Hmm.. how about hankerchief?
This is a discussion on EDD September 2013 Mummies within the Year 2013 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; I tried wearing the N95 mask but it's making breathing quite difficult......
I tried wearing the N95 mask but it's making breathing quite difficult...
Hmm.. how about hankerchief?
Handkerchief no use. I read that even those square/clinic mask is not good to filter off the haze particles. .only n95 mask is good...
I'm using the surgical 3-ply mask at home in the aircon! The other masks were sold out and since I'm not outdoors, figured it should be enough.
I'm having a scratchy throat already from yesterday and last night!! Sigh. Hope I dont't fall sick.
PSI went up to 290!! All mummies take care!
Highest in history...mummies pls drink more water n provide yourself!
I have started wearing 3-ply facemask under the haze. I believe in terms of air ventilation, it is easier to breath than wearing N95.
It did stopped my from breathing the burnt smell.
n95 more effective coz it stops the tiny particles.. uncomfy but its the microparticles that we need to not breathe in, which the 3 ply mask wont stop.
stay hydrated too!
Hi Mummies, I experienced abdominal cramps twice in a week. Currently, I am in my 28 weeks. The cramps lasted for about 5 mins. Does any mummies encounter same situation as me?
Any mummies bought air purifier? Almost all dept stores sold out! Scary!
chweewy: that's what I heard too! Actually, I have been thinking of getting one before the haze invasion, but to get it now, the price will sure increase. I am thinking to get it after the haze dies off, hoping there will be promotions due to surplus in the air purifier stocks.
Anyway, I saw air purifier from Sharp Plasmacluster FU-z31e selling at $219 on deal.com.sg, if any mummy is keen.
ZPF, your cramping cld just be Braxton Hicks.. Itz your body's way of signalling that everything is working well.. I find that doing deep breathing helps me in making the Braxton Hicks pass faster..
ZPF, nutrition is very important during pregnancy. For you and your baby. The health and well-being of the baby is determined more or less by the primal period which is from conception to baby's first year of life. Health can also affect how we give birth too. Been through it before. You can read this article for reference. 6 reasons for preconception health and preconception cleansing | ChildBirth Odyssey
I managed to get my hands on an air purifier today! At Courts Causeway Point. They had an afternoon delivery of only 10 sets and I managed to reserve one. I paid $599. Damn ex
If really necessary, order at Amazon and do 2-4days global delivery. Might be cheaper than what I paid for and better brands.
Haze is really bad! Please take good care of yourselves and baby. May all be safe and well. Stay indoors as much as possible.
I have tightening.Worries me and back pain. How do i know i'm not going to go into premature labor.
Just so hard.
Hi A mummy, you could b experiencing braxton hicks...hope I spell correctly. you can google about it
Me also felt d same. But when I asked my gynae last week, she said it's normal as long no bleeding, spotting or the tightening or contraction not regular or consistent.. more back pain, aches r normal as our lil one is growing even faster than tri 1 n 2. But if it really worries you, go n see your gynae..

Hey mummies! Advisory note from MOH:
dont't wear N95 masks for longer than 15 min each time when in second and third trimester.
been to see gynae on one of the worst hazy days (21 June) and he told me no N95 masks for pregnant coz there wont be enough oxygen for baby. then i asked him how about surgical masks? he says that one no use coz the particles can still enter. best is refrain from gg out.
Hi mummies, it's raining!! Thank God!
I slipped n fell yday coz I missed a step fell on my side I think.
Anyone knows if it's serious? My gyane is not around this week...
i did feel bump a bit pain but after that I felt baby move a bit
not sure if it's my imagination but baby seems to move lesser today.
Maybe he's angry? Ha...
anyone had similar exp n everything ok?
