Grapefruit juice for CM Works Wonders for me!

I wanted to share my experience with grapefruit juice.  I always LOVED grapefruit juice but I stopped drinking it over the years because of the carbs.  Well, when I was younger I drank it all the time and I never had a problem with getting wet and thought that because I got older was the reason I had less CM.  Or that I'm approaching the change of life (yeah, I'm 37 LOL).  

But I started drinking it again and drank about a 64oz bottle over about 4 days.  I must say, I have much more CM this month.  Yesterday on CD9 it was like egg white and actually stretched almost two inches.  I usually have very little CM and it's still not a whole lot but that's the first time it ever stretched and I'm not even near ovulation. But then again I don't know, I got a questionable positive OPK on CD5 and CD6 and no way do I ovulate that early (normally CD14).  

I don't think I'm ordering the Pre-seed this month!!

Awesome!  I'll have to try that.  I love the taste of grapefruit juice anyway, lol.  That'd be great if it helped.

Any particular brand of grapefruit juice or is it just grapefruit juice period? Ruby red regular or what??????

Actually it was just the store brand unsweetened regular.  I don't like the ruby red, it's a little too sweet for me.  Not sure if that would make a difference though.  The bad part is I didn't drink as much water as I normally would during this time, mainly the juice.  The green tea didn't seem to help so I stopped that this month.

Good luck!
