How to read the chart? Haha.. I'm so blur looking at it. I have no gender preference. As long as baby is healthy, I'm happy! Hubby is hoping for a girl cause no.1 is a boy but to me, as long as my baby has big eyes like his big brother hehe, I'll be happy cause mummy here has small eyes >.<

No.1 is 100% carbon copy of daddy and inherited hubbby's good genes of big eyes and fair skin so hoping no.2 will inherit hub's genes as well! Haha..

I tried to calculate the gender at the website but the calculated month and age is not correct leh. I thought lunar age is 1 yr older than eng age but it was 2 yrs older.

anewmummy (anewmummy): actually till now my mum hasn't stopped me from eating anything except for papaya and pineapple. Both my mil and mum just cautioned about taking too much cold drinks tats all. But since i read up on my own, i just follow the internet on What to eat and what not to..

E'leen Lau (leenmummy): Guess that goes perfectly for me. My parents and grandparents both have diabetics and my sister had gestational for her first which went away after she delivered. But i am trying to keep myself controlled over sweets and sweet drinks. Hopefully that helps..

Sapphire05 (sapphire05): From week 20 we will be able to know the baby's gender.

Though im not Chinese i just tried the baby gender using the link someone suggested above and it says girl.. Hahahahhh. Hope it comes true.. =)

Usha, you may want to check with gynae. My gynae prescribed me vitamin b for nausea.... It helps me. I think people said don't eat cold stuff or anything will cause contraction.

For me now it is 10 weeks and symptoms subside that I don't feel pregnant except some bloatness. Hope everything is fine. Anyone invest in a Doppler to hear heartbeat?

Anyone has toddler or baby at home? I have a 10 months old and need to carry here and there! Sometimes it makes me feeling tired. I read and it should be fine so log as listen to your body.

Ling! Good luck!! I am nervous over it too which scheduled in first week of Jan as I am old, higher risk!! I am scared!

Sapphire I thought around 14-16 weeks we should be able to tell gender? If it says a girl then it is 100% girl if it says a boy it may turn out a girl also.. ?

Happy holidays everyone for next week!

Hi anewmummy,

I have a 16 mth old.. he is constantly making me carry him or crawling/stepping across my tummy though I will try to stop him at times.. guess he can't help it.. it is his need for attention.. I am also so tired these days and my hb is overseas at work.. lucky stay with my parents now so they can help..

Hi Berries.. both my hubby and I prefer a girl.. but the whole world including this chart, guessed / stated that I maybe having a boy. So we have now grown ok to the idea of having a boy. Hahaa... I prefer girl coz can play doll-up mah! Hahaha... My hubby prefer girl coz as always "daddy's girl".


Hi Anewmummy... nope, didnt invest in the Doppler.

My next appointment to see my gynae is on my week 15.. hopefully I can see the gender then

good morning ladies
according to the babycenter gender predictor, i'll be expecting a girl
which is good since my #1 is a boy. haha, think i won't be using any other chart cos want to keep my hopes up!

on diabetes, yes for me, the condition went away after i delivered. i was expecting it this round, since high chance to get again. however, hope won't be so soon otherwise there goes the feasting for xmas &amp; cny, boo boo. i was trying to negotiate w the doc not to do the OGTT so soon, but she said NO


i only remember the diet was really really strict then. otherwise the reading would go haywire. i was like hungry most of the time. had to also take insulin jab once a day during the last stage of pregnancy cos reading was high even though i controlled my diet. sigh, hope it's just controlled diet this time round.

Hey Berries I think you type Abby instead of Addy. 

I just vomited yest, the last time I vomited was 1st Dec. I was hospitalized in London after tahan for 7 days due to dehydration n excessive vomiting, nausea n giddiness. Even smells n motion will vomit.

Was given iv drip n iv medications. After I was better they gave me oral medications. I stayed less than 24hrs as I was due to fly back to S'pore n my daughter was waiting for me.

I haven't been taking the 2 types of medications they prescribed for nausea &amp; vomiting. Dun likd to ingest so much medication.

Addy: I didn't do the OSCAR test for my #1 too. We just trust that God has blessed us with a healthy child.

I drank lots of cold drinks during my #1 pregnancy but my daughter has no phlegm whatsoever n every1 said she has very strong lungs n can cry so loud once out of the womb.

I just stopped breastfeeding when my daughter is 3.5 yrs old cos of my hg condition. If not I would have continued.

Now my daughter doesn't really want to drink milk (fresh milk or formula). Not even 250ml...she loves to breastfeed.

So I give her tofu. Haven't got her any yogurt yet. I let her eat goat's milk sweets. But not too many.

Berries: yup I hope the nausea n vomiting will go away soon cos I have quite enuf of not enjoying my food n drinks. Now i can only take small portions. My HB says I loved to eat. 

Wow.. I just realise that from the chart.. if your lunar age is between 31-35.. there are higher chances of having a girl..
 

anewmummy

Member
Yeah... It is 50-50 guess right? Hmm

It is safe for orange juice I am still drinking every day...

