There are some really silly and funny Old Wives' Tales out there about fertility and pregnancy! I found these particular tales delightfully dumb...
The Old Wives had quite a bit to say about nutrition and baby makin'.
- Raw eggs, hot sauce and grapefruit juice should all be added to your diet to help you make a baby. Sounds sexy right?
- Herbal remedies are thought to be linked to fertility, including the stinging nettle, false unicorn root, raspberry leaf and a Chinese plant called dong quai. Stinging? Unicorn? What is going on here? Are we trying to make a baby or a Liger?
When you make whoopie, visit "Funky Town", do the horizontal mamba, knocking boots, playing poker, business time...you get the picture.
- Never think of pointy things during intercourse.
- Make sure the moon is full – and it's more effective if it's a full moon surrounded by a “ring of fire.”
*Laughter is the best medicine right? Why not laugh at my infertility?! I do not mean to offend with any of these posts, it is just a way to let go a little and see the humor in our situation. Please laugh with me!
