    I called up the clinic Natalie recommended SSR - so yes they are able to do a detailed genetic scan which involves the heart, brain, facial features. And apparently it is very detailed and can tell if there is any anomaly. My colleague used this service as her Oscar results weren't good. The lady on the phone said I could do it if I want to.

    http://www.ssr.com.sg/education.htm#2

    I am wondering if I should go for this scan. Just to get peace of mind that all is ok. It costs sgd300. My hubby thinks I am crazy.

    Would you do if you were me?
    I would think that if your results are good, then you should not go for the scan...I think ppl who went for the scan are usually those whose results are not good but do not want to go thru invasive test..

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Oh thank you everyone for your feedback. I was in such a dilemma for the entire day. Couldn't focus on work. I even sent a half completed email to a client (and i thought i didnt send anything) and client reverted with "erm - I think there is more to this?". *faint*

    I mean, having read your feedback then a sudden realization dawned on me. I am being so ridiculous and dumb isnt it! Normal ppl out there is saying good liaoz still do what. and i am not trusting this lil' muffin that he/she is doing well and I am not trusting the big man up there too! I allowed for medical sciences to cloud my trusty instincts.

    Thank you thank you thank you. Words simply cannot convey the appreciation I have for all you ladies here. I mean without all your feedback I wouldn't have had that sudden realization. *throws baby dusty and big boobsy kisses to everyone*

    I know this sounds bimbotic but I never knew there is radiation involved in these scans?!? Oh my!!!

    Welcome sunnydale. We are all here learning and sharing.

    TVH, glad to know your Oscar scan result is good. Happy for you.

    Littlej, actually I also agree with TVH. But if this thing been bothering you too much you just go ahead at least you won't keep thinking about that.

    Haha littlej, actually ultrasound measures sound waves, I'm not sure if there is indeed a hint of radiation involved but best to avoid if can. Anyway if they can scan through your stomach to see your baby, it means the medical equipment used is quite strong so dont't increase the risk to yourself. Trust your sonographer, trust the results.

    Also, these advanced scans for reserved for ppl with subnormal prior scan results. So, if everybody wants to go for such scans too, that decreases the available appointment slots to those who really need it

    Harlow... and welcome, sunnydale307 (:

    @TVH, glad to know your oscar test is normal. Yippy!

    Just spoken to hubby about trying to concieve after the confinement. He said our next baby will be a sticky, healthy and beautiful one, I felt so relieved and confident that we will become pregnant in very short period of time. My family and in-law are very supportive too!

    Happy soul , happy to read a memorable experience from you on seeing the little bean!

    A question to ask: those actively trying to concieve , how you all doing your yearly Heath checks if trying to concieve
    means cannot do X-ray right?
    Im just wondering how long takes to conceive plus pregnancy it means got quite a long period of time dont't do Health scan X-ray l those right?

    just read through some webpages that says if you know you r going to tk xray, avoid trying to concieve that month.

    pregnant women definitely cannot take xrays.

    I think it depends on where is the location of the x-ray. for my third which end in miscarriage, I took foot x-ray and the gynae say its okay

    Alamak! Happy belated birthday happysoul

    Littlej, glad that you realised everything will be a-ok! And congrats on healthy growing baby too TVH!

    Quincy, since you are CD12 now, and you have been ahem "talking horney"... Looks like you might be well on your way to O ! For me, hubby and I both realised that our horniness increases during my ovulation week, and actually even AF due week.. hahaha... I'm now on CD8 with see-sawing bbt..

    Hahaha the tune of "I'm horny, horny horny horny" is a song I would like to dedicate to quincy

    Ebichan - best to ask the doc. For me, I did a lung \ heart x-ray whilst trying to concieve but wasn't successful. Before my bfp I also did a hsg. Not sure if it had any effects and I wonder if the hsg helped in the bfp, but since doc gave an all clear I assume it would be ok.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    last night just asked hubby to "clear stock".
    we didnt go doggy because hubby worry his gun might lose power.
    so we just stick to 1 position.
    anyone of your hubbies in late 30s-40?

    Hello quincy1986, I think it's ok! Was it the missionary position? It's actually one of the best positions to help you to conceive! Next time do try out this method: Put a pillow right under your rear-end once you finish. This allows for the maximum amount of semen to enter the cervix. Hope this information will help =)

    Good luck to you and your husband!
