    Hi Rani

    Thanks for the tip. So beauty products during pregnancy don't have much effect? She will be very pleased to hear that :D

    Dave, congrats! though you may want to let her know that some skincare and bodycare products that contain certain aroma/essential oils are not recommended during pregnancy. I stopped using a herbal shampoo that has it from L'Ocittaine as the shop assistant there told me not to use. Makeups are fine. Don't forget the stretch mark control cream/oil if she hasn't started using yet :)

    Hey everyone here, CONGRATULATIONS!
    A year ago today, we found out we were pregnant. We felt much like you people.
    Don't worry. I found that HK is a wonderful place to deliver a baby!
    We went to QMH. My wife and my daughter stayed for 4 days. It cost me HK$ 600,-

    They really took good care of us.
    Their can be some nurses however that are nasty. But that's minor.
    One downside is that when your wife goes into labour, she needs to be in the admission ward.
    Husbands cannot join her there.
    She can only go to the labour ward (which is a private room) when she's dilated 3cm. So make sure you go to the hospital as late as possible, to keep the admission ward time as short as you can.
    It's not cool to sit in the hallway for 6 hours!
    And it's not cool for the women to be by themselves through that time.
    The rest was awesome.

    Tips: watch Nat Geo In The Womb. I loved it.
    Find and study Dunstan's baby language. Spot on with my girl.
    Watch: What to expect when you're expecting. Cuz it's fun!

    Ow. About the skincare..

    My wife used coconut almond butter to prevent from stretchmarks.
    Didn't help.
    It's expensive stuff that's supposed to be good for the skin. But it's still nice to put on, smells great!

    Thanks EYM.

    We were told that our skin doesn't absorb most of the make up or beauty products that she uses. My wife has opted for less make up and beauty products whenever necessary. Though her eczema is not too good. We have also heard about coconut oil and luckily she has already bought cream for her stretch marks but has not used it yet. Thanks anyway for the advice.
