    My husband read up on the link between caffeine and pregnancy and he seems to remember that, new studies show, over 200mg of caffeine in the first trimester would increase the risk of miscarriage from 1 in 12 to 1 in 4! In any case, significantly higher, and recommended not to have any at all if poss (in the first tri at least). British gov recommends throughout preg, max 300mg.

    Googled caffeine in drinks and coffee has approx 100-175, can of coke has 34mg (diet coke has even higher - 46mg), English tea has up to 60mg. Whereas sprite has none and green tea has 15mg.

    Annerley is in Central. They provide ante-natal and post-natal services. There aren't any doctors there though, they mainly provide classes, doulas and mother-baby groups.

    Gladys,

    The class in Canossa was a mixture of talks and also includes an exercise class (practising some prenatal exercise) and also breathing. In general, i think it was quite good and reasonable for price.

    Has anyone found a good GP? I've had a nasty stomach bug (really not been much fun) so next time would like to be more prepared in case a visit to the doctor is needed!

    It's hard not to get a little paranoid about how your baby is when you're sick.

    I know what you mean about being paranoid! I'd started feeling the baby kick for a few days in a row a couple of weeks ago. Then, one evening, I was walking too fast and walked into a turnstile of the MTR before it had released! I got a bit of a blow to the tummy, just above the pelvic region.... Didn't feel the baby move for days after that! Was so worried! I think for the past two weeks, I'd only felt the odd occasional movement, unlike the fairly strong flicks that i was getting before! I'm pretty sure I felt some kicks this morning again and will just pass it as the baby turned into a position where I couldn't feel him for the past two weeks...!

    Smiles - Sorry to hear you've had a stomach bug - hope you're feeling better now. Although I registered with a GP surgery when I first came to HK last year I haven't actually used them so can't comment if they're any good/if I feel comfortable with them. I registered with Drs. Owens, Trodd & Partners in Central Tel: 2521 3181 if that helps.

    PF - I've also been feeling the baby kick and then a few days where he/she seems very quiet. I've taken to drinking lots of iced water to get it moving about so I can feel it - I do feel a bit mean as I'm sure the baby is quite happy sleeping and then I wake it up by drinking my ice cold water!!
