Pray that all babies are healthy and make it into this world soundly into our arms..
Which Dr are you seeing?
Thank You, I will be going for my first check up on the 21st..
that will be my 5th wk
I'm seeing Dr Benjamin tham from Thomson Medical Center. Looks 40+ to me, change Gynac from my first for better luck hehee
Btw, why do they count baby weeks from our last Menses date. I find not accurate . I did digital test kit, it says 2-3weeks.but Dr will count from LmP so become 5weeks is .
When we have menses, no egg to fertilized. Ovulation only come like 2 weeks after menses over, baby then can form.
that's just the way they count.. The very cycle including the last mense as the beginning, maybe coz it's hard to gauge the conception date ..
so if you see those pregnancy week-by-week, the 1st week is always the menses..
as for better accuracy of EDD, will have to wait till baby is older abit, thn they can gauge from the size and development ..
ohh i see. ya, my test kit did ask me add one 2 more weeks but i just feel like why must add? hahaa me stubborn ..
but if that how dr calculate, then no choice.
today keep having a bitter taste in mouth, want to puke feeling. Got strong craving for MacDonald french fries! more salt somemore !!
*shake head .. unhealthy craving... bad mama
Hi, I am new here and I just checked with 3 test kits toconfirm our suspicions and I am pregnant and seek for GP confirmation. But I am also quite doubtful about the EDD. And because it's just the initial stage is it possible to have a little baby bump now or it might be due go gas/bloatedness? Now I feel uncomfortable wearing a belt but dono is it cos of baby. Can you all share w me if you also have similar issue?
EDD given by a GP or initially by a gynae is based on your LMP.. For more accurate one, would have to wait till baby is slightly older thn judge base on it's size.. Variable to change throughout early trimester but shouldn't differ far.. It's not very important coz most babies doesn't follow their EDD to comes out into the world.. Some earlier, some overdue..
Thanks amulet for that. If is stomach bloatedness, will it harm the baby and shld I see the gynae soon? Is it common to have bloatedness for first time mommy? I am excited about the baby but also worried. EDD is not that impt to me, just that we are both curious of how to calculate it. Sometimes I will also wonder if I am really pregnant. Because it feels so miracle. I have acne outbreaks, body has rashes, back aching, mouth ulcers all these. Are all these symptoms common? I am quite worried actually.
start taking some folic acids while you make your choice of gynae..
EDD is calculated 40 weeks from the week of your last menses..
Take care! :
i just tested for BFP last wednesday and did a BHCG test at my gynae's who confirmed I was at 4 weeks. I am in my 5th week today.
Just wanted to ask if you all experience any symptoms? I am having not much symptoms other than slight cramping at my lower ab and lower backache and feeling sleepy very early. I have had no morning sickness whatsoever. As this is my first pregnancy, I'm kinda worried about the lack of symptoms. I also do not feel pregnant, I do not have constipation either, in fact, I keep having this diarrhoea (sorry tmi) feeling after I eat.
My first scan with my gynae won't be until march, which I would be at 9 weeks then. Until then, I'm a nervous wreck
It could be too early for you to experience much symptoms yet.. But your signs like backache, slight cramps, fatigue, frequent bowel movement are actually symptoms as well!
Same as you, I dont't get constipated.. Instead, I get diarrhea.. That is one of the first sign that gives me a strong gut feeling that I could be pregnant coz I was like this as well for my last pregnancy..
morning sickness can take later to kick in.. My first pregnancy MS only kicks in in the late 5th week..
for my current one, initially also no MS.. But as the pregnancy progresses, the feeling of nauseousness kicks in stronger, especially if I'm hungry and in a movig vehicle that keeps braking..
Anyone was prescribed Duphaston by your gynae? I am wondering what this is for. I didn't have a chance to ask my gynae as he prescribed for me right after my blood test.
Duphaston is actually progesterone pills to help support your pregnancy.
better take it dilligently... it is like an tai yao....
Oooohhhh......I didn't know.....
@TVH: I was also prescribed with some Duphaston pills by my gynae, to be taken for 2 weeks before my 2nd check-up this Thursday. I googled and found out that it is actually to stabilize your womb for implantation. Weirdly, my gynae told me to take it only when I have cramps but I continued taking it twice daily..hehe..
I wasn't asked to do any blood tests for my first check-up, is this normal?
Oh my blood test was just to test HCG level to confirm I am indeed pregnant..
Congrats Ladies / moms-to-be.
im new here! today just saw a faint line in my preg test kit. period late for 1 week. i've yet to do get a BHCG test !! lol!!
you guys are reali fast!
Haha I just want to make sure. Usually blood test is more accurate than urine. Cos I couldn't believe I got a BFP, so I asked my gynae to arrange for a BHCG test to confirm. That's when you will know roughly how far along you are in your pregnancy too..
Cos might be too small to scan for anything. I also dont't know. I only asked for a HCG test to confirm.
