I also just bought a few pcs of rompers for my baby girl and went back home. I was quite disappointed with the fair as I have expected the items put on sale are cheaper than what i have seen outside. The mammypoko diapers for newborn for example are actually much cheaper to get it online or at Giant hypermarket in JB.
Btw, I read from your previous post that you r using bio oil for stretch marks. May I know where did you get it? I bought palmer's @ guardian and I only applied it a few times during my early stage and stopped cos i really dont't like the sticky and oily feeling on my skin. I got abit of itchiness and red rashes on my skin too.
I learn from the Antenatal class that stretch marks will not fade away even after delivery so it's best to apply it to reduce/ avoid during pregnancies. That's the reason why I have decided to change to another brand of moisturizer to play safe than to be sorry later on.....hahahaaa
Does bio-oil have this oily/sticky feeling after applying too? Watson is selling at $15 for 15ml bottle. Do you think it's cheap?
Im planning to stock up some baby stuff from JB too! Go there very frequently...
I saw Bio oil selling at the baby expo fair!
Not sure how much though..
Hmm, I bought 2 Bio Oil bottles.
1 from Johannesburg and another from Australia.
Huh? Urs 15ml for $15? 15ml?
For me, a bottle of 120ml costs me $14.
Im still have not even finish 1 bottle!
Only apply like 2-3 times a week.
Now already in 3rd Trimester.... Omg. So lazy to use.
dont know man.
Maybe cuz At the moment I've no stretchmarks yet so I guess I'm not that motivated to use it...
Hmm. Personally to me it's not sticky. just a little oily but it does get absorbed quite fast.
But my house is quite hot so after applying, areas that have the Bio Oil feel warm. Haha.
Lizasaifi is using it too & she really swears by it!!
you should try it too!!!
Szesze, your baby is 106g less than mine!!
Glad she's got good weight!!
Yes, my edd from 18dec is Now 4dec but doc say can't confirm, must wait & see....
Mummies, heard that your babies are very veryy active!!
Haha, my gal not really lk that.
In fact, I think I can only feel her moving when I'm lying down.
Which means I only feel her moving 3 times a day?
Morning whn I wake, before I nap & before bedtime....
That's very little right? Haha
I dont know if its cuz I'm too active or what.
Mummies, another qn...
Do you all know d positions of your babies?
Like in breech or head down?
And have they changed since?
My girl has been head down since my 19week till now 29 weeks and no change...
Thought it's normal for babies to somersault in wombs but I guess my daughter doesn't like that!!
Oh initially i planned to do c-sect coz my concern is that if we go for normal delivery, 'that part' will become loose and might affect sex life... however after collecting some feedbacks from friends they said no need to worry about that.. our vagina is elastic one In fact c-sect is far more riskier & takes longer recovery time, so I decided to go for natural if Im allowed to : )
I went to the fair with hubby, sister, mum and mother in law today hoping to get good steriliser bundle from Avent or Pigeon, Ameda breast pumps, musical mobile for baby cot and Nuk brands but so disappointed that Pigeon/Ameda/Nuk/musical mobile not there... And the Avent promo bundle is same as kiddy palace.. So I didn't buy in the end.. Lol regret not buying during Taka fair... But what can I do now.. Hahahaha
I bought lotsa reusable diapers (10pcs) coz my hubby calculated that it's cheap.. Lol and California Baby stuffs sponsored by my sis and hubby bought baby's first toy (Sophie giraffe)! I was so surprised he bought that toy coz I told him it's very expensive and didn't expect him to buy! ^^ *touched* lol
My heels feel so tiring...
Feel that diapers there like very popular but the discount isn't very big ... Strange
Mreow Mreow: for the class, most daddies were there coz maybe mine is a Sunday class, so daddies are free? But the 3 lessons do require daddy's assistance and teach daddies how to massage for mummies.. So it's better to bring your hubby along yah ^^ if your hubby is not free, then the teacher will most probably assist you or pair you up with some other mummies who are alone. 1st three lessons focus more on exercises, breathing techniques, and movements that you can work on when you r experiencing contractions /in labour.
