This is a discussion on EDD Mar 2014 within the Year 2014 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by honeygirl Dear jo1402, hi ! At first I also thinking when will my bump show ? Now ...
Really? I've been told so many times that I dont look preg although I can see a bit of bump if the tummy is not covered by clothes ;p. Also been told to eat more, but at times the appetite is really off, and can be the whole day -_-. Somehow my hubby seems "more preg" than me cos he has food cravings (why not me?!) haha... I'm coming to 12 weeks tomorrow. Thankful on one hand that my pants still fit and I can still squeezed onto the train easily but on the other hand, no one is offering seats yet ;p
Been applying moisturizer or aloe vera gel on itchy parts of tummy now.
Thanks for the encouragement.
Did my scan yesterday, blood test they say will take a few days. according to them, base on my scan the risk factor is low. hopefully the blood test also yields similar results.
so cute, i didn't know baby will 'jump' in the womb. while doing the scanning can see my baby whole thing like 'jumping' once in a while. errr. I dont think i explain what i meant every well, but hope some will understand.
actually before the scan I was a bit depress. keep thinking how come I have this sucking MS just because i'm pregnant. but strangely after yesterday scan. I dont feel so depress . this is my 12th week and I feel that my hunger pangs getting worse. It seems like I need to eat every hour!! I hope things can get back to normal by week 13th.
typ - i think it may be better for you to try those 'fresh' type. Not those UHT type. usually i'm ok with milk, but currently I realise I cannot stand UHT milk (I think i tried 2-3 brands) , I would literally reject it within minutes. but those 'fresh' type though I dont really like them, but aleast not to the extend of them being unbearable.
I look pregnant already -_- feel like I'm totally unable to suck my tummy in so can definitely see it's big especially after a whole day of eating...I'm normally quite slim so maybe there is nowhere else for baby to go but to push my tummy out more... haha. I can't hide it already, most of my colleagues found out by looking at me. according to doctor's weighing, I've put on 1.7kg so far this trimester. I can still hide my tummy with baggy shirts but lately since everyone already knows I've been wearing my lycra clingy shirts, makes me look even more pregnant haha! quite fun!
ya, LH, it's so cute to see baby moving inside during the ultrasound right?? also I prefer to drink fresh milk - have been taking Meiji but lately switched to Farmhouse milk cuz I feel the taste is creamier. if you dont't like the milk taste, you can add a bit of natural honey to it to make it taste nicer. honey is good for you anyway
Hello all mummies!
I'm new to this forum and reading up on pregnancy again cause its my second kid!! Now about 12 weeks 6days and EDD on 14th March 2014!!
Having major ms (mostly just bad nausea), hard to eat food and drink, hope this goes away soon.. Didnt have much MS though with my first son, hmm...
Am also showing already cause second pregnancy and cant fit almost most jeans
Hope to interact with all mums here!
How old is your firstborn? Mine is going to be 11months.
I'm also showing already at 14weeks. Kinda worried how big I'll get during this pregnancy.
My firstborn is already 4 years old and 2 mths boy!
Your age gap for both kids is near so good!!
Yeah loh, actually when i was 8 weeks preggy already getting tight with most jeans, now is all cant wear at all *sobsob*
Now must bring all baggy shirts and pants out again or wear those dresses that's loose to fit me now...
I really envy those mummy who only grew weight all at the stomach, unlike me.. if i grow weight, sure all is around whole body one not only stomach..

Anyway i am going for my oscar test on monday, hope everything turns out well
Just to check if first trimester scan and Oscar
test the same? And any mummy experience
Emotionally sensitive ? Like cry easily over some
issues and angry over something .....
Rachie82: yeah I gt auto wake up mode too, around 4am or 5am+ since preg but recently less so.
Honeygirl: I cried twice after knowing I'm preg - once cos worried who can cover my work when I'm on maternity n 2nd time cos no one can take care of my baby when I go back to work. Both times cos sudden feeling of helplessness...
Thank ! Jo1402, but I felt sentive and cried over
my work issue not about pregnancy and the future
plan ...cos I know nowadays pregnant women
will tend to have Pre or post natal blue just worry
may think too much
Jo, if you are handy with a sewing machine, I bought cotton knit from Chinatown to sew my own belly belt. Paid $12 per yard and can sew like 5-6 belly belts! very worth it. Another thing you can do is buy L size tubes to wear as belly belt. Feel that the branded version is not very worth it as it is just a cotton knit tube also. Can sew it myself.
I also feel like the screen very far away, hard to see clearly. Maybe I should ask my gynae to turn the other screen to show me also!!
Morning ! Mummy!
What is belly belt for? Is there a need to wear it ?
When need to wear it? Please advise
Honeygirl, belly belt is just like a button extension to continue wearing your normal jeans or pants when you cannot button them anymore... Hehe. So that you can continue to wear the normal pants. Some people also wear BellaBand which is like a stomach tube top to cover the unbuttoned parts of your pants/jeans. You can google to see the picture
just bought the angel sounds doppler frm e internet!! Omg..I feel an addiction coming up! Always wanting to chk on baby heartbeat! @,@
Going for OSCAR tml..fingers crossed..
Any mom has lil pain around e vaginal wall areas?googled n it says mayb uterus pressing on nerves..any similar exp?
I sometime feel that too on the pubic site or the private area , sometime at the
left or right side of tummy heard it is the uterus expanding . All the best for your
oscar test Tom
Anybody looking for confinement nanny? I have mine to highly recommend. She is very experienced and used to be from a reputable agency but now working on her own so looking for clients. She can cook excellent confinement dishes, have knowledge of herbs and traditional chinese medicine. Her handling of baby is highly raved. She sings n talks to my boy when he is awake. Can tell she is very passionate in her work.. My boy was born 3.20kg but now he's a month old and almost 4.5kg! She is pro-breastfeeding and even helped me to get hot towel to massage my breasts. My breast milk is over productive thanks to her cooking.. So I am helping her to find her next customer as she is very good! Interested pls PM me, I am sure she will be very popular once she is in the market for sometime n not bounded by agency. you can quote my name to get a discount!
But usually when shall be appropriate time to
get a confinement nanny ? Since my EDD is march next
year please advise
Well, up to you..no right or wrong. For my current nanny, I actually got her the last min as my previous one couldn't make it. But turns out she is so good!! for the more popular nanny you may need to book as soon as you got pregnant so you can get her booking.
