Get Out The Sweet Potatoes… And Needles

If someone suggested it, I tried it. My sister heard sweet potatoes increased ovulation, so she sent me a box full of sweet potato chips and sweet potato waffle mix. Luckily, I like sweet potatoes! Then mom heard if you drink whole milk opposed to 1%, you'll increase your odds. Whole milk it was! I heard, maybe you're too thin. I called my doctor and she said as long as I was ovulating, I had enough fat. Then I decided to move on to Eastern medicine. I went in weekly for three months to get needles stuck in me for acupuncture. I remember lying there thinking, what in the world am I doing? But I was doing it for a baby, so I would try anything and everything. The Eastern doctor gave me herbs and told me not eat or drink anything cold. He said I needed a warm uterus to have a baby. Really?!? Okay, like I said, I was willing to try anything. I started drinking tea and warm tap water. I had read if you take Robitussin daily, you'll also increase your chances. Oh the things you do when desperate!

After 2 years, we both knew we couldn't keep doing this.
