She older than my mum and in law, so both of them dont dare to be so direct to say her also.
my mom saw the soup she make no Chinese herbal things, only sweet corn,potato,carrot and chicken meat. My mom tell her put some gou qi zi or dang Shen to "bu qi" if not no use to drink this kind of soup. She ignore my mom n walk to kitchen. Haha.

AnywayS, may you have a Sm00th delivery...
Yah, very old. But still can walk but slow. Her action also very slow.
My baby high jaundice level, doc say admitted to hospital ASAP to start the light treatment. I very kan jiong, change clothes, pack doc...
she slowly wrap baby, ask this ask that.
i already very pek chek , she still so naggy. sigh
My flat is the new type, the main rubbish chute is at outside, so I got a rubbish bin at the master room toilet for diaper and pads.
I think she forget a bin is there, but surprisingly, diaper can be find inside the bin also.
I tell my husband to throw in front of her to make her remember. Maybe she think is not her job to clear that bin.
Wah jenni, your nanny let baby fall asleep on her. She so big size, so dangerous.
I dont like her to carry baby to sleep. Next time baby will want ppl to carry her to sleep.
Till now, the soup is plain like water, husband keep on ask her when she going to make herbal soup.
she always repeat must after 12 days then can drink herbal. Anybody heard of this?
anyone heard of after post natal check up then can bath the herbal bath?
I saw her after changing diaper (big biz), she just use the antiseptic lotion to clear her germs, she never go toilet to wash hand then carry her. The toilet is just few steps away.

Any mummy here exp pain during urination after giving birth?
anyway, I drinking herbal soup everyday ..
i every meal is herbal soup and at late night? My CL will specially brew authentic chicken essence for me.
As for bathing, my CL boiled the herbal into two days water and I bath everyday. But once a week then I wash my hair.
For the 12 days no herbal soup I heard about it from my cousin CL. Rationale is that first 12 days is for body to purge out dirty blood so dont't drink herbal soup first. After that period drink herbal or tonic would be more beneficial to the body.
Catflying, Gou qi and dang Shen all cannot put?
Now my meal is papaya w fish head. She request fish head so she can eat the fish head.
Sweet corn w potato w carot w chicken meat
chicken w gou qi w dang shen
the soup is very plain, I think the red date is better
tea break, she ask my husband to buy biscuit for me.
sigh, my life is bad
Side dish will be broccoli w chicken breast
kai Lan w chicken breast
Every day steam fish w ginger.
Initially she wanted to deep fry fish, but I dont want to be so troublesome. The soup more important. But sigh...
Might as well order confinement meal, dont need to cook, no need to clean kitchen. No outsider in house, more freedom.
cost about The same. Maybe cheaper
First day and second day, I cannot control bladder only. I drip few drops.
now I can slowly feel the muscle coming back.
dont know anyone realize.
I feel that wearing normal pad is better than wearing matenity pad. The sting feeling is lessen.
can walk more fast.
wearing matenity pad, the thickness is so uncomfortable.

Definitely no dang Shen as it is bu qi. She drank normal chicken and fish soup for the first phase and subsequent step up to drinking herbal soup. No impact to breast feeding cos now she has two fridges full of breast milk and store only that.
Too stress for you later end up post natal depression.
Like what you said, just bear with it, another 4 more days is ya 12th day right? See what she cooks for you then, maybe ended up with very delicious herbal soup ok?
Anyone confinement on air con? Or anyone wearing long sleeves and long pants?
Given birth to my baby boy yesterday on 8pm+
Labour took more than 13 hours... Took epidural, now it's more than 9 hours but legs still numb.. Scary process. Nearly had to do csect because only dilated 3cm in 10 hours. Luckily in the last 2 hours, dilated till 8-9cm. Woah!
Took painkillers for the stitches.. Hopefully go toilet no pain..
mother in law say start confinement when I reach home. Anyone bathed after giving birth??
congrats to all who have given birth... I am still waiting (EDD 29/6/2012)... Gynae says baby engaged but i have no signs or pains or anything at all yet. anyway hope baby only pops after i start my leave next friday.
i see that some of you complaining about the things that your CL asking you to buy. can share what they asking for and the quantity? I met my CL during CNY and she passed me a long list of things to buy. something like red dates 4kg, black dates 2 kg dan sheng 2 kg etc... my parents just helped me buy some of those things and it costs us close to $300. still have some other smaller quantity of herbal stuff not bought so gotta get them this sat.
My CL did not tell me quantity to buy, we just buy and we told her that if it is finish then we buy again.
Actually my mother in law bought a lot but worried CL will stole the herbs so she rather bring over the herbs batch by batch after CL has finished using them.
Yah, confinement really spend a lot of $$$, I think my electricity for this month siong!!!
Most importantly is like what Jenni said - tell ya CL what you wanna eat and she cooks. Mine because my mother in law wants me to eat fresh food everyday so she goes market to get them everyday and it becomes a habit for my CL to become very demanding and ask for this and that - like those expensive fish like salmon and cod fish.
I already bought lock lock containers to put my sterilized breast pumps parts and milk bottles but CL keeps on nagging the containers not big enough and troublesome to use so many containers. My hubby Buay tahan and bought a bigger lock and lock container which cost $50 and my CL still said she needs 2! I was pissed and told her that 1 is enough and use the concurrent containers.
yah, confinement starts once we reach home.
Bathing I bath everyday using herbal bath, wash hair I do it once a week.
As for the stitches, after the nurses took out my gauze they told me to pee within the next 6 hours but I think I'm so afraid that totally no urge to urine. After I went, and was relieved it was not painful.
But my piles damn painful though cos they have inflated during labour.
