    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    oh yeah...
    not sure if any of you ladies have tried Raspberry Leaf Tea? Cos i have read online that it improves your womb, tones the uterus and prevents miscarriage.
    Red Raspberry Leaf Tea and Fertility - ConceiveEasy

    I know i have read somewhere, Jacelyn Tay (that mediacorp actress) also mentioned she drank Raspberry Leaf Tea while trying to conceive.

    I have bought a box and been wanting to try but i've also heard some people said that Tea is too cooling and not good for women.
    That even Green Tea is also not suitable for us to drink. Now confused already.

    and oh... im taking Conceive Well now. DO you ladies think i should take my EPO as well?
    I scared im taking too much things.. hahaha

    LOL Im the queen of taking many things.
    But I dont know about green tea. It's my habit to drink. Feel weird if dont have green tea.
    I think for what it's worth- the anti cancer properties, it is good!

    red raspberry leaf tea, like Epo, causes uterine contractions. so you can't take it during 2ww. Best to take from day one of menses up until ovulation.

    Ahhh.....ok have to bear in mind no cold food for now.

    Yes the effect of EPO is very fast for curbing pms symptoms.

    My heart just missed dont't know how many beats from the bright lightning and loud thunder just seconds ago!

    Heee I'm generally very brave....but I totally go weak at the sight of lightnings!

    Best to avoid tea/caffeine when you & husband are trying to conceive. dont't drink or reduce coffee intake, all sorts of alcohol(no-no), chocolate drink and tea, especially green tea.
    However, you can experiment with herbal teas. I recommend roasted herbal roots such as barley, dandelion and lemongrass, peppermint, ginger root, rosehip, apple, hibiscus, and chamomile. These can be nourishing and satisfying without the depleting effects of caffeine.
    Decaffeinated options for tea and coffee aren't really good substitute as we have no idea how much chemicals are involved in the decaffeinated process.

    Chamomile no no. Cos it will help relax and later the uterus relax and contractions

    Taking yogurt during trying to concieve can help your body eliminate hormones it doesn't need anymore. If old hormones aren't eliminate, these can create an imbalance which can have negative effect on your fertility.

    Buy yogurt that are 'live' and organic, steer clear the fruit yogurts as they can contain a lot of added sugar that will have a huge impact on your fertility. Meaning too much sugar intake will hinder ovulation

    Pinkloliapop... chocolate contains caffeine too and you can't cheat by switching to organic dark chocolate, LoL! Water and milk are your best choices. They provide proper conception to occur.

    General infos: Methylxanthines is a substance found in coffee, black & green tea, cocoa, soft drinks, decaffeinated drinks, alcohol and some headache medications. It has been linked to benign breast condition. Due to that substance, women experienced breast discomfort in the week before a period.

    I am taking organic plain yogurt, sometimes greek yogurt. Even my gynae asked me to have yogurt during trying to concieve. dont't take frozen yogurt as it contains too much of sweeteners.

    Ebichan, I'm actually a trained oncology staff nurse. Most of my japanese lady patients are diagnosed with breast cancer. It's ok to have green tea in moderation as it is an anti-ageing drink.

    The source of my daily caffeine used to be teh-si which is really bad for the womb. Love iced water, drinks, ice cream, BUBBLE TEA!!! etc etc. Love super spicy stuff too. After started trying to concieve, only drink warm water, drink half a cup of coffee, had a small ice cream only once a fortnight to get rid of the craving. Really cut down on the spicy food that my tolerance for chilli is super low now. Limit intake of fried stuff also. >_< geez...i really miss bubble tea, can only steal sips from hubby. Hahhha :x
