I like my embryos clingy!

By that I mean I have combined a bunch of implantation goodies from around the web and now present to you...

Spazzle's Super Duper 2ww Smoothie: -1/5 of pineapple with the core (for the bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory)

- a very non-specific five finger grab of baby spinach (because it's yummy and good for you and you won't even notice it's in here, I promise)

- 1 tbsp grated ginger, or more to taste (from the TCM concept of "warming" foods, and also another good anti-inflammatory)

- 1 avocado (idk, I read this study that avocados tripled ivf success and I like avocados. If you hate avocados, sub bananas here to keep the creaminess factor)

- almond milk, or really whatever kind of milk you prefer bc jeez there are so many these days (probably about a cup)

- honey if you want it sweeter

- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper if you want a kick (and a bit more of that "warm foods" factor)

- 4 or 5 ice cubes (optional)

* Blend, enjoy each day, and think about your embryos attaching to the walls of your uterus like a couple of kids wearing those ridiculous velcro suits launching themselves off a trampoline and sticking to velcro walls (do those still exist or was that strictly a 90s thing? Lol). Anyway, happy waiting!

Sounds like an excellent concoction!!!! Best of luck!

Thanks, guys!

Yeah between the ginger and the cayenne it definitely warms you up! Lol. What do you use in place of honey? Agave maybe? The sweetness balances the spice a bit. I made it the other night without any of the green stuff and it was still pretty delish. Smoothies are so versatile!

I could probably test Sunday (12dpo equivalent) but I still haven't decided 100%. I'm tempted to wait for beta but dh is getting a little antsy so I may just have to compromise lol. Where are you in this wait? When do you think you'll start testing?
