can I check whether we still need to take folic acid after the 1st trimester? thanks
My gynae told me to just finish up whatever is leftover from 1st trimester. So I guess it's not totally necessary.can I check whether we still need to take folic acid after the 1st trimester? thanks

Hi, to all mommies-to-be and hopefully daddies-to-be here! I'm a daddy-to-be here and hope to share and learn some fruitful tips and advices from all folks here in this chat group.
My lovely wifey is now on her 16th week of pregnancy. EDD on 7 Sept. Are there daddies-to-be here in this group or forum? Hope I am not the unique one. *awkward*.
Hi hojichalatte,hello all, pls add me to the fb page as well
I have added you into the FB group, please wait for the admin to approve.
Hi there, you are definitely not alone for dozing off at work.... I'm in 15th week and have been yawning every now and then in office too. Probably because I wasn't getting good quality sleep at night. Had to wake up midnight to empty my bladder almost every night. But my colleagues understand. Hope the same for u!Hi everyone
Zaclin - thanks so much for adding me in but i guess admin hasnt added yet.
Just came back with my boy from the long easter hols in HK and uber tired as late flight in last night and working today. Is everyone still feeling the fatigue daily in 2nd trimester? Im literallly dozing off at work daily!! Anyone interested for maternity dresses can try go buy online at www.seraphine.com as they ship to SG and their dresses are really very comfy and pretty for work.. You can just buy your pre-pregnancy size or just 1 size up as the dresses are flowy and stretches so its quite good to last to the full 9 mths and after birth.
Hong - Well wishes to you and the little one... stay positive and enjoy the pregnancy journey. update us when you get ur results too Jiayou!!
For those going, u may want to bring along a mini fan / dress light. I was there last week & it was a bit stuffy as there's no ac.Hi Mummies, just share the sales here

hihi all.. i'm also a sep mummy. Edd 18 Sep.
can help to add me to fb group too as well? [email protected]
thanks in advance!
My mum also say the same thing, but my MIL very old fashion, and she make my hubby donno what to do already!Phoebe - house can reno but if workers doing hammering and drilling you just stay away from home. so best to try arrange for the work to be done in ur absence.
Carebear, I do hear pple mail order confinement nanny to oversea but not sure about the price.
Yes for infant care, you probably want to start searching now and register.
SG food - none selling there? Must learn to cook some dishes when you are back so you will get to cook for yourself when you are oversea.
I was told to come down to gynae office ytd because dr wanted to explain my OSCAR test result with me. I have expected not a very promising result else he will not be so anxious to get me into his clinic. True enough. I scored 1: 141 and will have to go through Amniocentesis test which cost another 1.2k. I think I fail the blood test portion, the scan result reading is ok.
Hi Sylvia,morning morning...
Carebear2905 - I admire your courage to give birth for the first time in the UK, this is my 2nd child and i still return to SG for birth rather sacrificing time away from my hubby. i feel more secure here somewhat with my own doctors as well as having the comfort of confinement lady and massage lady post birth. All the best in your pregnancy/birth journey!
For childcare, you can also consider Cambridge for a slightly lower price about 1000 after subsidy for full day. I used to send my son there and the teachers there are wonderful. My boy was in Robertson Quay branch.
Hong - Sorry to hear of the news and i wish you get back positive results from Amnio. Can't help but worry as a mother im sure but do take care of yourself too and rest plenty during the long weekend!
Zaclin - If i could trouble you to please add [email protected] on the FB page. Thank you.
Hi Emily_Emily,hi carebear, my edd was 26sept aft that gynae said 28sept after that was 26sept again lol so i guess +- around there hopefully it is sept and don drag to oct lol. don worry abt gaining weight in 1st tri, many lost weight but picks up during 2nd tri. i lost a little few grams but was in my maternity pants already, cant wear my usual pants since 2 mths of preggy , i am the skinny underweight type. still underweight though. i am oso in my 30 not tat young too
Hi mykyofaye,Hi all, am new to this thread. I am having my 2nd baby and edd will be on 15 Sept.
Hi Carebear2905, I will be giving birth in London too. I just move over to London, so is in the mist of adjusting to a new country, new culture and trying to settle in. In fact I haven't even move into my permanent place in London yet as I am typing.
So maybe we can give each other some morale support, giving birth in foreign land! Btw, have you chosen your hospital?
This pregnancy has been quite challenging as I been flying like crazy in my 1st Tri and my taste bud change quite a fair bit. In fact I feel that my 1st pregnancy was easier, but then it may be due to the fact that my 1st pregnancy was 5 yrs ago and memories become sweeter.
Anyway, am super glad to have my 2nd child, tried many years with some sadness along the way. All I hope that now is the baby is healthy and I will have a smooth delivery.
if really no choice maybe go buy a portable aircon? old ppl are always more sensitive..My mum also say the same thing, but my MIL very old fashion, and she make my hubby donno what to do already!
hi aveave.. yup.. gained weight already. lost some during beginning of 1st trimester but gained back by end of it.. then it's been increasing already. I have started wearing maternity leggings & pants to work cos can feel the tummy area expanding after lunch. They are really much more comfy than normal work pants / jeans..Anyone started to gain weight already?
I thought I got gain as I also see my tummy expanding but then on my Wednesday visit doctor's weighing machine tells me otherwise no gain at all... maybe because I'm overweight to start with so I'm sharing my fats with my baby?hi aveave.. yup.. gained weight already. lost some during beginning of 1st trimester but gained back by end of it.. then it's been increasing already.
