I wanna ask something ... do you all have the habit to take breakfast? I never had before I got pregnant. Even more so now, no appetite for breakfast. Will it be bad for the child? But I do tend to make up for it more during lunch and dinner.
Yeah prob not everybody has tested, no like me so KS, long long ago tested hahaha.
I think u better try to eat. Eating breakfast is gd for health, not to mention now that u r preggie. Coz when u wake up from sleep, ur body is 'empty'. Blot is thicker & clots more easily. U shd eat something to kickstart ur system. regular meals is impt.
Jul_04: Yeap, I know that ... but feeling so nauseous after eating. *sigh* I guess it's really noble to be a mommy. Your whole life changes for the little life within you.
jenifur: Thanks for the welcome. Yeap, am trying to take little bites. DH also encouraging me to take every morning. Coz' I wake up to make breakkie for him and he'll be sweet enough to leave some of it for me coz' he knows I can't eat much. I've seen my OB earlier this week, that's how my EDD was determined. But I guess it was a little early coz' I just passed Week 4. I am making my next appt to see at beginning of Week 7, can hardly wait ... coz I wanna see heartbeat!
<font face="comic sans ms"><font color="0000ff">Jul_o4,
So qiao, my gynae is also from ACJ. I saw Dr. Joycelyn Wong for my #2 DD so will stick w her. Actually this is my 4th pregnancy, had a miscarriage b4 I had #2 DS. Guess no matter how experience will still be gan cheng one lah</font>
I am trying to do a chart for our thread so do give me e info like EDD, Gynae pls.
jul_04: Hhahaha, yah man ... I would love to eat too ... for the little one. I dun care about putting on weight one, as long as it's to keep the little one healthy. But I just dun have appetite now. I nibble lor ... But I do get hungry very easily now. I am able to resume my sleep now, dun have to wake up in the wee hours of the morning.
cloudme: DD still very young indeed ... you able to cope? Got help? Coz' can be quite challenging eh? Are you currently BF-ing?
stella: Welcome welcome ... if you plan to visit gynae, better book soon. CNY round the corner ... might be a little hard to book. I just saw OB earlier this week and my EDD is Sept 10th!
Jul_04: Hopefully it maintains lor. Can't imagine waking up in the middle of the nite and then not being able to go back to bed. That kinda feeling very unbearable. I suddenly feel like eating prawn noodle soup ...
Gals ... actually I should recommend you all to watch National Geographic's [In The Womb]. I think can find it on youtube, in 10 parts. I was watching it with DH last nite. Especially for those expecting your #1s. I think it really helps you to understand how the little one is growing within you and what to look out for in the u/s. As usual, my DH will cringe in fear when it comes to the actual deliver. Aiyoh ... then our own deliver, he sure to faint one.
Jul_04: Yah, me too, coz' lunch time liao mah ... stomach should be growling already. I wanna make lamb chops for myself for dinner tonite, but I hear stories about how we shudn't be eating mutton, I feel xien. Then don't know what to eat. Hate to cook for 1. Yes, you should get DH to watch <font color="0000ff">In the Womb</font> with you, it really helps the both of you to understand. Am quite touched to see DH so excited about the little one's growth etc sometimes. I am sure he's gonna be a great daddy.
lxlb: Yeah, watch the video and remember to get DH to watch with you if possible. Have you tried checking forums for Beijing expats, sometimes there might be recommendations there? Beijing United should be pretty good. But definitely expensive, unless your insurance covers.
jenifur: Thanks for compiling the list. *muack muack*
Thanks <font color="ff0000">jen</font> & <font color="ff0000">fatbobo</font>
Wow, can't figure out how to do the table thing...
U have to decide for urself what u wanna eat & dun eat lor. If really wanna observe, there's a lot of stuff & stories abt things that we cannot eat. I will be v sian also.
Mostly, I make sure eat healthy, avoid raw/undercooked food, make sure to warm up food properly, avoid raw pineapple & chin chow, then can liao. If I have to not drink tea, not eat chcolate, I will die lor.
So to each his own heehee...
Haha I arrowed hubby to go find the In the Womb for me to watch liao!
Jul_04: Yeah, speaking of which, I've been eating the food after it turns cold.
Coz' always eat in small portion and then leave it aside and very lazy to heat up again. I haven't been cooking late. If I were to cook, I'd most probably eat healthy. Always make sure I've got at least a fish or meat and greenies and soup for every dinner. So DH found the video for you already?