Two days ago, My baby head down on left, normal position. his head was on the right side of my tummy last month.. Lol think he enjoys somersault yah...
No , my baby's eye weren't opened during the scan so I was just thinking if your gal opened her eyes heehee
Okie I reply to here first... Rest awhile lol backache hahaha
Hi mummies! How's your weekend going? Mine been good so far. Wanted to go baby market tdy but decided against going as there's a congestion there. Hahaha anyways the things I ordered thru amazon US have arrived. My cousin helped me to order them. So happy to get them. They are a lot cheaper than buying them in SG. Hee Hee now left a few things to get before baby arrives.
Hi allele! Welcome to the December 2012 thread. I had the same situation like you. First EDD was 22nd November. Then changed to 6th December. Haha
Sze sze: goodbaby is from China? Really? Hmmm then I think hubby will not want to get it done. Maybe will stick to Nuna or another brand. oh hope you can go for natural birth. I myself not sure too whether can give birth naturally or have to c-sect. This Wednesday will ask my doc about it. As for the cloth diaper you can get them from kiddy palace. There's a few brands you can get. I bought the tollyjoy brand.
ivyb: yes I swear by Bio-Oil! It's very good! I'm already 31 weeks n I do not have any stretch marks! It also helps in relieving the itchiness. For me it's not sticky or oily. It kinda dissolved into your skin well once you rub it on your bump. I started using it from 2nd tri. So far I only bought 2 bottles as I use it sparingly.
Mreow Mreow: hey mummy! It's good to get baby things from JB. Quite cheap too. hmmm my girl was head down at the last scan at 28 weeks. dont know now. Will have to wait till this Wednesday to know whether she's still head down or had turned around. She's been really active lately. Haha
Hi MamaDT! You plan to use cloth diapers for your baby as well? It saves a lot if we use cloth diapers but at the same time Im not sure if I got the determination to keep myself changing cloth diapers everyday for my baby :P So do you found any good deals in Baby Expo today? Mind to share? Im going tomorrow
I am back from that short rest!
Sze Sze: there's Pureen cloth diapers in expo fair... standard size
Wow your gal is in good weight ^^
Hope yours can go natural birth plan then at least got the date you like quick psycho your gal everyday Hehehee
Allele: welcome to join us here!!! For me, steriliser -Avent or pigeon (depends on which bundle is a better deal)
Lizasaifi: are you back at work today? Take care of yourself yah... My new house will most likely be ready towards end of next year... another sum of $ to spend yah my boy lately super active at night after 11pm and kicks and knocks and turn... Lol then I will sing song, teach him what is night and hopefully he doesn't kick too much haha but pointless! He will just continue to punch and kick all the way even in the middle of the night even morning like 6am?!! I had some sleepless nights coz of his excitement in my womb.. Maybe he's dreaming of kungfu panda!
Momopeachgal: sudden craving for peach tea again... I think I must have been drinking plain water too much everyday till I miss all sweet teas..... Do update us on your baby when you checkup next sat yah hope baby in good weight too!!! Hope your hubby gets the benefit! Is he still on probation period in dec month?
Ivyb: Thanks for the nose bleed info! I have checked with my gynae too and she said is common coz preggy ladies will have blood vessels expanding... So even gentle touch might bleed... Now I dont't really dare to blow my nose even if I feel stuffy nose... Treating my nose like "porcelain" like that.. Fragile
Allele: yup since I have bought the reusable diapers... Lol I bought from moo moo kow in the fair...10pcs for $238 and they give extra 2 inserts and wet bag and changing mat... Can use up to 3yrs old... Lol and has a one year warranty, so if any of the buttons or Velcro or rubber is spoilt, can do one for one exchange! That's why i bought it... Giraffe is 15% off and medela freestyle is selling for $789 or $798... Hohoho there wasn't any good deal I feel.. Heee
I went down to baby fair this morning...
It was super crowded, especially lots of ppl buying diaper in "cartons"!!!
Anyway, I brought quite alot of things like breast pump bundle set, milk bottle, cloth diaper, disposable diaper as well...
I did not buy any clothes... I got quite alot from sis & relative, and it was too crowded especially ppl are carrying cartons of diaper or with stroller, it is difficult to shop...
