    gnissim23 & happilymarried: actually previously i also wanted to buy a baby doppler but i read online they say not good because according to review, its very hard to find the baby heart beat as every sound detected can be reflected like baby heart beat. and i read they say the doppler actually emit a sound wave into the tummy so not sure if its safe to use often?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    i'm super duper ultra sleepy too. *yawn*

    hahaha - c'mon ppl - share your baby p*rn pix! whahahha! happilymarried - waiting anxiously to see yours too. hiaks hiaks.

    dragontail - ya better to see earlier than later. and can gauge follicle size. ahahha remember doc said your 'estimation' based on FF may not be accurate so dont't be so sure you will O on CD18 :P

    gnissim - oscar consists of the scan + triple blood test. The scan is something which Dr Chan can also do for you (since his machines are super advanced) cuz it's measuring the neck measurement/fluid plus nose. and the other measurements like fetal length, leg etc. Because when I went to see Dr Chan - he did exactly the same scan, the triple blood test will give you the results. So typically - they combine the scan and the blood test results to give you the probability. And of course adding your age. You're only 23 right? So I think still young. And yes agree with dragontail - age pulls you down. My best friend who had her first kid at 28 and second kid at 31 - her oscar results went down dramatically - from 1:20000+ to 1:2000. That's why Oscar is never as accurate cuz they put in the age factor too.

    gnissim - oh ya .. with dr chan - just really treat him as a grandpa - be respectful. actually for me - i treat my gynaes as elders - like they are my grandfather. cuz y'know - they know so much more and so much more experienced and so much older as well. not like GPs - those young punks these days.

    happilymarried - Sorry for bringing up things you dont't wanna hear. Now I understand why you can't do maternit21. Are you going for amnio then? Or just triple test and detailed scan?

    oh - my suggestion is not to get a doppler. honestly, why add additional stress and dont know if good or not also. like some people say should get the babyplus thingy but in wong boi boi class - she said no good. some people also say should shine torch light at tummy but wong boi boi also said no good. it's like police shining torch light at criminal - who would like it. for me - take each day as it comes, yes feels anxious but well need to have faith that baby is fighting there to grow. i mean, if cannot hear then how - immediately chiong to see doc? cannot be chionging for full 40 weeks right (unless really got a lot of time and $$ to spend)... like even now - i can feel baby's movements but that doesn't mean i will get gan chiong everytime i cannot feel any movement.

    hahahaa i like to think all these 'waiting' teaches us patience and to be more chill.. which are qualities every mother needs right..

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Happilymarried: heh I still cant decide. Gmarket is selling. Mothercare already never carry this item . indeed doppler cannot be used often. Cant use everyday too.

    Missa: the doppler cant be use often. N when you use time you cant use for long. Prolly just less then a minute ? Many porn pic coming here. Lol.

    Littlej: oooo. Now I have a much clearer picture. Hahahaha. Ya I saw dr chan measurint the not fluid n neck . Tts when I ask him is this oscar scan. then ya you know the whole story. Lol. Hmmm.. but one weird thing im having is I dont have constipation but I will tend to have tummy ache always n loose bowels. :/ btw when did you start feel the baby kick?

    missA - heehee so cute!!! baby boys r so cute.. there is something to see see.. haha..

    gnissim - you r 23?! wow at age 23.. I was still far far far away from planning a baby! no wonder doc didnt insist that you do oscar test? actually I feel oscar isnt that accurate at all.. especially with the age factor.. cuz as long as the mummy to be keeps healthy.. can still have a smooth pregnancy n healthy bouncy baby...

    littlej - no worries ! I think about it everyday anyway.. so saying it out is another form if thinking im past the tears part. becuz I plan to have no.2. I strongly believe twin b will come back to us. as what my silly hubby always says.... twin b will come back better healthier n stronger... kinda like a version 2.0!? in my emo state.. I keep thinking he's such an idiot for saying very 2.0! haha... I dont plan to do amnio... unless doc suggests I consider it for a valid reason.. then I will think about it...

    okay... today is 1 of those days I dont feel pregnant at all.... yesterday hunger pangs... today no appetite at all... so extreme n so weird.... sigh... especially after a loss.. my mind is going crazy....

    littlej & tvh - I fully agree need to know who exactly is the cover doc.. there is no time for a proper n leisurely "hello nice to meet you for the first time delivering doc".... really cannot... you already have pain n 101 things on your mind at that time....

