Out with the old.....

And in with the new......

They say a new hair style is as good as a holiday, does this have the same effect
as a new look website?

If you haven't already noticed the changes that have been made to the Official
Making Babies website, please do go have a look.

Some of you might even have noticed just under the MAIN MENU is a new feature - MB Forum. We will be launching the new forum soon. We are just busy working out the last few bugs. I will be sending out an official launch email soon with instructions on how to join.

I'm super excited about the new forum, and I trust it will be a great source of support and help for all TTCers and our PG Fairies.

We have also decided to focus on Fertility Products that have resulted in our Members having the most success in achieving pregnancy. (So you might notice some products missing from our Order Form).

Looking forward to sharing the new Making Babies with you soon.

Yours always in fertile thoughts,

Goodness me, really a month????

I was most shocked to see that my last blog entry was 7 May 2010.....

My most humble apologies. Things are rather hectic here on this side.

We are still getting RAVE reviews on the INOFOLIC product. I'm still most excited and wanting everyone to try it out. If you haven't heard of it yet, CLICK HERE!!!

The Conceive Plus lubricant has over taken the Pre~Seed. Must say having used both products before I would totally go with the Conceive Plus.

Our Making Babies Network is still growing, I do have a big surprise coming end of July, so make sure you keep checking back to find out. :)

Sending out plenty of fertile thoughts and baby dust to all TTCers!

Looking down.....

** Apologies to Family Friend Poems for the use of their poem in this entry. As I stated in my opening line, I found the poem on a parent forum and had no idea that it was licensed to a specific website. Please visit their site for more great poems. **

I want to share this story with you that I read this morning: (Thanks to a friend on the mommy forum)

Did you ever wonder how a child ended up with a specific mother?

According to Sufi mysticism, the soul of the child looks down at the world and sees every soul that resides in every woman.
When he finds the one that will be able to help him fulfill his life's purpose, he makes his choice. The relationship between the mother and child is no accident.

I hope you are busy being found at this very moment.

It's the last day for the Inofolic Double Pack promotion. If you are still interested in ordering please pop me an email: We have had such a great response to the Inofolic and I want to thank each of you for supporting Making Babies. You are awesome!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Yours in fertile thoughts,

Perfectly said.....

I've always been very passionate about "getting help". I always hate the saying "no we are going to wait a little while longer". If you are struggling to conceive you need to get help. Putting it off for another month, or another 3 months is not going to help your situation.

I just read the blog entry over at A little pregnant titled What if? She says it so perfectly. Go read it!

Female2Female Interview

I did an interview for the Female2Female blog site. Very exciting. I love paging through the site and reading fellow female bloggers articles. Be sure to check it out for yourself.

Making Babies Interview

National Infertility Awareness Week
24 April - 1 May

Although NIAW is being run in the USA, this week: 24 April - 1 May. I'm sure many of us South African woman could use the support and guidance from fellow infertiles.

I found a great link to the Resolve website that deals with 7 things you can do for NIAW. The most important one I think is that you EDUCATE yourself.

Do you need to see a specialist?

According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, you should seek the care of a specialist if you are unable to achieve pregnancy after 12 months of unprotected intercourse and the women is under the age of 35, six months if the women is more than 35 years of age. You should also seek the care of a specialist if you have had more than one miscarriage.

If you answer "YES" to any of these statements talk to your health care professional now regardless of how long you've been trying to conceive. RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association urges you and your partner to take charge of your fertility. Asking questions, educating yourself or your partner, and being your own advocate are the fastest ways to building your family.

* I have painful periods.
* I have irregular periods.
* I can not pinpoint when I ovulate.
* My partner/I have a history of STDs.
* I have an unhealthy Body Mass Index (BMI). (underweight or overweight)
* I have had more than one miscarriage.

Share your story by joining the Making Babies Network, and get in touch with other TTCers. You might be able to help another woman but simply sharing your feelings and advice.

