Have you heard anything like pregnant women cannot attend friends' wedding?
Think I heard ppls saying scare "chiong". like 2 wedding bride cannot attend each other wedding.
I've done everything above, dear daughter so far ok.. Except for funerals.. dear husband dont let me go, other than that, we're quite ok, not pantang..
retrobell, happy ocassions like wedding, birthday and baby shower, preg ladies are advised not to attend cuz to elders, these are "big, happy" ocassions, so they're afraid will crash. I did ask my mum, is crash them or me.. Hehe.. She say both also will, so not very nice.. As for funerals, they're scared will affect the baby, cuz "spirits" will linger around..
Anyway, I read from a book, that preg ladies are best advised not to attend happy and sad events that will hugely affect their emotions.. Too happy or too sad will affect the baby.. Maybe tats why elders take it as "pantang" .. =)
orrrhh.. thanks Mrs ET! even i'm preggie with number 2 still will affect?
Eh, I is dont pantang all this (dear husband and I do it behind our parents' back cuz they super pantang). Haha.. BUT, whether will affect or not, is still up to individual's thinking . If #1 you do things, they never nag then ok , but if they nag, #2 just follow their advice . Better play safe and dont offend them , else if anything *choy choy choy* happen, they'll say it's your fault...
Enjoy your pregnancy & dont worry too much..
I remember there was once i was sitting on the bed to cut some small things then after that i realise the old sayings but nothing happened to my dear daughter though.
And my dear daughter has got really smooth skin, many people ask me is it i drank lots of birdnest when i was pregnant & i told them 'no'. I never take any tonics or birdnest during my pregnancy. All this is in the genes.
i personally feel that everything is up to oneself. though whatever the old sayings this & that might be true too. But still, enjoy your pregnancy!
Actually i was not that pantang but during my 1st preg, my husband did some painting work at my front door and so conincidence my boy was born with a long patch on the leg.
Do you guys mind telling me why pregnant ladies are more prone to those dirty stuffs? My friend who has been alone at home when preggy, she tend to hear funny sound coming out...
my mom said baby will have durian shell like eczema or acne if i eat too much durian, so far only managed to get really sick (fever, flu, cough) because i think my body got too heaty.
so now they say i have to take young coconut juice so baby will have clear and beautiful skin.
are the vain mummies believing this?
What is "our yang qi quite heavy with baby"?
I thought eating too much durian will make baby fat?
I thought preggy "yin qi" more heavy "yang qi" weaker...
Woman are 'yin" ... we are weaker when preggy...
Anyway choy choy choy huh... dont tink too much...
I'm a christian so i m not suppose to be pantang......
But just in case like all mommies say dont cut or sew on bed.. things dont happen you say is pantang is happen how. Blame who also no use ..
FYI, durian is heaty but is good for baby dont over eat if not mummy will get fat. ( some say baby will be very big) i put on 24kg on my 1st preggy (6th to 7th month lol i put 15kg cos eat durian everyday almost ) but baby only 3.25kg very normal all fatty go to me... ZZzzz
heard alot of restrictions. n was nagged many times by colls (who r already mothers) n also elders. but i dont really care. dont like to b restricted. so far, baby is growing well.
