    bubbleling,

    my gynae is Dr AL Lim practising at TMC. I have been with him for a few years even before my pregnancy.

    He is patience, experienced n easy to talk to.
    Best part, his consulation is less than 40 and routine ultrasound scan (not the 3D type thou) is FOC.
    But his Q for appointment is long and usually the wait at clinic is a few hours....
    I usually report to his clinic first to chop a Q then go shopping for 1-2 hours before returning to his clinic.

    You can try him if you r those can tahan wait and want more value for $ type.

    Another factor you may want to consider is the hospital the doc can deliver ....
    TMC and Mt A is one of the cheapest private hospitals.

    enjoy your pregnancies gals...

    bubbleling New Member

    hi jo...

    Hi gals

    I am seeing my gynae tmrw. if confirmed, this will be my 1st child and my edd will also be July 05. anyway i am keeping my fingers crossed. I had my ectopic pregnancy removed sometime back this year. according to my gynae, i will be in the higher risk group, thus I am rather worried. Hope this is not another disappointment again.

    bubbleling:
    Dr Lim is at #05-05 TMC. Tel 62553333, 63561133
    he don offer package as he don want to tie his client down... He got no time for walk-in. So must call to make appointment which sometimes is quite long...

    Hi Gals

    Can I join in? My I dun know my EDD yet (should be jul05 oso) but I only know I am about 5 weeks preggie only.

    Do you all know when gynae can doing scanning on us huh?
     
  18. poohy

    poohy Active Member

    tomatoes,

    glad to see u in mtb thread finally [​IMG] scanning can be done anytime but from wk6 onwards, the gestational sac and heartbeat can be detected. Though for some people the detection of heartbeat may happen later in wk8.

    your beta has jump very high over the weekend.... did your gynae comment whether it would be multiple pregnancy ? [​IMG]
     
  19. tomatoes

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi poohy

    Thanks for chatting with me. I am really bored to death (nearly) at home.

    My RE never said it could be a multiple pregnancy. I also scare to ask him 'cos I am not mentally prepared for that oso. Everything seem so unprepared for me from the day I knew I was preggie. Of course, besides that, my hubby and I are really happy about this news.

    Btw, how are you coping wif your BB. When can know the gender? [​IMG]
     
  20. poohy

    poohy Active Member

    tomatoes,

    oh ya must be very bored at home...I was real bored when I was at home for 2 week ..hmm dun worry... high doubling beta also may not means multiples. I got more than doubling beta also but still one bb ... [​IMG] but whatever it is I am sure you will be able to cope fine ... do rest more ... early stage.. dun walk too much [​IMG]

    I hope I will know the bb gender next friday when I do the detailed scan. But it may have to depend on bb position I guess. So far so good... just that at times I get some jitters... u know like those we feel when we were abt to get married. Cos its like a permanent change in our lives soon and then suddenly cant help feeling a bit scared of the uncertainty.

    hi tomatoes,
    congrats!!!!!!! hve u done any scanning??
    if u feelin bored,can email mi... [​IMG]
     
  22. tomatoes

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi poohy

    So excited for you! [​IMG] Next week can know your bb gender liao [​IMG] I still remember the time when we did the IUI around the same time [​IMG] Time really flies [​IMG]

    I guess it all parts and parcel of life. We have different stages in life and having bb is just a 2nd stage of our marriage will have to go through. Next time when our bb is born, we will have to worry about their education.
     
  23. serrich

    serrich New Member

    yah hor, i also wondering when can we know the gender.. Heard from my frens tat sometimes the bb's leg blocking their genital area so unable to see whether its a gal/boy.. [​IMG]

    sure..no prob.....
     
  27. lkf

    lkf Member

    Hi gals

    I am very relieved now. The sac is in the correct place this time. it's very small so still too early to detect the heartbeat. will go back to see my gynae 2 weeks later.

    bubbleling

    my gynae is Dr K T Tan from KKH. She is a senior consultant. my best friend recommends her. so far I find her responsible and delicated.

