Hi ladies, i know the pain of wanting to get pregnant after trying for so long.

7 people i know who had been trying to concieve between 6months and 3years gave me a tip... they were having 2 spoonfuls of manuka honey umf25+ a day.. all of them who now have children or are pregnant.

After ttc for 14 months i decided to give it a go... i am now 13+2 smile

This may be a total fluke but if it can help anyone at all its worth putting it out there

sorry the witch arrived faith. It's rubbish isn't it x

CD29 here so I'm sure I'll get a visit tomorrow - not holding my breath although temp was still up this morning.

Surely the magic honey has impregnated one of us???

Hi there! Sorry that AF arrived Havealittlefaithbaby. Mine arrived yesterday in full force too sad on cd 2 today. So... My cycle which has always been 28 days, for the last two was 25 days, and this one has reduced further to just 24 days. That's not even funny! What does this mean in teems of ttc? Heeeelp!

Florin- if it's a boy call him Manuka- or at least something beginning with M, for a girl it has to be Honey surely? !

Oooops.... Have just ordered some! DH will go mad if he finds out I have spent neraly £20 on a pot of honey, lol.

Lets hope this baby happens soon so I don't need to buy anymore ;)

Thanks for all the congratulations feeling very excited and scared all at the same time. Hoping it sticks now. Might carry on taking the Manuka as it is meant to be good for blood supply to your womb so surely that has to help it stick!
