Forgive me, I don't do a lot of herbal treatments...

Yeah that! You can also take in pill form but it would take longer to absorb into your body. The tinctures are better for all that.
Just go down to your local natural food place and you should find it. I think even whole foods has atleast one of them in tincture form.

Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

Hrmph, I'll have to wait...no WF & my nearest health foods/herbal shop would be about 2 hrs out of my way. Not going to happen during the work week & this is DD's b'day weekend & DP is going to be out of town for part of it, so...

Hopefully it won't take long...my uterus feels full/heavy, but none of my typical BT, headache, back ache, etc. Blech. I hate the way the stupid meds and treatment have messed with my otherwise normal(ish) hormones/cycles.

Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

I really want this 2WW to be over it. I am tired, crampy, and queasy. I just don't feel like there is much of a chance for pregnancy. Blah. Why isn't it Friday yet when we can have our POAS party?

Re: TTC 30+ 2/22-3/22 makin' turkeys.

I got the worst evap today. I took the test this morning, didn't see anything so I left it on the counter and when I got home from DS's well child checkup this afternoon, there was a faint, but clear pink line on the test. I immediately took another, but it's a BFN. I will be distrustful of dollar store tests from now on. I'm only 8dpo so I didn't expect a positive, but the evap really faked me out.

Here are the two disagreeing tests:

kate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! woohoo. thats great
Layney, thats a positive and the 2nd test was probably negative cause the pee wasnt concentrated. try again in morning.

for those of you wanting a darker bfp please go get a clearblue easy early +/- test. I have gotten twice as dark lines on those in seconds over waiting 10mins - an hr with others.