MamaDT, Allele, ivyb, Yes, I bought 1 dozen of cloth diaper at Expo today, plus I got some together with a big box of liner from my sister... Think should be more than enough... Lol
Ivyb, I bought Bio oil at the fair, 60ml cost 15.5 but there is 10% disc, so I paid 13.95.... I think it is from unity, bcos the plastic bag they gave me is from unity...
Yes, there is kind of Chinese herb that you can boil with hot water and wash your hair, my mother in law told me dont use it for first few days during confinement... If you go Chinese medical hall, they will sell you in pack, each time use 1 pack...
Really oh? The mummypoko is cheaper if order online? Do you know which website?
Mreow mreow, my girl always head down since my Oscar test or what... But today she was head top when I was at gynae there for scanning.. Lol
She always changing her position, my gynae said he is not so worries even if she is head down, bcos baby always changing the position...
Btw, my gynae told me to start to sleep on left side... And going to see gynae more often, next appointment is 3 weeks later, then 2 wks, then every 1 wk... soon the big day comes!!!
Lizasaifi, what is cheaper from amazon? I always find order from amazon is exp bcos of the shipping charges...
Ya, goodbaby is from china, got another one is lucky baby brand which is Singapore brand... Haha... you can try to google them and see...
Another qns... what is muslin? Anyone can advise?
Sze Sze, my doc hasn't advised me on the gynae visits. So far now still once in 4weeks. Haha!
Yours 3weeks already? So fast!!
Actually I can't wait for the day!!
Pray that when it's safe enough for her to be out, let her be out!!
My gynae said I can sleep on my back!
He said to slant a little bit.
Is 1st lesson more impt than 2nd?
Hmm, will be going with my Sis on 1st.
Cuz my hubby can't make it for the 1st lesson next SAT.
He & I both flying...
Now he's already overseas & will be back 10days later.
So sad... :'(
Lizasaifi, if your gal is headdown at 28wks means sure can natural right?
Cuz my gal is like that since my 19week & every checkup till now I ask my Doc if can give birth naturally. He say can. Haha....
Doc told me the best position is if baby is headdown facing our spine...
my gal is now headdown facing up, facing my tummy.
Hope we all get the optimal position!!
My baby never somersault at all... Always in the same position!
Really wonder if she has space to move.
Mummies, did you all measure your biggest point of your stomach with measuring tape??
Wow, medela pump is Soo ex!!
My Avent bundle with other freebies is only $200+...
Hope it works just as well...
Allele, actually the worry you had regarding sex life after birth has been bugging me for some time too...
But yes, I'm sure it's elastic & our bodies are made for to go through labour..
Before preggy I wanted Csec but after falling pregnant, I wanted natural....
Nevertheless we as women will definitely worry about that...
I also read that our boobs will sag after we finish BreastFeeding.
Cuz they will go from
Big, Engorged with milk-->Big, soft with milk
-->Our original size before preggy after BreastFeeding stops.
However, they sag due to Pregnancy though,
not the fact that we BreastFeed.
I will invest in Boob Shaping bras after That.
Used them before I was pregnant & they were really good.
Somesort like a corset for Breasts
And moo moo kow is so popular.
It's not cheap right?
MamaDT you bought 10 for $238?
Waa... But if you gonna use for 3 yrs then I guess it's a good buy!!
Moo moo kow is reusable diapers but how exactly do you use it?
Saw it at expo and am clueless how to use it. Haha.....
Hi all! Tdy did spring cleaning of our room. So tired! Now then can sit n read d replies here. Haha
MamaDT: oh I'm starting work tmrw since they owe me 2 off days for d week. Hehehe my hospitalisation leave doesn't include off days you see. So they compensate my off days to this weekend. hahaha my girl always move, kick n punch around d same time every day n nite. Think now she has lesser space so can really feel her kicks n punches very hard. Yep no point telling them its nite or day. They will still do it. Hahaha where will your new house be? My bro waiting for his house in Punggol n I think he can take his keys already. He received letter from HDB yesterday.
