Soy isoflavones

    Phewwwwww! They have helped though...

    To be honest, not a lot. Preseed (which I use around ovulation) and sainsburys own folic acid (which I'm really bad at taking-keep forgetting). I do have a cbft which hubs surprised me with and I'm trying it out for the first time this cycle.

    Wow phonix! I'm surprised you don't rattle when you walk :)

    My bedroom & bedside drawers dont contain anything regarding TTC unless you count the condoms since before we stopped using them and a set of fluffy handcuffs!

    My CB Digi, FRER, other pregnancy tests and OPKs are in the en suite (also with a bowl just to wee in!!) and the Folic Acid is kept on my laptop table in the living room beside my pint of water so I dont forget to take it every day

    So pleased its not just me who has something to wee in, I am so poor and doing it mid stream I cant manage it!
