Hello ppl. I have a confession to make. Some of you may have already guessed it.
I am around 12 weeks preggers now and I just did my Oscar scan recently. Sorry for keeping it quiet for so long but hubby super pan tung and refuse to let me tell anyone. In fact, our parents dont't know about it yet. Neither do our best friends.
Why I am saying now. Argh. I just feel so "compressed" and kinda like a "liar" The past few months but at the same time, i have to support my man's decision. Anyway, I'm almost coming to the end of the first trimester (hopefully all will be smooth) so should be ok bah. i am still wondering how to break the news to my best friends and family. Please dont't be angry with me. And hmm, this is a stealth confession. My man doesn't know I have told you all (in fact I dont't think he knows I am active on this forum chat )
So for the past few months, I have tried to drop hints here and there on how I managed to conceive successfully. here's a summary.
1/ gave up body combat and running for 2 months. Only did walking and yin yoga and Pilates. And at least 4 xmorning walks with my dog during the week (soaking in vit d). I didn't even do Hatha yoga.
2/ gave up all cold drinks. No caffeine too.
3/ no yoga and Pilates during 2ww. Only exercise I did during 2ww is morning walks with my dog to soak vit d.
4/ traditional chinese medicine - thank you dragontail for dr wu recommendation.
5/ yoga for fertility every night - as per the YouTube link I sent before.
6/ lrd tea and chicken essence during 2ww - thank you everyone for this recommendation.
7/ vits taken included gnc multi vit, royal jelly, vit e, folic acid.
8/ saw new gynae Who gave my man tentex and some vits for me. Gynae also did some womb massage for me during the consultation.
9/ followed gynae's timetable for bd. alternate days during the week. no bd during 2ww.
10/ butt on pillow after bd. no peeing, no getting up, just lie still and zzz.
11/ bought a jade peanut charm and hang on my pouch.
12/ bbt - thank you everyone here for your comments and encouraging me when I felt like giving up.
13/ opk - used clearblue. Got smiley which also coincided with the bd timetable.
14/ womb massage. During period, before o and 2ww. 2ww massage was to place palms on belly before zzz.
15/ wore socks to zzz - thanks everyone for your recommendation on this.
17/ drank zhen soup weekly (not during 2ww). It was the most foul tasting soup ever but my mum boiled.
18/ bd - missionary or doggy when the man comes. No cowgirl or reverse cowgirl position. As recommended by gynae.
19/ I tested the day af was supposed to arrive. I went to see gynae the minute i saw bfp. Subsequently, I went to see gynae on week 5, week 7 and 10. Next visit is week 13.
I have to thank all of you, plus my mum plus my man - for contributing to my trying to concieve success. Especially all of you for the suggestions, recommendations and most importantly, this virtual friendship that included encouragement and support. You folks here really helped and I thank god for introducing you all to my life.
i have been silently wishing everyone baby dust since my bfp and will continue doing so until everyone here graduates from This trying to concieve journey.
