This is a discussion on April 09 MTBs! within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Welcome shaynamommy! Where are you going for the photoshoot??...
Where are you going for the photoshoot??
Sob...me too have lots of awful stretch marks. REally envy those (some of my gfs) who do not have a single mark! dont't think they will go away like disappear but probably lighten only. My sis-in-law still have hers to show after 20 years! So what do you think are the chances of them disappearing???
Sugarcookie, i tried those anti-cellulite cream for my first preggie and maybe I was not as "hardworking" to apply it, my cellulite still clings onto me more tightly than my baby, ha ha ha..

sugarcookie, here's what I think about the effectiveness of putting our used shirt near our baby.
1. It does work most of the times to calm and trick the baby into thinking that mommy is still beside him. This is provided baby is well-fed and comfortable AND tired but still doesn't want to sleep. Even after baby falls asleep and I successfully put him down on the bed/rocker, I still put the shirt beside his cheeks and so far he managed to sleep for almost 2 hours. yay..
2. However, if baby is crying for hunger, discomfort, wet diaper, it does not work at all. They get angrier trying to trick them.
By the way, I realise that I can see a very obvious vein on Kaydes' head. I dont know to call it vein or blood vessel or what. Is this normal? I do see other veins too... But they are not as protuding as this one.
Sorry I am full of problems and full of S**T... lol
As for stretch mark, I am going to slimfit to try out their stretch mark removal program. I called them today, but have yet to fix an appt. Anyone interested in going together?
I want to get rid of my stretch marks too but no one to babysit . Let me know if the program is effective!
BTW, I was supposed to go for my followup OBS appt tomorrow. Supposed to be in May but I postponed it because my period came so I changed it to tomorrow. And guess what?? My period is here again! In just 3 weeks! Is it normal for the cycle to be like that after birth??? And is it ok to keep postponing this appt??? It is just for a regular pap smear test right?
ys.. block nose and a lot of phlegm. been that since sat and now still.. this wk dont even dare to bring her down to infant care which i suspect she was infected there.
so worried about her not able to breath also.. but did not really monitor that closely. heard that as long as baby can drink, pass motion , shld be ok.
will be looking for a nanny now.. so poir thing to see infant taking medicine (though i think she loves it as its sweet. hahah).
btw, so the 6 in 1 is to be taken on which month? i was told by doctor that actually if we took 6 in 1, we can skip one jap of the Hep B. so confuse.
hi. any baby with tremble legs occassionally? i saw that vivien (my baby) tremble legs a few days a day, is it normal??
aiyah, didn't go in the end. Could not find anything decent to wear and realised that I have to do my own styling. Hubby say that baby would be sleeping also and it would be so boring, so would probably wait for another 2 months when he is more alert. Will keep you updated.
Sugar Cookie, at least you are not alone. My period came after a month from giving birth and then in 2 weeks time, I got the period again! rushed to the gynae immediate and asked him whether I would bleed to death,, he said no , just monitor my situation. He explained that would be like dat one cos hormonal messed up mah. Anyway, he didn't give me hormonal pills cos I still bf sometimes. Would be trying to take the EYS pak foong pills this week and probably supplement with evening primrose oil.
Hi all, finally brought Javier to pediatrician today for the jabs. still dont trust the polyclinic cos today I also realised that my 5 yo didn't take the pneumoccal vaccine as well. pediatrician didn't believe me and even asked to see my ger's healh booklet. anyway, I dont remember that the polyclinic advised us then that there were optional shots (as advised by CJMom) and hence I was shocked to realise that my dear daughter was "shortchanged" after all these years. some of the risks could have been avoided in the first place.
BTw, I thought it would be a good initiative for April mummies to share with each other what we learnt from the docs/PDs re baby care. here's my take from what I learnt today from the pediatrician visit:
1. Kids going to infant care need to take the pneumoccal shots at 2 mths cos high risk environment
2. As I am bringing my baby to malaysia for hols next week, pediatrician then gave rota vaccine today. also, advise us to bring the steam steriliser. cannot just use sterilising tablets or hot water cos too young.
3. green poo not a big problem as long as poo is soft (my boy poo once in 2 days and poo's green
4. do give panadol straight away after vaccination. i'm stil giving every 6 hours today to alleviate the pain tho fever not high
5. put baby on tummy for 2 mins every day to let him exercise his neck muscles
would add on other items when i remember...
By the way, I went to Slimfit for the consultation today . And I also sign up . Will let you all know if it is effective or not. But according to the consultant, stretch mark is a skin problem from the inner layers of our skin, not surface, so creams might not be able to help that much. Also, some(most) creams contains steriods so it is not recommended if breastfeeding. Anyway, I am a lazy person ... my creams all sitting in my toilet watch me pee, poo and shower... and I never even bother to apply... lol
If this Slimfit one is effective, I will let you all know. But it will take a while cos the sessions are done once every two or three weeks. That is to allow the inner skin to heal before the next session, so no point doing it too frequent the consultant said
ya....was at kidslink at chua chu kang the singapore post building there =(
but though its long you will feel relieved when you see the doc cause he is very concerned about the baby maybe thats y he take his own sweet time to ask questions regarding baby to understand the situation better =D
