    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Dragontail, Poohy, Gabrielle and all on tww - lil' muffin is kicking baby dust your way!!!

    Missy10 - eh miss, no bd during first trim! At least, that's what my first gynae advised me... so perhaps it is a blessing in disguise he was intrigued by candy crush. Anyway, hubby said he was worried for you by your heavy breathing right so rest assured he cares. I dont't think he was complaining but he noticed so that means he cares. And I think he noticed the tummy not cuz it is fat but cuz the lil' tummy now stores a lil' human being so he is most prob amazed... So dont't be worried and sad ok? Look at it positively! happy mama = happy baby. Btw also think bigger boobs which may excite your hubby when you are in second trim (and also the trim when you can have hanky panky!)

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Missy10, yes got temp rise

    I feel the man sees his wife differently when she is preggie. I dontít think he can look at her the very same as before. But I certainly dontít think it is anything physical (tummy or fats or stretch marks). Itís more like he looks at her as the mother of his child. I feel the sexual arousal doesnít quite work the same anymore. Same both ways. But doesnít equate less loveÖ dontít feel sad Missy10. Your hubby not turned on now because youíre at a fragile state! Thatís love mah. I rather heís not turned on at this point! When I had BFP, I actually felt very loved (normal days he also very love me l.a) because my hubbyís actions speak louder than words, sex or not.

    Littlej, my hubby woke up this morning and asked ďhowís your temp this morning dear? Need to do homework tonight?Ē. I did tell him if my temp didnít rise this morning, then can BD tonight. But physically I dontít know he can or not!

    Hahah envy! Can fill up non padded lacy bra. Dream come true :P

    Yay thanks! All the best to the 2ww ladies. I think littlehamster too because I know we have similar cycles

    Dragontail - 4?!? Heels clicked, hands up - salute. Heels clicked, hands down - 90 degree bow. Awesome!!!! I think me and my old man can do the opposite - 4 consecutive days (and more) of no hanky panky. He already complained about 4 x alternate day bd, saying his poor brother hurts!!! Bleah.

    MissA - ya dragontail was right!! Hahah I put on 5 kg during first trim. Horror of horrors! And now in my 21st week and I put on 8kg in total!! Seriously my hip and butt are starting to look like Jabba the hutt =( Anyway I think 2 kg sounds reasonable. Oh, time flies ... Before you know it, second trim is here... For me, I find it quite scary that I'm now halfway through the pregnancy... *gosh*

    Btw I need to announce this - I can now fit into those no-padding, lacy bra - so happy (cheap thrill i know!)!!! Ok one more size up to my desired C cup. =p
    wah....i only put on 1.5kg and im in my 17wks+..but gyane say all is good when i see him yesterday...

    lalagal, I agree not to use too many trackings on this trying to concieve. Use just what's clear to you. I am afraid I cant really read the small charts. Sorry![/QUOTE]

    No worries, Dragontail! Me too figuring out if my charts shows any weird signs...sigh...

    Lishan, somehow the supplier threw in disposable mini cups when I ordered them. These strips do need a little reservoir for dipping. The gmarket link doesnt provide right? Hmmm maybe can go those ja lung shops see can get small disposable cups or not.

    dragon: not sure if the gmarket seller provide or not, will check with them, otherwise i'll just buy disposable cups like you mention.
    but i'll prob get both the strips and kit from them, strips for home use and kit in when im in office. otherwise my colleague see me bringing cups to the toilet, like so weird. lol

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hahah good idea Lishan. Imagine you sneak out some plastic cups from your office pantry to toilet.

    Littlej, as for the long weekend plan, since tomorrow is Vesak Day, we will go to the guang ming shan temple to pray tonight. A yearly event for us. Tomorrow morning we are catching up with his uncle whom has flown in from States (he is my courier man when I order USA online stuff :P:P). Then wash car (I forgot to put this in my hate-list on chores), then go get fresh flowers for my room. I love the feel and smell of flowers in my room. Then Sat and Sunday will be impromptu! How about you?

    morning ladies,

    ladies, do you often have ovary cramps on both sides ? is it common to O from both sides and if so, would the temps be raised ?

