    Yes I have seen mine. I went to a GP but GP doc advise me to either go polyclinic or gynae straight. I didn't want to wait as I had to do some confirmation soon so I went to book appointment with gynae directly. However if you want subsidised rates, better to get a referral from polyclinic.

    I was quite lucky that we didnt have much visiting to do. Just the parents, so as long as I kept munching on something suitable, the MS doesnt get so bad and nobody will know.

    Oh gosh! I havent booked my gynae check because I am still not sure to go private or public...

    Oh kekeke gee depends on your priority. My parents encouraged me to go for private. Can get the immediate attention during emergencies.

    Diff for public n private (according to my own research n understanding):

    Private: your record are kept by the same doc n all info will be able to be accessed any time. Will only require you to draw blood when doing the necessary check. Cost wise, you may wan to look for those with package den more economical. Those without package, prices range from 200-400+ per visit.

    Public will be definitely cost cheaper but waiting time may vary from couple of hr to a day. No consistent doctor, means record will be passed ard(not sure of consistency) and heard that may require to keep drawing blood for checks.? (hearsay keke) appts will not as flexible.

    In conclusion, depends on your priority n comfort level. Book asap coz they will only schedule you to the next available slot. Like for mine I ve called on the 2nd feb and the closest date I got was 20th Feb.
    My Gynae, Dr Joycelyn Wong from ACJ clinic, very confident and able assure us. I was quite a scaredy-cat kekeke gee n can’t take jabs n pain :p

    Hope this post can help u a little with speeding up the thought process

    Hello!! Tested positive on 1 Feb and going for my first gynae visit on 11 Feb, EDD should be early oct!!
    First time mummy.. Would like to join the group chat if there's one.. :)

    After reading your post, I called Dr Claudine Tan's clinic immediately to book a slot. Her sat slots are full, but luckily still managed to get a slot next Fri. Had a hard time deciding because i need to find someone near my house and office so that I can go for my checks during lunch or weekends. Previously when my colleague was preg, my boss told her to schedule her appt during lunch or weekends so that it doesn't affect work. Stressed hor. Then my hubs is more pro towards Sengkang hospital because it is very near my house, so if need to pop, dont have to travel too far. Lols. But their appt only Mon to Fri office hours. Zzz.

    You managed to speak to your gynae already?

    Wow, there's so many oct mummies.

    Am also 1st time mom here, pretty lost if i should look for gynae only after 13weeks. As I heard gynae packages only start 13 weeks onwards?

    Hi! I tested positive on 8/2/19 and it is my first time.. book my first gynae appointment on 23/2/19 :)

    Korilash New Member

    You may book an appt with a gynae for a first appointment, but I’m not sure what they will do, depending on how many weeks pregnant. They can do initial scans and blood test before 13 months. When we are 13 weeks then sign package.

    Oh yea the convenience of the location n timing very impt too~ lol my hubs actually like Sk Hosp too but after frens sharin he had second thots kekeke gee. Coz they mentioned the docs might be the interns :p After comparing the hospitals, we think that traffic n carpark n location wise, Mt A currently will be our top choice :)

    Oh ur dates are are close, which is good. I’ve still got to wait till 20th kekeke gee

    Hi mtb.. I have had a slow past couple of days waiting for my internet cheapies to get darker and finally today I did a digital and got a Pregnant. Did one a couple of days ago and was Not Pregnant. This will be my 2nd pregnancy. My first pregnancy was last month and I lost it at 5w3d. I ovulated late that month and was about 15dpo at 5w2d and beta hcg was 7. I was prepping myself for a loss which happened the following day. This time my tests are slightly progressing more than my previous one but I am still cautious. I want to take it slow this time round and relax. My symptoms however are so different than the first pregnancy.

    1st Pregnancy
    Tender boobs closer to armpit.. throbbing
    AF cramps quite painful at times and it increased in intensity and frequency
    Was feeling faint 2x and both times after eating (before I found out I was pregnant)
    Neckache for a few days
    Fatigue and napping alot
    Migraines
    Hot flashes
    Soapy taste in mouth when eating/drinking
    Dry cervical mucus

    Current Pregnancy
    Mild sore boobs
    Mild barely there AF cramps
    Dizzy at least once a day
    Lower backache
    Creamy discharge
    Bad hunger pains.. I would eat a full meal and start feeling like I haven't eaten my whole life the next hour. I would really eat like no tomorrow not because I want to but if I don't I my stomach would growl and be a bit painful. Yesterday I had a full bowl of noodles and then 3 hours later my stomach growl again and I was literally shaking.. I do have a history of low blood sugar but I have not had an episode for years. But it was so strange that I started having the shakes again and it stopped after I ate a full meal again. I figured that taking sips of milk here and there did help curb the hunger pangs. I had to remind myself that I am eating for two now. All my life I'm the sort to eat once a day and that's fine.. but now I have to eat around 3-6 meals a day to feel fine.

    I am now again at 15dpo but around 4w6d based on LMP. Fingers crossed and hoping this baby sticks.

    I would suggest getting a beta hcg quantitative test and see if it doubles every 2-3 days. Alternatively u can use cheap test and compare the lines for every 2 days and see if it darkens. Use the same test and dip at same duration (like 5 seconds for all). I had a loss last month and my lines were taking a long time to get a bit darker and it actually became lighter a few days later then I started bleeding. Not trying to scare you but the only time you should be concerned is if it gets lighter and you experience bleeding. But right now a line is a line and you are currently pregnant so congrats mommy! I know it's hard but don't stress too much it will not do you any good. Relax and take it easy.

    Hello! I totally understand the hunger pangs. Have been experiencing them everyday, and if i dont put food in, i feel freaking nauseous. And the worse thing is I cant even sip milk, the body just rejects..I am now eating so much more carbs than before (literally carbs for every meal when I could live without carbs before) that I am so afraid of weight gain leading to other issues.

    Any mummies here having problem with drinking water? I get nauseous when I drink and now I feel so dehydrated...

    Hey sounds about right. Our stomach is now very sensitive to food intake and timings. I've tried to take small and frequent meals and that has help so far keep my symptoms at bay too. Just snacks in btw or fruits counts too! Congrats on your pregancy and hopefully it will be alright for this second one.

    Hey, yeah its normal. At leastfor a friend of mine. She said she couldnt drink water for a few weeks. What she did is try to dry other types of water. Sweet drinks is also ok as long as you get hydrated. Maybe juices, and those less in sugar sweet drinks.

    Hi babe! Did you manage to see the baby in the US? I just had my US ytd but we only managed to see the sac. Predicted to be 5 wk+ preg but gynae mentioned that the sac looks smaller than it is. So worried!!! I will need to head back 2 weeks later (26/2) for the second appointment, hopefully we will be able to see the baby and the baby's heartbeat! :((

    When I went for my scan last week (predicted 5w3d), managed to see the sac which has tripled in size within a week. Fortunately the doctor said it is a good sign that the sac has grown and is a good size for 5 weeks (was around 9mm I think) but nope didn’t see anything inside. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for our next scan! It is very worrying but let’s rest and relax and hope for the best
