30 Day Infertility Blog Challenge- Day 28

28.  Have you ever done something “non-traditional” in order to help you conceive?

Non-traditional methods.  What does this even mean?  Well, shooting myself up with hCG in the bathroom was pretty non-traditional.  And our eventual IUI is probably pretty “weird.”  But when we were trying on our own?  Nah.  I mean, there was the usual ovulation predictor kits, sex calendars.  There were suggestions for getting drunk, and doggie-style and legs in the air, or elevating my hips afterwards… but nothing goofy.  I’ve heard some pretty disgusting things like putting egg whites in your vagina.  Um, that’s gross.  If you were ever going to suggest that to me, stop talking to me right now.

I mean, we never even BD in a weird place while I was ovulating.  Am boring.  I’m not ready to “go gluten-free” because I love me some gluten.  So, no.  I can’t say I ever have.

Beta is scheduled for Monday.  Don’t hold your breath.  I’m not.

Even after reading about constipation earlier this week, the egg whites in the vagina is even more disgusting! I really hope there aren't lots of people that do that…

Fingers crossed for Monday!

Haven't tried the egg white thing because it sounds gross…but we do use pre-seed. And I've tried Instead cups after BDing (gross, I don't know how people use them for menstruation)…and I've taken homeopathic remedies….and I've drank fertility tea…and now I am trying going gluten-free. Damn, this is EXHAUSTING. For those that have gotten pregnant on their own and say pregnancy is magic…they have no idea what it is like for the rest of us!

Stay positive. Think happy good thoughts. Love from your Obnoxiously Positive Mother (OPM). You may want to add that one to your abbreviations. 🙂
