Hahaha. I got that very often, for both incident. I even ask my gynae to do urine test to see got infection not. But i hear is normal. If it is too much, can rinse through with salt water. But dont't do it too often as the white discharge is suppose to balance the bateria count. (Saw this in one of the pregnancy apps)
any idea if i buy avent / pigeon breast pump, the breastmilk storage bottles/bags need same brand? need buy how many?
if i only want store in fridge just 2-3 days ok to use packet? or less hassle with bottle?
im so confused.
haha! little j! no go also ok one. cos not much offers. and many things sold out each day i go. i went fri night and sunday afternoon. both days pumps etc sold til left 1-2 sets. diapers too.
and everyone pushing and knocking. me and some mummies had to constantly protect tummy.
*diapers price on par with malaysia prices btw pple*
also experiencing heavy discharge daily. but mine is transparent. but if monitor on pad, becomes yellowish if i dont change within an hour. doc say it "oxidises" not UTI.
he also say its very normal to have transparent/ white discharge.
as long no pain, or very heavy smell.
Told my gynae..he say everything ok and the baby is growing well..Originally Posted by spyvonne:794376
the vomiting is not like daily..every one/2 other day...just when i thought that my vomiting ends, it would comes with a vengeance..can have 2 to 3 times a day...
I heard that there are cases where the vomiting lasts for the whole pregnancy. ..hopefully I am not one of those special cases.
Having said that, I would tahan any symptoms or "side effects" as long as the baby is healthy ( I have two miscarriages last yr)...looking forward to 10 jun for my detailed scan...

awww! sorry to hear that! but you have a powerful womb also! dont worry!!!! im sure everything will be fine! some sinsehs say vomitting is a sign of healthy baby ! different pple diff symptoms. i never vomit before. but i headache everyday n gets worse. lets jia you!!!!!!
headache? i dont have much but the nose remained blocked at all times..jia you to all ladies here!
yes your right, we suffer now nvm. most impt the lil one is healthy and safe!
I just read whitish discharge is a sign of mucus plug releasing to prepare for labour...but i'm only 21 weeks! Is that a cause for concern?
oh i had 2 times profuse bleeding during 1st trimester. cos baby too active also. from tiny clot kick til become an open wound in the sAc. something lidat. lol
so i had injections that time to prevent miscarriage. then under duphaston.
now add one more ano-nifed (causes headaches). another medi is a pink one (causes heartburn/very fast hearttbeat, i tried but i prolly allergic so doc stopped).
premature can be due to womb, or baby too big. or what we do daily.
hence doctor want me bedrest/ dont bend/ dont do heavy chores. walk 15mins rest 5mins kind.
besides giving me supplements, he say nth to do to prevent premature.
if worried can buy doppler monitor baby heartbeat.
anyway a good-to-know for all mummies:
most gynaes say 2nd/3rd trimester onwards we need monitor baby kicks. at least 10 a day. (very hard for me.)
I have not't asked my gynae...will only be seeing him in another 2 weeks time...going for my FA scan this Wed...I'll ask the doc there about this...
I do feel constant kicking nowadays too....baby suddenly become very active..or maybe becos it's bigger now so I feel it more obviously....sometimes I feel as if there's a ninja inside me...but it's very difficult to count the kicks cos it's very random...and I've gotten so used to the kicking that I just ignore....
I read "What to Expect.." and it says that at this stage, the kicks do not probably matter yet...we need to monitor the kicks from late 2nd trimester or early 3rd trimester onwards....
lol i doubt i wil ever monitor. as long she kicks me i happy ! ya! ninja kicks . randomly just piak piak piak! dont even know how many kicks that is. haha
For kicks, not every baby the same. However, you would need to monitor like say 12 hrly period. .if the next day, there is a decrease of kicks in the 12hrly period, it would be good to call your gynae. .kiasu is better I think..heheOriginally Posted by spyvonne:794584
Oh I see....then you must rest like a queen until you give birth..Originally Posted by spyvonne:794582
Ooo. I have discharge too.... I didn't know discharge can be oxidized!
Tvh - I have decided to stop researching on every single symptom cuz I will be over-thinking and wondering is this it, am I facing this problem that problem, will this symptom mean this consequence, that consequence. My colleague who is preggers with her 2nd baby gave me this advice - stop researching and just enjoy the pregnancy cuz before i know it, it will be all over!! Instead of spending seconds researching, why not spend those second breathing and bonding with the child inside.
Oh gosh- I had severe constipation today. 40min in the loo... And even had blood in stools...Sorry if it is tmi... But argh... Gotta load up on even more fruits and veggie and water now.. And ask doc at next visit how (2 weeks later...).. Anyone else has suggestions? I'm also drinking prune juice once every 2 days too...
As for exercise - So far I hope my regime is ok. yoga is more stretching, pilates is using reformer but i use lightest resistance and swimming is just more blooping in water.
Doc hasn't told me to stop... But I guess common sense prevails. Like if feel any form of discomfort, to stop immediately. And I try to schedule on alternate days so I give my body a rest. My hubby did say I should cut down to 2 exercises per week...

I do agree with your colleague on that..but then, sometimes it is easier said than done especially it is your first kid..I realise that I am not so kan cheong for my dau...but the second one, dont know is it as age progresses, more and more kiasi..always worry here and there..but I do realise that thw more I look into symptoms, i make myself more kan cheong. So i am trying to be more laid back..Originally Posted by littlej:794619
Constipation? Possible to get stool softerners from the gynae?
Dont overexercise also. .need to do in moderation. .I actually dont do any exercise except walking 10 to 15 mins walk to the mrt stn..hehe
oh im the queen of constipation.. haha.. i drink prune juice everyday. (and still only go toilet every few days!)
doc did give softeners and some laxatives but its not good coz teaches the bowel to rely on the medication. best is drink more water, and fruit juice like prunes which naturally let the bowels move. no need to overdose on fibre coz the stool will bulk up and harder to come out.
and dont force! if 15 min cannot go, wait awhile until got strong feeling. or you can eat trigger foods- food that will make you feel like shitting. lol. for me its ice milo with full cream milk early in the morning. haha. sure got LS feeling. (but not always ).
i got phobia of shitting for awhile.. coz back when my placenta was lower, keep spotting whenever i pass motion. then it made my constipation worse
well constipation is one of the many pregnancy 'quirks' ! take care, stay very well hydrated!
im also guilty of Googling everything..makes me imagine the worst and its hard to control.. but am trying to limit my 'research' to just checking in here with you guys!
