Is your cramps regular? If it is, you are likely to be in labour soon. I had mine like every 5mins before I called to ask gynae. She asked me to admit myself into hospital too. dont't wait until your pain escalate bcos sometimes labour may accelerate suddenly.
How's everyone's confinement and first month celebration?
Time flies, my boy is already 7 weeks and able to hold his head up when on his tummy!
My confinement's ending soon and celebration is coming up!
Time really flies..... Feels like will be back to work soon too...
Ya .. Time really flies.. baby is grew so much already. Took her booster jab last week at poly clinic, cry until face so red! For me, now getting used to take care baby leow, and waking up in the middle of night to pump still!
Illuz: pump after feeding at night??
I feel so angry with myself... I just spilled like 10ml of my breast milk..... And my breast milk supply is not a lot. That was like 1/7 of my pump...
dont't stress.. after so long of latching + pumping my supply still on low end.. but I've seen that persistence + being positive helps.. I still need to supplement formula for now but not giving up (:
Jia you all
Hmm.. I dont know if fenugreek really helps? Cos besides latching + pumping every 3 hourly in my first month, I also took fenugreek and drink a lot of water. My supply increase from 20-30ml in the first week to 250ml in 10mins in the forth week. Now over supply I had to reduce my latching and pumping bcos freezer is already full. Feeding mostly with EBM now
Wow illuz - your supply is really good!
yes let's all Jia you together!
Illuz, how much fenugreek do you take?
babytazz: got supply is good but over supply also headache.. I have problems feeding as the milk flow too fast and shoots out. baby chokes on the milk, spit out milk and nipple, get frustrated, and screams! That's why now I feed her mostly with EBM. If latching, I need to pump out some milk first before latching her.
Same I was on lactogreek from gynae.. took two boxes 2 tablets three times a day.. besides that I drink Milo + mother's milk tea and lots of papaya and fish soup and rolled oats.. !
Any mummy tried motillium?

Do you mind sharing with me did any one purchase maternity insurance prior birth? My EDD is in Mid Aug, thinking whether should I be buying the maternity insurance.
I bought the insurance for my son when I was 18 weeks. It's more if a savings plan but the good thing is once baby is born he automatically has health insurance that doesn't require underwriting. So even though it's limited coverage I took it up..
during pregnancy it covers complications..
Hi ajcy, do you mind to share with me which insurance company and what the name of the plan? Thank you
Prudential, pru first gift.
I think aia or ge also has something similar but I went with prudential for my own convenience as my fc is from there.
Thank you so much ajcy
