Meme quizzes, Pregnancy, Uncategorized AN EPIC POST. 2 August 2010


A freakin’ epic video blog, if I do say so myself πŸ˜›


(link for China visitors)

A very happy announcement πŸ™‚ They say a picture says a thousand words. I figured, a video will say a thousand pictures πŸ˜‰

The video got flattened when I saved it, hence why I look a bit squashed/weird – sorry!

          • exhileration posted on August 3, 2010 at 1:24 am

            Can’t wait to hear what you guys are having!

            We booked our Shanghai hotel today πŸ™‚ Doing the Shanghai Hilton…I think that’s its name. My bf got a corporate code through work. It was that or something called Longemont. The Howard Johnsons you recommended were really nice but too $$$ πŸ™ We’ll be there Sept 15-18 πŸ™‚

          • beverly posted on August 3, 2010 at 2:58 am

            Oh nice!! Though I thought HJ hotel would be cheaper than Hilton.. can’t believe it’s not eek.
            You’ll have fun here and in Sep the weather is soooo much better

          • exhileration posted on August 4, 2010 at 12:44 am

            It’s like 910 CNY/night which my boyfriend says is someone’s monthly salary. He wanted to do a Chinese hotel but I am kind of off those since the one we stayed at with our summer abroad program in Beijing was super sketchy.

            lol would be so random but so cool to run into you in Shanghai! Though there are gazillions of people!

          • beverly posted on August 4, 2010 at 3:13 pm

            Nooo the Shanghainese here would earn at least 7k/month RMB or so… at least the office workers too! I’d be a bit worried about the totally Chinese hotels too…. the more $$ would be ok I think though, but you’d at least want to hear great reviews online first. Oh, and just beware, the beds are mega hard!!

      A lot of people keep telling me I’m lucky to not get nausea, and I know it’s true, but it also made me quite nervous for WEEKS, cos I always thought something was wrong as I didn’t feel pregnant! At least now I know it’s all ok πŸ™‚

    When you got up to show your tummy I thought for a moment that you gonna flash. Hahahaha. That would be epic. BTW do you plan to have a pregnant photosession aka Demi Moore later on?

    • crackerchris posted on August 2, 2010 at 3:03 pm

      For our friends that we want to be pregnant as well, I’m thinking about a ritual much like those you have at the wedding. Instead of a bride tossing the bouquet, it’d be the new mother tossing… actually, forget that thought.

    You have a charming accent, btw. Not thick Aussie – just a shmear of Aussie.

    OMG! Major congrats! I must be super slow because I don’t suspect a thing πŸ˜› I thought it might be a promotion or something ? LOL maybe because I ‘think’ I have the impression the baby stage will come when you guys move to Singapore later on…

    It’s very exciting indeed and I really feel very happy for you. It’s like while I only know you online, but I was here to see you graduate, found your first job, got married, went for your honeymoon and now you are gonna be a mama! It’s so nice to see you creating amazing milestones in life. πŸ˜€

    Can we now have the “guess the gender” bet ? πŸ˜›

            Can’t wait to hear what you guys are having!

            We booked our Shanghai hotel today πŸ™‚ Doing the Shanghai Hilton…I think that’s its name. My bf got a corporate code through work. It was that or something called Longemont. The Howard Johnsons you recommended were really nice but too $$$ πŸ™ We’ll be there Sept 15-18 πŸ™‚

          • beverly posted on August 3, 2010 at 2:58 am

            Oh nice!! Though I thought HJ hotel would be cheaper than Hilton.. can’t believe it’s not eek.
            You’ll have fun here and in Sep the weather is soooo much better

          • exhileration posted on August 4, 2010 at 12:44 am

            It’s like 910 CNY/night which my boyfriend says is someone’s monthly salary. He wanted to do a Chinese hotel but I am kind of off those since the one we stayed at with our summer abroad program in Beijing was super sketchy.

            lol would be so random but so cool to run into you in Shanghai! Though there are gazillions of people!

          • beverly posted on August 4, 2010 at 3:13 pm

            Nooo the Shanghainese here would earn at least 7k/month RMB or so… at least the office workers too! I’d be a bit worried about the totally Chinese hotels too…. the more $$ would be ok I think though, but you’d at least want to hear great reviews online first. Oh, and just beware, the beds are mega hard!!

    Whew! I breathed a sigh of relief towards the end of yr video when you said that you were seeing a German lady doctor at Parkway Medical in Shanghai. I keep thinking that those China hospitals & China doctors & nurses are not as professional as those Western trained ones. The state of their China hospitals is also very questionable as China doctors depend on under the table commissions from patients to get things moving.

    Good choice on a private western hospital & doctor!

    All the best & don’t stress yourself out!

    • crackerchris posted on August 3, 2010 at 1:50 am

      Re: Congrats!

      It’s actually a very interesting point – China, as you can imagine, are *really* good at delivering babies. Some hospitals will do hundreds/month. But you’re right in that a little money helps if you’re an expat.

      From what I’ve read/heard the service is still very professional, and clean. Come hell or high-water, they’ll do everything they can to get the baby out safely and healthily. BUT, from what I’ve heard they don’t focus on things like primary care, or giving you that unique special feeling. From what I’ve read/heard it’s all very mechanical, quick, and efficient. So they won’t tell you the sex of the baby, the C-section rates are much higher (60%), the father’s not allowed in the consultations or delivery room, and if you need neonatal care, the baby gets carted off to a big room full of other critical babies. So if you want to know the sex, you’ll have to negotiate with your ultrasound technician. If you want the father there, you’ll have to pay much more. If you want to see your baby more, there’s likely some way to negotiate with the nurses.

