Caffeine and TTC

When I was TTC I was extra careful and cut out all artificial sweeteners, and caffeine. I was not a happy camper!! The doctor said that 200mgs of caffeine a day were ok. But I still avoided it. Occasionally when I had a bad migraine, I would take a Tylenol and have a little coke.

My TCM said that you would be better of drinking a regular coke then diet coke. She said something with the aspartime was awful for TTC. Or even have a little coffee with whole milk and real sugar. So I listened! It was SO hard...as I was addicted to Diet Coke, I would go to the McDonalds drive thru just to get a large fountain Diet Coke!

I just saw this article and thought it was interesting. The first slide that comes up is "Limit Caffeine Consumption".

9 Natural Fertility Boosters

Limit caffeine consumption
Several studies have shown reduced fertility for women who consume more than 300 mg of caffeine each day. Fortunately, the threshold is high enough that you can still indulge in that morning cup o' joe, since the average 8-ounce cup of coffee only has 100 to 130 mg of caffeine. Don't forget, though, that black tea, green tea, chocolate, and some sodas also contain caffeine.
For women undergoing in vitro fertilization, however, the threshold is much lower: A mere 50 mg of caffeine—the equivalent of one cup of tea—can negatively impact success rates.
Alice Domar, an assistant professor at the Harvard Medical School who also counsels women dealing with infertility, suggests that you may want to further restrict your caffeine intake if you've been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant, even if you're not doing IVF. Since only limited research has been done on the topic, Domar worries that further research may show that lower amounts of caffeine still impact fertility.

Acupuncture and sperm count

Acupuncture May Improve Sperm by Joel Roberts
(WebMD) Acupuncture may help some men overcome infertility problems by improving the quality of their sperm, according to a new study.

Researchers found five weeks of acupuncture treatment reduced the number of structural abnormalities in sperm and increased the overall number of normal sperm in a group of men with infertility problems.

They say the results suggest that acupuncture may complement traditional infertility treatments and help men reach their full reproductive potential.

Acupuncture May Ease Male Infertility

An estimated 10% of men are infertile, and the male partner is a factor in up to 50% of infertile couples, write the researchers. In many cases, the cause of male infertility is unknown.

Previous studies of acupuncture and male infertility have suggested that acupuncture can improve sperm production and motility (a measure of sperm movement).

In this study, researchers looked at the effects of acupuncture on the structural health of sperm in men with infertility of unknown cause. The findings appear in the July issue of Fertility and Sterility.

Twenty-eight infertile men received acupuncture treatments twice a week for five weeks, and 12 received no treatment and served as a comparison group.

Researchers analyzed sperm samples at the beginning and end of the study and found significant improvements in sperm quality in the acupuncture group compared with the other group.

Acupuncture treatment was associated with fewer structural defects in the sperm and an increase in the number of normal sperm in ejaculate.

But other sperm abnormalities, such as immature sperm or sperm death, were unaffected by acupuncture.

The researchers write that acupuncture treatment is a simple, noninvasive method that can improve sperm quality.

Vitamins and nutrients as a way to increase your fertility.

Vitamin B6 is widely known to lengthen the luteal phase.

Zinc can help improve sperm quality.

Vitamin C can also aid to improve sperm motility and quality.

A couple of studies suggest that when some men drink coffee before sex, their sperm becomes more energetic.

Some studies indicate that women with low iron reserves are less likely to conceive.

Wheat grass can help egg quality.

The omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, and herring have some big, fat fertility-boosting benefits.

Full fat dairy is rich in calcium, a nutrient that’s essential not just for bone health but also for reproductive health.m One serving a day.

Baby aspirin once a day can help increase blood flow to the uterus.

Almonds Improve fertility?

The Romans showered newlyweds with almonds as a fertility charm.

Raw almonds are an especially good source of monounsaturated fats, which appear to increase a woman’s chances of getting pregnant! They are also a great source of protein! Also try adding almond milk to your diet! Almonds also can help raise men's sperm count!

Try adding almonds to your diet! Bring along as a snack, or add to a salad or cooked vegetables!

Fertility Bracelet Success Stories!!

Hi friends! I just wanted to list some of the testimonials I've gotten from customers who have let me know that their fertility bracelet from The Fertile Garden have worked and that they are pregnant!! I dont even have words for how happy I am for them!! :)

"My bracelets worked. Found I yesterday that I'm pregnant. My sister in law, that I bought a bracelet for, had her IVF transfer too. I saw 2 heartbeats today and SIL has a beta of 267. Those are some good bracelets. Could make for an interesting Spring. Thanks!!" 

