    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I was actually hunting for a 3 room flat under single scheme when I hit 35 (although I was part-tor-ing with my hubby, then boyfriend, I wasnt thinking of marrying. I just wanted to own a property of my own then). It felt so long that I finally hit 35... but I think god had a path carved for me. I saw few resale units and I finally found this lovely beautiful 100% moved-in 3 room hdb flat. There were a handful of interested buyers. I woke up that morning and called my agent "ok yes. I want that house. I will pay $40k COV". What was I thinking??!! I seriously was ready to pay that hard earned money. That was crazy (both the property market and my head). But then she told me too late. Someone else paid $42k cash earlier that morning. Then I thought maybe god didnt want me to be kuku and buy a expensive house at that time (property super boom then).

    What I am trying to say is at this era, people are marrying later and later. To wait till 35 to be eligibile for a hdb flat under single scheme is a joke. I know the government mindset is to give priority to family nucleus. But times have changed. The ethos has certainly evolved with time. Being single can be a choice (or not. Doesnt matter here). It's a real situation and this group's concerns shouldnt be omitted conveniently.

    the doc said that was quite common, he even has 1st tri pregnant patients who collapse after they leave the clinic.
    He also told me that because of nausea and bad sickness, some mothers to be ask to terminate the pregnancy because they can't tahan...I was in such shock when i heard that...

    littlej, I also dont't understand why single mothers cannot have full access and similar privileges than married mothers ! I actually find this ridiculous and very remote. It's like when you want to buy a hub flat, you have to be married or else nada...or you have to wait after 35 and even then, there are some other restrictions.
    The majority of my overseas friends who have kids, got married only after the child was born, when its not my single friends who bring their child up alone. So discriminating and thought controlling...
    I fainted once during my first trimester. .luckily everything is okay..

    I would usually keep a small plastic in my bag so that I could vomit in the plastic bag if a toilet is not in sight. My ms could be few times a day, stop for 1 day or 2 then the whole process will start again..I still has bouts of ms/queasyness now even though I am 31 wks...

    quincy - wa, your hubby is good!

    wantonmee - single mums are not entitled to baby bonus as well as the cash gift (Baby Bonus). single mums are also not entitled to 4 months maternity, only 2 months maternity leave. i hope your friend is ok.

    Dragontail...can I snatch the chicken thigh from you too.. I only eat drumstick, thigh and wing. Same for duck.. The rest dont't like..

    Today very funny on MRT.. One uncle run pass me to take the priority seat.. Then I take seat another side and one aunty ask me to give up seat for her Fri. I stand up for her as granny look old. They saw my bump and pai seh.. Lol..

    Went to glene hospital tour. Rooms and ambience wise, I prefer Thomson. Glene give me hospital feeling. Not sure cos every time I went there is to visit who are hospitalised.

    But ask Gynae and Gynae prefer glene as nearer for her. Thinking what to choose.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    happilymarried - i go to colorwash @ mandarin gallery. ColorWash - Outlet locations so far they have done a good job for my bags. no damage

    hello yukki - welcome! which docs are you seeing?

    i'm going to meet dr ben tham tomorrow! oh gosh - i feel a little silly - looking like a hippo and seeing a new doc.

    thelay - did you read today's mind & body - there's an article on breast-feeding and which hospitals have been accredited with some breast-feeding certification. NUH is the very first one, and hospitals like Thomson Medical Center, Mt A, Kandang Kerbau Hospital are also gearing towards that. I dont't recall the article making mention of Glen E. Also did some research and came across this - WHO certified

    I dont't know if this is important to you. But perhaps this might help in your hospital selection.

    Welcome yukki. So may I ask what did your dr and sinseh say about the situation so far? Has your hubby ever been checked too?

    Littlej, maybe Dr Tham is "handsome & sexy"? Hee. Hope he is the perfect fit for the 3 of you! Update after your visit.

    Tomorrow have to check check my follies again. I am hoping this jabbing thing be over soon. Such a chore. Argh. Things we do for trying to concieve.

    Hi Angel, Poohy

    Im also at 2WW.
    Actually i read not poss to have preggy symptoms right? at 2 WW.

    I've not gotten any PMS symptoms 1st week of 2 WW .
    Maybe because I restarted Conceive Well last month so my breasts were really tender.
    This month not yet.

    6 more days countdown... fingers crossed

    Yukki
    Welcome, welcome! I have not yet consulted any traditional chinese medicine or Fertility doctor as I was told to try some more months.

    What sort of protocol have you done up to now, eg. BBT, Ovulation Predictor Kit etc?

    Happilymarried, I think today not so much ewcm. Just a little. But er...these few days feel very easily turn on. Ha! Sign of ovulation coming

    Poohy, haha! You bueh-loon. Anyway too early to poas . Lucky good!

    Ebichan I laugh when I read "protocol". When I was little, I thought a baby just pops when a man and a woman sleep together. That was my idea of protocol. Alas...now protocol gets so complicated.

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hahahah protocol indeed!!! When I was very young, I thought baby comes from the stork. When I grew older, I thought easy to make baby - no protection = got baby. Geez. How naive.

    Doc Tham is not the hamsome one . Hamsome is doc tseng but we decided on doc Tham. Hahahah. No eye candy I am afraid.

    Dragontail - how many more visits are needed?
