    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Happilymarried - if you buy in Hk - best to also get the travel bag then remove from
    Box, pack in travel bag and do a check in. dont't check in with the box as you may get taxed in sg cuz it will look like a "new" purchase. You will lose any "savings" as such.

    If you are traveling by sq - shouldn't get additional charge. Cuz sq quite baby friendly. And it looks like a used pram not brand new =)

    That's what my friend did. She got a pram from US when she was there.

    Trust me, even with an obvious belly there will be loads of 白目people & 低头族who will bump into you. So really must be careful. Enjoy your pregnancy. Find a doc that you r comfortable with & who delivers at the hospital nearest to home.

    Oooh congrats quincy!!!!!

    Have lots of rest in your first trimester. Be happy! I've had folic acid and Duphaston. Folic acid is a must and your gynae is right. Just get from pharmacy, cheaper that way and folic acid readily available over the counter

    Not only that....even with an obvious bump, ppl still pretend not to notice you in the train and not give up the seat to you.

    Ya.do encounter sometimes. .but I also met some kind hearted who would helped me to tell the person sitting on the reserved seat to give up the seat..

    Mine wasn't round too. I think slightly pointy. It depends on your baby's position in your womb too. Towards later stage, your belly will suddenly balloon. Mine suddenly ballooned at 34 weeks and still ballooning and getting very tight and umcomfortable, and it seems to get bigger each day. My belly button only popped out like at 32 weeks or so.

    Rav, TVH: maybe mine still early.. And maybe due to my retroverted uterus also but my belly now looks like I'm fat instead of pregggy. Heh I'm also very scared that my belly button will pop!

    Hahaha same same! My belly seems to have exploded from week 35 onwards and continues its explosive journey. It used to look Pointy but now I feel like I am carrying a big round watermelon. Even my long tshirts are getting shorter in front. I also feel my boobs getting rounder.

    I have been darn spoiled. I have not't taken public transport since my bfp. Hahaha should I try taking mrt now!!!

    Lol. Better dont try. you will be amazed at how fast ppl can fall asleep or be soooo focused on their tiny phone screen that their peripheral vision is also impaired. you r lucky that you dont have to fight for seats. I sure hope that I pop on a time when AYE no jam. If not have to take mrt. Hahahaha

    Oh I buay pai seh - I will tap tap on shoulder and ask if I can have the seat.

    I had injured ankles last time and both ankles were Bandaged. During the last phase of recovery, i could walk / stand but only for short distances. there were a few times I had to take train cuz I couldn't get a cab. I actually tapped the shoulder of those perfectly healthy young person seated and told the person I have ankle injury (pointed below) and if the person doesn't mind can I have the seat please and I can show the doc's letter if the person didnt believe. Hahaha - I managed to get a seat. Of course I won't do that to old folks or pregnant women or parents with kids or those whom I think look pregnant. I did it to those healthy looking young ones. And I didn't care if it is reserved or normal seat.

    Super thick skinned I know... But I feel if you dont't fight for yourself, noone will fight for you! Hahahhaa.

    I'm still taking public transport, have not't been taking cabs too unless absolutely necessary becos i'm very giam siap...i can't bear to pay so much for cab fare...haha
    and the way the cab drivers drive, I feel like puking each time...and there was one time the cab driver missed seeing the hump and went over the hump so hard that i felt like scolding him...uncle, i'm already 32 weeks pregnant!! you want to be responsible should anything happen to me?! But i lun.....I super duper hate taking cabs...i'd rather take train

    Quincy, take it easy too! Haha...

    Now that you r preggy, you need to keep your emotions in check becos stress and anger releases hormones that would not be beneficial tp your growing bean. Think of your little bean. you can't control what ppl say anyway so no point being offended. Be zen!
