just wonder do most ppl happy with their confinement period??
I am, cos I enjoy confinement food..yummy!!!
During confinement it wasn't a happy one for me . I fell into depression and cried almost every other day .
Ya dont know y that time I felt that everyone only care for dear son when he comes out then no one care for me . Then start to anyhow think . Until dear husband also cannot tk it .
is like that ....
when my dear daughter & i rch hm, they also care about dear daughter more then me...
ya , when I had my first, everything seems overwhelming to me.
I enjoyed my confinements... mostly because I really wasn't confined. My dear husband took care of my all three times so I got to eat my fav foods and go out if I getting stressed out by staying at home.
I'm really glad I didn't have to follow the traditional practices. I think I'd have gone mad and died of hunger (I dont't like confinement foods)
Not happy. Nearly fell into the cliff of depression.
& CL sucks.
i enjoyed my confinement period when there's yummy food like vinegar pig trotter which my aunt made it. its simply great. i just missed and love her cooking so much! and also my mummy who bought tonics and all. but, the weather during my confinement period wasnt pleasant thou.. it was always humid which made me perspire lots and thus mood swings here n there.
i enjoyed my confinement because i had a newborn each time.
but in the first place i dont think i had any confinement. hahaha
didnt ate the usual confinement food, bathe few times daily, went out with baby in sling.
For #1, not happy. Did not get the birth I wanted, felt robbed and cheated of the whole birthing process. Think I was in mild depression.
For #2, very happy. Ate well, observe only what I wanted to observe in traditional confinement. Showered and washed my hair when I couldn't tahan.
Both times, I had no CL, no visitors (I didn't want any) everything else is the same. For me, it boils down to how my birthing went and how I bonded with my baby.
Not happy...I took care of baby myself n does everything myself. For my #1, mother in law supposed to help, she'll cook the same dish to last me thru the entire day. mother in law hospitalised after few days due to her own health prob, father in law, SILs took turn to buy me food from outside (even McChicken), when no one comes along, i'll survive on bread with egg...My auntie bought cod fish, bird's nest n other food to help me build up my health but end up mother in law cooked for all family members. At the end of confinement, we're still expected to gv ang bao to all those who had bought me food.....Worst still mother in law decides how much we shld gv....what the....
dear daughter #2, I very suay, dear husband had an affair. I left home with both dds on the 2nd day....my mum busy working oni able to cook tonic soup for me once... haizzz so both confinement not done properly....
during the last month of my pregrency, mother in law say she will take 1 wk leave to take care of me & dear daughter... In the end, she did not even take leave at all....
Luckily, dear husband manage to take 1 wk leave to help out...
Although in the end im the one who is taking care as he say he dont know hw to take care...
Not Happy . mother in law issues.
Alot of restrictions and got to do everything myself though husband helps out.
no... cant go out at all
mus wear long sleeves & wear socks
not very happy..
cos I had P.N depressions!
always angry, & cried over small issues..
but luckily, parents & Hus are very attentive & caring.
only cried once.. had slight depression.
everything's back to normal now.
7 more days, & thats the end of my confinement...
#1 super happy
#2 super happy
