This is a discussion on EDD in Sept 2011 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Oh i thought i was the only one looking at baby cookies n stuff. you all are too! Lol. Not ...
Oh i thought i was the only one looking at baby cookies n stuff. you all are too! Lol. Not doing the Chinese 1 month but my hubby side must have like little party after baby comes. His mum etc all coming over in Oct so baby will be about 1 month old too. Saw some bottle shaped cookies as party favors. So cute! Already deciding the theme for the party, either Bob the Builder or Thomas Tank Engine.
Yah i saw some 1 month packages very nice. There's red egg, like kueh like that etc. What you do with it exactly? you give your guests 1 box each? Or just relatives?
Oh.... I see. What does the red egg mean?
symbolizes fertility.. even number of eggs means it's a girl.. odd number means boi..
I'm getting so emo legs swollen like BOOM.. and it's not pre-eclampsia.. checked blood pressure every day and gynae yst say it's not also can't walk , can't exercise.. really very emo
i dont dare to take as i look so ugly hahaaha...
I cant try that... I walk alot. bo pien, must work. But i will try drink lots of water & get 8 hours sleep every night. That's quite difficult also... At night my legs like tingling. Keeps me awake. Read that it's normal now. Another reason why must take ML earlier... NOT ENOUGH SLEEP!
Anyone bought baby toiletries already? Hubby said too early... But if have $ now then might as well buy right. Aiyah...
i have yet to get toiletries maybe in august then get... as i need to pack the room for baby now.. its really messy hahaha years of storage instead...
hi all, came across this website with really sweet looking cookies. you might want to take a look:

Rabbitmummy - the cookies
carisella and chocobaby, my feet start to swell too esp at the ankles area. try wearing compression socks or prop your feet on a pillow when sleeping. it does help abit.
coz my PILs are pretty pantang people, i already bought most of the baby tolietaries (some still on the way to reach SG coz i bought online) and planning to start washing all the baby clothes, mattress cover etc within this month. Coz come Aug, it will be lunar 7th month and i'm not allowed to do anything related to baby. But baby cot will only take from brother in law in early Sep (to wait for lunar 7th month to be over).
btw, if we plan to have baby first month baby shower, do we still need to prepare those full month cakes and red eggs to those who attend the baby shower party? i thot we only give those cakes to friends and relatives who bought baby gifts but unable to attend the baby shower but hubby said still must give to everyone?!

sweetest moments for friends n ginthye for relatives.... cheap n good... i like....=D
Yah, me too. But now my leg is better , ever since i get enough sleep. really lazy to go work everyday. Lol
I already bought some toiletries, my friend taught me to slowly buy abit abit when you saw cheap and good one. If you last min then buy, you have no choice and it may be costly too. At least you buy abit now, you wont feel so pressure on the expenses.
for friends.. those who cannot attend your baby shower yet give your baby gifts/hongbao, you have to give them cakes. like 'hui li'(In chinese)
I used this pureen detergent.. i think liddat spell.. the smell is soooooooo nice.. i keep telling my dad, baby come out is this smell.. =3 xiang xiang =3
Rabbitmummy - actually not much difference for baby party between my side & hubby side. Just that they usually have a baby shower few weeks before delivery for the mummy & her friends. But for my Malay side, like Chinese we have a 'party' after baby safely delivered. So we decide to have it after and combine our cultures. If not before must have then after also must have. Hubby will give out cigars to the men, that's one of his 'tradition' but no alcohol drinks, my grandma kill me! I think all culture same ... Makan for all, presents for baby, everyone come to see him or her & happy2 .
Mehmeto - thanks for the link!
Dolphyant - yah my ankle so fat! All footwear that i use before now uncomfortable already. I just wear sandals or slippers now.
Fiong88 - that's what i think too! We'll never know when it'll be on sale again what right. My husband ... He say Singapore everytime have sale.
Charlotettan - they havent reply me email asking how much... I let you know when they do.
my swell until very badly.. up to my ankles there also so i dont't think i can wear now..it's a pressure sock... that encourage circulations... that's good to put on before it's that swollen but now you should NOT put it if the leg have swell that badly... well it's mainly due to the blood circulations
