Don't Count Your Eggs

I hear ya Cheryl. The lack of control thing really is the ultimate life lesson in all this I suppose. Sometimes it does help me feel more in control when there is something I can DO, sometimes it makes me more frustrated when the out come is the same (no outcome) but I've just spent time and money on herbs and crap. But at the end of the day I do feel healthier and physically better, so I figure that can only help. Making peace with not having control is important for sure. Bringing our best self to the table every day is important. So is trying to stay positive. It's so personal. Whatever works for each person, right? Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I wish you all the best on IF Island!


I appreciate your insight and agree with your desire to stay positive. However, I am a firm believer that beyond your choices in your treatment plan, NOTHING is in your control. I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years, grow my own organic vegetables, and have been drinking wheat grass and grinding flax seeds before they were ever a trend. I'm also an avid runner. Yet my eggs are crap. The were crap when I started TTC at age 34. Who knows how long they were crap before that. If believing you have even the slightest control over your fertility benefits you mentally, great. But IMO, continuing to think that without any results month after month, year after year, is more harmful. Accepting and making peace with not having control is very difficult but very liberating.


Oh my Royal Jelly! Those words make me want to gag. I tried it. Took it each day for about 1 1/2 weeks and just couldn't do it no more. It is awful tasting! Doesn't taste like honey at all. Saying a prayer for you!
