Oh! So those rhythmic "kicking" are actually the baby hiccuping! And I was wondering what is baby doing inside; why are is he "kicking/punching" in steady beats!
Talking about 'hiccuping' I felt my baby kicked n pushed on both sides of my tummy at d same time this morning. Hahahaa dont know what she was doing. Perhaps stretching n since d room inside for her is getting smaller that is why i can feel it so hard. Very cute.
By d way I also didn't go for antenatal classes n just depend on books, d internet n also advices from my mom, sis in law n gynae. Bought d book 'what to expect when you're expecting' n it's very helpful with a lot of info.
Wanna ask too. When you mummies sleep at night how do you all turn from one side to d other side since tummy is getting bigger? My hubby always tell me to turn gently cuz scared might affect baby. Hee hee is there a way to turn gently now dat it's d third trimester?
I think wont affect the baby? but i do turn gently also .. haha
I bought d book from work cuz I work in a bookshop. Hee hee I think its easy to find as its one of d best books on pregnancy in d market. There's a series of it called 'what do you expect'. There's even an app for d series in iTunes. check it out!
Hmmm flipping...yeah I do dat too but now much more gently hahaha do you feel your baby kick or push on d side you r lying on like for eg. If you r lying on your left baby will kick or push on d left side of your tummy n vice versa?
To sit up n turn somehow a bit tedious I think. Hahaha might not be able to get back to sleep if I were to sit up n turn. Think I'll just flip or turn over ever so gently. Hee hee thx for d info!
Hahaha i have another 10 weeks or so more to go as my EDD is 6 dec! Every time baby kick or push or move I feel very excited. Can't wait to see n hold our little princess! Hee hee yes get d book! It's very good for first time mummies! Ok you try d method tonite n let me know of d outcome.
I have to quit cause I'm a cabin crew... :'(
Wish i can continue working but My uniform is simply just NOT cut out for Expansion at all...
And also Cause Company dont allow...
wow lisasaifi, you have 10weeks left?!
Yup, your EDD is earlier than most of us.. so fast that you are in your 3rd tri already.
I still have 5days to beginning of 3rd tri...
Your baby is coming soon!!
So happy for you
ive been turning in bed like as if im not pregnant.....
my hubby thinks ive been moving about like a Non-preggy as well & worries if i should be more slow/careful...
And I still sleep on my back as well!
Hmm, maybe once 3rd Tri start,
i will be less energetic..
Oh you were a cabin crew? with SIA? Guess what! I work at d airport. Hahaha you're a first time mom too ya?
Yeah i'm hitting d 30th week tdy n yes d tiredness is becoming worst! dont forget heartburns n indigestion too. 10 weeks mite just fly by without me knowing it n I'm getting a bit anxious but very excited also! Hahaha
it's my first baby too n my dream comes true cuz we gonna have a princess.
Lolz my hubby said d same thing to me too d other day. He said when I turn in my sleep it's as if I'm not pregnant at all. Told him dat it's kinda subconscious so can't really help it. Haha but nowadays I'm starting to turn more gently. To do dat have to open my eyes n return back to sleep. Sometimes had difficulty going back to sleep.
I will not DIY, feels wierd to me & ive not done it before..
Also, my Nails are super Long and lil Sharp..
Nails grow like Crazy ever since Preggy.
Good change from my 'never been able to grow' nails!!
Last tri still can get HOT n SteaMyy!!
Its fun to get hot n steamy.. haha
you dont feel uncomfortable turning in your sleep right?
Then should be ok right?
Doubt your baby girl will feel anything..
Yes, im first time mummy and We are both expecting gals..
My edd 18dec, 12 days after you!
yes, i also feel her kicking/punching both sides of my tummy at the same time..
Like she's drumming!!
Feet and Hands moving concurrently..
And yes, I feel her kicking on the side that im lying as well!
babies kick more on left when we lie left as our organs are able to be compressed properly on the left, hence leaving more space for baby to kick!
Yup, I was flying with Our NAtional Carrier..
you work at airport?? Nice!!
Then all the more you will know that My uniform cant expand!
I cant even zip it up now! Wahahah
I miss the smell of Airport, check in gates & aerobridges... ahhahah
I think I have not experience hiccup yet.. Or maybe I dont know. Cos my kicks are not in rhythnm.. Sometimes after a kick it wait a few seconds to one min for another kick.. Sometimes it's continuous ..
