    Tricky, oh your beta very high. My sis has two embryos implantated. So hopefully two made it.

    Poohy, I hope this news gives you the motivation if you're indeed decided for ivf!!

    This is the first ivf success story (ok in all frankness, this pregnancy is still early to be stable at this point) that happens among my loved ones. I think this surely gives some hope for me if I indeed decide to take this route. But it will be an expensive one (me no subsidy) and I still am not mentally prepared. So you go first . Hehehe.

    Ya trickly you reminded me of my hcg level when i was about 7weeks plus.. It was 44000plus, however it doesnt double when i went back 2days later.. It rose up to 52000plus only hence the failed pregnancy. And that time i was still having very bad morning sickness. so it is not necessary that having bad morning sickness means baby is growing well.. im blaffled

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Dragontail - CONGRATS ON BEING AN AUNT! and congrats to your sis too!

    Oh oh - i love holiday topics. Keep it rollin'! I love staying at Novotel in BKK too. Hahah so convenient. Shop shop shop, go to hotel dump the shopping.. then continue to shop shop shop. And around Novotel also got roadside stalls - yummy. I think Korea should be ok . Anhehaisayo....O-paaa... I have a colleague who's Korean and he's a good friend too. Let me know if you want me to ask him for tips?

    (hee hee - dont't tell my boss) me and my old man planning for a quick getaway before I head back to work in March. Probably a short beach trip to Lombok or something. Muffin will be with my mum for the 4 days. Some may say so cruel, leave the baby alone.. But I figured with baby's arrival - I'd be superbly busy tending to baby and being a cow - and may neglect my old man.. So I thought it'd be good to spend some time alone with my old man. Also, he has been very busy with work and usually we would go for a short getaway year end but since this year cannot.. so i told him next year Feb! He brightened up considerably when I said that... Sigh - Grown men are like children sometimes !

    Wahahah - yes yes, I will be the one who say "ready get set POP". EDD: 3 Oct.

    Thanks Rav - I got to client's place safely. Went to Nex for lunch and did a bit of shopping. Now home and doing work...

    BTW - I got the photos from my maternity photoshoot! Hee hee.. Quite nice . I mean, this photographer returned ALL photos (with editing) so there were about 150 photos in all. I ownself picked out about 50 nice ones. There were some shots I thought could be done better (angle, hair, lighting).. but well I can't complain for $300 for all photos. Also- the models weren't good . I am not that sort of person who can project that kind of 'sensual' or 'serene' look so I thought I looked funny in those pix with eyes closed.. Y'know - trying to look serene but I look as if I'm forcing myself to sleep :P Oh - and for my old man - the first many shots - all never smile or like forced half smile - towards the end then big smile (think he know ending soon so happy).

    Overall happy friday (so far)

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    oh dear jojosnake, sorry to hear that. apparently hcg levels for 7 weeks has to be 7000 minimum, your morning sickness must have come from sufficient progesterone levels I'm guessing. it's really scary to read that even morning sickness is not a guarantee of healthy pregnancy. but we have to keep positive !!!

    Crossing fingers it's double joy for your sister Dragontail

    Rav, haha please do so! Thanks...hope someday I'll be in the chart. But my hope is just running low...in half year I will be 42! This "fear" always rings in my head...like when I am in early 60s, my kid probably hasn't start earning his first buck! I find it kinda scary. And I wonder how my man is going to handle a kid and an aging wife at the same time. At times I dont feel like trying to concieve because of this. Hahaha I know today I think too much already!

    Wahaha littlej I find your photo shoot story very funny. Especially when your man is all big smile at the end. Haha! Oh ok thanks...I will know who to ask if I have korea holi questions.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I love holiday topics too!!
    I can't wait to go to Japan again in autumn
    But maybe no hot spring but can eat all the food!!

    Today I had my check up and I've passed another milestone!!! I heard the baby's heartbeat!!
    I am very happy of course.
    So will continue to keep fingers crossed for the next milestone.

    Thanks everyone so far for all the nice kinds words and concern.

    Am I qualified to spread baby dust? Or must wait until 2nd trimester then can?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Oh who was asking about private villa Jimbaran?
    I stayed at one in Jimbaran and also at Ubud. And a third forgot where ... long name.

