so good irene! sigh I hAve onli one day of leave which I will take on 29 dec for my shopping spree. Haha
I hereby wishing all mummies a Merry Christmas n Happy New Year! Hope you all will have a blessed health in the coming 2011 with all our cute little ones joining the world soon.
Huafen83: thanks! feeling better already, but apparently being pregnant slows down recovery, and I still feel the gastric pains once in a while.
ariesgirl: Hi! My EDD actually abit confusing. Initially my gynae told me its 11th April, but then she wrote 7th April. But during my detail scan at 20th week, the sonographer said 5th April. So usually when ppl asked, i'll say early April.
Hi all Mummies,
Wow feeyona, we have the same EDD... April 11th... Here's wishing all mummies a great Christmas and New Year... And to all our babies inside us, wish them grow up healthy and 'guai guai'....
Hi Irene, I going the isetan pte sales to buy baby stuff n see see look look other things.
hi feeyona, I also have gastric pain at times. I check with my Gynae he says it's becoz my uterus is quite high so my wei in the end seems to be smaller n the acid in my wei to be considered more than before. But unless it get worst then have to inform him again. So once a while I will feel slight gastric pain.
As for Edd, will change every time we go see our Gynae coz depends on the growth of the baby. So my Gynae told mi just stick to the first Edd that was given to me. Hehe. I hope won't e an April fool day baby can . Coz mine is 3rd April hahahaha very risky.
hehe. think EDD just a rough guide.. mine all along is 15th april.. my birthday is on 10th april.. was wonder will it be good if baby was to have the same birthday as me? hmmm but i prefer not.. hopefully he can come out in early april then he can celebrate my birthday with me! haha
Huafen, hehe icic.. you go there see got any good buys anot..
Hope I can get allthe things I want from there hehehehehehe
Now getting lazier to go out .
Hahaha I dont mind having an April Fool's baby thou. Imagine on that day you call your friends and family telling them you r delivering soon or just delivered, they might not believe you! :b
Im secretly hoping its an April Fool's baby.
Huafen83 so did your gynae give you any medication or just leave it?
Hahaha but will feel sad if they dont believe it hahahaha
nope never give me med. Coz mine is mild. N I also try not to take med unless really necessary coz they say not really good for baby. As they also will be taking bit of it. So I try not to eat too full. So eat just nice. Since all along I been breaking up my meals. Hehe small n more meals.
So how much weight have you gain so far, feeyona?
Yea I tried eating smaller and more meals, but sometimes cannot control the hunger. Hahaha!
Erm, about 5-7 kg.
Hahahaha ya I understand. So eat when you feel hungry hehe. Mi about the same weight gain as you
hello i am back. feeling better after 3 days of rest and sleep. lost almost 2kg in 3 days, my poor baby must have suffered with me!
just received xmas presents from my colleague, its a gift for my girl. haha. even mummy's present also became her present!
hereby wishing all mummies a smooth pregnancy and enjoy the next few mths of peace with your hubbies! enjoy your xmas celebration heehee.
Hi Joanne, glad to hear you r feeling better .
dont worry about the weight loss. More weight will kicks in soon.
Yup receive a few presents from my colleagues also will be useful when my baby boy is born. Sooner or later we mummies will have lesser presents n our baby have more hahah. Even not born already have presents waiting for them. Haha
yup my hubby is catching more sleep n rest as much as he can now. Haha. Coz he sacred he will have lesser rest after baby is borned. Coz may have to serve 2 person by then. Haha. Let's enjoy our last few mths of 2 ppl life to the fullest.
Hope you all will enjoy this Christmas nite
hello all mummies!
im very new here, so i hope im at the right place & not intruding or disrupting any major conversations ya!
my baby will be due around end-Apr 2011... & till now im still pretty much confused/in a dilemma over some matters:
1) is there a need or is it a must to have a confinement lady?
my concern is budget ... cos its really not cheap... asked those agencies, the price is in the range of about 2K, & if add the addt cost of them going marketing..... omg... i really dont want the spend too unnecesarily. was thinking to cater confinement food & request for mother in law's help, since i'll be staying with them.
my bathing part etc, probably will just buy the herbs myself & boil to bathe loh...
others too 'traditional' rules, i really might not follow....
really need some advise... does anyone know anyone & have any experience of 'surviving' the confinement period w/o help?
2) does anyone know of any good & nice massage ladies to do the post natal massage? & whats's the rate like? am really looking for something in the range of like probably $50/session.
also, i have been receiving comments that my tummy seems small, very small, too small for being 5 months preggy (well i admit, sometimes even i myself feels so)... but i really dont know y ... i havent had a big increase in appetite, but i still do just eat normal meals, take nutritious soups, etc (of cos, with the occassional snackings that i cant control)... from all my few check-up, i have only gained 2.2kg... last FA scanning done shows baby is growing all within range & gynae did not mention anything 'bad' about baby ... so i assume since gynae no say anything bad, it means so far so good right?
but i do get stressed & worried with all the comments... sadzz...
am really quite at a loss... would aprpeciate if the mummies or mummies-to-be out there to gimme some advises...

it's been long time not login to mummysg.
