Hello! I'm new here, just signed up. Oh yes, please start sourcing for your CL. I was so depressed initially but luckily managed to kinda secure one lady earlier this week after calling 9-10 of them. One CL told me, she received over 30 calls for the month of April but she can only accept 1 job. In fact, I'm looking for infant care, any recommendations anyone? Thanks!

I'm also one of the lucky ones coz my mum will be doing my confinement plus take care of the baby when I go back to work. She's super looking forward and all geared up to help me!
Oh these days when I keep still enough, sometimes I get a fluttering feeling in my lower tummy...the frequency is just like how I saw the baby move in my scan earlier this week. I think I'm starting to feel the baby...!
the shrap pain has gone for now n i guess its the uterus expanding. i too had the BH often. its not painful but it's so tight that makes me uncomfy.
n today, i think i just felt my baby moved.. but it felt like a jump more than a move tho... hehehe..
im gg in to see the doc this sat n i so cnt wait! it's a day after my bday n seeing my baby will be the best present i can ever get. am so looking forward to Sat.. =))
Any idea when do we start applying cream for stretch marks?
which brand do you buy? Cos after I preggy, I stop applying moisturizer on my whole body... Kekeke....
I started applying too, alternating between palmer's skin therapy oil and tummy butter about a month back too. I kind of dont't like the tummy butter coz it feels rather sticky. The oil is better. My sis also bought me the Avent indulgent body cream. I have not't tried it yet but it smells really nice.

Hi all mummies,
wonder if any mtb experience cramps from hip down to groin area? Been experiencing cramps which lead to pain if i tried to walk. Be it getting up from a sitting/climbing/squating position?
Just wonder if any mummy taken any pill giving by gynae, went to gynea yesterday, now alrd 13 weeks, he gave me these 3 new type of pill
- Prolacta DHA (for baby brain)
- Prenatal nutriens
This morning i took, the smell really killing me, cause me a bit gastric pain.
Last 2 mths i only taken folic acid which is the pill size much more smaller, i still can accept, but now.........arghhhhhhhhhhh, the gas i burping out all the pill's smell
i wonder if i can stop taking it .....pls advise
for my 1st pregnancy, i have the same prob as you so i only took folic and lotsa milk throughout the 10mths.
my gal is as healthy, seldom fall sick and started walking at 8mths, calling daddy at 11mths. So i guess it doesnt really make much difference. btw, our parents generation where got such medi/vitamins? hehe!
Hi all mummies,
My gynae give me
- Prolacta DHA
still have duphaston, so i just finish it.
for the pills i find the smell n size ok. maybe use to take vitamin c which i still continue with.
If really cant take the pill, maybe take more healthy food w/ all this nutrients.
Anyone can feel baby movement already? i feel it specially at nite when i lay down on my back. Hubby hear sound from the kick also.
i only take soya milk, or milo mix a bit of milk powder, cannot stand the smell of cow milk.
Yup, when i tell my mum i have to take 4 different of medi per day, she shocked, haha
The medicine some more not cover under the package, i paid 150+ for it.
From morning till now the gas still non stop burping out, now i try to eat fruits to cover the smell, yuckssssssssss
try choco/strawberry milk, youhurt, cheese! Try to avoid those drks with caffeine as that will affect e absorption of calcium in your body. So more of high calcium, less caffeine = Balanced. haha! That is what i been doing till my 2nd pregnancy now.
i only take folic tablet which cost only 10bucks. haha!
Tink only durian can cover the smell ...anyway good to eat durians at moderation for a more creamy complexion - baby.
Ya, i think i should start to drink chocolate milk, haha, later ask hubby buy durian.
i think the fish oil i still can take it (no smell), either the Calcium or Prenatal nutriens gt the smell, tomorrow i will take the calcium only, then day after i take the Prenatal, then know which medi cause me gastric pain n burping.
Btw, is Prenatal consider folic asid , or is different medi?
I'm now 16 weeks, and taking the same pills as you.. I first started taking at about 13 weeks and couldn't stand the smell of the Prenatal and Calcium tabs! Then i took is with flavoured water e.g. ribena, barley, honey etc. anything that can mask the taste.
I also had gastric problems, but i'm not sure if it's cos of the meds. I read somewhere that iron supplements (iron is in the prenatal tabs) can cos gastric problems. I didn't stop taking, but just took Gaviscon to alleviate the gastric pains....
Thanks for your info, i think is good idea to take the pill with ribena, i would try it tomorrow,
since you mentioned that the iron could cause gastric, then tomorrow i shall try the calcium pill first, if calcium pill didn't cause me gastric, then should be the iron pill problem.
