    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Dragontail - bring the house down!!! Hee hee.

    Hello ebichan! Welcome! Me turning 35 this year . I guess just as long as we are doing your best, the rest is up to god / Buddha / fate. Nature always gives us what we need, but not necessarily what we want at the time we want. So some methods used by us included bbt, opk, traditional chinese medicine, CW, recommended vits and food intake, gynae visits etc. my gynae's no no included no heavy exercises (nothing that will jiggle or stretch the insides) and no bd during 2ww.

    Hi heartz - goody luck!

    So fast mid march already. First quarter of the year already gone. I dont't know if it is me but I find as I grow older time seems to pass much faster. I mean, sometimes I can't believe 2012 is over?!??

    Hi Thelay. I would say strictly no shoulder massage during pregnancy. Not even those massage chair for back. My mother in law even told me dont let people touch my shoulder when i had bfp. I guess that includes neck? Why are you having those aches now thelay?

    Morning everyone

    Dragontail - have a fulfilling Sunday

    Thelay - think cannot go for massage . Try doing some stretching exercises like head / neck rotation and arms rotation? Those may help to alleviate. If you're thinking of using plasters, make sure they are also safe for pregnancy. The plasters I have indicated "not suitable for pregnancy".

    Thelay: Maybe you can try acupuncture for the stiff neck. Works better than massage coz sometimes the muscles are inflamed. Massage will make it worse. i also get stiff neck often due to my bad sleeping posture.

    But better check if pregnant can do.

    Oh I still use my massage chair to massage my shoulders and neck because of the lack of exercise, my shoulders become very stiff. What is the reason why we can't massage shoulders? It thought as long as lower back massage is avoided should be ok....

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi all

    I'm confused with some of the abbreviations here.
    Some I have managed to deduce but others I'm still not sure.

    AF = Aunt Flo = period
    BFP = Big fat positive

    What is 2ww?
    BD?
    CD etc?

    Also, do you think travelling long distance messes up my body system? I used to have regular 28 day cycles and 95% accurate on when my period comes.
    Since I started travelling every momth or so for the past 6 months, I started to have 1 -2 days late periods
    Last month it was early by 4 days.
    And this month I a late by 7 days. I have done the test but negative
    But I have tender breasts and water retention and since I do body basal temperature charting, I notice that my temperature has been consistently high for a while >>> which usually means 1)period is coming 2) ovulation over
    Obviously I would like it to be good news but I'm beginning to worry it's something else.

    Anyone has insights or advice?
    It is so hard to "not worry" . And as I am training for running events. I decided not to do it in case I am pregnant.
    After work, also cannot drink. I feel so in between, neither here nor there...

    Thelay you might wanna check your pillow is it right for you ornt, it's regarding the posture Maybe not right. Try go seashore shop n try their various hardness n shape of pillows. Side sleeper has different type of pillow to use

    Tvh, there's a particular muscle somewhere at the shoulder that should be avoided as it may cause contraction, ie possibly mc. This is just what I've read. So if the therapist has the know-how on pregnancy massage, she will avoid that spot.

    As for avoiding people from touching your shoulder, it's just a bad luck taboo.

    Ebichan, sorry not in similar boat so cant really share on what you're going through. Have you thought of seeing a doc/sinseh if this is bothering?

    2ww = 2 weeks wait. Ie right after ovulation till next AF.

    BD =baby dance. Sex sex sex!

    CD =heheeh this one I dont know. Is there one?

    Hmm - erm I think some folks believe that shouldn't do any massage cuz shoulders shouldn't be "touched". I personally feel that one should do prenatal massage and after first trimester when it is "safer" and prenatal cuz they have been certified "safe". I dont know about massage chairs since they have been made for the general mass. But this is just my opinion.

    Ebichan - my job used to involve hordes of traveling too. I was out for about 1 week or 2 weeks in a month. Sometimes to us but mostly around the region. But I realized it wrecked havoc on my cycle. Where I can be a week early or a week late. if i am in sg for 2 months straight, my cycles are on time! I dont't know whether it is because of stress cuz everytime I am on travels I feel there is more work for me to do when I am back or if it is just because of the irregularity. Kinda like traveling disrupted my exercise schedule too. And i find in a way, travelling also disrupted my social life with friends and my loved ones. anyway, When I switched roles to a job that required less traveling, I found my cycle back to normal and hahaha my work life balance was normalized too. Maybe mine is just a one-off case but thought I would share.

    My gynae also said no heavy exercise so I stopped body combat and runs during trying to concieve. Switched to yoga (no hot yoga) and Pilates and brisk walking on threadmill and walking my dog. And I empathize with no alcohol after work cuz hahaha from wine - I switched to Shirley temple or virgin mojitos I also find I have fewer social occasions cuz most involve alcohol and I dont't wanna be tempted! Now I either hang out with the closer pals who know (and so we go out the day after they had a heavy binge so no one feels like alcohol ) or I snuggle at home with a good book. After a while, I feel healthier And detoxed and "cleaner". So that is the upside my man was surprised to see me home most Fridays just last Friday, he asked "what happened to your logic of one should fully utilize the 52 Fridays in a year? Why are you home on a Friday?"

    Cd = cycle day? It is like cd 1 = menses day 1. So a cd 30 = 30 day cycle.

    Heartz I thought you shared that af is expected on wed? So you tested too early! You know the thing about testing too early. How about keeping a little hope and test again on wed?

    Dragontail, hearts meant last wed.


    Heartz, dont be discourage. Missing af by 3 days may still be early. As long as af still doesn't appear, you can try test again next week.
