So what exactly is inositol (or myoinositol)?  It is one of the B Vitamins (actually thought of as vitamin B8).  For women who are trying to conceive, inositol has been associated with higher quality eggs and may help with blastocyst development.  For women who have been diagnosed with PCOS, Inositol may help with insulin sensitivity of the ovary.  If you are taking a multivitamin, be sure it has the recommended daily amount of inositol.  There are also a number of supplements on the market that focus on inositol and other essential nutrients for those trying to conceive.

Even before I was trying to conceive, I had heard about the benefits of wheatgrass.  When I joined an infertility support group a number of the women there were talking about "wheatgrass shots" which were supposed to help them get pregnant.  So, is there any truth to the claim that wheatgrass can help you conceive?  Well, yes, it seems there is.  Not only is wheatgrass a great source of chlorophyll which can help remove toxins from your body, it also has 8 essential amino acids and many more nutrients.  In addition to all of the overall health benefits, if you are trying to conceive, it can help create an "alkaline" environment which is more sperm friendly than an acidic environment.

One of my most popular web pages is about women who, "against all odds" got pregnant naturally over the age of 50.  Almost all of these were unplanned probably because they didn't think they could get pregnant at their age.  Heck, the media is obsessed with how you probably have a better chance at getting struck by lightning than you do getting pregnant over the age of 40!  And yet the unexpected rate of pregnancy over 40 is second only to teenagers!  It seems like there is a disconnect between what is reported and the reality.  Here are 8 cases of women who spontaneously conceived over age 50.

Many parts of the country are still on the old fashioned "back to school after labor day" schedule. I can't believe it, but it's already that time of year again. Some parents love it when their kids go back to school, some grieve because their kids are growing up and they spend the bulk of each day away from home. But for many, it's just another painful reminder that the world seems to be revolving without them...other people have gotten on with their life while the infertile are stuck at the starting gate. Yes, I had many Labor Days come and go while I watched life go on without me. The school bus goes by my house and for many years it was just a way to mark another day without a child.
If you're trying to conceive, remember that babies decide when they're ready to come live their life with you. You can't force them to come just because you're ready to get pregnant (just like you resist being forced into just about anything). Try to be an open vessel. Tell your future baby they are welcome here with you whenever they decide to make their journey.

I frequently tell my daughter that I waited a very long time for her to come down into my belly. At the risk of filling her mind with fantasy, I tell her that she was flying around "up there" until she finally picked me as her mother. She seems perfectly satisfied with that explanation. To me it's not fantasy, it's what I truly believe. Why didn't she come sooner? Why did it take six years? I don't know, maybe she was waiting for me to work out all my issues. There was a time when I was so frustrated and bitter that I wanted to go tell all those moms waiting at the bus stop that there's no way they could appreciate what they have. Not being able to get pregnant isn't fair and it can take a a normal reasonable person and turn them into a raving lunatic. I never would have imagined that I'd be one of "those" moms waiting at the bus stop...I never take it for granted, but, most of all, I take note of how the tables can turn. Even the most hopeless of situations can turn around when you least expect it.

 Audra McDonald is an actress and singer who has appeared on Broadway and in the series "Private Practice.  She found out that she was unexpectedly pregnant last May.  I love when celebrities announce their over-40 pregnancies, because it sheds light on the fact that getting pregnant over 40 can be quite normal.  The media frequently focuses on the doom and gloom of older age pregnancies, so here's the good news!  Read more:

 from the article:

"Who knew that tap dancing during perimenopause could lead to pregnancy?" McDonald tweeted. "Will and I are completely surprised – and elated – to be expecting a new addition to our family. I am so very grateful to everyone in New York and London for allowing me to rearrange my schedule to accommodate this little miracle.