"After watching a reality show participant speak of finally getting pregnant after receiving a fertility bracelet from a family member, I decided to do some research on the matter. My search came back with a handful of companies providing such bracelets, but one that really stuck out and seemed the most heartfelt, was the Fertile Garden. I ordered a fertility bracelet with moonstone, amethyst and rose quartz crystals with butterfly accents and a turtle clasp and it was very affordable and came quickly. There was a handwritten note on a beautiful card, wishing me congratulations. That really stuck out, as you never see that with vendors today.
The bracelet was so beautiful and I put it one instantly. I had my IVF transfer the next day and even though they only transferred one egg, two weeks later, I was pregnant. By the way, I am over 40!
I rarely remove this bracelet... only to shower, but I feel down deep that this was made with magic and care and really did help me to get pregnant!" 

"Perfect! Thank you! Your bracelet worked for me in October!"
Robin G. Oviedo, Fl."

"I bought this as a gift and now my cousin is pregnant! She is constantly getting compliments on it and I will definitely buy from Fertile Garden again!" 

"I'm sorry it took so long to respond but I wanted to wait this long for a reason- I will be 12 weeks pregnant tomorrow! I don't know if it was the necklace or the clomid/ovidrel shot combination or both but I am pregnant and that's all that matters! I have not taken it off since I got it and I am so thankful to have it! Thank you so much for being part of this amazing time in my life!"

"Hi there,
My friend recently bought me one of your bracelets, the butterfly one. My husband and I had been trying for about 6 months with no success, and she knew I was getting down about it. The beautiful bracelet arrived after I had ovulated, but about the time the egg probably would have implanted. And guess what? I'm happy to announce I am now pregnant! I truly believe that the caring, happy feeling I got from her sweet gesture created an egg-friendly womb. I plan to wear it every day throughout my pregnancy. I just wanted to say thank you, even though I don't know you, and let you know my happy story. :)"

"Not only did my friend love the bracelet, she found out she was pregnant just a few weeks after I bought it for her! Good luck indeed. :o)"

"I completely subscribe to the power of gemstones and crystals, especially after receiving this item. I bought this as a Christmas gift for a friend who had been struggling to conceive. The gift sat in the cute little box it came in for two weeks on my dining room table before I traveled to visit this friend for the holidays. It was during the holidays that not only did my friend successfully conceive (she found out a few weeks later), but I also found out I was three weeks pregnant! We had been trying to conceive as well but with low hopes due to my husband's fertility issues. I believe the presence and intentions of this item in my home definitely assisted us! As a final note, the item arrived very quickly, was made beautifully, and was customized to not include any spare charms. This seller is wonderful. Highly recommend!"

"I wanted to write to let you know that your bracelets bring blessings! To be honest, I was a skeptic. I bought the bracelets because I love crystals/gemstones and I figure, what the heck, I probably would have to wear it for a year or so. We were taking a break from fertility treatments and decided to just let it all go.

I bought 2 bracelets in the Fall last year, one for me, one for my good friend who is already pregnant but was really nervous due to all kinds of complications. By January, I was pregnant (100% natural, organic baby!) and my friend just delivered a healthy baby girl. I had no idea the bracelets are so potent! Thank you again and I will tell my friends about Fertile Garden. I have now given my bracelet to a dear friend who is going through fertility treatments, and will consider buying more as gifts.

"Thank you so much for the beautiful work you do. I received my beautiful bracelet in the mail and wore it everyday. Well Im so excited to share with you that Im pregnant!! I sincerely believe that the bracelet I purchased from you helped with my success. I will recommend Fertile Garden to anyone TTC. Thank you!

"Hi! I bought this bracelet 2 months ago and I just found out I'm 4 1/2 weeks pregnant. I was just about to try clomid this month with IUI. I was not excited about taking drugs....so I was thrilled to find out I was pg on my own after 15 months of trying! (We also did 2 iui's with no success) Thanks so much!

"Hello! I just had to come and share my excitement with you. I am now almost 14 weeks pregnant and have been wearing your fertility bracelet since February. I became pregnant the very next month and have had an easy pregnancy without any complications. I didn't even get the terrible morning sickness, lol!! We have seen our baby 3 times since becoming pregnant and heard the heart beat and he/she is doing perfectly.

"The last bracelet I ordered worked, my sister just gave birth to little Aiden two weeks ago. Thank you so much! :) 
I have referred several people to you because I love and believe in your jewelry! - Alexis"

"This is the second bracelet I have purchased from you :) The first helped one of my best friend conceive twins!"

"My friend that I bought this for got pregnant shortly after I gave this to her. She had been trying for 5 years doing artificial insemination and had 1 miscarriage. She decided to put it in Gods hands and with prayers, faith, and positive thinking she became pregnant and just reached her 12 week mark. This bracelet made her very happy when I gave it to her, thank you."

