    Hi Little dragon, yes, prayerfully, can hear heartbeat this Thursday. Should be close to 7 weeks by this Thursday. Is this your number 1 kid? This is my number 2. My number 1 is 2 and a half years old.
    Hi Wayne, your wife's EDD is so close to mine. =)Are you a first time father?
  11. spaahkles

    spaahkles New Member

    My tentative EDD is on 12th Oct and I have yet to make a trip to the gynaecologist. I hv learnt (thru the hard way) that early scans can be very stressful and scary cos most of the time, you will not be able to see alot of the stuff that's meant to be there. So I have decided to wait it out this time and only go for a scan at 8+ weeks. [​IMG] **Fingers crossed**

    Skies, ur prayer will be answered... sure gonna see baby heartbeat pit pop pit pop... kekeke
    tis is my #2... my #1 is *shy* just turned 6... hehe
    For me, backpain, naseous, not appetite yet easier hungry, tired but now become very light sleeper, boobs pain but bearable kind...
  15. spaahkles

    spaahkles New Member

    Little dragon, when are you headed off to the gynae? Mine's also booked but only close to the 9th week. I remember when I scanned at 5w, 6w and 8w last year, it was horrid! First they told me can't find the embryo, only the gest sac, so it may be a blighted ovum. Then I had to keep going back, and then it was weak heartbeat etc.... In the end heartbeat stopped and I had to go for a d&c last nov. Really traumatic if you ask me.

    spaahkles, my appt is next weekend... by then should be about 7+weeks liao.. so should be able to see something...

    Which gynae are you seeing? Your #1?

    So far skies and me is having #2, any one else?? [​IMG]
  17. aspialle

    aspialle Active Member

    Dear all, if u miss ur menses, how early u all detect ur pregnant? I missed mine for 3 rd coming week... Boobs pain too and backaches. Easily hungry n gained weight but doc ask me wait for end if this week to test again.
  18. aspialle> My wife waited till 5 days of missed period for the BFP. Perhaps, different bodies may give off hCG in different amounts enough to be detected at their stage of pregnancy.
  19. spaahkles

    spaahkles New Member

    Little D> Thanks! [​IMG] Yes I hope that everything will turn out well this time. Yups, my #1... As for gynae, I'm actually living in Aust [​IMG]

    Aspialle> I tested a few days before my period... I used test kits which allows for testing before your period is due, they are more sensitive and detect lower levels of hcg e.g 50-100 iu.
  20. 0505bride

    0505bride Active Member

    aspialle, i tested 2 days after menses due... cause i got very clear symptoms once i ovulate.. so from there count 14 days... [​IMG]
    do u know when u ovulate?

    spaahkles, u are stayin in Aust... cool place... hehehe i always wanted to go... but never have chance.... [​IMG]
    it will be... positive oki... [​IMG]

    information like:
    3.Expecting # baby
    (what other infor??)

    for those who yet to see gynae (like me) can give after u seen the gynae or at ur convenience... [​IMG]
  22. spaahkles

    spaahkles New Member

    Little D... Yes its a cool place, not so stressful as compared to sg! They do have funny practices thoh, like how you don't get to see a gynae till you are 10w and you must be referred by a GP. You should come over for a holiday - I think its a great place for families with kids and you'll definitely feel very relaxed!

    My EDD should be around 11 Oct. Now I am about 5 weeks plus pregnant. Going to see gynae for the first time next week so I hope everything is ok (kinda worried too). This is my #2, my #1 is only 7 months old so I am worried #2 might not be growing well (Too close to my first delivery). I am seeing Dr Heng at Bedok (Parkway East Hospital)

    Hi Little D,
    My #1 and #2 are 6 and 4 respectively. Both boys.

    Hi Sha,
    I would call mine the evening sickness. It usually happens after 6pm and continues till I sleep.

    By the way, anyone has brown spottings? I have some brown spottings last week so my gynae gave me duphaston
  33. waynechan_79

    waynechan_79 New Member

    hi Hjon.. my wife got spotting.. took jab n med too..

    hosp for 4 days, condition ok.. discharged.. but still on n off got dark red n dark brown spottings.. emm she is worried ..
  34. spaahkles

    spaahkles New Member

    Hi little d... Ya waiting till 10w is pretty dreadful.. But the the GP can always send u off to the radiologists first if you want an early scan. This time round I can go to the gynae at 8w cos I'm high risk due to previous miscarriage. [​IMG] So at least its not such a long wait!

