Christy> At home will go crazy lor somemore no bb to take care lagi worst. But after a month of rest, abit slow at work... LOL!

Ya, dont rush. The other time I also gan chiong to have a bb then end up losing her. But it's ok lah, as long as she is not suffering. So now wait till I get better then I will try for another one. Must be a girl also. Heehee!

My advise to all, remember to take whatever test your gyne tell you to do, especially if you are tested high risk on the results.

Its not your fault in losing your girl she is in a safe place now [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] (a better place in god's hand)

~~~~ Cervical mucus ~~~~

Cervical fluid is necessary for allowing the sperm to swim freely through the cervix. Some of us have low or no cervical fluid, so it is harder for the sperm to move and there may not be a friendly environment for the sperm to sustain themselves.

When a woman ovulates there should be an increase in cervical mucus (CM), as well as a change in the mucus texture, from “wet” to a more pliable, stretchy, egg white like mucus.

Here are some of the ways to increase CM (extracted from internet):

1. Drink green tea daily - There are no studies proving this, but I have read hundreds of women using green tea to increase CM with great success. Drink one cup a day from menstruation till ovulation.

2. Take Evening Primrose - Dose is 1500 - 3000 mg once daily. Take from your period till ovulation, than switch to fish oil. The dosage for increasing cervical mucous is initially 500mg, three times a day for a total of 1500mg per day. If you don’t get results in your first cycle, increase your dosage to 3,000 mg a day in your

next cycle. Evening Primrose Oil can cause uterine contractions in pregnancy, which is why you should not take it past ovulation (in

case you get pregnant.)

*Note - Not recommended for ppl that have PCOS*

3. Take L Arginine- This is a supplement helps to promote cervical mucous by supporting the production of nitric oxid (NO). Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels and helps to increase blood flow to the uterus, ovaries, and genitals.

4. Use a sperm friendly lubricant - A water based sperm friendly lubricant that mimics cervical fluids and creates a sperm friendly PH in necessary to allow the sperm to swim and reach the


*There is a brand called Preseed, can be found in major pharmacies*

5. Drink a lot of water through out the day - This may be all you need, drink more water. Regardless if you use any of the supplements to help, you must drink enough water for your body to

be able to make cervical mucous.

6. Grapeseed Extract aka grapefruit juice. Grapeseed extract works with Vitamin C to make it more effective. In addition, the presence of this specific antioxidant can give additional support and protection to the sperm.

7. Robitussin, cough syrup. Can be found in major pharmacies. The active ingredient is guaifenesin. Helps to increase CM by thinning the fluid. It doesnt create CM. I personally tried it, and yes it works.

8. Supplements. Not those common multi vits. It is those products said can increase CM (when googling information on CM, such products often pop ups.). Those products are mainly contain various minerals & vits. Not able to find in SG though. An example will be FertilAid.

1) What Is PCOS, anyway?

In each menstrual cycle, follicles grow on the

ovaries. Eggs develop within those follicles, one of which will reach maturity faster than the others and be released into the fallopian tubes. This is "ovulation". The remaining follicles will degenerate.

But in the case of polycystic ovaries, the ovaries

are larger than normal, and there are a series of

undeveloped follicles that appear in clumps or

cysts, somewhat like a bunch of grapes.

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac usually found on the surface of an ovary. There are many types of ovarian cysts, each with a different underlying cause. Many women will have them at some point during their childbearing years.

Most ovarian cysts are completely without

symptoms. However, some types can cause

serious health problems.

"Polycystic ovaries" means many cysts on your

ovaries. They are not especially troublesome and

may not even affect your fertility.

Please note. You can have polycystic ovaries

without having PCOS. On the other hand, nearly all women with PCOS will have polycystic ovaries.

"Polycystic Ovary Syndrome" (PCOS) is the name

given to a very complex endocrine (glandular) and

metabolic condition in which a woman will have

polycystic ovaries, along with a pattern of other

symptoms that reflect imbalances in reproductive

and other hormones.


2) Symptoms of PCOS.

Symptoms will vary but commonly include some

combination of the following:

* Multiple ovarian cysts (polycystic ovaries that are

2-5 times larger than healthy ovaries).

* Irregular or absent menstrual cycle.

* Infertility.

* Obesity or the inability to lose wei.ght.

* Acne.

* Excessive body or facial ha.ir (hirsutism).

* Insulin resistance. * Thinning of scalp ha.ir.

* Velvety, hyperpigmented skin folds (acanthosis


* High blood pressure.

* High cholesterol or triglycerides.

* High blood glucose.

* Chronic inflammation, including autoimmune

