    Hi all,

    I'm also trying for 2nd baby! My DS is 13 months already and hopefully can have a gal too. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

    Lalitha/andrea/bubble pearl, how old is your first one? Btw, anyone still breastfeeding? I'm still latching my DS at night as he is still not ready to wean.

    Hi dearies,

    Great to meet you all.

    My first child is a boy and he just turned 1 year old yesterday. So I am starting to TTC for

    baby #2 seriously from this month onwards.

    Hoping for a gal, then more ideal la~!!! (HeHe)

    Hi Taregal,

    Glad to hear from you too. Have u just started to TTC? or been sometime?

    Hi angelmummy,

    I stopped breastfeeding at 7 month plus becoz of going back to work after 4months. I found it very stressful breastfeeding n pumping n doing nite duties. So eventually at 7month onwards, weaned into complete formula milk n cereals.

    Though I wished he could have continued breastmilk, as there is nothing equivalent to it. At the same time, u need to take care of ur diet when breastfeeding. Being a teacher, I skip meals at times.

    But glad to hear u continue..... GREAT!

    Hello andrea,

  27. lc_gal

    Start to have sex from CD 10 and every alternate days, if possible around the same timing. It should atleast help u NOT to miss the ovulation timing.

  28. piggy2008

    i also trying for first BB .... but i see some spots ...sigh menses coming i guess ... no luck ...

  29. devil_pinky

    devil_pinky Member

    Mrs Carrice..

    dun be dismay...maybe this month is nt the right time for baby? perhaps next month baby will be coming our way.

    I am trying to stay calm and expect the least..cuz i really wish to conceive soon. My girl is 7 and i will be going to my 30s in another 3 years time... so i hope i can have another 1-2 more babies coming soon..

  30. kerqing

    kerqing New Member

    Xiu, ur cycle is 31days. Most likely you will have to bb dust aft CD14 every alternate day.

    Coz after O day, there is a 2WW.

    Mine was a super long cycle. Ard 36-43days.

    When I start using the clearblue fertility monitor then i realise i O only after CD18.

    Hi everyone,

    Hi Kerqing,

    I scare CD14 abit late. Cos last cycle, i miss it. Is the monitor accurate than OPK? Btw, how old r u?

    Mee too, hope to have baby before i turn 30.

  34. devil_pinky

    devil_pinky Member

    Mrs Carrice

    i am sure you will have your 1st BB ... just got to work hard. If you don't mind the gender then you can start "working" during the fertile period.

    I wish to have a bb soon too..

    btw if you need any info on Gynae, i will be glad to share with you.

    I am doing a list of the "recommended" doctors available.


  35. piggy2008

    piggy2008 Member

    LOL ... thanks for sharing however i did go for check up with Gynae. i am diagnose with PCOS however at that point of time, me and hubby still not ready yet ...

    Trying another few more months before i go see him again

  36. kerqing

    kerqing New Member

    Xiu, I understand.

    But if start at CD10 you need to do every alternate days till CD20 leh. Coz your cycle is long.

    Start on CD10 is most likely for cycle that is 28days de.

    Very tired by CD16. CD10-CD16, 6days 3x bb dust le. Imagine still got 2more to go.

    Must feed hb with lots of good stuff ya.

    Cant say monitor is better. Coz I dont feel comfortable with OPK especially when see faint lines. So no choice buy the monitor.

    Plus I not young le. I already in my early 30s.

    Get a better one, n get clearer result on O day.

  37. xiu03

    hi Mrs Tan,

    Maybe u wanna try for baby boy on fertile period.

    Hi Lalitha,

    Thanks for the advice. Plan to bd on CD12. Dunno can alternate day or not cos scare hubby dun have the mood.

  38. devil_pinky

    devil_pinky Member

    oh ok.. all the best.

  39. xiu03

    xiu03 Active Member


    Plan to start at CD12. Will use opk to monitor in the meantime. Maybe will bd on CD12,14,16,18. Is it sufficient? Scare hubby no mood also. How much is the monitor?

  40. devil_pinky

    devil_pinky Member


    Ya i want to try during the fertile period but then they say must be the point where it's ovulating.

    I have the ovulating strips and the test kits but i am not sure when i should i start using them.

    The books mentioned that the fertile period

    eg: 1st May - 7th May" but you cannot just try on that whole period cuz later end up getting a girl.

    So they mentioned i must try only when it is ovulating and continue to "work" till the end of the fertile period.

    So confusing.

    Hi Hapimint,

    The opk and hpt kit are indeed more ex in sg pharmacy.It's cheaper online. How much is it at China? Are they effective cos some are not sensitive...

  42. xiu03

    xiu03 Active Member

    Mrs Tan,

    Oic. U can obeserve the cervical mucus. Egg white means fertile. U can try this ovulation calendar for gender preference as a guideline.


    Remeber to tick the box for 'Show me the best days to have sex in order to

    increase my chances of having a baby of a certain sex'

  43. piggy2008

    piggy2008 Member

    ya my hubby tell me that in china, the opk and hpt kit is so much cheaper ... he even ask his friend to help me buy ... so far i haven try yet ...

  44. kerqing

    kerqing New Member

    xiu, hb make a big role. He dont want how to get #1.

    Monitor is $300 plus. Test Kit is $80 for 20 sticks. For 28cycle, 20 sticks can last for 2 cycles. For ppl like us long cycle, 20 stick is just nice for 1 cycle. *heartaches*

    I think to bd on those days is enough. Coz to bd on alternate is to ensure the supply of swimmer in your body.

