As for tonics I just bring my mother in law along with mi then she choose I pay...cos diff people diff pattern mah....I also feel paishe if she pay for mi cos after buying is quite expensive ..but mother in law everytime go market she will help mi buy black chicken(her own pocket) cos we staying together...
I tink your mother in law dont mean to like want your baby dont want you...sweetheart dont tink so much ..... Though I tink is
normal for them to love our baby more than they love us....
My mum told me that no matter how close a child is to his/her caretaker, eventually the child will be closer and wants to go home to the parents. I have witnessed this happening to my young cousins so dont't worry, your baby will want you.
My mother in law called my hubby this morning to ask about me, how big is the baby and told him to tell me to dont eat this and that. So ok , less upset already. I guess I was really emo cos sometimes they really biased. But now, I let go already.
good for you charline~
possessive but not over pamper . hehe
I pantang.... Even my ob told me not to tell anyone during 1st trimester cos 1 out of 5 pregnancies will go thru miscarriage.
ya thats about 20% i also heard somewhere~
Yeah that is what exactly my ob said....I just want to be safe than soree, so I told my Hubby not to tell anyone incldg our parents till I m into my second trimester. dont get me wrong here, both my Hubby n me came from a close knitted family, but as this is our first baby, just dont't want to to take the chance.
Haha I know my mum too well. She will tell my aunties n tell them not to tell anyone and they will tell others n tell them not to tell anyone. Kakaka
haha i guess thats always been the case ~
Only informed immediate family members. A significant percentage of pregnancies dont't make it through 12 weeks, so i took that period to take care plus see if the baby is meant to be. No point announcing yet and have a big possibility of disappointment later. To hubby and I, it was about the statistics instead of any superstition.
All the best to preggie mums!
Personally: it's a happy news so why not share it with your loved ones...? I told my partner straight after 2 HPTs, while he was playing golf (and he won that round!) Then my family and my closest gfs. We are all very excited!
There are some people who are unable to handle the pressure of the entire world asking them about the new baby and the rest of the plans etc.
And i suspect, that might sadly lead to unnecessary stress to the Mummy-2-b... which domino effect to, what some "pantang" people believe, losing the baby...
Most importantly, we new-mummies have to think positive and let nature take its course. Smile and be healthy for both you and junior!
for me i only share with close friends and family too..
those who guess i did not say i am or i am not..
just give them a smile..
hehe, we told my parents, sister and bro-in law at 5 weeks when we first discovered. just told my father in law after we went for 1st prenatal appt yesterday at 8 weeks and another several close friends over the weekend. in between, i shared the happy news at this forum, and left it to my mum to decide which relative she wanted to tell, but i dont think she told many, if at all. have not told my bosses and colleagues yet, probably after my babymoon in a few weeks' time!
dear husband and I are not too bothered by superstitions nor statistics. Our philosophy is that every child is God's gift, so we celebrate. God gives and God takes away, so if He does take away, we trust that it must be for a very good reason.
