After doing TCOYF, Clomid, Ovidrel, Vitex, FertilAid, FertileCM, Royal Jelly, Whole Food Vitamins, Evening Primrose Oil, Soy Isoflavones and PreSeed all over the course of a 3 yr period. Now in October I got a gelding(casterated male horse) in for training and sort of got obcessed with him. Didn't take anything special or do anything to help fertility. After one month of distraction... PREGNANT! Isn't that just the way it goes?
Course I was exercising everyday while putting this horse through heavy training. Cleaning his stall daily and hauling his hay around. I guess it was exactly what my body needed. :) I ate right too and drank tons of water.
So my recommendation for folks trying to get pregnant...get a distraction! Find something you're passionate about and get yourself distracted. Feed your body right and exercise.
Baby dust to all.

congratulations!! i hope the spotting goes away soon, several of my freinds reported spotting during entire 1st trimester and have healthy babies now!
I agree about distraction--just so hard to do and quite frankly, I have so many passions I follow--now I want a baby!
Thanks for the encouragement. This pregnancy is still holding on. I have ultra light watery brown spotting still, but only a couple of tiny spots each day. I'm using Progesterone Cream, Baby Aspirin and Zinc to help myself hold onto this pregnancy with all I have. Praying hard that I am allowed to keep this precious little one.
Congrats to you!!!
It is nice having a distraction after a very long time TTC (ours was switching gears and deciding to adopt)! And like you, threw everything but the kitchen sink at the last cycle we decided to TTC!
H&H 9 months to you.
I just looked this thread up and found I never confirmed the pregnancy. I am still pregnant!! I had an ultrasound on Friday and there is a baby in there. LOL.
WooHoo!! Take care and continued Blessings....
Thanks for the update---so happy for you! keep holding little bean!
I'm updating again. Got my 20 wk ultrasound. It's a boy!
I love these updates!!! Huge congrats!!!!
Congrats! i just can't believe it! Now were you still taking the fertilaid and other stuff when you got pregnant?
or had you stopped taking EVERYTHING at that point? so crazy how it works out sometimes but im sooooooo happy for you!.
was the only change that you were eating better and exercising and had the distraction?

Wonderful news! congratulations again&all the best!;)
Did you have any cramping with your spotting?
I love your story and advice! Congrats!!!
So happy for you that you have a healthy little boy in there!! It's so true that distraction is a huge help for a lot of us who were TTC. I TTC for 3 years with my first, and the only thing that got me pregnant was focusing on something else, namely my health. I changed my diet, got a very physical job, and when I found out I was pregnant I was shocked. I had stopped everything...temping, charting, paying attention to my cycles and when AF came. I just let it all go for awhile. I had spotting early on as well and it passed... I now have a healthy and gorgeous 6 year old son
