    Hello new mummy's,

    I am due October 28th and this is our first - I foudn out 2 weeks ago and it was a wonderful surprise!! I haev been living in HK for 6 months and work full time in a hotel with long hours which is killing me right now. I am so tired and very weepy - I cry at nothing! Also in a bit of pain - similiar to period pain but apparently all normal.
    I have decided to try public care and have our first appt on Apirl 4 where we will hopefully book a bed - are you all doing private or public? Any ideas where is best for public?

    So many questions...I can not wait to get big and show offmy bump - I haev already looked at www.topshop.com for fab trendy maternity bits I can ship over!!

    Dawkins is planning on leaving HK this summer. Best to check with his nurse.

    Hi Ladies,

    Can I join you? I'm 8w+5 and due October 5th and it's my first baby. I've had two scans already and it's just amazing seeing the baby.

    Soon2bmum - I'm with Dr Ho too - he's lovely - I would definitely recommend him to anyone. I'm also booked into the Matilda.

    Kharel - Wow you must be shattered working long hours. The good public hosptial is Queen Mary in Pokfulam (I think?....someone correct me if I'm wrong)

    Mazamarie - Great that you don't have bad morning sickness. I've had it since week 4 and I'm constantly nauseaus. I've tried acupuncture which has helped a little. Everyone keeps telling me that m/s is good as it means your hormone levels are high, but when you're getting up in the night to be sick you just want it go to away. I too have found that constantly eating helps - I'll be the size of a house by the time the baby comes

    Looking forward to getting to know you all over the coming months.

    Hooray!

    This club is really happening! I'm so glad!

    Well, I live in Tung Chung, so I guess it's really far away from anywhere around Central, which I guess is where most expats hang out? I've also just been in HK for a year.

    If anyone is looking for an obgyn, I'm with Dr. Philip Ho and I found out that he was trained in Australia (UNSW, 1984, I saw his plaque in the waiting room). Coming from Australia myself, that gave me extra reassurance! :-). So if Dr. Dawkins is going back home, nicolejoy, maybe you can give Ho a try.

    By the way, if anyone wants to take a tour at Matilda, Inty Ting is the Client Relations Manager, her tel is 28490355 and email is [email protected]

    I've got to come up here everyday and chat from now on!

    Thanks for letting me know. I might call and switch doctors. I haven't seen him yet so it's no big deal to switch now... if I meet him and love him, I won't wanna switch!!
