Have you talked to your doctor about whether or not Mucinex is safe to take while TTC? There’s always a chance it’s not.

(As a side note, that is the only medicine that has ever helped me with my crazy sinus congestion, so I really hope it is safe – otherwise i’ll be totally miserable in pregnancy for a totally new reason!)

I think Mucinex is just an expectorant – the only active ingredient is Guaifenesin which I don’t think is harmful while TTC.

@winniewolf:  Another option is start drinking 1-2 cups of green tea every day CD1 – O.  It also really helps with EWCM and has the bonus of ridding your body of bacteria that may effect implantation.  (You can drink it after O if you want, too, but I don’t drink caffeine during the TWW, so I stop at O.)

TCOYF recommends it to increase EWCM. I’ve used it the last two cycles, and I have noticed more EWCM, although I’m still not pregnant. I don’t think there’s any harm in taking it 10+ days before O’ing, as long as you don’t exceed the daily recommended dosage. 

ETA: But I’m not a doctor. If you have any concerns about taking it so many days in a row (I do chart, and started about a week before I ovulated), call your doctor and ask.
