Melancholy.. I just feel very bloated wen I had too full a meal.. then will want to puke after that..

hi elsalisa, wen I asked my gynae earlier, she says it's better to sleep on e side but not to worry if you end up sleeping on your back in e middle of the night.. and she told me sleeping on e side doesnt mean lying perpendicular to the bed if you know what I mean.. she says if it's really uncomfy, just put a pillow or bolster behind your back so you will still sleep at an angle instead of flat on your back.. that's what I have been doing now.. earlier wen I sleep 90° on my side, my arms always get numbed and I got very bad backaches.. now that I sleep with a pillow behind my back, im at about 45° on my side, I feel more comfy.. though smetimes wen I wake im still flat on my back.. hahahaha..Originally Posted by elsalisa:845480

Lingz12 ya i had the same feeling too!!
Yes.. I start to have tailbone and rib cage pain since 16 weeks. And I pant when I walk too fast or climb the stairs.. and I like to sleep with lying on my back too! Should be ok ..
Me too!! Last evening been sneezing real hard n now my rib cage pain.. sobs.. i got to take medi to stop sneezing else really dont knw what will happen..
Me too, I will feel bloated when I'm ate too full. My tailbone ache if I lying flat, I got no choice to sleep on my side. I will put a pillow behind to support my back.
Sorry to ask but where exactly is the tailbone?
Melancholy, is at the bottom of the spine
Mummies.. i've been bz searching for faucets, appliances for my new house.. everyday also monitor reno etc.. haha couldn't keep up w the posts!
ya i have tailbone pain since few weeks ago.. super painful.. esp when i want to situp from lying position.. took me about 15mins with excruciating pain to do it.. :/ And i can't open my legs to get on the bed.. same for shifting on my butt.. the pain radiates between the butt.. even simple walking movements also causes pain at the butt... i guess my baby is pressing on the nerve.. bearing with it.. worse is when i get my sneezing episodes.. every sneeze is an explosion n pressing on my spine.. same for my bladder.. pee leaks.. sigh had to take medicine.. was super painful2 days ago that i took panadol just to walk..
Hmm i'm down with runny nose/blocked nose again.. seems to happen every few days.. immunity realy low.. maybe is the aircon i sleep every night.. baby will be sweating beside me, i cover blanket still cold.. end up i wake up w blocked nose and sneezing episodes.. hate to be sick...
My 14mth old is getting fussier and more demanding.. yells at me all day.. sighh demands to be carried and twists around like mad... hubby also cannot handle... my tailbone so painful, some days i can't support her weight properly.. or i get super aches after carrying her.. she only 8.2kg i already buay tahan.. :/ hope i can tahan through my pregnancy..
These days i feel baby's movements more.. its like something fluttering inside, or a thud here n there.. like something just nudge you on the inside.. Sometimes when i'm on my side, baby will shift down and kick me at my pelvic bone.. Hmm i think it will get more n more obvious as the days go by! I also feel better to lie on my back sometimes coz i can put my legs up in sit-up position and release some pressure on my spine... wah my tummy has been growing by leaps and bounds! I think i sort of scare ppl suddenly look so pregnant.. boobs swell and tummy ballooning.. guess i won't be able to fit into my clothes very soon.. lazy to go shop.. :/
Does any mummy feel rectum pressure?? I have been feeling rectum pressure for the past few days...abit worried coz dont know why felt so heavy as though like I need bowel movement but I dont think it's the need to go toilet.
thanks Lingz12 ! seems tailbone ache is usual while preggy . cos i afraid i am unusal as tailbone may lead to diffculty in walking . wonder what will happen in mths to come
Hi kan chiong mummy, never experience that.. but i suggest if you r worried best is to call your gynae to ask? I had rip cage pain after sneezing n coughing non stop on wed n ytd that made me very worried hence i went to see gynae today to ensure baby is fine.. Indeed he is fine cos gynae said he is happily turning n kicking away.. haha.. So maybe if the situation persists you may want to call up to reassure ya? Take good care.
Elsalisa, STwoo & Meltie, cannot imagine the pain you gals experience! Do take good care ok? Rest more too..
