Just want to check.
Can we still go CNY Visitation during pregnancy / confinement?
Am expecting to deliver during the CNY period though.
Abit concerned on this...
I think best is to stay at home if you are doing confinement during CNY .
Because you are consider "dirty" during this period of time and some people "PANTANG" if you visit their houses . Mouth dont say but heart not happy .
I did my confinement during CNY this year, so my relatives came over and visit me instead . And baby get lots of Ang Pows ...
I also give birth during the CNY but two yrs ago.....when I was in the hospital, no one visited me....except hubby....
and no one frm my hubby's family side visited me at alll.....only some of my colleagues & hubby's colleagues
My mum came over to help me, and my sister visited me during the CNY....so I guess it depends on family, some of them very pantang one.....so you no choice but to follow
Same as mum Phoebii, i had my confinement during CNY that is 2 years back.
I stayed at home thru the CNY only waiting for ppl to visit me. If not wrong, visitor(s) will not enter your bedroom coz it consider 'dirty'.
To be on the safe side, just stay at home if you r doing confinement.
during pregnancy, of cos can!
but if during confinement, it really depends on individual. i think if CNY falls on the 1st 2 weeks after you delivered, then mayb your family will expect you to stay at hm? but i think if is towards end of your confinement, i think is okay to go.
and if your confinement is very strict, as in totally cannot bath, cannot wash your hair, hw to go home visiting?
there is no right or wrong, can or cannot. it all depends on you and your family whether your are comfortable with it.
thanks alot, mummies...
I guess i better stay home then..
Not to be inconsiderate...
Then what if delivering in the 3rd or 4th day of CNY, can i still visit on the frist 1-2 days of CNY?
And i think i have a wedding dinner to attend before CNY.
Still contemplating whether I should go...
i'm glad i dont't have to go coz extended family w/lots of kids...save $$$