Positive Affirmations

For those of you that don't belong to the Making Babies Network... (and you really should join).... We had a member that shared the following Positive Pregnancy Affirmations with us.

Some women use positive affirmations to help them overcome fear, to get pregnant or to simple remind themselves that pregnancy is not an illness. While affirmations are simple and easy, they are also effective for many women.

I think you can apply the same affirmations to TTC.

My body knows how to create life

I will be a good mother

From Pregnancy About:

Using positive affirmations can have a drastic effect on your world, but there are some rules you need to follow in order to get the most out of your daily affirmations.

* Are statements you make that are positive.
* Do work, It’s a law.
* You need to commit to at least 30 days before you will know for yourself.
* Must be personal.
* Must be positive to get positive results.
* Need to be stated in the present tense.
* Need to be simple.

I also need to add in here, that we have 2 Inofolic BFPs at Making Babies!!! I'm so stoked. We have also created a group on the Network called: Project Inofolic for all members who are on Inofolic at the moment to share their experience and get support from fellow TTCers.

Just another great reason to join Making Babies.

MB Update

Hey girlie girls. (and the odd guy)

I hope you are all doing fine this Friday. Sorry about the BFNs and AF's that are messing about. ((HUGS))

Did you all see my pretty representation of Inofolic in the Tabs above? Go look! For those of you that saw it as I put it up, you might have noticed 4 spelling mistakes..... hehehehe, note to self, do not engage in a conversation with your BF while trying to work..... I have fixed it up now, so take a looksie. Also if those who are already taking the Inofolic, if you girls want to add your comments to that page it would be most welcomed.

I would also like to extend a special thank you again to the ladies on the Testing Thread this week. You girls have been awesome with your support and hugs and words of encouragement. This is exactly my vision for this MB site, to have this beautiful interaction and support. THANK YOU!!!

Have an awesome weekend.


PS: Don't forget the Free Shipping Special with regards to the One Step OPK (10 Pack) ends today.

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Our MB Network is buzzing!

We have a lot of buzz going on the forum this week with regards to testing. Pee On A Stick Madness has seem to have struck, thank you to all the ladies supporting each other and being that virtual shoulder to cry on when needed. It's awesome to see you all encouraging each other.

Good luck to everyone testing over the next few days. We hope to be celebrating some BFPs soon.

We had an awesome response last week to the Rejuvenator For Women give-away. I'm sorry I did not have any more to give away.

It seems like there are some of our Making Babies men who are taking some stress from TTC, don't forget we also stock the Liberator FF for men. Talking from personal experience, this is just what is needed when the pressure is on during Ovulation time.

This end of week special is on the One Step Ovulation Predictor Kits 10 Pack - R 100.00 includes Registered Mail Shipping Fees.

Have a great Thursday.

Age: nothing but a number?

Trying to conceive (TTC) in your Thirties may prove to be more difficult than when you were younger and at your most fertile.

A study showed that:

* By age 30, 7% of couples were infertile
* By age 35, 11% of couples were infertile
* By age 40, 33% of couples were infertile
* At age 45, 87% of couples were infertile

Women are born with over a million eggs, but by the time they hit puberty just over 300 000 are left. Of this huge amount of eggs, would you believe that only about 300 will mature and be part of the ovulation process?

As we age, our reproductive capability slows down, our eggs don't mature enough to be considered healthy to sustain a healthy ovulation followed by a successful pregnancy. This is a natural decline of fertility, it can happen to any woman regardless of how well we have taken care of our bodies. Of course having bad habits such as smoking and consuming alcohol could speed up this decline in fertility.

Often in older woman who are TTC, their bodies might lack myo-inositol. Are any bells ringing yet? Myo-inositol is the main ingredient in Inofolic. It is responsible for producing healthy follicle fluid which determines the health of the egg.

Healthy egg = Healthy pregnancy

Most women who are having ovulation issues are put onto Clomid as a first line of treatment plan. How ever some times the body does not react to the Clomid as it should, i.e producing follicles and successful ovulation. This is where Inofolic can also play a role: One study showed that Inofolic will reduce clomiphene resistance significantly when started at least one month before Clomiphene treatment. Meaning that it will help your body "react" to the Clomid more successfully.