My EDD will be in april 2011 too, it's around Apr 1oth. But as I informed for 1st preggy the EDD could be earlier or latter, dont know, just wait and see happily ..^.^
Need info about confinement lady too, is it really needed?? what will she do??? also for post natal massage is it needed too??
My inlaw gave me tips for post natal soup tht can help for recovery even boost mommy's health, so think no need any massage or else.
@strawberryfen: my tummy also looks small for 6months preggy, but my gynae said the baby is ok with normal weight and so active.
So no need to worry, just enjoy it...^.^
MeRRy ChRistMaS & HaPpY HoLiDaYs, MOmS!!
hello all! hope you had a great holiday!
back at work today though i'm supposed to be on leave.. decided to come back and clear some work as i was on MC for 3 days last week.
my tummy is getting rounder and bigger, and i did quite a bit of housework yesterday, and found myself getting clumpsy cos' of the tummy getting into the way hahaha. and my girl reacts "violently" to the sound of vacuum cleaner! kicking and punching me harder these days that my tummy can vibrate.. my hubby is amazed by it lol.
strawberryfen, i think confinement lady is not essential, but definitely good to have cos' she'll help you to take care of baby so that you can recouperate and also will cook confinement food for you. if your mother in law can help you thru, then i believe that should be fine. i'm not getting any CL as well cos' i am staying with my parents, and my parents are against the idea of an outsider staying with us.. and my mum will cook for me, and my mother in law says she'll cook for me and ask my hubby to bring the food over to my place as well.. thank goodness my parents and in laws are really supportive and willing to help.
as for post natal massage, i have not search for one yet but i think i'll be getting someone from the house of javanese massage.. cos i frequent them before i got pregnant and like their massages, so i will probably just engage their masseur after i give birth. i am not sure of the prices though, but i think it should be around $50-$60 for an hr or so. but i do not know if it includes transportation to your house.
your weight gain seem little.. my weight gain is now at 6kg since i got preggie and i think most mummies here are about the same range. but everyone's different.. as long as your gynae commented that your baby is growing well and fine, of average size, i think there's nothing to worry. just try to eat healthy.
thanks luvjoanne & Clover88!
will have to discuss with hubby again for this CL thing. though it mayb abit tiring for me & mother in law if w/o the CL help, but i hope if we work hand in hand, we shld be able to survive... haha! of cos... provided my mother in law can tahan ...
i also dont know y my weight gain so little. but i admt i have not't been eating alot, just normal portions... no special cravings as well...
& at times if i reali eat too much, it just feels so uncomfortable & super bloated...
though FA scan shows baby growing all within range & gynae no mention anything bad about baby's growth.. but i guess just to play safe, nxt checkup, i'll bug my gynae again to confirm its all fine... its my 1st pregnancy, just hope all is just fine... *prayzzz hard*
for the massage thing, think i will continue to just check check around as well... hehe...
Clover88, i too heard 1st preggy EDD will be earlier... im like kinda counting the days & so looking forward to baby's arrival!
new year is coming... so looking forward to the new role in life that is coming ahead!!
I also won't be getting CL as I find them quite costly. I am also glad that my mum will be helping me to do my confinement.
As for massage lady, I will be getting one as helps to "make" my tummy disappear fast too hahaha.
Hi strawberryfen, as long as your baby is growing well n at the correct weight, do not worry so much. May be your baby is absorbing most of the intake of your food which is good. My tummy till now also looks small but I already had gained so far 5.5 kg. So dont worry, when you go for your next check up, you can ask your Gynae all the qn that bothers you.
Yup kind of worry if I deliver early, also dont know when should I start to take leave
Hi luvjoanne, may be your gal never hear the sound before tats y is sAcred of it. my boy also turn "violent" when I watching movie. Too loud for him I think so I have to keep touchig my stomach to calm him down hahahaha
thank you Huafen83! nxt checkup i will ask my gynae ! haha!!
so far my baby ok... movements still alrite... haha... just thinking sometime maybe he practicing 无影手or脚 inside... haha!!
Hi all MTBs,
I saw that many of your EDD is around April 11.. so is mine!! Hope we can share more wonderful preggy moments together..btw, to strawberryfen..yup people have commented that my tummy looks small too for 5months but people said it will ballooned when it hits 7 or 8 months.
Btw, any of you working full-time here?
Hahaha they been practising their kong Fu inside. Think will feel even harder when they grows bigger. Sometimes can be non stop for a few mins. I sometime have to stop him when I going to sleep. If not will be never ending. Haha
Yup I am working full time now. N my work peak is at the last trimester. I dont know how I can get over the tiredness. Abit stress about it.
Same here, my work peak is at the last trimester too. Ive been worrying about it ever since. I have informed my female superior I was expecting since I was 3 months along.. she said that my workload will be lesser in the new year but when I get to know recently, my jobscope is still as heavy as this year.
I dont know how I will cope as my job requires a lot of standing and walking around..
so have you bought your pram or cots? I'm thinking of buying it tomorrow...
oh and im expecting a baby boy..haha so excited that I dont know what to discuss first. and this boy has been kicking up a fuss every single night.
by the way i have gone thru the list of items you've sent me, i think you missed out on the detergent for washing of baby's bottles
hope to see you at isetan tml!!
