hi ladies, to be frank wit you all, i dont believe in any china/japanese product. i'ld advice that you go for either forever living products or GNLD if u must. i know of someone who used tianshi and ended up having internal bleeding. pls be careful. in my own case, i only used pregnacare for a couple of months, BELIEVED GOD for a gift and visited a GOOD O&G doc. If you reside  in lagos, I'm willing to give you the addy of the hospital on phone/email as am not willing to advertise their services.

Itiade thank you for this advice i was a bit worried myself that was why i asked what it was, i have never tried it or have i known anyone who has taken it.
Things from china always scare me the goods get as e be talk less of drugs .

Una don de scare me o. But sha let me b prepared 2 die.aladunni i tink u can here dis.it wil not b our portion.
Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by Aladunni(f): 1:55pm On Oct 29, 2009
@ venuss
I beg to differ. But wat i know is we all ave diff body physiology and thus diff reactions to everything even d food we eat. For example dis same pregnacare itiade is talking abt gave my sister in law so much dizziness she stoppd wen shez preg.
Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by Arlington(f): 4:19am On Oct 30, 2009
Nobody is going to die ohhh! grin
I believe she just said it out of concern and i was just a bit worried that was why i stated what i felt.
but true as venuss said we all react differently our prayer is that it reacts in a positive way,when you take it .

MY PEACE THE DAY HAS COME FRIDAY THE 30TH BY THE TIME YOU SEE THIS I AM STILL SLEEPING BECAUSE OF THE TIME DIFFERENCE OYA DROP MY GOOD NEWS grin

Ladies,

I am struggling for words to express my emotions right now, maybe beause I sort of know what you are going through and I know words are not enough to comfort one in that situation only God can.

I lost my first pregnancy, although it was early but a D&C still had to be done to clean me up, so here I went as a married woman to carry out a D&C!. That was the first time to be put to sleep for a medical procedure in my life.

I felt bad and the bad feeling did not just end when I got pregant again, It only changed form. I was scared throughout that pregnancy, I was not happy in it.I was put on progestorone injection for the first 12weeks, twice a week just to be causious since we did not know the reason for the miscarriage. I kept on running to the toilet with a heavy heart anytime I felt any thing tickling me down there. I did not even want people to know I was pregnant incase anything happened again.

But it all went well, I was so healthy, I only allowed anxiety to deprive me of the joy of carrying that pregnancy but mmmmh sisters I could not help it o. so many bad thoughts were going through my mind.

Now that I want another baby, I am determined not to get worried, God has given me this one and I will enjoy him, others will come when they will come.

I love you all.

Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by stages: 3:00pm On Nov 05, 2009
I have been foolowing this thread for some time and i must confess it has helped me somehow.
let me share with u girls my experience:

I got pregnant last year in april, it was not a planned act but it just happened, i was kind of scared since i was not yet married (u know how parents take such issues) but i was certain i was going to have that baby. during the first four weeks i had serious cramps around my left lower abdomen, this made me to go and see the doctor coz i was scared of having an ectopic pregnancy. The doc confirmes that everything was ok after a scan and even said there was a heart beat. he gave me iron and vitamines to take each day.
At 11 week 4 days, i discovered a dark clot of blood while cleaning myself after urinating (but i had no cramps) the next day i went to see the doctor who sent me to do a scan, when i got the result, the doc said i was going to have a miscarriage but he was also surprised to see dat it was only an empty sac on it's way out. That nite i started bleeding and went back the the hospital, i was taken to the labour room and that was all about that pregnancy.
Till date i can't really tell what happened to the pregnancy.
Now am married and i've tried for 2 months now but not yet pregnant. it's true dat it's too early to start getting worried but am concerned. I just trust in God who gives children that the time would come.
Please i need some one to tell me more about ovulation kits coz am planning on using it this month.

@stages,


I can authoritatively tell you, you are just getting yourself unnecessarily worried, did you say 2months?
When I had my miscarriage I was told that many first pregnancies end up that way, so please stop worrying!

You could also approach the Doctor who handled your case during the miscarriage to get the details of what happened
I am sorry, I do not know much about ovulation kits, the Saliva type that I tried to use at one time got me more confused as I could not understand the thing grin
Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by Arlington(f): 4:11pm On Nov 05, 2009
Hello stages,
First i am so sorry about your loss, the amazing part about it is that nobody can really say what causes them they just happen.
i have experienced 2 my self with no explanation, i am happy that this topic can help you in any little way, i found that most time we never talk about it or have anyone who knows exactly what we are going through.
Yes 2 months is still a little early but i totally understand where you are coming from after one misscarriage you almost live in constant fear or panic mode. But don't let that steal your joy and happiness try and just relax a little bit and enjoy your new marriage .

As for ovulation kits normally you ovulate 14 days after your first period but not every woman ovulates on the 14th day. so i usually start testing from day 8 so i am sure i don't miss it.Glad you came here i pray your journey to motherhood will be a short one see you around. smiley

A little info i found for you stages.