So far i've only experience butt pain? And it only hurts on my left side.
Started not long after i found out i'm pregnant again.
Now it only hurts when i walk too much. Sometimes pain until i can't even walk properly :/ Even sit/lie down makes me pain also.
I ask my gynae and she only say is muscle problem. Hmm
Thanks JA13. *^▁^*
My butt dont't feel pain when I walk. But I cannot walk fast not like some of the preggy mummies they can walk quite fast and normal. I can feel my butt and tailbone pain when I sitting down. I think is the pressure on the nerve causing the pain.
Any mummy feel the whole body itchy? I'm experiencing itchiness everywhere randomly, any way to stop the itchiness?
Mrsjim, me! The itchiness is soo bad!! I know I shouldn't b scratching but it's unbearable! Applied Vicks n it helps a little. Got e allergy med from gynae also no use. So I stop cos I dont't like oral stuff afterall it's not working. Stopped using stretchmark cream also e same.. End up I bought Palmer oil for dry n itchy skin. Apparently e reason why we itch its cos e skin is stretching (although I wonder why my 1st pregnancy I didn't itch at all!) hmmm now my skin ESP my breast all got e scar quite bad due to e scratching but I know it will take times to recover.. sigh...
My son suddenly fell ill this wk.. sigh wonder why he got e flu n cough cos he only stays at hm e whole day.. But I take him out to the playground every morning.. Must be e playground.. Sometimes wonder why some parents one kind one... If your kids sick confine them at hm dont't let e germs spread around.. Sigh....
Approaching 17 wks but no sighs of movement ? Making me worried... Will b seeing my gynae this fri then can finally confirm e gender.. But more or less I m prepared that its boy .. Haha it's been 2 wks since I last wrote.. Me still puking. Damn sian.
Ok need to bring my son see e pediatrician ... Hope he gets well soon! Xmas round e corner!!!
Take care all mummies during this wet season.. Btw I would suggest that you all dont wear flip flops. They r comfy but very dangerous.. Slip easily n ppl step easily n make you trip also.. Get a better shoes with good friction.
Thanks mummies for encouragements!
Hmm ya do get a pair of good shoes.. i'm currently seriously gonna ditch my haviannas.. tripped afew times when the sole bent and the rubber strap came off.. I was shopping in IMM , alot of good brands are having discounts in their outlet stores.. like Clarks, Hush Puppies, Geox, etc.. you can go take a look! I shall go find my Scholl slippers and wear..
As for the butt and tailbone pain.. its been weeks.. seem to get used to the pain just like my jaw pain.. my jaw pain lessened, but now its the tailbone butt pain that has worsened alot.. hope it just comes and goes.. pray that baby shifts to a correct position that doesn't press on any nerves.. last time i had shooting nerve pain down the side of my legs! Leg cramps multiple times a night.. really not looking forward to that.. hmm today i bend down also pain, sit up , lie down also pain as ling as i shift my butt or my legs.. getting into the car wih one leg first is torturing.. same for doing many things.. Pain pain.. sacrifices of motherhood..
Wah tonight i feel so bloated! Tummy like 6-7mths! :/ but in the morning it shrinks back down.. haha
Mummies, i think our skin can get more sensitive during pregnancy.. my normal rash on arms n legs aggravated and spreaded to bigger areas.. lotsa red spots.. easily irritated by mozzie bites .. then will be it itchy n red.. sighh i try to put more moisturiser... last pregnancy it spreaded to my tummy! imagine red dots over my tummy.. ppl pregnant so pretty.. i full of rashes.. haha blame on my sensitive skin...
@piglim hope your itchiness go away soon. Anyway, dont't worry so much.. I only started feeling my baby's at 17 weeks 2 days. I think some people just take longer time to be able to feel the baby? Hope your son gets well soon! and yea, gotta agree with you on the flip flop part!!! I tripped and fell the other day at the train station because someone stepped on my slipper.
I realize it's getting kinda quiet in here. Must be cause of the holiday season. :P Merry Christmas in advance to all mummies!
Just woke up to go toilet and now can't get back to sleep...haha...it always happen to me at night...need to take awhile before I went back to sleep again in the middle of the night after waking up...
