Breastfeed your baby for awhile then will slim down faster. I'm always very curious about how much weight my baby put on.
I shall be breastfeeding, taking care of baby and doing my own laundry (mother in law's pantang) - Hopefully all these will help me to lose weight faster.
Yeah I'm back from my gynae appointment. Guess what. Baby's weight is now 2.7kg already. 4weeks back was 1.5kg. I myself didn't gain much weight. Yup i love going to appointment too, cos can see my baby.
Huh, for the first month nobody help you to take care of your daughter? Confinement period is very tiring one . This is what i heard. Wah even need to do your own laundry, as in washing those bra and undies itzzit? Use disposable undies better, use and throw no need to wash.
My mother in law doesn't know how to take care of baby and I am not hiring a confinement lady to help me. Not just undergarments but anything I wear, my mother in law very pantang onesh.
At 36 wks i oredi gain 20kg...baby is 2.9kg.. Gosh i hope i cn loose out those kilos that i've gained...
My next gynae appointment is week 35 which is 2 weeks later. I think he dont't want to let me worry about my baby being over-weight, cos every time i visit him, my weight didn't increase much but instead my baby's weight increase a lot. So this time round he only say "oh your baby is growing well inside."
Huh mother in law doesn't know how to take care of a baby? Then in the past how she bring up her son? Luckily my mother in law not those super pangtang type. If not i will go crazy, die die also cannot stay with her. & will have lots of conflicts with her. Why dont't you ask your mom to help you out during confinement period? I'm going back home to do my confinement after i give birth cos my mom knows how to cook and my house bigger got more space.
Hope my baby dont grow too big if not hard to give birth ._." Anyways.. I going back to my mother during confinement.. somehow own mother will take care of own daughter better from my POV..
So you try not to walk alot... use disposable panties throughout the confinement period... i tink its more convenient.
I already feel extremely guilty to trouble my mom, she will try to rush home after work to cook for me then ask Hubby to bring here. Beside having to work long hours, she is also helping my brother and sister In law to take care of my niece and nephew.
Initially I also thought of going back for my confinement but it's quite troublesome to move the things here and there, it's also inconvenient for Hubby and my place is already pretty crowded.
No choice bah.
Oh so your mother in law never took care of her son before. LOL. So long ago people already start doing this. Oh. How old is your niece and nephew? My house is pretty crowded too but i just feel comfortable staying at my own house even though its a little bit crowded. Confinement is very important so must do a good one.
I've gained another 3 KG!
My baby girl's 2 KG at 33+weeks.
