A big HIs to all mummies,
a little intro about me , i m expecting my #1 . Having some mix feeling of anxiety n disappointment n hope to find friends to chat with n make new friends
Welcome to this forum. I am also a first time mum...and there are a few of us who are first time mum....and a couple of 2nd, 3rd time mum who can share their experiences w us.
Are you working currently? Have you purchased all the baby stuff, preparing for baby's arrival???
Are you guys going back to work force after baby is born? Are you engaging a maid, or sending your baby to infant care or asking parents/in-laws to help out??
I will be getting my mum to take care of my baby girl when she's born, and she will be helping out with my confinement duration, so I be saving lots on this area. If my mum have plans to go back to workforce then I may plan to put my baby girl in childcare when she's 18 months or older....
I be going back to work after 3 months of maternity leave and space out my remaining 1 month leave thereafter.. scared take too long employer not happy also...
Infant care is too expensive and Im worried about how they will take care of her without our pressence there.. I believe you all must have heard some stories out there what they might do to your baby -_-
Seems like most of us will be going back to the work force after baby born....me included. Sometimes I think it's so poor thing for the baby....but this is the phase everyone got to go thru.
The other day when I vistied my in laws for dinner, my mother in law asked me if I read story book to my baby. I say no, then she asked me is it b/c I dont have story book at home. She seems eager to buy for me to read to baby. I tell her I let baby listen to story on Utube. (bluff her one) Kekekeke
Do you guys read story book to baby?
My hubby and I talk to baby for a while at night when we are watching TV, and my hubby makes it a point to kiss my tummy before he leaves for work every morning these days. I think that is enuff right?
What about you guys? How do you guys communicate w baby?
It's your first baby so boy or gal should be happy. I wanted a girl but hubby wanted a boy...the gynae confirmed the baby gender on 20 wks and hubby so disappointed, but I so happy.
baby girl is good...will be closer to you next time...will always stand by mummy!!! Yeah!!!
I do communicate with my baby since the day I'm pregnant - 6 weeks! kiasu eh.... I will wish him good morning when i wake up... talk to him about the weather, my feeling, and "bad" talk about his dad... LOL~ when i sleep... I'll sing a goodnight song, i tell him i need to rest... ask him be a good boy no kicking.... *now... it seems to work... he'll be very active but... when i lay down and say... i goin to bed... he will stop... =P sometimes he accidentally KICK me... I will go like "WEI.... noty ar.. mummy wanna sleep ok?"... then he will stop *for the time being, it seems to work. hope it will last...
Last few weeks, i started to get my hubby to involve... make hubby touch my tummy and talk to the baby... most of the time, my baby will give response when my hubby tap my tummy and talk to him... he will be moving in my tum tum... *which make my hubby more motivated to do it every night and morning...
OH~ and.. welcome to the forum! =)

Pipilili: ya true since only #1 I wanna think positively can have #2 later on yr Hubby so sweet talk n kiss little bunny daily mine not daily .have you all think of baby name I m starting to think this coming weekend ..hmm so far I bought some diapers, hankies,booties , milk bottles only . Is there a need to buy bib? Time flies , Tom working again today is my off day n ending . Most of my baby items friends, relatives etc will pass me bit by bit
I have not't talk to my gal about weather before, mayb will try one day
Yr boy is hyperactive my galgal sometimes will kick me like sandbag when im hungry .
I was wondering is our Hubby thinking of getting bunnies to join them to play soccer so they wishing for boy ...
My cousin more excited than me when she knew mine is a princess she bought a few dresses already as she has one boy .
Recently feels very tired N backaching as the watermelon getting bigger . N sometimes feels the urge to pee, feeling terrible ....
I think hubby and I were super excited.... We have a list of names when i was 10 weeks! Immediately when my gynae confirms my baby gender... We have a name for him... *english name only... chinese name need to wait till when he's born...
Yeap~ he is one active boy... but sometimes he tends to be a little "diam-diam" inside but after my hubby do that "stimulation" thingy with him... he will be moving around .... i think he's gonna be a very PLAYFULLLLLLLLL one~
I bought a lot of stuff for my friends baby girl.... so envy .... * now everytime i walk pass those "BABY PRINCESS" shop.... i will be like... "SO unfair... BOY dont need wear clothes ar? all girl stuff" LOL~
you have msn or facebook? mayb can personal message me.... we can probably keep in touch and chat there... =)
Crazygal: nope I dnt have facebook or msn only occasionally pop in go chat n also just created this account today . I dnt know much about com /it stuff still learning ....
Looking forward for princess arrival cos recently too clumsy n tired
me too me too, always feel tired easily now and feel heavier too...when I told my mum, she gave me the disapproving look - like I shouldn't say such things, plus she will say last time she work till the day she give birth. She just bathe and go hospital to give birth...*duh*
But time has changed what!!
I am also waiting for items to be passed on.....so still waiting for items to be delivered to my pl by cousin who has a boy. But i think nvm , boy or girl - infant wear almost same also...no diff.
I left the naming of english names to my hubby so that he can play a part in this whole process. He hasn't given me any names yet.
My parents and in laws are also not going to participate in chinese names so I guess we have to DIY ourselves.
Feeling terrible just puke think mus b the fried rice I ate at10pm plus too oily
My Hubby also have not suggest any names yet
Pipilili: you r lucky that in laws not interfering in baby names I hope mine too cos I'm scare they will give me old fashion one haaaa
just drank a cup of hot milk hope can zzz well tom need to work
My in-laws are very old already, and I think they have gone thru alot of objection from other sister in laws prev and caused some unpleasantness so decided to leave us along. (my hubby last child)
My parents dont really care cos they feel that this is our child, so we should decide on their names.
I also puke the other day till I wet myself...I find that night time I feel more terrible than day. At night, somehow I will spit more saliva and feel more bloated.
both my parents and parents in law will not be interferin with our baby chinese name too... hubby and I will probably get some Master to give us a good name... =)
You girls still having nausea? I heard honey lemon works... =)
Hi all mummies, taken yr lunch I just had mine my Hubby n I r looking at Christian names hope by sun can choose one as for Chinese totally no idea.... My sister in law is passing me her baby cot n those yaolan with wheels . Yeah can save some $$$. Any of you feel yr fAce feature changed? Think I feel my nose a bit bigger eyes a bit smaller n looks ugly n my complexion is not so good now sometimes a bit moody over this.
Now that you mentioned about looks....
Overall I am fatter - which is supposed to be normal as we are pregnant. But my thoughts is 'how do I lose all these fats'
My complexion - generally ok but a few pimples along hairline. I suspect its the shampoo so decided to use shampoo that will make hair dry cos hair is now more oily. Pimples wise, everytime I put cold Hazeline snow on them, they decrease in size the next day.
The tip of my nose is red and round....which is really irritating!!
Stretch marks - although I cannot see them yet, I know I will have it cos I keep scratching my butt at night due to itchness.
Pipilili: ya me too my nose very fat n easily red my friends making fun of me saying like clown at least yrs is itch at butt even got stretchmarks can't see mine at tummy very itchy ...my complexion ever since preggy very oily n easily get pimples I m also worried about hw to improve my complexion n to lose those weight gained . Any idea anyone? My friends went slimming centre n post natal massage but I feel they look about the same .... N they spent so much $$$.
