Hi Moonlightmist,

Yes but #1 also busy with sch now but when she is at home at least she can be my right left hand to help around to take care of #2 or housework. My #1 is from my previous marriage and for my current marriage, I waited for 3+ years than I am pregnant with #2. We do wants to have #3 at a later time but I am pregnant now so it come as a surprise in some way :) Anyway I am not young so I am fine.

Hi Mummies,

I tested positive, expecting #2 =). I'm staying in bukit batok, would like to ask if any mummies can recommend good female gynae. My previous gynae was Dr Theresa Cheng at AMK, find her clinic a bit too far for me now, wish to visit a female gynea whose clinic located at the west area.

Anybody go polyclinic do antenatal check-up?
Hi orangebeauty, I wanted to go to AMK polyclinic for my antenatal check-up but was informed by the nurses that I am still required to go to KKH/SGH/NUH for some of the checks as they do not have much equipment at AMK polyclinic.
I guess this should be the case for most polyclinics.
Currently, I am with KKH (subsidised). So far so good.

Hi Everyone,
I would like to join the facebook group. My email address is [email protected].
This is my 1st baby. EDD is 1 Mar 2014. Currently, I am with KKH (subsidised).
Still experiencing nausea at different moments of the day and sometimes I cannot really differentiate whether is it nausea or gastric (even though I am always munching on something every few hours). Hopefully things will improve...

Hi...

Does anybody know if we can register on-the-spot for the FBI/SBI (First/Subsequent Born Incentive) at TMC when we go for the first trimester scan?
Or do we need to sign up earlier to get the discount for the scan?

For my #1, I signed up for FBI during a baby fair...
Going for the scan at TMC in 2 weeks. Not sure if I should sign up for the SBI online.... Think it costs $124...

Thanks. :)

Mochaa, I visited a very close fren after she delivered when I was around 3 months preg with #1...
The only "pantang" my mum instructed me to follow was not to carry her newborn...

Ur... think it's personal preference... I know of ladies who totally avoid visiting hospitals, attending weddings or any celebrations, etc...
For my case, she was an old buddy. Plus I checked with her first and made sure she dun "pantang" either... :)

I didn't even know there were subsidies and incentives like these and that they were available at TMC. The last time I asked TMC, they said no subsidy etc. :eek:

soursop, call the clinic to ask? U taking an tai? Take care..

Chris, I do get it on and off just try to rest when possible... Best not to take any meds but if really cannot take it, see GP to get med. from what I know can take Panadol but better to check w doc.

Hello!! Sorry I haven't been in for a long time cos dunno how to log into this new forum :p

May I join in the FB group please?? My email address is [email protected].

Thanks in advance FishB0n3!!
 
impixie, how do u entitled to have the subsidies rate in KKH? I'm private rate, not sure if it's because I do not go to polyclinic in the first place? If I want to enjoy subsidies rate now, can I go to Poly clinic again? Private rate for check-up is around $100 + for senior gynae, quite exp.
Are u see different gynae every time?

Yes, AMK KKH clinic did request me to go KKH do some test (down sydrome & in week 19 for detail checking). There's some details check that AMK clinic not available. But I'm happy go to KKH sometimes, waiting time there not that long and I can shop shop there in the small mall :)

Wk11 this week, my ms only come around wk10. This week really bad, vomit while wake up and back home from work. Sometimes before dinner.

All 1st time mum-to-be, do u feel yr tummy grow bigger a bit? I felt that I cannot find my waist anymore. huh huh~~ tummy like a bit bloated. Got one long pant can't fit anymore.

Hi orangebeauty, I got a referral letter from AMK Polyclinic and they set-up an appt with KKH on my behalf. Perhaps you would like to check with KKH staff if you are able to go under subsidised care (consultation fee of $32 for 1st visit & $30 for subsequent visits)?

As what magwonder mentioned, I am seeing different doctors for each visit (so far 2 different female Indian docs for my 2 visits). Waiting time varies too. From my observation, they seems to go strictly by your given appointment time. I was super early once and waited for like forever...

Currently I am at week 13. Have gone for the Down Syndrome scan last week (longer duration compared to normal scan as there are more measurements to be done).
Down Syndrome blood test was done the previous week & the nurse took quite a bit of blood. Didnt dare to look =<

My tummy seemed to have expanded in size these 2 weeks too.
But appetite wise, still not very good. Eating is now a chore when it used to be such a big part of my life.

I also went for the Down Syndrome when i am in my week 11. I also quite surprised that my gynae withdrew three tubes of blood.

I am currently in Week 12. My tummy expanded like a rubber and most of my pants/shorts cannot fit me anymore. Most of my clothes also look very tight.
Appetite wise is improving. The previous weeks seems like hell - everyday suffering from dehydration, coughing and nausea.

The only main problem I face is at night. Every night seems like a living hell. Plugged with the constant urge of nausea and headaches.
Yesterday night my tummy pained like hell. Tot I am gg to "die" soon.. Wonder what the reason for the tummy ache.
 
Thanks impixie for your info.

Happy to know that there's mum-to-be tummy also expanding, I thought I'm too fat so my tummy expanding so fast. I'm wearing pregnant long pant to work already, but blouse still same. I can see my tummy but not sure if some of my colleagues who don't know can see or not.

I'm going for my ultrascan for ds next week, nurse said dr will tell us result that day as well.
My appetide not good, but still can eat something. Vomit almost everyday when reach home from work (maybe too tired after one day). But lucky is still able to tk my dinner after that.

miracleseason, y yr tummy pain? Constipation? I felt pain this morning and feel bad, then go pu more realise. If abnormal pain, better go see doctor immediately.

I told the doc about my recent vomiting/nausea and was given 2 weeks supply of Metoclopramide HCI tablet (10 mg) (to be taken when necessary).
To be taken 0.5 hr to 1 hr before food. May cause drowsiness.

Have tried taking it one night before my light supper and it works! As least I didn't feel like vomiting when brushing my teeth in the morning.
Perhaps can highlight your symptoms to the gynae and see if any medication might help.

I am currently in my 14 weeks but the vomiting/nausea/bloated feeling don't seem to be improving. Climbing an overhead bridge is enough to make me breathless :( Hopefully things will improve...

candyrush, u r so brave! 5 tube of blood, i scared blood test. That day I went for KKH OSCAR test, luckily the nurse very skillful and I didn't feel pain. I plan to have my 2nd one few years after this, maybe over 35 yrs old already. Scared to do so much test.

Any mummy feel itchiness on tummy? My tummy start itchy last week, so irritating. After apply Johnson baby oil, feel a bit better. Not sure if it's because tummy start stretching cause itchiness? Tried use Palmers' stretch mark lotion, but seem not really effective. Anyone start apply stretch mark lotion or oil already? Need some recommendation.
