feeling sooooo super miserable. Though i got to admit this time round my ms is much better than #1, but the constant queasiness, giddiness and heartburn is really making me very terrible. To make things worse, #1 is teething now and she wakes up crying almost every hr for 3 consecutive nites. Arrggghhhh..... such a difficult time now! :`(
DHM, rest more and stop thinking of cooking and housework.. Shoo shoo, go to bed! Your body is working triply hard, so get triple the rest!
Glad, I feel you sister! My boy is a nightmare when teething, even when not teething he wakes up every 2-3 hours.. When teething, I macham don't get to sleep at all, the moment I fall asleep, he's screaming again.
I have a friend working high up that says longer ML is one of the possibilities in the pipeline, could be up to a year (4 months full pay, 8 months half pay), but of course serious implications, so still works in progress.. Don't expect it to happen in time for our Feb babies.
I actually hope they extend Paternity leave... 3 days is PATHETIC.
Re; Jamu massage
i want to comment on Jamu massage. It is not only helful for shaping mummies back but most importantly, it can help to push clots out from ur womb, which wld otherwise caused bad cramps for future mensa and/or reduce breastmilk.
Hmm.. i would hope for more affordable housing, education/child care fees and more subsidy in medical area - be it for general health, chronic diseases or fertility issues.. overall, lower costs of living.. our costs of living quite high..
and of course, more 'protection(s)'for employers of foreign domestic worker..
More baby bonus will be gd. Childcare n medical all not cheap. Those carrying #1, be prepared to pay n pay in e days to come. The vaccinations itself will burn a big hole in pocket, not forgetting insurance.
Insurance must buy hor, saved our lives when my girl hospitalised twice in e first yr of her life.
Ying, I will be staring at every other preggy woman w a lil boy in my neighbourhood n wondering if it is u.
Welyn I will look at e website later. Tks.
Kimberly, I 'fainting' every other day. Dunno if can arrange to get fr u? Is it liquid form? Nice to drink?
Today is a v bad day for me. Vomit, hungry now, dunno wat to eat.
I aso think that i put on weight.. i dun dare to weigh.. my tummy so big now whn i only 6wks.. & my butts n thighs like bloated up as well.. dunno is it jz bloat & gas or water retention as well..
wow so fast started to look at breastpump. which one did u use for #1? i used ameda for #1. regretted cos i heard medela PISA is more powerful so this time round gonna get medela PISA. ya, from USA cheaper. some oversea spree stopped taking order cos some website very strict, do not allowed international shipping so as not to affect local medela. i will prob ask colleague to get me USA medela when she go there end of year
When pregnant with eldest, I was more or less the same as before. This time ard, it's extreme hunger, extreme fatigue and extreme weight gain (4kg extra at 7 weeks). Like trying to "pay back" for eldest. Haha! But I'm afraid about having problem going back to pre-pregnancy figure if this goes on.
How high is the failure rate of meds given to "strengthen" a pregnancy? The spotting and pain happened again on day 2 of taking meds but more severe. Can't say don't have enough rest bcos i'm "zombified" by the fatigue and spend most of the time in bed daily. Appetite has also decreased since the 1st "episode". Any advice?