"Just wanted to share my wonderful news that I am expecting a new bundle of joy on May 30, 2012! I don't know if your bracelets and necklace helped in my journey to motherhood but I have not taken them off since. Thank you so very much :) -Andrea"

"LOVE it! I purchased this for a friend of mine and she is now 12 weeks pregnant!! Thank you for all your wonderful efforts, the bracelet was not only beautiful but the gift wrapping was so nice too! She is so happy!"

"I just have to say that my husband and I were trying for 3 mths or so ... I got the bracelet in the mail, that day my ovulation test came up positive. I recv'd the bracelet beginning of October, I found out I was pregnant yesterday, October 23rd. So I really feel this helped! Out of all the days I've been counting and trying to figure out the right day I was ovulating, I forget about it, I get the bracelet in the mail and I'm pregnant a few weeks later!!!! I truly believe the bracelet had alot to do with it!"

"...thanks again - i just found out last week that we're expecting :) :) :)"

"Hello! I ordered a fertility bracelet this summer after several months of trying to conceive. I just wanted you to know that I am currently surfing around etsy looking for baby booties for a photo announcing our pregnancy! We are only 8 weeks along and praying everyday but I definitely believe that bracelet has something to do with it. Thank you for making such a beautiful and inspiring product! - Jamie"

"We're almost 16 weeks along with a healthy baby! Thanks again for everything!"

"Just two months after purchasing the organic fertility bracelet, I found out I was expecting after several unsuccessful months! The bracelet is beautiful and very sturdy. I couldn't be more pleased with such an inspirational and beautiful piece of jewelry. And I definitely think it works!!!!"

"I think your jewelry is just beautiful! It works too...I purchased a fertility bracelet from you before and after wearing it everyday for a month, I became pregnant with my precious daughter. I had previously had three miscarriages in a row and I truly believe your necklace helped me! Hoping to try for one more child and I will be wearing one of these lovely necklaces everyday! " 

Hello, I purchased several items from you over the summer. I wanted to share that I'm almost five months pregnant. We're having a boy, and he is growing healthy and perfect! Happy holidays, Bethany 

Having my bracelet, St Gerard pendant, and fertility energy notecards gave me hope and peace that a healthy pregnancy was something that would happen for us. They gave me something positive to focus my attention on, rather than being stuck in a black hole of grief and fear. And I know they helped contribute to me feeling healthier and more optimistic, which is always good for Baby!! 

"I just wanted to let you know that my friend whom I purchased this bracelet for gave birth on Christmas Day to a beautiful baby girl! "

"I ordered your beautiful bracelet in November and have worn it every day since receiving it. When sleeping I kept it on my nightstand for safe keeping and put it on the next day after taking a shower. Our fertility journey has not been the easiest one, but last Tuesday I found out that we are expecting!!"

"Love this necklace! Amazing seller to deal with! Thank you so much! AND it worked :) 
I have recommended you to so many people!!! Your making such a difference in many peoples lives so thank you."

"i bought a piece of jewelry from you for my sister in-in-law two years ago (she was successful!)"

"Thank you so much. I have to say I your products are little miracle workers. I received the St.Gerard pendant from my sisters (in laws) in December and found out in January that we're expecting! Truly amazing. I will definitely share my story publicly and have been telling everyone I know about the fertile garden shop on etsy! :)"

"Hello! I just wanted to say that when I bought my bracelet, I was pretty skeptical, but gave it a try anyway...what do you know? Three weeks later, and I have a positive pregnancy test! So, thank you for your help! :)"

"Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I purchased one of your fertility bracelets back in January and after 2 years of trying I just found out last Friday that I am pregnant!!!! I will be 6 weeks tomorrow!!!!!!!! My husband and I could not be happier!!!!!!!! :)"

"I would really like to leave feedback on your shop about how great you were, and that we are PREGNANT after trying for a year, I am not sure how so at least this way you will know. we had gotten the goddess necklace as well as the tiger bracelet for my husband. Thank you so much our orther two kids are over the moon as well as us, thank you:) "

"A friend gave me one of your bracelets just after my IVF embryo transfer and I'm now 6 weeks and 2 days pregnant :) I only take it off when I take a shower.I want to pass on the good luck. Thanks! "

"Just wanted you to know....my friends first cycle wearing the bracelet (that she loves by the way)....She is PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First ever positive pregnancy test after 5 years of treatments :D"

"SOOOOOOO...it's been a year and finally this past weekend i got two positive pregnancy tests!!!!!!...i am going for bloodwork today...i honestly believe the combination of my bracelet, necklace, meditation stone, and the smudging had everything to do with our second child's existance...this was my first cycle using the tools that i purchased through your etsy store and they WORKED...thank you sooo much...you really are making such an impact on woman's lives across the world...it's amazing...i will never forget you and what you have done for our family <3 span="">

"I bought one of these a year ago, and I'm sitting here with my newborn twin boys! I am now buying one for my good friend who is going through fertility treatments. Thank you for your help!"

