Hi sbc. I have pm-Ed you the gynae contact and details.
This is a discussion on EDD Oct 2013 within the Year 2013 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Yes i think asking is fine, i've seen a few times. of course be polite and say please.. coz noone ...
Yes i think asking is fine, i've seen a few times. of course be polite and say please.. coz noone owes us the seat but more of safety for baby.. another method is approach the smrt 'wardens'who jaga the platform. they will scream and wave their batons for ppl to give way to you!
Hi sbc. I have pm-Ed you the gynae contact and details.
Me also stopped seeing traditional chinese medicine when I bfp. My gynae then said not necessary (he said ok to traditional chinese medicine whilst trying to concieve-ing though). Anyway my hubby never supported traditional chinese medicine as he finds it dubious that one is taking powder with no exact ingredients. So hubby said no to traditional chinese medicine after bfp...
I am thinking of seeing my traditional chinese medicine soon and perhaps give her something to thank her for helping. Just a small gesture and appreciation of thanks.
Oh oh... I realized the answer to sleeping issues is exercise!
I went for a 20min swim yesterday and I slept like a baby last night... And woke up feeling super refreshed and awake (it was the stupid traffic jams that spoilt my morning).
erh, gals, i make a wrong decision, i took a cab to office today, dont't want to squeeze Mrt. In the end, the cab keep overtaking and step hard on brakes and accelerator.
Once i reach office I pour out....... what a morning. i now sitting in office looking blur and tired...hope you gals have a better day than me.
I get the same problems with Mrt too. That time was in train that was stuck at station and in between station for 20 min. Very tired but still paiseh to ask the two ladies in front of me playing candy crush. Sometimes I wish pregnant ladies were given as special ez link card so we can wave at people to give up seat
You also take train at Raffles? Hehehz.. Same for me too. I too take train to Marina and wait in it to you-turn back to raffles to travel north. There is no point of rubbing your tummy. No matter what these ppl will always act blur n pretend to see us n straight away sleep.
Haizzz.. I just hope KARMA does not give them what they do to us!! Every women has to go thru the phase of motherhood rite?
I also take train to marina n you turn back to NorthOriginally Posted by PrincessIrsh:779957
Any remedy/exercise for us??
Hi june83, yes! i also dont understand why they obviously know and refuse to give way. I always try to give seats to needy ppl before preggie cos i believe what goes round will come back. Next time i will also grow old, i will need help too..
Raffles place, cityhall & t.pagar is a killer. I take bus home and the bus is always FULL n crowded. So what I do is, I will use at least one hand to protect my tummy. anyone push back or squeeze me, i will push n block the fellow! stop him or her from touching my tummy.
I ever saw a preggie got frustrated, she just tell the guys off " stop pushing my tummy, im pregnant. Thank you" then everyone look and really back off a little.
If ppl get on my nerve, i will just say it out too. Always tell ourselves, we are the only one who will protect our little one. No stranger is responsible for our safety. As long as we not hurting anyone, we do what's right !
PrinceIrsh, you may want to consider signing up for this swimming course at Kandang Kerbau Hospital. my friend went and said it was good! the swimming pool is indoor and has heater. So mummies wont feel cold. Instructor will correct you if you do wrong also.
Hey princess - I'm in my second trim so gynae has given me the go ahead to swim, pre natal Pilates and yoga and slow walk. No jogging, or heavy exercises for me though.
And it is gentle swim not competitive swim.
I wasn't allowed to exercise in first trim so I relied on relaxing music to get me to zzz. But I did do some walking like erm walking my dog?!?

Hi faithmummy - if that's the advice from your gynae then better follow. Maybe your next visit you can ask your doc if can do mild stuff like swimming, pre natal yoga, pre natal Pilates, slow walking. Maybe he misinterpreted your "exercise" as the heavy duty stuff?!? My gynae said I can do the above mentioned cuz I asked specifically...
I've read mummies are encouraged to do some form of mild exercise during trim 2 and 3. Yoga helps in the breathing, Pilates helps in the kegel and muscle and back pains, swimming helps to expand / loosen hip joints. And exercise in general will help to alleviate water retention, cramps and swollen ankles. But of course - all subjected to doc's approval.
Yup I wore clothes that bring out the bump but ppl still might think I am just fat. Hahaha. Hmm my bosses also think my bump is not very obvious. actually Ytd I was buying fruits at the fruits stall and one of the PRC just pushed me from my back. Luckily it was not a big push but I just told her, can she dont't push ppl?? Then she apologized. I'm not targeting any PRCs but just happened that this is the case. Even when I was on train today and it was already very crowded and a PRC just pushed in even though my boss told her that I was pregnant, and she just literally ignored. Haha... This is what happened.Originally Posted by huiqin83:779787
I think bump not too obvious also can't say much things. Just try our luck to ask for seats then...
For the first trimester I took cabs to work... And of cos to beat the crowd, it is so much better. I can have better breathe of air, and I dont't feel faint. But it's better to let the cab drivers know that you are pregnant as some drivers just drive very quickly. So I learnt from a very nice cab driver that we shld tell them that we are pregnant. Then they will drive steadily, and even there's hump, they will slow down for us. But rem to wear the seat belt even if you feel uncomfortable at your tummy...
ok i read more closely attire is swimming costume. haha.
