so tired of popping pills and drinking gallons of green tea

Postby momoftreasures » Wed Mar 13, 2013 9:48 am

So in the morning I take b6, b complex, iron, 2 ovaboosts, two fish oils, 5mg DHEA, and then the mucinex and/or a Sudafed PE for the 5 days before ovulation. Then at night I take my prenatals (two Flintstones), two more ovaboosts, and a vitamin C, and again the mucinex/sudafed PE. Holy cow. Anyone else find this overwhelming?

I hear ya. I am not taking pills yet but just looking at the list is so overwhelming. All of this is making me back-pedaling re: TTC a bit. I'm getting too old, too tired, too lazy and too set in my way to do this. I just want to conceive "accidentally" like I did before b/c I'm not any good at the trying part! Hang in there.

All I can say is... I'm with you Momoftreasures. 4 pills in the morning, two at midday, 4 at night. Fish oil, EPO, vitex, vitamin B6, folate and multivitamin. I ovulate next Tuesday and this month I don't even feel like BDing... Very, very overwhelming.
