If your pregnancy test is coming out positive then you are definitely pregnant! The test detects hCG, a hormone released by the placenta right after the embryo begins implanting into the uterine lining. But whether this is a viable pregnancy is really a waiting game and best to be discussed with your doctor. I have a wonderful OBGYN Dr. Brenda Low at Gleneagles - but if you do a search on this forum for gynaes there are several mentioned. Best of luck :)

Hi MissJen
Wondering if you had happy news.
I actually even had a period - albeit very short 24-36hrs and a week later discovered I had conceived. My doctor explained that this is not uncommon for the lining to shed slightly even though I was pregnant. Now have a 3 year old. So hope your test was in fact positive.
:)

hi

FIRST: Congratulations!!! - its a wonderful message :)

Second: i am 26 and my Dr. told me about it because i was asking. It is common for older women but it doesnt mean u have to do it!!! If u do it it doesnt mean that everything will be okay its a chance to see if something is wrong but it can also be something wrong with ure baby if u dont see anything at the amniocentesis. There is a risk when u do the amniocentesis to lose ure baby.

The question is: When something seems to be wrong will u get ure baby or not?

With very good check ups and nuchal fold scan it should be the "same". U can check the health of the baby with the nuchal fold scan and weight/length checkup etc.

I have a friend (age: 23) who did the amniocentesis because at the ultrascan it seemed that something is wrong but after the amniocentesis it seemed okay. She has a healthy baby now.

i am not a doctor maybe u ask a second and third opinion from gynecologists.



I have friends who are in ure age and they giving birth to healthy babys without amniocentesis.

How about ure family history? what about youre bloodtest? is it okay?
All things are important.

There are a lot of sides in the internet maybe u read about and ask some dr? and there are videos too.


I think u should hear to yourself!! u know what u really want and do how ure feeling is :) it will be the right desicion.


congratulation again :) its the best experience.

hug u

Postby sabs » Tue, 21 Apr 2009 11:26 pm

thats right. But believe me it won't change if your baby is born. There are a lot of people who will tell u what is the best for your baby and what u should do and not do. BUT the best is your feeling - your feeling is the right decision. Maybe u will sometimes hear what other people (maybe family) say but sometimes later u will think 'why haven't i done what i am thinking about'

Of course sometimes are many good advices and you are happy that u have ure family and friends :)


I think u have a few weeks bevor u have to decide. (i think between 15th and 18th week of pregnancy will be the amniocentesis)

Take your time!!

When have u your next check up?



i heard that Dr. Ann Tan (very nice) is specialized for complications in pregnancy. Maybe u will go to her for a check up but its expensive (but for baby's health "nothing is to expensive"). Maybe u only go once and than to a "cheaper" doctor. I paid over 300 SD on my first visit. (but i am not local)

hmm

Postby sabs » Wed, 22 Apr 2009 10:06 am

did u spoke to dr. tan personally? or to the woman at the desk outside?

U have to be more consistent. Say u have to see her (on the phone) because u are afraid.
and when they answer: i am sorry.. no time.
You say: please, only for a few minutes - not longer. Please help me

(when i do it, it works)



My Dr. Yeo Motoko has a lot of patients but when i call because i have something important i have to come and then i wait like an hour (then i say i have to go - suddenly i am in :wink: )
(all women who work in her ordination are very nice)

hmmm... thats not very nice from dr. tan.




in 2007 in Sep i have an abortion after 3 month pregnancy because my baby was death 1 month long in me!!! (i felt it, but my husband said that everything is okay and i always said: no i dont feel pregnant anymore. - and so it was) its hard. very hard when u love to be a mum and want your healthy baby in your arms. I had to let go (i cried 3 months and felt very upset) and moved forward. My doctor in my country said to me that the baby wasn't strong enough and nobody had could change that. He said to me if the baby was born he think it would be not healthy. It is very very hard.
I only want to say that i was 24 and it happend to a lot of my girlfriends that the first pregnancy was not okay and now they have a healthy child.



i hope for u that everything will be okay :love:

Think positive!!! and enjoy your pregnancy (your wonder) :)
Take care.

It doesnt matter whether you choose to breastfeed from your breast of with a breast pump like the Avent Duo Isis, Avent Pump , Medela Style, or Ameda Purely Yours the essential element is your natural breast milk. Modern science has provided us with more and more proof that breast milk has countless benefits both for mom and the baby.

Hi MissJenOK,

I experienced CVS the earlier test to Amnio. If you have a choice not to do it, then my advice is not to do it. It was a pretty traumatic experience for me and yes there is always a chance of miscarriage.

In my case, I did the CVS because I was given 1:4 chance of a DS baby.
Regards, Lil'Pea

Hi missjenOK.... firstly congratulations! and I hope things are going well.... it may be too late to answer your questions re the amnio...i just wanted to let you know that I had one... i was 34 when i was pregnant... and thought the same.. some countries suggest you do once you are 35 and over others say 38... but i thought 34 is not much difference plus my husband has a cousin with Down's (even though the father's side does not have much significance when it comes to Down's).... however what i wanted to say... is that it is definitely a very personal choice... but my advice is, if you are sure that you would not to have a child with Down's then do the amnio.. but if you want to keep the child no matter what.. then don't do it.... since it doesn't matter what the result is.... so why take the risk (even though it is quite a low risk)... hope this helps... i wish you all the best... enjoy every second of your pregnancy... it is definitely one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever had.....