Any mum starts mummy milk powder?

Abby I admire you can breast feed for so long. I don't have milk. Well I tried hard for both babies, both stop less than 2 months. Stress? Don't try enough? Emotion? Well you tell me. I have no idea. Second one I consulted lactation, bought expensive pumps, manual express, it is better than first but still not enough. End up fever few times because blocked blah blah blah... Enough nagging so this time round I thought not even to try!! Bad thoughts ah? Mm

Addy, 16 months toddler wow, that is a period always sticky to you I can imagine. I regretted so much when I seldom hug my elder while preg with second. So enjoy carrying him!

Addy: usually now I drink nutrisoy sugarless, bandung, yakult. Ribena only on my better days. My body doesn't like plain water, taste funny but I try to drink some.

For my constipation I take Brands Prune and mixed berries essence. It's very effective for me.

Yup I breastfeed cos my daughter dun like artificial teats since birth, so no bottle feeding or even pacifier. My HB n I decided b4 birth that I will breastfeed as long as possible. 2yrs+ I only bf-ed in the morning after she wakes n at night b4 sleep.

It's ok if cannot bf, diff babies diff experience. As long as the
baby gets nutrition n is full.

Kate Middleton could stay in hospital longer, I couldn't. Anyway I dun like to stay in hospital so boring n keep disturbing my sleep to take parameters.

For 1st pregnancy I bought mum milk, but I didn't religiously take it, after give birth still have alot leftover. Only my vitamins, n omega fish oil. So this time I
dun see the point. N my body doesn't accept milk.

What is the average birth weight of babies in S'pore? Dr Paul Tseng said my daughter 3.69kg is not considered big. He asked cos he wanted to know why I had an emergency c-section for #1. I saw a chiropractor last yr.

I think my pelvic bone shape not easy for baby to descend properly, cos cervix was dilated till 8cm then no progress n baby in distress. Then doc said umbilical cord in a knot but not around baby's neck.

I guess he is used to caucasian expats who give birth to very large babies.
 

anewmummy

Member
Abby what brand of fish oil you are taking?

3.69 is considered big in Asia? Well I know some above 4kg but 3.69kg for me petite size is big..
 

abbybaby

New Member
Anewmummy: nope Dr Paul Tseng said in S'pore is not big. But he has lots of expats who give birth to larger babies. But my 1st gynae said baby's size is big n even b4 my edd he kept bringing up induction of labor. N he kept hurrying the labor process when I was in the hospital. most of those who gave birth always smaller than my daughter.

So I dunnoe wat is the average birth weight in S'pore.

My #1 pregnancy I bought my fish oil frm Perth as it's cheaper for abt 400 capsules. Think I shall ask my Aunty who is going over to buy for me. I haven't started eating omega fish oil caps, my nutrisoy drink have omega though.

Now I have blackmores pregnancy &amp; breastfeeding gold in my cupboard. I have Vit c, calcium n folic acid capsules. Oh I have Kordel's Hi Omega 3 capsules too. But I am going to finish my Centrum Pregnancy care first.

Berries,
The chart is very different from the ones that I found online haha. Most of the online ones predicted that I will have a girl but the chart that you and sapphire shared says I'm having a boy so it makes 50-50 ;)

Re: Morning Sickness
Last week was fine, I usually only threw up in the evening for dinner but this week, I felt nauseous throughout! B'fast, lunch and dinner! Dinner is really bad so usually right after eating, I'll puke out within 10 mins. Lunch is bearable if I don't eat too full but I'll get hungry real easy. B'fast is fine as long as its not savoury stuffs like sausage cause I'm in UK now, everyday english bfast till sian :S

Speaking about UK, Quinny Buzz really cheap here so dilemma if I should buy leh. Its $600 SGD after conversion. I have a Zapp and Peg Perego for no.1 though but dont like the Zapp cause its old version, cannot recline so I only use the Zapp as a pram using maxi cosi thereafter I chuck it aside in the storeroom and started using my Peg perego. Love Peg Perego Skate but so ex even in UK. Seems like USA has cheaper deals for strollers. HOW! HOW! Should I buy the buzz? Left with 2 days before I can get it cause flying back on Sat (finally! Missing my no.1 like mad and crying almost everyday in the hotel)

Sapphire,
My gyane saw my no.1's gugu bird when I visited him on my Week 15 of pregnancy but he just tell me go for 20 weeks scan for higher accuracy. At 20 weeks detailed scan, sonographer also indicated that I have a boy and she circled the gugu bird part on the scan haha, but they will stil tell you to wait for 3rd trimester screening for higher accuracy so 3rd trimester and again confirmed that I'm having a boy
My gynae says it is easier to spot baby boy cause of the gugu bird but sometimes baby dont cooperate during the scan, also cannot see so must tell baby be good, cooperate when having the detailed scan.

I was in UK n Europe frm July-Nov this yr. I was so sick of their food. Bread, pasta n potatoes. They dun have a wide variety n not as tasty as Asian food.

But the monk fish with tomatoes rice was tasty in Lisbon.
