Just wanna make lotsa mummytobe friends here so that I'd have companions throughout~
Let me self intro abit. I was married last yr Jun and ended up with an "accident" in dec. EDD 16 sep. Zzz.. Initially still pondering over to keep anot, but kenna nagged by the doc. Now 1st trimester felt lagi Sianz, affecting my Job cos I often travel around but either feel nauseous or drowsy~
Wanna chk with you ladies, is it ok to pop the anti-nauseous pill daily?
ohh i see.. my pills from doc one.. just that i heard from many friends that they stopped themselves from taking it too, cos scared affect baby..
EDD on 20th sept or 24th sept.. lol doc cant tell the actual one.
now i try not to take any pills except gyne ones..
even not feeling too good also just sleep more n rest more n do nothing if possible
My EDD is 26 Sep going by LMP and 29 Sep going by baby size. Either way, ours is a Libra baby! Just saw it today and we're very happy
Qian1984, you're very lucky to get such a good accident! We tried for over a year before we got pregnant!
i had been trying for 4 years and we finally got it.. its quite exciting but scary at the same time..
i do feel lost and very tired easily..
Mei2009: me initially dont wanna get tied down so fast, you see I hvnt earn enough then gotta start spending already! When I let out this news to my bosses colleagues friends or family, every single one also happier than me ! Lol.. But I spent 1 whole wk considering about it, then really afraid of "karma" (what if nxt time I want also dont have) so no choice gotta go on.. Even my gynae scared me when I tried to ask for his reassurance that abortion in 2nd wk shld b super safe one right? He actually said, sorry no guarantee one, just like you cross the road, cannot guarantee you sure won't kenna accident right? Wah lau then I was like (-_-")
Rabbitmummy: ya I understand hw you feel, I also scared ! Lol.. So must come here make good friends support and share with each other.. Prob sometime in 2nd trimester we cn meet up for some coffee n cakes when we cn eat better! Lol
Now Whenever I wear heels to work, I'd get naggings fr my clients! Are you ladies still working? Believe most of you belonged to office hours job? Poor me, I'm so called self employed, no maternity leave one! Sobsob..
Qian1984, ya, some things cannot be bought with money... My colleague wore heels when she was a ball .. Just be careful then it's ok.. I won't trust myself cos I fell down on flats before!!
rabbitmummy, wow, four years! You must be very happy now! Just relax and enjoy your pregnancy - the little discomfort is worth it after four years right? I started feeling very lazy - nowadays cannot wake up for work.. But I work part-time and the hours are quite flexible so I'm lucky..
wah, flats also can trip! POWER~ hehe..
do you ladies often experience dreams? I used to sleep throughout the night but ever since pregnant, i every night also dreamt of something, each time new story somemore! lol~ these made me very tired when i woke up and also often had backaches..
I think there is some literature on dreams during pregnancy - I saw on some websites before.. But I've always been dreaming so I'm already discussing dreams with husband My trouble was constant waking up in the middle of the night - seemed to be better this week though.. Maybe cos I started walking 30min every other day.. I'm monitoring it..
i am just a fixed term contractor and my contract ends in august.. 1 month before the EDD.. I wrote to MOM, says cannot claim if the contract is over so
Whether they renew or not, as i am not sure what goes through management mind, they can just terminate pple anytime. I had lost my jobs before so i dont want to have any hopes for now. Just taking 1 step at the time.
yeah sure we all can meet up
actually it came to a surprise as i had spotting but i felt very different that whole week as i am fortunate that i dont have morning sickness but evenings i get more sick (i wonder my baby is night baby) lol
it was quite a shocker even my hubby dont believe it..
we just hope the baby will come out well and normal.
i have dreams but i cant remember them.. i wake up middle of the nights to go toilets.. and hardly can sleep well.
i might start looking for part time jobs but not sure what i can do..