"I'm so excited to get my bracelet as a friend got one a few weeks ago and she got her first ever BFP after 5 years of trying."

"I ordered a bracelet from you for a friend a few months ago and she was able to conceive 2 months later!!! "

"Hi! Just wanted to let you know that my daughter is pregnant!! After 1 year, and spending over $10,000 with an Infertility Doctor, she went the holistic route. Gluten-free organic diet, acupuncture, massage therapy and YOUR jewelry!! Got pregnant is 3 months!! THANK YOU!!!"

"I forgot to write you back to let you know I conceived a month after getting my bracelet! We are expecting a perfect baby boy in july!! I really feel the bracelet helped! It usually takes us years to get pregnant! Thank you!!"

"I just wanted to let you know that 11 months ago I bought a necklace and bracelet from you and now I'm expecting our little girl in 3 weeks! I still wear the bird necklace everyday. Thank you!"

"I bought a fertility bracelet for my friend who had been ttc for a year. It was a Christmas gift. You said you would send her extra baby dust. She loved it!!!! Didn't wear it right away but started in January and wore it for a full month. She got her bfp right after valentines day!!! Due in November and couldn't be happier!!! She wanted me to get in touch with you and thank you from the bottom of her heart!!! Not only did she get a beautiful bracelet but it really worked!!!
Thank you so very much and keep up the good work! Thanks, Cheryl"

"Just wanted to let you know the bracelet/necklace worked....after 9 years of marriage and no pregnancies, I am now 13 wks pregnant and couldn't be more excited. Thanks for any part you played in this - so appreciative!!"

"This was beautifully done, and my friend loved it! And guess what, now she's pregnant!!!!"

"After TTC unsuccessfully for 10 months, I went to the doctor to start testing for infertility. One of the things he suggested was wearing a Kokopelli. I was pretty skeptical, but at this point I thought it couldn't hurt so I found this one that I LOVED and ordered it the next day 5/15/12. I just found out I'm pregnant with baby #2 last Friday 6/8/12. I still can't believe it! Who knows, it may have been the HSG, the soy isoflavones, the Kokopelli, or this may just be the little person that God had planned to be here all along. But I really think the necklace had something to do with it. If nothing else it was a reminder not to worry and to stay positive. Thank you so much!"

"I ordered a bracelet a while back and was going to wait to leave etsy feedback until we conceived but I goofed that! Even though I don't wear the bracelet it is still at my bedside. I believe your loving item helped us to conceive our little valentines baby. We are due November 2nd :-)"

"You made a fertility bracelet for my niece. Well.... drum roll.....she is expecting twins!"

"Thank you! My sister bought me one of these bracelets in January, I found out Feb 7th that I was pregnant! A friend of mine is going through similar troubles so I thought she might like one as well! :) "

"Just had to tell you that about 3 weeks ago I found out I was pregnant :)"

"I bought a bracelet for my best friend who had been trying for over a year to get pregnant. They were able to get pregnant after the first time with the bracelet. She is now eight weeks along. Thank you so much for the bracelet it made their dreams come true!!!"

"Hi there I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for my bracelets and my St. Gerard necklace. I wore them every day and said the prayer every single day. I am happy to let you know that our second IVF cycle (which I bought these items in preparation for) was successful. We are currently expecting a bundle of joy Feb. 19th 2013 and we couldn't be happier. Your bracelets truly do work! Thank you, Janine"

"I just wanted to send a note to say Thank you for my beautiful bracelet and necklace that I bought on the 17th June 2012. We recently did a pregnancy test and after a year of trying for a baby we have found out we are 4 weeks pregnant. It's early days but I've worn and will continue to wear my bracelet and necklace through my pregnancy. My husband and I are so happy. Your jewelry means so much to me and helps me to stay positive.
Thank you Laura xoxo"

"I bought two fertility bracelets from you around April-May area. One for me, one for my best friend. After wearing them only one cycle, we both got pregnant! We're both entering into our second trimester soon, and I really just wanted to say thank you for such a marvelous product. I'm definitely keeping mine for when it's time to expand the family once again.
Thank you, Keshia"

