    Any private gynaes that are good for twins? Must we specially go to restructured hospitals if we carry twins? Or can we still choose private gynaes?

  13. Joo35

    Is it base on gyne advise? How old r u?
     
  15. Joo35

    Joo35 Member

    Yup. Cos the non invasive tests are not suitable for multiples.

    Not Pte but nuh prof biswas. Myself is with my ivf Doctor Anupriya nuh. I had high risks as I had gd very early into the pregnancy and also high bp. I delivered at 36w5d due to preeclampsia. I also had low placenta and during my ecsec & lost a lot of blood. Anu had already warn me abt my risks. She has been a great Gynae.

    Thats why nipt are not suitable. When result is positive, you still cannot determine which twin. So, doc dun advise spending money on those tests. The most accurate would be the amniocentesis which includes risks of miscarriages.

    Hello fellow mummies. Anyone found out the cost of delivering for twins?

    KKH - I did elective CS for twins in 2015. Ard 8k I think. Cheap until I laugh until pengz. Cos I tot twins must be expensive.... My twinnie's stayed normal nursery, no need special care as I delivered at 37 weeks.

    My no 1 cost me $10k at TMC back in 2012- natural then become emergency CS.

    I feel KKH is quite good. Both hospitals I stayed at class A one bedded. I find KKH nurses at class A really took good care of me compared to TMC - more caring than TMC. Plus hubby can easily find food at KKH. Main reason was that I can choose subsidized class if I have to deliver suddenly and prematurely.. Heng - the twins stuck wif me until week 37. They were born at 2.4 n 2.5kg.

    If babies need special care like NICU, KKH is still the best place.

    Actually NUH also very well equipped with neo natal facilities. My twins were born ed there and were in nicu. I paid mostly thru medisave and it's heavily subsidised. I paid v v little after the compulsory insurance too

    35weeks+6 days. Main thing with twin pregnancy is not to walk too long and drink more water my gynae said before

    Some confinement lady or agency require you to have a foreign domestic helper as well. Do take note.

    Your TMC bill was so high because it ended up as emergency C section. Emergency c section costs double. You were charged for using the equipment and epidural of normal delivery, and also the C section. Those who want natural delivery but later bobian emergency C section are actually paying for two surgeries. I know tons of moms who did elective C section in 2012 in Thomson and paid just $5k-$6k before medisave. After medisave they only paid $1k plus.
    I want to avoid such a scenario you experienced so I will just opt for elective C section.

    Hi there,

    Finally found a thread for twin pregnancy. Nice meeting you all ladies :)

    Am into my 8wks now, but still have not decide to stick to KKH or tmc. Scare the bill for the later will be ex lol..
     
  35. Joo35

    Joo35 Member

    Hi. This thread rather quiet one. Congrats! Its really up to your comfort level. If you have no complications so far, can just stick with tmc. Kkh would be more well equipped though.

    Twins have a higher risk of being premature and need to be in NICU. that's the reason people might book govt hospital as hopefully they hope to downgrade the ICU costs

  42. Hi, I just got my first beta yesterday and it was 1114 at 11dp5dt. I know I've not had any ultrasound so nothing is confirmed, but my gynae was thinking it's either a very strong singleton or twins. I am just wondering what were your beta for twins like? Also the clinic nurse has been asking if I've any symptoms, but I've none.. not sure if that's normal.. any insights? :) TIA

    vyvy19 New Member

    Congrats!!! Wow.. my beta was only 553!!
     
  44. Thank you! Hmm the clinic staff said she was surprised by the number too, which worries me a little. But did you have the regular symptoms?
     
  45. vyvy19

    vyvy19 New Member

    I had no symptoms at all. The symptoms only kicked in after a few weeks.

  46. Ah~ ok… at least I won't get worried over the symptoms yet. I'm thinking maybe my hcg is high because it's 11dp5dt. Usually beta is 9dp5dt right?