    But the private villa was fantastic and came with private chef.
    It was non peak and I paid about 165 US a night (they count by villa not persons so that was nice)

    1 Bedroom Villas in Ubud

    there is a range there with different price options

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    dragontail, congrats to both you and your sis!! just fyi... on my 11dptransfer (3 weeks) my beta hcg was 1100+, then 18dpt (around 4 weeks), my beta hcg was 18800+. but that was at the start.. of cuz later i lost 1 at week 9... so not sure if my readings were a tell tale sign i was going to lose 1 baby or not..... oh & keep the tour discussions comin in!! they are fun to read =)



    poohy, if it helps, i asked my gynae about short n long protocol.. she said the whole medical field is moving towards short protocol... i did short protocol for both my cycles as my doc wanted to limit the no. of days i was jabbing serums into my belly... with long protocol more jabs.. cuz duration is longer... more serums needed, also means more $ upfront... for my, cuz i went private, all serums cannot deduct medisave... its only hospital egg retrieval you can deduct...

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    littlej, overall, did you think the photographer was good? i was thinking of looking for 1 to do my shoot (i hope everything is smooth smooth, i am still keeping my fingers crossed). and i recall you said yours was a lady photographer? I did think it its male, i will feel quite paiseh.. if he adjusts your clothes etc... i am not model material... so i think some editing is required... there are some places i come across, they charge extra for editing...

    And... hahaha your old man very cute ... at least you have the last few shots where the photographer caught him with big smile!! enjoy your hol next yr feb... well deserved hol with your old man.. but do prep your mum on everything about muffin!!

    it is a 13 day countdown for you!! gosh!! so close!! feeling so excited for you! =) double check your hospital bag & make sure all camera batt, video cam batt, hp battery packs etc etc all charged and packed! your old man may need chicken essence too if he's gonna spend hours with you in labour..

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hello!

    Dragontail - Whilst I think age factor affects trying to concieve - But hey - Doc said your eggs and lining all ok right? And Elizabeth Hurley also had babies much later... Plus my friends. So I believe there is hope, as long as you dont't give up. As for the how hubby is going to cope with you and teenager etc - Well, that's where he better honor his vows "for better or for worse" right! Anyway, l think you're not going to be one of those lao kok kok kind of 60 year old woman. That's why it's important right now to keep the body active and healthy so we all age gracefully and healthily. dont't want any osteoporosis hitting us at 50+!

    Happilymarried - I think the photographer is good for the price I paid - $300 for photoshoot + minimal editing for all photos (color correction and effects BUT no photoshop) + return of all photos. I used littlemissrabbit btw. For me - I wanted ALL photos returned - Just didn't want only a selected few. I also didn't think me and my hubby looked so terrible that we needed major photoshop edits. Price was also a consideration - I didn't want to pay so much cuz hahaha I'm looking a lil' plump now too :P

    Here are the pricing packages>

    A) White Room:

    Maternity Package $290
    1 hour studio session
    From a selection of photographs, you'll receive:
    4x 5"x7" prints
    1x 8"x12" print selected from one of the 5"x7"
    Soft copies of these 4 selected prints (3R resolution)
    There is the option to add a CD of all the 50-70 photographs per session, all with digital enhancement at 2250x1800px resolution (printable to 5R), at $880 additional per session.

    B) Bambini

    Maternity Session $180 (double prints on weekdays)
    1. Up to 1 hour studio session
    2. Three 5R and One S8R print
    3. Partner and one child are welcome to join free of charge.
    4. Return of web resolution softcopies

    Important Notes:
    Option to purchase softcopies of all good images at the following prices:
    * Low res CD (printable to 4R) - $180 extra
    * Medium Res CD (printable to 8R) - $250 extra
    * High Res CD (printable to >1m) - $350 extra

    C) LittleMissRabbit

    $300 Photography Package includes the following


    • 1.5 hour photography by professional female photographer
    • All High Resolution soft copies will be returned in personalised CD
    • Up to 3 change of clothings allowed
    • All photos will be post-processed and returned in high resolution (post-processed
    meaning with colour correction/ effects but without photoshop retouch)
    • Daddies-to-be are welcomed
