Interesting Sidenote

**Warning: Women only post!!**
So, during Sunday school, Kevin added us to the prayer list for our trying to have a baby. And, this guy in our class says, "drink robitussin". Everyone laughs. And, he comes up to us after class and tells us he was serious and that they had gotten that from a specialist and his wife got pregnant using robitussin. Seriously? Check out what I found on the internet:

Believe it or not, but Robitussin could not only treat your cold but it could also help you conceive! The way it works is that it helps thin and loosen cervical mucus in women to create a better environment for sperm. You don’t have to use the brand Robitussin, either, but any expectorant that has guaifenesin as the active ingredient may be used. Make sure there are no other active ingredients, however, because they could make conceiving more difficult.

If you are interested in trying Robitussin to help you conceive then the recommended dosage is 200 mg or two teaspoons. This should be taken three times per day orally and is just enough to improve your cervical mucus. If you feel your mucus does not appear to be loosening up or thinning out then you may want to take the maximum dosage as recommended on the bottle. It is recommended that you drink a lot of water, too, to increase the amount of mucus produced. You should also take a glass of water with each dose of Robitussin.


Interesting right? Never would have thought it! Now, did I stop on the way home and get some robitussin? What do you think? heehee!

And on a side note it may help fight off any colds you may come in contact with at school...

I took it when I was trying to get pregnant with Olivia. I was at the point that I would have tried just about anything. :) I didn't get pregnant until I started taking my temp each morning and charting it. After that I got preggo my third month (after 2 years of trying). I am praying for y'all! It's such a stressful journey! Love you! -Amy
