    Hi angelia &amp; heather,

    hey good good...we are all Oct mum to be, unless due earlier. Heard pple mentioned tat normally for the first pregnancy, bb will be out earlier by 2 weeks...dunno how true it is.

    Me having MS since week 5 and currently still having it on and off although less frequent. I can't take too heavy meals, will feel veri uncomfy and bloated too. But me on the contrary, can't eat much during lunch, dinner better. [​IMG]

    Hi Hi,

    My EDD is 5 Nov. In my 6th week now.

    Just went to my gynae yesterday and saw my baby's heart beating =)

    Morning sickness... not too bad only on certain days but am overwhelmed with fatigue.

    Biggest problem is the multi-vitamins I have to take very morning. I have problems swallowing pills and need to bit it into small bits first... and the taste is yucky -.-""

    Yingzi,

    I wouldn't mind a sept baby either!! My MS was worse in the 7/8 week period. Now getting slightly better, i hope ... but gynae said that it will peak these 2 weeks. Horror!!

    Odie: Wasn't it a wondering feeling seeing the hear beating. i was more relieved than anything!

    Where is everyone planning to deliver?

    <font color="aa00aa">heather,</font>
    at least u still can take dinner.. i practically gotta FORCE myself to eat dinner. of cos, after dinner will feel damn terrible lor [​IMG]


    <font color="aa00aa">yingzi,</font>
    hmm.. is it true that 1st kid will be out earlier by 2 wks? if that's the case then good leh, cos hubby &amp; i are born in Sept (2 days diff). if bb comes out 2 wks earlier, will be so close to our bday (1 or 2 days!!!) [​IMG]

    but hor, my ex-colleague only early by 3 days leh. guess not everyone is the same lor.


    <font color="aa00aa">odie,</font>
    wow, u muz be very excited rite? can see bb's heartbeat. me now looking to my next appt, 2 wks later. hopefully can see bb clearer cos last Monday can roughly see the hands &amp; legs alr [​IMG]

    me oso so sick of the pills (folic &amp; multivit) then i ask gynae can take alternate day or not?! he told me folic gotta take everyday, multivit alternate is alrite [​IMG]


    <font color="0000ff">anyone has any cravings for anything yet?</font>

    <font color="aa00aa">berry,</font>
    oh, speaking abt dizzy spells, mine was on/off but luckily not so frequent. however, these few days like getting a bit frequent. maybe cos this wk, i started to need to wake up middle of the nite to go pee wee, so not enuff sleep [​IMG]
     
  14. heather

    heather New Member

    Angelia, I am in week 10 now. You are in 11th week? So far no cravings at all .... just eat for the sake of eating.

    Hi angelia

    Acutally, I have mixed feeling.... Sometimes, I'm happy, sometimes confused.... But I suppose I will be excited tomorrow since I would be able to see the baby's heart beat. My hubby is extremely happy and excited. I am into my 8th week.

    I have no problem taking folic acid bec I had been taking since Nov 2002....

    ladies.....i got craving for chillies foods
     
  19. odie

    odie New Member

    Oh looks like I'm the last on around here =p

    Hi Heather &amp; Angelia ... yup yup it was exciting. Read from a book that 2 biggest hurdle is whether the pregnancy is in the uterus and when the heart starts beating. Once we pass these 2 hurdles chances of miscarriage will be reduced drastically.

    Hmm.. can take the multi-vits every other day? Sounds tempting leh but for the sake of the baby I think I will just take it everyday.

    As for food craving not really. In fact will try to avoid overeating and oily stuff ... otherwise I will always end up regretting when I feel the bloatedness.

    can i join in too??

    Me only due in Oct, wow so many Oct babies coming. My EDD is 23 Oct 04, now 8.5 weeks.

    So far appetite good, eating every thing. but burping will come in the evenings and sometimes to much to bear will vomit, but manageable.
     
  21. odie

    odie New Member

    Hmmm so since all of us here are still in the really early stages of pregnancy... is there anything we need to prepare at this moment?

