Can eat tom yam?
I understand that spicy food should be avoided. Pls skip it if possible for the growing of yr little one
oh shucks i;ve been craving for tons of spicy food and been indulging in all spicy food for the past week! =(
dont eat those Del Monte bananas, they r known to be very very cooling.
dont take any herbal stuff or anytg extra
For those pantang ones, other than not telling pple, dont do things like buy baby stuff etc, treat evtg as per normal
personally believe in eating in moderation =) cheers ~
oh also i read about Not to use Retin-A products during pregnancy as they may cause birth defects. Oral is the one that can be fatal but to be safe, keep of Retin-A topical treatments too as well as Tretinoin.
Agree with xiaodaisy. I ate pretty much everything, including cold drinks, fruits and so forth
I believe moderation is most important.
I drink barley, watermelon juice, eat durian, drink tom yam, eat crab, etc. But I avoid anything cold. So my juices/yogurt must be room temperature. And I only consume those occasionally. I still try to balance my diet everyday.
Good to hear that you do not need to avoid anything. Sadly, I lost my baby at 8 wk and one of the things to point to this miscarriage is my intake of barley water and squatting to do housework, which I found out causally after are NO NO. It really causes me so much sadness and I sincerely just hope that my little advice can help those who in need only.
Take good care...
My dotter came out perfectly healthy...no jundice no nothing... So, eat in moderation shud be fine.. Cheers
I believe in eating in moderation.. In fact I drank cold drinks n ate spicy food all the time (hopefully the 'coldness' and 'hotness' neutralizes? )
In fact I wasn't aware in the first 8 weeks n was out clubbing n drinking a number of times... So shocked to find out I'm pregnant! Still go clubbing a bit but totally stopped drinking already since...
We are same - found out that I was pregnant and confirmed by gynae when it was already 8 weeks. So did lots of things (e.g. eat what 'do-not' and do what 'should-not') and everything turns out well.
I am a strong believer that if you want to be 'pantang' then anything that coincide with the bad happening, you will blame it on 'I-should-not-do-this or I-should-not-done-this' etc. Best is dont believe too much in those old-wives' tales, when you dont't know and 'step' onto these taboos, you will not panic or be worried.
I ate del monte bananas, coffee (cut down the intake tho) and ice-cream, curries, drink a glass of scotch(+ lemonade) nightly...
My baby is fine, no jaudice and no major problems.
Some of you might wonder'you are young so you dont't care'. Nope, I am actually past my mid-thirties when I conceived my baby and I am also a first-time mom.
dont't stress yourself over this stuff and have a happy pregnancy.

I believe I conceived when I was at an oveaseas trip. One week after I got back to SG, I found out I was 4 weeks preggie.
Ignorance sometimes is a blessing. I walked a lot during the trip, climbed up and down and carried heavy stuff (mainly shopping bags ), ate all icy drinks and desserts and spicy food. I smoked even more during the trip. Of course, I stopped smoking once I was tested positive.
I believe there are still "logical" things that pregnant women shouldn't do. Some pungtung old tales do make sense; while some others are just ridiculous. To each of her own.
Agreed to all those who dont believe in pantangs. My first pregnancy i was sooo pantang. Hubby n my family n my in laws too. Cannot eat this, cannot eat that, cannot do this, cannot do that. End up i miscarriage at 5 weeks. So this time all of us dont bother. Even hubby wont comment on anything that i wanna eat or do. I even took the rides at USS. Haha. And ate spicy food n cold drinks. Even my GP told me to eat. Just eat anythinh i want as long as i can eat n not vomiting. She said to take alot of fruits. N my mum asked "all fruits can?" She said can. My mum asked"even durian can?" she said go ahead. There's no science that says you cant. I take all fruits except pineapple. The last time wen i miscarriage. Hubby ask the gynae what is the cause of m/c. N she said nothing. Its just that your womb n body not ready for the baby. Then hubby asked isit becoz of riding om bike? Then the gynae ans "if it is THAT easy to get rid of a baby, then y those ppl who dont want baby, go for abortion? They could have just ride motorbike or eat pineapple or do squats to get rid of the baby what." To think back, what she say is true.. Hmm.. Thats y for my current pregnancy, my parenz n in laws all wont say anything . Oh yar, im now 10weeks pregnant n still going.
