    we can only take traditional chinese medicine after AF... so if you tell your sinseh, she/he might help in adjusting your medicine before you O

    Faithmummy I did tell Dr. Su yesterday that I didn't notice much cm this month. Not sure is she adjusted the medicine but the dose for this time taste horrible compared to previous dose. Think my af should be here this coming sat and I just bought Pre seed yesterday so hopefully the coming cny holidays which coincides with my fertile period will be a good time for us to rest and relax ..

    Hi Mint welcome to the thread. Is your hubby taking supplements to prepare himself? Everything will fall into place with Dr Su's help and good luck!
    superwomancqy

    yes !! the cycle she adjusted my medicine to have more CM, that dose of Medicine taste Horrible !!!!

    littlehamster

    want to seek second opinion to play safe?
    i dont't really trust Kandang Kerbau Hospital.

    my colleague had bad experience with Kandang Kerbau Hospital.
    Kandang Kerbau Hospital told her to do D & C because no heartbeat for her baby.
    But she visited another gynae, that gynae told her to wait... and thus she waited for another 2 weeks and there is heartbeat !!

    Oh saw Dr su just now...she didn't say I pregnant so I guess not. Told her this month got pain on and off...she said maybe the eggs didn't grow well. AND No herbal tea for both of us.
    So it's medicine to induce again...

    I am going to NUH for it. Supposed to start on 1st day of cycle for Feb. If you r going to Nuh, they have an Ivf seminar for couples starting on Ivf journey. you will be able to experience hands on how to measure the dosage for hormones, and see the equipment used for harvesting follicles.

    Oh it helped that i found out no caffeine in dec when work was slower paced. Initially un-tahanable but I gradually got used to it.

    Not having wine was worse. Hahahh. I know I sound like an alcoholic but I used to have drinks twice a week - one with friends and one with colleagues / work engagements. Now my friends (those wont dont know i am trying) say they dont't see me anymore. Those who know I am trying can't believe I am this person who is having warm water whilst they are having alcohol!

    So the problem is I dont't see clots cuz I used tampons! And to be honest I dont't like wearing pads during the day. Feel it impedes my movements!

    What is blastocyst again? As in what happens if you have this b-cyst?

    Maybe that is why my gynae wants me to see him during the first 5 days of my period so he can check out if I got problem. When I asked him not gross, he reverted he seen more blood than me. I am so not sure how this is going to work.

    Now still waiting for af's arrival. Please arrive before Thursday so I still have time to cheong see gynae. Otherwise have to wait for next cycle .
    Try ultra thins? But yup.. Sometimes it still feels like something is giving me a wedgie. Do update us on how this checking blood thing goes.

    @littlej
    about those who understand what i am saying
    like my fellow senior colleagues
    i just mention my sinseh says i should do this or that
    then because they are experienced, they go very loud and say oh she is trying to concieve! i felt so embarrassed i'm like breaking out in cold sweat. although i know perhaps they mean no harm, i so paiseh i dont know what to say anymore. i didnt try to deny or admit though.

    now how should i say i cannot eat cold food...bla bla ?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    @ littlej, oops sorry I thought I read the subsidy thing at JB. Like not the style of government what.....

    @ quincy, before that-c, I drank tea once or twice a day. Either tea with milk or teh-xi-kosong (i like!). I dont touch coffee at all. Now, I drink tea like once a week. Actually my sinseh told me I can still drink tea as and when I like. Just make sure I have 1-2hours apart from her powder. Again, everyone is different. She thinks I'm ok with the tea if I want to. Actually I'm one who can survive on just plain o water. I dont need much of varieties; and I dont crave for caffeine either so kicking off the daily tea is no problem.

    @ littlehamster. Like what most have shared, give it another week. Meantime, just go on as normal. Hopefully it's a slow snake ya.

    @ faithmummy, that's awful to hear. Which gynae did your friend see? Or was it the doc at the 24hr clinic at Kandang Kerbau Hospital? Personally, I've decided to choose Kandang Kerbau Hospital and I'm sticking to it/my gynae.

