Yeah...nianie i can see the positive line... \^O^/
hi everyone!! have been a silent reader all along as well, I am also trying for a baby.. sigh.. honestly, i am bout to throw in the towel and admit defeat... its very very very tiring and frustrating.. i guess i am kindda old to be trying now (both hubby and i are 37 this yr..). And seeing my sister in law with 2 kids, sigh... therefore, i decided to write something here so as to garner some kindda morale support from you ladies.. i really respect you ladies here for all that you tried to do in order to get preggie, i mean traditional chinese medicine, OPK, pre natal pills etc, compared to most of you ladies here, i seem to be doing so little...
just want to share something here. I was tested bfp this july.. i was so so so happy and excited but alas the happiness was short lived, as it was a blighted ovum. can you imagined my disappointment? i felt like dying when i was told that it was not a viable pregnancy... then came the D & C in mid August... and rite now, i just lost all confidence and often wonder if i am going to be childless afterall...
my hubby was the bo-chup kind. He's not the if we got it, great! if not, well, itz aint the end of the world.. i wish i am like him but i am not. I mean i wasn't that baby crazy before till these recent years... sigh... i thought i had time you see... actually i am glad my hubby is not as anxious as me coz if he is, then i'll probably be darn stressed up, i mean i AM alrdy very stressed up with trying to have one. I really wanted to have a baby and seeing all these preggie mum-to-be when we go grocery shopping around my place, i was so envious and sad coz i keep thinking of the failed pregnancy...
Hi maqisa. ... dont give up...although I only started trying... let's jia you together!
Did you see a traditional chinese medicine? Or do anything special?
I believe the rest of the gals here can share their journey!
hi MXLO, didn't see traditional chinese medicine, but i am taking folic acid.. am considering prenatal vits too. will be taking some zhen when my af over, which is soon... afterwhich, i told hubby its time to chiong again. coz if i am able to get preggy during july, though it was a blighted ovum, i still want to believe that i am able to conceive... i keep telling myself theres still hope so i wont give up on myself... am considering a OPK clearblue digital with the smiley face, as i do not have ewcm which indicate ovulation...
also, i like to know what is pre seed?? does it help with cm? my cm is not a lot and i am very concerned and worried coz if cm is low, it will affect fertility..
Hi Maqisa, just to share my experience...i have been trying for around 1.5yrs..still no good news...everytime time when af come i was very disappointed..at times i really wanna gv up ...but luckily the ladies here share their experience with me that make me persevere on...
Currently, i'm taking GNC pre-natal pills and folic acid...and i also consulting traditional chinese medicine (Dr zou yu min @ AMK) too...and not forgetting bbt charting... =)
i might take evening primrose oil to improve cm... i read that EPO helps to produce cm which is impt for women who are trying to concieve... anyone has any opinions on EPO? i read that EPO may only be taken frm day 1 of af till ovulation then replace with fish oil coz EPO will cause uterine contraction... also, its comforting to know all you brave ladies here who are also dying to be mummy (like me)... pls ''talk'' here often and encourage each other and share all good news
hi Yukki, well, if you are not above 35 like me, then you should not be discouraged easily. i see you are doing all the right things and that's fab! sadly, i think age is a very impt factor so for pple like me whos already 37, gosh... i dont know... very tough i guess
Hi Maqisa...i'm hitting 30 this yr...can't considered young either...but i believe with faith we can achieve...hope you dont gv up too...
The worst ting about me is my health...i used to take too many cold stuffs in e past ...and slimming drinks for a period of time...not sure if it have adverse effects on me...
Yukki, to tell you the truth, i am a sucker for soft drinks. i hated all alcoholic drinks and i quit coffee about half a yr ago but somehow its very difficult to stop taking cold drinks... my mother in law who's normally not the naggy type was like saying i shld not take too many cold drinks (bad for womb etc) i know she meant well and i tried to cut down but somehow i would like forget at times and happily sipped them like no tomorrow...
Maqisa, so long you know you are ovulating (either from bbt or from machine scan), there's still a chance. Have faith ok.
