This is a discussion on EDD May 2014 (maybe) within the Year 2014 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Miso maybe your lost weight is due to m/s? Try to eat in smaller meal to see if it helps? ...
Miso maybe your lost weight is due to m/s? Try to eat in smaller meal to see if it helps? Cos my gynae told me to do so to avoid bloatedness n overeat but I just have to eat the whole plate of rice to be satisfied but will suffer bloatedness after a full meal..
same here, love Mac filet O Fish burger and french fries.... not sick of it at all.... I'm almost 9 week, can see baby bump. But still not sure its tummy fat or baby bump.
Mostly wear dress to work for more comfort. anyone here start to buy maternity clothes already?
JA13 - maybe you're having twins!!??!! :P hehe yah next I will try the samurai burger... goodness my hubby was saying our baby really likes fastfood... I am someone who usually only eats fastfood twice a month or something... now it seems like I really love burgers hahaha
Miso - jiayou! you can do it! I know it's tough but hang in there! if eating big meals makes you puke (it makes me nauseous and bloated and get heartburn), continue snacking like you're doing... I'm also trying to "graze" more but it's hard at work cos I can't eat food at my desk - my company is very strict about this
winniemint - yah I just wear loose dresses and stuff to work... not hard cos usually I dont't wear figure-hugging stuff anyway Not sure about maternity clothes per se, I feel it's expensive and unnecessary? But I'm sure when I get to the last trimester I will balloon up and then cannot wear my usual clothes loh haha
excitedwifey - I m sure not twins! Haha.. last monday I went for vaginal scan get to see my baby forming n hear heart beat too! So excited n blissed.. but my gynae said it is still early to determine accurate EDD (est. 28 May14) so ask to go back on 26 Oct13 to confirm EDD. Ya I m gg to get myself more loose dresses cos I find it comfortable too..
Winniemint - not buying yet.. you gg to buy soon? I went to spring maternity to see the shorts it cost at 36.90 sgd per pc .. quite ex..
Hi girls, anyone facing constipation probs? Any safe remedies that i can take to relieve?
Today is my 3rd day of not poo-ing, feeling so miserable as before that i need to go daily.
Thanks ladies! I guess i will try to relax more now. Haha.. As for the meals n snacking, snack can't last long. I will get hungry very easily. But meals, even though i dont't feel full after finishing a meal (esp dinner), i will feel nauseous and puke my dinner. Oh well...
jojosnake, maybe you can try drinking formula milk for mothers? I have constipation problems before and it seems when i started on the formula milk, i go everyday. I read the contents of the milk n it contains Pro-biotics, so i guess thats what is making me go everyday. Of course only drink if you can stand the smell and taste of milk.
Hope it helps.
jojosnake - maybe eat more fruits and vegs like papaya and banana? Yah pregnancy brings about some constipation lol... for me I alternate between constipation and loose stools... not sure why but it's like that for me even prior to pregnancy... so yah.
Anyone eating ice-cream these days? I have craving but my mother in law says not good, too cooling
Have your heard of E.Excel products? I'm a mummy for a 5mths old baby. I've tried E.Excel products to prevent constipation plus gaining nutrition during my pregnancy. If you are keen on it, I can sell it to you. It comes in 30packs ($200), everyday you consume 1 pack. I guarantee you got no constipation anymore then your baby also can gain enough nutritions. I took it during 6mths pregnancy.
I bought some maternity bottoms at Carrano at Blk 185 Toa Payoh. The shop has been around for very long . Not as ex as maternity shop.
I bought 4 items for slightly above $100. Long pants suitable for wearing to work only at $34.90.
I heard loose stools is due to the prenavit vitamins we taking.. I have experienced diarrhea n loose stools last week for 1 whole week.. then my gynae ask me to avoid drinking milk n no fried food..
Hey gals, havent bought any maternity clothes yet since I can still wear my normal clothes.
I might need them after the next few months ..I dont get much constipation since I still 'go' as per normal every morning but my fruits intake have increased to about 3 servings per day compared to once a day last time..i dont really like vegetables so Im trying to my best to swallow more veggies...sighs..
excitedwifey- i do eat ice cream but limit myself to once a week, just like a treat on the weekend...
I crave for fillet O fish too.... and esp fries and hash brown.. I hope my baby will not turn out to be fast food junkie
xiongmao - same here... my hubby grew up eating junk food and I had to "wean" him off it when we started dating haha... now my baby seems to love fast food haha esp nuggets, fillet o fish and quarter pounder / mushroom swiss... thinking about these makes me drool LOL
Same here.. drooling too! Haha
So funny! I have been craving for MacDonalds too and within 1 week I can order delivery at least 2 times! there's one day I even ate twice in a day.. =X my hubby scolded me say its very unhealthy, I know too but just couldn't help it at that time! :P
Luckily the craving stop after 1 week. Now change to eating food with heavy taste else I'll feel nauseated.
ooo.... mushroom swiss.... yummy
I am a new mummy of 8weeks pregnancy. May I know did you carry on using your facial care product? I am quite anxious over the chemical issue. Please advise.
I think applying anything shld be fine. I am more concern with things consumed.

I had to tell my husband to stop using his new body foam as it was agitating my nose... luckily I had an acceptable alternative for him in my inventory, haha
Hi zzb8200 - i'm still using all my usual skincare products... think unless they're very strong chemically (like acid peels) or causing you to react non-favourably, should be okay to continue... in doubt can check with your gynae
OMG the talk about mushroom swiss and samurai burger. Yummm
I am still experiencing bad bloat which apart from making me feel uncomfortable, it sticks my upper part of tummy really out and feel very conscious as I dont intend to tell my company until much later.
any one has that? This is my first pregnancy.
I am continuing with my skincare as usual as i think the exposure is miminal and topical.
ebichan I m experiencing it now.. upset! I just took a sausage muffin n my stomach bloated like mad n is now very very big like a balloon.. it is my first pregnancy too.. I also dont understand y so bad? But now I know I m not alone.. dont like the bloatedness!!
Ya I m still using skincare n etc.. I think it should b fine too.
Hi all, I'm a second time mother. First child is 13mths old. Currently I'm now 7 wks. Any September 2012 mummies here?
sigh really hate e morning sickness. Vomitted 10 times at work yesterday n had to tk urgent leave. Want to cover up also cannot. So obvious the whole world can tell alrdy . Now still in bed. Didn't eat anything at all except 100plus. Seems like alot of mummies here like fast food. N those mummies who dont't have MS you should b happy. It's really not a nice feeling. For me no oily no fried no gravy stuff. Much be Kway teow soup. All the food that I used to eat in my 1st pregnancy now cannot b eaten for this pregnancy. Hence they say it maybe different gender (1st is a boy) but seriously it doesn't matter whether its a boy or gal as long as the child is healthy. Really enjoy motherhood. Very tiring but satisfying. I m still breastfeeding though trying to reduce cos gynae advises so-but my son is addicted to my breasts. Hehe
Facial products r fine. Just dont't dye your hair.
