Conception & fertility problems

I understand how many of you are feeling having had secondary unexplained infertiltiy for years. My son is 9 years old now and I've had so many low years trying to conceive a sibling for him. We had tried almost everything and were saving up for IVF.
Then, one of my closest friends gave me an unusual present for my birthday in March this year... a pair of worn baby bootee's and a packet of flower seeds! She told me to place the seeds in the bootee's and put them under my bed - apparently this is an old wives tale which can aid conception. I'm not sure if it's a huge coincidence (probably, but you never know!!!) but we fell pregnant in April this year. The bootee's are still under my bed and I'm not moving them until our newborn arrives!!
Sending lots of luck to all of you,

That's a lovely story,whether there's anything in it or not.

Wow I love this. Even if it is just an old wives tale what a wonderful story you have to tell your child!
Congratulations on the bump

Of course there is nothing in it, except that it helped you to feel positive. But it is a lovely way to feel a little more control over the conception process. Oh, crikey,when did making love turn into a 'conception process'?
