    So that means if I delivery in gleneagles, I need to have lots of cash in case some emergency happen...
    Kandang Kerbau Hospital is like that also..however, I know that Thomson Medical Center got to settle bill before you can discharged

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Happilymarried - my old man said just choose one alternative - dr Paul tseng or dr Benjamin Tham as dr tseng's appt is on wed and dr tham's appt is on fri. He said if we comfy with the alternative then just need to decide to go with alternative doc or take the plunge with doc chan. and he said he makes the decision this time cuz i make bad decisions on docs (think here think there think so long the last time round and in the end doc chan going on vacation)... . then he was like one baby so many docs... Oops.

    Heheheh. So now I am garnering research materials. Any tips lemme know ok!

    Wahahaha I should charge for the advice on the various docs . Hahahhaa.

    Ya glen e's billing is as such. My friend paid $16k upfront the last time as she had emergency c-sect and a couple of complications too.

    Really need to choose the hospital with care (which is also another factor on choosing a gynae) - because *touch wood* if there are any complications with the baby... private hospitals also more ex - unless the pediatrician has an alternative hospital then can request to go to the other hospital instead. dont't forget your baby is tied to the mother's ward type.

    So one friend of mine, because she knew she will have a difficult pregnancy - her gynae advised her to switch docs and she switched to nuh under a different doc. She Originally planned to give birth at glen e or mt e. She chose a 4 bedder ward at nuh. She was hospitalized for a month prior to the birth and Her baby was born pre mature and had to be in nicu - but i think she paid less than $9k in total.

    For delivery, I still prefer Kandang Kerbau Hospital. I always think Kandang Kerbau Hospital is best equipped when it comes to complications. (Or am I wrong? I seem to have this notion all along). But also have to see how to work within my ideal gynae + ideal delivery hospital. Why life's choice are so hard sometimes?

    Hi. MTBs which hospital are you all delivering? I have not't book hospital yet. Is it too late?

    I m quite afraid of premature. I read online ppl even need to sell house cos baby premature and cost them around 120k.

    Happily married.. FBI is add 140 for two year. Let me go home and check the brochure. Basically 5% for participating gynaes , PDS etc. 100$ off for 1 bedder I think.

    Wow.. I so tired to work these days. Can't sleep well at night cos my baby keep kicking and also backache... That day I count... My baby kick 76 times in 5 mins... She still kicking.. I stop cos too tired to count.. I wish I can quit job and rest until after give birth..

    oh no. next is my turn (maybe). my hubby also soldiers no good. i can't believe i might have to go through ivf.
    i saw so many women so poor thing going through ivf.
    many can barely make it to work after some of the procedures.

    Poohy, could it be the traditional chinese medicine powder? Last time mine was so bad that I asked Dr Wu if she has any cream for my pimply face. Hee she said she doesnt dispense. I went to my GP then to get topical medicine.

    Can I ask if your hubby is also on the medicine from Dr Wu?

    Thelay: I am a private patient at NUH under Dr Su Lin Lin. Nearest to my place.

    I also suddenly lost my energy while grocery shopping past weekend. Had to go find a bench to sit down and left hubby in queue. Hahaha. Think its the 3rd tri fatigue starting?

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Poohy: why the doc so fast suggest ivf? Its only your hubby soldiers right? Give him walnuts daily. Is he willing to go for traditional chinese medicine for his soildiers? My traditional chinese medicine did help my hubby on his.. n I really saw the diff in report after 3 mths. Ivf will be a very hectic cycle especially for you. I think since doc say your hubby soildiers r not so well perform then should be him seeing some.traditional chinese medicine or maybe gynae to better boost his sperms. Unless the ivf you go through does not require you to jab yourself as all the jab will cause a very haywire to your mensus cycle n hormones.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    qnissim- actually we been procrastinating ivf ever since we saw her 4 years ago. After the initial tests done, she already say we should go straight to ivf but we didnt want and got lucky with iui. Now we tried iui again and it didnt work...she say we are older and less responsive PLUS the first pregnancy was pure luck.hahahaha...

    and gynae did suggest another method that doesnt require injection but she said that method only can get 1-2 eggs and may not even be good eggs. so the chances also not high.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Wah so many things to read!!
    Missy is giving Team Pink or Blue update tommorow?

    Dragontail will be learning how to self administer injections ? What is the proper term called? Is it scary to self administer? Is this related to IUI?
    I wonder what determines whch course to take? whether good candidate for IUI or others?
    Also, at what age is most likely good to consider these?

    Shez! Thats crazy , 10K pay upfront, who has this kind of money in wallet one?
    But but Im glad you are done with the polyps removal! How do you feel?
    Now you have brand new system to work with and fantastic chance of BFP!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    poohy: dont know . I thought the older ladies should get jump-started since we have not much time to waste trying waiting around. I give myself another 3 more cycles.
    WIll O in next few days. I will try harder.

    What are your thoughts Poohy? What is your plan of action?
