Doc says its normal coz the adbominal muscles is strectched. but i can't seem to get any relief from it. together with the back/hip pains, the combo can be painful until i cannot sleep. keep telling myself must tahan for baby!
err.. i also have not't washed anything. i dont't even know if i have everything ready. but i try not to get too stressed..cause no matter how prepared, sure miss out something.. hehe.
one thing i do regret is not getting stuff earlier. feel so heavy and tire easily now.. and there a few things I have not struck off from my list, or stuff i havent decided on for so many months.
My doc said the next milestone is 36 weeks ... counting down!
i read that if baby always lying or punching you in same position, you are likely to feel soreness at that spot. i also having problems getting comfortable when sleeping. every night when i lie down, even if it's on my side, i will have difficulty breathing, until after a while then it goes away.
did anyone buy sleep suits for baby? i have alot of bodysuits and 2 swaddleme swaddles, but no long sleeve/trousers/footed sleepsuits for baby. is it necessary? or will swaddleme blanket be sufficient? weather so hot...i wonder if baby will feel hot or not..
I have many preloved short sleeve for baby, size newborn and 3M is about the same. My mum said newborn just use cloth diaper as swaddle will do, my Myamar friend also do the same thing for her baby, and she never bought clothes for newborn baby. In our confinement preriod, baby will be also confined with us, I think baby will feel hot.
ahh ok good not to buy so many stuff also since they outgrow everything so fast!
My gynae is also going away on the week of my EDD. Why are gynaes always flying here and there?! Shdnt their focus be on their patients?! Sigh...have not't asked him who his replacement is yet. I hope his trip gets cancelled last min.
Jia you to all mummies!!!
hi... hmm well im ok with female obs as long as she recommends. im still thinking should i switch d doc now to someone she recommended? or i may deliver naturally early by her? my obs i think is on holidays
Hahaha I dont't blame gynaes for going on vacations - they need a break too.
But - I think they should have the decency and due diligence to inform you before-hand, before you signed the package or when their vacation is planned. Or at least pre-empt when he/she might be on vacation so as patients, we can decide if we would want to go with this doc. That is only fair.
I went to dr tc Chang website and the dates he are away are clearly stated on the website. That is good.
I mean - as working women - we do that too right.... We dont't unexpectedly go on vacation - leaving our teammates in a lurch...
Hi Xiangxiang Mama,
Ya I hope I can make it on that day for natural birth. Basically I got major baby stuffs from my siblings. All store in baby room esp baby wear have not't unpack to wash. I think my preparation only 70% ready.. the rest items like milk bottle, baby cream, toiletries etc have not't buy yet. Very soon have to dig out everything n jot down short of what.
This is my first baby, I wonder can manage it or not. No experience on taking care of baby before but everybody is the same I think. Just learn from experience haha... I hope can breast feed my baby if possible too. Pretty looking forward to meet my lil one n feeling nervous too. Kind of mixed feeling at times.

Do you use normal washing powder or specific baby washing powder ? Bcos somebody told me I must buy baby washing powder. I can't find it at supermarket near my place.

The clothes after wash got baby smell
otherwise, make sure washing machine will rinse thoroughly.

Btw, mum to be, how many pc of diaper prepared? What brand you choose for day and night?
My mum buy 4 pack for size s but only 1 pack 64's for newborn. She said NB last only for 2 week. But I think 64's only enough for 10 days
if yr baby is more than 3kg at birth, he/she can starts to use S, no need NB.
oh no have i done my baby a great disservice by washing all her stuff with normal detergent? haha i hope not coz i read that unless we change all our regular detergent, not much diff also coz baby will be in close contact with our clothes most of the time. i suppose it's up to individual mama's!
i bought some newborn size clothes..the rest are gifted from family n friends. i realise the newborn clothes are so tiny! if my baby comes out big wont be able to fit. lol. and i also have 4 packs of huggies newborn diapers which i now learnt are small cut.
if i have number two i now know to skip the newborn size everything!
have you guys sorted your baby names? my hubby and i are still undecided!
Hmm. I thought baby's stuff need to be washed with baby detergent cuz there could be some ingredients in the normal wshing powder that will not be suitable for baby skin. remember baby skin is very raw and thin layer of dermis so more sensitive - unlike adult skin which is made of more layers and hardened as we grow older. And baby clothes are the first contact with baby skin...
Just like milk bottles etc cannot be washed with mama lemon but with baby safe cleaners. And just like baby cannot use dove to bath but baby soap. And just like milk bottles need to be thoroughly sterilized - not like adults can just wash and leave to air dry then can use already.
Mums the word - hmm, if I were you. I will re-wash everything with baby detergent. Just to be safe . But that's just my personal opinion.
you r right about the bottles thing. but thats for consumption...if no sterilizer we would use hot water. ok i go ask my mum.. but she may be more old school than me and say didnt use special detergent on me too..hmmm..but today there's so much more chemicals than last time!
thanks littlej i go find out more, if need to i'll ask for hlp to rewash..'pun-chit' already!
Thanks to mums the world for the info about the diaper.
I shall wait till last visit to gynae then buy diaper base on baby weight. Just in case buy too small cut diaper in advance.
As for baby name, we will let fengshui master see my baby bazi then decide.
