best of luck hun you'll do fine and for sure the baby, just think this test is best for you and to your bundle of joy, i myself is schedule for OSCAR tomorrow a bit scared cos i hate seeing blood, scan is fine though they said is a bit uncomfy too. cheers!
off topic info: fiance and I found out that it's more cheaper to buy baby stuffs online like breast pump, strollers, sterilizers, milk bottle etc.. as long its below 400 dollars the government wont tax you and since our due date is still far im considering to buy 1 by 1 online. I wont get clothes tho cos i wanna touch if its soft enough for my new born. just fyi mummies no need to follow me, just do whats convenient for you!
mflee i dont know about the amniocentesis test. personally i've taken the oscar test 2 weeks ago. wish all will go well for you~ all the best for you and your baby!
lizzy wow thanks for sharing! ya i've been looking on gmarket for dream genii and maternity leggings etc... which websites do you see pumps, strollers and stuff? maybe we can share share =)
i've bought from babymallonline.com before for sister In law's son... the one-pc bodysuits are affordable and very good material. =)

you can search for more brands if you are familiar with them, what i do is i go Paragon (first year shop) and look at the thing im planning to buy for my baby then compare the price online and make a checklist to order it online, i havent order online as my tummy is still small but ill start once i reach 6 months i have lists of the items i wanna buy brand new (like breast pump and baby bottles) and items that is fine to buy 2nd handed ( like baby walkie talkie, bath tub etc) hope this helps,, and we still have more months to share ideas!
lizzy thanks for sharing!
regenz, my oscar result is low risk and i'm fine with that. do you mind me asking, how old are you? i'm 32... i guess still ok bah...
I am 29 this year . The dear son cases which my friends mentioned are mothers below 30. Frankly they scared me quite a bit. But my hubby is very confident somehow. I worry but i also think amino is not necessary for me too. Fingers crossed!
was browsing one website posted by lizzy. Out of point but i think the bags are so cute !
hee ya the bags are so cute! i'm browsing the sites now too i saw the medela freestyle pump which i am super into... that time we went ktv, my friend even pump while at ktv... super portable... but i see the packages have different size super shields... like M, L, XL... how do we know what size to get?

me again (am i the only person talking here? lol)
still on MC, i think gg to nearby gynae to walk in and scan... to have peace of mind... really worried sick for my baby since i've been sick for so long, and cough so much and so hard that my whole body including my tummy aching madly.
told my pregnant friend to come to mummysg but she says this forum too slow moving... haha... but i find sgmotherhood too fast moving and i very lost inside, so still prefer here. anyway i usually also come once in two-three days unless weekend or like now, on MC. boo.
hi morning felicity, you are not alone.
I like read the forum but seldom post reply.
Yesterday went for check up and see my baby moving a lot, doctor said very active baby.
Oscar test will be done next Tuesday, hopefully is low risk because I do not want to do the amnio test.
Wonder why Oscar will give false alarm???
Im gonna do Oscar today 11am , my doctor explained to me that if you are high risk doesnt mean that there's something wrong with the baby, it could be the fact about your age, your HCG level etc.. he told me if i done the test and he called me i dont't have to panic and such. I done the Oscar with 2nd pregnancy and wasnt worried at all cos i was only 22 way then but now im 28 im a bit worried to be honest but i read that as long as there's no history and your not above 35 you have low risk.Oscar test will be done next Tuesday, hopefully is low risk because I do not want to do the amnio test.
Wonder why Oscar will give false alarm???
Hi Lizzy, if high risk sure doc will advise to go for amnio test right?
I am ald 33... first preg was 29 wihtout oscar test
done with my test and phewww cant belive they took so many blood off me lol! my not scan was fast cos baby is in good position but i might go back for scan again cos baby still small and they couldnt get right measurement. gonna wait for th edoctor decision and blood test, if blood test is fie i might not have to
hi Juan and lizzy!
i also dont know why oscar test will false alarm =/ but just happy that mine is low risk. but just now the gynae i see ask me about detailed result i not sure, cos they only called and say low risk, i'm seeing Dr Tham only next Friday to go thru the results.
spent $178++ to have a peace of mind... went to a nearby gynae, Dr Chen Chern Yi, to have a scan done. baby is well and quite active, she says baby is dancing... keke... now 10.8cm already. she gave me more lozenges, more cough syrup, vit C pills and 3 more days of MC cos i still cannot talk and should rest more. but i think i will go back to sch, tomorrow got other programme so not teaching, so should be ok, not strenuous. already on 2 days MC ... dont want to skip work so much =/
Hi Felicity, looks like you are constantly having quite a tough time. Hope you get well soon and stay healthy once you recover.
Hi Lizzy, 28 should still be in the ideal age category. dont't worry too much. Remember Happy Mummy, Happy Baby.
I just acompanied my wife for the Oscar scan at Thomson Medical Center. Oh my, we waited like 3 hours for our turn. I almost flared up.
However upon seeing the ultrasound scan of my child everything was at peace. He/She has 1 hand behind the head and the other was rubbing his/her nose during the scan. His/Her feet slightly crossed in a very relaxed manner, "Kiao Ka" - in Hokkien. Like a image of someone lying on the beach relaxing. Sure knows how to enjoy himself/herself hur.

I just went for my gynae appt yesterday! baby very active, dancing inside.. now 5cm @ 11 weeks! So happy to see such a cute little bean! Hmm did some assessment and also they drew afew tubes of blood from me for tests. The bill together with the multivits, calcium and fish oil amounted to $500+! Big hole in pocket! Had to console myself that it's all for my baby.
I have been having stomachache every few days .. and stitches when i walk. On sun night i had stitches even when i was trying to sleep on bed, had to hold my left side of abdomen to sleep. Even breathing causes the stitch to hurt.. Wonder if these stitches are common...
I'm still getting nausea and it comes in an instant! Suddenly choked as i walked to the car or choke when driving halfway...gynae told me mine may last till 14 weeks... i hope morning sickness will leave me asap!
Jiayou all mums! We'll press through together!
Thanks Radical! doc says when pregnant women fall sick, take longer to get well... i'm having a hard to to recover now. =/ do take good care of your wife! well i'm sure you will =) my hubby this month away for work so i'll be on my own totally. next week my cousin will accompany me for gynae check.
i keep coughing until i will choke and gag and want to vomit. sigh. really having a hard time and it's not because of the baby! and i guess maybe cos of i'm sick, totally no appetite for anything in these 2 days. i've been surviving on wholemeal bread with cheese all day and night... i can finish one loaf in a day now ><
Nausea coming back today.. sign
Hi Mummies.. have not been logging in recently cos been busy with work.. Seems like everyone has gone for their Oscar test already.. It's gonna be my turn this Friday but hubby's not going with me cos he can't take time off.. Boo.. Hope the test will go ok this Friday!
My nausea been getting worse these few days too.. Sobz.. Isn't it supposed to get better? And constipation is killing me too.. Anybody has any remedy?
