Hi Rosie,

I drank pure pineapple juice for a whole week before egg transfer and it didn't do me any harm.  I also drank a pint of full fat fresh milk every day too.  Milk is said to make your lining plump and sticky.

I don't know of any other kind of nut to assist with implantation.  Sorry!  I wouldn't worry though, just look after yourself the best you can - that's all you can do.

I don't know if doing the above helped but I got my twins from that cycle.  ;)  Hope it's good news for you too.

Good luck xx

Dear Rosie Rose

The reason that brazil nuts are recommended is for their selenium content which is meant to help with implantation but if you can't get them, try other foods rich in selenium instead. 

Good luck

Thanks Ellie
Yes Brazil nuts are the best for selenium,but cant find them in India.Think eggs and tuna are good,but not as high in content.Know that Holland and Barrett do a selenium supplement,but dont think they have a shop in India ,ha ha.
They do have a Body shop though so I will smell nice during my treatment.
Thanks anyway x

Oooh Rosie, how did it go?  I'm dying to know. 
So sorry I couldn't reply earlier, I've been mad busy at home. 

In answer to your question!  Yes, it was my first cycle.  Hope you are lucky this time sweetie.

Just wondering if I should start a little business exporting brazil nuts to India!  ;D  I know it's a bit late to ask, and I meant to the other day when we were chatting, but could you not have bought them on the web?

Anyway, brazil nuts or no brazil nuts.... hope it all went well for you on Wednesday.  Let me know - only if you can of course.

Much love,

Birchie xx

Hi Birchie

Thank you so much for your lovely message.

Ive been having a few little cramps,but I cant keep analysing every feeling cos its driving me mad lol
You were blessed to have your twins on your first attempt.I fell pregnant on my 8th attempt and I knew straight after ET,I even texted my guy and said this is it.I got small cramps up to preg test...we saw sac and heart beat then sadly I miscarried.Time after and this time Im getting more feelings than the first 7 attempts,but just wondering if my mind is playing with me. Did you get any symtoms ?Oh well this time next week and I will know.
Yes brazil nuts in India would be great.They seem to have every other kind of nut.Will keep you posted...
Take care Rosie x

Really pleased to hear it's all gone well for you chick, yet at the same time I'm sad for your past failures - that's hard - particularly your m/c  ^hugme^

Yes, Rosie, I did get some symptoms.  I have looked back at my diary for you only today.  On day 8 (I had 2 day old embryos) I got what I can only describe as a pricking in my tum.  A couple of days after that, everything I ate repeated on me.  I suppose every pregnancy is different and some people have no symptoms whatsoever.  Only time will tell.  Oh for a crystal ball, eh?

You just keep on believing and hoping, and I'll keep praying things work out for you in the meantime.

Good luck xxx
