@preciousbabi: I told her last Friday le. Cos the pain has been here for quite some time already. She said could be ligament stretch. And last week I was in my 25 weeks and she already asked me to monitor baby movement in every 3-4 hours. During lunch and dinner time.
yah the one i bought is around $16 but the similar one mumindulgence is selling at $29!
i like the quality - soft and comfy. individually packaged quite nicely too. the brand is autumnz or something.
i actually still have a few nursing bras from first pregnancy, but some cannot make it, got fur balls already. so just buying a couple to replace. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]
hang in there! you and lovely baby will be alright!
Val: She didn't prescribe any painkillers? Better let her know if it gets worse..
Huh.. My gynae haven't ask me to monitor leh.. Different one meh.. Thought they should ask us to start monitoring at certain weeks.. Alamak.. The reason I'm asking is bcoz I feel less and softer movements from bb nowadays.. Then my appt still long way, 19th Nov.. Can brief me how to monitor? 3-4 hours must feel their movement how many times? And you know whether it's normal for their movement to be soft?
Pinkyval: we need to monitor movements so fast? i had an episode last week. i realised that my girl was moving v gently for 1-2days. then on the 3rd day, i can hardly feel her movements. I was trying the whole night to make her move. Shaking my tummy, on music for her, talk to her etc. No movements or response from her at all. So i got very worried. Cried all night. So when my hubby came back, i told him abt it n he sent me to kkh ard 11pm. When i reached the A&E, they asked me which week im in, i said 24weeks, so they immediately sent me to the delivery suite. I smsed my hubby to tell him tt im gg to delivery suite as he went to park his car. He got a big shock, thought im gg to deliver or anything happened to my bb. The registration at the delivery suite was v fast n the nurses was v nice. they told me they will put me on CTG monitoring n also monitor my contractions as well. It will take ard 1hr for them to see the pattern and after tt the gynae on duty will attend to me.
So i went into the room alone ( hubby not allowed to go in), they started to stripe me on the CTG monitor. They make me lie side way cos its the best way to monitor heartbeat. It was so uncomfy for me. But luckily they managed to find the hearbeat and can hear bb movements in my tummy. Throughout the 1hr plus monitoring, my girl move umpteen times. I felt so relieved. I dont know y she doesnt want to move at home. So after an hr, the gynae came n tell me that my bb is doing v well and i had no contractions at all. i was told to go home after tt. Bill only came up to $80+. I reached hm ard 1am tt night. Phew...
@Choc: Oh ya, I tried the anti-stretch mark cream last night.. Smells not bad and not too oily.. Hehe.. Sotong me.. If you didn't ask me, I think I will leave it in the bag until after birth lor.. LOL!! Thanks!
@preciousbabi: Never leh. Seems like it's normal to her..
She never say how many times. She only said baby must move. But then on Monday I also can hardly feel my baby move. Usually his movement is very obvious. But on that day even if he move also very soft and mild. I was a bit worried but I told myself since I felt him move a bit also consider as move. Then I was thinking maybe my baby was too tired. Cos I slept very late on Saturday night. I only slept at around 5 plus in the morning and Sunday also hardly take naps. But on Tuesday my baby started to move very vigourously, especially at night when me & my hubby was playing with him. He was literally throwing punches and kicks at the same time. Hehe..
@Mi mi: Woahhh.. You and your hubby must be super scared & worried. But glad everything is well. Maybe your girl was sleeping? I read somewhere that babies slept for 20 hours when in our tummy. So maybe on that day your girl was sleeping very soundly without turning her body. Did the gynae say how come her movement from soft became hardly can be felt?
pinkyval: gynae din say much regarding y i cant feel much movements. she juz told me everything is ok n the monitor showed alot of bb movements. Its juz that sometimes we cant feel it. She said its call fluttering at this stage and we will b able to feel more definite movements when we enter 3rd tri.
But since that episode, my girl has been moving alot n her movements are quite strong. Maybe she knew that mommy was scared stiff by her. haha..
Mami B: Your bleeding episode sounds soo.. scary.. i would have freaked out...
Leg cramps: Me too.. But I usually experience in when sleeping.. Nowadays seldom liaoz.. My husband says, cover your feet when you sleep. Could be too cold, so leg cramp.. I find leg cramps even more painful than childbirth.. hahaa..
@Val: For your case maybe it's really your bb pressing on you as your pain fade away when you are not in a lying position. For my case, it hurts more when I wake up and walk to the toilet. When peeing, I cannot exert too much force too. It will only go away after afew minutes of rest on the bed. It felt like something v heavy is pressing/hanging in my tummy.
Hubby & I have not even start to think of a name.. That time wanted to borrow baby name books from the library but we forgot to bring our ICs along so can't borrow. Then Sun Plaza's library got no books on baby names..
@PreciousBabi: I feel my girl's movement more than kicks nowadays and her kicks are softer/lighter as compared to last time. Sometimes I can't even feel her kicks/movements if I don't put my hand on my tummy. But sometimes I can feel her head/buttock (I assume bcoz the area is big and round) stroke against my tummy. The feeling is v weird but I kind of enjoy it. Haha..
