Yes I'm still in denial.......I'm at 16 weeks today. I just rang up to make an appointment with my osteopath and said 'better just let you know I'm 4 months pregnant' came off the phone with a big grin on my face and said, oh my god Im 4 months pregnant' to my husband! I still can't quite believe it...

thanks Libby I understand some people are superstitious especially with different cultures and I respect that but I have never heard anything as extreme as this. I find it insulting that she thinks I have a negative effect on her baby. Her baby got sick at a time I wasn't seeing her anyway. And she ...

thanks Caroline and Yasmina I still believe it is unkind what she is doing. We have been friends since the age of 4 and she has seldom followed her culture so religiously. I know her grandparents are pressuring her about this and I understand thats stressful for her. However, in her shoes I would pu...

Thanks Chel and Yasmina Many people have told me now the same thing. So clearly its certainly not a big part of the chinese culture...........since she is very westernised, it makes it worse that she chose to follow this one thing. she did stay in after the birth and didn't wash her hair but apart f...

thanks so much for your message Yasmina. This friend has let me down before this so maybe its time to call it a day with her. I think it is saying more about her personality than the Chinese culture.

thanks again, you have really helped.
Love Terri
P.S congratulations to you too!

Hi Walsh you are not overeacting because theres no such thing after what us lot have been through..........we panick at everything! I used to panick if my boobs weren't sore for a day! But I think it sounds like you will be okay. Many women get spotting for months. My sister had it for ages too with...

pregnancy and Chinese culture

I just wondered if anyone could shed some light on this...................... My chinese friend had a baby in April and a few weeks ago, she announced that her grandparents told her that I was not allowed to hold the baby as I am pregnant. Apparently I will unsettle the baby for a few days as I am p...

My midwife said something like this........'your uterus is moving fowards now and the fallopian tubes and ovaries are trying to stay where the...

I do take sachets of natural iron supplements I got from the health shop though as I'm hoping it might increase my energy.......I'm so tire...

you sound like you have the perfect dog to be around children! I don't think you have much to worry about!

I'm going to ramble again................ since you have asked about your dog Madiva, I'll add a bit more. When you arrive home with the baby, introduce the baby to your dog as soon as possible and praise her for being good (as long as she is). if she does the wrong thing, like jumps up or gets over...
