hi, im entering my last semester of my pregnancy. im quite worried because i have this big frame to hang in the living room. my hubby need to drill the wall for it...my colleagues said that it is not good to do it during my pregnancy...i think she said like something will happen to the baby. but some said can drill as long as im not in the house...please help me..im scared now but i badly wanted to hang the beautiful frame i have which had been stock in the store room for sometime already.
thank you in advance for your comments
If you're not pantang, then go ahead drill it but ask your dear husband to do it. Prob stay outdoor coz can be quite dusty or noisy.
If you're pantang, then wait until baby is out, but then again, when baby is out, dont think you wanna disturb his/her sleep Unless you bring the baby out.
My conclusion, ask dear husband to drill when you're out.
thank you so much yakii for the info...i think we just go with it since he will be doing it while im here at the office
Drilling can be done, as long as you not around to see or hear it, will be good. Thats what my dad tells me.
i think most impt dont do it in your bedroom and lik what others said, you dont be present when your hubby is doing the drilling... but if you're quite pantang, then wait after you give birth..
Yup, me too, Hubby got painter here to touch up the walls (as we are selling house) while I go back to my mum place for the weekend.
And it also happen that hubby side got a relative who lives 2 blocks away from us passed away during my 2nd trimester. So I just go back to my mum place to stay for a few days in order to avoid their 'bad luck' when they come back.
i think as long as you are not in the house it should be ok. The reason not to let the baby inside you to hear the drilling and 'see' the drilling....
For me, I need to go CONsTRUCTION SITE with my big tummy and there is so many of DRILLINGS and cuttings, i also go till due date
i also worried, but no choice , i can't tell my boss all these right because he is not chinese
hmmm. I moved house when i was in my third trimester, and till one day before delivery, there were contractors, service man etc going in and out of the house, drilling and banging stuff.
I had to be at home cos hubby works. So far so good , my baby. Touch wood! :P
I guess you'll just have to do whatever makes you comfortable.
OMG.. i forgOt about the superstitious beliefs
i used a crewdriver to hammer the freezer ice away.. (cleaning my refrigerator)
i'm worried.. will anything happen to my baby?
Actually as what i know, both MTB and FTB are not suppose to be at home whereby drilling and knocking occured. I myself also dont't know why... Anyway, try not to... For my case, i even moved house on 7th month, my wife sometime even carry heavy things... So far nothing happen except my naughty princess keep kicking mummy a lot...Hehe..If bo bian die die must do, then just do everything with extra cautious...Think can make it one.
Sometimes it's a dilemma whether to believe or not, but when you are in a situation when things cannot permit you to follow strictly 100%, think we have to be flexible a bit. I've also just got my flat recently, my mum is very superstitious said i cannot move or even see them moving/doing any renovation in the house. So far my family have been helping my hubby to manage all the reno and moving matter....When i see my hubby doing all the cleaning and moving and i cannot help him anything, i feel really bad in my heart and i feel more stress!!
i think it's up to individual's belief. I'll choose to believe, just in case .. :P But how about doing paper crafts.. with all the cutting and pasting... ? i feel like doing some scrapbooking so when my baby is born, i can just paste photos, cos i dont't think i'll have the time to do it. But on the other hand, i also worried about the pasting and cutting. But i heard, so long it's not done on our bed can . But i also heard better dont't do anything at home. hmmm... you heard anything?
hmm, some pple say cant do jig saw also.. anyone knows why is that so ?
i am very puzzled and still trying to find out why preggies are advised against doing jigsaw.....
Does anyone know and can tell me ?
er..we changed our aircon in our room..and i have seen the guys drill holes etc..when i was in my 3rd trimester
and my son is normal...
