    Yukki, I agree with you. If you have the intention of IVF as the last resort, then better save the subsidy for IVF. The costs for IVF is so much higher than IUI. However, I pray that you will success at IUI. Relax, think positive and eat well.

    For this cycle I've started something different (will continue through my ivf cycle) . I eat egg whites and drink chix essence on alternate days. Likewise for hubby. Until he did complain feel like puking from the egg whites already. Ha.

    Eat well ladies!

    Maq, how are you feeling?

    Soursop, not sure if this is clinically proven but my friend ate egg whites during egg stimming in ivf and she got preggie now.

    Generally protein helps to build cells and muscles. But in trying to concieve, it may help to produce more eggs. For men, it's believed to build more sperm, quality and quantity.

    So why not. We both dont't eat yolks anyway. We just hard boil and eat the whites only. But you can also do half boil if one prefers so .

    Sinseh did advice hubby to take more seafood during trying to concieve. Likewise, seafood is rich in protein.

    As for chix essence, it's a "heaty" food but not overly heaty. Essential to keep our body and womb warm. So I guess that's important. I give my man to drink too. It's just generally beneficial to man as well.

    Dragontail, that time my traditional chinese medicine also advice me to eat egg every morning but must be half boiled one. This is because scare we ate the hard boiled one very difficult to digest. And she was saying half boiled one, there is a layer of 卵磷脂 (not sure if I wrote correctly) very good for our egg

    Also try to drink to drink chicken essence during 2ww yukki? For ivf, some ladies recommend durian after the transfer. So today I ate durian. This weekend will savour again. Haa because many gatherings with parents lately and they know me and my sistas love durians so timing just right since me on 2ww.

    Good morning ladies!

    The eat only egg white thing sounds interesting. Must be soft boiled is it, cannot fry? Coz I dont't like the gooey2 egg white. When I go Ya Kun, always ask for them to cook the egg longer.

    I didn't take my chicken essence + tangkwei this morning coz one of you ladies said not to take during the 2ww.

    Fingers crossed, this cycle is successful.

    Good morning.

    I prefer to eat the whites the way I like it although some recommend eat it half boiled. So just cook the way that you enjoy, minty. dont't need too much rules

    Chix essence is good during 2ww so long it doesn't have dang gui. I think EYS has one that got dang gui?

    I'm taking the Brand's one but we have the normal Chicken essence too. Will take that when I get home.

    IMO, the one with tangkwei tastes nicer.
