First Check-Up at The Children’s Medical Centre

Ever since our baby was born, I’ve been worried about every single thing we notice about her, like when her breath sounds seem noisy (could it be asthma?) or when she develops rashes on her face (could it be eczema?). Finally, we decided to go for her first check-up after one month, and also to…

The Final Bill from KK

I’ve been waiting for the final bill from KK Hospital since last week for my normal delivery with epidural and induction. As I’ve mentioned previously, when I was admitted we had to pay the estimated bill amounting to SGD4,695.00 outright. I’ve been praying that when the final bill arrives, we would have to pay less than…

So Much False Contractions – And Still Not Dilated!

My hubby and I kept hoping that I would give birth before the check-up today, so that we won’t have to pay another SGD75+. I’ve had several false contractions, which I would even attempt to time, but it always goes away. My doctor said that the baby is about 3.0 kg now, but that should…

A Waiting Game

Today, we had another check-up with Dr. Natalie Chua at KK Hospital, and my mom came with us. My parents will be here for the next two months to help take care of the baby, though we have a maid already (the same maid who took care of me as a baby, no less). We…

Soon and Very Soon

So we had another check-up today with Dr. Natalie Chua at KK Hospital, and I was tested for something called Group B Streptococcus, which kinda sounds scary. She assured me that it wasn’t really serious though even if I tested positive – they would just have to use antibiotics during my delivery to make sure…

My Pregnancy Tracker (via Excel)

I can’t seem to live without MS Excel. I use it a lot at work, and I use it a lot when I get home, since I set up all my financial records (budget, loan payments, etc) in Excel as well. On a sudden whim, I thought it would be interesting to know how my…

Double Confirmed… It’s a Girl…

Here in Singapore, there’s this usual expression, “double confirm” which basically means re-confirm or double check. So anyway, I thought I’d only start thinking of girl names once I’ve double confirmed that we’re really having a girl. My hubby is leaning towards the name “Emma” but I’m still not sure. After all, I want a…

It’s a Girl!

  This is the drawing my hubby posted on Facebook right after we found out that we are having a girl! On the way to KK Hospital for my check up, I realized that I left behind my appointment card and the obstetric ultrasound request form for the screening ultrasound I was supposed to do. At…

Refund from KK!

Today was a good day, and one of the main reasons is that we finally got our final hospital bill from KK Hospital. When my hubby was arranging my discharge papers, the person at the billing section told him that it was not yet the final bill, and that the final bill will only be…

Highlights of my KK Stay

Here are some “highlights” from my stay at KK: – I finally met my new gynecologist Dr. Natalie Chua on my second day (having gotten a referral from my previous gynecologist, which I mentioned here). Unfortunately, she dropped by my room a few minutes after my hubby went out to buy breakfast so he wasn’t…

Off to the ER

December 1 (Saturday) was my hubby’s office Christmas party. When I first heard about it a few months ago, I was planning to go with him since family was invited plus I like his colleagues that I’ve met before. Unfortunately, when I started suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), I decided not to go since I was…

My Last Check-up at Gleneagles

Today, my hubby and I went back to Gleneagles Hospital for my check-up even though my appointment was still a few days away. Since there was a free slot, I was not charged the additional SGD50.00 for emergency consultations. I was finally on my second trimester, and hoping that there would be any improvement in…