      For other expats in China, there are also other mid-range options. China-run VIP clinics catered to expats. They’re similar to the China public option, just with a little more flexibility, and some broken English.

      Obviously we just went with the expat clinic. They cost about 10x-100x more, but it’s worth it for us.

        Re: Congrats!

        Ya a lot of people were shocked and nervous when we told them we’re having the baby in China – they immediately assume I’ll give birth in a dirty roadside hospital or something. Little do they know Shanghai is incredibly advanced now and especially in the Western clinics, it’s really top notch (unfortunately 10x more expensive than hospitals in Western countries).

        But we had no choice but to go Western, cos of our lack of Chinese skills! πŸ˜›

    OMG!! Congratulations! A baby will be amazing, it will change your life entirely but for the better. Just make sure you catch up on your sleep now because after the baby is born, you’ll have none! I have 3 year old and its only been recently that I’m getting more sleep. Can’t wait for all your baby posts πŸ™‚

    Congrats! Do you think you would lean more towards a boy or girl? I know you will love to death whichever way it goes, and I know you probably want to say “I just want a healthy baby” but, really… come on…! One that you have a preference over just a LITTLE bit?

    Reply
    • beverly posted on August 3, 2010 at 1:54 pm

      Err that’s not an easy question to try and force an answer out of, as we want both equally. Don’t really care at all, just want both or either one! Perhaps it’s only when you’re pregnant you truly feel that a healthy baby is the top priority and something as silly as the gender doesn’t even come on the radar

    Whew! I breathed a sigh of relief towards the end of yr video when you said that you were seeing a German lady doctor at Parkway Medical in Shanghai. I keep thinking that those China hospitals & China doctors & nurses are not as professional as those Western trained ones. The state of their China hospitals is also very questionable as China doctors depend on under the table commissions from patients to get things moving.

    Good choice on a private western hospital & doctor!

    All the best & don’t stress yourself out!

      Re: Congrats!

      It’s actually a very interesting point – China, as you can imagine, are *really* good at delivering babies. Some hospitals will do hundreds/month. But you’re right in that a little money helps if you’re an expat.

      From what I’ve read/heard the service is still very professional, and clean. Come hell or high-water, they’ll do everything they can to get the baby out safely and healthily. BUT, from what I’ve heard they don’t focus on things like primary care, or giving you that unique special feeling. From what I’ve read/heard it’s all very mechanical, quick, and efficient. So they won’t tell you the sex of the baby, the C-section rates are much higher (60%), the father’s not allowed in the consultations or delivery room, and if you need neonatal care, the baby gets carted off to a big room full of other critical babies. So if you want to know the sex, you’ll have to negotiate with your ultrasound technician. If you want the father there, you’ll have to pay much more. If you want to see your baby more, there’s likely some way to negotiate with the nurses.

      For other expats in China, there are also other mid-range options. China-run VIP clinics catered to expats. They’re similar to the China public option, just with a little more flexibility, and some broken English.

      Obviously we just went with the expat clinic. They cost about 10x-100x more, but it’s worth it for us.

        Re: Congrats!

        Ya a lot of people were shocked and nervous when we told them we’re having the baby in China – they immediately assume I’ll give birth in a dirty roadside hospital or something. Little do they know Shanghai is incredibly advanced now and especially in the Western clinics, it’s really top notch (unfortunately 10x more expensive than hospitals in Western countries).

        But we had no choice but to go Western, cos of our lack of Chinese skills! πŸ˜›

        We definitely want more kids. No fixed plans about when yet though! You can join the Singapore Motherhood forum. There should be a thread for those due in the same month as you. Quite fun to ‘go through’ the process with others, esp for the 1st child.

        In the meantime, sleep as much as you can. And oh, do all the baby shopping in the 2nd trimester! Some women get too tired by the 3rd.

    was this planned? i got the impression you weren’t gonna have kids till u moved back to sg.

      Yeah… no to a LOT of food in Europe, doh!! Ah well…

      It was half-planned, as in, ended up being almost a year earlier than we thought I’d fall pregnant, haha

    Congrats! Do you think you would lean more towards a boy or girl? I know you will love to death whichever way it goes, and I know you probably want to say “I just want a healthy baby” but, really… come on…! One that you have a preference over just a LITTLE bit?

    Reply
    • beverly posted on August 3, 2010 at 1:54 pm

      Err that’s not an easy question to try and force an answer out of, as we want both equally. Don’t really care at all, just want both or either one! Perhaps it’s only when you’re pregnant you truly feel that a healthy baby is the top priority and something as silly as the gender doesn’t even come on the radar

      Reply
      • budding_corsage posted on August 3, 2010 at 3:43 pm

        yes rather recently πŸ™‚ And rem I wrote sometime back to ask you as well? But I can’t recall when that was. haha. (may be an excuse but pregnancy + being a mother make me forgetful!)

        We definitely want more kids. No fixed plans about when yet though! You can join the Singapore Motherhood forum. There should be a thread for those due in the same month as you. Quite fun to ‘go through’ the process with others, esp for the 1st child.

        In the meantime, sleep as much as you can. And oh, do all the baby shopping in the 2nd trimester! Some women get too tired by the 3rd.

        Take good care :)))