    Quincy1986, I understand how I feel. Sometimes some ppl just aren't very sensitive. Just say your period cramps lately very bad, you go traditional chinese medicine and doc advised you not to take cold drinks. I dont't like to let ppl know I'm trying to concieve cos they will keep asking about progress.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Anyone binges when AF is coming? I'm one and sometimes I feel guilty about it. It will last about a week until my AF arrives. Therefore during this one binging week, I feel I'm most ugly. lol. Because I feel all my skirts/pants are so tight. And I have to literally walk around sucking in my tummy (AF bloatness + binging = look really fat).

    I will crave for sweet carbo usually. I will tip 1-1.5kg more during this one week but by mid of my AF cycle, I will just resume back my weight.

    I binge! But usually crave meat... Spicy foods. Sugar not so much.. Sometimes I wish binges are for things like vegetables or prunes then I won't feel so guilty.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I think my office co-workers are rather mature and sensitive bunch. They knew I've had an MC (the first one in Aug last year); I was at home for 4 weeks. When I went back office, it was rather a touching moment. Some close ones just came forward to me and said "welcome back". I thought that was so short yet totally appropriate. They knew I'm that-cing again but I'm glad no one came forward to me to -ji--jor (haa sorry you gotta know cantonese to understand this ;p).

    Even my own m-i-l never talked much about how I should try for a baby. She is one of those silent ones.. buy foodies, make soups for me. I just eat them all.

    The only person who is "crazy" about me having a baby is my granny-in-law. A lot of stories to hear from her. Guess she can't wait to have a great-grandkid.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    @adrenalin - oh yes i will update everyone once I see my gynae. The problem is - AF must come either tomorrow, Wednesday or after Sunday. If AF comes on Thursday or Friday - Then I can only see my gynae at the next cycle cuz I will be away again from Thursday onwards.

    @adrenalin - Oh I took traditional chinese medicine meds even when my AF is here. I suppose AF is supposed to clear away last month's "toxins" so would be good to take traditional chinese medicine to ahem ensure the 'toxins' get cleared?? Have you taken traditional chinese medicine before? Personally I feel that it's better to try all non-invasive methods and until you know you've tried your best - then to go for the invasive ways. That's just my personal opinion anyway. And also, I understand from past posts and feedback that traditional chinese medicine is not a one-month miracle. You need to give it time to 'tiao'. Yes I know it sux cuz I initially also thought traditional chinese medicine is a miracle but I guess if it's truly that one month miracle all the fertility specialists would go out of business.

    @dragontail - Yes I binge the one week prior and I also get very grumpy and emotional and like a crybaby sometimes! I usually dont't take breakfast (wake up too late) but during this one week - I must have breakfast. Oh but I find that after taking Dr Wu med, I become less emotional as in I dont't cry anymore. But the other symptoms like hunger, cramps and leg ache still exist.

    @littlehamster - oh what a horrible doc! I also think you should seek a second opinion. Y'know if I were you, I would open my eyes big big and ask the doc "so how - you're the doc, are you going to do anything about my baby or are you just going to sit here and tell me oh miss - most likely miscarriage." Seriously dumba** doc.

    @faithmummy - Ouch - You mean those cysts mean that the conception was actually kinda successful but not successful to see it through?? Ouch, I wouldn't wanna check on my flow then. I'd be so depressed if I see blastocysts

    @poohy - Oh bummer. Have you tried HPT? Ok It's not that I dont't trust traditional chinese medicine but I think also better to check all avenues to triple stamp chop confirm.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    BTW - Quick question - has anyone's gynae here advised you to visit him/her when your AF is here? Or is my gynae the only one?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    @quincy - Oh that is exactly why I've decided to stop going for after work drinks and some friends' gatherings. I dont't want them to be asking me why aren't you drinking anymore and then jump to the conclusion I'm preggers.

    So now, my social life is now a healthy life. I hang out with really close friends who know.. And rest of the time, either with dear or simply stay home and read a book
