Yiks: I ever did a google and it mentioned mummies are safe to travel on plane if the pregnancy weeks are not nearer to delivery date. Same as Sunbeams, I actually booked a 4D3N BKK trip before realizing I was pregnant. Luckily I managed to book a promotion SQ flight and so the flight duration will be bearable. I usually travel via budget but I think I will be aching all over if I am travelling on budget this time round. Will be travelling in end of April which is the beginning of my 2nd trimester. I hope ms will be gone by then, else it will be very tiring throughout the trip.
A mummy: 2 hours should be fine. But I have not't heard of anything about cosmic radiation. What's that about?
For the mummies who are planning for a short trip, unless you are confident about your health condition, do book a flight with minimal travel duration. It can be very uncomfortable to sit for like 4 hours on a plane, especially the air is pretty dry. carry a sweet or sour plum and plastic bag with you at all times ya.

Im thinking of a taiwan trip. Oops. I think im asking too much.
Yiks: How about you imagine travelling on a bus or train (with nothing to see outside the windows) for 5 hours, do you think you can take it? I doubt I can take it. :x
dear all mummies,
ya i also have that weird awful taste in the mouth. it's not tasteless, it's more like a lingering taste in the mouth after meals and i need to brush my teeth after eating every time to feel better. if not, it will make me more nauseous.
any mummies started to exercise? i've been thinking of swimming and yoga... but so far, due to ms i had been rather fearful of going. but i am taking walks in the evenings... really tiring to even walk 400m! i read it's good to exercise lightly 30min a day.
as for traveling, i had a friend who went to australia during her pregnancy. i think really depends on how well you are feeling and what doc advice too =) from what i know it is safe to travel up to a certain period... oh ya my sister-in-law even went with us to Europe last year when she was pregnant. about 18 hour flight
18 hour yikes!!! I can't even sit still in a car/cab for 30min... Not able to find yoga in the West.How I just wish CC brings in prenatal yoga once a month.
ya i also find it very awful to be traveling in bus/car/mrt now. but i think when the ms is over, we are gonna feel extremely good. my friends keep telling me that i will enjoy my 2nd trimester, provided my ms goes away totally soon... hehe.
I hope it does for you. I am not sure what they meant by MS totally gone. You mean like completely feel yourself but how can it possibly be. Felt my stomach touches my swelling breast(as though they are sagging) unless I sit up straight and that's impossible for me. This makes me breathless and I feel fat and my nausea is alright now. But, I still feel giddy,dizzy,weak and cramps...like low in blood sugar level.
What's yr opinion mummies...am I just overreacting?=(
you mean you heard its not safe to travel? Thought they usually say second trimester is safest to travel as body is just nice n not too big but yet stable already?
My hubby is ambitious! I thought of going Maldives for the babymoon but he is thinking of Milan. LOL. That's like 13hours direct flight? The radiation for normal travelling is fine. Actually even if you are flight crew, it doesn't affect much.
I wanna do pre-natal yoga too! Somewhere central as I stay in Boon Keng and dont't drive. Been having mostly bed rest as the traditional chinese medicine doctor says to take it easy for first trimester as I had a prior mc. So have not't been swimming also.
I really hope ms disappears totally!! I have been feeling more normal in the mornings the past two days. Even have mood to think about food and going out. Hopefully this will last and extend for the whole day!!
hope if any mummies here know of prenatal yoga or aqua aerobics can share with us =)
my ms now is unpredictable, sometimes in the morning i wake up i know it's gonna be a terrible day. somedays i get better throughout the day and i feel good at night so i do my house chores as much as i can in the night time, and play with my bunnies. last night, i actually had supper (macdonalds!) and went to bed quite full. this morning i woke up without the queasy nauseating feeling. and also i try to eat throughout the day and it makes me feel less nauseous. my colleagues still commented that i keep slimming down... it's not a compliment now since i am pregnant haha.
i'm also beginning to buy maternity dresses, it's actually very fun! i shop online at asos.com, their maternity collection is really very pretty and so far i have bought 3 pieces. if you are into online shopping too, then we can also discuss maternity fashion! =)
StellaC count me in for maternal fashion !
Sprees etc so we can save on shipping!!
I'm also looking at maternity clothes from ASOS! Ordered some dresses but not sure how their maternity fit will be. Recommended to buy in your pre-pregnancy size but I feel so fat now though I also lost weight due to ms!!! Any other websites to browse? I also need to look for maternity dinner dress. Cos my brother's wedding is in Sept and I'll be almost due then. Hahaha! As sister of the bride, cannot anyhow wear.
Gosh. Sometimes, it will suddenly hit me that I have a baby inside. Hahahha!!! Like now still so unreal.
Here will be better more colours and designs http://www.lightinthebox.com/c/weddi...y-dresses_2808
