Me (30) and my husband (25) have been trying for a baby for 2 and a half years now. We both have children from previous partners, and had no problems conceiving. So, when we decided to try for a baby we both thought I would get pregnant the first time. Haha. How wrong we were. I had no idea about anything regarding fertility at this point. So, after a year had gone by I decided we should see a doctor. I had all the usual tests And all is fine with me. My hubby had 3 sperm analyses done. On the last one ( August 2012) my fertility doctor told us that he only hAd a count of 2million and motility etc was very very bad. He said we would only be able to conceive through ivf.
Now, if my hubby had never managed to have kids before I might have believed this doc. But I just couldn't.
We carried on trying and nothing happened. Then I read up on a herb called maca root. It's means to be baby dust for people with all sorts of fertility issues. I got my hubby black maca root in powder form. It's best for sperm. He started taking it it January along with a few vitamins. I tried to get him to stop smoking but failed. Anyway after all this time I'm so happy to Announce I'm finally....finally pregnant.
I honestly believe it was the maca that did it. Although this was my first month using pre seed As well. I noticed my cm was never stretchy like I think it's meant to be when ovulating, so I thought might as well go all out.
I used opk and timed sex perfectly. I wanted to give hubby max of three days to regroup :-) lol
This month I've had much less symptoms than other months. Weird how that works
I often read this page for inspiration. It can be such a long hard road.
I wish you all the best :-)
