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!

I love smoothies and all the ingredients you listed. Sounds good I will try this!

Fingers crossed. When can you test? In 3 or 4 days?

I made it. I didn't follow measurements but its good but mine is pretty spicy. I took a picture and wish I could post it here in the comments.

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?

Hey thanks for responding to my post about the unhappy transvag ultrasound. Your kindness gave me a lot of comfort and I appreciate your taking the time to write that comment so sweetly. xo

Yes, I did use a tiny squeeze of agave in the smoothie and it was still spicy and delicious. I forgot to mention that bit. I'll be stalking on Sunday to see if you test. I know I wouldn't be able to resist. I'm excited for you and wishing you get your bfp. I'm only 3 or 4dpo (husband recently switched to night shift and so my sleep schedule is throwing me off a little)
When do you go for beta?

Well? Did you test? What were the results? Fx!
