Iselle, like Jacquise, I also eat everything, in moderation. I do try to avoid soft boil eggs and liver though. Otherwise, crabs, prawns, sashimi, all eat! ehhehe

Beef hor fun with eggy gravy is my current favourite....hehe.

I think I'll wait a few days see if doc's clinic calls me up regarding my result....hopefully all ok.

Jac, the thing is... I've no appetite!! But ur sashimi sounds good thou. Hee.. N I juz tot of fried oyster cake n char kway teow. Hmm.. Maybe fri I can go for supper. Any other food suggestions??

Good idea to video insecret! Ill ask hubby try next scan!
Iselle, sashimi is gd mah... Got omega 3! Kekekeke. Just eat what u feel like eating. Ya eat in moderation. This time i nauseous also can eat. Hokkien mee? Tze char? Indian Rojak? Laksa? Mee soto? Kueh pie tie? Nonya zhang? Chicken rice? Kimchi soup? Katsu don? Putumayam? See so many things to eat! Indulge!!!!! :D
i dunno read from where this TCM website say preg women shld eat "Liang" things now as we are heaty. Then deliver Liao then drink heaty stuff as our body is "Liang". Confused la.o_Oo_Oo_O

But I'm the chin chye type, confinemt broke all rules, even went out shopping n Kena Chased home by Isetan aunty. Went straight to salon after hosp to wash n cut hair, bathe everyday, spaghetti as a confinement meal, bathed my baby myself everyday from day1! But I was young then. This time I decided I better get a CL and do properly. I was so sleep deprived. Suicidal and depressing. :p

u are right jacquise. i heard before too that now pregnant we are like a pot of hot water. once delivered we are a pot of very cold water. but i think for now still moderation la. too liang food also no good. too heaty also no good. my #1 pregnancy i had preterm contractions and my tcm said cuz i ate too heaty.

i want to eat sashimi!! i keep craving for tuna toast bread. if not no appetite. die

jacquise - wow sashimi?!?! isn't it a no no? cos it's raw? and from what I read from websites in hongkong, UK, US all say too much fish is not good, so perhaps those who hate fish now is a blessing in disguise?

lefaithful - I think if you eat too much liang things will cause contractions right? that's y must avoid pineapples, watermelon and stuff like that..

I also eat lots of peanut.. since nobody in both family got such allergies, I didn't care. but I avoid fish, soft cheese, raw vege (unless I wash it myself), or anything raw or not fully cooked.. I eat loads of beef.. but it's so sad that I can't indulge in steak cos I like my steak medium rare..

bubbles - I also get a lot of migraines.. at least once a week. I always just bear with it cos I don't dare to take any medications. but I just checked with my gynae on Monday and she said it's ok to take panadol so I take the normal panadol at minimal dosage.

lucky my sinus nv act up anymore since my pregnancy else I will die from not being able to eat any medications..

wan, my case was too heaty. cuz my mom added pao shen into bird nest. gynae said can eat sashimi! and half boiled egg!
 

wan~

Member
lefaithful, can eat half boil egg?!?! that's like one of my fav breakfast food which I stop eating for some time already cos not fully cooked. hmmm my gynae normally everything also say ok can, but when I read on websites then im not sure if I should just ignore what I read and listen to my gynae..also, someone commented bird nest now is not good for 1st tri right, cos baby might get asthma? I still have a bit left also with pao shen but I don't dare to take already.
 

jacquise

Member
I asked my Gynae he say can eat sashimi. It muz be v fresh. I ate biz lunch that day. One slice of tuna belly $20. So I was like I must indulge. Sure fresh. :p Then another time biz dinner at Morton's but I dare not eat the medium rare steak. Just eat if you r comfortable. If not no point eat Liao then worry all the way. He also said OTC hair color is ok... I'll color when second trimester starts. Found a few brands no ammonia or PPD. More ex though.
 

wan~

Member
oh... yeah one slice $20 sure must be very good.. hahaha.. so you didn't eat medium rare, you ate medium well?
 

iselle

Member
Wow jac, no wonder u can name so many gd food. Morton steak n tuna belly, u r a gourmet!

Wan, I hope ur sinus continues to stay away! My gynae Oso everything say can eat. Coffee can, but dun exceed oneself a day. Sashimi can, but from reputable restaurants. Actually some websites will state clearly dun take too much, not abstain totally but some juz name the food n we tot we shd totally avoid.

