hi celia

thanks for your reply ! i do in my office during lunch hours..some ppl tell me cannot do sewing cos baby come out will hv a scar or something... omg so scary ! my mil also say cannot sew..
 
haha porky

Sure can sew, else who will do that for the next 9 months? No using of scissors means we cant trim our hair or cut the vegs too? hehee...

I asked the elders - they all say dun do in the bedroom, especially on the bed. As for drilling, nailing stuff, also cannot do in our presence. Sigh, so superstitious...

im 2nd time mummy hehe. my #1 is a boy now 3yrs old alrdy ! nice to "know" u online
for my #1 everything i dont dare to do..but now 2nd time not so scare hahaha
 
My dr is from GlenE so I think I will go there. I think Mount A is better, more choices of rooms and my dr can go there too. But my experienced gf tells me better choose same place where the dr's clinic is, so he can pop by see you easily during the labour. But this only applies if it's during weekday daytime ya.

What do you think?
 
I am not pantang, so I did some sewing while I was pregnant. Did it on my bed in my bedroom somemore.

My baby came out okay, no scar on any part of her body.

I think all these are just old wives' tales

Hi Porky, i think you can sew as long as you are not doing it on your bed. For my first pregnancy, i took a scissor to cut some hampers and once i put down the scissor, i bled! A LOT! but very lucky baby was ok and she is 20mths now
So i kept all scissor for the whole of my pregnancy..

advise is not to do anything on the bed.. and any knocking nailing general things ask hubby to do it when u are not ard.. it's totally nonsense not use scissors or do any sewing during pregnancy.. what about those mommies who are hairdressers?? haha.. i once asked my hairdresser that den she told me "if cant use scissors what baby and me eat?"

As a Blogshop owner, I used the scissors all the time and even on the bed as back aches are getting to me now as I'm 29 weeks pregnant. But detailed scan of my baby girl didnt show any cleft lips etc. and she's healthy! Just small for her size. Cause so far even though I'm 29 weeks and in trimester 3, she only weighs 1.2kg.

But other than that, no gestational diabetes, cleft lips etc. So it's more like a superstition

Hi, I am 25wks pregnant and intend to install new curtain for my house...can I ask ppl do it without my presence?

It's just a myth and superstition. I banged things around the house, sewed, handled knives etc when I was pregnant with #1. She's not an easily startled baby, nor does she have any scars etiher.

The most important thing is to be careful not to get hurt yourself cos preggies tend to be a bit clumsy.