"I ordered the bracelet after suffering from a miscarriage and being unsuccessful in falling pregnant again. Within a few days of placing the order I ovulated and fell pregnant straight away. I don't know whether it was the positivity and hope I regained from wearing the bracelet or not but either way it was my lucky month! I'm now 11 weeks pregnant and still wear the bracelet. Kind touches added to the packaging would certainly recommend to anyone who has lost hope! Thank you :) "

"Found out I was 6 weeks pregnant August 30, 2011 and I just gave birth to our beautiful baby girl named Addison on April 21st, 2012!!!! =) "

"I just wanted to share my success story with others. I had been trying to conceive for 3 years, endured 2 miscarriages and undergone 7 IVF cycles when a friend mentioned to me the benefits of gemstones and their healing/fertility abilities. I found the Fertile Gardens website and immediately fell in love with their bracelets. I ordered one and it arrived a week later, i live in Australia and was amazed at how quick it turned up, i fell in love with the bracelet the moment i seen it. I was a few days from starting my 8th IVF cycle and put the bracelet on, i was naughty and only took it off to shower and go swimming but did sleep with it on, two weeks later we had our Transfer and then 10 days later i got the most amazing news that we were pregnant. I am now 33 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby and still wear my bracelet; i honestly believe it was this bracelet that helped us achieve our pregnancy after so much heartache. I have recommended two other friends to buy these bracelets and both have long histories of infertility and IVF and both are now pregnant as well. Thank you so much!!!!!"

"I got this bracelet when I was TTC- my now 9 mo daughter after 2 previous miscarriages." 

"I don't know where I can put a review of what I bought. So I just want to tell you that I ordered the bracelets in December. I found out on 2/17/12 I was 4 weeks pregnant. Today I am 35 weeks pregnant w/ a baby boy. Thanks!!"

"I had to email you to let you know that 1 month after I gave a necklace to each of my 2 girls friends -- they became pregnant. They are both due in Feb 2013. They had been trying for over a year+ to get pregnant and even each had suffered a miscarriage. Its too much of a coincidence that your necklaces were given to them and they both became immediately pregnant. Thanks for your wonderful necklaces!"

"I had to share with you that the last bracelet I bought from you totally worked! I sent it to a friend and she was pregnant a month later (after 1.5 years of trying!) Thank you so much!!"

"I bought this necklace for a friend who was going through fertility issues... She absolutely loved it and the best part is, it worked!!!! After almost 3 years of trying to conceive and back and forth to the fertility clinic she is now pregnant WITH TWINS!!! Thank you so much for this beautiful necklace! "

I loved the bracelet so much and want to get one for my cousin who has been trying to conceive via IVF for sometime now. I wore mine during my IVF cycle and Im now 6months pregnant. The bracelet inspired me not to give up hope so just want to pass some Good Luck on to her!!!!"

"I'm not sure if you remember me, but I purchased a bracelet from you in 2011 and one for my friend after that. We both have very healthy babies and both got pregnant shortly after wearing your bracelets!"

" I bought one of these a few months ago for a friend who was struggling with pregnancy and she is now 3 months pregnant! Perhaps the bracelet worked :) Sending this one to a cousin who is also having a hard time."

"I just wanted to Thank You for this wonderful bracelet! I ordered it 3 weeks ago and just found out that I'm expecting ;))))) I still can't believe it! You're a part of this miracle and I just wanted to let you that. Have a great weekend."

"oh dear. i am just getting back to etsy now that my baby is no longer a newborn. can i still leave you feedback? the necklace was beautiful, and my doula loved it :)"

"Hi! I bought 2 bracelets from you in June and July for my husband and I. I'm pleased to let you know that we are now 7 months pregnant. I can't say it was all because of your bracelets, but they definitely gave us that extra boost of luck! Thank you once again :)"

"I just realized I didn't message you about having our healthy, beautiful baby girl Hadlynn (Haddie) on November 30th!...thank you so much again for everything...I truly believe your bracelet made her possible" 

"Wanted to let you know I ordered my bracelet in September and got my BFP in the beginning of December.....Thank you!"

"I bought one for my friend, the chain with the butterfly on it ... and it worked for her. So thank you for that. She's so happy and loved her bracelet."

"Thank you so much for the bracelet. The friend I gave the bracelet to has been trying to get pregnant for over 2 years. I gave her the bracelet for Christmas. She is due in September!!!"

