I think now more Chinese mummies engage Malay massage ladies for their post natal treatment...saw in d other threads some users exchanged contact numbers of Malay massage ladies...that is great!
what about you? you gonna engage Malay massage lady for your post natal treatment?
Hahaha Mreow Mreow yeah that is why I asked my cousin to recommend me. More reliable. If you want I can pm you d massage lady contact no n you call her n ask. When is your EDD ya?
Mine is 18dec.
Any idea what the lady does?
WhAt kind of wrap and do we have to wear the wrap/binder as well?
She will give you a whole body massage...n if you ok with jamu or traditional Indonesian herbs, she will prepare for you to consume...yes you will have to wear d wrap/binder n I must tell you dat it's very very tight from what my cousin told me...but it's good n beneficial to get your pre-pregnancy body back as for baby she will bathe baby in this flower bath so dat baby can be cured or prevented from getting jaundice n also a massage for d little one...you can choose between 5, 7 or 10 days package I think...I mite choose 7 days...let me know if you want d contact k
Hi morning mummies! was MIA-ed during weekends cause usually I dont't use computer during weekends I am back now
Cherry Blossom: Hi, thank you for the explanation of what is double boil. Now i know already! thank you! my mum bought 6 pieces of bird nest from the medicine hall.. she say $80+ (after discount). I think you r right.Bottle form i think the bird nest not that much as compared to 1 piece hee. I heard white fungus is good too =)
Mreow Mreow: Good good. I like to sleep on my back too but too bad i dont feel comfy already. I felt out of breath too when i climb the stairs heh=) and your an active mummy hehe.. actually i envy you that you no need to work. how i wish i no need to work too! Ya i tink i gonna switch to bird nest in piece form ... after finished my bottled . or change to white fungus as mentioned by Cherry Blossom. I asked gynae before what is the recommended sleeping position. He told me any position is ok as long as you dont feel uncomfortable =)
karenoon: So sweet of your hubby! I wanted to buy it too but i thought it was very expensive so i "bu she " buy it really helps?
lizasaifi: Hi!! it is very impt that people around us are supportive and caring towards us when we r pregnant. Glad that you have it!! and ya, i heard cannot buy too many clothes. baby grows very fast , soon the clothes cannot wear .. so nice of your cousin to provide you advice and give you clothes! =) so when will you start to take leave ? ya tok to your princess more!!! =)=) Btw would you mind if you can PM me the massage lady your cousin recommends you?
Wow just over the weekend, our posts here have increased!
I also just flip my body but each time i flip, i am quite concious coz my hubby always say i am turned to the other side too fast.. but seriously, i think i still dont know what is a "lighter" way to flip.. hahaha i will lift up abit of my body before fully turn over to the other side.. feel heavy turning.. think i need to gain more energy to carry the weight.
I'm also looking for more choices on post natal massage lady. My cousin has introduced one to me and she said it is very good coz she used her service but i have a little doubts.. $787 for 7 sessions (including transport already), without using jamu, use non-fragrance oil. i dont't mind the charges, but when i talk to her, she sounded very arrogant and it seems like she doesn't have a website to see and i am not sure if she will give me a receipt when I place deposit. She also said that i should book in advance 3-6mths from EDD, so i feel even more sian coz I dont't know how to get black and white that i will be engaging her service.
Karenoon: I've bought a boomerang nursing bolster too, which can be used for prenatal mummies to hug and sleep sideways.. quite comfy but when you are going to turn the other side, it's heavy and troublesome so i just put it one side, the other side, i will place a medium sized pillow for me to hug then i dont't have to carry that big bolster to the other side.. cost $126. brand: Theraline. I will use a small baby pillow to put under my tummy as well and it feels more comfortable than without it.. haha how's yours? is it good to use and less troublesome than mine?
