Hi blessedmum, do take care...the weather pretty erratic so don't kena rain when you go out. Seems like some of our 1st trimester symptoms like nausea can return in 3rd trimester, I have been feeling nauseous too...

Hi miaiko, I'm a Dec baby myself and always loved my bdaes during this Christmas month...hope baby feels the same. By e way, r u Jap? Hubby and I adore Japan and can't wait to bring our little one there too! Hub is 1/4 Jap...so I think junior will be 1/8 Jap? *hehe*

Hi sus, my weight gain is 10kg - now @ 56.5kg. Gynae say will probably gain 12 kg in total at point of delivery, told me not to diet but also not to binge esp on carbo lah or else baby too big hard to push out for my small frame.
What's your gain so far?

Hi miaiko, after give birth can continue using the stretch cream minimise the marks. I'm using Mothercare's Mum & Beyond, it's a new range $19 per bottle for pre and post preggie...so far so good & love the smell...of course I can't see if stretchmarks have appeared on my butt...but I think I see cellulite there! ARRGHHH!

Hi samval, I think all parents will be very proud of kids when they do well, you must be beaming with pride - hey you also carried your little genius for 9-10 mths - Credit goes to you too! Your family must be really happy.
How did the gynae swap go? U decided not to?

sus/miaiko: i took only 2 photos but my hubby filmed the whole event! hee hee. total around 3 hours spent there! hey, my last visit last week, i also asked gynae if placenta has moved up and she said moved up a little but not totally yet, thus will monitor. hmm.. i also wanna go for normal delivery cos i'm never a fan of c-sec (unless due to complication/medical reasons).

Hi sus...take care take care, all will be well. JIA YOU! Last leg of race to go!

Hi blessedmum, but that extra 10kg is very heavy for me already maybe cos I hardly exercise except walking during shopping. I hope can lose it and maybe more after birth...also can't be too ambitious since wanna breastfeed...baby comes first ya?

Hi Miaiko...hubby's grandma 100% Jap, grandpa Indo-Chinese. So if i simple count, I guess hubby considered 1/4 Jap? We travelled to Japan twice within 6 mths just can't get enuf of the country - mainly the food lah *yummy*.
Been to Matsuyama, Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura, Sapporo, Sounkyo, Asahikawa.
Hope to explore more...maybe can't be so gungho already with baby in toll.

sus: wow.. wish I only gain 5kg. But i've gained double! sigh.. gotta work hard to lose weight.

bluen16:eek:h.. i long had stretch marks on my butt. got it after puberty when I suddenly slim down. and tell me abt cellulite. got lotsa at my butt too! yikes!! The Mothercare's stretch mark cream really gd?

Samval: yah lor. Let's hope our placenta will move further up so we can try natural delivery.

Hi good morning ladies… it’s a rainy day again today… my marketing director saw me in the lift, mentioned, this kind of weather we should be sleeping in! I agree!!!! Hahaha

Oh ya, I read thru last night posting, someone mentioned about sterlising right? Just to share what I learnt in my MT A anenatal class, the nurse mentioned, if u are using sterilizer, need not put the sterlising tablets/pills. But for me, I buy avent, it comes with a packet of pills, u will need to wash it for the first time with that b4 using. As for the milk bottles/teats, the nurse mentioned, once u sterlised, do not run under tap water again, if u need to wash, wash with cool boiled water.

Good Morning, everyone. =)

sus : Thanks for checking out the nursing bras. =) I've already got 6 pcs fm Mothers En Vougue - m wearing them now as maternity bras, & will use them as nursing bras aft birth. =) perhaps I'll hunt for another 1 or 2 pcs of cheaper ones when i go shopping. =)

ladies : thanks for missing me & my xiao bao bei yestd... hehe.... I may come in here less often these few days, been busy at work...

Babystarlet : I'll like to add on another 2 boxes of milk bags, if you hv not place the order. If already placed, then it's ok. =) (I finally recall i used to get "The First Years" & "Gerber" bags at ard $17 per box during special offers... so, $6 a box is a steal!)...

Ladies : juz to share with u, i ever asked my gynae's opinion abt cord blood banking. He does not think it's necessary UNLESS we hv family history of blood disease.

cjteng:u need to wash the bottles in a bowl of warm soapy water first.The drop of dish washing detergent is put into the bowl of warm water, not directly into the bottles. Then rinse under tap water. Only after cleaning, then u sterilise.

Active Member
sus: oh yes.. u mention u oso Jap fan! haha. welcome welcome!

me been getting heartburn lately. seems quite bad. maybe coz of this, I din eat as much as first and 2nd trimester. Hopefully this will prevent me from gaining any further weight :p

Samval : dun think she'll be so free to read soooo many pages of forum... haha... if i rem correctly, i think her father is/was oso a gynae.. hmmm... can't imagine she's a doc now, i still rem her in pinafores... haha...

sus : 1 pc is priced at $29.90 i think, i bought @ 2 for $50.00, not exactly cheap, but cheaper than those fm Mothercare, & bcos the material is knit, it's very comfy... I tried & purchased at BHG Bugis. Alternatively, can order online or go to their shop at Orchard Delfi - http://www.mothersenvogue.com/index.php

cjteng:
1) put a drop of dish washing detergent into a clean bowl of warm water. Stir to mix.
2) put the bottles that u wana wash, into this bowl of warm soap water.
3) use brush to start cleaning the bottles from inside out, with this warm soapy water.
4) use soft sponger to clean the teats and the screws.
5) pour away the soapy water, and rinse the bottles under the running tap to wash away the soap
6) put the clean bottles into the steam steriliser to sterilise.
