Me too me too!! Somebody ask me am I 5 mths pregnant when I'm only 14 wks+Originally Posted by christylee:844434
my gynae said it's sometimes due to the uterus expanding... but should not be prolonged; she said rest and dont't carry heavy things... I also have the crampy feeling on and off... short ones maybe two or three times a week over the last 2 weeks... but not painful...
Yah I think i go from my normal size to 4-5 months looking after a meal... lol
Enjoy the process.. Will miss the bump after the baby is out!
Hello and welcome!! Dont worry results will be ok! Have faith!
So good. Ppl keep saying my tummy big. I think its fatsOriginally Posted by Smurfete:845023
Hi any one knows about Dr Choo want ling @ Gleneagles ?
My gynae did my OCSAR scan yesterday and baby is kicking so hard! So different from my No. 1 who sleeps all the time. The OSCAR measurements are within acceptable range, now waiting for blood test results today. Phew!
Anyone started taking tonics? My mum in-law says need to start cordyceps to build strength for mother and another month's time, take birds nest to nourish the baby.
Same situation here....by 2 months, most of colleagues have already noticed my pregnancy. But checked my weight and found not much gain. >_<
I can't feel baby kicking yet.. or maybe i dont know what the kick is like haha. Sometimes I feel something but it feels like my own heartbeat lol ... My mother wants to give me birds nest. Why is that good to have in one more month? Now not so much use?
I read online alot of people say can start taking bird nest. Tonic not so sure especially those herbs kind I think best to avoid unless you r very sure those herbs are safe to consume. The chinese believe like durinh certain months the tonics are to nourish the mother and certain months onwards is to nourish the baby. In any case I believe taking stuff like birdnest with rock sugar or maybe chicken essence once a week or once every 2 weeks should be safe?
yes, birdnest is safe to consume during pregnancy. As for tonics yo need to be very careful, there is this gan cao, which pregnant mummies shouldnt eat as it may worsen baby;s jaundice condition. Better be careful
Wa.. I wanted to drink chicken essence coz feel tired in the morning and esp weekend w my girl. Feel so bad that I dont have the energy to accompany her.. Then during my 1st preg, I dare not take any of the tonic. Only bird nest.
As for bird nest, I heard that only can take after 16 weeks coz dont know if will cause baby to be allergy.. Then during 2nd trim you take, baby skin will be very nice! Then 3trim you take will only benefit mother. Haha..
Finally 2nd trim! Ladies, you all got feel better?
I think tonic like cordyceps and essence chicken is to help mummies gain some energy now.. I checked with the tonic shop and they say it is safe to take in moderation after week 12. Bird nest is good for baby skin during 2nd trim.. but can't overeat in 3rd trim coz it might cause phlegm in newborn.. The idea of pacing the tonic is to also ensure that your body and baby can absorb better..once a week on alternate tonic is reasonable.. I started cordyceps once a week, will start to take birdnest at about 16weeks.
Baby kicks alot.. maybe it's second pregnancy so I have started feeling the kicks.. sometimes it is one out-stretched arm (or leg, not sure) and it stays in that pose for a few minutes.. a little uncomfortable especially if pushed against bladder or stomach, other than that, it's quite fun to feel the movement.
Nausea remains bad but not worst , energy is coming back (maybe it's the cordyceps) and that is a big relief, especially when I need to look after my boy after work and on weekends.
Hope everyone is progress well!
hi all, i had just taken a fetal dna blood test with my doc last week, and according to my doc, it is more accurate than OSCAR with a 98.5% accuracy in discovering abnormalities and can even find out the gender too.
What the test does is it takes the mother's blood which contains baby's DNA, and from there, the testing begins.
my hubby and i opted for this as it is more not invasive at all, although the cost is more than double that of OSCAR! - $1700.
by next week, i should be able to know the results. crossing my fingers and hope baby is ok!
I thought energy should return after 12 weeks? But, I am still feeling tired and sleepy. Especially in the afternoon.
Taking essence chicken helps?
