I was at NEX's Cold Storage last night and all the Huggies diapers are gone. Left only one L size Huggies.
I wonder if Motherhood Expo's promotion is as attractive. I'm very lazy to travel all the way there and to squeeze with everyone else.
Yep, that's what my friend (mother of 5 months old boy boy) told me. She bought for medela freestyle duo pumps. Apparently I bought the wrong adapters as I use Avent BP. If you still want the adpaters I still have, or maybe wait till you bought your BP (medela or avent)first.
cat, you gained so little only??? 1.1 since preg? i gained like 9kgs already T_T and my belly button popped out already everyday im like poking it for fun.. i used to have a very deep set button :P
engel, do you use the stretch marks cream? each time i feel the itch coming i will apply the cream and the itch subsides. i do hope i do not become "zebra" like my husb calls my bum area T_T
shyinymint. i try to relax since around 6pm each day so i will gradually doze off at around 10.. lately maybe due to lack of sleep or the fact that ive been running around, i slept pretty OK.
yesterday i was standing at the diapers aisle. but i really have zero idea on which diapers to get for my baby!~
oh! and i think having our own mummysg aug edd facebook page is a good idea!
Sorry for not coming back to you. Pls let me check whether that is the adaptor before I purchase from you k.
I am already in the Aug EDD facebook, once you have joined, I will intro myself to you. Hee hee...There are alot of mummies inside....you guys will like it. But sometimes you cannot catch up, like me ...so I turn to forums when I get lost!
If you trust my friends - you can try Goon/Nepia which are very popular in Japan. And anyway it's only $14 now...might as well try it. Original price $16 for Nepia. I am also first time mum and I am having baby gal, so am worried if my poor galgal got backside rash!!! But I still bought the nappy rash cream, just in case!!
They say wont have rash if use Goon/Nepia - so I will try and find out. Kandang Kerbau Hospital use Pampers NB. As long as the inside lining is soft - I think it's ok.
But I am so tired these days that I keep napping (cos not working).
I giving birth at Mount E. My belly button is only half out...only the top..LOL..i wonder why also..=.=
OK! I added
im expecting a baby girl also, so quite worried she got "golden butt" :P I'm not sure my hospital uses which brand though.. thats why gotta wait and see
already gotten myself a huge jar of vaseline in stock all ready to combat!
Hi, may I know y need the conversion kit for medela breast pump? Medela breast pump come together with milk bottle, isn't it? So sorry.. I really stupid.. as first time mum..
I'll be going to expo now... Hehe... Think today not many special items..as goon diapers only for yesterday ?
Jocelyn: Goon diapers and Nepia is on the right hand side once you enter the hall....both are found on the same stretch.
The diapers are for the 3 days...not just yesterday. I am KIASU so I go yest. Cos I want to try out the brands since my friends were singing praises about these diapers!
About the Avent Conversion Adaptor:
Ok, I heard you can put the milk bottle to Medela pump and then pump the milk into the bottles directly...That's what I heard, but I need to confirm it with Avent Sales/Info counter cos I myself also not sure exactly.
Ic... Thanks .. I expect later will have lot of ppl going there... Think buy 2 packs s diapers...
Hi pipilili.. i am also delivering at Kandang Kerbau Hospital, TPS.. EDD 25th Aug but I am going to do c-section so prob will do it sometime early aug.. I am a coward-mummy-to-be haha..
Did anyone do the 3D scan? KK charges $300+ for a 3D scan is it considered expensive? I asked doc if got 4D scan she says 3D & 4D scans are the same ... -_-"
Anyone can share or describe how a 3D picture looks like? Can we really see the features and even hair?? I was thinking if it looks more or less like those black and white ones we see during our routine gynae checkups then I will give it a skip.. :P
So far i only bought baby clothings coz all look so CUTE!! But gotta admit that there are more things for girls then boys.. Bought totally nothing else, hubby says gotta start getting the necessities REALLY SOON... So far got friends giving breast pump, baby clothings, baby cots, car seat, baby bottles and stroller.. but so lazy havent picked anything up yet.
I am getting abit restless lately, like walk abit also get tired easily.. appetite not so good as I go into 3rd trimester.. like always not hungry, even if I eat also get full easily.. but stomach still growing bigger and bigger..
After each meal esp dinner, i always feel like the stomach is so stretched that its like gonna burst!
Everyday go work also got this mad impulse to tell my boss i wanna work part-time, or even quit! I just feel like staying at home to countdown to Aug...
