Just tested positive, will be seeing gynae on fri...
hi! I also just tested positive beginning of the week.No idea edd on june or july?
Is this your 1st pregnancy?
u can calculate your EDD based on the first day of your last mense..u might want to go to www.babaycenter.com to find out your due date
Any july 06 MTB?
Hi Sleepy Garfield,
I will have my scan this friday and hopefully I will be July 06 MTB.
how many weeks are u now?
Should be around 5-6wk, last period was 2nd Oct. I had a MC early aug, hope this time is gonna be fine.
How about you?
my last period was also on 2 Oct! my EDD will be 9 Jul 06.
Went for checkup last fri but still couldn't detect heartbeat, gynae asked me to go back again on 19th.
Oh, I went last Friday too but she suggest to wait for another week to scan since it was too early. So she gave me some pills to support the pregnancy in view of my last MC.
which gynea you are seeing? I am with Lisa Chin at GlenE.
My gynae didn't give me any medication at all, perhaps cos this is my 2nd pregnancy. The 1st one was very troublesome, got to see gynae every week for a jab to stabilise the foetus, this round doc said quite stable..however i get morning sickness!
I'm seeing Dr Teoh Eng Soon at Shaw Centre.
I don't feel much morning sickness and that makes me worry. In July when i suddenly lost the ms feeling, subsequent scan the heartbeat was no longer there.
it's a blessing that you don't get MS. i don't get any MS for my 1st pregnancy, everything was as breeze and my gal turns out very healthy...
Some pple will only get it at week 8, some don't get it at all..while i'm the so called less fortunate one, i get it at week 4!
nowadays don't know why i gets cranky easily, keep on throwing tantrum at my hubby, and i feel so uncomfortable the whole day.
i guess it's god willing if i should have a child, so i try not to bother too much as well.
Well, man should get part of the pain and discomfort we have to go thru during pregnancy?
I feel tired easily, dizziness and can't seem to sleep well at night, wake up around 2-3am everyday for an hour or two before i can get back to sleep again.
You at work?
me too! i also can't sleep well at night, and my timing of waking up is amazingly the same every day regardless what time i go to bed. I'll wake up at 2.15am, 4.15am & 6.15am! Everyday without fail..tat's why i feel so sleepy & tired throughout the day..
yeap, me working...at raffles place...u?
I am working at Jurong Island, yeah in the middle of nowhere!
hey u must remember to keep all your antenatal checkup receipts cos now can claim medisave $450.
Hmmm... I don't know anything about that. I threw away the last one. How to claim?
u just accumulate all your antenatal checkup receipts, then when u admit to hosp , u submit to the admission officer, they'll help to submit together with our hosp bill..for antenatal checkup, u can claim up to $450.
my gynae also didn't tell me tat, i get to know it thru hosp website and confirmed with a fren who is also pregnant.
hello everybody? I;m new here too! I tested positive on 1 Nov only even though my last menses was 16 sept.(the wk before negative) Not sure my EDD in June or July. Have not seen doc yet...
hi sleepy garfield, just saw yr previous post many days back(which I answered you!!) This is my no.2.
I didn't see any reply in my previous post, that's why i created another thread...u can go to www.babycenter.com & make use of the due date calculator to calculate your EDD.
Why didn't u go to a gynae?
well, my hubby says it's ok to wait and i think that I'm fine. Prob do so say next wk or so. I'm a little paranoid coz I had a miscarriage early in May.I;m still have MS and feeling all the syptoms so I guess the baby is fine.
i think your is a jUne 06 bb. Hv u started taking folic acid? This is a MUST!
your 1st one a boy or gal?
hey sleepy garfield,
thanks so much for your concern. I took the EDD calculator just now, and edd is June 25... my first is a girl, just turned 3 yrs. You? Do you think if we carry on talking like this ,we will jam pack the thread...HA.. Well, i think you must be abt 5 wks pregnant. The edd calculator says i'm 7wks.Hmm... Oh yes, i;ve been taking folic all this while.
my gal is turning 3 in coming Jan! We can continue to jam the thread since rite now not many pple chatting...till someone chase us out, then we stop..keke...
ya, i'm just 5 weeks preggy but i had bad MS!
Your tummy grew bigger liao?
Hi Sleepy garfield,
I can't wear any of my work clothes now, I've gone to maternity pants now as my tummy is super bloated. I think it is more gas and being 2nd pregnancy, i think the tummy stretched already.My no 1, I had spotting and v v bad MS, so bad that I was almost on drip becoz I took hormone jabs and progesterone pills(which increases yr MS), I had MS all the way to 7mths. No choice but to "dong". I will throw out at least 7-8 times and hence, quit my job. Ha. No 2 which failed in may, had MS immediately after I discovered preggy, all the way till the day they did D&C. Now, the no.3 .I vomit of on on, not everyday though.I cannot stand smell(cooking) in general, totally bloated, do feel like vomitting when more hungry, i also get dizzy spells all the time now....hope all these means everything is well and growing. has your tummy grew already(esp nearer the pelvic area?)
Ironically, my tummy becomes flatter than before , i think cos i can't really eat, feels hungry but just eat 2 mouthful, and feel so full liao...
my first one was a breeze, don't know why this one give me MS.
Ur tummy grew bigger liao? i was hoping i still can hide my pregnancy till end of 1st trimester...but heard alot of pple saying 2nd one will grow faster..
hi. congrats on your pregnancy!!
im actually from the June MTB thread.
for those whom have not chose your gyane yet, you might find the attached link useful: -
Personally, I am using DR LC Foong. I seen 4 other gynaes before settling on him. He is an extremely friendly, caring and professional doctor. Highly Recommended!!!
i juz saw my gynae today and confirmed that i am 5.5 weeks preggie. edd 10/07/06. managed to see the bb heart beating through the scan and was so amazed that i almost teared. bad new is that doc also detected a blood clot which she said can cause miscarriage of not treated so she prescribed 2 weeks of progesterone to stabalise the pregnancy. truth is, i was quite dissapointed on hearing this as i thought everything was going well cos no bad cramps or spotting. now i am so worried. anyone encountered the same thing?
Don't worry too much, at least the gynea find out potential problem and early treatment should help to get rid of the problem.
I had an accident this morning, a taxi bang into rear end of my car while I stop for a boy to cross the zebra crossing. Hope I will be fine, will go to the doctor later.
are u ok? do u feel any pain?
Millie, my EDD is just one day before yours! Don't worry, everything will be fine, the more stress you're , the higher the risk, be positive!
I had endometriosis, and during my 1st pregnancy, gynae said my chance of miscarriage is 80%, i got to go for a jab every week, now my gal is coming to 3 yrs old already, and no. 2 is on the way...
My neck doesn't feel exactly right, and a tiny discomfort in my stomach. Maybe it was from the shock.
I am waiting for my replacement car from the rental company since my car bonnet can't be closed after the accident. Been driving for 7 years and this is my first accident.
while waiting, you got to keep your movement to a minimal. Try not to walk too much.
hi sleepy garfield and pepper
thanks for the advice and consolation. trying not to worry but guess i cant help it. now hubby telling me to quit my job on doc's advice. so now have to worry abt finances as well as the pregnancy **sigh**
pepper, do keep us updated after your visit to doc. hope both u n bb will be ok.
Congrats to all MTBs!
Hi Millie, I'm from the May MTB. We are in the similar situation. My gynae detected a blood cyst during my 6 wks of pregnancy. He gave me 2 wks MC and told me to take complete rest, not to walk abt too much. And told me to take wkly jabs and 2 different types of hormone pills daily 3 times a day. Thank God this really helped. Now I am 12 wks preggie.
Take care and get your gynae to monitor you closely.
if your hubby can afford, why not just quit? I can understand your worries, nowadays it's quite difficult to survive on single income esp when a little one is on the way. Perhaps you can go on unpaid leave for 3 mths? Once u pass the 1st trimester, bb shd be quite stable.
I actually encounter the same thing as you. I was having spotting since i was 4 week preggy.. my gynae see a blood cot & say i am on a threatening miscarriage.
I have to continue with progesterone.. for like 2 weeks already.. only recently the spotting is much improved. I had hear the bb heartbeat only recently and i heard it is a great step ahead already.
I just saw my gynea and was given 3 days MC, but I think I will go back to work tomorrow. Feel guilty as I was on a lot of MC this year already... Doc say the accident shouldn't affect the bb. did a scan and saw the baby sac 1.6cm, EDD is 11/07/06. Haven't seen the heartbeat, worry as my last pregnancy also has very slow growth and MC after that.
thank you for sharing your experiences with me.
juz cald my workplace and told them i would be taking a leave of absence cos hubby insisted. he said we will have to manange on whatever we have. i juz feel like i going to be a burden to him.
yasmin/icy, wud u know how the clot will be expelled from the uterus? like i mentioned, i dun have any spotting (touch wood). if i should spot, is it normal or should i be concerned. doc did not say i need bedrest juz dun walk around too much. sorry to ask u gals so many queations juz that i 4got to ask doc all these questions.
LIke what the rest of the girls say, dun worry too much
I had spotting when i was in my 7th week. I visited the gynae and that was my first visit. I dun even know why there was spotting. The gynae removed a blood clot for me and he even showed me the clot. After that, i took a hormone jab and the gynae it wll be effective in stopping spotting. I was on progestorone pills (two pills per morning) for a week.
Everything's fine after that and i am approaching 16th week
To the rest of the ladies here, congrats!
Glad to hear that both you & bb are fine..don't worry, you shd be able to see the heartbeat by end of next week..I've yet to see mine too..
Take great care and glad that everything is fine. Don't worry too much coz it will stress you and bb out. Be positive. I had bad no.2 experience and lost it this yr too. Can imagine how you feel.Be POSITIVE!
Hi Sleepy Garfield,
I've decided to see doc and have made appt to see him next Tue...after thinking for a while. you know, overnight, i developed a very bad cold and soresore throat.... I really felt a bit panicky as i don't know what to take. Since I don't know the condition of the baby, I am refraining fr all medicine. But its really suffering. Am keeping my fingers crossed.... All you mothers must take care,the flu bug and the weather is really bad these days.
I'm new to this thread. I'm in my 6th week now, baby due on 02 July 06. Both my hubby and I are so supper excited about the baby.
Anyone has nice and affordable maternity boutiques to recommend? I've gone to Maternity Exchange at Specialist Centre, don't think that the clothes there are worth the price. Rental cost the same as some new clothes in other boutique.
Congrats! Ur first one? Saw the heartbeat already?
I was told 9mois in pLaza sing sells very modern yet affordable maternity clothings...
I used tested on the Home Pregnancy Kit and it came out positive..
I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism this aug, and currently on medication. Dunno if this will affect the baby.
I've already arranged to c a gynae tomorrow morning. Dr Roy Ng from Mount E, anybody heard of him? Is he good?
i suggest you stop the medication first, don't take the risk.
Yes, you better stop the medication first if your condition is not very serious or very dependant on the drug.
Is this your first?
Hi Pepper & Sleepy Garfield,
Thx. my thyroid is very dependent on the drugs...so I can't afford to stop taking them.
This is my 1st preg.
how do u all feel when u r pregnant? I sometimes have aching pain in my adominum & recently keep having diarrea.
YB, if that's the case , perhaps you shd give your GP a call now, check with him if it's still safe for you to take the medicines.
This is my 2nd pregnancy. 1st one was a breeze, no morning sickness at all except my buttock very painful when it expanded...This time round, i'm not so lucky, i get morning sickness the 1st day i missed my menses. These few days it gets worse and i really puke almost after every dinner...maybe i shd call it night sickness instead...on top of that i do get some pulling kind of cramp on the lower abs which doc said it's normal.
Did you eat the wrong food tat leads to diarrhoea? Remember not to take crabs, flower crabs are ok but not the normal ones.And no raw/uncooked food such as sashimi or half boiled eggs.
hi YB and newmomhappy
congrats to you both on being july mtb!
