    yes this morning was my 12week scan together with nuchal translucency scan (first one for down syndrome). gynae said risk is low! mad happy heh. anyway just did a blood test for ease of mind as well. she also said she's placing her bets on a girl this time but no shopping yet cus not 100%. keeping fingers crossed, will really love to have a girl.
    Good to hear the news!!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Babydust to all!!!

    Re: rich relatives... I feel that people who are so called on the lower or middle income are more down to earth and whom i would have better conversations with.
    Obviously I'm not that rich myself not my husband so really feel the class consciousness at some of the work events I go to.
    One of the thing I dislike is assumptions like because I lived overseas (although Singaporean) or live in a certain area or went to International schools people assume like you are rich or spoilt when they dont't understand the situation.
    At some of these parties they dont't bother with me until some questions are asked like the above then suddenly I become worthy to talk to you? (I'm talking about some of these rich people I've come across) that is really off putting to me.

    Anyay I really want a simple life for me and my family.
    We would like to live in the countryside oneday.
    Realise I'm not a city person. Lol

    No one can be really prepared ...only thing is that you have try your best and dont let the baby sense your anxiety. .they can pick up on that. .

    If you ask me, I also dont know whether I can handle it..seems so long since my elder girl and all babies are different. .

    Good morning sunny Sunday. And I'm in 2ww finally on cd23.

    Feeling better today Happilymarried? There are always weirdo people around. Sometimes all I know is I dont't want to go to their level to understand them. That's when my "super power" comes in handy. Filter out what they say. And I'm quite good at it

    Going for my long morning walk next. Have fun everyone!

    Happilymarried : some ppl talk without thinking one. Ask them to get pregnant themselves n have a snake baby.

    Happilymarried - dont care them okay! They dont know the shit youve been through on your trying to concieve journey and thus they've absolutely no right to comment on how what when where you're gonna have your precious lil one. angry for you!

    Happilymarried: Been thru those nonsense constantly since I was a kid. I also dont't understand why our own relatives got so many issues with us. Maybe coz we cannot snap back at them due to their seniority? Now I just nod my head and 'Okay' at whatever BS they throw at me. Just focus on your baobei & ignore those ppl since family gatherings cannot siam. Next when you popped, they will still ask when is the next one blah blah blah...but if they could go as far as pick on my kid for no reason I dont't think I can 忍 like that. It will get ugly.

    Aiyo why the weekend also pass so quickly!!!!?

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Goody morning everyone!

    Happilymarried - awww you thought of us whilst peeing? Hee hee - just kidding! Anyway, ignore the family's supposedly good intentions. Like what Dragontail said - such situations are the best occasions to develop the 'art of filter' skills. Also, take it that this is their way of showing concern and excitement - ppl just express it differently =)

    Dragontail - dont't walk too much!!! 30min will suffice and slow walk... None of those brisk walking with the funny swinging arms and legs all crossed.

    Oh btw - my friend was chatting to me about her fertility journey yesterday. She has pcos and hubby's sperms are slow swimmers. she went to see doc 1 for 9 months and across these 9 months, doc kept insisting she didnt have pcos and gave her med that caused her period to come for 3 weeks - this happened twice. She also took injections (which may not be right for her pcos condition). Eventually doc told them go for ivf - she didnt want. She took a break and went to see doc 2. Doc 2 said she has pcos, gave her other med... Sent her for hsg... Voila she conceived naturally just after!

    I realized then how impt docs are, in treating fertility and underlying woman's issues. There are docs who push for ART as the be all and end all... And there are docs who believe in going all natural first before ART. And of course, doc's diagnosis of the situation as well.

    Food for thought this sun morning =)

    Wantonmee... Good to hear your baby is well... Congrats..

    Littlej.. you and me opposite.. I want my Nicole to come out early add in 37 weeks. I am quite tired and bored of waiting ald.. I wish to get myself back where I can twist, sleep on side way, on my stomache etc.. And away from feeling stomach tightness all the time..

    I know I can't complain much. I m lucky to have her. But sometimes those discomfort seems suffering..

    Sorry I am not a good mother... Last time I want her to come out on my bd. 27 step. But she will only be 33 weeks. But I dont't want her to be premature..

    I had durian yesterday.. After eating a while, smell seems to go away.. I eat lots of mangosteen back. Hee... What durian is the best? Where should I go? I know geylang have lots.
