hi ladies just want to ask if you all have started feeling the flutters in your tummy already?
I actually feel last week and baby was very active... but this week like cant really feel.. is this normal?
Hi jaster150704, able to elaborate further? This is my 1st pregnancy. I did feel something around this wk but I really not sure if that the baby moving or maybe just the gas or I maybe too sensitive.
Hi All! I'm also EDD March - 7th. I'm already very very huge!! In fact I showed like 2 months in! Friend of mine didn't show till around 6 mths... guess it was all the eating I've been doing. Was the only way I could stop the nausea. I also think maternity wear's expensive and sometimes butt ugly - have bought a load of stretchy dresses from forever 21 for like $30 each - was a frantic buy coz I dont't fit into any of my clothes anymore!
Dear mummies to be,
Do you happen to know the accuracy of a 15+ week scan?
I went for my regular gynae appt on Monday. My gynae scrutinized the ultrasound image and even zoomed in to show my hubby n I that I am expecting a baby boy. He said he was certain it was a boy as the "growth" between the baby's leg was around 5mm.
I must say that my baby was very co-operative, opening his/her legs wide to show off...
Although I was glad to learn that the baby is growing well and healthily, I was a little bit disappointed , cos I was hoping for a gal...
Does any one know that if there's any chance that it would turn out to be a gal on my 20 week scan??
Just to add on, I was supposed to be around 15 wk 5 days on Monday, but the size on the ultrasound appeared as 16 week 3 days.
I am quite puzzled... Does it mean I might be due early than expected??
Since baby is bigger in size would it mean that it might possibly be due earlier...
Really hope that I will still be able to deliver naturally.
P.s- I weighed 10 pounds plus at birth...
hmmm... i see
I shall eat less carbohydrates... but what puzzles me is that I eat less than before I was pregnant...
Think I must cut down more....
wondering if you all have already started shopping for the baby essentials? Any brands that have been recommended by your friends for the following items?
2) Breast pump and breast milk storage (bottles or bags better)
3) Sterilizer & BPA free milk bottles
4) Baby Cot / Travel cot
5) Receiving blanket (any particular material that we should look out for?)
I bought the pigeon silent pump... and the storage bags, got the storage bottles for free...
Hmmm.... the storage bottles are BPA free.
It can be used as feeding bottles too
He also told me that my baby's gestational age is more mature (i guess thats the no. of weeks you see in your scan) so he insists i'm now due in end feb and not mid march. I heard they can adjust your delivery date at a certain time in your pregnancy, then it will be fixed already.
1) Stroller - i know what I want but havent buy yet. They dont give discount for bugaboos, so sad. so i can take my time to buy it...what if they come out with a new model in a couple of months?
2) Breast pump and breast milk storage (bottles or bags better) - have not done any research on this
3) Sterilizer & BPA free milk bottles - i know glass bottles are heavy but i plan to use them at home (there are some with protective rubber like Life Factory's) and BPA free plastic ones when im out.
4) Baby Cot / Travel cot - wanted a cot from mothercare in darkwood but they say it can take 4 mths to deliver so im going to order this week.
5) Receiving blanket (any particular material that we should look out for?) - organic cotton!
A close relly of mine had cancer and did all sorts of research on what causes it, so i'm more concerned about using glass instead of plastic when i can and organic stuff. well, i guess i dont mind stinge-ing on myself so my kid can have the best. mother's sacrifice starts now!
Wow, you gals really act fast... I havent even think of these stuffs yet. Now only keep worrying about my baby if he/she is growing healthy in my tummy.
My friend suggest that I shld start shopping in Dec or Jan next yr (ie. nearer to the due date). I think is better that way cos if I buy too early and next time when I go shopping and see something even more nicer or prettier then I will buy again so might as well wait till nearer to due date OR see if there any Baby Sale coming up at end of yr.
