    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    gnissim, I gave up on bbt already (dont't want to make myself too stress) but I just started on opk last month. Reason I say I dont' ovulate every month is base on last year after my first MC, my gynae told me I have hormone imbalance. After that, I started seeing Dr Su to tiao. Then this year another MC, so I assume my hormone may haywire again. But Dr Su did mention to me now my body got some improvement but still gotta build my Qi.

    Qinn, my cycle usually 28-31 days. But I didn't pin much hope for the last snakey as my coughing is still quite bad (think this cough virus may affect my trying to concieve mood also) even after I finished doc's syrup, sigh.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Did you ladies use all chinese dates for the gender prediction? Conceiving in "January" is the lunar Jan, not the ang mor Jan.

    Mine this cycle if conceived is Girl. Thereafter pretty much alternate boy girl boy girl.

    But then, gender (in scientific term) is based on when the BD was done, nearing to the O, since boy-sperm and girl-sperm have different lifespan inside the tube. But then, seems like most of you all got it right! Tonight I try on my mom :P She got all 4 girls.

    littlej, you're spot on. My sis who is in HR (born in 1970s) told me these days she cant help feeling so old because most of the job applicants are 90s. And whenever I see a JC/Poly student/Army boy/teenager, I always tell my hubby I could be his/her mom! Totally know what you meant.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    lunar month is always minus one month right?

    then lunar age is plus one year?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Not quite true TVH. If you conceive on English 4 April, it抯 lunar Feb. Conceive on 28 April, it抯 lunar March. So still have to refer to the lunar calendar to get exact month.

    Likewise for lunar age. It depends your birthdate was before or after the Chinese new year. I know all these are confusing. Haa why cant these prediction calendar comes in ang mor date version?

    nataliengbh: *hugs* It will get better, when you do get time then do follow up on traditional chinese medicine I've heard of so many people getting their health back in check after long periods of traditional chinese medicine so it does take time. Meanwhile you've your little gal I also dont't like medicines in general, and most of all panadols too! & prednisolone is one of the most foul-tasting ang mo med... (a steriod to take when I get asthma attacks)

    littlej: 1993! I feel old! Wonders how it feels for those ladies rejoining the workforce at mid-30s after taking a long break to care for their children...? :x
    Thanks...i always have this belief..whatever that is mine, will be mine...of course will feel sad...but thats life..its full with ups and downs..

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    prayinghard: have you recovered from the cough now? Whenever I get a cold that develops into a cough, it can take me months to recover cos I'm asthmatic. If you're still not well I can recommend you a gp in Bishan who I always see when I can't recover from coughs. (The distance I travel to see docs all over the Island lol Bishan for cough, Yishun for traditional chinese medicine & maybe Bukit Batok for Dr Su soon, CBD for other common ailments and closer to home for all sorts of specialists :x) Every cycle I'll just bd bd bd bd and more bd until about CD21/22 then maybe bd every 2-3 days till af is here & thoughts on the day I O, if I've O-ed, why no EWCM etc won't take up much of my thought process, just do first then think later lol... Guess I'm simple-minded, dont't like thinking too much My clockwork-like 30-day cycles also dont't allow me to overthink, once hit CD31 BAM! AF is here... :x

    Dragontail: That's what I did, lunar age VS lunar months

    TVH: Lunar age is plus one year, and lunar month is about minus one month (not to the exact day), for your reference today is lunar Mar 9 (三月初九), my in-laws go by lunar calendar dates for many many events at home (very super traditional) so I tend to know the exact date... Not sure if you can be redirected to the lunar calendar, but here it is:

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Shez - Just FYI, I used OPK even when I visited my gynae and had the dates to BD. Haahahaha. Kiasu-ism at its prime I know.

    Oh we have to use Chinese definition of the month for conception?? Hmm ok for me - if I backdate 1 month or 2 months from the ang mo month - It will still be boy.

    Ya ya - apparently the spermies for girls can survive longer than boys. So technically that means it's more difficult to conceive a girl than a boy right? Which means we ladies should be more 'treasured' and more 'precious' than boys since it's easier to get a boy but more difficult to get a girl.

    Hmm - I wonder those who conceive twins and long feng tai (boy + girl) - How both scientific and chinese lunar methods account for this.

    Dragontail - I think you and me are the only 70s babies. The rest are 80s... When we are in primary school, the rest probably still nesting in their mother's wombs or are still some floating genetic "Y" chromosomes .... :P

    Qinn - Where do you stay? For me - I go to the docs nearer to me. So thomson area for doc which cures my cough everytime. And AMK for traditional chinese medicine. Oh, think Glen E is the furthest I have to travel for doc....

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    TVH: no, not confusing at all you can use this to calculate your exact lunar birthday --

    公历查农历、查生辰八字、公历农历对照日历查询

    Look to your left, there are two drop-down selection boxes, use the one that says "公历查农历" (公历 = ang mo calendar, 农历 = lunar calendar)
    Just input your birthday and it will tell you your lunar birthday.

    For eg, my lunar birthday is Feb 28, if it's 18 Jan 2013 today then I'm still 31. But since it's 9 Mar 2013 today (lunar date) then I'm already 32.

    some of the gender prediction website, you only need to key in the georgian calendar and it would auto convert to lunar calendar...the link that was provided previously is one of them...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    littlej: I live near GlenE :x Thomson is not that far if the roads are clear, but depending on which part of Thomson I guess... my hubby says I should give birth at GlenE or Mt E for convenience sake & he hates Thomson Medical Center parking hahaha... Cos I was thinking of going Thomson Medical Center to save some pennies (well, first I need to get myself knocked up!)

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    my friend sent me this chinese gender prediction calendar before actually....

    and i always thought and i have read....if you bd too close to O date, it will likely turn out to be a boy...if it's during your fertile phase, it's likely to be a girl...
    and if you continue bd right after O, will be a boy....if you stop BD after O, will be a girl...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    actually...... since it's the man who determines the sex of babies, shouldn't calendar predictions be based on men?! :x (well, granted I believe the women's internal conditions do affect which spermie - the X or the Y, eventually makes it to the grand prize, but still!)

    But glene's parking is horrible and terrible too. Can hardly get a lot. And I am reluctant to pay for the valet. So I always park at botanic gardens then walk over

    Qinnne, i think that is fair! But I am being reminded (from littlej's e book again ) that men are ALWAYS fertile. Woman is not. So someone out there came out with this predictor for women.
    Out now to color my hair before my O happens

    Natalie, so that makes 3 of us...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hey TVH - The trick to getting a lot at GlenE - Either schedule your appointment first thing in the morning - ie 830am and be there at 8am (Docs all have not't arrived yet). OR last appointment of the day - ie 5pm. Sure got parking lots around 5pm.

    And of course, never go on a Saturday.

    Oh I heard Thomson Medical Center's parking is horrendous.

    Hmm - i guess, at this rate, most of us will end up with boys cuz we're all BD-ing around the O date with the BBT, OPK, traditional chinese medicine and doc's advice etc.

    OH oh - My hubby also told me that he once did a pre-marital check with his ex (Now I wonder why I never asked for one.. I was too naive!!) and he found out that he has a higher concentration of "X" chromosomes than "Y" chromosomes so his child will more often be a boy not a girl. Not sure if he's pulling my leg...?? When he last did the sperm test with me, it was for pre-conception so measured motility, etc.. Never said anything about X versus Y chromosomes...
