yes safe to have steamboat. make sure you cook your food thoroughly!
This is a discussion on EDD Mar 2014 within the Year 2014 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Also just a quick question - is it safe for us to eat steamboat?...
Also just a quick question - is it safe for us to eat steamboat?
yes safe to have steamboat. make sure you cook your food thoroughly!
yes Jade - just make sure the food is cook properly and when you drink the soup, do ensure it's boiling and not scope when someone just added uncooked food into the pot. Also gentle reminder for those to like yu sheng, please remember there's raw fish in it, so avoid eating yah in case you forgot
hmmm dont think my company have the 2 weeks hospitalisation leave, and also doubt my gynae can give me that. but i'll be glad to work till the day I give birth. I can't stand being at home doing nothing, so coming to work keeps me occupy.
TYP - could it be the room too cold? or the aircon dusty? it's a pity not to have it if you feel good after the massage. or you ask if there's home base type? at least environment you are in control. I'm so looking forward to another massage - this time with Nouri in Feb
I enjoyed my prenatal massage at Qi Mantra but i think it's rather costly. besides, i rather save the money for other baby precious things or postnatal massage.
I will consider home massage during confinement.. anyone got recommendations? i also want to do the jamu massage. my friends told me it's a MUST!
anyway, LH779, i heard from some people that there's a reason why they will not massage after 33 weeks.. it might cause contractions and even resulting in premature labour. like touching certain nerves or nipples so I thought I better tell you.
Jadeite, yes.. because i am going to do c-sect. i am researching on whether to do GA or epidural. I've decided to go for GA because of my case of low lying placenta.
i think you mention before about delayed cord clamping? are you gg to do it? i read mixed reviews about it. oh and im not going to eat my placenta.
are you all going for the feb baby fair? i know maybe the april one is worth going but Feb one ? i scared it turn out to be like the dec one.. small and meaningless to go.. haha
my baby now weighs 2kg at 32 weeks. hope it will grow bigger incase of premature labour.
I was also looking at california baby washing products. GOSH! there are so many types... dont't know what to buy.
anyone want to add me in mums.sg network? keke
Zhumei i will be going for csec with ga.
If i am going to donate the cord blood, can i still delay the cord clamping?
Hi mummies, any reviews for Mdm zaliah (mdm ida,s cousin), mdm mariam (mdm ida's sister) ?
Hi mummies, are there any tests to be done after we are about 28 weeks onwards?
Tpy, you can only choose one or the other. Either the blood is saved for cord blood donation, or you let the blood go into baby for delayed cord clamping.
Zhumei, think I'll just donate cord blood. In the end since the cord blood can be so much more useful as a donation, better to give it to someone to save someone's life.
I might go for the feb baby fair. It will be a small one at suntec, but I like to shop and look at things hehe. Furthermore I still need to get a crib or playpen for my mom's place. Anyway for the April one, I won't be able to go since I'll definitely be on confinement. Already made my husband promise to go buy diapers and wet wipes for me at the April baby market. Hehe. Since by then we will know what size diapers baby can wear...

Hi mummies, I am going to finish my confinement and I have a brand new lemon grass confinement shower gel (700ml) to let go. Bought here Family Care/ Confinement Care - Mama Online Store at $18 before their sale. Am selling now at $14. Also , brand new medela nipple cream (37g) at $15. Please contact me 90053474 if you are interested k. Thanks!
Oh ok jade. I also feel that it is a good gift from our babies to the more needy ones. I will be meeting the staff from cord blood bank tomorrow during work to settle the donation admin stuffs.
Tpy, how was your meeting? What sort of questions did they ask you?
Went for check up today, baby is 1.8kg at 31 weeks, 77th percentile. Gynae wants to see me every two weeks already. Is this usual? Bought package anyway so I suppose it's worth it. Haha. Asked him about episiotomies and he said he does not do it routinely, yay! He will try to allow for stretching or at most a small tear.

Zhumei my gynae will tell me what's the percentile.. Cuz I think most of the online charts are for American babies, not for Asian or Singaporean babies.
You can use this link but it's American I think...
Jade, I have started 2 weeks once visit since my 31th week and bought package too. Not sure if I can finish the package if not very lugi hehe.
The meetup with the cord bank staff, there were a lot of questions to be answered like any blood related illness from my hubby n my side but focus would be the girls side I feel. Even asked which are the countries that I have travelled to for past three years and duration. She also mentioned that they will collect three tubes of blood for lab test. If I received any calls from them after baby has being delivered, it would means that the cord blood and blood test are successful. No calls means cord blood will be discarded as it does not pass the test

Oh ok...thanks tpy! The website mentioned that the qns can be asked over the phone...you chose to do face to face?
the questions asked during the phone were not a lot, i thought over the phone would have done and who knows that the staff asked me out to meet her colleague. Plus they would need to give you the documents for you to bring during delivery
Ok just called them heh. Have made my appointment to meet up with them... Yay, one more thing settled.
I feel baby hiccuping quite often but it's always in the bottom left area of my belly... Like near the left hip bone. Thought it meant that her head is down there. However at the last two checks, baby's head is actually in the top right of my belly, under my ribs! Gynae says generally hiccups are felt near the baby's tummy since we hiccup from our diaphragm, and that actually hiccups can be felt anywhere, doesn't really indicate position of belly. Feel cheated that i dont't have a way to tell where baby is now. Haha! Maybe for my girl, every time she hiccups she kicks with her foot. No idea!
Just wanted to share this funny story with my fellow mummies (:
Has anyone's baby already flipped upside down pending birth?
Oh yes.. I always feel that baby is moving or kicking bottom right or left area. Scan shows that baby is actually at top of my belly.. There was one week where the baby' head was at the bottom n i could feel the kicks around my naval buttom area. Going for scan tml again. Hopefully that baby is turning down though i am going for csec.
anyone got recs for maternity pads? havent found any reviews yet.
Maviss - I bought 2 types. one is those normal pad, but for overnight use. cause it seems more 'fang bian'. but my colleague said those real maternity pad (using string type) are softer so you will feel more comfortable. cause you will have a wound there if it's natural delivery. So I also got 1 pack of that. if I really find it better, will get hubby or my sister to buy more after I give birth.
