    Hey ladies,

    So happy to hear from a lot of April and May moms/moms to be! Had my OSCAR done at 12weeks 6 days and picked up result 3days later. Everything was fine and which, was a big relieve since I have a Down Syndrome sister.
    I have booked Baptist Hospital but like other new moms, I'm actually very scare thinking about if I should give birth naturally or c-section....
    having my 16 weeks scan in 2 weeks something hopefully I will be able to see the sex of my baby~

    Hey I had my OSCAR done yesterday n the dr guessed it's a baby gal!

    I bought a nice top at ninemonths.

    Does anyone need to wear suits at work? I occasionally do and thinking of what to do.

    Will you hire nanny during the first month? I mean "Pui yut"

    My dr friend told me that stretch marks are inherited so if your mum has it then u probably will have it

    Yeah stretch marks are partly genetic, but the belly rubs help with the itchiness when stretching. My mom had them, but I didn't get them but of course don't know if it was the creams. I don't have to wear suits, but you could probably get some nice tops and skirts at HandM too?

    My EDD is 5th May 2011. Have my 12 weeks check-up in 10 days. I am thinking what kind of cream/oil to start to prevent stretch marks. Luckymama, I am happy to hear that stretch marks might be inherited because my mom doesn't have any. But I am pretty slim so I guess my chance of getting stretch marks in the later pregnancy is still high.

    A friend of mine used cocoa butter from The Body Shop, another friend recommended edible extra virgin olive oil(but I found it very sticky after applying onto the skin). Do you ladies have some tips of skin care from the early pregnancy to prevent stretch marks? Please share. :)

    My friend used clarnis herbal oil. I am a bit lazy to put it on everyday.

    How much weight did u put on so far? I've put on 7lbs. I'm really trying not to eat too much coz I don't wanna be too blown up.

    Ladies, whether or not stretchmarks are genetic, I don't think using an anti-stretchmark oil/cream can be of any harm. It can only help so find one that suits your skin (really I think using any good oil is the main criteria here) and use it anyway! At least you'll know you tried. :) I've started using the Mambino firm and tone oil with their body butter as well and it feels and smells nice (though slightly sticky).

    Luckymama - congrats on the news of a girl!

    Hey Mariac,

    I love the Mambino stuff as well! Smells great and is sticky at first, but then it absorbs. I used it last time and it seemed to help. Congrats on the girl Luckymama...doc said it might be a boy at our oscar, but who knows...he said to wait til the 20week scan.
