Oh .. I am feeling better .. Good appettiee.. But having trouble sleep.. Tossing & turning every nite trying to get the right position to sleep. My baby too active .. Nite time dont sleep ...Haha I sleep super well during the day ! I can't stand the heat.. I have to be always under air condition. Haha I m counting down to 9 nov ... Days seems to be very slow Hahah...
happy to hear that you r clearing up ! dont't worry be positive you will be fine. Hope to hear good news from you tomorrow .. So excited! Oh ..your Hubby will be post there, tag along with him. I think his company will be paying for your hospital stay & delivery if you Hubby being posted there!
Wow .. If Its me, hehe I will go with him & deliver your baby there. love the weather there .. But after all you have to be comfortable Jia you !!!!
I m in my 13+wk going 14wk. I havent buy anything yet .. Waiting for baby"s gender to be known. Haha maybe you should prepared a list of things that you need so you wouldnt be that confuse when you hit down the mall! Haha..
Kids are super lucky now ... So much things for them.. Make us mummies & daddies so confused see everything we are so tempted to buy !! How many wk r you ?? you know your baby gender already ???
I thought of buying some of the things which doesnt need need me to know gender like those towels, cloth diapers etc.. but i think now everywhere no sale and we missed the taka sales (which everyone says is good).. my next gynae visit is 14.11.11, so hopefully by then can know the gender..
ya im looking at the stoller/car seat.. i already headache... my hubby also asked me questions on the stroller like im expert , i really have no answer for him.. thinking hard to buy a cheap one or invest cos baby can sit until 3.5 years.. headache man..
are you working now?
Hello mummies, hope everyone is doing well.. I just did my Oscar test last sat.. 1st attemp baby was sitting down waving etc hee.. Not in the correct position, so the sonographer ask me to have a walk for 20mins. After walking and talking to baby.. Manage to get in done the 2nd time and when my gynae doing the scan want to take a
Nice photo of baby.. He/she go and turn upside down
Hee.. So funny.. My gynae ask me what I feed
My baby why so active .. Now praying my I will pass my Oscar test..
Oh I am not working now. How about you ?? Oh my edd is one day before Urs 23.04.2012.
Well, dont't be headache these are small issues .. Haha when your baby is out you will be facing more challenges. Relax... you still have a few months to your edd so due give yourself too much pressure.*
Personally , I think it's too early to buy the towels, cloth diapers or even stroller cos" keeping at home .. Collecting alot dust. Some of the things you can buy 2nd Hand like stroller, get something which are stable & can last you for very long. Slowly do some research you will be able to get some good buy.
I think maybe there will be some sale during christmas or after new year in the mall. For cloth diaper and towels you can buy it from Chinatown market area. For baby wipes .. I will get directly from the distributor. Do a research on those brands that you may want to buy in bulk.( * I believe we use tons n tons of wipes) For diapers,for me I will start buying some "s" size*
maybe 1 or 2mth before delivery ..dont't buy too much to stock up as baby grow very fast. dont't buy "nb"diaper its too small if your baby turn out to have chubby legs. So play safe!
For clothing, maybe you can see friends who can pass down still very new clothing. The rest you do the shopping online.. It's cheaper in some of the US website. So once you know the gender haha you can start clicking your purchase.
If you have the time now, prepared a list of things (checklist) that you need to buy. So you won't miss out & won't end up buying extra stuff.*
Oh .. I m looking forward to hear great news from you on 14.11.11. Oh.. It's a long wait for me till my day also .. Counting down .. So excited ! *I got a strong feeling mine"s a boy boy ! Haha
wa.. you r right.. dont fret over small issue. Just now when i was cooking, neighbour's kid crying and screaming... I dont want I dont want!!!.. wa... its like a preview for me whats coming in future.. haha...
