I believe the swapping of gender belongs to those pregnant ladies who does not know the gender of the baby yet. Somehow, I find it quite funny for some pantang matters. I just have to make sure that apart from sleeping and resting, no 'doing' dangerous stuffs on my bed. The rest is up to individual to believe.
But I know for the 1st 3 months matter, this one American also follow. So maybe international?
I heard that the critical period is from week 11 going to week 12, is it true?
My another friend told me cannot change bedsheets. I was like WTH? I have been changing all these while and I never heard anything about this. The only purpose I know why to avoid changing bedsheet is because the mattress is too heavy.
Pantang matter only .. : dont't go to funeral, no nailing,no paint,no moving of furniture.
Other then that its okie...
Actually no specific critcal period in pregnancy... the whole pregnancy is fragile. I dont't believe in the 1st 3 mths no announcment.
Well.. some people can miscarriage at month 9.
Be positive & happy .. stop worrying about all those patang matter.. Everything will be fine..
Talking about this pantang matters, to me, am not really that pantang. As long as I know no 'dangerous stuffs' on my bed will do. Others, I will not want to care that much. But friends always tell me this cannot that cannot, sometimes I also will paranoid and start thinking whether it's wrong to do this.
oh, regarding the first 3 months thing... can't tell in first trimester? so when did you let your superior know about your pregnancy so that the company can plan for all the handing over and to get relief staff to cover you during your maternity leave?
For me, I just let them know when I knew it and confirmation from doctor.
Is "packing" of the bedroom considered a taboo? I have this habit of clearing out stash (clothes/skincare/etc) every few months. Tidy up all the stuff in the cabinet/drawers. I read that it's no good to shift furniture. But I'm merely planning to pack it up.
My inlaws are quite pung tung so I'm trying to make peace as much as possible
Oh it's not good to shift furnitures?
I need to clear one of my rooms for my maid. Means when hubby is cleaning up I cant be in the house?
I think its okay to shift as long as you're not the one who do it. Some of these pantang is actually to scare you so you dont't do those dangerous act yourself.
There's something under my bed which I've been wanting to dig out but my mother in law already instructed dont't I (or my hubby) ever think about it (haha not in a mean way). My hubby discretely told me just days ago that if I really need the stuff I can just stay outside the bedroom and he will close door and take for me. But I told him it's ok. Just pung tung for few months and I can actually just buy the item brand new. =)
