Sorry gals! I won't be able to catch up at end of Mar, just realised our flight's 27th Mar instead of 28th Mar ...memory's getting bad after pregnancy (luckily hubby reminds me
Sandy, will have to catch up with you in May when you're in town. Holland Village or Orchard side are convenient for me as I don't live near MRT although very close to bus stop. I think there's only 1 bus can take me to Bugis but it's a 40mins ride. By the way, re the costs, I forgot to clarify that 12k including my obs mthly visit plus blood tests for down syndrome. The hospital cost is roughly same as Julia's one for a single room except Gleneagles only allows for 2 nights stay for normal delivery or 3 nights for C section. The extra night would charge on top of package cost. Assuming you've done all the tests in your country already since you're wk 19, so the obs cost would be cheap. Last wk, I paid $800 for obs visit from wk 16 onwards till delivery excluding additional 3D ultrasound or blood sugar test if required. They only offer this package till turned wk16 which's slightly different from Sydney private hospital as they have package for you to purchase on discounted rate after 1st visit. Not sure about others Obs, you will have to check with them when you decide to see one as they may practice differently.
Julia, let me know if you want to catch up beforehand. Otherwise will see you all in Apr/May. Take care!
