Ya .. Very grateful that this gynae is good. one thing good about him is .. Even thou" half way tru he need to go for delivery baby. He will ask all the mummies to wait & he will be back. He is always gentle.. During the scan .. He will always keep asking me .. Am I ok. Very fatherly.. My friend recommend this gynae as she was telling me this doc is very good in stitching.. Painless & very fast!
Have you all decide which hospital for delivery? My gynae already booked my hospital stay @ mount alverina.
I think I paid 140? They add together with Oscar so I also can't remember much.
Mine is not done by the gynae. Initially I went to another gynae at amk but I think she wanted me to go singapore general hospital for scans. N because she not situated within the hospital I think it's a bit troublesome if I need urgent help during delivery n the gynae is not around.
I have friends delivering n the gynae still on the way stuck in traffic. That's y end up I just go Thomson Medical Center n select everything from Thomson Medical Center.
Haha. He dont like other guys to touch or see me.
But I think my this 2nd gynae is quite gentle too, compared to my first one. The first time I visit her, the baby was smaller than expected n she got to use vaginal scan instead. She still tell me.." Sorry, I need to insert, you just relax.... Ok it's done, I will slowly withdraw it out.. you just relax ok..."
Wa . My first gynae just open your legs, then she poke in (I miscarriaged once n she handled the case).. Then *sigh loudly*.. Then out.. Ok wear your pants.. Leave everything on the bed.. Really like primary sch kid at the mercy of the dentist.. Haha! The worst thing that happened is.. She asked me if I'm working. I say no. I replied I'm having depression, so just relax a bit at home first before going onto the next job. Then she commented "only depression then not working. Then whole Singapore no need to work already."
After that visit I swear I wun go back to her. Though my hubby was ok with her comments, he said she is straight forward though tactless.
I say doc needs more then just skills . I dont like her way of talking to patients. Absolute no compassion. Though I know she isn't compassionate, but that time I'm in pain n only her clinic got slot for me. I believe she is very skillful , her action is very swift, just attitude a bit. Other gynae all ask me to go visit them a few days later.. So I no choice..
Some female gynae went comes to facing any complications during delivery .. They are not firm enough to handle situations.. Stitching sometimes was poorly done.
Visit those gynae that you feel comfortable .. Most important!
If discovered later... Baby might come out premature.
Come on its just a glucose test... What's more compare to giving birth... Jia you

Ya I also prefer male Gynae. Most females r mode rough becoz they think they been through so if they can do it y we can't. I sacred ppl to be rough to me. I sacred I will kick them off. my current Gynae also very fatherly. Watever steps he going to do to my bottom he will let me know too. N if I have any discomfort. He will applogise. Stitching also good previously he was from Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Now he came out n do for his own practise. He is now operates in gleneagles thus I will also deliver there too. Coz my first thinking come to my mind is if I will be delivering during weekdays he will just need to come up from downstairs rather than travel haha
I have not't really started to buy anything yet. Only bought bottles/warmer/sterilizer n a few pieces of clothing. That's it.
My friend already finished buying everything by detailed scan. Ha... I think we apr mummies mostly all boys, think shopping is not so exciting I guess. Hee hee.
Ya for baby boy nothing much to buy. But if manage to find nice clothes must grab it coz really hard to find. Me just use back my no.1 boy clothes. But will be buying new clothes for him to discharge n mittens. to be fair to both haha. Both got new clothes when discharge.
Wow diliys you make a very good pt. I must go n book mine after I did my detailed scan. If not like you says dragon year!
But she never ask me how many bedded im going for .. how about you girls? sharing rooms or single bedded? I think im very spoilt .. before im preggy i already tell my hubby i need him be with me ALL the time before and after i give birth in hospital. i say i dont want to be left alone there... so if he were to stay with me, no choice got to be single bedded.
just a few months ago my friend delivered and she booked a 2-bedded room. she checked in afternoon around 12pm after delivery and the next mummy joined her at 12am, the other mum just delivered after a long labour. and sadly, the hubby is being chased out of the room cos visiting hours is over. i think so sad.. you spent so much time pushing and pushing.. then finally out, and happy.. then hubby got to be chased home..
i know im spolit .. haha.. i just think giving birth is like the MOST IMPT event of my life (its not even wedding) apart from my BIRTHDAY itself, the day i was born. i really want to be treated with respect and be showered with love and attention.
The amount you paid till delivery is your monthly gynae visit till birth. No including hospital stay.. Usually they will not booked for you if you never requested. As some mummies may visit the gynae at traditional chinese medicine and choose to deliver @ other hospital.
Haha .. I am going to take 4 bedded stay. My mentality is always .. I just need a place for delivering my baby that's all. Wouldn"t want to spend extra few hundred to stay on a single bed or 2 bed. My hubby won"t with me in the hospital also.. Cos" basically we thinks that after all giving birth I will be spending my night resting, so not point again wasting another few hundred for my hubby"s stay. (extra bed & meals)
My hubby & I think that we would rather spend the few hundred to buy baby stuff or a hoilday hotel stay (*not hospital stay) after delivery. Hehe we think it's more worth it!
My hubby told me that after delivery, he will keep me accompany till after visiting hours, goes back home and prepared (*clean up the house) to welcome back to our house. Beside that he will cooked some confinement food for me whenever he come visiting me so he took me .. he needs time to prepare & stuff.
Oh ya .. My hubby was telling me that he will boil red date drink for me to drink once after my delivery everyday for one month.. No drinking of plain water. I think that's good also... Red date drink they always tell me it's good for "replenish" the lost of blood.
i also like him to have some time of his own to rest as the arrival of baby will be overwhelming for him..some of his own time to think & absorb what should he do when baby goes home.
I can ask to have baby to sleep with me.. So I dont't think I need my hubby. At least I can spent some quiet moments with my little boy... Just the 2 of us .... Haha...
Choose what is best for you ... Jia you !!
I also going to opt for 2 bedded stay. At 4 bedded I onli sacred of the toilet hygience. Coz other than patients they visitors will be using it. For no. 1 I stay in 1 bedded at Kandang Kerbau Hospital my hubby really there for me when I need him. But now I got experience n won't be delivering at Kandang Kerbau Hospital so will choose 2 bedded. Mentality same as diliys. just stay there for a few days n go home.
diliys just one advice my own opinion. If possible during hospital stay at nite try to let baby sleep at nursury. Try to rest as much as possible. Coz when you go back with baby you won't have good rest .
