    Dragontail, I turned to a fertility specialist after trying unsuccessfully for a year too. I'm glad I did. At first visit, he prob will ask you about your history, your conditions, how long you have been trying etc. Mostly very verbal to get all your past histories. He might perform a simple vag scan.

    little hamster - have you been exercising regularly? my traditional chinese medicine doc previously & also my gynae recommended me to do exercises for 1 hr at least 3 x a week. to increase blood circulation in the body. maybe you can also up your vit c intake so you will fall sick less? I did the running, vit c, lots of chicken soup & nourishing tong sui (chinese desserts). if you feel heaty, drink a lot a lot of water. also less stress! worry less! enjoy what's left of your peace & quiet before the baby comes!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    happilymarried: some of our friends here says it's accurate. not so sure

    I just happen to come across a website that says should eat more meat. I also dont't know what is the reason behind. but 1 thing I agree. the man should be the horny one when bd because it increases his manly genes. but that website also says should not bd 4 days prior to ovulation. I am puzzled by this because I thought Y chromosome dies faster so why can't clear the army 1st o.0

    I know that guy eat meat will have stronger boy armies, if eat fish, more girl. My boss has 4girls, he is a fish person

    My mum also say when she planning for us, she ate alot sour stuffs So in the womb will be too acidic n kill the boy armies

    Wow, the thread is moving so fast!
    Congrats Gabrielle! Super happy for you.

    Dragontail, I m happy for you that r hubby decided to go with your wish. I understand the hardship of endless of trying with disappointments.

    My menses is late for 2 days, but I dont think I will test cos I feel cramps
    will only test if its late for 2 weeks.

    Hmm but dont't think it is accurate for me though...I dont't really take red meat...I eat a lot of fish...I ended up with a boy...

    I've read stuff like shettles method (dont know if o spelt correctly) time sex to get boy or girl..I think ultimately as long as baby healthy can ..

    Happily married - wow, hcg is very high!!! Mine was only 495 at 4 weeks. Congrats!!!

    As for exercising, my gynae said no exercising during trying to concieve. Only walking, yin yoga, Pilates, swimming. When I said "huh no running?", his reply was "you need to run away from robbers?". Maybe it is my age bah (turning 35) so hence his advice for me was more stringent. Even during 2ww also no sex and first trimester no sex too.

    Dragontail - really glad you has the heart-to-heart talk with your hubby and he understood your stance. It is really heartwarming to hear how both of you worked together and compromised to reach that final consensus.
    Awwww... Really heartwarming.

    I will pm you on my visits to both docs =)

    Tvh - hee hee boy or girl is determined by the man! Only the dude carries Y chromosomes. So hee hee does your husband have the same diet as you?!?

    I heard of the shettles method too. That's why i believe most babies these days are boys cuz ppl nowadays are planning when to conceive - unlike olden days. those fervently trying to concieve will know when o is arriving and will be extra hardworking during that time. Also iui will most likely produce boys for the same reason. I'm not sure for ivf since that is implantation outside of the womb. I also think that lifestyles these days are more unhealthy so those sperms containing Y chromosomes prob cannot survive so long... But erm just my personal pov!