I thought it would be interesting to see the age categories of our Making Babies Members: (as I've noticed that most are in their thirties.)

Age is nothing but a number?


We have another BFP to report, but I'm just waiting for the new Fairy to come share her pics of her tests. A beautiful BFP at 10dpo.

Have a wonderful day!

Limited Special on MB

Hello again,

I forgot the most important little bit of info I wanted to share with you all this morning.

It's my 30th Birthday on Friday, and I'm feeling rather generous. So I've decided to give gifts out to the first 10 orders to the minimum value of R 200.00 that come through between now and then.

What will you be getting?

REJUVENATOR FOR WOMEN – (30 Caps) Valued at R 199.00 But yours free to the first 10 orders!

Terms and Conditions

Only Orders above the value of R 200.00 will qualify for the free gift.

Orders need to be paid for in full, before and on 9 April 2010 in order to qualify.

Exciting stuff!

YI and TTC

Good morning everyone

Now that April's Fools and Easter has been dealt with I hope there is some serious Baby Making going on. :) We already have our first beautiful BFP on the board for April, be sure to go have a look!

Our newest product INOFOLIC is really proving to be very popular amongst our TTC ladies. (And not only for PCOS). Inofolic can be used for normal fertility as well by increasing egg health and balancing hormones. Another draw card is that Inofolic can be used for weight management.

I have had a few queries over the last month or two about how Yeast Infections (YI) - Candida can affect Trying to Conceive. Yeast infections are over all pretty easy to clear up with some meds from your doctor or OTC at the chemist. The only effect a YI can have is that it can cause a “hostile” environment for the sperm to survive. It has no effect on ovulation or conception itself. So it all comes down to the environment that we are subjecting the sperm to.

A yeast infection won’t stop you from falling pregnant but it can make the process of trying to conceive a little more difficult.

Using an anti-fungal cream like Monistat or other over the counter remedies will help you get rid of the infection but you are actually interfering with the sperm's path to the uterus. The sperm will have increased difficulty going around and through the anti-fungal creams.

Bearing in mind as well, though it is uncommon, you can pass your yeast infection to your partner causing cross infection back and forth. Not solving the issue at all. You are better off trying to conceive once the yeast infection has cleared up.

How do we ensure that we have happy v-jay-jays for that all important sperm to survive in? Come on, you all knew I was going to have a solution for you...... :)


The studies show that Monogin is effective for the treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis but it also has fungistatic (stop growth) and fungicidal (kill fungus) properties and therefore can be used to treat fungal infections as well. Monogin only has a cross infection rate of 1.8% vs the 12.1% - 20% of other Medicated Anti-Fungal Creams.

Monogin is a great once off, easy to use product for the treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis.

On that note, I would like to wish you all a fabulous week. Catch you on the forum!

It's another short week for us with the Easter Weekend coming up. I hope you are all taking good care of yourselves.

I'm pleased that the Network is so busy as of late. I'm loving all the support and positive vibes that are flying around, if you haven't joined in on the discussions/blogs yet, you are missing out!

We launched the INOFOLIC product last week and have had a great response to it. The positive feed back we are getting back on the product is amazing. To quote a few members:

I've been using InoFolic for 2 cycles now and had WONDERFUL RESULTS!!! My ovaries are quite resistant due to PCOS and I don't stimulate
easily! Always struggling to get those follies! I started using
InoFolic with our previous cycle and we had 3 BIG follies!

As you know by now that i am using inofolic. I will be starting my second course in the next 2 days. I am looking forward to seeing more
results. I am still happy with it!

I'm super excited about this product and have a great feeling that we are going to be seeing a lot more positive pregnancies in the near future.

We have also launched a new sperm supplement for the guys (obviously) today on Making Babies.


