Hi! In the US, most ladies have their first scan at 8 weeks, while in Australia and Canada, most ladies have their first scan at Week 11. The norm here is much earlier and much more frequent. I think Week 7/8 is a good time to go for the first time. You should see a heartbeat by then. Just my thoughtsHi ladies! edd is 26 january.. i'll be a second time mom ... anyone opting to go for their first check up later on in this 1st trimester? i remember during my 1st pregnancy going too early (6 weeks) and felt it was a bit of a waste of time and money because they couldn't show me much. i'm considering to book an appt for my 10th-12th week. is this unheard of or okay?

Hello, for the first scan, was it a vaginal ultrasound? I was enquiring abt gynae and the nurse at a private clinic asked me to go for that at 6th weeks. Any recommendation or advice? Or shall I wait till 8th week for abdominal ultrasound?first time mummy going into my 8 weeks now. seeing my gynae on thurs for second checkup since two weeks ago. i've some spotting but was told it's normal?? anyone else having same issue?
Hello! May I ask what ultrasound did you go for the first time? Was it vaginal or abdominal?Hello! I'm a 1st time mom, just went for gynae check today and I'm estimated to be 5wks.
Going for 2nd scan next Tues(21st May) to check the baby's heartbeat.
Anyone visiting a female gynae? I'd like to compare prices because my 1st check up costs $680 (1st consultation, ultrasound, 2 blood test, Duphaston, Folic).. is that a normal rate?
Subsequent check up is $80-100 for consultation, $120+ for ultrasound, nurse said be prepare to spend around $200-300 each time.
hi i'm not the one who posted but i can offer my experience... during my 1st pregnancy, i went for a 6 week ultrasound and they could not detect anything from the abdomen... so i had a vaginal ultrasound. it was quite uncomfortableHello! May I ask what ultrasound did you go for the first time? Was it vaginal or abdominal?
Harmony and pano are the same nipt, just by different companies. Not too sure about kkh charges.May i know any diff btw harmony test & pano test?
I went to thomson women clinic which locate in Sembawang, the test need to cost $900+, if get referral letter and go KKH, will it cheaper?
Folic acid is sufficient in tri 1, to prevent the risk of spina bifida. Can easily get it from Watson’s, guardian any pharmacy. You can start now first before seeing gynae.I haven’t make an appointment with gynae. Have u guys started taking folid acid? Is it 5mg a day? Besides folid acid, can we still take prenatal vitamins?
Hi aprillia85, thank you for sharing us so many information. I just done my first scan in kk and baby is almost 7 weeks, I stay in punggol so considering change to visit Dr James wong in oasis. May I know Dr James will help deliver baby in which hospital? Thank you so much.Hi Tigerjos, I went today. Have to say that Dr James is quite friendly and detailed to chit chat quite abit. First consultation is $129 and ultrasound cost $107-$161. Going by app I should be 5w0d but from the scan Dr Lee said is around 5w3d and he’s able to check just by scanning the pelvic area, not trasvaginal.
Hi Ooobaby, u’re Welcomed on the info. Dr James deliver at Mount Alvernia, Thomson Medical and Mount Elizabeth Novena. Just to update you, i’ve actually changed my gynae to Dr Khoo Ching Kiat at Mount E Novena as his location is nearer to my endocrinologist. Nevertheless I still find Dr James a nice gynae and wish your journey ahead with him will be a nice one to join the WhatsApp group you’ve got to message your number and name to superman111, stickybeany, Blacksquares, crystania or PCLC.Hi aprillia85, thank you for sharing us so many information.

Hey, me too. I’ve spent the past 2 days puking. The sickening nausea doesn’t go away! Makes me feel absolutely terrible. I’ve tried many things, can’t eat biscuits.. so far watermelon helps me a little. I try to sip HTwoO as well to prevent dehydrationHi ladies, I have morning sickness every 3 to 4 hr. Have been eating biscuit to curb the nausea. What about u ladies ????

I just saw this post from Joshua Ang about him almost losing his new born due to the confinement lady.. So just wanna share here fyi.. Now makes me worry about confinement lady... Recommended one also can have problem... =/
Congrats on your rainbow baby!Hi All, im on my 9 weeks journey, EDD 16 Jan 2020. However, as i had open operation before, this will be c-sect option as advisde by Gynae which will be 2 weeks earlier before due date. Which means the EDD will be either New Year eve or New Year week.
This is actually my 2nd pregnancy, first one was a ectopic pregnancy which i had to make inevitable decision to abort it at week 7. After almost 9 months wait, i have good news again. However, due to previous experience i am traumatized and can't stop thinking about it.
Baby is well and will be scheduled for NIPT in 2 weeks time. The only thing i need to overcome is not to think of my past experience anymore.
Hi hi, I suggest you contact your gynae to clarify. He/she is in better position to advise you on the intake amount of folic acid.
Dear, I'm at 8 wks also no morning sickness, just feel like vommitting but didn't. And when I see food, also I want to vomit. But I'm am good with spicy foods lol!Morning ladies, I'm officially 5 weeks today! I wonder if I'll have nothing sickness starting next week..? Hahaha.. the body's hormones work like clockwork!
I'll be delivering at TMC like my first! But I've yet to make an appt for first scan. I think I'm taking it too easy this time, but I'm paranoid at the same time if that even makes sense..
Luv88, hospital tours might help in you making decisions but I've not been to any.
Like what April said, everyone pls take care ok? Take lots of rest too!
