This is a discussion on EDD in December 2009 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by sufeit0115 Wow so many mummies 15 weeks plus.....yup could be baby kicking that's why cannot see.....baby even ...
Hi sufeit0115, if the gynae is able to tell the baby's gender as early as 12 weeks, most probably the baby is a boy yea? That's what I hear others say.
Anyway, Dec mummies, I saw my gynae and heard my twins' heartheats for the very first time. Also saw them moving a lot. So intriguing! My gynae said my twins are very active. Can't imagine when they get bigger. I'll be feeling lots of movements.
Like all the mummies, I am very curious to know the gender of my twins. Will only be able to find out during the detailed scan. A boy and a girl will be ideal! Haha... then I can close factory happily.
here..me too...15weeks..haha...will go for checkup soon.......
Oh, HoneyLicious it's sad you still have morning sickness... With you cross over it soon! During the first trimester I had sickness during the whole day, but now only a little bit in the evening
Stupidyeye, welcome to the 15 weeks club
Ladyminx, you are really lucky waiting for twins! My hubby wished twins much, but... we're waiting for only one baby. They say that there is no chance to have twins if you dont't have twins among parents/grand parents
Very happy so many of mummies in the same week !!
I will be delivering at Kandang Kerbau Hospital too, and EDD is 7 Dec.. originally given as 6 Dec by the gynae.
who's your docter? i'm seeing Benjamin Tham.
i'm still having morning (or rather whole day) sickiness too, and in fact have lost 2kg by the end of the 1st trimester... now at 15 wks plus i'm still below 44kg...
Btw does anyone have a visible baby bump yet? I went to the motherhood expo recently and was actually asked by the vendors whether i'm buying for friends... =(
I am exactly week 16 today =) and because it's my second pregnancy, my baby bump is quite obvious but overall, I still look fat rather than pregnant! Sigh.
baby is always wriggling n wriggling especially at night and early morning when the bladder is full. =)
you can feel your baby moving already?? wow... so exciting! I will be exactly 16 weeks on coming monday, but i dont't feel anything yet.
sometimes my tummy would be completely flat in the mornings when i wake and only bloat a little later in the day as i eat something... so the bump is unlikely to be the baby rite..
I also dont't have a visible bump yet....I looked like gained weight & is looking fat
Becos i dont't have much vomit & nausea, i have gained 2.2kg since i found out i am pregnant at end of Apr
Yup me too, my tummy sometimes very flat in the morning but when come to night time it appeared very big, i also feel is due to bloatedness....hehe
ladyminx, congrats on your twins, i can imagine your excitement, are they identical or fraternal??
cony, ya i got stressed sometimes because the nausea is so bad i can't do anything, hope to get better soon.
sufeit & babybull, me three will be delivering at KK hospital and seeing dr tham, my due date is on 10th but might deliver 2-3weeks earlier as i choose elective c-sect, you guys delivering naturally??
Hi HoneyLicious, my gynae said whether naturally & c-section will have to depend on my BP conditions & the baby's position at the last trimester, but she said very likely BP will go up, so i will have to deliver earlier, most likely will be c-section....sigh...
Most likely we will be Nov's mummies
looks like we're seeing the same gynae. you've already discussed your birth options with Dr Tham? that's fast... i have not't seen him since wk 9. My next appointment would be next week. have not't thought about what kind of birth to choose yet..
is there any reason why you chose elective C-section?
My BP actually dropped a lot even in the first trimester... from normal 120/80 to 98/55.. so i feel faint pretty often. Read that most pregnant mummies' BP will fall during 2nd trimester?
Good to have twins cuz I have 2 children at the price of one??? Hahaha... but the financial requirements after they're born can be overwhelming as well. So there's always pros and cons to every situation.
Right now, I can't feel their movements yet. My gynae said I'll probably be able to feel it one month later. And yes, multiples have a tendency for premature birth. That's our concern too. But gynae said as long as the twins are delivered at least 35 weeks, can breathe and suckle on their own, they'll be fine. So I must keep myself happy and stress-free.
Anyway, Dec mummies, my gynae called me last night to update me on the results of my blood test and test for down syndrome. She said the results are great. Down syndrome is low risk and my blood test is good. No problem at all. So I am very glad to hear that.
Will update once I find out the gender of my twins. Hahaha...
All my friends and everyone around us say that we're very lucky to have twins. Frankly, my husband and I did not feel that way when we first found out we're having twins. In fact, we were more shocked and overwhelmed with stress than anything else. Feeling happy and lucky were the last thoughts. I wasn't happy at all with the news. We were only prepared for one. It took me a couple of weeks to finally come to terms that I am carrying twins.
The book I am reading, 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' covered this point. So our emotions are normal. Haha...
Well, my great grandmother gave birth to twins. It skipped 2 generations and now I carry on the trend in the family history. Haha... It is true that chances of having twins is almost impossible if there isn't any history in your family. However, some older pregnant ladies might be the first to start the trend cuz multiples do happen in pregnancies by older women.
Thanks! Unfortunately, my gynae couldn't determine whether my twins are identical or fraternal cuz they have their own sacs and placentas (which is the best condition for twins to grow evenly). My gynae said for this situation, it could be fraternal or identical (if the egg splitted early).
Therefore, the gender might give us a clue. If it is a boy and a girl, then they must be fraternal twins. If they are 2 boys or 2 girls, then we can only tell after they're born.
Seems like a lot of mummies are seeing Dr Benjamin Tham. He is really good yea? My neighbour, who gave birth in April, also saw Dr Tham. Another friend of mine saw Dr Tham when she had her first child too.
If you experienced fainting, you should talk to your gynae about this. There is one kind of medicine that can raise your BP (I am not sure) cos BP too low is also not good.

btw, do you ladies do both scanning and blood test for down syndrome? cos i choose only scanning thru ultrasound and result is low risk, wonder if blood test is necessary? thanks
Well it's all down to probablity & chances, as long as your ultrasound scanning showed low risk, i think your baby is fine. I presume you are below 35 or even 30 years old, so dont't worry....
I'm new in the forum, this is my first post. Currently 13 weeks, coming to 14th weeks. Yep, EDD 20 Dec, if baby and I can hold till 24 Dec would be great, tsk tsk ^_^
The next scan will be during my 16th weeks. Very excited, wonder if I can tell the gynae not to reveal the gender (well if she can see) since it's my first so doesn't really matter. We thought to keep the baby's sex a surprise but guess it's gonna be hard to resist not to know, hehe