    Tricky, yesyes looks like this thread is getting more on preggie topics. It's a good vibe!

    Usually my o cramp comes from left only. If both sides, maybe it means both ovaries are popping eggs? (Wild guess). Actually for this month, I didnt get any o pains. I still wonder if I did o or not, despite the temp rise.

    MissA, I also used to pluck armpit hair. It took very long because I have dense hair there! Ya also super cockeye after that. Until my sis gave me an epilator and my goodness all it takes is 30seconds to clean one armpit!

    MissA, you want to try cotton on dresses for the time being? They r not expensive and can last you till 20 over weeks....I find them very comfy. Right now, I dont't look pregnant nor slim. I just look like I ate too much buffet. This is the in between stage where you have to contend with ppl making remarks you look like you out on weight...

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Dragontail - do you know the 三步一拜 thingy? My mum used to do that. Hee hee - well, hopefully tomorrow will rain so there is no need to wash car actually I love washing car... I get this sense of satisfaction seeing all the dirt and grime gets scrubbed away. And hahaa can spray water. But now I dont wash... My car gets sent to the petrol kiosk or my old man washes (more of the former)... But I dont't feel that it's that cleaned when washed at petrol kiosk... Bo Bian. Me - guess what my old man is doing this long weekend??? Ding ding, he is playing golf 2 out of the 3 days!!! gosh, i do think i am a golf widow sometimes =( anyway - i will prob bring my doggy to a pet cafe tomorrow so she can socialize and i can continue with dan brown (this book not as exciting as the rest so taking me a while to finish the book)... Oooo! So what did you get from USA???

    MissyA - hahaha. Try the epilator - I suppose it is safe for pregnancy?!? But maybe go for underarm waxing at strip?! Must still maintain decorum even whilst pregnant. Cannot look like those ppl from my fav cty where you see a forest when they hold the handrails in the train =p hee hee. For me, I did ipl for underarms so thankfully now only have one or two stray hairs =)

    Clothes-wise, in addition to cotton on - can get from h&m, uniqlo, mphosis, mango and muji Too! for me, i buy those "leng leng" tops and rubberized drawstring pants so I can still wear after pregnancy. fyi - recently mango has this drawstring pants - very comfy and soft material and $59 - comes in pink, blue, khaki and beige. mphosis also has this structured pants which comes with those big rubber waistband (like maternity wear) and comes in black and grey and only $59 too. The only maternity thingy I bought so far is shorts cuz i cant seem to find nice can go gai gai drawstring shorts - they all look like boxers!! So I got a pair of shorts from spring maternity - $45. Oh gosh - I am such a shopaholic aren't I?!? =p

    Lishan - for me - the moment I started trying to concieve-ing, I went to see gynae to sort out if there any issues. Also sent my hubby for sperm analysis. Told this group before that gynae found polyps which blocked the sperms from entering the cervix so had those removed. Maybe I more kiasu .

    you read dan brown book? that day i was at the mph expo sale and they have quite a bit of his books and the launching of the new book. my husband used to read his books but stop as he felt that the recent books are not as good.

    My husband dont play golf but he work shift work (9pm to 9am) and sometimes he will work OT..so quite used to him not around and have to settle everything on my own..eg housework, changing bulbs, clearing sink chokes..hehhe..last time only me, myself and I..now i have my daughter to accompany me....

    i think sping maternity stuff is getting more and more expensive ..their nursing bra cost around 10 plus or 20 plus few years back..now the cheapest is 30 plus 40...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi ladies, just wondering if it is ok to exercise during the 2ww? I do pilates, jogging, zumba (sometimes). I just feel unhealthy if I didn't exercise but didn't want to have any "accident" during the exercise either.

    hi pretz, during 2ww, according to my gynae, no exercise at all, only short walks. I guess it also depends if you are trying to concieve-ing from ivf or naturally.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    thank you missA! i have been thru so many injections that my tolerance for pain is so good now - so sad right? I really hope this is it. I cant wait to test next week. Wonder how accurate the David brand test strips are, because i have bought some to standby.
