Posted By Carla-spain on Jan 10, 2008 at 11:23AM

Well, My friend has always been a bit mad!!! She used to party a lot and never been at home. All the sudden she meets a guy and after eight months dating they get married. A few months later she has her first child. And now that the baby is eight months old........... ¡¡¡¡¡SHE´S PREGNANT AGAIN!!!!
What dou you think, is she going too fast??? Before she met the guy she was off work due to depression for almost a year, She´s only 31 and I think she is NOT beeing smart.

What to Eat for Enhanced Fertility

What to Eat for Enhanced Fertility
Heller suggests that women add the following five nutrient-rich foods to their diet to enhance their fertility:

Yams, which are rich in folate, as well as vitamins C and B6. These vegetables contain diosgenin, a substance similar to progesterone, which can help stimulate ovaries to release one or more eggs each month.

Nuts and seeds, including almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds, are a great source of fatty acids. Omega 3 and omega fatty acids are hormone regulators and vital to a woman’s fertility since a hormonal imbalance can interfere with ovulation.

Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, contain Vitamin A as well as a substance called di-indolylmethane, which regulates the metabolism of estrogen that is essential for keeping fertility hormones in check.

Oysters, which have the highest zinc content of any food. Zinc helps maintain a healthy menstrual cycle. Zinc deficiency has been linked to decreased fertility since it can slow the production of good quality eggs essential for conception.

Berries, such as blueberries and raspberries, are exceptionally high in antioxidants, which can prevent cell damage and aging, as well as help protect eggs and sperm. For women who delay having a child, protecting egg cells from the aging process is vital for enhancing the chances of conception.


Any Tips on Conceiving?

Posted By sweetk8ty76 on Dec 19, 2007 at 4:18PM

Hi Everybody,

Sorry if this has been posted a trillion times already, but does anyone have any tips on successfully conceiving?

I've tried all the typical things you read like taking pre-natal vitamins, eating healthy, exercising, holding my pelvis up after sex (gravity). I keep my fingers crossed every month and every month we're let down.

I'm also currently taking an anti-depressant and I'm curious as to whether that could have anything to do with it or whether it's even safe to conceive while on it.

I don't wanna go through fertility treatments and make a big ordeal out of it, but am I infertile, is he infertile? How does one know? It's so frustrating.

Any advice is welcome, I'm starting to lose faith.

Pills to stop contractions: Did you take them?

Posted By Carla-spain on Dec 17, 2007 at 2:48AM

My sister in law´s been taking some pills to stop contractions. She´s due on january the 15th but has to stop taking the pills on december 31st. We´ve heard that once you give up the pills, you give birth in a couple of days.
So I want to know your experience: Is the baby gonna be born before or after the due date??????

Unusual Teething

Posted By Lorelei Spirit on Nov 14, 2007 at 5:20PM

Audrey's bottom front teeth came in a few weeks ago. Tonite, I was checking her out and found that her top CANINES are now coming in. The top 4 front teeth have not yet made an appearance. I have just done some googling and found that eeth can come in in any order AFTER the Front four teeth, but found nothing about the canines coming in so early. In fact they typically don't show until 16 to 23 months. Audrey's almost 8 months.

The little vampire. :P

I'm not sure if I should be concerned about it. I am debating shooting an email to my pediatrician, but I worry that I might be overreacting.

What do you think? :ponder:
