hi gals, i just went for my first gynae appt yesterday.. so excited to see the heartbeat of the baby. I am 6 weeks too, just like novakido! =)
Thanks ladies...

Shirley what is LMP? Last Menstrual Period ah? Jan-32days, Feb-31days, Mar-30days, April-Conceived. Cross fingers for you!

Congrats daymoon! When is your baby due?! I haven't gone for the check up yet leh... Will call the Gynae tmr...
Babydust!!! Sparkle sparkle!

Meilik! When is your due date huh?
My due date is 26 Dec. haha, xmas baby and present for me.

But i am going for c-sec, since my 1st was a c-sec, so should be 1 week earlier EDD around 19 Dec.
Hi everyone,
I am 6 weeks too and my LMP same as novakido! =)

Hi Novakido,
My first one also c-sec also.
1st time pregnant was c-sec then 2nd time will be c-sec huh?
Hello gals,
Congrats to all MTB.
Tomoro I'll be in my 7 weeks. First time mum.
Due date 01 Jan 09 new year baby.
Excited but also worried as there's a cyst in my right ovary so got to wait till my next gynea appt to see if it has disappear or reduce in size if not got to remove it thru operation.
Just got to pray everything will go smoothly.
DeDe- The cyst is corpus luteum...forming food for baby before placenta takes over, it should disappear. I have that too.
Thanks Meilik, felt relief after hearing tat from u.
the doc told me if i have extreme pain in my right ovary got to call her immediately n if the csyt doesn't disappear by 12 weeks then got to remove it thru op, so kind of worries me.
Tks again.
hi novakido..lmp is last menstrual period, which means the 1st day of ur last period. pregnancy weeks is calculated from ur LMP too. for my case, my LMP was 17th march, thus if i strike, my due date is ard 22nd jan 09. Recently i had very strong craving for food, and on last monday i had some pinkish spotting...not sure if signaling my period coming soon or wat..?!u mentioned tat u havent visit ur gynae yet, have u start taking folic acid? if u havent, better start now
hi porky...long time never log in in the forum already..recently been very busy form work, this morning feel like laze around, too stress from work. tat's why log in to forum to look ard! How've u been? so, u will be trying after the 2nd cycle menses? i only tried after 2nd cycle, but not sure will strike or not..if not strike, my period will be coming end of this wk.
Hi All,

I'm new here! So happy to see this thread

About 6 weeks now, EDD should be first week of Jan 2009 too! Fun77 & novakido, think our EDD should be almost the same time !!

Went to gynae last week, did v-scan and confirm there's a little bubble...thou can't see much, but I shed tears of happiness..undescrible feelings..hopefully bb develops well..

For the first time, experience mild MS this morning..felt quite terrible
anyone feel the same too?

Hope to know more MTBs and may all of us have a smooth smooth 9 months ahead...

Sprinkle baby dusk *ting ting* to those TTC! Hopefully you can join us soon

Melik! How do you know to go thru C sec or natural birth? My appt with the Gynae is in June... Piang, Wish I am in Singapore now then I could go to the Gynae immediately! Guess I have to be patient!

Shirley, you mean your LMP is 17th April right not Mar? If not confirm preggie liao right? Mine was 7 April... 10 days before you hehe...
So I called the gynae, the nurse told me baby should be due 12 Jan! That's my parents in law wedding anniversary, they are so happy! Shirley maybe the pink spotting can be implantation spotting? I did went to a "clinic" to confirm the pregnancy and the doc prescribe some pre natal before I see the gynae. I am in the States now, so the appointment time is atrocious!

Fun77 congrats! When is your EDD?

Precious! So fun, you me and Fun77 should be about the same time then! So cool right... My pregnancy symptoms are little tightness around lower abdominal, breast soreness and nauseous in the evenings... Luckily appetite still good. I can't wait to see my "little bubble" but my first appt is in June
hi novakido..yup, u're right! my LMP was 17th april..hehe...hope can join u all in Jan thread too..take care ya..hope u enjoy ur pregnancy stay in US! hehe..
hi shirley, i am fine. hehe. in fact, Dr give me green light to try after 1st cycle, cos he say i recover well. so i tried loh. but did not strike lah. now my 2nd cycle completed liao. so i must work double hard. haha. hops to hear good news from u. i also really hope to join those mtbs here soon !
hi novakido,
my period cycle is more or less similar like yours. may i know on which CD (cycle day) you start to "work" with hubby? Is it true can't do it every day because the sperm quality will be not so good to make baby? sorry to ask such questions, but i'm really clueless as this is my first attempt for 1st baby.
hi mtbs, so glad to see this thread booming and sparkling with baby dust!

Nova,my EDD is 5th Jan 2009. will you be delivering in states or singapore? =)

Precious bb, think we might be having the same EDD since yours is also in the first week of Jan!

Dear all,so happy to see many 2009 mtbs here.
Congrats novakido & all mtbs!
Me too,just went to see my gynae..scan but can't really hear the heartbeat..Currently around 5 & half weeks.
Edd is on 10th Jan 2009.
Same as Meilik & Fun77, will be going for c-section cos my 1st baby was through c-section too..
*sigh* thinking of going through the c-section pain again,phobia..
novakido - I have a stubborn cervix that wont dilate for my first child. My gynea prefer i have a spinal c-sect again cos it is faster and easier for me body to recover.

For this time round, Dec time my gynea going for holiday, so he already hint hint me i should have c-sec 7-10 days before he goes on holiday lor. I like him cos he does a nice "bikini cut" no wound marks at all.

Wah..your appointment so far away neh
baby_blessed. Actually I started BD straight after AF! Coz we want to build the mood hehe dun want because want baby then BD! Must BD and enjoy it too! Hehe... And we do it every other day especially during the ovulation week, otherwise sometimes every 3 days... Ya cannot do it everyday, its very tiring and I also heard sperm quality not good. But I tried using the OPK and also track my temperature plus the CM but all not accurate one so I just hamtam, every other day during the "Ovulation week" and every 3 days during the non Ovulation week since every woman have different body cycle. hehe...

But my friend gave a tip last mth and I dunnoe if its her but it works and we strike. She says example, "you have your period today, Thursday, so exactly 2 weeks later that Thursday, DO IT!!!" Hehe...

Audrey, Ooh I saw C section of Discovery channel very painful... after that hard to carry heavy stuff also ya... Coz need abdominal muscles...
audrey: did you have a bad experience on your c-sec? Mine was spinal c-sect, so smooth and not much pain and could walk the next day around the hospital.

Fun77: 2nd time pregnancy may not need to go thru c-sec. Can do virginal birth also. But it is all up to indivdual and what your gynea's opinon. Like for me, i cannot do virginal birth... simply cannot dilate so second round no point doing it again.
Nova, ya indeed was very painful especially when I needed to go to ladies after lying on the hospital bed for 2 nights..the moment when I need to stand up,the sharp pain was really unbearable.But was lucky to recover quite fast within 2 weeks..Afterall,I think natural birth will be a better choice..

Meilik, mine was a c-section on the bikini line..so whenever I use my abdominal muscles to sit up or walk,the sharp pain will come..I was so envious to see many mummies at the hospital walking thru & fro with their babies so happily but yet I'm stuck on the bed. =(

Oh btw,I was thinking about booking a confinement lady..though its still early to plan but I think if mummies due in Jan 09,the confinement period might stretch over to CNY.From my previous confinement lady,she actually mention that most confinement ladies will not take up any bookings near CNY as they might need to go back and celebrate with their families.