YB, like you i have been having diarrhoea instead of being constipated like what preggies supposed to experience. can't recall eating anything out of the ordinary. but i'd much prefer to pass motion easily rather than being constipated.
sleepygarfield, looks like i gotta add crabs to my already long list of things i cannot eat. hee hee!
Just discovered to be pregnant yesterday.1st time and do not know what to do..
i have visited GP yesterday and he has given me some pink color tablets..i have not seen any gynae. last date of mense 4th oct..any recommendations?
CONGRATS!! I also discovered I'm pregnant yesterday. I had my 1st gynae visit today.
Is the pink colour tablets Folic Acid?? It's supposed to be good for the development of ur feotus.You might be about 4 weeks pregnant.
You may wanna visit a gynae to do a scan to c if everything is alright. Let me know if you need recommendations.
Hi sleepygarfield & millie,
Thanks for ur advise. I went to c a gynae this morning and he took over monitoring of my thyroid condition. My medication was been changed to PTU as carbimozole has some side-effects.
I'll call my GP to let him know that I won't be going back to c him about my thyroid.
I dun have much symtoms except that my left adominal has a dull aching pain. but just discovered that the fertised egg was from the left ovary...no wonder I feel so uncomfortable for a week.
The gynae told me that I was only about 2.5 weeks pregnant, so can't c much..I haven't broke the news to my parents & in-laws.
I'm very careful of my diet cos I'm not supposed to eat seafood as I have thyroid. So I dun think I have food poisoning...thanks for ur advice!!
I guess it's better to have diarrhoea rather than constipation lah..haa..haa..
My due date is around 19 Jul 06.
Hi YB, Mulberry and all,
Congrats for the baby dust!!!!YB, glad you went to see doc. Never compromise medication during pregnancy esp if you do not know whether it's safe. The dull ache is pretty normal, the gynae usu says it's bcause your uterus is starting to change and expand to prepare for the baby, that is why you feel cramping and ache. For me, when I drink lots of water, it helps to ease the cramps.Maybe you should try that too..Food poisoning can be anything, I try to avoid those cooked food(left outside for few hours)and dishes and rice. Try to buy food that is cooked on the spot, safer this way.....
how are you??? (opps.. i just read what I last wrote to you after your accident... i hope i didn't send u the wrong message by adding "lost it this yr too." I was referring to myself so don't get the wrong message... ) hope you have rested well and I';m sure you will see yr baby's heartbeat the next visit.tag
Thanks!! My gynae said it's because the blood is flowing to the womb, that's y have I have aching feeling...it's just a slight discomfort, nothing serious. Thanks for your advice. I'll try to drink more water & see if it'll help. Btw, can pregnant ladies drink Yacult?? I love drinking Yacult every night after dinner or before sleep.
Normally I dun like to take the cooked food in the hawker centre cos dunno how long it's been put out. Sometimes can see the flies around...yucks!!
As for fruit juices, what kind of fruits should I avoid? And what is safe to consume??
Can we claim medisave for our antenatal checkup at the gynae? I was told by the clinic nurse that we can only claim medisave for hospitalisation & delivery.
I read from some of the ladies here that we can claim up to $450 from medisave for Antenatal Checkup. Is it true?
Many people say to avoid drinks that are cold and cooling esp when you get cramps. Its as if to say cramping will get worse.I still do take cold drinks esp when i feel like throwing up, helps to keep things down a bit. Yacult should be fine but sugar quite high. I tend to avoid taking to much sugar as its easy to get gestational diabetes, esp if its for no.1 child. baby will grow big v fast also.during 1st trimester, my own gynae asked me to avoid jackfruit and pineapple as they are considered "strong", maybe something inside the fruit triggers something??However, after that, i took almost any fruit according to my liking, even durian.ha ha... coconut water, somesay during 7 or 8 mths to drink.up to you to decide.
I've got hyperthyroid too, my doctor told me can't stop the medication for Thyroid. Cos Hyperthroid is prompt for miscarriage. Don't stop your medicine on your own ok. My doctor told me to do monthly blood test to ensure that my thyroid condition is not affected by the pregnancy.
I am on 5mg of carbimazole, waiting for next week to come before i take test to see if i am pregnant.
