i think hving baby nt cheap too. a real challenge for me n hubbie. Married Dec, Feb got hse then renovate then April pregnant.. Wah....



To make it worse we didnt take any loan for marriage n reno hence use up all cash. skali pregnant, panic a bit.. quickly rent out a room in my hse..

Itching to know too, but the fun of it overides the "itch".



Plus, my FIL & MIL v "grandson-oriented". So i dun wan to know & not let them know, so they wont go disappointed & their negativeness affect my feelings thruout my whole pregnancy.

Bel : Shld get a maid! If u got a maid, ur hb won’t have to “suffer” in taking care of bb lor and it makes both ur lives easier too.



Tam : Ive got 2 tubes of Ben & Jerry at home lor. Wahahahahaha. I simply dun care lah and juz eat when I want to. :p

 
Ez: I think in aus, there is one day whereby the shopping centres and supermarkets close at a later time right? Grab some food that can last you for a few days.

Lovie: Haha... I also like Ben & Jerry's! Their flavours all so sinful and full of 'liao' inside.. But i think i better wait a few more weeks til the 'scar' mark lessens then try again. Hee..



Raine: Congrats! [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]



Ez: Guess the pace of life in aussie slower and some ppl like that peace and quiet.. But i think now u alone there sure will feel quite bored... Unless u have friends there can go out with or visit, else i agree it's quite sian.. Ur tummy feeling better?

Hello... everybody... well , did anybody feel the bb kicking yet ? perhaps becoz this is my first pregnancy.... i dun feel anything yet...



Lovie : well.. me slipped in the home toilet due to slippery floor.. me fell on my back...and injured my back ligaments...hurts very badly..



Dr said duing pregnancy, the back ligament will loosen.. thus it takes longer for pregnant mother to recover...



all mummies to be, pls remember to be extra careful when go toilet.. dun be like me.. sob sob..

Tam : the bah kut teh I had was wif the herbs type.. dark color soup.. if u like peppery type, must go to Keppel Road, near PSA there..

Calysta: Oh no.. please take good care.. rest well after your fall. Hope u recover soon.. Btw, I haven't really feel my bb kicking yet.. But these days, i feel something weird, like a gassy feeling in my tummy but quite unsure if it's gas or my baby..



whoofy: Oh.. I like the herbal kind.. dun quite like peppery ones.. Like to eat with You tiao.. can absorb the soup... Thinking about this is making me drool.. urghh...

 

whoofy

Active Member
Tam : yes yes.. I had the you tiao too.. and the salted veg and pig trotters.. hahahaa..

Woofy & Tam : envy that u all can eat bat kut teh...I used to like Bak Kut Teh (peppery one) alot... but ever since i got pregnant.. most of my favourite food, i can't stand the smell... dunno why.. sob..



Tam L : Me too...i feel very bloated with gas nowadays... i read from the maternity book that it is common to have lots gas during pregnancy..



To all mummies: btw, did any of ur grandparents ask u all not to watch TV , animal planat ? my grandma ask me to avoid seeing monkeys, tigers, lions... ( pictures, on TV and in ZOO).. well... me just feel abit weird...



alot of aunities told me to avoid chilli , they said too much chilli , baby will have piles.. avoid mutton else baby will have epilesy.. avoid crabs and sotong else baby fingers will be itchy? have anyone heard of it before? I am not that kind of 'pandan' mother... bt i am just wondering whether are these facts or myths... mmm... any thoughts ?

Tam : yeah.. jus walk all the way till the end .. it's a coffee shop at the corner..

Think I will also bring my parents in laws & hubby there next time..

calysta: i think its all old wives tales. do they mean in various cultures where they eat a lot of chilli, or in indian culture where they eat a lot of mutton, all their babies have problems? cannot be right.. so all not scientifically proven, shd just take everything with a pinch of salt.



btw i think a few of us here have felt baby's kicks. some of us is fluttering feeling, some bubbles, some waves + 'stab-stab' - every mummy might be different ba. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] mostly those abt 16 weeks and above..

 
Tam_L: You should try. I also like the bak kut teh there. It was intro to me by hb when we were still dating. hehe The soup is different from the usual kind of bak kut teh.



calysta: I like to take spicy stuff. I did eat crab and sotong too. I seldom take sotong as I am not a fan. Mutton is a no no for me. I don't eat mutton at all.

raine : I've yet to feel baby kicks.. perhaps still early as I'm at 14wks now only.. but I did see baby kicking during my last visit to gynae.. so energetic lor.. was shock & amaze..



calysta : agree wif Raine's advice.. some of the dos & dons hav no medical proof.. So wats most important for us is to hav a balance meal, and everything moderate. I've personally eaten crabs a few times and also mutton mutarbak lor..

But some food tat we must try to avoid are those "cooling" ones.. pineapple, bananas, bitter ghout.. etc..

Calysta,



Agree wif Raine & whoofy.. no scientific proof yet.



My mum told me some myths too. i just follow her advice, cos i dun wan to upset her by not following.



Depends on wat u think & feel. To follow or not... ^_^

Hi all!



Calysta: I haven't gone to try the ba kut teh but had the craving after whoofy talked about it.. hee.. Don't worry about the can't stand the smell part cos it will past.. I also have some food that I previously would eat but I can't have them now.. Esp those fried stuff, once I smell them, I feel nauseated. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif] No more KFC for me. Hee.. The gas in tummy is also quite irritating. Btw, I haven't really heard about the watching tv thingy.. but my mum did say can look at beautiful stuff, esp beautiful babies and our baby will be beautiful.. haha.. About avoiding chilli, i only know that chilli will increase heartburn, so try not to eat too much..



Whoofy, Bel: Thanks for the recommendation.. Shall go try the ba kut teh.. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]



Bbin: Hope today's better for u.. ur tummy still pain?



Lovie: Choc chips with banana... yums! Take care lovie... if possible, try to get more rest over the weekend.. these days, weather is quite weird... keep raining at nights.. keep warm.. Try to eat more fruits.. About supplements, gotta ask ur doc.. think things like vit C should be quite ok..
