@Sapphire05 (sapphire05): i had a u/s done at the emergency at kk last thursday when i wen in for Early HG. Since i haven seen my gynae, they did a u/s to check on the baby and i also heard the heartbeat. When the doctor printed out the photos, the EDD was on it and the doctor also mentioned the due date.
Does anyone have problems taking any dairy products in ur early pregnancy? i cannot seem to digest milk, cheese, yogurt, Vanilla flavours or even yakult! The smell itself makes me puke and when i force myself to drink the milkor yakult ( any brand or flavors) i end up vomiting. My husband thinks im coming up with excuses not to drink milk since i never liked milk... So frustrating.
i din take a single drop of milk for my no 1 and this preg. i dun like milk and i cannot stomach down any milk.
every woman is diff and every preg is different. you are not giving excuse.
so long as you are taking the iron and calcium pills prescribe by gynae, its good enuf.
dun worry abt that.
this preg, i am allegy to chicken and egg. i cannot take, otherwise i itch and i scratch like nobody biz.
Linda (qq77): thanks for all that advice.. I was really being worried that baby might haf calcium deficiency. So i guess i must inform my gynae about not being able to drink milk so that he'll give me calcium pills?
Yesterday was a horrible xmas for me. Was viomitting non-stop and having slight fever. This #2 pregnancy is really taking a toll on me, and i simply have no energy to take good care of my #1. I just feel so exhausted and lethergic all the time. I hope its only a first tri thingy and things will get better soon. Haiz. I am just wondering if my body is weaker after my #1 pregnancy or is there any supplement i can take to boost up my immunity. Watever i ate now just come out ... haizz...
Usha, i think if u are worried, can take calcium supplements?
Anyone started sourcing for CL liao? I am thinking gg back to PEM, as per my first one...
Anyone knows abt UK citizenship? My hb relatives are asking me to give birth in UK so child can have citizenship rights to choose but from what I read, UK citizenship is not that simple and not auto by birth... any mummy have any idea?
Hi Usha... my gynae gave me calcium pills to consume.
If you cant take the smell of milke/cheese etc, dont force yourself - I read from an article. It's perfectly fine not to eat those that you dont feel like and dont force yourself by thinking that you are robbing your Little One of its nutrients.
Hi.. I hv not decide to use Dr kang wee (mt A)as my gynecology as my 1st visit with her was not that good...
Any comment on her?
Week 12 I'm going for the bloodtest n scan due to my age 35.
Pls advise how much your gynecology charging?
Though already a 2nd time mum but still excited to see my baby. Hehe! Hub and ny son went with me, son was so funny thought he is the one going to see dr and kept screaming. Hub had to hide him behind the curtains and he finally realised its mummy doing checkup. Haha..
Can someone add me to the list too? It's my #2, Gynae: Dr Khoo Chong Kiat at KKH. EDD: 23/07/2013.
Usha: Dont worry about the milk. I did not take any milk and hate it too. Thankfully, my #1 is growing healthily. But I guess the one that suffer will be us eventually. We share the same gynae & my #1 is delivered by him too and she is now 6 months. He is a very friendly guy. I believe he will ask you to continue eat folic acid till 12 weeks then start on the 3 important stuff: 1. prenatal fish oil, calcium & multi vitamin.
My gynae Woo Bit Hwa delivered my #1 at Mt A but now he only delivers at TMC. I am quite disappointed cos I really enjoyed staying at Mt A but now due to the reno and lack of parking space, he mentioned he even missed a few deliveries cos of the delay in parking his car, so he's not going to take any risk.
Please add me to the list
#2, EDD 8 Jul . Dr. Selina Chua, Mt E
Went for 2nd check up today and done the OSCAR test. The scan result is ok, need to wait 3 days for the blood test result. my ms better as compare to 2 weeks ago.
For milk intake, I was told by my gynae before that milk or calcium can actually worsen the ms. 1st trimester, my gynae give me folic acid only. 2nd trimester, after i finish my folic acid, I will be on multivit(with folic acid) and calcium(i need the pills cause i am not a regular milk drinker). Both pills can't be taken together, 1 in the morning and 1 at night. My gynae told me around week 25, will need fish oil if i can't do 2 servings of fish(salmon, cod, tuna and etc) per week.
@Zo (higgledy82); Glad to have met you. I never knew anything about Dr Khoo. Just read up about him on a few forums and took an appt with him. Glad to know Ive made the right decision. Thanks for all that advices. At least i know what to expect when i go on Saturday. May i just ask how much usually your first appointment comes up to?
Mummies.. my weight seemed to have decrease these 2 days and is almost back to my normal weight (before that have increased 1 kg these few weeks).. a bit worried.. I haven't puked lately but did not have much appetite.. checkup is only next Fri.. hope will be ok..
for this pregnancy, not only is MS worse, sleeping pattern is terrible too. always tired, then when eventually falls asleep, will sleep in blocks of 4/5 hrs. then wake up and have difficulty falling asleep again. sigh, literally feel like a walking zombie at work everyday.
Hi Clare! Oh u are not on the list yet? I was thinking no one has the same gynae as me.. I have this pills called nataboost.. I tot that was the fish oil.. I need to double check when I get home.. Yes I have started..
Actually I just popped 4 pills (multi vit, calcium, fish oil, folic acid) into my mouth every morn before going to work.. haha.. just want to get over and done with.. now gotta space them out already..