"I am so happy to share that after the heartbreak of a miscarriage and struggling for over a year to conceive I am pregnant the first cycle after receiving my bracelet! I shared the link to your etsy shop with a couple of trying to conceive forums that I am a part of and I know that many of the ladies have also ordered bracelets (so you've probably had a lot of Canadian orders lately!) and many of us have had success already. I am very happy with my bracelet, the customizations I requested are perfect. I will wear it every day until my baby is born and likely continue to wear it even after that. It brings me an amazing sense of positivity when I wear it that I share my experience with everyone I know who is trying to conceive. Thank you so much! I am so glad I found your site :)"

"I know this may seem a little delayed...But we just got back from our 19 week ultrasound. :) We're having a beautiful, healthy little girl. Thank-you so much for all the love and hard work you put into your pieces, it was greatly appreciated. I wore it every day that we were trying. Thanks again!"

"Hi! I and my sister in law are both now preggers!"

"I have ordered from you before and we were blessed with a healthy baby girl."

"Well I am 29 weeks pregnant with a girl. We are so excited."

"My friend that I ordered this bracelet for had twin boys the end of January!!! She wore the bracelet everyday and loved it!!! We both believed this bracelet gave her hope and helped her get pregnant!! Thank you!!"

"I'm back! One of my girlfriends I gifted this bracelet to just found out she's pregnant! I'm convinced :) I've got another friend who has been struggling as well so better order another... Thanks for your beautiful work!"

"Hi, This is my second bracelet, hoping for a second child! The first one worked, and I have a beautiful baby boy! Thank you!"

"Thank you!! Baby boy # 2 is due August 10. :)"

"I love your jewelry and I bought my necklace after a miscarriage, and now we have a beautiful baby girl! I am buying this necklace because we would like to try for another baby and I am petrified! Your bracelet helped so much for my daughter, so I thought...new baby new jewelry!!"

"Do you still make this bracelet it worked for my girlfriend and now my sister in law is in need of one! I love the design and colors on this one!"

"Hi, Just wanted to let you know that I'm pregnant and due next week! I wore my brackets throughout my IVF treatments. They gave me strength when I felt like everything was out of my control. Thanks so much"

"You've got a customer for life as long as your beautiful bracelets keep working! I'm 2 for 2 on gifts for friends who've struggled with infertility, hoping for #3. Thank you so much!!"

"Good evening! My friend purchased a rose quartz necklace for me from your shop, as my husband and I had been trying to conceive for several months. I received the gift in April and became pregnant in June :)))"

"Thank you! I became pregnant the month I purchased the first fertility bracelet! I am now 33 weeks on bed rest. I purchased this bracelet for protection and stress relief...hoping for positive results!"

"Thank you so much for the beautiful bracelet. I received it very quick considering I live in the UK. As it turns out I am now 4 weeks pregnant with my third pregnancy (2 MC's) hopefully third time lucky and I will continue to wear it for all the positivity and happiness it brings me. Thank you ever so much. The baby dust worked:) xxx"

"SHE'S PREGNANT!!!!!! She knows it was the bracelet!! She was trying for 2 years!!! THANK YOU!!!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!"

"I wanted to tell you I ordered one of your necklaces for my sister who has been trying to have a baby for 3.5 years and 3 failed inseminations. She is due with her first baby on Sunday and has been wearing your necklace ever since I gave it to her. So THANK YOU so much!"

"For the rest of my life I will never be able to thank you enough! My dear friend lost her newborn son over 2 years ago and had a miscarriage shortly afterwards. She has been struggling to get pregnant again for 2 years and a month after she started wearing this bracelet I got her from you SHE IS PREGNANT!!!!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!!"

"My friend got me a bracelet from your shop when I was going through IVF and I now have a 10 month old daughter. This is the second bracelet that I have purchased for friends.

" I have been looking for the perfect mother's necklace and I can't wait to get this...not sure if you remember me but my daughter (Haddie) just turned 9 months old!...you had helped us to get pregnant with her...without your gemstones I truly believe we won't have been blessed with our beautiful baby girl <3 span="" thanks="">

"I bought one of your bracelets and St. Gerard necklace early this year and am happy to share the news that a baby is due this coming December! I am glad to have purchased your products as they somehow helped keep the faith. More power to you and thanks again."

"I purchased a fertility bracelet from you (for myself) in 2011 and within three months, got pregnant and have a beautiful 15 month old daughter!"

"Thank you for the bracelet, it is beautiful and my sister loved it. She went through her IVF cycle 9 months later and is due this December with her first baby."

"First one worked, I am a mom to a 1 year boy. Hoping to expand my family."

"I wanted to mention by the way, that your bracelet I had purchased in July worked its magic: I am now pregnant :) "

"I wanted you to know I wear my bracelet daily and love it! I am 5w2d pregnant with confirmed rising beta numbers and a solidish number, too! I am praying and hoping for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Thank you for your help!"