Half boil egg is new to me. I Oso tot hv to abstain. I heard on radio past mths advertising pasteurized raw egg. Maybe safer to use tat to make half boil egg if MTb has cravings.
 

wan~

Member
luckily I don't drink coffee, so I just avoid all caffeinated drinks. to me is still a small thing to avoid. guess I will go for some sashimi once I hit 2nd tri, by then at least more stable.
pasteurized raw egg? what brands sell that? normally I go Ya Kun for my soft boil egg cravings, so if like that means gotta make my own. and also, anybody knows if egg benedicts are fine? I always have craving for all day breakfasts..
 

cute_gal

Member
iselle, u too must tke care...im praying all our MS be gone by 2nd tri.

can't eat half boil egg is cos if not fully cook, the egg might still contain some bacteria, actually sashimi is a no no too but think if eat moderate shld be ok...lol cos i must put uncooked egg in porridge, this way the porridge will be more smooth n nicer to eat...hehehe
 

wan~

Member
sunshinebb, if you put uncooked egg in porridge, it becomes cooked right? cos egg cooks rather quickly so that's still safe.

all the best for those who have MS.. just a couple more weeks at most and your MS should disappear. :)

the other day i was at ippudo, super love their egg, took one big bite and my gf saw the yolk flowing out, she gave me the death stare and asked me to stop eating :(

cute_gal

Member
wan, ya the egg will be almost cook but sometimes still will see the uncooked white so i just remove it....i love egg :) this topic about foods make me feel so excited though i still don't have much appetite. i remember during #1 macdonal got promo buy 1 fillet o fish free 1 more and the scary part i can eat each burger in less than 10min...lol

morning mummies! it's august! another month closer to seeing our lil ones in our arms.

i am almost at the end of my 1st trimester already (if i use 13 weeks instead of 12 as a gauge). MS is considerably better though sometimes i still got the whole bloatedness n nausea at night.

fingers crossed all will be gone when i go for my babymoon next week.

Yeah... But mine is getting worst. I puke every night and which I dont use to do that... =(

Where will you be heading to?
 

cheeryz

Member
ya peanut will cos baby develops a peanut allergy but need to depend on family history too.

Last night watched Channel 8. They talked about allergy. In fact, what we eat will not cause the bb to have allegery or asthma. It's actually caused by the mummy's digestive system or the baby's. I will try to find the program from Xin MSN to share....

Member
lefaithful - you are funny! the egg is cooked by the time it reaches our stomach.. hahah..
vee - you should try ramen at millennia walk parco 3rd floor called nantsuttei much better than ippudo
sunshinebb - hahah don't worry by 2nd tri should be better right? im quite lucky cos got no MS so everyday eat as per normal..
crystall - enjoy your babymoon! im gg for mine in sep.. such a long way away.. can't wait. :p
cheeryz - that's good to hear that our food intake doesn't cause baby to have allergies or asthma
 
im envious of whoever gets to go babymoon!!!

sunshinebb, mine also junkie bb. i eat more rubbish than first pregnancy

Aiyo jac u reali full of food ideas leh! made me n cherryz crave same.
Ngor hiang no brand, from cold storage those fresh meat section. I discovered it while buying minced beef for my gal. U buy a few n if steam doesn't satisfy ur cravings then u fried a roll. 1 shd be ok rite?

Lala, pizza so early not too rich? Now aug le, u rec ur confirmation letter? Ur boss started interviewing new ppl?

iselle - nope I used to work at suntec so knew about the millennia walk ramen.. now working at tanjong pagar and also love this ramen at orchid hotel here.. :p I love ramen..!
jacquise - 3 weeks? you mean from your previous doc visit till the recent one? so far I put on 1.2kg in total from beginning till now, not sure if it's ok.. I hope I don't put on too much till I can't lose the weight after giving birth. my mum is like super petite after she had me. but now after my bro, she's like perpetually 9 mths preggie.. :p

As for letting the world know, I also told my colleagues cos I had to travel but I didn't want to, so gotta tell some of them why I can't travel. and my lunch kakis know so sometimes I can just sit down and not q in the hot humid hawker centre. Close friends know from the start and some relatives also know already
But I will only really announce to the whole world after I have done my 12 weeks scan and all is normal which will then be past 1st trimester. My mum super pantang so forbid me to post any baby related stuff on facebook.. esp since she trolls facebook, all the more I must be careful. hahaha

Hi Wan, actually everything should be cooked properly. Sashimi really not so good during 1st Trimester as baby is still developing. The worry is Salmonella in raw food, like uncooked egg, fish and shell fish. Otherwise, the only kind of fish we should avoid is Mackeral, Sword fish, shark....e.g. in US...they say:-

Mercury Levels in Fish: Highest Mercury
AVOID Eating

  • Marlin
  • Orange roughy
  • Tilefish
  • Swordfish
  • Shark
  • Mackerel (king)
  • Tuna ( bigeye, Ahi)
High Mercury
Eat no more than three 6-oz servings per month

  • Sea Bass (Chilean)
  • Bluefish
  • Grouper
  • Mackeral ( Spanish, Gulf)
  • Tuna (canned, white albacore) See tuna chart below
  • Tuna ( Yellowfin)
and more.....

But each country is different and it depends on where the fish is imported or fished locally. So local waters containing levels of mercury affects local fish etc. So basically if you avoid the fish with HIGHEST MERCURY levels, and eat in moderation the rest, it should be quite ok......SALMON is basically very safe, especially if fully cooked, it's very healthy, full of OMEGA-3.

hi all. Just finished my NT scan at NUH. Doc said everything looks normal but still have to wait for blood test result to confirm. Counter staff said Mon after 2pm can call gynae to check. At least half a load off my mind. Now will wait anxiously for mon to come faster.
