The complications of pregnancy - Low Amniotic Fluid

At times i really think why is life so unfair? why do most people seemed to go through a smooth pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby and why can't i do it?

Our first ended up in a miscarriage at 10 weeks.

my current sticky bean, based on my 15.5 weeks check up (supposedly safe into 2nd trimester) things are not looking as promisingly though it doesn't look as bad either.

we won't know, went to seek a 2nd opinion from Dr Yvonne Chan at TMC, verdict is still the same, the gynaes can't tell except to adopt a "wait and see" attitude.

So what happened?

To summarise, my amniotic fluid level is not ideal, is a bit on the low side but not criticially low to classify as an emergency.
As a result, there's a lack of space for baby to move about, baby seems squashed and stuck half the time.

But the good news:

Baby's growth measure to date.
kidney, bladder is working, there's urine.  As one of the top reasons for low amniotic fluid is baby's kidneys …

Baby expo 2013

ever since we came to know about the upcoming Motherhood Expo from 30th May and decided to take a look and start planning what we want to get for our sticky bean, Mr. Keir bought his very first present for sticky bean too! (though i'm merely approaching 14 weeks now)

I've been on such a shopping frenzy excitement that I can't help googling and surfing online on the different types of baby items we can buy..

hence..i'm all so excited about the following baby expos coming up in 2013.