"This beautiful bracelet helped me conceive my rainbow baby!!!"

"I purchased a necklace to wear during my wedding & figured it wouldn't hurt to see if it really did help out in fertility. Me & my now husband have been trying to conceive since the end of summer with no luck. The first day I wore my necklace was on my wedding day at the end of October & a month later I get the good news that we're finally pregnant!! I was losing hope but I really do believe the fertility necklace changed my luck around. Thank you ever so much!"

"Hi there. I ordered a bracelet from you for myself a few years ago and am ordering this one for a friend. As I went to order this, I realized that I never responded to you. You were so kind to rush a clasp to me in my pure panic as I wanted to be sure that I had my bracelet when we traveled to a clinic in Colorado (from Indiana) for our final IVF attempt. I am happy to report that we have a beautiful one year old little girl. After years of surgeries and failed IVF attempts, I am certain that a new clinic, natural supplements, acupuncture and of course your beautiful and healing bracelet made all the difference in the world for us!!!"

"I wanted to say thank you for the beautiful bracelet. I ordered mine in August of last year and found out I was pregnant 2 months later. I am currently 32 weeks pregnant with a little girl due July 4. Thank you once again "

"Not only is this necklace pretty, but it works. We had tried for over 2 years, and were in the testing phase at a Fertility Specialist when I decided to order this jewelry. I was to begin IUI and was just waiting for my next period... which never came! I tested positive for pregnancy! Thank you so much for this amazing jewelry. Whether it was the necklace that turned our luck around or not, it certainly didn't hurt. (Ladies - google baking soda finger. I think it was BSF plus this necklace that did it for us. :-) "

"Thanks - btw - we conceived over Christmas ;)"

"Thank you for this bracelet. I bought it for my friend who was having fertility problems and two months after given it to her she became pregnant! She now has a beautiful baby girl :)"

"Hi, Hope you are doing good. I love the bracelet you send me and I have tell you I am almost 5 months pregnant. I wear it everyday and cant keep it off my wrist. Magic worked! Thank you. May god bless you for your good deeds and work. - Ash"

"This is my second purchase from you. I bought a fertility necklace from you for myself last year. I am now pregnant with my first and due in July!! I am buying this bracelet for my cousin, who has been trying to conceive for about a year and half."

"The day I ordered this I was so excited to get it so that hopefully it would help us conceive! The day I got the email it shipped I found out I was pregnant, after five years of trying it finally happened! I owe it all to the fertility garden, even though I didn't have the necklace in my possession I feel like it helped, somehow. I'm hoping this necklace helps me have a smooth pregnancy! Thank you so much fertility garden!!! "

"Thank you for this. It reminds me every day to be thankful. I am finally pregnant after a very long road. I appreciate the inspiration from this."

"I love my bracelet! I recieved it just before my FET and had it ready, and wore it the day of my FET and every day since.....and I'm VERY happy to say, I'm 6 weeks pregnant! All BTs are coming back nice and strong and things are looking great! I think I might have to purchase a necklace to I can wear it throughout the pregnancy! I'm one very happy customer!!! :)"

"Just thought I would update you that just about a year after this purchase I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! :)"

"The shop is amazing and the jewelry is beyond beautiful in person. I always get some many compliments on my bracelet. I'm extremely happy with my purchase! I love the personalized service I got and the bracelet arrived quickly. I'm happy to say after over a year of trying to get pregnant only one month of wearing my bracelet I'm pregnant with my first. My husband and I are over the moon with joy. Thank you so much The Fertility Garden."

"Hi! I can't figure out how to post a Review in any other way but wanted to contact you and give some feedback. I bought a butterfly bracelet and elephant necklace for myself and a jade bracelet for a friend in December of 2013. I had been undergoing some specialized IVF treatments but had no success. My third transfer was in January of 2014, I wore my jewelry religiously and added acupuncture to my fertility regimen. BOOM! Pregnant! Now 17 and a half weeks along:)
My friend was also undergoing IVF and had been for a few years. She got pregnant twice but miscarried around 5 weeks both times, devastating. This was the final cycle that insurance would pay for. Her procedure was in March. She added wearing her bracelet, 1mg folic acid and acupuncture to her regimen. BOOM! Pregnant! She is now 11 weeks along:) 
I continue to wear my jewelry daily and my husband kind of pokes fun, "Babe, you're pregnant. We know you're fertile" but why mess with success?!
I have gotten a few compliments (and people have no idea that it is jewelry with a purpose). I would recommend your jewelry to anyone trying to get pregnant amd would gladly be a repeat customer. Thank you!!"

"Needless to say my friend became pregnant very soon after the gift!"

