i'm kiasu, my EDD is 2 Jan & i already booked my CL.. cos she did my confinement for my #2 and i like her very much..
i think u can start looking cos CNY falls in Jan. It might be hard to get CL if your confinement has to take place during CNY period. Even my CL said if i deliver exactly on my due date, she will only be able to help out until 2 days before CNY. I'm hoping i deliver early like mid Dec!
The first CL tat I wan wasn't available in Dec since she worried I may deliver early she is not able to take mi.. Kinda sad over it.. as i need to start over to find another one..
Care to share yr CL price..

Hi Amysl,

Just curious why cannot eat spicy food? I have been eating spicy food when i was pregnant with #1.
pregnant women may suffer from heartburn, and spicy foods can aggravate it. Also, it may cost digestive and stomach issues, hence the reason to avoid.

Prior to my trip, i did a research on the safety of the baby when passing through the sanner. And this is what i found
Based on a post updated on March 2016.
http://www.babycenter.com/404_is-it-safe-to-walk-through-airport-screening-machines-while_2616.bc

I also double confirmed my research with the security guard when passing through the scanner. they are affirm it is safe on both the trips to and fro

My friend engaged my CL last month, it was $2600. So i dunno if there will be an increase whether i deliver in Dec or Jan or not. But because she and my mum are friends and we recommended her to a few friends and relatives, she said she will give us some discount.. hahaha

Can I ask how do all of u cope with morning sickness / nausea? I've been taking v small sips of ribena thru out the day to keep my discomfort at bay. Not sure if too much of this will cause gestational diabetes or not..haha

i think it should be okay, i guess, cos it's not like you consume a lot. I dont know about others, but i would take bites of sour plum and have a sniff of lemongrass to reduce my discomfort :)

im also having very bad MS! I can't even drink water, because it makes me puke more. End up my lips are very dry and peeling.
and because i tend to puke even more when i see and smell my own vomit in the toilet bowl, i try to take light foods like porridge, clear soupy stuff etc.
i tried everything from lemons to ginger tea to sour plum nothing helps. i'm feeling really terrible, worse is when i'm working i have to hide in the toilet for 20 mins every 1 to 2 hours cos i will feel so nauseous. So far no one at work knows about my preg yet.

im currently at week 9, and i read that the peak morning sickness is from week 9 to 10 when the hormones surge. No wonder this week seemed to be the worse as i cant keep anything down.. and then got another week to go! i've already lost 2kg so far.

my 1st preg was a breeze, dont feel preg at all as no bad symptoms, 2nd preg MS but usually only after meals and i will instantly feel better. this one is being nauseous 24/7, no energy to do anything or go out. i think maybe got to do with age also hahaha.

Another one symptom I have is Super itchy! Arms, thighs and sometimes on the stomach area. Then Hives will appear. Doc says it's ok to take antihistamine. I take Adezio (cetirizine)

Hello everyone,

I am a first time mummy. Edd 4th of jan 2017.
Should I be concern if I don't feel nauseous at all. I'm googling at articles saying the baby is less stable if the mother don't feel nauseous. Am I scaring myself here?

The only few symptom i have got are fatigue, sore and growing breast and pregnancy brain like I have become stupid.

We are also doing First Trimester Screening. Is that okay or mostly false positive? Many thanks for my silly questions. So so scared!

Don't worry! if there r no cramps/bleeding, there should be no prob with the pregnancy! Your EDD is near to mine, should be almost 10 weeks already. have u been to your 1st checkup?
You are lucky that u dont have nauseousness!!! how i envy you..

anyone opting for Harmony test?

I am a first time mum and I have the similar symptom too. No morning sickness and no nauseous. Just fatigue and frequent urination.

As long as there is no heavy bleeding, it is fine! I just went for my ultrasound and baby is well and active inside. We also managed to hear the heartbeat. Guess we are the lucky ones :)

I'm not sure.. but for the DS screening etc my doc suggested 3 types of tests - OSCAR, Amnio and the Harmony test. The Harmony test is the one done at 10 to 12 weeks (i think) which they draw your blood and airfreight it to US for testing. Also can get to know the gender (prob the only thing i'm excited about). Because it's my 3rd child and i'm in my 30s so we just go for the Harmony for more accuracy.

Hi! just been to gynae 3 days ago. I'm 8weeks now... my gynae only told us about the oscar and the other one where they'll draw my blood and send to the US for test. Hmm we're a little confused... which one is better? Thanks!

hi ! :) i think the harmony test has more accuracy (99%) while Oscar is 90% if i rem correctly. But Harmony test cost more at least $1000 and above. but if you are young and risk is not high u can just do the Oscar. Or do Oscar 1st if the results r not good then consider Harmony test.

Oscar and Harmony (aka panorama) test are all risk free and as you have mention 90% and 99% accuracy. But do note that there are cases of false positive.

Amnio have some risk of miscarriage involved. So if can try to avoid this unless you really want to know the condition of the baby

Hi funnybelly take a look at this my gynae gave a small booklet regarding the scans. My gynae also suggested FTS for me I'm 23 y/o. Which is during my 12 weeks..

Hopefully everything is going well..

Thanks for the attachment. Really helpful. Im 28 yrs old . Guess thats why gynae recommend FTS. Harmony sounds ok but very expensive :( took my 1st half of FTS and also my hub's blood test today. Taking the diagnostic screening in 2 weeks time. Hope everything is okay.

Good luck to you and the rest of the mummies-to-be!

Hey..I just went for my 1st scan and I'm only 7w and gynae said strong heartbeat though I didn't see the flickering on the monitor...

Anyway he gave me aspirin, utrogestan (progesterone inserts). It's strange but this morning after I took my aspirin, I don't feel sick at all..... is there something wrong? Anyone took aspirin b4? I'm sooooo scare..with 5 miscarriages, I don't usually pass 7wks...I'm so worried
