This is a discussion on Edd dec 2012 within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Mreow Mreow, I think gripe water is super important and really handy to have around ! Must carry wherever you ...
Mreow Mreow, I think gripe water is super important and really handy to have around !
Must carry wherever you go, haha . Mum swears by it .
I had laksa many times too ! Tho trying to reduce the intake of seafood like cockles and such .. Sad .. I can't even have half boiled eggs and sushi .. Sushi is a must after birth !!
Omg!! I want sashimi!!!! Lol
Babe!! My hubby restricting me from laksa coz of cockles hahaa.. I love cockles
Oh the java chip quite sweet ... We can take now huh? Heehee
Y you can't take teh peng now?
Oh yah! Gripe water..... Can b bought from downstairs easily so I buying at last min that kind... If need then buy
But there are some people who says newborn can't drink gripe water? I dont know why...
Oh and medicated oil.... My house have so it is already available haha but I will try not to put too much on baby unless really reallllllyyyy needed....
Are we ready ? Few more weeks to go !
Is gripe water = fei zai shui (fatty water)? LOL.. I heard of it but totally no idea what is it for. Sounds like a miracle water to me.. haha..
MamaDT, please dont't say sashimi .. I can argue w my husband about it ! Haha ! For the sake of baby, I resisted !
Cockles too, trying not to eat .. So dangerous ..
Think cannot drink teh peng cause of caffeine ! I drink teh peng almost everyday, I feel so so guilty ..
Allele, gripe water is mostly for stomach upsets, due to wind and such .. Babies usually accidentally swallow too much wind when they cry or if they latch wrongly .. Haha, I wonder what fatty water is !
I initially brought the whole pack of maternity pads but when i went for the hospital tour that day, they said it will be provided for us ans when i asked can we just bring our own without using hospital they cannot answer cos they said it will be provided. So i guess i will only bring 2 samples which i've got. I'm not bringing breast pumps cos anyhow, i will try to latch on. Unless I really have too much, then might ask my hubby to go home take cos we are taking 2-bedded and if even change to 1 bedded, he will still go home and shower so will then ask him bring for me.
Will you be bringing slippers? it's stated in Thomson Medical Center website but my usual footwear is already slippers. Wondering still need to bring?
Ok i'm really so tired gotto sleep ! good night!
I dont take cockles too!
you can always eat the Laksa w/o cockles!!
Java Chip can drink!
I asked for Skim Milk, makes it less sweet!
Cuz i think TehPing has quite high caffeine content!!
So I cut it out from my diet.
Used to have it everyday Pre-preggy days!!
But I think I might drink next week
Oh no I didn't know it has higher content of caffeine than other teas.... Sian I better refrain refrain refrain...
Laksa without cockles but the soup that vendor makes already has cockles dipped in before... This is what my hubby said... And so.... I resist resist resist
Cherry Blossom, y you tired? Did a lot of shopping? Heehee
Thanks for sharing! I think I will bring 5 pieces there in that case and yah I also have been wearing slippers, will be wearing slippers there but I've brought a pair of bedroom slippers coz I think I will b wearing socks most likely as I am afraid of feeling too cold after delivery. And my socks aren't the toe socks kind... So cannot fit into usual flip flops heehee...

Average fetal length and weight chart | BabyCenter
prettygem: girl dont worry about the weight of the baby okie? my gynae says its different for every babies one.. and doctor only based on some measurements and then estimate the baby's weight. So your baby might actually weigh more than it's shown.. anyways.. as long as your baby is healthy.. shld be okie .. and most imptly.. your doctor told you baby is getting enough nutrients =) dont worri okie!
Sze Sze: wow wow! your baby is 2.7kg already!!! she is growing very fast thats good! ^^

Some people tell me teas have higher caffeine content than coffee !
Now it's so hard to sleep .. Hard to breathe, can't get comfy, feel so hot when hubby complains it's actually cold .. Turn this side, sore back .. Turn that side, sore shoulder ! Wah piang ..
Momopeachgirl, dont't tempt me with the medium rare beef, I used to have it almost every week before getting pregnant !
