    the second estrogen surge makes temps dip for just 1 day apparently. estrogen and progesterone together are needed to build the lining. so it's a good thing. it's just the fluctuation between prog and estro. your temp should go up again tomorow

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Wa busy morning. . Haha. Talkong about watching shows I heard my grandma says during first trimester not allow to watch shows like lion eat zebra those animal shows that prey each other.. :/

    And for bird nest cant eat during 2ww and 1st trimster? Hmmm.

    For those estrogen prostrogen I think better to have blood test so you know which one of the homones is too high n which is too low so you can know whaf food to avoid etc

    Tricky I have been temping for about a year and gosh I never knew about this secondary estrogen surge. Me noob. Thanks for enlightening. I googled and found out this also affects your CM. No wonder yesterday and today I am feeling wet down there. Prior to yesterday, my cm was quite thick.

    Gnissim, huh more test to do? Dont want can? Hhehe I dont think I ever wanna go too deep into trying to concieve.....

    Gnissim I have never done blood test for trying to concieve before. Actually I did ask hubby after this cycle, wanna see a gynae or not. He says no dont want. He always thinks we should just go with the flow when it comes to baby making. At this point, we are letting nature taking its course.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    guess this month really no good month for me...sigh...work also got issues. sigh

    happilymarried- no worries about the birdnest...take it as tonic now. just that pple discourage birdnest during early trimester as end up always vomit out due to ms and take bird nest is a waste of $ since baby not absorbing...and maybe also coz baby lung not developed yet..bird nest may irritate the lungs?
    I took it 2nd trimester onwards for good complexion for baby.hahahaha


    by way ...any vitamins to recommend for guys to increase their sperm count?

    poohy - thanks! I shall just stick to chicken essence also since I love the smell & taste.

    for vits for men to improve sperm, since I start trying to concieve & hubby went check up, she prescribed CoQ10 daily and centrium silver (age 60+) for him. he was so sad because he thought he is really lousy. I told him its just more vitamins for his army to look better. also he isnt blessed like me cos he has a hard time swallowing the big pills. sometimes he deliberately forgets to take. over the course of coming 1 year, his army improved by 1%.

    tricky - thanks for sharing! I never read about this 2nd estrogen surge until today.

    interestingly, this dip in temp is also called a implantation temp dip. so there is still hope!

    haha.. not 60.. he was only 31 at that time. sigh. but maybe body inside like 60 yr old man cos work stress, no exercise & little veg & fruits? I guess centrium silver has higher content of each vit.. hmm I never did compare to normal centrium.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    poohy, the supps that my gynae gave me when trying to concieve contains vit D and co Q10 too...these 2 are not normally found in men's multi-vits...we got lucky during the first month of consumption...my gynae mentioned not many supps offer vit D inside too and you have to take supps if you are not exposed to the sun daily....i guess that helped us....of course, not forgetting vit E and zinc too...

    That's good to hear! That means your chances of getting a baby is very good!

    for the sperm to meet the egg depend a lot of factors...i went for hsg that time and both my tubes were very clear and many ppl said after hsg, you would be very fertile for the next 3 months...but i didn't immediately get pregnant after hsg too....but the fact that your tubes are all clear means you have a very high chance!

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hello. The doc I saw who helped me with my bfp is dr Peter chew at Gleneagles. I like to think he helped cuz he did this womb massage, then he gave my hubby tentex (herbal vits to help improve sperm motility ie herbal Viagra) and also gave me a vit, and also gave us dates to bd. I struck jackpot that month.

    Dragontail - i can also understand where your hubby is coming from ie all things baby making should be natural without medical intervention and tests. That said, not that I wanna scare you ok. Just telling ya FYI. My hubby also had the same thoughts as your hubby. It took me forever to convince him to go for a sperm test.'eventually why he agreed was because of my colleague's story. Her gynae strongly encouraged her to conceive to lessen the reoccurrences of something (I can't remember what the something is - but it has something to do with the fact that pregnancy hormones will help suppress the reoccurences). Her gynae also encouraged her hubby to go for a sperm test which he did. The results of the hubby's sperm test was bad and the shape was not good. In short, gynae said the hubby's sperm quality was 1/10 and said if she were to successfully conceive with hubby's sperm, the baby will have an extremely high chance of a dear son baby and/or high risk pregnancy and/or deformities. This was only the reason why my hubby was convinced to go for a sperm analysis. Because we didnt wanna take the risk. So after that, that was when he decided ok maybe medical science and advancement are there for a reason(just like epidural was never heard of in our mother's time but it is so common now). Anyway, that's my story.

    Quincy, good news that your tube friends are A-Star! Now that you're cleared, and still puzzled why not successful yet, thought of having your hubby checked too?
