talking about the butt.. omg? my hips get so much wider too.. i'm still having my #1.. most likely gonna stop at #2.. hopefully can stop factory by next yr.. hee!~
For me, my family have big/curvy butts ..so when preg, it's really become OH MY BUTT -.-'l| after my 1st pregnancy, somehow managed to slim down back to my old jeans size thou stil about squeeze..
I heard from moms who had few kids,it's easier to slim down after each pregnancy than wait til close factory then slim down at 1 go.. N it's easier to slim down within 1yr from you gave birth, ESP when you r breastfeeding n looking after your baby yourself.. It's not so healthy to get pregnant when your body is stil so fat(as in unhealthy fats n toxins inside), imagine being so unhealthy n pregnant, it's gonna be so hard on you n your baby..
Plus, I seriously think as a woman's nature, we will wanna look better no matter when we 1 our ne baby, no matter at what age n what stage of life,women want to look n feel pretty haha it's all about our self confidence.. ^^
ya, all of us mus stay n maintain as pretty mamas!! cannot become auntie
Ya,my sisters already calling me auntie cuz they said im a mom of 2 soon.. But I'm only 25 ,ESP my face still look so young,alot ppl dont believe this is my 2nd pregnancy already.. They said it's only change in status calling,N now I got a soccer ball hidden under my shirt,doesn't mean I have to be auntie lol.. N it really still feels weird when ppl at hospitals n clinics address you by "Madam XXX" , if it's "Mrs XXX" I still feel ok.. Madam sounds so old to me haha..
No more #3 n #4.. I cannot imagine the pain again if I got to tag 2kids n a soccer ball on me haha.. 2 is just nice,hubby grab 1,I pull 1,still got hand hold each other haha.. $$-wise also can be more easy when it's only 2kids.. Pregnant n giving birth is just the starters of $$ flown away, next 20yrs investments is the long term deep sea haha..
very true, incurred alot of $$.. is a long term investment n i actually dont expect anything in return cos the living standards/ expenses in sg is really too high..
Nowadays ppl dont't talk about returns anymore..unlike the old ppl always say raise a few more,old got ppl take care of them..my mom will say as long as they can feed themselves dont't need we feed them still when we r old, that is already very pleasing haha.. Cannot compare anymore,look at the stuff kids learn nowadays I already feel it's so much smarter than our days,of cuz it will means more $$,but if you dont let them learn, they will become lose out in their future world...sigh not easy being parents nowadays..
I did not receive any valentine's day pressie too cuz hubby say he broke. haha! i understand. Next time . Its okay as i did not buy him any pressies too.
same here.. hubby n i agree not to spend on presents on special occasions like birthdays or anniversary, instead, we'll bank a certain amt into our joint acc instead.. well, no more flowers n gifts but i dont mind at all..
before my our 1st baby,The only thing me n my hubby willing to spend on are food only n online games abit.. Since baby born,we only go have slightly more high end meal once/twice a month or something,e rest all spend on our precious kids.. Seems like all parents r the same from the day they know they are going to be one.. Unspoken sacrifices for their very own children..
i think is parents natural instinct.. like now i hardly buy anything for myself.. when i clear the credit card bills r all baby stuffs.. hee!
Ya,back then I only knew I was pregnant at 16weeks,was so anxious n worried once I knew I got a baby inside n was still doing all that stuff ppl say pregnant ladies cannot do.. Never stop worry til he was born so healthy n strong.. Now 2nd pregnancy,I'm worrying n panicking over everything again till the day she is born in my arms healthy.. Then start worry about other stuffs for them again lol..
We mummies often worry too much. But we cannot help it.
I'm having rashes too. Glad to know I'm not alone! Can normal moisturizer be used during preg? I can just buy off the counter at pharmacy or do I need to go to shops especially selling things for mums and babies?
Thanks, mummies! I have a bottle of Johnson's baby moisturiser so I use that first then rub on Stretch mark cream on tummy. Now have to use the moisturiser all over my limbs and my tummy coz rashes are appearing everywhere.
i dont feel stretch mark cream have any much diff from moisturizers haha.. apart from the cocoa butter makes my skin all oily n sticky which makes me feel more itchy haha.. i feel its just important to keep your skin moisturized during pregnancy to prevent those stretch marks rite?if really appear stretch marks,those stretch marks cream also cant help much to reduce it off..
i still got 1 line of stretch mark from my 1st pregnancy that did not reduced off untill 1yr back when i massage n use normal moisturizer on it.. was using stretch mark cream on that line since pregnancy,got worse after i gave birth yet no reduce nor lighten zzz..
