    Hi ya I have cut down a lot on the amount of nutrient intake but I haven't been as strict as I was last time as I feel I didn't want to put myself under too much pressure after having the mmc but im concerned that because I haven't been as strict my sway wont be as strong

    I think a relaxed approach sounds great considering.

    My Ovulation Chart
    currently TTC, Cycle #16 since last BFP

    TTC #1 - swaying pink on & off since Nov 2013 - hoping for a girl first but excited for either!

    Dec 2001 - May 2006 : 5 early abortions of healthy singletons (3 medical @5w, 2 surgical @8w, last 4 pregnancies conceived with late DH, all conceived while TTA/on birth control)
    Mar 2012: miscarried B/G twins @5w (conceived 2 cycles after remověng Paraguard copper IUD while NTNP), one twin was ovarian ectopic

    Me: 34, widowed, late O + short LP, normal-good hormone levels excepting undetectable testosterone, seeking a known sperm donor/life partner
    My sway: vegetarian LE for over 28w, skipping breakfast, fibre (ground psyllium husks) with/before/between meals, physically inactive, drama avoidance, ocassional minimal YesBaby lube as needed, alternate cycles on low dose Clomid, double shot lattes (with meals)
    Past sway tactics I've dropped (in order): Vitex, Sudafed, antihistamines, intermittent fasting, one attempt per cycle at positive OPK, one attempt in fertile period

    thank you we are quite keen to fall pregnant this month I still wanted to just have the one attempt but dh is insistent that we have 2 attempts do you think this will drastically lower the chances of conceiving a girl?

    Sassy, I'm sorry for your loss. I hope you conceive this month.

    I've just been reading this thread and I have been taking baby aspirin. Has all the stuff about PH been debunked now? Is there no need to bother with the aspirin? I have been taking folic acid, aspirin, Vitex and fibre... Thanks everyone.

    No, I'd have told you to add an attempt at this point.

    Here is the thing. I can't take on the whole entire Internet and there is SO MUCH pro-pH stuff out there that I can't change the world in one fell swoop, and since aspirin is safer than cranberry (for DW to take) I continue to leave the info up as it is for people who are totally sold on it. BUT I personally do not believe in pH (getting a boy with pH of 4.5 will do that) and both cranberry and aspirin had more risks and side effects than I like, so I don't reecomend them for the population as a whole.

    I would have you do every 4 days (no matter what days these are, just have unprotected sex eveyr 4 days) and then an additional attempt the day before O is due or at positive OPK.

    I personally recommend every 3 days to maximise/balance both pink sway and conception odds. I think E4D + attempt at positive OPK has too much potential risk to sway blue.

    My Ovulation Chart
    currently TTC, Cycle #16 since last BFP

    TTC #1 - swaying pink on & off since Nov 2013 - hoping for a girl first but excited for either!
