This is a discussion on EDD Feb 2012 within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by PandC hi Jean, i'll be at gleneagles. my hubby said Thomson MC got parking problem, Mt Alvernia ...
i'm seeing my gynae end of the month. they say we can see gender by the 4th month, i will be asking my baby to see if he/she can be guai guai and show us his/her gender.. hehe..
Thank you chjean!! I am very glad that I can find an avenue to share my thoughts and also to get advice from. I wish that more of the ladies will be able to share their experiences. This week, I am in my 7th week, things are very different from my last week's experience. This week, I dont't feel like eating but i feel very hungry... what should i do.... if I try to eat, I will have a bloated tummy which is pretty painful too I wonder if this is a normal sign?? I feel like vomitting but I try to divert my attention to something else when the feeling comes as I know i have to try to keep as much food down as possible as i do not eat a lot already do any of you mummies have the same feelings as me ???
This is my 1st and everything that I've read do not seem to be very relevant to what I am going through now, I can't talk to hubby as he is very patang and he choose to keep quiet, he say he will talk to me after 1st trimester is over as he scared something happened before we keep talking about baby. I wanted to tell him that I am not talking about baby, I am talking about myself, what I am going through.... he dont't seem to understand my agony and choose to ignore me when i really need his support sob sob
I share that too! What I do is, I eat less at each meal and snack often. Try to divide your 3 meals into 6 smaller meals to help digestion.
The bloating is because your digestive system slows down to absorb the food more thoroughly for increased nutrition for your body and baby. It is part of pregnancy and very normal!!!
The bloating can be reduced when you watch what you eat: less oily food, less salt, less sugar, less processed food and other food that is "harder to digest" or takes longer to digest (by your common sense and experience you have so far).
If you are already watching your diet but still bloating, then you'll have to ride it out. It passed after a week or two for me. It was very uncomfortable, but you must still eat as usual to get the nutrition you need.
Just relax and enjoy your pregnancy!
I am still not used to taking 6 small meals, but now, I try to eat more during lunch and cut back during dinner, like smaller portion of rice or take only soupy stuff. In fact, bloating will start normally after dinner, that's why i am changing my diet I know I have to ride it through only it's quite a ride for me now....
I guess i will only enjoy my pregnancy when i am in 2nd Tri.... that's where eating is an enjoyment and not a torture like what I am going through now
Cheers and hope all mummies out there having the joy of pregnancy!
Dear mummies and mummies to be,
I've bought this belly belt and I would like to share this wonderful product with you!
Is your little one growing in your tummy right now?
Like most pregnant ladies, do you have the headache of not being able to fit into your pre-pregnancy bottoms (shorts, skirts, pants)?
But you dont feel like buying maternity pants because they are so so expensive.
And you cant get normal bottoms in bigger size because though they fit your bulge and bum, they are too roomy for your legs!
Belly belt can solve your problem!
Even new mummies who have given birth can use this belly belt to fit into their prepregnancy bottoms almost immediately after birth!
So, how does it work?
It has four elastic bands, the belts.
Two shorter ones for earlier stages of pregnancy and two longer ones for later trimesters.
It can be fitted on buttons as well as metal clasps on bottoms.
In addition there are three pieces of cloth for you to tuck into your bottoms when your tummy grows bigger and the "gap" in your bottoms gets wider
Different colours to match different clothes, how thoughtful!
This is how it looks on my shorts.
This is the button belt without the cloth.
This is the metal clasp belt with the cloth.
And all you have to do is to wear a long top to cover it and no one can tell you are having the belly belt on!
FREE BRA EXTENDER!
Each box is selling for $29.90. Last few boxes left!
To order, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Order early and you'll get to enjoy your purchase longer!
Some reviews from satisfied mummies
anyone delivering at Mt. Alvernia in Feb 2012?
I'm also a first time mummy and EDD is in Feb'12. I just did my Oscar test last week; blood test and scan. Baby was in sitting position and only on our 3rd scan, baby was finally lying down and Sonograher can finally do the required measurements of my baby. It was a touching moment to see my baby pulling some punches and kicks.
So far i have not put on any significant weight even though i'm starting to show a little. Wonder if that is ok.
I do have some food cravings, but they are all not very healthy food, like fried chicken. Is it ok to succumb to food cravings, at least once in a while?
I plan to put my baby at infant care or with a babysitter before i return to work, estimate in May'12. Anyone can recommend infant care or babysitter at Senja (bukit panjang area)?
I'm really glad to see this thread!!
wow, your hubby really pantang. Initially, when my hubby and I got to guess that i may be preggy when i missed i period, my hubby was the one who brought it up and we could only discuss it amongst the 2 of us. My gynae was the one who suggested not to tell anyone including our parents as the foetus was not stable yet in our 6-7 weeks. We were only given the go ahead around the 12 weeks to "announce" to our parents and family members only.
Hi all, I m new here, EDD 8th Feb. I have not decide on which hospital as I can choose either Mt Alvernia or Mt Elizabeth. Anyone has any idea about this two hospitals?
Btw, did anyone sign up for antenatal course?
Hi All MTB, has anyone generated a list of what to prepare for post natal as well as for baby? For post natal, I think most of us worry about the slimming issue. My friend told me to get really the tummy shaper and bla bla and made me real confused.. Never come across these things before... How about you gal?
Hi hi... I am also kinda "pantang" this round. I had a miscarriage Jan this year. I was so happy when I found out I was preggy end last year and start spreading the news so that all my friends and family can share my joy. But many older ppl would suggest not to reveal the news till 3 months, but I simply dont believe it.
But now, I would rather believe it.. But of cuz I did tell one or two of my best friends and they have the same reaction when heard of my good news.. "shhh... dont tell other ppl"... So cute!!!!
So I am now 15 weeks 5 days.. Haha!! Really keen to know the gender...
It's still really hard to tell at 12 weeks what sex your baby is
I had my 12 week scan last week and the sonographer could see under the baby but said its very hard to tell at this stage. Likely to be a boy though but can't tell until the anatomy scan around 20 weeks. The heartbeat is 158bpm which also points to a boy..that's another old wives' tale... We shall have to wait and see.
My baby was sucking its fingers during the scan hahahah
Hehe, thanks chjean If my body is getting used to the new growth, I dont't feel anything other than the bloating and the gas I have in my tummy. Is this a normal sign???
I have a Medela Mini ELect Plus ( DUal pump ) and city pack ( Cooler Bag ) to let go.
Used it only twice n no fluid pass through the parts.
this is bought locally in Feb this year and I still have the receipt and warranty.
PM me if interested =)
Hi all mothers to be in Feb'12
I was silent follower of this thread for quite sometimes.. When I intend to join this thread my doctor confuse me again..dotz! All along doctor told me my EDD was around 1st week of Feb'12 but yesterday after he measure the size of the baby in the scan, he said 29 Jan..lol..so I dont know which 1 now...
Since I get familiar to names here, i just start the talks here
no worries be it Jan or Feb, you can always tread at these 2mths. My EDD around 2nd week of Feb, just went for my scan today is a baby girl... no words can express how much i feel, tears just rolled down...
Enjoy the rest of our pregnancy!
any mummies experiencing weight gain? how's your progress?
i went to my gynae's on monday and found I only gained 1 kg in this 1 month! I'm 50kg now which is a normal weight for my size.
i'm now almost 18 weeks, but my gynae says the growth is normal so not to worry!
