    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    My BFF had 2 rounds of IVF and they were unsuccessful. Prior to that, of course there were tests/scans done and it was found out she had a little cyst and a blocked tube. Choice was for her to decide to have the cyst removed and tube cleared, or go ahead with IVF. Those issues might or might not affect the IVF result. She decided to go ahead with IVF. Since it has been unsuccessful, she now decided to go ahead with the surgery, to correct the underlying issues. Her hubby's sperms are ok.

    I personally think she should have gone ahead with the surgery first, before the IVF. But she was ganjeong to be preggie. Now I find it was time wasted back then. She will try natural for a bit after the surgery, before the situation calls for IVF again.

    Good to do a thorough scan before jumping into IVF.

    Got a aquaintance that had a huge cyst removed and she managed to conceive naturally after that. Healthy 4 month old baby.

    Sometimes it could be psychological too. If physically, you r alright probably you r stressing yourself too much. Try yoga?

    Gabrielle.. ya like what dragontail mentioned then I remember.. doc will do pap smear test for clymedia. If ok then will do hsg test to chk for block tubes. If everything ok will do blood test to count your hormones. To see if your hormones is enough. All this test cpst me roughly 200-300$ (mine is subsidize at nuh) private guess will cost more.

    Quincy: Haha its ok! No worries.. just want to share so that all ladies can take note of what my traditional chinese medicine tells me.. My mother in law also asked me to take 8zhen. I also didnt know until I ask my traditional chinese medicine. Cox I think k it depends on individual hormones. Just mine not suitable. Hee.

    So best to do chk, consult doc to chk what herbs r good n suits you! (I regretted not asking early, my traditional chinese medicine no auto tell me also). Drink dang gui before ovulation. No dang gui after ovulation. (Last time I dont know I happily take as n when).

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Gabrielle, hang on maybe 14DPO is still early. As long as your AF still have not't show face, you can still test about few days after thats. Personally, I feel that IVF is so costly, it can actually add on extra stress to the couples. When decided to start the IVF route, its not like immdiately, you will be ask to do straight away. Firstly, both husband and wife will be ask to do s series of blood test. Then you will start taking leaves from work and sometimes some KPO colleagues will starting asking what you are doing.

    Then at home, you need to do self-injection thing daily. Sometimes, you may or may not vomit depending how you react to the injection. After the process, you will need to have a lot of bed rest and best is to take a long leaves from work again. ( this is provided that the boss is vey considerate). Because when doing IVF, pre and post is very import. Pre is to have a relax mind and body and Post is to have alot of rest.

    If the process is a success, of course very happy. But if unsuccessful, not only the stress is build up, still have to face those kpo colleagues asking you what is the result etc.
    dont't be mistaken as I am not discouraging you I am just stating the facts and let you know and at least can meaure the pros and cons. Because, I can understand your "want means want" mind as me also the same last time. Last year I had only try 2x IUIs but also failed. IUIs stress is also not lesst than IVF even though doctor say only increase the chance by 6%.

    @rav3naers, I wish you a very healthy and happy 9 months pregnancy


    Hi all... I'm joining you ladies back. But, not as pregger my fetus passed on yesterday, been crying a lot for the past 2 days. It's hard not to cry coz we've been trying for almost 2 years after 1st mc. Sorry for the long posting.

    I started spotting on sunday, hoped for the best it was old blood, I even went to see gynae(in jb) to confirm the caused, was on progesterone to support the pregnancy since few weeks ago. The gynae did a scan, fetus showed 1.5cm, was told I'm about 6 weeks into pregnancy and said spotting is normal. In my heart, I had a bad feeling coz I did a scan 2 weeks back, fetus was 5wk2d already at 0.61cm, meaning my fetus should age 7-8weeks by now. Sadly, I started to spot more on monday with bits & pieces of brownish thingy, slowly I see red. Talked to my gynae(in sg), she told me fetus is not growing accordingly and I'm in the process of mc.

    I tried not to walk and rest on my bed a lot thinking maybe the gynae was wrong, but I was wrong... Yesterday was the worst day of my life, fetus decided to come out when I was in the bathroom. My sg gynae(I'm gonna stick to her since most gynae sucks in jb) did an ultrasound and say I have little clots left in my uterus to clear and was given antibiotic. Follow-up appt will be next week to make sure, no more clots left and dont't require D&C.

    Perhaps I shouldn't have told my family members during 1st trimester and silly me still continue with cardio routine. Well, at least I'm confident to say, I will once again graduate from here with healthy pregnancy really soon and of course will stay out from all strenuous activities ! Geez... I felt so relieved now

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    AudienceMama, first thing first, tell yourself it's ok to mourn for now. Dont think of anything else. Just do as what the gynae says and then rest your body. If you think you can, do a mini confinement for 2 weeks. Or at least take some time off from working. Keep your self warm, away from chills. Eat food with lotsa ginger. Do herbal bath if you can. I know these sound like a lot... but do know that your body now is at its weakest and this is the only time your weak body will absorb every nutrients and then come out even stronger once you've healed.

    To me, I believe the fetus didnt stick because it wasnt healthy enough. Not because you did cardio, or something you did or didnt do. Life has its way to eliminate what's not viable.... Trust that that is so and life will give you back what is right in due time! Now, dont bother about what should or shouldnt have been said or done. Most importantly get healthy again then stand up on your feet and start again. Remind yourself you'll be ok!

    I've had 2 MCs and the 2nd one was similar to your experience. Let's try again

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Girls, I would like to share some superfood ideas from a trying to concieve email subscription I have. (free one)
    It is hard to find Kale in Singapore (only recently have baby kale) so I use that in green smoothies as well powder kale.

    I will up my dinner preparation for my husband for Oily Fish and maybe avocado smoothie since he dont like the avocado on its own.

    Kale: A powerful antioxidants, packed with
    vitamins and nutrients including vitamin A,
    folic acid and calcium. Enhances the immune
    system, repairs and protects cells. Especially
    helpful for those with PCOS or endometriosis.

    Raspberries and Blueberries: loaded with
    antioxidants that protect the body from cell
    damage and aging which also include your egg cells.

    Oily Fish: Rich in omega-3 and omega-6, the oil
    of shellfish, salmon, mackerel, and sardines has
    an excellent effect on sperm count.

    Avocado: An unsaturated fat which is a great
    source of vitamin E, and a powerful antioxidant.
    It improves the viability of sperm and aids in
    healthy hormone functioning.

    TVH, Gabrielle86, ebichan, Dragontail, quincy1986, littlehamster... thank you ladies for your concerns, big hugs~~~

    Yes, I'm gonna do 2 weeks of confinement. Started last night. Keeping myself warm with red dates+longan drink, lotsa ginger in my food, using socks and cover well when I rest.

    I'm gonna continue to try after 1 cycle to period. At the meantime, I'll let my physical and emotional heal. BFP WILL COME TO US REAL SOON.

    Thanks you Missy10, prayinghard... hugs to both you~

    I'm better today, didn't tear much unlike the last 2 days. The public must be wondering why my eyes and nose are so red & swollen. No doubt hubby was sad till he have no words to speak, but he still cuddle and comfort me in a silent way.

    I'm going to eat and rest well before my period start so that I can enjoy the process of love making again.