Actuslly bird best very easy to boil .. I just soak one piece in water to soften.. Then put in slow cooker with water and Rock sugar and slow cook about 1 hour. I dont know is it the longer the better but 1 hour is enough I learnt. Some people double boil that is to prevent water from evaporating but I just use slow cooker cos it won't cause the soup to evaporate.
Hahahaha Mreow Mreow...yep I know very well how your uniform is like...every day see those cabin crews you can still visit d airport like for shopping or meals...many Singaporeans visit airport like every weekend! Haha
Well when I turn I feel ok...normal...yeah baby shld be unaffected since she can still kick n push whenever I turn I've read dat babies are well protected by d amniotic fluid n sac...so they are cushioned well except if there is a strong or violent impact...dat is dangerous!
So where are you going to deliver? I'm delivering at NUH. D service there is quite good n very friendly nurses.
Haha, im delivering at Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Service there also good with polite service staff
Ure gonna be at NUH? Yeah, glad to hear that they are nice too!!
Haha, though I miss airport,
I NEVER went back on my OffDay unless Absolutely Necessary...
And even Now I wont go!!
Thinking back to my Flying days, I used to be so Amused why Sporeans like to go Airport to Relax & also be a little Peeved at the huge crowd...
Guess According to my 'Ground Working' Friends, The Airport gives them a Different 'Feel'...
The place is like WORK to me, I can never Never relate to it as a Makan/Jalan Jalan place!!
Its an Occupational Hazard!!
Just Like when I go for Holidays or check into Hotel rooms, i cant ever Let my Hair down 100% & enjoyy.
Cuz its so close to Work...
Hmm, wonder if you get what I mean...
haha, like there's not SO much excitement for me as compared to ppl who arent in my Line...
Not good not Good...
Yep, babies are super well protected by the Water Bag..
Dont worry about your flipping!
Even Hanky Pankying with Hubby is Good for Baby..
They Like Movement.. Provides a Rocking Motion. Thats why Babies are Less active in Day when Mummies are up and about.
They are rocked to sleep.
The min We lay still, they will wake...
Cherry Blossom, Yes, i Do the double boil thing with Bird Nest Cuz I dont have slow cooker!
But it takes forever for me... Like 2h?
Actually I think Slow Cooker is a Good investment...
Think I might Purchase 1 soon!!
Haha I get what you mean.. Occupational hazard. Like I work in toa payoh I never want to go toa payoh during weekends! But to others, your job is still wonderful.. Get to travel around.
Slow cooker is really a good investment. I use that to boil bird nest and the cordyceps soup. Used it almost every week. Next time will also need it to cook porridge for your baby!
lizasaifi: woo your EDD is earlier than mine By the way, I tried yesterday. I think flipping is better lols
Mreow Mreow: Oic!!! no wonder.. But short of 1 income like that.. and you turn as if you r not preggy ? Not xin ku? and i cant sleep on my back .. I feel uncomfy like that.. and haha my baby kick more on the left when i lie left too =D
Cherry Blossom: Do you think buying the bird nest in piece form is more cheaper than in bottle form? Since its so convenient to cook like that maybe I can try to buy it in pieces better..
and what is double boil ? lol
Mreow Mreow: yeah I know what you mean...occupational hazard...Lolz dat I think is d softer way to put it hahaha even me I dont go airport if I'm not working unless if really need to go like sending off friends or relatives...n i dont even step into other bookshops since I'm working in one...going into bookshops is not as exciting as before even though I love my job hahaha ironic isn't it? that is occupational hazard I guess yep I'm delivering at Nuh even though it's in d west n I'm living in AMK...I guess it's d comfortability n d way I'm treated during every check up dat made up my mind to deliver there...distance doesn't matter as its easy to get there from AMK
momopeachgal: yep I think mine is one of d earliest EDD here...hahaha so you tried flipping? Last nite I'm turning more gently n my hubby said its better than before...it was scary to see me turn in my sleep before lolz I can't sleep on my back anymore too...d longest is like 3 mins n I will have to turn either left or right to be comfy again...will feel a little breathless since baby is bigger n heavier now
lizasaifi: yes I tried the sit up and turn then lie down. very fan hahaa.. I prefer flipping now hehehe.. yaps i cant sleep on my back either .. actually when i sit down i also feel uncomfy.. dono y.. r you excited that your EDD is coming?
and mummies out there.. Lets say your EDD is 18th Dec, when will you girls start to go on maternity leave?