Mreow Mreow: you mean now national carrier doesn't allow you to take unpaid leave for your pregnancy and maternity? very wasted to quit ... my cousin took unpaid leave for 2 years during her pregnancy, national carrier allows .. now she is happily flying around again. Wow you still can sleep on your back! so envy.. i think mine likes me to sleep on my left... when i sleep on right, he keeps kicking/punching me non-stop on left and right tummy and sometimes feel wriggling in the middle of the tummy.. but when i sleep left, the action is milder for a while, before he kicks again.. hahha
Lizasaifi: Your EDD is so soon! how are you feeling now? have you gotten all essential things prepared? do update us on your birth story when the time comes ^^
Momopeachgal: I also feel out of breath when i climb up the stairs. In fact, i feel my heels quite painful even when i walk around in my house just after awhile.. at night, get my hubby to massage my feet for me when i feel that it's very red and sore.. i feel sian that i can't do much exercise now.. my hubby said my feet feels sore coz it's not strong enough to carry the weight.
Also, my ideal maternity leave will be on the delivery day.. hahha that has always been my ideal maternity leave ever since i understand the meaning of maternity leave.. omg i sound so old.
but right now, i am already taking unpaid leave and rest all the way till next year before going back to work coz my office environment is quite hazardous and I had spottings recently, so gotta rest more at home..
some of my friends took 2 weeks in advance of EDD. Think when the time is nearer, can also seek advice from gynae on when might be the possible actual EDD before deciding how many weeks in advance you wanna take.
MamaDT: from the way you describe about your baby kick when you sleep on the left and the right, its the same as mine lols, my legs and feets have not sore yet (*touch wood*) but I felt some of the veins like more n more obvious already i really scared my leg will be sore.. I better get my hubby to help me massage my feet too =) yapss i planned my maternity leave to start on my delivery day. I intended to take 2 weeks of annual leave before my delivery.. I scared who noes baby come out earlier a bit i dowan to rush to hospital from workplace hee.. when is your EDD? why you dowan to take annual leave ??
Lol Momopeachgal, my first trim was a terrible morning sickness all the way till a month ago, my puling is slightly better only... I have used up the leaves already lol
My sore is not very very swollen kind... It is yah just red n sore at the heels portion... Especially right heel.. Yah the veins are very obvious ... I see very scared..haha
Oh yah my EDD is 17 dec.. Heehee
MamaDT: Oh your EDD is 1 day before mine! heess.. So you also mite take 2 weeks leave before the EDD or the date that the doctor advised you to be..? Oo icicic.. Yaaa... mine is more n more obvious. I see also felt its very kong bu.. btw.. you saying your got morning sickness? All the way till a month ago then diminish? your morning sickness so long ?? Urs is boy or girl?
Yah damn long.... Was almost close to dehydrated at start of trim 2, got onto drip and stuff.. i've lost lotsa weight and simply gone skinny... but I feel good I can finally eat more now and gain back some weight... Although sometime feel like puking again recently.... I hope the indigestion doesn't come back to haunt me badly! :/
I am now on unpaid leave all the way, so HR says my maternity will start 4 weeks before EDD.. According to MOM. Lol so no choice, just say ok... Haha at least I dont't have to go back to the dangerous office environment...
Oh! Mine is boy heehee
Hi, I am Sze Sze, just join the group, my edd is 12 dec.
Was wondering if the post natal massage is good n necessary ? My sis in law pass me her contact, she used the Malay massage after her 1-3rd child, according to her, it is very good, but you got to bear with the pain bcos the lady really wrap very tight. But I still a bit hesitate if want to get engage...
For the sleeping position, I always sleep 'flat', but my Gynae told me right now I can sleep any position as long as I feel comfortable, but later on he will ask me to sleep to left side, good for baby.
Just wondering anyone done their shopping list for baby? There is baby fair coming on 5-7 oct at expo....
MamaDT: ahh poor mummy.. for me I am only like suffering from morning sickness from about 6th weeks all the way to the end of 1st trimester.. but glad that you can eat more now.. Do take a lot of nutritious stuffs ya? I m suffering from some indigestion too actually, i tried to eat cherry tomatoes so that I wont suffer from constipation.. Is it because you r on unpaid leave all the way that is why your maternity leave must start 1 month before EDD? Or is it a must that maternity must start 4 weeks before EDD? What job are you working as ? How come your office environment is dangerous??? and mine is boy too! same! ^^
SzeSze: Hi Sze Sze welcome to the group!! I heard from a lot of mummies that a post natal massage is good. it helps to lose weight and slim down the tummy area.. I never really do shopping list, just buy anything that I come across whenever i go fairs.. Oh ya.. the baby fair is coming sooN!