tendencies such as autoimmune thyroiditis.

* Appetite disorders.

* Multiple hormone imbalances, commonly

including: testosterone, cortisol, estrogen, FSH

(follicle stimulating hormone), insulin, leptin,

adiponectin, LH (luteinizing hormone),

progesterone, prolactin, thyroid hormones and


* Depression.

* Lack of energy.

As this list suggests, PCOS is not simply a

disorder of your ovaries alone. It is more

widespread than that. PCOS is a multi-organ

systemic disorder that affects dozens of hormones

and other signaling molecules throughout your


This baffling array of symptoms is one reason why

doctors have difficulty diagnosing PCOS, why

doctors do not agree on what PCOS actually is,

and why it is so hard to treat.


3) PCOS Should Not Be Left Untreated

Besides all of the possible symptoms we listed

above, untreated PCOS has some very undesirable

long-term health consequences such as increased

risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and

possibly cancer.


4) No Magic Pill for PCOS

As you probably know by now, it's very hard to

manage all the symptoms of PCOS with

conventional treatment.

Unfortunately, there are no drugs that cure PCOS.

Even surgery on your ovaries does not cure the

symptoms of PCOS in all cases.


5) You'll Have to Help Yourself

You can't depend on your doctor alone to make

your PCOS go away. It is not your doctor's

responsibility to make you well. It's *your*

responsibility. Your doctor can help, but whether or not you get PCOS under a degree of control is really up to you and no one else.

Hi Littlefren,

Sorry to hear that.. hope you are coping well now. I am not Pcos but I think TCM can help thou.. I went thru TCM for 3 months and got it... but not without poking.. mine is dr tan kian sing. In fact.. i was like u, keep thiking accupuncture is very painful de.. but after trying for the first time.. its actually nothing. If u not scared of injection or ant bites, this should be nothing to you. You are supposed to relax during accupuncture, so as not to feel the tingle feeling when the needle pokes. Its so fine that the feeling last less than a second.

Each session i went with my DH, its abt $200, incl medication and accupunture. So it depends on your condition thou.

Hi little piggy, so u are preggy now? Congrats! So envy! Thanks for the info. I think I can take ants bites. But I went tongji and they have no accu... I see how it goes, at least so far the med not so bitter! So will take for a while and see if my pcos will improve. Hai, I hope I can be like u soon but I think I maybe having some complication cos of miscarraige... Keeping my finger cross! I am hopeful still and thanks for the reply!

Hi all,

I know this is a little weird to ask this question. But those of you who go for TCM, is there also a way in which you can get to choose your baby's gender?

If you believe in Chinese medication, do not mind the hassle to boil them, do PM me.. my mom passed me a formulation for Eu Yan Sang..

I took it 1.5 times and conceived our current baby..

And my mom's fren who passed the formulation to her actually had a proven record..

If you want, you may PM me, I'll share the formulation. :)

PS: I can't guarantee the result though.. but no harm giving it a try..

Hi Mummies,

I'm a Oct Mummy-to-be. I heard from my friends that Gingersnaps sell very pretty clothes for baby and toddlers. So being first time parents, when both my hubby & I went shopping at Gingersnaps during our 1st trimester, we couldn't resist the temptations & grap a trolley of cutie clothes home even before knowing our baby gender.

Now that we know that it's a boy, my MIL is suggesting me to let go of the girl's clothing before they turn yellow and "out of fashion". Didn't realise but I think I bought quite a bit, ranging from 6mth-2years old.

Those of you who shop at Gingersnaps should know they are quite ex. But I am letting them go at lower prices. I've posted the pics tog with the size and measurements at the follwing link:


If you are interested in getting any of the following items for your kiddos or friends' kids, just let me know.

P.S All items were not worn before, tags still on. Come with gift boxes as they have given me quite a few since I bought many pieces.

hi all,

I am looking for a common room at Bedok or Tampiness.

We are locate family, couple stay and have two kids which will only come on the weekend. We will need to rent for one year plus while waiting for our BTO at Tampiness.

Please kind call or pm me if you have any intro.





Me and dh have been on and off looking at property since last year.. But then price very high. Then last weekend, we went back to look at those we have seen b4 and some new ones. Then I think the agent quite good, do a very detailed analysis for us and moreover we like the place very much, so we decided to commit yday. Luckily, we were already there, cos just as we were abt to write the cheque the marketing director at the showflat got a call and say another party is interested and ready to pay le. But bcos we already reserve on sat and ready to give cheque yday already. So we got 1st priority.So lucky! After that we heard from the agent that since sat when we reserved, there were another 2 parties interested in the same unit.


Got your mail le. Thanks!