Im a gan jiong spider , also thought buy somethings could "remind" ourselves got another family member joining us too... i havent clear my cupboard to make way for baby stuff.. haha...
ya hopefully xmas and new year got some great sales... now is like no sales period, everything is exp.. i have already prepared a list with the supposed brand to buy, but end up when i go to the shop, just couldnt bring myself to purchase it.. haha...
im thinking if stroller and such really need to buy 2nd hand.. im still thinking.. but dont buy 2nd hand is really very very expensive for those good ones.. and my mum keep reminding me dont use things that other kids used before if you dont know the kid/parent... use friend's kids one is ok..
hee, y you think urs is boy? got any symptoms? i got tons of pimples , and look uglier.. some ppl say like that means guy too.. i dont know .. dont want to have expectations.. my hubby is only son, though no pressure to have a son, but still, i think chinese still prefer a son no matter what...
im not working either.. quit a year ago and was unhappy with my ex company cos they cheated my money.. then at the same time.. prepared for church wedding, actual day.. then honey mooon... then preggy.. think i no need to work for a long time already.. haha.. you r not working before you r preggy? is this your first baby? oh ya, your picture beside your name is so cute the baby..
ya mine too!! when the probe just touch my tummy, my baby is upside down.. then he turn left, turn right.. just dont want to go to the sleeping position.. and got 1 portion, he was moving his mouth drinking water.. open close open close.. really so amazing.. barely 6cm baby and can do such things... then the baby open the fist, close the fist.. hands in surrender position.. all sorts of pattern..
then my baby comes to a "stop" after like 5 mins.. not in a right position, facing down.. then the sonographer use the probe and disturb my tummy... a bit shake shake my tummy, ask baby to wake up wake up!! then he moves again. turn turn turn, turning around.. now i understand why im always dizzy... she didnt ask me to walk .. we are just lying there waiting for the baby to go to correct position.. i think we took about 20mins.. then finally done... was quite fun .. but we waited quite long to go in .. about 50mins..
Baby active is good .. means healthy .. i passed mine...1:6000 Low risk, praying yours will b ok too!
wow.. you gals r so active here.. i'm super lazy to even switch on my computer during weekends.. :P
you gals make it sound so fun for the oscar test that i kinda regretted opting out.. lol..
my next gynae visit will be this weekend. hope can know baby gender ..
oh.. i'm very very glad my MS cleared .. nowadays pretty back to normal n not as tiring n dont feel the need to sleep so early.. :P
at least i know i do not need to buy a cot which is so expensive n baby grows out of it so fast.. no point getting a brand new one unless you mind 2nd hand stuffs.. :P
Oh yes I was a Flight Stewardess for 8 yrs before preggie. I quit half a year ago to relax myself & make "dragon" baby. haha .. had my customry wedding just this may. Yes It's my 1st baby .Oh ..the baby picture is the cutest baby in korean (Mason Moon) He is a mixed canadian daddy & korean mummy. He is so cute .. haha ..hope that my little one will look like him (*haha .. I heard my friend saying if you always look at the baby pic before pregg, your baby will somehow look alike.)
Haha ... Yeah .. Strong instinct ... I have got pimples popping also... haha I feel ulgier. So maybe its' a boy ! No much expectations ...Anyway as long baby is healthy .. Hmm..nowadays, people say having a girl is better. They are more attached to the family even they are married.. guys.. will eventually listen to the wife after married. haha...
For me.. my neighbour got a newborn baby .. I think already should be 4 mths. 1st few months very very quiet. These few days, her cry is getting louder. (* soothing type not yelling) haha.. I enjoy listening to the crying. I can't imagine the crying will be coming for my house next year. Wow.. everytime I smell sesame oil from her house .. Yummy .. when the mum is doing confinement.
Haha .. if you got the issue of when you go to the shop, but couldn't bring yourself to purchase .. that means you r not prepared to buy anything... So dont't buy 1st. Do more research & comparasion 1st then buy .. you still got time. Relax.
Oh for stroller, Hmm...buy something which is comfortable. Sorry ya .. use 2nd hand from some friends that can pass down to you. Baby grow up very very fast so not worth it to buy everything new. Can save the $ to buy other things... as there are alot other things to buy.
