As for my previous gynae at Kandang Kerbau Hospital who doesnt offer package, its the opposite.. told me from 28wks will be every 2wks till 36wks then every wk. Which will be so ex cos its $100+ per visit.
Feel so insecure without scanning regularly as i heard so many stories on how the scan actually saved the baby's life cos can do emergency c-section if there is any problems with the cord etc. Worse is i just read a comment on my gynae which mentioned the poor mummy had a miscarriage and my gynae was totally compassionate. During the process of removal just ask her to stop crying ..nothing to cry about.. baby can always have again.. Zzzz..wonder if she just cares about the money or her patients and their babies..
actually, during my last visit, my gynae ask me not to read too much from online sources else it will make me too kancheong coz there r just too many different line of thoughts regarding what to do or what not to do.. coz i was asking him about counting the number of baby kicks.. in his perspective he was saying some babies r not so active n some r more active so tats not really accurate. but to me, i think all these posts from you gals keeps me on my toes since i might procrastinate n leave everything to last minute.. :P
actually i was pretty moody n depressed last couple of weeks coz i do know that it is highly possible that baby can be here one moment n gone suddenly coz my sis had went through that. i shared that with my hubby n what he say is true.. we might be worried now becoz we can't see baby physically, but even after baby is born, we can only do what we can for baby n if he/she is not fated to be ours, we cant do anything but to accept. so let's all jiayou together and give our baby the best from our knowledge no matter if he/she is in our womb or out. jiayou everyone!
frankly because we are in singapore, we are able to do the scans like every month. i think in other countries, its a norm for them to scan every 2 months or 3 months..
i think the most impt thing is still to count your baby kicks and to ensure your baby is kicking everyday.. i think that is that we need to focus on.. since we cant scan ourselves everyday, every moment. that time when my friend is preggy, the doc commented her cord is very near to the baby neck.. but of cos there is nothing the gynae can do. just pray the cord dont go to the baby neck.. then my gf so worried, everyday cry.. well eventually everything is ok, she delivered a healthy baby.. but sometimes really.. knowledge to us dont know issit good or not.. frankly.. we just need to do our part to ensure baby kicking everyday..
Generally i think singapore gynae behaves like Singaporeans. We are efficient but we are not compassionate. Got IQ no EQ in short. I MC (2months) once in Aussie when i was there for honeymoon. The gynae there is really very very different from Singapore gynae. When i MC, the gynae spent 1 hr talking to me.. allowing me to cry, talk.. and she talks.. they actually have brochures on.. "Threatened miscarriage", "miscarriage", "Trying again".. such topic.. and she just go thru them with me.. giving me facts like.. every 1 in 4 pregnancy will end in MC, unless its continuous MC for 3 times, there is no cause for alarm.. but of cos that is another different culture we are talking about.. But imagine if the earlier patient takes 1hr while you are waiting to see the gynae, i think many of us will just fed up and go away.. think the best we can do is get a gynae who is more caring, and that we need to do homework on our end before we decide on any gynae..
think of the baby as a bonus.. if baby is really safe and sound.. its really something to be really happy about! giving birth is a high-risk process and thats y no insurance companies are willing to cover the full hospitalisation cost if there is any complications. the most they give you is a $100 benefit payment.. baby needs to zz too.. of cos sometimes you wake them they might not kick.. dont think so much.. just ensure in a day, there are minimum 2 times that your baby kicks/rolls 10 times in 1 hr.. especially now inside is getting more cramp, it might be harder for them to give us the strong assuring kick.. so you have to look out for rolls. and rolls for me, usually you got to place your hand over then you can feel it better. i dont know if its true, but i feel that my baby is reactive to my hubby's voice. you may start trying to get your hubby to talk to your baby, the baby might respond too.
Be contented with your gynae... every gynae have different ways of doing things do cannot compared. By going for frequent checkup doesn't mean that nothing will happen. you never know what will happen next second. Even things happen .. We can't blame on our gynae cos he also can't do anything. Be positive & happy .. Talk to your baby ask him or her to be strong. Baby"s life is in their own hands also.. We can't do anything too much also !!
If I m not wrong mine will be bi weekly after 32wks then 1 week once after 36wks.
Thanks mummies for your advises! think too much online info available is very dangerous cos i itchy fingers..better to just dont know anything.. surprisingly my baby is most reactive to my little sister's ears.. everytime she puts it lightly on my tummy baby will kick her ears.. when she place it on another area, baby will kick there too..just like playing catching with her. Very cute.
Now having hard time sleeping.. Pee alot & painful kicks.
Ya it's cute but it's painful. Hubby & I need to ask baby to slow down his kicks.. Cos really it's painful & frustrated you can't be able to sleep.
you should consider yourself Xinfu.. Haha baby not so Notti. My hubby now need to scold baby every night then able to sleep. Somedays we can't even handle.. Whole day baby will be kicking. you will see the jumping even people sitting beside me can see the movement.
Baby's sleeping position just like hubby one leg on top of another so can see my one side tummy a part popping up.
I really want to get this little Notti not out of my tummy fast.. He is not out yet I m a mummy zombie already!!!
