Big O no
Calcium : Calcium supps were making my ph rise, stopped them week of attempt – consumed natural calcium sources – kefir, yogurt, milk – which are all acidic to the body
Magnesium : no
DH minerals: Made DH stop calcium too
Dietary Changes: Consumed ½ the calories I normally did. Ate only off of the acidic forming food list I found at: http://www.anti-aging-today.org/nutrition/alkaline-acid-foods.htm - mostly scallops and fish. Didn’t eat anything for breakfast but a small yogurt around 10am. Ate ½ cup chocolate ice cream every night before bed.

Caffeine: 1 cup coffee/day – coffee is extremely acidic to the body
DH caffeine : 1 cup coffee/day
I also drank 2-3 caffeine free diet cokes every day – cola and aspartame are super acidic – also drank lots of crystal light daily - Also drank one glass of red wine nightly (also very acid-forming)
Cranberry: 10-15,000mg fruit equivalent/day – WAY too many cranberry pills ?
Acidophilus: None- researched this and acidophilus is very alkaline forming in the body – didn’t want to chance it
Sudafed: Round the clock for 4 days around O
Others: Natural progesterone cream O-BFP, vitamin B6 200mg every day the whole cycle. Saw Palmetto up until CD 17 - had to stop cause it was causing O to be super delayed.

super hot bath for DH before every attempt are what worked I think - I prayed a