Best to bring breast pump to hospital with you, if you are not leaking yet, you might not be after delivery .. Some mums have to pump first to remove some kind of plug on the nipples before milk starts flowing ..
ooh talking about wanton mee.. this is crazy.. i disliked wanton mee pre-preg and one year maybe eat twice that kind... and always eat three mouth dont want already... nowadays.. i crave tomato base wanton mee every week and i can finish the whole plate clean clean.. weirddddddddd
makes me wonder if it's really baby that wanna eat then makes mummy crave for the food... hmmm
my baby seem to have alternate moods.. hahaha one day happily active whole day another day quiet until night time when going to sleep then dancing in the tummy.. lol..
my diet has been quite unhealthy last week.. dont't know y i just wanna eat al sort of food that is unhealthy.. haha and i chose to drink fresh milk for weeks rather than powder milk that's meant for mamas to drink..
As for baby's fm, i intend to buy only after delivery heehee to me,if i really can't provide breast milk, i think any brand of fm is ok as long as baby's poo looks ok and poos easily..
Mummies: are you all drinking the maternal powder milk or fresh milk? Also, is it ok if i drink the maternal powder milk if say i have opened the tin for about 2 mths?
Hello mummies! Sorry for being MIA for d past few days. Was busy going to n fro d hospital attending to princess n learning how to change her diapers, gives her milk during her feeds, pacify her when she cries n just being there for her n cuddle her. It is an amazing experience really to be looking after your own baby. I think now princess already recognised her mummy's smell n touch cuz when she cried n I carry her she wld calmed down n just give me this relieved look. Hahahaha but sadly I wun be able to try to latch on yet. Nurse said I can try sometime end of this week since princess will turn 37weeks gestational age tmrw. So i'm looking forward to it. Tmrw gonna ask d doctor about it if she's around.
momopeachgal: hello! Happy 35th week to you babe! are you prepared? dont get too stressed up or worry about d impending D Day. just get more rest n put your feet up since now you must be waddling already rite? Hehehe oh Pretty International is opposite d Bata near McDonald's at AMK central babe. If I'm not wrong it's beside an optical shop, along d same side as Hang Ten.
Mreow Mreow: have you washed baby's clothes? Another 5 weeks to go babe! Hahaha it will come sooner than you think.
Oh mummies. I read dat all of you were talking about whether to bring maternity pads n breast pump to hospital. From experience no need to bring them as maternity pads are provided by d hospital. If you want maybe just bring a couple. As for breast pump, d colostrum that is gonna flow out first will be too thick to be pumped out. Not sure if a pump will be able to do it. For me d lactation consultant collected my colostrum using a syringe. And your milk flow will only kick in like 2 or 3 days ltr. If you are delivering naturally you will only stay like 2 days n lactation consultant will teach you to latch on. So I think it's not necessary to bring a breast pump to hospital. Well that is my two cents worth of opinion. Hehehehe up to you mummies to decide wats best for you n baby ya.
Alright time for me to express breast milk. See you mummies again! Have a great week ahead!
Honeyfiedcherry: I read(dono if its true) online that tea has higher caffeine than coffee before processing.. After processing actually coffee have higher caffeine content than tea =p dono if its true or not and yes, i find it hard to sleep also already. Grasping for breath all the time.. my hubby covers himself in blanket every night and me no need blanket one haha.. oo medium rare beef is your fav too lol! mine too!! but i dont have it almost every week .. Ok i shall bring my breast pump along too with my hospital bag!!
MamaDT: Wooo, i like tomato based wanton mee lol.. but i am a fan of want ton mee actually.. so for your case i tink if your baby who wants to eat want ton mee hehe.. my diet recently becomes very unhealthy too.. chocolates, chocolate cakes, chocolate ice cream.. carrot cake, chwee kueh, char kuay tiao.. fried chicken, macdonald fries.. all the unhealthy food comes to my mind! usually i drink low fat milk but 2 days ago i went NTUC to buy full cream milk! i tink i gonna become a fatty bom bom.. and read from some other threads any FM is good as long as baby is suitable for it and likes it? i am drinking the HL low fat milk.. you mite want to check your maternal milk powder for the expiry date!! a few days before, baby is inactive sometimes.. but these few days my baby is very active.. good in a way.. but bad when i m sleeping cos he keep moving his hands and legs.. cos yesterday night i can feel more than 1 small small lumps all night long lol
lizasaifi: thanks Mummy!!! I am preparing hospital bag these few days.. though items r not fully bought, left 1 or 2 ... hehee.. oki i shall keep relaxed!!! i just hope baby will be good and head down so that i can go by natural delivery! yes i m waddling already hahaha... my friend say i look like penguin =D oo i know where is Pretty International already! so its near to amk hub.. I wil go there! thanks babe!! =) you have a great week ahead too ya!!!