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    MissA, oh baby baby! Was the little fellow sleeping or playing when the scanning was done?

    littlej, hahah ya I keep saying "I know I am ovulating on CD18". Better dont let Dr Chew hear this line again, especially after how he had replied you. Kaka.

    gnissim, you are 23 only? Are you the youngest here??

    happilymarried, ooooh sorry about me being insensitive earlier. What was I thinking. And I think the version 2.0 is kinda cute. Yeah, 3 exciting updates for next week, for now.

    wantonmee, it's thurs and hubby mugging school work. I think I'm just going to dig out some polishes and do fresh nail arts.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    happilymarried, I love you

    Oh can you share what am I to expect at the follicle scan? Oh is it through transvaginal or abdominal scan? What's the average norm size I should see few days before I ovulate? So the scan is at my ovaries is it? So usually can only see one follicle at just one of the ovary? My god when I'm asking all these questions I find myself having zero knowledge on this.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    happilymarried and dragontail: im not 23 .. 23 is last last yr. gg to 25 end of this year already. i am the kind that i wish to have kids younger then they grow up i dont need think so much. lol. anyway my hubby old man. so ya . ok back to the scan of follicle. i have done once before. mine is vaginal one. (when you r doing try to ask doc if your uterus is retroverted or anteverted). so there will be left and right ovary. both side you will see eggs. but there will only be one dominant follicle. (means either on one side, left or right, there will be one follicle very much bigger than the others. that is the follicle that will produce n rupture into egg when mature. if i never remember wrongly, the follicle size will be about 24mm plus minus when maturity -->> i dont really remember. hee. so your doc will measure the current, then he will estimate like one day grow 2mm, then roughly tell you frm there when will you ovulate. (somehow i find not very accurate also as some may mature at bigger size and some a smaller size, so he will still ask you OPK for exact one).

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Gnissim - you are only 25?!? Aunty here is exactly 10 years older than you. Oh my. I had a mix of constipation and loose stools in my first trimester. I suspected it was because of the laxative med that dr chew gave me. So I cannot really comment on the poo part.

    Wantonmee - constipation - I can really constipation manz. Anyway fruits help. And prune juice. But i think my body immune to these already. And oh I recently found another secret! Which is yoghurt and muesli!!! But hahaha yoghurt must be Paul's yoghurt which is not very nice... Or Meiji natural yoghurt. If I have that for breakfast confirm within 2 hours hello easy poo poo. Happiness. Bliss. Hahaha. Tried and tested 3 times. Other brands dont't work.

    Dragontail - usually vaginal scan to say hello to the follicles. I dont't know if dr chew will provide exact measurements. Dr chan did provide exact measurements.

    My old man working. And I just tabao food... Prob going for a short walk, shower then have dinner with kindle and you folks for company =)

    Next week is an egg-citing week for Dragontail and shez!!!!

    Gnissim: girl so young! I was asked very directly before during an interview. "Are you planning for a kid?" Really put me off. Plan dont't plan..accidents do happen right? Sad to say some companies are really shrewd. sigh...

    dragontail - the scan will be vaginal scan. you may see a few smaller sized follicles together with 1 dominant one from one side (your right overy will be labeled as left overy by doc - I used to find that confusing..haha). I hope you have 2 dominant follicles!

    with regards to follicle size, it depends on each I dividual's body I guess. I read online some forums from states.. for some women its 20mm & above. for me, it was usually around 18mm. everyday til O date the dominant follicle will grow around 1-2mm also depending on your body.

    doc will also scan your uterus.. see for any polyps.. measure lining thickness & shape (whether its triple stripe look - the triple stripe lining is the best for implantation). my lining was my weakest link.. always hovering around 7-8mm only. ideal should be 12-14mm or even 16mm I guess..

    oh another med that doc gave me that I thought was super good was baby aspirin! it helped with increasing blood flow to the uterus!

    shez - excited for you too!

    my family gp once said... as long as got eggs... sure can get pregnant!

    gnissim - must try to have proper dinner.. your hubby is hard at work to earn $. its also easier to baby talk freely to your baby when he is not around right? did you tell gynae about your headaches?
