Mediterranean Diet, Fertility Foods and TTC Giveaway

Last year I began my “medicated” ttc journey in the States.  We began with IUI’s that as you may know led to BFN.  And although I was in pain I was also content because I had answers to why it wasn’t happening naturally.   One of the biggest mistake was not reading and getting information on what to do in order to have a successful IUI or IVF.  And it wasn’t until a couple of months ago that I bought the book “ItStarts With The Egg” by Rebecca Fett that I realized all the things I had to change in order to have a successful IVF.  Especially now that our first and God willing only IVF will be in a couple of months.

First thing I did was buy all the necessary vitamins I needed to begin my supplement regimen these including Prenatal, Folic Acid, CoQ10, Metformin and Vitamin D. I also began exercising, which consists of cardio for now.  I was also looking into Yoga but haven’t started anything yet.  And besides changing all of my plastic bowls to glass containers I also changed my eating habits.  I began the Mediterranean Diet.  My diet consists of lots of these foods:


And I also got this Top 10 Fertile Foods from Nat Kringoudis’ website which I’m also including in my everyday foods.

Not lets get to the real deal… My first giveaway.  Since I have read and noted all the important do’s and don’ts from the book It Starts With The Egg by Rebecca Fett I have decided to gift the book with other TTC surprises.  The giveway consists of following my Blog or commenting on any post.  The giveaway starts today Thursday, September 24, 2015 and will end on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.  I will be announcing the winner on October 1st since the time difference from the States and Europe is different.  So good luck and I hope ya’ll enjoying my blog.

Casa di Giulietta

As you all know from my last post our anniversary was last Monday.  So hubs and I decided to take a small trip to Verona which is like maybe an hour away from where we live.  Verona, Italy is famous for its history on the Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet.  

So we focused our trip on Juliet's House (Casa di Giulietta).  Here are a couple of pictures that you might have seen in the movie Letter's to Juliet but physically experienced.  By the way if you are a hopeless romantic you must watch this movie.  But without further ado please catch a glimpse of Verona through my eyes...
Entrance to the Casa di Giulietta

 Every person writes there name and partners name in these walls.

It is known that touching the right breast of the bronze statue of Juliet in the small courtyard will bring luck to all who are trying to find their true love.  (Hubs said he was going to touch it so that we can be parents lol).

I had to stand in her balcony!

Our Third Anniversary

Today marks three years since I married the love of my life.  I still remember how crazy it was.  From traveling "for vacation" to "bring all your ID cards".  It was on a sunny Friday that we went to get "information" at the court house and ended up getting married.  I still remember how everyone would lecture me on how crazy we did things and how we didn't think things through.  

But if I had to do it all over again I would do it exactly the same with no sort of difference.  I married my best friend, my soul mate the man I prayed God for.  And we've been through some really interesting ups and downs but we've fought them together.  

There is nothing in this world that I would change from my marriage but there is one thing I pray for everyday and every night.  OUR MIRACLE BABY!!!

So baby Happy 3rd Anniversary and praying for a lifetime of anniversaries with you.  

Te Amo
