    Yeah!! Looks like we have a good group of people for this Friday. Looking forward to catching up with everyone. The lift to the coffee shop is on the right after the reception desk so just go to the 2nd floor. Turn left, then right when you get out of the lift.

    See you Friday....

    P.S. Please remember to turn your mobile to silent as there's a fine for it ringing inside the club.

    Matty,
    I had an appointment at Tsan Yuk and told them that my glucose test, done in US, was normal. As proof I promised to bring in the report. They agreed not to repeat the test. I'm also low risk, with no problems. So, I don't know why they asked you do it again. So, I'm glad you refuse it!

    I also had a bit of dissapointment with a Tsan Yuk doctor who scared me by saying the baby looked too small while another doctor, the previous week, said the baby's size looked consistant with the assumed gestational period. So, I asked for an ultrasound. Now I am so worried and I hope it's this Tsan Yuk doctor's mistake. My original thought was that I would be "small" since my mom was small with her pregnancies.

    Syl,

    Who knows what Tsan Yuk's logic was with my glucose tests, I registered at 30 weeks, gave them copies of all my medical records, including the glucose test.
    After spending hours there, they then proceeded to schedule 3 different appointments (all on different days within the same week of course!) one for a regular checkup, one for the glucose test, and one for an ultrasound.

    I've told them I won't be having checkups with them and will continue seeing Dr Dawkins and will provide them with copies of my records, and I'll see them at QMH on delivery day!

    It's not worth the frustration and stress. I actually found it quite upsetting dealing with them.
    Try not to let them upset you over the size of the baby, there is a pretty big range of sizes which are considered normal, espescially if you are small too.
    It's better to have a baby that will fit through your pelvis, rather than a10lb clunker that gets stuck and results in an emergency c-section!

    Doctors blabla

    Hey SyL,
    During all my pregnancy, all doctors said "whow, what a big baby" (I was even worried that it would be "too big" for me and wouldn't get out ;-). 3 weeks before my due date, I started loosing weight and the baby also so my obstetrician, Dr Lord sent me to Dr Lam, a specialist in ante-natal care. He did me a doppler of my placenta to check if it was still working ok, it was working fina but at one moment he looked concerned (I HATE when they look concerned, it's so scary for us who can't read in their minds!) and started to asked me if I smoked during my pregnancy ("no") if I drank ("no") and finally said "well, it's going to be a very small baby but he looks completly fine, he's just going to be very small" (he repeated that 3 times, grrrrrrr). Finally my Sasha was 2.7kg for 46cm wich is quite small indeed but nothing scary. And he has enjoyed being oustide: He was eating so well to catch up that at 3 months he looked like a buddah !
    So my word would be not to focus too much on what the doctors say: Eachone will have a different opinion regarding the exact same scan so pick one and listen only to himl not to the other.The main thing of course is that your baby is in good shape and so are you. Enjoy the end of your pregnancy and don't worry too much !
    Take care,
    Alex

    ps: I'm not upset at all with dr Lam: He is a great dr and does great scan: For my actual pregnancy I went to him last month for the nuchal test and he was really kind (and managed to spot the sex at 12 weeks: It's a girl!)

    Hi ladies, I am so looking forward to lunch today! Just to let you know, I might be a few minutes late due to an 11 a.m. yoga class - life is terribly hard.

    Sunrays and XOX - I am glad you made it to Eugene group. Great dedication in T3. I've been there a couple of times on 'reconnaissance' missions. I think that my most successful trips there will be after the kid arrives (and I have a list and actually know what I need). SR - sorry you had to wait for Dawkins. I guess he's been busy the last few weeks while Dr. Sally Ferguson was on holiday. I look forward to hearing about your scan.

    Gidget - I'll try to bring more info on the Mandarin's temporary location, etc. There is one technician who has comes highly recommended.

    Anyone free for lunch on Friday?
    Maybe some Tapas at Boca in Soho, nice little meals since our stomachs are all being squished down to nothing these days!


    Cheers,
    Matty.
