Haa.. I trim my hair in June n went once for pre natal massage but Didnt sign package as dont think will be going town often anyway to use it.
i will probably be washing hair.. Think got some herbal leaves for us. I m leaving hair as shoulder length. Easier to tie n bun up.
heard yday got Robinson sale. We bought a new Britax car seat n deducted $50 as members!
How much did you pay for car seat ? I got 3 seats from my relative n colleague but I need to wash n buy the padding ..
My leg cramps started again. Can suddenly be in the car too!!
we bought it at about $315. We Didnt mind investing in good quality car seat as its our first child n this can see them through the next few years! Then no need headache! Ha..
Thanks for the reply. I'm trying not to wash hair for the 1st week. Hope can bear with it
Worthy Lady: Yup, will try to follow the rules as much as I can. Last pregnancy not quite follow, end up pain here n there after confinement. Maybe this the last chance to re-fine my health
It's quite cool when the baby moves and can see the "waves"! I'm starting to feel the weight on my lungs already. Especially when I'm flat on my back with legs propped up to reduce water retention.
I only have cramps but no swelling of fingers or joint pain. I'll go get the compression socks/ tights tomorrow. Hopefully it helps. Been stretching my calves on the escalator and it helps a little but still get slight cramps. Sigh.
Last stretch for us all! Hang in there ladies!! I think I'll miss having baby moving inside me. LOL.
ZPF: I'm having body ache, headache n feel my body not healthy as before pregnant. My sister In law having the same, we both think that we not resting well during confinement. Immediate after birth I drank 1 bottle mineral water cos too thirsty. I wash my hair really soon 2-3 days after giving birth. Soon after I feel well I walk around happy taking care of my 1st baby. My mom nag me but I'm thinking of the 'A mo style'. I end up water retention n can't loose weight.
Now I know, we r not 'a mo', the traditional Chinese confinement way had its benefit. Or it just our subconscious make we feel weak if we dont't follow the rules????
My sister In law having her 2nd last year n she really well rested n follow the rules especially dont't get wind n touch water. N most of all, drink tonic/herb. She regain her health back n her hand no more pain.
i definitely will taking this chance to regain my health. Rest well in bed n ask my mom to prepare tonic/herb water before go to delivery suite
Hi mummies, I just got back from d baby baby fair at expo..well its rather small scale as it's half d size of d hall..not alot of things if you ask me but if you want to stock up on diapers..cold storage there having rather good promo..alot of pple went to grab...otherwise you may consider another fair - young parents expo fair from 30aug to 1 sep..provided you have not't pop yet
Thanks chweewy for the update!! Was wondering n contemplating if I Shld go down tomorrow!
ZPF: My due date is 22nd Sept. Think many of you are earlier than me.
I also heard from ex-colleagues that they didn't do confinement properly and became less healthy after. So they made use of the birth of second child to "reset" and became much healthier.
I figured, it's only one month of our life in exchange for a lifetime of health. Why not?