Just now I mention the cloth diaper that you can buy from chinatown market is those traditional ones. If you want modern ones, you can get from here : Cloth Diapers (Powered by CubeCart)
You can register with Dumex : Dumex - A world of advice from pregnancy to parenthood , once you register with them you will receive a gift pack. included a baby nappy change mat, a milk powder sample for mother (Dumex Mamil MAMA). Once awhile they will send you free samples of child milk products.
For Diapers, you can order your here: Diapers.com.sg Pte Ltd*::*Japan Domestic Diapers/Pants , heard that the korean brand GOO.N diaper is good. You can buy in bulk if you need alot. They sell in carton.
Relax... so your baby will be relax also... haha...
Glad that your baby is fine haha you should have eat something that make your baby that active before your OSCAR. haha .. I realised that whenever I drink coke at nite .. my baby will be super active .. making me having difficulty in sleeping.
dont't worry... your result will be alright !
I think I have a very KPO hubby who asks me a lot of questions. dont know if you guys got answer to it.
1) He asked me why need a cot when we can use a play yard (those got a mattress that can lift baby higher)? Play yard is softer in material but a cot is hard, wouldnt it scratch the baby?
2) y get those maxi cosicar seat (those with a handle that you can carry baby up with the handle).. he says carry the baby like going super market.. and using that means got to put baby on the floor.. and as a mummy why i want to put baby on the floor? shouldnt we buy a car seat that is fixed, attached to the car, and another stroller is mainly to stroll? and not put this carrier in the car, then detach it, put on stroller frame... the fix and unfixing, wait never fix properly how? i feel so pai say to ask the sales girl also ..
makes me dizzy only..
wa.. really so focused to make dragon baby.. i was preggy #1 in Apr, but i miscarriaged it.. that one was a rabbit.. but end up rabbit never come.. dragon come instead... some ppl telling me to avoid dragon year , very competitive... some like you will plan for dragon year.. haha.. for me its... just follow the flow .. anything also can.. wa.. air stewardess.... impressive.. must have gone to many places to play before!! I was a sales executive earlier selling softwares and solution.. was fun too, but now think need some time then can go back to work.. would you b going back to work after your baby or going to b full time mummy after your baby is out?
ya frankly yes.. i feel guilty but i think my hubby is really nicer to me that to his parents.. then its me who always want to go home and see my own mother!! haha.. it really depends on the kid's thinking also..
wa.. thanks for the many links.. this is the thing .. i really know nothing about all these links ... i only have 1 close buddy who got a kid.. but so is the bo chap kind.. so she also dont know such things.. we just mainly base on forum discussions and must proceed the whatever based on what the other mummies say...
My hubby i think is the gan chong type... haha when i say this is cute that is cute when we went shopping, he will ask me to buy ... lucky .. I am not those complusive one... all else I think I got alot of stuff already .. haha...
me and my hubby went for pre-marriage course before.. frankly, i really think its very very good.. esp me and my hubby got very opposite ideas of finances & how we we should treat our parents after marriage especially.. ours is held by our pastor, 1 to 1 in our own small church.. so after those sessions, i really think its very very helpful... now still blissfully married.. so was thinking prenatal class should be good too, at least prepare us mentally and especially to set expectations... i didnt buy anything yet apart from the welcome package from Thomson Medical Center.. they got a bib and baby toy.. and during the last expo sale, my hubby bought a baby top that says "Me and Dad Love Man United"... so till now.. only 3 items.. haha... my another friend who is in month 5 now is fully equipped.. though we just 2 months apart but she is really very very very prepared already.. she bought most of her stuff at the taka fair in aug.. hahah... then i like.. hmm.. so unprepared...