    Bigger size clothings? Bigger size bras?? :p

    <font color="aa00aa">{curly,</font>
    erm.. not be dampen ur spirits, but be prepared to not be able to see the bb yet. cos we count our the week we'r in using LMP, but the foetus age might not be so as we might ovulate late.

    i only got to see the heartbeat 4 wks after my 1st visit to gynae (when i tested positive)

    of cos, hopefully u can see the "flickering" on screen [​IMG] it's really amazing!!!

    i've also started on folic way back (think last Jun/Aug). think took too long, now got sick [​IMG] there was 1 period where i juz "reject" everything that's beneficial to bb. the thought of them juz pissed me off. luckily got past it!! *phew*


    <font color="aa00aa">wendyl,</font>
    hahah.. me too. hv cravings for spicy food!! and fries!!! [​IMG]

    actually not really crave for them, but juz prefer to take them. if dun hv, oso can do lah [​IMG]


    <font color="aa00aa">odie,</font>
    well, some say it's only considered "safe" after we pass the 1st trimester. maybe that's why the elderly will advise us to "share the joy" after we pass the 3 mths mark.

    guess we juz hv to be a bit more careful during 1st trimester lor.


    <font color="aa00aa">micky,</font>
    of cos u can join us. this thread is open to all mah [​IMG]

    i think my m/s considered quite alrite, since i only threw up 2x. hopefully NO more to come [​IMG]

    for bras, still alrite for me cos previously i was "AA" [​IMG] so now breasts can fit nicely. thot of getting bigger size bras during sale, but not sure if it'll continue to increase, so din get any lor [​IMG]

  29. curly

    curly New Member

    I was told by a friend not to eat mutton/lamb bec the baby will have "yang dian feng"? I was laughing my head off!! Anyway, I dont take much of that...

    At moment, I can still squeeze into my usual clothes, so no intention to buy yet. As for bras, I think I'll still wear my usual ones unless they become too tight.
     
  30. berrywife

    berrywife Active Member

    Heather, all my pants dun even fit anymore, tops are still okay, but becoming shorter by the day :p My hubby and I could see an obvious diff in my tummy since 10th week+. Now(12 week+) my belly is already a small hardened bulge liao. Planning to shop for maternity wear anytime.

    wendyl, ever since I got pregnant, I havent been able to stomach ANY spicy food at all, not even the slightest tinge of pepper. Or else I'll get terrible heartburn and puke my guts out.

    Odie, when you need to buy new clothes/bras depends on your own 'growth'. Some people dun show until 3rd to 4th month even. I started showing towards end of my 2nd tri. So buy as you need.

    curly, you say sometime happy, sometimes confused? Why confused?
     
  31. angph38

    angph38 New Member

    <font color="aa00aa">curly,</font>
    hmm.. everyone is different lor. but like i say, it very much depends on individual cos our AF cycle different mah.

    dun worry, if ur gynae did abdominal scan &amp; can't see, maybe can ask him try doing vaginal scan &amp; see if can see bb??

    well, relax.. me juz quoting myself, maybe u can see leh? [​IMG]

    my 1st visit to gynae was like 16 DPO (34th day of cycle) but could only see thickening of lining, can't even see sac.

    2 wks later, can only see sac.
    abt 1.5 wks later, finally can see bb heartbeat!!!

    <font color="aa00aa">berry,</font>
    me same same. bottoms all can't wear liao, top still okie. [​IMG]

    me oso feeling my tummy getting bigger &amp; bigger.. guess i'll wanna switch to maternity asap else wear normal dress with bulging tummy, very ugly leh. then everyone will think "aiyo, this woman tummy so big" instead of "hmm.. this woman pregnant" [​IMG]

    somemore, wear maternity can "poh" see got pple give me seats or not on MRT [​IMG]

  34. yingzi

    yingzi New Member

    Heather,
    I dun mind whichever mth so long as bb is healthy and normal. [​IMG] Now wondering wat the govt will announced on National day..hope maternity leave can at least stretch to 3 mths, at least more time to recuperate and be with bb.

    Angelia,
    Ya veri individual basis, I do hv frenz whose bb comes out a week later in her first pregnancy. Just some hearsay onli.

    Odie,
    Me still wearing my normal wear but for bra, have wore bigger size bra oredy cos breasts has enlarged and hardened..wearing my normal bra wld be uncomfortable. I hv oso started buying maternity wear, so far bought one pant onli..dunno when will I start wearing but just buy in case i need them

    Berry,
    me on the contrary. Last time cannot take spicy food, now can liao. hee..

