    Thanks missy10. Didnt know go lei is the korean ginseng. My mother in law has that stocked at home. I've been drinking it once a month. Think can't drink too often. It's rather a strong herb.

    Havent been to Changi Village for years and decided to pop by just now. My goodness that place is jam packed. Whacked oily food like bbq chix wings and mee goreng. Now I feel my stomach half filled with grease.

    Chanced upon this site and there's a motherhood fair at expo on 30May for a few days. Maybe a good time to stock up a few things for mummies-to-be here

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    missy10, burping, hungry (mind or tummy), are signs during early pregnancy

    This month and the last, I'm on dry spell. Usually a week before my O, I already get EWCM. Dont know why like that. I cant read my CM to determine my O anymore.

I think your body is A OK and perfect for preparing the little beanie

    such a coincidence you are talking about ginseng. I also read that study about lab rats a couple of days ago and freaked me out because my Maca pills also have ginseng, but dont know if it's Korean or American, have to check.

    have a relaxing holiday to those who are having a trip and missy10 and Gnissim, dont't lift anything !!

    I'm 6dpo (like Poohy I think) and had bad progesterone cramps yesterday, dont know if it's good or bad.
    Sorry tricky, i missed your Q,
    Sinseh did say my inner body was in a mess upon the first visit, till the last visit(tue 14/5), consumed 1 month supply of medicine, she told me not to worry she is sure that i can conceive

    Offically if based on following sinseh n bbt n cm, is only 2 months

    Hope this cleared your query....

    Oh ya .. Maybe happysoul has happy news?!? Hee hee.. And shez too?!?

    Hee hee dragontail - that was a short spell

    On a seperate forum chat, there were some mums expressing disappointment and even cried after finding out the gender of the baby. I was surprised and shocked and disappointed. This is singapore where both genders receive almost equal and fair treatment... There are us out there who are trying to conceive, how could anyone not graciously accept the gender of this precious gift of life and instead of expressing joy and gratitude, they are expressing sadness and disappointment?!? No offense to anyone but I thought that was just so selfish. (And yes, I do not feel like participating in that chat anymore).

    littlej: i am not ashamed to admit i will be sad. basis on my in laws being such bias people. i think i dont need to explain you all also know my in laws thinking.

    my in laws already have 3 grand daughters. if mine still a girl, my girl will get the least love in the family. and i will feel very heartpain for my girl.

    i am most likely a working mom. i want my kid(s) to get the love they need.

    Thats very bad of those mummies who mind the sex of the baby.... but maybe they have their reason (hubby family)

    btw.... i also live black black carrot cake, 越黑越好, especially those used black sweet sauce the better....

    Actually i cant wait till Mon, i hinted hubby on Fri night, he gave me that kind of "are you sure" look, kinda disappointing..... then he also say Mon theb test.... but i really wanna convince him, so i secretly test every morning.... line getting darker n darker....

    As im supposed to start new set of medicine, I called Dr Su this morning, and told her about the faint line..... she sounded surprise and sked me to stop the medicine immediately until I got doctor confirmation, she scare too 补, the womb also cannot hold the sac,

    Hmmmz.. it would be good to have a boy..cos my husband is the only son...but i would not lose sleep or cry even though she is a girl . Cos I feel that the most important thing is that the baby is healthy. .as long as he/she grow up healthy and well..it is the greatest blessing to me already..my daughter actually prefer a sister. ..

    Dragontail, I may also start fading out from the chat not because I'm bfp and dont wanna let you all know but because I felt that I have no more to share (emo-ing) as every month I will just face the same thing, that is the wicked AF.

    But I will still continue to read everyday and Congrats whoever bfp here.

    One day if I ever bfp, then I will come back and spread my baby dust. Sigh, I hope there is this day. But I strongly believe ( woman instinct) that all of you will graduate before I start spreading.

    Few months ago (maybe last year), within this forum, I was in shock too in another thread where a preggie mom shared that she did a scan and baby's heartbeat rate was measured and she wanted to know if the rate has anything to do with gender (too early to tell gender from visual scan). She said her hubby will be very disappointed if it were turn out to be a gal. I posted in reply. Told her I'm disappointed to be hearing this. It's a God's beautiful gift and how can one be feeling so?

    I know pressure can come from inlaws/old folks/old brains. Regardless, it's going to be my child and frankly, I do not need anyone else's (except my hubby's) endorsement to determine how I should feel towards him/her. I receive the gender with open arms. If my child is going to receive less love from inlaws (or whoever I dont care), it doesnt bother me a single bit. It's a bonus my child gets TLC from whoever. Without, I dont feel my child can be less of a happier/healthier child. If inlaws dont love/help the grandkid when I'm working, there's always alternative solution. Just that the parents have to make some compromises. I've seen it happened among friends. And the child is growing up well and whole.

    My inlaws always subtly say they are not gender bias. My hubby says that to me too. So that's a blessing. But even if it's not, it wont change anything for me or my child to be.

    Disclaimer : everyone's situation and upbringing are different. I'm just speaking from my own.

    Prayinghard: jiayou.. tiao your body, take n dp what you suppose to it n baby will come to you very soon ok? dont keep thinking about it n you may have a surprise.

    I think those people that is easy to conceive will tend to have gender preference. But for me, after trying to concieve for so long we r already very contented with a bfp. So tts life. They will expect more aka different expectation I suppose. I even saw posts that pple wanna "abort" the baby cox its a girl. Really dont know what some pple are thinking.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I used to have preference for the gender of my baby when I was trying to concieve and I used to answer friends when they ask me which gender I prefer. After I got pregnant, I gradually realise this is not important anymore as long as my baby is healthy because honestly, even though already pregnant, every month is still an uncertainty. Every scan makes me nervous. When I hear that all is good for me, that's the thing that makes me feel truly relieved, not the gender of the baby. Now when friends ask me what gender I prefer, I tell them doesn't matter as long as baby is healthy because the fate already has been decided and it's not fair nor up to me to decide which gender I would like my baby to be. Girl or boy, it comes out from me and is a product of my hubby and me and we will both love him/her with all our heart, what does it matter whether it is a girl or boy? I'm also starting to feel annoyed by such questions by friends because girl or boy, you can't control. I've also learnt never to ask this stupid question to my friends who are trying to concieve because it's a pointless question that can never yield a good answer.

    Prayinghard, dont't give up, I understand what you are feeling. I had been feeling very down for one year until the miracle happened. Maybe just take a break and get your mind off things for a while then start trying again. I believe it will come for you very very very very very soon
