This is a discussion on EDD April 2011 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; for full month, i wanted something different too. but i think both my mum & mother in law prefer bengawan solo vouchers ...
for full month, i wanted something different too. but i think both my mum & mother in law prefer bengawan solo vouchers cause there are many outlets .. it will be easier for relatives to go exchange for what they want.
For full month, I think I will be gettig those gift boxes. now onli headache about venue. sigh
coz my aunt will be temp taking over my unit as her house renovating. So most prob I can't do it at my own house. Not appropriate to do at my mum house too. N my parents in law also dont like the idea of holding it at their place too. Gosh!
applebreeze, i'm so excited for you too! gosh.
i've been thinking of the baby shower cakes as well.. my colleagues keep telling me they dont want bengawan solo -___-"
but that is the most convenient way.. just need to post the vouchers to them and they can collect anytime.
i am also headache about the location. i'll probably split mine into 2, one for myself and my family, the other for my inlaws becos' their immediate family is already too many ppl to be all squeezed in my house.
any good ideas on where to get good baby shower cakes?
where area you stay??
Wow Applebreeze! So happy your baby Makalay will be in your arms soon!
Hi Huafen, if I bring my own pad I tell them huh? Cos when they open they will charge you already right?? I saw on the Kandang Kerbau Hospital website asked us to bring 2 swaddle blanket and 2 sets of vest, mittens and booties. Which CDA bank did you choose? I'm tempted with Stand Chart..
Joanne.. Originally I very firm on no epidural.. Now I am tempted too.. I see Huafen so cool in the delivery suite still can facebook somemore! Think will try not to have but if cannot tahan will ask for it. Hi-5!! My boss told me on Tuesday my promotion also confirmed! So from next month onwards I getting more pay without going to work.. hehehe... Happy!
Now I sleep until 10 plus 11 plus everyday at home.. hehehe.. Then my hubby so sad he go work alone, cos he drives me to work usually..
Hi Pumpkin, I think taking in protein is good too. If you can't tahan milk maybe soy milk or beancurd? I crave for tau hway few weeks ago and Eunice grew very big..
Stjt your boy so cute! Maybe mei mei too small cannot play with her toys also .. I'm sure with mama got more toys at home he will be happy too..
i am thinking of holding at my house and split into 2 sessions also.. one for relatives (both sides) and the other for friends and colleagues.
my in law suggested to have it at her house.. i find it abit troublesome thou... although her house much bigger.
any caterers to recommend?
Hi Kchiah, you have someone to help you with confinement?
I think for the first few weeks it's about adjusting to each other, baby and mummy. Give yourself some time, I'm sure you will do very well! Jiayou jiayou!!
Today I got no pain, cramps again... I am still waiting.. I was very naughty just took durians. But so craving for it and it's in season :P
Wow so happy for this thread starter, applebreeze , finally the date is fixed n hey applebreeze, you will be holding your baby soon.... Congrats!
Hi Huafen, how about doing it in a chalet? Then no need to clean also??
I saw cute cupcakes at the expo baby fair, www.sweetestmoments.com.sg
I'm thinking of splitting into multiple sessions at my place, cos my place is super small. I'm comparing the price, either get from sweetestmoments or I will DIY.. Phoon Huat's muffin mix is very nice, then can ask my guest to DIY decorate their own muffins! hehehe..
wow i really have to say, this thread is moving so fast! hahaha. which is good!!
luckymum, hi^5! such a happy thing to know more $$ coming in right haha.. esp since we got another mouth to feed lol. and happened at a time i didnt expect, cos' spending 4 mths out of office and previously i couldnt perform part of my job due to pregnancy as well. but thankfully, boss is kind and understanding!
wow, but eunice is already 3.5kg, must try not to take durians already. i've been craving but holding back, scared to put on weight, and scared baby put on wt as well.
i've been feeling so much cramps today that i'm wondering if i'll pop this weekend hahaha.. think too much. but ppl around me still say my tummy not low enough and so small, dont look like i'm gg to deliver.. oh well.
i think i'm 90% going for epidural hahaha. unless my labour is so fast like when i'm in hospital already 4cm dilated or something, then probably i'll opt against it. can only PRAY for fast and smooth delivery
My confinement nanny is my sis . She is not a prof, just 2nd time doing this. 1st time for my Sis in law, then now me . I prefer someone that related. Both mum n in-law can't do for me so no choice I ask my Sis.
