    Happilymarried, I have been enduring numbness in my left rib cage since 2nd tri. Gynae said baby pressing on my nerves. Now the numb patch gets worse as my tummy grows. dont't be worried about the numbness. Could be just baby's position. Try massaging your arms and legs everyday.

I would use baby's weight gain as my gauge than my own weight because baby doesn't absorb everything you eat.
    Agree with TVH. I happen to flip through my elder daughter milestone that day..noted that at around the same weeks...my weight that I put on this time round is lesser than previous time but the estimated weight for my little scorpio is heavier than my elder daughter.. so dont't worry too much..most impt is that your baby is growing well and healthy.

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Good morning!!!

    Tvh - only 9kg??? *envious* mine is double of yours. Sigh...

    Happilymarried - hahaha - 我会努力减肥! Already booked my massage lady for 10 sessions and bought a belly band.

    I had numbness before too.. Anyway I do some leg stretching before I zzz - the point toes and flex back... As well as some hand exercises - the clench fist and release fingers... And pelvic floor... So I find it helps to reduce cramps and numbness. You may wanna try. Hahaha I very busy before I zzz I know =p

    Ebichan - as the rest have said - dont worry about the weight gain. Most important is baby growing well. Well - guys tend to be more cautious and less enthusiastic. During first trimester, I remembered my old man telling me dont't be so happy with each visit - we have so many more hurdles to clear with Oscar and detailed scan. And he always reminded me that if The risks are high, we have to do what we said we will do.

    Dragontail - booked your tix already? So excited for you!!!

    Yes - I really hope to see everyone on the list. And more horsey babies cuz me a horsey!!! Wa - i cant believe i am the first in the list - i have never been first in anything!!! =p

    Those who are popping near cny and looking for confinement nannies - better book early! And erm - be prepared to pay more too. My two godsons were born during cny so quite "chor".

    Jia lat - I read that one's appetite decreases in the last month cuz baby takes up more space in the tummy... But erm somehow I feel I get hungrier more frequently. Like when i woke up at 630am to pee tummy was growling - i just drank water and went back to zzz CuzI need to watch my food intake!!! doc doesn't want a hefty baby and muffin is already 3.3kg!!! Oh dear - I dont't wanna be 70kg... =(

    Littlej, I agree. I personally think that show quite crap. They can get pregnant so many times too. It makes it seem as if getting pregnant is such an easy task. I already stopped watching that show cos I think it is so screwed up.

    I didn't tell my hubby much about the milestones but he would acc me to appts if he could....maybe we both have this perception of whatever will happen will bound to happen...or maybe it is because that this is the 2nd one...I dont know. .

    But I do think that men in general dont wear their heart on their sleeves..so their reactions are not so big but you can see from some of their expression s or body language that they are happy.

    Hugs littlej. Truth is that all of us will have that fear no matter what. Seeing & holding muffin right after birth will be worth it. If you r under GA, you will miss all that. Thats my opinion. Plus only some will have side effects of trembling & puking with the epidural not all. Jiayou!!!

    Dragontail .. Congrats to your sis! Is your sis consulting Dr Sadhana cos I understand she prefers day 5 transfer. Yes Kandang Kerbau Hospital has no waiting list surprisingly while NUH has a waiting list of 2-3 months.

    Ebichan there is actually local anesthesia with C-section but not many will dare to see their abdomen being cut open .. My sis in law opted for GA instead of local for her c-section. Congrats on hearing the heartbeat!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Superwoman, thank you! Her first scan is 1Oct. I'm hoping to take time off to see the scan with her. I'm so excited to catch first glimpse of the beanie(s hopefully!). Yes she is under Dr Sadhana.

    Thelay, please dont feel any less "motherly". I believe every mommy has her perference/threshold in receiving the newborn. Opting for "less painful" procedure doesnt make you any difference from a mommy who wants to go gungho style. I always think I am very brave... I always think if others can do it, so can I. But I tell you, this is all say only. I'm ready to admit defeat if one day I'm faced with the extreme beyond my imagination. I'll say, just go with what you're comfortable with your own body.

    Littlej, so are you playing Carpenters on repeat mode today? Yes, I've just booked my trip I'm flying on the day of my hubby's birthday. Oops. But he got give me blessings l.a. I'm making it up by doing a staycation with him then next day I will fly.

    Thelay: Women in the past got no choice but to endure the pain with higher risks to mother & child. Now we have options. dont bother with those nazi-mums who thinks less of those who chose to reduce the pain. Just try to the best of our ability to use as little drug as possible.
