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

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!

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 ;)

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? !

WishingIWasLucky Fri 14-Oct-11 08:53:06

Might start taking it again! I stopped when af arrived confused grin

WishingIWasLucky Fri 14-Oct-11 08:52:25

PieMistress Fri 14-Oct-11 08:29:11

Florin Fri 14-Oct-11 07:57:13

wishing it may just be you ovulated a bit earlier those cycles. Mine are anything from 24-28 days long.

PieMistress Sun 02-Oct-11 21:42:26

Rooting for you happycamper! the evil witch seems to have come to a few of us!

wishing my cycles post m/c have been all over the place from 24 days long to 31 days - PAH! Acupuncutre is sorting them out though smile

WishingIWasLucky Sun 02-Oct-11 20:47:16

Keeping my fingers firmly crossed for you Happycamper. Let's hope you are our lucky BFP smile

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!

TheHappyCamper Sun 02-Oct-11 19:11:18

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???

HaveALittleFaithBaby Sat 01-Oct-11 22:57:37

Af arrived today sad think I will save the rest of my honey for when DH's health issues are treated and his swimmers are viable!

WishingIWasLucky Fri 30-Sep-11 09:21:17

Good luck Havealittlefaithbaby and Thehappycamper. I poas first thing this morning- BFN. Wanted to use and bin the preg test I had from my miscarriage back in march. It was a superdrug one, if that helps! Is cd 24 too early to test? Trying to be optimistic, but fairly certain that a teaspoon of honey on days that I remembered to take it is not gonna work miracles. We'll see. Keeping fingers crossed for evil witch to stay away! Fingers crossed for you ladies!

TheHappyCamper Fri 30-Sep-11 07:25:59

sorry af got you pie and cola ... was really hoping it might actually work!

faith and wishing - still keeping fingers crossed for you both.

I am also due on sun/mon and don't feel any different to normal so not getting hopes up. I've almost finished one 250ml jar but will still eat the other and see what happens.

HaveALittleFaithBaby Thu 29-Sep-11 22:03:27

I'm still hanging in there by a thread, af due Sunday but spotting so reckon I'm out. Also over 1/2 way through jar shock not sure it really works but it tastes nice so I too will finish the jar and see...

WishingIWasLucky Thu 29-Sep-11 09:48:11

Oh and sorry for the afs ladies, fingers crossed for next cycle being the lucky one x

WishingIWasLucky Thu 29-Sep-11 09:47:18

Hi girlies. Sorry for disappearing act: due to work commitments. Currently on cd23, out of a 28 day cycle- last two were 25?! Confused. No symptoms. where is the op? Getting a feeling that we've been duped- that she owned shares in manuka honey! Conspiracy theorist, moi? smile

PieMistress Wed 28-Sep-11 15:18:14

I agree generic think i'll finish the pot and see how I feel. We sometimes use conceive plus if I don't have much CM (similar to preeseed, can get it in Boots) but no bfp so far!

GenericDietCola Wed 28-Sep-11 13:55:30

Didn't work for me either pie - witch got me today. Not going to bother buying anymore - its stupidly expensive and I think my problems are probably too much for mere honey to fix! I quite enjoyed this little trial though - something different for last month. Next month I might try Preseed.

MammaInTheMaking Wed 28-Sep-11 11:53:41

oh gawd....i'm going bonkers. whilst in the honey isle at tescos i came across some manuka honey. said to DP that this is supposed to help with conception. DP sniggered and asked where on earth i find out this sort of information! Anyway, it went in the trolley and i had it on my porridge the next day. not as nice as regular squeezy honey!

PieMistress Tue 27-Sep-11 22:05:58

Guttingly out this month sad The most evil witch of all the witches got me yesterday! sad <sob>

I was only having a spoonful once a day in my herbal tea ....

TheHappyCamper Tue 27-Sep-11 19:18:21

dare I ask have we had any BFP's yet? <<hopeful emoticon>>

I am on CD24. I've been taking it twice a day for 12 days now I think.

I have no inkling either way this month but then I never do lol! grin
