It's been a while!

It has been a while sense I have posted anything. I have not given up. Just a short break. I started Fertili Tea the other day. Drinking 2 cups a day everyday. I am also on prenatal vitamins. I am thinking of ordering the ultra greens from I am also down to 1 cup of coffee a day which is really good for me. I was drinking at least 6 or 7 cups. I also put my husband on FertilAid. He takes 3 pills a day. I haven't quit smoking yet, but that is next. I figured one bad habbit at a time. Sense I didn't do so good trying to quit all at once. Now that I am down to one cup of coffee my next step is NO COFFEE!!! Even though I love it so much. I haven't really missed it that much. I have high hopes about the tea. I think it is great for fertility. And hoping it helps me. The tea is all organic and has a ton of great stuff in it. It has a minty taste to it. I really enjoy it. I drink a cup in the morning and one in the evening. Well this is all for now. I will keep you updated.

Foods That Aid Conception

There are lot of things to do if a woman plans to get pregnant. She has to be emotionally and of course, physically ready to welcome a new member to the family. A healthy diet and proper nutrition play a key role in conception.

Pregnancy is not simple. To some women it can be complicated, most likely if they don’t prepare themselves to the changes that they are about to go through in the entire semesters of conception – complications can be encountered.

First, you have to eat healthily, try to include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables (organic preferably), complex carbohydrates, dairy, meat or other protein. Make sure that everything that you eat is fresh. Quality is the name of the game. Eating food as close to its natural state as possible ensures maximum nutrition -- you have to make sure that your eating habits are improved. Instead of greasy burgers consider a healthy salad to fill you up.

Second, keep your food intake in moderation. Remember that everything that you take in excess can harm you. Maintain a healthy food diet. This will help you not to gain more than what is ideal for your body mass index. Some women are asked to keep an ideal weight so as not to jeopardize the chances of getting pregnant.

Thirdly, reduce or totally eliminate coffee, alcohol, or cigarettes. According to studies, most of the substances in caffeine can lessen the chances of getting pregnant. Smoking constricts your blood vessels, which reduces nutrient intake. Worse, it can affect ovarian function, and adversely affect the unborn child. Alcohol affects and lowers female fertility and increases defects in babies.

Fourthly, take vitamin supplements. Taking vitamins like folic acid, which helps in preparation of pregnancy. Most experts usually recommend folic acid intake months before you planned to get pregnant. Folic acid, a
B vitamin, helps prevent birth defects of the brain and spinal cord when taken very early in pregnancy. It is available in most multivitamins, as a folic acid-only supplement and in some foods. Some studies also suggest that folic acid may also protect women and men from heart disease, stroke, colon cancer and breast cancer.

Lastly, I know that sometimes eating healthy is not enjoyable because it means discipline. But if you really, really wanted to get pregnant you have to consider a good and healthy nutrition plan. You have to commit yourself to this activity and you have to keep it in your mind that you have to do it and start believing that you can do it – then eventually, you will do it.

Egg meets Sperm Plan!

Today is going to be a great day! Got up in a great mood and I am going to get some stuff done around the house today. We are supposed to get some storms and I love them as long as they are not severe. My son is a little full of it today but nothing I can't handle. He has a bit of an attitude problem. He has some pent up energy so I need to get him out of the house tomorrow.
I started a the egg meets sperm plan and hoping it will work. I will be starting my ovulation tests today and very curious on that subject. I am pretty sure I ovulate because my cycles are very regular so we will see. I have met another woman who is having trouble getting pregnant and she said she don't ovulate. So I am going to see if I do.
I have a very positive attitude on getting pregnant. I think that I will and pray every night that I will. But if I don't that is okay too. I have my little boy and he keeps me very busy. I am so blessed with my family and love them so much. I am so thankful for everything.

I know it's been a while!

I know it's been a while sense I have posted anything.I have not given up. I kinda put trying to get pregnant on hold. I have been so busy with everyday stuff. But I will be posting regularly again. I have been drinking my smoothies and taking prenatal vitamins everyday. And I bought pregnancy tests and ovulation test on ebay. It was a great deal I got 30 ovulation test and 10 preg tests for 6 bucks. Still working on the smoking but it is getting better. I will be starting the smoking patch on the 14th. I am excited to quit. It has been a battle for me but I am determined to do it.

There are two different websites that I am going to follow starting this month.
One is It's called Sperm Meets Egg Plan. Check it out it's very interesting and worth a try. And the other is It's called Vitex/B6 Fertility Recipe. Very interesting also. I am going to try them together after I go to the doctor and have a checkup to make sure I am healthy and ready. And talk to her about what I have found. You should always talk to your doctor just to be safe. I am so excited to start with these and praying that we succeed with a pregnancy.

Cutting down

This is the first day of cutting down on the cigarettes and coffee. I am staring by keeping track of how much I smoke. And how much coffee I drink today and then I am going to take one cigarette and 1 half cup of coffee away a day. I am cutting down on the coffee by a half a cup so I will not go through the caffeine withdraws. I will be posting on how well I am doing through this process. After I finally kick these two habits then my husband and I are going to do a fertility cleanse and start eating better. I am changing my eating habits a little at a time due to how expensive it is to change to organic foods.

I have been trying some new smoothies and so far I haven't been able to finish either one of them. The first one was a mango, banana, apple, and some spinach. It was terrible! I guess I need to stop throwing my own together and follow a recipe. The second one was oatmeal, banana, milk, and oj. It was better but I couldn't finish it because it made me sick to my stomach. I am thinking it was the milk because it makes me sick. I am going to by some organic raw milk because I have read if you are lactose intolerant you can digest it. I am very excited about getting healthy and getting pregnant. Smoothies for Life! Yummy, Fun, and Nutritious!

I babysit my nephew Bryce a few times a week and he is now 7 months old. He is so adorable and getting very mobile. I love being around him and my new niece who is two weeks old. I love babies and love being around all my nieces and nephews. I used to get so upset when I found out someone was pregnant, even if it was one of my sister in laws. I remember I would just cry because I didn't understand why it wasn't my turn. I felt so much hurt and resentment that I would fake a congratulations. I am over that now I didn't feel that with either one of my sister in laws when they told me they were pregnant with there second or third child. I am very happy for both of them and love them very much. It feels so good to not get upset, and to feel happy for them.
