    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Thelay - in my hospital bag:

    1: bible
    2: my usual traveling buddy - the first soft toy my old man bought for me
    3: toiletries - lemongrass shower (see below), conditioner, shampoo, facial wash, facial toner, essence, moisturizer, eye cream, disposable contact lens, comb
    4: clarins stretch mark cream and ginger cream (see below)
    5: maternity pads (24 pcs - mothercare)
    6: disposable panties (5 pcs - mothercare)
    7: going home dress and non-disposable panty (I dont't know if I can take wearing disposable panties outside of the room!)
    8: nursing bra (2 pcs) and breast pads (8 pcs)
    9: 2 bottles of chic essence (heard can take before delivery to give energy for pushing)
    10: baby - wet wipes, one swaddle cloth, one going home outfit, 3 pairs of muffins, 1 pair booties, 1 cap
    11: impt docs - admission letter, ic, marriage cert
    12: chargers - phone, kindle, iPad, surface,
    Camera
    13: phone, kindle, iPad, surface,
    Camera
    14: socks (heard must keep feet warm and I am very used to wearing socks to zzz now)
    15: Havianas slippers (I dont't like to be barefooted in hotel rooms ESP bathrooms so bringing slippers to wear in the room and toilet)
    16: 2 pcs of button front night gown (make sure you bring one longer one - just in case single room not available and you need to share room, you dont't wanna look too sexy =p)
    17: jacket in case cold
    18: hair band (I have long fringe) and hair rubber band (I have long hair)
    19: considering if should bring light make up! Hahahah.
    20: emergency numbers list - pem agency number + contact person + name of aunty (I know my old man won't know), lactation consultants (in case I dont't know how to bf and need private help!), husband, mum, dad, sibling, pt maid (in case I deliver on the day my pt comes!), close team mate.
    - I scared old man's hp spoil / lost / no batt or he not with me or whatever so at least if someone looks through my bag then can see the list of numbers and call if there is an emergency! (My own HP has a pass code - company requirement so hahaha noone can access my HP if they dont't know the pass code!)


    I left it to my old man to pack his own stuff. I know there are women who help their husbands pack but for me - he packs his own luggage when we go traveling!!

    Lemongrass shower and ginger cream - I bought from this place http://www.mamaonlinestore.com/shop1/

    Lol.. Its my nighties.. My sis send me from mm.. Lol..

    Here is the PIC for FBI insentive.

    Not necessarily to register one month before. But if you do paper work done before your partner no need to spend all those on the actual day. So he can spend time with you.

    Glene also advice us to register earlier.

    What is the paper work that must do?
    My husband's English is very bad, I think he takes forever to read any English...

    My CB is when blinking, it means it has detected urine. Then let it sit about 3 mins then the smiley (or kosong) will appear. I thought CB works like that ?

    hello ladies!

    I just got back from a hearty dinner & I think I may have laughed with my friends too hard n too much... feel a bit crampy in the middle of my tummy... hmm.. I wonder if its caused by laughing or seat belt...


    thelay - very nice video!! your nico is doing gymnastics inside your belly.. hahaha! or is she trying to rearrange 'furniture' inside her current bedroom? so cute...


    littlej - wow.. so many things!!! thanks for sharing the list! very helpful.. your bag must be very big ? in the event you need to go hospital by yourself (a note to muffin - choose the right time when daddy is with mummy!) how to carry the bag by yourself?!

    littlehamster - haha.. I love to eat fried mantou... but now will think of your hamster! your hamster go kitchen look for more yummy food? when let to roan, my previous rabbit hop on my coffee & happily eat mentos!! can even shred bits of the paper away to get to the sweet.. aiyo.... I tried dig the mentos fr his mouth but he munch so fast!


    quincy - try the guardian and watsons brand opk as what the ladies adviced.. I never ever got double line with my cheapie opks becuz I dont have regular and good lh surge... my body is lacking in some hormones... so try all the different brands of opks around ok?

    Girls, thanks for the advices and cheering. I just had a chat with my bff too and my hubby. Dont want to think too much tonight. Just wanna hug my hubby and sleep together tonight. No sex involved. Haa.

    Holy moly littlej that's like one week hotel stay! (Of course I hope you will be out of hospital the next day!). Oh my...the time is finally coming. The big day when your (and your old man) life will be changed forever

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    C sect is 3 nights. Natural is 2 nights.

