Hi mummies, anyone gt good confinement lady to intro??

Me too... But mine is numb on finger n toes
I have not't experienced water retention so far but I did most of the methods cause I get leg cramps more often now and it helped.Originally Posted by kline:815852
Try to keep your legs elevated while you r resting, not to cross legs, dont't sit or stand for too long, wear loose clothings & comfortable shoes. Continue to drink water, not enough fluid will actually cause water retention too, reduce salt intake.
hi Ladies, am new to this forum. my EDD is 25th Nov.
My baby's growth seems to be running one week behind. Im supposed to be 25 weeks, but the scan shows 24 weeks. Is this normal?
Anyone of you have had packed your bag for delivery? Well i dont know if I am kiasu .. but my hubby was asking me to pack mine by Sept! Anyway do any of you have a complete list to share?
Been awhile since I last came in,this thread is quiet.So how are mummies doing?
Just saw my doctor yesterday and docotor comment my baby gal is slighty big and heavy.25wks plus at 1kg.
And have any mummies book your admission?

After my 20 week scan, I was also told that my boy is on the big side too.... I dont know about now (I'm about 28 weeks now).. maybe will ask my gynae tml when i see him..
But i was told by my gynae to watch my diet as diet plays an impt part in the growth of the baby (the sugar we have in our diet)...
I havent booked my admission yet .. was thinking of going for the hospital tour ist .. i will be delivering at Thomson Medical Center... how about you?
I m considering between Thomson and glene... My new Gynae based at glene... My worry is cost will be high if complications happen.
At the start can't decide to deliver whether at Mt A or Thomson,cos saw a lot of negative remarks about Thomson...
Then hub make the decision,so I will delivering at Thomson.
Had book my admission with gynae as well...
Whens your EDD?

My EDD is on 16 Nov.. must we book our admission now? I have yet to do so... will check w my gynae ...
Hi all mummies~
Hope everyone is fine =)
A bit stressed as still cannot find a confinement lady..yea...I know..it's rather late...but I have been hoping to find a Cantonese one who could make those canton soup...anyone got info on that, please~
btw, when should we take watermelon to get rid of the 'toxic'? I have heard ppl said it should be around the last 2 months...
Hi cynlai,I didn't know we should take watermelon to get rid of toxic.
i only known of taking bird nest and coconut juice
Hi estya,I know mount A parking is a nightmare but Thomson is no better either.
Anyway about those negative remarks is heard that Thomson nurses are not that caring and helpful compare to mount A ,
and they charge every single thing they given to you.Not as in used by you.
And you got to really check your bill,as there is an incident of a friend being overcharge for her hospitalization stay.
yah i also heard that the Thomson nurses can be quite rough..
oh i also heard that we should take coconut juice to get rid of toxic.. just not sure how much and when to take too.. Maybe once a week, just 2 months before EDD?
Coconut juice can get rid of toxic?All along I thought was for baby weight gain...hehe
Btw have you prepare your baby things?
Theres still some things I dont't know which brand should I buy from...
Just for stroller till now I still can't decide???Lol
How about you.
Yes, i heard from my friends that drinking coconut juice can 'cleanse' the baby from the dirty things in the womb when he/she is delivered... in a way, it's like clearing toxic .. But you must also eat the coconut flesh too, else it may be too 'liang' for your body...
For gaining baby weight, must take durians! Especially for boys, they can afford the weight... =p
Is yours a boy or girl? Mine is a boy.. so i can indulge in durians now.. haha...
I have started buying baby things since end of july.. non stop till now.. keke... but smaller items .. Lots of large items, I am also still deciding which to get.. Same here, I have not get our stroller yet.. Gelobeano did quite a research and advised me that many will go for Maclaren, coz it's more value for money.. Peg Prego is plushier so maybe more comfy for the baby.. Bugaboo is more light weight.. Both Peg and Bug are slightly pricer than Mac, so depends on your needs.. I am looking at these 3 brands, the other brand i am also looking at is Joie, coz they have a traveller set, which include a mobile car seat... Price is very attractive too..
Have you consider which brand of body lotion to buy for baby yet? any recommendation? i only know for diaper cream, Desitine is the best...
Thanks for advice,now then I know,coconut juice is to cleanse.Is there other alternatives for baby weight gain apart from durians,cos I dont't eat durians.Lol.
I am expecting a gal...When's your EDD?
For stroller wise,I m looking at peg but I still feel its abit heavy.I dont't really like maclaren cos I feel it's more like for toddler more then newborn.Probably I could go look at the brand you recommend Bugaboo...
No,i m not buying any body lotion as i will be using powder more.Then for bottle sterilizer any recommendation?Do we actually need it?
Hi Claval and estya
Thanks for your sharing. I heard about the coconut juice can detox but some said it's a bit too "cooling" and the alternative is to take watermelon...dont know how true is it though.
I have chosen Mt.A for delivery coz it's recommended by my Gynae as between Thomson Medical Center.
have not't got much baby stuff yet..still not sure which brand should go for.......is it a good idea to get them from all those baby fairs? Heard the price will be more competitive?
i know that watermelon is cooling too, but dont know about the detox effect, I read from other threads that some mummies regretted not taking enough coconut such that their babies are too heaty at birth... So maybe better to take more than less? Anyways, I also heard that boys tend to be delivered earlier than edd, so maybe end up also wun have chance to take so many coconuts in the end.. Just my 2 cents..
as for baby fairs, only the good fairs are worth the trip. I went to a lousy expo fair in jul/aug and it was utterly disappointed. The next expo baby fair is likely to be in oct, but I wun count on it too since its so near our edd already..
