MamaDT: yes I have, just that i never type out here cos its kinda embarassing T.T
sidetrack a bit.. the facebook dec mummies page i saw a video about a baby like tryin to push her way in her mummy's tummy. So cute!! its so hard to capture that kind of video. Guess i will try tonight to see if i could do it too! but my baby's action not as powerful as her baby's ^^

HAha.. quite worth the money if become member.. free parking.. also get cash voucher with no expiry date every 100 spent.. much more worth it than credit card cash back and points hahaha.. shop shop shop..
Yes I'm in malaysia now planning to go there give birth cheaper
1KG can eat whole month hahaha
Momopeachgal: that one is yingzy's baby... Lol mine only this powerful for very short while and not so often( 1 day avg 2 times) ... By the time I start to take out my camera and video... Bo ... Lol couldn't catch it everytime... Lol wish mine can do longer then go time to video haha and I do drink half a mug of teh-o at Hm maybe twice a week and a few times teh ping when I am at kopitiam heehee
Momopeachgal: Yea, hopefully my baby can hit the 2kg mark...then I can be more assured that she will not be too underweight at birth. My gynae's clinic is actually near my place at Admiralty, but he delivers at Mt A. What about yrs?
About your coffee question, I heard that 1 cup is still considered ok...although the best is to hold off till after deliver. I'm more of a tea person than coffee, but have not been drinking tea since falling pregnant. To avoid me over-thinking whether is 1 cup too much....haha
MamaDT: I also have no idea why my EDD is pushed backwards...but one possible reason is maybe my baby's on the smaller side? If that makes any sense....lol
Hi mummies! I just got home from hospital. Had my postnatal check up tdy n all went well. Stitches are healing well n doc gave d green light to go for postnatal massage n also to ride bike again with hubby! Yaay! Funny thing was my doc is a biker guy too so he n hubby had some time talking about bike racing! Lolz as for baby princess she's doing well too. Slept so peacefully just now as she held my finger. Hee hee
Mreow Mreow: wow it's been a long time since I went jb! Hahahaha since I got pregnant n banned from riding bike! Miss shopping there. Regarding d nursing bra, it's best to get them after you give deliver so you will know your right size. I bought some from a shop called pretty international which sells lingerie. They have a range of nursing bras selling at quite reasonable price. Bought 4 n they are comfy. Hehehe
momopeachgal: drinking coffee is ok as long as moderately....one cup a day is fine but better if you can drink it like every few days once...d caffeine mite affect d absorption of calcium...when I was still pregnant I had coffee only when I had really strong craving for it Hehehehe otherwise I will drink hot milo or just plain water
Hi Honeyfiedcherry n pink2purple! I'm actually supposed to be a dec mummy too. EDD was 6 December but baby was delivered early due to some complications. So I became an October mummy but still active here. Hehehe my princess is still in nicu n I delivered at NUH. good luck n all d best for your last few weeks of pregnancy! May you have a smooth delivery ya.
MamaDT: Woo! hhaa babies seems like know we r trying to video them! Maybe yingzy tried a lot of times and just nice kena the right timing hee.. so you totally never touch coffee ?? I seldom touch coffee but recently i have very strong craving for coffee =( I drink teh sometimes haha..
pink2purple: your baby will hit 2kg mark! =D o my gynae's clinic is in Mount A. that y i delivering at Mount A =) wooo icic.. sometimes i wonder 1 cup is how much.. what if my cup is very big hehe..

Momopeachgal: I'll only be working on Mon and Fri next week...as i'm trying to clear leave too. Hrmm maybe I'll start washing a few of the baby's clothes first

