Joanne> Good to do first round of sterilizing first hehe then after that maybe tie up the things you wrap in a clean plastic bag or ziplock first. Kiasu and being excited is good.. I think my nesting instinct is too strong.. I also sterilized once through for all the baby bottles and breast pump parts.
Last night I woke up in the middle of night and couldn't sleep in the end today I didn't go to work.. too tired. Baby was kicking throughout last night =p But I just slept slightly more than usual and then whole day until now I am washing baby clothes or packing the house.. cannot stop!
mama_aki, my nesting instinct is also very strong! i just feel happy looking at the cot, picturing my girl in it. lol.
then after the cot, i moved on to the sterilizer. i didnt know i have to sterilize the sterilizer before using and my hubby laff at me.. and somemore he thinks i'm kiasu -___-"
he says he can always take it out when i'm back from hospital.. moreover if baby on bf, dont need sterilizer so early. bleah. whatever!!!
wah irene, you even have a duo breastpump passed down, that's good! if its usable, can save alot of $$$ .
i dont really wake up at nite to go toilet. but then nowadays, when i walk, i feel like pee-ing! the urge to pee is like always there!! haha.
and this morning, i woke up with slight pain on my fingers and toes... the joints are aching. i've been flexing my fingers regularly since i woke up.. and i'm afraid its water retention. but then again, no signs of water retention, just aches.
I didn't attend any antenatal classes. I want to check how to count contraction intervals?
I read its first contraction to the start of 2nd contraction, right?
So good no water retention. My leg is swollen like pig leg. Ppl can tell sigh. Haha Joanne becoz baby head is pressing on the bladder. So if walk alot the peeing feel will be felt n like urgent type. But go toilet release onli a few drops hahahha
Stjt, you bought the style very cheap. Half price compare to spore.
Agreed with Joanne that Irene got alot of things being hand down. Hahaha mine onli mostly clothes.
My pevic pain had reduced which I also dont know y. A good thing at least I can walk comfortably. But my Braxton hicks is getting more often n breathless too. Do you ladies have such experience too?
when i felt the ache on my fingers and feet, i immediately checked if they swell.. and then i asked hubby to check and wear my shoes to confirm. but all okay (*keeping fingers crossed*) but when i clenched my fist, i feel the ache and pain.
yes yes, i get braxton hicks (esp. when walking) and slight cramps, and i feel breathless at times. its kinda uncomfortable, just like last nite i couldnt lie down watching tv, and had to sit up straight.. otherwise i'm like breathing very hard, gasping for air.
tahan.. another 4weeks +. already 35 weeks +!! will see my baby this saturday.. and i wonder hw much wt she gained (gynae gg to nag).
XBB, yes, you time your last contraction to your nx contraction. apparently, i was told that you should go to hospital when frequency is more than once in 5mins or unless you cannot tolerate the pain and need pain relief early.
Stjt, think the breast pump won't spoilt so easily. So you got a good deal
Joanne, me too. Yd nite I have to sit up straight then I will feel better. If not lying down like the room dont have enough air for me. Now I understnad when ppl having asthma. Really very miserable.
Actually I dont know how contractions felt like? Will it be painful? Is it similar like Braxton hicks?
i've asked the same question before, how do contractions feel like?
ppl tell me.. you WILL KNOW IT WHEN IT COMES COS IT IS SO PAINFUL!!!
dont think its like BH, cos BH dont hurt.. just uncomfy. but for contractions, we will feel the pain intensified.
Wow if like stjt mentioned, BH getting frequent also not a good sign too.
Mama_aki, how do you sterilize the breast pump parts
Joanne, how to sterilize the sterilizer? have not open my sterilizer yet..
Joanne/Huafen, yea! i am considered lucky to have big items pass down... no need to spend a few hundreds on pump.. hehe
Huafen, Yes! Recently i felt that the BH getting more frequent and causing breathless especially at night and making me so uncomfortable.
i have not sterilize my sterilizer. but i saw that in my avent sterilizer, they gave 2 packets of sachets, citric acid for sterilizing.. intending to ask my hubby to do that cos i'm lazy to read the instructions heh.
yup Avent uses sachets.. they got instruction inside..
for piegon they dont't need to use sachets ..also got instruction inside..
anyone going for maternity photoshoot?
i'll be going for mine this weekend or next weekend. just decided and got to hurry.. in case baby comes out early haha.
mama_aki, i think i was given this cot. IKEA | Baby | Cots | SNIGLAR | Cot
i went to the mothercare at harbour front just now, SO MANY PPL! so lost, dont know what to buy. haha!
will be going tomorrow in the day, hope their will be lesser ppl plus shorter queue.
I won't be taking any maternity shoots. May be will onli self take a few shots n keep it as memory
