I am new to this forum. I am currently 30 weeks pregnant with an EDD on 4 May.
This is my second child and it is a boy. My first child is a daughter and she is going to be 10 years old in November.
So far I put on only about 7kg to 8kg.
My gynac did not tell me how heavy our son will weigh.
I am a little paraniod as I will be turning 37 years old in Nov so I am going to do a 3D scan on March 08.
The good news is the Oscar test and nuchal scan are both normal.
Has anyone done a 3D scan before?
Actually I also took quite long to decide to go for class because I once study nursing and thought it is not necessary but my sister In law and ex-colleague recommended me to attend Mrs Wong Boi Boi's class by Thomson Medical Center and I never regretted signing up as it is really practical esp if your hubby can go. The exercises being taught really help me as during the start of my 4th month, I experienced leaking of urine and was so upset by it but now this problem stop and it also helped me reduce leg cramps and even if I experience leg cramp, I will do the exercise being taught while my hubby massage me and when I went back sleep and wake up, the aftermath pain in the muscle will gone and I dont't feel much pain except aching which is normal as baby get bigger.
Hope you won't have leg cramps, as long as you eat well and avoid pre-long walking and sleep without blanket to cover your legs. =)
When is your due date? And what you brought from baby fair? Heehee
Saw the huggies diapers sold out during first day by afternoon. Scary!
I think not much worried if everything is normal. My aunt has her first kid at the age of 40 and 2nd one at 44/45 and she didn't go through any 12th wk or 20th wk scan as last time dont't have much facilities like now and baby born were all normal. Just got to trust the result and eat well.
The doc might not tell you the weight but I think ultrasound will show the result when doc printed it out for you as mine got show. And congrats! Mine is also boy, first child and my EDD is the same as you. =) But I think usually 2nd child born 1-2 wk earlier. And you weight gain is like mine so should be pretty good. =)
I bought Huggies trial pack from sweetest moment cos Huggies booth all sold out!! Then 2 single avent pump set, avent 3-in-1 sterilizer set, storage cup, graco stroller, stroller cushion, bib, 2 blankets, 4 pairs of puku mittens n booties, a hollow pillow, 4 pack of hangers. That's about all. Hehe..
Am waiting for taka baby fair.. Hopefully got some more cheap looks to buy..
I am waiting for Taka fair but so fair no news. But next month from 22nd-24th Mar got Baby Expo also so gonna go buy if need to.
Hi elyn, ppl told me can start buying from 2nd trimester onward as you got more energy to shop. Now at 3rd trimester, I feel tired easily to shop...
I'm also waiting for taka fair... Even applied the dbs taka card haha
Taka baby fair is from 6march-24march!!
There's mothercare sales at Vivo this weekend I think!
mothercare sales is 1-10 March level 3 harbour front center.
Actually I got one qns. How to breastfeed baby if we are gonna have massage for 10days? I mean the body will be damn oily ..
I saw it from the taka website. =) thanks Ping87.
Anyway, before go mothercare sale, do sign up for their free membership card online. Got discount entitlement and can help you accumulate the points. If you spend 300 bucks within 3 months will auto update to VIP membership. Just give them your hp no and NRIC. Just found out about this when I go to the mothercare branch as my sister In law want to get the VIP card.
Oh... I go classes, it is taught that should bath because it is mostly a clean wound cut esp if it is our first time giving birth. Confinement lady will usually prepare herb bath if you hired one during your confinement period. If washing hair, just wash and right after that blow dry so that it won't cause us those health problems that our mother always tell us. If not might risk wound infection. I also thought can't bath until I go classes and do read up. Old belief said dont't bath because last time is natural tear and people bath using unclean water that is not treated yet so high risk of wound infection. If not, if baby latch on, might cause other risk of infection due to baby poor immune system. =(
But after the massage we can't bath ... That's what the massage lady told me.

Oh dear... I dont know how sia. Later one say can bathe, another say cannot. sigh...
hi mummies, I just had an appointment, 28 weeks and 1.3 kg - very happy, because baby is not big. My first one was above average and gynae always said - eat less.... But now - no limitation I also got a mothercare flyer - baby fair from 1 to 10 of march. Anybody is going? It's actually quite far from my place, I think I'll go only for taka one....
ping87, when I gave a birth for the first one, gynae and nurse told me can bath on the second day after delivery (but mine was natural one, not sure about c-sec). I read that it's not recommended to pamp during the first few weeks, because baby may prefer bottle and refuse breast.
Congrats, fionagrier! honestly, 37 is really not late! I also know lady who gave a birth to her first child at 43! have a smooth pragnancy))) You are lucky, already have a gal 10 yo who will be able to help with a baby!
Hey cony!! Nice to hear that your baby is weighing 1.3kg at week 28!
I was worried my baby overweight when my gynea told me my baby was 1kg at week 26 but he says ok. So far he never ask me control diet too.
I'm planning to go take a look at the mothercare baby fair. Just take it as exercise. Hahahah.. Just walk! Lol!!!
The reason I ask about the bathing cos Chinese always says cannot bathe. And if I choose normal delivery, I doubt my parents and in laws will allow me to bathe. I told myself, cannot bathe its ok, I just need to on aircon! Lol!!!!