Sze sze: what??? Bio-oil so cheap at d expo??? Man!!! I wanna go n buy tdy! Hope still have stock! Hahaha I need a new bottle soon. Oh my cousin bought thru amazon but using vpost.com.sg for shipping so still relatively cheap. I bought d summer infant swaddleme swaddles 3 in a pack, Gerber 5-pack onesies n dexbaby baby organiser which all cost me only about SGD56 plus shipping. D Munchkin baby organiser selling at $59 at Isetan n d swaddleme swaddles is $45.90 for 2 in a pack at kiddy palace. So much difference isn't it? yeah I've seen d lucky baby brand of stroller. Not bad too. Hehehe anyway will wait till baby is about 2 or 3 mths then buy.
Mreow Mreow: I do hope I can give birth naturally. It all depends on d position of d fibroids though n also my bp. Hope this Wednesday will be able to know how are d fibroids n hope it is not growing bigger. your gal same as mine. At last scan she was facing up, my tummy. dont know about now. Hahaha she's been somersaulting. But now I think she has lesser space already so dont know if she can still somersault. Hehehe I never do any measurements at all. Only when see doc n she will measure my tummy from my pubic bone to top of my womb just below my breasts. Last measurement was 31cm. I read dat it shld tallies with d number of weeks you r in maybe plus or minus 1 or 2cm. So mine is about right.
so where do you usually shop in jb? I'm a regular too as my in-laws live in JB, my hubby is a johorian. I really enjoy shopping & the food in JB.
Many s'poreans buy diapers and milk powder from jb to stock up cos it's much cheaper. (Especially from those medical hall)
My baby girl has been quite active and her punch/kicks is so powerful that i can feel a little painful at times. LOL!! I have caught her sleeping pattern. Active during night time/when I was sleeping and she usually sleeps thru the day. :S Praying hard her sleep pattern will be the opposite when she's out. hahaa
Going for my prenatal visit coming wed hopefully she is head down cos her back is laying on me in upward position during my 27wks scan. This time I will try to ask for a 3D Scan too, wonder if my gynae will do it for free of charge. :P
I was given this link by another mummy from Dec Mummies 2012 Facebook group. You can shop online for cheaper diapers at this website.http://luvbabies.kimsang.com.sg/ Happy Shopping! )
For normal delivery, I am really scared to hell that i'll be ended up with an episiotomy and also whether i'm really brave enough to go through it without any Epidural. My mum & my hubby has been complaining that I shudn't stress out myself so much and that I shud just go with the flow....but sometimes it's really easier to say than done....sigh~
I really didn't know Bio Oil costs so much more here as compared to overseas...
At least twice the price?!
Lizasaifi, I used measuring tape to measure waist size. Haha. Biggest point of my waist is now 37inches. Scarrry.
I also used the method you mentioned that your Gynae did.
Mine also tallies with my week!! Omg
Yes! It's very accurate to measure like how d gynae measure. Hahaha I had always been amazed by all this small things. Another amazing thing to happen is my gynae will like feel my tummy to know which position my gal is in. And then she will take d Doppler scanner to listen to my gal's heartbeat and it will always be at d right place! Hahaha can always listen to her heartbeat so fast n strong! Can't wait for Wednesday to come!!
Lizasaifi, how frequent are your gynae visits now?
Sigh, if I still flying now can buy extra Bio oil for you!!!
So much cheaperrrr
Also, can you pls teach me how to shop from Amazon?
I'm a total noon when it comes to buying things online...

Hahaha if you r still flying now dont think you will be in this forum rite with all of us preggy mummies? Hehehe it's ok babe. I use it sparingly so not so bad. 1 bottle can last me for more than a month. Next one I buy shld be able to last till I give birth. Hee hee
about buying online honestly I'm d same as you. It's my cousin who ordered for me using her account. I just give her a list of d items from amazon dat I want n she will order for me. from what I know she registered at vpost.com.sg where you can get d shipping done when you shop at amazon n some other websites. you can check out www.vpost.com.sg
Finally reach my 30 week. Now is counting down games.. Confirm my C-sec date on 12 dec 2012. Kind of worry if i going to stay in hospital for 2Night then my son how.. Sure miss him alot..
