Hi fabmums...my colleagues are doing the same. Everytime they see me they will look at my tummy then look away, i guess because im not married yet so they make a big fuss out of it. But i just laugh at it and let them talk about it, it's funny how people sometimes gossip about this...hehehe. For me i didnt break the news, if they come to me now and congratulate me i happily accept otherwise i just let mu baby bump show in my dresses...
@ Lush: The moment pregnancy test kit shows positive. Me and hubby very excited and could not contain our happiness to share the good news to everybody. We have waited until i am 5 weeks and 2 days then posted our first baby ultra sound (that time we can only see the gestational sac though) in our facebook account. Called our parents overseas to inform them the good news.
Some i knew still wait for 3 months to tell the good news but we are already so happy and we already CLAIM to God that this baby is ours and nothing bad will happend along the pregnancy so we are confident to tell our friends, relatives and co workers.
chiching, I know hw you feel.. for me, if I know a colleague is p/g I'll feel happy for her n congratulate her later when it shows.. donnoe y some ppl hav to gossip about who n who is p/g -.-
hi Lush, ya my first choice is to get a CL, really wanna rest during the 1st month n not worry bout baby n laundry, etc.. I heard a good recovery during the 1st month is extremely impt.. hope I can get a CL for the period! dont mind letting the CL going back for cny for 3-5days..
sharing this link for all MTB~
Thanks jellybean for providing the checklist. It's definitely helpful for first time moms.
hi MTB, I have a silly qn to ask. Those of you with bumps already, is the bump soft or hard? Cos I'm still trying to debate within me if mine is a bump or fats haha!! I know when the bump is really big like 5-7 mths, it's hard. But since now it's only the start, i cannot differentiate.
Mine is hard.. And very obvious! Maybe I got too much gas?

hi mummies, expecting my first one now. edd 2 jan 2014. doc says might deliver in dec though. I have been thru the Oscar test. sigh was put in the high risk of 1:114. so was asked to go for amniocentesis. i'm not afraid of pain. just afraid of the risk of miscarriage. my amnio will be on 22 jul. anyone has been thru this? now at 14 weeks plus. next appointment is on 16 jul. it really seems so long. the Oscar scan was fun. it took 45 mins and can see baby jumping, waving and kicking legs. really amazing for hubby and me. just so engrossed in looking at the screen. actually the scan was fine including the fluid at neck and the nasal bone but it is my age which is unfavourable and one of the blood components lacking. thus, it pulled my risk to higher. normal should be 1: 300.
Hi mommies who did oscar... may I ask how much was your Oscar n which clinic?
My bump gt got real huge early last wk n was hard.. Guess its gas.. Now it's soft n less big, but did not subside totally, so I'm beginning to show alrdy Nidella, your oscar scan was 45min lomg??? So good! Those who hav done Oscar, Urs also took so long? Mine was a short 5 min n the dr took the screen shot so quickly for measurement that I did not really see my darling move! Feel so cheated >_
Just got my oscar result and it's Low Risk... phew.
Fabmums mine also very fast... did not get to see my baby move too.
I'm having a slight bump since very early on...it has been stagnant so far. Haha..
It's not exactly soft, but it's slightly turgid and I will feel swollen at the lower abdomen. dont't worry, beyond this point it will just balloon and balloon...
How long did it take before you got your oscar test result? I did mine last tuesday but i have not't received any calls yet from the clinic. I think they will wait until my next check up is due, which is on the 31st of July.
Hi Nidellia, not to worry , will keep you in my thoughts. I rmb gynae once told that if nasal bone and fluid behind neck is in favorable range then risk of dear son is pretty low. I guess is more of your age that's why gynae want to play safe. heard after amnio you to to drink lots of fluid to replace back the amnio fluid. will keep you in my thoughts. do update me on your results by the way my edd is only 2 days after yours