I'm so happy that our Forum is Buzzing with activities and replies!!
Feel that its veryyy good that we are all sharing our experiences, joys and ailments here!
Who else best can we chat with regarding Pregnancy than with preggies that are around the same time pregnant as us??
YAY! edd DEC mummies Rox! Wahaha
(a LiL hyper due to BubbleTea Consumption in secret )
Sze Sze! Welcome to the Group!!
Hope you will Stay long here too!
you are just like me, sleeping flat at night!
My edd is 6days after you..
Same as Momopeachgal i think..
(Memory ULTRA bad these days)
Post Natal Massage is not a Necessity but its a Privilege if you can spare the time and money.
Yep, like what momopeachgal mention, there seems to be alot of Benefits.
Honestly I dont't know if its really beneficial..
Im the kind of person that have to personally try it before I believe in the Product. Hearsay is just Hearsay Afterall...
And i guess the results vary with individuals too right?
Hehe, But before i quit my Job, ive already set aside some cash for it , so I will go for it!!
It'd probaby function as a 'ME' time too after Baby is born too!!
'Me' time is impt!!
If not we might fall into PostNatal Depression!!
I remember you mentioning about your Morning sickness and your weight loss...
Waa, i remember those horrible Nauseating feelings. Had them till my 6month.
Yes yes, really hope the problems of HeartBurn, indigestion, breathlessness dont't haunt you in 3rd trimester!
Or rather, dont haunt all of us!!
Hmm, your Massage is quite ex right?
More than a $100 for each session... those that I know of usually charge less than a $100 per session.
Is yours the shop type?
Hmm, if you cant click with the Masseuse on phone then best not to engage them ...
Later you wont feel comfortable with her.... Right?
Hmm, Its standard that if we are Preggy, have to resign on the spot.
now SQ crew arent offered Unpaid Leave anymore.. That was in the past where there were Surplus of crew..
So we could do anything we wanted during our leave..
Like your Cuzzie, she was very lucky, technically she didn't have to quit.
It was at the right time...
She just went on Unpaid Leave and so she took the opportunity to give birth!
Now we are kinda short of crew so company not offering that option..
Yes wasted. But Haha, I can always go back flying again after giving birth!
Anyway, im glad that you are already on Unpaid leave!!
Just Chill and enjoy You should take the chance to rest at home as you have quite afew discomforts..
By the way, today is your 1st day of 3rd trimester ya?
Arent you 28 weeks today alreadyyy!!
Momopeachgal, since our EDD the same, are you keen on the 3D scan?
Quite Ex actuallllly....
So far i think only Mummies MAMADT & KARENOON did the 3D/4D scan..
I just asked my gynae to arrange it for me. Gonna do it in KK cuz so far Ive checked its the lowest price being offered around.
Super excited.. haha...
And the Birdnest your mum bought for you is really cheap!
6pieces for $80+!!
Super Good buy you knowww!!
Haha, you say Im active mummy?
Actually dont know if its because Of a Supplement/Vitamin I'm taking!!
you heard of Spirulina? Hubby bought it for me.
Ive been taking it for like 2months+ and it really makes me feel better somehow..
I dont feel so burdened by my Pregnancy and still full of energy and so active..
Its super good and has so manyy nutrients in it its incredible.
Maybe thats y?!?
go Check it out!
How was work today at Airport? Busyyy?? Hope not
Oh, thanks for offering your ML contact!
Pls do PM me her contact. Might contact her next time!
Haha, so funnnny,
Later all the EDD dec Mummies using the same Masseuse for our Post Natal Massage!!
Oh ya by the way Mummies,
Have ppl being offering seats to you in Public transport?
Yesterday was the first time I took MRT since preggy and NO ONE even realized I was Preggy..
