    Littlehammie, this you gotta ask yourself how you feel about the eys traditional chinese medicine so far? Do you feel any difference?

    This is my very personal experience and thoughts, after going through traditional chinese medicine with 2 bfps (non viable) and now with fertility gynae (no bfp yet as you all know so I cant conclude the latter in a way).

    I feel dr wu had definitely helped me with the bfps. My first bfp was merely 2 weeks of her powder. Throughout many sessions with her, she has given me encouragement that I could conceive easily. But she is worried of recurring mc happening to me. As for my hubby, she said he is perfectly well weaponed.

    Now that I have switched to a fertility doc, I am scanned with fibroids (sinseh couldnt spot that). And hubby has sperm issues (my sinseh said otherwise).

    I am not saying these to imply dr wu is all wrong. I'm trying to put across that traditional chinese medicine and angmor medicine each has their department they are perfect at. I believe both can compliment each other most of the time.

    Now that I found out I have fibroids, the more I will put aside traditional chinese medicine because we do not exactly know what's in the powder that may aggravate them (doctor's advice ).

    Since there's just this much pulse reading can do (no eyes to our inside), I suggest all you ladies (whom have not) to for thorough scan first. Or even hsg (this is what I will consider next if I dont get bfp soon. Anything could have happened to my tubes all these months. Of course I will hear what dr chew say about that). And also encourage your hubby to perform SA. It's not just a woman's job ya know.

    When the results are out, consider your options to explore with traditional chinese medicine or angmor doc or even both concurrently.

    I think my trying to concieve journey hasnt been as long as most of you here. Therefore I truly wish especially those whom have been trying to concieve much longer than me to get the gift of bfp soon! I'm so late in marriage/family planning I just feel age is definitely a big hinderance for me. True that I dont feel I need to look like a 41 but inside my body, I'm surely aging faster than anyone of you! It will be such an amazing miracle if my body can create and hold a life.

    Goodo raku everyone!

    momomum - thanks! I will discuss with hubby and most prob head to expo to look see... but can't buy now.. too early.. I super scared I jinx things.. me worry wort...heh :s

    thelay - you seem very well prepared! 7 pieces of swaddle cloths! I like the baby cocoon! its very cute & cosy!

    littlehamster & ebichan - most impt is how you feel about the sinseh... you must have faith in her that she can help you. different ladies will have different feeling & judgement.... me & hubby didnt get very good vibes from ZXM (at paragon)...it was a joint decision to stop... but maybe she has helped other patients that I dont know of... so you r the best judge for your own body. open your heart to accupuncture & traditional chinese medicine herbs (for ebichan).. I was very scared for accupuncture becuz the needles are stuck in your body for 20 mins.. but I overcome my fear after a month or so... jiayou okie?

    happilymarried, I only got my baby stuff when I was in my 3rd Tri as I feel it's okie to buy as long as you know what you wanna get. dont feel jinxed or what, it's just that you will have more ideas what to get and not rush into buying. Go and see what the baby fair has and you can keep in mind so that in case you need to get, you know where to go. I will get like baby detergent, shower, and baby cloths for daily use as normally they will have some promo and it's quite a deal.... if not, I will shop online for baby clothes

    also I strongly recommend doing hsg for the wifey & SA for the hubby. why hsg? becuz tubes must be clear before natural conception can take place. otherwise its like hubby shooting into a big wall - sperm will never get to meet egg. if tubes r clear, flushing them will improve fertility too! SA is to see how good, moderate or bad the spermies are (if needed can take supplements). I believe no matter what age, be it 27, or 29 or 35 or 41 or 45... once trying to concieve journey starts & no bfp after months.. its very tough on the female mind.. we tend to think if we are malformed (I used to feel bad about my body) or did something go wrong with our bodies... so why not get it scanned first instead of wasting precious months? sometimes with just a bit of doc help... success is just the very next month!! dont give up & jiayou! we will all be able to have healthy n happy babies!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Happilymarried: high 5! I also not into eys traditional chinese medicine hahahaha

    Littleham: where do you stay? If west you can try my traditional chinese medicine doc. I use to have erractic bbt n after seeing him for few months I feel the change. N my bbt becomes "ideal". Though I have a MC with him. Probably I smoke or smth. (He says im only the 3rd one that has a mc under his patient throughout his traditional chinese medicine days lol). Aniway I find him good too. Walkable distamce frm.clementi mrt. But his waotong time is super super long. traditional chinese medicine really require you alot patience n time. Oh he wipl refer your hubby to SA and probably the ladies to scan if necessary too. N doing blood test for him to know the problem with you like what medicine you need more n what you need less.

