    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Missy10: I really like how confident you are every month - I'm always so scared of pinning too much hopes! When is your af due? Since you're already on 6dpo and it's probably implantation spotting this morning, then you may wanna try poas 2-4 days later! (by right hcg would have built up and doubled already then quickly come spread baby dust to us who need it badly! :x I need baby luck! Lots of it!!!) Jiayou!!!

    gnissim23: Yeah loh, last month I was a bit more hopeful with the looking larger than normal areola on my boobs, and the pinkish spotting but, you know, a new cycle awaits me... :x My gynae is very strict with not symptom-spotting, he says too many women want it so much that when we see af, it affects us even more which is no good cos it's important to be as relaxed as possible during trying to concieve :x So now I try not to... I never have any cramps and PMS , af is just like another day for me except I'm feeling more uncomfortable and hot with the pad only lol I'm supposed to see my gynae on CD2/3 (since CD2 will be a Sunday so I booked CD3 beforehand - the clinic assistant was like, you can wait until menses turn up first before booking appointment you know? cos I was like so sure af is gonna show up!) for him to check on the blood flow :x If af doesn't show up then I should see him 3 weeks later, but I thought since I already have an appointment with him, af or no af I'll still go Aiya 16 dpo can test already, Sunday will be a good day for you!

    tricky: I think my dad is pretty cool too lol The man who loves me the most! (yeah, I think so! He loves me longer than my hubby loh so definitely my dad is top position lol) you and poohy both on CD9, I think it's good to not O so early, read before about O-ing too early likely to result in lower quality eggs :x Not sure how true, my gynae kinda scoff at internet sources haha (subtly of cos)

    poohy: I dont't have ! The sales gal never asked me ! :x OMG I must go join, though I only buy chicken essence from them lol CD9 should be safe for the weekends, your cycle is not like 25-26 days that short right? Crossing fingers for you that your ovaries and hormones will cooperate with the hospital's timing! (umm, I'm not productive at all loh... Still think of having as many as possible, I think at this rate, one would be a blessing! :x)

    quincy: Entertaining like the circus clown? (waves on dad's behalf)

    Quin - dont worry about the fortune forecast, i always dont believe unless I hear it myself.... mayb tell you something about my master
    He claimed that me(pig) n hubby(mouse) 八字 clashed.... but he was surprised when i wanted to get wedding auspicious date, he says although 八字clashed, but both of us willing to challenge the fate together

    He also claimed that me(pig) and dad(snake) also clashed, but because it father-daughter relationship so naturally can dissolve

    AF dont think should come on 16 May but 8 mths later..... hehehehehehe

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Qinn: haha I also book my traditional chinese medicine in advance! After O I will calculate the 2ww and plus 4 days of AF n then book the appt. As the slot is always full. So I just book in advance hehe.. ya. But sometimes sick will delay af as well. Haha. Ya last time i also always read into symptoms. But my symptoms every month like not same one. then for past 2 mths i got no symptoms at all. But this month is weird. Perhaps of the wrong medicine doc gave that time? -.- somemore my usual thermometer is misplace. Using the cheapo one with with xx.x only. Instead of the basal xx.xx. my hubby ask him help me buy he say wait i recover frm my sickness ownself go buy. Kns. So bad of him . My LP is long. Last month is 17dpo then my temp drop. Fingers cross for both of us. If I still have high temps on sun probably I will test. Keke. Jiayou!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    lovesbaby: PM-ed you BTW I'm supposedly warm-based according to one traditional chinese medicine... I keep eating heaty food also - love mangoes, durians, lychees, longans, jackfruit LRD I'm taking daily cos I like the taste hehe, chicken essence everyday too. So far no ulcers or anything, except the stupid flu... :x You can try alternate days LRD first and chicken essence 3 times a week if you are worried? I know many ladies here see a traditional chinese medicine, I've heard Dr Su is very popular - you may wanna consider giving her a try, or Dr Wu. And me no pro, you can tell I'm a noob from my blur replies lol I can't rely on OPK to guide me one, I find it very arbitrary like soon to O but have not't O, may O in 12-36 hours (some sources say can be up to 48 hours) - so, it's what? 12hours, 24 hours, 48 hours, or for all I know it can be 19 hours later :x I can't deal with not knowing for sure! The only method to me that I can know for sure if through ultrasound, with doc telling me clearly that I have O-ed. I can deal with not knowing exactly which day, but I need to know that I've O-ed for sure! :x That's just me - which is why I prefer to see a gynae so often to monitor the O, rather than the less ley chey alternative of using OPK lol , I've heard of the past life thing too - we can't prove or deprove it, but I sure know my dad loves me so much! I'm also in my 30s - 31 already.

    Missy10: I think fengshui and fortune forecast very subjective and differs between one master to the next! I agree to best take it with a pinch of salt :x

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    @Dagontail - if you dont like chicken essence as it is, you can use it as a soup base for the any soup you make. Sometimes, i just pour 1 bottle of chicken essence on the regular soup that i make. Makes the soup more tasty and yummy without having to put any additional condiments.

    @Qinn - I have no brand preference for chicken essence. I am very cheapo. I usually stock up whichever brand when they are on sale. EYS ones apparently do not contain caramel sugar.

    @Littlej - Have you decided on which gyn to deliver your baby boy? My this cycle has come and gone. My new gyn checked on me just now and told me i had ovulated. I had opk positive 2 days back but didnt bd. i am heading for the HSG (which will be done prior to the surgery) and lapa end of this month. His scan machines i must say is pretty state of the art and very new as compared to the last 2 gyns that i had used before. So nervous. Hope the surgery goes well.

    @Missy10 - all your symptoms are very positive. Hope you got good news soon!

    @Tricky - When is your usual ovulation day? my is around CD14 +-.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Qinn- haha i join EYS as member. they give one time off vouchers also. So quite worth it ...go join if you intend to continue buy from them. My cycle not so short...about 30-33days. So keeping fingers crossed.

    i intially never thought of wanting to have more children but as my girl gets older, she wanted playmates and refused to play alone. She is not a loner and always ask for friends. So quite sad that i failed to give her siblings yet also....so will have to really jia you and to multiply! hahaha.

    I've actually stopped seeing Dr Su ...i felt that when i took her medicine, my AF somehow either come late (long LP) or didnt come! 2 times false alarm and I had enough of it.haha, so decided to go back to western medicine.

    qnissim- you also doing IUI soon? I'm given clomid....cant go natural iui coz i'm not producing good eggs (by way, i've been eating lots of eggs recently to improve my eggs quality- hope it helps!) So you gonna start eating healthy and get ready for iui...

    Lovesbaby - i believe whatever you take - traditional chinese medicine, lrd tea, zhen, heaty fruits to warm the body, but you still need to drink lots lots of warm water..... since i took Dr Su medicine, i drink warm water, even im on the run(sales line) i brought along my thermos bottle

    That prevents me from 发热

    I'm troubled Anyone experienced eczema before? First time in my life, I got some on my neck. When the weather turns warm and humid, the spots get bigger and itchy. If in aircon place, I dont feel they are there. It's not very obvious now (have them for a weel plus). But I wanna make sure they dont spread or get worse. Was adviced to apply the cream and keep the skin there moisturised. Anyone knows any other ways to keep them away?

    I know eczema is partly due to stress or not sleeping well. I think the recent mourning (poochy gone) and work stress have taken a toll. Please help me!!

    Thanks ladies.

    Yes I'm aware this eczema will never heal. It can disappear to the naked eyes. But once the stress strikes or from whatever hormone reasons, it may resurface. Cant do much on that But I just hope it wont spread! Gotta go destress and sleep early and better....
