Pregnancy: When you wrist hurts like nobody’s business (All about De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis)
If you could name just ONE pregnancy pain, what would it be? For me, my painful wrist wins hands down. It all started around week 30. That was when I noticed my fingers and hands feeling numb and tight after a night’s sleep. I ignored it and put it down to water retention. When the swelling got worse a week or two l later, I started googling for possible causes. I landed on a page that told me I could have carpal tunnel syndrome.
Pregnancy: The third trimester 4D scan – I saw Chua Bee Bee’s cute little face!
Oh what chubby cheeks you have! At close to 30 weeks now, I’m into my final trimester! At my week 27 appointment, Chua Bee Bee measured 1.1kg and is growing well. But the scans at my gynae’s clinic were getting a tad boring cos he can only scan Chua Bee Bee’s head since she’s getting so big. So all I was seeing at every scan was a round shape on the screen. Like a typical first-time parent willing to spend on unnecessary things, I decided to look around for somewhere to do a 4D scan!
