    actually commonly people will think decaf is ok. but decaf is just as bad.
    come to think of it, coffee beans are chemically treated for it to be decaf.
    i am such a wet blanket muahaha.
    but just let you know i used to work for coffee factory as purchaser

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    gnissim, your bump is so cutie one! Still very a demure bump

    Rav, yes my mother in law also doesnt quite approve I drink tea. Liang. Hee to me, I have been avoiding tea for so many months but no bfp. Not that I will start to smoke or party till 3am... I just think now I'll go a little easier moving on. Like my same motto as you, moderation.

    Shez, so you mean if you have smiley today, you will BD today and Tue and Thur? Sounds good! However, I'm thinking maybe BD on Wed instead of Thur?

    Ok this cycle I am a bit blur (Ok since I'm paying Dr Chew so I entrust him on the BD dates). I had a smiley on CD20. By right, I should BD on that night right? But he said to BD on CD21/22/24. My last BD before all these was CD18. But maybe because I am on trigger shot so that supersedes everything else, like the smiley.

    I would say this round our BD program (Ha!) is different. Me and hubby usually just clear a 3-week old army (since last ovulation) and then we wait on for fertile phase to catch eggs. This cycle, we sort of diligently BD based on given dates. So we had sex on CD8/12/15/18. Not just clear army one time only. Hopefully this means the army will be more conditioned for catching eggs.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    LOL Littlehamster

    Gnissim cute bump pic!!!
    I like it that we are sharing bump pics and motivating everyone here

    Hmm thanks everyone
    yes I think I will stop most things during this early phase of pregnancy. including raw breakfasts (I love green smoothies) and coffee

    Im around 4 weeks I think. Apart from my painful (feels like rocks on my chest) boobs, I feel really good and not tired.
    Is there anything I should be expecting in the next couple of weeks ?

    Oh and today I dropped by the central library to look up a reference for work,
    In the general lending sections there are some books on fertility
    Pregnancy related books dont seem to be there, mostly in the neighbourhood branches

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I recently put on weight so if I dont suck in my tummy, I also look preg. Oops.

    littlehammie, once I get a positive, I stop opk. When did your temp get a hike after a smiley this cycle? For me, CD20 got a smiley and CD23 my temp raised.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    was at tpy shuang lin temple. hubby never ask how to pray to zhu sheng niang niang.
    we both just pray to all the deities there =.=
    i ask the staff for red eggs...apparently eating the red eggs is not a compulsory thing
    the staff just made me think it's just a speculation on the internet

    Hey dragontail, that does sound like a good plan too, those dates. For us, we have not't really bd prior after my AF coz my work has been bz with after hours dinner. But hubby been DIY-ing to clear his armies diligently. Yaya chan did say even if non fertile period he should clear his army every 3-4 days so we have been doing that in our way. Hahahaha

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Dragontail, i know which durian stall you're referring to, th one next to a prata place, near fragrance hotel. his durians are good and always sell out very fast !

    Ebichan, I bought the contented pregnancy book by Gina Ford, recomended by my EDD facebook group. seems like a good book.

    happilymarried, your post about your family get together made me angry for you !! I really can't stand when relatives become so kaypoh and insensitive ! I'm a bit harsh and I always tell them off. then no one dares tell me anything now..snake or horse, boy or girl is just fine. the health of the baby is all that matters.

    today I feel so blehh, went to crane street prata this morning. the prata was fantastic but got caught in nausea and feel bad ever since...and have to go meet friends soon for BBQ. the girlfriends are preparing sangria for us but Im bringing my juice. I think I might have to let the news out as they'll wonder why in turning the sangria down

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Whahhaa I sound so military like whereas the rest of you believe in moderation. Oops =p but hahaha that's me - if I decide to do something, I'd just go all way out to do it. Very extreme.

    Gnissim - still so slim!! Nice nice!

    Dragontail - wow many bd this cycle! And goody you captured doc's dates. Well - erm if doc says so then follow .

    Shez - sounds about right. Similar to what doc chew gave me. But he gave Dragontail a different diagnosis as in bd the day after though. So erm... Guess up to your judgement. Oh you will wait till cm then test ... Me will refer to the date on cb website.

    Thanks ladies! I think my bump small small too. But my friend who dont know im preg saw my ytd can see that im preg. Haha.

    Quincy: eh you go pray zhu shang niang niang? There got a auntie will teach you . The auntie is alqays seating at the place where the tiger god is. Did you manage to get red eggs? There is actually a set of praying papers for zhu sheng niang niang. then you n hubby together pray. Tell name blah blah blah. If got eggs there each grab 2 n eat otw home. (While walk out temple or smth). I did pray too. So I will return when my baby turn full month.

    Wah! Durian talk!! Mine r from simei.. very near the mrt.. in fact those staying in east side.. when mrt doors open at simei.. can smell durian smell!! Ours few weeks back was $200 for 6 pax (王中王 type.. seller said better than 貓山王 dont know how true..) but with left overs for the next week.. heh.. it was bitter n slightly wet think because mid season.. would be dryer if we bought start of season.. anyway durians high sugar.. must be cautious to eat little bit at once!

    Littlej - you r a horsey? That's nice!! you r my first horsey friend! My other horsey friends r guys.. & yes my baby's edd is within first few days of cny... M I having first horsey baby here? Gnissim & missy10 are due before 30 Jan ?

    Gnissim - wow!! you r skinny & your bump looks very nice! Bet you can still wear all your pre pregnancy clothes?

    Shez - royal jelly helps with cm... R you taking some? Cover base with 3-4 times bd sounds good!!


    Tricky.... Sangria is nice!! I used to drink so much of it while in Aussie... Hehe... But it's a small sacrifice ... If you dont't want to announce so early.. you can say you popped panadol for headache earlier n can't drink tonight... But I told my close friends before I told in laws..can't control myself... hehe...

    Tricky - yup.. feel like telling those relatives off... But afraid I will be on a roll n then can't stop myself... Haha... I guess I will monitor n see how bad it gets first...

    2ww ladies... dont't worry about putting on some cushioning.. cuz once bfp your appetite may change (may drop?) Or if you have nausea it's hard to eat.. padding is good for babies!

    Happilymarried, I'm not bothered by the weight gain I guess. I feel healthy that's more important. My first bfp I did lose weight (weighed even lighter than pre-preg)...gosh those nausea feeling really kept those food away.

    Oh what's the difference between the two (ivf) may I know?

    Dragontail - icsi is using super fine needle to carry a sperm to shoot into the egg to fertilize it... techy name is Intracytoplasmic sperm injection... Haha super long ? This was what I opted for... $100-200 more I think....

    Normal ivf fert is using a dish n letting washed sperms swim around the egg n eventually 1 sperm will enter (strongest swimmer wins).

    Some choose the 2nd way cuz not too much scientific intervention. you must be thinking... Ivf already is intervention right? But some due to religious beliefs (nurses told me) they dont't want icsi cuz too overboard...
