"According to The Centers for Disease Control’s Assisted Reproductive Technology Report, low levels of zinc have been directly linked to miscarriage in the early stages of a pregnancy due to an inability for cells to divide properly, making maintaining the level of this important mineral essential to a healthy pregnancy."
So, as you know, I regularly have chemical pregnancies.
I have had problems with my zinc levels for a long time. I've tried different types and as of a couple days ago, I was taking an amino acid chelated zinc with copper for the past few months. I couldn't seem to get my stretch marks to heal (they are 2 years old!) And have very slow wound healing as well as my hair comes out in handfuls.
So, I had found out how to properly muscle test, which is basically getting answers from your subconscious about the status of your body, and I found out I'm taking the wrong kind of zinc as well as not taking in enough magnesium and biotin. So I went out Thursday and got me some new vitamins that my body claims to be able to absorb better. The biotin one surprised me... very interesting.
As of Thursday, I was CD16 and thinking it would be an anov cycle because of the detox I was doing. My opks were stark white.
Took my new vitamins that evening and did a second dose the next morning to immediately up my levels. I've been having problems with parasthesias in my mouth and I want it gone.
Yesterday afternoon... opk is almost positive! My body turned itself right around and blam positive opk today, CD18.
Zinc plays a HUGE role in ovulation as well as implantation.
Now that I allegedly have the right zinc, maybe I'll be able to hold on to my babies...
I'm ovulating the exact same day as my last major pregnancy... it's almost like a do-over. Maybe this time the baby will stick if we catch it.
Means another bfp on my birthday... lol
We will see!
In the meantime dear reader... check your nutrient status if you are having problems conceiving!
