(2011/08) Aug 2011

Hi Carole & rest of the mummies here, pls add me to the list. I'll be expecting a boy, EDD 2 Aug, Doc's Yvonne chan from TMC.

Excited for our first baby. Bought tons of stuff from online stores (US-based, since the exchange rate is so favourable now!) - Medala pumps, diaper bag, etc.

Any experienced mum care to share on the baby carriers or slings or wraps? Any the sleeping bag? Any Dos and Don'ts? Cheerios!


Hi Carole,

Kindly help me to update the table? We are expecting a princess [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

Hallo gals... have been MIA for some weekssss... long story to tell...

Hubby was in hospital for over 10 days where 2 nites were spent in ICU... horror right? Till now, i still very afraid of the incident happened on 20 March. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif][IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif][IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif]

He was blacked out just few mins he went to bed, and i thought he is playing jokes with me. I saw his face turned blue black, sweat a lot and eyes turned up left with only white portion... Oh My God, so i called ambulance to sent him to hospital. Then doctor diagnosed him as having pulmonary embosis coz his injured leg got blood clots and the blood clot went up to the lung and blocked the main artery which caused him to suffocate. Doctor in A&E said 9 out of 10 can't make it to hospital. Luckily i told him no matter what, must strive on as bb is not yet out, must hang on there till reach hospital to get treatment. Luckily he was out from ICU but risk is still there. You can't imagine the fear I have every nite. I just hope he is safe and sound every morning when i wake up, or i will check on him a few times every nite. Well, doctor said he need about 3-6 months time to be away from the risk. So, pray hard.

Pipi, thanks for the info on the NTUC toyogo plastic rack. I managed to grab one by getting my brother's help. It's now in used to store all the bb products i bought for my little gal.

Sorry to those mummy who want to get the clothes in the previous BP i mentioned. http://www.kidsngifts.blogspot.com/

Pipi, Yufeng, Carol Ong, do you have anything to get from KidsNGifts? I contacted her and she said her BP is up tomoro, so i will post the link here again tomoro when she sends me the link. In fact, I have got the CK sleepsuit last week when i have little time. She said you can contact her directly and she will give discount when you mention you are from Aug 11 thread. Hope you get some good deal as her quality and service is quite good.

Pipi, good that you listen to your mum at least. Exercise wise, can always do something safe like brisk walking etc. Coz hubby in hospital, i didn't go to the last 2 classes of aqua aerobic @ KKH. So wasted, but well, his safely comes first.

I also lose weight due to the stress I going thru, kena warning oredi. So, these few days keep putting food into my mouth, hope to gain back some weight. Pray hard... things will go on well. Take care all, can't join u all in the meetup plan till later date, coz nid an eye on my hubby.

bbdreamy: i read ur post and i can understand ur worry.. pls take care! Hope ur hb recovers asap and gets well soon. things will be fine [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] hugs*

BabyDreamyQueen> Hugz... everything will turn out well ok, do also take good care of yourself & bb. As for the gathering u may join us the nxt round, no worries [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

Changni> i think the abv had posted wrongly lah... I also find it funny, now is not the time for us to slim down... [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif]

Hello Carole,

Can update for me my bbs gender - most likely to be 2 princess... [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] EDD remain the same.

BBdreamy Queen

i'm sorry to hear ur predicament =(

but do stay strong and take care too.

ur hubby will surely get well soon. dun worry too much..


BBdreamy Queen

Hope you are feeling better now. I guess you must have been badly traumatized. Right now, dun worry so much about other stuff, concentrate on taking care of hubby and your bb.

If you can't go out, then order tingkat so that you can keep an eye on your hubby cos it sounds serious. I cannot imagine if you are out of the house and it happens.

Lucky you that you have got some stuff ready for bb. I got none ready..only got 2 beds from Ikea for maid and CL. Wanted to go get the plastic drawers but by the time I finished my antenatal class every sat (2-4pm) my hubby looks tired and sleepy. And he will come home and ZzzzZZ. I am trying to get the plastic drawers this week, hopefully. Anyway Nex NTUC is opened 24 hrs.

My mum just told me to get 2 dozens of baby diaper cloth...not to use as diaper but to use to wrap the bb. She said that's what she do to us when we are young. 1 dozen to put in my house, 1/2 dozen to put in her hse, and 1/2 dozen in in-laws pl. I just agree with her cos I am really not sure, afterall it is my #1.

pipi: can get the plastic drawers from toyogo warehouse in tpy... cheap and lots of stuff there..

but must go weekdays n they close at 6pm.

Yeah, went there the other time(1 mth plus ago) to take a look...quite crowded on weekends. No one free to serve me.

And the bad thing is I got weak bladder, need to find toilet after a while, and the nearest one was the coffee shop behind Toyogo, and its the squat type.

I do recommend those of you with stronger bladder to go Toyogo cos they really sell ALOT of plastic stuff...anything plastic can be found there. And they only do delivery if you purchase SGD 400 and abv.

I actually called NTUC Nex to find out if they do delivery (which they don't) cos if my hubby dun go with me, I don't think I can bring 2 plastic drawers + other stuff back myself. NTUC Nex was v nice, they said that they can ask one of their staff to follow me and help me. I just need to pay for their taxi back, which I dun mind cos it cost less than SGD5. This staff actually told me to call him and let him know when I am going down so that he can arrange a staff to help me...so sweet.

Tks Sus... [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] as advice by doc need bed rest soon so cannot go shopping too often liaoz, was given alot of medication during my last visit to take for the nxt 3 months [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif] anyway it's all worth it for my 2 princess [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

Antenatal Class from KKH

Today, we were taught the exercises which will minimise various aches. I thought the speaker, carol, was pretty good. She actually makes us do it while she check our posture to make sure we do it correctly. So nice of her...

She also told us how to turn ourselves in bed if we start getting sore on one side.(move your body concurrently with bent legs from side to side to prevent strain) And how to get out of the bed safely without straining ourselves.(on your sides, and use your hands to push urself up)

What I didnt know is we can only start doing sit ups, strenuous exercises after 6-8weeks, else you will get backache. *wow*

I like this speaker and I think what she taught us today is helpful.

Haven't heard anyone talking about their antenatal class by TMC/Mrs Boi...wonder how is it? Would be good if someone can xchg some insights.