My hubby also said I never drink milk later bb come out don't like to drink milk. Haha.. But I started to take calcium tablets from Brand's so not sure if I can skip my milk or not. Hehe.. Btw, I tried the sample from Anmum, both chocolate and vanilla flavour and I like their chocolate maternal milk. It's retailing at $20.20 near my place. And I got a tin of Similac mum which I have yet to try. Any comments on Similac maternal milk?
@Mi Mi: I'm glad that your bb is doing well. But the nurse took quite sometime to find your bb's heartbeat huh.. My gynae always find my bb's heartbeat v fast le.
@Eviangal: Sure or not? That means if I can tahan the leg cramps, I can tahan the labour pain? Haha..
@Joanne: Would be glad if you can tell us if the fair is worth going or not bcoz I'm staying so far away from the venue.
zanta: thats provide if you opt for epidural horz.. Cos after epidural.. I got no more labour pains liaoz.. All the way till the time my bb pops. It was only after the stitching did I feel pain again.. I felt pain at the abdomen area. The nurse told me thats bcos my uterus is shrinking..
Soo.. if u didnt opt for epidural.. child birth of cos more painful la..
And one thing is the contractions are intermittent. Come and stop.. Whilst leg cramps is pain all the way till it goes away ma..
i've been drinking maternal milk right after my morning sickness gone. but i found that i gained weight very fast. 1 wk gain 1 kg. i am very scared that i will b overweight. so i am drinking HL daily now. for my 1st and 2nd pregnancy i will not gain so much weight per month as i didn't drink maternal milk at all.

I can meet you at Hypermart when you are there to collect so you don’t need to bring so many home.. Let me know [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]
@Zanta: Ya lor, don’t know why the movements getting softer.. Will remember to check with gynae at next visit.. Makes me worried sometimes.. I tried Anmum Vanilla flavour, didn’t like it.. Haven’t try the Chocolate flavour yet.. And also Dumex Mamil Mama Vanilla - I like but cannot find in NTUC leh!
@SLim: That's what my gynae say lor.. Will put on weight very fast, so ask me not to drink.. But my gfs say cannot don't take milk at all leh.. Contradicting.. Haiz.. Better drink abit, if not bb next time don't like milk I die!! Can use HL milk to replace maternal milk ah?
By the way, if bf need to buy formula to store also ah? Which brand to recommend please? And is it until we decided to stop bf or no more bm than change over to formula? Paiseh ah.. First time alot of things don't understand leh..
@preciousbabi, i will buy formula to store. i like enfa series. so for newborn will be enfalac A+. both of my elder kids drinking enfa series. first few days, i think i may not hv sufficient bm for bb(case by case), so need fm to top up. last confinement, my CL will make fm for my baby as she dun want to wake me up during midnight. HTHs
@zantarina, first time i opt for epidural, 2nd i was like u, want to try natural birth w/o epidural. but when i pain until can not tahan, the doctor dun wan to give me the epidural. if u wan to hv it, must make up your mind earlier. this time, i will opt for epidural for sure. bcos last time experience until now i still can not forget. think twice...

[IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif]
I called hyperstore and told them i paid deposit for 2 car seat but according to the sales person at kkh , he said i can change my request for up to 10 units. all 4 colours are available. They said i will have to speak to the sale manager at hyperstore again when i am there else can only buy 2 units.
so ladies i cant 100% confirm if i can buy up to 10 units at the moment. Will double check again.
well even if i cant get the 10 pieces the sale should be at kkh again on 27 nov. but stock collection is at hyperstore .
Cnicole.. Thanks... I will cnfrm color later... Wanna pm hp no for easier contact??
U are gonna have bb boys are u?? Add me in fb lah... Many cutey rompers for boys also... Heeee... I should knw where u stay.. So shld be ok
Evian... Ok.. Must include me in.. In midst of sorting orders
I havent drink milk.. So much i want to bt like lazy.. My earlier forum mummies.. A lot didnt like similac.. So all donate to me.. I ws lucky
Abt bb milk... I swear by similac since bb no 1 n soon wait i go find all numbers so tat u mummies cn get free samples of stage 2 6mnths abv milk tins coz they dun promote stage 1 milk as want bbs tobl b breastfed.... Tmc will ask u wat milk u want to gv unlike kk...so u cn decide.. My opinion.. No harm in similac whilw trying to establish milk supply
I tried MamilMama, EnfaMama, Anmum and Friso before and found that Anmum taste suit me most. Mamil and Enfa are both more sweet compare to Anmum, and I don't like the Friso taste. So currently I m drinking a cup of Anmum every morning. I have a tin of free Similac from FBI card but have yet to try it, so can't comment.
Actually I like fresh milk as well, but then peoples say don't drink too much cold drink, if not baby easy to get caugh and sick after born. So i cut down fresh milk and take maternal milk lor.
Cnicole, can I join in the purchase of the bb seat? I went to hyperstore they said the carseat promotion at Kkh is without warranty that's why cost for 49.90. The hyperstore selling at 89.90. How do I transfer u the money n I will like to have the orange colour car seat. =)