    BTW do u gals feel extremely tired. I do, esp after work and weekends. Literally I'm lying there motionless and tend to fall asleep sooooooo easily.

    hi hi angelia...

    hmmm...i think my parent in laws prefer a boy...for me and my hubby...we prefer girl for the first one...cause we feel that sister will take good care of the brothers....

    my pants also cannot wear by 12 weeks...the tops can see my tummy very clearly...so during my 13 weeks...i start to wear maternity clothes liao...more comfortable...

    <font color="aa00aa">curly,</font>
    hmm.. me still take mutton &amp; beef a wk ago leh. [​IMG] but my mummy nvr say anything leh [​IMG]


    <font color="aa00aa">expecting mum,</font>
    my hubby wants a boy, think my ILs oso wishing for a boy cos hubby's elder brother (wife juz delivered last Sept) got a daughter. guess i've got "added" responsibility.

    as for myself, i'll prefer a girl 1st cos can help out mah. but if boy 1st, next time can protect younger sister leh.
     
  38. berrywife

    berrywife Active Member

    angelia, I plan to only buy maternity bottoms, cause I want to wear stretchy tops that hugs my belly, I'm very proud of my bulge keke. but not easy to find tops that are long enough to cover as well as stretchy. Pregnant bulge is diff from thr normal big tummy, pregnant bulge is hardened and very defined, whereas fats are 'layered' and often 'spill' to the sides of waist. :p

    yingzi, I already finish the 'fatigue phase' liao. My engergy level is returning almost back to normal liao.
     
  39. expecting_mum

  40. ade02

    ade02 New Member

    yes, most of my skirts cannot wear also. Now can only rely on those A line skirts coz can wear abit higher, and the hip area can accomodate the stomach. Tops still ok, but me only wearing those few.

    think can tahan for few more weeks before buying maternity wear..

    angelia, I hope that with the abdomial scan, can see liao. Very scared of the vaginal scan.....

    expecting_mum, beef can cause hairiness? dont know weather all these saying are for real...

    Berry, I dont know why I feel that way, very mixed feeling... I read some books and they said it's normal as we know that our role is changing...

    Hi expecting_mum, can't eat beef? Oh no, I've been taking beef like at least once a wk cos my bb seems to like beef alot. Crave for western n fast food all the time. Cold drinks also...

    Hi berry, my energy also seems to be returning [​IMG] Can go shopping for a longer time without feeling tired so easily. Jus hope that my appetite will be better so that I can eat more...
     
  46. yingzi

    yingzi New Member

    expecting_mum,
    sound so much like me, ya esp after lunch can't open my eyes at all and need to keep going to restroom to wash my face...realli hope my energy and appetite are back soon too.

    Skyblue,
    Try to refrain from eating too many beef and taking cold drinks, not gd for bb and health. Me hv totally abstain from beef but cold drinks still take occasionally but me trying to ctrl oso.

    Berry,
    My bottom oso gets tigher now, but now in a dilemma cos maternity pants too big for me and yet my current bottoms are getting tight. Still can dong for like at most 2 weeks, thereafter dunno how.

    BTW gals, do ur have peeling ard ur lips. I do hv since last week and it peels till painful. Hv been putting moisturiser. It does help but doesn't solve the prob totally.
     
  47. berrywife

    berrywife Active Member

    yingzi, I'm in the same delima. I'm way too big for my own pants but still too small for regular maternity pants esp because I'm supposedly small in size to begin with. I went mothercare the other day to see maternity clothes, wow, all so big!

    Skyblue, actually its medically proven that cold drinks will NOT harm the baby in ANY way at all. Its just a chinese belief. For me, I dun take cold dirnk most of the time, but when I have cravings, I still give in once in a while, eg, last night I drank a large slurpee keke..
    My gynea also says beef and lamb is fine, but just like everything else, take in moderation.