Ha ha you craving for durian is ok just dont over eat. That time I was craving for Mr Bean . Take care ya.
luckymum, i do bake as well in the past (have not been baking for eons) and keke, you can see some of my cupcakes under www.buttercupcakeshop.blogspot.com which i did in the past.
i have not been baking for longgggg time and it did cross my mind if i should bake my baby shower cupcakes as gifts, since i did it for my own wedding as well. but i dont think i'll have the energy during confinement. too tiring!!! cleaning up is a hassle as well and since we shouldnt touch water, i totally abandoned the idea.
Hi Joanne, actually different people got different labour process ... That time my dilation at 4cm already pain like hell, n wait until fully dilate is 3-4hrs later. Some people got fast dilation after 4cm. So I think you see whether you can take the pain then you decide on Epi, or ask your doc first when he do viginal examination.
Yah I thank God as I am getting my PB and growth bonus this month and next month will have more pay also. Hehehe.. I'm thankful and is feeling very blessed!
I was trying to control since yesterday.. dont I gave in!! Hehehe...
Yah my tummy dont look low too.. But if you really pop this weekend remember to update us first .. We will pray for you too! It's possible .. My boss's second baby the contraction was not severe, but was 5 min apart consistant, they even manage to park nicely,walk into the hospital to find 4cm dilated! hehehe...
Aiyoh JOanne you're an artist !!! Your cupcake looks so beautiful and nice!!!
You do buttercream icing?? and handmade the flowers yourself?? OMG...
Wow, this thread is really going fast man.... Thanks to all mummies for your blessings!! I still need to go buy newborn milk powder just in case got no milk. Any brands to recommend? As for baby shower, we will have to split it up cos my hubby's family is too big cant fit all into our house. So 1 at our place and 1 at my in laws place... Sunday is so nearing... Gosh can feel the adrenaline pumping in my blood. Haha... Told hubby that before we admit, go for supper first. Cos the experience on last admission to hospital for false labour, my stomach was growling and i had heartburn somemore cannot eat.... you guys can go to this website and have a look at the baby shower cakes... it's kinda nice too... www.papamama.com.sg
Wishing applebreeze a smooth delivery this Sunday!
More babies more!
Hmmmm I heard it's not recommended to take beancurd . Ive been taking beancurd milk only cos doctor dont't recommend I take milk due to gastric. I'm taking calcium supplements instead.
Sian why I no special cravings . Had tom yam fish noodle for lunch....wau lau blood sugar damn high. My mum suspect the soup based is probably high in sugar level.
joanne! i am impressed by your baking skills and decorations.. so nice and pro! makes me feels like baking!
Try the baby shower package from Sweet Moments.. Nice packaging and customized baby card.. Prices quite reasonable too.. They had a booth at the recent expo fair and they gave voucher. 1 box free with every 10 boxes.. you can visit their website to chk it out..
wow heehee i like it when the thread moves so fast! was so busy just now doing handover, finally completed!
thank you irene n luckymum on the compliments of my cupcakes. haha. i used to spend alot of time baking out of passion, and started selling cos' my family simply cannot finish the cakes. but i stopped baking for a long time due to work already. nx time we can exchange recipes and ideas !!
actually i heard from my colleague beancurd not recommended due to the "glue" used for hardening the beancurd. and also, beancurd contains high level of female estrogen hormones that can caused baby boys to be more feminine. but i am not very sure if these are true.. i still take beancurd occasionally but i always ask for no sugar!
XBB, i already start ignoring the sugar level but still eat moderately cos' i think i'm gg to be due soon.. dont eat, later confinement will be another nitemare, so poor thing.. haha.
kchiah, my antenatal class instructor said if already above 4cm, its quite a waste of $$$ to go for epidural cos' you already suffered half the pain.. haha. i'm really not sure, if can tahan, of cos will try not to take epidural.. hopefully we all can do it!!!
applebreeze, jiayou okie!!! ya.. any mummies pop over the weekend must inform us!!!
