greetings to all.i was feeling so bored @ home with nothing to do therefore hubby suggested a family trip with my parents in-law n brother in -law for a 5D4N cameron,genting n kl trip in march which by then i shld be about 2-3mths pregnant. i would like to seek advice as to whether is it safe to travel in my condition as from what i know the 1st 3 mths o pregnancy is unstable n crucial ? i would love to go as i,m really feeling very very bored @ home n i would definitly appreciate short holis like this but then again nothing else is more impt than my little one ? pls advise?
hi catty thks 4 your reply hmmm @ e moment i have not been doing anything @ all just e inital period o asking around friends who just delivered for info on their gynaes you c therefore i have not decided on one yet to seek advice from was told to visit a gyane in another month's time. @ e moment i,m just rotting @ home , started of cse taking fresh milk n folic acid that is alll cse reli lost @ what to do or when to do what you know what i mean ??? have not experienced any morning sickness yet thk god but have been eating and sitting all e time so much so that i get all e burping everynw n then n i guess indigestion as well. hmmm feeling like my tummy is getting bigger not bcse o preggy but bcse o all e eating n sitting dwn so sad n worried. is this hw things work sob sob reli scared out o shape
Actually it all depends on individual bodies as my 1st and current pregnancy i dont't really have the urge to keep on eating so my weight gain all this also not that much but as for my 2nd pregnancy i tend to eat a lot and can consider is a non-stop so when i reach my due date, my figure was like penguin..
Maybe you can spend sometime on net to surf about pregnancy info, shop around your estate / shopping centre, watch some serials drama or do some light house chore, that's what i usually do when i'm not working during my pregnancy, at first i will feel bored after that when you get use to it, you will find that time pass very fast as everyday things you do seems like a routine..
if you r used to be an extrovert then its time to be introvert at this point.....read books? If hubby can afford the time ask him to take leave to spend some days with you....or take up a hobby like knitting or cooking or baking?

thk you so much for your advice and info. another thing i also experience hunger pang @ weird hours in the am like 2am ,5am etc. usu i just drink a cup o milo with bread or biscuits. is it normal to have hunger pangs in e am ? i also tend to burp a lot hmmm already limit my gassy n cold drinks intake to once a week ( very diffcult to tahhannnnnnn) but still e same. i do feel like vomtting sometimes along with all e burping . not sure if its indigestion or bcse o preggy??? hubby suggested going to doc but i just dismissed . any comments on all these occurrences????
My 1st pregnancy was sumthing similar 2 your case, with burping, indigestion n bloating all d time at week 5-9. They're all very normal. Try to east less portion in a meal, but can have snacks in between. Eat less but frequent. If your really sick n can't stand all those nauseous etc, go 2 c GP. Will give you some nausea med 2 help you ease a lil.
i dint know i was preg until baby was 9 weeks old...yeah careless mom like me. cos i always got irregular mens, so didnt bother when i missed.... no vomitting etc ...hungry -> erm..always hungry before preg also
anyways, i went natas last year and even tripped....bought flight tix and stuff... yeah sounds evil ...but i dint know i was preg..so i was doing alot of "dangerous" things also...
i travelled when i was about 25 weeks preg... so cant comment much about "safe" period to travel...but like other mommies advised, better check with gynae...
personally, when i travelled at 25 weeks, i felt very tired and rather heavy....as a result dint really enjoy myself...
diff ppl diff experience bah...
but one important thing, must get letter from doc to take flight ...just in case.
i kept mine in the bag...no one checked
go after 3 mths . so much safer then. not to mention more enjoyable too cuz i read that 2nd trimester most preggies feel more energetic and not so vulnerable to infections..
really depends on people. First three months, I barely remember that I was preg. Life was as normal.., but 2nd trimester, more lazy and tired. not sickly. but everyday just hope can crawl into bed and sleep
and even in bus/train, got chance...doze off
Just to share with you, I travel to phuket when i was 5 weeks pregnant do experience some spotting when i was there cos I am doing some water sports and went to spa.
Wanted to travel again to China when i was 27 weeks but was advised by my friend not to. This is what she shared with me, her cousin was 5mths pregnant when she travel and when on board the plane, she felt something "POP" from her tummy and she started to bleed. Since there is no doc on board, she just used a pad and wait till she touch down in Thailand before she see a doc. When visiting a doc, she could not felt her baby movement. Due to language barrier and communciation problem, she did not take any medication the thai doc prescribe. Instead, she waited till she reach Singapore and visited her gynae, by then it's too late.
Like you, I can't stay long at home long cos I am always bored. But if this is your first child, my advice is to stay put no point taking the risk. You can always choose some other time to travel. In the meantime, enjoy your pregnancy.....
ya.. please stay at home and not wonder around in foreign country.. you see, the food in other countries also dont know the hygiene up to standard or not.