Monopeachgal, double boil means you put the bird best in a small ceramic bowl with water and some rock sugar for taste, then the bowl you put in a big pot of water and let the bird nest cook while the pot of water boil. Must put the ceramic bowl on a stand inside the pot. Hehe hope understand how I describe. Oh buying the piece form it's measured in 'liang'. So say about 12 -15 pieces is about $300+. each time cook one piece. Depends on how much you consume for those bottle form cos I felt can eat more per piece each time. If buy bottle you dont't really eat as much bird nest bah unless your consumption is more so it's about the same.
By the way my friend also recommend white fungus which is also good for nourishment and much cheaper. Maybe when my bird nest finish will buy that. Anyone heard about eating white fungus??
Hmm, momopeachgal, I feel comfy sleeping in my back !!
I dont experience much discomfort yet. Only when I climb the stairs, I do feel a little out of breath.
Other than that, I still move about Like non-preggy.
Im turning 28weeks so Maybe I'm not too far along in pregnancy yet to feel all the discomforts?
I love back sleeping.
Read that cannot do so but I dont't feel any discomfort at all.
dont know whether can continue or not. Haha...
We are indeed 1 income lesser, but no choice I guess...
Hubby doesn't want me to tK any Part-time job during these 9months also...
Yes, Cherry Blossom, white fungus is good.
I do take it occasionally in soups
And yes, my job is good. I do enjoy my job.
That's why I miss flying... Enjoy the lifestyle..
Momopeachgal, read that Bird Nest is Piece form is much better.
Bottled form has more preservatives & usually has lesser qty of birdnest!!

Sorry, I dont't follow the thread very closely, my memories is very bad now! Haha... I also flip and move about like I am not pregnant; my colleagues n friends are always panicky for me. Haha.
Even though its is said that sleeping on the side seems to provide more relief for mommies, I still feel that sleeping on my back is comfy . As in, if I sleep on the side I need a cushion to support the tummy or else I feel it "sagging" down and gives me more discomfort. so imagine every night if I flip, I gotta move the duvet, shift the bolster, bring along the small pillow. Haha! WHAT A CHORE! So sometime I get so sleepy n tired I sleep on my back!
But my back is very bad and was once rush to the hospital bcoz the pain is too unbearable; so doctor advise me to always sleep on the side to lessen the pressure on my spine.
Anyway, I wanna share these with all of you!
The husband went and order this from G-market thru a friend. It's this uber BIG you-shaped pillow that can support our body all through-out. Hubs though it should be good for my back and help me sleep better. It just came today, tried it out, it is really quite comfortable. But not enough support for the "sagging" tummy when sleeping on the side. But on the overall bcoz you can adjust how closely it hug you. It really take some relief off the back and provide additional support around the hip area to relief some tummy weigh. Haha!
But... I think it's quite costly. $100odd?
But I tell myself never mind. Next time can keep baby inside when I let baby sleep on bed with me. So investment. Haha.
This is how the pillow look like.
Be warned though its really huge! The hubs got a shock and keep laughing and saying that he must sleep on he floor with that on the bed!
Hmm... Since your back hurts after sleeping on your back, you should try not to...
Luckily your hubby bought the pillow for you!!
For me I still continue sleeping on back cuz I dont't have Any pain at all...
Actually everybody says my tummy very small..
If im not wearing tight fit Shirt, most can't tell I'm preggy too.
Maybe that's why I dont't feel the pressure of the uterus?
dont know man.
Gonna ask gynae if I continue sleeping like that...
How's it going? Hahaha excited is just one of the feelings I'm having now dat EDD is getting nearer by d day! Lolz lots of other feelings too but of coz mostly is happy n wonderful feelings. I'm lucky to have a supportive husband n mom. N I have a cousin who's close to me who can give me lots of advice on being an ftm cuz she already has 2 kids n she's younger than me. Hahaha
I've started to buy things n clothes for my princess. Wun be buying too many clothes as I know a friend is giving me some hand me downs from her girl n also ltr during baby shower surely some ppl will give clothes as gifts. Baby grow very fast so mite overgrow clothes n then become wasted if cannot fit them.
As for maternity leave I've already discussed with my HR n store IC as to when I would like to start my leave as I would like to clear my balance leave of d yr before I start my maternity. So hopefully baby will cooperate by coming on time. Heehhehe will have to talk to her to be a good gal n cooperate with mummy. Hahaha