Alamak! dont need to bring maternity pads? That day I bought a pack of Kotex maternity pads and disposable undies from the Kandang Kerbau Hospital pharmacy store. I saw this loop pad thing as well, does anyone know how to use it?
I'm gonna bring breast pump too. Intend to use this small cabin trolley for my expected 3 days stay cos most likely have to go for c section. So I rather bring more stuff than less cos dont wanna feel stress for having left some items at home when it's needed!
Might be a silly question, do we need to bring out strollers?
Yikes my post was cut off. Is everyone on maternity leave already?
Momopeachgal: I am so glad you r craving as much unhealthy stuff as me hahaa I feel less guilty the expiry date of milk powder is till 2014! But... They say should discard 1mth after opening ... I dont know why haha I think very wasted to throw... dont know can drink or not haha
dont't intend to bring breast pumps. But will pack in a cooler bag with sterilise tablet so that my mum can help bring to hospital if needed
Liza: hope your princess can latch on you tml! ^^ sweet bondings between mum and daughter. Nice!
Beenies: I am on long leave.... I have been at home very long already heehee I have no strollers for newborn. And yup bringing the adhesive pads to hospital
I think cockles is good if cooked properly. My nutritionist at antenatal class told me its rich in iron. Since I low in hemogoblin I better eat more iron source
The Kotex loop need a belt. It's sold near the sanitary pad as well. My mom highly recommend this and said if dowan wear underwear also can. Just wear belt n the pad by itself.
I think it's safer to drink maternity milk than fresh milk. I heard from the same nutritionist that it is better to drink milk that has been pasteurised. She advised against eating ice cream cos they dont't use pasteurised milk to make.
Beenies: i bought a pack of adhesive maternity pads from Kiddy Palace I think about $8.70.. forgot how many pads inside but feel its good enough for the hospital stay. guess will bring it along if hospital never provide, at least i have it.. dont tink we need to bring out strollers..when baby discharge with you , carry in your arms I m not on maternity leave yet, but will go beginning of dec.
MamaDT: haha yes.. i m craving unhealthy food too =) wooo then i think you better not drink the powder already.. who is the one who said shld discard 1 month after opening? the packaging itself stated that or what? how to use the sterilise tablet ahs? use for what since now you mentioned about it =p
lovepixie: oo~ usually cockles are half cooked.. so i usually ask the stall owner to omit the cockles whenever i eat laksa or char kuay tiao =D~
Hi mamadt, you took long leave for your pregnancy? I wanna ask doc if I should start my leave a week earlier cos I wanna keep the twins inside for as long as possible, they still very tiny at 1.5kg now and I'm having that braxton contractions so scary!
Lovepixie! Thanks for the info! Think ill stick to the maternity pads. Kinda weird to wear a belt .
Momopeachgal, after I bought the maternity pads I was wondering if its similar to our whisper sanitary pads! Like no diff between a normal pad and the maternity ones
Beenies: yalor i feel that the maternity pads r just the same as normal pad, those normal big pads... but i just buy the maternity pads from Kiddy Palace since the price is okie hehe.. if i m not wrong the brand is Pureen =)
By the way mummies! I have totally forgotten about buying coconut to drink Now dono will it be too late or not. I scared i buy wrong coconut to drink .. can anyone tell me where to buy the correct coconut ??? in Singapore.. =) thanks in advance!!! i need to go buy and drink ..!!
and i asked my gynae when is a good time to start taking leave he told me 2 weeks before EDD
Question: We heard that we cannot touch water during confinement. After birth in hospital, when we r in the hospital, we need to brush teeth, wash face etc. so how r we going to rinse off the toothpaste?
and can we apply moisturisers? If we do, we need to wash face the next day also rite? How to wash when we cannot touch water? lols sorry if i souind silly

Looks like all the Mummies are so active in Forum today!!
As I'm writing this post, im drinking Blueberry Bubble PearL Green Tea!! Yum Yummm
Its such an awesome day todday too!
Nice rainy weather..
