Yeah... Mine simply sux...
not really. i had mini PND, was very bored confined at home. mother in law was pretty strict with me. no pc to use and had to keep lying down on bed (i got 'scolded' by a few times when i tried to sit), i nearly go mad! quite sick of those pig kidneys, yucks. i secretly threw some away when nobody was at home. hahaha!
Super unhappy with my confinement coz got issue with mother in law about traditional thingy, most of the time especially midnite & morning i need to take care of my dear son no matter how tired i am which my mother in law only help in afternoon while afternoon time is dear son sleeping time tts why have such hard time during the nite time with him. Even fall into depression for the 1st month after birth of dear son.
i dont have a very good confinement..... cuz I was looking after my son alone... Mum is working... But i thank my neighbour... she really is a nice lady... she actually inform her maid to cook for me... and ask me dont take those cold food cuz i always forgot to eat....
she even use her own wine to cook for me... my mum and I are very grateful to her...
Hi mummies, i am new to this forum and am really happy that i found this as this is a place for me to really say out all my unhappiness after my baby born 7mths ago.
for me, i will be happier during my confinement, if only my mum come and help out not my mother in law, all she care about is her DOGS at home (whether gt eat ant, whether got miss her, whether got beaten by her husband) & her darling SON(my husband) got food? She even give me COLD rice(when asked, y food so cold ? bcos she likes cold food!!!)
No tonics soup 2, she boil tonics soup only when her son is not working. I dont know whether am I the 1 who giving birth or my husband.
Bt lucky she was with me for 2 week interval with my mum so for 2weeks i was super happy wen she is not around and lucky when my mum is around i got to drink some tonics drinks.
She didnt hang out all my washed clothes, all have smell even my mate keep complain y i smell so funny, i told him, THANKS to your mum ! keke!
Just very glad each time it's over... :P
yes i was happy with my confinement,... esp the yummy food my mother in law cooks!
i guess i was pretty lucky..didnt have major ailments..:P

Those get with luck...

I like almost all tonic black chicken soups, so the food wise still alright, even have to drink red dates longan tea. but the coming of the baby is too overwhelming and got me into mild baby blues. in fact, what i dislike most is the confinement restrictions plus the change of our hormones which got me almost bizzare. emotions is out of control and got sad here and there. will need a time to adjust to new lifestyle. Still on maternity leave...
mine not very good. CL very irresponsible, forgetful n unhygienic. had to take care of my baby myself almost thru out my confinement period. didnt do a good job yet vvv calculative about her pay. very $$$ face. totally hopeless. condemned.
mine was ok because i dont have to do anything at all. My mother in law takes care of everything - Me, baby, household chores, cooking, shopping - everything! She is like a wonder super woman moving around my house as if its her house!
but after she is back to her hometown i had slight depression because suddenly everything piles up and i had to do everything myself. So confinement is like a princess but after that like ???? dont know whats the right word to describe.
My CL from hell sux big time!! Grrr.. Since Day 1, she take my house as though her house, search all over my place, despite me tell her to use what and what not to use!! Caught her peeping thru my stuffs & she just run off, never apologize! Keep on hogging on her hp even though my baby is crying!! Still can chat so loudly in the room where my baby is sleeping!!! Keep on saying my milk not enuff, baby keep on crying coz hungry! Cry only pass to me!! Hog to my SCV & sofa!! Tell me 9pm need to sleep , wake up later than me! Nite feed, I told her to feed one btl of ebm, she mix 2 btls together to feed so that baby can sleep longer!! baby vomit milk until whole shirt wet, never change!! Luckily I woke up to check... Grrr... Anyone comes over my place, keep on telling them my milk supply not enuff!! Always sit on my sofa watching tv.. until my visitors all say y your CL so free one! dont hand wash my baby's clothes! Mix her clothes with my baby clothes & mine together to wash!!! Grrrr. Within 2 weeks, I told her to pack bag, she got the cheeks to ask my dear husband for full whole month pay! I gave her more than 2 weeks pay oredi.. Grrr.. MY CL From HELL...
wah did not know such irresp CL exists...if you r planning 4 another must get some1 with good track records . Must be very. stressed and tiring 4 you when confinement is supposed to rest.

After that, she kept on appologizing coz she did not know she is like that.. what's the point rite? sigh. I was in depression manz. Luckily my dear husband was there encouraging me & mummys online.. otherwise.. sigh. Luckily all is over! Hehe.
