Ha ha, I was hoping you had an answer for me Oh well, bumping is a good idea.
On a follow up note, I have not been able to find one really authoritative source on when it’s safe and not safe. Books I have say it’s great without going into details, and various internet sites say either its great throughout pregnancy, or say it’s okay while TTC and right before you’re due, but not in between. I read somewhere too that it can lead to spotting in early pregnancy, which I really don’t want to deal with even if it’s benign.
So, my decision has been to take it for the first half of my cycle - day 1 to ovulation and then lay off. I had my IUI today and will be ovulating shortly so today’s my last day until I go for my beta. I do think it’s had an effect though - my lining was really good this month. I checked my u/s results from my Sept IUI to compare, and in Sept on day 12 my lining was 8mm and 11 on day 14, but this month on day 11 it was already 9.5mm, and on day 14 it was 13mm. I think that’s a pretty significant difference. If this IUI does not work, I’ll be doing the tea again next month, and if it does work…we’ll I’ll be picking some up again at the end of the 3rd trimester