Now as a Preggy, I crave such weather Cuz if not spore is too warm!!
If i'm not pregnant like my friends, i'll be damn sian Cuz i cant run any errands or get anything done with rain!!
Then if working, will feel sleeeeeepy...
Lizasaifi & MamaDT, ive not washed Baby's clothes!
I will post when Ive washed Baby's clothes..
Have not bought Kodomo yet ... Haha..
I know im super slack..
My hubby keep saying 'Ure so relax, not scared ?'
Deep down I know he likes me like that. Rather than KanChiong and Kiasu.. HAHA
Anyway I think i will wash on the 20th Nov!!
Ahhhhh was finishing up my reply and *poof* I pressed the wrong button and everything is gone... Fat finger's fault.... Lol
My hubby will not let me have cockles no matter what... Haizzzz anyway, I like to eat 50%-70% cooked cockles...
I have been taking beef, spinach and broccoli to increase my iron intake. My gynae says can eat medium well beef
Momopeachgal: I hope we can touch warm water? I am bringing a soft small towel to soak it with warm water to wipe my body and face if my mother in law says cant bathe in hospital after delivery
Bringing wet wipes as well to wipe hands, body and legs too... Haha bringing body lotion as well so that I dont smell haha and moisturizer to hydrate my face coz I heard after delivery, mummy's face will usually be drier.....
Also, if we can touch bits of warm water, I think that can solve the rinsing of mouth part for brushing teeth else, bring a cup, and pour water then rinse our mouth ...... Lol
Sterilise tablet is put into a container of water, put the bottles or pumps you wanna sterilise Into the steril water container, soak it for half an hour before use
I bought young coconut from shop n save
So how's baby's room deco? Happy Bo? Heehee
Mreow Mreow: I am a mummy who plans a lot and even need backup plans kind in case plan a fails, then plan b... Lol so I tend to purchase things in advance to ensure the stuff I wanna use is avail when I need it. Lol and maybe coz I am afraid I go labour anytime (due to my 2nd trim condition where i was strapped on CTG and stuff in labor ward), so I just wanna ensure that I have at least the minimum stuff avail... Heehee
Happy washing clothes on 20/11! Haha wash already then can pack bag .... Lol
Beenies: yah I took hospitalisation leave and stay at home coz I have nightmares visiting hospital during my first trim and sec trim

Its absolutely alright to drink Fresh Milk bought from Super markets!
They are pasteurized!
In fact, almost 99% of milk in Spore is pasteurized..
The only milk that isnt pasteurized is those Milk taken directly from animal farms.
And in Spore, we dont take those type of milk anymore...
Unlike the olden-our-parents-times when people deliver freshly-squeezed milk to households in bottles...
I've been Drinking Meiji Skim Milk in this Pregnancy..
Lovepixie, its ok to take Fresh Milk as its pasteurized
Pasteurized just means Heating & going through some reactions to kill Bacteria.
In fact, UHT milk in those Tetra Pack is also ok to drink...
Canned Powder tin milk Meant for Preggies are ok too.
However, they do cause Extraaa weight gain as compared to those fresh milk!!
As they have more solidified Milk Fats & solids and are much more concentrated.
Yup, we've to avoid Soft-Serve Ice Cream as they also use Eggs that arent fully cooked to make the icecream...
The eggs are just cracked into the flour mixture & freezed to make IceCream!
Actually Laksa Can eat..
Even if like your hubby say its in the Laksa water, he also mentioned that its boiled right?
Boiled water will kill the Germs already..
But since he restrict you, then you give him face & dont eat ... HAHA
Now must be Xiao Nu ren & listen to our Hubbies'!!
Dont think you've to bring Strollers..
Have not seen anyone leaving Hospital with Strollers after Labour..
For your case, Ive seen Mummy carrying 1 Twin, Grandma carrying another twin & Daddy carrying Baggage! HAHA
I agree that the pads look similar!
However, difference is that Maternity pads are cheaper right?
I bought Kotex Maternity Pads & Kotex Loops & a Pink Packaging Spring Brand.
The spring brand's length is 32cm!
I like it long & wide!!
Ooh, so the loops have to be used with a belt ..
Ok I have to Buy the belt too!!
Honeyfiedcherry, How do you administer the Gripe water to baby?
Just straight to the mouth or mix with milk?
