    I just bought mine, but they are handmade so obviously made with love . try a local craft shop or cwa store or opshop. Mine are new ones that they sell in the second hand store. They have lots of other gorgeous knitted things too. They had the most beautiful baby shawl, all hand knitted.
    I put both booties in my pillow case, I might put one in my OH, if I can sneak it in. He laughed when I told him , but he didn't stop me. I wasn't at all surprised by his reaction, it is pretty much what I expected.

    Good luck, I think there will be a shortage of yellow booties now . fingers crossed it works for us all

    Other Fertility Symbols?!

    Hi There!

    I noticed Luey's post on the yellow booties, and thought it would be interesting to ask you all out there what other things people use to help the fertility along???

    I carry a small rose quartz with me always and pick it up at least once a day and focus on being pregnant... also have a bigger one next to my bed.....

    Any other suggestions??!!!

    Whether or not it helps, its fun... and certainly passes the time whilst waiting!!!

    Smile The Yellow Bootees!!!!

    Hi every1!

    My sister-in-law was 5 months pregnant when she told me the old wives tale about the bootees, i thought it sounded crazy. Anyways she went shopping with me on my birthday and brought a pair of yellow bootees. She rubbed them on her belly and i put them underneath my pillow, (i thought why not, it might work). I asked people if they heard about this tale and many people said no, so i felt a little silly doing it, but i kept them there. Then 2 weeks later, my period was due but nothing, but i thought i'll wait those exact 5 days bcoz that was when i thought it really was due.
    I seen my sister-in-law 3 days before the other due date and told her. She insisted on buying a pregnancy test and 2 weeks form the day she had the bootees, the test came up POSITIVE!!!!! i was so excited.
    So ladies out there trying to have a baby, get a family member or a friend to buy you those bootees, rub them on their belly and put them straight under your pillow.
    So Good Luck with it, i believe that it truly does work

    Get yourself a carved African fertility doll - it might have been a coincidence but it worked first time round for us!

    Are you ready for it??? I have heaps.......

    Herbs / Flowers / Food
    * Carry a bag full of hazel nuts

    A Nestle Free Zone... What about YOU?

    Sarah you have it covered my love!

    I wear a rose quartz ring and a moonstone necklace. They reportedly have most benefit used together. I also have all of the stones that Sarah mentioned inside my yellow booties and they are under my pillow each night when I sleep. I take them to my u/s as a protective measure (call me a nut but I am going to do all I can to protect this baby in my belly now it's finally there!)

    I have also heard that a statue of Buddha is to be put on your partners bedside and a statue of Quan Yin on your bedside. This is the perfect balance of yin and yang.

    I don't know how many times I've been told not to vaccuum under the bed (by older ladies) but let me tell you, it doesn't seem to have worked for us!!!

    For many years I kept a piece of baby clothing & a bib in a cupboard as I'd read that was good luck. Once again it didn't work.

    This only relates to this thread as it's an old wives tale- unfortunately we can't do anything to make this happen- except maybe crack lots of eggs

    This afternoon I cracked an egg that had a double yolk. Not knowing if it was still OK to use, I 'googled' it and some believe it's a sign of pregnancy and fertility.

    Fingers crossed
