My hubby was unable to find it and i told him to ask the pharmacist for it and he finally found it. It cost around $6+
However, if your wound is healing almost 70%-80% and you run out of Procanol, you can wash your wound with plain water. Not nec need Procanol... This is as advised by my gyane

I am still using the 2nd bottle and my wound is healing good..by right it should have healed but still using it as I feel that it is not 100% healed...
where will you be delivering? KK, Thomson Medical Center, Mt A , etc ?
if it is not enuff, rinsing it with water is also good...this is as per advised by my gynae... =)
Wishing you a smooth pregnancy ahead!
CONGRATS on the arrival of your cute little bundle of joy!
be careful and take note of your gal. check if she has jaundice bcoz like many baby, my gal developed jaundince 3 days after she discharged with me though she was given the all clear signal with a test on the very day she was discharged.
BUt i think your gal should be fine
Take care and welcome to motherhood! =)

Welcome to motherhood! =)
Heyhey, like you, i also feel lonely w/o my hubby...very scared when he is not at home. Ya , just wish he is with me every mins by my side... hehehe =P
So how's everythg now? More or less, i have settled down ... your side and Shiyi's side ok?
our gals are 18th ,21st and 22nd Jan baby! hehe
almost 1 after another immediately =P
you take care and rest well and more ok? =P
iwan2noe mummy, I'm handling quite well. But when night comes, I will hug onto hub and tear. So did your hub stay with you day and night? Taking leave to accompany you? Guess I will be crying like a baby on Monday when he travels. He's travelling for business next monday for a week. I dont know if I can handle without him. Mummies, do keep me company in this forum, yes??
am copin ok too..took baby to polyclinic for checkup and her jaundice lvl is normal..
but kinda frustrated in the beginning cos milk supply has not came in enuff for my baby that is y she keeps waking up in the midnite for more milk.
althou hubby did not take any leave but he still wakes up in the midnite to help out, and also gave me hugs and kisses to console me..hehe
Pls try to sun your baby near your baby's room window. Not direct sunlight though, but near to the window where ray of gentle sunlight can shine thru. Of coz dont open your windows too big esp if the wind at your place is strong. baby tends to get cold easily...
This is a tip advised by my aunt. Had i know, my baby's juandince level wont be beyond the normal range ...and need to be hospitalised.
remb only sun your gal in early morning gentle sunlight like 7-8am sun and early evening, around mayb 5pm etc. depends on the sunlight ...must be gentle sunlight not those strong ray...
It should be available. Like mentioned earlier, as procanol is an controlled medicine, you need to ask the pharmacist for it. Just like what my hubby did.
It is not exp also. $6 plus.
If you cant find it at guardian, you may wanna try unity pharmacy(under NTUC)
In the worst case scenario, you can use warm tap water to douche your wound area. Wash it with the warm tap water also can. Remb to dab dry after you wash each time.
yes, I delivered in Thomson Medical Center also... =) Aiyo, i think it is normal as our hormones went thru a drastic change so we tends to get emotional easily. mE to, but for other issues.. And I also feel like wanting to be with my hubby as much as possible.. hehe like you =p
Sure will, i usually check mummysg forum daily...we meet here ok? =)
dont be too sad... must be brave ok? you r a mummy now! must be strong and brave so we can raise our baby and teach them well, ok?
JIA YOIU & Sayang
