This Kindle is the perfect choice for me. I wanted to get rid of cable yet still keep my family and daycare happy. I use Netflix and Hulu + and canceled cable. Definitely worth the investment. It hooks up to my big screen HDTV and any other HDTV in the house. I can even play the sound through my stereo! It paid for itself immediately since I had to pay my cable 1 month in advance. I don't even use my antenna for local channels since you can surf the web for those and get a better picture through your Kindle Fire HD.
I cannot remember the last time (or if) I've written an amazon review. But this one was very important and I wanted to have another honest opinion on this product out there.
First off, my cycles were very irregular and often too short. (So I can't attest to those who have long periods or regular.) I had one confirmed and other possible miscarriages within the last year and therefore had seen a fertility specialist. Though I was convinced that I was actually getting pregnant and not being able to maintain hormones until I could get a positive, my doctor thought otherwise. My problem (which I mention because you need to know what exactly was "fixed" by fertilaid) was that I am estrogen dominate, therefore decreasing my FSH hormone and potentially progesterone. She said though there was a small chance I could conceive on my own, I more than likely would not without help and she suggested artificial insemination and In Vitro. Because we don't exactly have thousands of dollars for attempting this, I sought out natural alternatives instead. I came across fertilaid and was bewildered by the differences in the 5 stars or 1 stars. Since I researched the ingredients and none of them seemed to cause any harm, I figured for myself it was worth the risk because what's the worst it could it do? Make my cycles more irregular?
I started fertilaid after I ovulated on one cycle and continued for the beginning of my next. What do you know but on day 24 of that cycle I tested slightly positive (on the wonderful Wondfo strips which are the earliest I've seen). However less than 12 hrs later the positive was fading (yes I took them every so hours... and rightly so). I called my doctor right away and went in for blood test. Sure enough my HcG level was 20.5 (20 is pregnancy minimum to maintain) and progesterone was 13 where the lowest should be 16. I was put on progesterone straight away and have been able to maintain my pregnancy so far (8 weeks).
I am convinced that what I thought was true, that I simply have not been able to maintain my progesterone in the past leading to early miscarriages. Therefore my only conclusion is that Fertilaid not only helped me get pregnant, but balanced my estrogen and progesterone long enough for a positive to be detected. Who knows? If I would have taken it longer I might not have even needed progesterone support? Though that's mearly speculation. All I can say for sure is, after 13 consecutive cycles the only month I got a positive was the one on fertilaid. I am now a believer. I even have an extra bottle for the next time we ttc.
Well we got a winner call Tris the girl on fire and Tobias edward collins i am impressed i already got the new book and can't wait to read it. Veronica keep suprising me!!!!!★★★★★★★★♥♥♥♥♥▲▲▲▲▲▲▲♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If the contents of this book cause you to cringe and become defensive, then congratulations ladies! You are humans, struggling with a sin nature like the rest of us...and should probably read this book several times with much prayer.
To the ladies who deem this book "dangerous," (haha!), obviously the first couple of chapters dealing with deception apply DIRECTLY to you:
"In one way or another, every problem we have in this world is the fruit of deception - the result of believing something that isn't true."
"...anytime we receive input that is not consistent with the Word of God, we can be sure Satan is trying to deceive and destroy us. What we may read or hear may sound right, may feel right, may seem right - but ***if it is contrary to the Word of God,*** it isn't right."
"Sadly, most people - even Christians - have unthinkingly exposed themselves to so much deception that ***they do not even realize they are being deceived.***"
So here's the point: If you whole-heartedly disagree with most everything in this book, chances are, you don't really know God's Word as well as you may **think** you do.
"One of Satan's strategies is to blind us to the lies we have bought into - to make us assume that because we *know* the Truth [or at least *think* we know], we also *believe* the Truth..."
The way we live, (our choices, our priorities, our response to pain in life), reveals if we really do *believe* the Truth. "What we believe is revealed, not by what we know, or what we *say* we believe, but by how we actually *live.*
As far as tossing out the whole book because you may disagree with her on some points, remember that she specifically states on page 47:
"Let me appeal to you not to get tripped up by a handful of particular issues where you may have genuine disagreement. I am simply presenting what I understand the Scriptures to teach. I am not the final word on any of these matters; ***Jesus and His Word are 'the Truth.'*** My objective is not for you to agree with everything I say but to motivate you to seek out the Truth as it is revealed in the Word of God and to examine and evaluate every area of your life in light of that Truth."
I think many of the negative reviewers on here completely missed that point.
Let me also just say to those who completely discredit her teaching on motherhood or married life because she is single and childless: I daresay she is FAR more educated on what the Bible says on these subjects than most of us...since this is her life work. And if we're going to say that anyone who is not married or does not have children should not teach on those subjects, then I guess we should toss out ALL of the Apostle Paul's teachings on marriage and children as well. (Ahem.)
Drink of milk only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss within the cup,
And I'll not ask for wine.
The thirst that from the soul doth rise,
Doth crave a drink divine;
But might I of Tuscan Whole milk (I Gallon, 128 fl oz) sup,
I would not change for thine.
