Wow, this thread is growing! ;) Nice to have so many new people!
MountainViews-- I loved your post about all the relaxing techniques :)...so useful and such good reminders! From what I have read on here, I thought it said that it was a great idea to take a warm bath before your attempt...because it would warm up DH "buddies" as well as lower ph in both the women and DH. I was definetely planning on taking a bath before our attempt...to both relax and lower ph and give the girl sperm an energy boost! :) Also, I love your chicken post using the mrs. dash grill seasoning!...I will try that! Can you give me your whole process of what you do with chicken on the grill?? ...I am so new at this chicken thing...we didn't eat chicken very often at all... more beef... LOL! :) Do you wash the ckicken breasts before putting on the grill? Did you marinade them in anything before-hand? How long, and what heat, did you use for cooking??... I think I tend to overcook chicken as well...that's why I like the idea of marinading them in something...but I don't think we have any options for that except for yogurt with mrs. dash, right?? ;) Also, I loved the info you gave about asking the moms with girls what their diets were... so helpful and so encouraging!!...we are on the right path with skipping breakfast and lots of diary!! :) What do you think about having tea in the morning?...I know you said that you have a cup of coffee... would having pepperming tea in the morning raise blood sugar? I've just been having water in the AM until noon right now...
BeadinBabe-- what is Heavenly Hash??...sounds super yummy...please share :) I need more food inspiration...and quick!! LOL :) Also, I am "tentitively" thinking our attempt may be around the 20th of May... in the New Moon phase... just not sure on the exact days yet... I am expecting my period any day now and then I can get a better idea for next month :) I have been charting in FF as well and it has been so cool knowing what is happening with my body and o... I never knew before! Anyway, my birthday is August 20, 1982... is that the info you needed to tell me what that chart says??... what is that again?
Oh, to keep with sharing our menu ideas... last night we had the chicken fajitas from the girl cookbook... that works out pretty well for us all... I just cook up some white rice and cook the ckicken with the mrs. dash chiptole seasoning and the others seasoning that the recipe calls for...along with chopped up leeks and some fresh parsley. It's still lacking salt...but better than other things we've had! LOL :) Tonight I was thinking of trying some buckwheat pancakes with scrambled eggs... another mom who was sharing her girl diet expierence was talking about buckwheat pankcakes that they cooked up... does anyone have a recipe for any by chance??
Talk to you all soon! :)