Rabbitmummy: that's bad, contract job sure take the chance to give crap reason not to renew once they know you r preggie.. What Is your expertise? R you good at telemarketing? I might need part timers for that.. I also had night sickness instead of morning sickness, that's pretty weird huh.. But my case, I suspect maybe is becos I only popped the anti-nausea pill in the morning so maybe it's effect cn only last till evening.. Lol
Mei2009: do you have repeated dreams? I already can't rem most cos always diff stories! But none gave me any special numbers to buy .. Hehe.. I heard pregnant ladies are more "lucky" so maybe you all like to try for the 10mil toto tomorrow.. Lol. Btw you woke up in the middle of nite due to what? Go toilet? Or just out of blue? If it's the latter, maybe you need to relax more, walking is good, make you tired then cn zzz better.. Me only trouble is always woke up earlier than usual cos forced to go toilet even thou I already make sure I went before I go bed!
Ya I agree with Qian1984 - contract jobs likely won't renew when employers know you're pregnant so better be prepared..
My dreams were usually quite different. Sometimes they continued from previous dreams! I'm still dreaming but now I dont't wake in the middle of the night. Used to wake suddenly between 2am and 6am - just woke and had stuffy nose and took an hour or so before I could get back to sleep. It was so tiring... Now I sleep through but wake up feeling sleepy - at least I dont't feel tired, just feel lazy haha!
That is good, you work part time as what btw? Like that means most of sept mummies got no maternity! Lol
I do social media stuff. But I should get maternity leave, thankfully..
Just spoken to my manager and there are a few options..
(dont’t forget that there is the PERFORMANCE thingy)
Temp – come in from june to Jan to help
Convert to Perm – Which is not likely ( first 3 months no benefits)
High chance – End contract in August…
Of coz my manager keep saying based on performance etc etc but I feel after talking to him
Its like under high chance to get end of contract in august.
Well for company wise, its much easier to get another contractor who can just do admin job
Then hiring 1 temp to cover me.
Convert me to perm is tough chance and I dont’t get anything from it too…
So now I dont’t know what I can do.
Expertise? Just admin and sales coordinator but I am not good with telemarketing
Quite down as I dont’t know what will happen to me but just take things at the step at the time.
I even wrote to MOM to ask, as long contract ended the employee is not obligated to pay anything.
I dont’t like contract job but its so hard to find perm job after losing it 2 years ago….
I am new here just to say a big hi to sep mummies
EDD- 6 Sep
Hospital-Kandang Kerbau Hospital
rabbitmummy, hope in the end your boss is kind enough to really base on performance and not your pregnancy!
Is any mummy here doing first trimester down screening between 11 and 14 weeks? I'm going to do it but my husband is going on a study trip during that time, quite sian!
i just did my dear son scan ystd
its is routine test the oscar test is simliar to Down Syndrome test. first the scan is done where the doc measures following things
crown rump lenght (CRL)
Nuchal Translucency (not)
the above two factors they compare in form of a graph against the existing statistics they have they also check other miscellaneous stuff ...its a detail scan based on the scan they will determine whether amnio or CVS is required
the results are given to you immediately
typo not dear son .. its down syndrome
Yst i went to Thomson Medical Center to scan.. Baby keep showing us backside and jumping around.. Then the lady frown and said, "Aiya, I wanna see the baby face"
Yst she measured a lot of things.. I thot they will measure the neck only.. but rather she had lots of other measurements too like listening to the heartbeat, look at the face, measuring legs and hands, measuring around the head.
By the way, Mine is just the Normal Down Syndrome test..
I paid 231.50 for Down Syndrome Test and 20th week Detailed Scan..
Hi Carisella, yes she saw the baby face i paid 160 dollars ... yea they measure a few things that are listed in the report
Carisella i also stay at Bukit batok .. where do you stay exactly
Thanks, Engineer! My info sheet says blood test and the translucency thing only...
And Carisella, you paid only $231 for both down screening and 20th week detailed scan?? That's so cheap! it's US$290 just for the down screening for me! =(
Hi All have you MTB registered for prenatal classes yet?