Waddd the Heck!!!
Sze Sze: Welcome to join this group!!! =) I m gg to the fair to buy as many as possible (as long as i can carry hm) lol have only baby clothings that my cousin handed over to me for the time being my EDD is 17/12, 5 days after yours..
Momopeachgal: 4 weeks maternity starts before EDD coz right now I am on unpaid leave and will not go work until after my maternity leave is done deal.. So according to HR, I will have to start my maternity leave 4weeks before EDD..
Hmmm my office environment is unsafe coz it's a very kan cheong place, everyone moves around very fast in the office to get their things done ASAP, a lot of paperwork so there are boxes of files on the ground. Worse, coz that particular office is old, so there are some holes on the floor although carpeted, but I almost tripped a few times coz was too engrossed reading my work in hand. Hahaha and there are many blind spots, so almost bumped onto my colleagues many times hahaha one thing I like is the company's benefit and work but I find that it is too dangerous to work there for the time being too. Lol so stay hm n rest more is better.. Haha
Mreow Mreow: yah .... Puke like crazy that time... Wah your memory is still good yah lol... My memory becoming bad.. Keep forgetting what I wanna do next then walk up n down many times in the house just to do one thing. Lol so my heels are feeling the pain...
With regards to bird nest prices, my mum also said that it's very cheap now ! So we should all go and buy the best ones hahaha
Yes yes!! 3rd trim! I hope indigestion dont't haunt all of us!!!!
Yah... I find it abit dubious & more expensive when i talked to her over the phone.. But what I see from my cousin is good results ..
I did my 3D scan at my gynae's clinic in Thomson Medical Center.. Cost about $70 for the scan only (have not include the consultation charges yah)
Lizasaifi: may I have the massage lady contact too? Heehee just like what Mreow Mreow said, maybe all dec mummies engaged the same massage lady! ^^
just finished Vacuuming and Mopping my place...
what a great workout. Perspiring buckets! hehe
I am gg to Cook soon!
mamadt, my gynae in KK doesnt have 3D scanning equipment.
So ive to go direct to the ADC at Kandang Kerbau Hospital to get it done.
Im not from Thomson Medical Center so it'd cost about $361 for me to do it at Thomson Medical Center..
okok! i will go stock on Bird Nest soon too!!
Oh yah about mrt, I read frm one of the forum here, no one gives seat for preggy ladies... One of the ladies said she has to ask to get a seat.. Lol
I took mrt once with my hubby and it was a nightmare... So cramp, no one lets me sit too but worse is that i ask to give way to let me exit also ignore me until my hubby asked people to give way to me to exit. I felt so vulnerable in the train! Lol that was the first and gonna b the last time taking train in my pregnancy stage.. Hahah
Hmm MamaDT, but your tummy is actually quite big and should be obvious right, since you are on the skinny side?
Still no one give up seat for you?!
Lucky Hubby was there with you!!
I usually move about by driving but realize not much exercise done as compared to taking train and bus so i decided to give it a shot yesterday!! hahaha
Maybe ppl never give up seat to that Lady cuz her tummy like mine, not obvious also?
Sad ... dont't know y no one gives me the seat... Somemore those seated at the corner ones just stare at me, up down, look at my tummy... Then still dont't wanna give up... Arghhh angry!
Is Lizasaifi the earliest EDD mummy in this forum?
Just checking if this myth is true - if you r expecting a boy, ppl can't see that you are preggy at the back. If you are expecting a girl, it's obvious that you are pregnant from your back view... True? It's true for mine.. Lol
Yeah my EDD is coming soon...another 10 weeks or so! Hahaha one of d earliest I guess. Rite now been feeling very very tired with swollen feet n backaches at times...especially dat I walk a lot n on my feet a lot during work...every time after work go home must elevate my feet so d swell will go down...hmmm actually have not't prepared much...only bought some clothes for baby n some basic things like pillows, changing mat n mittens n booties...not buying much clothes for baby cuz will be getting some from my cousin n a friend yeah will surely share my birth story when it comes hahaha feeling very anxious n excited at d same time!