Baby very active, esp during the night.. sometimes can literally "feel" him "move" from one side to another when i am touching my stomach.. iz a weird yet wonderful feeling
You guys got your confinement lady already?
Got a question to ask you ladies.. do anyone of you still drink coffee? Or it is advisable to stop now esp coming to 3rd trimester?? Read here and there, some says OK some says NOT OK.. make me super confused.
For the 3D/4D scan, some mummies say can do it at Radlink. You may want to check out. I didn't do the scan cos I am a worry wort so my hubby doesn't want me to get affected. My gynae at TPS said that I can do it in a normal GP clinic at SGD 89-100. Hope the info helps
I drink Kopi-O daily morning from 2nd tri onwards....So far no contractions, etc. Should be ok cos I still drink other fluids and always thirsty so need to drink lottsa water.
Actually now then I know being pregnant and working is not easy too....govt should put a policy in pl so that mummy can have option to work part time for 9 mths in the same company and company cannot make them redundant. (esp for mummy who are older or have a difficult pregnancy)
Yest, I suddenly woke up cos baby moving too much inside me at night. Ai yoh. and weather so hot till I had a hard time going to sleep.
I eat normally as pre preg days but just more rice. (I take only 1 small soup bowl of rice max) But I need to have tea time snacks - fruits, or burger...etc etc...cos I go hungry around 4-6pm.
pipilili.. yes i take my daily kopi-ice every mornings when i have b/f, never take will feel "shortchanged".. but i realised i cannot take coffee after 3pm now, there was once i learnt the lesson the "Hard Way" took coffee at 6pm, and it kept me (and a super-more-hyper-then-usual-baby inside) awake until 4am!!!
Actually my boss was super nice, I broke the news that I was pregnant when I was still under probation and she was super supportive and told me not to worry as it is something to be happy about.. I was worried that I will not get any confirmation initially! So that is why I die-die cannot disappoint her...
I will google this Radlink clinic and try to make appt for the 3D scan.. I actually read on this forum that Thomson Medical Center or Camden only charges about $200+ for this 3D/4D scans.. was abit surprised Kandang Kerbau Hospital so ex$$, thought govt hospital shld be cheaper?
I try to avoid rice at night now as i feel super bloated and stretched to the max at tummy if i have rice during dinner.. I only eat 3 meals a day and no snacks at all in between, but still gain like 7-8kg till date. very tragic to look into mirror and see bigger bums and waist. But i like to study my round round stomach! Hubby feels very excited..elated everytime he sees my stomach growing rounder and bigger, somehow he feels his boy-boy is very well-fed inside. -_-"
Been religiously applying my stretchmark oil and cream every morning afternoon and night without fail... praying hard no marks no marks..
Yalo... I gain very little oh... today I meet my friend for lunch... she say i lost a lot of weight and i dont look preggy... >.<" told me that my jaw bone like suck in lidet... and my tummy VERY SMALL!!! but i eat like 6 meals a day -small meals... my belly button is so itchy itchy... not yet pop out... alwis apply oil when it's itchy but like no effects .... you know those dark line you suppose to have when your tummy grow bigger.... i still dont see them yet... >.<" *mind pm me your facebook if you dont mind... mayb i can add you in my friend list... =)
How many pcs of newborn diapers should we get ar? I was also thinking of GOON since is cheap - or maybe, Should I get goon and a mixture of huggies and etc etc.... Have joined the group ... intro yourself to me ok.. =)
My tummy feels like a tight ballloooon~ like anytime will burst... sometimes i bath i stretch a little... i get discomfort... now i have to sit on a stool and bath.... Have gotten confinement lady from GPLS.... =)
My tummy sometimes hard sometimes soft depends on where my girl is. Sometimes her legs are high inside my ribs and sometimes she's sideways. Most of the movements I feel is her stretching and her hiccups, because she's has long legs according to the doc so he say I will feel A LOT of heartburn and need to go to the toilet all the time becos she's running outta space. haha.
I have been drinking coffee....but the limit is 1 cup per day. I pamper myself to javachip...hahahaha. After that no more. I doing confinement myself. Only with a little help from my family friend aunty from hong kong...
Argh.... Just reached home from work and my 1 yr old wants me to carry her.... Think my back is gonna break soon....