    <font color="aa00aa">curly,</font>
    i went thyme at Taka to try the maternity pants, but it looks weird on me. guess gotta wait till tummy is bigger.

    erm.. guess i prefer dresses cos easier. no need to think need to go with which top. me lazy person [​IMG]

    hiaz.. me getting more tired nowadays leh. esp these few days. kept waking up at nite to go toilet. last nite lagi worse. woke up once to go toilet, 2nd time dunno wake up for wat, 3rd time woke up 4+am feeling hungry (but still got back to sleep lah), 4th time woke up feeling a bit of tummy ache.. hiaz.. by the time i need to wake up at 7am, i totally exhausted alr!!


    <font color="aa00aa">curly,</font>
    vaginal scan nothing one, juz like BD. juz feel a bit discomfort only.


    <font color="aa00aa">bebechic, aurora,</font>
    no problem. cos me oso trying to find kakis mah [​IMG] guess all of us trying hard to catch the monkey bb [​IMG]. by the time confinement over, CNY will be near, then can bring bb out to collect angpows!!! haahahahaa..


    <font color="aa00aa">cosmo,</font>
    hmm.. think during that early stage, i only feel my waist expanding, no tummy yet.

    my boobs dun hurt that much, maybe cos i'm AA size, so grew bigger oso not much impact [​IMG]

    expecting mum, its the hormone changes that causes yur acne,. It will go off after you deliver. Maybe you can change your brand of skincare to something that works for acne, and spend more time caring for your skin these 9 months. It should help. [​IMG]

    cosmo, welcome! I didn't had a tummy before I was pregnant, now at 13 weeks, I already have a small hardened bulge, rather obvious one. In fact I started showing surprisingly early.
     
  52. yingzi

    yingzi New Member

    Berry,
    Ya we are in the same boat..my sis asks me to buy those normal wear in L size..I find it a waste cos at most wear for like another 2 mths or so, by then the stomach will be too big to fit in and maternity wear will come in place...aiya maybe just wear my normal ones until realli cannot button.

    Expecting_mum,
    so how did it recovered?? Mine still peeling, esp in the aft leh after my lunch. Morn was quite ok.

    I saw a frenz of mine who had serious acne prob oso. All along her complexion not realli tat gd but after pregnancy, it worsened..tat's why my beautician told me tat during preggie must still continue with proper cleansing of ur face.

    i dun hv peeling lips, but my tummy area seems a bit dry.


    <font color="aa00aa">expecting mum,</font>
    guess mine is more prone to dryness, so at the moment no breakouts yet.

    angelia, try using more moisturiser than usual on your tummy, or start using one if you havent already. As your skin stretches to accomodate the growth, best to apply stretchmark cream/moisturiser daily to keep the skin smooth and supple.

    Hi, I am now 2 mths pregnant. My EDD is in end Oct. My gynea didn't tell me the exact date. He only tell me is end OCt. He said that wait till the baby get bigger will be more accurate to tell the exact EDD. But if base on my last mense...my EDD should be on 24 Oct.

    Anyway, my full day nausea last for 1 week plus on my 5th week. After that no more nausea feeling, but gastric feeling not good, mouth very tasteless, can't drink plain water, don't know how. Like today, drink a glass of warm water in the morning but end up throwing out. Now very thirsty but can't drink plain water and can't even take my folic acid. I think I will skip the folic acid today.

    Morning....

    Oh yes I'm a 1st time mummy so that's why alot of things are new to me :p But I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one having all these questions.

    Hmmm... I'm really wondering too whether to get bigger size clothes esp my pants. Right now relying on jeans which were put away sometime back after losing weight but not sure how long before I will balloon out of it. Buying maternity clothes like a bit too early leh... buy L size also a bit wasted cos chances are that I will only fit into it for a while (cos I still hope to slim back to my original size after delivery)... haiz... dilemma -.-""

    As for food... I agree with Berry... we can still continue to eat as per normal and in fact we should... as long as we eat in moderation everything will be fine.

    angelia, I'm here with hubby. But I'm visiting S'pore next month, can't wait. also others told me not to get any special cremes, just look for lanolin in body moisturisers and use it!

    odie, your clothes are getting tight now?

    Anyone know if there's any harm in taking chinese teas/green teas? I heard abt lmiting caffeine, but I like teas... I'm trying very hard to cut down on coffee as it is.

    Cosmo, I think chinese tea is very liang. Furthermore, some chinese tea also contain caffeine. But I guess drink a cup shldn't be a problem....as long as don't drink too much.