I'm mostly wearing normal flats now whenever I go out so that won't let pple step easily or my Birkenstock...and my hubby will always hold on to my arm now whenever we are outside just to make sure I walk properly and I dont bump into pple when walking...
Im gg into 20 weeks but frankly speaking I still can't really feel baby movement yet...maybe I just can't tell how to identify the movement...I only feel like thumping feeling as though like a strong heartbeat or pulse and mostly it's at night in the middle of night and whenever I lie on the side and I can feel it on the side of the stomach that I'm lying on...sm pple tell me it could be the hiccups of babies but sm pple say it might just be your own stomach pulse...so I really dont know...I hope I can really identify the movement distinctly soon...
any mummy experience like stomach muscle feeling sore and achy? In Chinese is like the stomach muscle feeling 'suan1'?haha.. This 2 night while I'm sleeping...I felt that these 2 nights and I just can't help but stretch the muscles....wonder izzit because of my sitting position as I always sit 45 degree reclining on bed or the babies are growing so causing the stomach muscle to feel achy at night whenever I felt relaxed while sleeping...I dont feel it in the day though...I felt it 1-2 times in the first trim and my gynae say it's because of the growing babies...
it's a Sunday!! Happy Sunday to all the mummies and enjoy the festive season mood...now I'm trying to catch back abit more of sleep...it's abit too early to wake up now on a Sun!!
Me also awake n couldn't sleep cause my gal conquered my side of the bed... I dont like to wear shoes ESP wet weather still prefer slipper but seems difficult to get a good nice pair.
I do feel itch here n there but not tht serious so didn't pay much attention, but do scratch abit more here n there... I cannot walk fast too, will get breathless very fast.
Have a good weekend to all too.
My gyane say it's due to body changes. Need to prepare
is there a facebook group?? Can add me? Novlove85@yahoo.com.sg
Hi mrsjlim, I had really bad rashes during the first trimester. I'm using QV cream as I dislike putting moisturiser on myself. However, QV cream is easily absorbed into the body. My gynae and dermatologist said that it's suitable but not strong enough to prevent stretch marks though. I'm using weleda stretch mark massage oil - easily absorbed and smells pleasant (to me).
I had aches at one side of my butt when I walked too and it comes and goes
Just want to ask mummies if they have been taking any tonics? I know we aren't suppose to take ginseng for now and it's quite a contentious issue and it becomes a who-says-what problem. I found this website and I've just been taking chicken soup, multi-vits, DHA and Vit C that's all. Any mummies has recommendations for diy, homemade tonics, please share! Thank you!
Wow it's the week before Christmas and some of us are already at the midway mark.. jiayou all! I'm seeing my gynae next Monday and I'm so excited! Boy or girl, we will be equally happy and especially if it's a girl, I will take extra care to reassure her of our love because for me, my dad and other relatives kinda wanted/were expecting a boy and my whole life I felt that and it's not a nice feeling
dont't wear slippers e.g havianas, I dont't think it gives enough support for our feet... try and get those kind of strappy sandals which are waterproof and airy, yet support your feet well... no particular brand to recommend, but I think good to get those with straps at the back too, so you dont't have to worry about your sandal slipping off, haha...
Anyone noticed you have much more phlegm than usual? It was causing me to puke when I try to clear my throat
I also noticed tiny red dots on my abdomen... and some tiny rough dots on my face... dont know how to explain, but I guess it's due to hormonal changes?
So far I have not't felt any movement from baby, but the weird/interesting thing I notice is that in the day, my abdomen still looks normal and no one can tell I'm pregnant.. then in the evening, it suddenly balloons! And then the bump gets obvious. Anyone know why ? My hubby and I joke that our baby only comes out at night to play, haha
Agreed with excitedwifey, the feeling is no good when ppl your family is hoping for a boy.
Yes, I do think I have more phlegm n giving me hard time when trying to spit out whenever I brush my teeth.
I think it's normal to have flatter stomach in the morning compared to evening. Some explained as the force of gravity. We rest flat while sleeping n hence waking up with flatter stomach. After the whole day of standing n sitting, tummy will pull down by gravity making it look bigger.
