I just had my U/S at 5 weeks 6 days ( on Thursday) & didn't see a heartbeat but everything else looked good. Dr said usually 6 weeks is the earliest you see it but most likely 7 weeks. It's also amazing how much happens in 1 or 2 days....it could already be beating today. I'm trying not to worry too...

Sue I have no idea what my herbs are. I actually do the "double double toil and trouble" method....boiling them up every 2 days. I'm going to get a chart with pictures of all the herbs and find out exactly which ones I get. They change depending on where I am in the process and some they had to cha...

Foods from the cabbage family such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, turnips and kale. Also implicated are chocolate, peanuts, peanut butter, sugar a...

Hey Toobee Thanks for sharing! It's just a board to mention how great TCM is for women over 35 so what you wrote was perfect. I know a lot of older women are told to give up if their eggs look bad...or use donor eggs & I just wanted to give them some hope. A lot of people don't realize how effectiv...