    Mrs Tan, start to use your OPK on CD6 if your cycle is 28days. then you will know if you ovulate on CD10-CD14. That is the fertile period for 28days cycle.

    I read from somewhere that swimmer need 12hrs to swim n reach the egg. so if you want boy, it will have to be the fast swimmer right?

    I also want a boy so we bd very alternate days n also the O day. Once I know is O Day, the next day also bd. I also have to pray hard that my hb got fast swimmer else also will end up with girl.

    oic, some say not reliable but it all depends. Maybe u can try and tell me next time. Did you see TCM/gynae for your PCOS? Take care

    True! But sometimes no mood, also cannot force cos he will feel stress. Hopefully, my bd scedule can be accompolished. Hee hee..

    For me, i want a baby gal. My sis has 3 boys and she want a gal badly. But most imptly, as long as the baby is healthy, mummies will be contented [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

    The test kit i bought costs me $30 for 30 strips. Purchase online is cheaper. Hope that you will get a BFP soon [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

  48. kerqing

    kerqing New Member

    xiu, that link very useful. But my cycle is most likely to be more than 35days.

    Those days it indicate to bd to have a boy, i really did bd.

    So im now in my 2WW. Kind of hate the waiting time. haiz...

  49. devil_pinky

    devil_pinky Member


    Cool thanks for your info. i started to monitor my cycle in Jan till now. But then last month was 30days but previously was 28days. Well if my mense comes on this friday then it will be 28days.

    So i am not sure either..plus my menses always comes for a period of 4-8days or more if i am stressed.

    So when do you start to "work hard" ? u said every alternate day? but then the female sperm stays longer in the womb then the male.

    Ya male swim faster but then they die faster and shorter life span. So lets pray for the best

    Oh and make sure your "xx place" is more alkaline then acidity... hope you know what i meant.

    Hope for the best!

  50. kerqing

    kerqing New Member

    Mrs Tan, I start to really work hard in Feb.

    That is when I start to use the morning. The start to ask me to test on CD6. But never bd every alternate day. Just bd on Oday and the day after. That time blur n not sure ma. hahaha.

    Then AF visit 14days after Oday. So that make me understand the 2WW.

    So for this cycle, bd on CD11 and every alternate day until CD24.

    True Female swimmer stay longer but Male swimmer also lesser. So can only try to make sure the supply of swimmer is there. That is why bd every alternate day. Coz swimmer can survive for 48hrs right??

    How to make sure is more alkaline then acidity?

  51. piggy_jas

    piggy_jas Active Member

    Mrs Tan

    If want a baby boy, we must be more acidity or alkaline?

    Ohh if my mens come last month 16th, this month also 16th is counted as how many days?

    My mens usually comes late... like this so hard to count fertile date le..

  52. xiu03

    Baby boy is alkaline condition. Tink ur cycle is 32days. Perhaps you can take some supplement to regulate ur menses.


    Understand the waiting in suspense emotion. Some can detect pregnant less than 12days. Hope to hear gd news fr u soon [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

    can you advise what is AF and 2WW. As for bd (is it bed).

    Alkaline = the female (you) must reached your orgasm first before your hubby.

    Male sperm will thrive better in alkaline condition.

    A woman's vagina is naturally alkaline near the cervix and more acidic near the entrance.

    It therefore follows that intercourse positions which require deeper penetration will naturally favor the conception of a boy.

    Male sperm is smaller and faster than female sperm. However, it does not survive for as long a period.

    If you have intercourse on the day of ovulation, or as near to it as possible, the male sperm can quickly reach the waiting ovum before the slower female sperm.

    The Diet also is impt - take food that is more alkaline.

    If you are trying to conceive a baby BOY,a cup of caffeinated coffee for the MAN, right before having intercourse.

    Check out the 2 links below:



    Btw, can we rinse and wash up after we "BD".

    I saw the book say we have to wait awhile.

    haha so pai seh..

  55. xiu03

    xiu03 Active Member

    Mrs Tan,

    It's better to lie down for ard 20mins after BD so as to allow the sperm to be able to swim. I read abt a case where a gal often wash up after BD. Once she did not wash up after BD and she conceive.

  56. devil_pinky

    devil_pinky Member


    Thanks for the information. Cuz i have the tendency to wash thoroughly after "bd".

    I will keep in mind and make sure i don't do that.

    i cant wait for my mense to come this friday and the "fertile" period to come.

    the waiting part is so miserable..esp when you hope and then you saw your mense coming the following month...

  57. kerqing

    kerqing New Member

    Jasmine, urs is 32days for your last cycle.

    Agree to eat supplement.

    Im cycle was 43days from nov09 till Jan10. Then in Feb10 i start taking supplement and my last cycle was shorten by 7days.

    Mrs Tan,

    AF = Menses

    bd = baby dust

    2WW = 2 weeks waiting, AF will visit you 14days after your Oday. So most ppl call it 2WW. U need to wait for 2weeks then you can test HPK for a positive.

    Wow thanks for infor. But like too much things to do for a boy. I do prefer boy but as long as healthy can le.

    I try not rinse n wash, coz once stand up, what goes in will come out. KS ma.

  58. kerqing

    kerqing New Member

    xiu n Mrs Tan, now i start to have all the PMS le. I still have 7more days to wait.

    I have all the PMS that you can think of so it is hard to tell is AF or MS.

    BD= Baby dust? what is baby dust?

    Then what is MS?

    OMG i feel so out of place. haha [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] you all seem to know well on the terms..

    don't worry.. another 7 days.. who knows maybe a life is in there now? if it's not it's ok.. you have us here all working hard as well. so you have our company ..

    btw are you all working or SAHM?