    Hi gals,

    I'm oso jul05 mtb & I'm about 4.5 weeks preggie only.

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi kokopooh

    Congratulations! [​IMG]

    I only know that we can't eat chinese herbs, cooling food and cannot take cold drinks at the moment.

    So have you chosen your gynae? [​IMG]
     
  32. serrich

    serrich New Member

    kokopooh,
    Congras! Avoid those "liang" stuff like grassjelly, those long green bananas - del monte type, pineapples, coconut..
     
  33. lkf

    lkf Member

    kokopooh

    besides the "liang" stuff, avoid raw or uncoooked meat e.g. sashimi, half-boiled eggs and cut down intake of coffee, tea and cola (at most 1, 2 a day)

    u also need to take folic acid (1 5mg tablet per day).

    tomatoes

    yeah, i do agree with you that we need to rest well. I try not to exert myself too much during this period.

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi funny

    Thanks for your wishes. Happy to know that you still remember me [​IMG]I succeeded thru IVF recently. Conceiving naturally is quite difficult for me because of my endo problem.

    How is your bb doing? [​IMG]

    Hi dreamydove

    Congrats to you too! [​IMG]

    I was asked to have bedrest also for this week and I am really rotting myself away at home... Super bored mann! [​IMG]

    Hi kokopooh

    Do update us after your gynae visit next week [​IMG]
    Btw, I also feel hungry easily but I cannot eat too much at one go. If not, I will feel very uncomfortable.

    I know it is very normal for us to feel hungry. But then, dun eat too much of those unhealthy snack. Some times, we can try to eat more fruits as snack also [​IMG]

    Hi tomatoes,

    Hi Funny

    Hi tomatoes,
    like you, i am also under "house arrest". I nearly went crazy after the second day of bedrest. now watching winter sonata, time passes faster.
    You may be able to see baby's heatbeat this Sat, make sure your hubby don't missed it becos the feeling is wonderful!
     
  43. tomatoes

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi Cherry

    Would it too early to detect heartbeat? I dun even think I will be able to see anything during the scan.

    So you need to have bedrest for how long?
     
  44. lady7777

    lady7777 New Member

    aiyoh, all these mummies can rest at home and yet complaining....don think u gals will be a SAHM.
    when bb born, u gals will appreciate the time that you don need to go to work n play with bb whole day long...

    take good opportunity to read up more on pregnancy tips and parenting, or hook up on the net lor.

    kokopooh:
    when i was pregnant, i have urge to eat more too as don need to watch my figure anymore liao. But actually i don really feel hungry...jus be more careful with wat u eat lor...
     
  45. cherry123

    cherry123 New Member

    hi tomatoes,
    for my case, we detected heartbeat at around 6 weeks. you will be able to see at least a sac.
    my gynae wants me to stop work and rest at home at least until i am 3 months, thats another 1 month more! i don't think i can tanhan, will likely ask him if i can go back to work next week. i am suppose to see him weekly so that he can closely monitor my condition.

    how long is your MC?
     
  46. tomatoes

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi Cherry

    Is it a norm for gynae to ask us to have bedrest for the 1st 3 months of our pregnancy? Are your under any special condition that needs to have more rest?

    For me is that I was conceived via IVF and hence my gynae wants me to rest more juz to play safe. My MC is till end of this week. I am thinking of going back to office tomorrow.
     
  47. serrich

    serrich New Member

    cherry,
    woah, ur co so good, can accept MC for so many days??! When i told my boss i preggie, he seems to be worried.. Or maybe regretful for converting me to perm staff so soon?! Hahaha...

    Somehow I just got a feeling that he's unhappi abt it. Somemore asked me if I am carrying my bb till full term?! I tot he expect me to abort my bb?!

    cherry, tomatoes,
    Better listen to ur gynae. Take a good rest...
     