    Oh got expo sales? Hmmm.

    Momomum.. Thanks.

    Happilymarried. I also didn't buy any baby things first tri and early second tri. But now I afraid I will feel tired to shop around at third trimester. Its not that I afraid jinx. I worried if I buy too early and something happen to baby, seeing those things that I bought earlier will make me upset.

    I ald feeling very tired. My fav place my lovely bed.

    I love online shopping.. That's one reason I want to have girl.. Girls things can shop a lot. But husband banned me to buy any more clothing.. I have to tell him sleeping bag is not cloth.. Its necessary... Lol

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hello!!!

    Tis been a busy busy day today. But it is phantom night!!!!!! The phantom of the opera is heeeeerrrrreeeee... Hope muffin enjoys it. Hahaha I am teaching him to appreciate jay Chou and musicals. 胎教 =p

    MissA - enjoy the break!!!! Hmm I think can explore the areas near the hotel?!?

    Littlehammie - oh go do something since af is here?!? May this cycle be a successful one!!! And ya - think traditional chinese medicine should be regular...

    Ebichan - I think see what traditional chinese medicine does for you. Maybe you no need acupuncture. I didn't do acupuncture - only take a series of med.

    Dragontail - show us painting if you do draw???

    Oooo - so apparently sleeping bag better? Hahaha but my Prince George swaddle how!!! =p

    I am used to seeing poo poo cuz I clear my dog's pee and poo papers. Hahaha. But sometimes I still have the gag feel if my dog's poo is smelly. You know what I fear? If I change diapers and suddenly muffin pees into my face!!! Boy mah - so I am wondering if I should use a cup to cup his missile when I change diapers...

    Ask you all - should I get confinement aunty for 2 months? I dont know if my old man will really help...

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    On traditional chinese medicine - me see dr wu. I also saw another traditional chinese medicine doc at raffles hospital once cuz recommended by my friend but personally I find dr wu more personable.

    I dont know if dr wu helped with my bfp but I would like to think so. I started seeing her in nov - thanks to dragontail's recommendation. But I do know after taking her med - I feel my body feels better - not so cold and I can poo easily daily. And no painful period cramps.

    That said - I saw both traditional chinese medicine and western doc when I was trying to concieve-ing. Very busy .

    But ya such things need patience and commitment. I mean I was faithfully seeing western doc every month.. Dr wu every week.

    Hello MTBs .. These are what I have learned from today's class

    1. dont't take ginseng during pregnancy and delivering. It make more blood loss. I think this will apply when you have menses as well.

    2. Ikan bills is good source of ion.

    3. dont't rub your stomach can cause contractions. When you apply stretch mark cream , apply it upwards

    4. Baby can drunk from the confinement foods with wine.
    5. For herbs to boil to shower, dont't use aluminium pots. It can tarnish the metal and not good for our body.
    6. For ppl like me, who can't sleep side way cos of baby kicking. Put pillow on your back and sleep 3rd side way position..
    7. your breast will grow 0.5 kg when you are breast feeding.
    8. dont't buy nursing bra until you are 37 weeks pregnant as you won't know what will be the size. And buy with 3in wide straps for good support.
    9. When you get back, change to side way first then use your arm to support and get up.

    There are many other Info's teaching you how to exercise during pregnancy and how to sit , stand etc.

    And they let daddy try on the vest which weight the same as 20 weeks pregnant.

    Now hubby know how heavy am I carrying.. Lol..

    Thanks Happilymarried! Looks like 2k savings from materni t21.

    Poohy, dr wu can be chatty if you start to ask her questions. I usually get to chat with her quite well (but not too long as I know there are a long queue outside!).

    Littlej, come back and tell me what you think of the Phantom! I kinda worried for you because mbs theatre seats are not meant for being too comfy, let alone with a big tum tum! Did muffin dance to it??

    Didnt get to paint as I realised 9pm tv was screening a french film. It's called Intouchables. Love love it. I hardly can sit still while watching tv but this got me glued totally.