    Dear dragon, thank u for collating the information. The following is mine:
    1. Nick: skies
    2. LMP: 29th Dec
    3.Expecting # baby 10/4/12
    5.Hospital KKH

    I do not have a specific gynea as I went via the polyclinic and got referred to KKH.. Think will be seeing a team of gyneas during my pregnancy...

    Looks like there are many second time mummies here. Does your first child become more clingy after u got pregnant? My little gal becomes super clingy after I got pregnant, even though I have not told her...

    Welcome all the new mummies... 
  36. mecy

    mecy Member

    Hi sha85,
    Maybe u can put ur first one in a playgroup... By the time ur second one arrives, ur no. 1 should be about 20 months... A few hours at the playgroup will help make a great difference in helping u cope with ur new arrival..

  38. dey

    Did the gynae ask your wife to bedrest? She needs to rest more and walk less..especially if she on and off still have spotting. I have no more spotting since Tuesday and hope it stay this way.

    Little D,

  41. mecy

    mecy Member

    Hi little dragon,
    Yes, heavily subsidized. Think I only paid $28 for the consultation... Less than $50 for the scan...

    My first one was complicated and cost me closed to $10k in Mt Alvenia... She was underweight and had to stay in the neonatal ward for one week... So this time round, I thought I better go for the cheaper route, just in case complications arise again..

    Ya.. Your girl will be so excited.... She will see the di di or Mei Mei as her doll and help you take care... 
  42. dey

    dey Active Member

    Hi Skies,

    What type of complication do you have?
    My #2 is a premature baby ( born 32+ weeks) and i spent 10K+ in gleneagles too becos he has to stay in neonatal for 1 week but i still stick to my gynae for this pregnancy cos she knows my condition well.
  43. 0505bride

    0505bride Active Member

    skies, but tat would mean u will see any gynae that is on duty rite?
    which week did ur girl came out at?
    she is super excited... cause its like her wish comes true.... since she know things, she have been on and off asking... imagine after 6 yrs... :p

    Njon, i agree w u... especially when u undergo certain thing when u had #1, better to stick to one that knows u...

    My gal actually was delivered on 37 weeks... So consider full term... But half way through my pregnancy, my amniotic fluid became quite low... So started me on aspirin midway... When I saw the gynea for a routine check at 37 weeks.. he said that my fluid has dropped very low and my baby was starving in my womb.. So arranged me to go for c section the following day... He thought that the baby would be at least 2 kg but she was only 1.8 kg when born..

    This time round, I told my kkh gynea my condition so she said that she would start me off on aspirin once we can see the baby's heartbeat...

    Little dragon, u r right.. I will see whichever gynea is on duty... Last week, I saw the gynea and she wrote a detailed report of my condition on the paper..think probably for the next gynea to follow up.. So far, I am comfortable with the arrangements.. Will monitor and see how...if not good, will go back to my old gynea...

    Njon, why was hrs delivered at 32 weeks?
  45. mecy

    mecy Member

    Hi Njon, mine was born on 37 weeks.. So consider full term... Halfway through my pregnancy, gynea detected that my amniotic fluid was quite low.. So started me on aspirin mid way.. When I went for my routine check at 37 weeks, he noted that the fluid was at a very low level and that my baby was starving.. So arranged me to have a c section the following day.. He thought the baby would be at least 2 kg but who knew she was only 1.8 kg... So had to stay in the neonatal ward until she was heavier...

    Why was ur baby born at 32 weeks?

    Skies, I'm also referred thru polyclinic. Wanna save a bit of money esp since I'm not earning now. But my appt is only on 16Mar which is ways too late. Plus I will be traveling in early Mar. Would really wanna see gynae b4 I travel. When is your first appt?

    For the other mummies, do you feel super tired lately? I've been sleeping at 9 plus every night and waking up at 6am. Even my baby sleeps shorter..
