hi LPH, i asked the hotel for pick-up previously, they said it's easier and cheaper to take aiport taxi
it's not by meter but fixed price depends on location
i stayed at ao nammao, it's 600 baht. i think ao nang is the same. pay at counter lor (only 1 company)

starstar,

by rite shldn't have any side effects i think. but since i started taking it last thurs, i have been spotting. Dunno if it's due to the supplement also. ???

Yap, I'm wif amore, spa. Have not tried out the fitness yet. Went for hydrotherapy, scrub and massage lst week. Felt so...good that i tipped the masseur which i usually dun in sg..haha...

Hey Haru
Hmmm nevermind lar..miss one day not too bad lar..

T&P
Side effect??Last time i took it..din notice any side effect leh...i dun think it had anything to do with spotting lar..sometimes its just some hormone change...ur AF coming soon?

Hey starstar
Bai feng wan is not really to help conceive lar..its just more for regulating..so that you will be able to guage when is ur ovulation period..and also to "bu" the womb lar..I take that monthly also...
 

haru

New Member
hi t&p,
you too?? i tot it was just me! since i took it last week. also wondering if its due to the supplement..

zhuzhu,
what's AF? =P

hi gals

hv been wondering abt the folic acid supplement u gals hv been taking - how does it help when it comes to conceiving? sorri very mountain again..hehe...

hv a nice weekend

cheers!!!

Hey Haru
AF= Aunt Flo = Menses

Har..so u gals after taking the folic acid got spotting ah...eh..i had no clue leh..maybe u gals wan to stop for a while lor..but so far i never read of ppl takin folic acid got spottin leh..

Hey bvbride
Folic dun help in conceiving..just that its very impt in the inital stage when the bb is developing..think got something to do with the spinal development...becose normally by the time we discover our pregnancy..could be like into 6wks or so...so that means for the 1st few wks..dun have folic acid to aid in the development..dat y for those who are TTC..they are encourage to start taking folic acid..
 

haru

New Member
hi bvbride,
tink zhuzhu helped to give you a good idea of why most ladies who are planning to conceive take folic acid. actually its good to start taking as soon as you are married coz there is always a chance of getting preggie! =D

zhuzhu,
hmm..actually i also duno is it really body reacting to folic. but anyway its not first time i experience this so maybe its got nothing to do with it at all.

hey everyone,
me just went to try the hainanese bun and coffee with hubby at beach road, its soooooo yummy. we already ate alot at MIL plc and planned to only share one bun together. end up we each ate 2 buns!
biggrin.gif
with soft boiled eggs!! and the kopi is really fragant, taste diff from other kopitiams. must try!!!

after eating, we went to explore the area and found ourselves to be really sua ku boy..found so many cool restaurants esp some nice thai and steamboat places..

Hey haru
Then i guess its not the folic acid lar..some woman do experience dat also..especially when their AF is nearing..
 

haru

New Member
hahhaha zhuzhu, so thats ur term for the time of the month eh? mine is "strawberry jam factory in production" (quite a mouthful eh??)
 

zhuzhu

New Member
Hey Haru
That is not my term leh..actually this term is quite widely used..if u look into those motherhood threads..alot of the gals use this term oso leh..
 

starmed

New Member
hi all
how's the weekend so far?

haru
actually TOC n TTC is almost same...:p TOC is part of the path to TTC...
happy.gif


zhuzhu
yup...i know the bai feng pill is regulate menses but also like u said, 'bu' the womb...so that when u concieve your womb is in optimal condiditon...
happy.gif
that's why I said help when u want to conceive...:p

bvbride
folic acid is impt when u get preggie...but if u take it before preggie, it's even better...so when u get preggie, not too many problems caused by low folic acid... just be readily prepare...
happy.gif
 

zhuzhu

New Member
Hey starstar
Ya hor..silly me....after all my explanations...its still goes back to the same pt "helps to conceive"..

Hey Ladies,

I am packing for my Maldives trip! SO exciting!!!!! Okie I got few questions. Can help me? Pls pls?

1) Someone told me where I can buy the underwater camera before. I forgot the place. Where is it? IS it at takashimaya?

2) I bought some food to bring to maldives. Anything that I cannot bring that I should know of? Such as cheese or something?

3) I am going to bring water there as well. Hope thats not crazy?

I am allllll excited! My wedding is just next week! Sat... ooOOOoo so exciting!
 
Hi Zhuzhu,

no leh it's not near the strawberry or AF time..ahaha..the names u guys came up with..I do get spotting sometimes but this time it's quite serious, so shldn't be the hormones thingy.

Hey Haru,
Has ur spotting stop? U still on the folic acid pills? I think I shld visit my gynae soon, it's really quite bad...I have endo, so occasionally do get some problems, but this time round, it's bad...

hi Mis,
you can get dispoasable underwater cam from any supermarts or photo developing shops. i still have one which i completely forgot to bring for my trip. good thing u remembered!

I didnt bring any water coz they do give bottled water, but do check with the hotel to be sure. if not mayb just bring a few bottles coz its really heavy.

Hey Zhuzhu/starstar/Haru,

So fast hor? I am getting more excited each day! I was about to pack for maldives already! Heee

I got 6 bottles of water as well. And Chips and instand noodles. So was worried that might nt be able to bring in.

Hotel got water but its 1litre a day. To buy cost about 5usd. So i think... i rather bring lo.

As for the disposable camera.. I found them at carrefour! Heee. It cost 20 bucks for 27 pics. So in the end, we bought a waterproof camera bag which cost 43bucks. Hmmm. Can take more pics. Hee.

Hi Haru,

my spotting has stopped. Have been off the pills for abt 1 week. Somehow I dun think it's the pills too, but y dun u stop n see how? Different pple have diff reaction to supplements..I used to take folic 2 yrs back and didn't experience any prob...so dunno what went wrg anyway. I'll try taking the pills again next week and see the spotting comes back..ha

LPH,
aiyo if u r refraining..shldn't ask me rite.haha..

LPH & bvbride,
Have been shopping at VS. Also cos I jus returned some stuff n they dun allow me to refund cos it was bought during the promotion "Buy $250, less $75", so need to choose a similar value item. but if i jus ship one item back, not worth it. so need to chalk up at least $100 worth prds.
I also joined some sprees, like the CCT fashion and some food sprees..haha..quite fun.
