Feb 2014, my period came the ﬂow is quite a lot but did not bother much as this is my ﬁrst period after more than 1 year of breastfeeding. Mar 2014, period came but ﬂow is still too much, decided to go see a gynae after this. May 2014, ﬁnally went to see a gynae after dragging my feet about it. The doctor did an ultra scan and mentioned that one of my ovaries is bigger than the other, ask me some questions.
Baby Shi Qi is only expected to arrive in the world on 11 June 2015. I had made plans to start my maternity leave from 29 May 2015 onwards and was really looking forward to the 2 weeks of rest before she ofﬁcially comes. Due to the ﬂu season, I caught the ﬂu and cough virus from my colleague and was really ill from the start. I coughed badly and had to be on the bed at the start of my leave.
My hubby is currently posted in overseas for his work assignment for a year when I ﬁnally ﬁnd out that I'm pregnant with this 2nd one. Even we are planning for this year baby goat (same zodiac with me), I didn't realise it come earlier than we expected. So, for this time of pregnancy, most of the time I'm alone during the gynae check up and to take care my elder son which is also very sticky to me.
It was never an easy process but we are very grateful for the new addition to our family ... Catherine Lim
On 21 Apr 2015, my hubby and I visited the gynae as per norm. I was hoping that there will be a dropped in baby’s weight as per the previous visit, she has gained 500 gram over a course of 1 week. I was worried that I might not be able to deliver her via natural birth.
Being in our 30s, both my hubby and I were concerned about conceiving, but after 6 months of trying, my gynaecologist conﬁrmed that I was pregnant after taking the test kit. It showed a faint positive line and we were mildly excited and didn't want to keep our hopes up high. We were regular with keeping up with the scheduled ultrasound appointments, and as weeks and months went by, the scans showed that the foetus was growing well and everything was normal.
It was close to 3 am on April 29th when I ﬁrst experienced contractions. I woke up wondering if this could be a false labour as I've read it somewhere though I was already 39 weeks and 4 days into pregnancy. Being uncertain, I took out my phone and surf the net to look for the answer. At the same time, my hubby got up (I was surprised as I didn't wake him nor was I screaming in pain) and told me to dial the hotline given by the hospital to check with the nurses. The nurse told me to keep monitoring till I experience regular contractions at 5 minutes interval.
Zayder is our best wedding anniversary gift.
During my last antenatal check up before I gave birth, my gynae told me to choose a date from 25 May onwards to admit hospital for induction as the baby would be overdue by 24 May. Therefore, I chose 26 May as it was me and my husband's ﬁrst wedding anniversary and I thought it would be very signiﬁcant and meaningful if we could have him born on that day as well.
Although I had a diﬃcult labour at the end of the day, my bundle of joy was ﬁnally born ... Jennie Lim
My EDD was said to be on 3 May 2015, however my obstetrician think that I will go beyond my EDD, therefore, arrange for me to be induced on the 7 May 2015. Until she's back from her leave in the meantime a replacement doctor was arranged for me on standby in case I gave birth when she still on leave. On the night of 4 May 2015 around 9 pm, the contractions started. As usual, I thought it was just false contractions similar to what I had previously felt for the past 1 week.
I could hear the nurses count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ... 10 and repeat the counting process ... Sharon Yuan
Jarryl Liao is both our best birthday present my hubby and I could ever wish for! We have planned a baby for 5 years. Thinking of having In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) as our last straw. Our gynae also told us to be patient and I took the vitamins and folic acid she prescribed. We didn't wait for too long before the good news came in three months later when I got pregnant. This was indeed a wonderful news for our immediate family.
Ever since I was pregnant with Mark, my instincts have been quite accurate. I dreamt of his gender and his name when I was 2 months pregnant with him. Therefore I trusted my instincts that I may give birth to him earlier too. I took 3 weeks of leave before my due date and in the end, Mark was too comfy in my tummy and he was overdue by a week.