Momopeachgal: haha thinking very hard whether I had coffee.... Yes I did once in my pregnancy only... Heehee small cup but aroma was damn good!! Just couldn't resist it that time haha
There's parenthood fair now.... you can shop there haha
Liza: your princess looks so cute sucking the pacifier and ohhhh so sweet on her finger touching you and sleeping soundly... I can't wait for December to come! Lol
5 weeks + 2 days to my EDD... I am left with baby cot and bedding set and the cordlife thingy to settle... Plus trying to build up my iron level to normal level!! ^^
Hi Liza, your princess is so strong ! I had complications during my first trimester, nobody knew if she would make it .. But so far so good ! She's so active I would wince and suddenly double over from her kicks that people would look at me funny .
Anyway, where is the shop you bought your nursing bras located ? Am really nervous about breastfeeding, I had to stop at 3 mths for my first son due to low milk supply .
MamaDT: yeah she held my finger n just slept on with d pacifier in her mouth...hubby told me last nite when he was there she cried so much until face become red2...d nurse was asking where's her mummy...I didn't go yesterday cuz had to rest...she was quiet tdy when I was there n slept most of d time...only woke up once n opened her eyes big2 when I held her then fell aslee again hee hee 5 weeks gonna go by fast! Jia you to you too dear!
Honeyfiedcherry: that is great dat she's so active! My princess was very active too when I was still carrying her in my womb. She would kick n punch at always d same timing every time every day n who would have thought I had complications. It was mostly due to my blood pressure which went up when I got to 3rd trimester. Was hospitalised 3 times n d 3rd time was d longest until I delivered at exactly 34 weeks. D other mummies here know all about my hospitalisation periods. Hahaha my princess was born on 25 October. She's now 2 weeks n been in d nicu since birth. Since she's premature she can only take breastmilk. I have to express my breast milk at hm n freeze them before bringing over to d hospital for my princess. I'm hoping to bf her exclusively once she's discharged. But before dat she has to learn to latch on n dat mite be happening next week.
I think there are supplements like fenugreek you can take to increase milk supply. When I was in hospital after delivery one of d ward doctors prescribed me a pill called Maxalon. It really helped me to produce colostrum n after I was discharged I managed to produce milk already within 2 days. oh d shop name is called pretty international n they have outlets at Amk central, toa payoh central, the bencoolen n tampines mall. Anywhere near where you live?
Any mummies know where to buy BathTub & Stand?
Hows the parenthood fair?
Got anything to buy?
Didn't finish my Shopping at JB! Haha...
Lovepixie, sounds lk a good deal To Be a Jusco Member! Is there a fee to register?
Lizasaifi, I think your princess missed your presence the other day thats why she kept crying when your hubby was there!!!
She knows her mummy...
Ooh, so it's better to buy Nursing Bra after delivery ... I thought so too but I dont't think I will go out after delivery..
Can just standby afew?
Pretty international sounds familiar!!
I will go check out the Tamp Branch!
Momopeachgal, thanks for your explanation!
I understand what you mean by the hooks thing!!
Honeyfiedcherry, I dont't think I will buy nursing tops! Haha.
Will try to make do with my current clothes!!
as I have done with my pregnancy now w/o maternity wear...
Hmm, maybe if after delivery then see how!!
Quite ex, nursing wear!!
Some caffeine is ok mummies...
I've been drinking some as well...
Especially my Bubble green tea and
Those homemade ice lemon tea at coffee shops..
My gal has no reaction after my caffeine intake.. Haha
Thought babies are supposed to be more active after mummy takes a caffeinated drink...
Mummies who find it hard to film their babies' movements,
Put a small light object on your tummy when baby is kicking then video!!
With the object, it's much more obvious that your tummy is moving.
I used my contact Lens casing and Hubby's HP cover to try...
Can tell baby is kicking cuz the object on my tummy is like bouncing.
Liza, am staying at chua chu kang, but will be staying over at mom's place at Pasir Ris after delivery . Tampines mall sounds good ! I should go there when I have the energy, it's so tough to waddle around nowadays !
I think after delivery I will ask doc about increasing milk supply, am going for checkups at Kandang Kerbau Hospital and they are very rushed, no time to ask about what is going on w our body, I dont't even know how much my baby weighs ! Next time I'm going to a private hospital .
Mreow Mreow, i myself am trying to figure out where to get nice nursing tops ! I'm thinking of just getting shawls .. Have been going thru classifieds and there are people selling second hand nursing tops, but they dont't look very nice . Haha .
I went for my check up today and Dr say my baby weigh only 2kg at 35 weeks 4 days.
Dr say by looking at my placenta baby is getting enough nutrients and ask me not to worry.
I can't help to stop worrying because i got to know average weight for my baby supposed to be around 2.5
Sad sad sad
Welcome to the forum!!
please dont worry...
you should really trust your doc's words...
If he thinks your baby is fine, your baby is good.....
Where did you get the average of 2.5kg from?
Is it Other mummies?
Or Iphone apps like BabyCentre or those other pregnancy apps?
Some of the apps are catered more to Caucasiann women and their babies..
And are therefore heavier in weight.
My gal is a little heavier than yours..
She's 2.2kg on my last checkup when i was 33weeks.
Doc estimated that she'll be about 3kg at birth...
Also, the scanning is subjective, differs with every gynae and the weight is just a guage.....
Most of the time when babies are born, their weight differs by 100-300g!!
Dont worry too much ok!!
Especially when your Doc say everything is ok.
Prettygem, mreow mreow, my gynae told me so long the baby cross the borderline of 2kg, it is good, even they come out early should be fine, dont worries...
he told me that world wide average including all races is between 2.5kg-4kg at birth is consider normal weight....
He expected my baby would be around 2.8kg at birth... To me it is fine, although I looking forward to 3kg also...
will try to eat more meat and protein...
Heard eating durian can increase the weight also, some mummies here also mentioned this previously, but I did not bcos I dont like to eat...
Prettygem, Jia you... Still have 4 weeks time to gain more weight... And relax... dont worry...
Mreow Mreow: Hahahaha yeah d nurse said dat too dat princess knows when I'm not around. Tdy n tmrw gonna spend d day with her again.
Yeah you can get a few nursing bras now but make sure it's a size bigger. your breasts will expand once your milk kicks in. Talking from experience here. Hahahaha I'm 2 cup sizes bigger now.
Mummies dont worry so much about your babies weight. It's mostly an estimate from d scans. As long as they are more than 2kg they shld be doing fine. even my princess has to hit 2kg before she can be discharged.
I just come back from my check up...
good news and bad news... I losing weight as compared to my last checkup... But surprisingly, my little girl gain another 0.7kg since two wks ago, increase from 2kg (wk34) to 2.7kg (wk 36)!!!! Next appointment will be two weeks later....
Knowing little girl is healthy and well growing is kind of encouragement and relief....
Liza, your girl definitely recognize your voice when you holding her, talking and kissing her.... She miss you a lot!!
glad that you can start massage and get ready to welcome your little princess to be home!! Then you can have full concentrate on her by then! Hee...
you are indeed the only one with The most experience now!!
My LilyPie Ticker signature below never update itself at all.
Still states I'm at 33 weeks. Wdh....
Haha. dont know wads wrong..
I wish my doc will see me 2weeks from my last apptmt!!
But he scheduled it 3weeks apart!!
I'm also keen to spy on my baby gal's development in utero!!
By the tym see her on my 37th week, will be too late to do anything.
Like incase she's not heavy enough or what...
Honeyfiedcherry, you are under subsidized at Kandang Kerbau Hospital ?
Lizasaifi is right.
How can The Docs be so slipshod?!
Hmm, you go to Clinic B/D for your checks is it...
Cannot be TPS right... Cuz mine there isn't like that...
