TTC after 35

Gluten... For what it's worth

Last year, my husband and I were TTC with no luck. The OB said that everything checked out and that it may be taking longer because my eggs are old. I was so upset, frustrated, and disappointed.

I decided to cut out grains because I thought they may be making me hold onto a few stubborn pounds that I wanted to lose... and the next month I got a BFP.

Only later did I hear Elisabeth Hasselbeck talking about how cutting out gluten helped her to conceive, and have been wondering if there was a connection for me too. I did some Googling and saw some more articles about it.

So, anyway, I thought that maybe this will help someone else out and am passing it on. Cutting out gluten, or cutting back, may help someone else out too.

    wow.  cool.  I have endometriosis and I heard that cutting it out helps that.  and since helping endo helps TTC it certainly makes sense.  I cut it out but only about a month ago.  I sure hope your right!!
