So good, you all dream of baby!
I keep having nightmare of the maids at home....can't sleep well these few days. Woke up fuming!
got a confinement lady demand her arrival angbao and departure angbao to about $200 each. I just pengz...very greedy. some more her fee is $2500.
The one i hire is $2.2k. Cheap meh? i thought is the standard market rate for this year.
$2.2K is the standard rate nowadays for day and night confinement lady.
the recent one is they even hang my bedsheet out at night to dry under the moon despite me telling them many times not to hang clothes out. And these few nights were stormy and they dont even bother to wake up to take the clothes in!
ya many stories....i have to close both my eyes to stop myself from exploding.
The one i hiring, bring in herbs from malaysia to hard-sell us and its not cheap. She even mentioned it more superior than the one sold in SG. i abit regret hiring her but i also gave up finding other confinement ladies.
Esoterice, oh ya I think I know what you mean.. It's a slip of paper that one right?
Ya I need to get that the next time I see the dr n put in together w the pre-admission papers...
fact, she just give me a list re most of the essential items I need for confinement n tell us can get it from SG shops.
Think this year dragon year, CL in high demand so cannot expect much too. just praying hard that things go smoothly for me n baby during the confinement month. Else 1 month not long but Chiam also.
Until one day i decide to wash up the container myself and realise the base already has those alot plastic flim tearing up. All along i mistake it for uneven oil coating......i even can tear the bits of plastic flim up and can sense the weird smell.
I was super angry with the maids! i asked them why they never realise the plastic coming out all along when washing it and they still use it to store hot soup for me to drink.
Not even a word of sorry from them. They just act blur. I can't fire them. Because they are hired by my sister In law and hubby to take care of the in-laws. Kept me worried that the plastic toxic will go to baby.
Now as my EDD nearing, they gave excuse to go home in MAY. Obvious reason rite?
It was because i ate a nasi lemak and a platter of fruits for my lunch and my sugar level was high when tested in that afternoon.
So nowaday, i dont't eat fruits before my gyn visit.
I ate ice-creams and sweet dessert AFTER the visit.
So now, my sugar level is good in every of the finger prick test! So dont't worry so much!
my gyn is very strict on my weight gain cos my previous GTT test indicate i boredline.
So now i cut down on rice and flour thingy. eat veg, meat, fruits mostly...
Went for my 32weeks check up this noon. Baby is now 1.8kg, gynae said is average size. But she said she is going for conference overseas during my EDD ... So hopefully baby can come out slightly earlier... What a luck... sigh...
Some time having maid is headache... Miniclaire, maybe you shld let your sis in law n hubby know n get a change...
just now when my hubby is fetching me from my mum house, a boy just dash out from the void deck while my hubby is driving into the car park... The boy stand in front of my hubby car, point finger at him laughing as if daring my hubby to run over him... Luckily my hubby stop in time... The maid is only standing a side giggling!
I told my hubby he shld catch the boy n meet his parents, so dangerous!
Anyway, my mother in law help booked a CL from Malaysia once I discovered I'm pregnant. She says not bad, have not't tired so dont't know. Most of the things my mother in law ask her what to get n got for me from Malaysia herself, never go thru the CL. She quoted 2.2k at first too, but mother in law very good at bargaining, told her it's my first child, not much work. Plus my hubby flies around quite often. Just take care of me n baby only. Then she accepted 2k. Paid 300 deposit.
