    a quick question- I was about to join the facebook group mentioned above but will my friends be able to see that I have joined the Due Date group and therefore know I am pregnant? (I don't plan of telling people until I get to 3 month mark). I know it says private group but I don't know how it will appear? thanks!

    by the way, for those wondering what options they have... this is my 2 cents worth, having been pregnant and given birth in HK 18 months ago in Queen Elizabeth, public hospital.
    I persoanlly had a great experience with them. I was warned to expect no attention or bedside manner unless something goes wrong, and that's pretty much what I got. The antenatal checks can be long and tedious waits, followed by a 30 second consult, but like I said, they do it so often, they know what they are doing and if they need to see you more they will. I coupled it last time with a few private scans and then a package with the Family Zone, Yvonne Heavyside, for when I came out of hospital. We probably paid a total of 350HKD for hospital birth, 2000 antenatal classes, 4000 Family Zone Package. This time Im not sure what private services we will pay for but I just wanted to let you know that the Public Hospitals aren't as bad as you hear (I hope I haven't just cursed myself for this pregnancy!)
    there you go! :-)

    Yes they will be able to see you've joined. Best to wait a couple more weeks. :)

    Also, if some of you are still confused on the Public vs Private route, here's a great article

    Thank you Rani for the advice! I went to Dr Catherine Cheung today as I was having slight cramps and was worried when my friend said that she lost her baby because of that. She said it is common and prescribed me some folic acid and Algae DHA oil tablets, and asked me to return when I am in my 7th week for an ultrasound.

    I am wondering if it is safe to travel in the first trimester? I asked the nurse and she said it is not advisable and I may miscarriage. However I read that many people continued with their travel plans with no ill effects. I booked my ticket to return to Singapore on 8th March before I knew I am pregnant and am scheduled for an internal ultrasound on the 7th. Do you think it is advisable to have the ultrasound date and travel date so close together?? I am not sure how invasive internal ultrasound is.

    I am really keen to join you ladies for dinner tomorrow but I don't think I can make it. Update if there is a second meet-up coming up!
