another thing you can do is to put a small stool under your feet when you go to the toilet... human body is not made to shit sitting down. Hospitals actually recommend you to squat, if can't squat cuz very uncomfortable, use a stool to prop your feet up, or lean forward when you are on the toilet bowl. just those small stools the mas use to sit on and scrub clothes kind... it really helps me. actually long term sitting while shitting can cause bowel issues.
Thanks whimsymummy will try prune juice..
Can anyone feel the baby yet? I'm at 15 weeks + 2 days, and was bending over in my seat to change my work shoes to slippers, and felt two finger taps in lower abdomen. I'm pretty sure it wasn't gas or any muscle spasms. Most online pregnancy literature state that fetal movements can be first felt between 16-22 weeks, so this might be it!

yes can feel and its normal! i also felt movements and slight kicks at week 15 too.
I dont't feel anything yet ): although I'm only 14 weeks plus so hopefully in the next two weeks can feel! It's so exciting! Happy for mummies who can feel baby already!
I wanted to donate cord blood actually...but I also want to do delayed cord clamping...and it seems that the two things are not compatible.
Delayed Cord Clamping - How Delayed Cord Clamping Significantly Benefits Your Baby for those who are interested in reading about delayed cord clamping. it's only 2-3 mins so it's a small waiting time only.
Also have been chatting to other mummy friends who are delivering soon...really hope you ladies have discussed your decisions for birthing with your gynae even though you may think it's quite early. but my friend is very upset with gynae cuz she keeps pushing for c-sect, and says that if she wants natural then she doesn't want to let my friend get epidural. and since my friend is due next week, it's too late to change gynae already... so best to make sure your gynae will agree with certain decisions you want, so that if you want to change gynae, it's not too late!
Hi anybody knows where I can get Physllium Husk? It's suppose to help in constipation.....
Search - psyllium husk - iHerb.com
iherb, in all forms
Just came from Mummy's Market baby expo. It's super crowded and full of pregnant women and mums pushing strollers. After seeing the crowd, hard to believe Singapore has population growth problem.. Haha...
Managed to get my Medela swing maxi set with sterilizer. Got the warmer too as my friend bought the freestyle set. The queue was 1hr 45 mins long cuz that booth is really popular but they only have one cashier. Sigh. Bring your husband to queue for you while you walk around. It's really nuts. I didn't even have the heart to buy much stuff cuz the queues were all so long. Only bought a cute wet bag and breast milk storage bags (120pc for $26; Medela was selling 20pc for same price!) from mummykidz.com stall which was next to Medela, went to browse while patient hubby waited in the queue... They have some cute baby clothes in many stalls around too, but so many ppl gave me baby clothes so dont't need to buy.
Think tomorrow will be even worse, if you can, go super early and cheong for what you want. Note that the Britax stroller stall is NOT selling their strollers at the discount price stated!! The discount price was only for display pieces! I wanted to buy car seat but it's so crazy and busy that the vendors dont't really have time to help you or discuss with you. So I gave up buying seat. You must really do your research first and go there already knowing what you want so that you can just take and line up. Lucky I called a friend who offered to pass me their infant car seat in the end. No need to stress about car seat until baby is about 1yo!
My last big ticket items will be crib and changing table. I will prob get those from Ikea.
Anyone else has gotten most of your major items already? Hope my info is helpful to those gg for baby expo. Sorry if it is very long to read!

Thanks for informing and comprehensive information!
i was thinking and contemplating whether to go.. i think i will give it a miss as i have "donations" for stroller and baby car seat...
for breast pump, i am intending to borrow from people because i scare i got no milk.
i think i will do more research before going such expos. too many items, too many people.. overwhelming for me..
currently 17 weeks and i had brown spotting due to a bad cough pushing my placenta down - because i have low placenta..
so i have to rest more instead of walking around in crowded congested areas.
very tired my legs are going to crack. Bot breast milk storage bags 80 pcs at 20 dollars, stroller very lightweight n very easy to fold to keep it at 259, joie carseat that can be used from newborn to 7 yrs old at 299. Was thinking to buy sec hand or borrow from friends milk pump but I read reviews that ameda milk pumps r quite good n reasonable price so I bot it at 329 with storage bags n disposable pads as so called freebies haha. Also bot tomy milk bottles n bribs though we still dont't know the gender yet hehe. We also bot atocare vacuum cleaner for mattress n soft toys as I saw my friend's one yr old branded mattress got a lot dust mines n dusts after she used the vacuum to suck them out.
wow tpy you really made your trip worthwhile... hehe! I also dont't know gender that's another reason why not too keen to buy clothes yet...rely on donations for now! the vacuum cleaner sounds like a good idea!!
Your Ameda breast pump is a single or double? $329 is a good price. the Medela maxi deal is not bad too, came with disposable bra pads and nipple cream plus extra bottles and $30 voucher. A lot of people didn't get their freestyle set cuz they ran out of stock but I heard they restocked for today.
I bought the ameda double electric pumps. No loud noise when pumping. my colleague is now using medela pumps very noisy as she pumps in the office n I am seated near her. Kind of irritated by the sound so I did not want to go for that brand.
Oh ya today we went back again as yesterday no more energy to go for Harvey Norman sale which is also at expo to find items for our new house. Bought California baby calendula cream smaller bottle n same brand body cum shampoo for baby. Was suppose to buy the bigger bottle of the cream but today no stock again. Yesterday no stock by 2pm.
ya the freestyle is very noisy I heard.. but the swing maxi is much quieter. so I did not go for the freestyle... anyway the room where we pump is very insulated, even had colleagues bring hair dryer and dry hair before and can't even hear that from outside. haha! so at least I won't disturb colleagues.
i wanted to get the cali baby cream too!! totally forgot when I was there sigh. and no amount of begging can get hubby to go back to expo and into that madness... lol
Lol jadeite, maybe can get it again in future baby fairs then coz even when I was there yesterday at 1pm the calming shampoo cum body wash n the cream left last bottle n lucky I managed to get them. I have not buy sterilizer though as I m not sure how useful it is as compared to our mother time, using boiling water mtd....
I only bought the sterilizer cuz it was $50 with purchase of the pump... Original price $250 I think. So ok quite worth it just buy. My mum also said just use hot water haha.
The good thing about the steriliser is it will auto off once done & saves water. Traditional method needs a big pot, esp if you pump = more bottles, & needs monitoring. The thing is not sure the parts of the pump can use traditional method to sterilise or not.
