Yvejen: congrats! It's normal to have anxiety but being here, lets support and encourage each other as we go through the different challenges. Cheer up ya and let's wait to see our bb tmr


Bbfaith: have replies your pm
 


Hi yvejen, a big welcome to the club!

Yupz, having spotting can be quite daunting. As all the sistas here say, its nothing to worry about. Try and put your feet up as much as possible. Good luck for your scan tmrw! Everything will be fine. Don't worry too much. Hugs.
Btw, how come you are still on inserts?

Hi ganie, honestly i have also never heard of Dr Yu. Hee. And i don't see alot of sistas in the IVF forum under her. Good that she will be with you all the way thru. Dr sadhana doesnt do delivery so hv to switch gynae @ KKH or go back to my old one at TMC. Hope the spotting is easing up. When is your next scan?

Hi mei2, hope the spotting has stopped after taking the jab. Your two little ones are strong fighters! You'll get to see them soon. Just one more week to go


Hi chris, yupz, its impt to keep the body hydrated. Hopefully you wouldnt get very bad ms. I had a really bad day today. Puke 3 times. Sighz. All the best for your scan tmrw. Hope everything will be great. Keep us posted


Hi faith, hope u are feeling better

LCD, I think discharge is common cos its a reaction to the rising hormones in our body. Read somewhere its meant to keep the vagina clean and healthy to protect bb.
Mei, glad the jab helped! Do take care!
For sisters struggling with MS, I also had problems keeping the pills down sometimes. Things that worked for me-- eating a salty biscuit once I wake up eg Chicken in a Biscuit or Goldfish biscuit, drinking Yuzu juice from peel fresh, allowing myself to puke out the meal then take tablets with a sip of water, or last resort, ask your gyne for non pill supplements. For progesterone, there's the jab and also crinone, a vaginal insert. Utrogestan, which is similar to duphaston, can alo be inserted into vagina,
Ivejen, are u on crinone too? If so don't worry abt the brownish stains on the crinone that comes out, I had that too, but many forums say its just because the crinone gel irritates the vagina lining. Take care!

Lcd: i also wonder why, haha. But clinic still quite crowded, mb cos her patients dun visit this forum? And Sgh seems to be the least popular among the 3 govt hospitals. Anyway, she does delivery too, so good la, can follow her. Im seeing her again on wed.

Spotting has stopped but nausea still ard. I havent puked yet though. Haha.. how ah, i can't drink water. Cold drinks appeal so much to me, but trying not to drink too much cold.. argh...

Chris: acty ur dr scan u early hor... at sgh have to wait til 6 weeks. Anyway, 5 weeks fetal pole is good! Heart should start beating in a few days.
 
Joynpeace - Thanks!
Some days will have more discharge, some days none at all. I love Goldfish too!! And salty pretzels. Lol... I used Utrogestan during the 2WW but switch over to duphaston after BFP.
Mabbe i'll ask the doctor tmrw if i can switch back to Utrogestan cos just looking at that white pill makes me gag.

Hi Ganie, Sweet! Can see your BB again on wednesday
Glad that the spotting has spotted. I think the nauseous feeling is gonna follow us all the way till end of 1st trimester.
I'm just drinking lotsa Ribena + water everyday. I know!! I've been craving for a big glass coke filled with lotsa ice....and i never like coke before preggie. Weird horr.

Hi Chris, Congrats!! So exciting
Did you see one or two? Heehee. I can't wait for my scan tmrw. Please lemme see a heartbeat!!! *pray*

Btw, anyone gained much weight yet? My hubby keeps saying that preggie woman should gained 2-3 kg during 1st trimester. But really not much appetite leh. How to gain right?

LCD I'm first time mum so not sure if my info correct.. I think first trimester it's ok not to gain any weight.. Some may lose a little if MS is bad. Apparently 2nd and 3rd trimester can gain a kg a week, so need to have some buffer, cos we should aim for 10-15kg for whole pregnancy.. Mei2, was it like that for your #1?

Ganie16: I think I wulong leh.. Read the report wrong.. Should be just sac for now.. Haha :p

LCD: Today confirm the sac in the uterus, saw 1.. Haha .. Thought would see 2 cos BT was quite high but nevertheless still v happy

Hi ladies, thks for the encouragement. Went for my scan n saw the york sac n heard the heart beat. Praying that this strong one continue to beat strongly!