  48. poohy

    poohy Active Member

    tomatoes,

    think cherry got spotting/bleeding thus gynae want her to have more bedrest in the 1st trimester. If you do not have spotting/bleeding.. normally dun need bedrest unless of course other complications lah.

    bedrest can helps to improve blood flow to the uterus and growing bb... when bedresting, lying on your left side is a good position.

    I took 2.5 weeks medical leave also for heavy bleeding previously but my gynae actually issued hospitalization leave instead of mc. So at least it wont eat into my mc quota.. else for the rest of my pregnancy cant take a single mc liao... [​IMG] I wasnt hospitalised at that time though he did give me the option.
     
  49. tomatoes

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi Poohy

    Thanks for your explanation. I will heed my RE advice and rest more also.

    Hi Cherry

    Then you must really rest as much as possible. BB more important and work is only secondary. Take good care hor [​IMG]

    Hi serrich

    Of course you be carrying your bb to full term. That's a silly question from your boss.

    Actually I also dun dare to think how my boss will react. Somemore she is those old spinister... I am sure she is say happy for me but in her heart, she think otherwise.

    But I dun care so much... I am thinking of resigning next year end when I get my bonus after my maternity leave. I very bad hor? ;p
     
  50. poohy

    poohy Active Member

    tomatoes,

    dun worry u r not that bad compared to me... I am even thinking of looking for a new job during my maternity leave and then after that go back can quit liao lol. I had wanna leave this job but I am preggie now and cant move anywhere without giving up my maternity leave which is really not worth it... besides, during my maternity leave next year, I will be getting my bonus too!!! haha .. my company give out performance bonus in april
     
  51. serrich

    serrich New Member

    me looking forward to be a sahm! If i can strike Toto, then my wish will be fulfilled liao!! I hope to take care of my bb full time until he/she old enuf to enrol into childcare then i go find a job...
     
  52. tomatoes

    tomatoes Active Member

    Hi Poohy

    I am thinking the same as you. Actually I wanna leave my current job after I get my bonus this year end. But then now preggie, die die must "tong3" till I get my maternity benefits. But after my maternity leave is already oct/nov05. So might as well wait for another round of bonus.

    I have a friend who tendered her resignation during her maternity leave and her boss actually accepeted.
     
  53. cherry123

    cherry123 New Member

    hi tomatoes,
    as what Poohy said, i had recurring spotting (which got worst); 4 times within 2 weeks; hence the gynae wanted to be very safe and asked me to have bedrest. my boss had the same problems previously so she sound understanding when i told her about it.

    anyway, i am planning to ask gynae if i can go back to work after next week becos really boring at home.

    Poohy, yahor, he should have given me hospitalisation leave. I better check when is our year end. If it is 31 Dec, then never mind, MC day count will restart soon again.
     
  54. tomatoes

    Hi Cherry

    Your boss is so nice. I think my boss will kill me if I take long mc again.

    Juz got pray hard that everything will go smoothly.

    britni New Member

    Hi, Kokopooh
    Don't move too much too, and must be careful!

    Hey, for those who have morning sickness, everyday in the morning when u wake up, b4hand put the biscult at your bedside table.
    Eat some b4 u get up of the bed, and u can drink some sweet drinks ..... but not too much.
    Remember not to drink milk ,as it become worst.

    As for the scan, if u want to see your baby sex, and is worry that she/ he will cover it.
    Before hand, u must talk to your baby, they will know and remove it. As i tried telling my first baby that and she remove it after the first scan which she has used her hand to cover.

    Most of all, when u are 8months onwards, remember to make sure your baby move 10 times in the morning. If not moving, quickily go to the doctor, don't wait.

    If u follow this, u are quite safe, hope that this can help u all.
     
  60. lady7777

    lady7777 New Member

    ya, agree with wat britni says. Thats what i heard from experienced mums too. Hopefully all these morning sickness will go away soon.....

    sometimes really bua-tahan.

    have seen fewer posts recently. are all the gals busy???

    meanwhile, take care.