    Hahaha is it a lot of things? I got the list from my friend. i did ask one nightgown can or not - but she said in case leak or stain... so... 2 nights bring 2, 3 nights bring 3.

    Hmm - I managed to fit everything into a sports sac large weekender. And still got a lot of space =p

    Ok I may decide between surface or ipad. Still wondering if possible to put face moisturizer etc but erm I thought should bring just in case face too dry then got wrinkles . Aunty here 35 years old so very conscientious about skin care =p hahaha - dont know if make up needed!!! Maybe just bring an extra large pair of shades =p

    Oh I will also be leaving all jewelry at home - no rings, earrings, necklaces etc.

    Hahaha happilymarried - I tried lifting the bag without all the electronic equipment - still can lift . Hmm I suppose worse come to worse I will ownself call cab to hospital and old man can bring my bag after? Actually hmm I wonder if waterbag break and old man in the middle of traffic jam and tis a rainy day then can I still slowly wait for him to maneuver out of jam... Or do I call a cab ... But what if got no cab since raining... Hmm - reminder to register for uber.

    Tricky, good to hear all's well. Can eat longan as it's not a cooling fruit. So long you're taking it in moderation like you said then it's totally fine.

    I'm on gonal f for just a week. Seeing this fertility specialist for 3months.

    poohy - lemongrass is what I read on internet... I just take it as unsafe... not sure if true... but if you need a drink to relieve thirst or on hot day, try 100plus?

    poohy & dragontail - when on stimulation using injections, yes the monitoring needs to be frequent in order to 1) adjust dosage according to growth 2) do not miss egg size in case eggs grow fast.. if eggs grow too big, cycle will be abandoned - waste time, $ & pain, so I pushed on...


    dragontail - I really understand how you feel... I bought pen after pen after pen... with each pen, my heart sank lower n lower.... I got more withdrawn especially from nosey & insensitive relatives who kept on asking... but 1 thing in my heart... I saw hubby's want for a baby... he kept saying its ok if its just the 2 of us growing old together.. sweet of him but I could see thru him as im like a worm in his tummy... I know him better than he knows himself... luckily silently, I had my never say die spirit...

    if traditional chinese medicine worked for you back then... I'd say why not continue with traditional chinese medicine concurrently with fertility specialist? pls dont mind me for suggesting (sorry if I offend you! I dont mean to) why not pop in to dr loh seong fei's clinic (Thomson Medical Center or novena clinic) to seek 2nd opinion on the fibroids? (or was it polyps you have?) anything taking up space in your womb may hinder sperm in a way and/or baby's grown n space... I also recommend hsg to rejuvenate the tubes - even if not blocked, you will become more fertile. these are not ART... I dont want for you to go down ART as I personally gone thru it & its traumatic as hell... maybe you can consider the above during the next 3-6 months window period you give yourself to try... i know dr loh is pro natural conception..

    I know to take this big step in life is scary & not in line with your natural plans... but to not exhaust all natural means (try 2nd specialist dr loh or hsg)... I am afraid of regret in future.... if you exhausted all natural means... you can tell yourself you have tried within your beliefs n means n life has other good things for you to treasure & enjoy....

    we r here for you, to listen to you & cheer you on when you r feeling down n sad....

    Happilymarried - Me only had a mini bulge at 16 weeks (like eat too much then pops the tummy type) but I look like a hippopotamus now. If not for my growing butt (where i believe most of the weight gain went to) - I could still have fit into my old jeans. So dont't worry too much. But anyway - you should start taking photos so you can track the growth of the tum progress. dont think it is narcissistic !

    How tall are you? I am about 163 and to be honest, to accommodate my hippo tummy my car seat is now leaned more back and pushed back a bit more. Even my old man was surprised at how leaned back the seat was. Hahaha.

    Good morning ladies.. You all sleep so late.. I have not enough sleep even though I slept early.

    Littlej.. have not't choose hospital yet. Most probably should be glene. Since my Gynae based there should be easier for her to visit me. I asked her which one she prefer. She said glene. I raised my concern about early labour. She said no need to worry and if its early,they will switch hospital.

    BTW. Your little muffin move a lot also.. I feel my daughter very restless..

    Happily married.. Photos.. Photos.. Hee Hee..
