    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Dragontail - I have never taken the booster and jabs so I dont't know how to interpret that.

    from what you wrote above - it feels like you're somewhat hopeful (bbt still up). yet I guess perhaps what you're trying to do is to expect the worse (so it doesnt hurt so much if af comes) so you are thinking of all this what you're going to do. And to reinforce your current mindset - you decided to test.

    As I mentioned - I dont't know if I am the right person to say this. But I reckon the booster shots may have played tricks on your body so what you experienced last cycle may not be similar to this cycle. I mean - last cycle was the first time your body received the treatment so kena "surprised"... This cycle your body may he attuned to it.

    If I were you - I would forego the hpt. I mean - what i did was to Wait with no testing and no further analysis of the symptoms and expect af will come... I tested hpt one day before af's expected arrival cuz I was due to fly off on af day for an intensive shopping and walkabout one week trip in Taiwan with hot springs etc. If I wasn't going to fly - I would be wearing pads and play the waiting game.. Dum dee dum dee dum.

    I know it is hard to wait but well- think about it -
    you already know what you're going to do if af comes - book yunan. You also know what you're going to do if af doesn't come - see a doc.

    Hope you aren't frustrated at my thoughts. Just my personal feedback on what I'd do . Take each day as it comes. Just for today - deliver your mooncakes, go home eat dinner, tell hubby you want a hug and you love him, and have a good zzz.

    ahh dragontail- you drank coffee late yesterday? must relax prior to sleeping...and dont tink of work. soon soon, few days will past and you shall test! excited for you...=)

    i'm also sleepy sleepy..my colleague saw me this morning and ask' huh you never sleep well '...i was like 'how you know'? haha...apparently i looked haggard and tired. Drank coffee and now after lunch, the Zzzz monster is here again.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    dragontail - yes, what is 2-3 more days? by the time mooncake festival is here (this thursday) you should roughly have an idea if af is coming or not. hugs hugs. stay hopeful, as is your hubby and all of us here are for you you've always been positive and encouraging for us all and all this while, so please dont't give up as well. mooncakes are rather heavy so try to take breaks okay!

    caffeine wise, im taking drinks like teh-o ping, coke and lemon tea everyday.. simply cant give it up! so far so good i guess! cant wait to see gynae on 28 sept to confirm chop girlgirl!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    but i drink milo every morning...didn't know there's caffeine but i suppose the caffeine is in trace amounts compared to coffee? i've been drinking milo since the start of my pregnancy becos i just can't stomach milk....i can't stand the taste and smell

    even now, i'm still drinking tea like ice lemon tea and iced green tea....i only try not to touch coffee...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    wah ladies...dont drink so much coke and lemon tea during pregnancy . they got a lot of sugar inside....no good no good. In fact black coffee as long as not those kopitiam coffee, ie drink only those instant coffee, it is much better . Less strong and yet you get your caffeine fix. Sugar content also lesser than lemon tea bah.

    dragontail- just kaypoh...was there a temp dip for you in bbt? got dip then its good chance issit?

    Poohy, I think my head was occupied with work last night. Very brain active though body in bed!

    Congrats jojo!

    Ladies, actually I thought I have given up hope this cycle because of my af crampings (now still have). But my hubby keeps reminding me no witch means we still have a little hope, no matter how tiny it is. Today is 16dpo. Last cycle, my af came on 18dpo. Temp dipped on 18dpo then. My temp still high today. Why my dpo is so long is surely due to the booster shots. My very last shot for this and previous cycles were the same on 13dpo.

    Actually my hubby was a little teeny weeny not happy with me because I kept talking about what I wanna do or travel to where or this and that as if af is already here. He said "you havent even got your mense. Why give up hope already? Why think so much? ". Oops kerna scolded :P I guess I should be sensitive to his feelings in first place because he is always positive and hopeful every cycle but I was rude to crush it when this cycle has no conclusion yet.

    Therefore I told myself to shut up till af comes. And I actually poas on 15dpo, ie yesterday. The cheapie was stark white. I am confused because my last booster was last Friday and by right I should still have hcg 2 days later. Previous cycle, I did poas a few x to see how long my hcg took to dissipate. 3-4 days after a booster, I still did get super faint line. All my boosters are same dosage.

    Ok I guess never quite mind about what I've just shared. I just wanna know is it that 15dpo with bfn means I'm out this cycle? 15dpo so late already right? I think I mentioned before I have not much reaction to the booster shots except for weird cramping. But past 3-4days, my boobs sore and upsized like mad. I never get sore boobs (nor bigger boobs) nearing af. Maybe the booster shot finally decides to give me something more.

    Just hope to hear what you ladies think about what this poor old lady is going through. Heehee.
    Dragontail, though i know nothing about bbt.. as mentioned each cycle give differents signals.
    I tink i did mention in forum that after my d/c i have never encounter sore boobs since then.. but from a week before my af was due.. i have sore boobs till now.
    Using of guardian hpt give me a neg results on DPO12 and DPO14. I tested on the day my af was due using clearblue digital and it was +.

