ZPF: I also have not't bought baby bottles, sterilizer, baby things like towels/ face cloth/ clothes etc!! Waiting for my hubby to return from his week long stag party trip in BKK before buying. He will go Platinum Mall to get some and we'll top up.
Eeks! Even the hospital bag I also have not't settle.
Has anyone started washing the baby's clothes? How early can we start?
Hi everyone! I'm new here . Pregnant with no. 2 edd 16 Sep. My first girl is 6yrs old already. My first pregnancy was smoothsailing and hardly any complains, maybe because I was younger at 27 yrs old. Now at 33, feel like not so energetic, bodyaches, and my worse grouse for now is pregnancy incontinence! Anybody else experience the same thing?
I also tempted to wash the baby cloth but my husband stop me if wash now too early I might wash for 2nd time. So i plan to wash in mid Aug.
I already pack hospital bag for just in case. Having GDM n they keep on eye on baby weight, they said GDM very high possibility to deliver by weeks 37 as they dont't want baby to be too large.
Have you mummies bought tummy binder for after delivery? Any recommendation?
Hi mummies, what to pack inside the hospital bag?
Kcws - I also had GDM just dectected at almost week 30. Abit late right? Hope not much damage done. FTM so very worried.
Just want to know if we can eat food like pizza? Or like other than brown rice.. Can eat others? Cereal what is good for bkfast? I m so bored of whole meal bread
dont't worry, maybe you just get GDM recently. Now just need to monitor the carbohydrate intake will do. Did you buy glucose monitor machine? Doc advise me to test 2 days a week. I can email you the chat if you want.
For breakfast, you can eat 2pakage of whole meal/wheat cracker or 1 small bowl of cornflake + 1 cup low fat milk/ reduce sugar soy milk. They recommend Julie wheat/ Jacob hi-cal/ iron/ fiber cracker or plan cereal. Some time I toast the wholemeal bread n make a sandwich (veg+cheese) Ya, agree that the diet plan very boring Just play around with the food . But its worth when the doc n dietician say the result good n ask me to keep it on
I found Eco Brown's brown rice is nice. Other than that you can eat bee Hun/kuay tiaw soup. I think spaghetti /pizza is fine but dont't eat too much. If me I will test the glucose level before n after the food. If 2hrs result fall btwn 5.5 - 7 than is fine. So you will know what food you can take n which cannot.
Also a short walk 15-20min after food is also important as the body will digest the carbohydrate more efficiently. So I always force myself to walk around after eat.
Hope this will help. Cheers
Thanks kcws for your sharing!!
appreciate it. Have also pm you.
Apparently there r different grades of whole meal bread! Like 50% or 80%! N bread no matter what contains flour which is carbo..
Did any mummies also watch "One every minute UK" on cable tv? It's pretty interesting to see how different women respond in labour.
StellaC - which channel on tv? See if I have that channel! Ha..
I think I m feeling the Braxton hicks strongly n it's painful. Split second kind of thing?
i really think it is n to think that it will be like 1000 times worst during actual labour scares me!!
i need those pain relief methods! Ha
Btw! Has anyone bought the Huggies from expo?
stocking up? Didnt managed to go today nor yday
maybe if worth to go.. Will go tomorrow after church! dont know lei.. Hmm
kcws, may I know any high protein foods suitable for GDM? My result at high end, so my doctor said she won't asked me to do the monitoring at home, but to cut down sugar intake.. And no sweet drinks anymore.. My baby's weight is at low side, need to do another growth scan in two weeks time..
StellaC, are you going to bring nipple cream and breast pump? Is it necessary?
Yanting - you mean your sugar level at high end? Do you know the level/ number or something? High in proteins ... Hmm me have been eating more n more veg! Lean meat also good source of protein. Maybe kcws can add on.
If you have high sugar level but baby weight on the low side? That's odd.. Thought usually it goes together..
anyway, glad you r spared the agony of monitoring ... Can be difficult n abit stressful.