Pregnancy is a happy journey, so enjoy yourself wenever you can(if you r not throwing up) hehe.
Everyday i kena nag by my collegues(all age 50+), cannot eat this, cannot eat that, this no good, that no good. Haiyoo! Sian ar!! Sick n tired already. So enjoy yr pregnancy. N have a safe delivery all! ;D
I need some advice on this fllwing urgently...thks!
today is my 14th days after D&C, but because hubby tried to hug but ended up compressing me when i lay on bed 2 days ago, i start to bleed lightly yesterday, and a lot more today.
do you have any experience with bleeding so many days after D&C? shld i have any cause of concern?
I dont't think the bleeding has anything to do with your hubby hugging you.. After my d&c, i bled and spotted all the way till my first menses came 5 wks later.. I went back to my gynae twice to check but everything was ok.. Maybe if you're uncomfortable about it, why dont't you go and see your gynae just to make sure?
dont't worry k, hope you'll be ok soon!
bleeding for d&c by right shld get lighter and last only around 1 wk?
My spotting never really clear when I was til 12 days. But cos of hubby, these 2 days bleeding is similar to what I experience the first day after d&c...fresh blood discharge. I'm monitoring my condition as my Kandang Kerbau Hospital gynae can only see me by appt. if any urgent case I need to visit their 24hrs emergency. Kandang Kerbau Hospital's system is very different. Abit worried...
Ya by right supposed to fade off and stop by about 2 wks.. But sometimes some pple are different.. Best is to get it checked.. Have you had any follow up with your gynae since d&c? I think you shld just go ahead and make an appt.. Tell them it's urgent and try to give you earlier slot.. In the meantime, i suggest you might wanna stop taking herbal stuff as some of them promote bleeding..
2 wks after d&c and I have not seen any doctor or gynae. Is this arrangement normal? The appt was scheduled 5 wks after d&c... Maybe I shld not wait?
Any idea what herbal stuff cos bleeding? Im taking a lot of food and tonic daily and they include dom, HuiJi wasit tonic, herbal soups from confinement ttingkat...
ive been trying to improve my health as I feel sad that maybe my bad woman health does not allow me to carry on the pregnancy..,
My gynae scheduled for me to see him a wk after d&c to check that the uterus is clear, after which an appt was made for 5 wks later.. Since you've not had a check since d&c, maybe you wanna go check if you think your bleeding and spotting is persistent, just for peace of mind.. I'm not sure which herbs promote bleeding but my mum gave me chicken essence with cordyceps daily after my d&c and i wondered if that could have contributed to it..
I know it's not easy, but try not to think too much.. Sometimes there are no straightforward answers to what we're going through.. We have to stay positive.. I just tell myself my baby has gone to heaven to get stronger.. It's been 2 mths for me.. I just eat well, rest well, exercise moderately and keep positive.. My health has been pretty good so far.. I hope you recover real soon too k
i've managed to reschedule to appt to early next wk. thanks for sharing me the details so i'm not so lost...
i heard that cordyceps may promote blood thinning, maybe that makes you bleed? why dont't you take COE in original favor now? i'm consuming original favor since i'm unsure which herbals are safe for confinement.
i've gained so much weight, esp my tummy... it's so round now that my hub comments that i look so pregnant. i just put 'good food' into my body and simply dont't care as my health is my top priority now. i can lost weight after the confinement.
yes, i know there's no straight fwd answers to what we experience...i hope to get strong emotionally too. my fetal was with me for 2 mths too before it was taken away. my excitement and joy nosedive to seabed when all those things happen weeks back. I am trying to learn to be a happy person once again and back to reality soon. I'm not used to be bedridden, initially trying to save it and now rest due to d&c. everyday past by so slowly with only tv, food, more food and more bedrest for past 1 month. i must also get back on my feet soon too. .... you take good care meanwhile too.
