littlej - i grew up family B style.. hubby too (though he's extremely pampered, mother in law does a lot of stuff for him!). I guess i will stick to my weekly pt helper now.. and make it twice weekly from Jan 2014 onwards.. with 1 child, should be able to manage without permanent stay in helper i guess.. with 2, then maybe can rethink... but i always believe that helper should only do cleaning & washing & probably cooking? As for tending to the child, no matter how tired we as parents are, should never let someone else do those for us... that family A seeing child hug helper... dont they feel that something is not right?
ebichan - yep, i will! thanks! tho a bit lazy to take salt from kitchen into my bathroom.. heehee.. but i will... scared to fall sick now also...
quincy - yes!! at any time, whether bfp or ttcing, it is good to always drink a lot of water! =) somehow i think today i drank way too much... i couldnt wear my wedding band.. hehe... time for hubby to buy me a new diamond band!! wahaha!
Ebichan: Quincy is talking about preggers having extra attention from nearby ppl, like they like to be close to you n suddenly alot topic to say
Quincy: I preferred salty food to sweet stuffs. But some things like popcorn I prefer sweet than salty hehe. My Mum cook vinegar pig trotters is sweet type,.I dont like, But my aunt's salty vinegar pig trotters super yummy. I decided to ask my aunt cook for me vinegar pig trotters when I confinement lol!! So sorry Mum!
Dragontail and littlej.. Thanks.. My Gynae said it is the pressure of baby. Baby press on some nerve. And sometimes is utreus expanding.. Baby has grow quite big old. Her movements become uncomfortable.
Oh for family style... I grew up with maids as well.. But I still attach to parents but of course they are in my heart but can't compare to parents... Even though both of my parents are at home, they are so busy with their own business. We all grew up with maids and relatives. But one thing difference is our maids and relatives dont't stay at night. They all go back their home.
Next time I shall ask my mom did she had any problems with child attached to maid. But My mom dont't allow me to let baby sleep with maid. I have migraine and scare will have headache if baby cry at night. But she said big "No".
Mew: Dr Wu is well known for helping couples to conceive. Her clinic always have couples go see her together. I just started with her, so far body response to her med quite well.
Oh Ya Ebichan, are you feeling any preggy symptoms?
Can i have details on Dr Wu?
I used to consult Dr Su from Bukit Batok. I conceived the same month while taking her traditional chinese medicine powder, but lost it. Gynae could not find any baby at my first scan at 10w Im still trying to concieve after my MC in Feb, so thought it's time to consult the experts... Even my 2-month old Clearblue Fertility Monitor doesn't help! I'm kinda getting impatient...
Last cycle had breast tenderness quite early on but maybe because I re-started CW Gold
But this cycle my breast tenderness appeared 2 days before.
I have heartburn but maybe because stressed eating when not hungry
stress from work only.
Littlehamster, do you really have a hamster?
I wanted to buy one but Im moving house so husband said, please dont have so many things to move to next place. sigh
ebichan: well just that preggy mothers have the motherly feel that attracts people to them, want to talk to them.
feeling feverish...o coming~ anybody got this kind of feel too?

Ooo - I should give this shu eyelash curler a go. I buy as a present for myself =p next weekend's shopping item =)
Happilymarried - oh ya 7th month not advisable to go swimming. Also dont't stay out late!
Mew - there are ladies here who consulted dr Su too. I think tvh consulted her and got a bfp and delivering 2 weeks after me. Dr wu is at amk or jurong. Where do you stay? Wow, I think you are the only one here using a fertility monitor! Are you also seeing a fertility specialist? How old are you and hubby?
Happilymarried - water retention doesn't mean you should drink less water. On the contrary, should drink more!!! Hahaha - and I think it is normal for fingers and feet to swell abit during pregnancy. My fingers did swell a bit and I can't fit into my old Havianas anymore. Btw - I think with an infant - best not to wear any accessories at the risk of scratching infant or baby may just pull etc. so hahaha no need new diamond ring!
Oh gosh - I sound like a man saying that right. That's exactly what my old man told me when I asked for a push gift - and hinted I wouldn't mind a pair of solitaire earrings. Hahaha. Anyway for me - as long as muffin comes out healthy and happy and my old man tries his best to help - I am contented.
Natalie / poohy- I wanna ask you two something. How much did your hubby help during the first 4 months and in what ways did he help?
Happilymarried - I find Quinny heavy and bulky. The wheels so big as well. I myself got a McClaren stroller. I wanted something light, easy to clasp and manage on my own, and can fit into my car. Ie I dont't have to remove everything in the boot to fit a stroller =)
this feverish feel just got us into bd-ing lol
Mew - i got my bfp after Dr Su's 2 months medication, very much on covered base n discipline on chinese medicine dont get impatient jiayou
Quincy lol feverish state leads to good result?? Good one!
AF is expected weds. So hopefully it doesn't make appearance and I will test Thursday with digital
my b***bs hurt but feels like PMS type
My temp is still elevated so really just hoping this one is a real positive with strong sticky beans!
Will you girls test day of AF or after?
ebichan no worries. your hubby still in his 30s
you both will make it
today on leave having a me day! <3
ebichan - if its me I will test on day of expected af.. & its also impt to go gynae n get blood test for hcg count & progesterone level... you may need to start pregnancy supplements.. depending on your prog level in blood, maybe some progesterone support is needed to support the womb.. as what littlej said.. based on our age factor ( > 30) we will want to do all we can to protect if its a healthy beanie!
quincy - wahaha! yesterday hot bd session & today you on leave? this is what I call enjoying life!!
ebichan - r you already taking folic acid? pms symptoms & pregnancy symptoms can be quite similar.. but elevated bbt is a very very strong sign!
dragontail - is today pop eggies day with dr chew?
During my elder girl time, my maternity leave is only 2 mths I think..if not 3. That time I stay over at my mum place as my husband is working shift..so he will come to my mum place on his off day..help out on changing of diaper n etc ..but he doesn't need to wake up at night as I direct feed..Originally Posted by littlej:820299

guess what i am pampering myself to now? mac breakfast muahaha
Quincy - shiok .
Ebichan - I will test on day of af. The reason why I tested one day earlier for me was because I was due to fly off on day of af! So yeah I cancelled my trip =) anyway Not that i wanna be a wet blanket - but i would say try not to read too much into the symptoms and live life normally until wed / thurs. just dont't run and lift heavy things - and no cold drinks - things you are supposed to do whilst trying to concieve anyway. For me - I thought af was going to arrive and even wore pads just in case!!! So it was unexpected surprise when I saw a + on the hpt. I mean - that's me - I'd rather be surprised than be disappointed. So I tend not to hope too much and live each day as it comes =)
Dragontail - how was doc chew?? And you now have neat makeup display?
Ebichan.. I have AF sympotons too. I thought my AF coming soon. But my hand itchy and tested. Bfp. dont't worry too much.
Littlej... I too ask hubby to get me a solitaire earring. He asked me to take one side for this year and next year one side.. Lol..
I took morning leave this morning to get some more sleep. you know what.. Ppl doing renovation.. I hate it..
