me too, baby is now on my right side, back facing my left.. the movements now I felt is on my right and can see his hand/ leg poking my belly and I'll give a gentle push and he'll move away.. hubby still told me dont play with baby.. haha... as of this morning's check up, baby is getting near, head down and facing downwards.. just the waiting game for him to be engaged in another 2-3 weeks...
If baby isn't engaged yet and you need to deliver can you still do natural?
My baby also same direction. But sometimes he will push left n right at the same time or one hand n one leg at the same time... That one really too playfulOriginally Posted by miracle25;

Why should your baby have the first hair cut or full month hair cut?The first haircut that a baby has at first month is extremely important,but many parents forgot that as they cannot bear to part with their child’s hair.All newborns have a layer of “foetus fat” that is secreted from their skin, and it is mainly centralized on their heads which may lead to bacterium reproduction if not handled properly.Growth of hair requires protein, calcium and iron which a newborn lacks. Hence, a haircut is necessary for easy cleaning and maintenance.
for eyebrow, i find weird..
I find their reasoning very weird. Newborn got fetal fat must be have reason ... Cannot be produced for bacteria growth right? Some more we bathe baby everyday, why will have growth?
Any one got any idea regarding full month party, when to hold it for baby? Like I heard can only do it earlier, cannot do it later, and some says the date for girls and boy is diff. like boys must do on actual day or something?
Gracecwz- i find it weird also. but it is the traditional way for chinese to shave. my mother in law want to baby to shave batok, while my mum say shave a bit can . since my baby is boy we decide to shave all unless he is botak. hahaha. for eyebrow think will shave also.
maybe what they mean as bacteria growth is the dry scalps is it?? if got maybe shave all is better for baby also.
esoteric - for the baby shower what i know is boy can be early. girl can be later. anyway after discuss w/ my mother in law on the cake n buffet, i told her is it ok we pray on actual day n give some cakes to office. buffet n give relatives cake will held on weekend another day. she ok w/ it, cos i mention on wait baby too tired to travel in the morning n afternoon cant sleep well also if got buffet at home. so i will be order 2 batches of cakes on diff day. better for me also, cos can go wash my hair n doll up, dont need to be too rush. dont wanna let ppl see a oily, smelly hair mummy.
how often do we have to drink the coconut juice? everyday nearer to the EDD? or 1-2 times a week?

Yah, once a week. Even the fruit seller knows... Haha. Just ask them.
Btw, my Gynae say now better stop taking dha capsules.
Oh, so full month is 28days according to Chinese calendar right?
Yah , the full month how to count ahh.. 28 days or 30 days or 31 days later..
