Ladies, saw alot of messages re baby shower. Can I ask if we invite ppl to buffet, still need to give them the cake set or voucher? Yet to plan the guest list but thinking with relatives in, around 100 plus headcount. May end up having to hold 2 days. just thinking about it super tired.
I was just flipping through some of my hubby's baby photo, and i realized his head also quite big. Oh nooo.. At my next checkup must ask doc about my baby's head size.
I wonder if doc can tell if baby has any hair from the scan? I was botak until about 2 yr old. I hope my baby has some hair, else i would have to buy more hats for her...
Went for checkup today! Baby 1.9kg now. I never gain again. Baby position is ready for natural birth. While doing some detail scan, my boy actually keep kicking the gynea's scan stick. Legs open wide apart for gynea to scan when say to confirm again on gender.. really not shy boy!
Was told if water sg broke or contraction more then5 time in 1hr then go hospital. If blood show or lesser movement can just go clinic. We ask if happen at nite, for the later 2 case can wait for next day then go clinic.
i saw the price for cake vouchers etc, its the most ex packages. no option for lesser price. So i dont think i will be giving cake vouchers. I feel like this is giving wedding cakes all over again, although is only give relatives, but the cakes so many and so sinful. I think when they receive also scared for their cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure.
some more today, while shopping for baby clothes, i heard one couple (with bigger children) comment, housewarming and baby shower are the most "lose money" affairs. and i thought wedding is loss money...the "best" is yet to be
Baby shower sure lost money a lot one! Hear from my mum, most relative will give about $20 to $30 then whole family come for buffet. Friend most give more like $50 or buy share buy gift. I count my side sure lost about 1k or so.
Anyway I dont expect to earn, just dont let me lost too much
Haha, I was just telling my hubby if friends ask what gift we need for baby shower, we will just let them know we want Ang Bao instead.
Though wil def be tired, we will need 2 days shower. One for friends n the other for relatives. with buffet n the cake set / voucher, think at least 2k. Def making a loss but guess no choice. I was hoping can do wifout the buffet but both side of parents want it.
Maybe can order fewer dishes instead? Buffet scared got lots of leftovers
hi meilynn, gynea never mention on earlier EDD, just say have to take notice of any signs of labour, cos baby is in position.
i going to have the baby shower whole day, afternoon for relatives, evening to nite for friend. dont think relative will stay long also if see so many friend come over. buffet will divide out to 2 sessions also.
for my relative about 60plus pax, order buffet for 45pax. friend about 40plus, order 35pax. usually friend dont eat much. just scared got relative want to tabao. think will tell them later got friend come, cant tabao.
I hope mine split 2 days too.. one at my in-law's house and one at my house (cum housewarming).. cos my hubby's relatives also alot (and also many kids) and I dont want them to crowd my house and clash with my own friends and colleagues... my own relatives, mostly only inviting my grandma and 2 uncles so not many...
Ok, I was wondering how come some gynae can tell the change in EDD at early part of the 3rd trimester. My gynae just told me only nearer the EDD then can better predict if any change in EDD. Make sense thou.
Well, initially thinking of having 1 full day baby shower but 2 sessions. However, worried will be very tired so decided on 2 days instead. So you getting your caterer to come in 2 times? Else the food cannot keep for so many hours.
Try not to feel disappointed. Believed your hubby meant no ill. Guys are just not sensitive at times. you can try to tell your hubby how you felt whenever he behave 'like what' re your feelings.
I was having very bad cramplike pain last nite. Sorta breathless too so told my hubby. He was on his phone playing game so no response at all. I waited like 5 mins he also never look over at me once.
I was very Disappointed then so I told him that I expect him to at least ask after how I was feeling. He was abit annoyed n commented that he cannot do much re my ccondition too. When I heard this, I felt even worse so I kept quiet n turned away. After a while, he sorta Realised that he hurt me with his remarks so he started asking if he do this if he do that can help my pain.
Actually at that point in time, watever subsequent action he did is pointless as the moment that I need his attention n concern was gone. However, when I think back later in the nite, being a guy, he can never truly understand how emotional we are during pregnancy. Thus, no point feeling upset when he may never know y we behave in certain manner. Guess we need to have such ' Q' spirit else we just make ourselves unhappy. End of day, our hubby do care n love us in his oown manner, this is what is impt.
So mummies, if you ever feel upset re how your hubby behave, dont be k! Rem you always have us here to share n care we all jia you k!
Yes, men will never know what we are going thru... My hubby always commented that I walked very slow then I tell him he shld try walking with a big tummy thn he know... Some how I think dragging them to pre-natal class help a little, at least he now understand why I need to visit the loo often, the backache n other conditions... Cause he heard it from trainer himself so he will not say I made it up as excuses.
Jie Mei men, we must jia you, another few more weeks!
Went for check up on thur and baby is now 1.5kg. Turning 33 weeks tomorrow. Was having fever since thur and doc asked me must rest well and careful because getting big. Been feeling cranky too. Feel myself useless at work too, can't seem do help anything at work. Alway feel tired and backache getting worse. My colleagues got to help me and I ffeel that I'm a burden to them.
ya will ask the caterer to come twice. if not food finish during the 1st round, 2nd batch guests no food to eat.
i just want to do 1 day then can rest more on other day. also clean up onli once.
true, try not to feel disappointed w/ hubby. the other day nite having a small talk to hubby regarding baby shower. have some disagreement. both us just stop n quiet, he continue w/ his game, while i go back room to cool down n cry, baby keeps kick non stop also. i just felt been bully by both father n son. but next morning huddy just change his mind, give n take w/ my way to do the baby shower. sometime guy r just not sensitive to some issues or our feeling.
anyway, just forgive n forget. they r still our loving hubby who love us in their own way....
jia you jia you.. a few more week to see our little cuties...
Dear RedDevil, priority now is for you to get well n rest more. Cranky moodswings a norm just make sure you dont stay cranky too long. baby will feel our moods so do try to maintain a positive mindset. If backache really very bad, go for a hot shower n use your shower spray on the affected area follow by getting your hubby to do some simple back rub. Wil tend to ease the soreness though not all.
How can you feel that you r useless when you are about to bring a life into our world soon. This is a miracle by itself. In life, no matter how self sufficient one is, we will need helping hands beside us one time or another. Now is the time we need such help. When we in better situation we will also extend help to others be glad that your col is willing to help you. you have good col. Some col I heard very selfish n not willing to help at all.
just few weeks more. Stay healthy n positive k!!