"The crazy thing is, I am now 14 weeks pregnant. I conceived in March!!!"

"This is the 2nd time I've purchased this, both times as gifts. Both recipients have loved them!! The 1st was pregnant a short 6 weeks later and the latter just received hers, so here's hoping for good news soon! The Fertile Garden has always been a joy to work with and very speedy!"

"This is my 3rd item that I bought to bless my pregnancy, cos I was pregnant within 2 months after receiving my first 2 items!!! So, all mums-to-be, be hopeful and all good things will eventually come."

"Pregnant! I just wanted to let you know i found yesterday i was. :) it is only a few weeks along and i pray that everything goes smoothly, but this is the first time in my life. I have kept your bracelet on since the moment i got it. I feel like the good vibes and baby dust from the bracelet played a huge part. So i wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. you create miracles with your jewelry and im forever grateful. Many blessings to you. :)"

"Hello! I ordered a St Gerard necklace from you almost two years ago and I just wanted to share this picture of my baby. My friends and family referred to the baby as 'Gerard' until we knew what the sex was :) "

"Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I received one of your fertility bracelets on Monday, June 10th. I began to feel pregnancy symptoms the Saturday after and I just confirmed that I am one month pregnant! Thank you so much for the beautiful bracelet. I received so many comments on it. The only time I take it off is to sleep and shower ;).
Thank you!

":) just got ur message to my phone. Of course!! it helped me w my first born. He's a happy healthy two year old. And now I'm pregnant w my second son due Dec. I lost my first necklace and I feel naked without it! Hehe. "

"Just wanted to say thank you so much! I love my bracelet and I've been wearing it every day since I got it. I'm also happy to say that I'm pregnant after trying for 4 years!! Thank you so much for making products that put us in a positive place :)"

"Thank you! I purchased your necklace a few months ago for my friend and I, and since then, have received many compliments.

"I wanted to let you know now only has the bracelet lasted over a year with constant wear but it has also outlasted my infertility.. I am happy to announce that my husband and I are expecting.. The bracelet is so beautiful and I will keep it always. 
Thank you so much for this beautiful gift!! Breanne"

"This is going to my best friend in California. Another one of our friends bought me this exact bracelet and I was blessed with twins via IVF."

"Elegant with beautiful gemstones, easy to clasp, and I am happily in my second trimester with my baby girl! I also got the rose quartz earrings which I love!!"

"As a sidenote, one of your fertility bracelets with an elephant charm was my first ever etsy purchase. I wore it religiously during both of my ivfs and for a total of 6 embryo transfers. Transfer number 5 got me my beautiful twins!!! I wore it nonstop this past summer for transfer 6, but no luck that time around. Maybe it's time for a change? =) xoxo, Amanda"

"You helped another friend of mine get pregnant...here's hoping for another!! :-) :-)"

“Not only did I have two kids, after years of struggling, my girlfriends had kids when they had issues. All of us either wore your necklaces or bracelets!!! My cousin is struggling now, so if you could add extra baby dust I would appreciate it  :)"

"I got this as a gift of a friend going through her 2nd round of IVF and she is currently pregnant! Thank you!"

"Just some feedback I wore my braclet through my last ivf cycle and I now have a daughter! My friend did the same & now has twins! We had both done many IVF cycles before this  Thank you xox"

"Hi I would like to place an order on a bracelet it's for a gift this time I purchased from you before and I'm now happy to say that I'm expecting (: "

"I bought bracelet for sis the pcos one and she is now prego thanks to you !!! You are an angel and I wanted to thank you! Also is it ok if I wear it now? I'm now trying:)"

"Thank you!!!! The first bracelet I ordered worked for my niece. She had been trying for 3 years, after wearing the bracelet for 1 month, she is now pregnant!! Next one is for my other niece:)"

"Just wanted to say thank you again! The friend I bought the necklace for just got her positive test after two and a half years of trying, seven failed IUIs and three failed IVFs. She finally gave up. I sent her the necklace hoping to help her not give up hope. She conceived a few days later. No one can believe it! Thank you so much - I don't know if it was the necklace or fate, but it was a crazy coincidence regardless!"

" I had such great success with my bracelet from you (my little miracle is 17 months old now) that I wanted to send her one that has the right combination of stones for her circumstances but I'm having a hard time choosing.

I wore your bracelet the whole time I was going through fertility treatments and through my entire pregnancy. It was my lucky charm and I cannot thank you enough. Wanted to share this with you ;)"

"Hello! I bought one of these elephant & jade fertility necklaces for myself when I was trying to conceive, and wore it throughout my pregnancy. My daughter is now almost 14 months old! Thank you so much. I plan to treasure this necklace forever."
