    Good morning ladies.

    Tvh, such a wonderful feeling being preggie I'm sure those uncomfy symptoms will pass soon. Must be so exciting waiting to see the beanie for the first time!!

    Normally I use the feminine wash once a week only because I read no good to use daily but I also like to have the feeling of being "deep cleansed" once a while.

    Tvh, next week can hear the heartbeats right? So looking forward. Meanwhile take good care your health.

    Xiaohuiis, Poohy, may I ask how you all on clomid the first cycle? Did you go back to gynae to scan on cd 12 to see if got egg?
    I understand it's hard not to read too much into the symptoms but still really hope it's good new awaiting for both you.

    Poohy, hugs dont bother them. Who knows maybe next time you will have more kids than them. I also very stress whenever see those couples just married only less than 3 months strike I also jaw drop so envious them and yet the invisible stress just went up.
    But my dear husband always console me tell me babies come early or late doesn't matter as long as we wait patiently they will come eventually.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Morning! I use the feminine wash everytime i shower.. But I dont't really wash very inside/thoroughly if you know what I mean. I just wash the exterior area coz of sweat and everything else.. Been doing that for years....

    Xiaohuiis, that books all about what to do to prepare during trying to concieve, example, quit smoking/drinking, some Q&A, how to do BBT, OPKs, diet - what to eat what to avoid etc. Basically everything that a lady googles during her trying to concieve journey, it's there I bought the book two months back, and have also been reading it...

    If you ladies recalled, I spent close to $100 on 5 books two months back. Another book that I got was "The Pregnant Guy" for hubby to read. It's written by a male, and is about the male's perspective when he found out his wife was pregnant. Gives hubby a good idea of what to expect - since he is a slow reader, I reckoned we should strike lucky by the time he finish the book hahaha..

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    prayinghard...i got the clomid previously when she put me on clomid to try for IUI....but i stopped going for quite a while, then now i took clomid on my own and try on own.hahaha. i didnt go for scan or gynae follow up.

    your hubby so nice hoh...yar indeed the invisible stress go up whenever see other pple pregnant....the stress also goes up as my elder one grows up....coz the gap getting bigger and bigger....

    xiaohuiis- the book actually describe what you may experience months by months throughout your pregnancy until you give birth. And then there's another book for after giving birth....as in how to take care of your child

    Somehow, I dont really pick up books (those I have are gifts or pass downs!) on pregnancy because I personally dont want to know too much. Haa! Im the odd one out. I feel nature has its way....when it comes, it comes...so long dont do anything silly during preggie or while trying to concieve . Me and hubby were also not too keen on prenatal classes for couples. Because my gf said anyway you also forget everything while in labour. Lol. But then, such classes might be good especially for daddies who can bond better with the unborn baby.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    but i also read that feminine washes, because they can alter the ph balance (even though many of them claim to be ph neutral), it will result in your vag forming a hostile environment which makes it less conducive for spermies to swim through...they will just die once they are ejaculated at the vag entrance....those spermies seem very fragile...die so easily....have to be gentle with them little creatures...

    it's best to let spermies get used to your own natural environment

    Littlehamster I can't access the page.. I have cold womb too and I think drinking DOM does help to improve the condition..

    TVH.. Do keep us updated I think sour or sweet plums will help in minimizing the queasy feeling.. All will be well with your baby
