    oooh one more working day and we are off! yeah yeah!

    happilymarried- no worries. When i was preg then, i got no symptoms also..no MS...no cravings.haha..everything seems so normal and as i'm fat, some dont even know i'm preg! Think will feel the kicks more often when baby grow bigger and lesser space for movement.

    dragontail- jia you! maybe your AF wont come! woohooo....

    Poohy.. That is Pethidine injections I think. I will take all the available pain relief method.. Poohy some said epidural doesn't work for them. Is it true?

    I heard before epidural, they will numb the area first.

    I am better! Thanks. Actually I swung by crabtree to get some bath stuff. Mmmm sweet smelling stuff makes me happy.

    I'm surely sticking with dr chew for few more cycles if need be. I just need a holiday! Hee.

    I will choose no painkiller for child birth, so long as I am deem fit for natural. If cannot, no choice have to cut tummy. Ouch.

    thelay- ahhh...correct correct.thats the injection. It just make me drowsy and sleep.hahaha. Well for epidural it helps for me at least while waiting for dilation. But the gynae apparently ask the nurse to lower it when i'm about to give birth (which i subsequently know...'lower' = 'switch off'!) ...so during actual labour, it was torturing!hahaha. oppss maybe shdnt scare you all. But then heard from my friend who gave birth in pte hospital, its painless.

    I dont feel the pain when they insert at back..i guess the contraction pain is worse than the insertion of epidural. But then for a short moment after epidural, i almost black out and quickly call for nurse. Accordingy to the anaethetist, some of the medicine went out and cause the black out. scary ...but after that, its luxury...=)

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    I have epidural for my elder girl...dont rem they numb the area ..i only rem that they sanitise the area and have to stop myself from moving as the slight movement may have great impact on the place where the needle is poking.

    i dont rem hearing my gynae asking the midwife to turn off the epidural cos i dont feel anything when i am pushing nor when he stitch me up..i rem that time im still wondering whether am i pushing or not since i cant seem to feel anything..haha..but since my girl come out then i guess i must have done something right..hahah

    Er...actually vegetarian food in sg not healthy...stay away from the starchy & fried mock meat stuff. Take more salads and lean meat. Plus omega 3 fish oil supps can help reduce bad cholesterol.

    I think I read the latest "Shape" (or the previous month?) that vegetarian beehoon is not any less oily or fatty nor healthier than norm. Going vegetarian few x a week is good....but not when they are vegetarian fried beehoon or mock meat! They are really fat laden (those mock stuff are usually fried. Even so called plain vegs are also stir fried in too much oil). Salad with turkey or chix breast meat will definitely be a better alternative. Yes omega oil does help.

    Poohy, you can try tomorrow noon perhaps. I cant quite totally agree that I "should" only use fmu for opk (my gynae's advice) because I never had problem with non fmu or even night pee with a smiley. I dont usually hold pee for long hours. 1-2hours hold are ok, so long you didnt drink overly too much prior to that.

    Well...most of us are too. Lol. Best to watch diet. Homecooked food better still. Many slim ppl also have high body fat and exercise doesn't get rid of it that easily. So its best to do it thru daily diet but not "dieting". Cutting sugar & limiting carbs is very effective from my exp.

    I am interested in the staycation! Can share which hotels?

    ooooh! staycation!!

    hmm I wonder if I can go on baby moon or not...

    quincy - veg food in sg not too healthy.. mock meat in sg is just starch n salt.. try to make it habit to cut fruits at night for your hubby & in laws? also cut down on butter on toast (can use olive spread instead) & sugar in coffee/tea... try feeding him omega pills too!

    Poohy I read about your delivery story. ..something also quite similar when my elder sis shared with me hers. When she was pushing, she let out "mmmmmmm" quite loud ya know. The nurse scolded her "我不要听到声音的!!"。 hahaha indeed wasted energy. Should focus all the energy in the muscles down there!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    poohy, I was also using internet cheapies and they worked fine. Yes Dr Wu's BD dates vary. Sometimes every other day, sometimes 2 days break. Sometimes she also looks at Day. I remember she crossed the BD dates for me on the paper BBT but then she erased and changed it to a Friday. She said "I'm worried if you both do on Thurs will be too tired since you're working next day". Hee so nice.

    Wah I dont remember where she popped... her boy is going to NS later this year! Haa 18years ago already.
