lovingmy2seeking3 - I am also trying for a girl (after two boys), I am trying to stick to the diet as closely as possible, I ended up in hospital last week with severe constipation (made worse by some damage l had done previously to my coccyx), after almost a week of sitting on icepacks, not being able to drive, stand, sit, hold my boys I am definitely not going through that again. So l have had to ease up a bit. 1 kiwi fruit a day added in... and I have my dinner prepared a couple of times a week so on those days l try to avoid everything l know is a no no, like potato, but l eat what l am given. The meals l am in control over l try and be very strict.
I am really struggling with testing my PH, is anybody else? I bought the strips and l wasn't getting a reading, so l went out and bought a PH meter, not the one recommended on here (it is difficult to obtain in Australia), but another, I don't know if l am getting enough of a sample to test, in fact l am pretty sure l am not, anybody got any tips?
I am taking the supplements religiously, drinking milk, and eating yoghurt - not eating all my favourite foods, having any alcohol or caffeine, not adding salt to any of my food, and trying to avoid anything that may be salty - its challenging.