Congrats yvejen! Must be so thrilling to hear the HB


Mei2: where got enough one leh.. Prof should let us see on week 6 mah.. Now have to wait until week 7.. Wahaha! Hard to satisfy the mummy.. Kekeke
 
Hi joynpeace, I think we have been reading the same pregnancy book. Lol
I told him that it's okay not to gain any weight during 1st trimester. But so far, i gained 1kg. Heehee

Hi Chris, How high was your BT? Can just imagine your happiness. To me, having one is already a miracle, and two will be a bonus


Hi Mei2, you are the most experienced in this forum worr. 请多指教
Wow! 20kg... Was it easy to lose the weight? I used to eat chocolates everyday, but don't even have craving for it anymore.
Being preggie sure changes your taste buds. It's okay to drink cold drinks? I'm so afraid it will make my womb "liang". Heehee

Hi yvejen, Congrats!! You must be about 6-7 weeks preggie? Must be exciting to see the heartbeat. Yeapz. BB's heartbeat will continue to beat strongly. Don't worry
Have the spotting start?
Btw, which hosp are you with?

Ladies, I just spotted again n this time can tell that is brown. More obvious than the last 2 times. I'm so worried n upset again. Called the nurse n she mentioned it cld b due to the US scanner intrusion into the cervix. But I'm not sure...is such a long journey for me to reach here n now it seems like it might crash on me...m so upset!

Lilcookiedough, I'm with tfc.

Hey chris, thk u so much for ur encouragement. Not only did I just cried out hard to dh, I oso just vomitted everything out. While puking, I told myself, I can't cry. I must b strong n willing to withstand all this difficult MS. I just hv to learn to tell myself like b4 the blood test, whatever will b, will b...

Miracle#2: initially I thought I will be in feb too.. Haha but now I Mar but will wait for the next scan to confirm first .. Hehe.

Yvejen: morning! you do sound abit emotional.. It could be the hormonal changes you are going through but you must be happy cos you really bfp.. Hope onto this so that whenever u face any anxiety, believe your baby is growing well sister. MS is usually a good thing, not bad ya and nothing bad is happening so cheer up ok
I don't have any MS except feeling dizzy at this stage but I feel v happy and thankful instead of worried cos I am praying for an easy and safe pregnancy as I am gg back to work so don't want to be puking. Sometimes I thought its harder not to have signs that tells me all is well u know hehe but I tell myself I will hold this pregnancy with open hands to God like I did from the beginning so that I will be at peace and not anxious.. It helps me so much. So have faith sister that all is well

Wow the thread runs so fast!

faith, so sorry to hear about your loss. Rest well and try again. Ive been taking coq10 to boost egg quality.

Chris, ha high hcg levels dun guarantee twins. Mine was 1026 but also Singleton.

Mei2, heard the wait at tps is shorter than clinic d. Hee. Counting down to see dr tan.

Nidellia: so u are the one!! Haha.. I was trying hard to think who is the person with over 1k hcg value and how is it for her now.. Then u appear.. Haha.. Thoughts are powerful hor
would be interesting to know what gender the bb will be later stage too to see if there is any relationship. Do u have any pregnancy symptoms? I read that usually those w bad MS somehow have tendency towards having a princess
 

yvejen

Member
Chris, yes, I'm indeed emotional. I'm trying very hard to contain myself but just simply can't. U r right that I shd b happy since I hv MS to show that I've gt symptom but on the other hand, spotting is a contradiction to the symptom.
B4 the program starts, I was trying to tell myself to leave everything to God's grace n now I'm struggling to tell myself that as well coz God has everything planned...I'll continue to pray n ask for blessing. Thk u so much for the encouragement.Sorry if I sounded a lil too negative.

Just wanna find out fr all sisters here, do u ladies spot as well?

Yvejen: haha.. We are here for care and support each other mah..
have to have a grip on your emotions ok cos you want to have a happy baby ok
Try your best not to take back this bb thing that you have placed at the altar (if I may put it) and let God carry it for you through it all. It will be a challenge because it might seemed you are losing control but its really better that He is on control, trust in His goodness ok. Worry isn't going to help anything but probably make you quite miserable. Have a heart of praise and thanksgiving
listen to some worship songs to redirect your focus on Him. You are not alone in this journey sister, He is w you.

yvejen

Member
Lynhope, I'm oso with tfc n according to wat I know I thought we r suppose to go back to tfc for all scans n tests till they discharge us after the oscar which is the end of 1st trem. I'm not too sure though.
Yah, where did they direct u?
 

yvejen

Member
Mei2, what did ur gynae say with the discharge? R u in ur 6th week?
I just went for my 1st scan yesterday n told dr abt it n it seems like there's nothing much except the heart beat. N I just went for a support jab this morning. Just hv to monitor for now.
 

yvejen

I called tfc to check le... the Oscar scan is done in Novena Medical Centre at Novena sq 2.

Btw, for those who chosen Thomson to give birth, join the First Born Incentive (FBI). Can get discount for Oscar scan also too...
My friend calculated told me worth it de... so I trust her and just join.

Chris: yeah, i cheated! Hehe... but cos not very crowded today mah.. so scan today tmr can straight away see doctor. Hehehe..
