Hi Minfatong and clap,
Sorry for the late update... i went batam right after the detailed scan and just got back last night... heehee
I think the detailed scan is quite exciting cuz my hubby went with me for the first time... so it's his first time seeing our baby on screen... haha basically the radiologist (is that what they call the person who does ultrasound scan?) does a scan on all the body parts as well as the vital organs... i asked about the gender right away so she quickly scan between the legs... it's a BOY... kinda expected it cuz my hubby's family is mostly boys though i would like a girl... then scan the brain, heart, kidney, etc, it gets quite technical so halfway i am lost about what she is scanning... but she uses quite a bit of strength when scanning... dont be shocked when she presses hard on your tummy! then scan the facial features, hands, legs, spine... it seems like my boy is quite active and keeps moving around... she was telling my boy "baby, dont't move!" several times cuz she could not scan properly with him moving non-stop...
at the end, i get two copies of printed report with a few pics printed on normal A4 paper... one for the gynae and one for me to keep... not all pics were printed... she only printed those essential for gynae to see...
btw i started feeling my baby move around 18 weeks liddat... at first very small movements that usually cannot detect unless lying down quietly on the side.. these few days the movements become stronger... sometimes i get a thud in the tummy and i wonder what happened??? :s but everyday is different... just gotta keep a lookout on it...
for the ab pain, i think it should be fine as long as no bleeding? on and off, i get pain in the lower ab as well.. out of suddenly, i can be feeling frequent pain for one or two days and then its gone for a week... think it is just the uterus stretching or something? dont't worry too much... if you have concerns, you can tell your gynae to check for you...
one more thing is through the detailed scan, you can know the position of your placenta... mine was low lying... my gynae said ok for me to fly (cuz i wanna have a trip prior to baby born)... but he mentioned that if my placenta does not move up eventually, he would ask me to go for caesarean... >_< i very much want to have a normal delivery... so hopefully, my placenta can move up or maybe my baby can move it for me... haha
update us about your detailed scans ok? ^^
dont worry for the abd pain, think is the ligament strain, as our uterus expand, it will stretch the ligament. But is good to notify your gynae. I had the abd pain two weeks ago, during the day time. And it was worse when I went for brisk walking. My friend who is also expecting told me to buy the belly support belt. But I can't find the thin slim belt I want.
Oo.. I hope my mid-trimester scan is this week.. So keen to see the baby.. And find out the gender.. Haha!!
I noticed that the baby is very active whenever I am watching soccer match with my husband... Wahaha! And know, I can always feel the baby movement after food. Haha!!!
Are we suppose to jolt down the frequency of baby movement?
Shiawase, CONGRATS on your boy!
Thanks for sharing your scanning experience! Kinda disappointed that there isn't a DVD to take home.
But it sure is exciting to feel the baby move already isn't it!

Interedted parties, pls PM.
I'm starting to feel little movements nowadays too. I can't wait for the light thumping that comes around 22 weeks! Right now it's probably little somersaults
At this stage there's probably no need to count movements. It's usually late pregnancy when there's not much space for baby to move, then you may feel at least 10 movements a day. With my son he wouldn't stop moving so I didn't bother jotting down anything.
Enjoy the feeling of life partying inside your belly!
It could be because of the digestion noises of the tea hahahah. More movements to come! Sometimes you can see if they react to noise as well. Oh and whatever songs/music you like, listen to it a lot and your baby will like it too! It's not necessary to listen to classical stuff
dont worry about that =) i'm having the same prob also but gynae assure me that when baby grows , it will slowly move up ! =)
grats on your boy btw !
I went for the detailed scan yesterday. Like Shiawase said the sonographer scanned all the body parts as well as the vital organs and she also confirmed that is a BOY too! haha. (But i still dont believe 100%, just got to know my cousin in law that should be delivering in mid oct is carrying a gal but not a boy, she went for detailed scan to confirm that is a boy too! She is quite disappointed as that will be her 2nd gal, she thought she can close shop if this is a boy.)
I noticed that every time after the sonographer snap 1 or 2 shots then she got to go round my stomach again to search for the baby, i think the baby dont like the interference sound wave create by the ultrasound, so he will swim away and face down..haha. At once, we saw him in relaxing position, lying on his right hand to support his head and 2 legs wide open..(that is his daddy favorite sleeping position...lol)
I have call Thomson Medical Center before i went for the scan and they said they will only provide printed pics in A4 paper, DVD only given out for optional 4D scanning in later stage, which I dont think i will go for it.
The result on the scan are fine! Everything normal, except my placenta still slightly low and i got few fibroid, hopefully it will go away at the later stage too.
Sometimes I feel the movements quite frequent and i wonder what is he doing inside.. Ya, I agree when I listen to music/song I like he will be more active. But what diff from others telling me is even when im hungry or super hungry, my baby wont be quiet down, he will move/kick more, maybe he is reminding me is time to eat!
Thanks for your advise Athes and Shiawase! I have checked with Gynae about the ab pain, he said should be fine as long as no bleeding. Lower Ab pain, backpain, nose bleeding, gum bleeding are fine too.
Athes, you are so active! I think i need to exercise more! I always feel very ''chuan'' after walking too much. I also feel like buying belly support belt, sometimes I feel that my stomach is so heavy, can you imagine we are in 2nd tri only..3rd tri more jialat! haha
Please share with me which gynae other mummies is seeing? Im seeing Lawrence Ang, but saw few bad feedback about him recently..I dont know whether I should continue seeing him or not.
Like you, I also feel "chuan" when I walk. But dont know what I can do to improve my fitness during pregnancy other than swimming. And lately, it's been raining and raining...
am new to this thread, just happened to this forum... My edd is 14 Feb 12, and will be delivering in Gleneagles. Any mommy here also considering Gleneagles?
your baby so cute ! With the relaxing posture..
Ya.. you should exercise more, be it a 30 mins walk or swim.. Is good for you and baby.. I was thinking of taking the Yoga class, but no kaki, so with my low determination, I think it will be a waste of money. So I decided to opt for my self exercise. For the belly support belt, you can check online.. Think is cheaper compare to those selling in the shops. But I simply can't find the thin and slim one.. Hmm..
Btw, I am seeing Dr. Lien from Mt Elizabert. So I have only two hospitals to choose, either Mt A or Mt E for labour. Hmm.. I dont't have much comment on him, sometimes find him very attentive, but after signing the package, I feel that he is not so attentive anymore. Hmm.. One thing I dont like is, his clinic does not equipped with the detail scan facilities. So I have to cross the road to Paragon for the scan and I can't get the report immediately.
I heard Thomson is good..
