Hi hi everyone, I am a first time mum and am currently in my 6th week! Really excited and hopefully everything will be smooth. Hopefully with this thread, I would be able to share experiences with many mummies to be!
hi shirley, so u are here ! hehe. long time never chat with u liao. i thot u already strike leh. i also trying very hard. and hope to strike next month if my AF did not report. i just finished my 2nd cycle early this week. i hope u can strike too since ur menses still not reported yet. good luck ok ?
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.
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.
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.
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 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 !
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.
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.
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.
Hi everyone, me also just discovered me pregnant last wed. Went to see a gynae few days ago, he mentioned to me that 1 in every 5 women miscarriage, so he asked me to take extra care. He explained no need to take package for now. He also given me some an tai medicine coz i been having some brown discharge a couple of days back. Anyone gynae told u all tat too?
hi ong, congrats to you. my 1st gynae told me that..actually brown discharge is common for 1st trimester but also must take good care. try not to move around too much or squat down too much loh. i am not preggy now but still TTC now (got miscarriage in feb 2008..) if u wish to talk, can msn (firstname.lastname@example.org) to me. take care ya.
Puppylove! congrats. Is annum nice? I am just drinking normal fresh milk leh... Only once a day though... Shall try to drink one more time a day...
Hey Ong, yes I heard about 1 in 5 miscarriages in fact I known of a few friends who have miscarriages before but most pregnancies end up smooth. So keep your mind positive and healthy! Don't worry too much, Rest more!
