thank you so much!
I even encounter once, I was stand in front of the reserved seat in the mrt, this young skinny lady just sit down as I approach the seat. maybe I just look fat to her.
Hello mummies ! its been a while.... my morning sickness is getting better and my appetite is increasing slightly. im now 17 moving into 18 weeks soon.
i can feel baby moving sometimes, and if i can't sleep well and turn here and there on bed, i can also feel a bump at certain parts of the tummy. haa...
any one who has successfully gone through pre-natal pilates and can recommend ? i'm thinking of attending one, hopefully i can take it.
But honestly, even I touch my tummy infront of them, they just stared at me as though you did something offensive to them.
I always tell myself, thank goodness I'm abled now. So I let the disabled sit . Lol!! And am so scare to meet those pinoys! They basically just push and snatch seats from you even if you are preg.
Well, I give up sitting down many times.. If i really need it, I will just approach them.
let's start sharing our shopping list and the things that we should buy to prepare for the big day. I'm a FTM and am lost where to start shopping for baby stuff and the recommended brands. Any suggestion so i can build on my shopping list and the other EDD-May-Mummies can learn and have an idea?
Now into my 21st week. What symptoms/changes are you mummies experiencing at this point?
woah, you are now 21st week! last time i copied a list from the forum but no stated brands . Actually, it depends what are you comfy with.
i am now going into 18 weeks, not much drastic changes on symptoms...
So far I'm recvg some old stuffs from relatives. Which helps me save quite a lot.
I dont't intend to buy everything cos it's gonna be wasting a lot of money.
But essential stuffs like milk bottle, pump, baby cot, pram I prefer to buy.
I gotten one playpen, baby bath tub and baby changing cot.
I'm not planning to use that playpen as bed for baby to sleep. The play pen can't change the height.
Anyway, feb will hve one baby expo! Lets chiong there!
I would like to share this cos I really felt that people should have some respect for preg ladies.
I have a friend, she can just rant on twitter saying she sat on reserved seat cos she's having gastric pain. And she was hoping no one will scold her for taking the seat. Then she heard a lady making a remark. And she mention that she doesn't look preg to her. And even she is preg, she could have ask her for the seat. The best is she wrote, dont't f***ing be bitchy to her just cos you r f***ing preg. And she went on saying, if you need the seat, f***ing ask nicely.
IMO, nowadays only people been through pregnancy will understand the pain that we are going through. Upon seeing how my friend reacted, I just felt so ashamed. We are trying very hard everyday to protect ourselves and baby from getting hurt from the pack train and there, other ignorant people making such remarks just cos they want the seat becos of gastric upset.
Apparently, if you really have a super bad gastric pain that makes you can't stand, pls go hospital no making a big fuss over the seat issue.
I was totally speechless. Becos she has never encounter what is real gastric pain. (I have gastritis history due to excessive weight lost previously, not healthy but becos I wanna get in shape quick, so my meals was cut to minimal hence gastric was affected and once my meal time is over, my gastric will start to turn nasty. Troublesome much!)
I was hoping she gets preg one day and she will understand which is more suffering.
Anyway, all mummies, hang in there! 5 more months! Stay happy!
Nevertheless, I just dont't bother unless its a long journey.. Hahaha!
Each time an old people give me seat, I felt bad.. And I insist the old ppl to sit. And by doing this I hope the ppl sitting down and get the hint but noooooo!!! They stared some more.. Stupid!
Hi Ping87, the last baby expo was a let down. Not sure if i should wait till then. Yeah, i do prefer baby cot too, if it can convert to bed after a few years, then it should be worthwhile. As for bath tub, i heard from some mummies that Mount A will give us free bath tub upon discharge. Not sure if this "promo" is still valid.
Currently, i still look fat instead of preggy. I have difficulty choosing what to wear for festive parties and work.
I just went for my check up. Sadly baby's position doesn't allow me to see the gender.. Guess the wait has to continue..
Anyway, baby expo Issit crowded? And the price is cheaper by how much? If the difference isn't that much, I dont't see the point of going.
Lolx. I am 5 months pregnant and tummy look very obvious but pple either fall into deep sleep or playing hp. Until a lady who kept looking at me alight at her station then I can take her RESERVED seat. -.-". Recent expo baby fair was a BIG disappointment. Nothing much and it is those 'Blog shop' selling clothes etc similar to those I can find in Qoo. Only managed to get AVENT bottles but not sure if its cheaper. Luckily there is a Megatex & Popular sale at the same time if not it would have been a wasted trip travelling down from Jurong. The next baby fair in March 2013 I will check if its worth going or not. He he...
i ever encounter once, this gorl staring at me and my tummy. but also mv gove me seats. Lol.. I'm cool about it..
I'm actually comparing prices.. Cos I dont't end of the day, the price is like only cheaper by a bit and I waste my trip just to squeeze with ppl.
Hi mummies, I just had my 20 weeks scan. Expecting a baby gal Now can go shopping
