This is a discussion on EDD Sep 2010 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; er... I dont know if it is the baby tummy or bloated tummy... but I cant button my jeans and pants ...
er... I dont know if it is the baby tummy or bloated tummy... but I cant button my jeans and pants already...
I bought a pants frm Spring maternity for CNY...the elastic part can adjust many different "circumference"... so I can still loosen if I get really bloated but still make it smaller when need to so that it is not too loose... very useful... they have xs-xl... Delvy you can go check it out...
Thanks thanks Mrs eg =) I will check it out.
I totally agree with you!! Every day i look at the countdown in my phone and wondering when it's gonna show...and when the 12th week mark will finally arrive! Wish ppl can tell so that I dont't have to explain why I am so tired and need a comfy seat at the restaurant or answer questions like "is this gonna be a gift" when i go look at baby stuff...Have you gone shopping for baby stuff yet? I am quite at a lost at what to buy! Do share with me if you got certain things that you really like...i'm gonna be back in April to shop in SG
Went to the gynae 2days ago, and my EDD was pushed back to the 21st of Sept (1st visit to the Dr in taipei didn't give me a EDD, 1st visit to Dr in SG said 21st...but i was hoping it'll be sooner so i estimated at 18th.) Anyways, it felt like i just lost 3 days in the pregnancy and I have to wait another week to announce to the world that i'm pregnant..haha ok..not to the world .
Oh yes! While the Tw gynae tried to confirm how old the baby is thru the ultrasound we saw baby STRETCH TOO! super cool ! hahahas....could see the arms and the legs...suddenly it seems so much more closer to reality compared to the clump we saw the first time..heheh...bet you felt super excited too! AMAZING RIGHT!
We're also scheduling another ultrasound scan + blood test next week to test for Down Syndrome & other abnormalities...Dr said accuracy is 90-95% during this period (11+ to 13+ weeks)...compared to 80-85% from the 15th to 20th week...but the one in 2nd trimester will include 1 more abnormality test...Is any one of you going for (has gone for) this as well?
Oh yes...also wondering if any of you have started taking photos of your side profile/tummy? Read from "What to expect" that it'll be something we wont regret doing...hehe but still not sure what top to wear...it'll need to be able to stretch enough for the last few weeks! Any suggestions?
thea...I think the Down Syndrome & other abnormalities test done with ultra scan + blood test is the one I just did last week. We call it OSCAR (One Stop Clinic for Assessment of Risk of Fetal Anomalies). This is usually done during the 1st trimester. They will do the measurement of the baby and some blood test. Then they will have this ratio for you to tell the probability of having a down syndrome kid. Age, whether is this your 1st born and whether you are a smoker all play a part. If the ratio/risk is high, your gynae may recommend you to go for amniotic test during the 2nd trimester.
Buying things for baby... I havent done yet... Last time before I got pregnant I went to buy (cos very cheap hehehe),... without knowing that it is actually a taboo to buy baby and maternity stuffs before you get pregnant... anyway I was asked to "give" them away ... or put "somebody else's home" ... but I didnt believe... went thru trying to concieve for some time.. until i finally decided to give some away... I got pregnant soon after!!!
Anyway I was also told not to buy baby stuffs too early even when Im pregnant ... dont know when is the benchmark to start buying also... it is a kind of chinese superstition if im not wrong... Anyone hear before??? tonight I go check again with my mum..... btw are you singaporean chinese?
Btw way have you seen the "pregnancy for Dad" section?
ladies... get your hubby to read this... very useful...
For Dad During Pregnancy -- For Dad During Pregnancy -- WhatToExpect.com
So by 10wks can see baby movements already? I'll be going for my visit next Sat which will be the 11wk so hopefully we can see some movements. Can't wait to go for the next scan.
Ever since I'm 6weeks preggie, I can't put on any of my pants, shorts & jeans. My bump is also pretty obvious on the 7week, maybe it's the fats + bloatedness. Hehe~
Hope we are lucky to be able to see some things that day.
Also i heard alot of my friends' gynae telling them to drink ORange juice or somethg sweet before the scan so the baby will be more active n you can c them move. think its due to higher sugar level that they become more active!
I think my hubby's tummy growing better than mine. He looks 6 mths pregnant already ! I wish time passes faster=\
Hope to join you, my EDD is 20 Sept 2010, this will be my #2
Pinkymummy... Very soon... Update us!
Jynnsan! Welcome!!!! N congrats!!! Have you seen your baby yet?? So your 1st is a boy or gal?
Oooh so much has happened here! Oh yeah Delvy i remembered the gynae said it's the Neural Tube test gonna do the ultrasound n blood test next week!
Ok, good night everyone!
I totally agree... another 12 weeks seems so far........ but I guess at the end of it all... we will probably all go "wah... so fast 40weeks past"
And to answer your question, I am singaporean chinese too...
As for the top to feature in your prenancy portfolio.. I guess just a simple comfy t-shirt or blouse that is not the baggy type will do... or maybe spaghetti top? anyway I only intend to take pics of the tummy part only... other photos with face... taken when I go check up, or go out etc... I will probably wear nicer... hahaha
My #1 is boy, am going for my oscar + blood test next Monday, will be 12 weeks by then.
Oscar is done by a combi of N.T + taking a sample of mother's blood to test levels of free beta hCG and PAPP-A... which i dont know what they are (copied the whole chunk frmt he brochure) ... so dont ask me, ask doctor hehehe....
N.T is $113(accuracy 80%) OSCAR is $298 (accuracy 90%)
wil be doing N.T (me only) and some blood test (for both me and hubby) for blood abnormalities i think.........
Dear all MTBs,
I'm new to this forum and not very sure how to post a thread.
Hope I get it right :>
My estimated due date is Mid Sept 2010.
However, how does the doc calculate the due date ?
My own estimation and his estimation has a difference of 2 weeks.
But, I dont dare to question him haha.
Not sure how they calculate also, bt frm what i knw they ultrasound scan your tummy, the device will sort of auto estimate your EDD. maybe according to the size of baby?
Anyway there are also online pregnancy due date calculator which uses your 1st day of last menses. Like this one Welcome to Motherhood Due Date Calculator
anyway frm what ive read, both around not 100% accurate also hahaha
a lot of you are doing it today huh! I hope the position of your baby will be just nice for the scan! *fingers crossed for mine too* doctor said if the baby is not positioned just nice for the scan then we can only scan in the 2nd trimester.
lately i've been getting on and off stabbing pains around my chest area (& on the back as well), around where the bra sits...briefly googled online and a few said it's due to indigestion/heartburn and others said it's perhaps a strained ribcage and can be avoided as long as we try not to carry heavy stuff n exert our muscles. Any of you experiencing something similar?