Me much few years older. I'm not giving up (at least not yet). I believe things happen when we least expect it. I am hopeful but at same time leave fate to the hands of God (whichever religion you have). To me, life is short. Whichever way it turns out, we must treasure what we have at the moment.
But having said that, I strongly think you can try cutting cold drinks. I dont't really drink cold drinks but I have soft spot for tea. My sinseh last week suggests I stop. I have stopped for a week and I feel totally ok without tea. Just drink milo or horlick.
I have never taken EPO for trying to concieve.
Yes can try preseed. I did use before but no luck. However some ladies did use it and strike. You can consider. My fertility specialist did say can use it.
I read somewhere saying EPO affects fertility so I stopped taking it. I also take vit e but because I am taking conceive well so I stopped also since this conceive well includes all nutrients.
I am reaching mid thirties I have to say I am impressed with ladies here never give up attitude. ..
I have booked appt with traditional chinese medicine next week. I think better to chk to tiao our bodies....
Yes Maqisa..me also cut down on tea, coffee and cold drinks as me traditional chinese medicine sinseh advised cold drinks not good for the womb too...i tried taking milo instead or just warm water... =)
If you dont't mind - my personal piece of advice is, take each day as it comes.
For me - every time af arrived, I'll make sure I will do something extra next month. It gave me something to hope for and I know at least there is a next step. So as some of the ladies may know, I bought fertility books, fertility jade peanut, traditional chinese medicine, vitamins (royal jelly, vit e, multi vits, folic acid), monthly Gynae visit, saw new Gynae, cut down tea, cut down alcohol, wore socks to sleep, elevated ass after bd, hsg, fertility yoga, cut down vigorous exercise, got into this forum, IUI, walks every morning... Etc. every month af arrived, I will try something new the next month. I told myself that if I exhausted every single mean and still no bfp, at least I can safely say, "I tried my best".
A bit extreme but yes, I saw both traditional chinese medicine and Gynae at the same time too. I wanted the best of east and west.
And yes, as some of the ladies here know, I popped in sept. I would say, trying for a baby is tough (emotionally, mentally, physically) but it all preps for the pregnancy and baby's arrival cuz pregnancy and the baby also tests one's emotional, mental and physical strength. For instance, it is not encouraged to consume caffeine during pregnancy so by cutting down whilst trying to concieve - I didn't have any major withdrawal symptoms whilst pregnant. One can't take cold drinks after giving birth during confinement - by cutting down during trying to concieve also made it easier to adapt whilst pregnant and post giving birth.
My two cents =) baby dust to everyone.
(Oh and btw, I am not some nubile and fresh sweet young thing - I'm a sweet 35 year old auntie =p)
hello all, have been reading this forum off and on.. Special thanks to Gabrielle86 for the conceive well.
Me too, i wanna give up already. I m 36 this yr and i totally understand what Maqsia feels. I too went thru a chemical preg and a miscarriage earlier this year at week13. I still can't get over. I have been trying since 2010. Did traditional chinese medicine, folic, prenatal hits, royal jelly, no cold drinks and tea and coffee, wear socks etc for a really really long time and finally bfp this year and lost my baby. REally admire you ladies for your positive attitudes and "never-say-die" spirit! I wish i can be like you ladies and be strong.. anyhow, some random blubbering.
Mxlo I think it's good you're embarking on traditional chinese medicine. I'm sure it will do your body good.
Good luck to your next cycle.
Thanks every one on e tip for hsg... will remember to breath... hu si hu si...
Hi dragontail yes even my mum thinks so too becos she mentioned that becos I injured my lower back before so she said will affect fertility. Ask me see traditional chinese medicine then my frend also said the same thing. Like what littlej says do abit more every month when the af comes. My cycle has gone abit crazy, af still not here yet..
Just curious anyone believes in feng shui?
My inlaws engaged a FS master a year ago. Amongst other things, he has identified the "baby luck" corner. Now every room has a lil something ( jade/crystal/figurine/etc).
I also bought peanut jade for baby luck.
Personally I dont't go too over on FS (won't engage master if it's my own home ). More important is take care of our health to tune it to best shape for trying to concieve.
