Paige, i am currently 5 weeks and 3 days. you?
Hi all.... I just discovered I'm 5+weeks after trying to concieve for more than a year ..... Went to see a gynae in orchard area but wasn't very comfy with him.
So i decided to switch to Dr Benjamin Tham & will be seeing him in 2weeks time. Heard many good reviews about him. Any of you under his care at the moment??
Haha paige.. i know the anxiety too.. just like you want to see if your baby is safe in your tummy.
Hi wishnhope! I heard dr tham is good too. But i not with him.
Hi paige, i will be visiting Dr Tham tml for my 1st appt. =)
Nowadays eat what also not nice....so bloated. sianz...
Congrats congrats new mummies to be.
My nausea feeling is suddenly gone and I can actually eat very well now.
Having said that, although my sinseh says dont worry about disappearance of symptoms, I can't help thinking of the bad side Hope Wed comes quickly for the first scan.
Anyone of you know, when the gynae scan for baby heartbeat. How is the procedure like? Just a normal scan can detect already? Or ?
I'm going tomorrow, pray hard!
If you're very early, 5week or less thereabout, you'll need a transvaginal scan. Beyond that, the normal scan on your tummy should do the work. It's a fast procedure and get ready for a tissue
Most importantly, dont clear your bladder before the appt. Drink more water before you go in. You need the fluid there for the scan be to able to spot the baby better.
Hi Dragontail, thanks! This is my second appointment and I'm 7 weeks now, I thought to detect the heartbeat need transvaginal scan. Thanks so much to ease my worried. =)
Looking forward tomorrow!
Hi mummies...are you all starting to use stretch mark cream/oil? Any recommendation?
I intend to start when I'm on 4 week. But i ask the gynae, he stare at me like I'm too kiasu and reminded me I'm under weight. Maybe I will start using it on 2nd trimester ..
Mamalve, update after your scan tomorrow k!
Yes, the gynae did share before that if we dont have appetite to eat, just drink more milk/milo/horlick and munch light stuff. Our appetite will come back eventually.
My last pregnancy I very kiasu I started apply cream/oil at week 6. I will be starting soon after my appt this wed (6wks+).
If you read at instructionns on stretch mark cream. They also recommend using during 2nd trimester onwards..
Any mummies travelling or have travelled during 1st trimester?
Yes usually people say 2nd trime then start the cream. But the last time I saw my tummy popped out so much during 1st trime I scared. I felt my skin was starting to pull so I thought I rather be more kiasu and I didnt mind to spend the time to start massaging at 6weeks onwards.
I did ask my hubby and he said better dont travel (we had a MC recently so I feel now he's more careful with things around me). Actually we just went to Msia yesterday for a one day trip. Family thingy and we chartered a whole bus. Just a day trip so near what could be wrong right. But after yesterday, I wont do it again (at least not by coach) because at some roads they were so bumpy few of us were sent flying off our seats a few times. I was so worried and my M-I-L kept coming to me and asked if I was alright.
Sadly singapore only sells the small bottle at around $15 for 120ml I think.
Australia sells the bigger bottle for about AUD$30++
Will probably start applying soon since my tummy is so bloated that it has a bulge....
I alternate between clarins tonic oil and motherhood anti-stretch mark cream, every other day. They both have good reviews. The latter is inexpensive too.
I'm back from checkup!! Everything is good! Managed to listen to baby heartbeat!! Super fast n it's amazing! Baby heartbeat on 7week2d are 150bpm. Hehe.. <3
Happy happy happy! I'm so happy for you.
Can you spread me some lucky dust? mine is tomorrow.
Haha! Luckytail dont worry. Talk to your baby, that's what I did. Hahaha..
My nausea also gone today!! Happy! Maybe our due date quite close.
I'm finally discharging from hospital today! So happy ^^
Just did the scan, i'm 6w5d now. Heartbeat is 130bpm. Thankful that baby is growing well despite my condition.
Wish all mommies good health!!
MamaLve, thank you! I pray for tomorrow It's a relief to hear your nausea is gone too. Or maybe you're just too happy to feel anything! Hehe. Of course I hope we are really nausea-free for rest of next few months. So did your gynae say when's your EDD?
ysirene, oh my I'm so glad to hear this good news from you. You're very blessed. Take good care too ya.
Hi All, first time mummy also....my baby is now around 7 weeks. I am on a plump side...but my tummy is already starting to show and I feel nausas but not pukey. Not sure if any of you have such feeling also?
My taste bud seems to also changing. Its like i am begining to dont prefer the stuff that i usually eat but my taste butt seems to go towards what my hubby likes to eat. My hubby is saying that baby is more like him...any of you have such experience?
