    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    This is interesting. I'm all in. Thanks for starting.

    Me: 40
    Him: 31 (yup we are a good 9 years apart)
    Married for : 2 years in Jan2013 ---> this one I add one can?
    T-T-Cing since: Nov 2012, averagely 30-32 days cycle
    MC : Once (lost heartbeat @ 13 weeks; D&C in Aug2012)
    Have tried: CM method, OPK, charting BBT, T-C-M powder drinks. Lift pelvis.
    Trying now: Same. Not changing anything but I might omit OPK from next cycle! No cold beverage/food.
    Going to try: Relax more.
    Next open window: 3rd & 4th week of Dec2012.
    Others: Sinseh says my hubby has healthy fertililty (especially he's much younger than me). Last pulse reading she also shares that I now have good Qi-mai so she's quite confident I can conceive soon. However, the challenge is carrying the baby to full term, since I've had MC history (I didnt go back to her when I knew I was pregnant back then). She will help me to make the baby sticky with her medicine if I do conceive.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    faithmummy, I also am curious... you're not regular in your cycles?

    littlehamster, sounds like you're in time! Keep it going.

    Actually myself and hubby we dont really eat specific food for t-t-c purpose. My sinseh told me just eat healthy and eat more fruits (because her powder potion is quite "heaty". Therefore she also discourages me to drink longan tea or heaty herbal soups). Only when I do conceive, then she will adjust the medicinal properties of her powder and advice my diet separately. Generally, I'm pretty health conscious and I dont really touch junk food much. But my other half is a junk food machine -_-. We are both quite opposite when it comes to diet.

    Since 3 of us (so far here) have MC-ed before, I have a question to ask. I chanced upon this when googling. I am just 1-2 days from my AF. I googled for possible early preg symptoms and some ladies did share that they found out they had colostrum and that was a sign for them. So I went to the toilet and attempted to squeeze (sorry TMI) and holy moly I have that too. For about a week or two after my D&C, I was leaking colostrum. That was emotionally hard to handle back then.... Anyway, now that it has been more than 3 months, I'm surprised I still have it (though I have to squeeze to extract some; not leaking on its own back then). So I want to know do you still experience it now months have past?

    By the way, as we know about internet, there are always many versions/explanations to something. Even for some girls who are not sexually active, they may also produce colostrum.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Oysters (From the What to expect iphone app): it says zinc deficiency can disrupt the menstrual cycle and slow the production of good quality eggs. Other sources in small amounts includes lean beef, poultry, dairy, nuts, eggs, whole grains, and legumes.

    Normally i only cook around 6-8 oysters (so half for him half for me) not much .. cook in omelette, sometimes baked in mayo, sometimes just boil it, if buy the breaded oysters then just oven bake it..

    think the only thing i drink cold is those fruit juices during lunch.. around 3 times per week, sometimes busy till the jucie sit there very long and not cold

    my MC is chem one but i had 1 week of bizarre drinking water and toilet visiting and extreme fatique, other than that no colostrum.. after that heavy flow then no more symptoms.. so not sure cant help you with this

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi ladies.
    Have you tried taking Evening Primerose Oil? I took it on my first cycle and got pregnant. Bought Stress Tab from Guardian for my hubby too cos he is always stress due to work. We've been trying to concieve for 6 mths and now i'm 38 weeks preg.

    I've heard that evening primrose oil helps,but not suitable for everyone. Coz it's rather "heaty". N my Chinese sinseh said before,me more of "heaty" type..that's y I dont dare to take =|

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Thanks ladies. I broke down when I saw that the result came out +ve. I went to Watson to buy another kit to test just to make sure. It's definitely a BFP.

    I broke down because I was overjoyed, yet at the same time many worries swim in my head. I guess you ladies whom have gone through MC would probably know what I mean.

    Today marks my 11 DPO. AF is supposedly to come by this weekend. I fear that I tested too early. I'm having some spotting now. It's like brownish EWCM, though not much. 2 things possibly : implantation bleeding or something I shouldnt have known.

    There have been tell tale signs ever since after I O-ed. The biggest giveaway is the nausea symptom. It was similar, though more mild, to during my first trimester back then. I've never had nausea feeling on normal cycles before.

    Yesterday and today, the cramps and nausea just gone away into thin air. I'm not sure what to think about this.

    I guess tomorrow onwards I will keep close look on my BBT and the spotting. They should be able to give me more answers.

    I thank you all for feeling happy for me. I really am too, despite all possibilities at this stage. I hope for the best and take things as they come.

    faithmummy, my sinseh is very kiasu one.... once she suspects i MIGHT get pregnant, she will dispense me the an-tai powder. Since my O-ed day on 19Nov, I have been drinking an-tai potion, just in case She said she rather not take chances.

    littlehamster, yes I will be careful and have enough rest.

    Have made appt with Dr John Tee @ Kandang Kerbau Hospital but his available slot is 10 Dec. Is that too long a wait?

    Buddy, no i think it is not late... many mummies only see gynae on 5th week i think... but i totally understand your worries, its like better to see gynae as soon as we can, depending on time slot available... meanwhile, keep thinking about happy things, be positive, and still enjoy yourself without taking unhealthy food, cold food most importantly... kick tea and coffee immediately ... stay on with your folic acid ... and please please please sleep early... dont get yourself stress up at work....

    Eh. Once is bpf it means implantation is over. Cos it will need the fertilize egg to implant then will generate the hcg. Dragontail you might wanna keep a lookout on the bleeding. Faster go see your sinsei

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Actually, I have had this kind of spotting before. Which always ends up in a mense shortly. It could be the same again, this time; and just that I found out the "truth" because I did a HPT.
    I've discussed with hubby. We are taking it easy. I'll just monitor further. Let nature takes its course if my AF comes this weekend. My usual sinseh visit is coming Wed.

    buddy, keep us updated !!!
    meanwhile, stay with very happy mood... monitor your conditions closely this few days until your wed sinseh visit.. see what she say.... some women do have spotting every now and then during first trimester.... but as long as no serious cramps or backaches, it is ok.... but still best to consult gynae...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Thanks girls, that's all I need now

    Ok the spotting has stopped as at now. The panty liner seems all clear and when I wipe, I only got a very small amount very early morn just now. I just checked the wipe and the mucus is now all clear. Will see how it goes again later today.

    Temp is still up. Going mustafa now to get the cheapies HPT strips. If AF doesn't come by Monday, I probably can heave a sigh. Nausea symptom came back. Was having hard time brushing my teeth this morning.
