I got my Brazil nuts from ntuc finest!
Ok. Maybe will drop by Fairprice finest and check it out.
Dragontail, I started with symptoms of AF coming 4 days before my blood test, 2 days before is test, spotting n light menses on blood test date then it's heavy for 5 days n end on 7 days longer than my usual 5 days cycle. The 4th day of the cycle which I say I also fainted during lunch. It's really heavy menses for me but at least it came. I was more afraid that failed already but no menses.
My longan red tea are tea cubes which I buy from taiwan so dont need to boil too. Just dissolve with hot water in a 500ml thermal flask will do. I dont drink this when menses come n I drink about 1-2 times a week only.
Brazil nuts can get from vivocity pat's oven or Jem'a seeds of joys.
Most organic stalls sell Brazil nuts. I got mine from Tanglin Mall where there's an organic food shop. Cold storage also sells.
Actually I'm glad to be greeted by heavy af because since my late 30s, my af has been quite light. It's refreshing to see today 3rd/4th day of my cycle still fresh flow
For me during af I skip chix essence, LRD. When af is cleared (including spotting) then I resume. But vits I still pop as usual. Talking about vits, I went to to buy EPO and royal jelly just now. You gals remind me I have not't eat them for a long time.
Mummypris both sinsehs I have seen before told me my problem is not my food intake. If I wanna drink red tea, go ahead but as with everything, in moderation. It's better to check with your sinseh what's the underlying issue of your trying to concieve challenge. Maybe red tea is just something very insignificant for you.
Hey dragontail, your thermal flask method works
In fact the taste is stronger!!
Oh no I didn't know need to skip lrd during af....
I kept drinking thinking it helps to bu Qi.
This is the picture of the Brazil nut that I bought from ntuc finest. (see attached )
It cost $5.90 for 150g
Soursop2014: thank a lot. Will check from the organic section. This is just to increase the EWCM right. Gal, does it mean if have EWCM is ovulation or?
Soursop yeah it's just perfect right?! Hee. Last time when I had my mc, I did confinement and since I was home all day, I could boil but had to watch over the fire and timing. Xibehxian. After that I found out about the thermal flask method and it's no turning back.
The Brazil nut can eat about 5-6pcs a day after ovulation. As for LRD, I feel better to drink only after af because it helps blood circulation and you probably wouldn't want that when your body is expelling uterine blood.
Oh lately this is my daily dessert/supper now: chopped crunchy apple and sweet yellow kiwi (it does look kinda green here). Yellow kiwifruit seems to be raved for trying to concieve.
Duckling, Brazil nuts is only for aiding implantation. Therefore munch them only after ovulation. If you wanna increase ewcm, find Ms EPO.
If you spot EWCM, likely it means your body is gearing up to ovulate within the next few days. Unfortunately, EWCM is not a guarantee you will surely ovulate. You need to do BBT charting (can forget it because I find most people find it stressful to upkeep. dont't add stress to your trying to concieve journey). Or your doc can do scan or blood test to confirm ovulation or not. You're going Kandang Kerbau Hospital for your fertility consultation right? Leave this part to your doc. Confirming if you ovulate or not will be part of the protocol.
Dragontail, thank for the information. Will check with the gynas on the ovulation. Yup, charting BBT can be quite stressful especially when forgotten to take the temperature even the thremometer is just next to me. Found BD is a super stressful process too. Hahaha
Duckling I think your last sentence represents all trying to concieve women
Hey gals, I was eating around 3-4 Brazil nuts a day then I read too much selenium is toxic.
Selenium can be found in Brazil nuts and some of the food we eat.
Each day cannot exceed 400mcg.
After that I cut down to only one Brazil nut and one chicken essence every morning after ovulation.
Dragon tail: Yup. Heehee.
Soursop2014: Brazli nuts can only consume after ovulation, when to stop eating it?
Brazli nut have selenium, vitamin E, 6 nuts = 190g calories, 19g fat (5g saturated fat, 7g mono - unsaturated fat and rest 7g is polyunsaturated fat) and 4g proteins, 2g fiber and 1g sugar, free from gluten, copper, magnesium, 4g carbohydrate, manganese, 190gmg potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and zinc (sound like multi very) maybe can ask hubby to eat too?
Good to consume 1 - 2 Brazli nuts per day as we only need 400mcg selenium for adult.
The above nutrient is based on consume of 6 Brazli nuts. Have 544 mcg selenium. If not wrong, daily recommended intake should be 25ug for women and 33ug for guy
