This is a discussion on EDD in Oct'09 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by Bluebeari Hi, EDD 18 Oct 09. First timer. Will most probably deliver at Mt. Alvernia. Not sure ...
baby small but as long as delivery is above 2kg shld be ok . my 2nd 1 also small i force myself drink milk eat more eat durian. Cos 1st 3 mths i lost 3 to5kg i did gain back but baby not growing much. But she was 2.94kg at delivery so ok .. still early to say baby small size. Most impt healthy. My gal now is meaty fatty . even thou my son was 3.25kg at birth my gal weigh is almost 9 to 10kg while my son at her age only 5 to 6kg haha... PPL same y my son so skinny daughter so fat
I hate milk but i love coffee (sinner!).. wonder does caffine affect the growth but my gynae never said anything, just told me to limit to 1 cup a day...
Every time visit to gynae is about $90-$100, after 12 weeks take package.
Package is about $700 but not include medicine.
So, total until my 40weeks is about $900.
Before 7 month - 4 weeks per visit
7 month - 3 weeks per visit
8 month - 2 weeks per visit
9 month - once a week
After calculate, every visit is about $65-$75.
Assistant of gynae show me the list - Natural give birth she charges about $850.
Is is expensive?

Based on my experience 4yrs ago (2005) when i gave birth to my girl, i paid a deposit of $1.1k to book e room and bal i paid about $600+ cash more after CPF deduction coz mine is an induce labour with 2 times of epidurals taken.
Hopefully i wont need induce and epi this time as I wonder how much will it cost 4yrs later?!!
$500 pay at clinic and bal $400 pay in hospital to deduct medisave.
I deliver at Mt. A :
Yr04 > 4bedded ( but they renovating so free upgrade me to 2 bedded ) when discharge i pay almost $1k cash after medisave
Yr08 > 2bedded when discharge i pay $1.5k cash after medisave
Yr09 > dont know yet shld be same as Yr08
Hubby and I both are PR's, so if I choose KK also need to paid the price as private patient and the waiting time heard is a bit long.
Since the price is the same with private clinic, so I choose to Thomson Medical Center (another reason is I prefer Female Gynae)
Thou i delivery Mt A my clinic visit is at my gynae private clinic at woodlands MRT can reach there liaoz. When i wanna deliver just take cab or ask in law drive me there
Hmm now i need prepare go clinic collect MC cos i 1/2 day work today
lol... actually, i have the same tots with the mummies here... i also heard that 9 out of 10 male gynea are more patient and gentle but i also shy shy...and have a female gynea instead... infact, i was assigned to her since day 1 so just stick to her since she also not bad... dear husband also more comfortable with me having a female gynea...
