41 and BFP

Postby Whisper342 » Tue Jan 01, 2013 12:20 pm

][I have been trying pretty diligently for about six months now, we tried sort of half heartedly for six months before that.
In July I quit coffee and started suplements - NAC, vit B with folic acid, baby aspirin, primrose oil, and some herbal tinctures. I also started working out at a gym about 5 days a week. I was solid on all of this for 3 months, I conceived in October and mc after a week. I saw my OB and he recommended cutting out sugar, especially in drinks, so I did. I also quit the supplements. I then had a cp in November, just a faint line followed by a normal period at the expected time.
I did a juice cleanse, went vegetarian and working toward vegan since November 1st. Trying very hard to eat gluten free and keep the sweets to a minimum, hard with all the holidays but we don't celebrate them but our extended families do so most exposure to those foods was at a relatives house. And I did well abstaining, no alcohol either since October.
Finally today at 11 dpo I got a nice clear plus sign. And we are cautiously eccstatic :wink:
