Pineapple?

I just heard from a friend that eating pineapple will help me get preggers. Anybody know if this is true? What other magic foods are out there? At this point I'll try anything, even if just for fun! I've only heard about yams contributing to twins.

Re: Pineapple?

Hi! I just happened to pop on to see how everyone was doing

I definitely believe what I ate and drank helped me get a BFP!

from about cd7 or CD8 all the way until 2 days after O, I drank 2 glasses of grapefruit juice a day (morning and night) and I ate about 10-15 baby carrots with my lunch everyday.
The reason wy I think it helped? MAJOR EWCM!!! Wich was much different than the months I didn't do it.
Hope this hepls!! It can't hurt right??

But NO grapefruit juice after O. it can make your uterus contract and effect implantation.

*************lots and lots of sticky baby dust!!!*************

Lightbulb Re: Pineapple?

I have heard that pineapple helps with implantation so it might be something to snack on after O and BD! I tried it this past cycle (was doing IVF) and got one to implant but it turned into a chemical pregnancy. I only ate it one time 2 days after my transfer. This time, with IVF #3, I'm going to stock up on it for several days.

BTW, acupuncture is also suppose to help with follicle growth and implantation!

Good luck to everyone!
That's interesting about the yams...maybe I'll try that too!

Re: Pineapple?

Like I said, I was a guinea pig the past 2 wks. I can not belileve the CM that I have! OMG!! I haven't even ovulated yet (probably today or tomorrow). Anyway, I NEVER have this much CM EVER! I've been drinking pineapple juice and green tea every day. I tried the grapefruit, as well as pomegranite juice, but hated the taste. I will continue the pineapple juice after ovulation for sure! What about green tea, is that okay too?

Thank you guys so much. You are awesome!!! I'm so excited now, maybe, just maybe, this will be our month. Now if I can just find foods that increase progesterone levels! LOL!

Re: Pineapple?

Wow that's amazing that it did that for you!
As for progesterone, I don't know any foods that raise it (if I get bored tonight I'll research that for ya) but I do know you can use progesterone cream.

Are you sure you have low progesterone levels?

Re: Pineapple?

Just a little funny note, to lighten the mood a bit. Went out to eat with the DH tonight for a little time away. I was telling him how the pinapple was supposed to increase CM and such. Suddenly, he gets up and walks away...

When he comes back from the buffet- he has a HEAPING plate of pineapples, which he sits infront of me and declares -loudly- " Anything for our little swimmers!" I about DIED. But it was so funny.

Re: Pineapple?

It was funny. I thought I'd share it with you all- mebbe it'd be worth a smile. He's got a good heart, just sometimes he gets a little -too- excited. I just hope he'll be able to deal with me if this clomid sends me into hormone hell.