    Jiayou and dont read too much into the symptons as you always advise.. hehe..

    jojosnake: my gynae always advise me to visit GP for normal medication instead of getting from her because its cheaper and the same. Just need to mention to your GP that you're pregnant.

    Tvh - you are back! How are you feeling?

    Happilymarried - hope scan went well?

    Dragontail - how is mooncakes delivery? All done? Go have dinner and hug 老公!

    Someone did iui today right? How was it?

    I just realized my workplace will be affected by f1 road closures starting 18 sept. I feel like telling my boss that I dont wanna come in cuz what if my waterbag breaks in office and there are no cabs?!? Even if I drive - I have to park elsewhere too and anyway- if my waterbag breaks I can't possibly be driving right! My hubby said he can drive me but he is also afraid if anything happens he might get caught in a jam. I have an impt meeting with my boss and his boss on Thursday but I wanna ask if I can dial in instead...What do you all think? Will my boss accept this reAson? Do you think i am abusing this pregnancy??

    Littlej, your reasons are valid . Dont see anything wrong with it. R they willing to help or do anything if you go into labour? Minimise risk . Maybe you shld start your maternity ? Or r you planning to work till you pop!? O_o

    I m sorry that I come here to complain again.. I m so tired with work. Mentally and physically. .. thinking should I take early leave. Now I m in 32 weeks. Another 8 weeks to go.

    But I feel quite bad on my team as we are in critical stage and not enough manpower.. feel bad towards my boss too.. I think my boss is the most kind boss in the world.. but he cant help me either cos project is urgent and limited manpower..

    I have not enough sleep plus so many problems on site.. but compare to a few colleagues who only have a few hours of sleep. I consider lucky ...

    Sigh.. littlej.. I envy your energy level.

    mother in law cooked super yummy dinner today. She is not working today. She made pig stomach soup. I had a sip and although it tastes really delicious, I cant make myself have a bowl as I just cannot get the fact out of my head that it has intestines inside (never like intestines of any sort). She reminded me again "next time you have to drink you know?". Hee next time then say.

    And I suddenly remember about what she cooked last night for us too. There was a yummy steamed herbal chicken and I asked her what was in there. She said got dang gui and pao shen. Tian !!!! No wonder I couldnt sleep last night. Lol super potent dish.

    Littlej I still have one more round of delivery tomorrow and I'm done. Yay.

    I must say your reason is totally valid and I feel dont take the risk. It's no joke being stuck in traffic jam. Even though you can take detour(since so many road blocks), it may take 3x the time needed to get to the hospital. I know that your boss is a pro-family man. He will understand I am sure. No abuse here . It's serious stuff!

    Happilymarried!! Hope baby waved back at you today. Any baby porn to satisfy the ladies here?

    Hehe yup...finally finished my project...I can slowly relax and wait for my baby to come out...at least less stressful now

    I'm feeling very uncomfortable already. Stomach too big, I feel very breathless and I feel so heavy. My digestion also very affected. My tummy feels as if it is about to explode.....

    Littlej, it is anytime for you now right? Finished packing your hospital bag? I'm very excited for you...rem to update us if you r gg into labour!

    We r entitled to childcare leave this year. I'm planning to take the first 8 weeks of maternity, go back produce baby cert and apply childcare leave then continue the rest of my 8 weeks from there....total 17 weeks break!!!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    dragontail, i dont bbt but i guess i can help in the other area of booster jabs.. i think your 5000iu of hcg jab could have been washed out from your body (may be gradual). (5000iu isnt a lot i feel, my usual is 10,000iu i think). But you see the thing with cheapies, until the stick records a certain amout of hcg, it wont be able to detect small amounts. So, either your body has metabolised the 13dpo last jab, and/or your body has not produced enough hcg to 'light up' the cheapie (15dpo a bit too early )...either way, like what your loving hubby said, dont give up hope until the red witch comes.. we all have hope every cycle. This is life isnt it? We are always working towards our goals, and if we feel tired, our goals can change a little bit, or take a little detour before we come back and start afresh after a recharge! the boobs do seem like a tiny sign tho.... =)


    tricky, littlej, let me know if you all start a facebook for this thread!! i wanna jiayou for everyone here!


    jojosnake! congrats!! hope you recover from your flu asap.. as for gp, just inform them that you tested positive hpt.. they will know what meds you can take and cant take..


    mamamag, rest well after your iui! no heavy lifting and keep tum warm to aid implantation! =)


    thelay, i also admire littlej's stamina and energy!! my legs feel like jelly now when i walk/stand too long... i think you must rest more... cannot compare to team mates who are not preggy... its different when preg and not preg... we do what we can at work.. but we are not made of steel...
