hi, dear all,
I am a new mummy, just confirmed by gynae today that i am pregnant with 5 weeks. But still can't see baby's heartbeat, is this normal? My doctor at NUH said it is normal, he did not expect to see heartbeat for a 5 weeks old foetus, he asked me go back to see him in another 2 weeks.
Any advice for me? I am 48 kgs, am i too skinny? i try to eat more, drink more milk, hope it helps to make the foetus grows bigger.
Welcome here. . .
To see and hear heartbeat would be at 8 weeks.congrats to you!
the first 3 months will not have a massive change in weight, so dont need to worry, as long as you have enuff nutrients for both you and your baby, all will be fine.
Drink milk but not HL or those packet milk. Best is you buy those ENFAMUM etc. Congrats to your pregnancy. =)
Congrates to you!!
Yea week 5 cant see heart beat yet. you and i same situation. 5 weeks ago i went to my gynae n see no heart beat. then she also ask me go back 2 weeks later and then baby heart beat was seen!!!
Dont worry about your weight. my 1st baby i was so much worst weighin 41 kg when i was 8 week pregnant n i was severely underweight as my height is 165. now 2nd pregnancy abit better, week 7 i weigh 44kg! hee. so no worries about your weight. both baby n mummy will be healthy =D
