hi mummies....i am the one who started tis thread but 'disappeared' cos was having very bad morning sickness and heartburn thruout the whole 9mths.
i have delivered my dearest dotter thru natural birth last sat...all is good for me and her but i guess i am having some blues now....hopefully all will be good soon.
Congrats to all mummies who have delivered!
went for my check up yesterday and it seems my cervix is not open yet. Gynae told me to do more squats to try to open up my pelvic bones. Haha. Baby is now 3kg.
So exciting yet nerve wrecking for a first time mum like me. All the birth stories are making me very excited. Haha...
My maternity leave officially starts next week. But I took 1 week annual leave for this week. Might as well clear the leave if not will get forfeited at year end.
Waiting game continues...
Jia you mrsxu, do text here if you need a lending ear... it's not easy to handle new born... I was rather blue last time taking care of my #1 when she was new born... not sure if I will agian for #2...
Oh no piglim, hope your son recover soon. My gal also keep falling sick after going to cc... thn kerp passing the virus to my mum, my sis, hubby n myself. .. virus there seems very strong.
thanks meltie & tannie for the encouragements.
i am wishing that CL goes away soon but also worry i carn cope haha, not easy to have stranger around n taking over my kitchen.
PLUS visitors who keep coming....
Oh dear Piglim.. Hope yr boy gets well soon.. Gg childcare is more prone to virus .. Bo bian.. I also dread the day wen the time comes for me to put my girl in childcare..
Hugs Mrsxu! I just saw your other thread.. it's e hormones! Cheer up ok! Wen I had my #1, I also experienced something similar.. wen the CL took my girl into the rm to sleep at night, I cried buckets cos I felt my baby was taken away from me.. haha.. a bit silly now thinking back.. and then later cos CL is after all a stranger.. and im not used to having things not done my way.. so I was rather unhappy for a while.. I came here and vent all my frustrations.. fellow mummies from the sept 12 thread would have remembered it.. haha.. so just come here and complain! Smetimes having a listening ear helps a lot.. and if you are uncomfy about having so many visitors, maybe tok to your hubby and ask him to tell well meaning visitors to wait for baby shower as you need to rest? Im sure they will understd.. Jia you!
Just back from gynae.. Luckily my boy never grow too much so gynae say she ok to wait another wk till edd.. She says baby will definitely be > 3.5kg next wk so she will definitely induce wen I go for my next appt on edd and told me to bring my hospital bag along.. she checked cervix and im 1.5cm dilated oredi.. so she says got a bit of chance baby will come out this wkend.. I hope so!
I'll rather have waiting game at home coz I'm really busy at work plus my puppps rash, I dont think I can make it another day at work. Imagine having to meet people but you are itching like mad and trying hard not to fidget. Also, the rash is making me lose sleep at night and its a struggle to get up and go work. In the end I gave up and went to see a derm for more steroids. Sigh...
i really hope the steroids dont affect my baby. Even though I'm at home, I brought some admin work home to do to try to clear as much as possible before I pop.
i really hope I have some dilation by this sat. dont really wanna be induced. Praying hard.
Congrats on your pregnancy and hope everything is going on well.

mayb can consider starting ml earlier? i was too tired at work so i applied for ml a month before edd. however must make sure got enuf food at hm.
I am hoping gynae give me mc for tomorrow thn I dont have to go back to work... starting ml on 2nd may... really too tired to go back to work.
Oh.. I dont want to sacrifice my 16wks ml with baby.. so I told my boss I will take leave from mon till I deliver.. got too much annual leave to clear anyway.. I prefer waiting game at home.. more relax.. can take a walk, take a nap and do sme last min chores.. or just nua around.. haha.. I left my #1 with the nanny cos I dont want to run after her all day..
Hi shanice, it's a rash that usually comes during 3rd trimester n it's very very itchy. Usually starts at the tummy where the stretch marks are and will spread like wildfire to everywhere else. Mine started at 34 weeks and it just spread to my arms, thighs, hands, fingers and feet. I was given steroid creams and oral steroids and the rash calmed down a lot. Then it came back again at 37 weeks n I'm given oral n cream steroids again. I'm really worried about the amount of steroids that I'm taking n applying but the itch is really a killer. The weather just makes it worse.
But I agree waiting game at work do make time pass faster. Haha.. But it's more relaxing at home n I can just flip my shirt up n let the fan n air con blow at my tummy direct. Shiok!! Haha.. I also got a lot of annual leave to clear just like lingz. Haha.. So might as well.
Second time mummies, can you share how long it took for the wound from natural birth to heal and stop hurting? Do you have to go back to the hospital to remove the stitches? I am feeling jittery and nervous as a first time mummy. I hope the pain from the wound will be bearable. Will you able to sit comfortably on a chair or it hurts when you sit down? Any tips on how to prevent constipation? I fear it may tear the wound.
usually the wound will take about 1 or 2 weeks to heal and you will feel discomfort when sitting and going to the toilet... the stitch will drop by itself so no need to worry about removal... after giving birth usually doctor will prescribe medication to soften the stools...
Shanice it's worse than heat rash I feel. I guess baby won't feel cold coz she's inside of me n has my body temp to keep her warm. Haha. And one thing about this rash is, it will spread. Spreads quite fast some more. Air con helps keep the itch away. So now I'm stuck between wanting to go out for walks to help open up my cervix n staying in my room with air con on. Haha...
Oh I had that rash for my first pregnancy.. I totally understd e discomfort.. it itch so bad that at night I woke up cos I scratched myself so bad unknowingly that it hurts and bleed .. very jialat.. thankfully, history did not repeat itself this time round.. tummy is still itchy but I tink prob cos the skin is stretched too tight .. at least it's bearable..
Oh yeah.. so hot nowadays even with the aircon on.. smetimes I woke up in the morning to find that my shirt is flipped up revealing my tummy.. tink baby also very hot.. haha..
