Okay, so it's been approximately 4 weeks since the m/c. It's seems much longer. Mr. CB decided that he was going to act upon his own free-will last night, (ahem) if you know what I mean. So in about 13-14 days I'll be letting you all know if it's a BFP or BFN. I don't seem to have any problem with getting pregnant; just staying pregnant. We'll see what happens this time around. I'm excited. Nervous. Anxious. But I'm going to try not to get too worked up. It seems that we had pretty good timing, though. "O" was just 2 days prior. As you ladies know, it's tough keep your faith up with repetitive disappointments.

I've decided to try taking a couple of OTC meds to see if they make any difference. This decision has in the making for a few weeks now...

1- Royal Jelly. It's supposed to help with fertility and egg health, in addition to just being good for you. 2- A baby aspirin (81mg). I've heard from several people who used to work in an OB/GYN and reportedly this was given to everyone woman who miscarried with positive results. 3- Geritol. I haven't made my mind up on this one yet. The older generations call it "baby in a bottle." Per the bottle (in comparison to my prenatal) it was more vitamin A (6100iu to 4000iu), vitamin C (57mg to 30mg), along with calcium, copper, manganese and potassium; plus a slew of other vitamins and minerals.

Has anyone heard of these therapies? Any success stories out there?

I am rooting for you!!!

I haven't had any experience with any of those "remedies", and would also be really interested in knowing how they work. :)

The aspirin I know is used by most IVF doctors just as a precautionary measure and I have heard good things about Royal Jelly as well. Keeping my fingers crossed for a BFP that stays all 9 months!!
