Mucinex for TTC

Has anyone ever taken Mucinex when TTC? I did with pregnancy #3, and it worked. Well, it worked to get me pregnant pretty quickly. But of course I miscarried. However, I'm very hopeful that was caused by my septum which is no longer there!

I'm thinking of trying the Mucinex again. The basis for using it is that is thins your mucus, making it easier for implantation to occur.

This morning I had a terrible feeling when talking to the social worker. I was reminded of the reality of fostering: We are NOT the parents. We are caring for the children until the parent(s) are able to parent. It may lead to adoption and it may not. I love our Little Guy (our sweet baby 2 month old) with all my heart, but for now I will have to be content knowing that it's all in God's hands. I can't bear to think of losing him. But I'm just not going to even let myself go there right now. One day at a time...

Big Guy (our sweet 3 year old) has been going on overnight visits with his parents. So far all has gone well. He'll be back in their custody soon. I'm going to miss him, but God has given me the strength and peace I need. I see that they love him, and to know that they want him to still attend church with us every Sunday is such a huge blessing!!! I can't even describe how much good that has done me!!

I guess I'm feeling a little down today, thinking of how much I want to be a mom. I know I'm already a mom. I'm a foster mom to a sweet baby & 3 year old. And I'm a mom to the 4 babies that are with Jesus now. I know that. But I so long to be a mom to my children that the Lord will allow me to raise and care for and be mine and my husband's and no one else's. If that is through biological children - wonderful! If that is through adoption - wonderful! And if through both - even better!!! :)

I'm thinking of trying a new recipe to help lift my spirits. :) I've been on a Julia Child kick lately. I've only just discovered her, and I love her! I've tried 2 of her recipes so far, and they've been huge hits. First, was the chocolate almond caked that I recently blogged about. The second is an upside down apple tart (pictured below). It was DELICIOUS!!!! But prepare to be in the kitchen for a while if you're going to cook a Julia Child recipe. There are no shortcuts!

Next up is a lemon tart! I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thanks so much for all the comments I've been getting. They really brighten my day. :) I love to know that my blog is actually getting read. And even better, I love to know that you're praying for me. :) It's also wonderful to know that I'm encouraging someone.

I hope you have a wonderful, sunny day! Southern Kentucky is just beautiful today!

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

I have taken Mucinex before with no success and I was taking it either with this pregnancy or the last, I don't remember. I was taking it because I had a cold.

Just spent some time getting caught up on your blog. I've heard several people try mucinex and robitussin. Aslo Preseed has helped some others.

I think that it's incredible that you are fostering those two little ones. I sure hope that Little Guy gets to find his forever home with you. :)