COLLECTION
Collect urine once per day, at about the same time between 10:00 A.M. and 8:00 P.M. Do not use first morning urine as a sample. Collect urine in a clean, dry cup or container.

TEST PROCEDURE
STEP 1: WHEN TO START TESTING: Determine the length of the menstrual cycle. The length of the menstrual cycle is the number of days from the first day of menstrual bleeding to the day before bleeding begins on the next period.

Determine the usual length of the menstrual cycle over the last few months. Then, refer to the Ovulation Calendar Cycle Chart below to determine on which day of the menstrual cycle to begin testing. If your cycle is less than twenty-one days or greater than forty days, consult a physician.

Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by stages: 10:43am On Nov 06, 2009
Thanx girls for the comments. am trying hard not to be too worried.

Actually Al this is where am abit confused coz
i have a kind of irregular menses:

january-29 days

february-31 days

march-32 days

april-30 days

may-28 days

june-30 days

july-30 days

august-27 days

september-28 days

october-32 days

With such menstrual cycle when do you think i can start testing?

I was thinking that i could start testing as early as the 11th day and continue till the 18th day to be on the safe side. I really have to be sure coz my hubby is not around and comes only during the weekends (but i could make him come even within the week if i think am ovulating) cheesy
What do you think?

Hi all.@arlington, dis my peace needs flogin o!

my dear no flog me ooo grin.  l said saturday now and l did it.





sorry for spoiling your week with this bad news cry.  SCAN said empty uterus i.e negative.

the question now is What is happening, l dont use to have this delay before the miscarriage?  ls my cycle still regulating from the last miscarriage?  pls dont advise me to see my doc, l am tried of hospital!  my last period was August 20th.

YES I KNOW MY JESUS LIVES!  AND I AM A FRUITFUL VINE BESIDE MY HUSBANDS SIDE. Thats what the WORD says, and that is what IAM tongue kiss
Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by Arlington(f): 1:41pm On Nov 09, 2009
@stages sorry i did not reply sooner your period is between 27 days to 32 i would say to be safe  i would say day 9 i know it is a bit early but since everyone body does things diffrent you don't want to miss the window of opportunity.

Sorry i had to laugh a bit when you said you could make your hubby come when you are ovulating  , when you want a baby we women do some crazy things. i remember once the doctor told me i had to bring a sample from my husband to be tested and it had to be there under one hour if not all the sperm might die. The way i was driving you would think i just stole serious cash from Central bank. i was running up the stairs panting and sweating saying i am here i am here cheesy

@Venuss let us just leave her this time , let us not flog her plenty.

@Mypeace  First i am sending you lots of hugs and as i told veuss we will not flog you anymore. I know it is disappointing but you are in the right frame of mind all we have to do is keep believing and trusting God .(AND GOING TO THE HOSPITAL TO CHECK ONCE IN A WHILE EVEN IF WE DON'T WANT TOO) kiss
I am not saying go right now just give your self some time , i am surprised i thought your period has regulated it's self .
just take it easy ok and let's hope it comes soon but if it does not come soon will you go and check?

I am suppose to make an appointment with a diffrent doctor this week i just collected all my past medical records from my doctor i am looking for a second opinion let them just go over the tests i have done etc. I was a bit sad last week when i saw the result showing that the last baby i lost was a girl,i wish i never knew .
This baby matter sometimes dey taya me when i was younger i use to think that all my husband would do is just look at me and belle go shoot come out ,but i am seeing that it is not that easy blessed are the women who just get pregnant without anyworry for they do not know what God has done for them. i don't wish this constant state of anxiety on my enemy sef.,Anyway ahead ahead.

Take heart, friend. Bible says in the book of Job, that you shall forget your misery, and remember it as water that passed away. Your age shall be clearer than the noonday. You shall shine forth; you shall be as the morning. You shall be secure because there is hope for you and you shall take your rest in safety. I feel your pain, cry cry cry cry but not to worry Dearie, God who made me a mother after several miscarriages will give you a testimony SOON. He will even give you multiple for all the delay. I admire your spirit, kissKeep trusting, and am sure He won’t fail you. kiss kiss

Shushu, welcome to our little group , hope you come in and talk once in a while . if you dont mind me asking have you tried anything other than waiting? Gone to the doctor for any extensive test or anything?
Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by shushu(f): 1:26pm On Nov 19, 2009
Dear Arlington,
yes i have.We have been to the gp,done some tests and now have been reffered to the fertility clinic, i am waiting for a call from the doctor to know the next step to take.thanks for your concern
Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by Arlington(f): 4:32pm On Nov 20, 2009
@shushu ok that is good to hear, i have suffered 2 misscarriages and they have not been able to tell me why, so i keep hoping and praying and finger crossing .

I just collected my medical records from my fertility doctor and i am going to see another one just for a second opinion, i keep seeing i have high numbers for a particular blood test that is connected to blood cloths that can also lead to miscarriages and my doctor keeps saying it is normal. i just hope i am not driving my self crazy by looking for what does not exist.

@my peace where are you? i hope you are ok you have been quiet for a while .
Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by MyPeace(f): 8:10am On Nov 30, 2009
