Never say Never... Got to have lots of positive thoughts!!!! If I dont't have enough positive thoughts, I would have hang on for the 2 pregnancies..
Well, I will do my best, if things did not go according to plan, at least I tried.
I will be ok.. dont't worry...
frankly i dont know much about breastfeeding.. but i dont think i want fully breastfeed...i think i still prefer to store my milk in the fridge or what.. i dont think i can wake up every 2 hours to feed.. (my health mainly, my panic attack will come if i not enuff zzz), so esp after birth and doing confinement, i really want to rest and offload to my CL as much as possible.. after confinement maybe i will alternate with my hubby or mother in law... but every 2 hours for me now is a bit taxing..
Well, health is def more important.. dont't give yourself too much stress..
I was still thinking and have not made up my mind (this is still pending to check with my gynae on my health reasons too).. If doc dont't advise me to feed, I will give full formula like my elder one..
Stress not, Jofeny..

Never I think the power of being a daddy can be so great ! As a mum to be... I also can't imagine that no matter what happen I can just endure just for the sake of baby...
Jia you mummies!! We are just great !!
YUP!!! We are great and our hubbies too!!! they are super dad too..
thanks for replying.
yes. i was referred to see a dietician and she did ask me to restrict my carb intake and everything. she even asked me to stop mama milk as mama milk has higher sugar content. i am currently taking Anlene Hi-Calcium milk powder. well, i do not have a sweet tooth, and i eat quite normally. the usual mixed veg rice, ban mian, yong tau foo. I dont't even take very much fast food per say. 1-2 times per month. no canned drinks except the occasional coffee and tea (with milk).
perhaps it is also induced by stress since i am trying to finish up my work and hand over to my colleagues before i go on leave. i have also been waking up early to go to the toilet to ease myself. and i find it difficult for myself to get back to sleep.
plus my #1 is really needing my attention quite a fair bit so i really get drained. i am asleep by 10pm every night though.
i am getting quite worried cos i seem to be experiencing some contractions. really pray hard that i do not deliver prematurely. i am trying to rest as much as i can.
always paranoid at the back of my mind.
Ya..mummy's milk powder contains some sugar level. you shouldn't be taking too much of rice and noodles also. Maybe have more fruits & vegetables. I think your problems lies with stress.. Usually mummies diagnose with good will deliver baby prematurely.
Some mummies have Contractions due to stress... Try to relax yourself. Maybe take a few days to rest, dont't rush yourself into anything. Try to ask family members to take care of your #1 a few days so that you can rest.
dont't be worry.. The more you r worried the more you stress yourself. Contractions will be more. Have a positive mind... I am sure baby will be born healthy. You should find solution to your problem now not adding on problem to your current problem.
Rest.. Rest rest okie ! Jia you !! you can do it!
*oh ya for the frequent night pees, you can try to sleep "scissor position" so baby will be lift up & not press on your pelvic area.
To all the mummies who are preparing to bf, arm yourselves with nipple cream before you give birth. Cos if it is your first time, you may get sore or cracked nipples especially if you still not so sure about how to .
Bf is a trial and error process. So dont't give up so soon. It really helps to seek consult from a lactation consultant if in doubt. Once you get it going you won't turn back! It is a rewarding process.
Jofeny n 2ndtimemum. Same as you 2 hahaha tats y my hubby can't stop me hahaha. He just give me eat what I want. Never really stop me
Jofeny, will pray for you. Wow you can start to count down!!! Coming soon. My hubby every yr valentine day spend in his army hahaha coz he always have reservist at this time. So for a few yrs we never really celebrate . Hehe
My hubby dont dare to cut the ribbon so for no.1 he leave it to the Gynae. So he says no.2 will be the same. To be fair hahahaha