Sperm-I-Prove is specific for male factor fertility issues improving sperm quality and motility. Leading Fertility Specialists in South Africa helped to develop this product.

Each bottle contains 60 tablets. It is suggested that for the first month two tablets be taken daily, where then after one tablet per day. After the first initial month, one bottle will last 2 months! It's a very affordable male supplement. :)

So as you can see there is a lot going on at Making Babies this week! Hope to see you on the forum.

Have a great week!

Friday, March 19, 2010


I'm very excited to bring you the newest product to the Making Babies range:


Inofolic contains Myo-Inositol and Folic acid for the effective treatment of PCOS and ovulation induction with no side effects!

Balanced hormonal levels are required for healthy ovulation. Inofolic assists in hormonal function at cell level.

Simply put: Inofolic helps produce healthier follicles, which in turn is going to give you a healthier/better ovulation which is followed by a healthier uterus environment due to good hormonal levels for that gorgeous fertilized egg to implant ;-)

What I love about this product is that it takes approx 8 days to have an affect on your body! That is GREAT news for any TTCer, because you know you want results and you want them as quick as possible!

For more information visit our Making Babies website :)

A bit jealous......

Do you think it's totally normal for me to still be jealous of everyone around me who are still TTC and falling pregnant? It's not that I want to be TTC right now, no not at all. But there is still that little heart ache that pops up every now and then. Thinking, that used to be me.... could be me... I still want it. But I know it has to be put of hold for at least a couple of years. Yes, my friends a couple of years. There won't be any Baby Making from me for a very long long time.

So for now I live vicariously through my on line friends. Keeping a close eye on their cycles, on their symptoms, on their temps. Bugging the hell of them to POAS!! I can watch their bellies grow, I can stare at pics of their little new born babies and ah and ooohhhh over them. It's precious, it's wonderful, it's also a little heart breaking. But mostly exciting....

Speaking about exciting, my very dear friend Megs is PREGNANT!!! It is wonderful to write out those words - Megs is PREGNANT! (ok, Charles too.... he is also part of this) BUT MEGS IS PREGNANT. Head on over to her blog and check it out.

Totally AWESOME!!

Not only were we all absolutely thrilled at the birth of Sanne, Xbox's little sweet heart.... but another amazing blogger - Dan over at All that comes with it made a totally awesome video montage of congrats from all over the world! Go check it out!!

combines a selection of natural active ingredients for prostate health.

The active ingredient in Prostavor called Beta-Sitosterol:

· Helps lower cholesterol.

· Normalizes sugar and insulin levels in (Type 2) diabetics.

· Helps prevent enlarged prostate, prostrate and colon cancer.

· Beta-Sitosterol acts as a 5-Alpha reductase and aromatase inhibitor.

For those TTC, I have heard from our supplier that this is a very popular product for men, as it helps increase the volume of semen. I guess in this case MORE is GOOD! :)

L-Arginine for better sperm!!!

Making Babies is excited to bring you a new Male Fertility Product called: L-Arginine Caps. Now you might be familiar with the word L-Arginine because it can be found in other male fertility products such as SpermAid or Staminogro.

L-Arginine Caps is from the same makers that bring you Fertipil Plus.

L-Arginine has an important role in male fertility. Not only do high levels of L-Arginine help with sperm and semen production but it also
assists with the general health and mobility of sperm cells, and is said to double sperm volume.

(The benefits of L-Arginine don't stop there, because it also improves your sex life as well by giving your partner a stronger and more intense erection
as well. *wink wink*)

L-Arginine Caps (90 Capsules) One month supply R 150.00 Inc VAT
L-Arginine Caps (90 Capsules) Three month supply R 400.00 Inc VAT

Pricing above excludes shipping fees.

Please note: As with all supplements that are being used for Male Fertility - it takes approximately 72 days for new sperm to be produced, hence why the best results from taking supplements are seen after 2 - 3 months!

If you would like to order L-Arginine Caps please pop me an email I have not as of yet put it on the official Making Babies website (on the order form) yet.
