i am not sure if gnc is not good. but if your doc says too high iron content better not take. blackmores conceive well gold (pink box) available in watsons/guardian
Going to grab a box from watsons later on
For me I take conceive well when that-c. Once preggie, I take the multivits from Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Those are cheap but provide good basic booster.
I always eat vits right after food. Anything much later I feel funny in my stomach.
The conceive well are sold at watsons. Not sure where else though. But look for big ones like Taka.
Littlehamster iron too high is not good? I always though even if excess our body can excrete them on its own. I'm only taking folic and ensure life..
no...too high in many minerals is not good. including iron. *flipping my sec school bio text*
too high in vit B causes big heart. too high in calcium causes widespread calcification of internal organs, too high iron causes tissue damage etc etc.
iron not soluble in water too. so not like vit B can easily excrete out from urine..
luckily i left half bottle of gnc prenatals.. conceive well can buy from john little? i got some vouchers need clear
darn. i just bought the gnc pre natals. ok i'm going to get blackmores when i'm back. going to stop taking gnc now..
dont think can get conceive well from jl. but jl can get royal jelly
watson sell hw much?
this webby sell $39
Blackmores Conceive Well Gold Caps 56
The first time my mother in law bought for me was only 25 during a watsons sale. After that I dont't see any sale anymore. Iirc, price is there about 39.
I just checked the Blackmores Conceive Well at Watson.. It's retailing for $46.
My goodness is that inflation? Dont recall it was that much.
Wah how to catch up??
I was taking GNC prenatals too until I read that the iron level is too high, that's why I switched to blackmores conceive well gold. There is alsono real need to take calcium tabs as calcium is not easily absorbed in he body as well. The most impt vit to take is folic acid, vit c and vit b12, and if you can, co q10 and fish oil. Anything extra is just an overkill becos it is impossible for your body to absorb so many things.
I am so glad I know you folks otherwise I will be blindly taking gnc pre natals.
I am on pre natal, vitamin e, royal jelly, folic acid and flaxseed which contains omega too. Too much?? And triflex for glucosamine.
Hahaa but I feel my complexion become better .
I only take folic acid, vitamin C and evening primrose oil. Actually not fond of supplements.. So even 3 pills is one too many. :/ think I have enough cushioning on me anyway.. Over nourished..
Actually dont know if traditional chinese medicine herbal stuff is actually medicine or tonic. All kinds of weird things in there... Dang Gui, white peony root etc.. I dont't even recognize half the names on the sachets.

i thought you should be taking the Blackmore for Pregnancy instead of pre-conception?
Pregnancy & Breast-Feeding Gold - Blackmores
the most i take is multi vit n royal jelly then 2 hours later take DOM/waist tonic. but who knows whichever of us manage to get the golden ticket n i'll b copying every bit that sister has been taking
i am taking quite alot of things too
traditional chinese medicine
Omega3 fish oil
raw Seeds and Nuts
i cannot take multivitamins because i will fall sick after taking
I dont really diligently pop vits for too long. I only like buy what I fancy at that point during my birthday month at GNC. Once finished I dont really top up. :P Currently I only take folic that's all. And conceive-well if I manage to pop by Taka tomorrow. Got my calcium from milk. And I'm always eating nuts. Plus my regular "por" soups from m-i-l.
Not Sure if you girls want to try doing this or already been doing this.
as i mentioned before that one T.C.M sinseh advised my friend to drink Chicken Essence 5 days after Ovulation, so as to aid implantation as well as to protect the fetus after implantation. He told her to make her Own homemade Chicken essense, if possible... If not, can also drink ready made ones.
Then i read from the other forum, a few ladies made their own homemade chicken essense to drink during 2WW and managed to conceive.
No Harm Trying...
you can try following the instructions in below Link to make Homemade chicken essense (SKIP the DOM step, its better to avoid taking DOM during implantation)
My Sugar and Spice » Blog Archive » Homemade Chicken Essence
and then CNY is coming.
cannot eat crab right?
and my beloved abalone, which is a type of shell fish. my sinseh tell me no shellfish. i dont know how to obey this 1 ((((
I just cooked Zhen soup to drink yesterday as recommended by Dr Su. dont know if it is a psychological thing but I feel I have more energy today *shrugs*
I used to take royal jelly but gave up cos been taking too much supps. Once pregnant, cannot take anymore. Same with evening primrose oil.
