AF hasn't shown yet, but 2 BFN lead me to believe I will be at it again in April. The moon however is not on my side! I will O around 4/25 and since last time the EW sank, I will be pushing the fruit juice with DH as it worked in the past. I also need to calibrate my pH meter. Any thouhts on that??? I know I can probably find out online, I just haven't tried yet. Blessings to all TTC in April Hearts

 Hi Erin!  I have heard of the juice for DH = floating egg whites trick.  I really need to give that one a try.  In terms of calibrating the PH meter, do you have the calibration solutions?  I've always just dipped them in the solution and then tweeked the bar in the back with a screw driver till they read the correct number for the solution.  Sorry to hear about the moon phase, but hey at least it's not too hot outside yet.  I'm a firm believer that the AZ heat helped me get my girls.  

Good Luck Clover

Well girls, I thought that I would tell you about my recent experiments.  For starters, my EW will not float without adding sugar water to the semen.  I had always been wary of using this trick because I've heard that the SW can kill off the sperm.  I always look at the semen under the microscope for the before shot if you would and have learned to "find" the spermies quickly.  If anyone needs microscope help, I'd be happy to pass on what I know so far.  I've been warming the EW inside of a syringe placed in a ziplock bag full of warm water.   I keep the test tube at a 45 degree angle by cutting apart the egg carton and taping the TT to it (I'll add a pic soon).  The little thermometer that comes with the incubator (from the FAQ) sucks!  I will most definitely be investing in a digital one soon.

So far, when the hour of incubation is up, I am not finding enough moving sperm to call the experiment a success.  The sperm that are moving are not moving fast enough for me to make heads or tails of there swimming pattern.  It's entirely possible that I need to remove more layers from the top.  However, last night I looked at the semen under the microscope just after mixing it with SW (before adding any EW or incubating) and low and behold...nothing but spermies stopped frozen in their tracks!  So, as of now, I am pouring juice down my soda addict of DH's throat to get away from the SW trick.  Oh well, he'll have to give up soda for the boy diet come Sept. anyway Happy Giggle

Let's hear about your mad science!

PuppyDogTailDreams:

I think that the SW is actually "speeding" up the sperm which is causing them to burn out too quickly.  I used SW for almost a year and the movement was next to nothing after the hour of incubation.  I would truly recommend not even trying the SW, I always felt that even if you see movement after the hour they burn out before reaching their destination. 

Thickening the sperm a natural way is so much better, what happens when DH drinks alot of fruit juice?  Do you notice a difference?

DH caught an awful bug, so no experiments till he feels better.  I can't wait to see if the juice trick works though.  I am really lucky to have a DH that is so on-board with EGS.  He's just not too excited about the diet and supplements.  I pack his lunch every day though.  Hmmm, I need 100 ways to dress up meat and potatoes.

 Hi girls

Im thinking to do a swim up just to see the sperms. What test tube would be the best to use ? There is so many out there when I try to search online. Has to be plastic right? Because it's to long to fit in the icubator so I have to cut it I think....some has flat bottom some are kinda pointy is that matter?Im in the US.  

thank

Hello ladies,

Just dropping by to report my BFP on 4/12!!! My attempt was horrible, but being stubborn I sorted until I found a small amount of boy swimmers. I didn't figure I would even get preg bc many sperm weren't even moving after the incubation period. BTW, DH had been eating a lot of fruit but not drinking juice and the EW sank, so eating fruit apparently isn't the key, or maybe it is for your DH, but def not for mine. I got 3 BFN the week before so I figured I wasn't and waited for AF. Well it didn't come Monday or Tuesday by noon so I tested and got 2 lines. We feel very blessed, as I had remarked that if I even got preg from that attempt it would be an act of God. Well I guess He was up to the challenge! Now we will see if its a boy or a girl!!

Blessing as you continue TTC Hearts

 yes it is there right...only ONE type of test tube exactly , under equipment list and nothing else about test tubes ,pippets and syringe or any note .

 I guess you use this one. But like I said there is so many out there and I don't think every one use the exact same type.

So Im interested what other type of tubes has been used ? 

thanks girls

oh I see.  Well lots of different ones have been used.  as long as it doesn't have latex in the test tube than anything will work

Erin - Happy Celebrate Congrats on your BFP! Happy Celebrate  I'm so happy for youHappy Smile  I'm glad to hear that you found a section of straight swimmers.

To a Happy and Healthy 9 Months and Hearing Blue- CHEERS!

WMB - Welcome!  I hope that you do decide to join us.  Yes, I have heard of some people cutting the test tube that is listed in the FAQ.  I've just ordered mine today (I've been using one that came with my science kit just for experiments sake).  I'll let you know if I have to cut it.

AP19 - Welcome as well!  Are you planning on starting the diet and supplements in May?  What equipment do you have together so far?