Air Stewardess is also a job .. nothing impressive. Ya free travels to all over the world. Hmm.. I dont't intend to go back to flying after I delivered. Actually during the half a year after I resigned I was in the mist of starting my own business, even looking around for place to venture but after I got preggie everything got to put on hold cos' my hubby wants me to rest. I will want to take care of my own little one after delivering.
haha you dont't need to be gulity, man are always like that .. they dont't show much care to their parents face to face but inside their heart actually they care about them alot. Just like my hubby, he is not those who will use words or visit his parents. I am the one who always constantly reminding him to just give a call to the parents ask them how are they & visit them often. The wife play apart also ! hehe .. you r lucky to have a hubby that is nice to you ... so treasure it !
you r most welcome! I spend my time now doing research & comparing prices. Do some calculations on whatever that is expected to spend monthly for baby. haha .. do some research on those delicious confinement food that I like... hehe so I can plan the menu for whoever is doing confinement for me.
Prepare yourself a few list :
1. Checklist of what to buy for baby .
2. Checklist of things you need to pack.
3. Checklist of What doc you need for hospital admission & for baby bonus &emergency contact (*your gynae) when you r going to delivery.
* hehe ... dont't base too much on forum discussions.. take it as a reference... some may work for you, some may not.. you must do whatever you r comfortable...
I make sure he dont't ask me to wear the jersey also ... yucky so ugly .. haha ...before marriage I wore n accompany him to join those supporting club. Can't imagine... with our little one .. he is bring him/her to watch matches... OMG...
here's my opinion to your questions..
1) ppl usually buy the cushion like thingy to put around the cot to ensure the baby doesnt knock himself/herself against the sides of the cot. for me, if i were to really buy either one of them, i will opt for the travel bassinet becoz it can double up as both a cot n play yard n in case you wanna keep an eye on baby when you r watching tv, you can push it out to the living room too.. nowadays they have a detachable changing station too.. its kind of a all in one n not as expensive as a cot n you can still continue to use it as a play pen when they grow bigger. err.. i sound like a sales promoter now.. lols..
2) you know kids do cry when you wake them up.. i believe why they have those detachable car seats is because in case the baby falls asleep in the car, there are some ppl who just detach the entire thing then to risk waking the baby up when they wrestle with the buckles n stuffs.. of coz if you feel more comfortable with having a dedicated car seat n a dedicated stroller its up to your preference.
hi all mummies here,
Im in my 13wks 1day EDD 28APR, just went for check up this morning everything is fine.. baby is almost 7CM was trying to see the baby gender today but my baby cross his/her legs so cannot see anything.. im hoping for boy boy but my chinese sinseh (traditional chinese medicine doctor) read my pulse and told me most likely is a gal.. plus all my friend says i look prettier and i have no breakout.. but i have no MS and no other symptom at all only nausea sometime and i sleep alot.. they are some ppl told me no MS mean is a boy.. after all i think boy or gal is the same , most important is a healthy baby.
are you intend to hire helper after baby is born? i get quite stress up cos my sister In law keep tell me how difficult to handle a baby and keep encourage to get a helper..
Welcome ! Oh You are @ your 13wk, you did you OSCAR test already? Hmm..wah so fast your gynae check the gender for you already? Haha.. my gynae was telling me usually mummies with breakouts most likely will have boy. haha .. but really depends on indiviual. Hmm.. for MS it's really depends on indiviual also.. not MS means your body is coping well with pregnancy. Relax.. hehe sometimes .. it's like that .. the more you want that .. haha you have the opposite !
For me... I also dont't want to think so much ... Anyway ... as long as it's a healthy baby.
dont't get affected by what your sister in law say ... you must have your own confidence. Maybe she herself find that it's difficult for her but maybe not for you. Do whatever you are comfortable. As for me, I am very confident of myself. I am going to take care of my baby myself. Be positive ... As long as you have the patience & the love for your little one ... I am sure you can do it yourself.
Like what friends always tell me .. breastfeeding is so tiring & they only BF their baby only for less than a month. Alot of them telling me very negative things on this issue. Keep on asking me to prepare Formula Milk. Haha .. My reply to them is .. ya .. I will just standby just a small can, but I am confident that I am going to BF my baby till 3 yrs old. haha .. They keep quiet. What can people say if you have the determination yourself ! Why care about what people comment !
By the way ... anyone doing confinement for you??
Jia you !!
