Hi, anyone knows if we can continue with IPL ( underarms) during pregnancy?
Hi mummies.. Just found out I'm having my 2nd baby last week..My girl is turning 1 in about a month's time :P the feeling really déjà vu
Based on last mensus date, my EDD shld be 24 Sept.. I had gone for a scan and gynae says there's visible heartbeat, although its still early to hear. Guess I'm about 8 weeks today.
This pregnancy is super different from the first. First one was MS-free, only minor heartburn towards the end and no water retention until the week before I gave birth.
This one...started to feel nausea and tired easily, so sleepy the whole day, not much appetite but have weird cravings and I have tendency to throw up after dinner.
Oh well...going for my 2nd scan in a week's time. Hope all is well, even though to be honest I wasn't too happy about the pregnancy earlier on. Now I just hope baby will be growing healthily.
I wanted to ask also...can I still go for tattoo of eyebrows? I queued on waiting list for almost half a year for it...then I found out I'm pregnant. =/
has any mummy done it?
hi littlepea, im a silent reader here but can't help but want to reach out to you. my EDD is 24 Sep too and my son is 10 months 2 weeks old! looking at your signature, i think he is just about a week younger than your girl. it's going to be tough isn't it, being pregnant and taking care of a baby. the only difference is my #2 was planned. hope to be friends and exchange pointers!
wow such a coincidence both our babies are about the same age!
Actually my girl's EDD was in April..but I had a fall and next day she came out. Haha
my #1 was totally unplanned. #2, semi-unplanned as well. My husband wanted and I was thinking we shldnt be so lucky but oops! Hahhh
I'm alrdy having nightmares thinking about how I'm going to have to cope with 2 of them.
Sure we shld be friends!! Too much in common not to be isn't it ^_<
how's your pregnancy so far?
Had a bit of spotting yesterday and freaked me out. Just came back from clinic luckily everything is good. Dr said I walked too much. Aren't we supposed to walk everyday? Anyways 5 days mc given and have to rest a lot...
littlepea, you had a fall! that must be so scary! great that both mummy and daughter are fine. how is baby girl now? crawling/cruising already?
my boy is generally slow in his physical development. now still only know how to leopard crawl! but he loves to pull to stand.
both #1 & #2 are planned. both successful on 2nd month of try. both times i thought it will take very long but got lucky.
can your girl sleep through the night? mine wakes up at least 3 times a night so i'm like a zombie now. headache on sleeping arrangement in future.
i'm having nausea, slightly better than #1. no vomitting but uncomfortable when evening comes. otherwise i'm ok. the tough part for me will start in 2nd trimester. i had pelvic pain in the last 3 weeks of my #1 pregnancy. given 3 weeks MC to rest and minimize walking. this condition will come back earlier in subsequent pregnancies. gynae warn maybe will be 4 months of pain. oh well...
who is your gynae? i'm also seeing my gynae next week, week 9 scan.
oh and you have different symptoms from last time, maybe this time round is a boy. one girl one boy, nice!
Tangerinez, ya it was quite scary coz after the fall, suddenly baby no kick or move for few hours. Then next thing I knw, contractions started n last thru the night until 7am then I admit to mt A. 4+pm then she come out.
She is trying to walk..I leave her in play yard, sometimes I see her balance with 1 hand support, then she let go n stand for 3 secs before falling on her butt. Each baby develop at different pace so dont't worry too much. If I compare to my friends's girl who shld be about your son's age, mine also considered slow. She can get down from bed herself steadily. LoL
my girl sleeps thru since 2nd month. I accidentally caused it..coz when she woke up, I gave pacifier. She spit out I put back. I did this for 3 consecutive nights..then 4th night she slept thru alrdy. But strange thing is my body clock is acting weird now. I always find myself awake at 3+, 5+am for no reason. Just open my eyes then I go back to sleep. I think the little one inside wake me up. Haha
Wah sounds like your 2nd trimester isn't the smoothest as with most mums. Hopefully this time it's easier. Fingers crossed!
my gynae is Dr Poon King Fu. He got clinic at Hougang and Mt A. My 1st was delivered by him. Very patient and soft spoken gynae who will share with you lots of things and answer all your qns no matter how ridiculous it may be.
Oh if this time is a boy, my mother in law shld be pleased.
@naangfa: thanks! i know whr's that! bought vitamins thr before
@littlepea: melody looks so feminine and pretty even at such a young age. her name suits her face!
@fairydust hey!!your scan is tomorrow! do update us ya!
had pink spotting just now..argh..hope it's just a once off thingy!
increase your duphanston or utrogestan to 3 times a day (instead of just 2 times a day) if there is cramps or spotting.
if spotting persist, then better try to go to your gynae immediately... but hope it is just a one off thing for you..
Take care !!!!!
I went for my scan yesterday, can see the head n hear the heart beat! Gynae only ask me continue folic acid.. Nothing else..
EDD 26-27 sept ..has anyone started buying any maternity wear?
My pants feel tight..

Littlepea: hey heyy! welcome and hello!!
faithmummy: thank Uu! it was just a one off thingy..probably walked too much yesterday! So it's ok if we take e hormone pills in e afternoon as well?coz now I take it once in e morning and another time at night..
i heard from my gynae if you felt the cramps or spotting, increase the dosage to one more time....
probably you can call up your gynae to check on how he advise...
thank god it is only a one off thing for you !!!
Faithmummy: heh yea...made me gan cheong! We have to contribute to Punggol population so really must take care..but thanks..will keep that in mind about e pills!;p
Mrsvistamio: I have not't started buying maternity clothes yet coz I lost quite a bit of weight since I conceived so I can still wear my usual attire..hehehe..where can we get nice and non-aunties ones do you know?
Dear mummies, how frequent do you go for check up? My gynae ask me come 4 week later, ie wk 12 then go back, is it normal ?
mrsvistamio: after my very first scan, I had to go back 2 weeks later (7wks),next one in 3 weeks (10wks) and e next one is in another 3 weeks (13wks).
I think e 12-13wks checkup/scan is a standard fixed one coz it is during checkup that ey will tell you whether everything is ok for baby coz ey will check for nasal bone and thickness of neck or other abnormalities. And if you had opted for the down syndrome test,ey will do e amnio test to cnfrm..
your first scan at 5th week? Can you see anything ? My first scan is wk8, 2nd scan is wk12
Has anyone done the oscar test? How long does it take for the results to be ready?
Today I had a terrible experience. My constipation is so bad I had to go to A&E. The whole thing is like a nightmare to me now, I'm glad it's over but I feel so terrible and sad and pain. Mummies please drink more water and eat more veggies and fruits.
StellaC , what happen to you? Why need go A&E due to constipation ?
I have been eating apple n berries everyday ..
mrsvistamio yea,at that time I didn't know how far I was with my pregnancy coz I cldn't remember when was my last menses so kinda panicked when all I saw was a sac and a black dot. Gynae just said I was less than 6 weeks. 2nd scan, heard e heartbeat and saw e fetus and it was estimated to be 7.2 weeks and I finally was told my EDD..
StellaC oh dear! it must have been a scary experience for you! *hugs* I dont't eat vege so I try to drink milk/milo/horlicks everyday and since its CNY, oranges! glad everything is ok for you though..rest well babe!
Thanks girls... It was horrifying. I had been having constipation.. But today was terrible. My bowels got stuck and no matter how I pushed I couldnt get them out. Called my gynae and he says go to A&E to get a fleet... Using the fleet was pain, later passing the stools was pain. I think i will be in pain for days. Later at home I kept crying and my mum even came over... Really feeling terrible with the experience.