Cat , my skin feels stretched only at the end of each day after work... I blame the air conditioning...:/... But I dont't have any stretch marks... Not yet at least... Haha... Not using any special stretch marks cream but my usual molton brown tonic just to moisturise and sooth....
I've something to vent.... Why are maternity and nursing lingerie in Singapore frumpy and matronly looking....I see lots of cool and sexy ones in mags from Australia...... Same with clothes.... Aussie and new Zealand brands have gorgeous looking designs in their cataloge but their stores here stocks the auntie looking ones...I've 2 more mths to tolerate maternity clothes....
I left a bottle of my oil at my workplace... so whenever i feels itchy, i immediately apply to sooths it... mayb you wanna bring a small tube with you, if you dont wanna leave it at your workplace... =)
few more months to go and we're gonna be FREEE to dress + eat and JUMP!!!
I just did my 3D scan at park way east hospital.. very cheap.. cost me only approx 60 including gst. Got 9 photos, and they will save it into a CD.
Bcoz my baby has her hand on her mouth, so cannot see her face clearly ..
Yesterday just went expo, bought one baby clothes at 6 only.. and goon nb diapers..
At work, i feel the same as you, thinking of resign.. but bcoz of the maternity leave.. cannot give up.. sigh~~
I got my CL from GPLS ...
There are some offers for the post natal massage at expo.. but dont know it's good or not.. bcoz seems like no review for babies bellies and bodywork clinic. Anyone get the package from them?
Hi Crazy cat,
Its hard for me to detect who you are in facebook cos there are a few new joiners recently. But on the right hand side, there is a doc section, Go to Names and Nick and you can find out who I am.
I got 1 pck of Goon NB, 1 pck of Nepia NB, and 2 pck of Nepia S. If baby skin really can take Nepia and Goon then I will order from them via telephone or online and they can deliver to my pl. Save hassle of lugging them home, esp if you dont have a car. Anyway I am a lazy person so I try to think of short cut. Kekekeke
Even 1st month shower, I am not going to get boxes of cakes cos like I said I am a lazy person and I want to spend time with my baby. I will just get Bengawan voucher either $8 or $12 and self boiled red eggs to give relatives. Economical right??? If they dont turn up for shower, I just mail them the voucher. (I stress - I am a lazy person)
my stroller and steriliser just got delivered! so happy with them
the first thing i want to do is just to sleep on my tummy and roll around in bed after baby pops! hahahahahahha
engel, you can try purchasing maternity online like ASOS?
Didn't try asos, but I got friends to ship in stuff from bellybutton for me... Their small counter in Taka didn't carry the nicer designs... And stocked up on Egg as well...
I'm kinda of a worry wart.I try not to shop online if I can help it.... Tend to b deceived by photos easily cause the clothes always look nicer on the models... Hahaha
And colleague heading to Thailand in a wks time... Told him to get for me maxi dresses and fisherman pants.... They look damn comfortable to be worn now...
Haha, sorry... I know most would b worried about the baby.... But i think ive a vanity issue...
Anyways seriously.... Most of the baby stuff could b gotten after she is born...
Stuff bought for 1 st pregnancy, hardly/ not used ...
1. Breast pump; was supposed to use it after heading back to work , but girl prefered pureed food to breast milk.. so just supplimented her with formula which she loved and pureed fruits..so get the pumps when ure ready to head back to work and ure sure that ull use them..
2. Disposal breast pads. Hardly used during breastfeeding. She drains milks fast
3. Bottle warmer. Hardly used when she drinks the milk fresh... Haha..
4. Newborn jumpers. Not too many; about 5 should suffice... Being new parents then, bought too many including the woolen ones which sucked for usage in Singapore...
5.playgyms. dont't b deceived that they stimulate... I think hanging mobiles are fine enough for
babies...my girl got bored of her numerous playgyms fast...
6. Stroller. Bought early, but never really got arnd using it till she's about 6 mths was enjoying cradling her too much...
Essentials to have when baby is born though is,
2. Diaper cream.
3. Easy to fasten baby clothes. Thinner material and gotta have more pcs cause baby puke alot..
4. Baby car seat ; for travelling from hospital to home...
Bottles, cot and bathtubs could b bought later cause wouldn't need bottles for breastfeeding, unless you wanna store excess milk... Easier to breast feed if baby is sleeping beside you... And newborns basically just need a wipe to cool off or get clean...
Sorry..... I'm just ranting off lists and what I think cause I can't sleep...
I probably missed out a couple of necessary items as well...
