This is a discussion on EDD Jan 2014 within the Year 2014 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by chapter Hi all MTBs, where do you go for checkup? I done the first scan with Ester ...
ladies, I'm more concerned about my weight now. Any of you lost weight? I've lost 2kg ever since my pregnancy due to heartburn n morning sickness. this is the time I dont want to lose weight yet it did. I try to eat n I still pass motion (so it means some food is absorbed right?).
Hi all, thanks for the reply. Yes I have been taking normal gaviscon. My gynae have me the advanced one but I felt super hungry after taking that so I stopped taking. Now I am taking this medicine ramitidine which my gynae said safe to take. But still trying not to depend on this so much.
peenut: I am also gg for my Oscar scan next wk.
chapter: if you go private I guess the consultation is definitely more expensive. Heard from my friend KK is cheaper but not sure about the differences. I am with Mount Elizabeth Orchard, Dr Suresh Nair. My hubby knows him so we go to him but I agree that bld test at parkway is not cheap. My first antenatal screening cost me $300++ on blood test alone.
my gynae say its ok for weight loss during 1st trimester. there is once I got so bad that I didn't eat anything for the whole day except for a cup of milo. he told me is ok. illuz: try taking smaller meals and more times? dont take so heavy meal suddenly.?
Peenut: you are not alone, I am not eating well in fact much lesser than before pregnancy due to Ms and heartburn. Hence, finger cross hard hard that heartburn will go away in 2nd trim, that we may eat well and baby will grow well.
Hey just curious. Any mummy here hiring confinement lady? Or your parents will be helping?
Hello mummies, can I check whether you are taking calcium supplements, and if so what brand are you taking?
Hi Missy10 thank you will try when free
Hi chapter, the blood test and Oscar is priced as 1st trimester test . It is $192.53. But the clinic I going is more expensive one so other places likely to be cheaper.
Plus, I think the confinement ladies will be charging quite a higher rate than normal since our EDD are near CNY. everything will be ex then..
What's your plan?
Fay85: so good of your mum.. for me, only me n hubby staying together. My mum already raise flag n say she will not take care. Not surprising cox she never take caredof me as well. Lol. mother in law is more impossible as she not stay in sg.. so I am thinking to get a confinement lady. Ya its expensive during cny.. n i think I am one that confinement hit cny period.:/ unless I hire 2 weeks only. Lol. Which I dont think pple hire 2 weeks? :/
Chicheng: actually I also thought of not hiring. But I think is mostly to take care of the baby. As we may be too tired to do so after birth. But of cox one alternative im thinking is if got pple help me take care of baby I will just order confinement food frm catering. Hee.
Not many confinement ladies want to do CNY. I called up a few whom are highly recommended by friends but only one can help me But till 25 Jan only. My edd is 9 Jan which means only 2 weeks confinement for me. The other 2 weeks I just intend to cater confinement food.
Rzena: im taking folic acid n dha only. My gynae quite disapprove of milk etc. I still do drink at times.. but I never take extra calcium. Cox my gynae not quite suggest more calcium .
Illuz: so for 2 weeks confinement hw they charge you? Ya im also quite worried that no confonement lady want do during cny. If really cant hire no choice my hubby needs to be more xin ku. Ha. Maybe will find relatives for help than. Lol
Illuz: oh icm mind to let me know price n hw it works? Thanks!
So far only folic acid n 安胎药, anmum, gynae only want me to take supplement after 12 weeks....
My gynae gave me everything from multi vitamins, DHA, calcium pills and folic acid ( I took this prior pregnancy so I just continue. Think can stop in 2nd trimester). however becos of my bad MS n heartburn, most of these supplements do not stay in so I prescribed my own supplements. I take whenever I like or rather, whenever I think my body can swallow it. Haha!
I'm taking muti fit, FHA and calcium pill. My gynae did not ask me to take any supplement milk... I just drink the normal milk for breakfast
My HTB tried to reseach on this. He's quite kiasu with regards to the milk/food I'm taking. He doesn't want me to take too much of the milk supplement because he said it contains too much sugar. So one one the things he found is that it's best to take the high calcium fresh milk as long as it's pasteurized, then followed by healthy supply of fruits and veggies. So what I do, I drink alternately. Morning freshmilk, night time the mommy milk choco supplement. Then i have fruits during meal times except bfast.
